Climate, action 

I like this article on tackling climate change, and also the internal stress/emotions inherent in it.

In this piece the author, Emma Marris, emphasizes systems and group action - but in general she does not discount individual action.

One part I especially like is that being part of a group means that you can contribute in whatever way suits your time, energy, skills, or emotions.

@lawremipsum This put me off saying anything the very first time I wanted to give an answer other than "she/her." And that was at an LGBT group's meeting! It was a year ago and it still hurts so much.

@lawremipsum I hate this so much, and the jokes are never, ever worth it

Don't be the person that uses pronoun introductions to "make a joke."

I guess UPS is just going to deadname me forever, even when packages are addressed to the correct name. I changed my name everywhere in their interface that I can, and still.

Anyway this is a reminder to take care of yourself by taking care of the space around you.

I got unexpectedly, massively sensitive to dust (or some other household allergen) this winter. Unfortunately I also made the dubious choice to store my electric blanket on the dusty floor all summer.

It took me months to realize what was going on—I've never had a dust sensitivity before & thought maybe it was a persistent cold.

I removed the cursed blanket, and improved overnight. I also got a HEPA filter vacuum, and washed a bunch of stuff.

The air is way cleaner and my body is happy again.
