If I’m dating you, you don’t need to get jealous of other people. I am with you, only you. If you ever think I’m flirting with other people, I’m not. There’s a reason why I chose you and only you. I only want you, no one else. You are mine. I am yours.

I’m seriously done always worrying about every little thing. It’s time to enjoy life !

I just want to be in the ocean today. It’s been 4 years since I’ve been. The ocean makes me the happiest person alive. It makes me so happy and makes me feel peaceful. I NEED to be there. I need this. I need it. 




As of August 18th, 2014: I need a little help, Tumblr. As you know, I had to make an emergency flight home last week because my surrogate family found out Pops had Stage 4 Prostate Cancer. And we’re doing everything to improve the quality of life.

We found out we don’t need to do chemo, but can put him on a type of hormone therapy to delay the outcome and to make it less painful. But because of this, Hospice will be removing the hospital bed in the home. Hospice was already aware, prior to official diagnosis, that we would be seeking any treatment to improve quality and quantity of life. But they came on their own volition anyways, bringing a much needed hospital bed into the home. Now after two weeks, and news that we are indeed seeking treatment… they are removing the bed and stopping services.

He cannot climb stairs. He cannot sleep on a couch. He cannot sleep on the twin bed we have in the dining room for him. I’m not asking for money, I’m asking for a contact that I can speak to about bringing in another hospital bed that won’t be taken away or cost more than finances can bear. I already made calls to people I know who might be able to track down a hospital bed, but I need every ounce of help I can get.

Please reblog. Get me someone who can help my family. They took me in after my own father died from cancer 13 years ago. They’ve been a part of my life over 20 years. And I am doing everything I can to make things right for them during the hardest part of their lives. Help me give them one less thing to worry about.

Edit: I’ve gotten a lot of asks about where my family lives. I won’t disclose an official address unless I know for sure that a hospital bed is coming their way, but they live near Harrisburg, PA. Thanks to all the responses so far, whether it’s prayers or suggestions!

As of August 19th, 2014: So far, I have been unable to find an affordable hospital bed or an organization willing to donate.

It means the world to me that so many of you are reaching out to me with prayers or suggestions. Please keep passing this around. He’s in so much pain, and I am hitting a wall.

Signal boost: Can anyone help?

Signal boost the heck out of this guys ! Help them out!

A part of me wants you
in the most innocent way possible:
taking off your shoes in my bedroom,
climbing under the sheets and watching
whatever’s in my Netflix queue,
barely even touching
as we talk about our days until we
fall asleep with our
clothes still on.

But another, hungrier part of me
wants you unbuttoning your shirt
before you’re completely through my door,
falling onto my bed, and
scrambling to make your fingers
unbutton my shirt faster
Your mouth shaking out
my name the entire time. Safe To Say A Lot’s Going Through My Head When I Think About You | Lora Mathis  (via leviathanrose)

so apparently an arm can sell on the black market for $885, ($500 for the shoulder plus $385 for the hand an forearm) 

and a leg can sell for $500 (at least thats the lowest price of an albino leg so im guessing here) 

So when someone says “That’ll cost an arm ad a leg” they are roughly asking for $1,335

which is less than i would have guessed. 

i didn’t spend this much time researching the cost of limbs on the black market for one note

College is viewed as a necessity, yet priced as a luxury.

Does anyone else get nervous after they do more of a strength workout cause they don’t sweat as much as cardio? Ya, my ass is on fire but why am I not sweating as much?
