Tqwana Explains…Having Free Time

Time is on my side/Yes it is – The Rolling Stones

What a novel concept it is, to go to work during the day and actually come home at night. Home. Not school. Not guest lecture. To have time to work out if I choose. Or cook dinner at a reasonable hour. To read for pleasure. To binge-watch television.

To live a life seemingly normal.

But in the interest of avoiding idleness, I plan to use my new-found hours of leisure to actually go places in this city called The Big Apple. How liberating to not have to worry about due dates and GPAs anymore. *le sigh*

Oh, the possibilities… Author signings. Happy Hours. Movies. Dinners with friends. Maybe a show on Broadway. Road trips. And it’s summer! Parks are open. Flowers are in bloom. It’s a good time to have time on your hands.

Until next time…check out my slideshow of good times in NYC.
