“You’re going to discover that conversations are best at 4 am. The heavier the eyelids, the sincerer the words. Those are the talks you’ll remember. It’s ok not to know the answer and silence is not awkward. It’s shared, so share it more often than not.”

– Jeff Stuckel (via idodirtythings)

Inspiration found in a bookstore.

A wonderful life philosophy.

1. Reblogging this as a reminder; and 2. I love when people I follow/am tumblr friends with reblog the things I post to the Malaprop’s tumblr.

Caveat to the last one: if it’s important to someone important to you, sometimes it’s appropriate to show your support

“you shouldn’t be depressed, people have it worse than you”

finally, after years of searching, the person with the worst life ever is found. formally, they are granted permission to be sad. but only them. only they have earned it. no sads for anyone else at all ever

In college, we don’t say “I love you”, we say “I have 5 essays, two finals, and 3 group projects due in the next 8 days” which translates to “I would like to be crushed by a train” and I think that’s pretty cool.

Apparently this picture (top) is currently circulating Facebook. This is some racist bullshit. Immigrants are dangerous? Is that the message?

Well clearly these people don’t know about the man in the cowboy hat from the Boston Marathon Bombing (bottom pic).

His name is Carlos Arrendondo. He has been a peace activist since 2004, when his son was killed serving his country in Iraq.

Carlos is an immigrant from Costa Rica. At first, he was an undocumented immigrant, but is now a US citizen. 

When the bombs went off in boston that day, Carlos ran towards the carnage. He found Jeffery Bauman (the man in the wheelchair) lying on the ground in a pool of blood, both his legs blown off. He picked up Jeffery and carried him to a wheelchair, all while pinching shut his exposed artery to stop him from bleeding out. 

Later, from his hospital bed, Jeffery described the bombing suspects to the police. Without Jeff, the police wouldn’t have been able to identify Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and his brother so quickly. And without Carlos, Jeff probably wouldn’t have lived to talk to the police.

Preventing legal immigration won’t stop massacres like this from occurring (just ask natural born US citizens like James Holmes, Adam Lanza, Jared Laughner, Eric Harris and Dylan klebold, and Timothy McVeigh).

But it will make it harder for the Carlos Arrendondos’ of the world to save more lives.
