This is you. This is where all your thoughts are kept. Every other part of your body is used to protect and sustain this. 

I want to cry

it’s weirdly comforting to know that all of the meaningless bullshit society judges me on is just a meatsuit made to support the terrifying tentacle beast that is my true form (◡‿◡✿)

THAT LAST COMMENT. BAM.

Well, as awesome as tentacle beasts that we all are, this actually is the nervous system, aka our nerve endings, which yes are protected by our flesh and bones (the central column is completely contained within our spinal column, and then the spidery bits come out from between the vertebrae)…but the thoughts are only kept in the brain, and these are just pathways from the brain, like superhighways bringing in all the sensations we experience from our external body. All the commands come from the brain as it extends down through the nervous system, but technically you don’t think with the nerve endings. 
I’m sorry, I just have done some basic research on this, because of things for art related to it, and the nervous system is amazing, and the impulses sent to and fro and how easily they can be disrupted and totally eff you up. Cause you to no longer be able to walk, etc.
These types of things highly affect me because my mom dealt with pain constantly in the last years of her life, and that was with medicines like darvocet, percocet, muscle relaxers, a duragesic pain patch, and other meds. With all of that she would sometimes still scream in pain. And there is a lot I don’t know, but I do know something was wrong with her nerves, and something was wrong with her spine.
I just think everyone should be CLEAR that its your brain that controls the system and thinks, not the other way around. And when there is a break in it somewhere well you’re kind of fucked. And there are all these tiny neurons that literally no one knows how they work. There is very little information we know about how the brain functions and the pathways and what it actually looks like in our brains, especially when its functioning.
The brain remains one of the greatest mysteries, and okay I admit it I’m fascinated by this subject matter in general. However remember I’m no expert so…go look up this stuff yourself and educate yourself on it. Its really fascinating.

Girl is pioneer at quarterback for Florida High School

That first picture just fills me with such joy and a feeling of hope.

HEY ERIN HEY!

It’s the last picture that gets me. Her eyes are off reading the defense, because she’s not handing off to the RB, that’s a fake. She’s the QB and she’d doing her goddamn job and she’s doing it well. GET IT GIRL.

“Everybody says, ‘What happens when she gets hit?’ ” Gatewood said. “This isn’t a knock on Erin, but she’s bigger than 10 kids on my team. I have a wide receiver that weighs 25 pounds less than her. And the pads she wears are the same as the pads he wears.”

theres a post going around “imagine a high school romance movie about a girl who works her ass off to play on the football team and eventually becomes the quarterback and she dates one of the cheerleaders” well thats this girls life basically. the cheerleader in the top picture is her girlfriend.

okay, she’s even more badass for being ACCEPTED AS A QUARTERBACK AND a lesbian in high school. That’s HUGE. I hope she gets drafted and enters the NFL.

Uhm. Source on the girlfriend thing? Because I’m calling bullshit. The article’s caption on that picture is just: Quarterback Erin DiMeglio getting a hair adjustment from Gabby Mele, a cheerleader, at a scrimmage last month in Loxahatchee, Fla. And there’s nothing else that I can find on google about her being a lesbian.

I saw another version of this on my dash, without any names or article links, and like all it said was she was a quarterback and the cheerleader was her girlfriend. I agree, we need to fact check before we propagate things about people.

The fact that she is the first QB in High School (in Florida at least) that is female, is more than enough. Why tack on the story about her and the cheerleader? Seriously people.

or even more easy way?

step 1

This is what we have in Finland.

America has those too. They’re a version of our half gallon of milk. Similarly, we also have half gallons that look similar to the gallon above, but just scaled down, like the size of Finland’s

Also, that is the cutest milk carton I have ever seen!

I was talking today to the person I trust most in life. Literally the only person I trust 100%.  I sent her a text that told her how much she truly meant to me, and apparently it freaked her out majorly, because I get a call from her and shes like “I read that and I was like are you dying??! are you in the hospital????”

After I assured her that I was fine, she was like, that was beautiful and I just never heard you talk like that. And then she was like I feel exactly the same.

Which just made my whole outlook on life better because she’s who I trust implicitly. I know she will be there no matter what even if I piss her off royally because, she will be pissed give me what for maybe have space for like a month, but our friendship is something I trust more than anything else. Like we can literally survive anything and have survived many fights and have had times when we didn’t talk to each other. She is my sister by everything but blood, and just.

Talking to her has made me feel so much better than anything else could I think.
