Theoretically, I just finished a social media project for a conference on Friday. I say theoretically because I spent the last two days at home with an interesting depression, so beyond making sure that one of my team was there to get the work done, I didn’t do a thing.

You see, I do a lot of things. Some of the titles for these things might not even exist yet. I know for sure I’m a Spoken Word poet, writer, blogger, amateur journalist, activist and organizer.
