do you ever just want to grab someone in one of your classes
and pull their face close and whisper
“I am ten times smarter than you will ever be, your opinions are both ill-informed and unoriginal, the career path you are headed on is so overdosed with barely competent imbeciles like you that you will be incapable of finding a job, and incidentally your shoes are clashing with your outfit in a way that cannot even be called deliberately bad. so shut. the. fuck. up.”
thank you! haha yeah, my hair feels so much healthier now. honestly, i didn’t really think about it—my hair had taken a damn beating whilst i was in Phuket from all the saltwater and sun, and i was so sick of seeing how ratty it looked :(
i was thinking of going back to black! but decided to go more purple-fuschia with shorter locks. change is always good, i think, although i am definitely going back to my signature hair again when i come home :3
Vietnamese photographer Thanh Ha Bui captured this incredible image in his parents’ back garden and, after spotting a line of super strong weaver ants marching across a branch, decided to test their legendary weightlifting skills. First experimenting with pieces of food and leaves, he eventually ended up with this incredible shot
it’s not rude at all!
i’m sorry to hear that you struggle with body-image, but i just want you to know that everyone goes through it and you are honestly not alone.
i wasn’t always this size, and i think the thing that trips me out the most is when people keep telling me that i’ve lost a lot of weight. to me, i think i’ve maintained a relatively consistent frame, but i may have just toned down a lot compared to when i was in high school.
i’ve been asked a lot about how i lost weight and i can honestly say i don’t know. i can say eat right and work out, but i swear this doesn’t work for everyone because people’s bodies are so widely varied. instead, i’ll tell you how i improved the perception i have of myself which i really hope would help you somehow.
i used to do this really unhealthy thing where i try to gage how much everyone around me weighed or compared myself to any girl i see. it was never conscious—i did it without thinking, and that really messed me up. the way i got through it is to realise how capable my body actually is: i can run and walk and jump and dance and eat and roll around and what have you, and that’s honestly a blessing you only notice when you can’t do it anymore.
i didn’t lose weight or get toned because i forced myself to (although i suppose some people will tell you that’s the only motivation?). i reminded myself to be happy with what i have, and treating myself with a lot of respect and learning to love my body, and somehow the toning and weight-loss came naturally.
sorry for the ramble. i really hope this was of some help. have a lovely day wherever you are :)
