Almost halfway through my internship already. That's crazy.
IVF process is suddenly happening very fast. I put $15k on my credit card yesterday, including for sperm. My partner found the perfect donor. He could easily be my brother, with my dad's height. Big dorky Scottish social worker. It's very funny to talk about the first business day of my husband's period, and try to figure out which of us is technically being inseminated so we can fill out the paperwork. Looks like I'll be getting an embryo implanted by the end of July. Perfect timing - due right after the tax deadline. I might have already said a bunch of this stuff. It's tough to think about anything else right now. Unfucking the relationship with my own mother is on the back burner.
i bet i can criticize boeing more enthusiastically than you — BGLZxOJIriba A friend of mine was involved with the programming for the 787 and had PTSD from being pressed to move forward and meet release dates even though their whole team was screaming that it was still dangerous and they needed more time. She died by suicide about three years ago. :/ She was dealing with other mental health problems but the overwhelming guilt of being part of that project didn't help, and it looks like the 787 isn't even their worst. Ugh, Boeing.
KjZw Honestly, being in a conservative city is about the best place to learn to shoot a gun. Nobody training her will give a damn that she's queer. But they'll most definitely view her as being one of their own for learning how to handle a gun and embracing her right to do so (one of our own? I tend to critique Trump from the right because I voted for him, and he just hasn't very good about ending the wars or tightening the labor market) . Most people don't really give a damn about who any individual sleeps with, even the most hardcore right winger. It's really only when things hit the legal, media, or educational level of things that things start to bother them. It's more "we maintain the right to say what is normal in general, and what we view as moral and good" than "smear the queer."
