?Do you ever think about all the people who you might have fallen in love with if only you’d taken a different way home or stood a little longer in the bread aisle at the supermarket? All the people who might have been an integral part of your life but instead you’ll never know them. The unimaginable impact that our mundane choices have on our lives really gets to me. Think of how many times I might have died if I’d made different choices. Maybe I’d be homeless. Maybe I’d be famous. Maybe I’d be rich. Sometimes I’m so overwhelmed by the impact of my choices that I can’t choose anything at all because I’m afraid today will be the day that I make the choice that changes everything.?
When I grow up I want to be Ming-Na Wen.
She’s the voice of Mulan, as if she wasn’t amazing enough.
She broke it with her fingers. Not a fist, her fingers.
Girl is 50 years old.
FIFTY. YEARS. OLD.
fun fact: When you break things with your hands like that you have t break your fingers on purpose before so that they heal stronger. So basically this woman is so badass she broke her hands just to do this.
You asshat, you’re making it sound like she snaps her fingers in half.
Martial artists like Jackie Chan and Bruce Lee (and yes, fucking Ming-Na Wen, that beautiful badass) will build up their bone strength by repeatedly (and fairly gently) striking sand, gravel, wood and steel - this creates tons of microfractures in their bones (smaller than even a hairline fracture) so the bones will heal over again and make the bones stronger and denser with increased deposits of calcium.
This has to be done over long-ass periods of time, so the bones have time to heal, and none of the fractures expand into actual breaks.
Oh, and she’s doing precise-ass kicks in HIGH HEELS.
she kicks ass like a coursing river
with all the force of a great typhoon
With all the strength of a raging fire
As adorable as the dark side of the moooooooon
Ah Jason, he is a total legend. Yes, our first ever meeting in the lobby of a Belfast hotel did start by him rugby tackling me to the floor yelling “WIFEY!!”

I AM SO BEYOND FUCKING DONE
?You can keep as quiet as you like, but one of these days somebody is going to find you.?
and he’s found me, and that scares me.
what if we feel pain in some parts of our body 24/7 since we were born but we just accepted it and now we feel nothing and that’s why babies cry so much
correct me if i’m wrong, but don’t we always feel pain in some part of our body (like our feet or legs since we’re on them for a significant portion of the day and they support our entire body weight) but we’re desensitized to it since if we felt it all the time, we’d never be attentive to other important things around us kinda like how when you start smelling something for a long period of time, you get desensitized to the smell and can’t really smell it to the same extent you did before. also, babies can’t communicate other than by crying, really, so the reason that babies cry is just more than one reason
I’m sorry, love. I’m a horrible friend. But you’ve been in my thoughts everyday, and I’m a little too ashamed to call you. Forgive me? I’ll call you soon.
IM SO ANGRY
ARE YOU FUCKING SERIOUS
Why would Frozen ever win any awards? Aw come frickin on, Academy Awards… -_-
?I am tired of trying to hold things together that cannot be held. Trying to control what cannot be controlled. I am tired of denying myself what I want for fear of breaking things I cannot fix. They will break no matter what we do.?
Erin Morgenstern, The Night Circus
?I often feel as if I’m standing on one side of a wide chasm, shouting across, wondering if the response I hear comes from you or if it is my own voice, echoing back to me. It seems to me, on my side of the canyon, the search for unity with another is the front of much of the world’s unhappiness… I conduct myself as though I’m above matters of the heart, chiefly because I have seen them corrode people I respect. But in my candid moments I sometimes wonder if I take the stance I do because love, for lack of a better word, is a game I fail to understand, so I opt not to play. After all, if I truly had the purity of all my convictions, I wouldn’t regret so many of the things I’ve done, nor would I resist against so many of my better instincts in this correspondence.?

i think i’ve regressed a few weeks in terms of how far we’ve come along
i’ve been frozen immobile by fear and doubts
- *after watching a music video*
- me: Does she look like me?
- elaine: No.
- me: Am I prettier?
- elaine: ... *pause* Yes.
- me: Why was that pause so long?
- mommy: Maybe Elaine doesn't think so. Not for mommy, but maybe Elaine doesn't think so.
- elaine: Do you know what umma said while it (videochat) was muted?? She said the other girl was prettier!
- me: *gasp* How could you?
- mommy: *laughing* I can't believe you told her.
- elaine: If you're bringing me down, I'm taking you with me!
- mommy: *amused disbelief*
- elaine: But you can tell that girl was just a sexual object.
- me: ... *lol*
- elaine: All she does is sit there, and she has no meaning in her life.
- me: *lolol*
- elaine: At least you have meaning in your life.
- mommy and me: *laughing*
- elaine: And a pretty face!
(but writing takes up so much gddamn time and i don’t go to church to avoid listening to sermons and use that time to write instead and i have an odd obsession with typing oh lawdie i love typing)
Currently: eating J Gumbo’s and webcamming with Rain and listening to my computer whirring (would turn on music but Google Hangout is killing my internet and my preferred music player is Youtube. Agh maybe I’ll turn iTunes on. Dang nabbit)
?You shouldn’t care if that girl has cellulite if she’s going to have sex with your tiny Asian penis.?
