God bless all the people my age with babies cause Idk how yall do it. I can barely be responsible for my damn self. I forgot to mail in my renewal form or w/e so my health insurance has been terminated for almost a month now and I ain’t eeen know it til I tried to fill this ‘script. Adulthood, how do I do it?
One of my biggest pet peeves on Tumlbr: Whenever someone makes a post that says something like “Dark skinned women are beautiful” or “Protect our lil Black girls” and y’all jump in with “Don’t you mean ALL women?” (Sighs). We don’t break into your house and put seasoning in your food, so why you gotta invade a space specifically created to uplift those who have been told they’re unworthy and ugly since the beginning of time? Ugh!
(Standing at the bus stop and this man approaches me)
Him: Hi, how are you?
Me: Fine, thank you.
Him: Where you headed?
Him: Was gonna give you a ride. You know, just tryna do my good deed for the day.
Me in my head: hmm mmm, ain’t not in in this world for free, mama ain’t raised no fool and I’ve seen every single episode of SVU. (Vocalizes) No, thank you.
Him: Ooh, aight. You have a good day now.
This is what happens when I leave my headphones and I can’t pretend I’m on the phone.
I love how everyone is always confused by me. I’m Jamaican first so I can sound British-like or I can have the deepest Jamaican creole accent. I live in Brooklyn so sometimes I use NYC slang and I can have a decent convo in Spanish. It all just depends on my mood and who I’m with at the time. I speak absolutely no English at home. I’ve been told I look Nigerian, Ghanaian, Kenyan, Haitian, etc.I don’t fit into anyone’s lil box and I absolutely love that!
I try to stop cursing, but I get mad and people get on my nerves and I can’t keep it ALL in or express it the “proper” way so sometimes I gotta say “Word to my motha, I feel like slappin this stupid bitch” and I feel so much better afterwards.
When guys come at me with this lame line “I was just going thru my contacts and came across your name so I thought I’d say what up”. My name starts with a “Z” so you gotta go thru damn near ALL your contacts to get to my name doe.
Why my housemate knocked on my door and entered before I said “come in”? Just cause I answered don’t mean you should come in. She don’t know I don’t always wear clothes. I won’t apologize if you see my ass. (Kanye shrug).
