I'm giving my new book one last read-through before it goes off to production (out in Dec) and I'm definitely at that point where I find myself amazed that I wrote so many words - in sentences even - for like 300+ pages and that it's actually....good?
As someone who grew up poor I have never looked at an expiration date on food - especially food that isn't meat.
But these kids of mine are looking at the dates on the bread in the fridge (& YOU KNOW BREAD LASTS FOREVER IN THE FRIDGE) & are trying to say it's gone bad. 🤷🏽♀️
My oldest goes off to college in a little over a week. I'm just cherishing the time he's spending with his little brother right now. It will mean so much to them both in the coming months. https://t.co/rJ13g0YECK
Y'all. I stopped taking my ADD meds because of various issues with side effects and I am STRUGGLING. I can't focus on anything.
I want to give myself some time before I try any new meds so no med suggestions please, but if you have any non-med tips please feel free to share.
While I hope others read this chapter to understand the harm being done to this child and countless others like her, I think it's clear that Judge Mary Ellen Brennan needs to be removed from the bench. https://t.co/X44S8G4laL
Apparently a white woman scientist has been masquerading online as a queer Indigenous woman scientist and all of that abhorrence was only discovered after the pretender had her fake Twitter account “die of COVID.”
And it’s only Monday.
Durkan called the COVID-19 relief package “irresponsible” because it would "use up about 90% of the city’s emergency and rainy-day funds." This brings up a very big question: What does @MayorJenny think an emergency is? Obviously a pandemic does not qualify.
A year ago, I was turned away from *two* obgyn surgeons' offices when I had a huge dermoid cyst, because I'm not a woman.
I was referred to both offices by a LGBTQ health clinic.
I had to use back channels to get a surgeon for a hysto.
This was in *New York City.* https://t.co/XhWRvqcqXx
We’re all better for a Kwame Ture & a John Lewis existing. Principled tension within movements strengthen the work. They tighten philosophies, tactics and outcomes. It pushes us toward our greater selves.
The only proper historical outlook refuses to throw one away for the other
.@BarackObama calling out these federal agents gassing protestors & this voter suppression and this police violence and telling the truth is exactly what #JohnLewis would have wanted him to do today.
You don’t get in Ebenezer’s pulpit and do anything less.
Trump on April 27: “I never even thought of changing the date of the election. Why would I do that? November 3rd. It’s a good number. No, I look forward to that election.”
He said Biden’s suggestion that he might attempt to delay it “was just made-up propaganda.” https://t.co/3qAcm2fh2o
“We came out here in t-shirts, they started gassing us. We came back with respirators, they started shooting us. We came back with vests, they started aiming for the head... And now they call us terrorists. Who’s escalating this? It’s not us.” @MacSmiffhttps://t.co/quc0qwfncg
