My parents were talking about how there had been some issues with white supremacists in the military (cause they’re both in the army) and I wanted to interject with something that had been in my head for awhile so I started saying “I think the whole "superior race” thing is so stupid because, even if you look at it from a scientific viewpoint, WE are the weakest race!“ At this point I had started walking around cause that’s what I always do when I’m ranting "I mean, if a white person procreates with a nonwhite person, then that kid is gonna look way more like the nonwhite person! Genetically speaking, we are the-!”
And then I slipped and fell.
Now, let me tell you, this was no ordinary stumble and fall. It. Was. Glorious.
It was like something out of a cartoon. I took one step and suddenly both of my feet were out from under me. My right foot made a perfect arc in the air before all 110 pounds of me came crashing down right on my hip. In the hilarity of the moment, I felt no pain.
And without missing a beat, I sat up and shouted “I REST MY CASE!”
In between fits of laughter, my mom managed to choke out “point taken!”
re: that social media post - I will never forget the time the entire marketing team kept telling the head of the company “don’t do this, it’s a terrible idea, people are just going to get mad” and she was like “no, do it anyway”
surprise surprise, people got mad and the only result was one of the folks on the team having to field a whole bunch of people yelling at her online the entire day
After a while, you stop worrying about what people think of you. You realize that the most important thing is how you feel about yourself and other people’s opinions begin to fade from the back of your mind. It’s not easy, and it takes a while, but once it happens, it’s liberating.
i might not always study, i don’t always do my homework, i procrastinate a lot, i leave things to the last minute, i own like two pencils, my notes are written with a sloppy handwriting and i don’t always get good grades.
there is a lot i don’t do or get, still i’m filled with joy. please don’t be so hard on yourself.
“It’s probably under the moonlight that we see that black boys can be blue, can be sad and sullen and intimate,” he said. “It’s under starlight that we see them differently, or that we get the chance to.”
“Because we rarely see ourselves in those hues or under that gauze. We see ourselves in the harsh police light or the amber of street lights, but what is it when the reflection of the sun in the moon is sitting on these bodies. What beauty can we see?”
Hey so this is a really long shot but my cat is lost. I depend on her for so much. She’s the living embodiment of my fight for mental stability, I adopted her exactly a year after I was released from the hospital after threatening suicide. She means so much to me and she’s lost because my dad let her out of the house when she was annoying him. I live in Plymouth Minnesota. It’s cold as fuck here and it’s supposed to snow tonight. Please try to get the word around.
exo legitimately transcends human expectation with their accomplishments like can you imagine how GOOD they must feel?? how proud they are?? no one will be able to predict what they do next because they keep pushing what should be a glass ceiling higher and higher…theyre going to be written down in history and cemented in the asian music industry and literally nothing anyone says or does can take away the magnitude of their career thus far, everything they touch turns to gold im here for kings
