Kelly. 20. I post lots of things that interest me, if they interest you too I guess we can both call that a win. If you don't see me for a while, don't panic. Life tends to happen when one least expects it.

you deserve someone who isn’t embarrassed to love you and tells all their friends about you and saves your selfies, whether they’re good or bad to look at when they miss you and loses sleep to talk to you and tells you how much they love you and how beautiful you are all the time and i really hope you find that one day because you deserve to be loved

During the scene when Mulan decides to go to war instead of her father, she decides to do it while sitting on the foot of the Great Stone Dragon. The image of the dragon looking over Mulan is repeated several times throughout the sequence, and the bolts of lightning strike at significant times whenever the dragon is in sight. When Mulan takes her father’s scroll and when she is praying to her ancestors, the Great Stone Dragon can be seen. It is also engraved on the sword Mulan uses to cut her hair and the handles of the wardrobe containing the armor are in the shape of the dragon’s head. The dragon’s eyes glowing in the temple symbolizes Mulan’s role as protector of her family awakening, instead of the actual dragon.

The reason Mushu couldn’t wake the dragon is because the dragon was no longer there. Mulan is implied to be the Great Dragon that protects her family.

ICE BUCKET FRAUD: ALS FOUNDATION ADMITS THAT 73% OF DONATIONS ARE NOT USED FOR ALS RESEARCH

clockworkcrow:

So I found this link on Facebook and thought I’d crosspost it here because really what is even going on here. These people are like “73% of this isn’t going to ALS!” Uh? Patient and community services, public and professional education, and research make up 78% of of their budget. And then another 17% is going to fundraising. That IS going to help people with ALS. Jesus Christ, not all of it has to go to research. But when people complain that the majority of the money isn’t going towards research while ignoring that it’s going towards HELPING PEOPLE WITH ALS just makes it sound like they don’t actually care about disabled people. They just want us to stop existing.

Like, don’t get me wrong, ALS isn’t necessarily a perfect organization. But complaining that the majority doesn’t go to research ignores the reality of disability and that disabled people need more than just nebulous “research” to improve their lives.

Go hate on Autism Speaks if you’re worried about organizations not doing what they should with their money.

It doesn’t matter if it’s a relationship, a lifestyle, or a job. If it doesn’t make you happy let it go.

we as a society need to start talking about abusive friendships, bc those exist and seem to be really common

and most people in them dont know how do deal w the abuse bc its normally emotional abuse which gets delegitimized, and its a platonic relationship and not a romo or sexual one, so it gets delegitimized for that too

Please, world, can we have this. Because so many people I know have or are in abusive friendships and it’s fucking awful as hell.

If you speak to your friend about what makes you uncomfortable and they turn it around and make it about you offending them with you being uncomfortable, they are emotionally manipulating you.

If you speak to your friend about things you like and they turn it around and ask you why you’re liking these things that they don’t like, they are emotionally manipulating you.

If you speak to your friend about how you find some of their behavior upsetting or frustrating and they continually brush you off with explanations of ‘undiagnosed’ difficulties they are emotionally manipulating you.

If you speak to your friend about going somewhere or seeing something and they agree, and then bring up concerns you already addressed or objections about how it’s very inconvenient for them and then treat it like a big deal when they finally are convinced, they are emotionally manipulating you.

If you speak to your friend about some real and pressing issues you have to face right now and their response is to bring up something you did earlier that year that upset them they are emotionally manipulating you.

If they are emotionally manipulating you they are not your friend and you get out of it as soon as possible. No matter how reasonable they seem, if they are persistently making you uncomfortable— if you feel you have to walk on eggshells around them— if you get into every meeting up with them girding yourself so you can ‘handle’ them— there is something wrong and you should go.

I.
five sets of two hands, fingers spread wide
my best friend lying next to me squeaks out
“never have I ever masturbated”
a chortle and a shrug between the boys as they flick down their obligatory fingers
and I can’t help but feel a twinge in my stomach as my pinky follows suit
the silence in the room is thick and grey and suddenly sliced by
“…really?”
yes really.
have you ever experienced fun?

II.
I pull away a hair caught in my scarlet lipstick
in my reflection I see my table mate from english class
behind me she blinks twice and scoffs
“who are you trying to impress?”
the bathroom door is closed behind her before I can ask
the last time she did something to impress herself.

III.
before a trip to the mall
one of my friends spends two hours
perfecting her bronzer
and choosing the perfect pair of shoes
the other rubs in dry shampoo
and is out the door in less than five minutes
they are two of the most beautiful girls I’ve ever seen.

IV.
my father calls me beautiful through a mouthful of popcorn
as I pour a glass of milk to accompany my now third piece of leftover birthday cake
he plants a kiss on my cheek and I grin as I wipe it away.

V.
she asks me what to do to start loving herself
and I send her away to my full length mirror
and demand to only speak to her
when she’s found something to adore
the way I did with my knobby knees
and tiger-striped hips
and big square teeth
fifteen minutes go by
and she finally points to the freckles on her nose
splits into a grin
the one that makes everyone weak in the knees
and I watch the lightbulb go off above her head
as she realizes
it’s never been her job to hate her body

VI.
i tell my sister she looks cute today
and the look on her boyfriend’s face
when she blurts out “damn right I do!”
is priceless.

VII.
I used to worry that I’d never find someone who loved me at all
and now my biggest fear
is finding someone who can adore me as much as I’ve come to.
