@wangpuppo - of course, because chatting with her has become a daily ritual for me. we talk damn near everyday and it feels like it’s been forever in the best way possible because she’s one of my closest friends and and and ily, you gremlin. you’re the bokjoo to my joon hyung and the yugyeom to my jinyoung <3

on top of her, i love out group chat with @minsugadotcom on kkt because me and jen are constantly suffering from this evil demon we call our maknae. hehe

@chocochims - getting to talk to her again is so nice because we can complain about how much we love the maknaes of bts. especially the pain they cause us.

Not gonna call a person out but someone commented on a thing a moment ago and said “it’s hard to be kind these days.” This is for you, anonymously, so you may still be anonymous if you’d like.

I’m torn between agreeing and not. I’m torn between life is hard and everything is hard and it sucks, and between no, it’s really not.

So let’s just look at it this way, kindness is a choice. It is a daily, hourly, choice. It is your decision to speak up or stay quiet. It is your decision to be vocal with your praise and silent with your criticism. It is your decision to be vocal with your justice and silent with your hate.

It’s a decision you make every moment of your life. Little things are kind. Holding doors, smiling. Taking your anger to someone else who will listen instead of dumping it back on the person who gave it to you. Smiling and nodding as someone rambles on with an idea you don’t even agree with, because it’s harmless fantasy. Keeping private chats private, giving people the benefit of the doubt, showing empathy. Everyone has a complex life as colorful as yours and 90% of the time they are not out to inconvenience you, but trying their best to take care of themselves.

Our world is full of hive minds and influences, and so many people are telling us today sucks and the world is hard. You can still allow yourself to be happy and kind despite that.

Sometimes, I don’t believe I am a kind person. Often I don’t believe there are any kind people. Only kind decisions.

Kindred is Octavia E. Butler’s most popular novel. It was published in 1979, and the seed for it was planted at Pasadena City College, where Butler was a student.

This fall, over 2,500 incoming Pasadena City College students will read Butler’s novel as part of their “One Book, One College” initiative. What is it about Kindred - a novel that’s more fantasy than science fiction - that makes it so popular?

Listen in as we talk with John Jennings, illustrator of the forthcoming graphic novel adaptation of Kindred, and Dr. Christopher West, one of the people responsible for Kindred’s resurgence on PCC’s campus.

Most motorcycle clubs don’t allow women to join, so what did Jen Baquial from New York do? She created her own motorcycle club for women called The Sirens Women’s Motorcycle Club of New York City. If that alone isn’t badass, the fact that this nonprofit organisation collects and pasteurises breast milk to deliver to newborn babies and mothers in New York hospitals, certainly is. In addition to this kind gesture, they also raise money for the New York Milk Bank.

Summary: On a night out with your friends, you accidentally text the wrong number for advice. The guy on the other end of the phone is abrupt, harsh and kind of an ass - but he also happens to be right. Which explains why you keep texting him. Right?
