If someone were to die at the age of 63 after a lifelong battle with MS or Sickle Cell, we’d all say they were a “fighter” or an “inspiration.” But when someone dies after a lifelong battle with severe mental illness and drug addiction, we say it was a tragedy and tell everyone “don’t be like him, please seek help.” That’s bullshit. Robin Williams sought help his entire life. He saw a psychiatrist. He quit drinking. He went to rehab. He did this for decades. That’s HOW he made it to 63. For some people, 63 is a fucking miracle. I know several people who didn’t make it past 23 and I’d do anything to have 40 more years with them.

It’s not our job to toughen our children up to face a cruel and heartless world. It’s our job to raise children who will make the world a little less cruel and heartless.

"but-"

POCKETS”

Why The HIMYM Finale Bothered Me

knucklesandgyros:

It’s been about 2 weeks and I’ve gotten enough perspective to try to be reasonable about the finale of How I Met Your Mother. When I initially saw it, I was pissed off. I was pissed off about Barney and Robin divorcing after only 3 years, I was pissed off at Barney randomly becoming a babydaddy…

Protect black women at all cost

this making me tear up because..

THIS is what should be happening!

YES, protect black women at all costs. We are constantly harassed and victimized and not helped because so few people care about us. the black female body is constantly being brutalized.

A fun thing to do when people accuse you of “thinking people should just have stuff HANDED TO THEM! ! !” Is to just cold be like yes. I absolutely do believe that. I think every single person should have their needs met unconditionally without ever having to prove that they “deserve” it based on arbitrary criteria of usefulness. You got me. Busted.

Online shopping

Pinterest/polyvore: you like a thing? Too bad, it’s sold out.

eBay: you like a thing? Too bad, someone else won the auction over you by bidding with half a second left.

Threadflip/poshmark: you like a thing? Too bad, the seller doesn’t use the site anymore and won’t ever ship it.

I Just Do Not Understand Why This Moment Needs To Be Memorexed. | Thought Catalog

I think the reason I want my whole life documented is for the future. Who knows what I’m going to want to remember someday? If I have kids, who knows what seemingly mundane thing might interest them? Maybe I’ll get kidnapped or murdered and the pictures on my phone or Foursquare checkins will somehow help the police find me. Or maybe, like my granddad, I’ll get Alzheimer’s. And maybe having all this stuff available to me will help me remember things longer, or think I do, or pretend I do.

March fix! I got:
-Annabelle Long Beaded Necklace
-Filbert 3/4 sleeve popover blouse
-Melinda 3/4 sleeve blazer
-Hellen geo print pleated skirt (not pictured)
-Walt striped skirt

I really liked this fix. Style was correct and Angie, who did it, definitely has seen my Pinterest :) unfortunately I only kept the striped skirt. The other skirt was great but at $108, too expensive. 

The blouse fit well everywhere but the sleeves, which had an odd cuff that was tight- I was sad about that because it would’ve been the perfect light top for summer, and the fabric seemed like it wouldn’t be a definite cat hair magnet. 

The blazer had an odd shape at first and I hated the color at first. But it was great with the teal dress I had on, and I have other stuff it would’ve worked with too. But again, the sleeves and shoulder area were too tight. I think if it had had pockets and been a color I loved immediately I would have dealt with it but, boo. The necklace went well with it too but wasn’t totally my style so I returned it since I wasn’t keeping the blazer.

The skirt I did keep was great! I didn’t have any skirts like it so it was an easy decision. It’s tight so maybe borderline sexier than I’d like for work, but the length is fine.
