My most memorable moment this year was … #HappyNewYear #2018Memory

That's the sad thing - there weren't any memorable moments, and that wasn't for any lack of looking on my part. I lived a quiet life, not because I wanted one, but because I didn't have any other choice.
Everywhere I went, nobody talked to anybody other than the people they came in with.

Hard to escape solitude on those terms, especially when you're long term unemployed, stuck in the "no experience, no work" cycle and nobody is willing to give you a chance to get out of it.
There is one way I've seen other poor people escape the boredom, and that's by being violent lunatics, which might be one reason why the rate of violent crime is as high as it is in Chicago.

But that's not me and it's not going to be me, so I have to ask, is there another way?

Got to see #Starship under construction today!
@SpaceX wants to send humans to the Moon & Mars, they are building Starship to complete the mission. The first hopper test launch will take place in Boca Chica (Brownsville, Texas) around March/April of this year. #BFR #HappyNewYear
Took these photos today. This #Starship “hopper” version that's under construction, won’t reach the 348 feet height of the final version but its diameter of 30 feet does match the #SpaceX design plans.
So much to look forward to at SpaceX South Texas this year. Can't wait to see Starship take off... ♡

Thread: #FalseGodofNationalism

“Our age is one in which men have turned away from the eternal God of the universe, and decided to worship at the shrine of the god of nationalism.”

#MLK (1953) #HappyNewYear⁠ ⁠
“We are all familiar with the creed of this new religion. It affirms that each nation is an absolute sovereign unit acknowledging no control save its own independent will. The watchword of this new religion: “My country right or wrong.”” #MLK #FalseGodofNationalism #HappyNewYear
“This new religion has its familiar prophets and preachers. In Germany it was preached by Hitler. In Italy it was preached by Mussilini. And in America it is being preached by the McCarthys and the Jenners, the advocators of white supremacy, and the America first movements.”

#HappyNewYear, Twitter. I'm gonna make 2019 a good one, mark my words.

For those of you who know me for my #Doom community work, let me take you on a quick retrospective of my 2018.
I broke a lot of new ground in my Doom mapping this year. Lots of challenges that saw beating, big projects that saw releasing, and many ups and downs in between. Got even more planned for 2019, as there's *still* lots of things I want - and at this point NEED - to have done.
Let's go blow by blow for each month, then. Links will be provided at the end.

I'm cheating with the first one admittedly, but it is required mentioning...

Welcome to 2019 & #HappyNewYear!

This year, as we continue to build the #BlueWave2019 & #BlueWave2020, I challenge myself & all of you to build selfcare into the daily routine.

If you thought the midterms were nuts, wait till this cycle hits!
So what does it mean to build self-care into the routine?

Haha, trick question!
It's different for everyone!
I know, we all want easy answers.
Sorry, no can do.

So today, as we're all recovering from last night's celebrations, come up with 3 things.

Here, I'll start!
1- Hydrate: No, don't drink more coffee. ☕ Drink water. Or tea. Or Gatorade!

2- Go Outside: Because "cave dweller" isn't a good look for me. Walk and do @ZombiesRunGame.

3- Eat Better: Eat breakfast. Before noon. I WILL adult, gorramnit!

What are your 3?
#SelfcareIsResistance This is the year I will be stronger, braver, kinder, and unstoppable. This year I will be FIERCE.

Wishing everyone a #HappyNewYear again! But as much as I do, I also know that EU citizens at home in the UK are worried about what lies ahead, esp. after recent revelations about #SettledStatus that confirmed that the government intend to use it to control who of us can stay. 1/
So if you want to stand with us and start the #NewYear with something positive that really helps EU citizens, become an #EUcitizensChampion on #NewYearsDay. Donations make a real difference, enabling @The3Million to continue their vital work.… 2/
I am in awe of what @The3Million have achieved. While #SettledStatus is not what we were promised, without @The3Million the rights of EU citizens at home in the UK would be in an even worse place—they have done and achieved a lot, so please support them so they can continue. 3/3

I was paralyzed on Aug 26, 2016.
It changed my life forever.
Fortunately I was able to access a community of #disabled writers, artists, musicians and more on here.
It helped me survive.
I met the fantastic Alice Wong who does @DisVisibility from whom I have learned so much.
I already knew @nicolaz who is a terrific writer friend and disability rights activist. She introduced me to more people.
One night I met @MortuaryReport on here. Then @Keah_Maria. Then @Tinu. And my dear friend @PKhakpour.
And everyone's best activist pal, @morethanmySLE.
I watched @Mattbc do extraordinary work pro bono for people. @Nataliew1020 models every day what it is to love your severely #disabled child with all your heart.
And so many others dealing with chronic illness and #disability and mental illness--all helping others to navigate.

As surely as the Sun rises in the east and sets in the west may we know the constancy of God's faithfulness in 2019. May he be gracious, guide, protect and promote. May he be generous and merciful unto us. #HappyNewYear 1/3
May our nation be blessed. May we know peace, and progress. May poverty leave our land. May our dreams fructify. May this heritage be our pride. May our youths be blessed. May imaginations soar and achievements bloom. #HappyNewYear 2/3
May the barren suckle. May families be one. May the searching heart find and the longing heart be found. May God remove our shame, assuage the lonely. May joy be our lot. Amen. #HappyNewYear 3/3

1. Okay, I'm finally sitting down to do my own #2018InReview thread. A lot has happened in my life this year. I've made concrete progress as a writer, speaker, activist, and #Exvangelical advocate.. I'm in a transitional space but feeling somewhat more hopeful about the future.
2. I think I'll go essentially chronologically. Back in January, I was teaching what would become my last semester at the University of South Florida in Tampa. I had hoped that maybe another temporary but full-time with benefits position there would come along, but it did not.
3. I was left with the choice of eking out a living as an adjunct instructor with no benefits, or moving back in with my parents in Indiana for a while to try and see if I could keep the momentum up with the popular engagement through writing, podcasts, radio, etc. I'd been doing

It is your last day in your old apartment. This house has been both good and bad, filled with all sorts of memories and you do have a couple of testimony from staying here. But, times have changed.
You just got a bigger, more beautiful and most importantly, a better apartment. Whether you want to or not, you just have to move. You have outgrown your former house.

Feliz Año Nuevo! 🥳Situamos aquí (arbitrariamente) que hemos completado una vuelta alrededor del Sol. Y éste lleva unas 20 entorno al centro de la Vía Láctea (lo que llamamos “Año Galáctico”). Así es que también podríamos celebrar algún día el Año Nuevo Galáctico🤔#Feliz2019
1. De hecho existe una iniciativa para ello: como el Sol tarda entre 225 a 250 millones de años en completar su vuelta entorno a la Vía Láctea, no podríamos celebrarlo, así es que celebramos una unidad más pequeña: “El Tick de Año Galáctico”. #HappyNewYear
2. El “Tick de Año Galáctico” se define como 1 centésima de segundo de arco de esta vuelta, que serían unos 634 días terrestres, o 1,7 años terrestres. El próximo se celebrará el 21 de Marzo del 2020 (y será el Tick de Año Galáctico número 237) #Ciencia #HappyNewYear #Feliz2019

A #NewYearsEve #thread

On 🇪🇺 & 🇬🇧 & 🇳🇴 & 🦄🦄🦄

May 2019 bring much 🎂 to have & eat!

Due thanks @SebDance for inspiration
Some clever 🇬🇧 spin doctors have added a ➕ to 🇳🇴

assumedly to make it more alluring?

@USverdrup, Director at Norwegian Institute of International Affairs @NUPInytt noted to the 🇳🇴 @Aftenposten daily:
“If you stand at the edge
you no longer seek the best solution”
Please consider this:

Did any Central & Eastern European country joining 🇪🇺 2004
1st knock @EFTAsecretariat's door
as their preferred ‘solution’ for #SingleMarket access?

#EFTA & the #EEA Agreement it administers
= a barren 🏜️ for #democracy

A truly grey Brussels #bureaucracy.

Inspired by @BillGates, I made a resolution in the beginning of 2018 that I'll read 53 books in the whole year, averaging a book per week. As 2018 ends, I am happy to share that I could meet my target, and hence made this year intellectually stimulating and unforgettable for me.
In addition to my personal preferences, my reading list is influenced by the likes of @rammadhavbjp, @bibekdebroy, @HindolSengupta, @BillGates and @PandaJay. I read the following books this year:
1) The Bitcoin Standard by @saifedean
2) Our Time has Come by @AyresAlyssa
3) China's India War by Bertil Linter
4) Skin in the Game by @nntaleb
5) Factfullness by @OlaRosling et al
6) Enlightenment Now by @sapinker
7) The Future of Humanity by @michiokaku
8) Adi Shankaracharya by @PavanK_Varma
9) Directorate S by @SteveCollNY

Endearing quips, and makeup tips, and youtube clips premiered at last,
the cheer of dawning self-belonging near and spotted like giraffe,
revered compassion drawn alongside queer headstrong co-conscious sass
while longing for aplomb and steadfast calm no wrongs can overcast.

My misphrased ways and all your days ablaze like Pompeii's aftermath,
this draft a prolonged trompe l'oeil of phrase, praise raining down like ash,
to counter downcast shrugs without drugs like the hugs you want unasked,
it's backdraft brashly crafted tone the poem's gemstone enclasped in brass,
Enthusiastically condoning trespass through life's crass morass.

Merry Christmas everyone.

Powerful synthesis of the evidence thus far on #Guccifer2 from @with_integrity:

Guccifer 2.0 Game Over – Year End Review…
A Christmas present that everyone who appreciates the truth will thoroughly enjoy.…
Discussing the #Forensicator's first analysis of #NGPVAN:

"That study has been the subject of some controversy, although mostly built on conflating the findings with various interpretations of them, and with reporting on the study conducted by third parties."

As #The5Million of us go into our 3rd Christmas of uncertainty, I would like to take a moment to look back not at all the awful things 2018 brought, but at what has kept me going — or rather: who. And with this thread about amazing people I wish you all a 🎄Merry Christmas🎄 1/
First up is @Scotkraut! We’ve done so much together this year — in Edinburgh, London, Newcastle and Berlin ... from marches, to birthdays, to Brexit retreats. We even tried out the Brexit unicorns 🦄 Unsurprisingly, they didn’t work. But our friendship sure does xx 2/
Then I think of my friend Alexander. A fellow German with a great mind and an equally great sense of humour who makes me laugh — sadly now from back in Germany rather than in London as he and his family joined the #Brexodus in the summer.… 3/

(THREAD) Imagine walking into school - #FirstDaysofSchool. The most significant thing that anyone wants is to know that they belong, feel included, cared for, to feel significant, to know that they matter. As educators, families give us their greatest trust each day #MoralPurpose
From the moment students "step" onto school grounds, everything they see, hear, feel and experience gives them a message about whether they are valued, they matter, if this is a safe place to be in, grow, take risks, challenge, create, to LEARN. #3rdTeacher #GlobalCompetencies
We know that in order for Ss to learn, they must feel safe & included. Neuroscience helps us to understand that when ANY one feels unsafe, theyre not able to learn, engage in complex thinking. Solid #assessment is important & necessary, but without feeling safe, its not effective
