    You Aren’t Boring I Just Suck At Conversations I’m Sorry: a novel by me

    I’m Not Ignoring You I Just Don’t Know What To Say: a sequel by me

    I Feel Like I have Nothing Interesting To Say So I Don’t Say Anything At All And I’m Really Sorry Don’t Stop Talking To Me: the trilogy.

    huffs in frustration

    okay so:

    i know this feeling intimately and it really helped me to discover that sucking at conversations is not, in fact, intrinsic about you.  social anxiety is hard, but getting better at small talk is a learnable skill!  having interesting things to say is a learnable skill!  we are not doomed to feel this way forever!

    skills i am constantly working on:

    1) asking more questions!  asking people what they think then asking why they think it.  when someone says something confusing, asking them to explain better.  this is hard!  but good.

    2) effectively narrativizing my life!  when something stressful or unlikely or hilarious happens to me, trying to find the punchline.  real life doesn’t always have a satisfying ending and i hate when my stories trail off into nothing, so i try to test-run stories, noting when an ending falls flat. remembering that being funny takes practice.

    3) surrounding myself with good conversationalists.  extroverts are great for this!  learn to enjoy conversations while they do all the work.  steal their tricks!  it is so relaxing to socialize with a group of people who are genuinely drawing energy from just being around each other. 

    4) no seriously asking people questions everyone wants to talk about themselves and their opinions more, and people have super cool stuff to say if they trust you to listen and not think they’re annoying.  it’s so tricky, but so fabulous when it works.

    this may not help everyone, but seeing this helpless post with three hundred thousand notes was v concerning to me.

    okay grumpy oldster out, carry on.

    The huge amount of pressure on young girls to let their boyfriends get away with everything and not to stand up for themselves, lest they stop being a ‘chill girlfriend’ and instead become a horrible, controlling harpy is such bullshit.

    Stop teaching young girls that demanding to be treated with respect and courtesy makes them shrill, over-emotional, or unworthy of listening to.

    :((((((((((((

    she was dressed modestly to begin with though wtf

    But obviously girl knees are so much more psychologically problematic to a developing adolescent than watching adults wield and flex the ability to humiliate powerless children with the excuse that the knees of children are inherently sexually stimulating

    Malcolm X: Our History Was Destroyed By Slavery 

    on March 17, 1963 in Chicago.

    see how little we get taught about history - I never had any idea why Malcolm X used the ‘X’. 

    How come I didn’t know this

    Also that crusty old white man called the named ‘gifted’. Jesus.
