I feel so bad for not being able to donate, not money not even blood :(

please don’t feel guilty anon. let jay’s compassionate and loving spirit live on through your actions and in the way you interact with the people around you.

be kind to others. do your best to be a good person. every single day, no matter how hard it is. 

always remember that the people around you are fighting battles you know nothing about and that sometimes people do or say terrible things because they’re in pain. it’s not easy, and it doesn’t mean you can never get upset about people being shitty, but try to make the choice to be as compassionate and kind as you can.

if it makes you feel better, i can’t donate blood either (which i already knew) but i also just found out that i’m not actually eligble to be a stem cell donor either because i have a chronic health condition that makes it unsafe (for me rather than the person who needs the stem cells, go figure). 

donate your time to help others. donate your kindness and empathy to people who are in need of compassion and a helping hand. that’s just as (if not more) important than giving blood or giving money <3

The signs as Winnie the Pooh quotes

  • Cancer: "If there ever comes a day when we can't be together, keep me in your heart, I'll stay there forever."
  • Leo: "If you live to be 100, I want to live to be 100 minus 1 day so I would never have to live a day without you."

  • -A.A. Milne

Even though a lot of crazy things are going on around us, I honestly don’t think it’s been that hard to stay down to earth. I look around me and I can see how people could get carried away, because if you lived completely in the fame bubble you could end up thinking you’re the greatest thing ever. I almost feel a bit sorry for people whose lives get completely taken over by it, because I can see how hard it would be to stay grounded.

I think you just need to take a step back from it every now and again, remind yourself of what it is you’re involved in as a whole and get it in perspective. It’s a very cool job, but it doesn’t make me any better than anybody else.

I can’t promise that I’ll never hurt you or make you angry. In fact, I can tell you now that there will be times where I’m stubborn or distant and you’ll find it incredibly hard to deal with me.

But once I’m yours, I’m yours and I’ll never take you for granted. I know how much thought you put into the nice things you do and say and I’ll appreciate all of it. I’ll make you food at 3 am because, unlike you, I am an excellent cook. I’ll force you into taking an insufferable amount of pictures so I can show everyone how gorgeous you are. I’ll make you stupid mix CD’s filled with songs that remind me of you just because I can.

So no, I won’t be easy to love and I’ll probably drive you crazy. But I promise that I’ll fight very hard for a spot in your life.

—  Midnight thoughts (give me a chance to show you how you deserve to be treated)

So lately I’ve been letting people get to me. Since I’ve started college I’ve been exposed to a lot of hate and discrimination. Honesty people have been so rude. They’ve been making fun of me and laughing at me and it’s all been really hard, and for a second I forgot who I was. They’ve been saying horrid things about my weight and my hair and some have gone so far as to make fun of me for having albinism. I can’t leave my room without someone saying something or doing something rude and it’s kind of ridiculous. I forgot how much of a gem I am.I have a natural unique beauty. I can’t blame them for staring, it’s not everyday you see a queen walking around.

I’m not good at keeping in touch, or eating the right food, or sleeping enough. I’m not the best at saying how I feel, and I can’t seem to say no. I’m bad at not apologizing for the ate I exist. I’m always tired. I’m good at loving people though. I’m good at laughing too hard. I’m good at making memories, and staying out too late, and I’d like to think that even thing I’m not good at taking care of myself, I’m learning to love myself.

i think one of my favorite lyrics on sgfg is “i’ve got one foot in the golden life and one foot in the gutter” because it’s like an acknowledgement of how their current lifestyle may not be permanent, and it sort of says that if they aren’t careful and work hard to reach their dreams, then they can still fail completely and end up living a miserable life. it’s also a way of saying that they won’t take their current position for granted and that they’ll keep working hard to make the music we all love. and idk i think it’s a really mature thing to write about and i just love sgfg and 5sos so much

I was just thinking and I’ve just gotta say that if I were to have millions of people judge me and criticize me for every single little thing that I ever do I would not be able to handle that especially since I lack self esteem/self confidence.

So good on you Jack, I can’t imagine how hard/annoying it must be sometimes to deal with all of that. You just do you, do whatever makes you happy etc. etc. insert more inspirational sayings here

Like I said, I don’t think I’d ever be able to handle that :P

People have told me

That I am too hard on magical horses recently, between posts like “Centaurs aren’t named for being half-horse, they’re named for how much like they like to murder the shit out of cows”, the whole “There are 5000 kinds of faerie horse and all of them are dicks” thing, and making horrible faces in the direction of Ponyfinder.

In my defense, I worked as a stablehand for two summers when I was a teenager. I can safely say that -normal- horses and the stuff that comes out of them? Also awful. So how much worse would magical horses be?

It’s like wizards. Once you add magic to something, the capacity for it to be a huge asshole increases exponentially.

No matter how hard you try to get over someone, you will still have some sort of feeling for them, remembering the ways things used to be, and how they are now. And you sometimes hope that the new person in their life was still you, and everything was how it used be, erasing all the bad things that happened. Time is supposed to make things better, but in love it doesn’t. Although we have been apart for a while, and now have different loves in our life, I still can’t help wondering how your life is, and when I catch you glancing at me, I can’t help but wonder if your heart beats a little faster, as mine does when I see you.

I’m not the most eloquent speaker, so I thought I would borrow a few words from Shakespeare. ‘Love is not love which alters when it alteration finds.’ When life gets hard, when things change, true love remains the same. I look at Nathan and Haley and some how I feel safer. I don’t know if I can explain that, but they give me hope. And, I’m afraid say it out loud because maybe if life finds out it’ll try to beat it out of them and that will be a shame. Because, we all can use a little hope sometimes, you know. That feeling that everything’s going to be okay and that there’s going to be someone there to help make sure of that. So, here’s to Nathan and Haley, and here’s to hope, and here’s to a love that will not alter. -Brooke Davis

did you know
sand dollars grow heavier skeletons
in rough water?

& did you know
young sand dollars
can’t make themselves heavy enough
so they eat pebbles
to weigh their bodies down?

& did you know
the things
just to keep this body
safe from the current?

& did you know
when I say the current
I mean
this body;

& did you know
there is a man
I can only talk about in metaphor,
the way his tattoos
make an avalanche
of my mouth

(even now)

& did you know
there are whole years
I have dropped
to the bottom of an uneasy ocean;

& did you know
this is how we evolve?
Hunted girls
grow shells
& they call us
“hard women.”

As if survival
could ever be delicate.

As if we haven’t been chewing rocks
for generations.

As if we haven’t been rebuilding
our own bones.


“She doesn’t take any interactions for granted, and she won’t hide it if something isn’t worth her time,” Fincher says. “But once you get to know her you realize she’s a playful girl, very funny, with a biting wit.”

“She doesn’t operate from a place of fear,” Jonze says. “She’s looking at the whole picture, and wants to figure out how to live her life.”

For Soderbergh, Mara has “the X factor that you can’t really teach, that watchability that an actor needs. My job was to make sure my camera was in the right place to capture it, to get what she was putting across.”

“It’s been very strange, jumping from one character to the next,” says the chameleon Mara. “All of them were very intense experiences… . I really feel sometimes like those things are happening to me. Obviously they’re not. But it’s hard going from one to the next. And I’m hypercritical of myself,” she adds in a masterpiece of understatement. “Anytime I see anything I’ve done, I wish that it had gone differently because you figure it out as you go along, and you’re always discovering new things. I’d probably feel that way about anything that I did.”

Dear Taylor

Hey Taylor the day I met you I didn’t get to say everything I wanted to say to you bc I’m stupid and I freezed and I cried I’m so sorry there was a lot of people and cameras and I panicked and freezed so you always say you love letters so here’s my letter to you! Taylor first off thank you for inspiring me to achieve my dreams and to realize that I am capable of reaching my goals and dreams I just have to work very hard for my dreams just like you did. I’ve always had insecurity problems with my body and that really really sucks but you have helped me realize that I shouldn’t have to feel this way I should feel confident and strong and beautiful and that’s how you make me feel. Rock in rio was an out of this world experience and I wish I could go back every day. Taylor if we ever reunite I hope I can say these things to you face to face and not panick and cry uncontrollably, anyways love you and thank you for everything. taylorswift

is there anyone you can call? have you got nobody left at all? your back’s against the wall. is there no place else you’d rather be? did you give it all up just for me?

All right, who do I complain to about the lack of canon Bart childhood information?

Bonus simple transparent running Bart for all your shenanigan needs:

it is okay to feel tired and drained. you should not be expected to be on top of it 100% of the time. take a break if you need it. it doesn’t make you weak, it just makes you know how strong you are that you’re willing to do that for yourself. as far as anxiety I’m not very sure on how to give advice for that. I’d say that it is best to try to take deep breaths, think about it a little but then try to occupy your mind on things that are more beneficial. Are you anxious about a big test? If so study so hard that you feel like you can do great. Are you anxious about relationships with friends and family? Change your thoughts to something that makes you less anxious, listen to a good playlist, go for a run, mediate. Sometimes it’s not that simple and I understand. With whatever you are dealing with just know you can be strong. Sending you love @copper-wings

They say God gives his toughest battles to his strongest soldiers and what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. And as much as anyone can say how invincible I seem, or fearless I am, or how brave I must be… I’m still human. And I’ve seen things. And I’ve felt more pain than some will in their entire lives. All before the age of even being able to buy a fucking drink at a bar. But I have to be strong. Not for myself, but, for a greater purpose. Because I feel like my duty is far beyond me… You know? Beyond saving my family. It’s for the world. Because somebody out there really needs to hear this. So to anybody that isn’t here to see how far I’ve gone or how far I have yet to go, to family members that didn’t make it, or friends I lost along the way, or maybe someone I gave my heart to that didn’t know what to do with it. You should be here.
—  “Intro” from You Should Be Here, by Kehlani.
Being in love is great, don’t get me wrong. The kisses, the “I miss you” hugs, the cuddling, the love. Everything about falling in love is what makes a person remember how great it feels to have butterflies in your stomach and to have your heart beat so fast that your chest is going to explode. Being in love with someone is amazing. But being in love with your best friend, god that is fucking the best thing I could ever ask for. Being in love with the person that makes you laugh so hard that you nearly have snot coming out your right nostril and makes your stomach turn inside out. Being in love with the person that you share secrets with and gossip about people with, the person that says “fuck her baby, she don’t know a damn thing” kind of best friend. The person that you can lay next to at night and can’t sleep until 3 am because you were talking about how people can’t learn their damn differences between they’re, their, and there, and then laugh about it. The person that you argue with about what kind of food you want to eat, or who’s going to be the one to get up from the bed and turn off the light. The person that you can lick their face and they won’t look back at you with a confused face, but sticks their finger up your nose. The person that won’t only being the shoulder to cry on, but the shoulder that will bring you back up and make you stronger than before. The person that will tell you whats wrong and whats bothering them instead of being distant and ignore the situation. Loving someone that you can share memories and laughs with, god it is beautiful. Being in love is great, don’t get me wrong. But being in love with your best friend, that is the most wonderful thing I could ever ask for.
