"If I am a witch, then so be it, I said. And I took to eating black things - huitlacoche the corn mushroom, coffee, dark chiles, the bruised part of fruit, the darkest, blackest things to make me hard and strong."
tumblr is such an awful place sometimes - i feel legitimately discredited due to my lack of ~scholarly studies~ on any given subject…
it is really hard coming from a very impoverished family, where we struggled endlessly/had our utilities shut off for months at a time, etc. and i could never begin to comprehend affording a higher education - i am just thankful that i can pay for basic amenities and small hobbies (even though i have $$$ tons of medical debt) at this point in my life, it is such a huge success for me
having my interests feel trivialized is the WORST feeling
