Privileged people preaching nonviolence to oppressed people

i kinda said this in different words to my parents and they were appalled and confused.

I’m sorry that your parents didn’t get it. I know how tough that is, when someone you really care about isn’t willing to put in the mental effort to understand an issue that matters to you. 

they’re baby boomers, and their actions are ‘good’ (read as humanitarian) enough, so even though they are quite prejudiced in ways it’s not worth arguing with a brick wall. they’re almost 60, as long as they aren’t harming anyone or saying terrible things their convictions are effectively swept under the rug.
i could go on and on for days about how internet generations (i use the term neohuman/ity for brevity, though it sounds kinda sci-fi’ish) are different creatures than the ones who were alive and kicking beforehand. not to say some have adapted/evolved on the fly, but not most tbph.

"You can’t just lump things into two categories. Things aren’t that simple."

Donnie Darko | Donnie Darko (2001)

"Do it.
Get on the plane, get the train,
Walk 300 miles.
Get to her front door and tell her
“I know this is crazy
But I need you now.”
Our lives are too short to always be sensible,
Get the girl.
Distance makes no difference if your eyes light up when she laughs."

i’m really happy that you exist, even though we aren’t very good friends.

March 2011 to September 2014.

A lot of my ~tumblr fame~ on findingthinagain was generated from posting that first picture with the words “I’m making myself unstoppable” on it. The pictures on the left were taken in March 2011, age 18, my senior year of high school, right as I was reaching the peak of my worst physical and mental state yet. At that time, I weighed less than 100 pounds at 5’6”, I ran everyday in addition to soccer practice, I was eating less than half the calories I should have been to support such an active lifestyle, and I had essentially zero social life thanks to my extremely rigid diet and exercise. Additionally, I hadn’t had a period since December, my body temperature resided around 96F, and my resting heart rate was typically around 34. My hair was falling out in handfuls, I didn’t have any hobbies besides exercise, and yet I insisted that I was perfectly okay because I was an elite athlete.

The pictures on the right were taken today. I’m 21, graduating college next semester and getting ready to move on to grad school. I weigh ~120 pounds, not sure exactly because I don’t remember the last time I weighed myself. I get my period every month, my body temperature is normal, my resting heart rate is around 55. I play college soccer and I’m in great physical shape. I have no idea how many calories I eat per day, but I know it’s enough. I have wonderful friends that I spend time with almost everyday, with no second thought to how it might affect my eating or exercise. I draw and play music and read books and live life. I am a whole, functioning, happy person. That doesn’t mean I don’t still have my struggles, but they are no longer so overwhelming that they take over my identity.

It can get better.
