Harlan Coben is one of the best mystery writers in the genre imo. The plot twists in his books are so unreal and I mean that in the best way possible! I never see them coming.

I was just sat on the carpet reading with Max and I put my book down for a second. He got up and stretched in front of it and then sat down. I thought that I’d try to get some cute pics and then he started pulling the book towards him so he could sniff it, particularly the tassel on my bookmark. He seemed to like it because he claimed it with his paw. The last picture is his reaction to me asking if I could have my book back.

men’s insistence that they should be allowed to stare at women with impunity simply because we have the audacity to exist near them with breasts and asses and legs is a pretty basic facet of rape culture, wherein our bodies are assumed to be perpetually available to them to leer at, touch, or comment on.

i love this photo because at first you think that she was going to get married but instead her husband to be left her, or something like that. but actually its quite the opposite. i clicked on the source and it brought me to an article explaining the story behind this photo, and shes not crying, shes hungover. her and her husband went to a football game on their wedding day, and got extremely drunk and partied all night. they took the subway home because they couldn’t drive. so no, its not a sad heartbreaking story, its a crazy joyful one. which in my opinion makes the picture even more amazing.

As I look back on my life, I realize that every time I thought I was being rejected from something good, I was actually being re-directed to something better. Steve Maraboli (via onlinecounsellingcollege)

At this point the ingroup has already determined that:

1. Autism is the enemy.
2. People with Autism are ‘absent’, ‘stolen’, ‘soulless’ and otherwise subhuman.
3. Autism makes people dangerous.
4. Anyone with Autism who denies that Autism is the enemy is also the enemy.
5. Autism can “get you”, any time, any where, any one- it must be stopped.
6. Autism must be eradicated, by any means necessary.

And, in its twisted logic, the conclusion is clear: the life of a person with Autism is not equivalent to the life of a person who does not have it. How, then, is it difficult for them to conclude that:

7. Violence towards those with Autism, in the efforts of eradicating Autism, is justifiable.

And just like that, the moral paradigm has shifted, and what would have been considered horrific under any other circumstance is considered completely “understandable”.

I’ve been running around since this morning, and now it is finally pajama time. There are really very few things better than pajama time at the end of a long, eventful day.

A Wolf Called Romeo | A newly published book by Nick Jans

The unlikely true story of a six-year friendship between a wild, oddly gentle black wolf and the people and dogs of Juneau, Alaska
No stranger to wildlife, Nick Jans had lived in Alaska for nearly thirty years. But when one evening at twilight a lone black wolf ambled into view not far from his doorstep, Nick would finally come to know this mystical species—up close as never before.

A Wolf Called Romeo is the remarkable story of a wolf who returned again and again to interact with the people and dogs of Juneau, living on the edges of their community, engaging in an improbable, awe-inspiring interspecies dance and bringing the wild into sharp focus. At first the people of Juneau were guarded, torn between shoot first, ask questions later instincts and curiosity. But as Romeo began to tag along with cross-country skiers on their daily jaunts, play fetch with local dogs, or simply lie near Nick and nap under the sun, they came to accept Romeo, and he them. For Nick it was about trying to understand Romeo, then it was about winning his trust, and ultimately it was about watching over him, for as long as he or anyone could.

Written with a deft hand and a searching heart, A Wolf Called Romeo is an unforgettable tale of a creature who defied nature, and thus gave humans a chance to understand it a little more. []

it’s not your job to entertain him by sending him nudes

it’s not your job to satisfy him sexually because he’s horny

you are not required to do anything that makes you feel uncomfortable or that you don’t want to do

don’t be scared of “loosing him”

he most likely wasn’t anything worth keeping
