Growing apart doesn’t change the fact that for a long time we grew side by side; our roots will always be tangled. I’m glad for that.

1. He was the first to hold my waist and tell me I was beautiful, he looked at me like I was the world, but I wasn’t, I was a game for him and he got bored after a few turns
2. He couldn’t handle my fire, he wanted me, but not the me who yelled and spoke her mind, he wanted the one who put her hands in her lap and kept her mouth shut, she was never real and neither was our love
3. He smiled and blushed when I said his name, he held me tight when I cried, he always called me back, and he smelled like strawberries, but for the life of me I couldn’t fall for him
4. He was the first I found that could keep up with me, we spoke in a language no one but us could understand, fast tongues and quick wit, but you can only fight fire with fire for so long before you get ashes, our dalliance burned to the ground and so did we
5. He was exciting and good hearted, he needed me, he cared for me, he told me everything would be okay even when I knew it wouldn’t be, his smile lit up rooms, he was the one that got away

Fuck, this is too much truth. Fuck.

I think everything in life is art. What you do. How you dress. The way you love someone, and how you talk. Your smile and your personality. What you believe in, and all your dreams. The way you drink your tea. How you decorate your home. Or party. Your grocery list. The food you make. How your writing looks. And the way you feel. Life is art.

A vintage NASA-commissioned Rick Guidice painting gives a cutaway view of the inside of a space colony design known as the Stanford torus, a proposed habitat that would house 10,000 to 140,000 permanent residents. The rotating, doughnut-shaped ring could have a diameter of around 2 kilometers, revolving once per minute to give about 1.0g of artificial gravity on the inside of the ring through centripetal force. A massive system of mirrors would provide the sunlight needed for daily activity, agriculture, and so forth. (NASA Ames Research Center)

Tbh money would solve all of my problems right now like I could move out and pay for school and take care of my mental health and overall I would just be happy and in a better place so I get really annoyed when people are like “money can’t make you happy” uh you obviously never experienced financial instability and dependence so please shut the fuck up you pretentious shit.

why is Ursula shunned from King Triton’s society? does it have something to do with being more powerful than him? why does King Triton have a magical trident, being otherwise a pretty regular merman? Ursula is a witch, if anyone should have a magical artifact it should be her, did King Triton steal it?
and finally, Ursula didn’t do Ariel much wrong
Ariel wanted some legs (and a vagina) and Ursula told her flat out that in the surface world you can have a vagina or a voice, not both
i’d watch the hell out of a movie about Ursula

“Ursula told her flat out that in the surface world you can have a vagina or a voice, not both”
ohhhh shit though, ursula was being too real about the world
although perhaps a bit too literal

Okay, these were all excellent points and I’ll never see The Little Mermaid the same way again.

I laughed at that caption at first then the reality actually hit me

you can have a vagina or a voice, not both”


Bruh… Little mermaid was deep.

Ursula gave the game to Ariel:
"The men up there don’t like a lot of blather.They think a girl who gossips is a boor. And on land it’s much preferred for ladies not to say a word, and she who holds her tongue gets a man.”
^^^
Literally the whole song “Poor Unfortunate Souls” was Ursula asking Ariel if she was sure that was the kind of life she wanted. She told Ariel EXACTLY what to expect and exactly what would happen should she fail to uphold her end of the bargain. Ursula was 100% honest with her. Ariel STILL said yes because she was naive.
And notice Eric wasn’t too distraught about Ariel not having a voice during their time together? After he got over the initial shock, he was like “Okay, cool, I’LL do all the talking and you just look pretty.”
Can we get a whole line-up of movies about our villains, though? I really am more interested in their backstories than anything.

Omg, ok, you guys. I seriously wrote a paper in college about how cultural themes of America in the 80s were reflected in Disney movies of the era and the bulk of the paper was about The Little Mermaid. Ursula was everything that society at the time was afraid of - she was unapologetically fat [this was during the yuppie fitness craze - do you even know how much the amount of gyms in America skyrocketed in the 80s?], modeled after a drag queen [uh hello ambiguous gender roles!] and she was banished from even the ~regular~ part of the sea. There are three worlds in The Little Mermaid: above the surface, below the surface, and where Ursula lived. She was the outcast of the fucking outcasts. And the whole “Ariel gives up her voice to get legs” can TOTALLY be read as a metaphor for women [outcasts - mermaids - who live in the ‘outcast’ realm under the sea] who enter the workforce [the ‘man’s world’ represented by the world above the surface] and have to put up with sexist bullshit to try to get ahead!

Dude I was going to pierce this girls inner lip today and she hadn't shaved in like 5 years hahaha it was so gross. Does this ever happen to you?

I’ve got a kookie idea here; stop being a fucking asshole. Be a fucking adult and realize that hair in places where hair grows is nothing to even think about. Then be a professional and understand that it’s not your business and stop looking at your clients like pieces of meat. That person trusted you to do a piercing with a professional attitude. How dare you violate that trust by running your mouth about your bullshit standards. It’s a part of the natural human anatomy. Grow the fuck up. I feel bad for any person who gets pierced by you.

If you cannot respect the body of another person and what choices they make regarding personal grooming, then you should not be placing your hands on anyone. This is utterly disgraceful. A client entrusted you with an intimate service, and you broke that trust by gossiping about them. Completely unprofessional. You are no colleague of mine.

This just in: Humans are mammals and actually grow hair.

After the break: Sky is blue, water is wet.

But seriously, piercers that talk shit about their clients having body hair, or being fat, or whatever, just makes me fucking sick. Stop it. YOU are the reason why I have so many people coming in to see me, ashamed of things their bodies do naturally. Guess what, some people are fat, and some choose to leave their body hair natural (hairy, fat piercer bitch right here, folks!), and also vulvas have a smell. If you can’t deal with that, you’re in the wrong career, so maybe go ahead and grow up.

Amen

Seriously, you have ONE JOB, and it is to make people feel better about themselves, to make them feel pretty. You are failing as a piercer as you obvisously don’t even understand the essence of your job. 

People, please remember that this person does not represent what body piercers stand for, and that you should never have to worry about being judged or gossiped about, ever. Love your body and adorn it the way it pleases you!

I love everyone commenting on this post.
