Teacher: Write down 3 things you dislike about yourself
Me: *sits there*
Teacher: Ciara, why aren't you writing?
Me: I can't do this. I will take a zero, sorry.
Me: Because I refuse to promote self-hate. Because some people in the world can fill out 20 of these front and back with no blank spaces and this can trigger someone.
Teacher: Ciara, you have to do it or I am sending you to the office.
Me: Okay. *gets up and walks to office*

The Problem with 'Boys Will Be Boys' →
gettingahealthybody: For months, every morning when my daughter was in preschool, I watched her construct an elaborate castle out of blocks, colorful plastic discs, bits of rope, ribbons and feathers, only to have the same little boy gleefully destroy it within seconds of its completion. No matter how many times he did it, his parents never swooped in BEFORE the morning’s live 3-D reenactment...

CBS: *casts Lucy Liu to play character originally written as a white dude*
Brinydeep Catfishbits fans: how DARE they!!! this is a travesty! a mockery of the source material! a fundamental betrayal of the spirit of canon and the essence of the character! Arthur Conan Doyle would be spinning in his GRAVE!!!
Paramount: *casts Bassethound Cul-de-sac to play character originally written as desi*
Bumpersticker Cardigan fans: jeez, calm down everyone, it's just ACTING. i'm sure they just picked the most talented actor for the role! Benny is so talented he could play any role, and the franchise should be grateful to have him!

The one thing I would love to see in season 11
zivarocks44: Ziva messing up a idiom and then she finds out it was wrong and Tony didn’t correct her even though he heard it. And she’d be all like “I count on you to correct me, Tony. If I cannot count on you to be honest with me; who then can I count on?”

psilentasincjelli: If I ever tell you I’m going to sleep and then you see me posting or liking things online for about an hour immediately after that, I promise I wasn’t lying to you, I’m just bad at going to sleep and it is usually a long process that begins with disengaging from any sort of immediate contact with people (chats, for example) and ends when everything on my screen is blurry and...

WriteWorld: Where Your Ideas Come From →
krisnoel-lionhead: One of the most frequent questions I get as a writer is “where do you get your ideas from?” I’m always a bit baffled at first because sometimes I’m not really sure. It’s a difficult question to answer and I don’t think you can be a writer unless you have the ability to see… Some tips of my own: -Read anything dealing with history, from ancient to modern. Maybe this is...
friendly reminder that you don’t have to be around people who upset you or make you uncomfortable, even if those people are “friends” or “family”. you don’t owe them anything and you don’t deserve to be treated that way. you should surround yourself with people that are emotionally supportive because you deserve to be happy. friendly reminder that the aforementioned truth is not carte blanche...
