I’ve realized a few things recently… Tumblr is my way of getting my thoughts out of my head. I don’t have a large number of friends, and there are things I think that I don’t want to share with them. I have to get them out of my head, however, and into the universe. In light of this revelation, here we go.
My mom died two years ago today. I’m still numb from it. I’ll never get over it. I miss her every day. These are statements of certainty and absoluteness, at least in my life. I have to work tonight. My solution to this is to make a playlist of her favorite music, and enjoy it while working. I’m going to make swedish meatballs for dinner. I’m going to tie dye, and know that it makes me happy like few other things can. I’m going to hug my dad and tell him I love him, because I do.
Give me your best today, Universe. I can take it.
“I think it is right I am paid the same as my male counterparts. I think it is right that I should make decisions about my own body. I think it is right that women be involved on my behalf in the policies and decisions that affect my life. I think it is right that socially, I am afforded the same respect as men.”
I really hate the fact that almost everyone on my mom’s side of the family hates my dad. He matters to me, and they should still respect him, if only because I wouldn’t be here without him. I have one aunt that cares about him, and even she dissed him this weekend. It really hurts me.
Do you miss me like I miss you? If you do, can you let me know somehow? I mean, I just want to know if I’m alone in this, or if you’re here in this shitty place, too. I don’t want to be alone.
I really want to watch Pocahontas right now.
