In the morning the women walked around half naked until they took their showers,...– off the map
Just gave a very simplified lecture on systems of oppression to a 9 yr old. Gotta love the stuff privileged families teach their kids.

Money, money, money. Ugh!
Feminist women are more likely than other females...

In roughly an hour and fifteen minutes I start at the Monroe&Oxford store. I know it sounds lame, but I am kinda nervous. I often get super worried before I go do something or go to somewhere new. I think it’s just that I am always afraid of messing up. Which is irrational. I mean, really. It makes no sense. My last day in Penfield was weird. I didn’t really tell anyone I was...
mental note: pepsi + oatmeal = terrible breakfast combo. uggghh.

“Senate won’t vote on healthcare reform before recess.” - New York Times uhm… DUH. Are we really that surprised?
…realizing that I judge my friends’ relationships far too critically. It’s only because I love them.
South Africa Lags in Battle Against HIV →
ICheck out the article, linked above. It’s still a wonder to many that countries lacking resources, like Botswana, have really made strides in prevention and treatment of HIV, but massive South Africa still falters. Actually, it is only a wonder from first glance - it’s far more complicated than an American’s quick glance over the subject. I think it would take too much...
Tonight/tomorrow morning's to do list:
Organize internship materials. WMS Club event brainstorming. Write letters (grandma, Scott, Charlie). QUESADILLAS. Sleep. Lately I feel my physical adulthood hard. Late nights with little sleep take their toll. I have a feeling I won’t get anything done tonight, but there is always the morning. I think I need to get a calendar. I think I need to learn how to organize. Mental note: student...
I think a lot these days about autobiography and personal narrative. How our stories are always changing, and how we make sense out of and must reconcile and balance our past experiences with our present identities. I think about it this weekend (with the closing of Rochester Pride festivities) and wonder how this storytelling that we share with ourselves and those we meet is linked to the...
Here’s to feeling like you are sixteen! Funny how people just show up in your life, eh?
I can’t help but feel everything all at once. I’m pretty sure that if I didn’t feel so intensely I wouldn’t know how to live.

After all the hubub, Espada may be back to the Democrats. Was it worth it buddy?
So many good things...
..so I am going to brag about them on the internet. 1. Sick Fix, Coke Bust, Black SS, and No Connection playing in Syracuse on Friday. 2. Making cookies and then riding in a car with Ana Emily, Sarah, and Sean to said show. 3. Lemuria on Saturday at Bug Jar. 4. Washington, D.C. for the Youth Policy and Organizing Summit next Weds through Fri. 5. Dan Munier AND Ben Kreuggar are going to D.C., TOO!...
samanthabales: It’s really simple. Start making a conscious effort to see women as people. That’s it. Don’t see them as “women.” Don’t start off your thought process about an individual woman by thinking of her as a member of Class Woman. Women aren’t “crazy.” They don’t all want one set of things. You can’t try to “understand [all] women.” You shouldn’t generalize them. You can’t draw...
You can always know you’ve met a good person if it happened because of books. I swear by this!
