For those of you who have been curious, since 2014 started, I have:

1.) Been working two jobs. A zine editor and a volunteer coordinator for a feminist organization.

2.) Working on a directed research project with my adviser, using Foucauldian analysis to talk about autistic youth who are trapped in the Troubled Teen Industrial Complex.

3.) Gearing up to do my Honour’s Thesis on the way medical/scientific literature (doesn’t) talk about autistic women/girls’ sexualities.

4.) Going to therapy every Friday and making tremendous progress on recovering from my post traumatic stress disorder and flare-ups of my eating disorder.

5.) Volunteering with various feminist and Indigenous organizations in Victoria, particularly those that cater towards youth and students.

6.) Going to the gym and swimming every other day. I need a new bathing suit, my other one is completely chlorinated.

7.) Taking three classes.

8.) Writing one poem/short story per week to fulfill my promise to Chrystos to have a book of poems and short stories for her ready in five years.

9.) Getting into new music.

10.) Learning how to cook vegetables in new and interesting ways.
