Agreed! I really hope he has some sense and retires ASAP. I really wish RBG had retired in 2013.
When RBG died, it was a foregone conclusion that abortion would be banned in red states. Actually, it was pretty much a foregone conclusion the moment that Trump won the election. But Hillary wasn’t “likeable” enough or whatever. Sorry I’m still bitter that we threw away the courts for a generation. But I saw the… Read more
We’re supposed to be everything. Nurturers, caregivers, the household manager, the social organizer, on top of everything all the time. And working. And we’re supposed to be sexy, we’re supposed to be an endless font of passion for the same person forever, yes we should be sexual and adventurous but within the neat… Read more
It’s really hard to say, I’ve seen a few clips of her speaking Spanish and it’s really good. I asked a Spanish friend of mine and she said there’s a few things that are a bit off but her accent is really good. Like this is not a normal level of Spanish for people who just vacation there, so obviously she put a lot of… Read more
Thanks, this is really helpful and great. Volunteering is definitely something I want to do, now if only this stupid pandemic would end so I can be around other people!
Thanks for sharing this, it’s good to know that there’s hope even after so many years. I feel like I shouldn’t have stayed out of the workforce for this long but the financials just didn’t make sense until the little guy started kindergarten. And now I have this giant gap on my resume and I don’t know where to… Read more
I totally understand. Seriously when I was working I felt exactly the same way, although none of the jobs I’ve had was anything I was passionate about. And I do appreciate my freedom, I really do. But I think people who have never been unemployed for an extended period underestimate how lonely it can be and how the… Read more
So it’s interesting, I’ve been a stay at home mom for 10 years. And the reason that I became a stay at home mom was I was tired of bullshit jobs and US work culture. I originally majored in writing, hoping to be a writer. But even 17 years ago when I graduated, people only wanted to hire writers for free or nearly… Read more
I bought a cheap folding exercise bike ($150) and I bike while watching episodes of The Office on Netflix. It’s boring but it gets the job done.
It’s kind of weird/hilarious to see my childhood celebrity crushes who were adults when I was a child now dating women that are younger than me. Brad Pitt was my first major celebrity crush, when Interview with the Vampire and Legends of the Fall came out when I was 12/13 and he was like 30. His current girlfriend… Read more
This show scared the shit out of me when I was a kid, more than any other show. My parents should not have let me watch it. I remember in particular episodes on demonic possession and alien abduction that absolutely terrified me. But yes I’m here for the reboot.
For a long time, I’ve thought there was something wrong with me. And maybe there is something wrong with me, but it seems that it’s something more common than I previously thought, it’s just something that we don’t talk about much. I’ve never had an orgasm from anyone but myself. Ever. And I’ve never had an orgasm… Read more
I was in the same place a few years ago. I was wearing wide headbands with fibers every day and it still wasn’t flattering. I finally bit the bullet and started wearing a human hair topper 3 years ago. This is a partial wig that clips on the top of your head. It has its drawbacks but it has been life changing for me.… Read more
The most amazing protest I have ever attended was the airport protest after the Muslim ban in January 2017. People just started showing up spontaneously to the airports. By the time I got there, it was wall to wall people. And yet I was not afraid or anxious like I often am in crowds. I have never felt so connected… Read more
That sounds horrifying.
OMG, I had the exact same experience. Like I heard about the show and I was expecting it to demonstrate that he was wrongfully convicted and instead I finished convinced that no one else could have done this.
I’ve been rereading the books with my daughter, and I agree with you. It’s clear that Laura agrees with her father’s more humane view of Native Americans, rather than her mother’s harsh hatred. But Pa also assumes that he can just take their land so obviously he is still racist in the way that virtually all white… Read more
This is so well-stated. Rare to see nuanced and eloquent opinions on the internet these days.
