Sorry this is late, peep holes, I just got Chelsea’s message:
Cover my AI today? Arrested at the mall. Some lady was telling a kid Santa’s real. Had to cut a bitch. Who handles Skepchick bail when Rebecca is in Australia?
Oh…. Chelsea… you’re such a hardcore skeptic. Attorneys are on their way.
2010 has been a pretty amazing year for me. I’ve done more than I ever imagined… from making more people to accidentally founding a nonprofit to running a 5k… no, running THREE 5ks in a week and a half only after climbing Willis Tower. I can safely look back on this year and be proud of what I did with it.
But I only was able to do this because of being a Skepchick. Interacting with these amazing ladies every day, you quickly realize you have a choice: do awesome or get the fuck out of the way. For my first two years here, I think I mostly stayed out of the way. But eventually, they forced me to get in the way… and cool shit happened. And I love them for helping me make things happen and inspiring me to do things I was otherwise afraid to do and pushing me… because I’m a lazy ass mofo.
Hug Me was my pipe dream passion project, and thanks to the skepchicks, it’s a real thing! It’s actually happening! We’re actually doing work to help people understand why vaccines are important. It’s kind of great, yeah?
Who inspires you? Do you have a passion project? Do you have a dream project that you need inspiration to launch?
All the Skepchick lovers in the house say HEY-O!
