23 year old graphic arts student with Non-verbal Learning Disability (NLD/NVLD). I have pink hair, depression/anxiety/agoraphobia and rather inexplicably, attempts at socializing on the internet even though I want to give me extremely bad social anxiety. So hello, I have probably admired you from afar but am too terrified to say hello.
Nevertheless because I am expected to by the people of my generation, I have one of these things, and I enjoy it in low doses from time to time, especially fandom things, animals, music, and art things.
Background is Spiral Galaxy M74 and is from the Hubble Space Telescope.

One of the biggest stories in comics and pop culture over the summer was from Marvel Comics showing their efforts in creating diverse characters. Much to a lot of fans dismay,they made Thor a woman and Captain America a black man. Sam Wilson aka The Falcon is now officially Captain America. While working today through my anger at the Ferguson, MO story which is still unfolding…I wondered what Sam would do if he were a real person. So, I did this image to deal with the madness.

So I saw this today on Pinterest and then found the Etsy link and I have to make a small PSA.
Please do not ever ever ever keep your betta (or any fish for that matter) in a permanent tank this small. EVER.The seller claims that betta don’t need aeration, filtration, or a lot of water to live a long and healthy life of two years, so a wine bottle is the perfect fashionable tank for them. This is a lie.Small tanks mean low water temp, which makes betta, a tropical fish, sick. Any good betta tank will have a heater that can be regulated to 80 degrees.The smallest tank any betta should live in is one gallon, which is nearly three times as much as a wine bottle (or those stupid “betta vases”) will hold. Betta will thrive much better in a three gallon or larger tank.There is nowhere in this jar for the betta to hide when he’s scared or nap when he’s tired. They do enjoy playing with their humans, but they need some aquarium decor to interact with when you’re not around.The seller suggests cleaning the tank once a week and that filtration isn’t needed, but bettas eat and poop just like any other fish and create waste that is harmful to them. The small amount of water in this jar should be changed daily, not weekly, to avoid ammonia buildup and remove uneaten food crud. Of course, a daily water change could be avoided with a good sized tank and a nice, slow-current filter.
This person has already sold a number of these upcycled tanks to people who don’t know any better about betta care, and it makes me so sad that their beautiful fish are living unhappy lives.

Reblogging for learning something new and incredibly needed today.

why are people buying pets to be put in something for fucking decoration anyways?? asshats. 

seriously fuck people

OOOH LOUD ANGRY YELLING
there is a common myth about betas perpetrated by pet stores that beta can life in tiny tanks due to the fact that in the wild they live in puddles
they do not. 
they die if you do that
not a lot of people know that but mAN I AM TELLING YOU
DO NOT KEEP BETAS IN TINY LITTLE TANKS WITHOUT PROPER CARE

If these are the fish I think they are (in Trinidad we called them Fighter Fish) then I think the myth might also have started because people in tropical countries do keep them in small tanks. Because they’re in tropical countries and therefore don’t have to worry about heating. And anyway, surviving is not the same as living.

fuck this. fuck everything. I just want to not do anything for a while. I can’t even deal with my mental health in small slices let alone large slices and after the abrupt descent into being sick for about 2 months solid on top of perpetual panic attacks on top of the death of my mouse on top of the stress at work on top of school I cannot process things, I cannot care anymore, all my papers are late and I just want to drop my courses because its too much effort for nothing to even try when I do work even from home. I feel grey seeping in,  and it terrifies me because the last time I felt this perpetually fucking exhausted and colorless and stopped enjoying things I got so brutally depressed I dropped out of school and spent several horrible dark months existing confined to my house while going round and round the cocktail of meds and psychiatry appts and ppl asking me if I was ok.

No I am not fucking ok, I want to be left the fuck alone until I stop hurting, then I’ll come back and be friendly for as long as I can possibly tolerate before my threshold snaps and I have to go hide and recover. 

I never want to go through that again.

and this is the goddamned last time that I EVER listen to anyone tell me it’s a “bad idea to take time off school because you’ll never go back!” fuck you you don’t live in my brain, ok? it’s a mess rn. fuck off. I need to go to school w/ precedence over my job cause I gotta get through but I need to keep my job if I can through the end of the summer to afford shit & get outta debt as much as possible and that is literally the only reason I stayed there (well & I am making friends but man, it would be easier if I hadn’t fucking had the brilliant idea to put myself through a goddamned emotional meat grinder and did one thing at a time and not all at once)
