Blondie | ‘Atomic’
Eat to the Beat (1979)
Detail from a 1952 Van Heusen sport shirt advertisement.
y’all are like “ooh everyone is beautiful” “ooh everyone deserves to feel hot” and then three seconds later you’re making fun of people who cover their acne with makeup and people who haven’t mastered winged eyeliner yet like grow the hell up you don’t get to pick and choose times to be body positive
i get it now. i get the certain brand of people refuse to try, refuse to give what calls for a 100%. i get why they resign happily, slowly to a life of mediocrity, to a life where things are sufficient.
because when you try and you try and you try and you try really hard in the things you do and you don’t get what you expect in return, you wonder
what did i get myself into
what am i doing wrong
what is it that i’m missing
slow sighs masterfully and craftfully disguised as tiredness, sleepiness, drowsiness.
i’m not disappointed that i’m not good enough. i’m disappointed that i tried.
