Gerascophobia- the fear of growing old.
The thing I fear the most is growing old; not being able to run or swim or get up and go places, of not having any energy to do anything and looking back at my life with regret. I never want to be sent away to some nursing home and slowly lose my mind alone in a bed. I’d rather die young and happy than hooked up to some machine that was only just keeping me alive. I never want to be old and sitting in a chair watching my grand kids run around and wishing with all my heart that I could go and run with them. I’d rather die than have that happen. I never want to look in the mirror and see the old version of me when inside I feel young and when ever I see my reflection it’s a cruel reminder that my years on this planet are numbered. I don’t want to grow old and watch as everyone around me ages too, and one by one they will die and I will be left behind only with my fading memories of them when they were young and happy. I don’t want to wake up one morning wishing I could go back to the days when my life was full and my friends were alive and my mind and body were sharp. But maybe I’m not afraid of growing old. Maybe I’m afraid of being old and wishing I could be young again. Or maybe those things go hand in hand.
Client: I threw out that black pen, it was out of ink.
Me: What black pen?
Client: The one that was lying on your tablet.
Me: You threw out my $150 Wacom pen?
Client: I tried writing with it and it didn’t work. It must’ve been out of ink.
this almost made me cry
this is simultaenously the best and worst submission i’ve ever seen from Clients from Hell.

brief pause to honour the absolute brilliance of ball park music’s latest album
I took this picture for a class but I thought it was so powerful.
The beautiful girl to the left has struggled with being called slut whore skank ect because she has well double D’s.
Me, on your right, I’ve always been told especially by guys that I need to “grow bigger boobs”.
But we are who we are. She is big and I am small and that should be okay. Don’t let the world tell you what you should look like.
I am so thankful to this post.
Wildlife photographer Paul Goldstein first saw this unusually colored zebra a couple years ago at a camp he runs in Kenya and has been keeping an eye on it ever since. The animal travels alone rather than with a herd like most zebras and he always seems pissed off.
A Black Zebra with White Stripes :D

I’m sure he’d be proud too
Batwoman #32 - Bombshell variant
A man admittedly followed and killed an innocent teenager, and was declared not guilty.
States are passing laws allowing guns in public schools.
Women are losing their reproductive rights at an increasingly alarming rate.
Riots are tearing through the streets in cities all over the world.
College tuition keeps rising, sending a generation into debt as soon as they are entering the adult world.
Education funds keep getting slashed.
Privacy no longer exists.
Corporations now have the same rights as people, and the funds to actually protect them.
Through loopholes, many U.S. Corporations pay a lower tax rate than middle class families.
States are now passing more voter ID laws and similar laws that only affect the lower class.
The corporate giant, Monsanto, has pretty much purchased and bribed its way into every grocery product on the shelf, resulting in food becoming less and less like, well, food. There are reasons Cancer rates are getting worse.
Likewise, Monsanto is making sure small American farmers are ran out of business. Also, their constant pesticide use is killing bees and other insects, causing dire environmental issues.
The mass media is more concerned with pop culture and trends, than the real issues the world is facing.
Human population is ever growing, and at rapid rates. It can’t just continue this way.
We have put so much trash in giant landfills all over our world and in our oceans. We are killing our planet.
By planet you mean we are killing ourselves.
Can we also pay attention to the fact that there aren’t just political problems going on???
I mean, seriously, I have been trying to tell everyone, BUT NO ONE IS EVEN REBLOGGING THE ARTICLES THAT COULD SAVE A LIFE
While all this is happening, the Pacific Ocean is being contaminated by not just trash, but Radiation.
There was a leak in the Fukushima power plant that has now poisoned the entire Pacific Ocean.
Some think that oh, maybe it will go away with time. Sure, it will, in about 16 million years. Yes, you read that right. Due to the long half life of iodine-129, the whole ecosystem of the Pacific Coast will be contaminated pretty much forever.
Here is the radiation levels in the ocean.
Everyone needs to wake up.
The government needs to be set straight. They were hiding this information so that people don’t panic. Well, now everyone’s gonna die and not know why.
Shit is going down, and we need to make sure EVERYONE knows EVERYTHING that is happening in this place we call home.
Holy fucking shit
fukushima is one of the scariest things going on and it’s literally getting less attention than that real houswives couple who are going to prison.
whoa whoa whoa not cool guys read pls
i don’t know if the best part of this post is the excruciating sexism or the metal gear solid in the corner
