Of course! I’ve been doing the same thing, feeling guilty about not contacting you more and hoping you didn’t think I was a bad friend. Space is good sometimes, but I have missed you as well. I’m leaving tomorrow (on your birthday, happy early birthday!) and I’ll be gone most of the month, but when I get back we’ll have to hang out. weird tiny white girl still loves you lots as well <3 hope you have a great birthday and rest of the summer! We’ll have to catch up on everything you’ve been up to :)
In my experience most the people I’ve seen asking for others to tag/saying it’s triggering for them have been poc, so that’s really what I’m going on.
Also, this may be an unpopular opinion, but I don’t think people have an obligation to reblog anything about it if they don’t want to. Not having it on your blog doesn’t mean you aren’t aware of the situation and don’t care about what’s going on.
Personally i’ve been having a pretty bad week in relation to anxiety and images of guns/descriptions of gun violence can give me panic attacks, so I’ve been staying off tumblr quite a bit. I’d never ask someone to tag, because I know it’s me who has the problem and so I can find the solution, but I’ve been tagging my posts for people who may not be able to handle it right now.
Obviously if white people are feeling uncomfortable because of the role of race, then they need to question that discomfort. But I think people have a right to be made uncomfortable by the violent, horrible murder of a teenager and not want to see footage/pictures/graphic descriptions every time they go online.
I am keeping up to date with the further corruption taking place and the protest efforts, and I try to spread information about what people can do to help. But I don’t think anyone should have to apologize for being upset by the horrible events that have happened and are happening in Ferguson right now.
You will be okay:-)
thank you this was actually a really nice message i read it right before i left! :)
“I like clothes now. I have more energy. I sleep better. My sex drive is up. Blood’s flowing. I’m less susceptible to impulse. I’m in a different mode. When I was way out of shape, the idea of using whitening strips on my teeth seemed terrible. I have to do that every day? I’ll never do it. What you want is instant results when you’re out of shape. You want your teeth whitened in 45 minutes with the use of lasers. But when you’re in shape, you know it’s the result of doing a little bit every day. Moments aren’t just moments. A moment might be a week or a month. So instead of Boy, I’d love to eat this hamburger right now, I’m considering a little further into the future. I’m thinking, I eat that hamburger and that’s 1,200 calories, and I’m gonna work out tomorrow and lose 800 calories. I may as well eat a salad here, still do that workout, and then I’m actually making progress.” — Chris Pratt
This just motivated the fuck out of me.

I live in the American Gardens building on West 81st Street on the 11th floor. My name is Patrick Bateman. I’m 27 years old. I believe in taking care of myself, in a balanced diet, in a rigorous exercise routine. In the morning, if my face is a little puffy, I’ll put on an ice pack while doing my stomach crunches. I can do a thousand now. After I remove the ice pack, I use a deep pore cleanser lotion. In the shower, I use a water-activated gel cleanser. Then a honey almond body scrub. And on the face, an exfoliating gel scrub. Then I apply an herb mint facial masque, which I leave on for ten minutes while I prepare the rest of my routine. I always use an aftershave lotion with little or no alcohol, because alcohol dries your face out and makes you look older. Then moisturizer, then an anti-aging eye balm, followed by a final moisturizing protective lotion. There is an idea of a Patrick Bateman. Some kind of abstraction, but there is no real me. Only an entity, something illusory. And though I can hide my cold gaze and you can shake my hand and feel flesh gripping yours and maybe you can even sense our lifestyles are probably comparable, I simply am not there.
when boys hold u by yr waist and make you feel tiny
when you kiss boys and you can feel their stubble

some people have been sending me really nice messages over the last week and I just wanted to say thank you, I really do appreciate it and I’m sorry I haven’t replied, I’ll try to get to some tonight.
I sometimes find it hard to reply to things but I really do appreciate the concern and caring, and I am okay.
