~ A joke told by the Russian exchange student that used to go to my school (via wickedpedia)
Don’t you ever get my name
tattooed on your skin
Because if I must leave permanent marks
Please let them never be tangible
So that when I run
I can pretend there are no scars
People always say that it hurts at night
and apparently screaming into your pillow at 3am
is the romantic equivalent of being heartbroken.
it’s 9am on a tuesday morning
and you’re standing at the kitchen bench waiting for the toast to pop up
And the smell of dusty sunlight and earl gray tea makes you miss them so much
you don’t know what to do with your hands.

Mine is definitely “human soul reduced to pokemon stat”
“I fell in love with him from the first moment we met but he never meant it when he said he loved me too.”
Jimmy’s wearing Shaq’s jacket and it might be the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever seen.

I DIDNT REALIZE I NEEDED THIS IN MY LIFE
SAM SPRATT’s 2014 PORTRAIT GIVEAWAY
In short: Reblogs and Likes of this picture are each entries to have me paint a personalized portrait of you.
In slightly less short: Longtime followers are no stranger to these contests but for those new to this or me, I’m an illustrator (my work: www.samspratt.com ) who has worked with National Geographic, Janelle Monáe, Childish Gambino, FX, Game Informer, Angry Birds, Wall Street Journal, among others – creating album and magazine covers, advertisements, and posters – but a big part of me being able to do all that has been you sharing my work over the last 3 years. As my small way of paying that forward, I’d like to paint for one of you as I would for my clients, but ya know … for free. Maybe you want that regal portrait of you in a velvet smoking jacket to hang over your mantle, maybe one of your loved one, favorite character, or perhaps you just want me to paint you however I see fit (warning: this will 100% involve dinosaurs) – if you can think it, I’ll probably paint it – and I’ll work with you to make it something special.
As usual I’ll also be sending signed prints and haikus about your eyebrows to extra winners. The contest will stay open for about a week then I’ll randomly draw winners. You can enter on facebook and twitter for extra entries but be cool and don’t spam your followers.
When the things you want to do and the things you should are battling it out so you just do nothing and are both unproductive and not content.
I absolutely hate when songs (or any media) suggest that by having sex for the first time a girl “gives away everything she has”.
Not only is virginity a stupid concept, it is ridiculously, ludicrously, insanely harmful and inaccurate to suggest that virginity is the one valuable thing this girl has in her entire being.
Girls (and everyone), you are not your virginity, or your non-virginity. You don’t lack for things to give, and to keep giving. You are and you have your intelligence and your sense of humour and your creativity and passion and your talents and your fears and your wit and your kindness and your sexuality. And none of those things is lessened by sharing with others, or by having or not having whatever sexual interactions you please.

Switzerland are always forward thinkers.
this is one of the most humbling ad campaigns i’ve seen.
