“I was doing a signing at a convention, …. and this father brought his son over and he said, ‘Do you want Captain Jack’s autograph?’ and the kid said, ‘Yeah, Dad, I don’t care if he likes boys, he’s still my hero.’ And I thought, ‘That’s why I’m doing this.”—John Barrowman. (via owlssayhooot)
“So avoid using the word ‘very’ because it’s lazy. A man is not very tired, he is exhausted. Don’t use very sad, use morose. Language was invented for one reason, boys - to woo women - and, in that endeavor, laziness will not do. It also won’t do in your essays.”
“The worst thing about depression is when you realize you don’t know how to smile for real anymore.
It’s the fake laughter.
It’s always being in physical pain for no reason.
It’s being tired. All the time.
It’s lying awake for hours with your mind racing.
It’s the phrase “I just don’t care.”
It’s boredom but you don’t want to do anything.
It’s feeling trapped.
It’s not knowing what you’re feeling but knowing that it hurts.
It’s the moment when you realize nothing matters anymore.
It’s going through life like a robot, an observer, not a participant.
It’s being numb.
It’s the first time you pray to die.
It’s when you wake up each morning.
It’s when you plan your own death.
It’s the guilt you feel because you “have no right” to be depressed.
It’s wanting other people to notice and care but not caring enough yourself to ask for help.
It’s looking into the future and seeing nothing.”—(via justkeepingmyselftogether)
“Some people turn sad awfully young. No special reason, it seems, but they seem almost to be born that way. They bruise easier, tire faster, cry quicker, remember longer and, as I say, get sadder younger than anyone else in the world. I know, for I’m one of them.”—Ray Bradbury (via thechocolatebrigade)
It’s almost Easter! So to get in the spirit a little, I wanted to post some cute bunny crafts I’ve found here and there. One of my fondest memories was when I was in Kindergarten, and I had to move to a new school; I was nervous of course, but that day there was a little Easter egg hunt the teacher put together and this girl took my hand and helped me hunting for Easter eggs. Oh, childhood!
I couldn’t believe this when I read it….In 1965 Mattel came out with a “Slumber Party Barbie” that came complete with a bathroom scale permanently set at 110 pounds. The doll also came with a book entitled How to Lose Weight. And inside this book it gave the advice: “Don’t Eat”. The matching Ken doll also came with slumber party accessories, but his were milk and cookies, sending a very different message.
