Do other educated people ever get sad about the...
That they probably won’t ever travel that much? Despite knowing a lot about the world and its events and its history? I know so much about the world out there, but it’ll always be far away. I think that’s sad.
me: my beef stir-fry was supposed to serve 3 people, and I ate it all. Do you guys ever just feel like the very hungry caterpillar?
monica: omg, yes. And sometimes, I feel like the Rainbow Fish: I'm too beautiful and everyone is jealous me.
just some thoughts
I really was identifying with the Unabomber last week. Read up on his manisfesto and a lot of that speaks to me Batman Begins/The whole Dark Knight franchise seems really classist to me? I watched half of it last night, why did no one mention the pressures of living in an industrialized world and producing for the global market as one of the factors behind Gotham’s crime problem? And then...

drugdoer: Communists are just too unrealistic man. what’s realistic is this system, which is literally dependent on the idea that we have infinite resources for it to expand forever. like i said, realism

My coping strategy for this finals week
work all day in the library, writing papers, using my brain (also, a lot of online window shopping has happened) go home, make a dinner that doesn’t require a lot of effort SMOKE COPIOUS AMOUNTS OF WEED and then watch something like “Angels and Demons” or season 2 of the The Wire. this plan has an optional ending of walking down to the Chevron for sweet treats. and...
Finding my new staff members by scrolling through...
sweet, innocent little staff members. mama’s got a tumblr, too! Its creepy mostly because I already know all of them, I’ve been talking about them since February with my bosses and co-coords….. they have NO IDEA who I am aside from some girl who was in their interview, and then yelled ice breaker questions at them on Friday afternoon.
One of my professors this quarter was Kenny...
he’s also an 80-something year old black man, who used “Negro” as his term of choice when referring to African Americans. Totally understandable, considering his age and background and yeah just everything about that is okay. What isn’t okay is when I start using it in my final paper for a different class about white racial identity formation. Whoops! It has been...

trabantntreasure: The U.S. political establishment likes to claim that this country is one of if not the most democratic states in the world. Other countries opposing its agenda are lambasted as “undemocratic” whatever their actual governments and objectives may be, and the “spread of democracy” is often cited as pretext for U.S. military and covert intervention in other nations. At home,...

I had a gross stomach bug last week that took me out of commission for a couple days I went to a work conference over the weekend that was a lot of fun, I won an award for a little group problem solving presentation that I did with 2 other girls, one from Cal Poly - San Luis Obispo and the other from USC. Did some really good networking with the people from UC Davis… hopefully they can...

I cannot bring myself to do this reading. I’m sitting in an on campus cafe trying to read and this English might as well be Tagalog because I just don’t understand it. Lines blur before my eyes! I’m burned out on Jose Rizal and Noli Me Tangere and the Katipunan and Kalayaan…. Who cares? I’m now the type of history student who says “there’s no point in...

I'm really confused by my attraction to A$AP Rocky
like, is u real? how do you exist? and I really, really like this outfit from “Fuckin’ Problems” but I heard on Twitter that Gucci is mad about this Trap Lord mixtape from A$AP Rocky and I’m way more a fan of Brick Squad so I think I’ll just let this whole A$AP thing simmer.

Why did I think volunteering for an extra credit...
I really do not want to finish this powerpoint. IDGAF about extra credit at this point. And I’m realizing that there’s no way I can give this presentation without saying the n-word out loud. Its a class on race and identity, and my professor/other people have said it in an academic context or quoting from our reading, but I’m still really uncomfortable with the idea. And, in...
