GPOY - We All Pretend We’re Models on Photo Booth/Tumblr, RIGHT?

Recently, I have been trying to reconcile the moments in which I really dislike people based on nothing else but that they’re white, rich, etc., etc. It simples comes to down to 1) my desire to not hate or be filled with hate, 2) the realization that often, I’m operating on blinding stereotypes, whether they be of privilege or not, in the same oppressions I seek to challenge. (This does not erase the fact that the people I tend to “hate” have more privilege/power. My oppressive mentality does not actually result in oppression, like it would be vice versa… but it is the same way of thinking, and I want nothing of it.) 

I think by challenging myself to confront this moments, I can come up with alternative ways that are much more fruitful. Ex: I buy (capitalist ways of thinkingg) the stereotypes of greek life: the ‘buying’ friends, the need to be superficial, the culture of drinking/sexual assault…. Instead, I can recognize that there are people in greek life that fit these stereotypes, just as there are people outside of greek like that fit them too. This is an individual challenge. How to change the status quo outside of myself? 

I think there is too much truth to the stereotype fraternity culture that tacitly aligns with, if not, actively perpetuates rape and drug culture. I think it is also true that fraternities and sororities are sources of an incredible amount of community service, be it voluntary or involuntary. I think there should be a large scale movement within in greek life to challenge these cultures. Be it training for all brothers and sisters on creating safe spaces or awareness campaigns… I want to see it.

Thanks again to the beautiful cashier who subtly made my day by giving me a discount. It's really the small things that people will always remember you for. I would've texted you but I don't have your number anymore. :( Anonymous

Who is this?!

"Some periods of our growth are so confusing that we don’t even recognize that growth is happening. We may feel hostile or angry or weepy and hysterical, or we may feel depressed. It would never occur to us, unless we stumbled on a book or a person who explained to us, that we were in fact in the process of change, of actually becoming larger, spiritually, than we were before. Whenever we grow, we tend to feel it, as a young seed must feel the weight and inertia of the earth as it seeks to break out of its shell on its way to becoming a plant. Often the feeling is anything but pleasant. But what is most unpleasant is the not knowing what is happening. Those long periods when something inside ourselves seems to be waiting, holding its breath, unsure about what the next step should be, eventually become the periods we wait for, for it is in those periods that we realize that we are being prepared for the next phase of our life and that, in all probability, a new level of the personality is about to be revealed."

I want you to imagine a ten year old version of yourself sitting right there on this couch. Now this is the little girl who first believed that she was fat, and ugly, and an embarrassment.

"

It took me exactly five tries to be able to let you go
without leaking regret all over your work shirt
and even then I’m sure you were able to hear my bones trembling
in the space of those silences

that was how well you could read me
not like a children’s book at all but like I
was a theory to settle the universe
and you were the only scientist to speak that code

So when you began to pull away, I knew
that falling out of love would not be the same
as falling in and even ‘fall’ was not the right word
I hurtled into you with the ferocity of a broken wing on a jet engine

you were the soft earth beneath all that metal
we fit like a collision and when we began to scrape apart
I found that pieces of myself were left inside of you
shrapnel, a bone of my elbow, the cap of my knee, my shoulder blade

there is something gently calming in the way I know
that it will take you years to methodically extract me
from your body, and that twinge you’ll get sometimes in your leg twenty years later?
it’s the fallout from where I met you head on

and I know it’s not your fault that you couldn’t stay
it’s not mine either sometimes
broken things can’t be helped but those people who say that
there is beauty in destruction?

Show them your scars
show them our train wreck of a love
there is nothing beautiful
about how two people can destroy
and save each other at the same time.

"



- Azra.T “There’s No Beauty in the Breakdown.”  (via 5000letters)

Oh god oh god



"i want to apologize to all the women i have called beautiful
before i’ve called them intelligent or brave
i am sorry i made it sound as though
something as simple as what you’re born with
is all you have to be proud of
when you have broken mountains with your wit
from now on i will say things like
you are resilient, or you are extraordinary
not because i don’t think you’re beautiful
but because i need you to know
you are more than that"

If you could go anywhere in the world right now would it be to a “where” or to a “who”?

I was not prepared for this question

Damn. Don’t know which is worse.

California, right now.
