Estoy un poquito obsesionada con el standup de @hannah_gadsby . Ya lo vi dos veces y creo que todos deberían verlo también. Empiezas riéndote un chorro y terminas mindblown y con el puño en alto 🙌🏼 Definitivamente te amplía la perspectiva en torno a la #diversidad#mustwatch 💪🏼💪🏼. #iidentifyastired 🤣
Puppy spam!!! Training is going well. Kenzie is a freaking beast! She loves carrots, and destruction. We ordered her some cool ass toys. I wanna do a puppy review to see witch ones she like best. I’m exhausted she gets me up early as fuck. #kenzie#puppypower#adoptdontshop#ftm#iidentifyastired
I mean... yeah. Except for the energy part. #iidentifyastired#repost @chaninicholas ・・・ . S A G I T T A R I U S A P P E C I A T I O N P O S T . Who shows up more ready and willing to have a good time no matter the day, time, or situation? Who creates their own luck, abundance, and the most unlikely blessings simply because of their willingness to try? Also, how did you all get THERE? How do you always have energy and enthusiasm to spare? How do you always find something to focus on that’s amazing, no matter how much you know about what isn’t? We love you!!
Watched the end of @hannah_gadsby ‘s “Nanette” in class today, talked about how Sherman Alexie is problematic, discussed Alexie’s “Dear John Wayne,” talked about toxic masculinity and homophobia and whiteness, and called John Wayne a fuckboi in class. Plus I brought my students candy so I PRETTY MUCH CRUSHED TEACHING TODAY 💅 Even the candy I brought to class agrees. #notenoughlesbiancontent#iidentifyastired#smashthepatriarchy#adjunctlife#queeracademic
This is somewhat me lately, except I’m doing it anyway 🤪 anyone else feeling particularly challenged by the universe/full moon in this moment? Well challenge accepted! 💪🏼 . . I’m making some changes this week to try to help myself out, cutting out coffee for a bit (I was drinking SO much ‘for me’ in the last few weeks... ) and even though I’m busy beyond understanding (currently headed to an embassy before it opens so i might make it before i get an early FLIGHT 😳🤢🤦🏼♀️😂 I’m going to gift myself some moments for meditation and exercise 🙏🏼 . . What are YOU going to do for yourself?
I'm tired. Seriously. I'm fucking tired. Consent does not have a "gray area". Let me quickly answer all your questions about consent: . × NO MEANS NO. × Don't hit on people in the work place or in academic settings. × Don't touch people in a sexual manner if they have not permitted you to do so. × Don't slap butts, thighs, tits or other body parts unless instructed to. × There's a standard legal age for a reason. Also kids are off limits. × If a person cannot express consent due to inebriation/drugs, then you don't have consent. × If you are unsure whether someone is enjoying themselves during an act, ASK them. × If you are not sure whether someone is unwilling to go further, but don't want to ruin the moment in case there is a moment, ask "hey, is this OK for you?" . This "navigating the gray area of consent in a post #metoo world" bullshit is just being apologetic to abusers. How is there a gray area? You either have consent or don't have consent. There is no in between if you respect the person you are engaging with because you're supposed to care about their well-being too, not just your ego feeling powerful or your dick getting wet. . How many times must this society find excuses for abusers at the expense of victims?
I got busted eating a piece of chocolate cake the boys didn’t know was in the house. So I did what any mom who is tired and just wants to eat her cake in bed does. I told them it was disgusting but I had to eat it by myself or I’d get in trouble. They believed it or decided I was too crazy to bother with and let me be. Now, back to the cake. . . . #thatmomlife#iidentifyastired#chocolatecake#noyoucanthaveany#gotobedsoicangotobed
I have a thing for signs. This one was spotted on a fun morning out with one of my favorite people. I included another one from a recent trip to AZ (because apparently, I have a bathroom sign theme going on 🤔🤣). Mari on a swing made the cut too, (because she is adorable)! Thanks @atomoy ❤️
Right now America is divided between the have watched and have nots! We already knew Trump was a donkey now the rest of America is joining. Watch this show right now! This woman will not disappoint and believe me you’ll come out asking everyone you know to watch as well! @hannah_gadsby #iidentifyastired too
Who knew I’d still be alive at 28 ? Certainly not me 😂 Another year achieved without you. And despite all the rest. #iidentifyastired Nothing related to this cat keeping me company but she’s la plus belle so why wouldn’t anyone post a pic of her.
I IMMENSELY enjoyed Nanette on Netflix. I live with PTSD and the resulting 🔥ANGER🔥 most days; I don’t go out to open mics and comedy clubs as much as I used to because I don’t want to spread bad vibes (inciting anger, self deprecation) when I’m on stage. Thanks to your shifting of stand-up paradigms, I have a new stand up comedian role model. 😘Thank you for sharing your stories @hannah_gadsby 🙏🏾 I will continue on my quest to share my stories too. 🔥♥️🔥#salve #inspiration#resilience#iidentifyastired
Listen up. To some of us, too many of us, living is a constant struggle. If we have managed to achieve some sort of fragile balance in our lives, it has been achieved through a lot of work. And it is still that: fragile. It doesn’t even have to be a big blow, and it will still break us into even tinier pieces than before. But then we do all the work again, one by one we gather all those tiny pieces of ourselves, our hearts, souls and bodies, and build again something that at least resembles a balance. This is called resilience. And it’s a powerful thing. Of course I hope it didn’t have to be this way, but so it is anyway, nobody asks if this is what we wanted. Of course it’s not. And it’s exhausting. For me it’s got to do with an ED, with depression, with a strong C-PTSD. Even if I still lived in Chile, I’d still have this. In Finland being racialized, being time after time put in the place of “other”, being discriminated for my ethnicity, my body, my weight, my gender, it makes it even harder. And still I’ve got it so much better than many. I’m able bodied. I’m white/Finnish passing. I’m cis gendered. My sexuality is not being questioned. I’ve always been poor, but still always have had a roof over my head and food on my plate. And because of all of this is why I will never EVER stop fighting and trying to build a better society not only for me and people like me, but for everyone. And I know I am not alone in this. That being said: sometimes the blows and crisis are big, almost too big, and I need to cry. I need to calm down and feel lonely, rejected, unwanted, and still find the energy not to let this define who I am now and what my future will be like. But it is okay to feel this. It is okay to be tired and sad and angry. I’ve made it this far. I’ll go even further. #intersectionalfeminism#ptsd#edsurvivor#ptsdsurvivor#cptsd#chilena#niperdonniolvido#365feministlife#365feministselfie#iidentifyastired
"Punchlines need trauma. Because punchlines need tension and tension feeds trauma." And then she grabs the comic universe: "I need to tell my story properly because I paid dearly for a lesson that nobody wanted to learn. I need to tell my story because you learn from the part of the story you focus on."
