"Make a radical change in your lifestyle and begin to boldly do things which you may previously never have thought of doing, or been too hesitant to attempt. So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservation, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun. If you want to get more out of life, you must lose your inclination for monotonous security and adopt a helter-skelter style of life that will at first appear to you to be crazy. But once you become accustomed to such a life you will see its full meaning and its incredible beauty."

Map of the World by Natural Skin Color

i’m really dumbfounded that i never realized skin colour is literally just caused by being closer to or farther from the equator and the resulting sun exposure and skin darkening

actually, its an adaptation. natural selection. people with darker skin are selected for in areas near the equator, where the melanin that causes the darker color protects them from radiation and protects them from skin cancer and other health defects, and because they are healthier they can pass on that trait more. people near the poles have lighter skin because it allows them absorb more of the limited sunlight to convert to vitamin d. 

THIS IS THE THING SOME PEOPLE HATE OTHER PEOPLE OVER.Evolution of melanin levels based on geographical location.

This is why I think everyone should take anthropology classes. They teach this shit, and it’s hard to hate someone when you see how your bias has no basis in reality.

"Just don’t give up trying to do what you really want to do. Where there is love and inspiration, I don’t think you can go wrong."
Ella Fitzgerald (via observando)
"The worst thing about growing up
is realizing that you can’t save anyone.
They are on a ship hit by an iceberg
and you are on the coast.
All you can do is love them from afar
and then you’re forced to watch them either
sink or float.
That is why I bury my hurt
so deep so that
you will never find it.
You already are weighed down by so much,
and the odds are already stacked
up against you.
I don’t need to be the heavy in your life."

I’ve never felt this overwhelmed in my life. I’m at the point where I’ve gotten sick - is it even worth it? Am I just over thinking about it? Is this the point in life that shows how much I’m capable of? Am I just doubting myself because everyone else thinks I’m insane with this debt sentence I’m about to get myself into and not thinking about my ambition, dreams and goals? I know in the end it’s my choice. I guess I haven’t sorted it out yet.
