We’ve got a lot of inner work to do if we’re going to be ready for the New Moon this week.

Monday 11/28

Monday provides us the right kind of energy to face our own SHADOW. What are our dark aspects and light aspects? How do some of your less-than-reputable qualities balance out with your great ones? What can we learn from our shadows and reflections of ourselves (and others)?

My Thankful List

I know I’m two days late with posting my gratitude and thankfulness on Thanksgiving Day, but one thing I’ve become especially thankful for was to know when to take a step back and feel okay with missing a day or two of blog posting. Because let’s face it, stress sucks, and when you’re tired, who has the will power to do something such as put together a blog post? It’s taken me a long time to be okay with that. Responsibilities make me feel guilty, but some things are no longer worth the stress. I’m living life, and I’m thankful to be able to do so.

The things I’m especially thankful and appreciative for is having my loving family, to have had the chance to spend time with my aunt before she passed, my supportive friends, easy going roommate, stressful but rewarding job, and cute apartment.

Some other recent trivial things I’ve been thankful for include:

Monday 11/21

Looks like we will be starting this week off with a case of the Mondays! While BOREDOM & DISCONTENT doesn’t appear to be an exciting card on the surface, it’s actually a reminder that when life takes a trip to Snoozeville, it’s time to look around you at what you have. I mean, you’re a living, breathing, creature who is sitting on a rock floating around in the vast nothingness of space, so. If you’re bored then you’re boring. Turn around and see what is!

Pop Words // Nasty

Since the third presidential debate where Trump shared his infamous wisdom about bad hombres and Hillary being a nasty woman, the internet exploded with all things supporting nasty women. It for sure sparked a feminism movement. I’m personally kinda secretly thankful Donald Trump ran for president because it brought to light a lot of issues we have in our country and a good chunk of the country recognizes how much work we have to do to fix these misogynist, racist, and homophobic problems.

01. But back to nasty women, immediately after the debate women everywhere got to work making shirts, pins, patches, and art expressing how much of nasty women they are. Because, you know, nasty women get things done. It’s a true statement.

It seems according to the internet that graffiti is on the rise with people expressing their love or hate for Trump.
Lucky for me, I can still come across genuine NYC graffiti minus Trump’s name, because his name doesn’t need to be on everything.

Living in Queens, I don’t come across as much graffiti as when I visit Brooklyn. So whenever I’m in the Brooklyn neighborhoods, I make sure to take as many pictures as I can. Although not all of these are in the BK ‘hood, so I can’t give them all the credit!

The response from our fellow peers about the decision of whom was elected is pretty exciting. People are still protesting across the U.S. which is great to see, and it’s being recognized which is what we need. It shows that we will not stand up for bigotry, misogyny, homophobia, and racism.

That being said, I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately.

I was raised by two immigrant parents. They are now American citizens, and I know not everyone living here has the chance to call themselves an American citizen. Growing up with two languages spoken in my home, I understand the importance to blend into America while holding onto the culture and traditions of your motherland. I may have the privilege of being white, but I understand how it is having a foreign family while living in a bilingual home.
