“Soldiers who are not afraid of guns, bombs, capture, torture or death say they are afraid of homosexuals. Clearly we should not be used as soldiers; we should be used as weapons.”—Letter to the editor, The Advocate (via lgbtpride) (via projectqueer) (via fuckyeahlgbt)
so my aunt and i had a short convo about college; she asked am i afraid of starting a new life in such a dangerous city. i said no with confidence. thinking back, i do regret saying no. i will eventually meet new people. i will fall in love, if comes. but i’ve been asking myself this question for…
Minus the moving to another country part, I feel exactly the same way. I constantly have to remind myself that everyone feels like this when they’re about to leave home. It wouldn’t matter if you left now, or when you were 30, it would still be scary and uncertain. But I think that for both me and for you and for everybody else facing this decision, not going would mean asking “what if?” for a very long time. Home will always be there waiting to take us back in if we can’t make it on our own. But going away to college as a freshman..well, that’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that I think we would always regret passing up. (:
I came across this girl’s profile on a website I used to be a member of when I was like 12 or something. This is a girl who takes pride in being “different” from what I can gather.
When she talks about things that she doesn’t like, she mentions that she hates “preppy” girls who act stupid because they think it’s attractive, or something along those lines. Then she goes on to say that she hates judgmental people who stereotype others. Uhh..?
Do I even need to explain the amount of hypocritical bullshit here? People really need to think before they speak. Simply because it’s against the mainstream, doesn’t mean that it is okay to stereotype and go on to declare hatred for stereotypes.
So to those of you that do this: Grow up and think a little. I don’t care how “unique” you think you are. In our cores, we are all people. We are all generally the same when it comes to feeling, thinking, and processing. Our only differences are the ways we choose to portray ourselves to the outside world. And everything else comes up from there.
Kainne and I trotted today. It was the first time since I fell off that I have been able to trot him, because I have been scared shitless. I was all over the place but he was absolutely perfect. His trot is very big and very bumpy. Tia wants me to have him go quickly but when I’m up there being jolted around, I’d rather him trot at a walking speed. It’s still a trot. It’s still huge. Just slow motion.
You will do great my love. <3 Hang in there. You have the skill, the passion, and the heart. Let the fear go slowly. I believe in you every step of the way. I love you I love you I love you. Forever. <3
It said that the people who talk about how happy they are are generally the saddest. It also said that people who make too much small talk and don’t have deeper conversations are more likely to be depressed. I didn’t think it was true until I thought about my own behavior in different moods. Yup. It’s true. And a pretty cool thing to just hit someone out of nowhere.
