so recently I’ve been considering with my shrink whether I might have ADD. I was going through old notebooks for an unrelated reason and found this page from 1999.

" FUCK! why can’t I organise anything? why is my brain so fucked!"

in the first entry in the same book I wrote: “so, starting from scratch. a nice fresh new notebook. this time I’m gonna keep it clean and organised. yeah right. sometimes I think maybe I have some sort of organisational disability. Some kind if dyslexia. but I think really I just don’t apply myself. I’m a little worried about this book. it’s not spiral bound. but it just like so pretty and marbley. so I’ll see.

this is the most boring meta nostalgia piece I’ve ever seen. I think this author must have been too entrenched in their own 70’s nostalgia to see that the 70’s nostalgia of the 90’s was qualitatively the same as 90’s nostalgia is now. “which Dawson’s creek character are you” isn’t actually a quiz aimed at me, who was 12-22 in the 90’s. it’s aimed at people who 2-12 or less than 0. the same as say Polly Esther’s or dazed and confused were aimed at me. my nostalgia for the 90’s isn’t for the pop culture specifics, it’s for mood (it was a different feeling between the Cold War and the terror war) and knowing in retrospect how much opportunity and energy I totally squandered.

older pop culture wasn’t as accessible in the past, I do understand that. but lots if kids have legitimately haven’t heard of the x-files. but I’ve managed to see several seasons of good times before the Internet age. maybe the author forgot that the 90’s also brought is nick at nite.

eta: their assessment of the 90’s as having a resurgence of racial tension/violence also seems off. I’m not aware of a break in racism that preceded it.

Anonymous said: Since my ancestors came here in the early 1900's, were northerners and actually helped black people while they themselves were being discriminated against because they were Italian and a few shades darker than the Irish/English. I don't think I should have to pay reparations and I don't owe anyone and apology for slavery.

Look, you dumb asshole, I know you’re stupid as fuck, but, as a white person, you benefit from the racism that’s going on TODAY. Literally no one is asking you to pay reparations, despite the fact that you owe your way of life to slavery and continue to enjoy its fruits right fucking now, so count your blessings, you racist fuck.

A federal judge just blocked a medically unnecessary “Texas-style” law in Alabama that would have severely restricted access to safe, legal abortion by forcing all but 2 health centers to stop providing abortions. 

Laws like these place onerous restrictions on doctors and health centers, are politically motivated, and do nothing to advance patients’ health — instead, they put women in danger.
