And in chemistry class I was talking to my friend, Jack, about a gay pride festival I went to. My teacher, stupid nosy bitch, decides she wants to join in on the conversation. She asks me what I’m talking about so I turned around and her reaction was to make a noise of utter disgust. She asked me to go to the main office and get a different shirt. But being the rebel that I am, I told her very politely “no, if you don’t like it you don’t have to look at it. It’s my shirt, not yours, and there’s nothing wrong with it.” She told me again that I needed to change my shirt. I said again that I wasn’t and she told me she would have to send me to my administrator for direct disrespect. So I put on a big smile and packed my stuff up while she wrote the discipline report up.
But the thing that made me so happy that I didn’t give in and change was that as I was walking out the door a girl in my class stood up and started to walk with me. My teacher was kinda pissed and told her that she would get a write up if she didn’t sit down. And this girl, she is my fucking hero. She says: “Write me up then. It’s one more story that I can go home and tell my mothers. And I’m sure my girlfriend would love to hear it, too.” Then she smiled and walked out. I just felt the need to share what happened today with my lovely followers.
“Everybody has a secret world inside of them. All of the people of the world, I mean everybody. No matter how dull and boring they are on the outside, inside them they’ve all got unimaginable, magnificent, wonderful, stupid, amazing worlds. Not just one world. Hundreds of them. Thousands maybe.”—Neil Gaiman (via salveo)
Navy #1:"I'm always listening to Britney or Lady Gaga or Madonna—I don't turn it down or hide it. That starts a lot of rumors and discussions, but that's who I am."
Air Force #1:"All of the pilots in the squadron who talk about the episode of Glee last night—that would have been a giveaway before. I just assume everybody is gay now because you can't tell anymore. Some of my married friends act gayer than any of my gay friends."
Marines #2:"You'd be amazed how gay Marines are when they don't believe there's anyone gay around."
Generalized anxiety is stupid. Especially when it’s brought on by PTSD. 0_o
So I’ll keep pacing and cracking my knuckles all night until I’m off work at 8am, and then I’ll run around all day cleaning the house like a maniac and running to the grocery store and bank and gas station and HOPEFULLY HAVING ENOUGH MONEY..
..because I will eventually end up eating dinner with strangers who knew of me fiveish years ago when I was trying to fuck the gay out of me and things were very different and I have to pretend I don’t feel weird as hell because the last time I saw them I was taking the walk of shame from their brother’s bedroom at 7am many many many many moons ago and their dad winked at me and punched my shoulder in that “good game” kind of way. #tooembarassedtolive
I just sort of want to scream in their faces "I WAS SEVENTEEN THEN, YOU SHOULD UNDERSTAND BECAUSE THAT WAS ONLY A YEAR OR TWO AGO FOR YOU."
Blargh. I think I’m going to try to bail on dinner. Never fear, I don’t think you cared to know, I just needed a place to blab, y’dig?
“Wouldn’t it be powerful if you fell in love with yourself so deeply that you would do just about anything if you knew it would make you happy? This is precisely how much life loves you and wants you to nurture yourself. The deeper you love yourself, the more the universe will affirm your worth. Then you can enjoy a lifelong love affair that brings you the richest fulfillment from inside out.”—Alan Cohen (via timeagainstus)
“Okay, I’m about to say something that sounds like I’m really baked. Don’t be fooled: I am.
What if trees are mother nature’s way of peaking out of the crust of the earth..and the whispers in the leaves keep telling us the meaning of life..but we’re not listening?”—
