Today's Mighty Oak

Camp NaNoWriMo 2018 July 8



I’ll do another ‘blog’ type of writing today, perhaps that is what my weekend writing will become (this month is all about getting in the writing habit and see what I like and what I don’t, so why not experiment a bit).

This morning got up and ran a beautiful (although maybe slightly pollen filled) run through Schenley Park before heading to yoga at Phipps.  After that, four of us went to the Pirates pride game!

Two of us hit up the tailgate party beforehand, which included a donation drive for a new homeless shelter for queer youth.  While we only make up about 4-10 percent of the population (numbers vary), queer youth are 40% of homeless youth on the street, because they are thrown out of their homes simply for how they were born.  I was hoping to see the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence there, as they’re doing a ton of work for Proud Haven, but I’m sure they need a break, so I hope they could enjoy the game outside of face!

The game was fun (I got wings, saw the pierogie race), and we even won!  Headed to Local afterwards to grab a drink and let the traffic die down…and then we got lost in the parking garage, so that was a fun adventure!  Check out the photos from the day here.

Back to the grind tomorrow, and it’s shaping up to be a very busy week!
