Unlearning the Christian teaching that suffering is virtuous. We should exalt joy, in ourselves and others. The world is abundant. There's no reason to promote deprivation or misery.

The heatwave is starting in earnest. The city has not prepared cooling shelters beyond an extra hour at the library and I guess you can ride the bus for free if you don't have $2 ugh. And now the mayor and police are conducting sweeps under the bridges. WHERE ARE THEY SUPPOSED TO GO, NADINE!? WHAT THE FUCK DO YOU THINK YOU'RE DOING?

Talking to unemployment people is so frustrating. At least with that, I'm done with my job search requirements for the week.

capitalism 

who is more violent, the person who burns down an empty building, or the system that puts spikes under bridges to keep people from sleeping under them.

Eczema. Now I have to use a steroid cream and prepare for my tattoos to probably get ruined.

It means drop everything and check out hotlaborsummer.com

When I send you this: 🏴‍☠️
It means intellectual property is a capitalist fiction, knowledge should be freely circulated, and cultural workers should be paid and supported through a different mechanism than 'ownership' of nonrivalrous immaterial goods

Health and reminders 

Tomorrow: wake up early to go to urgent care, schedule test to get into the trades apprenticeship program, don't forget to buy oat milk. Maybe go to the tradeswomen meeting?

Tonight: try not to scratch and rip all my skin off, work on writing project.
