Off the back of what I posted last night about language and ideology I want to do a thread (probably fairly long) about language and history in Scotland because it's near and dear to my heart and also it informs a lot of today's politics here even if people don't realise it. Also I see well-meaning people reproducing bad history related to this all the time

Hi, I'm Andrew, I'm 30 years old and a Gael. I'm a cis man, I live in Glasgow and I'm depressed and anxious like everyone else I know. I'm a Marxist and have strong beliefs on the matter but try not to be sectarian for all the good it does me. I wrote one novel a while back and want to write more when I can manage to do anything. I'm very into history (esp early medieval and 19th&20th C) and languages and books and video games. Glad to be here!

I have been awake since 4am (it's almost 7 now) because Jess decided to visit us in bed about 6 times so far and I've now just given up on sleep

We made Jess a toy out of a branch, some string, and bits of fabric, and she likes it

it was good! Immediate reaction is that it's not as tight as Get Out, thematically and all, but it's more ambitious and I enjoyed like 90% of it. good scares and stuff

in the cinema to see Us, and I'm excited
