This bathroom in the Jacksonville airport had a bunch of signs of all different shapes of women and I think that’s pretty neat
Annika. Music. Art.
Tall. Animal Trainer. Polar bears. Food. Reptiles. Tattoos. Game of Thrones. Wonder Woman.
"Delete her number.
Stop ringing her. Stop messaging her. Stop making excuses to see her, to drop by her place.
Erase her name from memory. Remove yourself from her life, more completely than you would like but as completely as she deserves. Move on, so that you can allow her to also move on. When you close your eyes, you don’t get to see her face. Not anymore. You don’t get to think about her lips, the warm glow of her skin when she rests next to you, or how she squeezes your hand in her sleep. You are not allowed to remember the smell of her perfume, that she only drinks mint tea (with two dollops of honey), or that she loves you.
She loves you.
She has been in love with you for too long.
So, forget how she says your name. Forget how she calls your name. Forget how she screams your name. Forget that time you got sick and she stayed up with you all night, letting you lay your head in her lap and holding a cold compress to your forehead. Forget how her hair feels in your fingers. Forget how she looks in your sweatshirts.
Know only that she existed at one point in your life, but relinquish all hope that she could exist at another point — sometime in the future that you are unwilling to specify because you don’t know what you want. Yet. It is not fair for you to swoop in and out of her life as you choose. It is not fair for you to say that you are satisfied with “things as they are” and you will have time to “figure it out” later. Let her stop investing emotionally in you. Let her pour that love and care into the people who deserve her.
Don’t tell her that you think about her all the time. Don’t tell her that it bothers you to hear about her with other people, but that you’re willing to understand as long as she likes you more than them. Don’t tell her that this isn’t the right moment but that there will be a right moment. There is not going to be a right moment. She shouldn’t have to wait for the right moment.
Don’t tell her that you can’t handle ultimatums, that you don’t like the idea of finally adding finality to your relationship — whatever still remains of it.
What you are telling her is that you want to keep her on as an option, that you are taking her for granted, that you want to know she will be there, that you can depend on her at the end of the day. When you find that no one else has stuck around or that those who have are less interesting, less thoughtful, or less doggedly loyal to you.
Doggedly loyal to you.
That is what she has been to you, for you almost as long as you have known her: a constant emotional crutch, the guarantee of stability, a safety net while you reachvout to grasp objects that sparkle and shine far greater than she does. All that glitters is not gold, haven’t you heard?
She is fire. You are ice, and you are afraid that her slow burn will smolder your cool, hard demeanor. That’s what has driven your decisions, your actions all along: fear. You are a coward. You are a hypocrite. You are terrified to let her go, but you are afraid she is too good for you, that she could drive you wild, that you would choke on her flames. That she is too much for you to handle right now.
But if you choose not to love her now, you can’t choose to love her later."
Omg. Whoever wrote this is a genius. Thank you for letting me know im not the only one.
A CAT A FREAKING CAT GETS A STAR ON THE HOLLYWOOD WALK OF FAME AND I’M SITTING HERE WORKING MY BUTT OFF TRYING TO GET THROUGH COLLEGE AND MAKE A STANDARD LIVING AND THIS CAT MAKES A FROWNY FACE AT A CAMERA AND GETS A FRICKING HOLLYWOOD STAR NOPE NO I DID NOT SIGN UP FOR THAT
Men don’t like being called babies. But like seriously, who are you and why?!
So I don’t know how it happened but some 19 year old kid is going googly over my pics on IG, he is acting like a 13 year old girl who has finally found someone cute on Myspace. Like, emoji’s and all.
Let’s do everyone a solid and keep the wild wild by leaving things where you found them.
This is a gopher snake a kid brought into my store. He claims his friend gave it to him and now his parents want him to get rid of it. If you find it in the wild, LEAVE IT THERE!
When you take reptiles from the wild they get stressed and can die very easily. Most herpetoculturist will look for native wildlife, take photos, and leave things as they find them. When you take them home and they die, you ruin the chances of that species thriving and killed an animal simply because you thought it was cool.
It is illegal in California to catch and house native reptiles and amphibians without the proper license. It is ILLEGAL to sell any wild native reptile or amphibian in California. You are only allowed to sell captive born and bred animals.
Save everyone the hassle and look but don’t touch.

Now I’m stuck with an animal I would like to release back into the wild, but because I don’t know it’s history or where it came from I can’t exactly just throw it into the wild and hope it survives. #acd #heeler #cattledog #unlikelyfriends
I saw a large group of young adolescents and adults marching down the street today protesting abortion with signs like “SAVE UNBORN BABIES!” And the kids looked like they didn’t even want to be there, weren’t even trying to hold up their signs.
So I posted on FB how I thought it was a load of shit that adults use kids to market their pro-life views and how the fact that it was also taking place across from a high school on a Friday at noon really made me upset, because telling teenagers that having their baby is the only option if they get pregnant and shaming them to make any other choice will boils my water.
Then this chick who I used to work with commented on the status and told this story with like 20 smiley faces how she got pregnant in high school and chose to give the baby up for adoption and how that is also a choice and if you have sex you should face the consequence if you get pregnant and shouldn’t end it’s life because adoption is totally an option and The Lord is testing me because I want to scream at her via FB that there are enough children that need adopting and people shouldn’t be putting more out there and some people need abortion, especially teenagers, because that’s a really traumatic thing to go through as you’ve said and UGH. I FEEL LIKE WE AARE LIVING IN COLONIAL AMERICA WITH ALL THIS BIBLICAL SHIT TALK.
I was taught that the only 100% way to avoid pregnancy is to be abstinent. Sex my friend, is a choice.
If a woman doesn’t want to be pregnant. Then by golly, she can choose not to get pregnant. Or she can wait nine months as oppose to killing a human being.
Hello friend! My name’s Kendra, and I’m going to tell you a thing:
Did you know that married couples like to have sex? Did you know that not all married couples want children? Does that mean they have to abstain from sex?
(Hint: the answer is no!)
No one should be forced to carry a pregnancy they don’t want or that is harmful to their health.
If you think pregnancy is just “waiting nine months,” then you might want to speak to someone who has been pregnant. I can assure you that pregnancy is much, much more than simply “waiting.”
I hope this clears some things up for you! If you have any questions, feel free to visit my Ask and I’d be happy to answer them!
Also please keep in mind that you are literally killing your own child that was inside of you that you created but you decided that a “pregnancy” is too much to handle. You’re calling a child a “pregnancy” like it is a condition. Pro-life is the only decision that should be made.
So today our university sent out a warning about water buffalo running around loose on campus and everybody was like “haha good April fools joke”
then this happened
WHAt THE FUCK
Where’d we get them? I don’t know. But everybody’s got a water buffalo.
Moving out this weekend.
