After a while you learn the subtle difference
Between holding a hand and chaining a soul,
And you learn that love doesn’t mean leaning
And company doesn’t mean security.
And you begin to learn that kisses aren’t contracts
And presents aren’t promises,
And you begin to accept your defeats
With your head up and your eyes open
With the grace of a woman, not the grief of a child,
And you learn to build all your roads on today
Because tomorrow’s ground is too uncertain for plans
And futures have a way of falling down in mid-flight.
After a while you learn
That even sunshine burns if you get too much.
So you plant your garden and decorate your own soul,
Instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.

Israel? I mean, it doesn’t surprise me now that Peña Nieto is in office…
I feel like my head is going to explode! Grad school applications shouldn’t be this hard. School shouldn’t be this frustrating. I should look forward to learning but I dread it. Ugh.

Breast tissue exams should be part of everyone’s primary health care, and many people do self-exams monthly, in between annual doctor visits. The goal of a self-exam is to learn what your breast tissue is like so that you can identify any changes early enough to preserve your health, since some (though not most) breast masses or lumps may be cancerous. Detecting a lump or other change early is your best chance to get successful evaluation and, if needed, treatment.

I saw an excerpt from Warsan Shire’s poem “For Women Who Are Difficult To Love” being shared and I wanted to hear her speak it. And it is so beautiful. (Full text here).
Validate appropriation and ignorance.
Shit white people do: Defend innocent girls from racist attacks based solely on a hairstyle that is almost certain to be seen in a public setting
Reverse racism doesn’t exist and this girl isn’t innocent, she appropriated cultures. Also, dreadlocks are culturally tied. Case closed.
if you can’t afford to get sick this season, this is what you must do:
1. take a clove of garlic, crush it and peel it
2. finely chop it and let it sit for about 10-15 minutes so the allicin (antibacterial/antifungal compound) is activated
3. put the garlic on a tablespoon and pour honey onto the tablespoon
4. if you like cinnamon, sprinkle some onto the spoon of garlic&honey
5. eat it, chew it well and swallow
I know it’s not the most pleasant of tastes but this really helps your immune system. It also helps your hair and nails.
