Famous Failures

I stumbled upon this video a long time ago and it honestly made me feel a lot better.

"If you’ve never failed, you’ve never lived."

I could not fit everyone mentioned in the video in this post so be sure to give the video a look.

WATCH IT HERE

As someone who fails regularly, I find such comfort in this! 

I don’t consider these failures, though. The message I take from this is don’t listen to other people’s opinions because half the time they don’t know shit.

Then if you mention it, they say, “oh, but you’re not fat..” in a unconvincing way.

(via wolvesofpatience)

Being fat carries with it a lot of cultural baggage. At the same time, fat people, especially fat women, are supposed to pretend we don’t exist or that we’re not fat. I can’t count the number of times thin people have made reference to fat people or fatness in a negative or joking way in front of me, from the petite woman sitting next to me at the coffee shop complaining about fat people on airplanes, to my friends who routinely make jokes about their “inner fat kids” coming out when they eat a lot, to the women in my family who compete to see who can look the thinnest in family photos. Sometimes it feels like I’m not even there, or that I’m not supposed to be. - Lisa C. Knisely

Anonymous asked: Re: your "rule about naked people" -- How about people who take nude photos of themselves not be stupid and use storage devices that can be hacked, like cloud storage (or take any risks close to that)? Just HOW much personal responsibility does your generation need to shed before you get it through your thick skulls that it only costs $20 for a decent external hard drive these days? :|

I just found a sonnet I wrote when I was fifteen and I can’t believe it… a freaking sonnet, iambic pentameter, shakespearean rhyme scheme, and it’s actually good… I wrote it when I was fifteen… I don’t write anything good these days… what happened

Your tag #university kills the imaginations kids  is so true.  I look back at my writing from high school and am impressed.  Now I’m too critical to allow myself to write.

If whats happening in Ferguson was happening to an all white community, it would be called a dystopian novel

#and all actions against the police would be heroic and daring#and the plucky white protags would be encouraged to use violence to stop the injustice

I’m thankful for Tumblr because I need somewhere to read and discuss race and diversity issues.  I don’t like to post that stuff on Facebook because then my black Caribbean boyfriend will see it and become even more paranoid/suspicious of white people than he already is.
