Seriously one of the worst things you can do to someone with social anxiety is to invite them to hang out without warning them that you’re planning to bring or invite more people. 

What you’re doing is offering them something safe only to trap them in a place surrounded by their biggest fear. 

I’m sorry for doing this sometimes without realizing it :(

Like, if I had been considerate I would have realized it would have been considerate to you to hang out alone. I just got excited by the thought of inviting even more friends to join us. I’m sorry.

Newsweek:

Last February, around 39,000 tons of toxic coal slurry gushed into a major North Carolina river. Now, having cleaned up around 3,000 tons worth, the company behind the spill and state regulators say their work is done.

With 92 percent of the original heavy metal-laden and possibly radioactive coal ash still coating 70 miles of river bottom, river advocates are frustrated.

A job well done!

Wild Plum Trees, Blackberry Bushes, Horse Chestnut, and Red Sumac Trees are fruiting everywhere in Berlin right now!
Summer is that special time of year for gathering wild fruits, just like Autumn is for gathering wild roots. Even while riding my bike, I stop often to take close observations of my natural surroundings and to have a closer look at what is growing in those surroundings. I mark on my berlin street map where the wild food sources are that I discover, so when it comes time for making my dinner, medicines, teas, marmalade, and wine, I know exactly where to begin to look, and so can you! <3
Understanding Foraging Etiquette:
   Observation is one aspect of a relationship between you and nature, respect, knowledge, and experience are a few others. Do your research first, go on plant walks with professionals in your area, and always be respectful and careful with wild plants and do not over-harvest anything, ever. 
Foraging is always going to be a journey into nature, whereas you have to go exploring in many areas to find your varied wild food sources. So just take your time, see where you end up on a blackberry hunt, have no destination. It is meant to be peaceful, quieting and relaxed, and it can be done any time of day, all seasons of the year, and thats the beauty in learning this craft. <3

Bottom line: if you wouldn’t call the LGBTQ* community the “f*g community” or the “dyke community” or the “tr***y community”, why you doing it with queer?

Examine your life.

I’m trying to understand. Slut is also a slur to a lot of people. So is the n word. But when people take ownership of it and use it for themselves, it loses that power…? Does it?

I have a friend in Richmond who prefers to be called queer. Anton (I forget which pronoun but it’s not they) feels like it’s the best description, and even formed a band, “queer rocket” with other people who feel the same way.

Gay and even homosexual have also been used as slurs. I think any word invented would as long as there are people who still hate.

I want to find out more about these words, this etiquette, and ask the pronouns. I’m really confused, and it’s late at night… But if anyone wants to talk, let me know? In not expecting it and I know the responsibility is mine to learn, not anyone’s to explain. Thanks for reading :)
