While everyone is hollering for a whammbulance because omg the Blue Angels are gonna really mess up traffic on the precious I-90, we’d like to remind you that at their very core the Blue Angels are fucking terrible.

Blue Angels are the prestigious, porn-loving chauvinist air squad of the…

Uh. Wow. Over-reaction much? The only thing more annoying than the engine noise is people bitching about it. Same as every damn year.

I see what you did there, complaining about the engine noise while establishing yourself as better than those who complain about the engine noise.

Also uh, that wasn’t about the engine noise — it’s the glorification of the military-industrial complex. Much different than engine noise.

BUT WHILE WE ARE TALKING ABOUT ENGINE NOISE, there’s also, like, PTSD. So, y’know. More than inconvenient engine noise for a lot of folks who served.

No more ridiculous than claiming that all the people who like the Blue Angels are horrible people. Asinine article, asinine point. As long as the Blue Angels have been in town there have been people bitching about them for a variety of different reasons - they aren’t going away for any of those reasons because the vast majority of people simply enjoy a fucking air show. Make a moral point of it if you want to but don’t make a mass judgement about your entire fucking city just to get people to read your article. 

It’s hyperbole, dude. So you only take issue with the headline? Not like, the content? I mean, I don’t agree with a literal interpretation of our headline, but I think it’s solid.

A Very Sick Person Who Was Never Sick Enough

Dear young person,

The thing that I want to stress, which most adults won’t tell you, is that if it feels bad, it probably is.

Regardless of whether or not adults say it is. Regardless of whether or not you qualify. Regardless of whether or not it’s diagnosed, or…

Love this broad so much.

You Don't Have to Talk About It

Hey, little sister or brother. If something has happened to you. If someone has hurt you, or is hurting you. If someone is making you uncomfortable every day, if someone is doing something to your body—I hope you have someone to talk to. Somebody you trust. Maybe somebody who…

7/11 breathing. A skill to use for anxiety. It’s recommended to do it for 10-15 minutes. Like any other skill it does require a lot of practice. I advice that you practice it when you are feeling calm so you are ready in a time of need. If you lose count, which is easily done, simply start again until you do 15 minutes. It will also help with distraction even if you don’t get it right the first hundred times.

Breathing out longer than you breathe in actually activates your parasympathetic nervous system!
Anxiety is your sympathetic nervous system (“fight or flight”) setting off all the alarms, while breathing like this will set the parasympathetic system (“rest and digest”) into action shutting off the alarms and settling your nerves.
Other things that help: laughing, checking out what’s going on around you (moving head and eyes to orient to your surroundings), getting curious about something.
Take care, be safe.

Please use this, guys, it can really help calm you while being triggered and when you’re in a stressful environment.

I also find breathing while counting up and down from five with my fingers really useful. &lt;3 Tumblr, you&#8217;re so great sometimes.

Balancing on the Curb

When I was a teenager, I had this boyfriend, although he wasn’t a teenager for most of it. We met in class when I was a freshman in high school—he was a second-year senior—when I had a different boyfriend, and he was so supportive, fun, and protective when that…

We had lit candles and were sitting in a circle. I don’t remember whose turn it was or what question they asked, but I know that Samara picked Truth and that was why she had to tell us. She said her dad had been doing things to her—I don’t remember exactly what those…
