There is a container with leftovers in the fridge.

Really interested in this one. I feel like a lot of discourse around hormones in the media is quite pseudo-scientific and gender essentialist, so I'm interested in some different perspectives here. Glad to see that trans experiences are very much included.

Extremely 2000s things I just remembered I used to do: Listen to Bloc Party's cover of Say it Right on my iPod Classic

Going to a concert soon and I'm not sure if i know how to anymore 😳 it's been so looong
