Oh nooooo I can't do any work becauze these sleepy pups demand to be snuggled

I had an existential crisis and wrote an article about it. After a long and arduous gestation, it's out in the world.


Things I'm looking forward to reading today include @Sam_winn 's"Dying Well in the Anthropocene: On the End of Archivists"

...she may be the ONLY person from whom I'd read/accept that second clause.

Not sure how wise it is to listen to Lemonade before going into a meeting I'm *already* grumpy about.... 🤷

'lo frens. I'm trying to get into Masto more regularly b/c other comms are not feeding me RN. Here's what I'm up to these days:

1. Reading adrienne marie brown's Emergent Strategy

2. Watching Roma so I can listen to the Latinos Who Lunch critique and practice my Spanish

3. Revising an article on archives in the anthropocene

I feel too exposed on birbsite these days to really share personal stuff, esp as I approach tenure time (next August is the Big Submit).

So apropos of nothing, I'm going to send some thoughts into this here void throughout the week.
