tennis court: lying on the track at your high school after sunset; getting picked up really early in the morning to go on a spontaneous weekend road trip; the sunday after the homecoming dance where you’re kinda tired kinda still energetic from the night before; inside a fast food restaurant drinking milkshakes eating fries until it closes

royals: chill basement party where there’s white balloons gold confetti / glitter two girls who love each other kissing; sitting in the backseat your parents occupying the front of the car you look out the window you see the rural countryside crawl by; pool pizza party at night simple pleasures like that

buzzcut season: on the bleachers during a powderpuff football game; sweating so much you might as well have been swimming it would be embarrassing but all the other boys are sweaty too; lost in the suburbs at like 5am and the world is still pale blue; lost in the city at 5pm the sun sinks its head behind skyscrapers; walking across a supermarket parking lot by yourself thinking of a boy you love

glory and gore: red mouth; lions in a gladiator ring and no one can seem to kill them; warriors with spears and shields painted on the dining room ceiling of a violent family’s mansion; fights on the lawn of an all boys private school; applying makeup the morning after a breakup; huge friend group made up of oracles + boys’ swim team + legendary heroes + valedictorian

white teeth teens: aesthetic blogging on a sunday afternoon just chillin in your bedroom; feeling like you could be something big if you work hard enough at it; getting psychoanalyzed by your teachers and parents and extended family; school bathroom pale blue tiles

(bonus) yellow flicker beat (kanye west rework): a dream with damien hirst-esque elements; sleepover at your friend’s villa and you’re the only one awake; looking out at a black sea from your dead cousin’s bedroom window, seeing a light in the distance; funeral mass; chill that runs down your friends’ spines when you enter the classroom the morning after they tried to kill you


Adrenaline junker.

Low IQ is linked to risk aversion. 

Slow brains, unable to weigh up tasks, unable to calculate likely outcomes, scared of improbable results, fearful of the unknown.

I am a warrior of the stupid then, with my spear and shield and boot knife.
Cowering in the corner from the landlord, from the ice filled streams I won’t drown in, from the walk alone in the dark.
I ride into battle on my wagon of safety, seatbelt on. 
I am the library goer, beneath a castle of books reading of adventures and how to eliminate the possibility of death during them.
I am the mathless calculator, working on instinct, quivering nonsensically and telling everyone to take care.
I am the thrill (of security) seeker, the anti monotony - pro predictability creature, pulling on ropes and refusing rides from strangers.
I am the couldn’t give a fuck whilst checking the rules for my own compliance kinda footloose gal.
I’m the free spirit, soaring above all things whilst checking the map for the right direction and simultaneously wondering about safe rest spots spirit.
I’m the laugh in the face of danger woman, the laugh and then back away slowly apologising profusely woman and then dream for years of how upset I made that person that one time woman.
I’m the drink out of a straw to avoid bee stings in a coke can lady, then a fuck the straw because the oceans are dying and pick a different drink lady.

I don’t know if I am the low IQ risk averse person, but I can tell you the countries you’re most likely to get attacked by a bear.

A prickly, hot-tempered woman who is given to martial pursuits as she considers herself a warrior, wielding a spear, a whip, and a round shield of steel and copper. She is hard, quick, and strong. She is fond of wine and is a confident rider who uses spurs, often to the point where the animal is bloody, and always rides stallions. Obara is a big-boned woman near to thirty, long-legged, with close-set eyes and rat-brown hair.
