“… The truth is
I learned to live without hope
as well as I could, almost happily,
in the despoiled and radiant now.”
— excerpt from Stephen Dunn’s “A Postmortem Guide” from his collection Different Hours (via mmbakes)

“It was everywhere, in the streets and houses,
on farms and now in the air itself.
It had come from history, and we were history,
so it had come from us.
I told my artist friends who courted it
not to suffer on purpose, not to fall in love
with sadness because it would naturally be theirs—

“There is little precedent for fat androgyny. Generally our androgynous icons are svelte and lacking in secondary sex characteristics. David Bowie, Tilda Swinton, Katherine Hepburn; these small-bodied, predominately white figures of androgyny have created an aesthetic with little room for deviation. This means that for those of us with bodies that do not conform to traditional standards of androgyny, we are often misread and misunderstood, even in queer spaces.”

I know I don’t have many followers, and maybe no one will read this but I’m in a bit of a financial situation.
I got in an accident on the way to move into my apartment and my car is not happy about it. It looked fine so i drove it for about 40 minutes and then it overheated. i pulled over, let it cool down, but then it wouldn’t start. So, I had to tow it for 120$ to a mechanic. I need a radiator, fan, compressor, battery, and some body work, like a grill, hood latch, and some framing. They keep finding things wrong with it and I haven’t been able to get it back yet. It’s over 1,000$ to fix it. Since I just moved here, I don’t have a job and my boyfriend just got hired, but doesn’t have many hours and relies on tips right now.
We are struggling to pay for my car repairs and I need my car so I can get a job. We’re very stressed out about it and I don’t know what else to do.
I set up a paypal account for anyone who finds the desire to donate some money to me, and I put a link on my page.
Here’s a link to the paypal page
If that doesn’t work go on my blog, or click here
I hate asking for money, but I’m desperate. Anything would help and I would appreciate it all. You guys are the best, thanks for reading this.
EDIT: total cost of damage is 1531.80
If you can, please help my best friend

“Don’t plant your bad days. They grow into weeks. The weeks grow into months. Before you know it, you got yourself a bad year. Take it from me - choke those little bad days. Choke ‘em down to nothing.”

“Do not fall in love with people like me
we will take you to
museums and parks
and kiss you in every beautiful
place so that you can
never go back to them
without tasting us
like blood in your mouth”
