I have not written in awhile. Half truth. I have been writing for a publication called the Disorientation Guide. It is dedicated to shifting the paradigms of innocent but interested freshman as they enter the problematic and challenging institution of UC Santa Cruz. Our goal was to break down radical theories, histories, and concepts in a way that made them accessible for people who may never of...

But the sunlight eventually teases my eyelids open, still I just lay there. She said “Some people don’t understand the superpowers it takes from some people to get out of bed.” ...
