things ppl say that alerts you to them being the actual worst:
- john was my favourite beatle
- abolishing religion would solve a lot of problems
- i’m not a racist i hate all races equally
- disliking someone because of their political affiliation is ridiculous
- but if you…
There’s suddenly an influx of interested dudes in my life and I don’t know how to handle this.

I am the girl that ‘got hot’ after highschool.
It’s not because I lost the weight or finally figured out that clothes were for more than covering my skin. It’s not because I realized I had breasts or because I grew into my face and grew out my hair. It’s not because I stopped trying to hide my height, and I definitely didn’t just randomly develop social skills.
The reason I ‘got hot’ after highschool is because there was no one telling me I wasn’t."
I’m either overwhelmed by human interaction or craving human interaction.

stay away from people who make you feel like you are hard to love
This is the most important thing I have ever read.
White people get so angry at the phrase, “You cannot be racist towards white people.”
I will never understand why.
Why are you so angry that you are being treated as actual human beings? You are not reduced to caricatures, but portrayed as characters. You are treated fairly, judged not by your skin tone, but by the ways that you carry yourselves, by your actions.
Why do you want to experience racism so badly? It is not fun to be mocked, dehumanized, attacked, killed, incarcerated simply for daring to exist. It is not fun to know nothing of your history or family because it was torn apart, whether through distance or death. It is not fun to hear, at every turn, comments reminding you of your lesser status as humans.
Do you really want to turn on the tv, open a magazine, watch a movie, play a video game, and not see yourself? Or, even better, to only see yourself as a criminal, as a drunk, a mocking stereotype, or as someone to be killed off? Or would you rather see fleshed out, well-written characters with lives and personalities and feelings? I know which I’d rather pick.
If I were a white person, the phrase, “You cannot be racist towards white people,” would be the best thing I could ever hear."
My best friend was reading compatibility horoscopes to me over the phone because that’s how we bond. One of them said that I could learn something from one of the dudes in my life. We couldn’t think of what it was that I could learn from him.
Me: I don’t know…he’s taught me a thing or two about being a good Samaritan.
K: Wait, he does charity work?
Me: No, but me gracing him with my presence is charity work.
