Emailing with music to lower stress levels.
DINNER, SELF-CARE, AND MOAR READING IF NECESSARY.
today: wake up feeling that, no, I really can’t. shower, breakfast, therapy. home: STUDY. lunch. study/housework rotation. maybe some emailing: “job,” HPA stuff, whatever. I DON’T KNOW. dinner. more studying. bed. WHATEVER.
I really can’t handle it, and I can’t handle attitudes from people, and I just am so over everything and so overstretched that it doesn’t even make sense.
Here’s a sure-fire way to know that you hate women: when an incident of intimate partner violence in which a man knocks a woman unconscious gains national attention and every question or comment you think to make has to do with her behavior, you really hate women. Like, despise.
There is no other explanation. There is no “I need all the facts.” There is no excuse. You hate women. Own it.
Now, you probably don’t believe you hate women. You probably honestly think you’re being an objective observer whose only interest is the truth. You are delusional.
We have this problem in our discourse around the most important challenges we face where we feel we have to be “fair to both sides.” But sometimes, one of those sides is subjugation and oppression. If you’re OK with legitimizing that side in the interest of “fairness,” you’re essentially saying you’re OK with oppression as a part of the human condition. That’s some hateful shit."
today: up (yuck). yoga. shower. panic attack, oh boy! now: chill out with tumblies and ambient Hogwarts Express sounds. finish packing. breakfast (zucchini pancakes!). drive to internship. administrative hour, intake, lunch, supervision, session, more administrative stuff, outreach team meeting. head straight to Liz’s. make a pizza! dinner w/ Liz & her husband. maybe walk the dog. maybe read a bit or watch something. bed ASAP. up again at 6:15 or so. shower, half-dry hair, grab a granola bar and tea and drive to internship. staffing in the morning. lunch. one session. group supervision. DRIVE HOME! date night = more pizza (wait…maybe we need another plan) + a movie. crash.
