a letter to your parents
Dear Mama&Papa, I am eternally indebted to you and by “indebted” I don’t only mean all that tuition cash moneyz you dished out to UCS-Deez Nutz for me to follow my dreams, but for everything. Everything. From making my childhood a wonderful memory I, at the ripe age of 24 dearly miss to showing me how to become a responsible loving citizen of the world that sees beyond...
The Frenemy.: Wedding Bliss →
thefrenemy: Ever since I was a kid and I played with my shotgun wedding Barbie, I’ve felt like I was sort of forced to think about MARRIAGE. I’m sorry, did I say marriage? I really meant the expensive ceremony before the marriage where I dress like a cupcake and slow dance to Luther Vandross. I was…
What makes you different from everybody else?
I’m a fucking mystery bag! And I’m usually always down for anything (except casual sex or things that go against what I believe)
I want to take it to a whole new level of thinking. I want to tear down existing institutions and ideas based on draconian beliefs about love, freedom, my people, and liberation. Let’s dismantle these 2-dimensional black-or-white simplistic ways of thought and get fucking real. I’m not one to compromise my pursuit of justice and liberation by trying to merely transform unjust...
Nicknames and why you have them
Clauds and several derivations of Claudia. Claudzilla was self imposed. Yaya because the babies call me that. Nothing extraordinary nor revealing of my personality.
Plans/goals/dreams that you have
I want to be a teacher, I want a part in the radicalization and empowerment of our youth. I want to paint, I want to create, I want to write poems and essays, perhaps a book(s). I want to do stand up comedy and improv and someday become a castmember of SNL. I want to create works that challenge people and their fucked up ideas about my identity. I want to submerge myself in collective knowledge...
Someone you would switch lives with for a day and...
A baby, a sleeping, eating, pooping selfish baby that just chills all day and gets all kinds of love and attention. Or a cirque du soleil performer so I could do all kinds of amazing things with my body.
Things you've learned but still don't understand
Catholicism. Some household appliances. Opening this old safe we somehow still use at work on the first try. Jackson Pollock (shout out to my VIS21 TA) The excess of ruffles in Valentino’s work Computer programming Many many more countless of things that I can’t remember right now.
At this very precise moment I feel completely safe and peaceful. I am in particularly on the futon of the guest room at my Mama and Papa’s house wrapped on a bright red warm fleece blanket. It’s a bit chilly outside but it’s warm inside, my head rests on a fluffy feather pillow and I’m channel flipping. If I find something good on basic cable at this early hour, I...
Put your music collection on shuffle and list the first 10 songs that play. “Love Letter” by Julie Ruin (remember lil firecracker braceface 16 year old Clauds?) “It’s No Game (Pt. 2) by Bowie. (I posses his entire discography, don’t be surprised if he more Bowie pops up again) “Klongyao” by Johnny’s Guitar from one of my favorite albums ever...
A letter to somebody who has hurt you recently
Hey you, What you said the other night was not cool. It significantly hurt my feelings cause I love you and care about you. I appreciate that you apologized. Sincerely, Me
How you found bout tumblr and why you made one
I believe I found it through either Think Mexican or American Apologies. I got one mainly for aesthetic purposes in the attempt of climbing out of this year long writer’s block.
What makes your workplace special?
The unlimited supply of shitty coffee, the stories we make up about clients, the benefits it offers, and that one spot in the back where we keep the office supplies :) Making the best of it?
Wishin' n hopin'
Maybe my eek-a-mouse pandora station and a cup of coffee will make me feel better on the 30 min commute.
Songs you listen to when you're...
Somber: anything by Joy Division, perhaps Bauhaus-ish kindda music Dull: “Oh Sweet Nothing” by the Velvet Underground Exhilarated: “Blue Skies” by Ella Fitzgerald Vexed: “Break Stuff” by Limp Bizkit…jk hmm perhaps “Dreamer” by Cihuatl-Ce or some People Under the Stairs “We’ll be There”
