an asian woman has never won the oscar for best leading actress 

the last and only time an asian woman was nominated for an oscar for best leading actress was 79 years ago (and she was white-passing and concealed her race) 

just let that sink in

Today, on Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday, I would like to remind you not

grapeson:

to forget that King’s family pursued a court case against the US in 1999 for assassinating MLK Jr. and WON. That’s a fact that is always conveniently left out of history books. Don’t let them turn him into their own personal puppet doll that says “I have a dream” when you pull the string, please.

Don’t talk to yourself in such a way that if you did so to a friend, it would end your friendship.

If you had a friend dealing with the same things, you wouldn’t berate that person, say, ‘You’re not working hard enough,’ ‘You suck,’ or ‘You’re not as good as [whomever].’ You’d offer your friend encouragement, you’d try to point out all the things your friend did right, and how much progress your friend had made.

You should do no less for yourself.

Be very careful how you talk to yourself. Because you are listening.

Person: But I'm covered in scars.
Jesus: So am I.
Person: People always let me down.
Jesus: I was betrayed too.
Person: I'm always getting insulted and mocked.
Jesus: Persecution happened to me as well.
Person: No one understands me.
Jesus: I understand you and I love you.

I just want to write a bunch of poems about you. Maybe then my heart will be satisfied. Maybe then the fantasy will die.


I don’t need to let procrastination become a thing this early in the year

Or ever for that matter.

With that said, signing off.

Stay focused!
