My calc prof usually does not curve our exam raw scores until the end of the semester, but everyone did so badly on the exam last Friday that he went ahead and curved this one. I skipped class today, but I looked up my curved score just now and it turns out that I got an A.
This is a Tacky Grades Post and I’m not even sorry. I’m just so fucking glad that there is ONE thing in the entire world I did not irrevocably fuck up last week, thank god thank god thank god.
I really want to get good at printmaking or embroidery or SOME kind of medium
I want to do ~art projects~ that are about writing myself dumb notes and pretending they have a lot of intention and meaning
Like, “you’re right: that was weird” and “it’s definitely not your fault”
that movie Lucy tho. I’ve been saying forever that white women perpetuate violence against bodies of color just the same as white men. But that violence is often less visibly marked because it’s the violence of coerced emotional labor, of cultural appropriation, of fetishization under the guise of womanly solidarity. Now there’s a movie with a white woman performing masculinized violence against bodies of color and of course white women are fist bumping all the way to white feminist heaven. It’s nothing new. Whether through the intimate violence of emotional invasion or the physical violence of guns and fists, white women have never been innocent of racialized violence.
