My name is Mars, and my favorite outdoor activity is going back inside.

Inspired by a conversation with Blondell-gazette, I did this thing.

What can I say, I’m a color geek

reasons i want to look GOOD 

  • for myself
  • for myself
  • to plant the seed of envy in other bitch’s hearts
  • for myself

12:31pm | twenty first may | learning to love yourself | most days i stay inside, i take care of my plants, i read books and take far too many baths. always too afraid to be seen and having a fear that people will see me the way i see myself. eye contact makes me timid, conversations make me stutter, hearing voices around me automatically makes me feel i’m being judged, i get dizzy and scared and i always run home and tell myself i did good today, at least i tried. i was curious as to what people think of me, so i asked a few people i adore, these are a few special words that i treasure: i love the sweet little lisp you have that i notice when you talk and sing, you are enchanting and there is something so pure about you, i adore you, i could write poetry and love letters to every part of you, you have this childlike smile and a glow in your eyes, i love your lips and your small hands. these kind words i written beside my bed, i awake each day and read them. people do not see me the way i see myself and i’m starting to learn this, i’m learning to love myself. this has helped me an awful lot, and it made me realise there are probably a lot of you that are struggling with self love or know of someone that is struggling with self love, perhaps today you too could write a letter of the things you love to a special friend, let them know that they are loved, your words go a long way and i think we forget the power in them, use them wisely, all my love, unknown.

Dad’s gotten 1000% better talking about periods since we started using Shark Week euphemisms:

"Ah, it’s Shark Week?" = "Ah, you started your period?"

"Harpoons on deck?" = "Do you have enough pads/tampons/etc?"

"Chum stocks are holding?" = "Do you need chocolate/midol?"

"Supplies are low cap’n" = "Yes, please."

"What kind (of shark) is it?" = "How do you feel?"

  • "It’s a Nurse Shark" = "I’m fine/not bad"
  • "GREAT WHITE OFF THE STARBOARD BOW" = "FUCKING OW"

"Sunny, hot, rich, and beautiful," is how makeup artist Pat McGrath described the typical Sicilian look. That all translated to luminous skin, golden lids, and flushed cheeks.

SeaWorld could be in trouble because of “Granny,” the world’s oldest known living orca. The 103-year-old whale (also known as J2) was recently spotted off Canada’s western coast with her pod — her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. But while the Granny sighting is thrilling for us, it’s problematic for SeaWorld.
First of all, SeaWorld has claimed that “no one knows for sure how long killer whales live,” when simple figures or even living and thriving examples — like Granny — can give us a pretty good idea. The Whale and Dolphin Conservation project estimates that whales born in captivity only live to 4.5 years old, on average; many of SeaWorld’s orcas die before they reach their 20s. Perhaps because of their reduced lifespans, the whales are forced to breed continuously and at perilously young ages, which could also diminish their overall health.
Another key aspect of an orca’s life — which is missing in captivity — is the ability to swim up to 100 miles per day. When Granny was spotted earlier this week, she had just finished an 800-mile trek from northern California along with her pod. According to animal welfare advocates, long-distance swimming is integral to orcas’ psychological health and well-being; SeaWorld, however, has gone on record claiming that orcas do not need to swim hundreds of miles regularly, ostensibly to defend the parks’ cruel practice of keeping massive, powerful orcas confined to cramped tanks.
Since Granny was first spotted (as early as the 1930s), she’s believed to have mothered two calves, who in turn have had calves of their own. (One of her grandchildren, Canuck, reportedly died at the age of 4 after being captured and held at SeaWorld). As her pod has grown, Granny has kept up with them — without being separated through human intervention — and traveled astonishing distances with her pod annually. Orcas at SeaWorld are routinely separated from their pods, which has been known to cause huge mental and emotional strain and can prevent calves from developing normally.
Granny doesn’t simply represent an impressive feat of nature; she embodies what’s wrong with SeaWorld by being a living example of what’s right in the wild. While it’s true that most wild orcas don’t live as long as Granny has, their lifespans are still dramatically longer than those of SeaWorld’s whales (the NOAA estimates that wild female orcas, like Granny, live an average of 50 to 60 years). Their lives are also filled with much more swimming, exploration, variety and bonding with family — in other words, their lives are likely filled with much more joy.
SeaWorld and marine parks profit off keeping orcas and other marine animals in captivity — despite evidence that captivity not only induces unnatural behaviors in whales, but also endangers trainers. Join us in pledging never to visit SeaWorld or other marine parks until they empty their orca tanks.

Fuck SeaWorld. They will never get a dime of money from me as long as I live.
