This time last year I was unemployed, broke, and suicidal.
Today, I just got the keys to my first house.
Give it time.every time I see this, I reblog it.
OMG me too! I’m getting my keys today!!! 😳😳😳
CAN YOU APPRECIATE ALL THIS BROWN
Reblogging every time
Hell-aciously busy with work, but I really wanted to draw this comic.
Breathe: I found this app yesterday and it’s really great! It has a lot of meditation tips and it teaches you meditation skills. You put in how you are feeling, and it will give you a choice between three tapes to listen to. I find this to be a really great self care app and it makes me feel good when I’m stressed out. I think that this is a really good tool to use if you’re working on self care and self love. Let me know if you guys like it!
BOHEMIAN HOME OF THE MONTH
This place is so incredibly Taurean … fashioned on the outside from stone and wood, with the interior all wonderfully crafted timber and natural materials. It was built in the wild woods of Pennsylvania and was the home and studio of American artist/sculptor/craftsman Wharton Esherick [born on July 15, 1887] who had his Sun in nurturing Cancer and his Moon and Neptune in earthy Taurus. Many Cancers prefer to work from home; and the Cancer/Taurus combination evokes the image of Mother Earth … and this place looks like it sprung from the womb of the earth. Living and working here, you would feel cocooned in the warm and comforting embrace of Gaia! The home and studio evolved organically [over many years] into a multipurpose house, studio and suspended deck … filled with his furniture, sculptures and other bespoke creations made out of carved wood.
“If I can’t make something beautiful out of what I find in my backyard, I had better not make anything.” [Wharton Esherick]
26 Male Survivors Of Sexual Assault Quoting The People Who Attacked Them
This needs more notes.
no one seems to care if they are guys
reminder that rape and sexual abuse happens to everyone, not just girls
reminder that rape and sexual abuse needs to be acknowledged no matter a person’s gender and “no one seems to care if they are guys” is a typical antifeminist theory that is disproven by the fact that this photo set has 100,000+ notes alone
I’m fairly certain I’ve never seen one of these comics that didn’t make me cry.
I’ve been waiting for this gifset my whole life.
So I’m assuming at least 95% of tumblr is hearing this whole scene perfectly in their head, right?
the idea of people not hearing this in their head is inconceivable
You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.
“This piece was primarily a trust exercise, in which she told viewers she would not move for six hours no matter what they did to her. She placed 72 objects one could use in pleasing or destructive ways, ranging from flowers and a feather boa to a knife and a loaded pistol, on a table near her and invited the viewers to use them on her however they wanted.
Initially, Abramović said, viewers were peaceful and timid, but it escalated to violence quickly. “The experience I learned was that … if you leave decision to the public, you can be killed… I felt really violated: they cut my clothes, stuck rose thorns in my stomach, one person aimed the gun at my head, and another took it away. It created an aggressive atmosphere. After exactly 6 hours, as planned, I stood up and started walking toward the public. Everyone ran away, escaping an actual confrontation.”
This piece revealed something terrible about humanity, similar to what Philip Zimbardo’s Stanford Prison Experiment or Stanley Milgram’s Obedience Experiment, both of which also proved how readily people will harm one another under unusual circumstances.”
This performance showed just how easy it is to dehumanize a person who doesn’t fight back, and is particularly powerful because it defies what we think we know about ourselves. I’m certain the no one reading this believes the people around him/her capable of doing such things to another human being, but this performance proves otherwise.”
this is why performance art is important
So every single person who told me ‘ignore them they’ll go away’ and ‘you can’t let them know they bothered you’ and ‘They’ll stop if they don’t see you react’ and all that bull shit, my entire school career, I want you to look good and hard at this.
I want you to think about what you said.
What you keep saying.
What you are telling your children.
You are making them powerless.
that last comment. actually crying.
the fourth set of commissioned unusual dragon hoards ! looks like the breakfast and comic book hoarders might be cousins huh ? ?
So proud of my mother for doing her own research after I sent her that meme. A sign she hung in her car window.
Is this true?
Not only is it true, it gets worse. The Susan G Komen For The Cure Foundation has actually successfully sued “competing” charities, because (paraphrasing) their “message or branding was infringing.”
You read that correctly: they took money that people had donated to cure cancer, and hired attorneys with it, to sue ANOTHER group of people trying to find a cure for cancer, who, in turn, had to us their donated money to hire their own legal counsel to defend themselves.
Yeah signal boost because not enough people know about this and seriously FUCK SUSAN G. KOMEN THEY ARE THE ACTUAL WORST
