My sinus infection has decided to come out through my eyes
It’s really gross
I’ve recently decided to be a mirror to people, in that, the way they treat me is how I treat them. It’s kind of hilarious watching them react, the mild shock and confusion that washes over them “wow Nicole’s not going to be selfless and put my needs ahead of her feelings anymore” NOPE.
The “ive been to Guatemala to build homes for poor people” fit
With the door slammed shut on a national public inquiry, Canada’s premiers and aboriginal leaders are calling on the federal government to compromise and have key ministers meet with them to discuss the issue of missing and murdered aboriginal women.
P.E.I. Premier Robert Ghiz said preliminary discussions have begun for a national roundtable with federal ministers following a meeting of the premiers and aboriginal leaders in Charlottetown Wednesday.
Ghiz said the premiers reiterated their call for the federal government to launch a national public inquiry but short of that said they were open to compromise.
"We are also extremely supportive of the idea that if there is a national roundtable with federal ministers — that could be a good idea…," Ghiz said.
"We believe dialogue and compromise are good first steps. If we know we’re not going to get somewhere there’s no point us putting our head in the sand and saying we’re done with it."
Ghiz said there has been some discussions around Justice Minister Peter MacKay and Aboriginal Affairs Minister Bernard Valcourt taking part in the roundtable but that nothing was confirmed yet.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s comments after the killing of 15-year-old Tina Fontaine touched off a firestorm and renewed calls for a national public inquiry.
Harper said the issue of 1,200 missing and murdered aboriginal women is “a crime” — not a “sociological phenomenon.”
What I miss about working with kids are the special little moments you have with them, like them telling you about their favorite animal, or them picking wild flowers and making you bracelets and necklaces, or them getting really excited when you give them a special job to do, or how refreshingly and innocently honest they are with you, or when you BRING OUT THE ICE CREAM, I especially appreciated these moments when it was a 12 year old kid because I know they’re on the cusp of adolescence and when will they ever have moments like this again? I know that many adults in child care and education overlook these moments, hell even parents do but I just remember the looks on their faces when they knew I was really listening to them and that look alone is worth a billion dollars
Those little gremlins how I miss them…

#which is why the term white privilege REALLY angers people#it’s the first time many people hear themselves categorized by race#suddenly they feel burdened by the idea their race defines them#just like the words straight and cis really anger people#because it makes them feel Othered for once#and it’s disconcerting#white privilege (skylikethat)
