I feel like it says a lot about me as a person that I go "Okay, I will read lots of prose books by new authors" and promptly start on three massive manga re-read projects. And also that I swap between Important Seminal Manga That Is Critically Beloved and the Sparkly Shipbait Idfic. START AS YOU MEAN TO GO ON, I GUESS.

I have also spotted the slight flaw in my #getouttamydamnhouse goal, which that I hadn't accounted for what I was going to do when I... Happened to the library? Having a target that keeps going up incrementally is a good way to discourage yourself, so I am keeping my goal fixed at ninety (oh god past!me what were you doing) and when I get to June I'm gonna count up how many library books I have left in my house and adjust my goal accordingly.

Everything is A LOT at the moment, right? Trump. Brexit. Aleppo. And this whole Marie le Pen thing is starting to look far too plausible. It can feel like everything is out of our control. Our actions get drowned out by newsreels of permanent despair, and every new dawn brings a chorus of 'Those fuckers did what now?' It's easy to believe what the fascists want us to believe - nothing we do makes a difference and we may as well give up.

To counter this narrative, in my own small way, I thought it might be useful to start signal-boosting things that got DONE over the course of a month. My goal - to produce a five-item list, each month, of ways people improved the world and made a difference in the middle of this political wasteland. Regular people are pushing back, and resistance is anything but futile.Read more... )

What's with your subtitle?


It's a riff off an extremely obscure meme only Tom Hardy and Myspace fans will appreciate.
