Yay? You don’t seem enthused?
mixed feelings. likely to come back because my lease here runs out at the end of the month; haven’t actually finished my last term of school (trying to finish has been a…
Oh yeah, the parents thing would be super weird. Even visiting for long periods is weird and you’ve been away for so long. But, job prospects are awesome! That’s great. (I’m sorry about school though, it sucks to be so close and have stuff go wrong, hopefully it’ll work out for you, I’ll cross my fingers)
Yeah, I’m in CO for at least another year. Though I will be in Austin over Thanksgiving. We should hang out if you happen to be there then. It’s been too long since I’ve seen your actual face (outaide, of course, your selfies which are super awesome btw, Idk if I ever said or not…..)
Def gonna be weird. Especially since mom’s retired and dad, for the first time in like 15 years, is unemployed. So all three of us will be around the house—-though thankfully that house is absurdly large for only three people. Haha I should probably rephrase “prospects” as possible leads/people i know but yeah, might send leaders out to this firm downtown that wanted to hire me a few summers ago. Thanks!
Oh nice! Masters still? It has been sooo long, other than that random time I saw you at the airport! Haha thanksss.
Haha, you’ll probably never see except at meals. Idk how large ‘absurdly large’ is but all I can picture now is one of those ridiculously large tables (like thirty feet long) with you three trying to have like normal dinner-time conversation but at a shout and having to chunk the salt and pepper back and forth as needed….. Break a leg on the job hunt (break a compass? idk what’s acceptable ‘good luck’ to architecture folks…..).
Yeah, still masters, though I am applying into the phd at the end of this coming semester. so, fingers crossed. :)
ok ok ok…let’s not get ahead of our self here, this isn’t some English country manor. and the dining room is actually relatively small (don’t ask me why, the orig. owners were insane) (also wait have you never been to my house??) haha thanks! it’ll be interesting since likely it’ll just be for a temporary job.
aw dang someone going to be a ~doctor~
I went to your house for a birthday party in middle school (?) Tristan was there so I assume middle school. You introduced my to civilization (the game not you know, humanity) But, that house wasn’t very big so I assume your parents have moved?
Also, a job of any kind is awesome so long as it doesn’t crush your soul. find something fun/that you enjoy?
Haha, I dream of the day when I can raise my hand when someone asks panicked, “Is there a doctor is the house!?” and then tell them “Oh, no. I could help if this was, you know, a dead language that needed translating or an etymology that needs fixing. That guy bleeding from his eyes needs to call 911….”Source: queerkegaard

"Ancient moon priestesses were called virgins. ‘Virgin’ meant not married, not belonging to a man - a woman who was ‘one-in-herself’. The very word derives from a Latin root meaning strength, force, skill; and was later applied to men: virle. Ishtar, Diana, Astarte, Isis were all all called virgin, which did not refer to sexual chastity, but sexual independence. And all great culture heroes of the past, mythic or historic, were said to be born of virgin mothers: Marduk, Gilgamesh, Buddha, Osiris, Dionysus, Genghis Khan, Jesus - they were all affirmed as sons of the Great Mother, of the Original One, their worldly power deriving from her. When the Hebrews used the word, and in the original Aramaic, it meant ‘maiden’ or ‘young woman’, with no connotations to sexual chastity. But later Christian translators could not conceive of the ‘Virgin Mary’ as a woman of independent sexuality, needless to say; they distorted the meaning into sexually pure, chaste, never touched."

""but that book character has blue/grey/light eyes so obviously they’re white!!"" ://///
(Reminder that light eyes and blonde hair can be caused by conditions, such as Waardenburg Syndrome and albinism, but they are still real people that can (and should) be represented in media and such)
And also I can add that I have news for y’all, people can be black and naturally blonde
And literally people from ANY KIND can be a redheadand have freackles and such
So please, stop pretending only white people can have those characteristics, jfc, it’s sofucking annoying.
Boom de yada
Just to add on - While race is a very, very, very significant issue, race as we know it is a social construct. When you acknowledge that all people on earth have veeeery little genetic variation in the scope of things, it’s much easier to break oneself from the training of “only white people have this, only black people have that, only asian people have this trait, etc”

"the average captain can save 2 people in 12 minutes" factoid actualy a statiscal error. average captain can save 0 people in 12 minutes. georg kirk, who was captain of a starship for 12 minutes and save 800 people including urself and ur mother, was an outlier and should not be counted.
