i love it

thanks i’m a bit sad that the rest of my friends now know i am bisexual because i don’t have anyone else to whom i can tell the story to because they will have all been there

um k like 5 seconds after i published that post the housemate in question knocked on my door and apologized a lot and we hugged and i think things are cool now but it just

i don’t know. i wish it didn’t have to happen at all and now there’s going to be all this tension even though things are okay because she’s still going to try to prove to me how sorry she is and i’m going to keep trying to reassure her how i’d prefer not to hold a grudge against her or make it a big deal anyway because i don’t have the capacity for that and i’m bored of tension. and then there’s the whole thing where i have to go back downstairs again and people are going to try and talk to me and reassure me that they still think i’m normal or whatever. i hate waiting for tension to dissipate, but it’s something that has to happen and it’s boring and it makes me anxious 

my friend came over to my accommodation hall place today and while we were talking she made some offhand comment about how she got off with a girl a few days back and after i came back from walking her home i started preparing my dinner by washing my rice and while i was doing that one of my housemates was like, “ellen is your friend a lesbian” and i was like “no i think she’s bisexual” and another housemate was like “i thought so” 

and i asked “wait what do you mean, did you know she was gay before i told you or what?” and she (i.e. the other housemate) was like “i kinda guessed she was bi” and i said “how” and she said “well she has yoga posters all over her room [wtf?] and when we went there she started talking about threesomes and she just generally seemed like an attention seeker” and i was like i was i didn’t know what to do or say then and i was so overwhelmed and i just ? and in the silence she said, “i like your skirt today” and i just blurted out “thanks i’m bisexual” and then they laughed and i said “no i’m really bisexual” and then there was just silence and i turned back to the sink where i was washing my rice and now i am done washing my rice and i went upstairs to type this all out and i don’t know how to feel like i am just shaking and i ? don’t know how i feel about anything

Map Ranks ‘Power’ of World Passports According to Visa-Free Travel Access.
Being in possession of an African passport and having neverending wanderlust is a tough battle between dreams and reality. But it’s not the high costs of air travel and hotel stays that get to me most, nor is finding an opportune time to leave your life and responsibilities behind for a few days the main challenge, it’s the fact that despite being in a so-called ‘globalized’ world that supposedly brings us all closer together, borders are firmer than ever and not all passports are created equal.
To illustrate this very real and disheartening process of traveling (applying for visas is not only expensive and time consuming, it can be very dehumanizing for many of us), this infographic map originally designed by Rosie Spinks for GOOD Magazine shows which countries have the most powerful passports according to the amount of visa-free access (or visa upon arrival) they have to the rest of the world. 
Who tops the list? The Western European nations of Finland and Sweden, along with the United Kingdom. Second place is tied between Luxembourg, Germany, Denmark and the United States.
As for African countries, Seychelles ranks the highest, followed by Mauritius, South Africa, Botswana, Gambia, Kenya, Lesotho, Namibia and Malawi. Somalia, Eritrea, Sudan, South Sudan and Congo* rank amongst the least in both Africa and the world.
*not sure which Congo this map is referring to.

teacher: holy shit

it’s been a weird night. it’s been a long night, too. maybe i should stop staying up so late, but it’s so hard. the nighttime always magnifies intimacy (and therefore loneliness too, i guess). i want to kiss a girl. and i want to kiss a boy. i stayed up late hoping the girl would ask me for a hug again and bury her face in my neck. and i stayed up late hoping the boy would reach over me for something and brush my arm again. and i wish i didn’t want these things. i did other things too today: i did my laundry, i made coffee with this new vanilla-flavoured organic rice milk i bought and i liked it, i made tofu and i liked it, i started and finished reading the metamorphosis for class, i picked the passage i want to do for my bible commentary, i went to film society to watch brick… but somehow all these pale in comparison when you don’t get as close as you want with other human beings. 

hey lady put your phone down, cancel all operations, tell your friends to cool it / your cover’s blown, i wanna see you alone / … cancel all operations, tell your friends there’s more to you than this

things girls do that I love:

  • offer their friends sips of their coffee drinks without being asked
  • scratch each others back
  • say things like “smell this lotion I bought this weekend”
  • compliment each other’s eyebrows 
  • that thing when they agree with you and their eyes get really wide and they nod their head solemnly 
  • throw out each others gum wrappers or chip bags when they get up
