My letter to Jimin
“All I knew about Cuba was that people drove old American cars and that Ché Guevara was tied with Bob Marley as most popular poster in dorm rooms. Then my friend Erin invited me on a 2-week trip to Havana. The first thing I noticed in Havana was that the city was dark at night. There were no streetlights, porch lights or living-room lamps. It was pitch black except for the faint colorful glow spilling out of open doors everywhere, and it came from the TVs. The light captivated me. For the next two weeks I wandered around, slipping in and out of strangers’ living rooms. Each time I came across an open door and a working TV set, I would ask if I could take a picture. The answer was always yes. Nobody seemed to think it was an odd request and it was usually accompanied by a Cuban coffee or rum.”
I want you to know that it’s okay if all you managed to do today was breathe.
It’s okay if you didn’t manage to get out of bed.
It’s okay if you didn’t get that piece of work done.
It’s okay if you couldn’t socialize today.
I’m proud of you. Tomorrow is a chance for a fresh start. Stay strong and be safe.
I feel lonely and stuck in my ambition 😔
I look up to Yoongi. I don’t know what it is, but he’s awesome. His style, his mind. I want to produce music like him. He’s chill, and I think I’m most similar to him. He’s had depression, and I’ve had depression for 6 years. I’ve had and still have anxiety. But he figures out a way to push though it. He’s becoming happier and confident in the way that he is. I want to be confident in the way that I am. I want to make music, and dance. I want to spend a day with him, chill, talking, just having a good time, and some fun, some laughs, together. I want to be this type of awesome. I feel stuck in my ambition, without the confidence to do so. I lack in that way, and I just want to get over that hump.
being touchstarved makes u absolutely buckwild when someone does smth simple like .share a chair with u
like having someone touch your hand with the tips of their fingers shouldn’t feel like So Much it shouldn’t feel like your whole body is going into anaphylactic shock but here we are. here we are.
ok 2 many of u relate
Someone gave me a compliment and reached out and squeezed my hand and I fell in love and couldn’t speak for several minutes
I was just gonna type this in the tags but I have to say this.
Growing up in North America is surreal.
Every tiny little blip of physical affection is deemed as sexual interest.
Boys aren’t allowed to hug eachother because “that’s gay.”
Girls can’t hold hands because “are they going out?”
And GOD FORBID a female friend hugs a male friend.
Having lived in the Netherlands, and reading up about shit like this, Canadians and Americans are starving.
I went to Japan for a school trip in 2012. I went to a highschool there.
There were boys hugging, lounging on those blue gym floor mats, holding hands, trowing their arms around eachother.
I was startled by how shocked I was.
This mentality of “if you’re touching you must have sexual interest in the other person” is so fucking disgusting. Hug your friends. Hold hands with them. Touch their hands when you want to reassure them.
Normalize platonic physical contact before we all die from lack of it

“The 13th was our birthday the 7th anniversay. So yesterday was the end of our contract. But thanks to good agency and colleagues we can work together for a longer time. So let’s give it a hug! […]
We were happy doing this and I speak for the others too. Everyday is so special for us we wanted to see you earlier, but it’s sad we don’t get to see you face to face, but soon hopefully soon we’ll come to see you.” (Kim Seokjin)
Can I have a boyfriend give my leg soft warm kisses 🥺
