When a student tries to sit in my seat
ignore anyone who tells you otherwise.
No white girls?
Western beauty standards are based on whiteness, causing PoC to often feel as though they fall through the cracks.
Sit the fuck down.
NO WHITE GIRLS!!
Boo hoo, bitch.
George Ferrandiit felt like i knew you…, 2012 - ongoingI ride the NYC subway trains, usually in the evening when the seats are full. I focus on the shape of the space between the person sitting next to me and myself. I attempt to mentally and emotionally re-sculpt that space. In my mind, I reshape it- from the stiff and guarded space between strangers to the soft and yielding space between friends. I direct all my energy to this space between us. When the space palpably changes, and I completely feel like the stranger sitting next to me is my friend, I rest my head on that person’s shoulder…This says a lot about people.

Studying for a big test?

You can always stand to eat more vegetables, and you can never go wrong with broccoli, spinach, and other dark green leafy vegetables. For a quick snack, munch on blueberries, nuts, hummus, and dark chocolate. Oily fish, curry, and olive oil can be incorporated into a full meal for a truly brain-boosting meal.

I know a lot of you are in the middle of finals! I hope this post helps! It’s almost over soon. Hang in there <3
Another one from goodreads. :-) This is a monthly post now I guess.
Green Warrior Protein Smoothie
Kale – Rich in folate, vitamin C and K, calcium, iron, and beta-carotene. It’s also a hormone balancer, digestion booster, anti-inflammatory, and contains omega-3 fatty acids.
Grapefruit - Rich in vitamin C and is a great detoxifier for the liver.
Cucumber - Prevents water retention, promotes a healthy digestive track, packed with bioavailable minerals, vitamins, and electrolytes.
Celery – Rich in fibre and B vitamins, prevents water retention
Apple – Source of fibre and vitamin C, helps balance blood sugar levels, boosts digestion, reduces inflammation
Algae oil (DHA rich) – A sustainable, plant-based source of omega-3 fatty acids. My go-to brand is NutraVege. Making up 97% of the fatty acids found in the brain, DHA is a very important long-chain fatty acid in the omega-3 family. It’s super important for pregnant women and children under the age of 2 as it supports brain, vision, and nerve development. Note: I don’t add this oil directly into the smoothie. I simply take it seperately so it doesn’t impact the flavour.
Virgin Coconut Oil – Coconut oil has antiviral, antifungal, and antibacterial properties. It’s rich in medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) which help boost the metabolism and lower the risk of heart disease.
Hulled hemp seeds – A great source of complete protein, contains the ideal balance of omega 3-6-9 fatty acids, and is high in fibre. Hemp seeds also reduce inflammation in the body and balance hormones.
Mango – Rich in vitamin C, fibre, and beta-carotene. It also contains enzymes that help with the breakdown of protein in the body (great for the above protein-rich hemp seeds!).Recipe here.
