I'm a huge nerd in her early 20's, a Harry Potter fanatic and a double major in theatre and English... I have too many fandoms that I love, so expect to see a bunch of random things. // "Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another, 'What! You too? I thought I was the only one." - C. S. Lewis //
Sometimes I remember I’m only barely in my 20’s. If I only live to be 40, that’s another 20 years of never ending pain. And I could live to be 60, 80, 100.
So you’re right. I AM too young to be that sick. I only wish I were faking it as much as society thinks I am.
*slams fist down on table* I JUST WANT ALL MY FRIENDS TO HAVE NICE HOME LIVES IS THAT TOO HARD TO ASK
Mom: Sally, you can't use Google anymore. They support homos having all kinds of rights, including marriage, and we're against that. It'll tear up the social fabric of our society and threaten our religious freedom.
Sally: How am I supposed to do my homework?
Mom: Just go straight to wikipedia, Sally.
Sally: But my teacher says I have to use a peer-reviewed article from a reputable academic journal.
Mom: Then go to the journal's website.
Sally: How am I supposed to know what website that is without using Google?
Mom: You'll have to use Bing.
Sally: But Microsoft donated money to marriage equality campaigns.
Mom: I'll just take you to the library.
Sally: But my homework is due tomorrow, and, because of recent budget cuts, our library is closed on Mondays.
Mom: I'll just go speak to your teacher and get you an extension.
Sally: And say what, Mom? "I wouldn't let Sally do her homework because I'm afraid of what will happen if we treat people with respect and have that reflected in our legal system. I have this irrational fear that two consenting adults, who were willing to fight for the ability to love each other and have that represented in a legal and social contract that offers protection and stability for both them and whatever children they may have, may actually show up heterosexuals with our 50% divorce rate, because they clearly value what marriage is supposed to mean"? You can walk away now....Oh, and, by the way, we should probably quit paying the electric company as well. They had a float in the pride parade this year. Not to mention, it will help you achieve your fantasy of living in the Dark Ages.
your life is worth living even if you’re “not doing anything”
your life is worth living even if you are “letting life pass you by”
your life is worth living even if you stay in bed all day every day watching netflix
you don’t have to be big, beloved, important, beautiful, wealthy or famous
there is dignity in just being
it is ok to be
you merely have to be
