our friend noah
almost got mugged today
they were like “give us your money”
and he literally was like “no thanks?” and WALKED AWAY
and it worked
WHAT THE FUCK????
me and my friend were walking down the street and she had her phone in her back pocket and she felt someone take it and she immediately turned around, grabbed his arm, and said “phone.” and he just gave it back
WEAK-ASS MUGGERS GOD PULL YOURSELVES TOGETHER
One time a dude jumped out from under a theater & tried to grab me. I had an open knife in my hand & I pulled it on him & he jumped back, & said, “sorry,”
No one screams
When will women realize how important self-worth is? When will they realize that no dude is worth losing themselves or sobbing on the kitchen floor or screaming in a narrow hallway about ultimatums and life altering choices. When will women learn that their inner happiness is more important than any of these shitty dudes they “love”? That love isn’t laying down to die. That love isn’t about midnight panic attacks or incessant verbal abuse in the shape of an “I love you,” A relationship is a choice and it’s a choice that should make people feel safe, happy, and secure. It’s not a choice that should leave someone paralyzed with fear and completely alone. There are worse things than being single and being with a shitty dude that destroys every ounce of what makes you human is definitely a lot fuckin’ worse.
"There is nothing gutsier to me than a person announcing that their story is one that deserves to be told, especially if that person is a woman. As hard as we have worked and as far as we have come, there are still so many forces conspiring to tell women that our concerns are petty, our opinions aren’t needed, that we lack gravitas necessary for our stories to matter,"
Conversations I’m tired of having
-How it’s possible to be straight edge, have fun, and not having the desire to get wasted
-Why shaming others for their eating habits is annoying and unnecessary (no, not eating meat does NOT make me “weird” and no, my sister’s gluten-free diet isn’t a pointless fad)
-Why it’s wrong to use words like “retarded” and “fag” to describe “uncool” things
-That as a woman, my specific role in life isn’t only to have children and when I’m told, “you’ll change your mind,” it’s dismissive and offensive
-Why looking at women and saying, “I would,” is completely unacceptable
-That yes, I am short and you telling me this does not make me grow any taller. No, I’m not a legal midget
-That the end goal of a relationship is not marriage. Not every woman dreams of her “one day, some day” and getting married is not something a woman “earns” or “deserves” and it is not wrong if a lady wants to keep or hyphen her maiden name
Hotel breakfast blues.
My daily struggle.
“I’m happy to see Jenny [Lewis] making records, I just feel like music needs her. It needs someone doing what she’s doing. She’s got a special voice, as a writer, and then as a musician. She’s this great combination of so many things.” -Beck, in the NYT
