I got my wristbands from ASD visual aids today jgjsksldjjskakshhdkhd. It’s this wristband where on one side it says ‘happy to talk’ on a green background and if you flip it over on your wrist (which you can do without taking it off) on the other side it says ‘please leave me alone’ on a red background. And they’re designed for people with ASDs to let other people know if they’re okay to communicate/be approached without having to go through the anxiety of telling them so. I’m hoping this will come in handy when I go back to uni/I’m back with my friends again; not much chance of my family taking much notice but YH

They cost around £5 BUT with shipping mine came to just under £10 (which is weird because they ship from the UK and I am in the UK but it’s whatever) and you get three in a pack. I got the adult size which is kinda big (goes about a third of the way down my arm) and is going to take some getting used but I have huge hands and tiny wrists so if I’d gotten the child size I wouldn’t have got it over my hand. They’re made out of silicone which is a weird texture but one I can personally get used to.

I got them from here. I know they ship from the UK, and that they ship internationally, but I’m not sure of the cost for international shipping.

Realistic House Plant Cupcake by Alana Jones-Mann

Artist on Tumblr | Facebook

Inspired by a gardening project, Brooklyn-based baker Alana Jones-Mann decided to make cupcakes that look like common miniature cacti. Using frosting, green food coloring and of course, baking talent, Alana successfully made a bunch of cacti cupcake cuteness and even planted them on soil (crushed graham crackers). These realistic cacti cupcake are made with such impressive details that some of them even appear sharp to the touch. If you like those edible cacti and want to make your own, head on over to Alana Jones-Mann’s blog and find the step-by-step tutorial.

omfg

for a guy who can really completely annihilate a whole bag of candy at one sitting I have a pretty low threshold for cupcakes - like, I’ll eat one, which is weird for me, I don’t eat one of anything generally - but CHECK OUT THESE WICKED-ASS CUPCAKES

Then there’s that one rose that showed up to a succulents-and-cacti party and is trying to play it cool.

(“It’s okay, you got this, man.  Just talk about thorns and stuff.”)

quiet reminder for myself and anyone else who needs it

  • you’re alive
  • you’re okay
  • you have people who care about you
  • you can do this
  • it’s okay to be scared and overwhelmed, just don’t let it consume you
  • you’re okay
  • you can do this
  • today might not be a good day, but you’re alive and that’s okay
  • it’s okay
  • you’re okay
  • deep breaths
  • you’re okay

Quote
"I asked my ex, now good friend, if she would ever have an open relationship and she said, “No, I don’t think I could do that” then after a pause and a smile, “but what about love affair friendships?” She went on to describe an impenetrable fortress of female friendship, her own group of best mates who’d known each other since school and had supported and loved each other through almost all of their lifetimes. They sounded far more bonded to, and in love with one another, than their respective husbands. It struck me that we don’t have the language to reflect the diversity and breadth of connections we experience. Why is sex the thing we tend to define a relationship by, when in fact it can be simple casual fun without a deep emotional transaction? Why do we say “just friends” when, for some of us, a friendship goes deeper? Can we define a new currency of commitment that celebrates and values this? Instead of having multiple confusing interpretations of the same word, could we have different words? What if we viewed our relationships as a pyramid structure with our primary partner at the top and a host of lovers, friends, spiritual soul mates, colleagues, and acquaintances beneath that?"

Force kids in school to read crappy, overrated books that are “the best books ever written” solely because they’re “classics” and then call those kids idiots because those aren’t the kind of books they like to read and sit back and wonder why we have a nation full of multiple generations worth of people who willfully and proudly refuse to read.

stop saying “his or her”

use “their”

piss off prescriptivists
acknowledge nonbinary identities
make your sentences less clunky
advocate for common usage which is what leads to grammatical acceptance

instead of “grammar nazi” i like to use “word police” because

  1. it’s less offensive but

how many times do doctors need to confirm that lack of sleep is physically and emotionally harming high school students because of how early they have to be up before someone will give enough of a shit about these kids’ health to actually change something

oh wow I can’t wait to watch this half-hour long video of Alex Day mansplaining “his side of the story.” wow the poor man lost friends over this? awww poor wittle baby. he’s not THAT bad. after all, as he says in the video “in most cases” his sexual contact with women felt “pretty reciprocal.” well, at least in most cases! what a great standup guy. and, as he tells us “it’s not like I raped her.” so brave. let me shed a single mantear for his sad manpain.
