J, T, V please!

J. Are you insecure? What about? Lordy, so much. I’m so insecure, it’s the worst. my tarot readings, my ability to find a job, my degrees, my body, my hair (on a bad day. I’m usually a big fan of my hair), if my friends really like me…

I’m working on it. Weirdly, working this baking job helps (!!!), because I’m actually pretty good at it. My boss and I laughed about the first set of crusts I made - they looked terrible because they were too dry, though they still tasted fine. Now I’ve become the person who makes the majority of the crusts and pastry we sell? Pretty cool.

T. Already did.

V. 3 big dreams: immediately, find a full time job that keeps me in this city; after that… maybe own a coffee shop someday? IDK, I have a masters in social work ffs, why do I want to own a coffee shop? Travel more with people I love.

justsheddingskin replied to your postI don’t get why no one holds Shane accountable for…

I didn’t like Shenny bc Jenny got all possessive, I need you always, and Shane was stupid and didn’t end it when she should have AS ALWAYS. I love Shane sometimes but you are 100% accurate. She always cheats and it’s fucked up.

I can see why it would look that way, but I don’t think Jenny was out of place or that much more possessive than anyone else. I mean, she was right to be. Shane ended up lying and betraying her and cheating. And Jenny knew her history so she wanted to keep tabs on her and have some sense of control. Which I think is fine? And yeah, I just think Shane could have really proved she grew up and was ready for a real relationship that ends for a reason other than “I cheated” or “I’m going to cheat eventually” OR doesn’t end at all. You would think that getting romantically involved with your best friend would change you, at least a little, for the better. You’d think she’d make an effort to be a better girlfriend. But she acted out and was selfish and was worse than ever before because she didn’t even show remorse! I CAN’T omg

I am just so moved by your post. You just put into words everything I feel about Tarot and all the darkness it has dreaded for the forefront of my consciousness over the years. I just appreciate you and your astonishingly real take on life and pain and struggle. Thank you so much for that. I hope you are well and pushing through. Also your use of Audre Lorde's erotic was so fucking on point. Bless you.

If we were face to face I would hug you right now if you were cool with it.

Thank you. So much.

And for real, Audre Lorde’s Use of the Erotic, along with the idea of “the wild zone” for unnamed and marginalized experiences, have been the two best things I’ve learned in my classes. They’ve expanded my views on how everything in life connects and how people work to label their experiences. Doing tarot has helped build up on that.

I’m glad it resonated with you. Thank you for sharing. <3 <3 <3

Nope. It’s been a long while.

You know, I don’t think I have. Second, yes, but first? Hmm. I’m not opposed.

Romantic or sexual feelings, no idea. Friend feelings and appreciative feelings, yeah I’m pretty sure. I co-facilitated a diversity education and dialogue workshop yesterday and got some good feedback, so I know those feels are a thing, lol.

Yep. A lot of time and a lot of energy. They turned out to be a shit person, so I stopped engaging with them.
