I HAVE NEVER SEEN THIS EXPLAINED BETTER THANK YOU SQUIDWARD
Black Mass ~ Alfred Kubin 1905
[…] What does offend me is the fact that we think it’s acceptable to use someone’s level of education and their perceived social class as insults.
These comments – comments making assumptions about socioeconomic status, comments telling me that choosing the wrong words, the “common” words, devalues my writing – are incredibly classist. They operate on the assumption that only writers of a certain social class have any kind of merit. They perpetuate the idea that only people who speak the right way, work the right jobs, and live in the right parts of town are worth listening to and taking seriously. These comments lay bare what every poor person already knows and what deeply entrenched social systems and cultural ideas tell us every day: the poor don’t matter.
No, I won’t stop swearing, The Belle Jar.
FYI: me either.
Come sleep with me; We won’t make Love, Love will make us.

Don’t be afraid of death; be afraid of an unlived life. You don’t have to live forever, you just have to live.

"Her blonde hair was part of an attempt to to start over and adopt a new persona, following her first suicide attempt in August of 1953." Plath, who had spent six months in psychiatric care following the suicide attempt, had seemed to improve greatly by the the summer of 1954. This period of time has been lovingly referred to by her biographers as her ‘platinum summer.’"
