It is rumored that ICE will start raids tomorrow in many metropolitan areas. The below link includes a list of things to do if ICE approaches you or if you witness something.
I have been thinking a lot about the Holocaust lately. Experts say that what we are doing to people at the border is not dissimilar to what Hitler and the Nazis did to the Jews in at least the early stages of the Holocaust. I have been thinking about this a lot - particularly through the context of what we now think…
I am! I am rooting for Hadestown, the Prom, and What the Constitution Means to me.
Yesterday started out so well- my first full day with the house being completely mine, no scheduled interactions with anyone, and low expectations for productivity since I had just gotten back from a conference - and for another reason.
My now ex-roommate finally returned her keys yesterday. I locked the deadbolt (we have no keys for it - so it can only be opened from inside) and she called me and was like, “I think you locked the deadbolt - I can’t get in.” Yes, that was on purpose bc I knew you would just come in the apartment without even…
I’m stuck at LaGuardia hoping to get to Atlanta tonight. While I wait - talk to me about how you handle unwanted sexual attention.
I totally thought his voice would be deeper.
I don’t have anything intelligent to say about it except that I loved it so much! Saw it last night with some friends - and we all loved it. I want to go see it again right now. Anyone else seeing it this weekend? If not, GO!!!!
The movers came and took her stuff and she just left. She left a shirt ton of trash behind for me to deal with. She didn’t clean her shelves in the fridge. There is trash on the floor of her bedroom - pretty sure she didn’t clean that. She owes me $200. She tried to take some of my stuff with her. BUT SHE IS…
what is the first thing you would google?
I have some wee pots that I wanted to give a dipped look - this might be the way to do it. I also really think these letters are super cute.
We had a retreat today. At the end, we stood in a circle and very earnestly sang and swayed. It totes reminded me of the movie “Us.”
Tell me about your newfound loves. I should be clear - I don’t want to hear about romantic relationships - I want to hear about your newfound loves for things.
When you feel like you don’t want to, don’t feel like you are capable, when you feel too emotionally overwhelmed to keep persevering on a task - how do you get yourself to keep going?
It’s been a slow day here so I thought I’d do an OT so those of you without authoring privs and those of you who have stuff to say but are hesitant to do a whole post can talk about what’s going on for you!
Red is the best, green is the worst. Yellow and orange are only good if the flavor collection is atypical (like tropical!). Pink is always good, but super rare. Green is NEVER good. Purple tastes like despair
What’s on your vagenda for the day? How are things going for you? What’s good? What’s bad? What’s stressing you out - and what is buffering you against life’s stresses?
It is freezing here. I am working from home but am too cold to work at my desk, so am under the covers with my heated blanket!
So my roommate will be moving our at the end of May, and I will need a new roommate. My landlords are letting me be the sole person on the lease - which is great as I can sublet the room for less than a year. If my NIH grant gets funded, I may be making enough in 6 months to afford the whole apartment by myself,…
Talk about whatever you like - but here’s a a few probes:
