The Past Week

This past week for me consisted mainly of:

… dealing with the dystopia of kids being separated from their parents at the border. Feeling utterly powerless, I did give a little money through ActBlue. Otherwise I just read too much about it, for example:

From the Huffington Post: Former Border Patrol Agent To Current Agents: Refuse Orders To Separate Children

… thinking about how to fix my lawn moss problem. Sometimes in times of political crisis we have to obsess about things that don’t matter.

… collecting my masses of English bac papers to grade. Here’s what French teenagers on Twitter thought about it.

… putting my trusty old 98 Toyota on the internet for sale.

… watching La Casa de Papel.

… listening to OrelSan’s latest album in my new car (including the 3+ hours of driving I did to get my bac papers). It gets more interesting with every listen.

… turning 34 and going out for dinner in a jumpsuit.

VERY informative: How Internet Ads Follow You Around. Turns out Facebook messenger is probably not listening in on my conversations.

  1. I hate watching/reading the news. It makes me sick. I honestly don’t understand how anyone can think this is a good idea. You have to be soulless.

    Facebook is the worst when it comes to tracking you. In my settings, I opted out on ads based on my activity as soon as that option became available years ago. LOL. Yeah, like they respect that one bit. For examply, the moment I started looking at baby things – baby ads all over my FB!

    And happy belated birthday!

  2. That jumpsuit is really cute!

    The news that has been coming out of the US in the past weeks has been really disheartening. I don’t understand how people can justify ripping children away from their parents.
