they keep making music & it keeps getting better.
my friend’s husband & i have really different political views. i am comfortable leaving it at that, i have many friends with varying political & religious views. but because i love my friend & i want to be a part of her life i am finding it VERY difficult to be her partner’s friend on facebook (& elsewhere, really). this is stupid & petty but i feel like if i unfriend him to get away from his obnoxious posts (& him posting in response to the articles i share), it will cause some strife between me & my friend.
i don’t know, it’s so weird. people change all of the time, i know people change, but she met this man & converted from unitarian universalist to catholic, went from vegan to omnivore & stopped working to raise children & now hearing the way her partner speaks i just…i feel like i am going to lose my friend & i blame this dude. i know her parents felt this way early on in their relationship & almost did not attend her wedding because of it. i hate that i am feeling similarly now. the facebook debates are one thing (i refuse to engage in a debate on facebook or anywhere else on the internet if i can help it, i find them mostly hostile & unproductive). i just don’t have the emotional fortitude to stomach a bunch of hostile hetero white males in my life anymore.
i dunno, this all just makes me really sad. his facebook wall is full of articles i just find really offensive & ignorant, he is not someone i want in my life at all. his wife IS…and they are about to have their second child. i made it so that he doesn’t show up on my newsfeed, but honestly it’s a lot bigger than facebook. what do you do when you seriously cannot stand being around your dear friend’s chosen life partner?

“Had to say goodbye to my feline friend Bartleby today. For those who knew him they will remember a large cat with an even larger heart.” — my brother’s facebook status just made me start bawling all over again. Really sad right now.

I’m not a painter, but Rachel Miller is a huge inspiration to me anyway. I love the way she speaks about her creative process. It makes me want to write.

Hey tumblr, my friend and roommate Jay is currently seeking donations to help pay for his dog Liam’s emergency surgery, which could save his life. Liam was (legally) rescued from an animal testing facility 7 years ago. You can read about Jay’s experience rescuing Liam here.
Liam’s surgery will cost day about $4,500 - $5,000 and Jay has spent today taking out numerous credit cards to pay for the surgery, which he could not otherwise afford. If you could spare a dollar or two it would be much appreciated. You can learn more about Liam and Jay and donate via ChipIn here.
Please share and reblog! Thank you.
This is my good friend and old roommate Jay’s dog. I stayed with this dog for a year and he was a sweetheart and deserves to live through as much shit as possible because of all the torture he was put through. If you can, please help.

today a good friend from college was hit over the head with a chair & put into a coma by some transphobic douche at some club called “glo” in new brunswick. he is awake now, thank every god anyone has ever believed in. the idea of my friend being beaten unconscious is really fucking horrifying. i know this stuff happens all of the time but it has never happened to one of my friends before…
Here, have an extremely hipsterized photo my friend took of me at the river.
people i miss
