I was driving past a business here in the Houston Heights, when I glimpsed this painted on the side of the building. I recognized that iconic WWII poster before I realized it was not just any woman, but 14 year old Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani girl who was attacked for wanting an education. The words next to her are her quote, ( “I don’t mind if I have to sit on the floor at school.) All I want is education. And I’m afraid of no one.”

This is gorgeous.

yes

Visit us this weekend at the Brooklyn flea! We have all kinds of vintage and handmade goodies, and more importantly were super excited to share them 😊

Nostalgia is a
dirty liar
that insists things
were better
than they seemed.

Pain makes people change. So if you don’t want them to change, don’t hurt them because you will never get them back the same.

You know what I think? I think love has become too attached to romantic notions, when in fact, there are so many types of love in this world. We should say ‘I love you’ more to our parents and our grandparents. We should hold hands with our best friends and hug each other just because. Somehow along the way, we’ve been limiting ourselves to deep kisses and intimacies when really small gestures and a simple smile means just as much.

I wish to dispel the notion that women are “more emotional.” I don’t think we are. I think that the emotions women stereotypically express are what men call “emotions,” and the emotions that men typically express are somehow considered by men to be something else.

This is incorrect. Anger? EMOTION. Hate? EMOTION. Resorting to violence? EMOTIONAL OUTBURST. An irrational need to be correct when all the evidence is against you? Pretty sure that’s an emotion. Resorting to shouting really loudly when you don’t like the other person’s point of view? That’s called “being too emotional to engage in a rational discussion.”

Not only do I think men are at least as emotional as women, I think that these stereotypically male emotions are more damaging to rational dialogue than are stereotypically female emotions. A hurt, crying person can still listen, think, and speak. A shouting, angry person? That person is crapping all over meaningful discourse.

I think relationships in general are over romanticized like at the end of the day I’m pretty sure a good relationship is just two people who know how to hang out and talk to each other not whether or not they can right all your wrongs or paint a picture of a thousand suns with the breath from your lungs or some shit
