I’ve been watching this guy’s livestreams for a few days now. He’s super positive and really nice to all his viewers, answering everything he can. Also considering his abilities he is really good at Diablo III and WoW. Like the fact that I could have been playing WoW with people like him and getting my ass handed to me by them is part of the reason I appreciate video games as a form of therapy.
“Do not mock my mother’s “broken English”.
Do not exaggerate my father’s limited vocabulary.
Do not comment on the words that are accented too strongly.
These are the sounds of my birth.
These are the lyrics of my childhood songs.
These are the words they taught me as they struggled to teach themselves.
To my ears filled with the voices of my immigrant family,
Filled with the ridicule of the children that mocked my accent,
Your “perfect English” means nothing to me.”
in case you need some encouragement today, IT’S ONE DAY CLOSER TO AUTUMN. one day closer to jeans and boots and scarves and sweaters and beautiful trees and frost on the grass and actually wanting to go outside and cooler temperatures and happiness.
i need ferguson to go down in history books. i need school children in the year 2074 to learn about michael brown being shot on august 9th, 2014 by officer darren wilson. i need this to spark a movement. this can not lose the focus of society a mere month after it happened.
