Don’t do that. Don’t skip stages in your life. You’re 19, kiss a few boys and wear your heart on your sleeve. There will come a time when you’re 39 and stuck in a suit, wondering why the hell you were so eager to grow up in the first place.
“I was raised in a Christian family, and I asked the minister one day, ‘How can Jesus save me?’ His reply to me was, ‘You shouldn’t be asking questions like that—you sound like a no-good-managed boy.’ I went home and said to my father, ‘You know, daddy, I’m going to leave the church and find out for myself if there is any such thing as God.
“And what I found out is that there is a God. I’ve been shot at, I’ve been cut at, I’ve been knocked down, I’ve been stomped on, and I don’t have a scratch on me. A guy walked up to me one night, pulled out a gun and said, ‘Nigger, if you don’t get on your knees and beg me for your life, I’m gonna kill you right here on the spot.’ Something came over me and said: ‘This man is not God. You can talk your way out of this.’ So I did. Then I grabbed the gun, put it to his head and pulled the trigger to kill him—but it jammed. I looked at it and realized it was a pellet gun. I’m thankful that I don’t have that blood on my hands.
“I’ve learned over the years to be slow to anger and swift to knowledge. Life is good, and it’s too short to find yourself on the side of foolishness. I’ve learned to get up and leave if I spot trouble coming. There is enough trouble going on in the world—I don’t need more of it.”
wait a second
people are mad about Nicki Minaj’s Anaconda cover
i’m wondering where all the “”feminists”” who defended Miley Cyrus’s antics? where yall at?
yall not gonna defend Nicki cause she’s owning her body in a patriarchal society? cause wasn’t that what yall said Miley was doing? or you just like using feminist jargon to sound like you actually care about anyone but yourself/people who look like you??
It has been said that ENFPs are among the most introverted extroverts,
which means that we can spend time alone and be ok,
but then the time gets away from us,
we get lonely,
we don’t get it,
we’re in the really dark place.
"i don’t support feminism because i don’t hate men"

my brain read “tous les mêmes” as “all the memes” instead of “all the same” and no one is surprised
I have a container of Tresseme hair gel that says “TRES GEL”, and my brain always parses it as some French variation of the Doge meme.
TRES GEL. BEAUCOUP HOLD. LE WOW.
My favourite part in Order of the Phoenix is when Harry and Sirius are playing hide and seek in the Ministry and Sirius is being silly behind the veil then he jumps out at Harry like “Haha found you!” and then they laugh and high five and go out for ice cream at Fortescue’s.
"Rise. Shine. Reach outside yourself. Wake and discover the dreams you are capable of when you aren’t sleeping. May they keep you up at night. Marvel at how big they are and witness what they can become. Grow with your ambitions. Flex on those who doubt. Nourish no bad seeds. No black can’ts. No black don’ts. No black maybes. You will. Stretch so that the tension is too great-Become greater. You do not have to dance to choreograph your next steps. Just make sure you get your sun. Black boys. Black girls. Your cage is too small to hold you forever. Show them"

Stop calling me “someone’s daughter”.
That should be enough reason not to hurt me.
