COULD HAVE BECOME a mass murderer after I hacked my governor module, but then I realized I could access the combined feed of entertainment channels carried on the company satellites.

Chelsea Humphrey added a status update: Day 752 of January:

Tomorrow is the first of February and the children *may* go back to school for a half day tomorrow, unless A single snowflake drops from the sky. Or it doesn’t get to the double digits. Or someone stubs their left pinky toe at 3 am and can’t do the proper “get our children to school” rain dance. STIRCRAZYSTIRCRAZYBRINGWINEANDABABYSITTERANDALSOCHEEZITS

John F. Kennedy
“I believe in an America where the separation of church and state is absolute; where no Catholic prelate would tell the President -- should he be Catholic -- how to act, and no Protestant minister would tell his parishioners for whom to vote; where no church or church school is granted any public funds or political preference, and where no man is denied public office merely because his religion differs from the President who might appoint him, or the people who might elect him.”
John F. Kennedy

Ethan Rutherford
“Here's the thing: the act of reading changes your life, sometimes in large ways, sometimes in small ways, but every book you read asks you to move outside of yourself and your own experience to consider the lives of others. So I can't identify a particular book that altered my life, but I do know that the act of reading has pushed me to engage more deeply with the world (real and imagined), and I'm grateful for that.”
Ethan Rutherford

Ta-Nehisi Coates
“I was made for the library, not the classroom. The classroom was a jail of other people’s interests. The library was open, unending, free.”
Ta-Nehisi Coates, Between the World and Me

Lois McMaster Bujold
“I am who I choose to be. I have always been what I chose, though not always what I pleased.”
Lois McMaster Bujold, Memory

Maria Semple
“And I'm going to let you in on a little secret about life. You think it's boring now? Well, it only gets more boring. The sooner you learn it's on YOU to make life interesting, the better off you'll be.
Maria Semple, Where'd You Go, Bernadette
