Eating left over barrio food everyday for the next week because my meal plan is dying and I need it to last lol.
Something that irks me is when people try to show off to me how much they have to work in their classes for homework assignments and projects for their major when they know I’m a visual artist. Like are you trying to say that I don’t work as hard? Because I do. I just work hard in ways that are different from your major and please don’t tell me art is easy. Not everyone can do art and not everyone is an artist. I spend countless hours working in the studio because I want to produce something worthwhile. Don’t tell me I have the easy way out. Art is hard and requires a certain kind of intelligence and sensitivity that not everyone has. People make me feel like my major is meaningless and that art in general is meaningless but I think it is so important and necessary in this world.And yet us art majors are so invisible especially me who only does traditional art and nothing digital to really live a “successful” life. I get so sad about being the major I am because of all the people that put me down and all that make me feel hopeless and anxious about the future. But I’m fighting, and I’m doing this through my statement of being an artist who doesn’t want to let go of this important side of me. I’m doing this because I don’t want art to disappear from the world.
Me: Oh my gosh, my room is so messy right now
Samantha: >_> Mhm…last time you said it was messy, there was like one tiny scrap of paper on the floor.
Me: Well no, now there’s like more scraps on the floor
Samantha: I’m done with you. LOL
Today I was in Campus Ministry and some Conservative Catholic from outside of Washington called our school to tell us that we are going to hell because our school is not Catholic enough to be a Catholic institution since we have events like the Drag Show where we let men dress up as women, and apparently that’s not okay. My friend who answered the phone transferred the call to someone else, but he hung up and called back again to tell us that it was a typical response of a liberal school to silence the argument. =_= Jesus Christ. I don’t understand why Catholics are hateful when it doesn’t matter. When was the Drag Show at MY university ever a problem to his personal life!? And the bible tells us to Love and God only wants us to be loving so what’s the point of being hateful towards all of us, if you’re only doing the opposite of what God wants. I don’t understand. I can’t believe this happened. Hahahah. Some people are so low. So glad we have an awesome Jesuit priest as a principal who totally supports the drag show and LGBTQ safe spaces on campus.
Over the summer I got to visit Minamisanriku, Miyagi which was one of the cities that got hit the worst. I can’t believe today marks 3 years since the tsunami and earthquake disaster. Stay strong Japan 3.11.11 🇯🇵
A wave of sadness just came over me as I remember the Tsunami disaster that hit Japan 3 years ago today. I remember everything I was doing that day when this happened, it’s haunting. We will never forget. Stay strong Japan. 3.11.11

I really don’t see why people make such big deal out of it. Just wear whatever makes you feel comfortable because there’s nothing sexier than a person who’s comfortable in his or her own style.”
