1. Rather than listening to the voice in your head that is screaming “I hate this; I don’t want to do this” think about why it is a GOOD thing to do.

2. Instead of trying to pretend that you don’t feel this way, accept that you are feeling very blah and negative.

3. Don’t think about results and how well you think you’ll do, as this could raise your feelings of anxiety and fear, just think about “right now” and the first thing you can do.

4. Accept that life is tough, and is full of things that suck – but recognise that doing hard stuff is better in the end. You’ll likely have more choices and freedom, if you do.

5. Just do a little bit for now – then give yourself a proper break – then go back and do some more – and soon you’ll find you’re in the flow.

6. Don’t allow your mind to wander and think of other things. Stay focused for that short time – and then stop, and have fun.

7. Future You is going to be so happy that Present You did the thing, so do the thing because you’re giving Future You a gift.

Man sends over 2,000 potatoes to Wisconsin politician who refuses to hold a town hall

What would you do with 2,000 potatoes? Make some French fries? A mammoth batch of buttery mashed potatoes? Homemade potato chips? Perhaps a large cheesy gratin?

Sen. Ron Johnson better start thinking. On Friday, a whopping 1,920 potatoes were en route to the Wisconsin Republican’s office to join the ones that had already arrived earlier in the week. Read more. (4/7/17, 3:58 PM)


I love that Max Tempkin, creator of the phenomenally successful Cards Against Humanity, is being described in this story as “Man”.

via http://ift.tt/2pLSvxZ:Chef turns down interview for Ivanka Trump site with strongly worded response:


Executive chef Angela Dimayuga of Mission Chinese Food is the latest to voice her feelings of distaste for the Trumps and their rhetoric, in epic fashion.

On her Instagram account, Dimayuga published a message sent by a freelance reporter from IvankaTrump.com, requesting an interview with the chef.

In it, the writer praised Dimayuga’s accomplishments, and asked if she would be willing to do an interview for the site. The reporter wrote that the intent was to spotlight Dimayuga’s work “as a strong female entrepreneur” stating that IvankaTrump.com is a “non-political platform of empowerment for modern working women.

Below is her response in its entirety:

“Hi Adi,

Thank you for thinking of me. I’m glad you are a fan of my work so much that you want to provide more visibility for my career to inspire “other working women.” However, I’m for women who actually empower other women.

I don’t believe that IvankaTrump.com is truly “a non-political platform of empowerment for [women]”. So long as the name Trump is involved, it is political and frankly, an option for the IvankaTrump.com business to make a profit.

I don’t see anything empowering about defunding Planned Parenthood, barring asylum from women refugees, rolling back safeguards for equal pay, and treating POC/LGBT and the communities that support these groups like second class citizens.

 As a queer person of color and daughter of immigrant parents I am not interested in being profiled as an aspirational figure for those that support a brand and a President that slyly disparages female empowerment. Sharing my story with a brand and family that silences our same voices is futile.

Thank you for the consideration.”

it was super hard for me to figure out I liked girls because I always thought my feelings were just like… intense friendship

like when I was 15 me and my best friend made out because we wanted to know what it’s like and I was super attracted to her and all I could think was ‘wow, what a beautiful, profound friendship’

“A vampire hunter?” Nathan demanded, sitting up to look down incredulously at him. “You had sex, with a vampire hunter?!”

Vlad rolled his eyes with a sigh. “Yes.”

“…a vampire hunter.”

“Please, keep repeating it. That’ll make it sound better.”

“How old were you?”

Vlad shrugged, rolling onto his back and stretching out his back as he yawned. “Hundred and something. And it wasn’t just any vampire hunter.” He smirked. “It was Helsing.” 

There was a pause, and then. “Helsing, as in Van bloody renowned vampire killer Helsing?”

“Hmm.” Vlad hummed, a content little sound in the back of his throat. “He was hunting my grandfather…this was back in the old country of course, before we had to leave…anyway, grandad wasn’t there and my father was off” he waved a hand vaguely “leering through balcony windows probably. So it’s just me and some of the drones, fucking around in the crypts. Not literally,” he adds, seeing the look on Nathan’s face. “Took a few extra screams for me to realize it wasn’t just grandfather returning. He was an impressive tracker,” the vampire conceded, “followed me all the way to the library. Even fired a crossbow at me.”

“What happened?”

“He missed.”

“Bullshit,” Nathan countered, “One-shot-Van-Helsing never missed.”

Vlad’s smile lifted crookedly, running a tongue thoughtfully over a length of fang. “First time for everything I suppose.”

This sounds wonderful. I have an excited.

It went exactly like this:

Hey kids, did you know that when you’re an adult, you can have nothing but a piece of chocolate cheesecake for supper? It’s not a good idea, but you can do it if you want to.

Sometimes I eat junk food all day and I start craving vegetables and that’s when I know I’m really an Adult now

Why are all queer events on at like 10 at night? Some of us queers can’t stay out that late? Can’t we have a gay afternoon tea? Lesbian lunch? Bisexual breakfast?

#this is a super important point though too stop having queer events be only late and at bars#you’re excluding underage queer ppl and sober queer ppl and it’s really shitty

Kill the idea that LGBT+ stuff is inherently rated R and therefore must only occur in the dead of night. 

Asexual elevenses. Transgender teatime. Help me out here. Questioning coffee date.

Pansexual picnics.

What about bisexual second breakfast?

Gender fluid frozen yogurt date

Agendef afternoon snack

@ movie musicals: please just cast actors who are also singers. or if you’re not going to do that at least just go the les mis (2012) route and exploit the less than perfect singing for Emotional Authenticity rather than autotuning the shit out of every other note. or at least if you’re going to autotune it get someone who can actually do it well and doesn’t treat the software like they’ve always wanted to be a producer for t-pain

i was thinking about the weirdest phone calls i got when i still worked at the public library and i remembered this one phone call. it was probably less than 20 seconds long, but it still makes me laugh.

anyways, this woman called and without even saying hello after i said the usual “public library, how can i help you?” spiel, she said, “i have a very important question: when you shelve books, do you push them all to the front of the shelf or all the way back?”

it took me a second to process the question and then i answered that, at the library, we always shelve them so that they are even with the front edge so they’re easier to grab and see. she was obviously delighted by this answer and then, as if an afterthought, she asked, “okay, what about you? what do you do at home with your books?” i said i did the same thing. she hummed in obvious agreement and then just like that she said “thank you!” and hung up.

i never heard from her again. i hope she won whatever argument she was having.

Alright so listen up girls and boys with bleeding nether regions:

Buy Always Infinity with Flexfoam. Buy nothing else. Buy Always Infinite with Flexfoam.

This sexy beast. There’s a bunch of versions. But so long as it says Infinity and Flexfoam, fucking GET IT.

So I’ve always been a fan of Always pads. Can’t stand tampons because of all the horror stories and in general, they’re uncomfortable. Always just seems to be the brand that’s always there so we always got it.

Every since Always released their Infinity brand, we’ve literally hated everything else. Even the regular versions of Always. Infinity is the way to go. It is the ONLY way to go.

Infinity is like the only way we can keep our damn bedsheets and clothes bloodless. The first night I got my period I woke up with my boxers just soaked. Completely soaked. Blood. Everywhere.

So I just pop into the bathroom and thus far we’ve only got regular Always pads. Put one on. It’s about as miserable as you’d expect. The pad shifts as you sit and move and when you change pads you’re probably changing underwear too because of the blood just seeping out the sides and getting everywhere.

But then we have Always Infinity. With the Flexfoam. You know that bullshit on the side of the box brands spew where they’re like THIS SUPER INGENIOUS INVENTION WITH A FANCY NAME IS GOING TO GIVE YOU PRISTINE CLEANLINESS AND ULTIMATE PROTECTION AND THATS WHY WE USE FLEXFOAM.

They’re not fucking kidding guys. This isn’t a fucking game. These pads are relentless. No blood gets by. You’d probably have to unhygenically use one pad 24 hours+ before the blood will actually leave the pad and get anywhere.

In addition to that? It’s invisible.

Okay look, guys. I’m trans. I’m a transman. I’m a fucking dude. I don’t suffer from dysphoria but nothing annoys and irritates me more than knowing I am wearing a fucking diaper because I can feel it everytime I move and stand and sit down.

Not these bitches. No fucking way. They’re thin, they’re super big and they’re completely inmovable. I don’t have to keep grabbing at my crotch or my ass to readjust the pad lest blood be splashing everywhere. It stays in one fucking place and it doesn’t leave until you rip it out yourself.


Rebloggin’ by request of the moum

I can say the same. These things are the shit and its beautiful. Whoever figured it out how to make them I’d very much like to thank, and I’m pretty sure my underwear would too.

A long time ago I read that Always pads make ur hingy itch but this person seems to really like them so I guess that problem was fixed. The thing i read was at least a year ago, probably more.

HOLY SHIT YOU GUYS when I was in Toronto (one night in a nice hotel downtown and of course I got my fucking period) and the mini mart had these on sale so I took the risk and THESE ARE INCREDIBLE

THIN! No leaks! No blood down the ass crack! FLEX FOAM FOR LIFE!!

Always Infinity and Always Radiant are the same exact product. Both have the flex foam but Radiant just has a fragrance to it + more colorful packaging. When one is on sale, the other one generally isn’t so buy the one on sale! Also, once you finish, the boxes can have coupons on the inside so use those on your next purchase!

You had me at no blood down the ass crack.

I can confirm how lovely these are and i refuse to use anything else over these

These are incredible. I HATE pads. Hate them. I only started using them because endo made it impossible for me to use tampons. My periods were miserable when I had to switch.

Then I found flexfoam. My periods have completely changed. I can barely tell it’s there. No more diaper feeling. No more blood escaping. And seriously, my periods get really heavy at points and the foam absorbs it all.


👆🏾Literally Will Forget You’re r On Your Period They Are Super Comfy And Shit

I so second this for all the people who have periods

Have you ever seen brown eyes in the sun? You don’t always notice it at first but you’ll see that ‘brown’ no longer describes them. They melt into golden rays, circling an eclipse. There’s nothing boring about brown eyes, not even when the later hours encroach; they just turn into a sunset of their own.

‘staring into the camera like you’re on the office’ is such an interesting cultural phenomenon because it points to one of my very favorite things in pop culture, which is the use of commonly known fictional situations to indicate an emotion or context that is extremely specific and can’t necessarily be communicated with language alone.

why do characters on the office look into the camera?  on the office, the characters are being filmed as part of a documentary; they understand they are being filmed and can acknowledge that fourth wall and those theoretical future viewers.  but because the office is a comedy, that fourth wall acknowledgement is not about explaining motivations or gaining approval for an action, but about sharing an agreement with a group of people who are not actually there.  

characters on the office look into the camera when something ridiculous is happening that no one in the room thinks is ridiculous but the person looking at the camera, were they to say ‘this is so ridiculous’ to the people in the room, their comrades in fiction, they would get serious pushback or anger; to those characters the situation is serious.  the character looking into the camera is a more objective viewer, like the audience, and by looking at us they’re putting themselves on our objective team.  and in the future when this ‘documentary’ would air, they would be vindicated as the person who understood that the situation was ridiculous.

so in real life, when we talk about ‘looking into the camera like we’re on the office’, this very specific emotion is what we’re referring to: that we’re in a situation that any objective viewer would find inherently ridiculous, and are seeking acknowledgement from an invisible but much larger group that would agree with us, even though nobody in the situation would do so.  we’re putting ourselves in an outsider position, a less emotional position, and inherently a more powerful position, because we’re not vulnerable to being laughed at like all the ridiculous people we’re among.  we’re among them, but we’re not with them, and the millions of people watching us on theoretical tv would be on our team, not theirs.  that’s such a specific idea and concept, and one that’s really hard to communicate in pure language.  but we can say ‘looking into the camera like we’re on the office’ and it’s much easier to communicate what we mean.

for me that’s what pop culture is for, and why it’s so important that it’s pop culture.  maybe it feels more special if it’s only you and a grape who know that something exists, but the more people consume something, the more its situations and reactions become common knowledge, a sort of communal well from which we can draw to articulate real life problems.  and ultimately, the easier it is for us to communicate and understand each other.
