It seems like October flew by, but November is when things start to get really busy, I think. The end of the year creeps up before you know it, and the holidays always come with a lot of activities and events, too.
I thought it might be fun to share some of the things that I have going on in the next month.
This month, the Broadway in Pittsburgh series starts again (that’s my name for it, not the technical one!). I saw Mean Girls this past weekend, which I absolutely loved – it was the perfect mix of references to the movie while still being its own thing. I also have tickets for A Bronx Tale later this month – I don’t actually know much about it, but I’ve heard good things, so I’m excited.
On Wednesday I’m going to hear Antoni from Queer Eye talk and do a cooking demo at CMU! I watched the newest season of Queer Eye over the weekend to hype myself up even more. After getting to see JVN (see this post) and Karamo (in this post), I guess I’m making it my mission to meet all of the Fab Five!
Then the week after, I’ll be telling my Pittsburgh Story with PublicSource at The Ace Hotel. I loved writing about accessibility in Pittsburgh, and loved even more the outpouring of support that came from my article! I’m looking forward to talking about the story behind my story, and hearing about the other speakers’ Pittsburgh stories, too. Don’t forget to get your ticket here if you want to join us!
On the 15th and 16th, Headspace is coming to Pittsburgh! I can’t go to everything, but I’m very excited to join Andy for a live guided meditation. I am not amazing in my meditation practice, but I’m trying to get back into the habit. I’m really interested to see what it’ll be like to experience it live.
I’m also excited to attend the Disability, Inclusion, and Access: Moving Forward conference being held at the Heinz History Center on the 21st. With a keynote address being given by the head of the Ford Foundation, the whole focus is on how disability has been largely overlooked in the planning and programs of nonprofits.
Finally – I’m traveling to DC! I had a ton of weekend trips over the summer – but they were all for something specific – a conference, a wedding – and while they were all really fun, they weren’t necessarily relaxing. I feel like I’m finally ready to travel again after all of our summer trips, and I’m really excited to relax and explore. We have plans to visit Mt. Vernon while we’re in DC, which I’ve never been to, so it should be great.
And that basically takes us into December; into the very thick of the holiday season.
