Back to the Himalayas with Jeff Rasley
"About jeff. Welcome to the show. Thank you camping. Glad to be here happy. Have you tell us a little bit more about yourself well. I grew up in a small town in northern indiana gauchan. Indiana and i was all set to go off to college when it was time and i ended up dropping out after two days and just didn't feel like that was what i really wanted to do. After having spent my whole long life of eighteen years in school so i went to work in a factory saved up some money and then mom reluctantly drove me to the edge of town. I stuck out my son and he tried to cross country. But i did end up going back to college after my parents told me if i didn't they were going to kill me and i thought okay choices college death. I'll take college and ended up. Really loving academics. At a serious level went to the university of chicago than went to law. School eventually went to seminary so ended up spending a lot of time in the classroom. I'd even taught a few college classes practiced law for thirty years retired. And i suppose what's really brought us together is that i written ten books. Several of which are about what. I call philanthropy trekking in nepal himalayas grew so but is that exactly. What is philanthropy attracting. Yeah it it. Means a combination of fee lows. Which is greek for love and anthropologists philanthropy. Means love of humanity in. So i combine that with tracking. And so i've been to nepal fourteen times in started a foundation over there so i combined tracking with philanthropy led an organiz many groups of truckers and many of which have been involved with the mission of the foundation started which is called the possibility foundation. What exactly does the bassett village foundation do well. It's concentrated in a remote area of eastern nepal. Which is not on any of the popular trekking trails. A set of the first time. I was there which was in two thousand eight. My little group of truckers were only the second group of people from the outside world that had ever visited abilities which was an amazing experience because they were living basically the same way they had for the last five hundred years but anyway the foundation does is. I developed this relationship. Was that village. And we have helped to build a school hydroelectric system water system. Our most recent effort was little health clinic and we also help to rebuild the village which was partially destroyed from two major earthquakes. Back in twenty fifteen the same earthquakes that sarah safari was in when she was tracking mount everest in the last episode so our mission goal is to work with the local people to finance the projects that they would like to bring up their standard of living in terms of education sanitation healthcare those sorts of efforts but all of those projects have been requested by the village not suggested by us the outsiders the funders donors to the foundation members. And the reason for that is. I think it's very important for this. Kind of development work really to be primarily in controlled by the people at supposed to benefit so that we don't develop a kind of dependency mentality so the school the water system the electrical system the villagers build it themselves with their own hands and they own they run it and we just provide financial assistance and expertise. When it's ask for school cool. i was talking to somebody else as well. Today that happened to be working with foundations that affected the same area. About empowering nepali women roller. You should connect us. Sarah safari yeah. She's really cool. Where did you grow up. Like i said in the small town of gauchan. Indiana doesn't seem like there'd be much there in indiana as far as mountains. There are not. I had never climbed a mountain or done. Any sort of high-altitude tracking. Before the first time i went to nepal back in nineteen ninety five and my first experience there was directing the mount everest base camp trail.

Sabrina Carpenter Addresses Speculation That ‘Skin’ Is About Olivia Rodrigo
"Last week. We had discussed the whole. Olivia rodrigue driver's license situation with sabrina. And joshua bassett excetera and since then. Sabrina actor released her own song called skin. Before i get into it. Let me just read you. The caption of her instagram. She posted tonight. Sabrina says thank you to everyone who has listened to skin especially those who have opened their minds to lyrically is trying to get across. I wasn't bothered by a few lines in a magnificent song and wrote a distraction. It i was at a tipping point in my life for countless reasons. So i was inspired to do what i usually do to cope right something that i wish i could have told myself in the past people can only get you if you give them the power to and a lot of people were trying to get to me. The song is in calling out one single person some addresses specific situation while other lines address. Plenty of other experiences. I've had this past year. It also shows that many things have actually gotten under my skin. And i'm still learning to knock have other people so much power over my feelings. I know a lot of you struggle with the same thing. I don't want this to become an endless cycle so please don't take this as an opportunity to send more hate anyone's loss of loved you all. Thanks for letting me grow anybody who listened to the song the main courses basically you can try to get under my skin while he's on mine so i mean listen if she's going to say that it wasn't a direct response fine but like. I really liked sabrina carpenter. I think they're both really talented. I just it was so clearly response. In my opinion the only reason it wasn't a response is because the original song had nothing to do with her. That right so confused. Yeah that's what i think. People were so confused about because of your song was really about her relationship with joshua and what went down there with the one line that mentioned sabrina. Basically saying like you're probably with that blonde girl who always made me doubt she so much older than me. she's everything i'm insecure about. That was it. Whereas sabrina song i think at least when you listen to it the first time felt like was directly about her directly addressing. Olivia song so. I don't know i. I really like them both. I was so confused when i first heard it because it felt so misplaced to me. It was like wait a second. Like if i'm being honest nothing as women you ever want other women to be insecure. But let's just cut the bullshit for a second is the guy you're dating has ex girlfriend and that ex-girlfriend publicly says that you make her insecure not that you want that prefers second that's kind of the best compliment you could ever get like. It was so confusing me. There were all these names of like olivia. Rigo call sabrina. Carpenter gorgeous says rita carpenter releases a distract. You

Voice AI in Europe Year-in-Review 2020: Voice Assistants and Privacy Issues
"One of things. I do Just for the audience's give you a little perspective before we go into this. I have some ideas of things that i think are big stories of the year that we should talk about. But i also ask guests to suggest some things and top of the list for nave. Was privacy concerns around voice technology. And i think interestingly enough this is a topic we didn't really talk much about by. Us guests when we did a yard review just just a few days ago but europe has different views on this in there has been. There's been a lot of movement at the regulatory level. You know clearly there's consumer privacy advocacy going on europe. Tell me a little bit about why you think that was one of the top in twenty twenty four voice. Yeah it's funny. You say that about your your you ask us. I mean privacy came as is a big story twenty. Nineteen ridi ryan's with all of those events with you know confident top story. I would say twenty nineteen. I mean everything a month. There was another expose in lower telling a story. So i guess you could argue that. It's trending nineteen story but privacy has become such a big part of the way we talk about voice technology. Certainly it's a box labs when it comes to kids that it's something that all of our clients are talking to us about all the time and i told you know it may well have come as and been a mainstream media topic in twenty nine teen but everybody is still talking about. Voice are bad privacy and in fact they're more educated parents because children being remote learning all year long this year with the pandemic you know that concern on the parents size but also in terms of our kinds of companies on the entertainment companies. I think when you look at the numbers it's really interesting to see the wild keeper more education than have more concerns about privacy and bread. You guys did a survey on this year. Yourselves of as trust issues with voice assistance at we can still see the numbers of people. Buying them are going up enough so to me that translates to adults thinking okay. I'll you consent to use my voice if you give me. Convenience in utility voice under bassett tradeoff that adults are willing to to go if they think about it at all rise but the very different construct when it comes to kids you know i mean when you think a bad kids invoice are really comfortable as parents of young kids to allow our kids voices to be used as data accumulation exercise where you know they can be profiled for at driven business models where the utility in the business model are combined. And i think a lot of people when they sound bites and think about that Browns there are concerns when it comes to car manufacturers toy manufacturers education companies. I say when it comes to privacy one of the reasons why is because for kids voices not a nice to have. It's not just a convenience. As technology has become more accurate. It's become a necessity for kids to use voice technology and more and more as becomes ubiquitous in classrooms. And at home kids voices will be used at the natural interface with lots and lots of technology. So we come to take you for granted thus kedah invoices stages collected unused posts consent in exactly the same way as as stages use storage and processed in the exact same ways. So for me. I guess the the stark paying about twenty twenty was we had all of this ad crying. Twenty nineteen very little changed in twenty twenty on regulation. We can't really expect regulation to turn it off on you know it's up and eighteen. Chapman best just not realistic but it is realistic for at the market to reflect some of those concerns and for companies like us who are privacy by design from the get-go who built from grand four privacy from since twenty thirteen to have it now as a competitive advantage. That privacy is something that's built into our system in amherst seeing a lot of people asking us bag privacy so you know. I think it's issue that will continue to be there and i think for kids. It's absolutely fundamental rise and and we'd like to hear more our compatriots in the voice space token

So that was angela bassett playing katherine jackson. Matriarch of the jackson family in the tv miniseries the jackson's and american dream. We talked briefly about how there was a time when society saw all of us three fifths and that was still around and earlier in your career more so than now. There was as pressure to outperform. Overperform be better than because you're black because you're a black woman. What did you think you got that message. Was it coming from family saying this to you from other black actors saying this to you. Were just from your own self awareness. You know what i think. It's it it comes not from one particular space you know it comes from it comes from family comes from seeing your mother get up early and go to work two jobs to support two kids it seeing your your father's Sister you know work at a university and go every summer and take a couple of courses to work on her masters to continue to do that until she gets her. Phd may take you know eight to ten years and you know rise to become the chairman of the department and the chairman of the school. You know acting chairman the school in interim chairman It comes from going to the theater and seeing Sisley tyson in sound or a diana.

You can't help but dream desire to be excellent. You see it all around you. You love seeing it all around you and you want to be you got to be a part of it. Or what's the live-in four thinking of this. Less than i did not being that were there any other. I guess perhaps quote unquote less than roles that you saw other black actors or actresses. Take the made you uneasy. No because You can't everyone's on the on particular journey. And i've always known that what worked for me may not work for everyone. What works for them may not work for me and between the two maybe recover the whole lay of the land. That's just the way that i've seen it. You know we grow our own time and place and space things that i may. You know. maybe. I wouldn't have played the process to them but i might play a day. Okay you know. Fill feeling a certain way but myself. Now today it's more it might be more. It's more open. it's more you know you my but or you may not have as they told my host but no we don't wanna see you. That way can get specific. Then on this idea of roles you wouldn't acre would take is one movie that's always spoken of and it spoken of not just for the person who took the role but the fact that you did not take it. I think you're talking about. Oh yeah you're talking about monster's ball to your sister who we love. You know halle berry. Did that work got that oscar. You turned it down. Then would the angela bassett of today. Turn it down now. I can't even reflect on that. I choose not to choose not to because that was you know that was such a a moment right then but we all make choices based on who we are in the moment and it was a choice that i made I came away. And i'm good with my choice. And she came away and she's good with hers and what's even more important is that we're good with one another there you go. And isn't the goal of all of this to allow black women to choose their path. And do what's good for them and if that was good for you and now is good for her. We get know. Listen to happy with the decisions that you make in this life you know and you make those decisions based on all the you know on the knowledge and awareness that you have at the time. We have more awareness. you know. Maybe you made different choices. But you gotta live in that moment and you'd be happy and that moment which whichever way to mop flops.

Scott at probably would have done. That sketch is more like you is more like it was more like street theater and you know and it was something different here. It is a sketch show. I've never been asked to do a sketch show before so that was intriguing to me and also it was well at this time. It was a show that was created by three incredible sisters. You know so. That's intriguing to me. So is various elements. That are drawing me. They're making me say yes. In terms of progress on some other stuff in some of the portrayals of women of people of color shows like sketch show. Do they give you hope or do you think there's still so much further to go. It gives me hope both in front of the camera and behind the camera opportunity. We've had sketches for decades and decades and like you said never having seen this but some of the funniest people i knew of black ladies right so it definitely gives me gives me hope you know it's interesting talking with race and representation with you right now. I'm wondering you know it's obviously going to be different for your children growing up black in this country than it was for you. Are you teaching them things different about race than the ways race was taught to you when you were a kid. I hope so part of its. I'm like how was. I taught race as a kid. It seemed more observation or and also we asked me wasn't a bus to the other side of town till seven. So you know. I was in my own insular community serve. I'm growing up on my in my caribbean island where everyone looks like me or my african country but yeah it's different for them because we live in this little hamlet and they are one of they could be one of nine kids in their seven eight in their class. So yeah you do have to have conversation but windy. You begin to have that In kindergarten where they come home and say they wouldn't let her play with them because they said she didn't look like the mother because of her skin and your five year old has to take up for his sister so even then they're getting the getting low messages and they're saying they're what they say they're white and black. They're not white their pitch black. Where brown whole law. But you don't want to just really smash their their vulnerability innocence. You have to bring it on slowly. And then when they get about fourteen and they think that mom. There's a stereotype your that's the race or they think that you're wrong about it about what goes on in the world. What do you say when that happened. Why didn't have to say too much because the world start changing. I mean the world are showing. Its face you know. Just turn on the news. And you have brianna and george floyd and while aubrey you it starts. Schilling is showing itself so It really is about. You know this is what it looks like but always maintaining having an insisting on your respect and humanity and that of others and we can. Hopefully we can This world we.

I'm here with my son to john or in several roles on ryan. Murphy's american horror story she needed to have powerful voodoo queen panetta you cease talk about some of those performances in a bit and the ark of angela bassett's career as a black woman in an industry not always friendly to black women but first we're gonna talk about her latest role. It's a role in which you don't actually see angela. Bassett at all. She plays a world renowned jazz saxophonist. Dorothy williams in seoul disney in pixar leaders animated film. So this movie. It's all about a character named joe gardner this middle school band teacher. Who really wants to be a professional jazz piano player. One day an old student of joe's who is a drummer for dorothy williams band. He calls joe and he says hey. We need some help north. Espn player is sick. Can you fill in this. Could be joe gardner's big break and the movie is all about whether or not joe gets that big break but this is also a pixar movie which means that soul is about bigger things as well like what makes a person a person what happens before and after life on earth and what's the purpose of life anyway. This film also occurs in multiple dimensions. All right here's a scene from the movie. Amir quest left thomson plays a drummer. He is introducing joe who was played by jamie foxx. And you'll hear dorothea as well voiced my angela. Bassett are this can you bel- my old middle school band teacher. Mr garden homey joe dorothea. I mean miss williams. It's a pleasure. Wow this is amazing. Joe's ray regardless son so we're down to middle school band teachers. now get on up here teach. We ain't got all day angela. Bassett thank you so much for your time here on fresh air this movie. So it was delightful. Oh thank you that moment of reveal when your character shows up on the screen leading the band playing phenomenal saxophone as a black woman in this film i was like animated or you know live action. I've never seen a black woman. Jazz saxophone is leading the band. It was nice to see. I mean like wow did you. Who did you channel. i thought so too. I enjoyed that as well. That's have not seen a black woman leading a band playing sax. But i have seen one back in the day of betty carter. You know leading her quartet of young musicians. You know whether it's chesnut and you know and that ilk and dorothy donnegan was another one of my favorites. That i had an opportunity see phenomenal piano player. I mean you listen to her and you would hear strains of classical music mix jazz mix with a little lullaby of your youth and it would just blow your mind so i remember how i felt listening to them. Or we're going to see betty. Carter and those young musicians looking up at her and she's leading them she's like she's getting them on point. No you've got to come up here. Come up here come up here. And they would play and play and they would strain their next looking hanging on every word on she integrated and intertwine those those two things a dramatic way. Which of course i would appreciate. But as the love of drama and of music that's who i sorta recalls and imagine in approaching dorothea. Is this kind of voice acting in an animated film like this one easier or harder for you then quote unquote regular acting where we see your body on a screen. Sometimes i think is harder really or i obsess about it being a little harder. Because that's like right now. Oh you have my voice and you. You don't have the other distractions You know the physicality facial expressions the others. You know it's just your voice but he has to paint. It has the give you the mood. You can't just look at my face and see that i'm sad. You must hear that longing and that paid those so that joy or whatever it may be in the voice in the voice. And i also guess that when you're recording stuff for this kind of animated film you're talking these lines and no one's on the other side of you like who do you talk to when you're recording this. It has never been the other actor straight. Yeah that's wanted to you know you live off of you. Respond to they give you something they give you something different and it elicits something else you know. It's never you know it's never. This hopefully is never the same. Hope you're responding honestly to what they're giving you but you generally just reader or the director And you know but and you just hope that they don't turn you loose until they've got what they absolutely came looking for. you know.

"I don't think that you shouldn't necessarily expect to see the relationship as you once knew it right now in this moment but there will be glimpses. And then those glimpses will become the fullness of vision and it will feel like you guys have one another again if it is like. You said the person that god has for you but Right now you need a support group. Do you need a system where you can say girl. This is tough. This is hard but then you get back in the game because you to sign up to do life with each other. That's my advice. But i want to see. What the delegations this Let's see how my comments are all out of order so beatrice says grief is so hard to come back from definitely very very challenging as freeman says. That's a whole word for me and my boyfriend became that person for me when my mother transitioned may. It's tough okay Sharon says that part about. Are you the one. I was standing next The one i want standing next to me when they lower my loved one in the ground. That's it okay. Kiki's critique says when you sign up for forever it's gonna take forever love him and be patient can he's just all you can do is be there for him and pray for him be that support that he needs an stay strong for him for shore totally agree It's hard but you've got what it takes us said that you know that guy puts you together. You've received so many confirmations so sometimes you gotta rest in the confirmation when you don't see that manifestation right in front of you okay Let's see mariah's. I just wanna take a moment to encourage this for looking out for your mental health seeking god and diligently standing beside your fiance. You're doing better than you think. Take it one step at a time. I applaud you. Gotta so proud of you of how you've been god is so proud. My comments are scoreless so forgive me but it says god is so proud of you for how you're choosing to steal put god first despite the very real pain. You and your fiancee have experience. Indeed and you know sometimes if that person if he's not ready to go to counselling. I think that you can say for me. I'm he's go to counseling. And you can be open about what you're experiencing in therapy so that he can see how you're coming to terms with the grief and the role that you're playing in grief. Grief can be so blinding that you think is just happening to you and you don't even realize how it's affecting your entire world so yeah wisdom from nas says this is everything to me right now. My boyfriend up almost seven years has been here since i've lost two family members back to back. He didn't have to stay but he chose to. 'cause you just you you grief just changes you man and when it changes you to have someone who sticks with you when you come out on. The other side is beautiful. Of course we don't want you to do that at your at the risk of your own mental health. That's why i think is so important that you're seeking better help and that you put the mayor john pause right because you wanna see how you come out on the other side of this. You guys are in a commitment but you haven't crossed the aisle yet and this is a prime opportunity to determine. Can we really do life with each other. My husband's father died when we were still dating. And we walk through that journey together and you know of course. We aren't necessarily thinking about mayors. Oh this is the message. Listen to when winter becomes home preached that message the sunday. After my husband's father passed away. We were dating at the time. Like i said and I just want you to healthily. That will encourage you in some way but sometimes winter honey cold seasons become home. But there's a promise even in those moments okay next question then. I'm then i'm finished. Okay at advice question has there. I don't know if this question will reach you or the podcast. But i do believe it is a very important question. Maybe lengthy so bear with me l. o. Emma overall question is how do we as christians. No god's view on abortions knowing god and knowing that every life is purposeful and that kind of answers my question. But then i started thinking and i get confused all over again. I did have an abortion a few years ago. That drastically changed my life. I felt deep sorrow. Shame in gil. These feelings brought me to god. And i begin a relationship with him and took me so long to heal from that but i did. Well i think last year. I got pregnant again but i always told myself i would never do what i did again so i now have a beautiful one year old son but i often feel guilt because his father did not want me to have him. He wanted me to get another abortion. But it wasn't an option for me. I love my son. And i know he's here for a reason. What are your views on this. It's my body. I feel like. I made a decision based on my beliefs but then i'm often reminded of a decision that i made for someone else. It's just so hard. And honestly i don't know how to feel helps this. Thank you very very much at this reaches you and i can get your perspective as a woman of god so this is such a layered questions. I'm going to try and break it down. And then i'm going to move it over to the delegation. I think that when we start thinking about just like god's intention and we take it back to the garden. Like god's intention was never for to kill somebody. Cain killing abel like that was never god's for us to have these types of what have now become you know i don't even want to say that have very much become norms and our society. That wasn't god's intention to cancer wasn't in god's intention abortion. One of god's intention like we were supposed to live in harmony with one another and then of course we know what eve did in the garden and how she offered it to adam and the course of humanity was shifted and so. I don't necessarily think that this is about what are gods views. Because i think if we go back to that moment then we see like hey was in guys view for for me to get divorced. That wasn't a part of god's original intention for humanity and yet we live in this world where so many of these things have become our norm and we have a responsibility to take the broken pieces of what's left with humanity and try to apply them in such a way. That god's grace can piece it back together having said that. I think that you've made a decision based on your conviction when you got pregnant again that i'm not gonna do that again. You had a conviction about them and that conviction led you to caring.

"When you'd sixty years from now you wanna fit into your clothes. There are many reasons you might want to practice self care and every person is different. Okay once again. I downloaded the neum ebb when i first started dissolving to myself. I'm not gonna be able to do it by myself. I need support. What i love about neum. Is they give you coach. There's a support system of people who try to come together and help you to obtain your goals. And they don't beat you up when you eat too much or you get off the you fall off the wagon. They don't make it like a big old thing. They inspire you to get back on the road so that you can get to the place of what you have in mind. Those goals okay. So we are strapped for time right now noon just actually to commit ten minutes a day for yourself a ten minutes of self care your human like i said if you go off track. There's no shaming just tips to help you get back on track if you are like me and you are ready to dissolve but you need a little bit of support okay.

Disappointed like she would like to be working remotely. She now have to put up with my shenanigans. No for real neum okay. So advice listen. We have the advice questions of all of is questions today. Okay hold on. Let me sing Okay so hold on. 'cause i to me. She's a member of t. p. h. la and. i told her we got her. Okay oh at any glasses is computer. I can't see nothin' but the holy ghost and sometimes all you need to see is the wind of got the wind of god. We'll edit that out. I'm better than that. I didn't do that okay. Hi sarah i listened to the podcast all of the time and i'm also a member of the potter's house one. La thank you so much for all the work you put in. You've literally help. Change my life in so many ways today and some advice. Because i'm in this season that i've never been in before at a loss mafia n- say since january of this year lost his mom to cancer about six weeks ago. This loss has also been tough for me as well. Since i was also close to his mom we were planning on getting married in twenty twenty one however lately things have been a struggle my fiance and i are both grieving but he is really struggling with the laws. I'm trying to be there for him as much as i can while still taking care of my own mental health. I'm seeing it therapist through better help. Hey and i've been praying and seeking god. My fiance is devastated with the loss and doesn't really connect with me spiritually like he used to. He's also less motivated to seek god on his own or be there for me and our relationship sometimes. He said he was open to therapy as the well. I know that grief is a process that takes time and everyone grieves differently. We love each other and we enjoy our relationship. God led us to each other and has been at the forefront of our relationship. I know that god wants us to be married because he has confirmed it many times. I miss reading the word with him and having spiritual talks but i also know he's going through a lot right now. How can i be there for him during this time. How can we continue to pursue a solid foundation and our engagement so that we can be prepared for marriage. How can i still connect with him. Spiritually without being insensitive to. What's go to what he's going through. And sometimes i just don't know what to say. I just keep praying if you in the delegation could give some advice our greatly appreciated. Thank you okay. So there's a lot of layers here one. I can only imagine what you're going through you know as your homegirl. From afar your pastor homegirl from afar. I just want you to know that. I know that's tough When my husband lost his father though isn't as close to his father as it appears that you are with your significant other's mother who was passed away. I can really remember how tinder that time was in our relationship. How helpless i fell in many ways. Because i really wanted to fix it right. I wanted to do something that made him feel better and yet i also knew that there was nothing i could do at all and i think that one of the difficult parts of grief. Is that a part of your husband. In has transitioned with his mother. The memories the dynamic of their relationship like there's a part of him who was a son to that woman who is now he still her son right but he's her son with her in heaven and he's never had to walk that out before you guys are engaged and so you're talking about marriage which means these are the types of thresholds at we cross over in marriage all of the time. My father said when i was dating today he told me you're choosing the person who you want to be standing beside you when you put me in the ground. Wow doesn't that change the way we look at some of these people like you're good for dinner your good for movies but do i want you to be the person who standing beside me when i have to say goodbye forever to my parents seems like that's what he chose you to do that. When he proposed he said that. When i go through the downs of life you are who i want to be by my side when i lose myself because of the grief when i lose myself because if the pain you are who i want to be on my side when we get a bad report from the doctor when we have to move to another city you are the person who i want to be by my side. What we're signing up for is to do life with one another. And i think that this feels like probably the real life has ever been for the two of you and i just want you to know that as you sign up for the lifelong commitment of marriage that that's what you're signing up for is to have weeks maybe at a time when your husband is so deep in his grief that you're not sure if you're going to see the person who he wants was but also trusting that if god brought you together that he's gonna return to you in a version that is perhaps more wise more focused more intentional more mature than perhaps he was before. But that core connection that brought you together we'll remain intact right now he can't be your fiance as you knew him because he doesn't know who he is right now and i think through love engraved patients that you walk this thing out together. The beautiful thing is you. Don't have to worry about the wedding right now. you can stay in position ads. If you say and the only thing you have to focus on right now is him healing and becoming better. You don't have to plan the wedding and he'll from grief at the same time during the course of that. You may say to yourself. Hey you not sure that you're coming back. I'm not sure that you're in a space where we can even move forward with marriage until you really get the help and support that you need but if i were you our just realize that because we're signing up to be married that this is what i signed up for people lose spouses. People get cancer. People lose children like real life. Be going down in the union of marriage and it's been six weeks and she passed. I still so very fresh. I don't think that you shouldn't necessarily expect to see the relationship as you once knew it right now in this moment but there will be glimpses. And then those.

I'm to be honest here for taking a break because since has been working since we have been out here doing homework you know what i mean like. We was just doing homework and she was working. And i love that. She's giving ourselves the time that she needs to really just recalibrate to rest. She says specifically like she's giving herself permission to joy. And i love that quote a really resonated in my mind because feel like if we aren't intentional about giving ourselves permission to experience joy then we may not experience joy at all. That's kinda heavy to think to yourself. If adult give myself permission to focus on my own joy than i may not experience joy at all. Because i'm so focused on building so focused on growing so focused on being there for other people that i may have to intentionally give myself permission to focus on my joy so i love that with as much influence as much work as many accomplishments as she had that the one thing that she wants to accomplish right now in this season is to focus on her own joy and i think that we could all learn a little bit from that so tiffany says absolutely rest and pulling away as always imperative on the journey.

And we always talk about parents. We don't necessarily talk about like public sphere. In public sphere includes the job that you are whatever let job is. I don't know you feel like you didn't make a decision like that's what you're saying. You're saying that you you're in the same situation as me where it's like you're going to read. So you might as well just stay what's up 'cause people know what's up, you know, someone in college didn't work. How'd that go? Yeah. This is a woman you try to Romans was at the one time you try to. Yes. The one-time tragic. What happened? I'll just wasn't attracted to our. Sure. Yeah. Yes. Which is weird because I could probably find a woman would be attracted to this. Of course, her just specifically was not. Well, yeah. I mean, I don't think that's weird at. I remember ending things with are not over idiot. Like, it wasn't worth had come out at that point. I remember ending things with her because we watch the movie Zoolander. Okay. Yes. And. Shoot love once. And she was like that was really dumb. I was like. I think you're really not attracted to you. Visit. Because you have to do lender in order for me track to physically. What you just said is really interesting. I think that's another. I I would believe there's definitely a woman that you could be attracted to 'em. And I know that there are era. Angela bassett. I'll yeah. Yeah. I mean, as lesbian I also into those people of no, I I also know there's men that I would be attracted to I think there's a like a miss. Conception even for folks who fully identify as gay like like, I don't I don't consider myself by but. There's enough human beings in the world. I don't either racing that. But there's enough human beings in the World War. I assume somebody on every vector in every demographic that I'd be attracted to, but that doesn't I think that's a different thing. Or when what we're talking about is like, okay. So you could be attracted to someone. But who are you going to ultimately be the most comfortable with to create like a true sense of family in a long term partnership? No, more it, maybe you didn't wanna partnership, but like a who could you trust the most who do you want to show your body to the most like, I think we we also talk about like gayness in this way. Were we wanna throw up looking at the other? At the type of person were not most attracted to and that I think for straight people can be a way of using their feelings about using homophobia for violence like I mean, it's like for straight people then like his we're not giving the message like ham super gay. But like, I also think people are beautiful, and I think when where people don't say that allow people we allow for straight pool to be like, oh, I would die. If I was if I had there was a man, I was attracted to like, I think that that thing for straight people is really strong, and I would love to erase that. So I will openly say men are beautiful. I like male bodies I like to look at those muscles gorgeous. Don't want date that doesn't mean that. I that. I hate it. Of course. That's not an of course. That's what's weird. Yes. Of course to us of you mean like minded people who agree. Yeah. Okay. So you tried to a woman, and it didn't go great. And then what happened next in your life? Outed outed. Yes. And did it feel that was just contained to the theater department was like everybody like you woke up next morning. And it was a love the department. Got gus. No. So real social media yet that right? It was even this was. Facebook just been invented. Sure. Yeah. So. Yes. So then it was a slow gradual coming out. For the next few months, but I felt like by sophomore year.
