Happy Thursday! I’m actually wearing some makeup.
I have tomorrow off! And it is beautiful day. 😊
I just did hill sprints. And I’ve had a really great eating week mentally. I feel really happy and positive this week.
This is a nice feeling. Plus I have Friday off and get to see my parents. 😀
"'I am beginning to measure myself in strength, not pounds. Sometimes in smiles"
Nobody gives the black girl mob credit for being smart as fuck. They clown but at the end of the day they are really intelligent.
And it’s not subtle at all.
Taystee is a math prodigy in addition to being well-read, Poussey is multilingual, Cindy just knows shit, Suzanne studies Shakespeare, Watson was a good student in addition to being a track star, Vee is basically an evil genius. Piper often learns the most from them; they taught her how to fight and helped translate Pennsatucky’s biblical threat.
The show flat out acknowledges the (academic) intelligence of the black inmates time and time again, but the audience collectively ignores it.
ALL OF THIS
