i hate februarys

Fevrale dostat chernil i plakat,
Pisat O Fevrale navsnryd,
Poka grohochushaya slyakot
Vesnoyu charnoyu gorit.

[February. get ink, shed tears.
write of it, sob your heart out, sing.
while torrential slush that roars,
burns in the blackness of the spring

februarys suck.
-it's usually the coldest and darkest month of the year.
-valentine's day. *being perpetually single is fine until you get smacked upside the head with happy couples*
-and i have to hear about martin luther the king and all of the same black people we have been taught about since 2nd grade while not teaching children comprehensive black history or having a real conversation about race and why black history month is necessary. is it? who knows? i'm sleepy.

i haven't abandoned this blog yet. promise i'll update sooner than later.

No, you can't hate February's! It's Black History Month, we get an entire month!

Is it the most depressing and shortest month of the year? Yes.

But is it the one time you can possible convince your employer that this is a religious holiday you share with the rest of the Black diaspora, and therefore need to take the entire month off? Hell, no.

But black is beautiful (of course you already knew that) and it is the one time of the year that our culturally inept peers will see it as politically correct and not "offensive" to make such an observation.

P.S. I just watched another T.P. movie, and you look so much like Taraji P. Hensen:0(
