I don’t care about losing people who don’t wanna be in my life anymore. I’ve lost people who meant the world to me and I’m still doing just fine.
"Our society has become so wrapped up with this concept. Our youth has become wrapped up with this soft grunge, sad, depressed, wallowing in our misery concept. And that’s what cool has become. It’s become cool to do drugs, and to cut yourself, and to starve yourself. And we glamorize these negative, unhealthy, toxic behaviors because they go along with other parts of our culture. And it’s unfortunate there’s great music and great literature but some of those things glamorize self harm and that’s not okay. Movies like Girl, Interrupted, and The Perks of Being a Wallflower, and It’s Kind of a Funny Story, and books like Ellen Hopkins’ Impulse, and certain songs and albums. Different parts of our culture just glamorize self harm like it’s some beautiful, sad, romantic thing—And it’s not! And the problem is, kids wanna be cool and they wanna fit in, they do. And what this soft grunge mentality dose is give you something to be a part of. Everyone wants it. Everyone wants the desaturated pastel, black and white, smokin’ cigarettes, up ‘til three A.M. writing poetry in your notebook, depressed, beautiful, romance that comes with this theme and with this entity and the problem is that all these negative behaviors come with it. And that’s not okay. My objective isn’t to write your prescription that’s gonna cure you and tell you you’re okay. What I’m trying to show you is that you can be fucking cool, and you can wear leather, and listen to old Morrison vynals in your room, and stay up all night writing poetry, and run around the streets with your friends, and wear Doc Martins, smoke cigarettes—whatever, I don’t care, you’re young—but you can do all these things, and you can be a poetic, creative deep soul, and not have to hate yourself." - Ashley Frangipane (x)
every time someone calls me cute I automatically think it’s a plot to make fun of me
I’m almost done with EMT school, and I can verify this 100%. We don’t give a shit what you’ve taken or how illegal it may be. We want to know what and how much so we can save your ass. Unless its directly related to a crime scene in some way, we don’t tell.
It makes me enraged and also deeply saddened that the police state has become so entwined with every aspect of our lives that people are afraid to tell the truth to people trying to render them with emergency care. We’ve broken ourselves.
Boost because everyone should know!!!
My uncle was an EMT and I can verify this is true.
do you ever just think about someone and immediately get really happy because their mere existence is a source of joy to you
A man in the grocery store line today approached me and said, “Sir, when I first saw you I was extremely attracted to you, but then I noticed that you are a boy. How… I mean, why do you dress so provocatively?”
I responded, “Well, in today’s world the majority of the straight male race view women as objects, or something that belongs to them. I dress provocatively because it attracts the attention of men in a sexual and OBJECTIVE way. However, when realized that I am actually male, they often become confused, disgusted, upset or all of the above. By inflicting this minor emotional damaged upon the ego of a man raised by twisted societal gender norms, maybe, just maybe the individual will think twice before viewing another woman with an objective attitude and sense of belonging. No woman, belongs to ANYONE. Male or female, the equality of human beings needs to be a priority. It is something worth dressing up for.”
I AM NOT KIDDING. The woman behind me, the female cashier, the old lady bagging groceries and the woman in front of me who was talking on the phone STOPPED, …. and proceeded to gasp and clap. The man shook my hand, told me to have a blessed day and then said, “excuse me ladies, I need to visit my daughter.”
…. I was shaking by the time I walked out of the store.

honestly found this cool as fuck.
I love how they have drugs, alcohol, and then Starbucks
The cocaine gif made me laugh a little too hard.
Wanted to share this helpful tool with anyone who needs it. A lot of people have a hard time putting their feelings into words and identifying what emotions they are feeling. This is called a feeling wheel. It can help you get to the core emotion you are experiencing and help you name each feeling when you’re overwhelmed with many emotions
this is so cool
THIS IS REALLY IMPORTANT
Art dump part 4
okay story time
so my art teacher assigned us to do a chalk pastel still life of fruits n shit and I was like “no”
so I drew a banana instead.
and my teacher came by like “you need to have more than one fruit in your still life”
so I was like “k”
and so I put that cherry on top of the banana and titled it “Banana Split Without The Ice Cream Because Life Is Full Of Disappointments: By Fall Out Boy" and I turned that shit in.
My art teacher just started laughing out loud in the middle of class
