Race is not a biological category that naturally produces health disparities because of genetic differences. Race is a political category that has staggering biological consequences because of the impact of social inequality on people’s health.

Here’s what sleep deprivation is doing to your body

Not getting enough sleep? Just one week of sleeping fewer than six hours per night can lead to serious health issues, including the modification of over 700 genes, reports the Huffington Post on a study published in PNAS last year. Other symptoms of chronic sleep deprivation include everything from bloodshot eyes to quadrupled stroke risk. This infographic fromHuffington Post’s Alissa Scheller explains.

can we print these off and hand them out to all our teachers


Maybe employers too, and the government that refuses to regulate out of control corporations like Walmart.I’m sure people would be able to sleep more once they’re worrying less about making ends meet.Capitalism kills.

I’m sure people would be able to sleep more once they’re worrying less about making ends meet.

Capitalism kills.

And one day!! One day!!! Someone will find that amazing children’s book I wrote for 8th grade English that my teacher said was her favorite in the whole class.

And someday someone is going to find that long lost manuscript of The Cat Saga, a multi chaptered epic about the feral cats who roamed around our property, and then HBO will option it for a fantasy cat series and people who knew me will be like, oh I bullied her in middle school but I just can’t get enough of game of cats.

People, is this any way to start a new year? Have compassion, Benny just lost his cat
My dog but I appreciate that
My cat had a fall and I went through hell
It’s like losing a…how did you know she fell?
Champagne?
Don’t mind if I do…to dogs!
No Benny, to you!

Let’s make a resolution
I’ll drink to that
Let’s always stay friends
Though we may have our disputes
This family tree’s got deep roots
Friendship is thicker than blood
That depends!

Depends on trust
Depends on true devotion
Depends on love
Depends on not denying emotion

I guess

It’s gonna be a happy new year

But like I’ll be a cult figure and people will google me and wonder about the gaps in my life

I have kept a journal of some form or another since I was about 12 or 13 and I bet when I die they’re all going to be discovered in an attic somewhere and published and everyone will read and identify with my riveting stories of teenage drama.

I now regret deleting my early livejournals, those years are light in paper journaling.

I got way back into paper journaling recently, btw. It looks like 30 something drama which is v similar to teenage drama. I still write about how nobody loves me. But that’s the whole point of a journal, I started writing bcause I didn’t have anyone to talk to.

Fuck yeah journals.

Horror movie idea: a succubus who picks up guys at bookstores by playing manic pixie dream girl. They go on a date and everything’s perfect. The entire movie is an indie rom com until they sleep together for the first time and she rips out his heart and eats it. The movie ends with her “accidentally bumping into” another guy at a bookstore. The cycle begins again

I’m so into this odea
