To people that I would usually talk to on or off tumblr, my apologizes but I have been extremely busy this past week seeing as it is Christmas! I didn't mean to cut you off unexpectedly but you have to understand that sometimes I need time to myself. I just needed some breathing room and I am not upset with anyone. Just clearing up some misunderstanding. :) Happy Holidays!
serious note.....i need some support

Thursday was a good day. I had a job interview at Barnes and Noble my family was fine, and there were no problems. Friday….my stepfather, who has alcoholic tendencies has one again put himself in the bed for the day. We just think its a hangover, but my mother tells me he has literally no memory of the last 9 days and doesn’t even remember dropping me off and pretty much happily obsessing over the fact that I will be having a job interview the previous day. He is shaking uncontrollably, and his face keeps swelling. 
This has dampened my mood quite a bit considering this is the man who has supported me and has been a father figure where my real dad hasn’t. He isn’t perfect….damn not even close…but he has been there through thick and thin since I was 7. Words of encouragement would be nice….we are taking him to the hospital and hopefully it will just be alcohol poisoning…nothing more…he is in fact a cancer survivor.Guys I post a lot of funny things and sometimes sexy things, but I’m a person…and I don’t ask for much. I just need some understanding words so I don’t overreact.

Jewell's view on politics right now.

Personally , i hate the fuck out of politics . America is a backwards ass country. As an American, i try to be happy about my freedoms. As a young black woman, i try to get ahead. As a woman, i try to succeed and make sure my future children no matter what gender they identify as, will live in a country where THEIR CHOICES MATTER. Not some stuffy man in a suit who has held political office for years. Noone knows the horror today’s youth will undergo in the years to come. Texas is just the beginning and as a girl raised on the east coast in Virginia, it’s horrifying to see that just a few states away, they are saying women no longer can have sexual freedoms. I live in a commonwealth, a very strict one at that. Politics have now become biological and up close and personal. It’s not just some fucked up shit you hear on tv and go about your day. It’s slowly approaching everyone’s doorstep one state at a time. First the gay community was in the spotlight, and now women are front and center once again. History is coming full circle in the most devastating ways possible. I stand for my race, my gender,and my identity in society. I support women’s rights and any right that gives people personal freedoms. Privacy has gone out the window and shit has gotten real. As a parent of the future generation, I will stand for what is right. I might not be crazy about it all but I’m listening and i do what I can. Life is not a game and controlling someone else’s is going to bring anarchy in a higher form; the wrath of many women without voices who just want a choice.
