Schemes

That time I went on a lovely vacation, arrived home a day early, and pretended that I was still on vacation.

"What?! That happened?! Oh noes! My work computer is broken and there’s no internet here!"

Sorry/Not sorry.

Western DPRK Propaganda: The Worst, Occasionally Hilarious, and Often Racist, Lies →

watchingmedia:

a lot of this stuff gets propagated here in america. korean and asian americans really need to pay attention to all this because these racist portrayals and depictions, these dehumanizations and demonizations directly and indirectly affect them, and can translate into some extreme forms of anti-korean and anti-asian sentiments and violences.

Anxiety + Cold

Did you know that if you combine Web MD, anxiety, and a cold, you can physically manifest enough pain through paranoia and stress that your doctor will prescribe you muscle relaxers and painkillers that make you feel like you’re totally drunk?

Well, now we both know.

It’s been over two weeks and they haven’t written back. 
Go figure, but in response I’ve organized a few events where women, PoC, and queers outnumber cishet white dudes.
I’m the agenda.

Career First (tw: ableism)

Last year, I went to a conference where a speaker decided to say “don’t act retarded”, “that’ll sound retarded”, and continued to go on that way to hammer home a point (ironically) about appearing professional.

Fast forward to today.

They emailed me to get my organization to endorse their event.

I got to reply back, no.

I wrote a lengthy email outlining ableism, how it’s shitty, and how they can improve their programming. If they demonstrated that they’ve changed, we can revisit an endorsement, but for now our organization doesn’t even approve of their community involvement.

It feels damn sweet to finally get to tell some terrible person off.

Sculling in Chicago

dariadixon replied to your post:Update
OMG where do you row??? YOUR LIFE IS SO AWESOME

Lincoln Park Boat Club! They offer a lot of beginner classes. The membership is like 80-90% women. All of my instructors are rad as all get out.

I don’t know how rivers work, but apparently the teams row from the boathouse down to Maria’s Community bar in Bridgeport. Team efforts!

There’s a lot more spandex than I would’ve thought.

Update

  • Lake Michigan is still too cold to swim in.
  • My hands are “maple” because there was a hole in my gloves while I stained new Ikea furniture.
  • I contemplated paying someone to cut my hair for the first time in my adult life, but took a nap with my cats instead.
  • I’ve taken up sculling which is fancy pants row-boating and ducklings came up to my boat.
  • I learned how to make cheese!
