fucking canon.


you don’t even have to qualify a statement with “within the canon” - it’s just assumed - which is disgusting.

you can nod to the canon knowingly all you want - but you’re not doing anything about it, or recognizing the function it serves, or what it means to be a part of the institutionalized/thorough dissemination of privilege of thought and language.


- spent 3 or so hours on the floor of my room trying to get my body to contort into different acrobatic poses.

- sucked at being a customer service person at my customer service job

- had to run out of Poetry class because my laptop started spitting fire and screaming in robot

- gave some love to the filthy stray English House cat for a bit - which is kind of a plus, I guess.

- finished my final play for playwriting !!!

- refrained from eating the last apple juice box in my fridge

- smiled at the newly accepted students who were nervously approaching the coffee machine.

And you tried to change, didn’t you? Closed your mouth more. Tried to be softer, prettier, less volatile, less awake… You can’t make homes out of human beings. Someone should have already told you that. And if he wants to leave, then let him leave. You are terrifying, and strange, and beautiful. Something not everyone knows how to love.

Évolution inversée

(via lost--intheclouds)

The daily routine of most adults is so heavy and artificial that we are closed off to much of the world. We have to do this in order to get our work done. I think one purpose of art is to get us out of those routines. When we hear music or poetry or stories, the world opens up again.
