Now Playing Tracks

can they see your snapped ribbons? have you tried rolling up your sleeves? there are birthmarks on your elbows and bruises on your knees. scraped palms from all your blind spots ‘cause you keep crashing in 1, 2, 3’s. the first is for your mother, second and third for misplaced keys.

do not let them see your ribbons. please, roll down your wrinkled sleeves. they do not understand incompetence when it comes in 1, 2, 3’s. they do not have your bad days. they do not see the marks it leaves. mental illness is not real illness, until your soul gets up and leaves.

depression is very funny, because on good days it lets you be. but there are never really enough good days to count on filling up the week. so 1 is for dropping out of college, 2 is for being so damn weak, 3 is for all the motivation that there never seems to be.

1 is for disappointment, 2 is for being so damn weak, 3 is for all the motivation that there never seems to be.

you never mastered playing piano, so now you try the mandolin. you learn sharp glass plucks good at vocal chords when you trade them in for strings. the chorus bleeds mellow like a lullaby, and it’s putting you fast asleep. you hope and pray tomorrow is a good day, this adds more bruises to your knees.

you do not show them your snapped ribbons. you talk about happy things instead. like how the sun shines a bright yellow, and hangs heavy above your head. you rub the birthmarks on your elbows, count your freckles in groups of three. because they do not understand incompetence when it comes in 1, 2, 3’s.

This drives me mad. I used to work in a bookstore, and was talking to my coworker and he just yelled out “stop flirting with me!” at this ridiculous volume and it was humiliating because
1. I wasn’t
2. I got in trouble for acting unprofessional
3. He embarrassed me in front of a line of people
4. And he only stopped insisting that I was flirting when my boyfriend (who is now my husband) said, “dude, trust me, she’s not flirting with you” to him

That asshole respected my BOYFRIEND saying I wasn’t flirting more than he respected me saying it and I was the one who was talking! The whole scene got me in trouble at work. And the most ridiculous part is we were talking about a fucking book. In a bookstore.

One time, my ex boyfriend had a crush on some girl, and said that he thought he might have “a chance” with her.

When I asked him what made him think that, he said “Well, she talks to me.”

And this is why it is so difficult to be a girl and be friends with men who are attracted to women.

Can we also add that this is why a lot of women do the resting bitch face when out in public. Cause dudes swear a glance or a smile is flirting.

Seriously, an ex of mine was convinced some fifteen year old was all about him so he kinda stalked her, and when asked why he thought she was into him, it was because she looked at him once when they walked by each other on the college. Really? She dared to have eyes and walk in a place you are also walking?

In high school a boy randomly walked me home from school and when we got to my house, he asked me to be his girlfriend. I was like wtf huhhh, and he said he knew I liked him because in anatomy class when he moved to the other side of the room, I followed him to the other side of the room. Like.. ??? Because I definitely could not have been traversing the room for any other reason except to be close to him. He proceeded to whine about me rejecting him to me and all my friends for like 3 months. The injustice of my refusal!!

ANNIE - Official Trailer (2014)

I’m not gonna lie, I teared up a little bit when I saw the trailer.

I’m sooo excited for this… cheese fest and all!

this is so freaking adorable and yes i cried. I can’t wait.

I CAN’T WAIT

So I’ll probably get slammed for this (because, tumblr) but here goes anyway.  Ask box is open, slam away.

When the original Little Orphan Annie was written, chronologically we were a lot closer to a time where there was a strong bias against Irish people.  By making Annie red haired, it was implied that she was of Irish descent, and by extension, the audience would have inherently known that was part of the bias against her.

Changing Annie’s race to African American replicates this same dynamic in modern society, and that’s a big part of why so many people were upset by it.  A BLACK orphan?!  Nooooooo, keep her white and red haired and cute I DON’T WANT TO DEAL WITH HOW THIS IS MAKING ME UNCOMFORTABLE.

Casting Annie as black in 2014 is a much more true to the original character than casting her as a caucasian red head.

i cried. ngl.
