Why is it always the weekend when I get sick?
Right now it’s just a scratchy throat and no energy so I’m hoping that if I sleep a lot a eat a bunch of good things it will go away.
In other news: it’s been raining here non-stop since it stopped snowing and I’m so over it. I need a day in the sun to recharge. I know I could go tanning but that costs money and I am cheap. I wish we would get at least one dry sunny day before the Spring rains hit us. I’m okay with a super wet Spring because it almost always means we will get a super lush Summer. I love a lush summer. It’s just been so dreary here for weeks and weeks, so I’ve been feeling pretty down. Even on my up days I’m still pretty down. I’ve managed to maintain a pretty good outlook and have been enjoying the little things.. it would just be nice to catch a break weather-wise. Then I feel like I could really bounce back into my old self and get my energy up. It’s not enough to go running, and do yoga, and meditate. I need sunshine! Perhaps I should make an offering to the sun god or something..

Cis people who think cis as a term is oppressive to them are so laughable like that’s like someone calling your arm an arm and you’re like “is this some tumblr social justice bullshit”
Actually no. If I don’t identify with a term and someone repeatedly refers to me as it, it begins to feel oppressive, even if the term in question is the most “socially accepted” of all the terms. I am me, and you don’t get to put me in a box because you feel more comfortable with categorical language. Just because someone out there thought of the term “cis” for persons who identify with the gender they were physically born into does not mean everyone likes the term, or wants to be referred to it as such.
Any word can be used oppressively if the person or people it is directed at does not like it.
