I’ve been thinking about the time and effort that it takes to maintain relationships (of every kind) with other people. Social media can be really helpful for staying connected and building community, but sometimes I have to remind myself that keeping up with my friends by seeing what they post isn’t the same as fostering my connection with them. Relationship building is not a passive activity, and making time and reserving energy to really connect with others can be challenging, but it’s also healing and essential and good.
In last week’s episode, we talked about Jennifer’s Body! We both watched this cult favorite for the very first time this year, but if you grew up watching it or if Jennifer’s Body was part of your own queer awakening, we’d love to hear about your experience!
If you’re still in a Halloween/horror movie mood, you can read Christina's essay about Teeth here.
