In a chaotic world, how will you show up for yourself and provide yourself with the consistency you need in the new year and beyond?
I hope that however you decide to spend today you can grant yourself some grace and kindness — and that you pop in to hang out with us for a little bit!
Let’s be here together, apart — the safest way to show community care this year.
Let 2020 be the year we figure out what we actually need, and let’s scheme and dream about how we’re gonna achieve it.
You will have a better time hanging out in this Autostraddle open thread than you will hanging out on Twitter today, I promise. It’s science!
Can I just say – how is it the end of November…again?
Tomorrow is a brand new year! Here are the words we’re thinking about when we think about 2019. Tell us the words you’re claiming in the new year! Tell us what you’re doing for New Year’s Eve! Tell us all your hopes and dreams! Tell us everything! We love you! Happy New Year!
I will bring the peppermint bark!
Vete a la mierda Cristóbal Colón! It’s Thanksgiving weekend, and whether or not you “celebrate,” I wanna talk to you about traditions and reclaiming shitty things! Get in here!
We’re over New Year’s resolutions – here’s what we’re looking forward to in 2018. What about you?
Can we just put on holiday themed pajamas, sit by the fire place, and open gifts together? The gift can be a conversation or a hug or a puppy, I’m not picky.
Whether you need company today, solidarity when it comes to family, or just someone to share memes with, we’ve got you covered. Get in here!
I want to know everything about your holigay celebrations and your day-to-day life and I want to know it now and I ideally want you to wrap it up in tissue paper inside of a baby pink plastic bag and then put that bag inside of a box inside of a box inside of a box inside of a box, with each box intricately wrapped in paper, so that I can spend as much time immersed in the everlasting gift of your love as possible.
HAPPY HOLIGAYS TO ALL, AND TO ALL SOME REPLIES!
I hope somebody brought mashed potatoes! Welcome to your Thanksgiving / Not-Thanksgiving-If-You-Don’t-Live-in-the-US Feelings Atrium!
You might not be dealing with large family gatherings today but I will, so get in here and give me something to do other than refresh Twitter all day.
This is a safe and special place for you to use as refuge from your family, a recipe depository from your holigay feasts, and also a friend-making machine.
In short, the holidays are a weird emotional soup. So I figured we’ll play a game to distract us from our feelings. What’s the gif that best represents your current holidaze?
After you eat your turkey and drink your eggnog, come on in and cuddle up.
Welcome to the Friday Open Thread, where we process our weekly feelings together in the comments until they come out as rainbow apple cider. This Friday is a special Friday, of course, BECAUSE IT IS HALLOWEEN OH GOD SO EXCITING HALLOWEEN HALLOWEEN HALLOWEEN.
Here’s how we’re gonna be brave and bold in the new year. What about you?
