school spending

*young republican voice* i don’t see why my rich, rich, rich rich rich, rich rich rich rich, so fucking rich, father should have to pay for poorer boys school lunches. he could spend that money on a racism machine

Spend money. Change your hairstyle. Sell your old clothes and pursue your new style with the money you get from it. Be strong. Be patient. Get drunk if you want to, but not every weekend. Buy a chocolate bar every week when your favourite tv show is on. Take hot baths. Wake up early. Start jogging. Write. Find a friend who will listen to you and don’t stop until you find it. Study. Read. Make your Instagram cool. Write some more. Get that damn piercing. Buy bath bubbles and bath more. Adore your body. Shave, for yourself. Book flights for next spring. Write this day down, write it all down. Cry. Finally feel some homesickness. Learn to be in silence. Learn to stand being alone. Drink lots of coffee. Get ready for christmas. Feel smart at school. Spend a weekend alone. Take lots of selfies. Eat chocolate while watching reality tv-shows. Meditate. Stretch. Learn ballet. Buy overpriced coffee. Learn to be with yourself

  • Hufflepuff: Have you started studying for next weeks exams?
  • Ravenclaw: Study?
  • Hufflepuff: Yeah, study. Like review the class material before you are tested on it.
  • Ravenclaw: I don't do this "study" that you speak of.
  • Hufflepuff: Then how do you get good grades?
  • Ravenclaw: ...
  • Ravenclaw: I don't...

I think one of my favorite parts of Bob’s Burgers is not only do Bob and Linda put up with their kids (and their antics) they actually genuinely like spending time with them

like they genuinely like them as people

they don’t always fully understand them, and they ‘click’ in some ways with one of them in ways they don’t with others, but they love them and they like them

Bob plays the straight man to Critter’s crazy idea to sell his bike to a banker and Bob says it was a good day because he spent it with his kids, Linda wants to hang out with Tina at the hotel, Bob wants to do something special for his birthday with his son, Linda sneaks Louise out of school to spend time with her because she thinks Louise is a good person

it’s just well done and shows that in the end, the reason we root for this family over seven seasons is because they are a family

My friend learned the hard way to not answer the door to late night trick-or-treaters

by reddit user manen_lyset

We all have that one friend who’s not into the holidays. You know the one: won’t decorate, won’t dress up, won’t wish you a happy -whatever day it is-, and, though he’ll reluctantly agree to come to your themed party, he’ll stay in the back and scowl the whole time. In most cases, the hate is directed at just one holiday, whether it be Valentines, Christmas, Easter, or, hell, even arbor day. My friend Patrick? He hated Halloween with every fiber of his being.

  • Hufflepuff: How's your summer going? Have you read a lot of books?
  • Ravenclaw: No. Most days I plan to start a book and I instead spend hours analyzing the story of the last book I read and forget to start the next one.
  • Hufflepuff: Okay... well have you done anything else with your time?
  • Ravenclaw: No. Well, I did go outside once, but that was a mistake...

the Tired One and the Loud One

(((i havent watched voltron yet because i have trouble thinking about anything thats not osomatsu san sorry)))

I’m not a summer person, I don’t like this heavy and dry air, it feels like someone’s taking away my breath. But what I’m excited for is the darker side of the summer. Warm but windy nights, sweet smell of blooming jasmin, picking fresh herbs in the morning, bare feet on a wet grass and brewing tea. I love this feeling of the eternity, late at night looking at a bonfire with flames dancing in my eyes. I’m not a summer person, but I adore the dark side of it.

I’ll go to bed early.
