Leave a Trail

A transcendentalist and satirist just trying to make it by

sammyjacksons:

I hate when you get hit with those random feelings of panic and the nagging sense that something isnt right even though everything around you looks fine and you’re just standing there staring with your heart rate steadily increasing and your hands trembling and you’re so frustrated because you don’t know what’s wrong or what you’re so scared about and man I just really hate that

     “Everyone my age is so keen on having friends, relationships, and being in love, but I’m OK with being single. I’m not really ready to be in a relationship and give my full attention to someone—I don’t even know how to give that to myself. Before I can even think about committing to someone else and their problems, I want to fully commit to myself. Now is the time to get to know myself and what I deserve: I need to be selfish now, so I can be selfless later.”

That awkward moment when someone says so eloquently what you’ve been trying to express in vain for months

do you ever have second-hand obsessions

like one of your friends is super obsessed with a thing so whenever you see something about it you’re like “YES THIS THING” but you’re not the one obsessed with it. they are. you know very little about this thing and yet it still excites you because it excites your friend

     “My mom died from diabetes and my dad was murdered. I’m in college, and I’m about to launch my own clothing line, as well as a non-profit organization.”     “How were you able to succeed despite losing your parents? Did you have a grandmother or someone who helped you?”     “Actually, I’m the one helping my grandmother. I was the type of kid who had strong ambitions—challenges drove me. I was presented with so many obstacles that I was expected to fail at everything: I wasn’t supposed to graduate from high school, I wasn’t supposed to go to college. But I never failed. No one in my family ever went to college—I’m breaking that chain.”

  • Do not forget Michael Brown
  • Do not forget how the media dehumanized him and tried to justify his murder
  • Do not forget how peaceful protests were painted as savage riots
  • Do not forget police armed with military grade weapons terrorized and arrested black civilians
  • Do not forget Darren Wilson being awarded over $200,000 in fundraiser donations for murdering an unarmed black child
  • Do not forget that this system was not built to defend us, but to control us
  • Do not forget Ferguson
