Why do I always feel like I need permission to eat?




"Isn’t it funny that a smile can hid a broken heart and the masking of your feelings is a secret art."

"

My brother killed himself
on the twenty-eighth Thursday of last year
and I missed four days of work
and my mom wanted to know ‘Why’.
My brother
he was always a fan of beauty
but what he did
was not beautiful at all.

And last week I got the news
that one of my good friends from high school
had overdosed
(again)
except this time
she’d gone too far
and now she was gone.
And I had a hard time falling asleep at night
and her mother
hugged me tight
and thanked me for coming to the service
but I did not
want to be there at all.
This is not
beautiful.

The girl down the street
would’ve turned 21 last year
and I can scarcely imagine
the wild times she would’ve
(should’ve)
had.
But she is buried six feet deep
after falling nearly 300
and she did not leave a note.
This is not
beautiful.

My freshman year of college
and my roommate was beautiful
and how I wanted to be just like her.
But she wore herself down
till she was
almost invisible
and if you blinked
you had to go and find her all over again.
So now her parents are no longer supporting her college tuition
but are paying her hospital bills
watching their daughter crumble.
This is not
beautiful.

So y’all can take your narcissistic
romanticizing
and glamorizing
of self harm and eating disorders and committing suicide
and shove them as far up your ass
as you possibly can.
Starvation is not beautiful.
Killing yourself is not beautiful.
Sadness
is not beautiful.
This note I am writing
is not beautiful.

But you
you are beautiful
and it’s about damn time you start believing it.

starved nor excessive,
a balance

dream of;
perfectly perched

I just consumed that pizza which was the entire circumference of that plate right there for dinner. Supposedly it has three servings worth.

3-4 months ago I wouldn’t have even eaten pizza. Hell I didn’t even eat dairy.

The caloric intake of that entire pie would have been the high end of calories that I would have consumed in a fifteen hour day.

I ate it in about 8 minutes because it was that fucking delish and because it took way longer to cook than I thought so I was uber hungry.

RECOVERY WIN!

An angsty post about cultural appropriation towards pagans

No it is not.  Not even close.  

Up top: The Ouija board is a board game that was invented in 1890, not a religious or cultural matter of any kind.  It is so new, that it is actually currently patented by Hasbro, which is why most versions you see don’t actually say Ouija on them.  The mystical history of the ouija board was pretty much invented out of whole cloth by its creators, and even if they were true, their version of events is actually cultural appropriation from the chinese, so no, there is literally nothing that a white pagan could legitimately be upset about in the use of the Ouija board in jewelry and nailart.  

The five-pointed-star is a symbol that has been so widely used in history, it’s current ‘wicca’ meaning is actually the odd man out, here.  Using it as a protective symbol is within it’s historical uses, and if it were in fact being misused in these images it is not being used in a way that is causing you harm.  

But the biggest difference is that the pictures on the bottom?  They’re part of an ongoing problem in american culture.  Seeing a pagan symbol used in a way you don’t agree with may be upsetting, but native people are so marginalized and fetishized that some people believe they are imaginary.  Native women suffer outrageous statistics or rape, violence, and murder.  The projected lifespan of a native person is drastically shorter than that of a white person due to outside factors.  Asian women in the US are seen as a fetish and ‘geisha dolls’, while the men are considered a joke.  Blacks in the US are unjustly incarcerated, murdered with impunity, and suffer levels of violence and discrimination I’m only just beginning to understand.

So unless the Ouija board and Supernatural are causing genocide and rape, do not compare the two.  It’s okay to be upset about something, but do not claim that misplaced anger is even close to the legitimate anger the bottom images should cause.

That rebuttal was on point

Welp

I rock






Shari. Technicaly a 90s bitch, but I'm an old soul.

American University Class of 2017.

DC is my playground.

I have lots of obsessions. Listing them would be pointless, just look at my blog to see.

Olivia Pope is my spirit animal. At some point my blog became overcome by the most beautiful girl in the world, both inside and out. If you don't know who that is, just look to the left. Kerracter.

I quote Breakfast at Tiffany's.

I am a political junkie/nerd... you have been warned.

"...oh dream maker, you heartbreaker wherever you're going I'm going your way..."
