I’m down for a witty or a dark comedy that’ll actually make me laugh and I would like suggestions! Help me. Wow me. Show me you care.
Shout out to everyone who has to work a shitty minimum wage job (or multiple shitty minimum wage jobs) for a vampiric company (that doesn’t give a shit about its employees) because of capitalism and the commodification of essential goods necessary for sustaining life; and because the job market is structured to reinforce disparities of wealth and socioeconomic standing; and because you have mouths to feed, you have bills to pay, and/or you have no other choice.
Today, you are the real MVP.
Bitch, I’m me.
As a water lily
Gentle on the surface
Of his thoughts
His body floats
Unweighed down by
Passion or intensity
Yet unaware of the
Depth upon which he coasts
And he finds a home in me
For what misfortune sows
He knows my touch will reap
Yesterday was Amy’s birthday, but I didn’t have time to post about it, really. I guess I was so busy with life that I missed it. But she’s in my heart and soul every single hour of every single day, I promise you that much.
Happy 31st, mija. I love you more than you’ll ever know.

It wouldn’t be rude or intrusive but it would be very ignorant.
Students show solidarity by helping Columbia rape survivor carry her mattress
September 12, 2014
Responding to the call to “carry the weight together,” fellow students helped Emma Sulkowicz, the Columbia senior who is lugging her mattress everywhere while her rapist remains on campus, carry it from the courtyard to her class yesterday.
The collective carry was organized by students and alumni who want ”to help Emma carry the weight of the physical mattress, give her and other survivors of sexual assault in our community a powerful symbol of our support and solidarity, and show the administration that we stand united in demanding better policies designed to end sexual violence and rape culture on campus.”
As Alexandra wrote, the idea of “carrying the weight together” holds much symbolic resonance — not just as a way of lightening the burden on survivors but also by highlighting the collective sacrifice required to eliminate it. “If we all helped carry the weight of injustice, we could not bear it,” she wrote. “And so we would finally stop tolerating what we’ve been content to force others to carry alone.” And it makes a damn powerful visual too.

A demo of a song I’ve been working on.
not a question but you're singing is marvelous :))) —by Anonymous
I appreciate that ever so much! I actually just uploaded a new song to my SoundCloud. It’s a little bedroom demo, but it’s a peek at what I’ve been working on this past summer. Hopefully by October, I’ll have a whole slew of songs to roll out. :3
