i have absolutely no idea what to do with and am pretty much uncomfortable with and confused by
oh hey, a very accurate way to describe how i feel about (physical) affection
(it’s okay to give me physical affection even if I’m uncomfortable btw because it doesn’t hurt me and I want to get more comfortable with it!!! pretty much if i know you you don’t have ask me if it’s okay JUST DO IT)
A Short Halloween PSA
Hey the thing I reblogged earlier reminded me to mention this:
I can promise all my followers that I do notpost or reblog jump scares, ever, because A) I don’t like them and they suck, and B) I know at least a few of my followers have anxiety in one form or another and I’m not going to be that jerk.
So yes. There will be no jump scares from this blog, just wanted to ease your minds preemptively.
muffinsticks said: I was under the impression that Hispanic meant like Mexican? IDK what i meant was that you dont look Mexican. You definitely look Spanish. But like a lot of mexicans look predominantly spanish, since that area was conquered by spain. So yeah you might be technically mexican even though you look spanish
Hispanic seems to be a very vague term apparently? I googled it after when I made my first response to you ‘cause I was curious myself what it meant exactly
But yeah, now that i know what you meant that makes more sense hahaha. I’m not sure if I look very Mexican, and my mom is very adamant about us being of Spanish descent so idk, i’m leaning more toward me being Spanish and not Mexican.
airyulevelsup said: I have almost the opposite problem. I have never really related to being Indian, so checking off the Asian or south Asian boxes never felt right to me.
I’m not entirely sure what your background is exactly, but I’ve read before that sometimes 1st or 2nd generation children of those who immigrated to America tend to not feel connect or related to their heritage. Like… “American” became their culture i guess?? IDK!!! It’s interesting how we have similar but opposite problems. Tbh, at this point I don’t even know what to check. I just check Caucasian just cause it’s easy heh
muffinsticks said: You don’t look hispanic at all haha
That’s funny that you say that because you’ve told me quite the opposite before?? hahaha I remember talking about how my mom says we’re from Spain and you said that you could see that and that I have features of someone of Spaniard heritage.
Old Scooby Doo Frames KILL ME
It was always the fact they had no whites in their eyes that I hated
matching icons for you and your friends
Sometimes i think about how i used to check the “Hispanic” box under ethnicity as a kid. I stopped around senior year in high school. I used to be very proud of that part of me, but somewhere in time I felt disconnected and felt like my skin was too light for me to be allowed to check that box anymore. I feel too much like a “mutt” I guess.
idkkkkk, sometimes i wish i knew more about myself lineage wise. My dad’s family is a mix of irish and something else?? And my Mom and Grandma can’t even agree if we’re from Mexico or Spain.
Sometimes I get kinda distraught over this hahaa

"Vancouver School Board Introduces Gender-Neutral Pronouns"
"Students and teachers in Vancouver can now use the gender-neutral pronouns "xe," "xem," and "xyr." The move is designed to accommodate students for whom "he" and "she" does not fit or is deemed inappropriate…
"The newly coined pronouns — xe, xem, and xyr — are pronounced to rhyme with the genderless plurals "they," "them," and "their," and all starting with the "z" sound. So phonetically speaking, they’re pronounced "zey, "zem", and "zare.""
Click here to read the full article.
the article doesn’t do the issue justice.
the issue regarded policy change, where the vancouver school board’s (VSB) LGBTQ+ advisory committee re-wrote existing policy to protect staff and students falling on the queer and trans spectrums.
the policy revision includes
-they/them/their and non-traditional pronouns being recognized by the school system
-required used of preferred names and pronouns by all staff and students
-preferred names/pronouns on all school records
-gender-accesible washrooms and change rooms available to those who require them
-disciplinary action taken against those who act in a discriminatory or hateful manner towards students, staff, and families falling on the queer and trans spectrums
the consultation was the longest ever done by the VSB, with over 120 speakers spread across 3 meetings.
the process also resulting in two school board trustees being ejected form their party’s caucus, due their discriminatory actions and arguments.
these are links to stories by vancouver media about the issue
Aaaaahhh, this is pretty much the pronouns I’ve thought of using for myself before!! I actually spelled them exactly how they sounded to me, though. I can deal with them being spelled with an x. Thinking about it now, x does look kinda cooler??
Anyways, this is really cool uwu It would be nice if this caught on outside of the school!
some sketches i did for Bliz last night! I decided to try some new things with the drawings so that’s why they look quite a bit different from my normal stuff and also why they aren’t finished!!!
I’m quite proud of the results uwu I wanna experiment more!
the sticker says “I’m sorry, i was born stupid”
Protests today in Ferguson
#ArrestDarrenWilson, #JusticeforMikeBrown, #BlackLivesMatter, #Ferguson
I am so for this. Literally millions of vehicles travel I-70 every day; maybe it should be blocked off every day until shit gets done. People will sure as hell start paying attention again if the delivery trucks aren’t getting to the Walmarts to stock their fucking Doritos and Mt. Dew.
SHUT SHIT DOWN!! DON’T LET AMERICA FORGET!!!
