My name is Eden, hence the Tumblr ID. I am originally from the Bronx, New York. I am a photography student.

So this is a blog about anything I guess that comes to mind. Such as sharing news or venting, and maybe some photos and experiences.

I love love love Alan Rickman & Charles Dance.

Enjoy!

P.S. my birthday is August 18th....hint hint!

How does one look like an “American Girl”? As an American woman I need to know this.

people think you are beautiful just because you have green eyes? fake colored/dyed hair and are "light skinned" ? what shallow thinking! no wonder the world is in chaos these days. You're not even the best example of a "south asian" girl- at least not physically. People need to stop obsessing over light skin, light eyes and light hair. That doesn't make a person beautiful, a lot of white chicks and light skinned girls are absolutely awful at heart

I don’t think people think I’m beautiful because I have light eyes and light skin and dyed hair. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Now let me start off with there is no best example of a South Asian woman. South Asian woman come in all shades and colours. You can just base it off by saying there’s one shade of colour that’s the perfect example. It’s quite rude for you to even message me this way. A lot of Caucasian people are nice too you can’t just say all Caucasian people are awful at heart. What kind of a chicken headed judgement is that? Let me start of by showing you the various shades present in South Asia

This is a Sri Lankan girl from Sri Lanka

This is a Nepali

So basically you can’t say South Asia is made of one colour because shades are always going to vary. There is no one perfect colour that makes up South Asian people and not a single person of South Asian descent who can be the “perfect” example.

New job, y’all.

labellerien:

I started a new job Monday as a customer service rep for SiriusXM. I’m starting out with customers whose free trials in their cars are about to run out and I see if they want to keep using or cut it off. There’s a lot to get used to in terms of where everything is on the screen because there are so many different tabs to have for the hundreds of scenarios I could encounter, but I seem to be picking it up quickly because my trainer praises the shit out of me and not so much everyone else and I can’t tell if it’s because I’m really good or if they’re really bad haha.

I’m keeping my old grocery store job too so I’m working 52 hours this week. It’s a huge pain to not have a life Monday-Thursday (I work 9-1:30 and then 4:30-10 those days) but at least I have Friday and Sunday off and only work 9-2:30 Saturday. Plus I’ll be making around $1,200 a month, which means I’ll have at least $300 left over after bills for whatever I want to buy. I’m definitely thinking getting my car fixed, buying a laptop, and going to Europe. After I pay my pet fee and bring Oliver here, of course. I even opened my first credit card in my name, not one with my name on the card linked to dad’s account, to buy business casual clothes since I didn’t have any.

Things are going really well. Not much of a social life now, but I’m bettering me and my future, so I’m okay with it.

I think that the lipstick is just used for the foundation to "grab onto" something, if that makes sense? I wonder if red doesn't work for a person of color, maybe a darker shade or even black would work?

lightspeedsound:

I guess, maybe? but why the dark red color? 

And I wonder if black would actually react weirdly with the shadows?

We use either shades of brown lipstick or just put on the appropriate foundation directly

stop co-opting black oppression to make a point about native oppression

cultofkimber:

The narrative in this country—perpetuated in our classrooms, legislation, media, advocacy circles, etc.—paints the oppression of Native Americans as insignificant at best and non-existent at worse, and, though the two are not mutually exclusive, it does often exist in sharp contrast (especially in educational contexts, and thus common knowledge) to the narrative of black oppression. And that’s especially true of issues like American slavery, which are represented almost exclusively as being black oppression. 

But that’s an incomplete narrative. The only way to address that without acknowledging and addressing that existing narrative (of black oppression) in a comparative way is to omit contextual facts and pretend that indigenous oppression within this history existed in some kind of vacuum removed from all historical, cultural, legislative, and social relevancy. And, frankly, that’s just as oppressive as the current erasure. Building upon people’s existing knowledge is crucial for providing historical context about the timeline, scope, and culture of that history as well as the violence inherent in erasing us from it. And if you have a problem with such statements of fact, then I think you need to check the narrative you’re perpetuating.

I agree with you. They’re pretty much the same in my eyes.

Native oppression = Black oppression

things I hate….canker sores…..allergies and stress never mix well.

See, guys. This is how you do it. Notice the words “Not all men are like that” are never spoken.

You are a good man, Sir Patrick Stewart.

He’s absolutely marvelous!
