Pretty sure my body is forcing me to quit smoking.

Every cig I’ve smoked in the last week has tasted nasty.

I’m probably just gonna switch to only smoking my e-cig soon.

My hands and feet have been so swollen and itchy for like a week.

Well 5 days. Since I started getting sick anyway.

My cartilage piercing had closed up completely.

So I took a needle, sterilized it, and shoved it through. I didn’t even feel it.

But omg did it bleed. And I sterilized my jewelry and put it back in too. I’m gonna wear it to work. One of our insiders (who used to do delivery) has several cartilage piercings. If she can wear them so can I. Or so I say.

Cause it’s my fav piercing I have.

creekdontrise omg your posts about fried chicken liver and whatnot is making me soooo hungry

Now I want chicken liver and chicken gizzards and fried okra and fried eggplant and adsjfiuawiuefhauwefuawefkjawfhaiuowefhiauwhefkjanhewf

Dear tumblr folks
My name is Ryan (they/them/their) and I am a queer, Indigenous artist. I am Lac du Flambeau Ojibwe and an aspiring artist and fashion photographer. I am currently fundraising so I will have the opportunity to attend the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe in the fall. 
Finances have been the biggest struggle so far. a lot of my money went to an institution that was neither culturally competent or supportive towards my needs as a native artist. A lot of my work was misidentified with the wrong cultures, I was told I should include more “headdresses” in my work. So I need to go to IAIA because it will give me the education I crave, need, deserve, and clearly earned through 3 years of struggling at another university that could not and did not provide the tools for me to succeed. 
This is a space that is focused on the art i want to bring and will allow me the opportunities and the work spaces to grow and become a better artist. 
Please consider donating and help this 2 spirit individual successfully travel to and occupy a space that was created for me and will provide the necessary support. 
All funding will go to cover transportation.

I am too damn old to have strep throat.

Also, why is everything so much worse when you’re older??

Not even kidding. The pain I was in last night was so bad it felt like the pain I had after having my tonsils removed two years ago (they kept me in the hospital overnight then).

I was legit crying from it (partly because I was in pain and partly because I was extremely frustrated from it).

I am too damn old to have strep throat.
