how diverse is the staff over at marvel, though? how many women writers/illustrators? how many people of color? are we sure this isn’t just white men capitalizing off of our lack of representation? are there receipts available?
the day was going fine and then all of the women i work with got in a little argument over each other not doing their job and such. it all happened so suddenly. they were all mad at each other and being silent so to break the tension i said “well, looks like the day has taken a turn for the worst.” in like a movie announcer voice.
i did shrooms for the first time not too long ago and it was a very profound experience for me but i don’t talk about it because every time i try to articulate what it was like for me i feel like i sound like how jaden smith tweets. and that doesn’t sit well with me.
on my 21st birthday i walked around everywhere with a bottle of grey goose in one hand and a bottle of malibu rum in the other because around that time Monster had just dropped and i just wanted to be Kanye so bad.
i was just sitting on a bench outside behind this older couple. and they were a pretty cute older couple. very affectionate toward each other. whispering in each others ears and giggling. staring into each others eyes and exchanging small kisses. and i dont see older couples be this like loving toward each other often so i found this to be a very sweet moment and i just felt a lot of joy for them. well wishes and all that. and then they started full on making out. right in front of me. and they were getting heated. like grabbing at each other. he was like cupping the back of her old head and they were just going at it, man. like i wasn’t sitting right there. i had to get up and walk away to give them some fucking privacy.
-You cannot be sexist toward men. Sexism is based on a system of oppression. You CAN be discriminatory, rude, inconsiderate, and/or prejudiced against men but you CANNOT be sexist toward them.
-You cannot be racist towards white people. Racism is based on a system of oppression. You CAN be discriminatory, rude, inconsiderate, and/or prejudiced against white people but you CANNOT be racist toward them.
i have to write a summary on this article i’m reading about the difference between white lies (or lies that are prosocial and harmless) and black lies (or lies that are antisocial and harmful to a social network) and its like bruh….who the fuck coined these phrases? who votes on this shit?
the last time i went to whole foods, on my way out the whole foods cop stopped me and said “you’re a really good shopper.” i said “uhh…i am?” and he was like “yeah. you maneuver around the store like you know what you’re doing. i’ve been watching you. i can tell you must be really good in the kitchen.”
i was 2-3 years late on danny brown’s music because when he first started to garner attention i was pretty homophobic and hadn’t become aware of it yet and i saw a picture of danny brown and judged a book by its cover.
i need to start using my “i didn’t graduate from high school and now i’m trying to ivy league” story to my advantage. white people love lending a hand to colored people with stories like that. shit, if i make it, i’m practically guaranteed a movie deal.
Hey what stores do you go to to buy books to flip on Amazon? That sounds like a great side hustle.
anywhere you can buy books for cheap, really. thrift stores are where i get most of my books. there are on sale sections in bookstores (new and used). clearance aisles in stores like walmart and target. your local library probably has cheap books for sale. if you get really into it you can check ebay and craigslist.
the key to it all is finding how much the book is worth on amazon based on its condition, there’s an app for that. that will tell you more than anything what’s worth buying and what’s not.
i just realized that i have little knowledge of the constitution. i know the preamble by heart (shoutout to schoolhouse rock) and i know a few of the more popular amendments (right to bear arms, freedom of speech) but i don’t even know those by number. i’m out here walking these streets with partial knowledge of my rights. am i crazy?
