The First Grader (2010)
The true story of an 84 year-old Kenyan villager and ex Mau Mau freedom fighter who fights for his right to go to school for the first time to get the education that was never available to him.
sometimes i think i miss it or i that i miss you. i even start to think that it was all actually healthy, or that i had it good, but then i remember all of the humiliating shit that i had to go through and i’m glad that i’ve moved on from it all.
no more letting people hurt me without consequences. no more of dealing with pettiness and cattiness. no more of allowing myself to think about annoying, passive-aggressive people who try to control me or belittle me, or of settling for less of the kind of love that i deserve. i respect myself way too much for that.
lesson learned, never settling for less and cold-turkeying things that aren’t good for me in the long run.
silver lining: because i don’t have truly “happy” memories before last year or anything that i can call my “glory days,” i can only assume that those days are ahead of me and that i ought to keep myself focused on the future instead of dwelling on what was and what could’ve been.
Wish I didn’t live in my head so much.. my head’s a mess
