I just realized that THIS is who otipemsiw reminds me of! As a darker, more Indigenous version, but yeah.
This is the correct face to make when being told you’re a heinous bitch.
Always my favorite.

Tim Riggins Speaks of Waterfalls
You want to know what it was like?
It was like my whole life had a fever.
Whole acres of me were on fire.
The sun talked dirty in my ear all night.
I couldn’t drive past a wheatfield without doing it violence.
I couldn’t even look at a bridge.
I used to go out in the brush sometimes,
So far out there no one could hear me,
And just burn.
I felt all right then.
I couldn’t hurt anyone else.
I was just a pillar of fire.
It wasn’t the burning so much as the loneliness.
It wasn’t the loneliness so much as the fear of being alone.
Christ look at you pouring from the rocks.
You’re so cold you’re boiling over.
You’ve got stars in your hair.
I don’t want to be around you.
I don’t want to drink you in.
I want to walk into the heart of you
And never walk back out.

Not only is this poem legitimately awesome but, Tim Riggins
"Add to that, I’m no longer watching television in which middle-aged men figure out how to be men. I’d rather watch shows about teenaged girls figuring out what it means to be a monster."
I don’t watch this show but I love this idea.
What better way to illustrate the seemingly unending, annoying daily obstacles we face than with an endlessly looping animated gif?
