Turns out the second dude just came for a chat but how was I supposed to know… Looked like he was gonna join him and they were gonna go through pint after pint and start harassing me…
I just wish I had the resolve to say no when the first old man asked me if he could sit there…. Like I didn’t want him to sit there why did I say yes?? Even though it was a passive yes… No more passive yes. Have to get the hang of the Active no
So they are back. Just stood there talking … Ignoring Me and me absolutely reasonable request.
These are the pints of two men who just decided to sit on that little space I’d been sitting in for like 30 minutes already. Mind you its about 9 am and the pub currently serving breakfast is pretty much empty. First one of them approached and asked me of he could sit in the corner. I saw him with his pint and bleary eyes and thought OK… Uhm I guess so? And then his friend comes a minute later and they start chatting. I just want to quietly read my book and also feel uncomfortable like why do they have to stand/sit there? So I say: would you mind? I am trying to read? And they have a go at me: “how rude, blah blah” so I reply with the obvious answer that the restaurant is empty they could sit anywhere and the bloke lies and says “we were here first anyway!” (Yeah from last night) and I reply with “since when? I was here first!” To that one of them mutters ” let’s go for a fag, these females always….”
Just got my eyebrows done for the first time and when I finally opened my eyes a waterfall of tears spilled all over my face.
At a cafe and the lady sat at the table across me just laughed at me coz of how I chomped my pain au raisin lol

share the following:
you’re not a bad person if there are actual reasons why looking at ferguson stuff makes you terribly anxious or paranoid and im not going to fault you if you can’t. but, if you are humanly able, please reblog the posts on how to help, how to avoid tear gas, how to help pay for legal fees, the vigils, etc., and please, if you have the hd space, download and archive every video/picture of this you can, they are being taken off of social media.
I remember just hitting 18 when I got my first stop and frisk, barely had any facial hair, voice was still cracking. Me and my boys just left a party up my block to go get some food. On the way back, two cop cars stop right on our side and pop out like they just saw who…
The first 2-3 pages provide a good description of the complexity of the nervous system and what role genes play in shaping it and how alterations in genes can increase someone’s predisposition to mental health disorders.

Talked about emotional responsibility this morning with my friend. It felt so good to articulate how men don’t take responsibility for their emotions. They don’t ask themselves why they are feeling the way they do and what they can do about it. No. It’s always: “you should be making me feel better” nah fuck that. Men need to learn some emotional responsibility
