Rest assured I have been posting about pants on the internet for 25 years now and have never been compensated by a pants manufacturer for my essays nor photos
The person I had lightly followed on Instagram for their daily OOTD looks (lightly = bookmarked, I have no account there) finally tipped over to full on ad mode with a Hello Fresh ad ("#ad"), so... yeah. To me it's just extraordinarily sad that whole world of influencers (guh) exists.
this MLK day, consider actually giving Letter from a Birmingham Jail a read. It's not long, and MLK criminally gets mostly digested through trite soundbites and quotrs. His thoughts deserve to be read and understood in full.
The GOP is funneling trillions of dollars in useless and unprovoked wars but harass disabled people who just want to stay alive. You need to vote them out. They’re literally evil. https://m.huffpost.com/us/entry/us_5e14b935c5b6c7b859d17b97
It's almost like the whole "allow legal sports betting in Colorado and we'll have tons of money for water projects" thing was fabricated to get people to vote for it. What a coincidence, I am so surprised

One thing I'm tired of: this "the GOP and Dems are equal! TWO PARTIES BOTH SIDES" nonsense. The truth is different. It's not 50/50. It's not even close.
"In aggregate, 40% of all voters in party registration states are Democrats, 29% are Republicans, and 28% are independents. Nationally, the Democratic advantage in the party registration states approaches 12 million."
Salvation Army PSA
Here's my wintertime reminder to not donate to the fucking Salvation Army. They're a religious organization first and foremost, and they have been *very* anti-lgbt for their entire existence.
There are loads of other, real charities to donate to. Off the top of my head, Doctors Without Borders and Food Not Bombs are good ones.
Pretty typical current interior for comparison. I did love that you could be in the middle of nowhere and each store would still feel like an antique shop on Chicago's north side. Now, it looks like they're going for 2015 Arby's.
Humble yet excellent; famous among dozens. IA + design + diversity + inclusion. They/them or he/him.
