It’s important to make friendships that are deeper than gossiping and drinking and smoking and going out.
Make friends who you can go get breakfast with, make friends you can cry with, make friends who support your life goals and believe in you.
I hate that feeling when you’re not necessarily sad, but you just feel really empty and every little thing gets to you and everyone that talks to you makes you angry and you want to punch everyone in the face
Today has been a bit of a nadir ((fitting sat word for the situation at hand AND name of an awesome friend))
What train do you want to take? my date asks. I don’t answer, because I have no idea where we are. It’s Halloween 2011 and we’re going to Brooklyn Bowl to see Donald Glover, the writer/actor/comedian touring the country with his buzzy new album, Camp. I am told that Donald performs under the computer generated rap name Childish Gambino. Neither my date, nor I, can imagine a day two years in the future where hundreds of thousands of people will actually be anticipating the release of his third album, Because the Internet. We have just come from hearing Angela Davis speak about Black women, writing, and using our creativity to battle oppression.
SHAKE YOURSELF BY THE SHOULDERS AND TELL YOURSELF THINGS WILL BE OKAY
slowly weening myself off of social media and broadcasting every mundane but nonetheless—I felt/ feel so content when I woke up from a night of deep sleep and now, netflixing and curled up on the couch ahhhh (-:
i’m at the college consistently ranked the most difficult/work-heavy school in the country and everybody i’ve talked to, even the ones who are in about ten clubs with hours of commitment each week, say things like “junior year (of high school) was worse” or “i’m so glad i don’t have to apply to colleges, that was a nightmare”
lots of love to all my hard-working high school buddies. take care of yourself, and understand that your stress is legitimate but it will get better
