DEDICATED TO ANYA FORD
And by that, I mean her picture. What was wrong with the two of us then? I feel like/I know I wanted you, but just didn’t want to try again. Or maybe I was trying everyday. It must’ve been both. Exploring this feeling is killing me. It feels like I’m reaching into my own heart when I’d rather be doing the dishes. I wish I could wash away the sentimate. I almost wanted to call this piece “emotion is for pussies” but I’m just trying not to focus on it. Ugh. Almost feel like welling up. Shut up! Damn feelings. Don’t give a fuck/say what you wanna say. I think you should really think about why you’ve been so down lately. I think you’ve been messing up. Joyriding isn’t cool. Feel like I was being used on that date. But it’s okay cause I’ve treated you like shit before and now I’m just paying for it. Can I borrow a feeling? The day the twinkies died. God I used to be so thin then. Lovers time capsule. Take me Back. Take me back to when it was just us vs. the entire world. And all we had for weapons was a bottle of whiskey. Were you living with Lauren then? Did you even want me at all? Am I just blowing this all out of proportion? The moment in time is gone/alive forever - famous only to me. Ha. How clever. Swinging Doors of Pain. Always writing on things. You should txt Anya. Have I told her about this before? I’m such a one-trick-pony/when you burry the past do you really move on? Hand cramp. Rest. Resting Gravity. Is this nothing or very personal? It’s nothing now but It brings back a lot of feelings I had for Anya. It also brings back a lot of unrest cause I know how angry I was then. So it’s finding old anger? Not Exactly. See, it’s a wonderful life tells us that if anything in the past was different then whole towns are at stake. While I’m not angry that I didn’t get with Anya that time I’m also happy I didn’t cause things wouldn’t have turned out as well as they did. Her boobs were great though. Yeah, but all boobs are great. True. Is that the name of this? No. The whole piece is untrue though. I see where you’re coming from. Cause you wrote on yours/Yeah/So what do you think it means to you?/Be as honest as you can. Pretty straight forward. Honesty is pretty big with you? It’s a huge concept/That I’m still figuring out. Developing Honesty. I wanna throw my shoe at this thing for making me feel this way. What are you trying to explore with this video. Yourself? Ourself. Resting our gravity/Resting Us/Our Gravity/O(ur) G(ravity)/The Me in Us/The You in Me/Conjoined
What Do You Guys Think About the Trayvon Martin Case?
The Trayvon Martin case has been making headlines for the past few weeks regarding the racist manner in which the young teen was slain and killed. We took it to our respective campuses to ask our fellow classmates and students of their opinions on the case, and how we can mend these instances of racial injustice. ______________________________________________________________________________________

“History always repeats itself. The Trayvon Martin case is the 2012 version of the 1955 Emmett Till case. And if you don’t know who Emmett Till is, google is always there for you to learn something worthwhile. Its stunning how stuff like this can happen again, as if we don’t learn from our mistakes.”
