I'm exhausted. Not the kind of exhausted that is relieved with sleep (although it would help if I did it more), but the kind that doesn't let go. Ingrained dirt on your skin. Scrubbing doesn't get it off.
I'm a sucker for a good set of organizational skills. Like a child, or a dog, I like routines and structure that work like compasses.
Something that really helps me stay efficient even when I don't really feel like it - and especially when I don't know where to begin - is neatly going over my lists. These lists are all found in my trusted bullet journal.
On many planes of communication and social interaction, we've opened a discussion that welcomes challenging views on our reality and society. While this discussion might happen at the cost of a few men's ego, reputation and wealth, there is a lot more at stake.

Just me? I think not.
Plastic waste is a huge issue we've only began talking about recently. Is the discussion a symptom of greater change in favor of environmental issues, or is it a quick fix so we can move on to the next item on the agenda?
SEO also means that if you want your texts to be read, you've got to buckle under to online peer pressure lest you'll be left out in the proverbial rain like an orphan in a Dickens novel.
