Can one person truly believe in both of these?

“Even though the world goes on for eons and eons, you are only here for a fraction of a fraction of a second. Most of your time is spent being dead or not yet born. But while alive, you wait in vain, wasting years, for a phone call or a letter or a look from someone or something to make it all right. And it never comes or it seems to but it doesn’t really. And so you spend your time in vague regret or vaguer hope that something good will come along. Something to make you feel connected, something to make you feel whole, something to make you feel loved. And the truth is I feel so angry, and the truth is I feel so fucking sad, and the truth is I’ve felt so fucking hurt for so fucking long and for just as long I’ve been pretending I’m OK, just to get along, just for, I don’t know why, maybe because no one wants to hear about my misery, because they have their own. Well, fuck everybody. Amen.”

I like to think they’re in a happy polyamorous relationship with each other.

Spark: sends the other two memes all the time, makes the best hot chocolate, starts fights all the time, must be protected at all costs

Candela: kills the spiders, secretly loves bad romance movies, finishes the fights Spark starts, excellent cook

Blanche: precious nonbinary, takes care of the others when they’re drunk, bookworm, will stay up all night talking about philosphy

A (slightly late) results day post from a 21 year old dyspraxic.

Three years ago, I left college with 3 Ds on my a levels (psychology, sociology, and philosphy, just ftr) and without having even attempted to apply to university, because the idea of writing a personal statement terrified me so much that I instead spent the classes dedicated to it watching yotube videos of cats with headphones in.

Yesterday, I got confirmation that I’d been accepted onto my first choice, after spending the past year of my life on an Access to HE course.

So, to any ND people reading this who didn’t get the results they wanted yesterday, or who are maybe still in school or college and scared of failing- sometimes the reason you don’t get good grades isn’t because you aren’t good at the subject. Sometimes it’s because the education system is built for people who are not you and who do not have your neurology, and you need to figure out for yourself how you learn because the people teaching you don’t know, and how to advocate for yourself and ask for the accomadations you need even though you’ve never had them before and aren’t sure what would help.

I’m not going to say that balancing student-ing with my famously terrible memory and organization skills and executive function (or rather, lack thereof, on all three counts) is easy, because it isn’t. But the problem isn’t you and you shouldn’t give up. That sounds cheesy as hell. Okay.

Maria, ma seule et unique illusion


Elle n'est pas toujours joignable
Voir presque pas du tout
Mais elle reste toujours aimable
Et te suit presque partout

Tu la voies toujours fumer
Sur un banc, toute déprimée
Bien qu'elle cache toute sa tristesse
Sous un petit air de tendresse

Que t'aperçois dans son regard
Parfois, tôt ou tard
Elle se fait bien remarquer
Par sa forme toute déchaînée

Une femme fatale? Peut être
Son caractère faut bien connaître
Adorable dans son genre
Elle est sublime parmi les autres

C'est peut être qu'une illusion
Une favorable succession
Des épisodes passés ensemble
Un peu soulés, comme il me semble?

Comme dira ma chère Maria,
Je ne suis pas un ananas
Mais juste une pomme du tiers monde
Ramenée ici par désespoir
Dans un pays de l'ancien monde
Ou je suis devenue une poire…

The World Hasn’t Changed

*sigh*

  I don’t normally post my beliefs online, but after seeing some people posts, I figured I might be able to help…

  To start off and give some perspective, I’m probably not your average tumblr user. I’m not an artist, and I’m not saying that because I’m insecure in my artistic skills. I’m a programmer, its what I’m good at and what I enjoy. Coders in general are much less emotional than artists, so I figure a potentially more logical view might shed new light on the subject.

  What I’m going to talk about is human nature. I’ve seen lots of posts talking about how people are shocked about how rude and awful people can be. Sometimes its homophobics, sexists, anon haters, it doesn’t really matter. It causes people to be cynical towards others who don’t specifically prove themselves to share your beliefs. “How can I trust someone if I don’t know they aren’t going to judge me unfairly”. The short answer is you can’t know they won’t be jerks. There are people everywhere who will be jerks, but there are also the good people. The ones who love everything you do, and love to spend time with and talk to you. And if you don’t have people like that, then I would encourage you to find some. If your unsure if someone would want to talk to you, then try anyway. I guarantee that there is someone that you would get along great with out there. Find people like that and surround yourself with them. If people are being rude, ignore them and get back to being with the people you enjoy. 

  There have always been people that have different beliefs and will cause trouble because of it. whether its people disagreeing on slaves being right, If your ship makes you a bad person, or if that guy over there is taking all the good farm land, hardly anything has changed since the dawn of time. The issues change, the way we deal with those issues change, but there has always been problems, and as long as two human beings are allowed to coexist, there will always be problems.

  I think some people still somewhat believe that people are inherently good, everything is great except for these few problems that could be listed on a paper. Saying it out loud the implications are ridiculous. Even if you could simplify every problem to be a single name like ISIS, there still wouldn’t be a big enough paper to hold it. However its not even that simple. Every individual case of rape or abuse is its own issue. Each is caused for its own unique reasons, and each needs to be solved differently. In this way of thinking the phrases like ‘The world is filled with hatred’ make a lot of sense, and are accurate.. But this is where the mistake is. Yes the world is filled with hatred, but it is also filled with love and hope, the bad things just tend to stick out more. 

  How many times has someone asked a genuine question to learn more about your blog/oc/ship whatever, compared to the number of people who have just came in to be a jerk. Ya what they asked is already in your FAQ, but they are interested in something you made! Another human being says that your stuff is more important to them than spending their time dreaming up their own perfect story. Think about how amazing that is. Yes they weren’t observant enough to go to the FAQ, but even then: How many people got it right and looked to the right place?

  If you look for the worlds mistakes, you won’t have any trouble finding them. But if you look for what the world got right, you won’t be disappointed either. The world is both a Evil AND Good place, and will show you what ever you look for. 

Now please. Look away for your screen for a second and think about his if you’ve ever been bothered by this kind of thing. Then get back to what ever you were doing. Go watch some cat memes, or get back to drawing that comic. But next time you feel the world at your throat, please look for the silver lining. It won’t make it a better place, but it will make your day and possibly the days of other around you better.  

Sometimes we have to take a risk just to know, to know the possible outcome. I hate to not know, I despise the unknown so I live to understand. Regardless, of how many heartbreaks and tears I have inflicted upon myself, I am grateful I have not wondered what if?

Couldn’t screenshot this because it was too long, and while the answer is a bit dodgy, it does confirm a standard business philosphy - users who provide monetary support will naturally be rewarded more. :/

i LOVE religious philosphy but i feel like so much of it gets caught up in minutiae (esp. with christrianity) and like. idk. i got them holy feels and so i guess i might describe myself as “non-denominational but weirdly religious” but also i am moslty quiet about it and my religious feelings dont have any laws in them so theres no real NEED to like, prosyletize
