meldog said: forever post about things you care about ESPECIALLY things like Ferguson and feminism and etc. i teach 9th, 10th, and 11th graders in Indiana and i'm so proud that they WANT to give speeches or do projects or have discussions about these things and it's BECAUSE we talk about them so much. things ARE changing because i'm seeing it in this next generation but we have to keep working at it. much love, as always.

Honestly, I am usually a cranky old man (I’m 30 physically, but emotionally i’m like 80. I’m a curmudgeon and I hate your music) but this new generation seems to have its fucking head on straight, and it really gives me hope.

i just had a sophomore that decided she wanted to give her declamation speech about misogyny in schools and how girls are shamed for showing their shoulders but boys AREN’T told/taught that they SHOULDN’T see girls as objects of sex for their pleasure only. she owned it and killed it and one of the boys even told her, “you made me see girls in a different way.” and it’s like YES YES YES. she wants to take her speech to the school board and of course i’m over there like hell yeah, we’re doing this.

anyways, i’m proud of them and times are changing, albeit slowly.

Smoked tempeh “BLT” sandwich with tomato and cucumber salad. Tempeh is a soy product and I seasoned it to give a bacon-like taste.

I don’t know why I always cook so  late but it probably has something to do with how I came home and slept for a few hours and then was hungry.
