on a sneaky nap
#i love sleep
while hayley was in her ballet class for an hour and a half i decided to go where i’ve not gone in ages- nap time. i mean hey, if i’ve got the kind of job where i can, why not? i’m no masochist. i love sleep. when i used to nanny babies i often napped when they napped, but alas, older kids offer no such relief. with non-babies you’re go go go all day. however, a chilly, drizzly afternoon gave me no reason not to try and snag a little shut-eye in the backseat of my car. with a sweater sleeve draped over my eyes and the grey world sliding down the windows, i napped. i napped and it was great. the end.
"Congress will have been in session for eight days total during the 102-day stretch from Aug. 1 to Nov. 12, after the midterm elections. As the Hill explains, given lawmakers’ $174,000 annual salaries, their pay works out to $608 per hour over that span."
#this is fucking crazy
Why Americans are so racist?
Because in North America we live in a culture that has been built on racism. Between the genocide and systematic erasure of First Nations peoples to the slavery and segregation, we’ve pretty much structured the way our society exists and functions around racism, and as a white person I directly benefit from that whether I’m actively racist or not, and white people being unwillingly to acknowledge that perpetuate the problem.
It’s a complex issue that I don’t feel fully able to address, because I don’t experience racism myself.
