this post is dedicated to fuzzyroes

I am currently watching some SJW types rip apart white appropriation of Cinco de Mayo on facebook. They are wondering, "why do Americans celebrate Cinco de Mayo when they don't even like South Americans?"

:rolleyes:

wow. i thought the only trader's village was in grand prairie.

i haven't been there in a hot minute. my dad used to drag me there all the time but the elote and turkey legs were worth it.

only place you could buy a dog, a kitchen sink, a gun, converse, and toiletries all under "one roof"

today was clean-up day at our garden club (that's the best way i can describe it) and the first day of the season for a lot of us. tommy and i planted our seedlings of green pepps, tomatoes, serrano, cayenne, and asparagus. and i went nuts pulling up weeds all over the place. i fucking love pulling weeds.

a bunch of us brought food. we took guava n chz pastries. there was also beens n rice, chips, guacamole, salsa, zucc bread, tortillas, wine, and margarita. the leader of the group asked me i celebrated cinco de mayo and said no. but i was less annoyed by her question since she wasn't white.

please pull the weeds all over my backyard then, i hate it. i love planting flowers, fruits, and veggies, and even mowing, but hate pulling the weeds. it's finally gardening weather up here!! i want to plant daffodils for my daughter, because she always points them out whenever we walk past them, so i guess she likes them. :)

I think they have one in most the maj Texas cities. And yes, the incredible diversity of goods is insane. There was also a live band who were right up my alley, esp since I've lately been getting into diff types of music out here - ranchera and nortena, along with some classic cumbia.

yeah I am with you on this, it's like ironing, no matter how much time you spend on it, a perfect job can't be done, you know you're leaving bits of roots and seeds in the ground and they'll just come back, it's so frustrating.

I actually hate all aspects of gardening but I did it like you, for my kids. But sadly I wasn't very successful. good luck with your daffodils.

Thank you Em. The backyard I have now is huge compared to anywhere else I've ever lived, so I'm excited to fill it up. If only I could learn not to literally pick up the child and run whenever I see or hear a bee/wasp. Lol.

Hehe...when my kids were that age I was like that too, but we were in Australia so I was more on the lookout for mosquitos/spiders/leeches lol

ilikeplanets 05-06-2019 03:48 PM

I've been fortunate enough to never have to give leeches a thought. I don't think I could tolerate their presence well. Creepy crawly things really get to me, especially the types that bite or sting.

Rolling Green is pretty good, but the Loaded Bowl at Hardees is better. "I want a loaded bowl...." yeah, me too, guy.

Donít you love it when the good guy in a movie sticks it to the bad guy with a one-line zinger that shows him who is boss? We cheer at those moments, applauding the wit of the good guy who finally has the upper hand. I feel like this passage, in which Jesus gives it to the Pharisees and tells them whatís what, is similar to the climax of a movie when the hero verbally spars with the villain.

Shit. This week I scheduled an interview for next week at another job (even though I already have one) and I want both jobs. The one I have now is as a research asst and I work from home except for random meetings.

The other job is as an re-entry coordinator for a community-based mentoring program for 12 - 24 year olds who are either 1) gang-involved youth on probation, or 2) "at-risk" (this phrase is dumb) youth referred through local schools and community agencies.

It's a collaboration between three organizations. I would partner with parents, community groups, and the other two organizations to set up the kids up for re-entry and to reduce recidivism. I'd also coordinate detention facility visits.

But the job I have now gives me the kind of professional mentoring I've never had before (I'm the only fucking employee). It seems pretty valuable. WHAT TO DO WHAT TO DO

FoolofaTook 05-10-2019 03:10 PM

Will you be utilizing Sharter Typology in your mentoring?

ovary 05-10-2019 03:44 PM

Sounds like you'll make more connections in the professional scene by taking the re-entry coordinator. And a real job in the "industry" usually sounds better on a resume than "research assistant." Professional experience > professional mentoring (usually). But I don't know what your situation is obviously.

I do know that grad school is a big fucking shit-hole bull-shit ripoff, unless you're already rich and well-connected.

Ya. The place I am doing research for is rolling out a workforce development program at a K-8 school school for the parents of students using two-generational approach (2Gen if you're nasty). And one of their potential partners is the place where I am interviewing (I found the job on my own before getting the one I have now).

I have a lot of non-profit experience, but not a lot of personal connections. You're right that on the one hand I'd get more industry experience with the reentry role. But with my research position, I'll get a chance to interview parents and help design the entire project including evaluations. And I did get to meet some bigwigs...the lady I work for is rich as shit and her husband's investing company funded her start-up.

Even though I have NPO experience, I've never been involved in creating a program from scratch. Might be helpful to know what's needed since I'd love to start my own one day. But I really like direct service, too. If I weren't in school full-time I could work both jobs.

yo soy el mejor 05-10-2019 07:15 PM

One huge deal is the with the reentry program, 75%+ of my coworkers would black and brown people. Would be a nice change.
