If you ever wondered how to study chemistry with an insurmountable broken heart, this is definitely the way to do it. Transcribed from my chemistry notebook.
We used to make salt. You were chlorine, and I was sodium. Emotionally unstable and volatile as all hell, if you threw me in the water…
My first Tumblr post, about my ex (now bff). Wow.
Stand for Elizabeth Warren
In front of the Tsongas, 5 or 5:30, debate day (Monday). Show you appreciate her stance on contraception and reproductive rights!!
Today and yesterday, I participated in the best piece of activism that I have ever been a part of. We had a mix of pro-life and pro-choice voices and used the blatant lies of the Genocide Awareness Project as a sex education opportunity. We did condom demos, gave out pamphlets on safe sex and abstinence (as well as LGBTQ safe sex and counseling resources) so people could prevent pregnancy, and cleared up some misinformation about abortion. I am so grateful to everyone who helped (too many to tag!), how many people brought us food to thank us, and everyone that let me show them how to put a condom on today. So proud to be a UML student right now.
Today is the Day
Meet us on the quad, 8:30-3:30, for some PEACEFUL counter-protesting action.
Alternate pathways and the location of the GAP exhibit
We just got word that this protest will be on BOTH WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY of this week, and they have permits from 8:30-5.
We will be counter-protesting. Bring signs with anything you can think of, like “”, “I support the right to choose”, or any other ideas you can think of!
For the Record…
We are not against the God and Pizza events that happen on Wednesday nights run by the Catholic Student Union. In the words of CSU’s president, Max:
I would just like to clarify something. I am the president of the Catholic Student Union here at Umass Lowell, we do have a group called GAP on campus which happens every Wednesday. It’s called GAP because it stands for God and Pizza. It’s our bible study and social hour (you’re all welcome to join us at any time). WE ARE NOT ASSOCIATED WITH THIS GROUP COMING TO CAMPUS. While we are against abortion, we do not condone public presentation of graphic images.
I believe I can speak for the rest of the UML Against GAP community in saying that we are totally okay with healthy, pro-life dialogue that does not involve many practices that Bad-GAP uses, including medical inaccuracies, graphic imagery, or any triggering material which may trivialize current and historical genocides. I trust Max and my other CSU friends that you could find that healthy dialogue at God and Pizza.
We got a twitter!
