do you ever cry because a black haired little boy wandered into your life when you were a kid and made you believe in magic and now many years later he’s still there with you and you just know you will stay at his side always no matter what because he’s just so important

I sat here thinking “That’s a highly specific personal experience for 43k people to relate to” for way too long before figuring out what this post was about

ONE WEEK YA CHALLENGE

One Standalone → On The Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta

“What do you want from me?” he asks. 
What I want from every person in my life, I want to tell him. 
More.

No matter how many followers I have, how many people I talk through here, every time I see I have a new ask the first thing I think is “shit did I say something?”

people get angrier about their tax money going towards helping people than it going towards killing people 

I’m simply infuriated because our taxes go to the pockets of our “public servants”.

Every time I feel a tiny spark of hope that I can somehow have my own life, someone will come with a fire truck to extinguish it. YOU DON’T KNOW HOW MUCH THAT MEANS TO ME. THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

I hear you. I got so sick of it I started packing and I’m moving halfway across the world to get rid of that.

I wish I could do the same!

To my staff who have missed every deadlines, who constantly turns her back on me whenever I talk to her about unloading some of her duties, who, out of the blue, told me she wants to resign while I’m politely asking why she missed to time-out on her time card and blatantly told me to just marked it absent, and who told me that she felt useless when I asked her what else she would do if I approve of her request to hire another person to do her duty—in which she answers “I don’t know” (But nope, according to her that wasn’t the reason why she wanted to resign—like hell, I’d buy that): FUCK YOU.

I’m so tired of being the perfect little girl, so kind, so nice. Being polite even when I’m wronged, but instead of an apology I’ll get the blame (for their shortcomings) and my words get twisted so I’d look evil. Like, how would you like me if I just punch you in the face. At least then you’d have reason to hate me, and it would be worth the blame.
