Does anyone else find meditation panic-inducing?
Yes, sometimes. Not always- it’s easier if I have something guiding me (so long as it’s not guided imagery. I have no visual imaging in my head- I can’t picture what something looks like, even if I try very hard)- and the more I do it, the easier it’s getting. I keep trying because it does seem to help some of my other issues. But there are days that I really do not want to explore the inside of my head, even passively.Source: madeofpatterns

WARNING FOR THOSE WITH OR RECOVERING FROM EATING DISORDERS, ESPECIALLY ONES WITH OBSESSIVE COMPULSIVE HABITS, WHO ARE THINKING OF DOWNLOADING THE IOS 8 UPDATE. PLEASE REBLOG.
The new IOS8 update contains an app named Health which CANNOT BE DELETED.
The app allows you to choose which aspects of your health you choose to monitor, but available categories include “Body Measurements”, which includes body weight, and “Fitness”, which contains sections for…
Eesh. Glad I’m not using Apple products, because there are definitely times this would not be a good thing for me.Source: spoopynorthernbaby

I had assumed this would be common knowledge/common sense, but in case I was wrong, here is a thing you should know.
DO NOT EVER EVER EVER SEND A PHOTO OF YOURSELF WITH YOUR RESUME. I mean unless it’s a modeling job or something. But just. Don’t. Most companies have an automatic…
Yes, this. Also, if you list community involvement on your resume and said involvement gives away a protected status, generalize it without listing the part that could be problematic. I personally leave my Girl Scout Gold Award on my resume because my name isn’t ambiguous and they’re already going to assume I’m a woman (which is correct in my case) and there’s no other way to describe what I want to say. I do mask the fact that the tutoring program I volunteer with is church based. It still demonstrates my experience without opening doors I may not want opened at that stage of the process.Source: jadelyn

I’ve decided to design a line of clothing, and I’m going to call it It Has Pockets. It’s going to be a line of simple dresses and skirts and every single one will have fucking pockets.
We should be funding this
Real pockets too. Not those shallow useless pockets
Oh, and the pockets shouldn’t go all sticky-out on your hips. Like, they’d lay flat.

EXCEPT THIS ISNT JUST A FUNNY HAHA SILLY HEADLINE GUYS
this is really important and is a really great program that teaches skills to inmates and allows them to basically receive group therapy while they are simultaneously learning a craft
IT IS ALSO REALLY RADICAL BECAUSE IT BREAKS NOT ONLY THE STEREOTYPE THAT INMATES ARE INCAPABLE OF BEING DECENT HUMAN BEINGS WHO CAN TALK OUT THEIR ISSUES AND HEAL AND BE FUNCTIONING MEMBERS OF SOCIETY BUT IT ALSO SHOWS THAT TRADITIONALLY GENDERED HOBBIES LIKE KNITTING ARENT JUST “FOR WOMEN” AND ARE ENJOYABLE FOR EVERYONE.
here is an from the above article
They started by knitting comfort dolls, which they gave to children removed from their homes because of domestic issues. Then they moved on to hats for kids at the inner-city elementary school many of the prisoners attended, Zwerling says. “If you look at them, they’re covered with tattoos, they’re rough looking, and many of the young guys don’t have all their teeth,” she says. “But it doesn’t feel rough. They’re very respectful and grateful and very happy to knit.”
THEY KNIT COMFORT ITEMS FOR ABUSED KIDS. THEY KNIT HATS FOR INNER-CITY CHILDREN.
this is a good program and i really hope that people actually look into it rather than just posting the headline and a silly image attached ok
original article - x
Seriously go read that article.

GUYS I CAN’T STOP LAUGHING
That is so adorable.
Oh honey no.
It’s finally happened
*collapses to the floor in a pile of helpless giggling*
*wipes tear from eye* The great part of this is that even if this post turns out to be a fake, someone in the world has already said it for real.
Bahahahahahahaha. Where to even begin….love the line “When people were happy with themselves”
Somebody has a very…skewed version of what it was like to be a teenager in the 90s. Um. Not really so much.
