“ Stars are not small or gentle.
They are writhing and dying and burning.
They are not here to be pretty.
I am trying to learn from them.

Imagine APH Russia trying to learn how to use Snapchat. At first he sends silly things like close-ups of his eyes and pictures of animals or flowers, but soon he figures out that you draw on them and begins drawing little hearts on each Snapchat he sends.

i need ferguson to go down in history books. i need school children in the year 2074 to learn about michael brown being shot on august 9th, 2014 by officer darren wilson. i need this to spark a movement. this can not lose the focus of society a mere month after it happened. 

I would like all of the American Civil Rights movement, from slavery through to the time of actual equality, to be taught in schools.  How long will that be?  I only learned last summer about the East St. Louis Riots of 1917, from May to July—and these, in which 100 people are estimated to have been killed, aren’t even the only bloody riots for that area, or that year.  American schools haven’t begun to scratch the surface of how black Americans have been treated.

idk I’m just pissed that they cast a supermodel like there’s hollywood being a bitch then there’s them being hypocritical fucking idiots like nat is semi-attractive in a cute boyish way but OF COURSE the female love interest has to be a supermodel right??? because that’s EXACTLY what a high school girl who has “soft curves” looks like

isnt that the whole point, though?

q is supposed to be kind of semi-attractive and awkward, and margo is supposed to be mysterious and unattainable.

im not super excited about the cast either but for different reasons.

but she is at least supposed to look like a semi-(I hate to say “normal” because there really is no normal body-type. But for lack of a better word)normal girl, even though she’s pretty gorgeous to Q. Cara was a victoria secret model and now a supermodel. I don’t think she looks like a girl in highschool, not by many people’s standards and definitely not my own. 

agreed.

im disappointed with the whole thing, tbh. when i heard that paper towns was gonna be a movie, i was really skeptical because i didnt think anyone could pull margo off. and i still think that. idk how to feel about the whole thing.

This Tree Is Growing 40 Different Kinds Of Fruit At Once

This single (and quite colorfully blossoming) tree grows 40 different varieties of peaches, plums, apricots, nectarines, cherries, and even almonds — but just how does it do it?

It does it through the process of chip grafting. After sculptor Sam Van Aken bought a failing orchard in upstate New York full of hundreds of different fruit trees, he began the pain-staking process of grafting several of the different varieties together into one tree. Six years later, the result is this 40-fruit bearing tree, which includes some heirloom varieties that are centuries old.

Today in biology my teacher talked about how gay people don’t choose to be gay, and he explained in in depth. At the end of his lecture everyone applauded except some kid said “I still hate fags” and my teacher said “and everyone still hates you” the kid sat down and never said another word

“ A friend was in town over the weekend, and just as he left, he said “Hey–we broke up. I wanted to tell you. And I wanted to thank you for always reminding me that it’s okay to be single.” He’s an old friend, in the awesome little brother category, a smart and sensitive person who’d been trying to make a relationship work. And there was a lot of pressure for him to make it work, because it would turn him into that magical thing our culture loves to celebrate—a married person!

And I’m so happy that my you are significant with or without a significant other mantra was valuable to him. That’s kind of one of my things—one of the things I love to tell people. A couple other things I love to tell people: go to counseling, make your own salad dressing, just about anyone can run a marathon. But I digress.

I love to tell people that it’s okay to be single because so many of my very favorite people are single. And it breaks my heart when they feel like they’re less or half or waiting around for their real lives to start. That’s garbage.

You are significant with or without a significant other. Marriage isn’t like being named prom queen. It’s a partnership, one I love being a part of. But it doesn’t make me more special. It’s not a status symbol.

You are Significant With or Without a Significant Other

Here’s the truth: some of the worst people I know are married. I don’t know how it happens. And some of the truly best people I know are single. I don’t know how that happens, either.

But what I do know is it’s not about the fundamental value of the person in question. Your value is not up for grabs, and certainly your value is not riding on a cultural obsession with romance and tulle and diamonds.

(via stacylwhitman)

Single is cool.  It’s far better to be single and happy than partnered and unhappy.
