I have this pallet and it is the shit.
this post is trash
and here’s to the ones like ARE like that.
here’s to every girl who need a little validation and here’s to the ones that don’t.
here’s to lonely girls sounded by people and lonely girls all alone.
here’s to every girl who thinks she’s imperfect and to the ones who have learned it doesn’t actually matter.
here’s to who practice for hours in heels just to make themselves feel powerful and here’s to girls who would rather be comfy.
here’s to girls.
here’s to everyone tonight who can find the empathy to understand that though we may look, act, and live differently, deep down we’re all just doing our best.

You can tell a lot about someone by the type of music they listen to. Hit shuffle on your media player and write down the first 20 songs. Rules: No skipping! Then pass this on to 10 people.

And I’m not gonna tag anyone because she already tagged everyone I was gonna, so my ears are waiting. Carry on being rad y’all!
Probably one of the best costumes from the con that I’ve seen.
BREAKING: DISNEYLAND NO LONGER HAPPIEST PLACE ON EARTH
The news: A new scientific study from Princeton researchers Martin Gilens and Benjamin I. Page has finally put some science behind the recently popular argument that the United States isn’t a democracy any more. And they’ve found that in fact, America is basically an oligarchy.
An oligarchy is a system where power is effectively wielded by a small number of individuals defined by their status called oligarchs. Members of the oligarchy are the rich, the well connected and the politically powerful, as well as particularly well placed individuals in institutions like banking and finance or the military.
For their study, Gilens and Page compiled data from roughly 1,800 different policy initiatives in the years between 1981 and 2002. They then compared those policy changes with the expressed opinion of the United State public. Comparing the preferences of the average American at the 50th percentile of income to what those Americans at the 90th percentile preferred, as well as the opinions of major lobbying or business groups, the researchers found out that the government followed the directives set forth by the latter two much more often.
It’s beyond alarming. As Gilens and Page write, “the preferences of the average American appear to have only a minuscule, near-zero, statistically non-significant impact upon public policy.” In other words, their statistics say your opinion literally does not matter.
That might explain why mandatory background checks on gun sales supported by 83% to 91% of Americans aren’t in place, or why Congress has taken no action on greenhouse gas emissions even when such legislation is supported by the vast majority of citizens.
This problem has been steadily escalating for four decades. While there are some limitations to their data set, economists Thomas Piketty and Emmanuel Saez constructed income statistics based on IRS data that go back to 1913. They found that the gap between the ultra-wealthy and the rest of us is much bigger than you would think…
So, just on ao3 alone, I have 49 stories bookmarked under the tag “To Podfic” which doesn’t include my current year spreadsheet of about 15 or so additional podfics I want to do (why is motivation and time and why is my house never quiet). Most of those are either Teen Wolf or Marvel or Bandom. Actually, I have like 3 of yours I’m either going to record or in progress because HOW AMAZING ARE YOU? SO AMAZING.
And out of those fics that I want to podfic, a lot of those are blanket permission authors so the only thing standing between me and recording them is time.
So, let’s rec a couple of these recs, because why not and these have squeeful notes telling myself to either get permission or just record already Patty. :)
But yeah, I podfic because I love a story and I want people to hear just how much I loved it. I just don’t have enough hours in the day. :)
