For Me, Selfies Are A Reminder Of…Happy.
Above are some iPhone selfies from while I was on vacation in California recently. It really helped getting away for a while (and had to do so in June as well; 2014 has been…difficult), because as I discussed several weeks ago, I’ve been going though some terrible times, but received a lot of support and kindness online, which I appreciate since my experience online is mostly dealing with abuse, by far, as you know. The trip was nice (photography, rest, On The Run concert, good food, wine, fun with my sister). Now I am trying to complete this move that I mentioned several weeks ago. Still under stress, but doing better than last month, and focused on that goal.
I’ve talked about the politics of selfies before, but you know there’s something else I didn’t mention in any previous discussions. Sometimes…I need visual reminders of times when/where I was happy. I need to remember that I felt that way. My 35th birthday is coming up so this is especially important to me. So even beyond creation of our own images as Black women (since we are often either invisible and ignored or hypervisible but stereotyped/laughed at in media) and self-esteem etc., I just…like seeing and remembering times when I am happy. Dassit. ❤
Why White people are not coming out against the racism in Ferguson. He is dead on.
I could chill with this dude.
I want to thank this man for telling some serious truth. And he didn’t do it in a way that makes him come off as disingenuous. It’s not patronizing. It’s just honest. We don’t ever get that much out of the people who consider themselves “progressive”. He definitely has the right perspective on it. Plus, I just really like that he’s fired up about it. That gives me hope.
This is the only type of white dude I could ever seriously date.
