This was probably the worst time to see this on my car. Not looking for sympathy, but I just encourage you all to walk with kindness because you never know what someone’s really going through despite what you see on the outside.

okay but still doesn’t give you the right to use a handicap spot when you’re not handicapped

I do have a handicap. Feel free to look into what invisible illness means and what it can entail. That’s why I’m sharing my story! It’s all about being appropriately informed. You can personally check out dysautonomia international and the ehlers danlos national foundation to learn more about just two of the many handicaps I face on a daily basis.

Like reallySomeone saw the OPAnd instead of realizing “Oh, they must have an illness that justified the use of this sticker,” they thought “YEAH BUT OF COURSE THIS PERSON ISNT DISABLED IM GOING TO TELL THEM HOW WRONG IT IS TO USE A HANDICAPPED SPOT WHEN THEY DON’T HAVE A REAL HANDICAP”-_-

One time I went to the store and saw a motorcycle with a sidecar parked in a handicapped space. It had a placard displayed on it. A woman came up and got upset and started to complain about “misuse of the placards” and “how she ought to call the police.”
Just then a guy in a wheelchair came out of the store, rolled up to the motorcycle, flipped himself onto the seat (he was quite obviously paralyzed from the waist down), stuck the wheelchair into the sidecar and rode away.
The look on the woman’s face was priceless. Moral of the story: don’t make assumptions.

"Well I was a young writer once…"

You guys know johndarnielle is going to be here 5/29 for the Tumblr Writers BEA Party, right? His book, Wolf in White Van, has an awesome cover (I’m assuming an awesome inside too but I haven’t seen that yet) and is coming out this fall. It’s going to be a great night; be sure to come!

Related: never forget the now dead (?) mountaingoatssingmountaingoats. Never. Forget.

I remain a young writer but, as I’ve said elsewhere, one who takes a dimmer view of tormented narrators attempting to project their inner strife onto other characters’ lives. get it together narrators or at least get it untogether in more together ways

reblogging this in case anybody didn’t know I’m reading from Wolf in White Van at Housing Works on 5/29! That’s, like, next week!

When people turn to fictional characters, it’s often because they want an escape. The stories of these people shelter us from the storm of our daily lives; they save us, if only for a little while. But when we really give in, become invested, let ourselves be vulnerable, something changes. We begin to feel that we know them. It’s no longer just an escape, but part of us, something that makes us who we are.

These characters teach us that incredible adversity can be overcome. That people can love each other forever. That life can be an adventure. That magic can be real. And even if these miracles have never happened to us, we begin to go through life believing that, someday, they could. 

If anybody ever tells me that storytelling isn’t important anymore, I’ll show them this post.

wow THIS THO

Someday, I hope to actually laugh at these comics.

but seriously fuck people who think our generation had everything handed to us. we may not be first generation college students, but we’re paying double/triple what you paid for an education of more questionable quality. i’m not saying we don’t have it better, but we’re not as lazy as you think.

I will always reblog this because there isn’t a single day that I don’t think about all the things I’d do if I didn’t have student loans to worry about. I could buy a car, a house even! Imagine the economic stimulus if 20-30 somethings didn’t have 5-6 figure student loans, holding them back.

Nothing a year of dealing drugs or stripping wont fix lol

The only reason I ever thought of entering the sex work industry was because of my student loans. No lie.

what i’d really like is for someone to objectively watch me for a week or so and then just sit down with me for a few hours and explain to me what i am like and how i look to others and what my personality is in detail and how i need to improve where do i sign up for that

That movie is called I Heart Huckabees and trust me, I don’t know that you really want that
