I know I’m prolly the worst human of 2014 to say this, BUT:
I’ll be so happy when people stop pooping their pants over food trucks, food trucks, “OMG FOOD TRUCKS!!!!!!”
As a brick-and-mortar business owner, I get a little peeved when food trucks upon food trucks unhitch their trailers at my doorstep. Don’t get me wrong, it’s public domain or whatever, but I actually handpicked my location. I busted out cash and energy, and worked long and hard to renovate THIS EXACT PLACE into working condition; I continue to shell out cash once a month to hold my keep, and to stay in this one place.
So when I see a food truck roll on up with little to no effort, in front of my tiny bakery that is not even on the downtown square, it makes my head spin. “Why here?” That’s the always my first thought. But like, PEACE LOVE & FOOD TRUCKS, amiright?
I didn’t spend all of my money & heart & spirit on this place so someone else could suck up the fruits of my labor with a tiny, transient, biodegradable straw.
Okay, that has been a discussion on food trucks.▲ | reblog
Sincerest apologies to all of my faraway friends who have played/will be playing shows in Bloomington this month; I won’t be there.
Not because I’m tired.
Not because I’m working at the bakery.
Not because I don’t care.
But because these shows actively involve abusive people that are undeserving of my support.
If you want to talk about it, you can email me.
If you want to pretend like you don’t know that there is something terribly wrong with this scene, you can do that too. No matter. I’ll be doing my thing, peacefully thinking of you.
You know where to find me.▲1 | reblog
Nowadays, I don’t even bother to think about the bullshit that is The Owlery anymore. Then I get a reminder of said bullshit and all I want to do is compose a big fat list of truths entitled WHY I WILL NEVER SUPPORT THE OWLERY EVER AGAIN.
Today is one of those days.▲4 | reblog

There’s too many good quotes in this to choose one. If you have a few minutes, take the time to read this thoughtful piece about trust, apologies, and letting go by MariNaomi.
I am currently experiencing my own feelings of being a Phoenix rising from the ashes of a destroyed friendship, so this comes at a time when all I can do is nod my head in stern agreement with this article.

I think I am going to make some pins from this. Do you want some? I will post them when it happens.

So dang sick of seemingly intelligent people actively supporting abusive humans. Will someone in Bloomington* please prove me wrong? Or will you all just blindly fall into the asshole abyss? Or maybe you won’t take the time to address these thoughts at all, which is equally as offensive, really. Or maybe you’re passive, an apologist. Great.
A powerful man is strong. An abusive man is forgiven.
A powerful woman is a bitch. An opinionated woman is crazy.
*There are still some good ones, yes. Not all hope is lost for this town.▲6 | reblog
