If I could float away to a peaceful place. By myself, away from pain, away from fear, and full of joy. Then I would be full of warmth and complete.
I would be okay.
Grandfather is a complete nightmare. Also is very close to killing my pets and hitting me. He threw my cousin out of the house because he thought he was an informant for the Syrian government.
Also, my cousin asked me “When do you want to get married?”
I’m going to lose it.
If someone ever tells you a certain song is important to them you should turn it up and lay on your bed and close your eyes and really listen to it even if its 10 minutes long because at the end you will know that person much better I think
My love for this post is unbelievable.
watching this report on sexual harassment in egypt and im caught between laughing and crying because of how absurd it is
interviewer says, “what kind of clothes would make you NOT harass a woman?”
men say, “well if she’s wear a loose abaya or a loose shirt or something.”
interviewer says, “well what if i tell you women in niqabs have been harassed?”
man says, “oh, you know, sometimes they have makeup on their eyes -” makes motion to indicate winged eyeliner “-like here and—”
other man interjects, “like when some niqabis are wearing pants underneath their niqabs and it flaps open—”
interviewer, “you have time to analyse the makeup in her eyes?!”
man, looking hurt, “well, it’s the only thing that shows!!”
the worst part about mental illness is that everyone eventually gets sick of your problem and stops caring about it completely
The Atlantic’s Lindsay Abrams, reporting on the results of a recent study on the health effects of marijuana. In addition, regular pot smokers were skinnier than those who abstained, “even after adjusting for factors like age, sex, tobacco and alcohol use, and physical activity levels,” and had higher levels of HDL (“good cholesterol”). source (via shortformblog)
So, obviously I’m a huge fan of this, and not just because pot is great. In the United States, it is borderline impossible to do scientific research or testing on marijuana because it is a Schedule 1 drug. That means it’s considered one of the most dangerous substances and it has no possible medical benefits. (For reference, cocaine, opium and amphetamines are Schedule 2, and ketamine is Schedule 3 - in other words, they’re considered “less bad” than pot, and there are fewer federal requirements about studying them.)
Most people who study marijuana do it like this researcher: they test people who will admit to using pot presently or in the past. Findings like this are preliminary, but it opens up a lot of questions about how cannabis affects the human body. We need to study it more. We need to be getting lab subjects high with different amounts of THC and seeing how it affects them in real time. There is so much potential for good here.
More evidence that pot can be beneficial means more people trying to study it, which means more pressure to remove cannabis from Schedule 1, which means we can do more research and maybe find cures/preventions AND fewer people will be getting mandatory life sentences for it.

Okay, Mac’s new collection “Art of the Eye” recently came out and has beautiful products. Is it bad that I want most of the new items simply because they all have Arabic names for the palettes and shadows??
Ugh I love it, hilween ikteer :D
