I'm Brandy, a 20-something-year old who posts a lot of nonsense.
Full-time Marshmallow Girl and part-time doodler. I don't have this set to any specific theme. Things you'll probably see a lot of are: Animals (and other things I find cute), politics - including atheism and feminism/gender rights, food, ladies and body positivity, cartoons, fandom-related things and other silly or passionate stuff. Sometimes I throw in some art and personal thoughts as well. :>
While not necessarily intentional, some adult things will end up here. I'm also horrible about consistently using tags.
This is something that will make me smile even in my worst moods.
A wild raven perches himself on the fence of a human’s farm and squawks for help because he has three porcupine quills stuck in the side of his face. The kind humans who find him attempt to take the quills out, but not without some “lip” from the raven.
(Really. It is a baby! Its mouth is still pink.)
"Carrie and I are more romantic than any other romantic relationship I’ve ever had—that sense of anticipation about seeing the other person, the secret bond. But things don’t become obligatory. I’m not thinking, I’m doing this because you’re my girlfriend; I’m just thinking, I love Carrie." - Fred Armisen
Trying to get this on as many social media platforms as possible.
A Fight to Survive TBI: The Story of David On the Road to Recover from Traumatic Brain Injury.
August 24, 2012 drastically changed my life. What happened that evening has left David in a vegetative coma and I am desperate to save my son’s life and future. David was pistol whipped, had his jaw broken and then his unconscious body was robbed. Though David regained consciousness, he was incoherent and rushed by ambulance to UMDNJ trauma center in Newark, New Jersey. It was there that he underwent emergency craniotomy surgery to alleviate the pressure from his swelling brain.
He is currently living in a sub-acute unit at a nursing home being fed via a gastric feeding tube. He is no longer entitled to physical therapy because he has shown no signs of progress. This means each day he lies in bed approximately 19 hours and sit in a wheelchair for 5 hours with no physical stimulation aside from being dressed and his diaper changed.
The importance behind physical therapy is that it will help him maintain his muscles and joints; to achieve his goal to attain flexibility, balance and coordination free from pain or suffering, so that he may lead a normal life again; performing all of his daily activities with minimal or no difficulty and without dependency. It can even help with his cardiopulmonary and neurological functions.
With prolonged treatment, it is possible for him to regain a large share, if not all of his mobility and it will improve his overall fitness and health.
David’s survival depends on continued physical and mental stimulation therapies which most insurances are not willing to fund long term. The lack of such treatment poses a direct threat to David’s ability to return to a life that extend beyond sitting in front of a television for hours on end in a nursing home. He deserves better.
His recovery is destined to be a long and arduous one, with no guarantees. But in order for him to have that chance, he needs, aside from a miracle, funds for aggressive physical therapy, a private neurologist and a specially designed vehicle for myself to accommodate his wheel chair.
Please join my family in our fight to get David the medical and physical treatment he needs. The amount we are now trying to raise is just the beginning for David and we could use your support. Thank you!
Please reblog, donate, and pray for David #teamwu

This moth has her winter coat on already and she is looking fabulouuuuuuuuus!
No this is not okay please kill every one of these
You all better hold my earrings right now. How could you kill something so small that contributes so much to our environment? They’re harmless, tiny creatures just making their way through life and sometimes get caught up in our human world on their journeys. With moths, we are able to see various changes in food supply and crops, weather, and changes in the amounts of recent pesticides being put into our towns as well.
Do not hurt moths. Moths are beautiful. They are the fairies of our natural world. Love the moths. Release the moths.
^ TELL EM! Moths are beautiful creatures. :)
Plus they’re adorable!!
