Everyone’s favorite witch duo will be performing tonight 🌟 That’s right! @klaragofficial is doing a very special and unique acoustic set at the @livehousehwd for free at 7pm and I’ll be doing a lil original something with her. Besides me, she has other two very special surprises in store. You absolutely do not want to miss her first show in the USA so come through and support our Swedish Queen with a heart of gold and that sweet bitchiness we all came to love 💕 #ootd#tbt#liveconcert#liveevent#musiciansinstitute#livehousehollywood#stylequeens#modaqueer
In times of darkness, stay by your loved ones.TW: Fires 🚨
I hope not only the Malibu/Thousand Oaks community can come together to rebuild (I’m sure that’ll happen) but I hope us in LA area can come thru will support.
Last year, Sonoma County went through some horrifying times and we still didn’t learn, and let horrible laws regarding housing pass, for example. And now fires are happening again up north and down here.
If the federal government is refusing to acknowledging global warming, climate change and scientific proof that late capitalism is directly responsible for the current events leading to natural disasters, communities need to come together and rebuild.
Donations will be needed, man(people)power will be needed, time and support for people’s health and mental health will be needed. The trauma of surviving a disaster can lead to sever consequences and the populations effected all around California will need support. Especially does with less $$ access.
Keep all this in mind. Also, please, avoid breathing the air outside. Don’t open your windows if you’re in the LA area, don’t breathe in the fumes unless you absolutely have to, and if you’re like me and you have bad lungs, please stay inside. I’ll be posting some lung remedies later.
Non binary people are real. Trans people are real. Y’all fuck up my pronouns all the time. I’ve become so tired of educating people when it comes to gender that I just “gave up” but I shouldn’t have to live like this. But I’m so small in this scale. If I, fluid as fuck and often do id with she/her pronouns get upset when my queerness/fluidity isn’t validated, I can’t imagine what other trans folks who don’t have the same privileges I do feel. So if you’re in the US and you care about the lgbtqia community please take some time to educate yourself on what the trump administration has to say about transgender people. Staying silent right now is agreeing with violence. Denying people’s gender identity is violence. Transphobic jokes are violent. Words can be violent. That’s the tea. #lgbtqia#transrightsarehumanrights#transrightsmatter#lgbtqiaplus
I have to tell you about her. She’s been visiting me. Again.
Loud, clamorous voice that insist I will never be enough on anything I do, making me question every movement, from the moment my alarm rings to the moment I put the phone down.
She hides in the persistent and restless movement of leg while I can’t keep myself sitting in just one spot. She’s with me when I bite my nails-skin to the point they bleed. She clings to me, obsessively, even when I try to smile through a cup of coffee with a dear friend. It should be my moment with somebody else, yet she can’t let me go for one second. She spies on every text anyone sends me and assures me they hate me. She’s the one who doesn’t allow me to sleep at night. Ever.
I look at these scales and notes I am supposed to study, somehow I should learn these by heart, but she blindfolds and deafens me, steering me away in the other direction: “you’ll never learn this, sweetie!” Her voice is so familiar to me, her tempo is the only one that I keep up with, her embrace is velvet compared to what’s around me. If I don’t cave in to her words, I’ll end up somewhere I don’t know and the uncertainty keeps me bound hand and feet to her lying self.
She consumes me, this anxiety, she owns me and I have no say. I belong to her and her alone.
I believe the most abusive relationship I’ve ever had has been with my thoughts, with her. No matter how much I progress, even when her voice is weaker, she still reminds me every now and then that I might be powerless forever.”
I’m sharing this letter I wrote with you all because I think it’s truly important to address mental health. Talk about it. Move on. I’ve been better than I was before, but I have a long road to go through and some days (like today) I feel hopeless, but unlike other times I feel hopeless, this hopeless feels a little less overwhelming. I don’t know if it’s because I have a safe space, I’ve been eating regularly, and because I’ve been journaling every night and keeping up with spiritual practices but I’m trying. This pic was taken on a horrible mental health day that turned out better in the end. Faith. And keep working hard.

Thank you @jinxzhou_ for this pic ❤️🔥 Everyone, keep the fire alive, keep the fire burning forever. If your passion is well fed and nourished, your drive will remain pushing you forward. •
Achei que tinha postado isso um milhão de anos atrás mas aparentemente não. Throwback pro meu primeiro show em LA. Engraçado como tudo acontece quando você precisa que aconteça, e esse show foi uma benção num momento de incertezas. Obrigada pela foto Jinx!
