take it as it comes & be thankful when it's done

tell me a story, i know you're not boring   i'm abby, and i'm younger than you think. i love myself, music, and laughing, among other things. i'm on a journey to better myself mentally, emotionally and physically. down close to 40 lbs so far from my highest weight, continuing to make healthy choices for myself, but liking how i look the whole way through. i'm a good advice giver and a shitty decision maker. i have no interest in competing with anyone. i'm very politically informed and opinionated, and very leftist. i'm a dreamer and i'm having fun getting lost. i make art which i'll occasionally share. i'm going to be a medical and environmental illustrator one day. i hate driving and love cats. chances are you don't understand my humor. please talk to me if you need or want

craving tbell so hard right now

it genuinely baffles me that men don’t want women in positions of power because “they’re slaves to their hormones/emotions” and yet one of the first lines of defence when it comes to rape cases tends to be “it’s hardly his fault look at what she was wearing how could we expect him to control himself

Gee, it’s almost as if misogyny isn’t based in logic.

I hate that so many adults scoff at me, when my answer to their “what field are you thinking of going into?” question, is, infact, art field. They shake their heads, say how ridiculous it is, how it’s just a dream. I usually back myself up by saying I’m thinking of being a medical/environmental illustrator, and they make a pretty great living around $80k/year. Then they’ll say something like “oh I guess that’s not bad.” Like yeah, I guess it’s fucking not. But so what if it was? So what if I wanted to be a freelance fine artist living on a whim, making peanuts, but doing what the fuck I want to do every day? Why would anyone make it their personal duty to discourage me from that? Why would anyone base their career path choice off of solely the amount of money they make? If you’re wanting to be something for the salary, you don’t really want to be that profession. You just want the money that profession will provide you. To me waking up everyday loving what I’m doing is far more valuable than money. I’m not going to be a cubicle dweller.
