if you don’t keep it down about how full you are or sing that silly song about being lazy at the top of your lungs or throw up in the hallway outside of my room (or something) or TRY TO OPEN MY DOOR AGAIN BECAUSE YOU THINK IT IS YOURS i will be upset. just because MOST people are not here doesn’t mean EVERYONE is not here.
Let's be clear.
As a “whole lotta woman” who is 5’7” and 170 pounds, I am a fat-positive feminist. I am a body-positive feminist. I feel like I’ve had to get into too many discussions about it this week alone, and I’m annoyed. The career of my choosing is probably one of the most physically demanding out there and I HAVE to be in tip-top fighting shape in order to do it....
That moment when
andreavengeance: You realize that this time next year, you will be getting ready to graduate with a bachelor’s degree. You realize the school and people you have been so involved with for 3 years will not be a part of your daily life. And you realize how much you’ve actually grown up despite not feeling any different
Writing prompt from io9
I almost never sleep through the night since Mom put the house on stilts. Sorry, not JUST stilts. Stilts with LEGS. Stilts you have to OIL so they don’t get cranky and knock dishes off the counter if they rock too hard. It started when she got fired. She started pulling things out of the “catch-all” drawer, broken clocks that Jon had busted during his I-want-to-be-a-mad-scientist phase, toys I...

I have been struggling with this desire to dress very femininely for about a week and a half now. I have given into it twice, putting on the only pair of heels I own once. The second time donning a colorful skirt and sweater tights and a pair of flats I bought for fifteen dollars and paid for all in ones. The cashier gave me a funny look. But heels hurt, and I can only tolerate skirts for a...
Sometime during the night, the heater had quit and the crack in the window had made him gather all the blankets around him as he slept. He had been staring at her space on the bed for twenty minutes, searching for some depression that her shoulder had made the last time she had slept there. She would turn her face away from him, the back of one hand pressed up against the wall, even though it...
There is very little to say, and it’s been raining all week. Your yellow jacket is still sitting where you left it, slick with water and dripping on the floor. The cat has walked through the puddle six times. My socks are drying on the windowsill and the sun is starting to come out from behind the trees. I can’t find my phone, but it’s been ringing for half an hour. I have said...

maybethings: april-is: After learning my flight was detained 4 hours, I heard the announcement: If anyone in the vicinity of gate 4-A understands any Arabic, Please come to the gate immediately. Well — one pauses these days. Gate 4-A was my own gate. I went there. An older woman in full traditional Palestinian dress, Just like my grandma wore, was crumpled to the floor, wailing loudly. Help,...

litglutton: Today, tumblr has exploded in opposition to Victoria Foyt’s novel “Revealing Eden,” the first book in her Save the Pearls series. This outpouring of intellectual criticism is great! Follow the “Save the Pearls” tag and you’ll found a huge collection of people who have written up poignant and articulate reasons why this book is a very, very bad thing. But what if you want to do more...

Bikers Against Child Abuse make abuse victims feel...
The 11-year-old girl hears the rumble of their motorcycles, rich and deep, long before she sees them. She chews her bottom lip, nervous. They are coming for her. The bikers roar into sight, a pack of them, long-haired and tattooed, with heavy boots and leather vests, and some riding double. They circle the usually quiet Gilbert cul-de-sac, and the noise pulls neighbors from behind slatted wood...

fishingboatproceeds: My publisher, Julie Strauss-Gabel, has a tumblr but hasn’t quite figured out how to maximize the tumblr experience.

Maybe In Another Universe, I Deserve You →
neekaisweird: What if, in another universe, I deserve you? Hear me out. There’s this philosopher from the 1890s named William James, and he coined this theory about “the multiverse” which suggests that a hypothetical set of multiple universes comprises everything that can possibly exist simultaneously. Are you following? The entirety of space, time, matter and energy is all happening at once...

omnomdancing: “It’s just traditionally done that way, and that’s just part of the sport.” “It takes years to master each role, and alternating doesn’t work, she said. Men are typically taller and used to leading, she said.” I personally find these the arguments against role-reversal invalid and kind of insulting. I lead ballroom about as much as I follow in my class and often my partners say...

april showers (4-24)
scottiehughes: this is how you write poetry: belly-up in the gutter, dull rings of petrol marring the edges and rainbowing grey hues across the sidewalks, like someone wrung a sunset fuschia against storms; we let doors slam on our way out into the evening, steering through cold-clotted woolen stares from hollow-socket eyes on the streetwalkers and men at their necks; the liquor store buzzed ...
