THE ENTIRE SCHOOL WOULD HATE YOU
JINGLE JINGLE, MUTHERFUCKER.
It’s almost as bad as mum season.
What the fuck is a mum?
OH MY GOD. IS IT REALLY A TEXAS ONLY THING?!
For Homecoming, students make these THINGS from HELL that have excess amounts of ribbons and bells and they wear them all the time. They are usually placed on prize winning livestock, but somehow they made their way into schools. They have huge mums at the top, and they just get bigger and bigger each year. Sometimes they are completely covered in them. One day the students are just going to morph into one.
You knew when the season was coming because you could hear a horrifying jingle in the distance while you sleep.
They cost hundreds of dollars to make, or buy pre-made for the bigger ones. The bigger the better, and the more souls you sacrificed to get it.
What the fuck, Texas?
You don’t understand: homecoming is serious business here.
Also… is this REALLY a Texas only thing?
1. What the hell is your definition of a mum all I can see is these kids carrying their mothers around on their backs 24/7
2. I thought Homecoming was like a big dance at the end of the year, like Prom?? Why is there livestock at homecoming??? I dont understand???????
Wow…I honestly thought this was a big thing really. My school in Texas had these too. They are huge mother fuckers and the worst part about it, you actually wanted to go to homecoming alone if you didnt feel like spending hella money. That’s because the social norm expects you to buy on of these for your date regardless of how much money you have.
Yeah, homecoming also consists (at least for my school) of a big football game where the blechers are filled with guys and gals wearing this fuckers and you would hear jiggling for miles. The cheering and shouting was nothing compared to the jiggle.
Oh….and after the game, then and only then, did you have an actualy dance and try not to step on the 100 dollar piece of shit you bought for your date. Because, for some dumb ass reason, girls had to have full body length mums and guys have shoulder length mums. It’s pretty damn stupid.
I saw girls in high school that had to get a back-harness for theirs xD I almost had to for one of mine once. And since I had a boyfriend at a different high school (who’s family was pretty rich) they would make me a different one for BOTH freaking homecomings to wear at school that Friday. They’d put little games and cowbells and stuff on it. I guess it’s just a Texas thing, but oh my gosh it was a thing for sure xD the back harnesses though. HARNESSES.
for real though i went to high school in south cali and there was none of this bullshit, when i came back to texas i was picking a friend up from class and i kept seeing them and they are annoying as hell, big ass bells and shit, and when i pointed and literally said “what the fuck is that thing” everyone around me looked astonished that i had never seen one in my entire life.
go big or go home, texas.
seriously tearing up at 2am over steve irwin
such an incredible person who really cherished animals, his death will always hurt my heart. always
gets bitten on the neck by a snake.
"Can you get a close-in on this?"
I will never not love this man with all my heart.
So gentle. Obviously I didn’t know him in person but the way he didn’t react in anger here seems to show a very kind spirit. I wish people wouldn’t joke about how he died. People wouldn’t joke about a firefighter who died in a fire. Steve was all about showing us that even dangerous animals deserve our admiration, respect, and even a sort of affection, and that was something worth doing, even if he seemed goofy and silly sometimes.
I wanted to BE this man as a kid. I did. The world was so scary and he was always so excited about it all, I wanted to be excited too. I hate jokes about his death and how people talk about him like he was crazy. He was alive. He loved every single day he was on this planet and if that’s something people think is worth ridicule, then that just makes me feel sorry for them.
I love Steve Irwin.
Map of the World by Natural Skin Color
i’m really dumbfounded that i never realized skin colour is literally just caused by being closer to or farther from the equator and the resulting sun exposure and skin darkening
actually, its an adaptation. natural selection. people with darker skin are selected for in areas near the equator, where the melanin that causes the darker color protects them from radiation and protects them from skin cancer and other health defects, and because they are healthier they can pass on that trait more. people near the poles have lighter skin because it allows them absorb more of the limited sunlight to convert to vitamin d.
THIS IS THE THING SOME PEOPLE HATE OTHER PEOPLE OVER.
Evolution of melanin levels based on geographical location.

Body – Notice how it is positioned, if there’s any tension anywhere.
Emotions – Are you angry, frustrated, calm, happy, sad, stressed?
Thoughts – Are you worrying, stewing, or rehashing? Are you stuck in the past or future?
Location – Where are you?
Remind yourself a few times a day to stay in the present. This can be useful for stressful moments.
