Sometimes my mind wanders and I just want to die, at this point I have absolutely no idea what keeps me from doing it. However everytime the depression fog eases I cry because I’m so happy to still be alive… Or because I’m bipolar. Who.even knows anymore.
So I dyed my cats pink with leftover beet water. No regrets! <3 :D
I had to wash them because of some oil spill they had gotten into, and chose to use the beet water, which is perfectly safe. I had no idea it would really make them this pink.
I bet this poor person has gotten plenty of hate filled messages from people that didn’t read the caption and think she used real hair dye.

”i see that you’ve come so far - to be right where you are.”
CaptainSwanAthon: The Last Day… For now.
that slowly faded with each breath i drew.
I’ve lost you so many times. I’ve lost you to darkness, to weakness, and finally, to death. But now I realize, I realize that I have not spent my life losing you. I’ve spent my life f i n d i n g y o u.
When we met, I wasn’t just unloved, and unloving, I was an enemy of love. Love had only brought me pain. My walls were up, but you broke them down. You brought me h o m e. You brought light to my life and chased away all the darkness. And I vow to you, I will never forget the distance between what I was and what I am. I owe more to you than I can ever say. How you can see the man behind the monster, I will never know.
That monster’s gone. The man beneath him may be flawed, but we all are. And I love you for it. Sometimes the best book has the dustiest jacket. And sometimes the best teacup is c h i p p e d.
"You can’t steal something that’s been given to you"
The final installment for my Mythological Woman series. :) Here is the Inuit Goddess, Sedna. She is the creation goddess for animal and plant life under the sea.
“The water was so cold that it made her bones ache and crushed the air from her lungs. She tried so hard to cling to the boat edge but her father had cut through her fingers and sent her spiraling down into the deep. She doesn’t see her severed fingers drift away, doesn’t see them reshape and grow and breathe, doesn’t see when they turn to living flesh and become the great creatures of the sea.
When she drags in a breath it’s all sea-water and she chokes, the blood from her hands twisting around her like cord.
But by the time her feet touch the bottom of the sea, she’s no longer just a girl. The water that drowned her has already become her own and any desire to return to the surface is gone." -ManticoreImaginary

Kitsune - Japanese Mythology
Kitsune are believed to possess superior intelligence, long life, and magical powers. They are a type of yōkai, or spiritual entity, and the wordkitsune is often translated as fox spirit. However, this does not mean that kitsune are ghosts, nor that they are fundamentally different from regular foxes. Because the word spirit is used to reflect a state of knowledge or enlightenment, all long-lived foxes gain supernatural abilities.
It appears a lot more than I thought it did.
