Now Playing Tracks

Just found out that my grandma has Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. Because of her age, and because she has congestive heart failure, they can’t give her any treatments for it. She has between a few days and a few weeks to live. I’m stunned. I can hardly believe it. My lovely, classy, sweet, cheerful grandma.

Happy Black History YEAR!

Greatness.

loving how my old history teacher talked about them like a terrorist group

boost me up

Wow okay so for those skimming, there’s a memo up there from THE DIRECTOR OF THE FBI that sets a mission to LIE about the good things the Black Panthers were doing, spread rumors of them being terrorists, and terrorize the communities supporting them.

If you think the Black Panthers were terrorists and you’ve never heard of the community-building, it’s because there was a literal government conspiracy to make you and people 45 years ago think that way.

i’m reblogging again (bolding mine), because people need to fucking know this. especially white americans. 

On Myers Briggs

simpldlites:

So I was thinking about the typing and functions of Myers Briggs, categorizing people into 1 of 16 types and how the primary, secondary, tertiary, and inferior functions work together within the person. I understand that most of us are not 100% extroverted or introverted, sensing or intuition,…

Yeah, I’m about done with trying to type myself (or anyone else, for the matter) for now. I’ve analyzed the whole thing (and myself) to death, and I’m coming to feel more strongly than before that the MBTI really does not give one a full picture of a person. I have strong feelings, I am affected by the people around me, but I also have firm values, no matter what the people around me think. Sometimes I like science and math. Other times I like hearing about someone’s life and feelings. Sometimes I want to be around people, sometimes I am tired of people. And figuring out my type and my mom’s type will not somehow magically mend all of our differences, though it can help us understand how the other thinks. Maybe I’ll come back to the MBTI after a while. For now, I am all Myers-Briggs-ed out. 

asdlkfghasdlkfjgh so I posted a Psychology Today article about how women are under more stress than men particularly as they are expected to do all the traditional ‘male’ stuff (bringing home the bacon) but still expected to do all the traditional ‘female’ stuff, too (cooking the bacon) and it’s not good or fair, and my little brother comments like “BUT GENDER ROLES ARE GOOD” and my mother-in-law likes his comment. -_- I CAN’T EVEN. I CAN’T.
