OH MY GOD MY MOM WAS USING HER EMAIL ON MY COMPUTER AND SHE’S HOPELESS AT COMPUTERS AND SHE MINIMIZED HER EMAIL BY ACCIDENT AND SAW MY KINDLE WINDOW OPEN WITH REALLY REALLY EXPLICIT SUPERNATURAL GAY FANFICTION (DESTIEL IF YOU WERE WONDERING)
I WALK IN AND SHE’S BLUSHING AND SHE GOES “I DON’T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED MAKENNA GET ME BACK”
I BLAMED IT ON HER I SAID OH MY GOD MOM WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING AT?! WHAT SORT OF THINGS ARE YOU READING MOM?! AND SHE BOUGHT IT
lyrics that encompass my feelings atm:
listen / i am alone at a crossroads / i’m not at home in my own home / and i’ve tried and tried to say what’s on my mind / you should have known / oh, now i’m done believing you / you don’t know what i’m feeling
people are people and sometimes we change our minds / but it’s killing me to see you go after all this time / … / and we know it’s never simple, never easy / never a clean break, no one here to save me
i don’t even know anymore, this seems really stupid now.
I’ve been feeling really down about myself lately so this is just a reminder for me about all that I’ve been through and accomplished.
At age 18, I was morbidly obese; my body was becoming immune to insulin, which was very scary, as that can lead to Type II Diabetes. My self-esteem was also terrible - I felt like I didn’t deserve anything, like I should take whatever friends would have me, even if they weren’t always kind. Being overweight almost my whole life and having an unhealthy relationship with food made it difficult to lose weight. Terrified of the health complications I could face later in life, I underwent gastric bypass surgery.
It didn’t fix everything like I thought it would. Weight loss surgery is not a magical cure. Over the course of two years, I went from 275 to 145 pounds, but I lost a lot more than that. In addition to about 30% of my hair from “rapid weight loss syndrome,” I also lost my best friend. Almost a year after my surgery, my confidence was rising and I realized that she had been using me; she was insecure too, but standing next to me and putting me down made her feel better about herself. Discovering this nearly destroyed me and I began sliding into depression, even after I cut her out of my life. I felt worthless, despite my other friends and co-workers telling me how great I looked and how proud of me they were. None of it mattered because I had invested myself in that friendship for five years, only to find that it meant nothing in the end.
For possibly the first time, my emotional well-being wasn’t directly linked to my body image. It was a rough time for me, but I learned a lot and I am so much stronger because of it.
Three years have passed since my surgery in June 2009. During that time, I have learned to accept and embrace so many things about my body. I have a lot of loose skin, a swingy belly, scars, stretch marks, and drooping breasts, after going from a 44DD to a 34C. These may be imperfections, but who’s perfect anyway?
My attitude about bodies now is that…they’re just bodies. I would walk around in my underwear in front of anyone at this point, if only to confront them with a body that is not conventionally beautiful, but beautiful nonetheless. There is no good, bad, right, or wrong, we’re all human and we’re all so beautiful.
filled with donna feels
must rewatch adipose
So many of Whovians can relate to Donna, I don’t know how people hate her. This scene was tear city for me.
WHO THE FUCK DISRESPECT THE HOUSE OF NOBLE??? I WILL CUT A BITCH!!!
Just noticed this in A Scandal in Belgravia, during the Christmas party when Sherlock is deducing the present in Molly’s bag for her ‘boyfriend’ and John knows straight away it’s for Sherlock and looks really sad for her.
Not only sad but terrified that Sherlock was about to rip her apart.
John sees more than he’s given credit for.
this is literally what i have been saying since i was born
