I was going to say this is a major plot point in Snowcrash as well
You clearly do not understand much about Jewish cultural identity and history if you don’t understand how much of a founder effect there is in Ashkenazi genetics and how little admixture from non Jewish populations there was. A pre-war Jew in Berlin would be much much much more closely related to me than a non-Jewish…
“ Jewish (which first of all isn’t an ethnicity”
Godddd how annoying.
I never thought of weaponizing Ask A Manager into malicious compliance, that’s brilliant!
I’m in Amsterdam! I love my internship, but my roommate is... meh. Like an improvement on my previous roommates, but a very mansplain-y 22 year old who WILL NOT SHUT UP ABOUT HIMSELF. I was out cooking, with Star Trek on my laptop, and he came out to talk to me and kept taaaalllllkkking. Like, you’d think the watching…
Who paid for her tea and cake??
But god, fuck DPW. Oh my god I would have lost my cool IMMEDIATELY.
We'll have to have a GT meet up when I get down there, and I'll tell you all about it!
I had Dakine messenger bags (oh, 2008)for many years, good choice! I actually had to upgrade to a larger, better backpack myself because I’ve been having shoulder pain.
Haha I can’t believe Fjällraven's kommunistpuckel (communist hump) Kånken is the thing that jumped across the pond!
Thank you! I’m actually waiting to hear back from one in Amsterdam, oddly enough.
Ahahaha, I’m gonna imagine my Irritating Friend as Wesley Crusher ;)
I knew at a very young age that I could not really depend on the ones I should be able to depend on....and that can mess you up in terms of trust and having hope or expectations. I feel like my early life, I was kind of like Forrest Gump—I would not really even know what to hope for-I would just manage to get myself…
And also that it’s okay if whatever new thing doesn’t make you ~happy~ and it’s also okay for you to hope that it could. That’s a super human thing to want, even if it isn’t realistic.
Most of these parents are old enough to have relatives that remember what life was like before antibiotics or what the polio epidemic was like. Penicillin wasn’t widely available until the 40s.
Just a little whine:
I’m searching for an internship as a creative strategist/planner, and fuck, are the internship listings RIDICULOUS. No one can agree what the job titles actually mean — I just applied to a position that was labeled “assistant project manager” because the listed duties were NOT PROJECT MANAGEMENT…
Oh man, I’m so sorry *hugs*
He made a new one!
I haven’t thought about bonsai kitten for years!
