16. Something that represents your favorite song.

" Look at the stars,
Look how they shine for you,
And everything you do,
Yeah, they were all yellow”

Yellow by Coldplay happens to be one of my favorite songs. To me, it was always a feeling I had for an unrequited love. Yes I am a hopeless romantic, but lead singer Chris Martin says that’s what it’s supposed to be about. Also, the song to me represents the loyalty and devotion you have for someone, significant other or not. This could be interpreted romantically or not, but Its definitely praising the other person.

It also is about someone’s “Yellow,” their brilliance or inner light.

For me, now, this song is about my boyfriend Stefan. His favorite color happens to be Yellow.

Also, this reminds me of the “Golden Era” of Coldplay for myself. Sappy heartfelt lyrics that aren’t overdone, with melodies and instrumentation to create atmosphere.

Here’s Stefan and I looking at the stars that are shining for him and all things that he does, and they’re all yellow.

HERE’S JUST HOW MUCH IT PAYS TO BE CONVENTIONALLY ATTRACTIVE

We’ve come to expect impossible, even improbable standards of beauty to populate our magazines and our television shows. It’s another thing entirely to find they’ve invaded our workplace.

Watch Vox’s full video to see the many other ways these unrealistic beauty standards effect where we work.

Holy schnikes.

Then why the fuck am I so broke

my partner tried to call me a sweetheart the other day but he misspelled it and I read it as “sweetbeard” and then I decided that this is what dwarf couples call each other

so, naturally, here are two dwarves on a date
