I love this series -- and especially this one featuring a fellow Green Bay Catholic school kid. Now I just mostly want to know where he went, even though there's about a million other questions I also want to ask him!
As a middle and high schooler, I really considered being a sister. I had amazing teachers as examples of passionate, devoted, feminist, progressive women. It seemed like a dream to me to live among all these women who cared so much about service and each other. There's got to be a better way for them to reach out to young women, but I think some of the decline is also due to the evangelical Christian ideas that are influencing young Catholic women about the woman's place in the home. I was always taught about the three vocations - married, single, religious - but the attitude in the Church seems to promote married life over the other two these days.
Nothing like the last one followed by the one just before it in the same day.
@Daisy Razor @hot doom @scandyhoovian seriously, it's such a wreck to watch. Why it was Daniel Pearl that gave me the big tears on my first watch, I do not know. It was a snowball, too, thinking about the featured people only made me think of a million more people I wish could still share their lives with the world.
This is as devastating as that ADL "Imagine a World Without Hate" video that imagines Anne winning the Nobel Prize for literature. That video made me weep for days.
On Chia Seeds
Help help, I'm obsessed with chia seeds and it's breaking my budget! Any tips on a good bulk price somewhere?
So sad I missed the DC PinUp. Next time, next time.
@meetapossum I was also baffled, but then I just decided being imprisoned by her own kid was making her mad delusional and maybe hangry.
@MilesofMountains that makes me so sad because Catelyn also believes she is the sole cause of the way/everything bad ever apparently
Is this week designed to make me happy? Science+Babies on Hairpin AND Radiolab?!
