I live in wales and I'm sick of people asking "no but where are you really from" or "wait, so your grandparents aren't British? So your not British?"I'm 100%British I was born here and I live her as do both my parents. I'm only a teen girl. I'm trying to find who I am myself, I don't need other people questioning my appearance. Sorry for ranting :(. and this blog is perfection💕 x
Ah, yes I feel like this happens to anyone who isn’t white or obviously black, unless they have a foreign accent. It’s so bizarre because, I know in America at least, there are people whose families came here from Asian countries several generations ago but it’s like not even a possibility in a lot of people’s minds that you and your family can be American and also of an Asian ethnicity. That’s something that’s also bothered me but with your situation this probably occurs because they’re misidentifying you and that’s several problems occurring in one situation. Why can’t people just let other people live without questioning them? I somehow need to find out why people are like this and write a research paper on it or something
Anyways, this blog is 1000% in support of ranting so you can rant as much as you like. Also, thank you very much, you’re very kind haha

I live in a small welsh town, and I think Me and my siblings are the only mixed people in the town I've been bullied all my life for being mixed race. I couldn't even look in the mirror without crying. I hated who I was.Till I saw your blog. Every morning before school I come on here and scroll through your blog and I feel appreciated, I feel not so alone. And now I love my raceand my hair and my nose and eyes. All thanks to you, sorry this isn't a question x

“Just so everyone is aware, there is a bunch of misleading info being spread around re: ALS research - the “27%” figure is based on previous years’ annual funding; furthermore, the remainder goes to improving the quality of life of those suffering from ALS. Given that the annual funding is approximately 16M, that’s just over 4M spent on decreasing their suffering. It isn’t greed, it’s a lack of money.”
Shut up already.
And the next time you start to complain about a charity either a) working on multiple fronts (because that’s what ALSA does—both seeking a cure and helping people suffering now) or b) daring to have administration expenses—let’s see how long you can last, much less tackle a cause, without printer paper and an internet connection.
As someone who has watched a family member die from a neuro-degenerative disease; funding to develop better wheelchairs and bedsore creams is *just* as important as funding research to cure the disease itself…
A friend of mine posted an update from one of HER friends to FB earlier. Her dad has ALS. The ALS foundation came out to see if they could put in a ramp for his wheelchair, but they couldn’t afford it because of the kind of ramp he needed for the kind of house they had.
This week they called back and said hey, the thing is, we suddenly have a bunch of money, so we’re coming out to build that ramp. And they did. She posted pics.
So if you feel like bitching about the ice bucket challenge…reconsider.
how do boys actually dry their ducks after they shower like
do you just grab it in the towel and roll it between your hands like a dough snake
or do you swing it around to air dry
I need to know
I feel like this was all one big misunderstanding but idk that’s a cute duck
