That moment when you realize your YA fantasy novel’s sequel is mostly about drugs. 

In an effort to not be like Frozen and the whole mental illness theme, I had better become more knowledgeable about the subject, pronto!

And I had better have some people die from unicorn blood addictions, so that it’s more than a convenient plot device.

What if this had been reverse? What if the girl dumped him and then he smashed all of her CDS or her cellphone and laptop? How would society react? By calling him abusive and controlling.
See, female on male abuse is seen as funny or comical. you see those commercials with the wife throwing the boyfriends stuff out the window. IF the genders were reversed, everyone would see it and call it out for what it really is…abuse.
Abuse is not funny in any way shape or form.
This is why we don’t need feminism.

This mother fucker also owes him a fuckton of money.

thats more than 600$ worth of games!
that’s a fucking felony, theft and destruction of property. call the law on the psycho bitch!

"This is why we don’t need feminism."
Actually, it’s why we DO need feminism. Because feminism isn’t about making women superior and putting men on the bottom. Feminism IS about making everyone equal. The “comedy” behind male abuse is a result of the patriarchy, which is exactly what feminism is trying to destroy. The patriarchy mocks weakness in men, so when men get abused, it’s not taken seriously. It’s a joke, it’s funny, it’s no big deal. “You’re a man, suck it up.”
That’s not what feminists want. If you think that’s what we want, then you you’re not talking to the right feminists. It’s about equality, NOT just reversing the roles, understand?
It’s not okay to abuse women, it’s not okay to abuse men, it’s not okay to abuse ANYONE. That’s the fucking point. The point isn’t “whaa it’s time for women to get to be mean you need to lean your place”. The point is gender inequality is stupid and unhelpful to everyone.
So if you don’t like the way men are treated, don’t hate on feminists. Join them. We don’t like it either.

Thank you.

THANK YOU.

Never thought I would do this but I am dedicating this video to my ex husband. This Wallahe is how our son will end up if he keeps buying him all those video games. I already see the craziness over the games starting. Watch this it’s unbelievable and scary but probably true with many young adults. #gaming #videogames (Warning:graphic language)

Wtf?
(Why didn’t he grab some of the games while he was being yelled at?)

In longer than a day, I have not posted on Facebook except to inform people that I am no longer using it until I can get my name changed back. I haven’t commented on anything or liked anything, and actually had to unfollow most of my Facebook friends in order to avoid being tempted to like and comment on their posts.
(I can’t delete my account because the Facebook page I made for my book is attached to it, so I basically still have to go on there and try not to post any comments on my way to my book’s page.)
Already, I have gotten comments from people saying they will miss my posts. And I feel bad that my family members who aren’t on tumblr or twitter won’t get to see my posts (they’re the ones who wouldn’t care what name I use on Facebook, and I wouldn’t care either).
I’m so annoyed at Facebook for making me change my name. I just can’t promote things like my band under my legal name. It’s stupid.

Dude, A Great Big World is touring with Lindsey Stirling.
I saw them play at a friend’s house party 2 years ago, and since then they have gotten big and played all over the world.
And Lindsey Stirling is one of my heroes because she’s also successful as an independent artist who didn’t listen when people told her that her music wasn’t marketable.
So basically, Lindsey Stirling and A Great Big World kick ass for much the same reason.

I’m not sure why a Swedish mystery book has a whole page of dialogue about Pokemon, but the weirdest part is that the uptight, angry, tattoo-hating mother seems to know all about it and likes Mew the best.

To distract myself from the fact that I can’t see my boyfriend indefinitely, I’m going to seriously work my ass off at everything I do, more than ever.
Because sometimes life sucks, and you have to do something about it.

Facebook made me change my name on there to the legal one. I hate them. Don’t they know I have a band and other stuff to promote?

I just misread “optimism” as “opiasm”. I’m going to use that forever now.

After having no more than 4 nightmares in my whole life, I had 4 more in the past week, practically all in a row. 

I’m looking up the meanings of some of the weird shit from my bad dreams. Because I would definitely rather do that than go to bed and have more bad dreams.
I couldn’t find anything about a sorcerer in a green suit, or a movie about Eleanor Roosevelt, but whatever.

The main ones are:
-My boyfriend dying in a dream means he has qualities I want. (If that’s the meaning, I’m surprised this is the only time he’s died in my dreams)
-A car that is moving with no one driving it means I’m unwilling to take responsibility for my actions. (I still don’t know why it was a Volkswagen Beetle that was also a taxi cab.)
-Driving a car into water means I’m in for an emotional journey. 
-Driving on a mountain road means I feel like I can’t meet others’ expectations. (isn’t that the case for most people, though?)
-Having a premonition means a relationship or situation is growing and entering a new phase.
-Wielding a sword means strength, ambition, a competitive nature, decisiveness and willpower, and I want a position of authority. But the sword I was holding was melting, which probably means I have none of that, or feel like I don’t.
-Police symbolize structure, rules and authority. The fact that I dreamt about police siding with Medusa, who I have been afraid of since I was 6 and who I was trying to kill, means I was fighting against rules and authority and think they’re as bad as Medusa. It makes sense.

Did I miss anything? Does anyone have any alternates to any of those meanings? 
I really don’t want to have bad dreams anymore. I’m really not used to this.

Creepers on the MAX: Hey girl, where are you goin? You just get off work? ….Do you not talk to strangers? Yeah, I guess you shouldn’t talk to strangers.
Me: You shouldn’t, either.
Creepers: You don’t look that strange.
Me: You have no idea.

The creepers then started leaving me alone, except to talk like normal civilized human beings. I’m not sure how someone “looks strange”, anyway. That’s like my mom thinking that someone can “look like a weirdo”.

Hey guys, 

My band, She’s Not Dead, has this awesome album called Monsters in my Head. If you don’t have it, a digital download is only $5 on this site. That’s a really good deal for 13 studio-recorded songs. 

People always tell me they listen to these catchy tunes over and over in their car, and whatnot. So if you’re in need of some awesome music to brighten your day, check it out and tell your friends.
