1. Sometimes you’ll be like, “HEY EVERYONE LET’S DO SUSHI AND DRINKS AND FUN STUFF TOMORROW NIGHT!” but then tomorrow night comes and you regret everything as you try to weasel your way out of plans that you created. You resent 24-Hours-Ago-You for being so enthusiastic.

I feel an overwhelming sadness, as I should, thinking about the recent events in Ferguson. Remembering all of the Black teen lives that have been lost, and as many that have happened recently, make my eyes well up. Where is our safety? What about our rights? As far as we’ve come, these events make it seem as though my people have not been allowed to truly progress at all. This is upsetting and baffling. I weep for my people.
