If folks come into my mentions to debate me on political science or neoliberalism or any of my research - I will mute you.

Outside of my students, committee members, reviewers, editors, and randos at conferences - I don't have the energy for it.

Parasocial relationships are a lot.
Recently people have started expecting a lot from me, a lot more than I can give.
I love sharing. I love bonding with people. I love teaching. But I am a person with an illness that makes me seize if I get too stressed. And I'm getting stressed.
I can't handle the intrusions into my personal life or heightened expectations. I entertain a lot of that On Here because I'm worried about doxxing. I want to connect, but I also want boundaries.
So here's a bit 1/

The Street Medic Wiki 

medic.wikia.org/wiki/Main_Page

This is a wiki that street medics made and cultivated with helpful information.
It has advice on what to do during sabotage actions, arrestable actions, hunger strikes, and others.

I do Not recommend practicing things you see on here that you don't know how to do (C-spine stabilization for example). I Do recommend going through articles and seeing what you feel good with and sharing that info with your crew.

clever.
And now I have less than half a year to finish this, and at the end I'll be a political theorist - a political scientist.

I just want to be a political scientist.

Thoughts about Whole Dissertation Journey 

phenomenology got thrown out, and now I'm here.
For each of these theories I wrote almost 50 pages of defense and exploration. I was quizzed over every inch of the theories and where I wanted to go for hours every week by different committee members. It sucked.
Every week finding out the gaps in my knowledge, being thrown books, to return and often be turned away. Again and again. Until I found something really unique and interesting and importantly

Thoughts about Whole Dissertation Journey 

I started off working on my proposal 3 years ago, while studying for my comps. I originally was going to study the historical development of neoliberalism through a Gramscian lens and determine what hegemonic stage it was currently at - language was in there somewhere.
That ended up being thrown out because it's boring.
Then I was going to do a phenomenological examination of the shift in self due to neoliberalism, looking at language.
