There’s been many missed birthdays, double shifts and holidays spent at the station; but that’s something you get used too. They all just kind of become your family. Suddenly you have a lot more uncles or a few older brothers who have no problem teasing you like their little sister; but would have your back without question. Dating has always been fun, not only do they have to pass inspection from my dad…but also my dad’s entire crew hahaha. On the weekends my mom and I go cook for the guys if they are working. You get used to them leaving in the middle of a conversation or dinner to go on a call and your heart breaks whenever you hear of someone getting hurt or killed on duty…even if they are from another state and you’ve never met them. Because you know there have been plenty of opportunities for the person you love to not come back. That has always been the hardest part for me…the not knowing if my dad was going to walk back through my front door in the morning after his shift. Or having to take care of your daddy after a bad burn from some unexplainable accident when hes always been the person to take care of you. Not knowing is definitely the worst. Their selflessness and sacrifice is something that too many people take for granted. Sure I would rather be at a baseball game or fishing with my dad on fathers day instead of waiting in an empty station to get back from a call but this is our life, and I am so proud of him everyday. This year I am going to be spending every major holiday (and most of the minor ones too) at the fire station and my dad will miss my moms and my birthday. But he loves his job and I love my second family. I am so blessed to be able to spend so much time with such incredibly amazing men and women. I just love them so much and am so incredibly proud. So really in the end all I can do is pray for their safety and hope they all make it home alive.
I hate it when a student asks a legit question because they’re confused and the teacher treats them like an idiot like no wonder students don’t want to ask questions
“I’m gonna tell you why people are watching that video and why they’re upset about it, and why they can’t understand that, yknow—the beginning and the end of that might be very satirical and then the middle feels so real.”
I’m a mess. I hate the way my life is right now; I have no friends, no job my family hardly wants to spend time with me and when I do actually do something I always end up being the third wheel and regret even going. I hate it. Not to mention I’m about 80000% done with school I just don’t want to go back it’s taken me 4 fucking years to get a 2 year degree and I haven’t even finished it because if fucking math giving me panic attacks just thinking about signing up for it. I’m just so done with my life being like this I want to be married and have my own family and have my shit together. Seriously I’m going to be 23 and I’m more lost now than I was at 16. The worst part is that now is the time I’m supposed to be having fun and making memories but I’ve never been so alone. I watch my friends move across country or travel the world with these amazing internships and my 18 year old cousin get everything I’ve ever wanted without having to work for it and it makes me so angry why can’t I be the girl that gets what she wants for once. Just for once I can’t live like this anymore.
do you ever feel like you’re just sort of
like all your friends go out and do things and have fun and do stupid things with their best friends and instead of doing all that you’re just sort of this mildly entertaining thing that people take an interest in once in a while but they wouldn’t really care if it was gone
like you just sort of exist but you don’t really mean anything
right in the feels.
Rape, By The Numbers.

Google is definitely a woman, it starts suggesting things before you can even finish your sentence.
That must mean Bing is a man, tries to convince people it’s superior and does a horrible job with pleasing its user.
