Another day 7

1/31/2021

  • Wait… there’s people who aren’t sad everyday????
  • Bitches out here begging for a crumb of serotonin… I’m bitches…
  • Ya’ll know I had to bless my bird friends with some pancakes and bread and French fries before the snow.
  • This dude just stopped walking to be like “I hope you FEEL as good as you LOOK” I was like thanks he’s like “I’m just giving credit where it’s due”
  • Ok talk to me nice ❤

  • Anyone who believes crack—or any drug, for that matter—is the major problem faced by marginalized people is either dishonest or naïve, or both. -Carl L. Hart, Drug Use for Grown-Ups

2/5/2021

  • I said to myself, “keep Martin Luther King in the background and God in the foreground and everything will be all right. Remember you are a channel of the gospel and not the source.” -MLK
  • Today is Trayvon Martin’s bday.
  • This is something I wrote about him last February. Right at the start of corona: “Today marks 8 years since the murder of Trayvon Martin”
  • I could never adjust to separate waiting rooms, separate eating places, separate restrooms, partly because the separate was always unequal, and partly because the very idea of separation did something to my sense of dignity and self-respect. -MLK
  • Men often hate each other because they fear each other; they fear each other because they do not know each other; they do not know each other because they cannot communicate; they cannot communicate because they are separated. -MLK
  • The fact that Zimmerman is still alive is so annoying.
  • Like corona do ya thing!! Plz!!
  • I’ve dated one romantic person before… and I also happened to have his baby lol…
  • Ultimately people will unfollow me on IG if I say Kamala is a cop or that I want Zimmerman to die but guess what… Kamala is a cop and I want Zimmerman to die lol.
  • “Weed be enough 4 ya’ll ???” lol me
  • This young chick was just walking down the street with her friends drunk as hell mid-afternoon talking about “hey sexy” lol
  • If alcohol is your drug of choice babygirl you might as well move on
  • When oppressed people willingly accept their oppression, they only serve to give the oppressor a convenient justification for his acts. -MLK

  • Wrote a cute lil story in Spanish today about that girl.
  • It took some editing to make right (and idk if it’s totally right). If I said it out loud originally there would have been hella errors but you’d know what I was saying lol.
  • Gonna do a collection of Spanish stories (after I write more of them).
  • People telling me I got them back into reading… I like that…
  • Another day another unsolicited dick pic
  • I actually wrote about that in my first book. How unsexy they are, even from someone you’re half-dealing with. This one was from some random account following me on IG, so it was some good old-fashioned harassment.
  • Anyway abolish the police
  • & free Britney
