letsgetthemoon asked: Hey Courtney, admire your work tons. I'm inspired to try some iphone photography and I recall you recommending a site with some gadgets for the phone. You mind blessing me with that site again, please? thanks. :)

thank you :)

i haven’t actually purchased any iPhone gear yet from this site yet & it’s entirely possible to take decent photos with just the phone (which is what I’ve been doing)

but photojojo.com is such a cool site (:

Anonymous asked: Have you ever walked past someone and just thought about how attractive they are. Or in class watch someone working really hard on a problem and just admire them. Maybe someone passes you by and you are just in awe of the way the carry themselves. Now just imagine you are all those things to someone else. People notice you. They watch you. They admire you and the even crush on you. So don't you worry or feel like no one cares or notice you. You are in important and you ARE seen.

i can still be very pro-Black but respect White people

right

???

I met Alyssa’s (white) best friend last weekend and I did not know how to act.

Honestly I expected her to be as bland as a bowl of dry corn flakes (like my sisters ex roommate ugh) but she was very cool, interesting, and energetic. I was immediately thrown and I was kicking myself for expecting her to be so stereotypically white.

She was cute and funny and both of us wanted to make a good impression because we had heard a lot about each other but I was the new girlfriend meeting the old best friend and I felt like there was a lot more pressure for me.

Part of me was like yes Courtney be your usual charming self and yeah impress this person but the another part was like why should I perform for this white girl as if I don’t already feel pressure to do that everyday out in the world and ANOTHER part was like shut up shut up just be yourself this is Alyssa’s best friend get yourself together.

I think she could sense how torn and on edge I was because I’d be talking and then I’d abruptly stop waiting for her to say something offensive (which did not happen), stare at her really hard and/or get up and walk out of the room and she would seem uncomfortable/hurt.

I did not know what to do with my body, where to stand, where to put my hands, her foreign mannerisms threw me…ugh it was a disaster on my part. So many mixed emotions that night.

I should’ve just treated her like I would’ve treated any new person I meet. Why did I let her skin color mess me up like that??? Tumblr has opened my eyes to a lot of things but it’s also had negative effects on the way I view individual white people.
