Watch Me Unravel
My childhood was the most stable one I’m aware of. My parents were married for over 30 years. We lived in the same house since I was two. When my Mom passed away in 2006, stability went out the door. We lost my childhood home in 2007 and, since then, I’ve moved around every once in a while. Yesterday, I moved to my sixth address in as many years. I hate this. Is it too much to...

Set Your Priorities
A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him. When the class began, he wordlessly picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with golf balls. He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was. The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles...

Rather than telling anyone who reads this why you should vote for the person I’m voting for, I will tell you to just get out and VOTE. This election will be a close race so every single vote matters.

Friend: Hey, Aziz, I got you a panini press off Amazon but I shipped it to my friend Lisa instead of you. Is that a problem?
Aziz: Yeah, it's a problem. That's not my address and I don't have Lisa's contact info and now you mention paninis, I really want one!
Death at a Funeral (2010)
I’m just saying everybody knows that the Colonel stole that recipe for fried chicken from a slave named Jubilai. Now I’ll give him the credit for the coleslaw but that’s it!
That’s the thing about pain…it demands to be felt.– John Green, The Fault in Our Stars (via kari-shma)
Do you ever feel like life/the universe/God/or whatever is trying to teach you a very important lesson, simply because you’ve found yourself in the same position more than once? My lesson has been this: True friends stand by your side no matter what; fake friends bail the second things get rough. Guess I didn’t learn that the first time.
I think the words “I need help” are some of the hardest to say and if you have people in your life who try to make you feel bad about yourself for being a little down-on-your-luck or needing any kind of assistance, you should ditch them ASAP and find a new group of people to surround yourself with. Life is way too short to surround yourself with people who bring you down.
The Rescuers (1977)
Faith is a bluebird you see from afar. It’s for real and as sure as the first evening star. You can’t touch it or buy it or wrap it up tight but it’s there all the same, making things turn out right.
The Five-Year Engagement (2012)
“Okay, I got a good one. How about we get a subject and then put the subject to sleep and then cover him with blood and chicken feathers and then put a gun in his hand and then scream inside of his ear?”
