Xabi Alonso for Vanity Fair
Today is my 21st birthday!
2 decades later & I’m grateful for the epicness that 21 brings because college is behind me, I have no debt, I’m learning a lot about moving on & letting go, I’m experiencing new beginnings, I’m dropping the dead weight & having priorities & it can only get better from here….
I’m 21 & I’m okay with this.
I think the reason why twentysomethings are so fixated on age is because we feel a pressure to be a certain way at 23, at 25, at 29. There are all of these invisible deadlines with our careers and with love and drinking and drugs. I can’t do coke at 25. I need to be in a LTR at 27. I can’t vomit from drinking at 26. I just can’t! We feel so much guilt for essentially acting our age and making mistakes. We’re obsessed with this idea of being domesticated and having our shit together. It’s kind of sad actually because I don’t think we ever fully get a chance to enjoy our youth. We’re so concerned about doing things “the right way” that we lose any sense of pleasure in doing things the wrong way. Youth may be truly wasted on the young.

Nobody has to deal with americans more than other americans.
I am an american and I can verify that this is indeed true.
#everyone else gets to be annoyed by Americans from afar #while Americans have to be annoyed by other Americans loudly and up close
It’s about fucking mutants stop trying to making this meaningful.
Media—comics, film, literature, video games—exist for us to find our own meaning and value in it. Especially mutants, which are a super powerful and accessible metaphor for nearly anyone who has ever felt maligned for reasons beyond their control. Shut up.
The X-Men have been an allegory for racism ever since their creation you fucking idiot
