Very very thankful for my strong friends who keep me in check. I have a lot of shit going on with anxiety, etc, and watching them be fucking tough and act like the adults we are reminds me that I am not the only person who has problems. There is no “being an adult;” you either are one or you’re not. I don’t blame things on other people or the universe anymore. I’m genuinely a god damn idiot half the time and I’m working on that too. I know so many selfish, irresponsible people and I’m not okay with it anymore. I’m coming to the end of my freshman year of college and I’ve had the same job for almost a year! I pay for my own shit and I’m understanding how money works. I’ll never grow up, but I am growing as a person. I’ve made so many friends and I’m not dependent on the attention of any of them, especially the guys (even though all of them are hot and it’s not fair). Lastly, it’s been fucking months since I tried to act or look like anyone else. I am entirely myself and it is a good thing. Shit sucks and will continue to suck and be difficult, but with friends like these, it’ll be all right.
its a paper talking about a historical non fiction book, mine being Frederick Douglass’s biography, and he fought for rights of people of color, the ending of slavery, and also women’s rights. I feel very passionately about it and i’m going to drive home the point that if you think what he fought for has been resolved it fucking hasn’t and he and what he stood for are important and I’m very excited! kaliem
