Stevie: “Let’s move to Canada”
Stevie: “We need some money, Miriam went to Canada, how much did she go over with?”
Ally: “Ten grand?”
Stevie: “How do people do that?”
Ally: “People save, people don’t buy prosciutto”
Stevie looks on guiltily at her bag of gourmet weekend treats

My iPhone deleted my answer to the last question and won’t let me “fetch” it but your project isn’t stupid and I have all the faith in the world in you. Get free doll, it feels phenomenal
THANK YOU!!! I’m so ready
<3 I’m happy you’re happy and I’m happy I’m happy!!
It feels good to see exciting things happen and I hope it encourages you to go do something brave and a little reckless yourself you know?
You deserve it <3 xoxoxo
You don’t have to be young. You don’t have to be thin. You don’t have to be “hot” in a way that some dumbfuckedly narrow mindset has construed that word. You don’t have to have taut flesh or a tight ass or an eternally upright set of tits.
You have to find a way to inhabit your body while enacting your deepest desires. You have to be brave enough to build the intimacy you deserve. You have to take off all of your clothes and say, I’m right here.
There are so many tiny revolutions in a life, a million ways we have to circle around ourselves to grow and change and be okay. And perhaps the body is our final frontier. It’s the one place we can’t leave. We’re there till it goes. Most women and some men spend their lives trying to alter it, hide it, prettify it, make it what it isn’t, or conceal it for what it is. But what if we didn’t do that?” —

Definitely my stomach and my ass cheek hurt the least. I would say stinging/burning best describes it and for me it’s a really nice pain that becomes a little addicting. My wrist however felt like they were taking a cheese grater to me and I cried a little. Temporary pain for permanent art is totally worth it
Not at all!!! It was the easiest tattoo by far!! Took her like 45 minutes and I was chatting and laughing the whole time :) also I have a question about my arm and that one took like 4 HOURS but that was the artist for sure
Ok, so I have thought about this all morning, and I have no counter argument. I do, however, have some important historical context, which is a reminder of the extent to which labor movement alliances based solely on class (that is to say, those which did not factor in race deliberately) were pretty deliberately undone by the extension of “whiteness” as a general concept. So, basically, white European immigrants, even from formerly maligned groups (like the Irish) were “given” whiteness as a way to make sure they saw their interests in line with the white ruling class and not with their working class peers who happened to be black, American Indian, Asian-American, latina/o or of other ethnic/racial groups. The splintering of the working class into subclasses based on race and ethnicity had a huge negative impact on moves toward unionization and fights for social welfare more generally.
So, the lack of diversity in the 99% movement is deeply, deeply problematic. But, more importantly, it is a direct result of historical factors, that have served to keep working class Americans from effectively achieving their goals. This means it is important to fix this shit not only because it is morally right to do so — and I would say, morally imperative — but because failing to do so only extends the racial and ethnic violence of the past and dooms any efforts at class solidarity.
The Wages of Whiteness, David R. Roediger
This is a really great addition to the conversation from this morning.
I should be working at my “real” job right now. I need my last few paychecks and I need to keep up appearances and yet, I keep coming back here to Tumblr and these feelings of futility it gives me. I can do good here and want to do good here and I’ve tried so fucking hard to do good here, but the overwhelming stench of complacency keeps me at arm’s length.
What can I do to make a bigger impact? What do you all need in order to fly from your nests you’ve made here? Where are my talents best suited and how to actualize that into something I can make a life from? Can you actually teach someone to start thinking past their own noses and understand that the point of learning to love yourself is so that you may love others better also?This isn’t a big dick contest of who can think their shit stinks the least and how to use the power of self acceptance to hold others down.
Let’s figure out a way to turn the mutual masturbation of Tumblr into something of substance
Tumblr has been an excellent breeding ground for amazing things but it’s high time I take some of my own advice and build a life I want to live so that I may show you it’s possible but more importantly to show myself.
Its time to reap the benefits. Its time to take the tools and build something. Its time to honor ourselves and it’s time to love courageously.
By this time next month, it’ll all be coming up roses
THIS MADE ME REALLY HAPPY
<3 <3 <3
Remember that time I woke up bright and early to talk to someone about their homophobia via Facebook status comments?
I’m going to kiss your whole face someday
someday soon i hope <3 <3 <3
love you julia beautiful smart babe xoxoxo
Well I think we have to talk about what people mean by “fail”
Diets do fail in my eyes. There is a very specific kind of lifestyle you have to adhere to and the level of dedication is takes to keep the majority of the weight off is not a life I want to lead and honestly it’s not one I want others to live either. But it’s not my fucking place to tell them what to do, only provide another way if they want it!
I think movement (or exercise whatever you want to call it) is important at any level you’re most comfortable with (and matches your current abilities: don’t push yourself!!) but I think when its approached as an obligation you’re participating in a really abusive lifestyle that was created to control you
The bottom line: do what makes you feel good and always think critically about why it makes you feel good and who you’re feeling good for
they’ll look at you like that because you’re FREE and they aren’t
i want to go to there
YESSSS!!!! I don’t remember what I said, but know that I meant it :)
I want to get high with me too. Prolly tonight
