HAPPY SHIN-gle awareness day in advance. Never confessed to anyone ever in my life and not planning to. So this is a special occasion :’D There are always these special characters in our lives that make it a bit merrier and I enjoy this short ride to fullest :’D  Take it with a grain of salt it’s rly just a joke. Maybe.

*EDIT….I rly lost all my shame huh.

One of my favorite experiences I’ve had with another Assassin’s Creed fan was when I moved into this newly built neighborhood.  It was Halloween and I was passing out candy, and a family came by with a teen dressed up like Altair!  I nearly dropped my bowl of candy as I pointed at him and exclaim, “OMG ITS AN ALTAIR!” to which he pointed at me and exclaimed “OMG A PERSON WHO KNOWS I’M ALTAIR AND NOT EZIO!”  In that moment, we bonded- and in a way, so did our mothers because I heard them murmuring how they didn’t understand a single word we said.

I finally pushed the publish button on this mini cookbook project. It took forever.

I found some time this week to finish it up due to some life circumstances (to put it lightly).

An excerpt of the introduction:

“Food evokes strong emotions for me because it is how I connect with my background, my heritage, and my ancestors. In our family, on my mother and father’s side, sharing food is a sign of love and an integral part of how we greet each other. Going to a relatives’ house meant that one would be greeted with locally grown sliced fruit seasoned with preserved plum powder or a tray of assorted Asian candies. Whenever we would go to Ah-Ma’s house, the first thing she would ask is “have you eaten yet?” in Taiwanese.

[…]

I wanted to weave together elements of my family’s story into something shareable which is how this cookbook can to be. Pulling elements from my heritage and combining it with my Midwestern upbringing means that I can tell my version of our family’s food story.  This cookbook is not about what traditional Taiwanese or Chinese families eat. This is about my family, what we eat, and what I like to eat.“

I’m Clementine Willams.
I’m the stylist of the great @gonnakeepgettingunderneathyou. I make sure he always looks his best!! (Kinda an easy job tbh :P) I also do some modeling and burlesque performance for my own little pleasure :)

While we’re on the roll of posting words that are way, way older than you think, I’d just like to point out another literary thing that has existed long before we thought possible.

“Your mom” jokes.

Yes, even Shakespeare wasn’t above them. Need proof? Here’s a piece of dialogue from Titus Andronicus:

Demetrius: “Villain, what hast thou done?”
Aaron: “That which thou canst not undo.”
Chiron: “Thou hast undone our mother.”
Aaron: “Villain, I have done thy mother.”

We need to live on our Earth Mother in balance and with reverence towards all life. We need to tap into her creative abilities and power by aligning with her, loving her, and revering her. We must ensure that she can give us life, strength, and energy to grow and change as well as sustain future life. Mother can grant us serenity, balance and nurturance 🌀so start chanting, get outside and get connected, be sustainable, hug a tree, plant a tree, and live with love #sacredscapes by sacredscapes https://www.instagram.com/p/BBsr7hdNADv/

My brother and I never knew our father, my mother loved us but died when my brother was born. We were both adopted soon after her death by a good Christian couple….they are our parents now.
I know in my heart that our mother prayed for us to stay together, and the God would protect us….and He has.
I would walk on glass or through fire to save him. He is blood of my blood, bone of my bone and flesh of my flesh.
I love you Kyle.

Colonize This! Young Women Of Color On Today’s Feminism — Daisy Hernandez

“As young women of color, we have both a different and similar relationship to feminism as the women in our mothers’ generation…The difference is that now we talk about these issues in women’s studies classes, in classrooms that are multicultural but xenophobic and in a society that pretends to be racially integrated but remains racially profiled.”

Redefining Realness — Janet Mock

“When I think of identity, I think of our bodies and souls and the influences of family, culture, and community - the ingredients that make us. James Baldwin describes identity as ‘the garment with which one covers the nakedness of the self.’ The garment should be worn “loose,” he says, so we can always feel our nakedness. ‘This trust in one’s nakedness is all that gives one the power to change one’s robes.’ I’m still journeying toward that place where I’m comfortable in this nakedness, standing firmly in my interlocking identities.”

Sister Outsider: Essays and Speeches — Audre Lorde

“Guilt is not a response to anger; it is a response to one’s own actions or lack of action. If it leads to change then it can be useful, since it is then no longer guilt but the beginning of knowledge. Yet all too often, guilt is just another name for impotence, for defensiveness destructive of communication; it becomes a device to protect ignorance and the continuation of things the way they are, the ultimate protection for changelessness.”

Feminism Is For Everybody — bell hooks

“Simply put, feminism is a movement to end sexism, sexist exploitation, and oppression…Practically, it is a definition which implies that all sexist thinking and action is the problem, whether those who perpetuate it are female or male, child or adult.”

This Bridge Called My Back: Knowledge, Consciousness, and the Politics of Empowerment — Cherrie Moraga and Gloria Anzaldúa

“We are challenging white feminists to be accountable for their racism because at the base we still want to believe that they really want freedom for all of us.”

Literally anything by Kimberlé Crenshaw, who coined the term “intersectionality” in 1989. From her article “Mapping the Margins: Intersectionality, Identity Politics, and Violence Against Women of Color”:

 “Contemporary feminist and antiracist discourses have failed to consider intersectional identities such as women of color…I consider how the experiences of women of color are frequently the product of intersecting patterns of racism and sexism, and how these experiences tend not to be represented within the discourses of either feminism or antiracism.”
