““happiness in intelligent people, is the
rarest thing i know” — ernest hemingway
oh, old hemingway, i bet you’ve heard about him and his stories a million times
and you’ve probably heard this quote too
often
and now i want you to forget about it
write it down on a piece of paper and then burn it—
burn the paper and burn the memory of this quote
(do it when you’re done reading this poem, because i might mention it again, so it’d be useless doing it already)
stop romanticizing sadness; stop
thinking that being happy means you’re stupid
when your friend tells you a joke: laugh,
laugh until your stomach aches and your insides are fluttering and shaking and you’re dizzy
shoot water at your little brother; hit your cousin with a pillow — battle for fun and laugh laugh laugh laugh laugh
smile
every day. stop thinking that being happy means you’re stupid
“happiness in intelligent people is the rarest thing i know” — ernest hemingway
be the exception for that rule. no wait,
ruin that rule
you can be intelligent and happy; you can see all the downsides and difficulties with our culture and society and
world, but also be able to see the beauty of life
plants. stars. oceans.
go out and smile, go out and
laugh, go out and
shine
and now go burn that fucking quote”
— (l.o.)

“I wish it need not have happened in my time,” said Frodo.
“So do I,” said Gandalf, “and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.”
— Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring (via zeldawilliams)

Finished picture! It’s a homage to both the Karate Kid and the Next Karate Kid movie posters.

We teach girls to shrink themselves, to make themselves smaller. We say to girls, ‘You can have ambition, but not too much. You should aim to be successful, but not too successful. Otherwise you will threaten the man.’ Because I am female, I am expected to aspire to marriage. I am expected to make my life choices always keeping in mind that marriage is the most important. Now marriage can be a source of joy and love and mutual support. But why do we teach girls to aspire to marriage and we don’t teach boys the same? We raise girls to see each other as competitors – not for jobs or for accomplishments, which I think can be a good thing, but for the attention of men. We teach girls that they cannot be sexual beings in the way that boys are.

I actually found it rather upsetting seeing such a vibrant, energetic and strong character in a wheelchair with obvious depression, in a way the it kind of hit close to home.

Finale messed me up bro.
