memes are people too
I stumbled upon this video a long time ago and it honestly made me feel a lot better.
"If you’ve never failed, you’ve never lived."
I could not fit everyone mentioned in the video in this post so be sure to give the video a look.
As someone who fails regularly, I find such comfort in this!
I like this a lot. My college creative writing teacher refused to read the revisions I had done on my stories because he said he knew I was a B student and that wasn’t going to change.
Stephen King’s college writing teacher didn’t think he was very good. My college writing class thought my writing was “babyish” and “stupid fairy tales.” The original teacher didn’t care for me, but she developed medical problems and was replaced by David Bradley, Jr., who made it plain he believed I had what it took. I don’t do writing classes or groups anymore, but I’m still in touch with Bradley, one of the finest writers I’ve ever read.
montana, soy sauce isnt a food. its a condiment. is montana eating soy sauce by itself. montana what the fuck.
the more i look at this the more i feel like the criteria of this twitter search is kinda silly like. colorado just has “vinegar”. illinois has “yolk”. arkansas is fucking “entree” that is not an actual specific food and this data analysis is flawed

This is what I imagine every time I look down the British tag.
as a British person I’m gonna admit I feel this way about American boys
Wait people actually find Americans attractive?
ARE YOU KIDDING SOME OF THE MOST ATTRACTIVE PEOPLE I KNOW ARE AMERICANS
Obviously you have never been to America. Please point out all these attractive boys of which you speak.
TELL US YOUR SECRET BECAUSE I’VE NEVER FOUND ONE. THEY ARE LIKE MAGICAL MYTHOLOGICAL CREATURES
America and Britain are these two countries that just go around talking shit, upturning their noses, then secretly writing in their diaries about how hot the other country is when no one is looking, and I love it.
I’m trying to figure out which one of us is Harry and which one is Malfoy.
Oh I just love these types of convos
so my plan for halloween is to dress up as a Nazgul with my black horse and go trick or treating but instead of saying “trick or treat” i’ll either scream or hiss “Bagginssssssssss, Shhhhhhhire” and then ransack their villages in my search for the One Ring
i was joking
oh dear god
HOW MANY PEOPLE DID YOU TERRORIZE
well.. that was a pleasant plot twist
I’ve actually done this to people
The woman on the left is a mother from Miami who was so desperate to feed her hungry family that she was trying to steal a lot of food.
The woman on the right is Miami-Dade County Police Officer Vicki Thomas. Officer Thomas was about to arrest Jessica Robles but changed her mind at the last minute.
Instead of arresting her, she bought Robles $100 worth of groceries:
“I made the decision to buy her some groceries because arresting her wasn’t going to solve the problem with her children being hungry.”
And there’s no denying they were hungry. Robles’ 12 year old daughter started crying when she told local TV station WSVN about how dire their situation was:
“[It’s] not fun to see my brother in the dirt hungry, asking for food, and we have to tell him, ‘There is nothing here.’”
Officer Thomas says she has no question that what she did was right:
“To see them go through the bags when we brought them in, it was like Christmas. That $100 to me was worth it.”
But Officer Thomas did have one request:
“The only thing I asked of her is, when she gets on her feet, that she help someone else out. And she said she would.”
And guess what? The story gets even better.
After word got out about what happened people donated another $700 for Jessica Robles to spend at the grocery store.
And then best of all a local business owner invited her in for an interview and ended up hiring her on the spot as a customer service rep.
She started crying when he told her:
“There’s no words how grateful I am that you took your time and helped somebody out. Especially somebody like me.”
And to think it all started with one veteran police officer trusting her “instinct” instead of going “by the book”.
