I was just making a new playlist on my iTunes since I bought some new music, and after about 20 minutes of dragging and dropping and trying to get the songs to flow correctly and convey the story I wanted, I realized that I was maybe being a little obsessive about a playlist I’m probably only going to listen to while cleaning my apartment.
It’s only been December for 2 days and I’m already over Christmas. I’m especially over the people who are telling me I’m a Scrooge because I’m not going to decorate.
I tried that trick today where you chew gum while chopping onions so you don’t cry and it worked! Then my mom came home and I said, “Hey Mah I’m chopping onions and I’m not crying, know why?” And without even looking up from the mail she was opening, she said: “because you’re dead on the inside.”
I had to go to Target today to get some moisturizer that I can only find there, and I saw something that really grossed me out. This woman was wearing a shirt that said something like “I’m a Black Friday shopper and I’ll push and shove and grab things if you get in my way.”
Like, really? I know that this is the only time that some people can afford to shop for Christmas, but this woman was basically telling people she was willing to be an asshole to get a good sale. I mean, thanks for the warning? I guess? But it was really off-putting.
Oh my god fucking kill me it’s going to cost me $1,500 to get my car fixed. Way to go out with a really shitty bang, 2013.
ally is not an identity category
ally has never been an identity category
ally will never be an identity category
at best it’s something you choose to live into daily without expecting accolades
at worst it’s a fiction invented to recenter discourse around the “good” members of an oppressive class rather than on the marginalized and the systems that marginalize them
fuck ally week
Hey all, I’m sorry to ask, and I know times are tight for everyone with the holidays coming up, but… Aaron had to miss a few days of work during this pay period due to diverticulitis flair ups, and we have just enough to pay rent and a few other bills, but nothing left over for groceries or gas at all. I owe money back to my bank for a loan that helped us get through this month, and can’t draw anymore at the moment.
If you can spare anything, it would be amazing. We’ve not even been able to begin thinking about Christmas yet, and are just trying to have enough to feed us and the two boys that live with us, and to keep gas in our tanks to get us to work.
My PayPal is located on my blog. If you could maybe reblog this, that would help a lot, too.
I’m truly sorry to ask—and next year, once our finances get straightened out (we’ll have almost $400 extra a month, it’ll be like winning the lottery) we’re definitely going to pay all the kindness that’s been shown to us forward. We just need to make it through December… :(
Please boost if even if you don’t have anything to give, maybe someone who does will see this.
