ok now I need to go to bed
his life was totally in danger.
True story; this officer (John Pike) got a settlement of $38,000 because he said he got depressed after pepper spraying these kids. Oh, the depression wasn’t for feeling remorseful for pepper spraying a bunch of college kids peacefully protesting. He got depressed because he said since the media kept playing the video of him pepper spraying peaceful kids without cause, he got threats and didn’t feel safe. He didn’t feel safe. I’m not making that up. This motherfucker collected nearly 40 grand on worker’s comp after assaulting a bunch of college kids.
I call them, alternately, ‘woof marks’ or ‘book m’barks’ but whatever you call them, print and utilize them to note meaningful sections of your favorite medical texts and whaling narratives.
I’ve always been really self-conscious about my body and wanted to be thinner, smaller, perfect… Till the day I realized I’m already perfect, my body is unique and my size is just the material expression of all the love that I keep inside myself.
I dont care about these marks I have on by now, they’re just the reminder of a great person I ran into, spended some quality time together, and went away. That’s how life is, people come and go, what stays is the good things you’re learned from them, the rest it’s the rest.

You’re absolutely right - nothing is forever but how we perceive ourselves to be makes living in the skin we’re in a little bit more bearable don’t you think? I think you look gorgeous and i hope you’re able to continue to take wonderful memories away from all the partners you have in life.
