A Manifesto of Sorts

I hate New Year's Resolutions because I think any changes you want to make in your life should happen as soon as you think of them. So here's a sort-of list.

1. Survive.
2. Help as many other people survive as I can.

Also, because I've seen this a lot: It's okay if you can't do things! I spent like all of December in a fugue state reading and writing fic because I could deal with any of it. That's okay! I called my various reps about the ACA last week.

Almost every day, I remind myself that it's okay to set your own boundaries about activism. Forgiving yourself for stopping makes it easier to go back to doing the thing. We figure out what we can do. We do what we can. Just because some of us can do more doesn't mean that what little we can do is meaningless.

Also, shout outs to all of you guys. Thanks for being here with me. Love you all. <3
