Hey y'all, what do you do when Aunt Flo leaves you curled up in a ball?
I decided to switch from my trusty antiperspirant to Tom's of Maine deodorant, and it made my armpits peel. Skin sloughing off all over the place. Yuck.
I've had the last two weeks off (thanks, grad school!), but I have to go back to work tomorrow. Today, I planned to go to the gym, buy groceries, do my laundry, and make dinner for a friend. Instead, I made a snowman, had sex, canceled on my friend, and ate most of a bag of dried apricots for dinner because I didn't…
Cool piece of slam poetry making the rounds on facebook; thought I'd share:
Say you're a broke grad student. You have been invited to the wedding of an old friend, but you cannot attend due to financial restrictions / work commitments. How much should you spend on a gift from the registry?
Somehow, it is legal that I am working 75-100 hours per week and making $1.50/hour doing seriously draining (physically and emotionally) work with people with special needs. I'm sorry, but if you were a parent to someone with special needs, would you want someone providing their care for a week to be that exhausted…
Hey GT, I don't post with great frequency so you may or may not even recognize me . . . but I've been posting for over two years so I figure I won't just silently disappear. I am peacing out until late August. I'm going on a grand adventure of summer employment and I won't have internet access for personal use.
I just saw this on facebook. The comments are largely depressing, but I suppose that speaks to the demographic who would "like" an insurance company on facebook? This one was my favorite in terms of the density of ignorance expressed:
Disappointing thoughts when watching this interview:
How should you acknowledge mother's day to a friend who is struggling with infertility and still trying to conceive? Particularly for a woman who is a member of the church of jesus christ of latter day saints, i.e. mormon?
Hey y'all. I don't eat enough vegetables, because I am poor. I eat a lot of rice and beans and lentils, and I'm starting to get better about incorporating tomatoes and avocados and onions sometimes, and I throw frozen vegetables into many of my rice and bean concoctions. However, I probably average, at best, like 1-2…
Welp. I've been locked down since just before 6:30. There are helicopters eeeeeverywhere and there are guards in my building. Made pancakes for the neighbors, because what else are you gonna do at a time like this? Internet hugs, please?
This post was my musing on today's events, because I did some crisis counseling today here in Boston. However, given my own shock, I'm going to reconsider and keep m private until I've had some time to process.
I know I'm going to be procrastinating tonight, so I figure it's my turn to post an #askablank thread. I'm a clinical social work grad student, an academic feminist, and a survivor of sexual violence, so if you have any questions, I'm happy to answer!
So If you scroll down, you will see that http://raffey.kinja.com/ posted "Ask A Black Woman" and invited commenters to ask her questions. I think that's a super cool idea, and now that we have these nifty subject lines, I propose that we make a thing of this. If you have a particular area of expertise or experience…
DRUNK LAUNDRY NIGHT. The drunk has happened . . . now we shall see about the laundry.
Man. I have been SO LIED TO by the beauty industry. And I mean . . . duh. But really. I've been transitioning my products, and it seems that the less complicated they are, the better off I am. I've been using acne products for about a decade, but I started using Dr. Bronner's instead, and all of a sudden my skin is…
So for how long am I supposed to keep my facebook profile a red equal sign? How long for me to get my slacktivism points? Are we supposed to keep them up until June?
