I have fallen out of contact with all if not most of my friends but I dont feel like im strong enough to be vulnerable. things cant just pick up without explaining why I went m.i.a. I honestly thought most ppl would of graduated last year (most have) so u could imagine my shock when I saw ppl I knew. like all I needed to do is make one post on face/book but I havent been on there since 2013.

i don’t want to give to much away, but there’s a scene in girlhood where this black woman is being hit on by a white guy and she just shuts him down so quickly and effectively and i really loved like idjk where this weird idea that black women should be grateful for gross white dude attention (i mean any male attention) came from, but this woman was not having it at all

observant-person Haha, omg Safia! I’m…

i remember her going through a lot of pain but all I can remember is her twirling around in that dress. just twirling and skipping with fabric all around her.
