America, Bad, and Be Like: Lou Ohio I need to get my life off my chest. About me. I'm a 46 year old banker and I have been living my whole life the opposite of how I wanted. All my dreams, my passion, gone. In a steady 9-7 job. 6 days a week. For 26 years. I repeatedly chose the safe path for everything, which eventually changed who I was. Today I found out my wife has been cheating on me for the last 10 years. My son feels nothing for me. I realised I missed my father's funeral FOR NOTHING. I didn't complete my novel, travelling the world, helping the homeless. All these things I thought I knew to be a certainty about myself when i was in my late teens and early twenties. If my younger self had met me today, I would have punched myself in the face. I'll get to how those dreams were crushed soon. Let's start with a description of me when I was 20. It seemed only yesterday when I was sure I was going to change the world. People loved me, and I loved people. I was innovative, creative, spontaneous, risk taking and great with people. I had two dreams. The first, was writing a utopic/dystopic book. The second, was travelling the world and helping the poor and homeless. I had been dating my wife for four years by then. Young love. She loved my spontaneity, my energy, my ability to make people laugh and feel loved. I knew my book was going to change the world I would show the perspective of the 'bad' and the twisted', showing my viewers that everybody thinks differently, that people never think what the do is wrong. I was 70 pages through when i was 20.I am still 70 pages in, at 46. By 20, I had backpacking around New Zealand and the Philippines. I planned to do all of Asia, then Europe, then America To date, I have only been to New Zealand and the Philippines. Now, we get to where it all went wrong. My biggest regrets. I was 20. I was the only child. I needed to be stable. I needed to take that graduate job, which would dictate my whole life. To devote my entire life in a 9-7 job. What was I thinking? How could I live when the job was my life? After coming home, I would eat dinner, prepare my work for the following day, and sleep at 10pm, to wake up at 6am the following day God, I can't remember the last time I've made love to my wife Yesterday, my wife admitted to cheating on me for the last 10 years. 10 years. That seems like a long time, but i can't comprehend it. It doesn't even hurt. She says it's because I've changed. I'm not the person l was. What have I been doing in the last 10 years? Outside of work, I really can't say anything. Not being a proper husband. Not being ME. Who am 1? What happened to me? I didn't even ask for a divorce, or yell at her, or cry. I felt NOTHING. Now I can feel a tear asl write this. But not because my wife has been cheating on me, but because I am now realising I have been dying inside. What happened to that fun-loving, risk taking, energetic person that was me, hungering to change the world? I remember being asked on a date by the most popular girl in the school, but declining her for my now-wife. God, I was really popular with the girls in high school. In university/college too. But i stayed loyal. I didn't explore. I studied every day Remember all that backpacking and book-writingI told you about? That was all in the first few years of college. I worked part-time and splurged all that I had earned. Now, I save every penny. I don't remember a time I spend anything on anything fun. On anything for myself. What do I even want now? My father passed ten years ago. I remember getting calls from mom, telling me he was getting sicker and sicker. I was getting busier and busier, on the verge of a big promotion. I kept putting my visit off, hoping in my mind he would hold on. He died, and I got my promotion. I haven't seen him in 15 years. When he died, I told myself it didn't matter what I didn't see him. I rationalized that being dead, it wouldn't matter anyway. WHAT WAS I THINKING? Rationalizing everything, making excuses to put things off. Excuses Procrastination. It all leads to one thing, nothing. I rationalized that financial security was the most important thingInow know, that it definitely is not. I regret doing nothing with my energy, when I had it. My passions. My youth. I regret letting my job take over my life. I regret being an awful husband, a money- making machine. I regret not finishing my novel, not travelling the world. Not being emotionally there for my son. Being a damn emotionless wallet. If you're reading this, and you have a whole life ahead of you, please. Don't procrastinate. Don't leave your dreams for later. Relish in your energy, your passions. Don't stay on the internet with all your spare time (unless your passion needs it). Please, do something with your life while you're young. DO NOT settle down at 20. DO NOT forget your friends, your family Yourself. Do NOT waste your life. Your ambitions. Like I did mine. Do not be like me srsfunny: A Sad But Common Story

God, Ice Age, and Earth: wet-monsoon: i'm convinced that the ice age franchise won't end until the squirrel that always chases after the nut gets an equally hideous girlfriend with Squirrel TitsTM and eyelashes giatrdsnake already happened. they broke up tho. no...No Googl le ice age squirrel girlfriend ice age squirrel girtfriend ice age scrat girlfriend name Press Enter to search. NO claratyler No you don't understand, I have this entire developed theory about the Ice Age universe which has been cooking up in my mind and has only be reinforced by the latest 5th installment Scrat is the god of the ice age universe. The story began with him and the story will end with him. If there weren't hints before, in this latest installment, it becomes clear that Scrat's actions dictate what happens on Earth and to the protagonists. Yes, maybe Scart's only goal is to get the nut, but his actions SHAPE what happens in the film If we needed any further proof then may I point out something Buck said in the 5th film along the lines of "we're 6 mins early! Somebody up there likes us!" That phrase is usually used to refer to a god and in this case it's used to refer (unknowingly) to scrat! However, there is an ALTERNATE theory that I have been working on. What if Scart isn't the god of the ice age universe, but rather, the NUT is? As i have already said, Scart's actions shape the course of the story but what motivates Scart? That's right: the nut, it is truly because of the nut that Scart does what he does that leads to the events that take place in the story This would create an interesting metaphor here. Scrat is chasing the nut like man chases divinity So when will the Ice Age saga end?? When Scart finally gets the nut for good When man catches Goo wet-monsoon Regarding Scrat All Hail The 🌰

The tournament, held in Queens, New York, has been plagued by an unrelenting heat wave with temperatures soaring upward of 96 degrees Tuesday, with a heat index making it feel like over 100 degrees at times. The players were given a 10-minute break to cool off and rehydrate, during which Alizé Cornet put on a fresh shirt. When she returned to the court, she realized her shirt was on backward. She quickly took off the shirt and put it back on, prompting umpire Christian Rask to hit her with a code violation. Women’s Tennis Association rules dictate that players may only remove shirts while off-court. No such rules apply to male players, who took their shirts off frequently Tuesday, to deal with the blistering heat. Horny old straight man culture be like

Bodies , Clothes, and Curving: such-justice-wow: my-little-ninja: sealpremacy: ariaste: girljanitor: bashi-bazouk: peppercyanide: sisterwolf: via I never even c wow How did they get away with that AH I LOVE THIS What do you mean how did they get away with it? History isn’t one straight line progressing towards a liberal society. Look how much Americans attitudes have changed between 1980 and today. 1980 was the first time most very religious people voted, they abstained before that at the behest of their churches. Now they dictate policy at every election. In my family photo album there are pictures from the 20s of a woman called ‘uncle bob’. She dressed in men’s clothing, and had a ‘companion’. This was a rough industrial town, they were working class, nobody cared. It was her business. This is why politics is important - the moment you think everything is better today than it was in the past, you let other people take control of the direction society goes in - with you sitting back presuming we’re going forwards. reblogging for the commentary Also, I just want to point out – look at the lengths of the sleeves on both of them. Look at the curve of her waist. Look at how far the hem of the dress is from the floor.They didn’t just swap clothes with each other for a joke. Those clothes are THEIR OWN – literally made and tailored for their bodies specifically. In that time, buying clothes was INCREDIBLY expensive. An average person might have three or four outfits total. These people ARE a little on the wealthy side (his skirt is silk; her jacket is of clearly fine quality, and her trousers have a crisp crease from ironing), but they still wouldn’t have owned clothes in the quantity and variety that we do today. All of these clothes were a deliberate and intentional investment of a not insignificant amount of cash and time. They wear these clothes regularly. It’s fake tho Its a deviantart fetish pic?!? It’s a damn fine edit though Not really. One glance at the necks and you can pretty much tell it’s shopped. Tumblr is so gullible.

So when you were a kid, is that what you imagined? GAIMAN: When I was a kid, we actually lived in a house that had been divided in two at one point, which meant that one room in our house opened up onto a brick wall And I was convinced all I had to do was just open it the 4G 19:47 And I was convinced all I had to do was just open it the right way and it wouldn't be a brick wall.

So she'd come and climb on my ap and dictate stories to me.

Alive, Be Like, and Dude: probably-voldemort Okay so like there are vampires but one of the side effects of becoming a vampire is that you can't explicitly tell people you're a vampire Like, if they already know you're a vampire, that's cool and you can talk about it with them whenever. And if they don't know but are straight up like "hey are you a vampire?" you can be like "yes I am" and then you can talk to them about being a vampire because they already know now. But the point is you can't tell people So you've got this vampire who really wants to tell their friends and they're dropping all these hints and being as obvious as they possibly can be but their friends just think they over-exaggerate everything "Hey, when did you learn to lock pick?" "Sometime around the middle ages, I think." "Okay, fine, I won't pry then." "Cool shirt! When did you get it?" "Oh, about fifty years ago or so." "Dude you weren't even alive. It's a hand-me-down, then?" "Hey check out this cool Renaissance painting." "points to a person lying dramatically on the ground* "That's me." "Haha, that totally would be you. I'm the one getting his head chopped off" "No, you don't get it that's actually me." "God, I know. You're so dramatic." "How long has it been since you've been to Europe?" "A couple centuries at least." "What's this red drink in your fridge?" "Blood." Is it that new diet drink?" "No it's blood." "No, seriously. I'm thinking about trying this diet. Does it work?" sighs" "No." How come you don't have any mirrors in your house?" "I don't have a reflection.""Cool It's really admirable that you're not letting society's expectations dictate your life." "Hey, it's really sunny out today. Wanna go for a walk?" "No. I will literally burn up and die." "Fine, stay inside and watch Netflix. That's cool too "I heard these coffin beds are really supposed to help you sleep. I've never seen one this cool though. Where'd you get it?" "I was buried in it." "Fine Don't tell me." Dude, why are you always so cold?" "I'm dead." "No, really. I think you might be anemic. Are you getting enough iron?"
