so sorry to hear, ebin. sending you love!
hell of a day, thank you so much
Please…. take your friends depression/sadness/whatever they’re going through seriously. Go out on a limb and ask them how the fuck they are sometimes…text them, whatever,let them know you know they are alive and thinking about them.
Be there for them as much as you can and let them tell you personally if they need space or for you to back off. Fuck shit being awkward. Who cares.
Get out of your own head. You never know what people are going through.
Your friends, family,chosen family, dates, lovers,acquaintances, ect are people with feelings who will not be around forever. If people matter to you in the slightest, go out of your way to make sure they know that.
To my friend who I lost today, we never hung out as much as we both wanted to and mainly kept in contact through social media. Thanks for the time you made for me when you could, you were so fucking rad.
Anonymous said: Hey, I watched your video on living in portland. Just curious if you have any updates? I'm a black male moving to Portland in the next few weeks and i'm getting nervous with all the things i'm reading. I'm moving from Kansas City which definitely has its racist parts. Are you still living in Portland?
Yo! Thanks for responding to my video, ive been getting a shit ton of feedback on that lately and might do a pt.2 if folks really want me to.
yes im still living in Portland.
If you feel compelled/called to come out here do it!…Seriously.Who knows what the universe might have in store for you personally or whatever.
No i don’t want to be here anymore, but being here has been so so so so so so so necessary for my personal growth, i don’t think id be who i am at all had i not come out to this place on a whim 6 years ago. I can go more into that if you want.
Ive met a bunch of black people who want to GTFO of here as well as some who’d never leave.
The racism and general assholery here is like anywhere else but is extremely passive aggressive and hard for some people to pick up initially. What white folks here don’t understand is how that shit silences POC making it even more racist in a weird way.
