I got asked by a friend,

“Why does @itsBayleyWWE look so sad now?”

They were so intrigued, so I’m sharing here too...
Bayley came to NXT, ready to rock!

So bright eyed & ready to live her dream. She couldn’t believe that she’d made it this far & was freaking out that some WWE Legends she grew up idolizing, were now her peers.

The fans loved her while the locker room dismissed her. They saw her as a fan & didn’t believe in her.

So she doubled down on her positivity & outgoing personality. She was a fighter, but more importantly to her, she was a hugger.

She was going to do things her way!

Good morning followers new and old! I really appreciate your support of me & #twerkwithlizzo. I’m practicing self-restraint & not looking at the comments on the stories, just at what people tweet directly at me.
When I’m not twerking with Lizzo, I am a scholar of black feminist theory & disability studies, currently on leave from teaching. I often tweet about scholarship, activism, & politics, but also pop culture, fashion & makeup. One work thing I often do is tweet about my #goals.
I try to model SMART (specific, measurable, achieveable, relevant, time-based) goal-making for academics. Today’s #goals:
-Catch up on email (1hr or less)
-Write award acceptance speech for Friday (1.5 hrs or less)
-Give feedback on a paper (1.5hrs or less)
-Read for 1 hr

It's Buddy Holly's birthday. Here he is with Waylon Jennings (and offscreen middle-finger guy) in a photo booth in Grand Central Station a month before the plane went down. 1959. Thread to follow:
A couple of my faves: "Midnight Shift." I find "Annie" to be a damn aspirational figure. She works hard, plays hard. #goals.
The "Holly Hop" rocks.

1. Establish the credibility and scale of the story.

2. Challenge the propaganda and framing of the story.

3, Raise awareness beyond the initial small circle.

I doubt any media would have followed up on #Epstein if not for this Op.

Twitter friends, it seems a number of us could use a bright spot today. May I gush to you about how bizarrely, wonderfully accessible the @FassmC conference was? Note-taking encouraged. 👇 #thread #FASSM 1//21
THE BASICS: microphone usage was the expectation, not an afterthought. ASL translators facilitated throughout. The conference venue was a short walk from the hotel, but a van was available. Elevators worked! There was a quiet room consistently available nearby. Childcare! 2/21
Conference organizers reached out early to check in about access needs, including print and food concerns (allergies, other dietary restrictions and needs). Attendees were explicitly asked to avoid nuts and perfumed/scented products. There were pronoun stickers for badges. 3/21

Good morning bbs. We are so close to the weekend! Today I’m attending a protest & having lunch with a colleague so my work #goals are minimal:
-Complete reverse outline process to re-organize my book chapter

Don’t know what a reverse outline is? Ooh baby are you in for a treat!
Thread on #writing & #revision: A reverse outline is a way to see the structure of what you’ve written in a draft in order to reorganize it. You start by marking up a pdf or print copy of your draft & numbering every paragraph. My book chap has 33 paragraphs.
Once you’ve numbered, make a list from 1 to whatever number of paragraphs you have. Re-read each paragraph & write a short summary (a phrase, not even a sentence) describing what each paragraph is about or doing.

Leadership advice #1: #Goals - When you can't achieve goals. There are two reasons for it. Either the goal is unrealistic, or your strategy is not efficient. You will need to make a change in one of them.
Real life example: One of my employees was struggling with a personal goal of reading a book every month. I suggested either you change 1 book a month to 1 book in two months (Change of goal) or instead of targeting 1 book a month, target pages per month(Change of strategy).
Achieving goals are significant even if they are tiny and insignificant because constant failure in achieving goals demoralises you and you will eventually abandon those goals.

Millennials love the Sims because it is THE millennial game:

• pretend you can buy a house
• pretend you can afford furniture
• pretend you can choose a career
• pretend your career skill is rewarded
• pretend your hobbies make money
• pretend your needs are met
• pretend you have control over your life
• pretend you can remodel your house
• pretend your money increases
• pretend your romance is safe
• pretend hospitals are free
• pretend kids are happy
• pretend pets are affordable
• pretend switching career is easy

What I watched today: part 23 of a Sims let's play by Kelsey Impicciche doing the 100 baby challenge.

The first episode has 16 million views.

The Sims is still super popular because generation Z is even worse off than us.

Lets make pretend houses 🙏

It’s #Monday, I’m boozing it up at a 4 seat bar, the #barkeep is a long pourer, and I’m all fucking set if I get something stuck between my teeth.👇🙃 #RandomThoughts #drinking #OutAndAbout
Shooting the shit with a friend, she’s proud to be doing well with her plants - unusual for her.

The key was a #video explaining the benefits of pruning.

She needs REASONS. She got them.

Apparently, pruning in a particular manner stimulates growth hormones.
Of course, this led to me initiating a discussion about the #movie I just watched on Hulu, called “The German Doctor.”

The main character was Josef Mengele. #ThisHappened

People, this is why I’m known in my circles as “The Black Hole Of Conversation.” SMTH

Back after a weeklong personal/professional trip and honestly dragging. First, unpacking & settling in. Then, work. #goals:
-Catch up on email
-Make a to do list for this week & next
-Write letter of recommendation
-Complete an article peer review
Status update: Almost 11:30 and I’ve mostly unpacked, caught up on e-mail & wrote a letter of rec. Doing laundry to finish the unpacking, then the peer review. Then lunch. Lunch is a must today. Still so very tired.
Completed my goals for today before 4! Which means I can squeeze in some reading before it’s quittin time!

#Faith happens only when the #duality has fallen; it is not a #belief against #doubt.

When belief and doubts both have disappeared, then something happens which is faith, which is #trust.
When desiring disappears there is trust!

#Trust means moving with #life without any #expectations, #desires, demands of your own. Not #asking, not #complaining. Whatsoever happens, #accepting it with deepest #gratitude and #awareness.
Simply seeing the #reality, that the #opposite is implied everywhere, #trust happens.

It is not in any #helplessness that you #accept. It is simply the nature of #life that the opposite is implied.

Looking at the #fact, #truth, deep inside you, gives you trust..

every year I give my #neurology residents a very personal talk on how I sought to overcome #burnout during #residency. I call it “finding the good.” I gave that talk to my residents today, and it contains my core beliefs as a clinician educator. #meded 🧠
(these are some realizations that helped me, and your mileage with them will vary. not all will resonate with all, of course. I welcome your comments, anecdotes, and additions. but, for what it’s worth, here are my educational mantras)
“finding the good” is a creative, proactive endeavor composed of generosity of spirit, cognizance of the gravity of others’ situations, deep listening, and creative thinking. there are no protocols or algorithms for finding the good, though a few pointers follow...

I am capturing all of the @IndigenousX #ChangeTheNation pieces in one thread because you all need to save this thread - read them all and make sure you share our words and thoughts with everyone around you.
Be on the right side of history.
First cab off the rank was the inimitable @LukeLPearson who enunciates the reasons why tokenism won’t cut it.
We have Lee Bevan talking about the realities of life for #IndigenousX people and why it is critical to #ChangeTheNation

Good morning world. The semester is creeping up on me so I think it’s time to get back to doing daily work #goals! I know today is Saturday but I’ve been caretaking all week so I’m working today.
Today’s #goals:
-Catch up on email
-Prepare one lecture start to finish (read the readings, write lecture, make PowerPoint, integrate with @tophat & practice for timing)
-Meet with co-author to outline our next article
-Read primary sources for 1hr
For folks who are new to my account, I do these daily #goals most days during the semester in line with the practices of @NCFDD which helps faculty be more productive while maintaining work/life balance. Highly recommend to all academics (esp if your institution will pay!).

Whenever I need to feel grateful for my divorce, I read r/relationships
If you’re going through a breakup now and it seems like it will never get better - it does.

I didn’t believe it either.

But eventually you’ll emerge, stronger, smarter, and better able to form a fully adult partnership. 💖
And you’ll never relate to any question on r/relationships ever again #goals

erm. being born into extreme wealth & instant fame is the exact opposite of “self made”
starting on 3rd base makes it real easy to get a home run. acknowledging that doesn't take away that person's success or wealth. i'll never understand why people on this app put on capes for folks who don't give a fuck about them. but go off i guess.
i apologize for saying Kylie Jenner was "born into wealth & fame" i totally ignored that she invested HER OWN 250k from modeling jobs she EARNED after using her reality tv checks to get plastic surgery to get modeling jobs & brand endorsements to start her company #SelfMadeWomen

I've been part of the Twitter resistance for a year now. I'm going to share some thoughts about why & how I resist.

Some people may not like some things I say here. I’m sorry for that, but they need to be said. 1 #WhyIResist #HowIResist #RebelScum #TheResistance
Some things in the first year were fun: meeting like-minded people, the #scifi characters, learning how to take effective action. Celebrating #victories like beating the #ACA repeal bills.

A lot of it wasn't fun - the threats of nuclear war, the daily stress of bad news. 2
Follow parties were fun, and a good way to promote a message and raise awareness, connect with other resistors and grow our followings. They had themes and served a purpose and there was about about one a month.  3 #PartyWithAPurpose #trending #amplify #effective
