I can’t help but feel like I’m being ignored… I can’t help but feel like people are making plans without me, and no one even cares to mention them. I can’t stand the way some people can be so passive aggressive. Am I the one who is passive aggressive? It just makes me really sad to feel like the whole experience ended with so many mixed emotions left unresolved.
News: Interview on thursday! It’s good news once I actually get the job… you’d think I would’ve learned something from past job interviews. We’ll see how this one goes I guess.

It is difficult for me to put into words, but simply put, University students started a class boycott movement demanding democracy and universal suffrage from the Hong Kong and Chinese…

Building an Ark for the Anthropocene
by Jim Robbins
We are barreling into the Anthropocene, the sixth mass extinction in the history of the planet. A recent study published in the journal Science concluded that the world’s species are disappearing as much as 1,000 times faster than the rate at which species naturally go extinct. It’s a one-two punch — on top of the ecosystems we’ve broken, extreme weather from a changing climate causes even more damage. By 2100, researchers say, one-third to one-half of all Earth’s species could be wiped out.
As a result, efforts to protect species are ramping up as governments, scientists and nonprofit organizations try to build a modern version of Noah’s Ark. The new ark certainly won’t come in the form of a large boat, or even always a place set aside. Instead it is a patchwork quilt of approaches, including assisted migration, seed banks and new preserves and travel corridors based on where species are likely to migrate as seas rise or food sources die out…

School’s not so bad when you spend the day playing with bees, birdwatching, finding beautiful buterflies and harvesting vegetables from the organic garden.

Here are some basics on herd immunity, and here is some more technical research if you’re interested in the details! 

If you’ve ever heard my rants about vaccination, you know it’s a major topic with me. Because hey, I’m one of these immunosuppressed people this comic talks about, so it’s a bit of a sensitive subject. (“Oh, I’m sorry, you don’t like getting vaccinated? I don’t like having three month long respiratory infections because you gave me the freaking flu, but I guess you don’t care about that”)

Essentially, Ellen and her wonderful character Katherine have just said it better than I ever could—and using Shaun of the Dead references, too!!! It’s all about herd immunity—getting vaccinated isn’t just about your own health, it’s about the health—and non-zombification—of the entire human race.

Awesome explanation.

Also vaccines are only like 90% effective, so people who get them aren’t all actually immune.

Also immunosuppressed due to steroids, also seriously pissed off at anyone who doesn’t vaccinate without a damn good medical reason.  And “I’m scared of autism” doesn’t fucking count as a medical reason because I’m autistic too and even the worst of autism is better than what happens when people don’t vaccinate.
