Great! We don’t need relationships to make us happy. Romance and relationships don’t have to go hand-in-hand. You can get romantic about a lot of things. I saw that pumpkin spice lattes were coming back early and I was like [pumps fist] YES!”

reblog if your url represents who you really are 

this started out about my life and i just want it to go out into cars, and speakers and earphones and for it to just be about their lives.


In my personal opinion, as a black woman, this Taylor Swift outrage is beyond over the top.

This is not a Lily Allen/Miley Cyrus situation. Those two women EXCLUSIVELY used black women’s bodies as sexual objects. Their back up dancers were exclusively black women, and their only use was to be groped, shake their asses, etc.

Taylor has black women and POC dancing in all of the different segments. The dancers in the ‘twerking’ segment aren’t exclusively black women. The entire point of Taylor’s MV is clearly to showcase different, talented dancers while simultaneously poking fun at herself for being unable to do what they can do. It’s harmless, it’s tongue-in-cheek, and to equate her video to Lily Allen/Miley Cyrus’ seriously problematic/offensive music videos is too much and takes away from the discussion at hand.

am I the only one who really likes it when ur holding someone’s hand and they just rub their thumb across yours

It takes a long time to figure out who you are and where you fit in in the world. I’m putting myself in all these awkward situations where the dancers are incredible, and I’m having fun with it, but not fitting in. They’re doing the most beautiful things, and I’m being embarrassingly bad at it. It shows you to keep doing you, keep being you, keep trying to figure out where you fit in in the world, and eventually you will

I made a slideshow about how to create a fictional character… I got most of the information from the ‘start writing fiction’ (free) course on the OpenUniversity website and found it incredibly useful so here’s a visual version for you :)
