do you ever just feel so awkward when you buy something and pay in cash and the cashier gives you the change back but you take a few seconds to put the money in your wallet and you can feel the world judging you from afar
A NOTE FROM A CASHIER: YES WE ARE FUCKING JUDGING YOU MOVE THE FUCK OUT OF THE WAY YOU ARE HOLDING PEOPLE AND THEIR SHIT UP BYE
stripesandshoelaces asked Last year life sucked. in the closet&being stuck between a guy who I didnt love anymore&a girl I had fallen for. rumors flew,&my life came screaming&crashing down onto my head. I felt utterly&completely judged &helpless. I couldnt go on fb let alone survive school. I asked you what to do&you told me to tell them all to screw themselves. It meant a lot to me, seeing someone 100s of miles away take time&actually give a fuck. This year, I'm out! I've been with my gf for 7 amazing months:) thank you
To see the President win reelection meant a lot to me in so many different ways it’s actually indescribable. Having worked on his campaign in 2008, I was beyond inspired by Barack Obama. He moved me in a way that nothing really ever had before. To me, he represented something larger than a political message. He showed me that hope, change, belief in yourself and others, and determination really can bring about real change. When he won in 2008, I felt immense pride and accomplishment. His campaign was unlike any campaign this country had ever seen. It brought people together because we knew that this time, we had only one shot to bring about real change. I may seem like a political know it all the time, so please understand when I say that working on that campaign gave me a sense of purpose I had never felt before. I felt in my heart that it is where I belonged and that Barack Obama needed to be my President. I may have only been 13, but I know what I felt and I know what I believed. After watching him in his first four terms, I knew that my hard work had not gone to waste. Barack Obama fought for me everyday he was in office, and I knew that. I watched him accomplish so much in his first four years. I watched him barrel through huge obstacles that critics put in his way. This man is my role model, and when he announced that he believed I had a right to marry the person I love, I knew that in 2012, he had to win again. The progress and change we had achieved in the first four years could not go to waste. When 2012 rolled around, I was 17. I was more educated and less naive. But I still had my convictions, and I still had my beliefs. Barack Obama may have grayed just a tad, but his convictions and beliefs stood just as true as they did four years ago. I knew that I had to fight for him again, and that this time it had to be even harder. And so I did. I joined the campaign again and visited neighborhoods, called swing states, donated, fund raised, the whole thing. And when last Tuesday rolled around, I knew in my heart that he was going to win. I knew that our cause was just. I knew that hope and change may not be a “strategy” to some people, but that it was something worth fighting for. I knew that my President had fought for me everyday he was in office, and that I had to do the same for him. So I did. And when he was the projected winner, I felt everything I felt in 2008 again, only I felt more fulfilled. This was truly our victory. Seeing the man you fought so hard for, seeing the man who fought so hard for you, reelected was something I cannot even begin to describe. This was more than election to me. Millions of people, including me, had propelled the man we saw as one of the last hopes for this country to victory. And when the odds are stacked against you from the beginning, achieving progress and fully realizing the meaning of the word “forward” means a ton more.
i’m gonna make a really sappy post about the election get ready bitches
Anonymous asked i follow you on instagram. I was just wondering, if you love Obama so much why did you portray Romney?
If you’re referring to the Presidential Debate I did in school, I portrayed Romney because I thought that it is important to show that you can argue the other side just as well as the side you yourself support. I was Mitt Romney because I chose to take the other side and prove that I know the Republican side, and that is why I disagree with it. Knowing your own side is only half of what it takes to win a debate - you have to know the other side better than your own.
And for the record, I won the debate with 60% of the vote.
