True dream chasing, chasing, surpassing the greatest I’ve ever been even more.

Instagram has taught me that if something is pink and attached to a tree, people will tag it as “cherry blossoms.”

Anyway, these are flowering almond:

These are magnolia:

These are dogwood:

And these are balloons:

Please note that none of these are, in fact, cherry blossoms.

I have been struggling to think of what to say, so I stopped thinking. I was convinced I didn’t know who I wanted to be. Then I realized, the answer was all around me…

surprising i know

There are entire communities and social groups and experiences, stories, memories, etc in “white” countries without any white people too.
I long time ago I wrote a high school drama type of serial story about a social group that was mostly East Asian characters and one white character.  I based it on my own HS experiences and people I knew.  A lot of people liked it.  But I showed it to a white friend of mine online, and she said she didn’t like it.  I asked why, and she said it was “unrealistic” and racist.  I asked why it was racist, and she said because most of the characters were Asian, there was only one white character and he was a side character, and she couldn’t associate with any of the mains because they weren’t white.  My response was “turn on the television, welcome to my life.”
She said that was different though.  That’s “realistic” and everybody can understand those characters.  Even though my story wasn’t really any different except it was Asian people having teen drama, it was “unrealistic” because we all know social groups of Asian people don’t exist, and it’s racist because when you have mostly non-white people in a story, then it’s weird and strange, and white people are the “every person” who everybody can associate with, but non-white people are niche.
