People in Ferguson Still Need Help!

This website contains a wealth of useful information on ways to help the people in Ferguson, how you can organize and participate locally, and helps to spread the word and keep the message strong. 

b-binaohan:

We, the undersigned, do not support your lawsuit against Lisa Rabey and nina de jesus. As librarians and educators, we value open dialogue and believe the proper response to accusations of harassment is understanding and engagement. Instead, you have chosen to use legal action to silence future discussions about a critical issue in our profession and furthermore will likely prevent other victims of harassment from speaking out against their abusers.

about to grab some lunch, but let me just say this to those who aren’t in the know:

just because you live in a certain country for years doesn’t automatically make you an expert in its culture or how to properly depict its people. my time in JET and studying abroad I was with expats who insulated themselves from Japanese culture at every turn, and they were not in the minority.

so I don’t know much about the author of Gilded other than she claims to have done her research and had it checked, and while I’m glad she seems to have taken more care than other writers, the fact that Korean readers aren’t thrilled with the book says a lot.

in the meantime, we should support books by people from that culture instead of handing cookies to white authors for doing the bare minimum.

bolding mine

These three smokey wcs grew up, but are still up for grabs here

cause I’m migrainey enough not to want to deal with the coli.

I hoped I wouldn’t have to do this for a while yet, but financial aid money doesn’t last long when you’re poor and desperately in debt. :/

So yeah, I’m still disabled (and thus unemployed), and still need a way to pay rent / bills / debt / etc.; also, I will be out of meds in a couple of weeks. The good news is, I can get my meds for cheap(ish); the bad news is, no income still equals no money. Could you please help me out and/or signal-boost if you can? Thanks much. <3

so pain clinic appt happened

probably by the time anything comes of it, will be leaving the UK. Sigh. Will see how timing works out, really hope I can get some good out of not-for-profit-health-care while I can.

Need to look up & figure out why they are saying I have CFS as well as fibro. Really not clear to me.
