Hi, my name is Jay. I'm 21. Senior engineering student in Portland, Oregon. I currently teach and work in a book store. I like to make art and sell crafts I make. This blog is a personal reflection of things I like, anecdotes about my life, things that inspire me, things that make me laugh, and all together just a blog to take some time away from my busy life. Check out my other blog for less tangential content.

Reasons why I’m excited for “Dear White People:”

  • Black actors portraying 3-dimensional characters
  • Honest social commentary
  • Targeted to the college age demographic
  • Thorough exploration of the various forms of racism in America
  • Tessa Thompson’s voice and Tyler William’s afro wig

Reasons why I’m not excited for “Dear White People:”

  • White people calling it racist
  • Mainstream media agreeing with the white people calling it racist

After paying tuition last week, I don’t think anyone knows how broke I am right now. Like, how did I end up with $2 in my bank account. Thank god for my credit card… hopefully no payments are going through. And, thank god I’m babysitting tomorrow. Really hoping I get paid in cash.

When someone is crying, of course, the noble thing to do is to comfort them. But if someone is trying to hide their tears, it may also be noble to pretend you do not notice them.

Today was long.

Worked my job at the book store from 10-1, then drove 15 miles away for an interview at a small engineering firm, and then drove to school on the other side of town for the first day of my senior year of college. Didn’t get out until evening, and then got in a tiff with my guy about my cat. Or, more that he’s allergic and won’t be flexible about having her live with us, though I’m moving 2400 miles to be with him and he can’t budge over a very well behaved cat that he will end up immune to with exposure after a few months. 

Ugh, I just wish he was here and I was done with school and he wasn’t allergic and I had a decent job and that I wasn’t living at home and oh so many things.
