I firmly believe that almost every single person you know, at some point or another, has been directly affected by bullying. Some are bullied, some watch it, some, sadly, participate. Bullying is everywhere, and this week the KIND Campaign and @ Sevenly are teaming up to help get rid of it, and provide support for those who have been affected. You can snag this shirt, this rad and amazingly designed shirt, and instantly donate $7 towards this crucial campaign. Kids everywhere need our help dealing with this, and now is our chance to help.

I made the mistake of drinking a really strong Vietnamese coffee blend at 5 pm and now it’s 3 in the morning and I can’t sleep.
Why do I keep doing things that I’ll severely regret…….
Sometimes I like to make my boyfriend guess what a book is about judging solely on the cover. 99.9% of the time he gives a really drab answer, but today he surprised me with:
"It’s about an overweight waiter who is tired of people picking on him because of his size and so he serves them butter that’s been loaded with poison."
Heheeeh. Almost got it! Well, just the bullying part, really.
That would make a pretty interesting story, though.
