Today in gym class we were doing major climbing and halfway up this girl freezes and goes “I CAN’T DO IT I CAN’T DO IT”

so some dude yells “MY AUNT SAID DAT AT HER WEDDIN’ BUT SHE MARRIED DAT FINE-ASS DOCTOR AND NOW SHE RICH AS HELL” 

the girl did it. truly inspiring.

I should add that it was a shrimpy 5’1 Indian boy nobody had ever heard talk before who was apparently from the deep south.

"If white people are so privileged why is there a Black Entertainment Network and no White Entertainment Network?"

"Men don’t have privilege, there are women’s only gyms!"

"Why isn’t there a campus centre for straight/cis people!?"

SAME REASONS WHY IN MARIO KART YOU DON’T GET BLUE SHELLS OR LIGHTNING BOLTS WHEN YOU’RE ALREADY IN FIRST PLACE, ASSBAG.

This is honestly the best explanation I have ever seen.

I can't believe you still have doubts about writing. Should someone behind you take that as a sign that "doubt is always gonna be there, so just forget about it" or "doubt is always gonna be there, embrace it"?

I can’t speak for other writers, but as for me, I somehow simultaneously believe I am more talented than most other people and also that I am a complete and total fraud who is unqualified to even spray aerosol cans into bowling shoes. And depending on the exact moment when you talk to me, I will either have the confident exuberance of a toddler climbing a bookshelf or the abject self-loathing of a dog pooping in public.

Because the real truth is there are so many people smarter than me and more talented than me and more driven than me and luckier than me. But another real truth is that I am also smarter than a lot of people and more talented than a lot of people and more driven than a lot of people and luckier than a lot of people.

And I believe that just as much as I doubt it’s true.

So yes. Doubt is always going to be there. But you can’t just forget about it (it makes you humble and hungry). And you can’t just embrace it (it makes you weak and boring).

You have to do both. 

And also neither.

I like this a lot.

Yep. Anthony described my feelings about writing exactly.
