Considering The Hunger Games & What Happens When... →
You would think a car dealership would treat its customers well considering the fact that they are shelling out hundreds of dollars a month. I am completely dissatisfied with the dealership I got my truck from. First they “forgot” to put the order in for my spare key and alarm control last week. How do you forget to do that after a receipt was given? Then, I called them yesterday to...

Why Katniss Everdeen is a Woman of Color →
katnissisoliveskinneddealwithit: “I loved The Hunger Games when I devoured the trilogy in a week (the first book, in a day). As a woman of color (brown, not olive skinned) who grew up in a third world country, the idea of being a revolutionary hero in the world of YA seemed to speak to my childish self. When I found out it was going to be made into a movie, I was so excited to see who would be...
I fell in love with a slightly lifted cherry red ‘07 Toyota Tacoma today. And now my soul belongs to Toyota for the next 6ish years.
Saying Goodbye is Hard to Do.
We’ve been through a lot, fella. You’ve been mine since 2007, but not really — we all know I was your little bitch spending money on you almost every day. We’ve shared a plethora of good times with each other and with my friends. We’ve been through two 360’s on the freeway. You’ve died on me a few times, but I somehow brought you back to life. My partner,...
It is the simple things like taking a nap on a rainy afternoon that makes me happy.
The luxury of thinking.
I am not Catholic (nor do I adhere to any religion at the moment.) Last year I participated in Lent because my close group of friends asked me and another friend (who is Buddhist) if we wanted to join in. I couldn’t think of anything to give up besides rice. So, that’s what I did. I didn’t participate this year because… well, I forgot all about it. As I sit waiting for my...
I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply,...– Pablo Neruda (via etiquette-etc) [sonnet XVII via 100 love sonnets. // an obvious favorite of mine.] (via brownroundboi)

It’s not always a choice. I am wide awake, and I have to get ready for work in two hours. Yup. Hopefully I don’t scald myself with coffee or shower the store with the blender faucet. At least I end my shift before morning ends. Things on my mind: - Oompa Loompia at SUHI on Friday. - Catching up with ballroom dance class by Thursday’s meeting. - Brainstorm for possible LGBT...

Frida Kahlo, Cultural Icon and Queer Trailblazer →
stfubiphobia: bisexual-community: Known for her haunting self-portraits and an existence marked by tragedy and political action, Kahlo was not passive or traditionally beautiful. She was la más chingona of the women of her time (and of ours). Openly bisexual, she had no qualms about declaring her opinion … Still, over a hundred years after her birth, she remains an omnipresent cultural...
