Alright friends

I am going to do a zoom Health and Safety Training tomorrow at 6pm CST.

These provide essentials on how to stay safe in the streets. Questions are Always good. If you want to be a part of it just DM me.
Keep in mind this will be open to the public so don't say anything incriminating.

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.

I love that journaling started with Puritans being like 'I need to record my failings'
which makes my current journal a historical reenactment

Nonbinary is not the same as gender nonconforming, and the way nonbinary identities are presented (particularly in academia) and discussed limits and erases nonbinary people who do not present in ways that people "expect."

our landlord thought we never tried to turn the AC on 'cool' which is why it's hot

I am buying takeout now strictly because its in the 90s in my apartment and uh...I don't want it to go into the 100s

I'm very excited that there's another academic instance because this means more book club potential

it's so hot in here that cold showers turn to steam rooms as soon as they're done

time to call out the landlord

Foucault, quoting Saint Vincent: "O my Saviour, you were pleased to be a scandal to the Jews, and a madness to the Gentiles; you were pleased to seem out of your senses"

Slim Shady: "and be proud to be out of your mind, and out of control, and one more time..."

I am quickly realizing that all of my friends are the same people and process emotional needs in the same way

Get pumped from we have presentations from things as diverse as patent law, poetry, the future of ice on Earth, and a slew of other amazing exciting presentations.

"Hell is not other people. That's too general. Hell is having to read the Dean's latest email of solidarity." -- Fred Moten in a Zoom talk with Stefano Harney put on by UC Irvine grad students. These folks get how exploitative the University can be!
