Am I shivering because it’s cold in here or because I’m having an anxiety attack?

My dog sitter is the friend of this guy I am/was kinda seeing and is hella triggering in his communications and really fucked up. Like first of all, I was VERY clear that I would need a dog sitter until September, and now he’s claiming I never said that and that because I’ve “changed the timeline and shit” he wants me to give him the cash before I can have my dog back.

And I told him I can’t make it down this weekend, but can transfer it into his bank account before my friend would pick up my dog this weekend to move her to another home (because I was like whatever, I’ll just move my dog, not a big deal), and he said I was trying to fuck him over, but like he would be able to clearly check his bank and see that I’ve deposited the money.

And he keeps swearing and accusing me of lying and I just want my dog and now I’m freaking out in this coffee shop because he’s fucking holding my dog hostage even though I am trying my best to get the money to him.

I don’t even care if this isn’t real, this is beautiful.

I was at a protest over the weekend, demonstrating outside of this hella racist, orientalist opera and something happened there that I can’t stop thinking about.

In line for the show was this woman who owns a very important small businesses that’s been around forever. It’s a cultural landmark for Seattlites. I recognized her and thought “This is an important person. This is someone I want on my side.” So I decide to hand her a flyer and very gently asked her if she had any questions about why we were all out there. She asked me a simple question that I had already practiced a very well thought out response to.

As soon as I started talking, this other white person jumped in and shouted at her, telling her that this isn’t an intellectual exercise and that they would out her as a racist to her coworkers and community. The woman said they were scaring her and left on the verge of tears.

I get that anger is righteous and powerful and our work doesn’t have to be polite, but as an “ally” or whatever, you’re anger doesn’t get to take precedence over my autonomy. I chose a different direction and your responsibility in the movement is to support me, not speak for/over me. This was a relationship I was putting consideration and effort into and you shut it down immediately for your social capital and self satisfaction.

I felt invalidated and frustrated and so hurt. Pat yourself on the back, buddy. You’re part of the reason I don’t trust white folks.

For my birthday, someone drive me to the pig sanctuary and make the staff let me cuddle them.

Interns, fellows, please. Small baby bird noises. Turn down for staff hangovers.

Pls

7 QUESTIONS YOU SHOULD ASK AT THE END OF EVERY JOB INTERVIEW.

Click here to find out why these questions help you.

This is so important!

I never know what to ask and end up looking like a fool cause I don’t have a question prepared.

Don’t be me.

As someone who has interviewed and hired people, I’m going to say that that last question “Do you have any hesitations about my qualifications,” is actually a terrible idea.

1.) Often, I don’t even think of them until right before my meeting with the hiring committee. You definitely don’t want me talking about why I wouldn’t hire you to be one of the last and therefore most memorable parts of your interview.

2.) What if you have no way of laying my hesitations to rest? What if I say “I’m unsure about hiring someone who hasn’t developed the network connections necessary to succeed in this field?” And then what if you don’t have a good answer, and you just look at me. Or you give me a bad answer?

3.) You should know the position, the company, and yourself enough to foresee my hesitations and talk about them in the interview. Like when I ask what you think you can do for our organization/company/whatever, your answer should include “… and I know that I don’t have the same networking connections that other applicants might have, but I have a very outgoing and friendly attitude and I’m willing to attend every board meeting, and to reach out and make appointments to introduce myself to the big players in the game like soandso and blahblah until I’ve built up my network.”

Not really into how many compliments I’m getting from the Fellows on my outfit. I really like this new hat I got, so I’m a little more butch than usual, and I’m disconcerted with this microaggression of praising me for looking more masculine than usual.

Is it a fedora?

It’s a billed cap that says “#nguyening”

i read somewhere once that straight people can’t cross over running water? someone from the science side of tmblr confirm?

FALSE. 

This is a common misconception. Though crossing over running water causes straight people extreme pain and discomfort, they can do it if the situation is dire (i.e. there are sports on the other side of the water)

This is why you should always fortify you moat with a circle of salt and a good sturdy hedge.
