the one thing that has stuck with me every day since my English teacher told me it in middle school is:
"When referring to someone, always say who they are before anything else about them, because being a person always comes first"
Instead of saying “the mentally ill man,” say “the man with a mental illness”
Putting someone’s characteristics (especially negative ones) before them is dehumanizing and rude. Don’t do it.
Do you ever get like super vulnerable late at night that you just want to spill your heart out and say how you feel because you’ve been holding it in for so long and you just need some ventilation and there’s just something about two in the morning that makes me lose my filter and say the things I would never have the guts to say when the sun is up.
thinking about my music taste 5 years ago and my music taste now, i’ve come a long way and i’m fucking proud of myself
Amongst the detailed look at the inception of Sherlock as a television series, the Royal Television Society event Sherlock: Anatomy of a Hit on Tuesday 4 March 2014 gave attendees the chance to hear the show’s creators reveal their favourite scenes from all three series, with the sequences…
Go for the natural look. Obviously, clear and even skin is a must, but don’t use foundation. Big eyes are super important, but obviously no eyeshadow, eyeliner or mascara. Frostbitten cheeks, but no blush. And of course, perfectly kissable red lips but DO NOT use lipstick. It’s also important to look sexy, but not sexy enough to get looks from other guys ‘cause that makes you a whore. And if you do happen to be sexy enough to get raped? Well, obviously that’s your fault. Because obviously, guys deserves a piece of cake and you should be that for them. But just not too sexy! Short girls are in high demand, and the perfect height is when you have to go on tip-toes to kiss your man. Not any shorter than that, though. That’s obviously weird. You can’t be taller than any guys. But of course, long legs are a must.
Speaking of legs, shave them. For the love of God, shave! And your armpits, and your arm hair. What’s that about? Guys like the natural look, but girl, not THAT natural. It’s also important to wax down there, although some guys thinks that’s a bit creepy and prude, but having any hair down there is really gross for a girl.
Thin, but curves are a must. Big tits, but you shouldn’t have them out ‘cause that makes you a skank. Guys love it when girls keep their hair natural, so just wash it every two days, use hair treatments once or twice a week and styling using straightening irons and curling irons and three to four products every morning should give you those cute, natural waves that guys love.
Now the important stuff. Appearance out of the way, lets go on to personality. Be entertaining and spontaneous, but not too loud. Guys love intelligent girls, but not smarter than him. Be interesting in cars and outdoor sports, but not too much ‘cause that’s lesbian, am I right? Ooze confidence wherever you go, but don’t be vain or actually love yourself because there is nothing worse than a girl who knows she’s hot. When it comes to sex, you should definitely have all the basics down. Missionary, cowgirl, doggy, reverse, sixty-nine, the butterfly position, broking horse, niagra falls, flaming dragon, happy scissors, paddle log, double decker, fire cracker and be down for anal, threesomes (with another girl, of course.) but DON’T. BE. A SLUT. You should know these positions and be mindblowingly great at sexing him in them, but not through practice you dirty whore.
Be beautiful, but don’t know it. Be hells, but don’t shave. Be confident, but not vain. Be in intelligent, but not opinionated. And most of all, be yourself.❞

No matter which way you’re looking the sonic is always pointed at you…
So earlier I came up with this really great idea
And this kind of fits in with that
So I was thinking for some show (probably either Doctor Who or Supernatural), what if throughout an entire episode, or maybe a season, there was this entity that was continually watching the characters every move.
It watches them all the time.
It’s always right behind them, looking over their shoulder.
At one point, they start to acknowledge this creatures existence. Perhaps they catch glimpses of it. The weird thing is, it know everything about them.
It is at this point in time that the monster starts causing trouble. The characters lives are at risk, and you are scared.
In the end, the Doctor or Dean (or someone) finds a way to make it visible. They find a way to get rid of it.
Maybe the Doctor uses his sonic screwdriver. Maybe Dean shots it with his gun. Either way, they do so by looking directly at the camera. Looking at you.
Aiming at you.
You are the monster.
The screen goes black.
OH MY FUCKING GODDDDD
