you're always saying you have no money but now you're buying a house???????

Yeah so you know who does have money? My parents. They got sick of me waiting around for them to die and inherit their money before I could move out of their house so they’re giving me the deposit so I can get a mortgage now.

It’s the old ‘bank of mum and dad’ phenomenon. It’s not fair at all, but I’m one of those lucky people who has that option, and that’s pretty much the only way most people of my generation get on the property ladder at all.

Personally I don’t have much money, and it’s gonna be pretty much beans-out-of-a-can for me from now on because all my wages are gonna go towards paying the mortgage and bills. But my parents helping me out like this means that I can start living independently from now on so I am very very grateful.

(I did offer to pay them back, but my mum said: ‘Alice, frankly by the time you finish paying us back we’ll be dead anyway and you get the money either way, so you don’t need to bother’)

Hey, who has two thumbs and is currently using said thumbs to mess with the Tangle fidget toy they just bought?

A few days over the horizon just waiting for us.

…and you tried to change didn’t you?
closed your mouth more
tried to be softer
less volatile, less awake
but even when sleeping you could feel
him travelling away from you in his dreams
so what did you want to do love
split his head open?
you can’t make homes out of human beings
someone should have already told you that
and if he wants to leave
then let him leave
you are terrifying
and strange and beautiful
something not everyone knows how to love.

URGENT: Cat Foster Needed

Since y’all have been the most incredible people in regards to helping me with my cat’s medical problems earlier this year, I’m hoping someone will help me with this in the next week–

I am in between places to live at the moment, and while my brother and sister-in-law have been wonderful humans in terms of looking after Henry for the past month, their own cat has not been getting along with Henry and so, since I can’t blame them, they want Henry moved out of their place by June 10th.

Which puts me in a pickle, since Henry can’t come with me where I currently live due to allergies.

So. If you live near Chicago/anywhere in the Midwest and are willing to foster a cat for a few weeks until I move to a place where I can have Henry with me, PLEASE let me know. I’m literally willing to drive Henry to wherever he’ll be looked after and, if you know anything about me, you know that I love Henry infinitely more than I love any human, so. 

Please let me know, and please reblog this to spread the word.

This cat is the love and light of my life, and I sincerely need help to make sure he’s looked after.

Please let me know.
