I just want to fill you in on some things in case you missed them and let you know I’m leaving for Toronto on Thursday morning!
I decided to take the bus there, It’s a straight shot from New York, so Toronto is easy to get to, but it takes 9-10 hours. I know, I know, I know. I’m crazy, but you all knew that. Ha! I wanted this to be an adventure, something I’ve never done before. I wanted to hop on a bus and go to a city where no one knows my face or name. I wanted to challenge myself and do things that made me feel uncomfortable.
I have my whole trip planned already and I know all the things I’m going to do and am looking forward to hitting up this oasis that is a haven for black women. And guess what? I’ll be reporting live from Toronto. My computer is too valuable to take with me on a bus trip–I just don’t trust it– so I’ll be using Instagram from my phone to go live. I’ll be using Instagram and Instagram only so make sure you follow me on Instagram @jenpoeauthor to keep up with the action.
