"Too many guys think I’m a concept, or I complete them, or I’m gonna make them alive. But I’m just a fucked-up girl who’s lookin’ for my own peace of mind; don’t assign me yours."

“The basis of most arguments against trans people is that we are not who we say we are, that we are always and only the gender that we were assigned at birth. And so much of that is about having a sense of certainty around gender, that when you were born with a certain set of genitalia, then that must dictate your entire life, and the reality is that that’s not true. A lot of people are not comfortable with that, because then that means they have to begin to question who they are.”- Laverne Cox
Young Dad Wins Back Custody of Child Adopted Without Consent
26-year-old Jeremiah Sampson waged a three-year court battle that forced him to drop out of college to pay for legal expenses in gaining custody of his child.
Sampson drove five hours to Rolla, Mo., once or twice a week for more than six months to challenge the adoption in court. The adoptive parents threw a towel over the baby’s head in court, refusing to let him look at his birth father.
Born and raised in Coweta, Oklahoma, Sampson had four older brothers, three sisters and a mother who worked two jobs to support them all. He didn’t meet his father until he was 13 and hasn’t seen him much since.
“I would never do that to my own flesh and blood,” Sampson said. “I would never walk away from my own child.”
Sampson is now suing the adoption agency for violating his parental rights by going ahead with the placement even after he objected.

Feeling babely tonight because people that I admire greatly appreciate my awkwardness and my rawness too. They affirm me when I express doubts or question my purpose in a PhD program. Also my reputation seems to precede me. One of my peer mentors said, “I knew about you when I saw a documentary that you were in with other youths. I said, I would only be a mentor, if and only when, you would be my mentee.” I was blown away by this confession!!!
We had a graduate program event called and modeled after Pecha Kucha. Pecha Kucha is a style of presenting information, where people talk with 20 images that show up for 20 seconds on the screen. It was devised in Little Tokyo, Japan by architects, to help them condense their discussions/presentations. I was reassured that I made the right decision to attend the U of A, because my passions and scholarly roots and interests are in Tucson.
Anyway, I am still learning to trust my instincts and listen to my intuition because sometimes I silence myself because I do not feel like I will meet x or y expectations.
I am a continuing developing project. And my life’s magic is radiating, palpitating, and shining as bright as the stimuli in my environments.
P.S. I finaly have a working space, with my vanity mirror that I purchased and will use as my desk. I love it. Next up, the bookcase!!!
My sister is a babe and overall, a warrior womyn!

This is probably the coolest GIF I’ve ever seen.
now there’s some perspective.
I once saw a storm roll like this once. It was beautiful.
The extrovert in me wants to be out partying . The introvert in me wants nothing to do with people right now , just want my book and ice cream…. Ugh to be both intro/extrovert is complicated and then add the being a Gemini … My life is too much. Can I just get a cuddle buddy?
