living in a country with very different race definitions than the usa is weird, because i've been considered white all my life and identify as such, but i once posted a video on tumblr and someone said i was black
i genuinely got that "excuse me????" moment and i think about that a lot when i don't understand what the fuck people in the usa are talking about in race discussions
i just wished having nice, pretty and well ventilated streets instead of tall buildings that trap you in a warm hell wasn't a privilege sometimes
thanks you all for the tips! he's four, for those asking
Announcing #SolarpunkActionWeek 2020!
As those of you who still hang around tumblr may know, the dates for next year's Solarpunk Action Week have been announced as March 8th through 14th. As with 2019's week, this will be an event focusing on direct action, mutual aid, honing practical skills, and building a new world!
An early announcement gives plenty of time to make plans, get friends together, and involve local organizations. If you need inspiration, check out: #StealThisTag, #SolarpunkResource, #SunDIY, and of course #SolarpunkActionWeek for last year's actions. This account as well as the tumblr will also be posting ideas frequently

You live in a small cozy apartment. Your neighbor to the left is a brain surgeon, the neighbor to your right is a fry cook.
Across the hall, the daycare center looks after the kids, it’s usually full of retirees, they get a lot of joy from the children.
You go to work. Your boss, yourself, and the janitor all make the same pay. You work to do a good job. This seems sensible.
After work, you take the train out of town, there are collectives there with fresh veggies and milk. You bring them some canning supplies, and hang out for a bit. You admire their agrarian lifestyle, but you love the city. You leave with a big bag of apples, you try to pay, but they won’t let you, money seems cheap. Next time you’ll bring your fiddle, you promise.
You miss the train, but there are plenty of busses. You get on one and find a seat. The person to your left is a plumber, the person to your right designs satellites, a singer stands, and begins to sing.
That seems right
