we all have that one friend who is probably secretly a magical girl.
my favourite kind of friendship is one where there’s a mutual understanding of the fact that we both have our own lives so we won’t be able to talk or hang out all the time but when we do talk or hang out it’s like picking up right where we left off
I do not trust [Obama]; I don’t trust a single word from him. Osama bin Laden has been killed, so what does he want more?
Convey my message to Americans: The CIA and America have to stop … they’re just creating more enemies and this will last for hundreds of years.” —Jalal Manzar Khail, a Pakistani man whose friends and family were targeted in a U.S. drone strike responsible for the death of as many as 42 people, a maximum of four of whom had any Taliban associations.

What do you say to readers who are upset about the scene?
It depends on what they say. What can you say to someone who says they’ll never read your book again? People read books for different reasons. I respect that. Some read for comfort. And some of my former readers have said their life is hard, their mother is sick, their dog died, and they read fiction to escape. They don’t want to get hit in the mouth with something horrible. And you read that certain kind of fiction where the guy will always get the girl and the good guys win and it reaffirms to you that life is fair. We all want that at times. There’s a certain vicarious release to that. So I’m not dismissive of people who want that. But that’s not the kind of fiction I write, in most cases. It’s certainly not what Ice and Fire is. It tries to be more realistic about what life is. It has joy, but it also had pain and fear. I think the best fiction captures life in all its light and darkness.” —‘Game of Thrones’ author George R.R. Martin: Why he wrote The Red Wedding | Inside TV | EW.com (via lixstormbornx)
a friendly reminder:
don’t hang out with people that make you feel bad about yourself
i saw a chameleon today so i guess it was a pretty shitty chameleon
With Father’s day fast approaching, I would like to send a shout out to the people typically ignored on days like this:
- To the people with abusive fathers
- To the people absentee fathers
- To the people who don’t know their fathers
- To the people who cut their fathers out of their lives
- To the people with conflicting feelings about father’s day because their own father was a piece of shit but other men they know and love are awesome dads
- To the people who learned how not to be a shitty dad by not doing what their father did
- To the people whose fathers are deceased
- To the people whose fathers are locked up or deployed and/or can’t come home
- To the people trying to mend broken relationships with their fathers
You are not alone. If you don’t want to celebrate father’s day or you don’t want to talk to your father, that’s perfectly fine. Do whatever it takes to make sure you are healthy and happy.
