    Hello happy hump day ! Wear your masks! As a healthcare worker and human who cares, I’m begging y’all to ignore the nonsense reports about masks. I don’t know if this virus was created, planned, natural, I don’t know if the vaccine is going to chip us and enslave humanity or just save millions of lives, I don’t know what the future holds. However, I do know that this thing is Real. People are dying of it all around me. Some say that they label deaths caused by other factors as COVID. That’s stupid. I have a close friend in my congregation who was a little older but healthy as a horse and one of the serving elders in the congregation. I mean it when I say this man was healthy, not frail. He tested positive for COVID and was out in the ICU on a ventilator. Just when things seemed to be going for the best, he was getting off oxygen and getting over it like a flu, his lungs and muscles began to deteriorate and he died. This IS REAL. This is not political, this is people’s actual lives. Please. WEAR YOUR MASK AROUND OTHERS. Thank you for coming to my Ted Talk.

    * and before anybody is concerned, this picture was taken away from anyone which is the only reason I took the mask off my mouth for the selfie- keep it on and keep your distance when around others! *

  • October has gone by so fast! I remember seeing a post saying that “Yesterday was October 1 today it’s October 13″ and it is surreal to look at the date and see October 21. Halloween is next week~

    I have been meaning to post more lately but I haven’t been able to unfortunately, I had a midterm earlier this week along with two presentations. I’ve also had work and I have three midterms next week right before Halloween. However, I did manage to have a Spring Advising Individual Appointment, and I think I may have my schedule for the upcoming semester!

    It is currently 10:36 AM and I am in my second zoom meeting of the day (Psychology) and I am pretty tired!

    It is crazy to see how fast time is going, especially with how long I originally had imagined October would be. Who would’ve thought?

    This time of year always flies by so fast, and yet it is the most festive part! I hope you are all celebrating on your own through the pandemic, and that each and every single one of you are healthy :)

    You can always message me! My inbox is a safe space!

  • Basically we are getting fucked again.

    An all-time high level of new infections with 5′500 new cases in 24 hours since last Tuesday, 11 deaths and 115 hospitalizations.

    We wear masks in every public space, in all public transporations, we regularly clean our hands with sanitizers, but yet many of us seem to keep putting themselves in dangerous situations.

    From one of the more successful European countries during the first stages of the pandemic to one of the least successful, my country is facing a real crisis.

    New more limiting measures will be enforced next Wednesday, and will mostly affect cultural manifestations.

    Like the stupid curfew in France, these new measures might very well endanger the whole cultural industry and artistic life in the nation.

    Two of my friends are currently self-isolating after testing positive, I did not see them for more than 15 days so I am clear but one thing is sure, I am not safe, not as safe as I thought I was.

    So if there is still someone in the wretched hellhole of a site that does not believe in the threat that the virus represents for both human lives and society as a whole, I can safely say you are a moron.

    Stay safe, soyez prudents, sicher bleiben, star al sicuro

  • This is how COVID LOCKDOWN looks like for most Indian women who have achieved feminist awakening but stuck in patriarchal family setting.

  • I was too little (7 years old) when i was sent to a boarding school. 
    To be honest, it was amazing to be living with so many kids of my age and above. my school had a beautiful campus and the best teachers. That became my home, where is discovered myself, my personality, what i wanted to become when i grow old and everything. I could say that more than my parents, my teachers have groomed me. After my 12th class, i passed out of school while surprisingly topping my batch in board exams. Being an average student throughout this was a shock to many and surprise to all, including my teachers! 
    well, this was a turning point in my life, i set new standards at home, for being the best child. My siblings and cousins were made to look upon me. 
    I never planned at that moment what i wanted to do when i grow up, after discussions at home, we apparently randomly planned on to aim for Civil Services (bureaucracy) and i was full of zeal to achieve this dream of me and my family. The luck had been in my favor and i got admissions in yet again one of the best colleges of Delhi University- Miranda House (a women’s college btw).
    this was the 2nd turning point in my life. Little girl according to my family and the first person stepping out of home city to study at a higher level, that too in Delhi around 900 kms far away! I was happy for this new phase in my life. 
    like i said the luck had been in my favor, i met people, i never realised would become so important to me. They became my best friends. within few months of being in Delhi, i met the love of my life. I never realised my potential to give love or let’s call it fall for love until i met him. I don’t know what i saw in him, i still don’t know, but this man became so important to me that Delhi became about him. I thought i was okay, until he kissed me, touched me, made love to me. before this, i only felt love, now i knew what it tasted like, how it smelled. I was subsumed with this emotion. Slowly this feeling just grew. He spoilt me with his kisses and made me want more. I dont know how i always ended up wanting things in this relationship be it time/love/attention. Well this is a different story.
    I grew so much as a person, i became so independent, i was happy and thriving. I had a feminist awakening, i could understand all the goods and the evils of society and had so much aspirations for a better world/future. I got wings and they gave birth to who i am today. The luckiest girl, i’d call myself. The best parents, sacrificing so much for my education, the best school, college, friends and love!
    But unfortunately i forgot where i belonged from. The 13 years of living outside made me forget my family background and the orthodox and patriarchal setting of our family. Yes no compromise in education, but still, a girl will not a tell man what is right. The father will never accept when he is wrong. The girl shall behave, dress proper, sit proper, say polite, adjust, and accept that she belongs to the lower status category, what they call “aurat jaat” in Hindi. Living outside blinded me with this reality and the world which i was living in became surreal to me, just like a fantasy world that every little girl not as lucky as me would dream of while being captive in their own houses. 
    This i realized when i came back to my home suddenly due to COVID lockdown and its been 8th months since then. So after complete 13 years, i’ve been home for the first time for this long. THE MAJOR TURNING POINT IN MY LIFE UPTILL NOW.
    All my myths shattered, all my wings chopped off, all my dreams for the better brighter world being shut down, here i am writing all this down because i don’t have a voice left to say anything. its my my body which is arrested, my family has arrested my mind and my soul to roam free. HEIGHTS OF PATRIARCHY is what i saw, something i only read in text books in my bachelors and newspapers. 
    My father heard me talking to my boyfriend some things he shouldn’t have and there came a literal storm in my house, with my father threatening me that he will get me married as soon as possible, won’t let me study further, because according to him apparently this is what i have been doing all these years in Delhi. He threatened me by saying he would die before i do anything like falling in love.  Only i knew, how much sacrifices i had made to achieve what i have today, how hard i have worked to study just to make them happy and proud of their daughter! How easy was it for them, to pass this off while saying these lines. Now im scared to call him, or any of my friends because i don’t want them assuming im doing something “wrong”.
    I have to go to Delhi to get my stuff that i left there in my apartment, and they won’t let me go alone. They want to send my mother along to keep an eye on me, so that i dont hangout with my boyfriend. 
    With this, i feel disgusted with myself and my parents. I feel the unluckiest to be born in this family. I never felt i would disrespect and hate them so much. 
    All these years i tried to be the best… and for what? i did everything as they liked, to make them happy… but for what?
    For being trapped in their fully furnished little princess castle that they claim to be complete with all demands that may arise for a person, trapped in beautiful clothes and they’ve brought me so i feel beautiful just to only look in the mirror. 
    I have the books that broaden my vision and the door remains shut. They think they are perfect parents, who have given my everything a girl needs, but unfortunately, they didn’t give me “freedom” which was apparently most necessary. My parents would call other parents (who let their children be free)- “rich and spoilt”, they would abuse men of my age and called them “selfish” to make us stay away from men. 
    THEY PASS IT OFF CALLING IT “CARE”, THEY DONT REALISE IT IS THEIR “INSECURITY”.
    THEY PASS IT OFF CALLING THIS MY “HOME”, FOR ME ITS A “CAGE”.

    Hygiene has never been more discussed than it has been in 2020. Good hygiene is one of the major keys to wellness, and teaching kids to practice it could help keep your household germ and virus free.

    According to World Health Organization (WHO), hygiene plays an extremely vital role in protecting us from infectious disease.

    Here are some tips to teaching your kids how to stay practice good hygiene and form healthy habits:

    1.     Hand Washing: Lead by example. Teach your kids to wash their hands after using the restroom, before eating, after returning from school, the park or grocery store, and anytime they have had contact with high-touch surfaces. When they cannot wash hands, advise them to use hand sanitizer.

    2.     Cover Your Cough. This simple sentence speaks for itself. Instruct kids to cover their coughs and cough or sneeze into their elbows.

    3.     Hands Off. Remind your kids not to touch their eyes, nose or mouth. Teaching them to do so will also remind them to keep their hands off their masks and inadvertently help prevent germ spread.

    4.     Bathing and showering. Teaching your kids about keeping their whole body clean will remind them of the importance of self-care and routine. Daily (or nightly) baths will both relax them and teach them proper hygiene!

    It’s never too early to learn healthy habits. You are your child’s first teacher - be a good one!

  • I just thought of the fact that some day the Riordanverse books will be considered classics and kids will read them in school and when they reach this part:

    image

    The teacher will be like:” Who can tell me why the author included this.

    And a kid will be like “ a global pandemic happened in this time.

    And then there’ll be one of those stupid discussions.
