I don’t know why this has been a trend my whole life, or what, but I’ve seen this in so many of my relationships (mostly my relationships with friends, not with boyfriends/lovers):
The only time I see some of my friends is when I arrange plans or make the effort to get together with someone. Out of all my friends, I basically only have two friends who regularly invite me to hang out with them without me starting the conversation. One of them is an ex who I remained friends with, and the other is my male best friend. Maybe guys are just better at this stuff?
I know it’s petty, and it doesn’t mean people don’t want to hang out with me, but after awhile it gets old when I only hear from/hang out with people when I’m the one who reached out. For some of my friends (and granted, I still love them, but still need to rant at the same time), I can’t remember the last time I got a text or call that was along the lines of “Hey! What are you doing? Let’s hang out!”.
Ughs. I know it’s stupid, but it makes me feel like people either only want to spend time with me there’s nothing else for them to do, or as though they just forget I exist unless I happen to contact them first.
But whatevs. I’m gonna go drink beer now and relax. End rant.

I’m reblogging this because I think it’s super important to continuously learn new skills, even if it’s not for a grade. I love learning on my own.
This is my comic Blame. It’s taken me a VERY long time to create this (mentally not physically. Physically it only took me a little over a week to draw).By Courtney McInturff [tumblr]
I burst into tears while reading this. It basically explains exactly how I felt during my teenage years when I was bullied and horrifically depressed.
This looks so delicious that I’m going back to the grocery store so I can have this for breakfast tomorrow.
