Now Playing Tracks

1) Learn to put on your bracelets and zip up your dresses by yourself. There will be times when you will be alone.
2) Get on a long plane ride. Look out the window. Understand the immensity of our world. Understand your insignificance. Understand your absolute importance.
3) Press the send button. If you don’t say it now, you never will.
4) Do not sneer at happiness or roll your eyes at sadness. Be aware that apathy is not healthy.
5) You are more than the amount of people who want to have sex with you.
6) That pit in your stomach when he doesn’t text you back, it shouldn’t be there. No one should be able to control you like that.
7) Shopping is cathartic. Buy the shoes and deal with one-ply toilet paper for a while.
8) It will get better, but it will never be perfect. Learn to live through the small moments of happiness. When they disappear, remember they will resurface.
9) I promise that cookie will not change anything (except that it will make you smile).
10) Please, please, take care of yourself. You are everything to somebody. You are everything to your self. That alone is enough.

Super important video about the US prison system.

This is absolutely insane.

PLEASE STOP SCROLLING

This video will only take a couple minutes of your time, and the only thing I’d like to add is that you consider the American judicial system itself. I don’t mean the usual “follow the money” (but do that, too); Look at who is arrested. Look how many are convicted. Look at how they are convicted, and for what. Ever checked out what can count as a felony? Google that shit.

In addition to doing nothing towards the rehabilitation of criminals, we send a ton of innocent people into what becomes a vicious cycle of injustice, inefficiency, and inhumane cruelty. The system as it stands now helps no one and hurts society as a whole. If you don’t already know about the business of the prison industry, I urge you to educate yourself.

This video is a terrific starting point.
