it must be a little odd as a counseling/psych professional to see everyone rapidly defining and redefining terms like 'gaslighting', sharing infographics that inform the audience how to spot a gaslighter or abuser, frequently not even using consistent terms

like yeah death to the billionaires and the landlords but i am specifically going after the televangelists who target vulnerable seniors

for the first time since working here, i just watched a person turn around and walk away after reading the giant THIS IS NOT A COVID TESTING SITE sign on the door. i feel like i just gazed into the slightly-better timeline

my being the kind of obsessive prepper who has road salt year round enabled me to be so passive aggressive to my creepy neighbour last year

chrissy teigen is posting about terracotta heaters, i already can't cope with this decade

it's not just that i missed out on an early introduction into how computers actually work - i'm aware of all the 'for beginners' material out there that i could use to catch up - it's the freezing lack of confidence from being taken away from learning because my worth is measured by reproductive labour for my brothers and future husband

Show thread

with every passing day i am more furious with my mother for preventing me from taking computer courses in hs because 'computers are for boys' - and enrolling me in a cooking class instead so i could make better lunches for my brothers

The city of Minneapolis is starting to put up The Fencing and jersey barriers around all the government buildings and police stations here in prep for the Derek Chauvin (George Floyd's killer) trial.

I am once again asking the rebel alliance to concentrate attacks on the empire's forces in outlying solar systems where they are most vulnerable.

DIY emergency candle/oil lamp 

I know a lot of the US has power outages right now. Here is one way to make an emergency oil lamp; I use a half pint mason jar or jam jar, a 100% cotton T-shirt for a wick, some wire to hold the wick and some cooking oil for fuel. Vikings used canola (rapeseed oil) and Romans olive oil in their lamps. I used some solid copper electical wire striped of insulation. Twist the wire around a chopstick, slip it off, make a wider base. Put the wick in add oil, light.
