Take Me To A Higher Plane
My name is Shruti, and I'm learning to unapologetically be me. I'm 21, in college, a chronic escapist, and too distressed/poor to sate myself (though I've been pretty lucky so far).

I think I'm pretty chill. The pace/connections of modernity are great, but I do need my alone time.

I like to discuss television/pop culture, contemplate
life, dance to MIKA, and eat uttapam and jalebi.

Remember when African ethnicities were mocked for stretching their earlobes and indigenous folks for “sticking shit” through their septums , but once such practices were adopted by industrial nations during the 80’s/90’s and white folks/White punks/White hipsters started to do it, it was all cool, unique, civil and “Original”?



the best thing that ever happened to me in high school was about 6 years ago our teacher never showed up for class and neither did the sub so one of the guys in the class just got up and started discussing his various theories about the island in lost and started drawing different diagrams on the board and ranting about his fan theories and everybody just went with it and raised their hands for him like he was the teacher and that was the class.

"The main reason I’m reluctant to get married to Mindy is that every single person in our lives and Twitter feeds would say, ‘I knew it.’ I just couldn’t fucking deal with that. But we know. We know what’s there." - B.J. Novak



why do white feminists think ‘BUT WE NEED MORE LEADING WOMEN IN THE ACTION GENRE’ is a good excuse to watch lucy do they honestly believe hollywhite just completely missed GRAVITY and the ENTIRE MOTHERFUCKING HUNGER GAMES FRANCHISE what do they think the funding for ‘lucy’ is coming in the wake of?

they boycott pacific rim (which, yknow, had a japanese woman shoving some of hollywhite’s most racist & sexist tropes so far back up its own ass it was still tasting them the week after) for not passing the bechdel test but blatant violence and racism, well that can slide, that’s great representation, that’s empowering for women.


"you speak english?"

boy i sure do feel empowered seein people who look like my dad & my friends get murdered for not speaking english IN TAIWAN

What’s weird is this line has shown up in Hollywood movies twice already in the past year (2013).   It was used both in The Wolverine andOlympus has Fallen—both films feature the white hero vs. Asian baddies screaming “SPEAK ENGLISH” to some hapless Asian minion and then enacting violence on them.   So that joke isn’t even original.    

What is wrong with you people?! Huh?! I thought you were supposed to be friends? I thought you were supposed to love each other? Your love is weird and toxic and it destroys everything it touches!


i think sexism in rock music is definitely something that should be addressed but the only genre that ever gets slammed for misogyny is rap I wonder why

I don’t know where I am but I know I don’t like it
I open my mouth and out pops something spiteful
Words are so cheap, but they can turn out expensive
Words like conviction can turn into a sentence

"breezy and engaging"
but do u know how hard i have to work to make that seem natural?
i am actually a nervous wreck.
i put on all these airs, hoping they’ll rub off on my general vibe and calm me down for real, but if there are too many forces, i crumble. i hate how much i need the support of others in doing things, especially when i’m insecure (which is most of the time), that when i attempt to be strong, i balk. i don’t trust that i can do it—while at the same time wanting to believe that i can.
i like that i have a calming presence, and though before, it’s felt like i have been a killjoy (always about the srs topics, ugh), i’m glad i can make people feel lighter when they’re in a sea of distress.
i need to work harder to be that person for myself. and i need to trust myself to be myself. and maybe then, by better sustaining myself, i won’t keep crying after everyone, expecting them to coddle me. it’ll work. even though this method has thus far failed.
