gender/self-affirming (food mention)
look i'm just the kind of dude who:
* is really in touch with feelings, my own or anyone else's
* cooks a mountain of food for dinner AND does the dishes afterwards
* asks for help with opening jars that are too tight
* holds the door open for someone approaching with their arms full
* always overtips
* sits down to pee
* loves looking at myself in the mirror
* cries while watching movies on a plane
* forgets to call my mother

you can reply to this post with random questions for me if you want!
i look at photos of dead relatives to try and imagine what sort of behavior and values they might have modeled for me, and ache with the sense that all modern discourse tells me what not to be without giving me a path for what i could be.
"be yourself, you are valid," is what it all says. but the self is partially constructed from a pattern built off what you have seen, what histories you carry.
i have a hard time understanding that anyone could truly grow up as themselves.
this quiet and rainy weekend of reading about boyhood and masculinity and parenting realizing i'm just craving a socialiaztion i didn't have growing up so i'm picking and choosing what parts of it i want to give myself
and i'm wishing for siblings and cousins and older figures to travel with me through this space, but instead i just read takes from people i'll never meet or pass support to pain i find relatable and still can't help but feel that i'm missing something.
corporate social media
when a student swing by my office and as an aside, asks what kind of photography i do and if i have an instagram, and i'm like 'i used to and i nuked that shit because i hate the internet' and then came out all her confessions about how it's all about numbers now, she doesn't even care about quality or thoughtfulness, and she's been watching videos about things like what the best time of day it is to post to maximize engagement, etc.
what a miserable life that is.
a general statement that @erosdiscordia is a cool human and i'm glad to know them through this strange little portal through the universe ✌️
[ bikes, dogs, rocks, mud, trees, skies, planets, hearts ]
a strange sort of drifter full of ideas and stories
