femifeisty:

Reminder that while the concept of virginity is technically a social construct, your sexual debut is still allowed to be special to you, and you are still allowed to wait and want to make it meaningful, and your self-perception is still allowed to change after you have sex. Just as long as you’re doing these things for yourself, and not because someone told you that you should. 

You do you.

"Like most sensitive souls, you already know you’re sensitive.
You soak up others’ moods and desires like a sponge. You absorb sensation the way a paintbrush grasps each color it touches on a palette. The ethereal beauty of a dandelion, the shift of a season, the climax of a song, or a certain stirring scent can evoke such wonder it’ll behave as your very breath itself- moving through cells as fuel does to fire and wind does to waves."

"The effect of the facade of the Institut du Monde Arabe the is like a giant Islamic pierced screen, giving great significance and an audacious brilliance to this remarkable building. From the inside it is like looking into the light and seeing a "Stairway to heaven"."

Someone has made fake London Underground signs, and whoever did it is a ruddy genius.

hahaha, Tottenham Court Road is one of my regular stops. Submarine to Somalia, amazing.
Yes. Yes. Yes. I hate Oxford Street with passion! All those annoying tourists who can’t walk! I do anything to avoid passing through it.
And yes parents with a 100 kids should walk on the left.

There is nothing i would like better than just forget everything that happened Sunday night, but then you have fucking pieces of actual human garbage like Game Of Thrones Director Alex Graves, and I feel like I owe it to my own intelligence to spit in their face. I mean, Alex Graves, do you see this? You shot it. You were directing. You were there. Don’t tell me Cersei "wrapping her legs around him" makes it consensual, because it is not enough. Don’t tell me Cersei "kissing him aplenty" makes it consensual, because it is not enough. Don’t tell me Cersei holding on to the table to “get some grounding” makes it consensual, because it is not fucking enough.
Do you see Cersei, Alex Graves? You shot it. This is what you are defending. You fucking shot it.

I am sick of people on facebook who do not seem to understand why this was too far unlike all the other atrocities that take place on the show, such as the hundreds of murders and all the beheadings. The difference is that everyone understands that killing is immoral and unacceptable, but the writers of the show and most of the people involved in the making of it don’t see the difference between rape and consensual sex. The writers and producers put a rape seen in the show, which was not written in the books, and do not recognise it as a rape scene. Once again rape was used as a cheap plot development device and is going to feed back into the disgusting rape culture that already exists. The writers wrote that Cersei had finally given in, contributing to the narratives that women want to be raped. Disgusting.

Behold the Horizon Observatory on the peak of the Halde Hoheward, a rehabilitated slag heap near the town of Herten in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. According to the observatory’s website: “On the plateau of the Halde Hoheward’s summit, approximately 100 m higher than the surrounding, the horizon observatory was created in 2008. It consists of a circular plane with a diameter of 80 m and two large arcs of 43 m and 45 m radius that span this plane. The surface of the plane is absolutely horizontal and is the perfect mathematical horizon for an observer located at its centre.”

I used to listen to Nirvana when I was 16/17 during my Classic Rock period, but I don’t anymore. I love that quote though :)
Nowadays I mainly listen to a mix of post-hardcore, punk rock, metalcore… but not necessarily, I need to hear how it sounds first.
