home purchasing stress 

WHY DON'T THEY TELL YOU THE AMOUNT YOU'LL NEED UNTIL RIGHT BEFOREHAND? This wouldn't be an issue if I didn't have to wire or cashier's check it because that adds complexity and like -- the money is there but if you need me to do extra hoops, I need extra time ahhhhh

Queer Connections by Faith Holland looks at the anthropomorphized interaction of technology with itself in the forms of photography and sculpture. The project plays with the β€˜male/female’ nomenclature of wire ends by creating daisy chains of wires that are not meant to be connected. The connections are solidified by nail polish, making each connection both messy and feminized.

IU collective action 

The IU graduate workers fee strike is still going on. A thousand of us are still refusing to pay our mandatory fees.
These fees were about 1200 per year with international students paying an additional 600. The fee amounts have dropped somewhat for graduate workers in the college of arts and science but they're still too high for someone making 15,500 per year to pay.

Good news, the terrible TERF bill in Florida has died in their Senate!

Remember the tens of thousands of people nationwide who marched willingly into a brutal phalanx of cops night after night, to get sprayed with so much chemical munition that it collected in their bodies and on the streets, washing into the sewers.

@hafnia I feel this too. maybe because it’s one of SO many. It’s not a win-win so much as not another loss. Because Floyd is still dead. It’s been so bad that the verdict of a horrific, filmed murder like that was even in question. That Chauvin thought he could do that.

it's still riveting though

suspense and surprise the whole time

pop pop pop pop pop
and then it all ends in a treat

our lovely neighbor, Miss Carol, just left us her newspaper with a note noting that she's canceled the subscription so we probably won't be getting more. Since we were about to tell her on Friday that we'll be moving in a month, it's actually pretty good timing, but now I guess I need to write her a note! (she's 80+ and we're not fully vaxxed yet so we can't just like... hang out)
