sometimes i don’t know how people survive. financially speaking.
i almost only spend money on groceries and bills. the past few months that is all it has been. no books. no clothes. nothing that wasn’t necessary. i work full time as it is.
but i till feel like i’m drowning. speeding ticket, late fees, etc. drowning.
i can’t catch up.
how do you people survive?

there are several studies that have produce the same or similar results. obviously everyone body will react differently to different things depending on many specific biological and genetic factors, but this information is invaluable in terms of our studying mental disorders and trying to find ways to live with them.

helping sammie edit her final paper for her degree makes me miss her like crazy. i hope she is never able to perfect american-english verb tense so she always has to ask me for help, that way i will be indispensable as a friend.
i honestly love how children contextualize things sometimes. i was watching Pocahonatas with the kids for the umpteenth time when Tessa says, “that’s the bad guy!” pointing to one of the native american characters who was fighting with a white settler. i can see her confusion, she is only 3 and genuinely has no context for what was happening on the screen.
then Wyatt says, “no, Tessa. the bad guy is Radcliff with the big purple coat. and some of the other white guys.”
(to be clear, I have explained that the movie is not accurate to history and this is just a re-telling adjusted for children. though i glossed over the more violent and sexualized bits. he is just 8).
"you are right, Wyatt. Even though people were killed on both sides in the this fight, ultimately the settlers were the bad guys."
"yea. Because the natives were just defending themselves and Radcliff is like an evil Mr. Crabs because all he wants is money and gold and does bad things to get it."
"…yes. that is accurate."

but the space invaders might be more understanding. who knows.
