To file or not to file a harrassment complaint? That is the question.
lost/misplaced my moleskine last night. all those notes on stuart hall, diaspora, human rights discourse, tourism. all that self-reflection on my time in korea, my positionality, tourist experience in india, etc. GONE. GONE. GONE. i feel like i’m missing an extension of my mind. UGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.
Wallowing in misery.
Food poisoning. Again. Ugh. Just looking at food makes me feel nauseous.
there are moments when we’re talking when it feels so right for me to say “i love you.” i don’t know if it’s still love or just remembering the moments/times when it was easy/better and meaningful to say those words.
slept 4 hours woke up to finding out that ppl could see things that i thought was private. (SERIOUSLY FUCK THE TIMELINE.) accidentally put my phone in the laundry machine. it’s sitting in a bag of rice. went to the wrong korean language discussion….THREE TIMES in a span of 20 minutes webreg isn’t working. can’t sign up for a fucking class. bitter. oh so bitter.
was just told you that you could see pictures i was tagged in. i’m incredibly fucking pissed. fuck you fb.

soydulcedeleche: And i dont believe in empowering yourself being dominance. But i do believe in finally opening your mouth to assert the fact that you too are human and get to need and want things to be a certain way too.

three years of falling for and falling apart, loving and being loved, hurting and being hurt, lying and being lied to, growing together and growing apart have taught me that words are cheap. i know my worth, but you clearly don’t. you had me, and you never will have me again.

zorascreation: I don’t date Muggles or Muggle-borns. It’s not racism, just a preference. I’ll date Half-bloods if they grew up in the magical world, though. Is it true all Muggle-borns have longer wands? It’s not MY fault Purebloods are naturally more powerful. I’ve never personally experienced “Pureblood Privilege”, so it doesn’t exist. How come you can call other Muggle-borns the M-word,...
