5. Talk about the best birthday you’ve had.

My 23rd birthday was pretty cool. Went to one of my favorite museums (Museum of the Moving Image), had a great dinner, and then got these AWESOME cupcakes that had disney characters on them. They were delicious! I think what I remember most about it was that even though what I did was low-key, for the most part I had memorable moments with people I cared about.

6. Talk about the worst birthday you’ve had.

My 9th Birthday. Because our birthdays our so close, usually me and my sister would share birthday parties. This one happened to be one of this birthday parties/family parties that everyone and their mother was invited, getting drunk off their minds, arguing, but most of all ignoring me and my sister. I mean they did the ceremonial “sing happy birthday and blow out candles thing”, but me and my sister had to keep ourselves entertained while everyone else enjoyed themselves. And then, because I spoke up about it, I got grounded right after and the birthday money we got we lost privileges to use it. It was a hot mess…

7. Talk about your biggest insecurity.

Hoo boy…can I just say my whole body? I’m really insecure about how my body looks, my weight, my weird proportions (large hands, feet, arms and legs, but short torso), my skin I’ve only barely started getting comfortable with, my teeth. Like damn, my whole body is an insecurity that I’m attempting to work through. Some days are better than others.

8. Talk about the thing you are most proud of.

Tbh, the thing I’m most proud of is getting out of a suicidal/self-harming habits. My depression + suicidal thoughts used to be something I struggled with every day, and I’ve had the fortune of being able to get out of that through therapy and a really strong support system. I still struggle with depression and anxiety, but no matter how bad it gets (and it can get really bad), suicide/self-harm no longer crosses my mind as an option. And I’m really proud of that because it feels so much better for me to be here.

How about as a color belt when you tell people what rank you are and they only ever answer, “How close is that to black?” :p

iacknowledgebuttholesexist:

Springfield, Mo students and other residents show their true colors as a student-organized silent demonstration protesting the extrajudicial murder of African Americans draws anger and slurs.

As a former MSU student, I find this absolutely appalling, but not exactly unexpected. Springfield is the same town where Neo-nazis show up to the yearly Pridefest, where KKK flyers are left on people’s doorsteps, and where most of the black population was run out of town by fear of lynching in the early 20th century.

The university says it promotes cultural competence and diversity, but are being oddly silent about these recent events, other than to try to stop the demonstration before it happened, and erasing sidewalk chalk messages (which never happens to the hundreds of sidewalk messages promoting religious gatherings or dance parties).

If you’re a white student at MSU (or anywhere), and you’re not speaking out about the way your fellow white students are acting, you’re part of the problem.
