the imperfect is our paradise
So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.

you a bitch

It’s called copula deletion, or zero copula. Many languages and dialects, including Ancient Greek and Russian, delete the copula (the verb to be) when the context is obvious.

So an utterance like “you a bitch” in AAVE is not an example of a misused you, but an example of a sentence that deletes the copular verb (are), which is a perfectly valid thing to do in that dialect, just as deleting an /r/ after a vowel is a perfectly valid thing to do in an upper-class British dialect.

Once again, AAVE combines several of the grammatical rules of west African language groups with the vocabulary and format of English. It is not “incorrect”, it is a cultural heritage that descends from the roots of black history.

The same roots that people like anon always try to cut.

When I was a kid I thought your 20s were supposed to be fun, not filled with perpetual anxiety about financial stability and constantly feeling like an unaccomplished piece of shit. 

That’s because it was fun for baby boomers and they basically gave us this impression it would always be like that, but then they ruined the economy.

The baby boomers are like people who come to your house and have a party but then don’t stay to help you clean it up.

Except in this case they came to your house when you were gone and the party ended before you got back.

ohana means family. family means having your life choices questioned and your flaws pointed out to you

You might as well study something that you already love, because then you have a really interesting lens through which to see everything else. And that’s going to stick with you a lot longer than trying to force yourself to study something that you don’t feel passionate about.
