Literary Confession: I HAVE to own the books I read. I just have to. It’s a compulsion. If I read a book and cannot keep it, I die a little inside.
exactly how i feel!
my views on drugs and alcohol?
Drugs: certain drugs like cigarettes (if that even counts as a drug…) and like hookah (hypocritical, but only because ive done it before..so yes im admitting that the only reason im okay with it is because ive done hookah before) but like those i think are okay…
weed isn’t a hardcore drug, it’s certainly not a long suicide either. It’s better for you than cigarettes honestly. And drinking isn’t as bad either (but marijuana is less harmful).
The awkward moment when people don’t know anything about drugs and formulate opinions about them, wompwomp. I also love when people make addictions sound like you can just wake up one day and be like Yup gonna stop doing this ish now…Yeah that’s a nice world you’re livin in lmao.
I think that America needs an honest discourse with itself. This is the greatest country in the world… by default. You know what I mean? But we could actually be the greatest country that ever existed, if we were just honest about who we are and what we are and where we want to go, if we learned to have that discourse. Things like racism are institutionalized, they’re systemic. You might not know any bigots, you feel like, “Well, I don’t hate black people, so I’m not a racist.” But you benefit from racism, just by the merit of the color of your skin; there’s opportunities that you have, you’re privileged in ways that you may not even realize, because you haven’t been deprived in certain ways. We need to talk about these things in order for them to change.
