She Rants n Raves

I am a proud WoC. Skeptical of all institutions while accepting that I am constantly navigating many contradictions in my life. Trying to find my way back to my mother tongues. Always decolonizing even from inside institutions. Call me indignant, I prefer it to ignorant.

You photographed my sis! Haha :))

As I’ve traveled around the province, I’ve noticed little details like the murals directly underneath houses’ steeples. It changes depending on the region and dominant ethnic minority group. In 汉 areas, there is no mural; in 大理, the 白 peoples paint lotuses; in 怒江, the 傈僳 peoples paint elephants; in 永平, the 回 people paint what looks like two 失灵 fighting.

So this guy volunteers at the Olympics. He figures maybe he’ll get to see some amazing athletes doing athletic things. And then the fastest man alive gives him a fist bump.
Look at all that happy.

this is still my favourite thing on the internet

I still love this

When we least expect it, life sets us a challenge to test our courage and willingness to change; at such a moment, there is no point in pretending that nothing has happened or in saying that we are not yet ready. The challenge will not wait. Life does not look back. A week is more than enough time for us to decide whether or not to accept our destiny.

….. I took a war personally. But wars are not personal. More often, it’s not even an ethnic or religious issue (although in the case of Sri Lanka it was both) but instead based on corporations and money. People vs. Money was the overall concept- the consciousness we were in at the time and the title of the tour as we were going on the road to make $$. I was constantly having to make that decision: Am I doing this for the love of the people or for the love of money?
