yes all the quotes makes sense

Of course, we all inevitably work too hard, then we get burned out and have to spend the whole weekend in our pajamas, eating cereal straight out of the box and staring at the TV in a mild coma (which is the opposite of working, yes, but not exactly the same thing as pleasure).

There should be a term used for the ship that should sail but don’t: THE ZUTARA SCALE.

For those ships that make you stare blankly at the screen or at the pages, because you don’t understand how all the development could have lead to anything else but them.

  • Draco: [to his therapist] What was the point? All those hours and all that money? What's the point? The world is a horrible place. Young people die of diseases and disaster. It makes absolutely no sense to try to be happy in a world that's such a horrible place.
  • Therapist: [to Draco] Yes.
  • Draco: What?
  • Therapist: Yes, horrible things do happen. Happiness in the face of all of that... that's not the goal. Feeling the horrible and knowing that you're not gonna die from those feelings, that's goal. And you're not done. You've made progress because you're feeling and you're telling me about it. Six months ago, it would've been just you and a bottle of Ogdens Finest. Remember, My door is always open.

Not only did Shailene Woodley fall for a stupid health trend, she fell for two. In a 2014 article for Into The Gloss magazine, Woodley, fancying herself an earthy-crunchy health guru, indicated she would totally open up elixir bars and use all-natural everything to heal toothaches, sinus problems, and probably Ebola if she weren’t so busy being awesome at acting. One of her preferred cure-alls? Eating clay.

She also has a solution for when all that scrumdiddlyumptious clay causes dry mouth: gargling with coconut and sesame oil. Yes, the same crap we use to fry eggplant, Woodley uses as a way to save money on her Listerine bill. And her “THE SECRET IS” explanation makes almost as much sense as why people still mess with Sasquatch: Apparently, oil whitens teeth, “because the plaque on your teeth is not water-soluble; it’s fat-soluble. So the lipids have to dissolve in fats, which is why oil works in your mouth.” But the only legitimate part of that quote is that the proofreader spelled it right.

5 Celebrities Way More Disgusting Than You

SRKajol + Makings of / Bloopers

Kajol: "Shah Rukh Khan and I share a close friendship that translates onto the screen. We have such fun working together. He has a great sense of humour.“
[…]
“I would love to do all my films with him!”

Shah Rukh: “We have a lot of fun with each other on and off the sets. I never really imagined that working with her could be so much fun!”
[…]
“If Kajol will say ‘YES’, I’ll love to have her in every film of me.”

Being hurt by something hurtful is rational. In fact, I’d argue it’s a smart evolutionary move, developed to protect people from hurtful things. Not just in the physical sense — okay, let’s not eat that again — but in the emotional one, too, because emotions clearly influence overall health, wellbeing, and happiness. The brain is doing a smart and good thing by telling me ‘hey, that wasn’t fun, let’s make a point of not being around that person in the future, because that person is clearly a jerk.’

Has that person made me feel inferior? Yes. Did I consent to it? No. I did not. And this is perhaps the thing that makes me angriest of all about this quote, the idea that people who are harmed by cruelty are just too passive, are just asking for it, should just be stronger and they’ll get over it. I don’t want to live in a world where people should be strong and shut up. I want to live in a world where people actually care about each other and work to protect and support each other given that right now, this is a place where passing few things come with kindness or love.

On Inferiority and Consent | this ain’t livin’

Yup. People assume that my being hurt or taking offense at things is somehow evidence that I have “thin skin” and can’t possibly survive in this world and isn’t evolutionarily adapted to Real Life and need their assistance in making me Rational.

Actually, the fact that I get hurt when people try to hurt me is probably the reason I’ve built up such an amazing social network. Because I will NOT TAKE YOUR SHIT.

“Love is always stronger than hate” - Chris Singleton

Okay, so I rarely if ever post any art related to social events, but this time I felt that I had to.

Charleston has caused so many people so much pain. It’s only one of the many brutal events that have been all over the news lately, all stemming from hate and racial tension. It breaks my heart, and makes me so sad, that as a human species we can’t seem to just love and embrace one another. There’s no basis for the hate, there’s no sense to it at all. 

Chris Singleton, the son of one of the victims of Charleston, gave this quote when speaking about his mother, and it really just inspired me. The strength being shown by him, and Charleston, and the entire community lobbying for change right now has me awestruck.

This involves all of us, and yes, love is always stronger than hate. No matter what color you are, what you wear, what gender you express, who you love, what language you speak, where you live, anything, we are all of the same species. And now more than ever we need to band together and make a change. 

I just hope this piece reminds everyone to love one another, and be kind. It’s so important right now.

Why is Dark Swan protecting Killian?

And she feels that way and we’re going to start to see that some a lot of her selfishness and a lot of the things that she does she’s actually doing because of her love for Hook. It’s not going to all start to line up and make sense right away. (x)   

I read this quote and I immediately thought there must be a connection between Dark Swan protecting Hook and the secret Emma’s supposedly keeping that was teased about before the season premiere. 

Yes, that secret could be what exactly the Nevengers did that caused Emma to go full dark, but might it also have something to do with Killian that’s connected to what JMO teased in the interview? The shared heart theory has been tossed around a lot. Or maybe they did get married in Camelot. Either of these would give Emma reason to protect Killian. And how heartbreaking would it be for Emma to live with the knowledge that she’s married or sharing a heart with Killian, but for him not to remember it? We all know A&E love their angst and that storyline would certainly provide it. 

I’m not necessarily committed to a marriage or shared heart theory, but I think it’s increasingly likely that something significant happened between Emma and Killian in Camelot–something that would compel Emma, despite being consumed by darkness–to feel that she has to protect Killian. What that is, I’m not entirely sure. But it has to be something MAJOR.
