I’m trying hard to live by Cat Principles.

1- I am glorious above all things
2- Eat when hungry, sleep when sleepy, play when bored
3- Affection is given and received on my terms and only mine
4- Show displeasure clearly.
5- NO
6- Demand the things you want. If they aren’t given, demand them again, but louder this time.
7- If you are touched when you don’t want to be, say so. If they continue to touch you, make them bleed.

This was one of the most baffling things of my whole childhood.

OHMYGOD I THOUGHT I WAS THE ONLY ONE WHO REMEMBERS THIS 

darkdaysbrightnights:

I sometimes want to start a blog where I just talk about how upset my dad made me. Earlier this week, he criticized me for not liking vacations where I’m trapped on a boat for a week.

Ok not trying to derail but I FEEL THIS SO HARD. My dad gets seasick but he likes presenting himself as this great provider whose family never has to worry about money and can do these lavish things (and yes there are times we can afford this and yes hella lucky but like that money would have been much better saved as he lost his job within the month after we returned from the trip (he has since gotten another)). But because of this complex my dad has he decided “trip to Greece and then a cruise to the islands!” and like, cool in theory, but he apparently didn’t know that the day trips were extra soooo we didn’t get to go on most of them and also he has anxiety and so do my mom and 2/3 of the younger generation. So we were trapped on this big ass boat with no one we knew except each other and my dad was coping by getting drunk/disappearing and we were all at the awkward ages where you’re too old for activity A but too young for activity B and there was nothing age appropriate to do and we were STUCK ON THE DAMN BOAT and then it hit rough water and the guy who had control of the loudspeakers thought he was SO FUCKING FUNNY so he played the fucking Titanic song ON REPEAT and I had to explain to my sisters that no, we probably weren’t going to die because they were panicking and where were my fucking parents? IN A GODDAMN BAR ON THE GODDAMN BOAT AND WE DIDN’T KNOW WHAT BAR AND NONE OF US HAD INTERNATIONAL SERVICE ON OUR PHONES SO WE COULD LITERALLY NEVER FIND EACH OTHER ALSO WE COULDN’T FLUSH TOILET PAPER DOWN THE TOILET.

FUCK CRUISES. FUCK THEM SO HARD. BIGASS FANCY EXPENSIVE FLOATING PRISONS.

Train of thought read mores 8/20, pt.1

The person I reblogged this from is hella rad

(Source: unicorn-chicken)

I am not Mike Brown. I am white. I am middle class. I am female. I am small. I am not considered a threat. When police see me they see someone who looks like them. They see their mothers, their daughters, their sisters, themselves. I am not at risk of being shot by police for existing while black. I am not at risk of being shot while unarmed. I am not at risk of being shot while armed with nothing more than a BB gun. I am not at risk of being shot for reaching for my wallet. I am privileged.
But I am outraged. And if you aren’t outraged, then you aren’t paying attention. This is America in 2014. This is our reality. It’s so easy to get jaded and to ignore these atrocities, to act like this doesn’t affect us. It’s so easy to get apathetic. In the past it was the youth who protested. Where is the rage of the youth? Where is our rage?
Like I said, I am not Mike Brown. But I am outraged.

Tonight in Ferguson, Mo. Even CNN is calling out police brutality.

We are watching history unfold. Do not stand down. Spread the word.

No justice, no peace.

My favorite quote from this book.

For people interested, this is from Identical by Ellen Hopkins. She has a ton of older YA novels all written in a similar style of free verse that explore really interesting subjects with a LOT of well- developed female characters. 
TWs for this book: abuse, rape, childhood sexual abuse, incest, eating disorders, pedophilia, creepy teacher, menstruation, neglect, Holocaust mention, death, and drugs/alcohol (more on alcohol)
TWs for her other books: LITERALLY EVERYTHING. SERIOUSLY. THESE BOOKS NEED TO BE PREPARED FOR. IF YOU READ THEM GIVE YOURSELF A PEP TALK. The most prevalent are drugs/alcohol, suicide, rape (so much rape), victim blaming, abortion, OH DID I MENTION DRUGS? CAUSE THERE’S A TRILOGY WHERE THE UNITING CHARACTER IS AN ADDICT, mental illness, and those are just the ones I remember off the top of my head.
