We think too much, feel too little

youngerinmyhunger:

So, this is pretty shocking. 234 girls were abducted from their boarding school in Chibok in Nigeria on April 15th. Most of them are between the ages of 16 and 18. It is known that they were abducted by the terrorist group Boko Haram, and it is believed that the girls are being sold as wives, and are now involved in human traficking. It is even known roughly where they are being kept.
There has been very little response from the Nigerian government, in fact even telling international media that a large number had been found when they hadn’t. The Nigerian army is also very inefficient at dealing with this kind of crisis. The Nigerian people have been holding mass protests and fundraising to send out private search parties into the jungle. Now there is a call for international governments to lend a hand, these girls have done nothing to deserve to suffer at the hands of a corrupt and unjust government.

As usual with third world affairs, I’ve seen very little about this on tumblr, and there’s been an international social media campaign to raise awareness about this. Can you imagine in 234 girls went missing from the UK, USA or Europe?! If you call yourself a feminist, then you have a duty to care about women’s rights internationally, and this a pretty big infringement of those rights.

Please spread the message about this, and go and find out about it! You can sign this petition to the Nigerian President or this one to the White House.. Or you could donate to a human rights organisation such as Amnesty International, who have even set up a tumblr to show support for the girls.

I’m just shocked at the lack of media coverage this is getting, and more people need to be aware of this!

women get called melodramatic and overly emotional every time we express negative feelings, but have you ever tried telling a man “no?” They’re actual toddlers. 

This all day long.

Isn’t it great when you’re surrounded by family and all you want to do is cry because you feel like the shit someone scraped off the bottom of their shoe.


You have no idea.

I miss part of myself that almost feels lost amongst all of these adult life stresses I’ve been experiencing. 

I’m going to rediscover that part of myself, and all of my weird along the way. 

Tumblr, I’m coming back to you with a vengeance, biatch.

This is a photo of me and my dad about 15 years ago. Last week, he was diagnosed with cancer in his oesophagus. The cancer has spread, meaning he now has it in his stomach, liver and lungs aswell. The tumour has spread too much for them to even consider operating, so the only option now is chemotherapy to stop it spreading. I feel helpless not being able to do anything to do help my dad, so starting now, i’m going to raise as much money as I can for North West Cancer Research. I’ll be doing a few small fundraising events over the next few months, leading to a 10,000ft tandem skydive at the end of summer. This is the page for donations - www.virginmoneygiving.com/stephhendersonx Obviously I understand that it’s difficult for a lot of people to donate money at the moment, but if you could just reblog this and get my story out there, that would mean the world.

The only known video footage of Anne Frank

I can’t think of any reason why someone would not reblog this. 
If this isn’t interesting/sad to you, then I don’t know what you like in life.

Can’t we hit 1,000,000 notes? This is such a rare shot, everyone should see it.

Nice.

The best thing about the bedroom was the bed. I liked to stay in bed for hours, even during the day with covers pulled up to my chin. It was good in there, nothing ever occurred in there, no people, nothing.
