"They say that you’re supposed to stand up to bullies, but there’s not much you can do when the whole class is like that."
“Why do they make fun of you?”
“Let’s see. My weight, obviously. The fact that I read for fun. Mostly sci-fi and fantasy. I watch Nova. I don’t like sports. You know those loud, obnoxious kids you see hanging out in groups, screaming at people? That’s my whole school.”
“So what do they do to you?”
“Just yell at me and throw stuff at me. But I am proud of one thing. Most kids who get picked on completely spaz out at some point, and get violent. That hasn’t happened to me yet.”
Hello! The girl you painted who has a purple hair, is she Clementine from Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind? If not, who is she? :D —by Anonymous
Hello! Sorry for the super late reply, but that painting is of Jessica Sikosek. It’s based on this photo: http://24.media.tumblr.com/15ab85072788a487e8c38c0b2d451a16/tumblr_mjiy2fxakp1rxfwujo1_500.jpg
The photographer is Raul Romo (raulromo.tumblr.com)
Check them out, they produced such beautiful photographs together. :)
I LOVE THAT MOVIE BTW :))
Why dont you follow your dreams? Follow what you want. Follow what your heart says. Just because you chose pre-med course doesn't mean its really professional. Everyone is professional. Is that what you really want? No? then follow your dreams. maybe someday you'll become the Greatest painter or what. Think about it while before its too late. —by Anonymous
Funny how life takes a turn for the better, because I’m actually really happy where I am right now. I love my course. I love what I’m learning. I love where I’m headed. Who knows what could have happened if I had gone down the other road, but either way, I’d probably have been wondering “what could’ve been”. I like to believe that there’s a reason for why I’m here and not “there”. I think this is what God intended and I trust him completely that this will all work out in the end.
I love to paint, but becoming a doctor is my dream too. :) I don’t see why I can’t do both.
Just another day in Bigo-land
note to self: stop being so gullible
"Julia Child would have been 101 last week. I celebrate her birthday every year. This year I cooked some smoky eggplant soup, and ate it in Central Park."
"Were you alone?"
"Of course. I love to be alone. I’m fabulous."

My comic; “Introversion” is finished! Please go to the main page of my blog to read it in full size (the text is kinda small)
I really hope you’ll like it!
Just be yourself. Don't overthink. I know somewhere, someday, you'll find someone who may or may not think like you but you'll be friends anyways. <3 —by Anonymous
Sounds so simple, right? And I don’t even think I’m that unlikeable, but here I am. This is how it’s always been.
I really do hope I finally find someone. Thank you.
I really thought college would be better, I guess not. I’m still the friendless loser I was in high school. Seriously. I have no friends. I’m in a group of friends, but not really. Like, I’m the fifth wheel. Seriously. I have 2 pairs of best friends. That’s what I have. I have 2 pairs of best friends who are best friends with each other. Then there’s me. Following in the back cause there’s no more space in the sidewalk.
I don’t know why. I don’t know what’s wrong with me. All I know is that I’m sick of this feeling. I’m always alone. Not exaggerating.
I want to go hide in my shell for the next couple of weeks, but I can’t. Cause I’m alive. and I’m 17. and I need to go to school. and try to be liked by people who don’t really care about me.
All I’ve ever wanted is a best friend really. Why does everyone have one, except me? :(
I can’t wait to be done with college.
Kung nagCFAD kaya ako, may makikilala ako na ka-tipo ko. :/
I’m done. I’m done with life. with friends.
I think I’ll just wait till I have kids or sumthin.
I’m gonna reblog this every time it comes across my dash <3
Yes, lets imagine a world WITHOUT MUSLIMS, shall we?
Without Muslims you wouldn’t have:
Crank-shaft, internal combustion engine, valves, pistons
Architectural innovation (pointed arch -European Gothic cathedrals adopted this technique as it made the building much stronger, rose windows, dome buildings, round towers, etc.)
Treatment of Cowpox
3 course meal (soup, meat/fish, fruit/nuts)
Gardens used for beauty and meditation instead of for herbs and kitchen.
- Mariner’s Compass
- Soft drinks
- Plastic surgery
- Manufacturing of paper and cloth
It was a Muslim who realized that light ENTERS our eyes, unlike the Greeks who thought we EMITTED rays, and so invented a camera from this discovery.
It was a Muslim who first tried to FLY in 852, even though it is the Wright Brothers who have taken the credit.
It was a Muslim by the name of Jabir ibn Hayyan who was known as the founder of modern Chemistry. He transformed alchemy into chemistry. He invented: distillation, purification, oxidation, evaporation, and filtration. He also discovered sulfuric and nitric acid.
It is a Muslim, by the name of Al-Jazari who is known as the father of robotics.
It was a Muslim who was the architect for Henry V’s castle.
It was a Muslim who invented hollow needles to suck cataracts from eyes, a technique still used today.
It was a Muslim who actually discovered inoculation, not Jenner and Pasteur to treat cowpox. The West just brought it over from Turkey
It was Muslims who contributed much to mathematics like Algebra and Trigonometry, which was imported over to Europe 300 years later to Fibonnaci and the rest.
It was Muslims who discovered that the Earth was round 500 years before Galileo did.
The list goes on………..
Just imagine a world without Muslims. Now I think you probably meant, JUST IMAGINE A WORLD WITHOUT TERRORISTS. And then I would agree, the world would definitely be a better place without those pieces of filth. But to hold a whole group responsible for the actions of a few is ignorant and racist. No one would ever expect Christians or White people to be held responsible for the acts of Timothy McVeigh (Oklahoma bombing) or Andreas Brevik (Norway killing), or the gun man that shot Congresswoman Giffords in head, wounded 12 and killed 6 people, and rightly so because they had nothing to do with those incidents! Just like the rest of the 1.5 billion Muslims have nothing to do with this incident!
And once again, learning more from tumblr than school and forcefully accepted understandings of the world
I though muslims invented algebra or at least the basis of it? Pretty sure it was this guy.
Muslims and plastic surgery?! I learn so much from this website 😄
‘Fat’ is usually the first insult a girl throws at another girl when she wants to hurt her.
I mean, is ‘fat’ really the worst thing a human being can be? Is ‘fat’ worse than ‘vindictive’, ‘jealous’, ‘shallow’, ‘vain’, ‘boring’ or ‘cruel’? Not to me; but then, you might retort, what do I know about the pressure to be skinny? I’m not in the business of being judged on my looks, what with being a writer and earning my living by using my brain…
I went to the British Book Awards that evening. After the award ceremony I bumped into a woman I hadn’t seen for nearly three years. The first thing she said to me? ‘You’ve lost a lot of weight since the last time I saw you!’
‘Well,’ I said, slightly nonplussed, ‘the last time you saw me I’d just had a baby.’
What I felt like saying was, ‘I’ve produced my third child and my sixth novel since I last saw you. Aren’t either of those things more important, more interesting, than my size?’ But no – my waist looked smaller! Forget the kid and the book: finally, something to celebrate!
I’ve got two daughters who will have to make their way in this skinny-obsessed world, and it worries me, because I don’t want them to be empty-headed, self-obsessed, emaciated clones; I’d rather they were independent, interesting, idealistic, kind, opinionated, original, funny – a thousand things, before ‘thin’. And frankly, I’d rather they didn’t give a gust of stinking chihuahua flatulence whether the woman standing next to them has fleshier knees than they do. Let my girls be Hermiones, rather than Pansy Parkinsons.
"If you could give one piece of advice to a large group of people, what would it be?"
Tilda Swinton risked arrest waving a rainbow flag in front of the Kremlin in violation of Russia’s new homosexual propaganda bill. And she wants everyone who can to share it in solidarity. (x)
WHO COMES UP WITH THESE
I JUST SCREAMED
