I firmly believe in small gestures: pay for their coffee, hold the door for strangers, over tip, smile or try to be kind even when you don’t feel like it, pay compliments, chase the kid’s runaway ball down the sidewalk and throw it back to him, try to be larger than you are— particularly when it’s difficult. People do notice, people appreciate. I appreciate it when it’s done to (for) me. Small gestures can be an effort, or actually go against our grain (“I’m not a big one for paying compliments…”), but the irony is that almost every time you make them, you feel better about yourself. For a moment life suddenly feels lighter, a bit more Gene Kelly dancing in the rain. —Jonathan Carroll  (via theremina)


one of the worst things about becoming educated on social issues is when people are like ‘you used to have a sense of humor’

no i used to have internalized prejudices which i’ve worked really hard to overcome and i realize now that your jokes are shitty

I already know that you are going to tell me that to not be sad, But I have a problem and I was hoping you or any other person would understand, I'm a 36 B and I have stretch marks on my breasts. I have tried cocoa butter and bio oil but it's just sad because they never fade and I'm just sad. Like it really really sucks having boobs with stretch marks. I feel really weird going to the beach or pool. NONE OF MY FRIENDS UNDERSTAND Cus they don't have stretch marks at all ;( I'm just sad right now.

So many boobies, so little time.

Anon one: I totally get where you’re coming from — a majority of women have stretch marks on their breasts (especially women with large boobs or women who’ve been pregnant). The thing is that a. (you saw this one coming but I’m going to say it anyway) stretch marks are totally normal and fine and don’t disqualify you from being a sexy motherfucker and b. your stretch marks will fade. Even if you didn’t apply all of the scar-healing oils, time would eventually cause your stretch marks to fade. They wouldn’t disappear completely, but they’d definitely become lighter, so my advice there is just to keep up with your oil treatment and have some patience and I guarantee your stretch marks will become lighter. In the meantime, spend time with your boobs and learn to appreciate your stretch marks for what they are: signs of your growth and healthy body.

Anon two: SMALL BOOBS DON’T MAKE YOU UNFEMININE WHAT THE HELL IS EVERYONE TELLING YOU. You can be feminine as fuck no matter what size of boob you have — you can be the butchest butch with double D’s and a femmy princess with a completely flat chest. The size of your boobs doesn’t determine whether or not you’re a woman. Whether or not you even have boobs doesn’t determine whether or not you’re a woman. So you know what? Throw all that negativity people are pointing towards your chest out the window and wear whatever the fuck you want and embrace your femininity. And the next time someone says “wow, you have a really small chest,” look them right in the eyes and say “Cut it out. The size of my chest isn’t important — it’s what’s underneath that counts.”

Anon three: It is absolutely okay to love your boobs! Love ‘em big, love ‘em small, love ‘em whatever! If people are surprised by how much you enjoy your small chest, fuck ‘em. Never question whether it’s okay to love your body.

.Every time we (my freind)are suppose hang out, he cancels.I invited him to my birthday party I’m having and this is the first birthday party I’m having since I was in 6th grade because every time I had one no one would come. And he asked for the date so he could take the day off of work. But I was talking to him today and he asked for the date again so I gave it to him. But he said “Oh dear. I have a retreat that day" He was told about it wednesday. I invited him weeks ago. I feel hopeless now.

Tell him how you feel!

When a friend does something that really pisses you off or makes you sad, the number one thing you should do is say “Hey, you did this thing and it made me feel mad/sad/upset/annoyed” then ask if they can a. explain their actions or b. promise to try not to do it again.

If they freak the fuck out or get super offended, drop that like it’s hot and find some better friends.



Back home, the girls are not soft —
they pit peaches with their teeth,
drink sadness like they’re starving.

They always dance alone,
listen to songs with lyrics
about strawberry wine.

They blossom like beer bottles,
wear october on their shins,
split open, screaming —

a foreign rose
just aching
for a fight.
