It’s probably because I’m still feeling sick from that Panda Express and that side of asshole.
It was probably the most enraging thing I’ve ever heard someone say in a single moment. I can’t help but cringe every time I’m reminded of it, which is happening often because I also keep thinking about how much fun I had at Great Adventure today after that happened. I wish we hadn’t had to split up with some people, but I guess it was necessary since I probably would have ended up punching that guy and getting in actual legal trouble by the end of the day.
"Can’t argue with stupid."
I WISH I had said something. I wanted to say something, but nothing but rage came to mind, and I doubt he knows or cares if I heard it. I doubt he cares that we arrived where we wanted to within seconds of him uttering such garbage, and I doubt he felt any guilt for saying it. But I feel guilty because I didn’t stand up for my friends and boyfriend who were pointing the right direction. I didn’t turn around and say any of the stupid comebacks that could have come to my mind upon a moment’s consideration: “Apparently you can’t, stupid,” or, “Good thing I only keep fucking intellectuals as friends,” or actually calling him out and asking, “Exactly who do you think you’re calling ‘stupid’?” He thinks he’s smarter and better than everyone else [I mean, I’m guessing. We knew him for five fucking minutes before he went insulting us/them behind our backs], and I hate people like that so much I could take it on the road and campaign against ignorant assholes like him as if it’s my life’s sole purpose.
WELL, this ranting made me feel a lot better. I’m just glad I was able to have a good time anyway and no one got hurt. I hope one day this guy gets the crippling, emasculating kick to the balls he deserves. :]

Drew and I were in the pool and Drew said, “I’ll hold you under. If you need to breathe, tap me.” And then we took our biggest breath and went under. I kind of spaced out for a bit watching the blue water through my goggles on his face, his eyes clenched shut. I was just marveling at how time was stopped and thought, “This is fucking magical,” when Drew pulled me up because he had to breathe. I probably could have held my breath a while longer. I told him that and he was surprised until I realized, I have steroid lungs. Still wish that moment could have lasted longer.
Kacy Catanzaro: the first woman in history to qualify for Mt. Midoriyama.
I just need everyone to watch this video [x]. She’s a 5 foot, 100 lb gymnast and she beasts through this insanely difficult, heavily upper body focused course like it was her morning jog. The camera keeps cutting to these massive, musclebound men in the audience with their mouths hanging open.
OH SNAP this photoset shows those insane vertical obstacles, look at her go.
Thoughtful underwear with hidden powers. For every pair purchased you fund 7 pads to a girl in need.
OH SHIT YOU GUYS THIS COMPANY IS MAKING UNDERWEAR THAT IS STAIN RESISTANT, ANTIMICROBIAL, AND WILL ABSORB UP TO 6 TEASPOONS OF LIQUID BUT STILL LOOKS FUCKING SEXY
AND DID I MENTION THIS PART:
For every pair of THINX you buy, you help one girl in the developing world stay in school by providing her with seven washable, reusable cloth pads.
AND WHY IS THAT SUCH A BIG DEAL? HERE’S WHY:
After doing some research, Agrawal says she found that more than 100 million girls in the developing world were missing a week of school because of their periods, and using things such as leaves, old rags, or plastic bags in the place of sanitary pads.
THE SIZES RUN FROM XS TO XXL AND THE PRICES ARE NOT INSANE, THEY’RE OBVIOUSLY HIGHER THAN THOSE 5 FOR $10 SALES AT TARGET BUT YOU WON’T HAVE TO THROW THEM OUT BECAUSE YOU MISCALCULATED YOUR FLOW AND BLED ALL OVER THEM BEFORE YOU COULD GET TO A BATHROOM
I’M SORRY FOR SHOUTING I’M JUST REALLY EXCITED ABOUT THIS
LIKE HOLY FUCKBASKET IT’S ABOUT DAMN TIME
