goodbye to sleep

i think this staying up is exactly what i need

2 notes

So I’ve been MIA for a while, and that is because on the 4th, my partner and I packed everything we own into Betsy (my Scion), drove from Southern California to Minnesota. Since then, he’s started work in a new kitchen, we signed a lease on a tiny studio apartment in a building from 1908, I found a job working with developmentally disabled adults, and we have been super busy exploring our new home.
Pictures: the boy with Miss Betsy, driving through Big Sur, us leaving San Jose, the sky in Wyoming, three days of driving selfie, new skyline, urban explorers, the new digs, us in the new digs, and the Mississippi River.
I’ll try to be less absent!

Why Guys Like Asian Girls - Anna Akana

Everyone needs to watch this video. Now.

100% on point especially about men thinking that having “yellow fever” is a compliment and we’re supposed to be flattered by it. It’s the #1 way to parade around your blatant racism.

OMG OKAY THIS IS GOLD. The pallas cat at my local zoo apparently does this, and there’s a little sort of kid-level viewing window into its habitat, and the keeper in that area told me that the pallas cat likes to hide beneath the window. So when the kids press their faces up to the glass, searching the exhibit for the animal, the pallas cat suddenly pops up directly in front of their faces and scares the ever-loving shit out of them. Pallas cat: recreationally scares children. Tell your friends.

I AM FREAKING CRYIN’

IT GOT BETTER

Being born a woman is an awful tragedy. Yes, my consuming desire to mingle with road crews, sailors and soldiers, bar room regulars—to be a part of a scene, anonymous, listening, recording—all is spoiled by the fact that I am a girl, a female always in danger of assault and battery. My consuming interest in men and their lives is often misconstrued as a desire to seduce them, or as an invitation to intimacy. Yet, God, I want to talk to everybody I can as deeply as I can. I want to be able to sleep in an open field, to travel west, to walk freely at night.

Sylvia Plath

fuck every single time that last line gets quoted without the rest
