“And I pray, oh my god do I pray-
I pray every single day, for a revolution...” It was surreal seeing so many Buffalonians turn out last Saturday despite the weather. You came, you sang, you danced, you donated. We had over 300 amazing people supporting @thepridecenter in the most fun way! Missing our V-Day Dance hard this weekend.
Another plaque done!!! Thank you @chucktownamy for taking advantage of my “Donate to Team for Kids for a plaque”
Okay people...I️ am $380 away from my goal and only 11 days left. I️ might go into begging mode Amy took advantage and had me paint up a gift for a friend who just had a baby. I️ get to paint, I get to run, a little newborn has a personalized gift & most importantly, children across the US will have more funds to aid in their free after school programs!
For a $50 or more donation, I️ will paint something for YOU! Everyone wins!
Set an example. Help others. Don’t be afraid of your goals. That’s my 2018!

I was already having a wonderful Friday off from work when Lover returned from walking Roxy last night and handed me a little box.
(In my mind I thought “no, it can’t be.. NO freakin way”) While I was working @71above this past Tuesday, I met the loveliest gentleman who was celebrating his birthday with his two equally lovely sons and one more equally lovely man. At some point towards the end of their dinner, the birthday boy asked me about my earrings (which were a pair of ear crawlers and which happen to be the style I am completely obsessed with!) So I told him they are my absolute favorite style and were a cheap purchase from Amazon. Well, wouldn’t you know, that this man is the person who actually designed the FIRST EVER of its style back in the 80’s and the called them Ear Pins! He must’ve been touched by how much I loved his design because he said, “I want to send you a pair of the original.” And then.... CRAZIEST OF ALL...he actually DID!!! The very next day! AND, he included the sweetest personal note AND, TWO pairs instead of One and they are both so gorgeous that I can’t pick my favorite!! Knowing the kind of people and the efforts of kindness that exist within businesses out there makes me want to make sure that I pay it forward and sing the praises of those who go above and beyond to make someone feel special!! Thank you so much Mr José Jay of @orogem for truly making my day and putting an absurdly big smile on a face!

Still geeked tf out that Jennifer Givhan was one of our readers for La Sociedad last night. Her first book, Landscape with Headless Mama, really awakened me as a writer when I was going through the difficult adjustment period that is your first semester of graduate school. I made a point to tell her, as she was signing my copy of her new book, the impact of her work on my writing. I can only hope that some day my work will impact another lost poet down the road #payitforward#lasociedad#supportpoets#jennifergivhan#buyherbooks .
