Many people believe every age marks something significant, that you should accomplish a certain something by a certain time. Your first kiss, losing your virginity, getting married. Learning to drive, knowing what you want to be, succeeding in your goals. But that’s not true. Let things just happen. Make sure you’re ready. Stay wise. Give yourself time to develop. There is no rush to live. Unknown (via perfect)

Anonymous said: This may sound weird, but how do you know she is THE one? I'm going to explain myself. I've been with this girl for 4 months (yes, I know,it's not enough time to be sure,I'm only 20,she's my first love,and all those clichés).I've been with other people but she is the first person I fall in love with. She makes my life one million times better we have talked about our long term future and spending the rest of my life with her would make the happiest girl in the world.How can I be sure this is it?

I don’t think you can accurately tell, in the present time, who is THE ONE and who isn’t. That is something that only time can tell, you know? I believe in knowing, right now, that that is the person you want to be with, that you want to build a future with, a life and a home and everything that comes with. And you know what? That takes a hell of a lot of work. 

I think being ‘the one’ or not is a little bit irrelevant in the present. I think you need to find the person who makes you want to be better, to make the world better for, with whom you can plan a future. The person with whom you WANT to work, relationship-wise. 

I know this is a bit of an unromantic view on it, but I do believe in it. And I think that if you’re with someone who does make your life better, who makes your world shine brighter, you should cherish them and do your best to keep them. Just don’t worry about labels — they don’t really matter, in the present time. And to be honest, the present time is the only time you should be living in. :)

Fade to Black (by Ana Luísa Pinto [Luminous Photography])

[Every week, there will be a letter, going through the order of the alphabet. Every Monday, I’ll open the Chambers Compact Dictionary and I’ll randomly pick a page of the said letter. Out of that page, I’ll randomly pick a word. And every Friday, there will be a picture based on that word. 

Welcome to the Alphabet Tales. ]

Week #26

Letter ZZero, ze’ro n. cipher; nothing; the point from which the reckoning begins in scales, such as those of the barometer; exact time (hour, minute and second) fixed for launching an attack of beginning an operation. 

——

Sooooooo. This is it. The Alphabet Tales end here, today, right now. 

And I have a few thank you notes to spread around:

Thanks to my big, fabulous, noisy family, who didn’t look at me too weirdly when I covered myself in fake blood that wouldn’t come out for three days. In all seriousness, I couldn’t have done this project if I didn’t have their support, both in spirit and in objects that I stole and couldn’t find a way to put back (have you managed to fit all the keys with the right locks, Grandma?)

Thanks to my friends, especially those of you who helped out with photos, with moral support, with pushing me on when I really didn’t think I should continue this project. Both online and offline, you were an inspiration and a joy to work with and  for. 

Thanks to all of the people who followed, commented, liked, favorited and shared this series. It became a lot more than I expected, and I hope the next step that it’ll take (I’ll tell you all about it when it’s all arranged) can also count on your support. In all seriousness, few things feel as frustrating and disheartening as thinking that you’re working for no one, that your work isn’t seen; I didn’t feel that, at all. You guys made it possible to me to hold my head high and keep going with your kind words and one-click-acknowledgements. Thank you, thank you, thank you. 

Lastly, to my M, who was there every step of the way, who was always the one to say ’stop’ when I wanted to sort the words, who was always the first to see the results and to endure countless hours of ‘I HATE THIS PHOTO’. None of this would have been possible without you, love. 

Thank you for being here, and I hope to keep seeing you around! From now on I’ll be posting random self-portraits that I have stocked up — at least until I find another series to work on. 

Have a wonderful weekend!

Some stories stay with us forever

idopaint-themgreen:

the-fury-of-a-time-lord:

lgbtqblogs:


Two brides have become two of the most kickass women in the world by marrying to protest against homophobia in Russia.
Alina Davis, a 23-year-old trans woman, and Allison Brooks, her 19-year-old partner, donned matching white floor-length bridal gowns and married at a civil registry office earlier this month.
As Davis is still legally regarded as male, the office had no choice but to hand them a marriage certificate.
The couple said officials chided them, and appeared to be violent.
‘She called us the shame of the family and said we need medical treatment … I was afraid my pussycat [an affectionate pet name in Russian] would beat the fuck out of her,’ Davis said on her VK page.
But the couple were allowed to sign the papers, meaning a gay couple in Russia are legally recognized as married – even if it’s through a loophole. ‘This is an important precedent for Russia,’ Davis said.
Russia banned same-sex marriage and outlawed ‘gay propaganda’ in 2013.


holy jesus look at these two warrior princesses
they are my heroes
YOU GO GIRLS

"Oh, you don’t wanna recognize my gender? Okay then lol guess you have to recognize my marriage"

Was on twitter and saw this.
How incredibly true.

We’re working on that right now. But it’s very hard to change your own brain’s wiring. So it will take time. But we’re working hard, and I’m optimistic (harhar) that we will make it! ;)

Yes, we will. :)

Time Slice by Richard Silver

The idea behind the “Time Sliced” Project was to photograph iconic world buildings at sunset and capture the changing light from day to night in a single image. Experimenting with a few different kinds of processes I came up with the “Sliced” idea. I decided to Slice time and light showing the progression of the day from left to right.
