We must learn to reawaken and keep ourselves awake, not by mechanical aid, but by an infinite expectation of the dawn.Henry David Thoreau (via itsquoted)
this is doing things to me
Hey kids, as we approach Halloween I just wanted you guys to be careful and say DON’T FUCK WITH SPIRITS. Don’t mess with Ouija Boards, don’t talk to no dead people, don’t fuck with demons, don’t summon shit, don’t dick around in abandoned buildings. If you are considering a thing, just think, “would a white person in a horror movie do this thing?” If the answer is yes, then don’t do the thing.
This has been a PSA
Haha this is pretty much how I feel every Halloween
Failure is nature’s plan to prepare you for great responsibilities.Napolean Hill. (via quotedojo)
This is quite relevant now.
The difficulty in life is the choice.George Moore. (via quotedojo)
when this is over, no matter the outcome, i’m going into the woods to cry until i become a stronger person.
I am FUH-REAKING out. I know I need to find a way to stay calm and positive and believe in myself, blah blah blah, but in six days I am taking the math ORELA for the third and final time. I have banked a lot on this day and on this test. Though I’m sure I need to stop thinking of it this way, it is quite difficult. But! If I fail again I will go to welding school. Be a welder, make sculptures and jewelry and be involved in the fashion industry somehow, via involved sculptures, fashion journalism, whatever.
Let’s just say that I’d love to do that, but I’d love to be a teacher and face my fears and limitations finally. My math tutor told me, “If you argue for your limitations, you get to keep them.”
I’m not arguing anymore. Math is a limitation, but it does NOT have to keep me from being a music teacher. I can do fractions. I can solve equations, I can recognize graphs and geometry and I CAN I CAN I CAN I CAN I CAN DO THIS.
pep talk over.
Anger towards privileged groups is a result of years of oppression and hatred.
Anger towards minorities is supported by years of oppression and hatred.
That’s why hatred towards privileged groups is not the same as hatred towards minorities
According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, women who LEAVE their abusive partners are at a 75% greater risk of being killed than those who stay.
Well that’s just lovely.
Please stop asking why people stay, this is why.
