My research deals with the intergenerational transmission of trauma through the holocaust in the Jewish culture and how it relates to Jewish identity It is funny, people always say that you chose research on something that we have a connection too, in a more spiritual sense i think perhaps we do research on something that we need closure or an explanation for. Regardless, my research has given me the chance to reflect not only on my culture/religion but also on how the history of my family has affected me a person. As many American Jews, my genology has been fragmented and vauge, I know that I am from Russia and romania and Hungarian. Yet, where my ancestors lived, what they did, who they maried and if they moved to America are all unknown. I am in part an orphan to the my past, disjointed by the shadows of evil and unknown. Through this academic journey, I have learned or more so confirms that five of the nine children of my father’s great grandparents were killed while in Russia as a result of them being Jewish. although it has always been assumed that the ancestors of my parents who did not immigrate were all killed, learning that they were actually murdered has a very different feeling. I guess I was not expecting it, but it feels almost like heaviness in my heart. Which seems strange to have such an emotional reaction towards these almost strangers whose names are unknown, pictures and faces unseen and stories untold. I guess it is just further showing or reaffirming that the trauma is still there. Regardless, I am excited for the rest of research and am excited for the rest of this journey both academically and personally.

Today was pretty good day. Finished my ess poster (one of my professors said she was proud) class was canceled for tomorrow, we had elections for a full eboard..finally, the sga approved our bill for the money (finally again). Two of my residents gounded a club on campus for the empowerment of minority women, ehivh I am so beyond proud of. I go to their meetings and help as I can, but I really just enjoy watching them develope this org as fredhmen, I cant wsit to see whst they do by the time theh are upperclassmen. Anywayd, they made me an honorary black person. Or at least the nin white person haha. It made me proud lol. Also during the meeting the girls were discussing hbc’s and how they wanted to transfer and I like umm no you not leaving until I graduate one of the older girls was like ohhh… momma said no. Lol it was sweet. Im so glad I am able to help them because they have helped me in so many ways its the least I can do. Ugh im so tired I hope this made sense, I love my job, I love my club, I love my school. So thankful <3
Anonymous asked: Hi Emma, I am hearing and teaching myself ASL, I have a hard time with the ASL concept, how to form sentences. Learning the words isn't so much the hard part (remembering them all, maybe, but it's only been a few weeks), but I have a hard time taking them from words to sentences without it being English.. Any suggestions? Thank You!!
The trick is to usually look at what you’re talking about.
- Usually, the subject of an English sentence is the “topic” of an ASL sentence.
- Time (meaning any signs that tell you when it is that you’re talking about) goes at the beginning.
- Question words appear at the end.
- In sentences, it’s usually the verbs that end the sentences.
Those are the basic rules. Other than that, it’s just practice. And remember- there are several different ways for just about everything to be said. There’s really no one answer.
So, “I’m going to the store” becomes STORE, ME GO-TO.
"I have to finish homework tomorrow" becomes TOMORROW, HOME+WORK ME FINISH MUST.
Does this help?
omg ! thank you ! No I can attempt *keyword* to gloss correctly…. and sign haha. But right now I have no one to sign with hence the poor glossing attempts.
Ugh omg I want this
Idk what this means but ok
not going to lie feel like a bit of a failure. even typing this seems a little silly. Just this week I was invited to apply to be a speaker for the commencement ceremony, was invited to have dinner with the president of the university and sent in an abstract. Although these things are super awesome, they are still here on campus. I have friends who are going to interviews for doctorate programs, I have other friends who have internships in the city,my cousin was just flown from Canada to San Francisco to fucking interview and she is doing HR (she is a senior in a University in Canada) I don’t want to compare myself to any of these examples because each of these people have worked so extremely hard and I am so happy and proud of their success. It just sucks. I just need to get my shit together, i have job opportunities it’s just that I don’t know what I want to do. I don’t want to just get out of college and have a full time job. I want a leap year to travel or do the volunteer programs, work in a theatre and just have some space and some freedom to really experience things in the world. I really want to do this fellowship program that works with students in underprivileged areas they provide housing and $600 a month it is a jewish org. I really want to do this in Detroit. I have no fucking idea why and I know that my mother will never allow me to do it. I don’t know why i want to go there so badly. I literally just had to look up where it is on the map. I know how important it is to get a job but I have worked so fucking hard I want to enjoy something and just experience things. Get a fucking license or something.. I also don’t want to leave my room. If i could take this view of the city i would. I love this building, always have and always will. <3
[P]rivatization is a neoliberal and imperialist plan. Health can’t be privatized because it is a fundamental human right, nor can education, water, electricity and other public services. They can’t be surrendered to private capital that denies the people from their rights.
There was a debate on my Facebook newsfeed and someone shared this Buzzfeed article: [trigger warning: liberalism] “The 17 Most Outrageous Quotes From Hugo Chavez”. Apparently this is one of the quotes, which Buzzfeed considered “outrageous”.
