People look down on McDonald’s employees but fail to realize that if all these folks left McDonald’s and pursued “better careers”  your ass wouldn’t be able to get a McDouble with an Oreo McFlurry at 3am.

We live in a society that’s sexist in ways it doesn’t understand. One of the consequences is that men are extremely sensitive to being criticized by women. I think it threatens them in a very primal way, and male privilege makes them feel free to lash out.

I took an unintended hiatus from Krav in July and August…planned to return in Sept and just saw that the instructor and his fam will be on a trip through late Sept-October. Eeeks. I need to reconsider my training schedule for the next few months….

Originally I meant to go to Krav on Mondays and do BJJ on Wednesdays and Thursdays (plus an unscheduled 3rd day of it)….I guess I have more time now to BJJ now.
