Now Playing Tracks

  1. Learn to put on your bracelets and zip up your dresses by yourself. There will be times when you will be alone.
  2. Get on a long plane ride. Look out the window. Understand the immensity of our world. Understand your insignificance. Understand your absolute importance.
  3. Press the send button. If you don’t say it now, you never will.
  4. Do not sneer at happiness or roll your eyes at sadness. Be aware that apathy is not healthy.
  5. You are more than the amount of people who want to have sex with you.
  6. That pit in your stomach when he doesn’t text you back, it shouldn’t be there. No one should be able to control you like that.
  7. Shopping is cathartic. Buy the shoes and deal with one-ply toilet paper for a while.
  8. It will get better, but it will never be perfect. Learn to live through the small moments of happiness. When they disappear, remember they will resurface.
  9. I promise that cookie will not change anything (except that it will make you smile).
  10. Please, please, take care of yourself. You are everything to somebody. You are everything to your self. That alone is enough.

Happening Now (10.13.14): Thousands of students from SLU join Ferguson and Shaw protesters, in solidarity with their fight for justice for victims of police brutality. This is a movement in action. #staywoke #fergusonoctober

I’m literally ugly sobbing right now. Had to pull over just to put this post together. More to come when I get back to Florida.

This is what happened to us last night in Shaw. The police were violating our rights all night. We were peaceful. Some of our folks were beaten, one officer stood in front of another to block us from seeing him shoving his baton into a protesters abdomen.

One of our live streamers was sprayed by police for capturing them beating on protesters. Silly me, I thought we would be safe last night because we had legal observers with us from the National Lawyers Guild. NOPE, they got sprayed and arrested too. 17 of our protesters were arrested in total.

The screams, the beatings, the media running away, the tears, us yelling trying to find each other, the sound of them banging their batons on the ground to intimidate us … I will never forget last night. I have not slept since Friday, most of us are still trying to process what happened.

This is just a small piece of what we experienced last night. Ferguson protesters have been living this nightmare every day for the last 65 days, think about that. #Shaw #Ferguson #FergusonOctober

THE UMBRELLA REVOLUTION 

We don’t need any tear gas, we’re crying already.

風雨中抱緊自由。 Brace our freedom among the storm.

It is Day 3 since 28th September 2014, the day Hong Kong Police threw Tear Gas to protestors.

Hong Kong citizens are fighting for democracy to select our own Chief Executive. We don’t want China’s claws on our back and hands on our throat.

Please, Tumblr, reblog and spread the word like wildfire.

SAVE HONG KONG. 

DO NOT LET HONG KONG FALL.

Midday Must Have : Fall 2014 Nakimuli ” Leave it All Behind”

I’ve never had the opportunity to experience fall weather but after seeing Nakimuli’s newest fall collection for 2014 I’m ready to pack my bags and ship off to a colder climate and leave this warm weather all behind !!

Crazy right? Lol I get that all the time, but honestly it has been awhile since I’ve been this astonished . The colours and the patterns have blown me away and the design on their limited  edition reversible crop jacket is just absolutely amazing .

Above shows some of the pieces you will find when you visit their website  ,available in sizes small -3X and ranging from $70 - $300 US.

Which of these items would make you leave it all behind?

We didn’t know that our activism and our peaceful displays would result in guns literally looking down our eyes. Literally looking down our eyes. Guns.
And I had young people who were willing to die. For justice. 
I had a young person — and he’s definitely the example of many young people that I represent who said "I didn’t think I would make it to twenty-one years old so I’m ready to die now. Let’s do it now."

State senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal (@MariaChappelleN) speaks on the Senate floor about the events she witnessed in Ferguson, Missouri in the weeks following the execution of Mike Brown. Senator Chappelle-Nadal was one of many protesters tear gassed for three hours without reprieve by the Ferguson PD.
She has been consistent and unrelenting in her criticism of Governor Jay Nixon — to the point of tweeting him “FUCK you, Governor!” — for his lack of action over the violation of citizens’ constitutional right to peacefully protest, and passionately vocal about the violent ways in which protesters were abused by the police.
Full video of Senator Chappelle-Nadal’s speech is available for download here (.wmv format).
