  2. "All of America’s well-publicized problems, including obesity, depression, pollution and corruption are what it costs to create and sustain a trillion-dollar economy. For the economy to be “healthy,” America has to remain unhealthy."
     

  3. Pinterest

    My followers on Pinterest have surpassed my followers on Twitter. Evidently more people like the pretty pictures I repin, than my clever witticisms of up to 140 characters.

  4. ohhhhh hormones

    When my crazy hormonal ups and downs combine with some crazy work-related stress levels the result is not pretty. (Also, they feed on each other. Damn them.)

     

  5. "Bring consent out of the bedroom. I think part of the reason we have trouble drawing the line “it’s not okay to force someone into sexual activity” is that in many ways, forcing people to do things is part of our culture in general. Cut that shit out of your life. If someone doesn’t want to go to a party, try a new food, get up and dance, make small talk at the lunchtable—that’s their right. Stop the “aww c’mon” and “just this once” and the games where you playfully force someone to play along. Accept that no means no—all the time."

  10. Titanic

    I watched Titanic yesterday for the first time in a looooong time. And aside from the odd times where the whole 90s big budget block buster thing was a little too in your face, it still has merit I reckon. It’s kind of stayed with me…

    At the same time, it is so idealistic. Which is gorgeous. Kate does it such justice.

    And also, totally reminded me why Leo was my ideal man-child when I was 13. Adorable.

     
  11. This is really beautiful.

     
     

  12. "I have declared war on the rich who prosper on our poverty, the politicians who lie to us with smiling faces, and all the mindless, heartless robots who protect them and their property."

  13. Monday, again

    I don’t know what it is about Mondays lately, but here are some of my (not very) uplifting thoughts today.

    > What’s the point of knowing a lot about a lot of stuff if you can’t do something with it?

    > You’re only as good as your communication skills.

    > Constantly compromising is a surefire way to feel frustrated and unfulfilled.

    > How do you tell if the goals you’re striving for are actually yours or they’re inherited from others?

    > Why does everything always feel so hard?

     

  14. Defeat

    > Having the sad realisation that the work you want to do you’re not qualified for, even the qualifications you want to do you’re not qualified for.

    > Feeling like you’re failing at your job even though it was something you thought you were actually good at.

    > Knowing that despite all the budgeting and saving, the trip you spend many hours fantasising about probably won’t happen due to lack of funds.

    > Discovering that the idyllic country lifestyle you want is actually expensive and beyond your reach.

    > Feeling like you’re not actually getting any closer to where you’re trying to get to, and wondering why you bother trying.

     

  15. "Re-examine all that you have been told… dismiss that which insults your soul."
