I am sure there are lots of 17-year-olds who are ‘mature for their age,’ but they aren’t the ones who date 30-year-olds.
I swear I’m going to just have to start feeding my kids baby food again. They like 100% forgot how to eat people food today.
Self-publishing? That's boring!
booklikes: If you think that a standard self publishing is something exciting and novel, you’re so wrong! Books put in a box, tattooed and printed on toilet papers - that’s an idea. Some authors simply do it … differently. Writers can post not only on social media but also on socially accessible object, like street, doors or a … lamppost, for example. The anonymous writer decided to follow...

Anonymous asked: To the anon about handwashing sweaters - if it's wool of some kind, don't use Woolite, it ruins the fibers. Use dish soap, if not a wool wash (found at yarn stores). Run lukewarm water with a tiny bit of soap, lay it in the water, let it soak like she said. Then squeeze as much water out as possible. Don't rub it at all, you'll felt it.

Just curious to make sure it’s actually allowing foreign purchases! I know it’s shipping fine in the US and Canada, but I’ve had a few people from Europe ask if it will ship there, and I assume so but I just wanted to make sure… Is there anyone outside North America who has purchased yet and can verify this for me??

For sale: Baby shoes, never worn.– Ernest Hemingway once won a bet where he had to write a short story in six words. These were the six words. How anyone could dispute this mans genius is beyond me. (via itscandidlycara) Love this story. The story Hemingway wrote, yes, but moreso: this anecdote.
A lot of times people get frustrated with my boyfriend and I because they feel we don’t take anything seriously. We do. We take a lot of things very seriously. They’re just not things that other people take seriously, like travelling 140 miles to have a date at Waffle House during a tornado, or planning our lives around catching wild mustangs and harvesting marijuana.
