What's on your mind, TueNighters?
I live in Florida and I fear for my NB child who is going to college in-state due to finances in August. How did my state get this way? Why are people content with fascism, racism, and authoritarianism? I sincerely hope Ron DeSantis crashes and burns like his Twitter announcement did last night. He is even worse than trump
It’s been three years since the death of George Floyd.
Is anyone else just exhausted? Personally, professionally, politically...all of it. I just wish I could turn something off so I wouldn't have to deal with it.
I work for the Chicago Cubs during the baseball season, this year I'm only working the day games, so I'm working tomorrow, Sunday and Monday.....Monday is of course Memorial day, so that means time and a half pay. YAY. It's a fun, laid back job. I work in the parking lots, either scanning cars into the lot or showing fans where to park. This is my 7th season. (I started the year after the WS win)
Been watching and listening to 70s "Soul Train" clips on YouTube lately. They make me happy! This one is "I Love Music" by the O'Jays. Enjoy!
Hi! New here and semi-new to Substack (March). Happy to have found this space. The world is an absolute sh!tshow right now. I can only hope it's the death rattle of the batsh!ts out there. I had been in a pretty bad effing mood since 2016. It was the end of last year when I finally had a talk with myself about dealing with things better. I've been on a happy quest ever since (with none of that toxic positivity BS). My theory is: we all need to get happy. That might sound Pollyanna glib, but happy people don't hate. They don't want to oppress. They don't want to harm. And, if we are happy, we can probably better organize and get some of this sh!t sorted. Gay Pride is next month. It's going to be scary. Are you a Target shopper? Stop. Tell them why. (https://www.npr.org/2023/05/24/1177963864/target-pride-month-lgbtq-products-threats#) Be vocal. The sane among us are not being vocal enough. It's always been a minority of asshats calling the shots. So, if we get a little happy, get some rest and re-energize, we can get back to the frontlines and get things back on track. We just can't keep going like this, feeling awful and defeated. At least that's my theory. (BTW, happy people still flip off dumb drivers and other sorts of bumblef*cks.) Nice to meet you all! xo
I'm new here - hello everyone!
I'm a New York-based illustrator and I'm wondering how to meet art directors and creative directors socially, as sending out emails to them doesn't work.
Any advice gratefully accepted! Thank you.
Hi, I'm new here! I'm a recently divorced, queer mom to a non-binary teen. I'm also a midlife coach, licensed therapist, art therapist, and a first-time author of a new book called Midlife Emergence. It's both a revealing memoir of my own messy passage into midlife in my 40s AND a guidebook with prompts (journaling, art, ritual) for the reader to help you through your own midlife transition. Tonight, what's on my mind is that my kid just finished 10th grade today, and we're moving into summertime. I've had a really heavy past couple of years, and I want this summer to feel more light, playful, and fun... I'm craving that so much! AND I have a lot of work to do because I'm developing some exciting new programs for women in midlife and promoting my book on podcasts and such. Trying to find the balance in it all. I'm happy to be here with you. Thanks for the space.
