Happy Sunday sunbeams! How was your week? My week improved exponentially and it’s because I committed to a morning and nighttime mindfulness practice??? Sounds fake as fuck, but let me tell you: I asked myself “was today bad, or just unproductive?” and it completely fucked my whole view of myself up (in the best way possible). I’m realizing that I’ve been deciding that good days are directly related to my productivity — a complete and utter lie that crapitalism tries to sell us! Do not buy it!
Instead of measuring the good/bad of your days based off your productivity, might I suggest hooking up to some free wi-fi at the public library, plugging in some headphones, and jamming out to Dolly Parton’s very own communist manifesto that’ll make you say, “Karl Marx whomst?!” And then when you’re fired up, read up on some of the best good gay news of the week.
+ Okay, is crime good? No, I guess? But lesbian crime and divorce drama from space is honestly thrilling.
+ August 24th is Marsha P. Johnson’s birthday, and this petition needs your help to make it a national holiday!! It’s what she deserves!
+ Finding identity without gender: a queer photographer’s journey.
+ *Internet popup voice*: Which queer TV superhero are you? Take this quiz to find out!
+ Syd and Adidas are teaming up thanks to Pharrell?
Bye friends, see you next week. Remember that your goodness is not based on your productivity, remember that you are loved, remember that you deserve happiness and peace and good friends and good food and to be able to do what you love. Even if that’s not your right now (it’s not always mine, I get it), don’t ever think you don’t deserve it.
*Natasha Bedingfield voice*: I love you I love you I love youuuu
