imreallybad:

repeat after me: 

  • virginity is a social construct 
  • you don’t lose your virginity 
  • there’s nothing valuable or precious about virginity, it’s an imaginary concept 
  • virginity is inherently heterocentric 
  • your worth is not defined by whether or not you’ve had a dick inside you
  • what you define as sex is up to you, you get to decide how many people you’ve had sex with 
  • the end 

Heed these words. This is gold.

romanovastiel:

Treat yourself the way you treat your favorite characters. Look into your back-story to understand your current plot. Sympathize with yourself. Recognize your flaws, and appreciate your strengths. Defend yourself. Cheer yourself on when you go into battle. Appreciate every relationship you make and always look for hidden potential. You’re the protagonist in your story. You’re the main character. You’re the hero.

Treat yourself like one.

1. Do your research when choosing a tattoo and an artist.
Don’t rush yourself when choosing an idea. You’re going to have to live with it forever.
Most artists have a speciality, think about this when choosing one. If you want a photorealistic tattoo don’t choose an artist who specializes in American Traditional, for example.
Don’t ask to have your neck/face/hands tattooed if it’s your first tattoo, you will most likely be denied.
Look into the cost of the tattoo before walking into the shop, don’t sacrifice the tattoo you want to get a good deal. Save up to get the right ink.
Be prepared to be placed on a large wait list for the more popular artists.




2. Prepare properly on the day you get your tattoo.
Eat a full meal beforehand.
Many artists recommend drinking orange juice prior to getting inked.
Don’t drink alcohol beforehand.
Getting tattooed is a pretty intimate experience, don’t forget to shower.
3. Bring a good reference photo.
Bring in a high res photo if possible; at the very least a picture that is big and not blurry.
4. Don’t bring your entourage to the shop with you.
It’s fine to bring a friend to hold your hand, any more than one is rude and obnoxious.
Children are not permitted in most tattoo shops, leave them at home.
5. Trust your artist. 
The artist knows what they are doing, there is no need to be a “backseat driver.”




6. Check out the stencil design, body placement, and spelling before the tattoo begins.

If you see something, say something. You aren’t going to hurt anyone’s feelings if you tell them that something is spelled incorrectly.
7. Be prepared to go through some pain, tattoos hurt.
Don’t be afraid to tell your artist that you need to take a break if the pain is too much. Nobody wants a passed out client.
Ribs, feet, hands, head, and the spine all really hurt.




8. Stay still!
We know that it might be difficult to do so, but make every effort to remain as calm and still as possible while getting tattooed. If you are jittery the artist won’t be able to create straight lines.
9. Tip your artist.
Most artists don’t own their shops and have to pay a percentage of the tattoo price to the shop.
Tipping anywhere between 10-20% should be fine.
If you really love the work don’t be afraid of tipping extra.
10. Take care of your tattoo once you leave the shop.
Tattoo aftercare is a crucial step in assuring you have a good tattoo.
Tattoos will scab and they should heal in 2-3 weeks.
Avoid sun and going in bodies of water for the first 2 weeks.
Keep the tattoo moist and clean as it heals.
Once it’s healed don’t forget to use SPF 50 sunscreen when going outside, you don’t want your tattoo to fade.

Soo, I forgot one of my best-friend’s (From High School) birthday. 
Do I feel bad about it? Yes, I do. However, I don’t feel too bad about it. You might ask why? annnd there’s only one short answer I can give. I started to distance myself from everyone and that includes friends, from high school and college. I don’t talk to many people that influence my life anymore. I will probably send the occasional “Hey, I hope you are doing well” text, but other than that and a few more messages I usually go back to me being me. I’m not saying that I’m saying goodbye to everyone, but I do hope we cross again, as everyone helped me become who I am. (I have a small wall of photos from everyone that helped me in some way, so I treasure every memory) But, with that being said, people change throughout time so we’re not going to be the same as before. 

Point: If we don’t talk to each other frequently, or even occasionally then yea, things will be forgotten and I will feel bad about, but I’ll probably shake it off and so should you. (Just remember the memories we had, and hope we cross each other again.)
