IT’s time for a nap probably
I’m sad today and I’m gonna go draw things that aren’t my homework, and try to forget I’m in college and have responsibilities.
Today I am grateful for friends cause sometimes when I’m having the worst day, I’m reminded that I actually have more friends than I give myself credit for. I’m not a monster with no social skills. There are people who like me.
shoutout to kids of colour like me who don’t speak, read, write, or understand their native language
while this isn’t to say english-speaking people don’t have privilege over those that don’t speak english, i know it can be really hard at times
we gotta sit out of family conversations because we have no idea what anyone’s saying
we get called whitewashed because we can only speak / read / write in english
we’re scolded by our older family members for not speaking the language and are made fun of when we mess up on pronunciation
that doesn’t make us any less of who we are
we are still valuable members of our culture
we’re not “whitewashed” or any other bullshit anyone tries to throw at you
you are still wonderful and amazing and your culture is yours to claim
I’m mentally and emotionally exhausted for really no good reason, and I want to go home.
