i think i sort of romanticized loneliness. i pictured me laying in the middle of a meadow by myself, or confidently sitting alone in a panera while strangers glanced at me and wondered what my story was.
but that’s not what loneliness is, at least not for me. loneliness is showering less often because you don’t anticipate having to leave the house. loneliness is saying yes to a game of scrabble with your mom, even though scrabble makes you want to rip your hair out. loneliness is convincing yourself that you like soap operas. loneliness is laying in bed, hoping you’ll fall back asleep because every moment spent unconscious is a moment you don’t have to deal with that knot in your stomach.
The start of my long battle with Internet addiction
there’s a “photo” going around of Emma Watson wearing a dress that is see-through at the top, showing her breasts, and because apparently literally nobody fact-checks or uses google, people are taking it for granted that it’s real and reblogging it.
i get that the way it’s being framed on tumblr is as a woman taking back her right to her body and her sexuality and as a response to 4chan threatening to release nude photos, but in reality it’s literally the opposite. it’s something some gross misogynistic asshole with too much time on his hands made in photoshop with the intent of humiliating and violating a woman.
please don’t reblog it, don’t contribute to it, and if you see people reblogging it, let them know.

the baby boomer culture: how an entire generation literally will not shut up about young people doing things they enjoy
The Divorce Culture: how an entire generation couldn’t keep it together, and forgot how to not project their insecurities onto children.
This about sums it up.
