"Work/life balance" implies you're not alive while working.
‘There is no agony like it. You sit in a room, biting pencils, looking at a typewriter, walking about, or casting yourself down on a sofa, feeling you want to cry your head off.’
- Agatha Christie, on Writing
"Do you have a moment?" the empath said.
"Of course, dear," said the telepath.
"You know I can't help reading feelings?"
"Please read my mind."
"If you... Oh. I don't love you any more?"
"I thought you ought to know."
"Thank you. I still like you?"

Veganism as colonialism Show more
The final nail in the coffin, as a vegan of 7 years, that convinced me veganism is not a universal good, was watching white vegans on the blue hellsite shout at Inuit folks for eating seal.
Not only is it incredibly difficult and ecologically damaging to ship fresh vegetables to the Arctic, but what right does your colonizer ass have to tell someone whose culture has lived in harmony with the land for more than 20 thousand years how they are supposed to eat ethically. And lord help me should I hear another person say that the Inuit should not inhabit their ancestral lands because you feel bad about them eating those adorable sacks of blubber.
Veganism presupposes a flattened concept of food production and relationship to place. It presumes that everyone can and should eat the same way. It lacks any concept of the ecological, of the contingent, of the contextual.
Ecological food cultures must be adapted to place and time, and sometimes that means eating meat.
