Movie Quote of the Week: Paris is Burning (1990)
"When someone has rejection from their mother and father, their family, they - when they get out in the world - they search. They search for someone to fill that void."
I don’t understand how someone you haven’t spoken to in three years would have the audacity to text you out of the blue and ask you if you can do his project for him.
It’s one thing to greet someone properly before asking for favors and it’s another thing to be asking someone to do your final requirement for you.
He said that he’s got his hands full of plates and he hasn’t been getting proper sleep for days now. Vehemently shaking my head (in my head), I thought of the million things I could say to turn this favor down.
I recounted my college days wherein I had only an hour of sleep for a whole week because of requirements. I was practically invisible at home because I knew I had things to finish and I do not wish to rely on my groupmates. My face even broke out and developed a crust of acne you could scoop with a spoon (ew wtf but no exaggeration here) due to stress and the consequent hormonal imbalance.
I’ve been through it and I managed to do it all at once. So don’t you tell me you can’t do something because you’re “puyat” or “marami akong requirements sa ibang subject."
Jesus, can’t you even ask me how I’m doing first? Please remove your hooves off the table.
My dad isn’t getting any better.

자꾸만 네가 떠올라, Sinking of you, Daehyun Kim, 2010
The Korean title translates into “i keep thinking of you,” but it literally means “you keep floating up”
and then the English title is “Sinking of you”
so when you think of another person, that mentally woven image will float up to the surface beyond your reach
while you are weighted down by your own obsession
I watched all six seasons of RuPaul’s Drag Race (including All Star Drag Race and Untucked). I’ve also lost my ability to communicate without unnecessarily punctuating my words with “ball” slang, okcurrrrrrr.
The last three months were bad and that is a severe understatement.
Waking up each day as an unemployed Communication graduate, it slowly dawned on me that the world wasn’t an entirely nice and solid of a ground to build plans on. I was too idealistic. I overlooked its cracks until it swallowed my life whole. I’m back with a hammer and a box of rusty nails. Crucify me.
me: mama? could you read me to sleep?
mama: you’ll never be glamour
me: read fa filth yes gawd
My life decisions often begin with “Maybe if I were more/less ____ then…" or end with the same.
