Trying to live a more simple life. It is hard to move away from decades of habits and indoctrination. All the while trying to keep myself mentally safe.

Just cleaning takes so much time. Whenever I open a window the whole place gets covered in dirt.

(CW: Suicide) One of my only close friends just killed himself. He had schizophrenia and during an episode he took his own life. This shit fucking sucks. I saw him for the first time in 6 months 2 days before it happened. I don’t know what to do really, his family is super distraught and I’d like to do what I can to support them. But they probably need time alone too and I don’t wanna impose. I don’t know if I can go home either. I guess I could use some advice or maybe something to read that’s helpful for grief.

Almost done with an 84 hour work week (two full-time jobs, not one super long job), looking forward to taking a nap and sleeping tonight before working overnight sat and sun and the week starting over again.

My kids are doing super well, finishing their school year (homeschooled), my landlord came over and had a heart-to-heart, which led to them backing off of wanting to sell their house out from under my family. My oldest two kids just got back from an LGBT summer camp, which I think was really supportive and beneficial and empowering for them. My partner is an amazing woman. Plus, it's finally getting warm, so my personal life is really good right now.

I am pretty upset by the way my 'comrades' here on raddle are handling conflict at the moment. We really need to step up our game when it comes to protecting our trans and other marginalized/vulnerable comrades, and have a much better practice of self-critique. Handling things like this is one of the most important parts of revolution/radical organizing/building radical spaces.

84 hour work week?!?!

Yep. 84. Welcome to the future envisioned by our neoliberal overlords.

So, even if you live in a "progressive" state with a democratic super-majority, your taxes are astronomical, the cost of living is massive, affordable housing is non-existent, so if you want to buy land for your anarchist dreams, you gotta do some stuff that's insane.

Yeah, I miss it sometimes but it made my bpd and psychosis soooo much worse. The euphoria was one of the best things I’ve experienced in my life but I made so many mistakes on it and coming down to realize how bad a fucked up was one of the worst feelings in the world. I also couldn’t put my boyfriends sobriety at risk.

I have been waiting all week to tell you lovely people about something I learned happened last Friday. The company I work for shut down its R&D office in China. A couple of higher-ups in our company flew to China to do the layoffs. At one point, the lawyers helping them do the layoffs told them they needed to leave the building now because this is when employees tend to take hostages. They had to have a swat team escort them out of the building. The people who had to be escorted out are still very butthurt over the whole thing. I fucking love it. I like that there is a place where bosses have to fear their workers, even if only a little bit.

I'm still having health problems that I am starting to believe are completely from sitting at work for so many hours. I have a little bit of schadenfreude about the way the bosses felt probably because I feel overworked and abused by the bosses, lol.

There seems to be some infighting around the proverbial watercooler. Most of what I'm reading it's simple shit that is only relevant when we aren't being inclusive. I'm not saying that tankies need a platform here, cause they don't. I am saying that we need to be less critical of each other and more critical of those that our at war with are base values. We are highly analytical by nature but that doesn't mean we aren't allies. Let's keep our shit together and give hell to the rest. We know where we all stand and why we are here. The rest aren't necessary though we can give them a home.-edit- unless harm to us is part of thier program or a refusal to follow our agreed upon tos applies. - edit -

this has more to do with ignoring particularly the voices of our trans femmes and whether this is not only a safe place for them but whether people actually stand on the same side as them and are willing to fight for and with them. as toast already mentioned in another thread by n_n which is about this and not some other shit, gladra and clouds (and others) have gone over this in great detail and on the former's one can still see many of their comments, which have been ignored. again. and again. and again. and again. and again. and... bandaids can't fix a wound that needs stitches or amputation.

Perhaps you should speak up in my post then so they know this as well because their silence continues to be deafening.

What's the point of promising when is not accompanied with action? I'll have something to say over the weekend.

I always fall asleep when I read, too. Can't tell if it is perpetual sleep deprivation or if it's a physical problem (like maybe needing glasses).

If I'd censored you I would have deleted your post. Learn about what censoring is. You've made an account and your post right in the middle of a swarm of new troll accounts. It's not hard to make a judgement call.
