People get drunk
They hook up with the wrong person
And pretend to be okay
People act tough
And get mad
Distraction in its true form (via nephelopsia)
People will do anything to distract their heart.
They will do anything to distract it from missing someone.
But I have seen the best of you and the worst of you, and I choose both.
Sarah Kay and Phil Kaye, “An Origin Story” (via lphantastic)
“I will remember the kisses
our lips raw with love
and how you gave me
everything you had
and how I
offered you what was left of
and I will remember your small room
the feel of you
the light in the window
our morning coffee
our noons our nights
our bodies spilled together
the tiny flowing currents
immediate and forever
your leg my leg
your arm my arm
your smile and the warmth
who made me laugh
― Charles Bukowski

"Electric". I like that :)
Thank you for the kind words.
I have another chance at SF?! Holy shit so fucking happy :))))
Not letting you go this time. Looking forward to what the future brings.
I really can’t bite my tongue any longer. This needs to be said. While scrolling through recent tumblr posts, my jaw dropped when I saw a post about the character Nan on AHS, with the caption: “I hope the retarded one isn’t the next supreme.” I saw this hours ago and I am still enraged and saddened by it. Before I educate you on how hurtful and cruel it is to use that word, I would like to in form you that this character has a NAME. Her name isn’t retarded, it’s Nan. She is played by the incredible actress Jamie Brewer, who has had to overcome more than most of the petty, insignificant assholes who reblogged that post. Now that that’s cleared up, I would like to inform you that your disgusting LABEL of this character/actress is truly sickening. It is 2013 and people still think it’s okay to label someone with a disability as retarded? UNBELIEVABLE. Next, I would like to point out that a disability doesn’t DEFINE someone. Having a disability means NOTHING. They can accomplish just as much as someone without a disability, and they deserve the exact same amount of RESPECT that you would give someone without a disability.
Some of you may not know this, but I am a student teacher who works with many children who have special needs. I can honestly say that I wouldn’t know what to do if I didn’t have these kids in my life. Their smile is infectious and their kind hearts fill me with happiness everyday. These children don’t have any prejudices, and they are respectful to everyone around them. It’s truly sad that people can’t treat them the same way they treat us!
So let me ask you a few questions. Why shouldn’t Nan be the next supreme? What has she done that makes her unworthy? Why doesn’t she deserve the title just as much as Zoe or Misty or Madison?
I am posting this beautiful picture of Jamie because she deserves to be recognized for her incredible talent and kind spirit. I would just like everyone to look past her disability and realize that she is just like you and me. The fact that she has down syndrome is completely insignificant. It means NOTHING. Please educate yourselves before posting such harmful things about people who did nothing to deserve it.
PREACH. IT. 🙏🙌
Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place.
