I met Jesmyn Ward (a while ago), the author of The Men We Reaped, and god was she awesome

She has written three books and she's working on a third. The Men We Reaped is a memoir for the five young men that she lost to a little thing called systematic racism.

She is a black woman and her writing is just so powerful and great. I can identify with some of her life, but not much because she's a black woman (I'm directly mixed) who has an impoverished family (I can empathize with that part very well). She had a brother that wasn't as smart as she was, hell they were on different ends of the spectrum. She was a scholarship girl at little private school (where she faced a hell of a lot of racism) and he was a boy who was just going to be another statistic, another drop out. His life was basically predestined for him.

I need to read this book but the woman knows her way around setting a scene and using AAVE.

You should look at a few of her books, they're great
  • Listening to: crickets
  • Reading: YaYa Sisterhood
Life is too short to be super pretentious about music holy fuck. I love so much music. Please do yourself a favor and love most (if not all) music. That's the best thing that you could do for yourself

also, listen to teenage dirtbag

that song is so good god damn it
  • Listening to: crickets
  • Reading: The Joy Luck Club
