How

What makes me me? What do I want to come back to after a long fucking terrible day? What will I hold close to my heart when all the means of the earth vanish into thin air? How will I know I am at my safe place when thunders roar and the wind howls? 

I’ve been losing more and more of myself in the insanities of the world. I no longer know what truly makes me happy, and what I truly value. They all somehow got lost in the fire of raging internal war. 

So what next?

Britain (rightfully) wants nothing to do with these sexist American Apparel ads 

American Apparel’s latest ad campaign has just been banned in the U.K. — the sixth time ads for the company have been prohibited in less than three years.
On Wednesday, the U.K. Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) announced that it is banning American Apparel ads because they are “gratuitous and objectified women, and were therefore sexist and likely to cause serious and widespread offense.”
It’s not the first time they sold clothes with sex | Follow micdotcom


American Apparel Ads: So fucking over-sexualised.
Good job old man Britain. Sometimes, amidst the crazy things you like and do, you still have a pretty sane brain in there somewhere.

Bedtime Stories…

It really is funny how home is where my insecurities unravel themselves when I pine to be here when I am not. I was labeled a ‘long-lost friend’, and I don’t really know how to feel about it. I am terrible at keeping in touch over distance, I am fully aware, and I feel and maybe I even know that I am becoming less and less important to my old friends. So I don’t really matter all that much to anyone in particular, and I continue to float in and out of circles that allow me to stay for just a little while. I am starting to deal with this, and kind of interested to see where life takes me in 5 or even 10 years time. The possibilities are endless.

I find myself scrolling through the pages of social media too much lately. It is something that affects me, when I can be just so unwilling to participate in life’s social circus. So tis I promise myself, to not be so preoccupied by the digital life, others and mine included.

"There are currently 7,000 languages spoken around the world, with one dying off about every two weeks. Now researchers say that 25% of the world’s languages face extinction in the next few decades, and there’s a surprising reason behind it — economic development."

And they’re taking a lot along with them  (via micdotcom)

I always wondered whether economic development really is the answer to all humanity, it might even be the exact opposite of what we really need to do. Ironically, I study it, full time, willingly. 

As countries develop and join in the long succession of integrating with the rest of the modern world, cultures and practices of old are lost. This matters because we risk becoming carbon copies of one another, every city a mirror image of its sister the other side of the earth. What will we use to define our unique identities when multinational corporations stamp their signs in every corner of the earth, when we forget our own native languages, when we throw away our customs and traditions?

Certain nationalistic laws such as ones implemented to protect the languages may not be such a bad idea after all.

I’ve always wondered if it was just me that felt fearful of being catcalled, particularly when I am walking down a street without company. People are starting to speak up and I find that I am not alone in feeling this way, however the first thought that comes to mind is that maybe there exist a misunderstanding between them and us. Maybe there are genuine compliments and we are just succumbing to paranoia and sensitivity.

This mindset is the result of my culture, my race, my society. My gender.

For 15 straight years, for 60 consecutive majors, that’s what Roger Federer has done.

"I’m a bit surprised that I’ve never missed one."

Not since 1999. Not since he was 18. That’s the last time he missed a major.

Pretty darn amazing. I think the way he has kept himself relatively injury is a great feat in itself.
