ransom and i got married several months ago in an intimate ceremony, but recently had a larger reception for more family and friends, and it was a blast! as we’re both writers, it seemed fitting to have the event at one of our favorite bookstores: the last bookstore in downtown LA. we’ve had a lot of requests for photos, so i thought i’d drop a few here. hope you enjoy them as much as we do! 

:::for the especially curious:::

my bouquet: was made from the pages of ransom’s novel (miss peregrine’s home for peculiar children).

our photographers: brandon + katrina of brandon wong photography.

venue: the last bookstore in downtown los angeles.

catering: the extremely fabulous heirloomla.

flowers: from floral art!

rentals: furniture from found rentals, dishes from dishwish!

the band: one of our favorite local indie bands, the gallery.

hugs and books!

xx

tahereh

I don’t have enough money for my basic needs. 

Working 40+ hours just to pay my rent

Now I don’t even have a single cent

Tuition is high, I gotta pay for books

Oh i’m so broke and I don’t wanna look

I popped open my wallet, no funds to count

my credit declined and my check just bounced

Oh, there daddy, daddy betta bring that TAP
Oh, baby, baby where my FASFA at?

Him: I don’t date black women. It’s just a preference.

Me: Based on what?

Him: Nothing, it’s just how I feel.

Me: Impossible, deliberate aversions come from somewhere.

Him: Its just a preference, that’s all.

Me: No, a preference is preferring broccoli to asparagus. You can say that because asparagus will always taste the same, even when prepared differently.

Him: And?

Me: And we’re not always the same at all. There are hundreds of millions of us and we’re each completely different from the next. If an employer said not hiring Black people was a preference would you agree?

Him: No, but that’s based on stereotypes.

Me: … And what is yours based on, facts?

This conversation is stupid. You are trying to make him sound like a racist. Like he’s racist just because he’s not attracted to black women so you compared it to someone not wanting to hire black people for a job. Fuck you. (via nocturnal-flare)

Sorry to break it to you   nocturnal-flare but this argument is valid for various reasons…

Preference is defended as…

likingpartialitypredilectionproclivity,fondnesstasteinclinationleaningbias,bentpenchantpredisposition.favorite(first) choiceselectioncup of teathingdruthers.priorityfavorprecedencepreferential treatment.

That means this dude has had to have dated a black womyn at least once to know what thats like. If he did date a black womyn and didn’t enjoy that experience, that’s based on that particular womyn. Her skin tone has NOTHING to do with the relationship or the experience. Culture, maybe, but skin tone?

Now assuming that ALL black womyn are like this womyn you dated is stereotypic, pretty ignorant and straight out racist. There are so many types of black womyn. Their are black womyn that are Latinas, Arabic, American, Canadian, Australian, etc.

So yeah… that’s what this person meant. I hope this explanation enlightens your perspective. Peace and love and I hope you grow in understanding peoples experience <3

Cuando el sol salga por el oeste y se ponga por el este, cuando los mares se sequen y las montañas se mezan como hojas al viento. Cuando mi vientre vuelva a agitarse y dé a luz un niño vivo. Entonces volverás, mi sol y estrellas, no antes. (Daenerys Targaryen)

I loved watching this couple. #notoverit

Wait a min… can i ramble about this?

adriankarl:

you ever wanna fuck the living shit outta somebody but also cook for them and make sure they’re emotionally stable?

*Sigh* yep, all the damn time. 

Actually can i ask a question about this? I find myself wanting to do the EXACT thing but people right away think I want a longterm relationship with them. Can’t I just fuck them AND treat them like i want to be treated? Like a human being that deserves love and respect from another human? Without wanting a relationship? Cause I got things to do in my life, and I meet other people that catch my interest as well. At the end I love everyone i meet, they’re beautiful individuals and I want them to find other people who would love and respect them as well. I guess i’m not in that place where I want to see one person everyday. It might happen, but until then…

be mindful. not. to let oppression become the definition of your skin. your gender. your non gender. your non sexuality. your sexuality. or anything about you. be mindful that oppression is a thing outside of you. that is always begging to come inside. it is not your given name. you know what your name is. and if you are trapped in the fog of forget. spend the nights and the days re.membering your name.

oppression is the the thing that wants to become your name. do not allow it.

re.membering your name, nayyirah waheed (via nayyirahwaheed)

Young Dad Wins Back Custody of Child Adopted Without Consent

26-year-old Jeremiah Sampson waged a three-year court battle that forced him to drop out of college to pay for legal expenses in gaining custody of his child.
Sampson drove five hours to Rolla, Mo., once or twice a week for more than six months to challenge the adoption in court. The adoptive parents threw a towel over the baby’s head in court, refusing to let him look at his birth father.
Born and raised in Coweta, Oklahoma, Sampson had four older brothers, three sisters and a mother who worked two jobs to support them all. He didn’t meet his father until he was 13 and hasn’t seen him much since. “I would never do that to my own flesh and blood,” Sampson said. “I would never walk away from my own child.”
Sampson is now suing the adoption agency for violating his parental rights by going ahead with the placement even after he objected.
