*sigh*

watching a movie on netflix, Palm Trees in the Snow, wanted to know where Bioko is, looked it up, found pictures of monkey meat along with the search (thats what they eat), saw a picture of a little boy with his neck cut open and a clever next to him, the caption from the website said something about ni**ers, didn’t bother reading the rest…

i cant even search for pictures on the internet with out finding some sort of racialized violence.

then as i continued watching the movie one of the lines was, you wont be able to tell the black people apart, they’re all like sheep

there’s more going on in my head about this, i’m just tired of this

Definition LookUp: Occupational Burnout

 

More frequently, economic values are placed ahead of human values. The phenomenon is more likely when a mismatch is present between the nature of the job and the person doing the job. A common indication of this mismatch is work overload. It involves doing too much with too few resources, going beyond personal limits.

What I’m going through right now.

I would give my thoughts and reflections but I’m actually too exhausted to do so at the time…

Communication: The Most Important Relationship Goal to Have

Unwasted Mind

You know if there’s one thing I’ve come to learn about human beings is we are extremely complex creatures. There are so many confusing scopes to our own nature that half the time we don’t even know who we are, where we are going, or what we truly want in life. One minute we want a successful career, one minute we want more recreational time, the next moment we’re searching for the perfect mate, and days later we just want to be left alone. When it comes to human beings and our inconsistency with our own emotions, its safe to say much of the time we have no fucking clue what it is we’re doing; plain and simple.

For these reasons is why relationships are so damn hard. There’s a scene in the movie “Hitch” with Will Smith and Eva Mendes during the speed dating scene, where they’re in a…

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie says likability is bullshit—and she’s 100% right

Quartz

That women care about being liked because society rewards them for it is hardly news. Women who push for what they want are routinely judged for it and called bossy. Being liked and being successful just don’t appear to go hand in hand.

Or perhaps being liked doesn’t matter. As Nigerian writer Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie points out, in her acceptance speech for a Girls Write Now award, changing one’s behavior to conform to expectations is a form of dishonesty.

I think that what our society teaches young girls, and I think it’s also something that’s quite difficult for even older women and self-professed feminists to shrug off, is that idea that likability is an essential part of you, of the space you occupy in the world, that you’re supposed to twist yourself into shapes to make yourself likable that you’re supposed to hold back sometimes, pull back, don’t quite say, don’t be…

Definition LookUp of the Day: LOOT | Thoughts & Reflections

…because of the events of this “Thanksgiving Holiday” week of 2014, lets have a look at the word

loot

spoils or plunder taken by pillaging, as in war

anything taken by dishonesty, force, stealth, etc.

to despoil by taking loot; plunder or pillage (a city, house, etc.), as in war

so, certain people wanted to be pissed about the looters in Ferguson

collectively speaking many are still pissed about the past looters of America. I’m talking about the original looters who took this land away from the Native Americans.

If you feel comfortable with this you have too much privilege.

HappyThanksgiving?
