beautiful hair. (by Joy Okon)
Please watch. This is the story of so many Black girls.
Y’ALLS TRYIN’ TO MAKE ME CRY TODAY HUH?
Oh my heart.
I think black mother’s don’t realize the power they have on what their children think about themselves. My mother gave me a relaxer at the age of 4 because I was tender-headed. So for almost 20 years I straightened my hair. Then one day while I was in college, my mother was doing my hair in braids and she pulled out a piece that I missed on my last relaxer and said “look at how pretty that hair is.” The same mother who gave me a relaxer in that very moment changed what I thought of my natural hair. And from that day forward I never put a relaxer in. Even though she had relaxed my hair most of my life for convenience, when she had the chance to change my opinion of my hair she did. She said if it hadn’t been for me crying when she did my hair, she would have left it alone. If you see that you may be giving out the wrong message to your children, take the next opportunity to change what you say.
gimme a canon rewrite where somehow mickey knows karen is into girls and karen knows mickey is into boys and karen accepts when mickey asks her out instead of thinking he’s smelly and gross because then they could become mogii friends who protect each other and karen could have a budding relationship with his sister while mickey and ian are getting together because ian and mandy are dating for each others’ protection too >:(((
the pines were roaring on the height,
the winds were moaning in the night…

According to Samira’s Wiki page!
free! + that one time everyone simultaneously realized they had a crush on haru
Now a new kind of confidence is lighting up inside of me, because I think I finally know who Haymitch is. And I’m beginning to know who I am. And surely, two people who have caused the Capitol so much trouble can think of a way to get Peeta home alive.
