His wife costs tax payers millions by refusing to move into the White House. The Secret Service is looking into leasing space in Trump Tower…. Think about that. We have to pay for Trump’s security to buy space in Trump’s building because his wife refuses to move.

He costs the taxpayers millions with each trip to Mar-a-Lago, his resort, where people pay lots of money to stay where he stays and take pictures with Trump’s security detail who carries the nuclear codes. It also costs the city’s police department thousands in overtime pay.

All this profiting off the office might only make me pissed off, and not nauseous with rage, if he wasn’t such a damned hypocrite on top of it all.

it’s the year 2077 & you’re at a nightclub in tokyo with your best friend, you’re both on the run from a group of rebels but you feel safe in this little neon corner of nowhere so when a robot waiter offers you a strawberry daiquiri you accept it

you’re a tourist on mars & you’re trying to contact home but the signal is really crappy so you just end up buying yourself an icecream sundae & waiting in this strange alien queue to buy an interstellar sim card

you’re in a small virginian town that was wiped off the map several years ago housesitting for a mysterious neighbor when you find a secret passageway in their library, you have no idea where it leads but you’re curious to take a look 

you’re in victorian england & you’re walking down a path adorned with the warm aureate glow of gaslights & it’s snowing softly & you have your hands buried deep in your coat pockets while somewhere in the distance, someone announces that the queen is dead

you meet god at a gas station at 3.03 am & he asks you if you want to go for a motorcycle ride with him & when you say yes he warns you that he’s about to introduce you to things you can never unknow 

you’re in love with a ghost who shows up in all your household mirrors & keeps turning off the kitchen light but one night you realize that you’re the one that’s been doing all the haunting 

it’s a rehab centre for celestial beings, where angels with dying halos flitter past & talk to you of stars, you love working this job, learning about the woes of a dozen flighty beings, & they endow you with their strength & light in return

you’re stuck in a time loop inside of a 80′s horror flick and your entire world feels like it’s glitching around you nothing is real except for your strange lover with eyes like moonlight calling you to come back to bed 

you’re at an island at midnight all by yourself, the night sky is so clear the sea reflects the star-matted sky, a salty breeze lifts your hair, you breathe in deep & dream of someone beautiful coming to your rescue

The Library didn’t only contain magical books, the ones which are chained to their shelves and are very dangerous. It also contained perfectly ordinary books, printed on commonplace paper in mundane ink. It would be a mistake to think that they weren’t also dangerous, just because reading them didn’t make fireworks go off in the sky. Reading them sometimes did the more dangerous trick of making fireworks go off in the privacy of the reader’s brain.

Sensory Heaven™

I really wanna start a business that’s basically a stim toy library. You pay a small fee for a membership ( because how else would it make enough money to stay in business?) and it allows you to test out different stim toys! You can check them out like you would a library book, and if you like the toy enough, you can purchase it! If not, just return it! Not only that, but the environment would be by autistics, for autistics. Different rooms for different sensory needs: a room with dim lights, a room with some scented candles burning, a room with soft instrumental music playing, and each room would also have books (which could also be checked out or bought)! The books and stim toys could be donated by people, that way the prices could be super low and affordable! And on top of all that, it could have a café that sells autism/ neurodivergent pride themed goodies (cookies with rainbow infinity frosting, cupcakes with red frosting, coffee/tea [ because warm drinks could add to the cozy aesthetic])! There could also be informational pamphlets that could properly educate people about autism! There would be little nooks for reading, stimming, or just chilling out, complete with fun sensory chairs like fluffy beanbags and video rockers! The overall environment would be calm, peaceful, and accepting! You want to sit and rock? Go for it! That’s 100% normal here! The name of the library would be something like Sensory Heaven™, and omg I’m stimming excitedly just thinking about it! It’s too late to change my major this semester, but !!! I might change my major next semester to business so I can learn how to go about opening up this library!
