digitaldetective yeah it’s just been making me mad lately
like recently he’s been saying stuff thats a lil mean and the other day we we’re talking about it to him when i told him ‘you are a grown adult and youre kind of putting down kids dude’ and he said ‘aren’t you an adult?? Oh yeah i forgot you’re not’
Like why
Why, when we were trying to discuss something that upset us, did he need to try to criticize me??
Why are you shifting blame on me??
Wtf

Do you even celebrate the day of the dead?

Dia De Los Muertos and You

kristineirl:

dear people of tumblr, i just want to let you know that this is not okay:

it really irks me when i see people who are outside of my culture/race/heritage/etc use day of the dead makeup and such as halloween costumes. i don’t attempt to speak for everyone, but i know i’m not alone in this.

dia del los muertos is not yours to borrow when it becomes convenient.

what it is: two day long celebration (november first and second) of life and death. it’s not a “trendy” or “creepy” holiday, it’s a serious time of the year in which we come together with our families and respect our dead. we visit graves, we make alters, we make offerings, we make delicious bread and sugar skulls, we respect our loved ones through our actions of affection.

what it is not: halloween.

when you paint your face in this way it is offensive.

there are many reasons why face paint is used during dia de los muertos, and making a fashion statement is absolutely not one of them. it is believed that people paint their faces in lieu of carrying their loved one’s skull to honor (and sometimes even to summon) them. there are also traditions of becoming a live skeleton as a means to mourn the dead while recognizing that you too shall die. 

when you paint your face like a sugar skull to look cute and cultured, you are mocking my mexican traditions.

going through the dia de los muertos tag i see so many folks painted up like it’s the hip thing to do, and it’s not, not at all. i get that you are inspired~ by it, but you are actually doing a disservice to an entire group of people when you make yourself up like that.

so anyway, i just wanted to let you guys know.

tfw your families native country doesn’t consider you as one of them/thinks your “fake” and thus labels you as a dark knock-off of a white american

IM GOING TO PUNCH OUT ALL THESE GROSS ASS NERDS HOLY SHIT

LIKE THEY’RE MAKING RACIST JOKES AND I JUST WANT TO HURT THEM

some gross dudes in the area i like being in saying the Quran is basically a re-written bible

today got really weird at one point bc my mom was getting after me a lil to make sure my dog doesn’t fuck up the new couches they’re getting when they joked about kicking my dog if she did

my sister got into a fight with them about it then they said they’d get rid of her instead. she got made bc the dog is important to me and helps me out when i’m in my intense emotional moods. My sister said that if they got rid of the dog they’d lose me and they just keep saying ‘the couches are new though” or something like that and my sister got really mad. i wasn’t feeling much that day so i didnt feel anything when it was happening it was just kind of weird??? shrugs

You know when you need to practice speaking a language but you don’t want to speak it in front of native speakers because you’re worried they will judge you for your poor grammar skills and limited vocabulary
