So I work at a hotel that serves free breakfast and dinners (for guests*), though the dinners are only mon-thu.
If you're ever looking for a free meal, I'd recommend checking out if there are hotels near you that do the same. I'm going to reply with a few tips to keep in mind in case you're nervous/unsure how to pass as a guest.
1. Dressing how you would if you just woke up is fine. 100% normal. Some people get ready before breakfast, but tons don't.
one of the things that i'm not certain about but keep discovering is that everything so far that ever felt like a broken behavior or pattern of thought has a better purpose it could have served if i'd only given its source love and healing.
my perserverance that led me into folly, my imagination that led me into ambition, my faith, trust, and love that laid me open to abuse, each of these things was there for another reason.
It's taken me a very long time to unlearn a lot of the toxic ideas I gained over years of being in the illustration/art world.
We need to celebrate being "bad" at something, but doing it anyway, for the joy of it.
We need to celebrate singing at the top of your voice without caring what other people think.
There's nothing wrong with striving to be the best at something! But it's okay to just *do* things without measuring up. Enjoy what you do! Whether you do it for 40 hours a week or 10 mins
Whipping Girl, an ongoing thread
“While often different in practice, cissexism, transphobia, and homophobia are all rooted in oppositional sexism, which is the belief that female and male are rigid, mutually exclusive categories, ries, each possessing a unique and nonoverlapping set of attributes, aptitudes, abilities, and desires. Oppositional sexists attempt to punish or dismiss those of us who fall outside of gender or sexual norms because our existence threatens the idea that women and men are "opposite" sexes. This explains why bisexuals, lesbians, gays, transsexuals, and other transgender people-who may experience perience their genders and sexualities in very different ways-are so often confused or lumped into the same category (i.e., queer) by society at large.“
I am including this passage cause a) this has come up a lot here recently, and b) oppositional sexism isn’t a term that is still used so it’s important to define it now for future discussion.
On trans bodies +
I love trans bodies and I really love being a part of a community that celebrates trans bodies.
This is really the only place where I can find the kind of transgressive joy that comes from posting a nude and instead of being met with awkwardness, revulsion, fetishization or silence, I am met by warmth, love, appreciation and kindness.
And I get to see that experience repeated when people post their nudes again and again and again.
Don’t ever forget how powerful that is.
one of the ways i let myself and other people down is when i forget how strong i am. and that was even before now. i'm so much stronger.
but if you forget how strong you are, if you believe you're weak, it keeps you from being your best for yourself and others. you deny yourself access to your own strength.
if you've made it this far you're probably stronger than you think. it's a good possibility to keep your mind open to when you're afraid.
