Sunday Funday Is Making Cocktails in Our Robes With Divas

Hello! It’s Sunday morning and I haven’t had my coffee yet and I have that feeling in my chest/stomach that feels very similar to when I’m about to cry? Bodies are very strange. Last night I woke up just to kick my laptop off the bed and then immediately fell back asleep. Earlier this week I had an IT band injury from, wait for it… underuse. My body is definitely trying to tell me something, just what, I am unsure. However I will keep listening to her (yeah, my body is a her even though I’m not, it’s fine). I will be gentle with her and myself and the world and my friends and my emotions and I will start that process by sharing some good news with you!

Keep on trucking babes. Take note of the flowers growing, and the clouds, and the phases of the moon, and your neighbors. Pay attention to your community. We need each other, and we will make it through this by actively supporting one another. Stay home unless you have to go out. Wear a mask. Wash it as soon as you get in. Fall back in love with bleach. I love you, we got this.

Before you go! 99.9% of our readers don't support Autostraddle. Still, it takes funding to keep this indie queer publication running every day. And the majority of our funding comes from readers like you. That's less than 1% of our readers who keep Autostraddle around for EVERYBODY. Will you join them?
