i'm so angry i made a sign

If there’s one piece of advice I can give to a mathblr, or any studyblr really, it would be

 it’s okay to make a mess

I’ve had this blog for a while now and I can say at the beginning I was really excited about getting my mildliners and washi tape and being part of something. But as time went on I realised I didn’t exactly have time to make things look nice. 

And for me, the process of doing mathematics never looks nice. I cross out. My writing is terrible once I find a path to take so I don’t forget my idea. 

But really, that process is beautiful. I can look back at old workings and laugh at the time I made a sign error and got to angry that I scribbled over everything only to realise there was no sign error. Smile at that one question that look like 10 sides of paper because I couldn’t figure it out right away. 

Sure, it’s important to make your work readable. You need to know what’s actually going on in it. 

A bit of mess never hurt anyone.

Rant about compatibility

Okay tbh compatibility is 100% bullshit like I’m a cancer with basically only water in my chart, I have almost no fire at my chart at all. And do you know what my best friends are Sagittarius and Aries! And the sign that I’m most attracted to? Aquarius!
I get along super well with those signs, no problems at all. Other signs that I love are libra and Gemini, that I also shouldn’t get along with.
And you know the signs that I always have problems with? Capricorn, virgo and cancer, signs that “compatibility speaking” should be my best friends!
There are so many things in you chart that determinate your personality, your sun sign is so insignificant when you see the rest and not only that but you can be 100% water and be in love with someone who’s 100% air.
Love is love, it doesn’t matter if your partner and you are opposites, you love them and when it comes to love it just happens! Someone who is “compatible” with you may have 0 chemistry with you while someone who is “incompatible” with you may be the love of your life!
Also astrology is believing in destiny and if you believe in that than you also believe in soul mates and stuff like that.
Oh and when those astrology blogs use the word “compatible” as someone who is similar to you but then again why the fuck would you want to date someone who is similar to you??????
Isn’t relationships about learning and growing as a person? ???
Oh and if those astrology blogs tell you to not even date someone bc you are not traditionally compatible burn their house down bc how can someone trivialize love this way? Love is the most import thing and the world and you shouldn’t disrespect it like that!!!!!
I personally believe every sign can be compatible because we can all learn things from other signs, we can learn it even from our own! Of course there is signs that you can get along better but that doesn’t mean a relationship between “incompatible” signs can’t work!

my experience with the signs as an aries
  • aries: you aren't nearly as angry and aggressive as you're made out to be in astrology posts. you guys are pretty naïve and cute and some of you are really good at sports and i'm jealous
  • taurus: you guys make great friends imo. you're not as selfish and lazy as people say. some of you are incredibly smart like wow how are you so smart
  • gemini: in my experience you guys are either really great or really horrible. there is no in between. you guys are usually really funny and i have never met a gemini who's two-faced like where did that stereotype come from
  • cancer: y'all are a lil too wishy washy for me but you're my go-to peeps when i need a shoulder to cry on. a lot of you are really sassy and i love it
  • leo: a lot of my fave people are leos you guys are hilarious and so generous and just. awesome. you deserve all the love and attention in the world
  • virgo: i don't know many virgos tbh. y'all seem chill but your need for order bugs me sometimes bc i'm more of a go with the flow kinda person. you do you tho
  • libra: libras are awesome! you guys are so sweet and quirky and your peaceful approach to things is refreshing.
  • scorpio: my partners in crime. you guys are lowkey evil but in a cool way. you're the best at getting revenge and your sense of humor is the best
  • sagittarius: i really wish i knew more sags bc you're so awesome!! you're so fun to be around and you just give off good vibes ya know
  • capricorn: why do people think caps are boring??? you guys are hilarious!! ngl y'all get on my nerves sometimes and some of you just need to lighten up but hey. at least ur funny
  • aquarius: i've never met an aquarius that i didn't like. you guys are really funny and i love how you're not afraid to be different. best ppl to talk to if you want to have an interesting conversation
  • pisces: you're great in theory, but most pisces i know irl are little twats (sorry). i admire your creativity and it's fun to imagine scenarios with you

Sorry for this rant but I go to an HBCU and there was a sign that said "TRANS LIVES MATTER" in the lobby of our main building where visitors & tours come first and/or special meetings or panels are held, and it made me so angry and sad because the fact that a BLACK LESBIAN couple and their BLACK son were literally JUST killed by a WHITE man who "feels" like a woman, and they so boldly misuse a BLACK slogan for this white fuckery at a historically black college no less, I'm fucking tired.

I’m tired of it all too anon. :/ This bullshit has got to stop, tired of them getting away with lesbophobia and perpetuating violence against women for the sake of it, and SICK of how they always try to use black women as chess pieces in their fake advocacy when they don’t give a fuck, claim we **oppress** them and say nothing when one of their own harboring the same hatred of lesbians as they do murdered a black lesbian and her son.
