Welcome to my thought stream.
It's mainly whiny music, medium understood philosophy, mental health coping, attempts at support, and coping with being a socialist in a MBA program.
I'm a union worker at a store going through contract negotiations.
C-PTSD, MDD, lots of trauma that comes out of nowhere.
Gluten Free for health.
"Human by birth. Hoosier by choice. Southern by the grace of God." Make of that what you will.
I was referred here by We Hunted The Mammoth, as a replacement for the other thing. Not this specific instance. I kinda picked at random 😅 and it sounded like the best fit.
Early 30s, femme, head stuff, yarn fun, food, dog longing, work complaints, writer, left Pol, true crime, TV workouts, and so much Star Trek
Apparently, I have a blog.
Occasional ESL teacher, and US Civics.
Currently thinking about Grad School.
Dad's ex is currently getting in touch with everyone about this and calling out the landlord.
It's a nation of under 100k people, each region has the population of a large corn town. You can't steal from a dead man and not expect there to be a stupid amount of drama.
You can't die and expect there not to be a stupid amount of drama.
Dad's landlord is trying to say shit which is Dad's is his and there's no record that it's Dad's and this is a fucking mess.
Probate is moving slow as all hell and the bastard is going to steal a few things.
I don't even want them nor can I get them shipped, but it's the ethics of the fucking situation.
Goals after aging
Hit daily step goal of 5k for three months. Increase goal every three months to 12.5k daily.
Complete 2 to 4 classes next semester. Have plan to finish MBA in December or May.
Continue Duolingo streak.
Be kind to yourself and others.
Come up with a plan for what to do after you finish degree.
Sometimes, liberal discussions on guns go odd places.
Like, "if gun owners are required to have insurance, the NRA will make more money by offering the insurance."
But, they already offer liability insurance. It's a model that exists and is there. Primarily for hunting and competition accidents, but it could be expanded.
And, maybe, not offered by a lobbying group.
Self care +
I went over a week without washing my hair.
It feels so clean now, with minimal color loss.
My crown feels basically clean. I think I need to get a different shower head to help with this, since I flip my hair to rinse it. I might not be getting the product off the crown.
I'd needed to switch shampoos over the crown greasy feel.
re: negative thoughts: what can we do?
What is community care that's also self-care?
I guess seeing each other when we're hurting.
supporting our friends so they can pay rent (if we can afford to ourselves).
Share stories of hope.
Be resilient, offer a helping hand.
But also recognize that the strongest among you may be suffering in silence too.
Remember to reach out to those too.
Mundane life vent
I shared my tattoo on Facebook.
None of my husband's family has responded at all.
All of my mom's family has, with positive affirmations.
They tend to be similar types of American conservative, but my family is more comfortable with visible tattoos 🤷♀️
Wasn't expecting that one.
(Dad's family all private messaged me to say it was a beautiful tribute.)
when a company advertises a "machine learning" or AI approach, we should ask them
- what is the model you're using? no, I won't accept that it's proprietary info.
- what is your training set? is the data complete? no, quantity is not good enough. where are the blind spots and how have you consulted with experts in the field to correct them?
- have you received peer review? If not, there's the door. come back when you have.
