Flinthamilton appreciation week, day 1: Why You Love Them
While the quote above is James talking about Silver and Madi, I feel like it applies to him and Thomas as well. They’re my strongest OTP ever because they really balance each other and keep each other grounded. I tried to show that balance in the picture. James is filled with fire and rage but Thomas helps him to keep cool. On the other hand, Thomas is a dreamer and James helps him to keep things realistic.
They are both incredibly driven and both strive for a better world, but
they each have their own ways to achieve it. But somehow, they always
seem to find a happy medium. I think that makes them incredibly strong
as a couple.
‘Thomas, he sees only the principle. The right. It’s inspiring. It can be intoxicating. It’s why I love him. But you, you see the world as it is. You see it’s truths and how to navigate them, how to bend them to your will. It’s why I love you. Men like Thomas need men like you to protect them from the world, and that is what I’m asking you to do.’ - Miranda
I guess how depends on why you’re going. Either way though go at your own speed. If you stress yourself out you’re most likely gonna fail. Can cut things out slowly or drop everything at once. Remember why you want to go vegan.
Some cosmetics and misc links (not everything from some of these companies/sites are vegan do some research/write-emails)-(x)(x)(x)(x)(x)(x)(x)(x)(x)
You’ll realize how ignorant people are, like not always in a whats that mean way in a holy shit wow people suck way. But..a lot of the time it rubs off on other people and sometimes the people around you may question their lifestyle choices and go vegan or vegetarian too, or just eat a lot less meat. When I went vegetarian then vegan my girlfriend went with me and a friend eventually. No one buys dairy milk in my house now and my dad and niece use my vegan butter/milk and faux meats sometimes (mostly because cheaper than meat). It spreads. Inform people. Ignore rudeness but educate. Remember that most of society is still brainwashed. We do not need animal products.
Veganism is not just about animals. These industries are hurting the planet, human health and keeping the hungry hungrier. Remember what’s important and it’s easy and rewarding.
In honor of BFRB Awareness Week last week, I’m going to
start posting short lists of some of my favorite trich-related products in
hopes that they help other people with trichotillomania (future lists will also
include dermatillomania) manage their pulling, heal raw skin, or regrow hair.
For today, I’m just gonna start out with three products that
have helped me the most in the past few weeks.
1. Vaseline, $1.47 at Target, 5★
Seems simple, I know. Especially for my first product. But
seriously. If you have trich and you don’t use Vaseline you really should. I
like to put it on my eyelashes in the evening. Not only does it make my lashes
slippery and harder to pull but it also conditions the hairs and makes helps
them grow back longer and thicker. However, if you do use it, make sure that
you wash your hands before you apply. You can also use a clean mascara wand,
but I find it easier to spread the Vaseline on my lashes with my fingers.
2. Rimmel Lash Accelerator Serum, $8.99 at Walgreens, 4.5 ★
I can’t give a completely accurate review of this product,
because I’ve only used it about a week now. I’ll have to do another one once
I’ve been using it for at least a month. But I really like it so far, so I
think it’s worth mentioning. I think it’s a good, affordable alternative to Vaseline
if you’re looking for something to grow back lashes. I still put it on the
parts of my lids with no lashes though, in hopes that it’ll also help start
regrowth. I also like to use it for my eyebrows, because I’ve found that
Vaseline sometimes makes me break out if I put it on skin. My only issue with
this product is that it dries kind of crunchy. So when I use it, I try to put
it on immediately before I go to sleep. Otherwise the crunchiness bothers me
and makes me pick at my eyelashes more. Also, the brush tip makes application a little messy. When I’m applying it to my eyelashes, I usually end up brushing the side of my nose.
3. Silly Putty, $1.00 at Dollar
Tree, 4.5 ★
Again, another simple product. I know. I’ll probably try to
branch out into the ones that you guys might not know about. But for now I
wanted to highlight some products that have helped me a lot recently. I have a
desk job and when I first started I was pulling A LOT. Partly from stress and
partly from being on the computer all day. I went to my local Dollar Tree and
got two of these little eggs, and I can’t begin to tell you how much they’ve
helped. Silly Putty is very pliable, so I can break it, bend it, mold it,
sculpt it, whatever I want. It’s easy to fiddle with it in one hand while I’m
scrolling with the other. Plus, it’s super cheap. I haven’t pulled at work for
the last two weeks because of this stuff. It does, however, make my hands a
little dry by the end of the day. But that’s probably because I work 10 hour
days and I’m playing with it the whole time.
I hope these products are helpful for you
guys! If you have any suggestions for products I should check out, let me know!
I’ll do another review post sometime soon with some more of my favorite products.
