My lions are about to drag away the adult woman in group chat who just excitedly informed me that fruit comes from flowers! They start off on trees as flowers and then become fruit!
I don't know what to say other than "That's such a cool thing to discover today!" But soon she'll be in the tall grass.
Communities and predators
It's painful to be reminded that people who abuse or harass aren't all monsters, but sometimes our loyal friends and respected colleagues. They do good, too, and the desire to extricate that good is strong.
When we give in to the cognitive dissonance, though, we push the victims out of the spaces the predators exist in. We're left with hollowed out communities, robbed of so much heart.
I've decided to read @Gogogadgetpants's handle as "Gogo Gad, get pants."
Gogo Gad is always going around pantsless. Come on, Gogo.
As of June 25, my partner is getting laid off from her job as a writing center director at CSU Global, a management position that sees her managing ~30 people plus updating website content & organizing data into understandable chunks. She's a professional writer, editor, English teacher, writing consultant, and instructional designer. Most of her experience is in higher ed, but her skills are infinitely portable.
If anyone knows of or comes across any positions or jobs that would be a good fit for her, please let me know! Also, her website is at https://kelsiemcwilliams.com if you want to share it.
<p>Basically, an old lady.</p>
