realized too late that the alphabet of nations tshirt/no children hoodie combination makes me look like a weird walking political advertisement because the most prominent country on the shirt is Russia
at some point in the past two years Pet Name went from my favorite tmbg song to the tmbg song that tears me apart every time I hear it
too close to home, mr Flansburgh
also how much do I love that my phone automatically corrects any misspellings of the name Flansburgh

long story short i’m fuckin’ minted
silverhcandy asked: Why are ppl so dang rude to Jenelle when it's obvious that she's changed her life for the better ?
I think it’s probably a little like the boy who cried wolf for a lot of people, she’s said she will change so many times that no that she is finally starting to people don’t believe it’s really going to happen or last
this attitude of “Jenelle has changed her life and deserves praise for it” really upsets me as the child of a teen mom
my mother abandoned me repeatedly as a child. she left me with whichever relative would keep me and came back every few months when she felt like being a mom; we’d live together for a while, but eventually i’d be back at my aunt’s house or my grandmother’s house, sleeping on couches and floors because nobody really had room for me. it fucking SUCKED. and then she met a guy she thought she loved and she decided that she wanted to have a baby with him because she was finally “ready.” so instead of choosing to be a mother to me, HER CHILD, she decided that she needed to start over with a different kid because … why? why would my mom choose not to be a mother to me? why did she need to start over with a whole new kid? i’m 26 now and i still have no idea.
and that is exactly how Jace is going to feel in a few decades.
it’s awesome that Jenelle is clean and in a relatively stable relationship, but having kids isn’t a fucking joke. it’s not something you do because it’s “the next step” or because you have nothing else going on in your life. kids turn into people with real fucking problems. you can’t just treat them like dolls, taking them out when you want them and putting them away again when it gets to be too much. Jenelle is not the victim here. Jace is the victim.
my mail gets delivered in batches every two or three days and I’m convinced it’s because my mail carrier is afraid of the creepy enclosed alley I live in
Aubree’s expression when her cousin starts sobbing because Aubree won’t let her help open birthday presents
the way Ali and Aleeah pronounce the word “why” also slays me
"paislee won’t talk to me"
"she can’t talk"
oh my god Aubree telling the baby “i’m your big sister”
my heart shattered
— a thing i just said to my cat
as much as I hate my name I’m grateful to my parents for naming me something that doesn’t get totally butchered by Maine accents
my coworker’s name is Amanda and she may as well spell it “Amander” because that is what she gets called constantly
