Fuck The Bullshit

Ethereal currency This is a place to go to be celebrated, to be affirmed, to be empowered. I am committed to working to reflect the truth of life in words, images and ideas that uplift and empower, rather than confine and bring us down. My influences come from an array of sources. I don't want to be confined to just one thing~ Inspired by Constance C.R. White's NPR Interview and Grooveeffect mission Follow Me on Pinterest

I want us to last,

I don’t wanna have a great, amazing couple of months and then all of a sudden its over. I don’t want to experience the feeling of being lost, confused, and hurt all over again. I wanna be with you. And I want us to last, no matter how hard any situation is, no matter what/who comes between us.

And I cried. For myself. For this woman talkin’ about love. For all the women who have ever stretched their bodies out anticipating civilization and finding ruins.

ACTUALLY, the term was APPROPRIATED. it originally was used to describe BLACK YOUTHS OF THE JAZZ CULTURE. it stemmed from “hep cat” to “hepster” to “hipster.”
the definition of what a hipster is changed so much throughout the coining but all in all: WHITE PEOPLE APPROPRIATED THE TERM AND THE CULTURE.

Please reblog this version y’all.

Usually when people are sad, they don’t do anything. They just cry over their condition. But when they get angry, they bring about a change.

Precisely.  This is even more true now.  We’re more interested in displaying our pain than actually stopping our pain.  That’s why we have a million blogs dedicated to commiseration and very few dedicated to organizing and taking action (attaching tangible consequences to us being violated).  It’s tedious waiting for the sadness to become anger.  Too many sad people, not enough angry people.
