Weekend coffee #67.
WTF happened to April? It’s already like half over. Now that I think about it, what happened to the first quarter of 2019? Feels like I have some catching up to do so I’m going to keep this quick.
The new season of Fleabag starts in May. Other than Our Planet, I’ve been struggling to find something to watch lately. Typically that means I default to re-watching Parks and Rec for the 300th time.
Suppose I could just spend time looking at all these random YouTube videos. Or maybe I should be a little more productive so I can stop complaining about everything I need to get done. ::shrug::
Holy heartbreaking. In 50 years, the percent of tenure-track or tenured professors has done a complete 180. That’s why Thea Hunter’s story is so important to tell. There are real, human consequences to changing the way the world works.
In lighter news, I stan New Jersey and all of its crazy inhabitants. Here’s a story about a sexy Easter bunny display and the woman who took it upon herself to take it down and protect the children.
The other Confederate flag. I have a fascination with memory and how countries (and cultures) choose to remember their histories. This is the first I’ve heard of this flag and one that seems particularly timely.
Speaking of, I just finished Say Nothing: A True Story of Murder and Memory in Northern Ireland and can’t recommend it enough. Incredibly well-researched and written, it’s an amazing narrative full of stories that have taken years to come out.
Until next week - thanks for following along.
