One note = one vote in our heart. Like or reblog to vote! Go Australia!
The Fault in Our Stars is going national! Shailene Woodley, Ansel Elgort, Nat Wolff, and John Green will be traveling the United States and they will visit the 10 states with the most notes on the corresponding post. Want to make sure they remember that they have fans outside of USA? Demand the stars come to Australia! Just like and reblog this GIF, and spread the word: each note on Tumblr equals a higher chance this post gets seen. The post that has the most votes by April 25 will receive a visit from The Fault in Our Stars tour, but what if one of them happened to be for a different country?
That’s the thing about Australia… It demands to be felt.
On Monday I shall be shaving my head to raise money for the Leukaemia Foundation, as part of The World’s Greatest Shave. So far my team and I have raised over $1,500, and we’re hoping to get up to at least $2,000. If you can donate it would be so appreciated, it’s a great cause and even the…
Guys, that’s me ^ Please follow the link and consider donating, it’s a great cause :)
"Yesterday, I spent 60 dollars on groceries,
took the bus home,
carried both bags with two good arms back to my studio apartment
and cooked myself dinner.
You and I may have different definitions of a good day.
This week, I paid my rent and my credit card bill,
worked 60 hours between my two jobs,
only saw the sun on my cigarette breaks
and slept like a rock.
Flossed in the morning,
locked my door,
and remembered to buy eggs.
My mother is proud of me.
It is not the kind of pride she brags about at the golf course.
She doesn’t combat topics like, ”My daughter got into Yale”
with, ”Oh yeah, my daughter remembered to buy eggs”
But she is proud.
See, she remembers what came before this.
The weeks where I forgot how to use my muscles,
how I would stay as silent as a thick fog for weeks.
She thought each phone call from an unknown number was the notice of my suicide.
These were the bad days.
My life was a gift that I wanted to return.
My head was a house of leaking faucets and burnt-out lightbulbs.
Depression, is a good lover.
So attentive; has this innate way of making everything about you.
And it is easy to forget that your bedroom is not the world,
That the dark shadows your pain casts is not mood-lighting.
It is easier to stay in this abusive relationship than fix the problems it has created.
Today, I slept in until 10,
cleaned every dish I own,
fought with the bank,
took care of paperwork.
You and I might have different definitions of adulthood.
I don’t work for salary, I didn’t graduate from college,
but I don’t speak for others anymore,
and I don’t regret anything I can’t genuinely apologize for.
And my mother is proud of me.
I burned down a house of depression,
I painted over murals of greyscale,
and it was hard to rewrite my life into one I wanted to live
But today, I want to live.
I didn’t salivate over sharp knives,
or envy the boy who tossed himself off the Brooklyn bridge.
I just cleaned my bathroom,
did the laundry,
called my brother.
Told him, “it was a good day."
