a literary magazine about heritage, culture, community, hometown, neighborhood, environment – anything or place from the outside that has found its way in.
Maps For Teeth is literary magazine, so yeah, that means poetry, prose, visual art, etc. but we want to stress that we want everything that falls under that umbrella. Literally everything. It’s a huge umbrella. So give us the polished, the raw, the stuff you produce that makes you scratch your head when you try to categorize it. Do you have a review? A reaction to a piece of art? Do you have comics? Doodles? Collages? Journal entries? Interviews? Send it. All of it.
DEADLINE: September 18th // firstname.lastname@example.org
whoakay so. mental health experiment time?
For the rest of the summer I think I’m going to try to actually blog, or something. Or at least, you know, actually reblob things instead of just liking them.
I think I try to kind of cultivate my tumblr page as this really condensed thing that I can look back on later and kind of vaguely remember what I was feeling at the time. Whereas I like things (outside of people’s personal things that I’m trying to show support/acknowledgement of) more liberally like when it’s something I think I might want to remember or look back on but probably not, but it’s there and recorded if I want it. Or if I just really like it at that moment.
So, note to self: that’s what you were doing up until, like, page 26 of this particular tumblr account. After that, for like a month, you post a lot more, just as an experiment in how that goes/feels.
Unless of course you decide to just step away from the computer entirely and focus on reading books or something, also a possibility. Probably going to do that for at least a week at some point actually.

I am far far far far far far too poly to function guys
On Humans of NY there is this guy and his caption was like “she got pregnant with another man and asked me to be the godfather” and all the commenters are like “ouch!!!!” and I’m like “awh she loves you”
In reality probably/maybe it is a bad situation
But not inherently. Or at least it shouldn’t be… Bleh I dunno just a lot of subtle things make me sad.
… one’s real duty to the future is to do as you should do now. Make the best choices, do the best work, fulfill your obligations in the best way you can, and work on a scale that’s appropriately small. Make plans that are appropriately small. If you do those things, then the future will take care of itself.
