I restricted a lot today and I haven’t been sleeping v much and I’ve watched a lot of elementary and now think a serial killer is trying to kill me rn. I get these intense paranoid bouts where on one hand I know no ones trying to kill me but on the other hand that is exactly why I’m going to die because I try to ignore my “instinct” even tho that “instinct” is in fact a paranoia and has been proven to be so over the last prob 10-15 years I have had it

is is bad if i ~*like it tho*~
it’s ~good for me~ is it ~good for u~
so i dont technically need to start really thinking about this till next year but
instead of majors my school has “questions” which basically means i have to come up with a question in my 2nd year then i will spend the next 2 years trying to come up with an answer
ive been thinking something like “how is culture embedded in language” - id get more specific into it but thats where id start thinking about it anyway
that way i could justify it as an english/linguistics major possibly
but im really thinking about just fuck that, i want to talk about dissimilation, diasporic sorrow, i want to focus on that, even tho it wont help me get a job, i think this is what i want to do
i dont know
"Art is’ Mimi Yoon
For international artist mimi yoon, there is no concrete definition for art. to her it is simply that “art is.” Her artwork vibrates with tangible and sensual beauty and honesty. it subtly allures then climaxes to demand attention and is immediately unforgettable. Mimi has a bfa in graphic design from California state university long beach, and has founded an art academy for youth and mentored for 10 years before she started to paint her passion. When not painting, mimi can be found curating art shows and contributing to local charities, with the goal of using the arts to bring raw honest humanity into the realm of community.
Mockingjay spoilers below.
I don’t think romance really belongs in the Hunger Games trilogy,* but if I had to ship something, it would be Katniss and Johanna. At first it just seemed appealing to me because they’re both headstrong, fearless women, but the more I think about it, the more it makes sense.
Compare this ship to Katniss/ Gale and Katniss/ Peeta. Katniss and Gale seem like a good match because Gale inspires passion, emotion, and motivation in Katniss, and the fact that they’re childhood friends who have both lost their fathers gives them a certain understanding of each other that other people don’t—and can’t—have. However, this ship ultimately doesn’t make sense because they lose that last aspect within each other, not to mention that Katniss believes him responsible for Prim’s death (although I do not, but that’s another matter).
It also makes sense that Katniss would choose Peeta (as she does) because, unlike Gale, Peeta understands the trauma of what it was like to be in the Games, and while romance can’t cure PTSD, it makes sense to want someone who is understanding, stoic, and reliable, so I can respect that choice in that sense. Peeta’s relationship with Katniss, however, is born out of a lie, a survival tactic, and ultimately I felt as if there was no real emotion in it—just another way of depending on each other to survive.
Johanna, on the other hand, offers the best of both worlds. Johanna is outspoken, passionate, emotional, and honest (many traits which Katniss loved about Gale, as well as being the best he could offer as a love interest), as well as understanding of pain, trauma, and evil (the best of what Peeta offers). With Peeta (or had she chosen Gale), I feel that Katniss was missing out on something important, even fundamental, in her relationship, but this is not so with Johanna. Add to this the fact that in Mockingjay they become roommates and close friends, it seems to me to be the only ship that makes sense.
*except to show the theatricality of it, as well as to show that we, like the Capitol, can miss the bigger issues because of it, but that’s now what this post is about
Have I told y’all yet that Doc Martens were created by a nazi
and popularized by neo nazis
that the sex pistols and many other punks loved using nazi iconography as fashion
and that Joy Division(who are not Jewish)named themselves after Jewish women who were forced into sex slavery during WWII?
Well, now you know.
