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

hell yeah no work tomorrow
jk I'm working from home and also am going to the doctor, it's like working at the office but worse??
I'm just gonna hang out at the library forever

my opinion is that movies should have less straight sex

It's looking like this summer will be uh staying in Baltimore City and just getting a Lot of doctor's appointments and maybe surgery n not traveling

Sucks. But I can explore the city a lot more!

i read a thing recently that blew my mind a little.
went something like:

people can imagine time travel to the past and one little act making massive differences in the timeline

but in their present they think even the greatest effort they can put in will not make any difference to the future

I just want to be annoyingly prolific.
I also really want to defend my PhD so I can send a sample chapter to LSU Press.

me this morning --- Looks like I won't do anything with that paper

me now: Dear Journal, I cannot pay the open access fees but would you please waive for them for me I'd like to submit xoxoxoxoxox

Part of me wants to withdraw it and send it elsewhere.
Other parts of me go

'that's not great don't do that'

Mmm my paper has been 'manuscript submitted' for 2 months now. It'd be nice if the status changed.

I have a dentist.
I have All my appointments lined up - primary care, dentist, neurologist, surgery consultation, Minute Clinic visit.
Now I just need surgery.

Today's been a success.

It's kind of amazing to see how the Rosa group is having some really nuanced critiques of the Russian revolution

Show thread

I assigned a debate over

Was the Russian Revolution successful for the proletariat?

Rosa Luxemburg v Vladimir Lenin
and this rules, the debate prep itself is amazing.

Show thread

my kids are debating with which each other over whether or not the soviets or bolsheviks are right

sick complaints 

Pretty sure I have strep, which makes sense.
I used to get strep a Lot as a kid, and have always been sensitive to it. Dang children.

I'm now reading the Other book I got signed by John Waters - Mr. Know It All
