"People need to be encouraged. People need to be reminded of how wonderful they are. People need to be believed in—told that they are brave and smart and capable of accomplishing all the dreams they dream and more. Remind each other of this."

What am I doing with my life
THIS SHOW IS SO FUCKING STUPID WHY AM I WATCHING THIS GARBAGE I MUST BE IN A REALLY TERRIBLE PLACE IN MY LIFE
I MEAN SHIT HOW MANY MISUNDERSTANDINGS CAN THESE PEOPLE HAVE. Communication, folks. KUH-MUNE-IH-KATION.
So I’m at a weird place in my life where I have become nostalgic for the show Melrose Place which I used to watch with my mother when I was little and didnt really know what was going on… And there is no denying that its trash tv, BUT JESUS FUCKING CHRIST DOES IT ROPE YOU IN
"I loved you at your darkest."

my comfort level with you can be determined based on how repulsive I look in the snapchats I send you
"…as I was walking through the bus station an interfering busybody asked me why I needed a cane, at my age. ‘It was a car accident,’ I said, which usually shuts people up, but not her.
‘You shouldn’t use it, you should try to manage without it. It’s obvious you don’t really need it.’
I just walked on and ignored her, but I was shaking. It might seem as if I don’t need it, walking along on flat ground, but I need it if I have to stand still, and I really need it for stairs and broken ground, and I never know from one minute to another if I’m going to be the way I am today or the way I was yesterday, when I could barely put any weight on my leg at all.
‘See, you’re walking really fast now, you don’t need it at all,’ she called after me.
I stopped and turned around. I could feel my cheeks burning. The bus station was full of people. ‘Nobody would pretend to be a cripple! Nobody would use a stick they didn’t need! You should be ashamed of yourself for thinking that I would. If I could walk without it I’d break it in half across your back and run off singing. You have no right to talk to me like that, to talk to anyone like that. Who made you queen of the world when I wasn’t looking? Why do you imagine I would go out with a stick I don’t need—to try to steal your sympathy? I don’t want your sympathy, that’s the last thing I want. I just want to mind my own business, which is what you should have been doing.’"
Jo Walton, Among Others (via se-smith)
When I first started using my cane, an anon asked me why I deserved it. Not even why I needed it, but why I deserved it.
When I was an undergrad I lived on the second floor of my building and sometimes people would be rude to me if I took the elevator up. But those were the days that it hurt to get out of bed so fuck those people.
"You may not agree with a woman, but to criticize her appearance — as opposed to her ideas or actions — isn’t doing anyone any favors, least of all you. Insulting a woman’s looks when they have nothing to do with the issue at hand implies a lack of comprehension on your part, an inability to engage in high-level thinking. You may think she’s ugly, but everyone else thinks you’re an idiot."

This show is about six people in their 20′s who hang out at this coffee house. It’s about sex, love, relationship, careers… a time in your life when everything’s possible. And it’s about friendship, because when you’re single and in the city, your friends are your family.
