Leave home. Miss home.
Getting extremely tired of reactionary white people forcing their opinions and perceptions of life on me. Even if you don’t realize it maybe saying/posting everything that comes to mind is boring, annoying and fucked up. There is so much space and so many words to say in this community, but your innate sense of entitlement to everything will always keep us on the outskirts. Always having to listen to bullshit. Lately I’ve been made to feel like I’m being to loud, feeling too much, getting too excited about things. Which is funny, because I don’t think I speak up enough sometimes or write about things that are important to me, like how growing between two worlds will always affect you or make you question your own sense of self/worth in a majority of spaces.
I AM NOT LIKE YOU. And I’m tired of internalizing the way you’d like me to be. Obviously this is not some blanket statement, but to specific people who enact this and those that don’t realize they do. Take a step and recognize that your privilege and lack of self analysis is choking us all.

truly we live in the digital age, this barely happened 6 hours ago
For the daytime crowd
This happened last night and was sorta nervewracking, but ultimately really amazing to play with 3 other bands full of people who I really care about and think are amazing. A buddy show even at a huge venue feels safe and great, which I don’t think I’ve felt in a long time. Also I’m stoked on new songs.
