Can we just take a minute to think about how, if I were to put up an identifiable nude picture of myself, on my own blog, taken in my own bathroom, it could come back around an ruin my life?
let’s just think about how, no matter what I do with my life - become a teacher, a lawyer, a scientist, a professor - a photograph of my naked body could render largely null and void the value that others would be willing to give to me.
It would not matter if I were a virgin - it would not matter if I meant them for a lover’s eyes only - it would not matter whether or not I did it for money - my own naked body could actually ruin my life and my work.
Can we just think about that? That is powerful, and not in a good way.—versatilequeen.tumblr.com (via corybantics)

“Books are the perfect entertainment: no commercials, no batteries, hours of enjoyment for each dollar spent. What I wonder is why everybody doesn’t carry a book around for those inevitable dead spots in life.”

I have been trying to get out and away from my computer and phone for a while. A lot of stressful events have taken place at this time in my life and I don’t need the internet as an escape.
So I’ve been climbing rocks and skinning my knees, getting sunburns and bitten by mosquitoes, conquering my fear of spiders, mastering my patience, and falling in love all over again. Picking classes for school, playing music with strangers, getting drunk in torn down buildings and making friends with passersby.
My dad may have been found not guilty for the abuse he inflicted on me, but I’m not letting that stop me from living my life and being happy. If anything, it has become a motivator for me. I stood up, I faced him in a court of law, and I didn’t break and fall back in line as the verdict was made.
I’m happy, I’m strong, and I’m not letting anything stop me anymore.
