I had a dream the other night that they made a Night Vale movie and that Cecil was introduced with a very dramatic shot of him walking down the station hallway until it pans down and you see he’s wearing light-up sketchers

my favorite thing in stories is when the antagonist doesn’t die, but instead they realize they were being kind of a stupid dick (maybe because the protagonist saved them or something) and then they have to kind of awkwardly tag along with the heroes in order to make up for their mistakes and gradually become slightly less evil

I want to write and take classes and sports classes and I need to learn to drive and I want to go to Mexico at Christmas and spend time with my friends and make new ones and read everything and run really hard and eat a lot of food from my garden etcetc and that is sometimes depressing or stressful to me because THERE ISN’T ENOUGH TIME but now it strikes me as really cool because there’s so much to do and we are alive.

honestly I could care less if the mona lisa got destroyed or stolen.  just honestly do not care about it at all.  not a big deal in my life right now

The phrase is actually “I couldn’t care less”

I couldnt care less about what you just added to my mona lisa post

Is that the phrase or is it a common weird linguistic thing that people do? Because my dad would always say “I couldn’t care less” and as a kid it eventually started to confuse me when I realized it didn’t make logical sense but that is what he said is this a common thing and I wonder whyyy  ?

grangrdangr said: what do you say to yourself in times when you don't feel that confident about yourself? I am having one of those phase, and can't seem to take a step back...

hermionejg:

Sorry, grangrdangr. I am also in one of those phases and desperately trying to tell it to fuck off.

So firstly, I try to identify what exactly it is I feel rubbish about. It tends to be more specific than just, I don’t feel confident today. This isn’t fun but it helps me move away from the I DON’T FEEL CONFIDENT BECAUSE I AM HORRIBLE EVERYTHING IS AWFUL pov towards SOME THINGS ARE AWFUL. e.g.: I feel incompetent, I feel ugly, I feel lonely, I feel like people hate me/I’ve upset them/I’ve disappointed them.

Secondly, (if possible) identify how those things are operating. I tend to get stuck in cycles of these sorts of thoughts, but there are times when it’s just one nagging thing in the background, or if I do a particular task/action/inaction then I get sucked into it. Sometimes I just have to let it run its course. (I’m sure there’s a better way and this presupposes the awareness that it’s a temporary thing, but yeah.)

Thirdly, I follow these little routines:

1. I moisturise and hydrate. Honestly, I don’t know what it is about moisturising and hydrating but they make me feel so much more at peace. Also, putting on freshly laundered clothes, sleeping in fresh sheets, etc. These actions pull me out of the lethargic aspect of feeling shit.

2. I go for a walk or a run. It doesn’t have to be a long one, 15 minutes will do. On rainy days like today it’s not always possible, or if you feel particularly shit at 2am it’s not always possible, but fresh air helps.

3. I tell myself (and here you have the right to laugh at me if you wish) that smart people who love me are going to have my back. Yes, that’s a line from TWW but it has been enormously helpful in my development. It means you don’t have to pinpoint exactly who loves you but it’s a general assertion of some kind of confidence in how things will turn out, not because of your personal capability but because of who you are. Even if you don’t believe it at first, you get there, and suddenly this weird little TV mantra has all sorts of power.

4. I do my very very best to be kind to myself. It’s okay to not feel confident but it’s not necessarily a permanent thing. Give yourself time to get back to that place. Recognise your progress. Be kind to yourself.

"We don’t like pictures like this. It is not good to deduce an entire country to the image of a person reaching out for food. It is not good for people to see us like this, and it is not good for us to see ourselves like this. This gives us no dignity. We don’t want to be shown as a country of people waiting for someone to bring us food. Congo has an incredible amount of farmland. An incredible amount of resources. Yes, we have a lot of problems. But food is not what we are reaching for. We need investment. We need the means to develop ourselves."

you wouldn’t think that whether a farm participating in a wic/snap-approved farmer’s market needs to renew their certification every year or few years is top-secret info but apparently so

If you use YouTube, you need to know this.
You’ve heard all these rumblings about Net Neutrality over the past several months. Let’s get real: this is about controlling online video. It is estimated that by 2017, video content will account for 80-90% of all global Internet traffic.
This isn’t just about not being able to binge-watch a series on Netflix. It’s about the future of online video as we know it.
Whether your YouTube channel is home to daily vlogs, short films, or just that one video from when the cinnamon challenge seemed like a good idea, you’re a video creator. Your content and comments help shape this community. Let’s keep it that way.
Net Neutrality means that your YouTube videos reach people at the same speed as clips from last night’s episode of the Tonight Show. It means a level playing field for video creators looking to reach an audience. But new Net Neutrality rules could mess that up.
Here’s the deal: Telecommunications companies already charge us to access the Internet through our homes and our phones. New FCC rules could allow them to also charge content providers (like YouTube, Netflix, and even PBS) for access to our eyeballs. It could create a fast lane for Jimmy Fallon’s clips, and slow lane for your YouTube videos.
It is really important that the FCC understands that online video creators care about Net Neutrality. Even if you’ve only ever uploaded ONE VIDEO, you are a creator and you have a voice.
If you can, please add your channel to our petition. We’ll deliver this to the FCC in September and demonstrate that the online video community cares about this issue. 
Sign the petition, then spread the word.

I definitely just washed my feet in the sink with dr. bronners so I wouldn’t feel too gross to get in bed cool good night

10PM

And I stood before the mirror then
L
ike I was waiting for a phone call
Squinting like a lost traveler in a thick fog
But nothing clear came into view 
Except for you
Just off in the distant horizon
Something hidden in your hand

I’m gonna break. Something.”
