sometimes i’ll just be peacefully living my life and doing regular life stuff, but then i’ll think about clexa and inhale so deeply and sharp that for a few seconds, I literally can’t breathe because “it’s happening. this is how straight people feel all the time. ”
Nissi I wish you could follow me everywhere and give me a shout when I'm being problematic! I try hard to unlearn the prejudices I've grown up with but I hate that that there are things I haven't realised yet, and you're so good at explaining things!
Yea. Except that even though I’m black, it doesn’t mean I live to help white people out with stuff like this. I’m a person. In law school. With a job. And a family. So the fact that you can even imagine me in this way…
It’s not a compliment. I hope you know that. That you could have said you appreciated my thoughts and perspectives, as a real live human person, without essentially turning me into your helper negro
I apologize for not being around very much. But I’m still busy working on… well, everything. I’m finally piecing my life together into something I want it to be, and it’s been exhausting and exhilarating all at once.
Things my depression and anxiety have kept me from doing the past few years:
Things I have been able to do in the past few months:
So, yeah, I’m proud. I’m super proud. I think I’ve earned that. And I want to thank everyone who’s supported me and been my friend in the past year or so I’ve had this blog. You’ve helped me get back into writing. You’ve helped me survive a lot of hard days. I really appreciate it. I really love you.
And now that the basics are getting into order, I’m finding the motivation to work on all these bigger projects I’ve been meaning to work on. And while I don’t what to spoile those, I want to give a little sneak peak:
Something involving music
Something involving books (coming very soon!)
Something involving publication (which, for those I contacted, has been postponed another few months due to my recovery time but is still definitely on the way)
So basically I just wanted to say thank you, and I hope you’re as excited for the future as I am. I think it’s going to be pretty great, and there are a lot of you that I hope will be a part of it. Thank you.
Maya Hart. What’s that?
She’s a person I believe in. She never had very much of anything. Maybe that’s why she looks at everything the right way. I’d give Maya Hart a lot of money and trust her to do whatever she wants with it. Because one day she will be a force to reckon with. I think you should invest in her right now.
