thank you i love you too. i keep trying to remind myself that i can and have kicked ass on no sleep but it’s not working. i think it’s more the concept of being totally exhausted and also displaced/not able to fully relax bc i won’t be home. i just ate some chocolate so hopefully that works.
artemisiaofhalicarnassus said:jesus that sounds awful i’m so sorry. but i know you can make it through! you are so smart and amazing. just keep thinking of how good it’s gonna feel two nights from now when you can sleep in your own bed and you’ll get there! i believe in you! <3
omg i’m going to sleep for as long as possible on wednesday. literally from the second i walk in the door until like 30 min before i have to be at work on thursday. ugh this week SUCKS. working for the weekend, man.
artemisiaofhalicarnassus said:i’m sorry friend :( what’s going on?
i procrastinated writing a paper again (obvi) and it’s due tomorrow so i need to write it right now. but then i also have to get up at 6am bc i have class in nyc tomorrow so i have to take the train in (earlier than usual to make a 9am lecture). and then i can’t even come home after class like usual— i’m sleeping on a couch tomorrow night at my old apartment bc i have meetings all day wednesday. and it’s just too much for me to comprehend without a break in between it all. i’m just so not prepared at all. i want to cry but i’m so tired i don’t even think i can.
im so so overwhelmed tonight ugh
i feel like once you were emo in middle school youre low key emo for the rest of your life, like you could be 20 in the middle of college wearing uggs or whatever but once you hear the first key to the black parade/i write sins/sugar we’re going down you sprout an imaginary fringe and start yelling your lungs out like its 2007 all over again
“Listening to the timbre of the conversations at the Dane County Farmers Market, one of the largest in the country, you’d think the topic was vaccination or Gaza. “What exactly is in this scone?” “Are your emus happy? How much space do they have to roam free?” “When you say ‘flour’ on the label, what kind of flour is that?”
Yet food pantries remain full of the same canned pumpkin and expired boxed meals they always have. Obese people are shamed and told what to eat, while people deemed skinny enough to have an eating disorder are also shamed for not taking care of their “health.” There is a serious disconnect here that should tell anyone who’s paying attention that this is not about justice or health in any form––it is about vanity.
When asking the server how the animal being served was prepared, no one seems to wonder whether that server has basic health insurance or whether that server is affected by the fact that the restaurant industry has one of the highest rates of sexual harassment and lowest rates of pay. When waxing poetic about the “salt of the Earth” farmers from which they buy their unpasteurized milk, no one seems to worry that an estimated 10 percent of American farm workers are children. When pearl-clutching over the things we “don’t know” about GMOs, as Kavin pointed out, no one seems to be concerned about their presence in groceries found at Price Rite––only products sold at Whole Foods.
If you are not as concerned about the people handing you your food in the restaurant as you are about the pigs on the farm where it was grown, your approach is classist….If you start telling someone all about your new trendy diet or asking them about theirs without knowing if they have an eating disorder that may be triggered by your prattle, your approach is ableist. If you tsk-tsk at people who are overweight for what they are eating and claim you’re concerned about their health, yet you’re not actively campaigning to make healthy food more accessible and affordable, your approach is sickening and I don’t want you in my activism.”
As the middle Fire Sign, Leo enjoys being in the center - center of attention and center stage, to be specific. This Zodiac Sign is like fire at its peak; strong and steadily sharing its warmth and light. Leo is dependable, and grandiose, with a knack for making their presence known. With such a regal nature, Leo can comfortably command a crowd.
spent the weekend in New York again
