Now ~conscious and eco-friendly~ white hipsters are jumping on board and pretending like these skills are their own new invention while scolding us for not follow suit, ignoring the fact that they were the very ones that shamed us into forgetting this knowledge in the first place.
does anyone else get really uncomfortable when someone refers to gay people as ‘the gays’? like please stop pushing them into a separate group, they’re just people who happen to have a certain sexuality, you don’t need to segregate them by using the word as a noun

Sometimes, I have dreams about strangers and then I end up meeting them in the future. Back in 2009, my online presence was pretty strong, and I always seemed to focus on online friendships more than my in person friendships. Alex was one of my first online friendships that I had. Maybe they forgot already, but the reason why I started talking to them was because I had a dream about them, and recognized them in a photo from a classmate who had gone to an exchange trip to Japan. I added them on Facebook and to my surprise they added me back. Since then, we started talking, and I will never forget that they were literally the first person who knew about my sexuality. We were both in the same boat, unsure about our identity, or just far in the closet. Somehow, it’s easier to tell strangers about your inner self. I was also a really shy and unconfident person back then, and getting texts and calls from this kid here and there made me really happy.
In 2011, we finally had the opportunity to meet (by making up excuses and stories to my parents) when I drove down to Eugene with my parents for a college tour. Since then we’ve seen each other at least once every year meeting up in Portland and having you over for dinner (which by the way, my parents adore you). Even though we have only met 3 times, it feels like we have met more than that.
I really want to thank this kid. We’ve both grown so much into ourselves and I’m so happy for not only how much we have grown up, but for how far we have come in terms of our queer journey. It means a lot to me that you recognized my struggle with gender/dysphoria and offered to buy me a binder. Honestly that was one of the best gifts I have ever received and really brought a new light into how I understand my spirit and my body. Anyways, thanks for our friendship. I’m so glad we still keep in touch, and that I can call you my friend. And even though we don’t talk as much as we used to, I still value our friendship. <3 I look forward to the next time we meet again.
P.S. one day we will get our rainbow tape and tape our crawling eyeballs back into our sockets.
Oh my gosh Maya, this has me rolling on my bed, LMFAO (I said it), and smiling ear to ear. So many feelings in this, and in me right now, oh I appreciate you so much. Ugh, I don’t even know what to say. I want us to make more memories together, for a really long time.
Heeeeeee! I was so happy that day I couldn’t focus on studying japanese because you were on my mind. You make me smile and I want to make more memories with you too <3
<3 <3 <3 I think about you all the time while I’m practicing kanji, they can be so tough, but I think “I need to write them as beautifully as Maya,” and then I keep going.
Aahaha, that’s so cute! My kanji writing is really not that good. My mom always makes me rewrite them like 40 times when she sees how terrible my writing is. Ahaha. But she also used to do calligraphy so. :P I wish we could study Japanese together!
So today, I memorized over 50 new kanji characters and combinations and it took forever to write them all over and over. It literally took the whole day and I have no idea how I’m going to survive once school starts again because I’m only working on two books simultaneously and once my other book comes, that means I’ll be learning more than 50 kanji characters a day. ><
Worked mass today.
Suffering endures love. The most precious treasure is our heart because God dwells in our heart. Material success only brings us comfortability, not happiness. But the treasure of our heart, Love and Light does.
The truth will set you free.
Omfg where can I find this
