So last night had me sleeping nearly 12 hours (zomfg!!!!) which was amazing and only interrupted by the fact I’m a dirty whore and I have to say that getting that much sleep was the most beautiful thing I have experienced in a long time!!!!!
I got to my mates this afternoon and there I was still a little gluggy so I curled up on the couch into a divinely comfortable position and can I just say that NOT A SINGLE PART OF ME WAS UNCOMFORTABLE and it was amazing. I had a nap for a couple of hours.
Seriously, the person who invented sleeping tablets is my current crush!!!
““Consent is sexy” is rape culture wrapped in feminist packaging. “Consent is sexy” is no longer good enough, if it ever was.
I can appreciate that there was once a need for this narrative. This line of thinking has served a purpose and helped bring conversations about consent into mainstream public consciousness. There was a time and a place for common sense arguments like, “Isn’t it so much hotter to get enthusiastic consent from a partner who whispers, ‘I want your cock’ than starting to fuck someone who isn’t into it?” The concept of consent was so far removed from mainstream conversations that we needed something catchy and simple and kind of glamorous for people to latch onto in order to hear what we had to say.
But I feel like at this point, we’re beyond that narrative. A lot of people get the concept of enthusiastic consent. We’re talking about it in more places and with more people than we ever have (though not nearly enough, I know). We’ve made some semblance of progress when it comes to talking about consent. And so it’s time to start framing consent differently. Because, to be quite honest, a thong with the words “consent is sexy” is not just not doing it for me, it’s actively offensive to me.
Because why is the end goal always for women to be sexy? Why is that what we’re supposed to aspire to (and while consent is not exclusive to hetero pairings, we usually only talk about consent as it relates to them, thus being that I, as a woman, should want to aspire to be sexy for a man)? Why is it that we feel like we need to frame consent as something appealing to men in order to make it worth talking about? What if I don’t want to be sexy? What if I just want to be respected? What if I just want to have agency? What if I just, you know, don’t want to be raped?”—Moving Beyond The “Consent Is Sexy” Narrative | Fiending for Hope (via androphilia)
You can be proud of your sexuality and still in the closet for your own safety. Not everyone you know has to know that you’re not straight for you to be a ‘good’ queer/gay. Protecting yourself from homophobes is not ‘contributing to the issue’. Do not come out into a dangerous situation with no support network or without any financial independence. If you think someone might out you, don’t tell them shit.
“I hope you fall in love
With someone who always texts back and never lets
You fall asleep thinking you’re
I hope you fall in love with someone
Who holds your hand during the scary parts of
Horror movies and burns
Cookies with you when you’re
Too busy dancing around the
I hope you fall in love with
Someone who sees galaxies in your eyes
And hears music in your
I hope you fall in love with someone who
Tickles you and makes you smile
On hard days and on easy
But beyond all that I hope
You fall in love with someone
Who will never leave you behind
And who will never take you
For granted, someone who
Will stand by you when you’re
Right and stand by you
When you’re wrong,
Someone who has seen you at your worst
And has loved you
I hope you fall in love
With someone who
Kisses you in the rain
And hugs you in the cold and
Wouldn’t have you any other
Way.”—Wouldn’t It Be Wonderful, l.h.k. (via suchvodka)
1. The brain feels similar to tofu, and contains enough fluid to fill a 1.5-2 litre soda bottle.
2. Archaeological evidence suggests that human brains may have shrunk over time. However, there is nothing to show that humans are less intelligent today compared to previous times.

okay seriously if you’re in a relationship or even a friendship and you find yourself spending more time crying out of sadness or arguing with them, leave them. i don’t care if they’re a modern day aphrodite/adonis or a gift bestowed upon you by the gods. toxic people are dangerous and i highly advise cutting them out of your life and finding someone who makes you laugh until you snort your drink out your nose instead.
I worked out the ‘sit and stay’ button on Darcy, it appears to be polar fleece blankets and tummy rubs.
Dr gave me a Rx for sleeping tablets and I HAVE THEM IN MY HOT LITTLE HANDS so even though I’m exhausted and won’t be able to take one until about 9pm, I am safe in the knowledge that I’m going to sleep tonight.
I got sample pots for my paint and they are AMAZING!
I’m getting my hair maintenance this afternoon and its about 4 months overdue.
So, for someone who only slept two hours last night this is a pretty darn good list of things. So, I just have to get through this afternoon and evening (dinner with my Dad be he knows I’m absolutely shattered) then I will be sleeping. There is even a chance that I’m going to head to the boy’s tonight for snuggles, and if I do that, I’ll have snuggles and guaranteed sleep. Which is amazing…
