“Cakes have gotten a bad rap. People equate virtue with turning down dessert. There is always one person at the table who holds up her hand when I serve the cake. No, really, I couldn’t she says, and then gives her flat stomach a conspiratorial little pat. Everyone who is pressing a fork into that first tender layer looks at the person who declined the plate, and they all think, That person is better than I am. That person has discipline. But that isn’t a person with discipline; that is a person who has completely lost touch with joy. A slice of cake never made anybody fat. You don’t eat the whole cake. You don’t eat a cake every day of your life. You take the cake when it is offered because the cake is delicious. You have a slice of cake and what it reminds you of is someplace that’s safe, uncomplicated, without stress. A cake is a party, a birthday, a wedding. A cake is what’s served on the happiest days of your life. This is a story of how my life was saved by cake, so, of course, if sides are to be taken, I will always take the side of cake.”—
Jeanne Ray (via shetakesflight) I think I’ve reblogged this before. I’ll probably reblog this again because I love this. Although I don’t always love cake… but I do love really good cake. And pie. (via kicksandgiggles)
“For what it’s worth: it’s never too late to be whoever you want to be. I hope you live a life you’re proud of, and if you find you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start over again.”—F. Scott Fitzgerald (via nakedvibe)
Do you think it’s fun for me that all my friends go to amazing universities and I’m stuck at a state school?
"Hahahaha Laura made another mistake"
“Hahaha Laura doesn’t know what this word means”
“Laura’s so out of it”
I love the color pink, curling my hair, going shopping, and gossiping. But that doesn’t make me stupid. And that’s what no ones is getting. Because being smart isn’t about knowing which organelle is in an animal cell. It’s about experiencing life and taking the lessons you learn and applying them to your future.
“Most humans are never fully present in the now, because unconsciously they believe that the next moment must be more important than this one. But then you miss your whole life, which is never not now.”—Eckhart Tolle (via villere)
“Girls are raised in a society where flattering clothing means clothing that makes you look skinnier. Where fat is an insult more often than a noun and not just a physical description but a reflection of personality. Where “you look healthy” is what you say when a girl gains weight, but “you look good” is what you say when a girl loses weight. Girls are raised in a society that teaches them it is their own responsibility to be as small as possible because they do not deserve to take up space.”—Unknown (via fawun)
