I think a lot of people think that to be strong, you have to be completely independent and never show weakness and fight all of your battles by yourself. And that’s not true. Even the strongest people have others to lean on. Friends to hug, parents to make them dinner, and acquaintances to wish them a good day.
It’s okay to ask for help, or to ask someone to give you a big hug because you feel so much weight on your shoulders you need someone to share the load. That’s all okay. You are important, and loved.
Dear people of tumblr I need your help!
So if you’re like me, sometimes your online friends are having a hard time, and being miles and miles away you feel there is very little you can do to cheer them up. This blog is a solution to that problem.
So here’s how this blog works:
1. You or someone submits a url.
2. We post one url a day from our submissions
3. Everyone who follows this blog sends them something nice. It could be a nice message or a funny video or some pretty art or anything that is generally happy making. We will just stuff that persons inbox full of happy.
But here’s the deal. I need lots of help to make this thing work. So please reblog and get the word out! And maybe follow?
And if you see someone who needs some cheering up submit their url! Even if it’s you! I don’t care.
I’ve gotten a small handful of new followers (HELLO!) and this project still needs some help so I’m reposting it!
The Disappointments Diary by Nick Asbury
Life is a bitch and then something happens to you at the end (though I forget what.. you get ice cream? Turn into a viking? Not sure), which is probably why I could never stay committed to filling out an actual planner. Well, that and the fact that I never make any plans. But why half-ass your misery? Go all in with the Disappointments Diary, a dreary reminder that every day is meaningless and could probably be your last. Purchase your own over at Disappointments Diary.
Oh man. My mom normally buys everyone a calendar each Christmas, but that’s not happening this year, so I kind of want this instead. I’m debating if it’s worth ~$20.
Someone needs to open a bar at this location. but keep the original sign.
We have on in my town called “The Library” It’s a pretty old building and it’s awesome.
I would go drink at a bar called The Book Shop.
(We have a bar in town called The Library, too- or at least we used to- but it’s more just a college bar. Disappointing.)
