     “My family is from Eritrea, and I’m really interested in going back and working there.”     “What do you like the most about Eritrea?”     “I like the people because they are very humble, sweet and dignified. They work really hard, and they don’t experience the same social inequalities that exist in this country. They are a lot more united than the people here. I feel that the warmth is missing here. The thread that weaves this country together is money, not meeting people’s needs.”     “Why do you think Eritreans are more united?”     “I think African culture has always been more communalist. People live in close proximity to each other, and you are raised by your village. You can’t afford to be individualistic in a society that doesn’t have much, so the village or commune shares a water well. Individualism kind of sprouted out in Europe.  When Europeans started extracting resources from Africa and elsewhere, they were able to build a society in which people had more. Africans have never taken resources in abundance from other countries in the same way. I think the whole theory of development came from the West. What is developed? Exploiting the Earth? That’s degenerative. The term development is relative and is defined within a Western framework.”

Homegirl started off lowkey and sweet and went straight for the jugular. I love her. 

omg yaaaaasss! As I read on, I got more and more excited like yes, boo, slay those Western imperialist/colonist ideologies, fuck ‘em up!

i don’t want to be that guy but i get really weirdly offended and upset when people’s harry potter universe headcanons don’t take into account that the british/european use of magic would be this super colonialist fucked up thing? the assumption that every culture would have their own schools…

Things people with Social Anxiety do

high-energy-introvert:

•go to the bathroom to escape

•feel very uncomfortable without a phone or some other crutch

•dwell on a small awkward moment for much longer than necessary

•never go to any social event without a person that makes you feel comfortable

•follow said person way too much

•worry about the person beginning to find you obnoxious

•faking an illness to get out of a social event

•Dont buy something necessary because the cashier is intimidating.

“The self-portrait in the Western avant-garde tradition is a celebration of unlikability, the unorthodox, the unhinged, the unusual (the list of “un”s could go on). It’s in this spirit that the artists in Self-Timer Stories are working. And that strategy contradicts with the function of the online selfie, which is there to get and keep followers, to accumulate likes, and to show the world how likable you are. This show confirms that unlikable can be fascinating, and that what visual culture often deems agreeable in a woman can be problematic.” —

Before Selfies, There Were Self-Timers by Daniel Larkin (September 4, 2014)

Really into writers/work that makes clear distinctions between selfies vs self-portraits, the similarities but the important differences between the two. Effort/lessness. Timers. Trinkets. The idea that once only the person developing the film would see it and whoever the person who took it would decided to share it with. Now the instantaneousness, the broadcasting, the vulnerability has shifted.
