"Don’t let anyone rob you of your imagination, your creativity, or your curiosity. It’s your place in the world; it’s your life. Go on and do all you can with it, and make it the life you want to live."
— Mae C. Jemison
I love it bunches, but that doesn’t mean I don’t find myself struggling at times. Fatherhood is incredibly rewarding but it’s also sacrifice. Oftentimes, I have to force myself to get over my selfishness and the what I WANT RIGHT NOW stuff. But I tell you what, there ain’t nothing better than a squeaky, little voice screaming, “Daddy is home,” or when my baby smiles back at me.
My first time and I was wondering why the guy kept asking me “Are you SURE you want a large?” - Imgur
The large is literally a large drink cup filled with fires, along with two scoops of fires thrown into the bag just for good measure.
It’s actually a metal pan that makes about another regular sized fry.
So you’re getting a large + a regular.
Also you can ask for “no topper” and get a normal amount of fries.
christmas is so much worse as you get older it’s like “what do you want this year?” “a sense of purpose”
"a career" "financial security" "a sex life" "tuition for grad school" "alcohol" "a nap" "socks would be nice"
If someone gave me socks for Christmas I would be thrilled.
God I love Tumblr.
THE LAST FUCKING ONE
This is an enormous chain and I’m sorry, but I need to say this:
The laws in the Old Testament were set forth by god as the rules the Hebrews needed to follow in order to be righteous, to atone for the sin of Adam and Eve and to be able to get into Heaven. That is also why they were required to make sacrifices, because it was part of the appeasement for Original Sin.
According to Christian theology, when Jesus came from Heaven, it was for the express purpose of sacrificing himself on the cross so that our sins may be forgiven. His sacrifice was supposed to be the ultimate act that would free us from the former laws and regulations and allow us to enter Heaven by acting in his image. That is why he said “it is finished” when he died on the cross. That is why Christians don’t have to circumcise their sons (god’s covenant with Jacob), that is why they don’t have to perform animal sacrifice, or grow out their forelocks, or follow any of the other laws of Leviticus.
When you quote Leviticus as god’s law and say they are rules we must follow because they are what god or Jesus wants us to do, what you are really saying, as a Christian, is that Christ’s sacrifice on the cross was invalid. He died in vain because you believe we are still beholden to the old laws. That is what you, a self-professed good Christian, are saying to your god and his son, that their plan for your salvation wasn’t good enough for you.
So maybe actually read the thing before you start quoting it, because the implications of your actions go a lot deeper than you think.
because if you have to kill somebody, you better do it fabulously
The Brain Scoop: Where My Ladies At?
This was an incredibly difficult video for me to write and record. I haven’t been this uncomfortable or nervous about an episode since we decided to launch the Wolf series. I did it because I know my fellow female creators are with me: these comments are not easy to ignore, and they do have a negative impact on our desire to make videos and blaze trails.
Things can be said about women being more sensitive than men, or that men deal with these comments too, or that we should just accept that they’re going to happen.. but if I do, I’ll quit. If I accept that this is just part of the deal, this is what it is and always has been, it’s a requirement of my job to toughen up and barrel through, I won’t be able to continue. The remarks are enough to make me want to throw my hands up and retreat to a tiny cabin in the middle of nowhere. If the compromise is that I need to become desensitized, I would probably just do something else instead.
Let’s not create that kind of environment for our peers. Let’s be supportive, encouraging. Focus on the content, not the presenter. Ignoring the fact that these comments are uncomfortable is dismissive and counter-productive: let’s have less tolerance for both those comments, and the apathetic attitude attached to how they affect our community.
And, please: check out the women in the video description for more fantastic channels to subscribe to.
This sucks, Emily. You are amazing.
The most wonderful 2-star Amazon review The Fault in Our Stars has ever received.
As a fan of food prep and series books, I want to read whatever story the reviewer intended to review.
btw, The Fault in Our Stars is $2.99 on kindle today. Amazon’s (literal) loss. Our gain.
