“Other people are raced, we (whites) are just people. There is no more powerful position than that of being ‘just’ human. The claim to power is the claim to speak for the commonality of humanity.”—Richard Dyer in The Matter of Whiteness
I’m beginning to think 6 months of this place might kill me. I am finding it difficult to be around my stepmom, my dad, their bastard child and their big jumpy dog. ugh. I need a job and I need one fast so I’m not stuck here getting really good at Rock Band.. :/
I’ve come to the conclusion my dad is hardly that and I don’t think he’ll do better with this new one.

It is totally scary. When you drive at night its like being in a horror movie where your car breaks down and its raining so you walk to a cabin because you think you’ll be safe until the morning when you can get somewhere that gets good cell reception to call a tow but its not because its a fucking serial killer family/ cannibal family’s house!
couldn’t bring my bike to wv so I left it in kenner and put up a craigslist posting. someone emailed to express some interest but was asking me to lower the price because they are ” poor”. then at the end of the email I see ” Sent from my Ipad”
ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?! YOU ARE “POOR”!? BITCH SHUT THE FUCK UP. MAYBE SELL YOUR GODDAMN IPAD AND THEN GET AT ME. SRSLY SUCK A DICK. I’M NOT EVEN ASKING FOR THAT MUCH TO BEGIN WITH CONSIDERING EVERYTHING THAT COMES WITH THE BIKE- 2 LOCKS, XTRA INNER TUBES FOR THE TIRES, AND BIKE LIGHTS. UGH.
I totally hate fake ass personas people perpetuate on the internet and IRL. People whose fb pictures always look the same, or they fucking name drop people as if they are really close but really just riding another persons cool wave because they think its going to level them up. What happened to being fucking real? I’m probably not real either though so this post is pretty much nothing.
p.s- bought some hot pink manic panic to dye my outrageous ends. decided not to bleach half my bangs. I’m probably going to wait to dye my hair pink. so whatevs
Feels soooo good to be back in Virginia!! Kind of sucks I’m not close with a lot of friends here anymore but I was beyond happy to hang ten with my VA true bros as well as my AL/TN true bro, Alexandra. So many lols to be had. The change of environment has greatly helped my attitude towards my life. And going to my dad’s will totally help me figure shit out internally. 4sure. srsly fuck memphis. lol to my memphis bros.
I thought I understood it, that I could grasp it, but I didn’t, not really. Only the smudgeness of it; the pink-slippered, all-containered, semi-precious eagerness of it. I didn’t realize it would sometimes be more than whole, that the wholeness was a rather luxurious idea. Because it’s the halves that halve you in half. I didn’t know, don’t know, about the in-between bits; the gory bits of you, and the gory bits of me.
“They’re fucking gross, man. Look, I love beautiful girls too. I think everyone should be free to have their knee socks and their sweaty shorts, but I’m over it. I’m over this weird, exhausted girl. I’m over the girl that’s tired and freezing and hungry. I like bossy girls, I always have. I like people filled with life. I’m over this weird media thing with all this, like, hollow-eyed, empty, party crap.”—
