"Tell the chef, the beer is on me."
Weimar, im Bus.
Zwei ca. 8 Jahre alte Jungs sitzen im Bus nebeneinander und unterhalten sich. Plötzlich merkt der eine, dass er aussteigen muß. Er verabschiedet sich und rennt zur Tür. Der zweite Junge bleibt zurück, schaut etwas unschlüssig und rennt auf einmal an die Bustür und schreit seinem Kumpel hinterher:
“Hans, ich hab dich lieb!!!!”
Dann geht er zurück an seinen Platz im Bus und murmelt, für alle noch hörbar: “Das wollt ich dir schon lange mal sagen, so.”

Whenever my parrot flips out and gets angry, I say, “Hey,” in this soft, comforting voice and then talk to him gently. He calms down within seconds.
I just got frustrated enough at something that I went, “ARGH.” My parrot said, “Hey,” all softly and sweetly like a dozen times over the next minute. It made me feel better instantly.
My parrot is better at conflict de-escalation than most people.
“a writer’s character’s viewpoints don’t reflect the writer’s viewpoints!!!” actually, they do.
that doesnt mean having a, for instance, homophobic character means the author is homophobic. but how is the homophobia treated? is it criticized? is it excused, idealized? is it framed so that the homophobia is clearly wrong? does the inclusion of homophobia in the narrative serve a point?
writers, especially professional published writers, know that their writing has an impact, and the morals they put forward in their work reflect deeply on themselves. they know how they frame and present their work can completely change the result and effect it has.
so maybe the character’s viewpoints don’t say much about the writer, but how the writer presents this character and its viewpoints says a hell of a fuckin lot about the writer.
“ “What this article is saying, as are the roughly 9 million other helicopter parent stories, is that overly involved parenting is harmful. We all agree that it is. But they all place the blame on parents, especially mothers, while the larger story goes unremarked upon: Sure, children with anxious parents are harmed. But the source of the anxiety is living in a culture in which there is very little room for meandering exploration, for experimentation, for failure. We wake them up for tests because for high school students, one bad grade affects college acceptance—and when college is the key to a middle-class life, you can bet parents are going to do anything they can to bolster their kid’s chances. The question is not “Why are parents so pushy and egotistical,” the question is “Why is success reserved for so few people in this country?”
Parents are anxious for good reason: Jobs are hard to come by, housing is expensive, schools vary wildly in quality, and student loans can be predatory. Instead of blaming parents for being anxious, perhaps we could work toward eliminating the sources of anxiety! Instead of saying, “Parents, don’t be so high-strung! Let your children fail,” perhaps we should be saying, “What can we be doing, as a society, to make sure that failure is not so catastrophic for individuals?” What if a cheap community college meant job prospects as promising as those for Ivy Leaguers? What if state schools were free, jobs were plentiful, and lousy health insurance policies didn’t mean bankruptcy?” — ”
My boyfriend just told me that he wouldn't want to be with me if I got a nose piercing, he thinks they're ugly so he told me to choose between him and getting piercings, and that if I loved him I'd choose him, but if he loved me he wouldn't beat me down like this?
So when u get ur nose pierced make sure to clean it with non iodized sea salt and distilled water”
Yes. That is me on the far left.
This was such a powerful and poignant shoot for the Diva Kurves Malibu Collection. I go to work with an amazing confident group of ladies. And Francie Maupin is the sweetest, most down to earth models i’ve met. This was a big opportunity for me. And we look AMAZING.

"Basically the price of a night on the town!"
"I'd love to help kickstart continued development! And 0 EUR/month really does make fiscal sense too... maybe I'll even get a shirt?" (there will be limited edition shirts for two and other goodies for each supporter as soon as we sold the 200)
