this is the first time i have cried after arriving home and i can’t tell if it’s because of exhaustion from a 17 hr drive that i mostly did on my own or because my next destination is Saint Petersburg, Russia, or because I’m not done crying from leaving all my friends and boyfriend or because i’m on my period

— Hey, hippie girl, you Mexican? On both sides?
— Front & back, I say.
— You sure don’t look Mexican.
A part of me wants to kick their ass. A part of me feels sorry for their stupid ignorant selves. But if you’ve never been farther south than Nuevo Laredo, how the hell would you know what Mexicans are supposed to look like, right?
There are the green-eyed Mexicans. The rich blond Mexicans. The Mexicans w/the faces of Arab sheiks. The Jewish Mexicans. The big-footed-as-a-German Mexicans. The leftover-French Mexicans. The chaparrito compact Mexicans. The Tarahumara tall-as-a-desert-saguaro Mexicans. The Mediterranean Mexicans. The Mexicans w/Tunisian eyebrows. The negrito Mexicans of the double coasts. The Chinese Mexicans. The curly-haired, freckled-faced, red-headed Mexicans. The Lebanese Mexicans. Look, I don’t know what you’re talking about when you say I don’t look Mexican. I am Mexican. Even though I was born on the U.S. side of the border.”

so after spending 5 days in bed watching movies n netflix (with some nice family bonding in between) i was determined enough to go on a (short) run this morning (which turned into afternoon) and when I got home all accomplished and sweaty it hit me like a train that I actually have about a million things to do in the next week because i only have a week here (and a few of those days will be dedicated to more family time/celebration)
wow i better get to it
