The Brain Tumblr Experiment

Ask me anything   Brain tumblers don't exist so this is the next best thing.

Dreams and nightmares, hopes and heartaches, mental notes and inspiring quotes, earworms and eye candy. This is probably the closest anyone will get to mapping out the jumbled landscape of my mind.

"

We had a lot of trouble with western mental health workers who came here immediately after the genocide and we had to ask some of them to leave.

They came and their practice did not involve being outside in the sun where you begin to feel better. There was no music or drumming to get your blood flowing again. There was no sense that everyone had taken the day off so that the entire community could come together to try to lift you up and bring you back to joy. There was no acknowledgement of the depression as something invasive and external that could actually be cast out again.

Instead they would take people one at a time into these dingy little rooms and have them sit around for an hour or so and talk about bad things that had happened to them. We had to ask them to leave.

Vampires who look and dress like fourteen-year-old budding goth kids because no one will ever believe that they’re actually vampires, no matter what they might see or hear.

Vampires wearing bad plastic fangs and tacky red contacts everywhere they go and telling people to call them things like “Lord Bloodfang McDarkness the Third” and “Salacia, Mistress of the Night”.

I really love this. O_O Harry Potter inspired floating candles. These were made from paper towel rolls and battery LEDs. So insanely easy! The link has TONS and tons of ideas for an entire Harry Potter themed party, including menu ideas and lots of DIY decor. Definitely worth checking out. See it all here.

Mz 007- Important 

I’ve listened to this at least 10 times since reading about it on For Harriet yesterday. 

I’m so here for a fat black woman declaring herself important, exuding self confidence, and owning her truth.

Here for this movement!  

this is hella catchy
