"The real key to becoming fluent in the language is use. Speak half if necessary. Do not use the word “thanks” when you know the word “miigwech.” Say “Miigwech for coming,” rather than “Thanks for coming.” Use the language all the time in all ways possible. Do not be shy-elders will not laugh when young people are serious about trying to learn. It would be shame and embarrassment to lose our language. Be proud to use what you know."

I literally crave affection. It’s not about sex. I crave somebody to cuddle with me, and to lay their head on my lap. I crave kisses, holding hands and running my thumb across theirs. Just looking at someone and thinking “how did I get this lucky”.

"What’s the worst thing I’ve stolen? Probably little pieces of other people’s lives. Where I’ve either wasted their time or hurt them in some way. That’s the worst thing you can steal, the time of other people. You just can’t get that back."

The first time I held a human brain in Anatomy Lab I was completely speechless. I looked at my classmates expecting a similar reaction and they looked back at me confused like…”dude let’s start identifying the structures.” I had to take a step back and let it process…in my hands was someone’s entire life. From start to finish, every memory, every emotion, every bodily control…was right there in my hands. 

I don’t care if people unfollow this is spectacular

This post just fucked me up literally

Well shit…
