Yesterday somebody laughed at my dreadlocks and called me a "mosher". Today I was called a "nigger" and several people stared at me with sarcasm and laughter in their eyes. Considering the fact that I dress differently on a day to day basis, I found it kind of insulting to be called a "mosher" because it makes me sound like some 14 year old skater. Being called a "nigger" was even more perplexing, for two reasons. First of all I'm not black, but I'm assuming the (white) person who called me that disgusting name assumes that I'm trying to be more black with my dreads or something equally ridiculous. Second of all, dreadlocks didn't originate in just one place, like Jamaica. They've existed in India and perhaps many other places for quite a long time, so educate yourself before you say stupid, prejudiced things. It's easy, mmkay? From now on I will just ignore them.
Today I dressed up like a pretentious artist and took stupid pictures of myself. Skip if you're sick of my face. Enjoy if you're not.

That last one is my favorite.
