Is it okay to say that “volksgeist” as articulated by Herder is similar to a personification of national culture (“spirit”), broadly construed??

For context I am hella drunk

Tawny sent me this snapchat and then told me not to open it until tomorrow morning for “documentation purposes” but even though that is the best thing ever said to me she still didn’t take into account my INTERNET PRESENCE

"#war cw" seems so bizarre; I almost didn’t write it because I was like "what a bizarre thing to even say"

But then I remembered that all trauma is bizarre—that’s the nature of trauma: it’s bizarre. You shouldn’t even have lived through it but you did. You are an accident; you lived through something unlivable and now you are on the other side, talking to other people who have no idea where you are coming from, writing out shit like #incest cw and #war cw

On more serious note, PTSD dogs for veterans are so fucking therapeutic. They’re like the one person you can spill your guts to and never worry about ever being judged or have that secret divulged. There are times when I definitely prefer the company of a dog over a human. 

Therapy animals save lives.

These dogs are even still so much more amazing. They check rooms before their handler enters, so they can clear it to help the person feel safe. Like in the gif, they are there when panic attacks or nightmares occur, to be something for the person to help ground themselves on, or yes just to turn on the lights. Even more amazing, many people are able to reduce their medication when they have a PTSD service dog there to help them. These dogs are useful for not just veterans, but also victims of abuse, accident trauma, natural disasters, and others. Their training allows them to be useful in situations where medical assistance is needed, as well. Some PTSD dogs are trained to recognize repetitive behaviours in handlers, and signal the handler to break the repetition and stopping the behaviour and possibly injury. 
Service dogs in general are just awesome. Remember to respect any that you see out in public. They are not there for you to walk up to and play with, even the puppies!

"That’s triggering"

-me to my inbox whenever I get one of those automated emails about my classmates updating the course wiki because they actually ~participate~ in our intentional learning community instead of just lying on their side and emitting a constant high-pitched whine

All I ever do is antagonize sex-positive peer educators/win
