I refuse to succumb to self-deprecating, self-loathing mentality

Seriously, what have we done that is so shameful or grounds to feel guilty about? NOTHING.

Don’t tell me I am not human. Don’t tell me I am not as good as you. And certainly don’t tell me that my opinions are not as good as that of a straight, white male, American citizen.

I am a bit too educated to succumb to any categories, labels or tags anyone wants to give me. That’s the problem with this country; we have a labeling mentality. When people do not fit into our neatly constructed boxes of white/black, male/female, gay/straight, legal/illegal, we don’t know how to deal with it. The self-constructed anomaly becomes an Other, an object of our curiosity and obsession that we ‘treat’ as an alien foreign invasion, medicate, legislate, condition or control.

Just quit, I am too tired.

Oh, I got the internship. I have a couple days to decide whether I want to give my services to a good organization or whether I want to sit at home and DREAM more. Alright, time to pull up my socks and impress for the PhD programs.
