Rando. Like not all of the advice is even off base, but some of the things the guy is critiquing are literally part of the application process & some of our choices are wrapped up in the person we have as a mentor and the project itself.

Did a last ditch advert for a summer internship program on twitter on the organizational account. One guy keeps telling all the ways the org is doing this internship wrong (this is our 4th? year doing it) & then makes some comment about us expecting free labor. It’s a paid internship & his response to my 😕 was Read more

CUNY moved all their remaining students to the dorms in Queens (in a really haphazard last minute fashion that understandably freaked a lot of folks out).

The CUNY rumor mill is that the dorms will be used as sleeping facilities/barracks for like extra medical staff and military. Also they’re privately owned or run (at least some of them), which according to the chancelor is why refunds aren’t an automatic thing.

Seconding Kingdom of Copper, which is kinda the better version of the first book in that series (City of Brass). Characters more fleshed out (more show than tell), characters I didn't like are mostly sidelined, & Chakroboty is clearly getting more confident in her writing.

Meagen Spooner’s Sherwood, which far is what if Robin Hood was really Marian cosplaying as Robin. It’s good but kinda slow paced.

Yeah, one of the reasons my brother & I moved back in w/ mom & grandma full time is to run errands for ‘em.

I just got the Loreal Dream lengths shampoo/conditioner/creme & it’s got castor oil in it & it’s a new fave for getting my hair super clean and sleek while being lightweight & so detangling that I can go like 3 days between washes w/out having to use a seperate spray detangler.

If I like an author I’ll try and read all their things: Childrens lit definitely favors women authors: Nancy Farmer, Ella Enchanted (Gail Carson Levine is way too hit or miss to rec wholesale), Megan Whalen Turner, Patricia Wrede, Margaret Peterson Haddix, Eloise Jarvis McGraw (The Moorchild, Mara Daughter of the Read more

They’re already mad at her ‘cause she’s basically begging them to please please not alienate all the folk they need to be building bridges with ‘cause at least she understands that movement building is not community building and you need the latter to actually get folks to show up & vote.

Pearls are definitely a thing I'd only buy in person cause you wanna be able to touch em. Mom & grandma say they should be cool to the touch, but yes research!

So much of her stuff reminds me of the costume jewelry I inherited from my grandma, a lot of which she bought in Nola flea markets, so that’s also maybe why it’s vibing with you. Like I have a multicolored version of those earrings. But yeah like witsandsass said, it’s probably not real.

Yeah watching the first episode of hunters now & this portrait of 70s New York Jews is so weird. Especially his opening complaint about colleges - like then and now, Jewish kids too poor for an Ivy  go to CUNY which would have been free in the 70s . 🤦

I thought Raising Dion was really sweet but not feeling the ending. Trying to get into Umbrella Academy but gonna have to pay attention. I liked Netflix’s PR knock off next in fashion - it was nice seeing a team oriented show for the first half, even if the judging was the usual so so. Read more
