There's hardly been a minute this month I haven't felt guilty about relaxing and doing something nice for myself... in fact, I feel guilty just taking the time to post this video (including the guilt I feel about taking this one night off to see my "let's go to a rally or academic lecture" friends, who I haven't seen in weeks? Months?) NEGL, I don't remember a single day this entire month I *didn't* cry because of the intense pressure I feel to keep up with my ever growing amount of responsibilities.
But as my hero, the wise Audre Lorde, once wrote: "Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare." 🙏
Grateful for awesome friends and dogs and bonfires and making fun of the MAGA hat wearing, white,18 year-old incel who clearly thought he was ~super edgy and subversive~ for wearing it to a feminist lecture. Newsflash: there is *nothing* new or revolutionary about being a racist and misogynist. #bitchbye
Anyway, please enjoy the #dog
🐶 and the #bonefire
