One thing I have discovered recently (shamefully) is that privilege isn't just about the color of your skin. This is a topic that I've been thinking about a lot recently and something I realized about myself, is despite the fact that I'm a person of color, I have a lot of privilege other people may not have.
Here is a list of privileges, with the ones I have in bold (and obviously the ones that aren't in bold I don't have). This list was pulled from Buzzfeed, but you can get different lists on different sites. I recommend everyone read through the whole list - even though I know it's a long list - as these are all different privileges you and I may or may not have.

This past weekend was the Memorial Day weekend. Memorial Day is a holiday where Americans remember soldiers who died serving the country's armed forces.
My family decided to go camping. The drive was about 3 hours and we arrived in Taholah, an Indian/Native American reservation near Ocean Shores. For those of you unfamiliar with Indian reservations, it's an area of land managed by a Indian/Native American tribe under the U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs. Taholah is a reservation that is part of the Quinault Indian Nation.
We arrived in Taholah because my dad wanted to go fishing. The best part of Taholah were the dogs. They had a no-leash law, meaning your dogs don't have to be on leashes. This meant that dogs are free to roam the town and we came across two dogs that really liked us!

I haven't done a life update post in a while and thought it would be a good idea. I would also like to shout out and give special thanks to Chynna, Brandy, Claudine, Tannya, Pauline, Tara and Gom for their heartwarming comments <3
