I haven’t been able to make the connection between where my body and actions have been in physical space compared to where my head’s been dwelling. This has been happening since before the past week, always believing that I was a day ahead in time. 

first day of math class doodle. there seems to be a lack. disjointed. dread. developments.

when i’m having not so rad days, I like rewatching this bideo I made in 2012. I was a really into fashion blogging then and melting that with personal philosophies.

In the vid I’m wearing a thrifted Pepsi sweatshirt, aviator glasses, + a black hankerchief headband. The ranting is about a philosophy I call “Pedestrianism.” 

 I really like this video because its filmed in a weird fishtank and very honest.

Megan is a very inspiring person and I am grateful to get to meet/talk with him and I have thought about the Q he asks in this video ever since I saw it in 2012

do whatever makes you antsy and talk to people

hey guys! if you have been followin me for a while now, u will kno that i edit and curate a very cool zine dedicated to girls of colour called the coalition zine. if you didn’t know then now you know! what we do is we create a safe space where girls of colour can talk about our girlhood, our traumas, our triumphs and grow together in a community with people who share similar interests and backgrounds. a while back, we were able to raise enough money to print physical issues of the zine that has been available online for free but printing copies will help us reach a larger demographic and let people see all the cool shit that girls of colour are capable of doing and let people know that we are definitely worth it and more. of course, we are still going to have it available online. by the end of september, we will have an official site so we are very excited about that. 
i am making this post to invite other babes to come through and either submit to our third issue of our zine that will be out in September or join our staff or tell us cool things that u want us to talk about or, just spread this, let people know what we are about and that we are the shit, basically. if you have any questions, contributions, etc you can message me here or send us an email at msgthecoalition@gmail.com. don’t forget to check out the rad crew that makes this whole thing possible!
thank you so much for everything and i hope you have a lovely day.

These tweets (and one retweet) are from my friend Ryan, a journalist who has been on the ground in Ferguson for the past few days. (His Twitter account is here, and it’s a great source of updates on the situation there   [x]).

I just wanted to remind everybody that while spreading word about Michael Brown’s unjust murder and the horrifying events of the night of August 14, 2014, please do not oversimplify or ignore the complexities of the situation.

Journalists in the town have been doing what journalists do: focusing on all the negative aspects about the community to try and make it look like a hell-hole in order to sell their own pictures and stories, and basically all many of them want to do is further their own careers. But focusing on all that negativity only paints the picture of one side of the story, ignoring a lot of other important things going on there.

Please do not fall prey to the media’s game. Anger at the actions of the police in Ferguson is totally justified, but in the midst of that we cannot allow the people who are living with the situation every day to be dehumanized. Despite all this tragedy and chaos going on around them, they’re still a community and in many ways they’re pulling through all of it together. They want peace. Anyone looting or burning things down is a very small portion of the community. The whole story is so much bigger.

A story doesn’t need tear gas to be interesting. We need to hear every side of this story, not just the horrific parts.

TL:DR: please don’t fall prey to media attempts to dehumanize and oversimplify the situation in ferguson!!

(From what I understand, the police thought they heard a gunshot and started throwing tear gas into the crowd. Correct me if I’m wrong)
