Depression does not always mean
Beautiful girls shattering at the wrists
A glorified, heroic battle for your sanity
Or mothers that never got the chance to say good-bye

Sometimes depression means
Not getting out of bed for three days
Because your feet refuse to believe
That they will not shatter upon impact with the floor

Sometimes depression means
That summoning the willpower
To go downstairs and do the laundry
Is the most impressive thing you accomplish that week

Sometimes depression means
Lying on the floor staring at the ceiling for hours
Because you cannot convince your body
That it is capable of movement

Sometimes depression means
Not being able to write for weeks
Because the only words you have to offer the world
Are trapped and drowning and I swear to God I’m trying

Sometimes depression means
That every single bone in your body aches
But you have to keep going through the motions
Because you are not allowed to call in to work depressed

Sometimes depression means
Ignoring every phone call for an entire month
Because yes, they have the right number
But you’re not the person they’re looking for, not anymore

hi what are y’all’s thoughts on the new obama campaign?

hmm

i mean i think it was p good? he’s p obviously been briefed by knowledgable staffers about rape culture basics, so i guess that’s decent. the language got a bit problematic at times but i think overall it was fine

the campaign though is really just (‘just’) a public service campaign. it doesn’t have any real teeth, it’s literally just ‘hey go sign this pledge’ so i guess, functionally, it’s an educational campaign to get more people familiar with rape culture basics

idk man i think education is defo mega valuable, esp w/r/t working to end rape culture

but like also, that this is being positioned as a campaign against sexual assault on college campuses and then NOT announcing anything with teeth specifically targeted at college administrations is really, really disappointing

there was a lot of “we’re already doing this, this, and this,” but like, clearly, what you’ve BEEN doing isn’t enough, so s t e p i t u p these college administrations need to be pressured by you big time

Garlicky Pasta with Spinach & Carrots
I started making this dish when I got bored with eating pasta with plain old tomato sauce. I was also trying to incorporate more veggies into my diet, so this worked out perfectly! The ingredients aren’t too pricey or difficult to procure, and once you get the hang of it the whole thing comes together in about half an hour.
I’m really bad at judging measurements and usually just eyeball everything when I cook, so I didn’t include any measurements here. I trust y’all to judge amounts on your own!
Ingredients:
pasta of your choice (I think penne & bow tie pasta work best here)
spinach
carrots chopped into 1- or 2-inch sticks
minced garlic
salt & pepper
Italian seasoning (or whatever pasta-friendly herbs you have on hand)
crushed red pepper (optional, for those who don’t want the extra spice)
parmesan cheese (optional)
lemon juice (optional)
Directions:
Cook pasta according to packaged directions. Drain and set aside for the time being.
In a separate frying pan or saute pan, heat some olive oil on medium heat. Throw in your chopped carrots and saute for a minute or two.
Add garlic, Italian seasoning, salt & pepper to taste, and crushed red pepper to taste. Continue to saute for another 5-7 minutes, or until carrots are tender but not mushy.
Add some handfuls of spinach (how many handfuls depends on how many people you’re feeding). Stir it around a bit for no more than a minute in order to let it wilt.
Add the pasta and cook for about 5 more minutes, stirring consistently. At this point, if you feel that the pasta looks a little dry, feel free to add a little more olive oil or butter. You can also add a little more of the seasonings if you feel that the flavor is lacking.
Turn off the heat. At this point, I like tossing in some lemon juice to add a little freshness and brighten the dish up a little. This can come from an actual lemon wedge or you can just use some lemon juice from concentrate.
Dish it out onto a plate, add a sprinkle of parmesan if desired, and enjoy!
Additional notes:
If you find chopping difficult or just don’t like doing it, I’m pretty sure you can find carrots pre-chopped at your local grocery store. I’ll often just use baby carrots and cut each one in half for these. You can also pre-chop your own vegetables on a high-spoons day so that they can be used later on a low-spoons day!
Same with the minced garlic: if you don’t like chopping your own garlic, the pre-minced kind in the jar will work just fine. 
I’m not too familiar with gluten-free cooking, but I’m sure that there are gluten-free pastas that would be a great substitute in this dish.
This is also vegan if you don’t use parmesan!
On the flip side, I’m sure this would also be great with some shredded chicken tossed in.

I think a lot of people miss that ASOIAF is an attack on loving fantasy worlds. GRRM basically goes: “Hey, do you know how you would love to live in a fantasy land of knights and castles and maidens and all that? Well, you are an idiot, Feudalism is fucking horrific and you should feel ashamed for wishing for it. Look let me show you…”

ASOIAF, to me, is a love letter to democracy, equality and all the wonderful things we have, because it reminds you how horrendous a world without them is.
