ok, whats more consistent, reliable and user friendly?

Mendeley or using Word's reference tool?

I used Mendeley last year, and really liked how that worked out but towards the end it glitched and i had a hard time connecting it to word...

(This was also probably due to writing on two different devices 😬 )

“You can tell the story of the world in as many ways as you wish, from the perspective of modernity, and never pay any attention to the perspective from coloniality. I am here referring to something important and much more than a mere “conflict” of interpretations. To illustrate, consider that a Christian and a Marxist analysis of a given event, say the “discovery of America,” would offer us different interpretations; but both would be from the perspective of modernity.“ -Mignolo

I often talk about de-centering Latin America as a concept and cultural unifier in my work as a Caribbean person, but since I’m in that sliver of ‘hispano’ it’s only right that it does make an appearance in my research.

If only to provide another layer of white supremacy and settler colonial context as it relates to Spanish colonialism. It’s necessary, basically. My diasporic caribbean neighbors have to place themselves in certain ways too. Just a passing thought as i get ready to read

Fanon sums up my feelings abt ​posts regarding ‘abolishing borders’

“To dislocate the colonial world does not mean that once the borders have been eliminated there will be a right of way between the two sectors. To destroy the colonial world means nothing less than demolishing the colonist’s sector, burying it deep within the earth or banishing it from the territory.”

BC after the border is gone, there is still settler colonialism. SO 🤷🏾​

Running into Americanists is the worst cause they are always like 'What's the point of your subfield?' And with Trump all study populism but have no knowledge of the theory or history of populism and it's totally fine

Dont let western new age spiritualist/healers that still have not deconstructed their hyper individualistic views of healing convince you that healing must occur completely alone or else something is wrong with you. Its just not true. Healing also occurs in relationships and community and its really important to not disregard that. We’re literally social creatures!!! Healthy relationships with secure attachment are important and incredibly meaningful healing from trauma

i think im going to ***** and read, then a doc, then SC as a night cap :BlobCatMelt:
