when’s the last time you combed your hair?
I’m the person that shows up for the people I know will never show up for me.
because maybe I’m that person to someone else. and the universe will bring it back.
3 unsolicited selfies from 3 qtpocs. that’s what I call a good day.
If we are to fix the problems of contingent work, we need to find a new way to talk about work that encompasses all the work done today—unpaid, part-time, and insecure. To start, we can look at a movement that accomplished just that. The Wages for Housework movement and its rhetoric provide a model for a new way to talk about work, one that pushes all workers to see the value of their efforts. We should take their efforts seriously. Perhaps then we can organize for the compensation our time deserves.
my grandfather died last week. I got a text about it today.
when you’re telling someone that life is kinda difficult right now and they say, “oh pffft, but you’re so young!”
what I hear is: it doesn’t get better. it only gets worse. best hope, we get more used to the shit.

lol clever clever clever use of name AND font.
I’m in love with this.
I am 24 now. the past year has been one of the biggest transitions of my life thus far. I’ve broken up with 6 lovers. lost 5 friends. gave up one dog. moved out of the home i made. learned how to masturbate. relearned how to cry. stayed in bed for two months. then i got up.
I walked for my graduation. I was sworn in as a an americorps vista. I got my first apartment by myself. I went home and took care of my mother. I told my grandfather I was gay.
but, it does surprise me that life just keeps moving. because I’ve still got work to do to know that I am enough. all by myself.
The 5 Love Languages (Gary Chapman)
If you value communication, affection, positive support, and intimacy in your relationships, this is a great place to start. No matter the type of relationship, whether intimate partner, parent/child, friend, we all give and receive love in primary ways. Understanding how YOU give and receive love, and how the other person gives and receives love can be a vital component to support your relationship. In many ways it can make things far easier, as you aren’t spinning your wheels wasting time, effort, or money giving love in the way they don’t seem to appreciate.

I think about this a lot. mine are, tied for first, quality time and physical affection. then acts of service, gifts, and below lastly, words. I don’t believe shit you say. and I have a hard time letting you know.
