This. song. tho.
Saw this guy at Don’t Tell Mama when I was in NYC. Bought his CD. The Broadway sounding, more lively tracks are what he’s best at. This is my fav.
What makes the non-South Asian person’s use of the bindi problematic is the fact that a pop star like Selena Gomez wearing one is guaranteed to be better received than I would if I were to step out of the house rocking a dot on my forehead. On her, it’s a bold new look; on me, it’s a symbol of my failure to assimilate. On her, it’s unquestionably cool; on me, it’s yet another marker of my Otherness, another thing that makes me different from other American girls.

daily reminder not to reblog missing people posts unless you actually know who the person in the photo is and that they really are missing, there are shitheads out there who look for people hiding from them. an abusive husband found his wife and child through such a post. they were under protected identity but he found them through a missing person post online.
This is why I never reblog missing person posts. Not because I’m an uncaring jerk.
Shit. Signal boosting, I honestly didn’t think about this before.

did I mention that I give up
I’m starting running because it doesn’t take a lot of time but it expends a lot of energy, and I’m tired of my doctors telling me I’m too fat
I’m tired of not being considered sexually attractive, fuckable, let alone dateable
I’m tired of not fitting in not being…
You don’t have to do anything to fit in or make yourself more acceptable to other people. Your doctors should focus on your health and not how you look, they’re just bullshitting you because it’s easier for them to just look at you and your weight and make a fast judgement than actually evaluate your health and they just wanna get paid. :/
I mean, running is good for you but, do it for you. Not to please assholes. I know. it’s all easier said than done….seeing the average person at school also makes me want to turn into a rabbit and subsist on salad sometimes …but that’s kind of a miserable existence.
Just please don’t half starve yourself, whatever you do.
And btw, you’re gorgeous already!!
