@shalalas I guess I was too slow and the door behind me caught one of my shoes which jammed it for a bit. Very embarrassing. This exacerbated my already existing fear. URBAN FEARS ARE REAL.
@rathermarvelous Seeing pictures of people doing those fish pedicures ICKS ME so much.
I'm also terrified of spiders and bugs (all bugs, including the ladies), but I'm not embarrassed of this.
Getting trapped in a revolving door (happened once) and also those revolving claws in NY subways.
I'm very interested in the unlearning of "perceived whiteness." Over the past few years I feel like I've been able to occupy myself as a white-non-white person, but then entering certain spaces (the corporate workforce) has made me re-question myself. Where on paper I am clearly not-white, in person I am perceived as white, and get push-back when I try to assert my racial identity....i don't know, i don't know how to handle it without being an asshole.
I'm really glad you discussed this, and would love to see more posts about this in particular, both in how it relates to self-care and outside of that.

@shalalas forreal though, ouch. "fuck orchestrating the perfect screw" is right.
I have not read this yet, but my skimming eyes read the title as "The Best Time I Shit Out of My Hand...." and I just did this face @__@ before re-reading.
Great tips, though.
@D@twitter I do basically the same thing. Natural shimmery eye shadow + either a pen liquid liner or pencil on top. No flaking.....although, sometimes I like putting the shadow on top of the liner because it gives it a cool metallic/almost blue hue. But yeah, I only do that when I'm not looking for a "black liner look" or whatever.
