My favorite quote. (via sleepy-bat)
If you’re going to throw out your opinion on the Central America refugee crisis but you don’t want to / aren’t going to critically examine the U.S.’s role in fueling this crisis or the U.S.’s role in the creation and spread of transnational gangs and drug demand and trafficking that the refugees are fleeing
You can sit right the fuck down.
American narcissism is telling immigrants that they should be grateful to live here, when it’s, more likely than not, some form of American interference that destabilized their home nation.
It hit me pretty hard that I no longer have any access to UNC affiliated online services. Wanted to log back onto Sakai to look up an article that talked about a particular reproductive health condition we discussed in one of my classes last semester. For the life of me, I can no longer remember its name and it is pissing me off. Someone posted a link about a health condition similar to it on facebook and it reminded me a lot about the health condition that was discussed in that article. My Sakai username and password is no longer valid, so I can’t access that article or anything else I want :(

On our trip today to the Life and Science Museum with a few Arabic speaking families, the client that I was responsible for transporting brought along two of her sons. The oldest son, who was about the same age that I was when I first immigrated to this country (albeit under completely different circumstances), wrote my name in arabic and placed it on the bulletin board, among other post-it drawing made by other children. We spend some time conversing about our mutual interest in soccer/football; talking about the teams we were rooting for to win the world cup, the players and soccer clubs we fancy, and going through the exhibits and activities we saw during our visit to the museum. He seemed like a really nice kid and I really had a great time hanging out and getting to further know some of the other clients and their families, and also the other staff members.
I somehow saw myself in him, in the sense that I could related with him and remember going through similar experiences and feelings when I was around his age. I hope he continues to transition successfully and adjust well to the new environment.
my history with intimate relationships is unbelievably pitiful so now i’m just like “eh if i die alone it’s whatever oh well i guess” heh
