I'm happy Crazy Rich Asians is doing so well at the box office but like it...I didn't...it wasn't my jam, personally
there were a lotta Male Writing Rom-Com tells in it, most notably the EXTREMELY PERFECT DUDE who was also completely trash and lied to her for their whole relationship but never had to deal with that fact at all and that bugged me :-/
I get that the tension and comedy of rom-coms is often premised on a lie, and I never care much for that aspect personally, b/c in real life a lie is a shoddy foundation to base a relationship on, but ok it's movies, relax, yeah yeah...

Blasphemy. The semicolon is the sexiest form of punctuation; it is the sweet inbetween.
Also a very sexy punctuation mark — it's true. Someone should make a calendar.
I do caution some sparseness with the semicolon whereas I use the em dash is like garlic: spread liberally throughout

As folks begin to mobilize around this, and there needs to be mobilization around this, please study and connect to the prison abolitionist work @prisonculture and others have been doing. This is both a carceral state issue and an immigration one.
Organizing, like any creative endeavor, is a journey of finding your voice. It is intensely personal. It is a marathon not a sprint. It requires both being quiet and being loud. It is what this moment asks of us. Find your voice, and then lift it.
which is to say, there isn't ONE THING organizing is or isn't. It's what you do and the intentionality you bring to how you do it. It's your analysis but also how you walk with that analysis, how you carry it. What it means to you. How you place yourself and move.

"How many students chose slavery as the reason the South seceded?
Eight percent."
Our schools continue to fail to teach any semblance of what really happened in American history, often because of white teachers' discomfort.

☝Speaking of how badly America tells its own story to itself...👇

when you finally finish that book
at the @BNUnionSquareNY event with @LBardugo someone asked how you know when a book is done. It's a great question. WHEN YOU TYPE THE END jk
1. don't be a perfectionist
2. write the best book you can
3. It takes a village
4. trust your gut
