If the mean people in our lives were crappy 100% of the time, it would be easy to leave them. We would shrink from becoming friends with them or jump aboard the nope rocket in the early stages of trouble, and we would feel only relief when they are gone from our lives.
The problem is that very few people are evil all the time. They don’t wear villain costumes purchased at ForeverEvil. They don’t laugh maniacally and stroke their evil goatees while monologuing about their evil plans. They appear in our lives as People-Who-Would-Be-Awesome-Except-For-That-One-Glaring-Problem. They have potential to be awesome, and sometimes they are awesome, and they make us feel awesome, so we relax and let out that breath we’ve been holding in, and then BAM! They show their mean side, and we do a ton of mental work trying to reconcile the mean stuff with the awesome stuff.
Breaking up brings relief, as you lose the constant mental labor of managing the relationship AND the stress of being constantly disappointed and hurt, but it also brings grief. Shitty people who forget your birthday and give little backhanded compliments and gossip about your secrets sometimes give really good hugs, or presents, or are your favorite people to get drunk and watch figure-skating with, or were the sole witness to an important time in your life. The good times were real."
Enjolras is hot. Not Aaron Tveit (well…ok but that’s not my point), not the actor…Enjolras. I can just see myself…it would never be a relationship because he is dedicated to the freedom of France, we would just have hot passionate sex. Several times.
That’s all. I just thought I’d share because this was going to be a facebook status before I realized where it was going.

Because I’m late to every party ever, I have recently discovered minecraft. I wrote a poem about it and here it is:
Arrows from a skeleton / that shoots you before the sun sets him on fire, / and leaves his bones for you to pick up / and use to try to befriend puppies / who reject reject your love always, / can be used to shoot at spiders and squid / and the brethren of the very skeleton who tried to ruin your day before.
Thank you and good night.
finally, it has appeared on my dash
you say “finally” as if you were expecting this
About bloody time.
I think I solidified a professor’s disdain today. I need to learn how to deal with being disliked. It’s kind of a problem. I’m going to write poems tonight. That will help, probably. This post is almost completely pointless. Good day.
Tumblr, we need you! A rogue Arizona State representative, John Kavanagh, wants to pass a bill that would thow trans people in jail for using public restrooms. Anyone could be asked for I.D. to “prove” their gender, and if there’s a discrepancy they could face a fine or jailtime.
When asked why the bill targeted trans people, Kavanagh explained that it’s because he thinks “they’re weird.” Outrageous.
We can stop this bill by taking action at www.allout.org/arizona and spreading the word far and wide. Will you help?
That quote sounds like something out of an onion article oh my god I can’t believe people are this awful
You should help and spread the word too
This is everything that makes my heart hurt and my stomach drop.
If the best argument for your legislation is, “they’re weird,” you shouldn’t be elected prom king, let alone any public office. It is truly awful that grown people are so afraid of anything outside of their tiny realm of understanding that they actively try to hurt a group of people who already face so much, for no reason other than, “they’re weird.”
