This weekend I hung out with one of my bffs from highschool and talked shit about someone and it was actually really refreshing and I went to a party and had a pretty good time, met a girl who I went to 1st grade with and it was really sweet. Ended up taking the commuter rail home with that same girl and had a nice conversation and I want to hang out with her more because she lives in Worc too but I dunno if that’d be weird?? Idk I think I might ask anyways because she mentioned hating Worc and not really having anything to do here and I’m kind of in the same boat so it’d be rad to make it less sucky together but FRIENDS HOW DO YOU MAKE THEM

"One of the most sinister things about normalized racism is you don’t have to have bad intentions to be racist, you just have to remain ignorant."

Republicans are scary but republicans under the age of 20 are even scarier
Yeah liberals are terrified of educated youth

'Tell me what happens the first time you see a woman naked.'
'The first time you see a woman naked will not be like you imagined. There will be no love, no trust, no intimacy. You won’t even be in the same room as her.
You won’t get to smile as she undresses you and you undress her. You won’t get to calm her nerves with nerves of your own. You won’t get to kiss her, feeling her lips and the edge of her tongue. You won’t get to brush your fingers over the lace of her bra or count her ribs or feel her heartbeat.
The first time you see a woman naked you will be sitting in front of a computer screen watching someone play at intimacy and perform at sex. She will contort her body to please everyone in the room but her. You will watch this woman who is not a woman, pixelated and filtered and customized. She will come ready-made, like an order at a restaurant. The man on the screen will be bigger than you, rougher than you. He will teach you how to talk to her. He will teach you where to put your hands and he will teach you what you’re supposed to like. He will teach you to take what is yours.
You must unlearn this. You must unlearn this twisted sense of love. You must unlearn the definition of pleasure and intimacy you are being taught. Kill this idea of love, this idea of entitlement, this way of scarring one another.’"

I’m missing Dakar so badly recently.
What I wouldn’t give to eat some of Oumy’s fried eggs (best in the world) or some ceebu jen or some of that sheep intestine stew my host mother made or yassa or some bouye juice
uggghhh I know I complained of how sick I was but I would gladly suffer through the yellow diarrhea if I could just eat any of those things right now
