I'm a little bit addicted to the dizzying swirl of excitement, nervousness, fear, wonder, and hope that engulfs me when I start a brand new manuscript :)

OMG, so weird because I swear Hulu kept checking in with me when I was watching Futureman last month, and that's only a 21-minute show!

IDK what it is about Daredevil, though. I mean, I'm watching it all so I like it well enough. But I can literally queue up an episode at 1pm and end up falling asleep and waking up several hours later x_x

That used to happen for me, but it doesn't anymore! Perhaps after I clicked on "Yes assholes. I am going to watch all this Stranger Things at once" a few times they sorted me into the "Binger" category ;)

LOL that Netflix thinks I watch 8 hours a day of Daredevil, just because I always manage to fall asleep during the one episode I put on each night and wake up 7 episodes later 🙄

I liked this tweet because it's good to be reminded that huge unaccountable companies use our personal data to dunk on us both literally and figuratively.

Agree. I am also so angry about the new plans to replace free human visitations with 20-minute video chats that cost $12.99. How does that not unfairly discriminate against the poor and elderly who might lack access to computers or be unable to pay the fee? :/

Agree. I know the isolation is for protection, but there has got to be a better way. Sadly, most people don't care about the well-being of prisoners :/

I can't even imagine the hell that is prison, let alone that hell after being sexually assaulted and then isolated from everyone else. This organization is new to me, but what a worthy endeavor. They even handwrite the cards :) 💙💙💙

For some people, hope is the one thing they can't live without. Send a holiday card to a prison rape survivor. Takes one minute. Might change a life.

At first I thought those were single serving mojito mixes or something.

Right? "By any means necessary" makes it sound like she's advocating cheating, lying, stealing, sabotage, etc.

P.S. No one should have to work 60 hours a week. No one should have to choose between their home and their healthcare. No one should have to take on massive debt just to go to college and better themselves. Not anywhere, but especially not in "the richest country in the world."
