Ugh. Cramps. And a dumb unemployment workshop for 6 hours tomorrow. #ugh #lame #purplehair #pastel #pastelhair #lavender
First of all, hey new followers! I suppose you got here via the liftings. So welcome to my weird ass blog.
For those of you that don’t know, while I’m not picking up heavy things I am a full time grad student going through an alternative teacher prep program (Dual Masters in Elem. Ed. and…

#cleopatra with the nose knocked off. I wonder if people still think she was European like the movies betray…
I still think it’s one of the most desperate things whites have done to blacks and to black history. The disrespect is outrageous. They came to our country and mentally could not fathom how these black civilizations could be so great. They literally rode through our lands and shot the noses off of our statues. Why? So that the statues would no longer resemble the African people and they could LIE about the origins of Egypt and countless other civilizations. It was a widespread practice. It’s why statues of Pharaoh’s and their wives have no noses. It’s why the Sphinx has no nose. When I was in middle and high school, we were taught that the noses had fell off due to time and poor craftsmanship! They have literally tried to teach us that our ancestors were shitty builders of noses just to hide their malicious destruction of our heritage. European fears of African peoples had to come from somewhere. I want to know what part of the history is missing. There’s something that they don’t want to be told.
The shade is real
i was taught that the noses fell off as well and actually continued to believe this. in retrospect this makes no sense, considering greek/roman statues pretty much always have intact noses whereas egyptian ones are always conveniently missing theirs. thank you for pointing this out to me, i hadn’t even made that connection until now.
The bolded was me too and I am seriously embarrassed that I never even thought about how that could be false.
Damnnn. I hate myself for not realizing this.
I hate myself even more, since I know the ancient Egyptians created their sculptural works with the idea of permanence in mind. They were literally built to last throughout the afterlife. Notice how the majority of their monumental sculpture is stone-bound, without any protruding elements or breakable appendages. That’s because many of these sculptures were intended to house the life-force (Ka) of those they portrayed. Of their favorite materials were basalt and diorite, both extremely hard stones that were incredibly difficult to carve. Meaning a nose just doesn’t “fall off” because of “poor craftsmanship,” you would literally have to take a hammer to it. Fuckers.

Don’t hate yourself, and don’t be embarrassed. This is one of the biggest things that they have done to try and uphold the myth of Black inferiority/White supremacy. Erasing Blackness is what they’ve been doing since Day 1. They’ve done it then, they do it now, and they’ll keep doing it until the world ends.
Somebody please tell me what the fuck this is. They keep dying on my porch and they are very scary. #insect #beetle #bug #ufo #alien #cryptoid #wtf
I think that it might be time for me to begin actually writing (blogging, as the case may be.) I think most of you don’t actually know me, save for a few irl friends here and there. So HELLOWW to you who have not met me in the physical world 👋👋👋
I’ve been unemployed for a little over a month now, and it has been a really great/awful/interesting month. Been making TONY of jewelry and I’ve spent all of my monies on supplies, so I pretty much could adorn an entire town. I’m going to be posting a bunch of jewelry for sale on etsy and on here, I’m really trying to get this thing moving so that I can make an actual attempt at taking out a loan to start a business that can support me so I don’t have to get another fucking food service job.
IF ANY OF YOU FOLLOWING ME WANT TO BUY JEWELRY AND/OR COMISSION CUSTOM WORK, I’LL GIVE YOU A DISCOUNT! !! Just email me email@example.com
JohnnyDevl and I had our first ever self organized art/variety show this month! It was awesome and the turn out was really impressive. JohnnyDevl really busted his ass to make it happen and we have another one coming up in August so keep your peepers peeled for more info.
I used to keep a journal but I don’t anymore. I think this might help me get back into writing and processing life in a constructive way. My anxiety has been getting a little out of control lately, especially at night. Especially feeling separation anxiety, which has been an issue my whole life. If anyone has any tips on managing this, let me know.
I’ve also been freestyling a good bit lately and my skills are definitely improving. Hopefully aiming to perform within a few months.
