“I never had intimate friends, and the few who came close are in New York. By which I mean they’re dead, because that’s where I suppose condemned souls go in order not to endure the truth of their past lives.”
– Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Memories of My Melancholy Whores. (via communicants)

you should check out #AcademicAbleism on twitter, if you haven’t already.
I’m interested in more discussions on how this impacts students in lower grade levels. How does the young black girl feel about herself when she encounters a teacher who isn’t skilled in properly accommodating her learning disability? How is her future trajectory affected - will she #elementaryableism prevent her from even having access to/experiencing #academicableism?
When we went snorkeling with the manatees the water was really murky so they would just sneak up on you. I was just floating along and one would just bump into me. They are like 3,600 pound ninjas.
It just keeps…… getting. …. better

I started this daily video journal a while back. Then I completely forgot it existed for about six months. Came across it again today while I was trying to clean out my computer and thought I’d share. This is me talking for about 7m about my writing process and how it relates to my mental health.
That thing where you see a webcomic and you’re like, “Yep, that character is pretty much me today. …In fact, we’re even wearing the same sweater. Whoa.”
Some random factoids about me for no particular reason:
say it with me:
makeup is gender neutral
I whispered “makeup is gender neutral” out loud on the train and the guy next to me looked at me weird but then whispered “fuck yea” back
Bratton is not anti-futurology like me; rather, he is against simple-minded futurology. He thinks the TED style evades awkward complexities and evokes a future in which, somehow, everything will be changed by technology and yet the same. The geeks will still be living their laid-back California lifestyle because that will not be affected by the radical social and political implications of the very technology they plan to impose on societies and states. This is a naive, very local vision of heaven in which everybody drinks beer and plays baseball and the sun always shines.
Ready for battle
