  5. First time witnessing a horse fall on its rider. Horrible to watch and knowing there is nithing you can do. All I hoped for was the horse not kicking her head during the roll.

    WHENEVER YOU SEE THIS POST ON YOUR DASH, STOP WHAT YOU’RE DOING AND WRITE ONE SENTENCE FOR YOUR CURRENT PROJECT.

    Just one sentence. Stop blogging for one minute and write a single sentence. It could be dialogue, it could be a nice description of scenery, it could be a metaphor, I don’t care. The point is, do it. Then, when you finish, you can get back to blogging.

    If this gets viral, you might just have your novel finished by next Tuesday.

    It’s roughly translated that “Help me to get through all of this” or “give me strength”.

    It’s a phrase you say when you come up with something extremely stupid or frustrating or anything you don’t like. It’s not something you say this when you’re really deeply miserable or depressed and are begging for help, no. It’s something you say when you can’t handle the stupidity of the specific situation.

    For example, you’re shopping with your friend, you’ve been through millions of shops and you’re extremely tired and frustrated and your friend wants to go there, and there, and oh, there’s an interesting shop too. In that situation you could say “Anna mun kaikki kestää”.

    i hit my coworkers shoulder lightly and he was like “you’re going to make me cry like a girl” and i was like “what’s wrong with being a girl?” and he was quiet for a moment then he looked into the distance and whispered “the social standards they’re forced to live by”

    My house is strange. There’s me, i’m bisexual, and I live with my gay brother and my asexual fiance.
    My brother and I have the same taste in boys, but i’m really the only one who likes girls, and my fiance is generally just really excited about dragons.
