I fight evil by moonlight and win love by daylight. Then I write about it.
I reblog the things that inspire me most.
(And the things that make me laugh.)

Sometimes, I am a really big loser. I come across surveys on my dash, and knowing I probably can’t get anyone to ask me any of the questions, I open a word pad document and fill out all the answers, and they never get posted.
Please tell me I’m not the only one who does this.
You're going to Japan?! Ahh I love it there. I was born there but haven't had the chance to go back in awhile. You're going to love it. So jealous!!!!
I’m obsessed with Japanese culture, so I specifically requested to go to Japan. If you came off Anon, you could tell me all about it since you were born there, and it seems you get to visit from time to time. I’m so curious! Wikipedia can only tell me so much. (:
what the heck do you do for a living that you can afford all that as a college student?
What do you mean? Cumulatively, everything added up to just under $500, which with a minimum wage job is two weeks’ worth of work. I know how to save my money, and have always been economical with monetary decisions. I waited for all these things to go on sale before purchasing them, so I feel that should be some kind of indicator.
Also, I proofread papers and tutor in English to make money. Tutoring gets me $10 an hour, and proofreading gets me $10-$15 a paper (depending on length and time allotted to edit), so I make a decent amount of money doing something I love. I think everyone should try and use their talents to earn income, don’t you think? (:
So basically, I got all the big ticket items I have been pining over and saved about $300. I am stoked about this, okay. Now I have to go attack Urban Outfitters. WEEEE!
“There were pieces of my family all over the road… I picked up those pieces from the road and from the truck and wrapped them in a sheet to bury them. Do the American people want to spend their money this way, on drones that kill our women and children?”
Miya Jan, a 28-year-old farmer who found the the burning frame of his cousin’s blue pickup truck after a U.S. drone strike in Afghanistan. Inside, he said, he recognized the mangled remains of his brother, his brother’s wife and their 18-month-old son. Jan and other villagers say 14 people were killed in the attack; U.S. and Afghan officials place the toll at 11. | Afghans describe relatives’ deaths in recent U.S. drone strike (via fotojournalismus)
