somebody keeps shooting their gun in my hood. this is so fucked up man..
some creepy 50 y/o dude slowly trailed beyond me on his bike, while i rode behind him. trying to dodge him, he looked me in the eye and gave me a pass with his hand to signal i could in front of him. Immediatley i thought, fuck no, this person can pin point xactly where im going and trap me when no ones looking. i gave him a very drrty look, went around him from the behind and began trailing on the sidewalk. he followed me, onto the sidewalk. luckily my destination was right there so i turned into the parking lot and made my way up to the opened doors. the man still followed me, and tried getting my attn saying excuse me and asking questions. I had my headphones on full blast and i looked at him and said leave me the fuck alone. I parked my bike into the building and it turned out that creepy man ended up attending the same work meeting i was at. he was just asking for directions.
but you see, this is an exact perfect exploration of men and their inherent entitlement complexes. why do you think, being an old ass creepy man, can apporach a young woman in any fucking fashion and manner. be it, asking for directions, FOLLOWING them into a building, is that not fucking creepy?? as “innocent” of an act asking directions was, there is an undeniable theme of this world, which Men are PREDATORS. because women are weak, soft, vulnerable, cant open doors for themselves, should get raped if drunk. men cant assume they can approach people in any way they want, becos you are a fucking predator, you are a fucking creep, you are a threat. even if those arent your intentions. Men created a world based upon dominance and fear. So you can suffer the consequences too, and accept that a women in her right vigilant mind will only assume for her saftey, that you are a danger to us.

why id rather get my own space vs staying with my roommates and affordable rent:
crying in peace
hiding away from everybody
focus, focus, focus.
im starting off by scratch again. yeah, my lifes not perfect and i hit bottom at least 4 times a month. i struggle alot, but im great at masking it. i got a great boyfriend who gives me all the attn i need. i have wonderful friends, even if theyre stuck in jail, moved away, or dead. everytime i see mark, its like seeing my mentor, or hearing life advice. hes alwayse telling me things like how im “doing great”, how i got “good things going for me, dont forget that”, or how “man, if i could go back to your age, id do it all different and take advantage of all that you have”. its like when one stupid idea comes into my head, i hear all the things mark tells me that usually encourages me to push myself to my potential. so im waiting on this insurance money from when the car hit me. and some buddies built up a bike for me to ride in the meanwhile. so many people have my back. so many people fuckin love me and it blows my mind out of reality to realize how ive created these bonds from nothin. and now this. now i have so many people who support me. its fuckin crazy. home is where yr heart is, obviously!! i got a new job at a weedshop. i get paid to roll blunts all day and play with weed. im happy with my boyfriend. and i can honestly say, i couldnt possibly be as miserable as i was This same day, Last year.
