Open Thread: We Could All Use Some Positivity

I originally wasn’t going to post anything today because I’ve been so stressed from the multiple things in my life crumbling before me: fixing things that have gone wrong, writing essays, an all-nighter, filming scenes, writing poetry and editing photography so I can enter them into a creative arts journal on campus before 11:59 PM tonight, dealing with the fact that I’m bad at Physics and wondering why I took a Physics course, possibly dealing with bronchitis…or at least a very annoying cough, seeing videos like TWO GENDERS? by Jaclyn Glenn (CW: transphobia) pop up on the Internet, the Presidential election, and, of course, dealing with people that need to be told what to do…over…and over…and over…and over again.

Then I thought, “maybe I’ll say something positive” because that corny piece of advice sometimes works…sometimes.

Then I thought, “maybe I’ll let people share their positive moments because we could all use some positivity” because, like that friend who wants to help but doesn’t know how, I have good intent…and don’t know what else to do.

I’ll start with this. I finally got this book in the mail and am excited to read it.

The ABC's of LGBT+ by Ashley Mardell

I’ll probably write a review of the book when I’m done reading it.

And for those of you thinking, “This post doesn’t have any useful information at all. This is just random stuff.”
