if you follow the paintbrush with your eyes while not moving your head, it forces you to use emdr which is a therapeutic technique to calm anxiety/panic. watching fish swim causes the same effect.
I don’t have a favorite post on Tumblr, I don’t have things that I ‘always’ reblog.
But this is one thing I love seeing on my dash, I love having it on my blog, it really helps to calm me down and its amazing.
(trigger warning for racism, violence)Post -Racial AmericaYes this is happening in 2013Just last October 2012 a story broke out nationally about Black Students being attacked with Balloons filled with Bleach at the University of Texas. Protests broke out across campus. The concept of these attacks were to “whiten” students of color.Bleach Balloons were also thrown at Asian students. These attacks were racially motivated. Well last week 5 days ago on August 21st, 2013 another Black student was hit with a bleach balloon.Byran Davis was walking by an apartment building on the west campus of the University of Texas when he was hit with a balloon filled with bleach. Luckily he was uninjured. Byron stated “”I don’t feel safe walking around West Campus by myself anymore.”
"Davis contacted the Austin Police Department, who said they’d put a detective on the case. Davis’ friends have told him not to hold his breath though; no prosecution has come from APD’s attention. Many students see no point in reporting the attacks when nothing has been done to stop them, Davis said.
That means there are many bleach bomb attacks in West Campus we don’t know about. The concept behind them is to “whiten” students of color. Bleach also blinds people. Luckily, no one has been blinded yet in West Campus. The very real possibility is hideous” (Burntorangereport.com)

This is a prime example of why I am NOT interested in staying in Texas for college.
This is sicken. Post racial society yeah ok.
this is largely why I declined a PhD fellowship in Texas.
The worst thing is that, when I was there, I learned about these attacks not from other students, or the news, but from blogs that don’t normally look at Texas.
This is why, when people try and condemn every other university in Texas as “racist” and laud UT for being awesome, I tell them it’s not. It just has better PR.
Ladies, always make sure that you bite your tongue so that he doesn’t “go ballistic”. And always remember that it will be YOUR fault if he gets upset.
Sure he should control his anger, but honestly if you actually love and care about someone you shouldn’t say mean shit to them and yes it is your fault if they are hurt by something you said out of anger.
Dudes have feelings too.
these HORRIFYING and OFFENSIVE phrases, are
"you tummy is so cute"
"do whatever you want"
"are you sure we can afford that"
the WORST one listed is, “you’re just like your dad”
and apparently these vile and unforgivable sayings are worthy of men going absolutely ballistic
yeah no… overly angry and violent dudes need to calm the fuck down or just check themselves into prison now before lashing out at women
"Dudes have feelings too."
umm…you do realize that this is an entire article basically making sure that the girlfriend doesn’t step on any one of ten eggshells that will cause her usually loving boyfriend to go into a ballistic rage. i really don’t think you have to tell us that men have feelings, the article kinda does that for you. it also dresses up our feelings as being either super calm, or a raging asshole.
not to mention these shitty magazines that publish such drivel never have anything of worth to say. just a bunch of bullshit that they try to dress as being important, making sure that girls always have the proper guidelines, lest they stray outside the danger-zone with phrases like, ”your tummy is so cute.” i mean, i’m getting ready to flip my shit right now from just reading it, heaven help whoever actually says it to me.
For a moment, I’d like to shy away from the point that people are making and look at the definition of Ballistic as taken by the Merriam-Webster dictionary:
A well known speaker started off his seminar by holding up a $20 bill. In the room of 200, he asked. “Who would like this $20 bill?”
Hands started going up. He said, “I am going to give this $20 to one of you - but first, let me do this.”
He proceeded to crumple the 20 dollar note up. He then asked. “Who still wants it?” Still the hands were up in the air.
“Well,” he replied, “what if I do this?” He dropped it on the
ground and started to grind it into the floor with his shoe. He picked it up, now crumpled and dirty. “Now, who still wants it?”
Still the hands went into the air.
“My friends, you have all learned a very valuable lesson. No
matter what I did to the money, you still wanted it because it did not decrease in value. It was still worth $20.
Many times in our lives, we are dropped, crumpled, and ground into the dirt by the decisions we make and the circumstances that come our way. We feel as though we are worthless; but no matter what happened or what will happen, you will never lose your value.
Dirty or clean, crumpled or finely creased, you are still
priceless to those who love you. The worth of our lives comes, not in what we do or who we know, but by …WHO WE ARE.
You are special - don’t ever forget it.”
This post always shows up in my life when I need to hear it most.
