ughhh job interview today, my train leaves in two hours and i think i’m gonna puke

Anonymous said: Hey, I remember reading a post (or a reblog) on your blog regarding cultural appropriation in Frozen. What do you think of mohawks and similar styles? I have a mohawk and I'm not debating between growing it out and keeping it. Really love it as a style and it fits me nicely but I've become more aware of stuff like this so now I'm kinda worried people might think I'm a jerk for it? Idk. Just curious about your opinion. c:

oh wow this is an eternal question that i have spent many a night crying over because i don’t know

i mean i know that the style as it is today has definitely been appropriated from native american cultures and that sucks balls but then again it has also taken on new meanings with its long association with punk and everything it represents so ughHHHH

like i honestly don’t know at which point the new cultural meanings become relevant on their own or do they ever, and if they do does that mean that they have independent value that is equal to the value of their origins or will they forever be ultimately offensive

and if so should they be discarded despite their relevance

this is a mystery and i am not qualified to give you an answer imho

because i have no idea how to approach this subject i probably wouldn’t get a mohawk now (i did have one for several years in my teens because they’re so fucking cool and i didn’t know squat) for much the same reasons why i wouldn’t get dreadlocks either (i had those for a while in my teens too…….)

but like i don’t have the authority to tell anyone to wear their hair a certain way and tbh i still think mohawks are beautiful and dreadlocks are beautiful and everything is beautiful so i will not think ill of anyone because of their hairstyle so ummm i don’t know i’m sorryyyy

Forget me not

In Slovene, these are called ‘spominčice’, which would loosely translate into ‘little memories’. The different perception of the world through different languages is fascinating to me. 

In Polish: niezapominajki (don’t-forgets). I wonder why these flowers mean memories in so many different languages

in finnish they are “lemmikki” which means “the favored” or “the beloved” which i think is pretty cool too
