Navajo nation officially stands against the Redskins

In a 9-2 vote in favor of the legislation last Thursday, the Navajo Native Council passed legislation officially opposing the continued use of Washington’s football team name, the “Washington Redskins.” 

UN human rights expert on indigenous people’s rights James Anaya concurred with the vote, saying that the name is a “hurtful reminder” of the indigenous people’s history and genocide by America’s colonizers: “[T]he term for many is inextricably linked to a history of suffering and dispossession.”

Things I learned today:
- I can totally get a weeks worth of homework done in a solid 24 hours
- also, I needn’t let things get me down, most things happen for the best, and with determination, everything will work out just fine.
Beach jobs, busy schedules, and other bullshit :)

Introverts, in contrast, may have strong social skills and enjoy parties and business meetings, but after a while wish they were home in their pajamas. They prefer to devote their social energies to close friends, colleagues, and family. They listen more than they talk, think before they speak, and often feel as if they express themselves better in writing than in conversation. They tend to dislike conflict. Many have a horror of small talk, but enjoy deep discussions.

Don’t come at me with small talk, if you’re coming to talk to me you know we are about to go deep. Ha

A man once asked me … how I managed in my books to write such natural conversation between men when they were by themselves. Was I, by any chance, a member of a large, mixed family with a lot of male friends? I replied that, on the contrary, I was an only child and had practically never seen or spoken to any men of my own age till I was about twenty-five. “Well,” said the man, “I shouldn’t have expected a woman (meaning me) to have been able to make it so convincing.” I replied that I had coped with this difficult problem by making my men talk, as far as possible, like ordinary human beings. This aspect of the matter seemed to surprise the other speaker; he said no more, but took it away to chew it over. One of these days it may quite likely occur to him that women, as well as men, when left to themselves, talk very much like human beings also.

Bought some new lingerie and a birthday card that says “I love fucking you, I mean, I fucking love you.” I’m the best girlfriend ever.
