Huge shout out to all y’all folks with yo-yoing mental health, who are petrified that they’re draining their partner’s energy and waiting for the day they get their arses dumped cause they can’t find happiness in even the most obvious places.

Very buzzy post-interview, but I think it went okay! ^_^
So excited, I really hope I get in…
Now to see some art at Melbourne Now!
Guy drinking a six pack of VB tinnies at 8:45am on the train, playing a selection of golden oldies on his Nokia really loudly, which is sitting in the top pocket of his jacket.
He has a home job AC/DC hand tattoo.
Feeling pretty chill on the way to my uni interview.
The abusive man’s problem with anger is almost the opposite of what is commonly believed. The reality is:
Your abusive partner doesn’t have a problem with HIS anger; he has a problem with YOUR anger.
One of the basic human rights he takes away from you is the right to be angry with him. No matter how badly he treats you, he believes that your voice shouldn’t rise and your blood shouldn’t boil. The privilege of rage is reserved for him alone. When your anger does jump out of you —as will happen to any abused woman from time to time —he is likely to try to jam it back down your throat as quickly as he can. Then he uses your anger against you to prove what an irrational person you are. Abuse can make you feel straightjacketed. You may develop physical or emotional reactions to swallowing your anger, such as depression, nightmares, emotional numbing, or eating and sleeping problems, which your partner may use as an excuse to belittle you further or make you feel crazy.

Reminder to tea drinking Australians that sadly unilever have purchased formally ethical tea company T2. This means the products are no longer fair trade and when you spend your money at T2 you are not supporting an ethical company.
omg unilever own lipton too? GDI.
God damn it
Cyberpunk 1990 by Steve Pyke : Part I
Steve Pyke MBE (b. 1957) is a British photographer living in New York City. From 1981 to 1984, he worked for diverse publications including The Face and NME. Pyke has been a staff photographer at The New Yorker since 2004. (Wikipedia)
” Cyberpunks, a small subculture, influenced by the work of the author William Gibson and particularly the film Bladerunner, existed in London in the early 1990s. I became interested and photographed a series of about fifty portraits in my studio over a short period.”
I know that this is Cyberpunk, and not Cyberpop, but I just thought this was awesome and needed to be shared.
these guys were so much better than steampunks goddamn
THEY’RE SO BEAUTIFUL
i have to go to sleep now to avoid feeling any feelings about a thing
but why would you post that, knowing what you know about that person and that other person and me?
My favorite definition for bisexuality so far is the one popularized by (the wonderful) bisexual activist Robyn Ochs. Ochs says, “I call myself bisexual because I acknowledge that I have in myself the potential to be attracted—romantically and/or sexually—to people of more than one sex, and/or gender, not necessarily at the same time, not necessarily in the same way, and not necessarily to the same degree.”
This is by far the broadest and most enabling definition of bisexuality that I’ve found to date. Its strength is in the way it enables anyone who wants to identify as bisexual to do so. (In other words, it reassures people.)
In a world in which bisexuality is usually very narrowly defined, many people who experience bisexual desire, and want to identify as bi, often feel afraid to start (or keep) identifying as such, as they feel as though they “don’t qualify.” The role that an enabling definition for bisexuality can fulfill to counter these feelings of internalized biphobia is invaluable—and I feel that Ochs’s definition does just that. It reassures people that they are “allowed” to identify as bisexual if they wish to do so.
THE ANTICIPATION FOR THIS WAS UNREAL.
i am just so worried that Dicko won’t listen to this.
THIS IS GLORIOUS. Considering making it my Christmas ringtone.
Just needed this on my tumblr so I can go back and listen to it thrice daily from now until Xmas
The female body has many uses. It’s been used as a door-knocker, a bottle-opener, as a clock with a ticking belly, as something to hold up lampshades, as a nutcracker, just squeeze the brass legs together and out comes your nut. It bears torches, lifts victorious wreaths, grows copper wings and raises aloft a ring of neon stars; whole buildings rest on its marble heads.
It sells cars, beer, shaving lotion, cigarettes, hard liquor; it sells diet plans and diamonds, and desire in tiny crystal bottles. Is this the face that launched a thousand products? You bet it is, but don’t get any funny big ideas, honey, that smile is a dime a dozen.
It does not merely sell, it is sold. Money flows into this country or that country, flies in, practically crawls in, suitful after suitful, lured by all those hairless pre-teen legs. Listen, you want to reduce the national debt, don’t you? Aren’t you patriotic? That’s the spirit. That’s my girl.
She’s a natural resource, a renewable one luckily, because those things wear out so quickly. They don’t make ‘em like they used to. Shoddy goods.

Anonymous asked: I assumed that you were gay/queer
Yeah, I probably identify as Pan or Queer. I think it’s just weird for me because I haven’t really talked about it openly irl much? Not deliberately- it just really doesn’t come up often, and I always just thought of myself as “human attracted to other humans”.
anon is probably the first person to ask me that question since my mum did when I was 15, ahaha!!
