Just keep going.
No feeling is final."

Until I was in 5th grade, I used to live in this yellow boarding house (something like Hey Arnold). Along the pathway to the building right next door there was a row of these huge cherry blossom trees. My siblings and I used to climb and play on them. Each year, my mother would help me cut a few branches that had flowers on them to give to a teacher or bus driver. That went on until I moved. With all the bad stuff that had happened there, I think that was my most cherished memory. A few years later, they cut down the trees. I still don’t know why and that saddens me.

The NO MORE campaign launched last year, and was updated this week to include additional ads that are more inclusive to male victims of sexual assault.

“Being part of NO MORE from the beginning has been a great privilege,” Hargitay explained in a statement released on Friday. “Society continues to misplace shame and blame on survivors — both women and men. That has to end. By confronting the myths and excuses we rely on to avoid ending domestic violence and sexual assault, NO MORE fills me with confidence and renewed determination that we will put an end to the violence.”

every year after you turn 17 you get further away from being the age of the dancing queen and that’s my least favorite thing about growing up

ah but when you turn 34 you’re two dancing queens and thus having twice the time of your life. and at 51 you become the dancing triumvirate and three golden crowns are forged in your honor

lots to look forward to

S.H.I.E.L.D.’s public relations department decides to take nice photos of the Avengers so that they can send them to the media whenever the team goes public. They somehow manage to convince Thor to put on normal clothes and get through the photoshoots pretty quickly.

Except Tony wouldn’t stop preening and duck facing. They eventually gave up and used the “best” one. To this day, Tony still gets the stink eye from the head of PR.
