About Me

I stand on the sand, and I'm rocking grief to sleep in my arms.

Journal Archives

Three years on,

my youngest son and his wife have COVID for the first time. (NC)

my oldest son and his entire family have had it probably more than once (in CA)

my middle son and I, who live together in NC, haven't had it yet. he works in a grocery and worked in that grocery all through the pandemic. He does continue to mask at work.

still, I don't get it. I'm essentially a recluse who wears a mask even going through a drive thru restaurant, but I live with a person who is in contact with the public all day and every day, and we have not contracted this virus.

anyhow. Their symptoms are mild, they are young, and that's all good. But it sucks anyhow, even now. My middle son and I may be among the last people I know who have not had COVID.

Regarding notifications.

I'm getting pop-ups from DU asking me to turn on notifications - I just dismiss it. I can't count how many notifications I get from how many apps already, it's too much.

But when it comes to DU, I would adore being able to follow certain people and would even embrace being notified when they had a new post up.

Will this ever happen? If it already has, how do I take part? lol

WP article regarding the College Board

i'm using the gift link so hopefully everyone can read it without running into the paywall.

The official curriculum for the course, released Wednesday by the College Board, downplays some components that had drawn criticism from DeSantis and other conservatives. Topics including Black Lives Matter, slavery reparations and queer life are not part of the exam. Instead, they are included only on a sample list states and school systems can choose from for student projects.
