If I die today, I am probably going to hell. That bleak thought ran through my mind daily for most of April.
For someone who started this tumblr to share about God, I have gone a 180 degree turn and am an unchurched doubter.
I am scared to pick up my Bible because I don’t want to find out everything is all a lie.
If religion is opium for the masses, this cold turkey is really awful.
I want to go back to how it was, but I can never do so. Neither do I know how.
Was in the biz class lounge in Barcelona drinking cava and trying to be an adult when I saw this Spanish (?) magazine, and spent my time balancing my glass and sneakily taking photos of this.
- Learn to say exactly what it is you want from people, don’t make assumptions that people know what it is you’re thinking. You’ll save yourself a lot of heartache.
- Before making major decisions, pray/seek counsel.
- Don’t be afraid to let someone go, sometimes it’ll do you more good than you…
Bad news. A major vulnerability, known as “Heartbleed,” has been disclosed for the technology that powers encryption across the majority of the internet. That includes Tumblr.
We have no evidence of any breach and, like most networks, our team took immediate action to fix the…
When someone tells me the reason I’m burned out is because “You’re not effectively using your gifts in the right place” or “You have unconfessed issues in your life” or “You’ve neglected your own natural rhythms” — well that could all be true, but I also think I’m just a limited…
As Noam Chomsky once pointed out for Z Magazine, old media types from the institutional bodies like American Enterprise Institute tend to regurgitate the same ideas with a reliability that is equally impressive and infuriating. While assuring the public that rape is a terrible crime, writers like Caroline Kitchens and Heather McDonald of right-wing think tank The Manhattan Institute try to claim that feminists have blown this whole rape culture thing way out of proportion.
Apparently, many women disagree. On Tuesday there were more than 1 million responses on the #RapeCultureIsWhen hashtag started by a frustrated Zerlina Maxwell in response to these right-wing narratives.
Keep speaking up!!!!!

SEE WHAT THEY DO TO YOU? ALWAYS MAKE YOU FEEL ONE STEP BEHIND. ALWAYS STRIVING FOR SOME FABRICATED IDEA OF PERFECTION CONCOCTED BY THOSE WHO DO NOT CARE ABOUT YOUR INHERENT WORTH.
DON’T. BELIEVE. THEIR. BULLSHIT.
YOUR SELF-LOATHING IS THEIR PAYCHECK.
YOUR SELF-HATRED IS THEIR CHRISTMAS BONUS.
YOUR FEAR IS THEIR SUMMER HOUSE IN THE HAMPTONS.
YOU’RE WORTH SO SO SO MUCH INFINITELY MORE THAN THIS JUNK.
The question is why people are buying into this junk. Why are they believing lies?
Don’t blame the media. They are a business. If no one buys this shit, they won’t be publishing trash content.
It is time to take a stand and show the media what messages you want more of in terms of readership.
I work in the media, and it is discouraging when you try to put up positive, uplifting content and it doesn’t do as well as trashy stuff.
