velocicrafter: agendered words to describe: people who are attracted to male-type people who are attracted to female-type people who are attracted to people, regardless of perceived gender type (ok I guess “pansexual” kind of covers that? I might be wrong.) I always get annoyed (because I’m uppity &… I’ve heard androsexual and gynesexual used in certain circles.
My mother is the kind of person who wouldn’t want me using tumblr in her house because “it’s a porn site”.
As of yesterday I am 22 years old. Fuck. Whatever. Celebrated in style by seeing Dead Meadow last night and Boris the night before. Will reblog some photos my mate took at Boris. It was really fucking good. Best mood I’ve been in for ages.
Women don't have to:
be thin have a vagina give birth cook for you have long hair wear makeup have sex with you be feminine be graceful shave diet be fashionable wear pink love men be the media’s idea of perfection listen to your bullshit
There is immeasurably more left inside than what comes out in words.– Fyodor Dostoevsky (via penseesduchoeur)
Every time I see someone with a sign that says, ‘the end is near,’ I get sad in...– Joey Comeau (via myheadisweak)
Today I feel like I can never be interested in music again unless it sounds like pre-sell-out SPK. Pretty sad place to be for an aspiring musician. This feeling is amplified by my re-reading of Goodbye 20th Century, which depicts almost the exact music scene of the 80s I could be a part of, but that simply cannot exist anymore. Especially not here. I am feeling anachronistic and uninspired, or...
Queer doesn’t mean “don’t label me,” it means “I am naming myself.” It means...– What Queerness Means to Me | Tranarchism (via doxian) YES!! (via chasingdevon)
rev: I haven’t been able to talk about Trayvon Martin because I can’t get any further than ‘Fuck white people’. Now, being a white person and saying “fuck white people” is usually met with questioning faces or claims of self-hatred. When I say “fuck white people”, I’m not expressing hatred for myself or for any particular white people (unless I’m addressing them specifically). When I say “fuck...
What’s the use of a fine house if you haven’t got a tolerable planet to put it...– Henry David Thoreau
I feel totally irrelevant when I’m at home ie. not with my friends. I really don’t care for being alone at all. I’ve changed. Mind you, only some people will do. I’m over surface level friendships, they are boring and a waste of time. If you’re not totally invested or willing to take a chance, don’t bother at all. And please, let me know so I can stop...
Mostly I use tumblr to talk to myself and to try to clarify the shit that’s going down in my head. It has come to my attention that more people I know from Auckland might be reading this tumblr soon. You’ll probably figure out quickly that I don’t censor myself and I don’t pretend to be what I’m not. As you probably know from facebook, I’m a quiet person,...
Today I filled out and sent a job application, and then cried about how demoralising it was. Actually cried. A friend of mine was also incredibly condescending about it. Nice going. A great conclusion to what has just been an absolutely stellar week.
If you are to look at addiction as pertaining to a vice that dominates your thinking every day, as something you need more than you need to feel happiness or worthiness, as a vital organ for living itself, then depression is most certainly an addiction. This is why people always talk about the comfort of depression - it is something that requires energy to change, energy which, by nature, a...
Everyone is feeling the exact same way and everybody just keeps it to themselves and so everybody thinks they are the only one. Or maybe it’s not that at all O_o
petrichoriousparalian: nowaitninjas: i visited the friend zone to see if i could make some friends but it was just a bunch of angry men’s rights activists in fedoras??? More likely Trilbys than fedoras. The Trilby is the douchebag’s fedora.
The more asexuals talk about demisexuality, the more of a sceptic I become. You’re describing normal, common human sexual attraction, and then you’ve just turned it into a rule rather than something organic. I understand the need to feel special, but the need to be honest about it trumps all to me.
I am being completely honest when I say I still can’t figure out why the people I hang out with care about me or even like me. I wouldn’t call myself the most pleasant or easy company, not by a long shot. Maybe people see their insecurities reflected in me? I am either totally heart-on-sleeve or totally cold, depending on what I think of you. I think either is annoying. The point is, I’m...
This sounds really arrogant, but I swear that given 45 years of experience in the field, I could write much better reviews than Roger Ebert. The only thing I can give him in his defense is that a lot of his work falls outside of the digital age of entertainment and access to information. But come on. You’re supposed to be the world’s best film critic.
We got trouble.

For those asking what you can do to help, please link to visiblechildren.tumblr.com wherever you see KONY 2012 posts. I do not doubt for a second that those involved in KONY 2012 have great intentions, nor do I doubt for a second that Joseph Kony is a very evil man. But despite this, I’m strongly opposed...
gorjira: ARGHGH can’t stop picking at my skin fuck. I need to tape up my fingers. I sound like a meth head. You probably don’t want to hear this but I have the exact same problem and have often thought about solutions (all impractical and in vain). It was the habit that replaced biting my nails in high school, only this one has made me far more self-conscious and has resulted in...
I can’t stop thinking about how two years ago I wasn’t even me at all.
I’ve accepted I am incapable of speaking my mind to most people yet I seem more than capable of writing it. I wish there was someway I could demonstrate to people that I don’t like parties and I don’t like group hang-outs, I don’t like talking and I don’t usually like conversations… but I still like people. A heck of a lot. I wish there was some way I could...
