(I particularly love Stålenhag's work because of its dark but playful exploration of a mid-collapse, post-technological world.)

It's day! (Because, why not?) Here are a couple of my favorite painters in this genre to start the day:

Fresh homemade bread is disturbingly don't-eat-the-whole-loaf good.

(I was already hungry for a snack, and I only ate half of a very small loaf.)

Hello! I am a for systems and interested in and (in an organizational sense).

I am sure many other things will come out as I go.

Time for I guess!

I'm Jules. I spend most of my day with kids - I have a toddler and a 2nd grader, plus I do some tutoring on the side.

My main hobbies and interests are knitting, music (especially oboe), reading, and museums.

I'll post about those things, and my family (including the cats), but I'll also be posting about political topics. No one else is going to save us, so we need to save each other. I’ll share what I’m doing to help.

Today, a first-grade student of mine waited in line behind several other students just to say, "Chris, my mom loves my dad so much she poops with the door open."

Yes, parents: your children's teachers know the most intimate and bizarre details of your personal lives.

When will push my current coffee habit to extinction?

5. A school exclusively for grown-ups whose children have better things to do than sit at a desk all day.

4. A school exclusively for children whose grown-ups don't care about college admissions until they're in their tweens or teens.

3. Progressive school with low or no tuition and strong family involvement. Project-based curriculum that actively pulls in community expertise.

2. Small school with mixed-age classrooms. Shoes optional. Kids help prep and clean up lunch.

Hypothetical elementary schools where I would love to teach:

1. A school in the woods outside of a smallish city. Outdoor campus. Place-based curriculum and frequent field trips.

Hi new masto-comrades! My name is Adriana, and I'm an non-binary, pan, anarchist (of some sort), and spoonie.

I'm currently studying environmental science, and I talk about all sorts of stuff behind the various appropriate CWs.

Say hi, have some tea, and let's burn down this empire together shall we? 🏴 💜 🏳️‍🌈

I feel like plastic grocery bags are a punishment for something.

I try so hard to avoid receiving them but I still accumulate so many.

Hi I'm a twenty-something student majoring in Data Science for some stupid reason.

❤️ I like 90s aesthetics and beige colored cases, wonky rasterizers, neat hacks and Quake.
☠️ I think the current big tech companies are a threat to our freedoms and so is predatory capitalism.
💾 I suppose there's more to life than books and computers but it doesn't often feel that way.
