i needed this today:

“If you’re actually serious about treating burnout — yours, your partners, your future children’s — you have to be serious about treating it for people you might not even know. If you want to actually make life better, more livable, less of a slog for yourself, that involves making it better for a whole lot of other people as well. . . You don’t need a better organizational app. You just need to legitimately and actionably care about other people.”


Hey! i put together a mashup of a couple few lists i had to hand, and while there are 31 prompts, there’s no numbers by them in the hopes that i don’t feel super anxious about working through something i am not feeling on a particular day.

Please feel free to use the list and/or method!!

Have fun out there, friends!

I compiled a google drive of anti-racism/whiteness readings for my writing course students

cause the best way to teach people to read and think critically is to confront their own shit

A lot of it is from the book We Have Not Been Moved: Resisting Racism and Militarism in 21st Century America by PM Press


New podcast idea courtesy of chatting with folks last night: La Joie de Cuisiner with Jean Luc in which old man Picard is just trying to be a youtube cooking personality and spread the farm to table lifestyle, but keeps getting interrupted by intergalactic politics

My nails look the way Madeleine L’Engle described the moonlight that pegasi drink and that makes me ridiculously happy.

It's a little bit of a day, and i am getting some things done that are "productive" in between bouts of pain.

But at least i am also re-reading Finder, and it's just actual magic? And it's been fun doodling Jaeger, so there's also that.

Come Friday, there will be photographic evidence of this monumental achievement

Of bread, that is over half a foot longer than i am tall
