sometimes i want to wash my hands of being american & just claim full mexican but i know it’s not true.
both sides of me are valuable in different ways.
shoutout to people working weekends and overnights and overtime, people working in hospitality and retail and food service, who are sacrificing time with their loved ones, so fuckers with weekday desk jobs get to live comfortably with the amenities we provide while simultaneously shitting all over us for not getting “real jobs”
i was talking to this cute boy at school. and when he greeted me he tried to do this handshake WHICH I DID NOT KNOW so i ended up half holding half shaking his hand. and i was so embarrassed i am still not completely recovered. Like i’m embarrassed that i don’t know universal urban handshakes. so embarrassed. if i went to public school this never would have happened! i am so determined to bump into this boy again and proceed with the handshake successfully. like, disappointed in myself…..
