Do not call me perfect,

a lie is never a compliment.

Call me an erratic

damaged and

insecure mess.

Then tell me that you

love me for it.

This guy is awesome and FAST. You can tell he really gave it his all. Runners always inspired me… they’re like, “I don’t care if my muscles burn and lungs pump battery acid, I’m going to run some more.”

The rape culture in my school is quite problematic. To find that three of my friends were raped during their time at Teachers College is not only horrifying, but very bothersome. Those three girls were just my friends from school. I can’t even imagine how many people were raped outside my circle of friends. The boys who took advantage of these girls were boys I knew from classes and social events. They were boys who held high positions in committees and organizations. They were boys I found to be unthreatening. So terrifying to think that I could have easily been their victim. So disturbing to think that that could have been me. My friends were questioned for three hours before the authorities decided to do anything about this. Just imagine talking about something so distressing for three hours to a stranger. Fortunately for me, I have never been raped. But I can’t even begin to imagine the trauma and inner torment it brings. 

After hearing about Emma Sulkowicz’s protest at Columbia University a few weeks ago, I felt really angry and disappointed with the societal attitude towards rape. The optimist in me does believe justice will be served to anyone who raped someone and got away with it or denied it ever happened. Dr. Bonanno, a brilliant professor who studies loss, trauma, and emotions, compared a woman being raped to a man going into war. It’s fucking traumatic. Anyone who tries to normalize rape by arguing that it’s pervasive needs a serious wake up call. I’m so proud of the people who can speak up about this issue and not turn a blind eye. I’m putting TC on blast. It would be smart of them to redeem themselves by taking firm action.

Above all else, we choose to stay. We choose to fight the darkness and the sadness, to fight the questions and the lies and the myth of all that’s missing. We choose to stay, because we are stories still going. Because there is still some time for things to turn around, time for surprises and for change. We stay because no one else can play our part.

Fuck you if you love a car for its paint job
Love you if you love a car for the road trips
Show me the miles and your arms and the pink scar
Where the doctor had to pull out all the bone chips
Cuz you were pressing on the gas just a bit hard
Right in the moment where the road curved a bit sharp
And when you woke up, somebody was unclipping your seat belt
and pulling you from the open window of your flipped car

Watsky, Sloppy Seconds

I like this metaphor.
