there used to be a time when i was just sad from seeing someone’s name and it was so hard not to think of every word they ever said to me but now i’m okay and it just reminded me things are just temporary and i’m really glad i didn’t let it take over because i’m in charge and i get to choose how i wanna be


Today we are launching a campaign HeForShe. I am reaching out to you because we need your help. We must try to mobilize as many men and boys as possible to be advocates for change. We don’t just want to talk about it. We want to try and make sure it’s tangible.

I was appointed…


I have read enough fanfiction to know where that is going

One of the first things they ask you in the ER is to rate your pain on a scale from 1 to 10. I’ve been asked this question hundreds of times and I remember once, when I couldn’t catch my breath and I felt like my chest was on fire, the nurse asked me to rate the pain. Though I couldn’t speak, I held up 9 fingers. Later, when I started feeling better, the nurse came in and she called me a fighter. “You know how I know?” she said, “You called a 10 a 9.” But that wasn’t the truth.

I didn’t call it a 9 because I was brave. The reason I called it a 9 was because I was saving my 10…and this was it. 

Let me tell you a thing: I watched this movie in the plane and it was a fucking disaster. I cried for like 90% of the movie IN THE FUCKING PLANE

me: Oh what the fuck
friend: what happened?
me: this scenario I created in my head got intense

Some snazzy looking textless Disney Renaissance posters I’ve come across so far.

I adore the light in these


Hi Everyone!
So i’ve always wanted to do a giveaway thing as a thank you to all my followers who put up with my rambling reviews and over-the-top excitement over certain authors (I’m looking at you Sarah J. Maas), but i’ve never *really* been able to justify it until now.

How this is going to work is if you are selected to win you can choose from one of the books pictured above (Unless you really hate all of them, then you can pick another one of equal or lesser value but that defeats the purpose) and i will read along with you!  That way not only are you getting a free book, but we can also discuss it as we read which will be hella fun.

There are a few rules to make sure this is fair on everyone and that it runs smoothly, so bare with me:

  • you need to be following me. I know this is annoying, i’m sorry! (I will be checking)
  • reblog this post to be considered. There is no limit to reblogs, the more you reblog the more chance you have at winning
  • likes don’t count
  • this giveaway is open internationally (to all the countries Book depository ships to)
  • you must be willing to give me your address so you can get the book
  • the winner will be chosen using a random generator
  • your ask box must be open, if it’s not then i’ll be picking another winner
  • if you are chosen and do not respond within 48 hours I will have to pass the prize onto someone else.
  • NO GIVEAWAY BLOGS ALLOWED. This isn’t fair on others who enter. 
  • giveaway ends on September 29th
  • any questions, just ask me here

Good Luck!
