Happy Birthday to the beautiful Amanda! 

"Somebody told me that this is the place where everything’s better and everything’s safe."

ALRIGHT KIDS, SIT DOWN AND LET ME TELL YOU A THING ABOUT WHAT’S GOING ON HERE

Mark Ruffalo, know for his activism and his Hulkiness, recently showed support to Brazilian presidential candidate Marina Silva, who’s being painted as a “Green president” which is not fucking true. Her campaign is financed by one of our biggest banks and we all know how banks feel about nature, right? Her background as Environment Minister is messed up, and I wish I could give you more details but I’m too angry to do research right now. Mark posted a video saying “it would be a gift to Brazil and the world to see someone with so much understanding of human struggle” but unfortunately, this hole is much lower than he thought. Yes she has a history of overcoming poverty and fighting for human rights and environmentalism, but it’s history. That was before she took sides with the most corrupted fundamentalist parties, and a series of bad decisions. Unfortunately, she lost her chance last elections (when I voted for her).

People on Twitter alerted him that besides the controversy I just mentioned she’s a shameless homophobic LIAR who turned down her LGBT proposals the day after they were published because one stupid pastor made four tweets complaining about it. She also refuses to use the word MARRIAGE when referring to LGBT rights and prefers the term “civil union” that means bullshit. And that same pastor is supporting this PIECE OF FUCKING SHIT OF A HUMAN candidate who made the most horrendous homophobic speech last night (watch it here with English subs if you have the guts). He should have left the debate ARRESTED but we don’t have a specific law against homo/trans/biphobia BECAUSE OF PEOPLE LIKE MARINA SILVA, SILAS MALAFAIA AND LEVY FIDELIX (he also implied taht Bolivian president Evo Morales is a drug dealer). In the video, the woman who asked Fidelix about LBGT rights is Luciana Genro (my queen diva supreme candidate fuck yeah 50). She and Eduardo Jorge are the only candidates who openly speak about the issues that bother fundamentalists and conservatives (but sadly don’t have any more than 1% of votes), including reproductive rights and drug regulation, but unfortunately none of the seven candidates said anything to reprehend him during the debate. 

BUTT Mark Ruffalo is smart enough to know that hundreds of mentions in his notifications box couldn’t be random. He posted a beautiful apology on his Tumblr and unlike her, who keeps changing her mind every hour and acting like nothing happened, did not pretend it wasn’t a mistake.

It makes me so sad that the n#2 candidate on the presidential run would rather crawl and beg for an international celebrity’s support that care for the actual problems of her own people. And the #1 is not better at all.

These elections are being so dreadful I wish the World Cup would come back. At least it’s giving us a lot to make fun of (and cry about). After all, that’s we do best… laugh at our own faces.

Natasha + Guilt

1 (Lady sings the blues) - The feeling that you experience after a break up is horrendous, no question.

But don’t think that you’re being ridiculous, those feelings of anger, sadness, denial and grief are all totally normal.

However, instead of trying to ignore them or beating yourself up about feeling sad, the best thing you can do is to just go with them…

Don’t be afraid to cry hysterically, make your way through five tubs of Ben and Jerry’s or consume a few too many bottles of wine - whatever works for you, just don’t bottle your feelings.

2 (Don’t torture yourself) - The problem with a messy break-up is that you’ll never find the answers you’re really looking for.

You fantasise a million different situations as to why he has broken your heart like this.

Maybe he’s just too stressed with work? Maybe he just needs some space to breathe?

Don’t waste your time soul searching over why the relationship ended, texting him for his thoughts and wondering “was it something I did?”

Face up that it’s over, and look to the future.

3 (Cut it out) - The only way to get over someone is to try and live your life normally without constant reminders of them around.

That means a bit of a cleanse (it’s tough love time):
• Cut all ties with him - no phone, no Facebook, no communication, no excuses!
• Stop reliving your relationship with your friends on the phone. Thinking about the ‘good ol’ days’ won’t help.
• Removing all reminders of them from your home, car, and work space. That includes the little passport photo of him you keep in your wallet.

If you can’t bear to throw things away, put them in a box, tape it up and hide it somewhere hard to get to - preferably guarded by three headed dogs.

4 (Rediscover your single side) - It’s a cliché, but it’s true - when you enter into a relationship you leave behind bits of your single life.

Although some aspects might be best left in the past, there will be some things that you will want to reclaim.

Time to get that haircut you always wanted but he didn’t like, blow a shed-load of cash on outrageous shopping sprees and get back to doing the things that you put on hold for him.

Start saying ‘yes’ to every opportunity that comes your way - if you used to turn down work drinks to be with your other half, now is the time to get out there and mingle.

This will help on two levels - you’ll be reminded that being single can actually be a really great thing, plus you’ll be so busy that all thoughts of “him” will disappear.

5 (Take your time) - It’s been said that the quickest way to get over someone is to get under someone, but frankly, we disagree.

The quickest way to feel even more miserable is to sleep with someone you’re not really interested in.
Ignore your friends and their “helpful” advice, and make sure that you move on at your own pace.

If you want to take a break from the opposite sex for a year then so be it. And equally if you want to get right back out there you have to do what feels right for you.

No one should judge you or push you into meeting someone new sooner than you’d like. The only person who can make you feel better is you!
