"What’s the matter? Never taken a shortcut before?"
•go to the bathroom to escape
•feel very uncomfortable without a phone or some other crutch
•dwell on a small awkward for much longer than necessary
•never go to any social event without a person that makes you feel comfortable
•follow said person way too much
•worry about the person beginning to find you obnoxious
•faking an illness to get out of a social event
I’ve always been told being on my phone is the height of rudeness, so I tend to, instead fold my arms in the defensive position and this has led to times when people have mistaken me for being mean-spirited, aloof and cold. Of course I would only hear that they think that after the event happened.

Magical Paths Begging To Be Walked
Roads and paths pervade our literature, poetry, artwork, linguistic expressions and music. Even photographers can’t keep their eyes (and lenses) off of a beautiful road or path, which is why we collected this list of 28 amazing photos of paths.
Paths like these have a powerful grip on the human imagination – they can bring adventure, promise and change or solitude, peace and calm. There’s nothing like a walk down a beautiful path to clear your head – or to fill it with ideas!
I’ll leave you with an excellent quote from J. R. R. Tolkien’s works while you enjoy these images; “It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off to.“

Re-make of this post.
End mental health stigma.
That last one hit hard.
This is beautiful to me. I’m ADD, OCD, and have Depression and it is so easy to let people make me think that I make up the way I feel and that I’m trying to not be okay.
It’s funny how conservatives are always going on about the “gay agenda,” when it’s the straight people that have an agenda. Seriously. The straight agenda starts brainwashing kids from birth, putting boy-babies in blue clothes and girl-babies in pink clothes, deciding which toys they get to play with and which school subjects they “ought” to be good at, and backing that up with millions of dollars worth of advertising as the children grow up, reinforced by constant brainwashing by their own families.
Not to mention unfair and uneven media representation, showing unrealistically uniform heterosexual casts and hardly any homosexual/bisexual/trans/queer/ace/pan protagonists, discouraging young adults from exploring their queerness because it clearly isn’t the done thing. In fact, it’s a horrible sin, because most religious leaders from multiple religions are anti-queer, and are happy to fill the airwaves with queerphobic hate. The same thing goes for most political leaders and “pillars” of the community.
The straight agenda makes it acceptable for someone to joke about another person’s baby daughter by saying: “Oh, she’s a pretty one! You’re gonna have to fight the boys off with a stick once she’s in her teens!” As if that’s okay and not sexualizing a child before it can even talk, but if that same girl becomes an adult and tries coming out as a bisexual at the age of eighteen, she’s way too young to understand her own sexuality and must have been “corrupted” or “misled”.
A twelve-year-old boy and a girl are called “cute” when they hold hands, but if two boys do the same, they’re told they’re being “too gay”. A man who forces his attentions on a woman is condemned less than a gay man who only wants to marry his loving, committed life-partner. In fact, the assaulter is often lauded for being “manly” and is considered to be following his “natural” heterosexual urges, whereas the gay couple is considered “freakish” and “undermining moral and cultural values”.
In many cities, a lesbian couple can’t kiss on the street without being insulted, harassed or treated as though their relationship is pornographic entertainment for the titillation of straight men, but the same straight men can verbally or physically abuse their wives in public without anyone saying a word.
In many schools, a boy can bully and beat another boy without teachers speaking out against his bullying, but a boy can’t take another boy to the prom without teachers telling him it’s not allowed.
A heterosexual rape scene with a man raping a woman sparks less controversy among moviegoing audiences than a consensual homosexual kiss between men. Because obviously, the objectification and brutalization of women is more normal and tolerable than “twisted fags” daring to kiss each other consensually.
A straight male mass-shooter who uses the excuse of having been turned down by women as a reason to kill other people is given more sympathetic media coverage than an innocent trans woman who is the victim of a violent hate crime.
And it’s the gay agenda that’s doing damage to society? Really? Who exactly has the agenda, here? The straight agenda does its best to convince queer people that they’re unnatural, sinful, shameful, broken, dangerous, doomed or just downright undeserving of life, let alone basic rights. The straight agenda has most major media organizations, religious establishments and politicians backing them up and helping them spread their message.
And what does the so-called “gay agenda” have? People that want to get married? Wow. That’s so damaging to society.
I’m looking forward to learning about Rebecca Ferguson’s character in MI5 but I swear to god if they only added her because Jane wasn’t shippable with one of the boys, I will be pissed off.
It sucks though that we can’t have both. Jane and Rebecca. Two girls on the same team, interacting, being awesome.

Coraline is a masterfully made film, an amazing piece of art that i would never ever ever show to a child oh my god are you kidding me
Nothing wrong with a good dose of sheer terror at a young age
"It was a story, I learned when people began to read it, that children experienced as an adventure, but which gave adults nightmares. It’s the strangest book I’ve written"
-Neil Gaiman on Coraline
