I need to reprioritize, and clear some things off my to do list.

I feel like the only person I'm not letting down is me, and that's important

I wish I could stop feeling like I was letting everyone else down, but ehhh.... maybe that'll happen later?

I've commissioned some rad art (and received it). I talk almost daily to someone I like and who has no expectations of me besides "wrangling the dog(s)". Although she'd maybe like it if I returned the plate she brought me cookies on.

I'm tired. I'm stressed.

I'm full time teaching faculty, and tutoring my butt off, and trying to bring some papers to publication because they were backburnered (editors 2 years ago: "yeah but who cares about viral invasion into the US?"), trying to publish my kickstarter

it's like 4 full time jobs and all I wanna do is sit on the front step and drink with my neighbor and watch my strawberry plants grow

time enough for everything, I guess.

vaccine discourse complain 

so I am definitely anti-antivax But certain people buy into way too much fake news

"stupid antivax people might bring back smallpox" except... we haven't vaccinated for smallpox in decades since we eradicated it? the only risk of smallpox is from bioterrorism?

"we have polio in the US because of antivax people" ... polio hasn't been part of our routine vaccine schedule for AGES because it sees endemic transmission in so few countries

omg this is the most adorable optical drive design i've ever seen in a laptop

Do you make music? Commission your next album cover with me! Do you know a musician whose music would go well with my art? Let them know! #art #illustration #mastoart
