So, I’m publishing another book of poetry. A better one this time, since I wasn’t working to a deadline, and it won’t just be a kindle edition—it’ll be a real, live, beautiful physical book that you’ll be able to buy at loads of different retail sites! I just wanted to mention it on here to gauge what people’s thoughts would be, and see if people would be interested in buying/reviewing. Let me know!!!
Please don’t expect me to be really returning to this blog. A good deal of it makes me cringe. I’m still very active in social justice communities etc, but good god, I was a pretentious 14-yo. My “About Me” page kinda makes me wanna die, honestly. I just didn’t want anyone to think I was dead tbh.
I just got the notification today. I knew it was sometime in November, but honestly, I was just going to let it pass quietly. I never really mentioned any other blogging milestones, but I dunno–I got a little trophy, and this just seems kinda big to me.
Hush boy, hush boy don’t say a word
Throw on your jersey, no one gets hurt
Hush girl, hush girl, just bat your eyes
Play our little game, play our little game
This video is pretty powerful. Not to mention it was a teenager who came up with the whole thing. Most of the time I’m not all that into music videos, but this is definitely worth watching.
That’s literally the only reason I have for posting. I’m 15 now, which I guess probably makes me smarter and more likely to have sex or something like that. Hope y’all are having a good day
(insert a bunch of those party-blower confetti emojis)
I’m back from camp everybody !!! Except a loooong post about it (I have a LOT of stories, and some of them are even sort of relevant) in the next few days, but for now I hope you are enjoying your summer lovelies ❤
I doubt any of you are still reading this, but if you are, here is the shirt I wore a few nights ago when I went to a see Panic! at the Disco:
It’s from Hot Topic if any of you want one of your own. 😉 P!atD was a great show by the way, it was definitely worth both the money and the drive out there (out where? you’ll never know) and I highly recommend going to see it if you like their music and you’ve got the chance.
Okay, so, before you all go unfollow me in droves, please know I am alive and well and plan on returning to the blog as soon as the spirit moves me. I actually have a bunch of posts fully written out that I just haven’t typed. I’ve just been feeling really really mentally blah lately. I’ve barely been writing at all–not just blog posts, I haven’t really been writing much of anything. I don’t know why. I also haven’t been commenting on or liking anything, because I haven’t been reading much of anything lately either.
I have not abandoned this blog by any stretch of the imagination. I’ll still try to respond to comments should they arise and I still check my email that’s connected to this blog every couple of days. So if anyone needs to contact me please feel free. I’m really sorry about what I think amounts to my longest absence ever. I swear I’ll be back as soon as I stop feeling so shitty.
Sorry for the supreme lack of posting lately. There’s been a lot going on in my life that I’m not really ready to discuss at this point but know that I’m alive and well(ish). I will be back soon and believe me when I say that I have not abandoned you all. If anybody comments on a post I will make an effort to read and respond. I have a few posts in the works and I hope to get back to this little community soon.
I hope everyone is doing okay. Happy June first and good luck to everyone who has upcoming exams ❤
Said far better than I ever could. My heart goes out to the families of the victims.
We waited a bit to write something on this. Every new detail that comes out of this murder is horrific. It’s upsetting to think that this could have happened on any campus, and in fact, does happen with enough regularity that it’s a confirmed problem. Maybe Elliot Rodger was mentally ill. Maybe he was just a lonely, angry college kid who snapped. But maybe this has little bearing on what happened the other day in Isla Vista.
There is a reason for why mass shooters often fit a profile. Multiple studies have shown masculinity to be a violent identity, where white middle-class men fall back into men’s rights groups, white supremacy, and other reactionary movements. We have seen examples of this as comments on our website, where men believe they are suffering abuse because their sexual “needs” aren’t being met. But they suffer because of entitlement, and because they…
