Oh, haha, I guess the "coming to my place" thing sounds a little dramatic without context -- we both live on campus, so we're basically a five minute walk away from one another's places? I'd be much more weirded out if that wasn't the case?

But idk, things were alright! I have to let myself be comfortable with the idea of dating around rather than going on one date with a person and deciding whether or not we're "an item", if that makes sense? Like not everything has to be so high-stakes, and maybe we just go out on a couple of dates and that's all that comes of it.

Either way, it was a really nice gesture!

I GOTTA BE HONEST, I still like the Harambe meme :/

I absolutely feel for the zoo and I think it's totally unwarranted that they're getting dragged into the meme through direct confrontations, but someone on Facebook described the appeal of the Harambe meme really succinctly:

It's reacting against the social media outrage against [the child's mother and the zoo], by elevating the gorilla to a stature that would make the outrage proportional.

And idk, it almost seems like lately there's been so many awful things going on in the news that it feels like we just don't have the energy to react with the appropriate amount of outrage. So the faux-outrage of Harambe feels like a way to channel the energy of very real, very scary things in the news into something that ultimately isn't quite as high stakes as the meme makes it out to be. The world feels tiring and scary lately, and all of the shouting about it doesn't seem to make a difference. Shouting about Harambe doesn't change anything either, but we don't really expect or hope it to.

This doesn't make the zoo's view or reaction unjustified, and like many memes, it has been taken up by some shitty people (which was discussed in the other thread). But maybe our collective weariness makes Harambe all the more appealing.
