What I’m doing now, as of June, 2022

Organizing

  • I served on the board of Encompass over the last couple of years. Encompass is now closing. For me, it’s been sad, stressful, and time-consuming. I will say more about this later.
  • I am working on a couple of accountability processes with men.

Wellness and Social

  • I continue to go to talk therapy every week.
  • I enjoy regular running, biking (for transportation) and and swimming. I ran the Get In Gear 5K at the end of April and that went very well. I am considering signing up for another triathlon.
  • I traveled to Denver, Colorado in January to visit friends, family and activists and to Southern California for the LEAD conference and visiting people. Both visits were great, though I got covid on the first visit and during the second visit

Learning and Growing

  • I finished my Internal Family Systems study group this winter
  • I continue studying with a group of movement healer folks
  • I will be joining the Coalition of Asian American Leaders Making Our Voices Effective for Equity cohort this summer
  • I will be a farmed animal advocate mentor for the second half of 2022.
  • Attempting various online dating here and there, happy to meet women

Community

  • I continue to serve on the board of my townhome association. This is a challenge to contribute something meaningful.

Employment

  • I am fundraising for United Renters for Justice. This has been very fulfilling and meaningful. I appreciate how the organization faces adversity with empathy and transformation. It’s challenging to find the time in my life to get this work done.
  • I do bike delivery for Brake Bread. I enjoy spending time outside and I feel like I have gotten better at this work.
  • I have two other nonprofit contract jobs. Both are fulfilling.
  • I see a career counselor regularly and talk to a career development buddy regularly as well.
