I am excited about researching and learning more about a topic related to my degree field and to hopefully make some new friends along the way

For my research topic I chose immigration in the United States. Right now I am in the process of obtaining my degree in Homeland Security so this topic is very related to my future career field. Since immigration will play a big role in my future I wanted to take a deep dive in to researching it and determine what the pros and cons are of immigration in the United States. I was thinking of narrowing it down a little more than just immigration, and focusing on just one group of immigrants, like hispanics or muslims. In America today we are very divided when it comes to this topic, and this is another reason I want to research on immigration; to determine all the pros and all the cons so we can find a middle ground for both sides to agree on.

I largely prefer being made to feel different for being black instead of for being disabled – but neither are pleasant

When you’re a disabled person like me, there are certain things that able-bodied people always say to you. I’ve only been a wheelchair-user for six years and I already feel as if I’ve heard it all thousands of times before. Because I’m black, I don’t only hear the things that disabled people frequently do, I also hear things that black people often do too. Here are all of the things that I constantly hear from able-bodied people, as well as the things that they frequently do when they see me:

I’m going to start to be more edgy and wild

Keywords: {0}

I want life experience and I want to not care so much about what I should do or how I should act. I don’t care about that anymore. I’m going to live for me and be the bad bitch I know that I am. I am going to look super innocent looking but in reality be very smart, thoughtful, edgy, wild and someone who just does not give a fuck. I love dressing edgy and I love being edgy. Fuck being an innocent child. Fuck that shit.

I have majorly upped my self-care game

I realize that we are all a bit wounded. We carry our history in many ways; I carry mine scratched into my flesh and as ridiculous overthinking in my brain. Some of us can’t commit or don’t want to commit to anything serious because we have been so hurt by what life has handed to us. Some of us sublimate our pain and desires into other distractions–work, food, wine. Most of us think we are not worthy in some way because we are older, odd, or fail to meet society’s expectations.

Wise people “will know what is right, do what is good, and therefore be happy”

Sometimes you can even help by not doing anything at all. When you do people around you become more friendly and experiences the smiles and laughs of other is what in the end brings happiness to my heart. The second connection that I made is that I made was with an idea of Aristotle. He believes that in order for us to be happy we need to be our true selves. I identify with the idea because this is who I am. I always think that I have the ability to help the other, and it’s my nature to take care of people.

A huge support for all of my goals has always been having a community behind me and making what I call ‘friendship dates’

In that way, we are supporting each other in shared goals during our date.

We are not only showing friends they are important to us in this way, but showing ourselves that we are important enough to choose the right people to be around for us and the right ways to use our limited time together.

With everything going on right now surrounding South, we feel as though it is our duty to make sure our voices are heard and that minorities actually feel like they are wanted here on this campus. As we said in the studio today, “you want to make us feel like we belong? Play our music”. And that is exactly what we plan on doing.
