Codependency isn’t sexy. It isn’t romantic. It’s built with a fuse and will surely burn out. The healthiest thing you can say to the one you love is, “I would be okay without you, and that’s why I choose to stay.”

My amazing friend frenchiea bought me this book. It’s a bunch of the original Sidney Paget illustrations from the Sherlock Holmes canon, but taken completely out of context and given new captions.
I’m laughing so hard I’m crying.
This, ladies and gentlemen, is pure sexism in everyday society.
Casual observation that it’s mostly girls drooling over guys and then calling the girls whores

When my mother started doing physical therapy after her operation (several months ago) I sent her this video. Her exercises usually make her cry, so I sit in the room and make the reluctant Weddell seal noises for her. She says this helps.
This is literally me, as I procrastinate writing this damn memo.
Me getting out of bed in the morning. Bleeeeeerch…meehbleerp blerp.
if i ever fail to reblog this it’s because i’m dead
