A guide to consuming ethically in capitalism
Step One: You can’t
The more I learn about capitalism the more i think about how fucked we all are and there is not a damn thing we can successfully do about it.
Stop consuming, or at least try to consume less. It’s all we can do.
Anonymous: i know you from your past; art school and your travels post-school, have you ever thought about your behavior or your friends behavior during those times? would you ever reconcile with someone whose feelings you hurt or disregarded? we were never really close when I knew you but I'm realizing now that we would've really gotten along. do you think the universe allows some wonderful people to pass you by?
Hmmmmm well. I can’t imagine who this could possibly be. I don’t know. Yes, I’m sure there are many people lovely people that I have met but didn’t really get to know. I’m sorry if I hurt your feelings at some point.
I really need a ride to the east coast after the rainbow gathering. i’m just gonna put that out into the universe now and give it plenty of time to materialize. I got a ticket to evolve fest.

Anonymous: my friend's roommate always makes me feel less than I am. she always comes and chills when I'm hanging out with him and i immediately feel uncomfortable. he's obviously closer to her than with me so I cant confront him about it. When I get home I always feel like I've embarrassed myself or done soemthing wrong. how do I deal with this situation?
well she sounds mean. i’m not sure what she does or says to you but I know sometimes that can’t be explained. I know the type of woman you speak of, i’m sorry you have to be around her at all. if she’s really making you feel bad like that, i’m sure it’s not an accident/. and if she is trying to make you feel bad then I think that means she’s just jealous… Just ignore her and don’t let her get to you. She shouldn’t be making you feel bad. she’s got to get over wanting to keep him all to herself. Why don’t you suggest hanging out somewhere besides their place? Just don’t let her have power over you, she is not better than you just because she’s closer to him than you are. i’m sure it’s annoying but keep your cool and just chill/
i need to get back to being good and feeling good. i need to be still and appreciate what i have and be thankful. i just want to think and say, wow, i’m so happy that i finally have been released from the burden of having a car. thank you universe for answering me very very fast and i won’t say too fast. i am finally going to be walking and hitchhiking, which is what i’ve been wanting to do for so long. not drive around and spend all my money on gas, nope. i want to feel at peace but i know it’s not going to happen quite yet. there is a lot to think about considering that Teo and i plan on splitting up amicably somewhere along down the road where we both feel comfortable. i’m at a crossroads with no idea which road to take. where i will end up, i do not know. i don’t know where i’m going, i don’t know where i want to go. i don’t know what i should do. i am truly a little bit scared and that’s what is holding me back from figuring it out, i think. i really need to focus more on grounding myself while i’m here at my mom’s house. this is a good opportunity to rest and get my head on straight. i know that soon enough this will all be history. i don’t want to wish away the last times i have with my best friend. i love teo even if he’s mean to me sometimes. I want to appreciate him now because i know i will miss him when he’s gone. balanced with remembering that knowing feeling i have in my heart that is telling me to distance myself. i am too attached. i used to be so good and not getting attached. it’s the only way i’m going to get room to grow. i need to breathe, i need festivals, i need to dance really bad. i’m bursting at the seams, anticipating anything and everything. my heart is on fire. in one week i’ll be on foot headed north. something is missing right now, i know it. please universe love me and guide me safely to where i need to be, please. take me home.
Anonymous: How long have you and teo been dating?!
I met him on may 28th last year and we’ve been traveling together ever since.
Anonymous: I'm going to wakarusa for the first time this year! So excited but nervous that I won't be prepared properly. Any advice?
cool! i went there a couple years ago. it was hot as fuck. if you can bring something that would create shade at your campsite that would be a really really helpful thing to have. besides that just bring lots of water and your coolest most exciting party outfits!! maybe a roll of toilet paper and some toys too..
