100 days of happiness: Day 4
The weather is really nice today and it was a nice change of pace to not have to wear my heavy ass winter coat for a short while. The sun is shining and I’m keeping my mind off of things that stress me out by only thinking of the positive things.
I have anxiety, and it’s one of those things that happens when it happens. It was exceptionally painful for me last night– icepick, migraine-like head pains and an aching side. I was anxious about finals and getting work done. I kept dozing on and off everyone now and then only to see my girlfriend watching me on Skype and asking me questions.
Eventually I fell asleep happy with the fact that I felt cared about even though my girlfriend was quiet after a while. I fell asleep with hope that tomorrow will be a pleasant day.
Positivity breeds positivity. Love appreciates love.
But for any Man to say he doesn’t date any woman of his own race, the same race as his mother, that is ignorant. “Love has no color.”
How then can you say you choose not to love a woman just because of her color? Not only is that ignorant, that’s a half truth. The truth is any Man who says they can not date any woman of their OWN race, because of her race, is really admitting he is a coward.
Move over kale, there’s a new superfood in town and it’s here to end world hunger.
The could-be hero is called breadfruit although it doesn’t really seem like a fruit at all. It’s large with prickly skin and tastes like a baked potato or — you guessed it — bread when prepared.
Breadfruit grows on tall trees in tropical areas like Hawaii, Samoa, and the Caribbean. It’s high in energy from carbohydrates, low in fat, and has more potassium than 10 bananas.
But how will this tropical fruit feed the world?
According to the National Tropical Botanical Garden (NTBG), more than 80% of the world’s hungry live in tropical or subtropical regions — the type of environment that is perfect for growing breadfruit trees. These trees are very easy to maintain and can bear an abundance of fruit for decades.
Organizations like Global Breadfruit and NTBG’s Breadfruit Institute are dedicated to promoting the superfood and spreading it to areas of the world that need it most. “Every time we plant one of these trees, we’re reducing the susceptibility to famine and starvation in the country where the tree is going,” said Josh Schneider a horticulturist and partner to Global Breadfruit.
And then in a month you will see it in wholefoods where white people will pay $20 for it and all the people it was supposed to help will instead be making criminal wages so some disgusting dirty hipster can ignore whiteness and condescendlying look down on others for what they can afford to eat.
Imma need folks to reread that bolded a good 10 times until the point sticks
lmao we been known about breadfruit
it’s a staple in a lot of west indian households, we grow it on my parents farm
white people stay late to everything
white people think they discovered food
wtf lmaooo breadfruit is called kos in Sri Lanka and we’ve been eating it forever and a dayyyyyyyy you can eat kos when it’s still green, you can eat it when it’s full-ripe and you can eat it when it’s over-ripe and pungent. you can roast the seeds. you can make curry. you can eat it like yams. literally kos is the greatest thing ever and if i see this in whole foods i’m going to shove one on the head of every white hipster with dreadlocks
…The fact that they’re so earnestly being like “IF WE BRING THIS TO SUB TROPICAL REGIONS WE COULD FEED THE PEOPLE THERE” when the people there have been eating it for years and years and years is just SAD. SMH, fellow white people-stop acting like things only start to exist when we “discover” them. Just. Shut. Up.
P.S. If breadfruit becomes like quinoa and white people wanting it drives the prices up so native people for whom it’s been a staple for years suddenly can’t afford it so Joe Blow at Whole Foods can buy it and brag about how, like, environmentally friendly he is…I will cut someone.
Reblogging this for the commentary.
My dad said in Dominica it is called yampen or something like that. But yeah please don’t Columbus this too!!!!
FOR BOLDED: But yeah please don’t Columbus this too!!!!
Stay away from lovers who only want you in parts,
Legs open. Mouth closed.
Beauty-full. Mind empty.
Silence is a good look on you…
No wonder your smile is their favorite feature.
Beware of them.
Of lovers who love your lips but loathe your voice
Their kisses come with possibilities of cutting your tongue away.
