guates

I generally dislike focusing on the negative comments but literally wdym @dauntlesschanel “Guat no cal isn’t asian” ??? Idk if you were trolling me or anything but well… Cal is literally a fictional character, people can picture him as any ethnicity they want to, and as far as I know it’s never mentioned in the books that that he isn’t. There’s PLENTY non-asian fancasts out there if that’s what you want. Thank you for missing the entire point of why I made the edit. Have a nice day.

«CAZADOR DE INSTANTES»
De repente, en medio de un parpadeo y un suspiro, entre la calidez de un amanecer y un despertar llegaste tú cual musa a encontrarte con mis miedos y mi caos, a darle luz a mi vieja y oscura alma, y ha darme un poco de humanidad.
Y yo, al verte, siempre quedo inerte, completamente invadido de ti, admirando como cada instante colisiona con tu piel y suspirando tras cada dulce mirada que me das; y siempre, siempre quedo absorto al observarte, al ver como el viento y la luz bailan contigo al compás del pasar del tiempo, viendo como todo cobra vida y deja de existir cuando estas ahí, frente a mi.
Es por eso que me he convertido en un cazador de instantes, en un coleccionista de momentos, en un recolector de imágenes; pues es así como puedo llenar mi mundo e inundar mi alma contigo, es la forma en que le grito a cada ser en este planeta lo feliz y agradecido que estoy por tenerte. Pues cuando tú llegaste, en medio de un parpadeo y suspiro, abriste mis ojos a un mundo nuevo y completamente desconocido, un mundo que lleva tu nombre y existe gracias ti.

Jeaneth Ixcoy’s youngest son helped her sell backpacks and colored pencils before his first day at school. Manuel, 12 years old, is about to begin 5th grade. He works with his mother in the morning and studies in the afternoon; his mother waits for him and they walk home together. She is a single mother and sustains her family by selling different products. She asks her children forgiveness “because they have had to leave their innocence behind so quickly.” She wants Manuel to go to school “because with studies he can have a job.” For this, she has bought him new shirts.

I just have a lot of feelings about Oscar Isaac ok?

I watched Star Wars: The Force Awakens yesterday and found out that the actor Oscar Isaac was born in Guatemala and I just started crying because that gives me so much hope (perhaps even a new hope). My mom’s side of the family comes from Guatemala and I consider myself Guatemalan so to see someone from Guate with his level of success (STAR WARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!) it just gives me so much hope and I wish I could get in contact with him because even though I don’t know him I feel a sort of kinship with him even though it might be a little weird that I do, I just do.
