i know i’ve touched on the subject before, but it just seems to be a recurring theme: race & relationships. by now, everyone should know my stance on the subject, ask if you don’t. but its like i’m constantly bombarded with ignorance each day. i can’t help but address it. some girls might take it as a compliment, but when a guy says i don’t date black/dark girls, but i’m an exception, i don’t exactly jump with joy. to me, thats a backhanded compliment. what i want to know is, why do people think that’s okay? call me overreactive, defensive, or even an angry black woman. we all have opinions, but i just want to hear some thoughts behind this. can anyone, and i mean anyone, help me with this?
I feel like I’m drifting away from all my closest friends. And I know it’s mainly my fault because I’m really bad at staying in touch with people…I barely even call my own mother! But it just seems like they are all moving on with their lives and meeting new people. While I’m just sitting here, the same place I’ve been for the past six months. I really miss my best friends.
you know i’m here nae. i have the picture from your graduation (my favorite picture EVER) on my desk in my dorm, so you’re always with me. text me. call me. Skype me. distance shouldn’t be a factor. you start a new chapter in August & i’m so excited for you. you live in CALIFA, you make anything happen!
i usually just blog pictures and anything else that i find appeasing to to the eye, but im much deeper than the outward appearance. im intrigued by language & poetry. i am strongly considering writing again..
“I used to do it for the love a long time ago and all I ever wanted was love. I used to love without fear a long time ago and all I ever wanted was love. Then somebody came around and tried to hurt me, tried to make me feel like I was unworthy. Took a pure love and tried to make it dirty, truth was they never did deserve me.”—Lauryn Hill (via kneehighsandlove)
