The prison-industrial complex is just a myth…right?

Jesus he didn’t even have us do the damn math. He just said it.

All I’ve been doing is playing banjo.  I don’t know how to do anything else right now.  When I stop I’m swept to you with such force— in your basement, on the bus, brushing my hand across your chest, marvelling in the beauty of the robins after fresh plow.  The only way I can get back to the present is by plucking strings.  I’d rather have you back than master a stupid fucking banjo though..

Step one:

Stop lying to yourself.

6 Days of Rioting and I’m terrified.

On top of a broken heart I’d say I’m at an all time low.

19 sobering confessions from college rape survivors

An estimated 17.7 million American women and 2.78 men have been the victim of an attempted or completed rape. Victims of a sexual assault are three times as likely to suffer from depression, six times more likely to suffer from PTSD, 13 times more likely to abuse alcohol, 26 times more likely to use drugs, and four times as likely to contemplate suicide. Adolescent female rape victims may be over three times as likely to attempt suicide.

The idea of the humourless feminist is an incredibly potent and effective silencer. It is used to isolate and alienate young girls; to ridicule and dismiss older women, to force women in the workplace to ‘join in the joke’ and, in the media, to castigate protest to the point of obliteration.

Me and some bees.

Me and some bees.

What I know is this: Life is short and lonely and mean but there are good things that make it worth living. The idea is to grab those things when they show up and hold onto them as long as you can. Of course you can’t hold them forever, but what can you hold? Nothing. Life is water through wet cloth. It’s all trees and sky passing by a car window, and you can never own any of it, no matter how hard you try and no matter how much you want it. The key is to make your peace with that and have as much fun as you can without hurting anyone. There’s no meaning of life but there is meaning and life, and it’s there waiting for you. All you need is to open your eyes wide enough to see it when it comes along.
