Further Reading/Bibliography:

Can I stop now? Are we good?

Honestly, I’m caught between crying laughing and the sheer level of information, competence and…can lists have sass? Because even before I got to the comment, the SHEER SIZE of the list possessed like, epic levels of sass, GIANT levels of sass, the dry, ordered, gazing-at-you-calmly-while-breaking-your-desk-with-reference-material-and-endng-by gently-overturning-a-box-of-loose-pages-of-information-over-your-head levels of sass, and wanting to get medievalpoc an ice pack and some anti-inflammatories for the amount of typing this work of art called for.  

And a tiara.  Because medievalpoc RULES.

"One of my favorite mottos, I actually have it written on a post-it over my computer. I look at it every single day. It was said by a poet named Rumi and it goes, ‘Do not be satisfied with stories, that which has come before. Unfold your own myth.’ And that is our challenge. Every single one of us, no matter the categories we have inherited. We must unfold our own myth. And it won’t be easy. We’re constantly navigating, rearranging, reinventing others’ expectation of ourselves everyday. But every word we write in the narrative of our own lives, we come closer to uncovering what’s beneath our own masks, maybe even embracing that true misfit, that true crazy one within. Oh, it’ll be a fight, that’s for sure, but that battle for your soul, for your authentic self. It’s worth it, isn’t it? It’s bold, it’s brave. In fact, I would say it’s heroic. So now, it’s your turn: tell me your story.
