I repeat, unless it’s a loan she agreed to take out, a woman does not OWE you anything. Not a thing. Ever.
she draws, writes, models, takes photographs
everything you see here is by her unless it says it isn't
A message to strengthen all my friends suffering from anxiety and depression: your condition is a real medical problem. Yesterday, a lot of people at work saw me cry, and at first I was embarrassed because I didn’t want them to perceive me as “crazy”… But the thing is, I am mentally ill. Ill. Sick. If I had thrown up in front of people at work, would I fear how it affected their view of me? No. It’s the same thing. I exhibited a symptom of an illness publicly and if people see me differently or negatively because of that, it is because of their own ignorance and hope they are educated some day.
I will be seeing a psychiatrist in a week and I am so excited.

The same way I have folded origami. As an atheist I just can’t see how it’s any different. Both are complex crafts from different cultures admired for their beauty, and nothing beautiful should be off limits to someone because of the color of their skin. Saying that one race can’t share something because their ancestors said it was special doesn’t make sense. Saying that one race can’t be a part of something beautiful because THEIR ancestors hurt the ancestors of that culture’s current generation also doesn’t make sense.
I wish I had the patience to make a dream catcher right now.

He did. Feel free to google it.
Just enough to still be adorable
So someone said to me that you can never meet a good person off the Internet. I want to prove them wrong. Reblog if you’ve met someone from the Internet and they’ve turned out to be one of the best people to ever exist.
My longest relationship is with a girl I met on a penpal website for children. Ten years later we still talk every day.
I graduated in 2011
And now one in every five people I went to high school with has a child. I put this statistic on Facebook and kind of harshly added in a comment reply to someone else, “Yeah, what is wrong with this place?”
A girl a year or two younger than me, a single mother, said, “There’s nothing wrong with having kids.”
I wish I had less tact, because here is what I wish I could tell her:
There’s nothing wrong with having a kid but the statistics prove that the younger a person is when they have a child, the higher chance that the child will be raised by a single parent, have a lesser degree of education, and a higher chance of being involved in drugs, addiction, and crime. There are plenty of children who do not fit this statistic, but on average the chances are just higher than the national average of a child born in a marriage in someone’s 20s or 30s.
I don’t think there’s anything wrong with having kids but personally I believe in waiting until you have someone you’re going to spend the rest of your life with, until you have your own home that you make your own payments on, and have the financial means to not only provide the child with survival but all of the toys, books, pretty clothes, etc, AND the ability to start a savings account for the child to someday help put him or her through college.
I plan in taking the action to make sure I have all of this ready, and plan a time when I think my family is ready for this before bringing a completely new human into the world.
It’s like people where I’m from DO NOT UNDERSTAND THE CONCEPT THAT A BABY CAN BE PLANNED.
Anonymous said: I enjoy your blog. As a white person, I don't feel uncomfortable by seeing black culture, it's very educational. So not all of us find it a problem.
well it’s a great thing i wasn’t seeking your approval…. <3
Yes, because “I am white and I like your blog” = “I am white, here is my permission for you to keep doing this”… No…
Sometimes a compliment is just a compliment. Sometimes people just like to share their point of view. I don’t know what exactly about this anon’s words made you defensive, but if you could explain it to me, I would literally-and-not-sarcastically appreciate that.
If you don’t want white people sharing their point of view, ever, even to compliment you, then that’s racist. Despite white people being the devil allll throughought history (not disputing that), if you think that each individual white person doesn’t have anything valid to say because of the color of their skin, that is racist. If you think it isn’t, once again, please explain to me why, because I must be ignorant.
And yes, I am new here. Educate me.
