Living with a dog is like having a furry drunk person following you around all the time.
I can actually sense a dog in my future.
I need to just vent my thoughts…
We go through life looking for that perfect love, that perfect partner, that perfect friend, that perfect individual that you can say, “Can I wake up to you until I don’t wake up again”? Then we find that… and due to all of the distractions and our ignorance we let that go. We fuck up, we hurt, we break things that are beautiful. Relationships lasted in the past because their were less distractions, and your friends were a group of five people that you have met, not hundreds who you see on a “news feed”. What is news to us any more? A cat got saved from a tree? Trivial matters such as the name of Kanye West’s baby. We care too much about the things we should care less about and care less about the things we should be building around. I can honestly say, I have lived this and I resent myself for it, I have depression because I became someone I told myself since childhood, I would never be. I have changed, but change does not delete the past. Instead of liking a million posts and pictures I should have complimented you in person, I should have told you how I felt instead of thinking you saw a status, I hurt someone by not thinking before I acted. I guarantee you in this modern society, you have ALL fallen victim to this action and adversely most have preyed on another beautiful person’s love and trust. We think too much and feel too little. The infestation of greed in the mind of men and women has blinded us.
You all ask for change. Why not be the change you want to see? If you love someone, even if the relationship does not last, during your time with them, devote that time, enjoy it, FOCUS, and realize what you have in front of you. Be honest, with your feelings and everything you do. If you do not love them anymore, think if it is in your mind worth fixing, if not, break things off, respectfully and honestly. Do not cheat, do not go through with actions just as an excuse to end another. One day you will look back and think, “That girl/guy, truly loved me and I was blind to that due to my greed. She may not be the prettiest in everyone’s eyes but in mine she was beautiful, and I was distracted looking for the next best thing. But she was loyal, caring, and she gave me chances. I fucked up”. That is a conversation I hope you never have to have with yourself. Guilt eats at your mind and weighs on your heart.
So through all of this if you take anything:
If you are going to love, love honestly. Leave no room for distraction, and provide the best time for yourself and your partner for as long as you are able to enjoy that time. Do it the right way, because sometimes things don’t work out when you are young, but if you are blessed enough to find that person again, maybe like a fire done in time, an ember will still burn and reignite what was once a bright time in your life.
I hope to be able to give an honest love one day, unflinching and focused. I have learned every lesson in life the hard way and for that you may call me now at times, wise, but for myself I just call myself an idiot who finally listened to the signs around him after ever other opportunity was too late.

Ten rape prevention tips:
1. Don’t put drugs in women’s drinks.
2. When you see a woman walking by herself, leave her alone.
3. If you pull over to help a woman whose car has broken down, remember not to rape her.
4. If you are in an elevator and a woman gets in, don’t rape her.
5. When you encounter a woman who is asleep, the safest course of action is to not rape her.
6. Never creep into a woman’s home through an unlocked door or window, or spring out at her from between parked cars, or rape her.
7. Remember, people go to the laundry room to do their laundry. Do not attempt to molest someone who is alone in a laundry room.
8. Use the Buddy System! If it is inconvenient for you to stop yourself from raping women, ask a trusted friend to accompany you at all times.
9. Carry a rape whistle. If you find that you are about to rape someone, blow the whistle until someone comes to stop you.
10. Don’t forget: Honesty is the best policy. When asking a woman out on a date, don’t pretend that you are interested in her as a person; tell her straight up that you expect to be raping her later. If you don’t communicate your intentions, the woman may take it as a sign that you do not plan to rape her.
Horror Movies Reimagined As “Goosebumps” Book Covers
If It Were Stine is a Tumblr blog run by cover designer Theodore Holmstead-Scott and blurb writer Jude Deluca that reimagines horror movies as book covers from the popular “Goosebumps” series by R.L. Stine.
If you were born anytime before the year 1980 these words probably won’t mean much to you. But if you weren’t, we have a question for you - what was your first horror memory?
Perhaps it was watching ‘The Thing’ on late night television or a grainy VHS copy of ‘Zombi 2’ at a friend’s house. Maybe even sneaking into a cinema to see the local premiere of ‘Scream’.
That’s good, but we want you to stretch your mind back further – to a time when horror was not about ditzy teenagers being sliced and diced by chainsaw-wielding maniacs, but when the word horror evoked imagery of evil ventriloquist dolls and possessed Halloween masks. We are, of course, talking about Goosebumps here.
Whether it was the dripping neon slime, the terrifyingly gaudy cover illustrations or the sheer spine-tingling horror of the stories themselves – there’s no doubt that R.L. Stine’s classic series has shaped a generation of horror lovers.
So what happens when the two worlds of horror collide? When the terror of ‘The Exorcist’ or ‘The Blair Witch Project’ meets the bad puns and outrageous titles of our beloved book series? …That’s where we come in.
