TONIGHT: AMA with Omisade Burney-Scott
In one hour we’re hosting our monthly “Ask Me Anything,” this time with the amazing Omisade Burney-Scott, creator of Black Girl’s Guide to Surviving Menopause. You can ask her anything about menopause, her style, Durham, NC hotspots, where she got those glasses — literally anything. Our AMAs are casual affairs – we’ll be text chatting on The TueNight Social via an open thread, no video – so come as you are (glorious.) This is for TueNight Social members only so make sure to join!
My favorite way to sleep well is to tire myself out with exercise. It has to be hard, though. Just going for a walk won’t do it. So instead I walk an hour with 25 pounds of weights in a backpack — referred to as “rucking.” Friends put me on to this habit during the pandemic, and I have continued four or five times a week on my own.
STORY: Call Me the Schvitzer Sister
By Beth Arky
You’re at a swanky party. The temperature seemed fine when you got there. But soon enough, you feel sweat forming on your scalp, your forehead, under your eyes. Panicked, you scan the room but everyone else is as cool as a cucumber. You find a napkin and self-consciously start blotting.
Welcome to my world.
I start dripping the minute I exert myself in the slightest. It can be downright depressing to spend time getting ready, only to turn quickly into a hot mess.
Happy Memorial Day, TueNighters!
