PV 4 Thoughts, changes
So, if you’ve been following me for awhile, you’ve heard me talk about my project PV4, which is Play Vicious 4.
I started it a couple of years ago with the intention of it being a media site that posts stories about all kinds of cool stuff. In part it will still be that.
However after talking to a of really smart people and examing my own motivations for building, I decided to expand what PV4 is going to be. Check it out here: https://www.patreon.com/Are0h
Look, here’s the thing. I’m not going to say what you want. I have my views and perspectives that I believe in. If you need me to have a specific posture to mimic your particular sensibilities for cooperation, then we’re just not going to get along.
But if you’re about equality, justice and fairness for _all_ peoples, I’m in the fight with you. Every day. Even if you don’t dig me.
My commitment to progress is not based on being liked. I just want us to get free.
Aye folks. I don't how other instances will operate, but I can promise Social will be a safe space for us to talk openly about issues without wasting effort on people that don't want to listen.
I want honest convo on my instance, but if one cannot do that respectfully and without resorting to childish taunts, they will be shown the door.
I'm the big brother you call when someone is getting on your nerves.
I got your back. Always.
I love #introductions. Let me do a proper one.
I'm Ro. I design, develop, overthink and on occasion, make beats. Check out: https://thetwelfth.house And before you ask, yes. I am.
I'm also a history buff and I think a lot about social theory. Ha, you've been warned.
Needless to say, I got a lot going on. But I'm pretty cool... generally.
So I've been focusing on endurance and conditioning mostly and cleaning up my eating habits and I'm very pleased with the results.
I've gotten a bit leaner and my muscle definition is starting to peak through a bit more.
I'm gonna stick with this routine for awhile to see how far I can go. If I can stay consistent with me eating habits, I'll look pretty good in a few more weeks.
job seeking & career building as a black person feels so dehumanizing sometimes. literally the only career opportunities i've had are from other black and brown people, or once in a blue moon white people that are actually proven allies (not just say so) and have consistently backed it up with tangible actions. we really have to support each other and create opportunities for each other otherwise nobody else will
@nein09 out here living her best life.
I'm kinda hatin...
#DearWhitePeople we will not, as a society "Age out" of racism. Activating the 18-40 voter block will not magically wipe out racists voters. Even if you are not *as* racist as your parents doesn't mean there aren't tons of racist folks successfully passing on their values to their progeny.
You do not get out of addressing these systemic issues by waiting for old bigots to die.
Alana Beard, one of the greatest WNBA defenders ever, is retiring and wants to become a VC and eventually set up her own fund that focuses on women and PoC founders.
I'm so sad that she's leaving, but I get it. She's 37, has businesses to run and a new baby to raise. But she's staying on the west coast, so that's cool.
Ro vs. Sweet Pages
The car ride from that point was pretty pleasant as we just talked through our issues, what we're struggling with in relation to each other and what we want.
We're both recovering from ending long term relationships, so we're both kind of taken off guard that we get along how we do.
It's complicated and kinda messy. But she did say she wants us to keep talking and gave each other a pretty epic kiss as she dropped me off.
Ha, I guess that'll do for now.
Ro vs. Sweet Pages
She looked at me in surprise and I just repeated it.
I said yeah, eventually I'd like to get into something like that and if you feel like you'll never get there, then I'll go my way.
But if you're saying you need time, I can work with that because we have a great relationship now. I said I'm not trying to rush her. I just don't want to waste my time.
She nodded and said she understood. She didn't want us to stop seeing each other either.
Ro vs. Sweet Pages
She had a couple of errands to run before she headed to work so we just rode around listening to podcasts for awhile, not saying anything.
Eventually, we started talking about it and why we both felt how we felt and to clarify some issues about our relationship and where it was going.
She said she's trying to get to a point where it she can be in a relationship again, but it's gonna take awhile.
I said I didn't expect her to jump into anything. I just like being w/ her.
Ro vs. Sweet Pages
So we've been talking a ton over the past few days and while they usually go well, I was getting the impression she just didn't want to commit to anything, which is fine. There comes a time you just have to accept what people are.
I crashed at her place and this morning I said that it's probably better if we just stop seeing each other if she believes it's not gonna go anywhere, which *hurt* to say, but I felt it was needed.
She said she'd give me a ride home, so it was quiet
I mean... it's the 21st century, man. Information has never been as more accessible.
If one doesn't know what whiteness is and how it effects us all on a daily basis, it's because they don't want to know.
Folks are asking about the basics of racism and hate not because they want knowledge, but to frustrate the conversation.
It is very easy to learn about the history of whiteness and its effects.
Having a good exchange means doing your own work instead of harassing people for free labor.

can someone please help me budget this my worker morale is dying
In other news, Sweet Pages took me to a sex shop yesterday and the person was working there turned out to be a HUGE fan of POWER, ha which Sweet Pages, absolutely refuses to watch with me.
She sold it in a way that I couldn't and now Sweet Pages said she's willing to check out the 1st season with me and give it another shot.
Best. MLK Day. Ever.
So, I have some news: I’m still looking for a job, and my brother is living in his own place now. While I’m living with my girlfriend, I still need help, since a job is hard to come by and I’m going back to college in the spring.

Sweet Pages and I, dating thoughts
The situation would be so much easier if it was just about sex and just a mutual casual relationship. To be honest, I think that's what it was at first.
But we talk a lot. We really enjoy just hanging around each other and being in each other's space. Sometimes it's physical sometimes not, but we always enjoy our time together.
It's complicated b/c we're both trying to get over ltrs ending and trying to figure out if we want to do it again with each other
