    I’m gonna need people to stop using the word “fit” as if it were a body type.

    the-exercist:

    "Fit" just means that you’re physically sound. Your body is healthy, it works properly and you aren’t experiencing significant medical problems. It has absolutely nothing to do with what you look like. 

    If you’re trying to find an adjective to describe the muscular look that’s popular among women in the fitness community? It’s “thin,” the word you’re looking for is “thin.”

    Having visible muscles does not somehow negate the “thin.”

    I could not agree with this more. I consider myself fit. I also have a huge layer of fat on my body, but that doesn’t mean that I’m not fit. I lift more than most girls and I cycle on a somewhat regular basis. The last ride I did was 70 miles. Non-fit people can’t ride 70 miles. 

    Though according to this “thin” part of this statement, I would be considered “fat”. :D

    Letter to the NC General Assembly: I Can No Longer Afford to Teach →

    goldensunrises:

    Dear members of the North Carolina General Assembly,

    The language in this letter is blunt because the facts are not pretty. Teaching is my calling, a true vocation, a labor of love, but I can no longer afford to teach.

    I moved to North Carolina to teach and to settle in to a place I love. My children were born here; we have no plans to leave. I reassured my family in Michigan, shocked at my paltry pay and health benefits, that North Carolina had an established 200 year history of placing a high value on public education and that things would turn around soon.

    When I moved here and began teaching in 2007, $30,000 was a major drop from the $40,000 starting salaries being offered by districts all around me in metro Detroit, but it was fine for a young single woman sharing a house with roommates and paying off student loans. However, over six years later, $31,000 is wholly insufficient to support my family. So insufficient, in fact, that my children qualify for and use Medicaid as their medical insurance, and since there is simply no way to deduct $600 per month from my meager take-home pay in order to include my husband on my health plan, he has gone uninsured. We work opposite shifts to eliminate childcare costs.

    The public discourse on public assistance is that it is a stop-gap, a safety net to keep people from falling until they can get back on their feet. But as I see no end in sight to the assault on teacher pay, I will do what I have to do to support my family financially. We never wanted or expected to live in luxury. We did, however, hope to be able to take our little girls out for an ice cream or not wonder where we will find the gas money to visit their grandparents. And so, even though I am a great teacher from a family of educators and public servants and never imagined myself doing anything else, I am desperately seeking a way out of the classroom, and nothing about education in North Carolina breaks my heart more.

    I will make no apologies for saying that I am a great teacher. I run an innovative classroom where the subject matter is relevant and the standards are high. My teaching practice has resulted in consistently high evaluations from administrators, positive feedback from parents, and documented growth in students.

    I realize that no one in Raleigh will care or feel the impact when this one teacher out of 80,000 leaves the classroom. I understand. However, my 160 students will feel the impact. And 160 the next year. And the next. My Professional Learning Community, teachers around the county with whom I collaborate, will be impacted, and their students as well. Young teachers become great when they are mentored by experienced, effective educators, and all their students are impacted as well. When quality teachers leave the classroom, the loss of mentors is yet another effect. This is how the quiet and exponential decline in education happens.

    Higher teacher pay may be unpopular, and I am aware it is difficult to see the connection between teacher pay and a quality education for students, so I will try to make it clear. Paying me a salary on which I can live means I can stay in the classroom, and keeping me in the classroom means thousands of students over the next decade would get a quality education from me. It’s that simple.

    While I appreciate that Governor McCrory is advocating for a 1% raise for teachers in the coming school year, it is simply not enough. For me, that is $380, which after years of pay freezes, does not cover the negative change in my health coverage and copays. It does not cover the change in the cost of a gallon of milk, a gallon of heating oil, or a unit of electricity. It is not enough. A sobering fact: even a 20% raise would fall short of bringing me up to the 2007 pay scale for my current step, and that is in 2007 dollars.

    My students deserve a great, experienced teacher. As a professional with two degrees and four certifications, I deserve to make an honest living serving my community and this state.

    Respectfully,

    Lindsay Kosmala Furst

Doodling again now that I’ve finished my roughs for the new book. Saga is brilliant. Lying Cat is brilliant.
Fiona Staples did a signing at our shop last year just before Thought Bubble and she drew me a lovely sketch of The Stalk from this comic. I probably gibbered like a pratt, I always do when we run signings. But she was extremely lovely and I adore her artwork for this comic!

CUTEST LYING CAT EVER. OMG.
