"Zeke just got home from the vet — being allergic to certain grasses, he broke out in hives and they gave him steroid and benadryl shots. This is Winston, loving and taking care of him"

A cats purr vibrates at a frequency that promotes bone health and aids in healing. So the kitty is probably trying to purr him better.

My heart..

[Image description: screenshot of Facebook photo and its comment page. Photo shows white girl displaying mehndi on her hands. The relevant comment reads, "Love it!  I like how it looks on people with light skin. The artistry stands out so much better.”] hahahaha, FUCK YOU FUCK YOU FUCK YOU. yeah everything is so much fucking better with or on white people! INCLUDING THIS! Indian bridal mehndi: sorry, desi folk, it’s nice that you came up with something so pretty, but white people just wear it better! it’s a fucking ancient practice described in the earliest Vedic texts, used during festivals and holy days and weddings. it’s a beautiful part of my culture that I love, something I linger over in old family wedding photos, something I’ve worn to temple and during festivals, something I plan to wear at my own wedding someday. and guess what, y’all? apparently, I WILL NEVER DO IT AS WELL AS WHITE PEOPLE. I experienced an honest-to-God rage blackout when I found this bullshit on my Facebook newsfeed this morning. It was in no way helped when I tried searching for mehndi photos on Pinterest, and like 50% of them were white girls. I just cannot deal with white people who decide that other cultures are so ~COOL~ and ~EXOTIC~ and want a piece. You can look, but don’t touch, okay? Just don’t. I’m glad you think that our “henna tattoos” are so pretty, but before you decide that you want to wear my culture’s clothes and body art and jewelry, before you decide that we’ve created something worthy of your notice so you’ll just swoop in and lift it wholesale, wear my fucking skin for a day.Wear my brown skin. Listen to the bullshit you hear when you wear saris and mehndi and bindis, listen to people calling you “dothead” and making fun of your accent and thinking your dad is a terrorist. Wear my brown skin under your fucking henna. You want my culture, don’t fucking half-ass it, you motherfucking white imperialist thief. Take all of it. Take the racism, take the hatred, take the bullshit. Take my wounded civilization forever marked by white imperialism and colonialism, my religion misrepresented and demonized by white missionaries. Take all of it, do you hear me?Take all of it and live with it, live with it and love it alongside the pain and grief and fear. And then fucking tell me how pretty you look in mehndi.Goddamn white people. This is why we can’t have nice things. I literally cannot check my goddamn Facebook or fuck around having some fun on Pinterest without some jackass reminding me of my place in the world, reminding me that even when my culture isn’t the object of outright derision and hatred, it’s going to be exoticized and stolen and “so much better” when it’s performed by people with white skin. These same people will naturally totally fail to understand why you’re pissed off because how it can be racist when the perpetrator just really LIKES something, they’re celebrating your culture (by stealing it, after trampling it and shaming you for it), omg WHY ARE YOU BEING SO MEAN?!

Yes. You want my culture? Take my pain with it. Being 5 years old and being told I’m going to hell because my parents are terrorists. Kids calling me “dirty” because of my skin. Crying everyday at home trying to scrub the color out of my skin. Don’t just take the wonderful things. Take the fucking pain. After all of that, then wear the fucking bindi and henna. Because that’s what keeps me going. That makes me proud of who I am. Don’t taint it with your intention to be “cultured”.

Omfgg.

Ha’a Keaulana runs across the ocean floor with a 50 pound boulder. They do this as training to survive the massive surf waves of winter. She learned her amazing skills from her dad, legendary waterman #briankeaulana and her Grandpa, #Buffalo. I was very humbled to learn from the Hawaiians who have salt water running through their veins. Mahalo Nui Loa. Please stay tuned for our upcoming story on the Hawaiian surfing culture.

Brian Keaulana taught me to surf. Amazing family.

Fucking kids care more about each other than we do

I was gone from school for two weeks after being in an accident and when i came back to school literally no one gave a fuck. I wish we can all go back to our 4 year old selves because growing up teaches us how to hate and be self centered. 

dude ^ *Snaps all around*

what?

The wheels take impact and stress off your legs, and the position helps your spine, but you’re still doing running motions instead of biking motions, so your legs are getting a good workout, and you can go for longer

nerdy shit aside, iamgine how sick it must be to just let those feet fly into the air and do superman poses down a highway

"Nerdy shit aside u can act like Superman"

“She walks with a cane, but she runs with the champions.” Ninety-nine year old Ida Keeling set a record for the 100-meter dash at the Gay Games 9 held in Akron, Ohio earlier this month. The 4-feet-6, 83 pound Great-great-grandmother and mother of four began competitive running at 67 years old after dealing with the loss of her two sons less than three years apart. To beat her depression, Ida’s daughter, Shelley, urged her to participate in a 5K race. After Ida’s first race, running became her therapy. In addition to running, Ida goes to the gym twice a week and practices yoga regularly. We are inspired by Ida’s consistency and her dedication to optimal health. via Instagram http://ift.tt/1ztCBWw

Letter from a professor:
"Do you know how eagles fly? They are too heavy to fly by just flapping their wings like other birds. Instead, they catch thermal updrafts and so they circle around as the warm air carries them higher and higher into the air. Then, after they get high enough, they leave the thermal updraft and soar…gliding without flapping their wings at all. Because of that, they can fly a huge distance without ever flapping their wings once. Eagles, strong as they are, cannot fly in their own strength. They must be carried."
"…they shall mount up on wings like eagles…"
