well I didn’t do enough school things today but I did tumbl quite a bit so I’m going to call that a job well done okay okay.
it infuriates me when people tell me “lifes too short to not forgive people!” like NO lifes too short for me to continually allow abusive and manipulative behavior in my life and live in a constant state of anxiety bc I want to be “nice” or whatever
might have just ordered myself a present for making it through my first week year two??? i deserve it???
👌 you definitely deserve em’
has spoken. 🙌
thinking about how we went to our first non-scrimmage football game of the season away on friday and the white man who was announcing stumbled over the names of all our black students. i just became increasingly frustrated, like if you don’t care enough to pronounce their names correctly please just say their first initials. or i don’t know, if you don’t know how to say some of the names, just ask someone. they’re not that complicated. one of our students (who is so sweet and whom I LOVE) had such a big game and scored three touchdowns and every single time his name was mispronounced and I can only imagine how irritating that must have been for him, like even in your minute in the spotlight people don’t care enough about you to learn how to say your name because it’s not michael or john or david. ugh i don’t know man.
"Asian actors with no accents. Black actors with British accents. British plays with people of color in roles other than housekeepers. Women in lead roles where they don’t fawn over any men. Latino actors in lead roles where they don’t have to be downtrodden. Gays and lesbians in lead roles where they don’t have to cry. South Asian and Middle Eastern actors in lead roles not about terrorism."
