Stacy Abrams somehow finds time to write romance novels.
I love politics, and I love art, so the politics of art is my happy place.
The few people still working remotely (33% of all workers) are going back by September. Some people actually think that the public will tolerate teachers working remotely, while they’re busting their asses in an office. They’re in La-La Land. The latest jobs report show how badly women have been screwed over. Schools aren’t going to open because people give a shit about kids — they don’t — they’re going to open because the business community demands it.
The New York Times asked epidemiologists a list of 19 activities (eating indoors, taking public transportation) and asked them what they were willing to do now that they have the vaccine. I scored a 13 out of 19.
Working: I have a ridiculous amount of paperwork and research related to finding a path for a smart kid with no social skills, but I’m trying to keep that work until after 3:00 every day. My book side gig has not gotten enough attention, so I spent yesterday listing books. Steve added more bookshelves to the basement and strung up some motion detector lights in the basement/book storage center. I’m almost done with Chapter 1 of the book. It needs a few more pages and a thorough edit.
Reading: I loved Jojo Moyes’ The Girl You Left Behind, so now I’m reading Me Before You. I was up until 1 or 2 am reading it last night. Such great descriptions about the lack of supports for people with disabilities, which is really inspiring my writing.
Picture: Office buildings in Jersey City as seen from the very bottom of Manhattan. At some point, I’ll do a slide show of the entire trip.
