Ugh I have no idea how to write / . Why is everything so difficult? It feels the same way when I have to write a cover letter... 😕 😒 😅

OK, I am a software engineer? Interested in interpersonal relationships and future and AI and speculative fiction? Unable to create art or to have a physical exercise but able to chat on the internets from the comfort of my couch (which is especially comfortable when my spouse is there)?

“A college class had two teaching assistants: one male and one female. At the end of the semester, the students scored the male TA higher on course evaluations, while the female TA got five times as many negative reviews.

There’s just one problem: They were the same person”

“Centrism” is neither a virtue nor an act of pragmatism. It’s a position adopted by those who are comfortable enough w/n the status quo that their primary concern is to never rock the boat, even if that means searching for middle ground b/w a fascist coup & a foundering democracy

Мне регулярно снятся сны про то, как я уже взрослая попала в школу, но расписания у меня нет, и четверть заканчивается, и я не ходила, и не могла ходить из-за работы, и на экзамен опаздываю

I think a big problem with kids' allegories for racism is it's like "the green people and the purple people hated each other just for being the other color, isn't that silly?" and not "the purple people kidnapped the green people and treated them like livestock for 100s of years"

Reminder: protests have been occurring across the country nonstop since George Floyd was murdered. Louisville has been marching consistently for Breonna Taylor. The media just got tired of it. The NBA players are forcing their attention back. It’s a movement, not a moment

The Port that was destroyed in the was a main point in distributing food to the country. The wheat silos were destroyed. This is horrific for a country already going through an economic crisis, with many unable to afford food.

It begins: Election hopefuls were given 24 hours to respond.

Some candidates who took part in the democratic primary election 2 weeks ago were asked if they would veto the gov't motions if the pro-democracy camp secured a majority.
