You know, I may just write her in! Legalize pot. Forgive student loans. Forgive American debt. Grow nuts for protein to solve world hunger. Outlaw Bullshit. Embrace Matriarchy.
Sounds better to me than anyone else I’ve heard. Here’s a small quote:
“Women, let’s stop propping up bullshit and reflecting it back at twice its size!! Let’s drop out big time and stop buying things! Let’s plant gardens. Let’s not buy in, let’s get real.
Let’s take back the real estate between our ears and get green like a son of a bitch!
Let’s start our own schools and teach our kids to heal the world and not destroy it. Let’s help each other first for once, before we help men or their gods! Let’s be selfish for our own sake and theirs, just this once. I know the thought of that seems blasphemous and horrific, but we have to do it!”
She’s irreverant and off the wall and pissy as usual – but some good ideas are better than no good ideas.
Really, I’m tired. I’ve stretched dollars till they scream. I’m selling our things. I am holding on. I still smile. I’m angry. I cry. I laugh at stupid stuff. I’m doing everything I know how to do without killing my pets, or my husband. When people tell me they are gonna do something, I need them to keep their word. I have momentary “rises in reaction” to people I love and they don’t mean I love you less. It just means I’m tired. If it weren’t for the fact we’ll be cold, I’d be calling the fall and winter to us so I can crawl inside my personal cave and hide for a while. I need it. The self nurturing time women need so badly as they cycle is practically non-existant when you are clawing to survive.
My son is selling his games on Ebay so he can have a new one to play. He’s an amazing teen. His front tooth has a huge cavity that he swears doesn’t hurt and I can’t get it fixed. I applied for peachcare but the system isn’t straightforward and I can’t figure out how to get it into place for us. I haven’t had generations of using the benefits to guide me through figuring out welfare. The offices don’t make it easy either. They are swamped and there are years of backlog because so many are in the line ahead of me. My dyslexia and problem with numbers isn’t helping either. I DON’T KNOW HOW TO DO IT!
I am tired.
