My Facebook and other social media pages follow a vast array of people and blogs and news sites and international pages etc. I thought I’d write down the posts verbatim to document what it looks like when you live internationally and don’t block anyone just because they have different views. This is Monday, July 1st and here is what is going on on my phone in the order that I see the notifications and scroll the feeds (only to 1,000 words because I could do this for way too long) startinggg now:
