Finally came up with a cover up tattoo idea (it will replace an occupy/anarchism tattoo on my forearm). It’s both personal and political. It’s basically going to be about the intermarriage practices in Brazil, how that has made up family, as well as my own identity.

The truth is always an abyss. One must — as in a swimming pool — dare to dive from the quivering springboard of trivial everyday experience and sink into the depths, in order to later rise again — laughing and fighting for breath — to the now doubly illuminated surface of things.

Franz Kafka (via darksilenceinsuburbia)

(via heavy-minded)

All courses of action are risky, so prudence is not in avoiding danger, but calculating risk and acting decisively. Make mistakes of ambition and not mistakes of sloth. Develop the strength to do bold things, not the strength to suffer.

I received my first email since I decided to no longer use Facebook. They want to know if I believe feminism has just provided more ammo for conservatives…

Lol, bruh, no.

..the credit system, which in its first stages furtively creeps in as the humble assistant of accumulation,… soon becomes a new and terrible weapon in the battle of competition and is finally transformed into an enormous social mechanism for the centralisation of capitals.

I’m working Friday - Sunday from either 10-6pm or 11-7pm this week but I kind of prefer it that way. I can still go out, get enough sleep that I avoid a hangover, or get work done in the morning and evening. I prefer to have my days off in the middle of the week because it’s better for people watching, getting work done without interruption, and retreating into privacy. The weekends and night life always manages to suck me in by forcing me to imagine all the possible encounters I could be missing out on, and I often just end up disappointed, bored, and alone the same way as if I had just stayed home. Free time during the week means less distraction and more peace.

When [Lenin] underlines that there is no pure democracy, that we should always ask whom a freedom under consideration serves, his point is precisely to maintain the possibility of a true choice. Formal freedom is the freedom of choice within the coordinates of the existing power relations, while actual freedom designates the site of an intervention that undermines these very coordinates
