Getting the pool is not that expensive. Operating is expensive. Apart from energy cost requires ongoing water maintenance and periodic equipment repairs.

A 40' x 8' swimming pool with a hot tub partition sounds divine. Now if only I had the space for such a thing.

I've wanted to combine several containers and build a modular house from containers but my city specifically forbids using shipping containers :(

Instead of algorithms it should be machine learning of course.

The Year the Holiday Plans Were Upset

2 Comments

Some of my friends are talking about how they’re not going home for Thanksgiving or Christmas, because, at least for this one year, they can’t be with their family members who voted for Trump.

I don’t have this particular problem — my plans are to see family here in Seattle.

But here’s what I want to say: your family loves you, and not that many people in the world do, and you love them.

And I’ve had last Thanksgivings and last Christmases with several family members, and I never knew at the time it was the last one. You just can’t know.

I’m so glad I don’t have to make this decision myself. I understand both sides, and I wouldn’t criticize anybody for choosing either way.

It just sucks that anybody has to think about this. But they do.

Pardon the frankness, but you are making a mistake. Go to your parents and go to protest. Trumps come and go, family stays.

The thing is I'm not sure they really do love me. Not the real me anyway. I haven't been able to be myself around them in nearly a decade. Not without them screaming or talking over me. And for what its worth, my "alternative lifestyle" they disapprove of is being a working mom with a husband who pitches in around the house. I am so tired of fighting them and putting up with their bullshit. I would rather spend my time with the people who do care than my awful family.

This is the position I'm in. My parents are immigrants who live in Ohio and I cannot come to terms with their position and their vote. They were not misled by media; they were honest Trump supporters who somehow believe he would be best for our country. They don't believe me about any of the racism or bigotry that's showing up in his administration, never mind the last 18 months.

I wrote an open letter to them but I have yet to publish it about my decision to not come back this year for Thanksgiving, instead paying the $75 plane ticket change fee to protest in D.C. on January 20th.

Samuel, I'm sorry that you are faced with this. This was a hard election on many people. Take care with those you love and yourself. "I'm not giving up and neither should you"

I hope that you have nearby friends and chosen family with whom to celebrate—and prepare resistance. The years to come will be bad, and solidarity will be necessary.

I'm on the same boat. I'm making the choice to go see family but am anxious about what conversations could come up... What I'll say if they do.

If you feel you can't sit at the table with them this year, not without having possibly irreparable arguments. A bit of time will help. But in your parents corner, remember they are probably surrounded by people and messages that were all consistently pro trump, anti Hillary, anti establishment, with everyone believing them...
