Thanks, Erin, Lauren, and bunnies Willie (left) and Squash (right)!
-You become emotionally attached.
-You can’t hug them whenever you want to which is something you often forget.
-You find people who don’t judge you. At all.
-You have to learn time zones. That’s a real bummer.
-You find people who love you for you.
-You sometimes cry because you just love them so much and get super emotional when you realize they are thousands of miles away from you.
The game is not going well. I am suiting up for tabulating points…
Major dog shaming.
Thanks, Yingzi and bunny Glenn! Yingzi writes, “We celebrate something called Midsummer in Sweden during June and it’s tradition to wear a flower crown during that day.”
Guys! Guuys! Last night I went to see Wicked (which was great!) and I bumped into a friend I know from Alliance Francaise classes from years back. She’s a teacher now and she mentioned that she uses a couple of my short stories from way back when I was doing a story-a-week challenge in her course material and the kids like them.
Like seriously. Woooooooah.
This is an important message on how privilege really works.
it’s good to remember that we shouldn’t only define ourselves by our marginalized identities. for example I am cis, I am middle class, I am educated, I speak English, I am a documented citizen—remember all of those identities you possess that give you privilege.
Thanks, Nikki and bunny Rhino!
While back to school season always means I am busy at work (like, people actually call me — my phone never rings) the bright side is that the break room is bountiful with leftover snacks from all the meetings.
Even as I type this, I am eating a chocolate chip muffin. Mmmm!
