Can't keep preaching to the choir, the choir's depressed. Get out of your bubbles; reach out to the other side no matter how fucking difficult and stressful. Open your mind, challenge your own ideas. Can't afford not to.

🎧 How is it that every song I've heard so far on the new Tyler album IGOR is a banger? 🎧

Also wanted to add that I love the piano solo in this performance. Pianist is Sullivan Fortner and he's severely underplayed on Spotify.

A small win: a new friend of mine ran for SF school board. Homegirl Gabriela López WON! Knowing this woman--her beautiful heart, passion for her job and students, experience as a public school teacher, who did much "campaign cardio" to knock on doors and meet voters--many of which are not US citizens but able to vote for school board--this woman who vouches for cultural competence in the classroom and increased wages for teachers--inspires me!

That feeling of utter relief when you have insurance again... COBRA is like hundreds of dollars a month and that's not remotely affordable for ppl trying to cover between jobs

When I was broke and applying for medicaid I got caught with a hospital bill on top of penalties for the coverage gap that occurred cause medicaid wouldn't fucking respond for months.

Until every single human being who resides here is covered, we gotta fight like hell.

Nobody should be without healthcare. Ever.

How can I, a public university employee at the bottom of the totem pole, start working today to try and end the University's dependence (read: wholly ensnared state) on proprietary, corporate owned/backed software?

Anybody know of any orgs that work on this, or have any experience fighting this kind of thing?

It makes for a very depressing state of affairs, being so reliant on these capitalist structures.
