but most is true

10

This sweet little baby bean has touched my life. Born August 29th, 1958 and passed away June 25th, 2009.

Today marks the 8th anniversary of Michael’s passing and like most true fans, we mourn but we can still celebrate how wonderful and inspirational he is and was.

Michael Jackson is and will always be the King of Pop. He literally is a king too, King Sani in a tribal village in Africa! Jackson was always proud of his black heritage.

One of the things I love about him is his personality. He was misunderstood by many people (one thing in particular was his love for childlike things, but he always said that if you want to understand this, listen to his song “Childhood”). His personality people didn’t really understand. Jackson was a kind, gentle soul. His thoughts about music, life, and everything he spoke about or wrote about were expressed in a philosophical way. He was intelligent, humble, soft spoken, and very shy and grateful. He had a rich inner world (like a true introvert) and fans like myself always say: watch interviews to get a sense of who he really was!

Another thing I love about him is that he would show cultural appreciation in the things he did. He was all about embracing culture, individualism, love for each other, and the end of hate and ignorance. The epitome of what he was all about was to change the world for the better.

Michael really was a unique man. His attention to detail and his aesthetic-they contribute to why he’s such a legend. He was a genius and knew what would make people crave for more.
He reached global fame, one reason for his iconic dances. The moonwalk wasn’t invented by him but it definitely became his signature move. The Thriller dance, the “lean”, Billie Jean? He revolutionized dance. Another reason for his globalization is his philanthropy work. He donated $300 million dollars overall to 39 charities and holds the Guinness World Record for donated the most money as an entertainer. Everything he did was about raising global awareness through his music, his concerts, and videos. He created a scholarship, a foundation, and he’s created worldly renowned songs about encouraging people to help and take action to make the world better.

He really was a genuine entertainer. People had never seen anything like him-his outfits, his moves, his dances, and songs: they were all creative and inventive. Jackson’s carried on legacy reached global impact. The statues and memorabilia across the nation, the albums released after his death, and the reoccurring performances by impersonators carry on his spirit.

His albums: iconic. Thriller is known as the greatest album of all time. It went platinum in a week! Each song on it was literally a hit. It was #1 for 39 weeks; in the top 10 for 80 weeks! It was inducted into the Guinness Book of World Records for this. With his music, he received numerous awards and is known for winning 8 Grammys in 1984, which is also put in the Guinness Book of World Records. He’s actually in there 39 times! He’s won 26 American Music Awards, 13 Grammys, one of the few artists to be in the Rock in Roll Hall of Fame TWICE, 16 World Music Awards, has been honored by TWO Presidents of the United States, and many many more that I can’t name but because of all of the awards he’s won, he’s now dubbed the most awarded recording artist in the history of popular music.

All of his albums resonated with people. Jackson revolutionized the music industry, fashion, and dance with his innovative work and even paved the way for black artists. Say what you want about Michael Jackson but he is one of a kind. There will never be another Michael Jackson and nobody can deny his tremendous impact on the world.

Thank you Michael for blessing us with your creativity. You’ve touched this earth. You’re one of the most beautiful people to walk this planet (also literally because just look at him??).
I love you so much, I wish I could have met you or attended a concert but I’d say that seeing one of my favorite impersonators gave me closure.

Continue to Rest In Peace, angel.
And P.S. you may have been lonely sometimes but you were never truly lonely because you had us. You still do, always and forever.

" woman doesn't mean mother"

I’ve noticed it more and more recently, people demonizing women for not wanting to have children.

A maternal instinct and urge isn’t found in everyone, we’re not all built hard wired to want kids, and when these women speak to that they are almost always met with a disgusted and shocked look with an undertone of “ then what even is your purpose” and that has to quit.

The decision to not procreate isn’t synonymous with selfishness or being self absorbed.

It could be for a plethora of reasons:

- kids aren’t financially feasible for every human on this earth. Being aware of your economics can make someone choose to spare a life that would come into this world parent well knowing they wouldn’t be accommodated with maybe even the most basic necessities of living.

- especially true in millennials, but a fear of passing down mental illnesses has been discussed to be a huge reason to not want to procreate. A quote that I pulled from online “ My mother was diagnosed as manic depressive, I grew up afraid of her. In my late teens, I too was diagnosed manic depressive and vowed to be the one to stop the cycle of madness. Why would I choose this struggle for my offspring, when I wouldn’t have chosen it for myself.”

- pregnancy can take a serious toll on your body, a toll that some bodies are literally not made to handle.

- with kids comes a tremendous pressure to make perfect decisions, even if pregnancy there is this overwhelming sense that there is a tiny growing person inside you depending on you to make healthy choices.

- instances with children already around you have always been an awkward and anxious experience.

- The world isn’t always a nice place and Sometimes the decision to not be a parent is as simple as wanting to spare a child from having to live in a world of jerks. Factors such as global inequality, bullying or a general discontent with society, many people don’t want their considered offspring to have to deal with the world’s problems.

And lastly kids may not be on the agenda just purely because you opt to focus solely on personal growth and hey, that’s okay too.

Whatever your reasoning to (not)becoming a parent is yours and yours alone to make. I just wanted to make this post to reassure my many friends who have chosen out of motherhood and are told daily that “they’ll change their minds” that they are not crazy, and are no less of a woman for not wanting babies.

125: Do you believe in true love?

Yes most definitely

64: Tell us the story of your first kiss?

I’ve never kissed anybody so no story

13: Do you like it when people play with your hair?

Oh my god yes, its so relaxing to me 

i really resent that laci green has managed to catapult herself back into the vlogosphere. i don’t watch vlogs, and even i’m seeing her shit. she’s so boring and gullible and utterly lacking in insight, and even when she approaches a true statement she does it in the most shallow way possible.

Delete your blog its trash

Ayyyeee anon, one step ahead of you on this.

Already considering deleting it, so who knows, your rather authoritative message/wish might just come true in a couple days and you most probably will be blessed with my deactivated account, soon.

Good to know we think on the same wavelength though!

Why does it seems like only 1 person does most of the work on this blog? There's 4 mods and yet I usually see 1 person answering most of the questions.

((Mod ♠️ here! It might seem like I’m usually the one running the blog and for the most part that is true. I just tend to be on tumblr a lot more often and I tend to draw faster than the other 3 mods. 

Mod 🎲  is currently busy doing a portfolio so they haven’t been able to draw anything for this month. Not to mention we all have our own lives and that there are instances where we might get busy. Our lives don’t revolve around this blog, we have other things we want to/need to do.))

anonymous asked:

I know this may seem like an obvious or stupid question, but how can I be myself? For years I've been trying to be someone that I'm not...how do I get back in the groove of just being me ?

You need to make a list of characteristics that you believe to be natively “you”. Ask yourself why aren’t you displaying these traits anymore. Moreover for what reason is it required for you to be someone different? Why don’t you believe you’re sufficient. And how don’t know that you’re not being yourself, rather you’re merely adapting to the situation? Also you need to write down the characteristics that aren’t you. Avoid these traits as much as possible. Lastly you want to spend most of your time around people whom accept the real you. By doing this, you allow your true self to emerge most often. If you realize you cannot do this because of your friend circle–it’s time to get new friends.

Life can get you down so I just numb the way it feels, I drown it with a drink and out of date prescription pills.
And all the ones that love me they just left me on the shelf.
My farewell.
So before I save someone else, I’ve got to save myself.
And before I blame someone else, I’ve got to save myself
And before I love someone else, I’ve got to love myself.
