Facepaint in Africa and Black America
Of the 100 largest cities in America, 62 of them currently have an act in place restricting officers’ use of chokeholds. Whats interesting to note, is that that number had doubled since the death of George Floyd. One of the most drastic failures we can commit right now is to believe that the justice system has only recently become corrupt. No. The justice system has been corrupted and failing the American people for a long time, possibly since it’s epoch. If the justice system fails even one American, then it fails all American’s.
If one knowledgeably manipulates the already racist system we have in order to continue supercharging their own life, I will not call that person my fellow American.
Nationalism is on the rise worldwide. Even so, I am proud to call some people my fellow American’s, but others I am inclined to strip them of their American identity.
Who am I to say that my vision of America is better than other peoples vision? Well…I’m Spark Twain, and I am ready to defend the words I write, any day of the week! I also find my thoughts to be in agreement of many people, and over time I have learned to write confidently.
Everywhere I go – Black Lives Matter. Where tf do you hangout that it’s any different?
Even though most of the people I meet when I venture out into my local municipality side with the positive thinking that is BLM, I am certain that not all of my fellow citizens are on board. So I write, and I write for those that are interested. If you are already supporting BLM then most of what I write over these next two weeks will be nothing new to you! If, however, you are new to the progressive thinking of BLM, well then I am happy you are choosing to read more on the subject. Going directly to their site and reading herstory is probably the most effective way to listen.

Who Are You and How Do You Live?
Doing the right thing doesn’t have to be stressful.
I mean, yes, right now there is increased stress for everyone, but can we not hope, at least, that this is helping to allocate some of the stress from Black America to a more appropriate supporter of that stress. Who gets the stress? It’s not White America…that’s just an Eminem song. White America doesn’t self identify as strongly – or as justly – as Black America. Black America is akin to California in how culturally relevant it is. White America…is Donald Trump, right? Haha, okay, I don’t want to make you feel bad if you identify as a white american. I am a white american! But if I didn’t grow up checking government prompted boxes, such as the ones that ask your race at the DMV, then the first time I would have felt like I found an identity would have been around the age of 17, which is when I concluded to identify as Scottish. I am an American of Scottish decent, and my skin has the hue of an undercooked pie crust…but I can bake.
In my lifetime I have looked in the mirror and thought: “I am America.”
When I went to India I was proud to represent my country. Better me than someone else; at least I’m funny!
Okay, maybe I’m not that funny. But! Seriously, not very many Americans travel. Walking around India, individuals assumed I was from Britain, or Spain, or Kashmir. It was interesting to see the reactions. I wonder how many times I met someone, and that was the first time they met an American…I bet it happened way more than 2 or 3 times. American’s don’t travel.
Supporting your fellow black Americans should not be a stressful process. Just take an interest; do the right thing. You already know what the right thing is. Education level are different, but we all evolve together
My life will not be complete if I don’t visit Africa. That’s where I hear it all started, this life thing; if you believe in that timeline. People are allowed to believe anything they want, and I long ago gave up holding a tough stance on tough stances.
Anybody can worship any God they’d like in my country, and for that I am thankful. But wtf.

Everyday Sobriety Advice
I am a recovered alcoholic/drug addict, but I am not a qualified addiction counselor. To help other alcoholics/addicts achieve sobriety, I have created the mantra’s below. Although I call them “steps,” I believe that all four mantra’s should be recited in concurrence.
When the urge to drink alcohol or use drugs comes upon you, I suggest reciting these four steps, and then implementing an activity to “kill time” until your urge to use drugs/alcohol is less intense. I suggest you use ASMR videos to “kill time”
Good luck, My Friend
Below are the steps of admittance required for using The ASMR.Community Sobriety Program [ACSP] successfully.
Step 1: “Sobriety is a choice, and it is up to me to make the right choice.”
Step 2: “Not everybody will be able to achieve sobriety, but that knowledge does not prevent my success regarding sobriety.”
Step 3: “The urge to imbibe (substances that I know will prevent my success) is finite. Sometimes the urge will exist, sometimes the urge will not exist.”
Step 4: “Sobriety is not the same for everyone. Success is.”
I believe the steps I listed above are a complete, non-exclusionary list of all mental admissions needed to achieve your goals regarding sobriety.
Everybody’s definition of sobriety is different, but everybody’s definition of success is the same.

If you are seeking spiritual guidance, I highly encourage you to check out Tarot Reader ASMR. Her name is Amalia, and she is a kind-hearted individual with a skill for bringing us closer to ourselves.
Don’t underestimate the power of Yoga! Specifically Yoga With Adriene. My shoulder is broken, and so you can do some Yoga for me too. I really wish I could…
If you are looking or more information about ASMR, I’ve found the best place to learn about the subject is ASMR University. Their information is accurate [to the best of my knowledge], and plentiful. I mostly work with the application of ASMR, but there is a whole lot more to ASMR than using it to gain sobriety or fall asleep, including the history and the science of it.
