Rosa Parks episode on Doctor Who

So, I really want to get into the new Doctor on Doctor Who because I love the idea that the future is female and I know that it is. Women are so amazing and we are breaking fucking ceilings!

My issues are that when having a  female doctor, the doctor being a man for centuries. How does she immediately become this whole weird feminist puppy with softy eyes? The changing development of each doctor makes some sort of sense, 11 got young and was all happy and adventurous after losing Rose. Then we get 12 who is old and angry because he had so many loses and he was quite tired.

I don’t like the depiction of the character. I feel like the writers could have done better because they warped her into a feminist instead of a damn person.

I don’t feel like there is really a feminist trope for strong female characters. Hear me out, okay? They group with other female characters and gather as feminine softies instead of just being people.

The doctor is going through time and space discovering more and more powerful woman and they’re fangirling and teaming up which is wasting the damn show. I feel like Doctor Who right now is just showing other strong women in different areas in time and space instead of just being hella geeked out. The other Doctors were able to explore time and space and had their own direct storylines but for 13, she doesn’t get that courtesy, women need to stand for women and that is that. It’s totally boring. Politics are super interesting and Doctor Who has put in social issues in the past and its what I love about this show but I don’t feel like that is being done for this season.

They did Rosa Parks so wrong, Doctor Who, being the show that it is, they could have done a better job with Rosa Parks.

First of all, the whole Rosa Parks thing was staged, the woman who actually did it was Claudette Colvin. She did it first and Rosa Parks reenacted it, go look it up!
(there are two links there btw). They could have revealed the actual story, the Claudette Colvin deserves a widely known story. Why didn’t they do their research? Look shit up.

Also, why are all the bad guys men? or at least that’s what I noticed.
Also, that man who got pregnant in episode 5, The Tsuranga Conundrum but didn’t want to keep his kid because he couldn’t handle it and needed men to be with him while he gave birth? Fucking boring! I just feel like the writers aren’t thinking big enough.

Cuffing Season?

Howdy!!!!

I’m back! College is hard especially when you overthink every step you take. I am trying not to. I am processing, I will post about that soon…. hopefully! I make no promises.

*This post is from a cis bi person who enjoys monogamous relationships

Anyway, I have this friend, I will name him Johny for this post. We love Johny, Johny is the homie but Johny has so many hard times with relationships and sometimes Johny is a bit snarky with the conversation of love and all of its excitements!

Today we had a conversation about both of our interest in dating people, mine for commitment and him for sex. lol.

He told me that no matter what person I’m interested in, I am guaranteed to get them simply because it’s cuffing season.

Now, I swear I am so behind on the whole dating scene because I refused to date due to my childhood trauma (hahaha, you’ll find out in a later post). I’m at a point where I am determined to forgo that belief and to move forward into a healthier and happy life with another person one day.

Now with all that hope, you could understand why I’m a bit sketchy about the whole cuffing season thing.

Do people purposely get into “cuffing season” relationships? Like, do people voluntarily mixed themselves up with people during the cold seasons only to drop them in the future? Just so that they don’t have to be alone? For a body to cuddle with?

Honestly, that sounds fucking SAD. Full shadeeee!

Might as well find a continuous fuck buddy with the knowledge that nothing will come of it. Like why not walk into a relationship and say, “I just want someone who physically gives me comfort during these cold months. Are you down?

Otherwise, by the time, Valentine’s Day comes around one or both of you are skirting around the possibilities and knowing that both of you will end things soon.

I feel like it’s such a high school concept, the cuffing season, 4 or 5 months of a fake relationship. Aren’t relationships supposed to made of connecting with people and growth and understanding and all that happy shit? What do you even do in a “cuffing season” relationship?

According to the internet, you don’t invite them to hang out with friends or family. Do you even get all those cute moments at the beginning of a relationship? No, because you’re mostly cuddled in PJ’s and doing nothing but Netflix and sex.

If anyone could tell me the value of a “cuffing season” relationship, I’d be all ears but that all sounds crazy to me. There are relationships that are openly nonmonogamous or not long term but those are discussed in the beginning. If you follow the dating season calendar, you’d be back on the market by summer. Might as well stick with someone until it all fizzles out.

Oh… the stupidity. Just get a heated blanket or a weighted one and go on a meditation retreat and find yourself.

My Senior Project

Hey! I am sad today but at least I got paid and I mean PAID because I picked up an extra shift so… MORE MONEY!

I’m looking forward to going home this weekend. I’m trying to get my Senior Project done, I will refer to it as SP for the remainder of this post.

My senior project will be about the representation of black people in science fiction literature. I was going to write about people of color in general but it would be too grand. I’ve been discussing why black people aren’t too into sci-fi and I realized it would be far too intense to gather all the information for people of color in America.

The perk of writing this project is really about the many black female writers who are KILLING the game in sci-fi. Octavia E. Butler is a queen who was one of the first black science fiction writers.

I’m mostly talking about this because I really want to get up to ten pages of my project before I go home tomorrow but I just started watching Grey’s Anatomy. I’m really hoping I get my project done. This show is just pretty damn good!

I’m gonna get back to the show! Lol.

Friends: Adulting

Back at it again with a late night quickie! (yes, I know how it sounds)

Okay, so what I’m learning about friendships as adults is that people grow. I know it’s totally obvious that people will grow in friendships and relationships but what I’ve really been learning is how to still remain friends with people as you grow.

Relationships are never just black and white. There are difficulties and times where you won’t see eye to eye. It’s just important to remember which relationships are valuable to you and to work around your problems accordingly.

It’s okay to set up your boundaries and ground rules. If they’re your friend, they need to discuss, the reasons why its set up. Accept it and then move on. You can’t grow if everything in your life remains the same.

Growth and change have been such an exciting thing for me and I would love to have people around me who support and understand that. It’s always okay to talk about why you may have issues in your relationship just make sure that the language used makes them still feel valued and that you’re both being supportive and thinking about each other’s feelings.

Many people are scared to confront people they care about because they fear that any problems will make them go away. This happens to MANY people. I’ve been there too. What I’m learning is that it’s okay to voice problems and concerns. Just move forward after it.

Keep growing in your happy and healthy friendships.

**This is late because I’m in class and then I’m going grocery shopping (I bought tacos, yogurt, plantain, wine and soon I’ll be eating pie… yea, I’m kinda in my feelings)

Yo, COLLEGE IS STRESSFUL! Lol. I’ve spent my morning trying to catch up on all my work and my reading which was WILD. I got it done but I was shooooook. I did all my senior project work, without doing any of my perfected edits. Hopefully, I’ll do it tonight while wine drunk and pie-filled. I have no class tomorrow so this isn’t irresponsible, I promise.

One thing that I’m really learning is not to listen to other peoples opinions on my life. I feel like it’s damned me so many times listening to other people and feeling like their thoughts and feelings towards my situations are right. I’ve been pretty sad lately because I’ve noticed how many blessings I didn’t take because I chose to listen to other people. I’ve lost people and things that truly make me happy because I followed the advice of people who didn’t live my life or understand my situations. Now I need to live through my own consequences and hold myself accountable for following someone else’s advice instead of following my own intuition.

This blog will be short because I’m kinda stressed and in my feelings. I hope you enjoy. I’m gonna plan out blog posts for the future.
