Some of you know that I’m a librarian. I’ve been thinking a lot, since moving back to the US, about what skills I can bring to bear on making my community and country better places to live. Since I’m trained in curating, analyzing and sharing information, I decided that what I could do is help people learn better skills and dispositions for dealing with fake/false news and media manipulation. I’m partnering with @humanitiesmontana for their Informed Citizens series and my first gig is at my own @missoulapubliclibrary talking about how fake news spreads. I’m super honored and more than a little freaked out because, 1) it’s my library and I want to do a good job for them, and 2) it’s a complicated topic with exactly zero easy answers. Anyway, it’s my way of giving back (and fighting back) using the tools and education I have. If you’re interested in me using this space over 2020 to share tips and tricks with you let me know. I’m sure I can fit those in between photos of cats and cars! 😉#fakenews #fightfakenews #librarian #librarianlife #humanitiesmontana #informedcitizens #democracy #criticalthinking #mediamanipulation #missoula #missoulapubliclibrary #think #library #loveyourlibrary
Man. I did not think @ourblackcoffee @blackcoffee.mt could make me any happier, but these gift boxes are the. best. Needed some Missoula gifts for friends out of state and this is perfect. #blackcoffeeroastingco #coffee #madeinmissoula #buylocal #missoula #theperfectgift #missoulamade #locallyowned #ilovecoffee
Today I went to the vet and got all but three of my toenails cut before I bit the tech and drew blood. The vet said I’m healthy enough to put up a good fight. I’m told you never get a second chance to make a first impression. I think they’ll remember me. #thejadekitten #biter #vetvisit #dontmesswithme #vicious #showemwhosboss #cat #kitten #catsofinstagram #kittensofinstagram #ihatethevet
