Never settle. Fight for the life, the career, the dreams, the love that you deserve. -Mandy Hale

And to be quite honest, we do not care about the Israeli society. We don’t care to humanize or dehumanize them, although the latter is more appropriate. We will never buy into this two-sides two-equal-suffering all-we-want-is-peace bullshit. We don’t want peace with Zionists or with anyone that reaps the profits from a inherently violent jingoistic colonial system.
And this might disappoint you greatly, but we don’t advocate for transitional justice nor do we have the luxury talking about truth and reconciliation when being bombed, fragmented and deprived of our most basic rights. Transitional justice is for white people. We want revenge from the system that stripped us of our humanity.
To the Israeli society in general: Coexistence is not on the agenda. We do not have the time to waste waiting for Israel’s radicals to make a social revolution or convince their society that Zionism sucks. We are not imploring, beseeching, or asking you. We demand an end to the occupation, for you to break out of the prisons you have for minds, and for the love of all things good and holy, end the siege on Gaza.” Linah Alsaafin and Budour Hassan, Exposing the Israeli Left: On the Issue of Israel’s Radicals (Part Two) (via redphilistine)

Happy 8th Anniversary, BIGBANG! Wow. 8 years. It never crossed my mind that one day 5 talented artists, namely, Kwon Jiyong, Choi Seung Hyun, Kang Daesung, Dong Youngbae and Lee Seunghyun would become an important piece of my life. One day, I came across the Lollipop MV, then boom. You guys blew me away and my sanity started falling apart, as fast as the domino effect lmao. Anyway, I wanted to share something I’ve read in Thought Catalog:
"Fangirling is the process of giving a part of yourself to something, be it related to school, sports, books, or anything else that you may have a passion for. Fangirling is the unbridled excitement over one particular piece of entertainment or mastery. It is the ability to explore the extent of one comic book or football game without worrying about other tasks that need to be completed. It is the need to forget one’s self, and simply enjoy. Appreciate. Savor in. Devote a part of your life to. These are all synonyms for one thing. Not obsession, as Oxford would have us believe. These words are synonyms for love."
"That is the simplest way to describe the feeling of fangirling — to love something deeply. Unconditionally. At times, it feels akin to loving family and friends. But this is a unique love, because this love is one-sided. You give so much of yourself to this one thing, and receive nothing in return. And while most one-sided loves are tragic, this one is comforting and refreshing. We never want to stop giving in to this one-sided love, even though we may have our hearts broken time and time again. We are always able to return to that baseball field or book series and give it another try. And it will always feel the same way — sweet and satisfying."
Enough said, right? Thank you, BIGBANG, for the love and inspiration. For the motivation, though you aren’t physically there for me, but through your music, I got through a lot of obstacles and problems in my life. I hope that you won’t feel sad everytime the world looks down on you because when you turn back, us VIPs will always be here for you. I don’t think any other group can replace your number one spot in my heart because I’d choose you; in a hundred lifetimes, in a hundred worlds, in any version of reality, I’d find you and I’d choose you. I love you from the depths of my heart! More years to come! Fighthing, BIGBANG!
"Don’t blame the SOLDIERS who are the ones pulling the triggers and killing people and blowing up homes and double tapping funerals and droning civilians and raping the native people and torturing them and covering up for fellow soldiers and terrorizing countries!!!! They only joined to pay for college!!!! Blame the system! Yeah man! Fight the power!!!"
“And a mistake repeated more than once is a decision.”Paulo Coelho (via creatingaquietmind)
there is just so much suffering and sadness and horrible things in the world, so much useless and pointless suffering. please spend your time on this earth making people feel loved. please love one another. reach out to someone who is hurting. appreciate others, and love others. there’s too much useless sadness in this world.
Christy Mack released the statement above on her Twitter today about the abuse she endured Friday by the hands of her boyfriend, MMA fighter, Jon Koppenhaver. She said this isn’t the first time it’s happened but it’s the never been this bad. He spent 1 year in jail in 2012 for assault at a night club. My heart and well wishes go out to Christy Mack. I wish her a quick recovery and I hope they find this asshole and serve him the justice he deserves. If a loved one abuses you mentally or physically, they most likely will not stop. Get out while you can. 1-800-799-SAFE or click Chat on the upper right hand side.
Cops are looking for him and Christy is in the hospital but he has the audacity to tweet 18 hrs ago:
and also directly to her:
And there are still people who are blaming Christy and believing this dirt ball:He’s trying to make himself look like the victim. “Oh I had an engagement ring” “I love you and hope you’re okay.”
He’s absolute garbage.
What a piece of fucking filth.
he been crazy .
this made me cry wallahi
