London Grammar - “Wasting My Young Years”
i get so flustered whenever interviewers ask me ‘so why do you want to work here?’ because the first thing that pops into my head everytime is ‘i need your money to survive, you capitalist pig’ but thats not the appropriate answer
I’m not being nice anymore.
“According to Greek mythology, humans were originally created with four arms, four legs, and a head with two faces. Fearing their power, Zeus split them into two separate beings condemning them to spend their lives in search for their other halves.”
~Plato’s The Symposium.
How many times will I reblog this? “Always.”
We did it at school. The myth also says that the pairings could be male/female, male/male or female/female (just sayin’)
I’m so distraught today that I walked into the men’s bathroom in the tech center hahahahahahha I literally hate myself today
It’s 10:13 and I just came back from seeing Lorde.
The past few weeks have been stressful and depressing. I’ve been finding it hard to stay positive with everything going on. But let me tell you. When Lorde went on stage, I was so overwhelmed with happiness. I didn’t even think I liked her that much (although I knew I adored her music) but- oh my gawd, I was bawling like a fangirl, the minute she started singing (and all of the other times). I’m not sure whether it was because I love her so much, or because I realized that she was real. I just want to say, I haven’t cried of happiness for a very very long time. Tonight was probably one of the best nights of my life. I’m so happy.
In the middle of her performance she said something that really got to me. She was talking about the meaning behind her song “Ribs” and how she had realized how scary growing up was, and said “…when I’m out here, it feels like everything is going to be okay” (and then I proceeded to cry some more). That’s how it felt tonight. Even though life isn’t amazing. Even though I miss him and school’s more stressful than ever. Even though I haven’t been okay. Seeing her live made everything feel that way.
I met amazing people and I experienced the best night of my life.
I hope I never forget this.
POLICE BRUTALITY/TERRORISM STRIKES AGAIN: Witnesses Say A Utah African-American Man Was Running Away From Police When They Shot & Murdered Him [TW: Racism, Ethnocentrism, White Privilege]
An attorney for the family of the 22-year-old black man who was fatally shot by Utah police last week says the evidence suggests he was running away—contradicting earlier reports that he had “lunged” at the police officers.
Darrien Hunt attracted police attention Wednesday morning outside Saratoga Springs when he allegedly began walking around with a samurai sword. His family later described the sword as a “harmless 3-foot souvenir sword with a rounded edge” purchased at a gift shop, the AP reports.
Hunt was reportedly shot at least four times and died on the street outside a Panda Expressrestaurant.
Police initially claimed they shot him after he “brandished the sword and lunged toward the officers with the sword,” Utah County Chief Deputy Attorney Tim Taylor told reporters.
But Hunt’s mother—and some witnesses—say otherwise.
"They killed my son because he’s black. No white boy with a little sword would they shoot while he’s running away," Susan Hunt told the Deseret Times. “Those stupid cops thought they had to murder over a toy. This is my baby. This is my family. And they ruined my family.”
According to the LA Times, there’s evidence that suggests the shooting may not have been warranted:
According to Salt Lake City attorney Randall K. Edwards, an independent autopsy conducted Saturday at the behest of Hunt’s family showed Hunt had been shot “numerous times,” none from the front.
"This is consistent with statements made by witnesses on the scene, who report that Darrien was shot to death while running away from the police," Edwards said in a statement provided to the Los Angeles Times on Sunday. "It would appear difficult, if not impossible, to reconcile these facts with the story released by the Utah County Attorney’s Office that Darrien was lunging toward the officers when he was shot. We continue to hope that a full investigation will reveal the whole truth about this tragedy."
The LA Times does note, however, that Edwards declined to identify the pathologist or provide reporters with a copy of the report.

"To help the Hunt family with funeral expenses, a fund has been set up at the American First Credit Union called the “Darrien Hunt Fund” for donations."
The memorial service is tonight and I really don’t get how or why I came to class today. There’s no point in me being here because I can’t concentrate on anything at this point.
