hello there, you beautiful human being,

i hope that you're safe and healthy as of right now and that you're taking care of yourself properly.
the world is a mess right now and i know that nothing i'll say will change that fact, but if i can at least reach one person out there, that's fine with me.

i am aware that i haven't properly spoken out about the things that are happening in the united states. however, i want you to know, that black lives do matter, every single one does and we need to strive for justice for every single soul taken by the law forces overseas and all around the world. i've personally been signing petitons and educating myself to get as much knowledge on the topic as i possibly can.
i will be continuing to support the black community and it's members, on and off screen (i know that a collection is not enough, but i just wanted a place to state my opinion on seperately than an article) and i want you to know that i am aware about the privilige i have as a white person and i hope i will be using it even more correctly in the future to educate people on the fact that every person is the same and no one should be scared to go on the street in fear of getting their life taken away.

moving on to the main part of the article, my birthday was on the fifth of june and i've seen many of these ... things i've learned at ... articles and i wanted to do one myself. here it is.
better late than never, am i right?
enjoy.
