On Self-Care, in Theory and Practice

Sara, I must recommend two things to you:

1. Melatonin. I am also very afraid of sleeping pills but took melatonin for the first time two nights ago and it was magic. 3 mg was all it took. Took it with a glass of sleepy time tea, in bed with the radio on, and it was great. V peaceful. I've been an insomniac since I was a kid and the nighttime ritual is VERY important.

2. GTD - Getting Things Done. It's a very corporate america type thing in its jargon and the discourse surrounding it, but it's helped me find a lot of peace. Now when I get those imposter syndrome fueled moments of self doubt I can look back at my "completed" tasks in GTD (I used doit.im, omnifocus is good app for macs) and see that NO! I am productive! I did good work today! It also helps because you realize you don't NEED to put every moment of your life to a certain class of tasks (read: work) and that putting aside an hour to yourself every day for routine (cooking/cleaning/self care) and another hour for self improvement (reading a good book/learning a new task) does not make a huge dent in the main focus (work) at all.

As a neurotic and an insomniac I URGE you to look into those things. They have been very helpful for me! Especially GTD!

On Dress Your Family In Your Lover's Shoes

@Plexia In the US welfare benefits are asset based, meaning it is not your income that determines your entitlement, but all of your possessions in total. Some people have even been forced to sell their cars to qualify for it. In every state in the US having a trust, or any savings at all that you declare, would disqualify you from welfare.

On Overheard at a Women-Only Charity Event

“You guys are all so beautiful. Like, there’s not enough time to hug you all and grab all your butts.”

I have said this exact thing I want to go to this ladies only charity event and touch some butts in the spirit of friendship.

On A Brief Transcription of Pantie Chatter

I started working out with the explicit goal of getting a bigger ass. So yeah, those squats are working and the panties I bought to celebrate look a lot like those. BIG HIPS BIG ASS CAN'T LOSE.

On The Heartland Pie

There's a stretch of highway through Rockford where you can only pick up the Christian Rock and I am ashamed to say I thought it was an alt-rock station for YEARS.
