It started raining on me on my bike ride home. Big, beautiful, cooling rain drops. It felt wonderful. #day44 #rachels100happydays #bikela #rain #biking #California

"Oh my God, what if you wake up some day, and you’re 65, or 75, and you never got your memoir or novel written; or you didn’t go swimming in warm pools and oceans all those years because your thighs were jiggly and you had a nice big comfortable tummy; or you were just so strung out on perfectionism and people-pleasing that you forgot to have a big juicy creative life, of imagination and radical silliness and staring off into space like when you were a kid? It’s going to break your heart. Don’t let this happen."

Mary Poppins Quits with Kristen Bell

Mary Poppins (Kristen Bell) is working for minimum wage, and really needs a raise.

You’re all on notice because this came out yesterday, and nobody sent it to me.

She doesn’t get these birds for free.

Want to support #education? Donate to Tumblr Teachers' Classrooms!


If anybody can spare some cash and donate to education, this world will be a better place!


Dear Tumblrverse,

Before the explanation part of this post, I need to say this so it will be in posts that are shortened by a reblog: More than anything I ask that you…

The education issues in America are frightening and ever expanding. I have friends who are teachers that spend hundreds of dollars of their own money every year so their classrooms can have supplies they wouldn’t otherwise have. If you have any extra money to spend this month, I urge you to support these teachers. I was able to send 5 books to teachers in need, in hopes that their students will learn to love reading as much as I do. In hopes that these children’s futures will be brighter because of a teacher that cared about them and their dreams.

1. Your skin may never be perfect, and that’s okay.

2. Life is too short not to have the underwear, the coffee, and the haircut you want.

3. Everyone (including your family, your coworkers, and your best friend) will talk about you behind your back, and you’ll talk about them too. It doesn’t mean you don’t love each other.

4. It’s okay to spend money on things that make you happy.

5. Sometimes without fault or reason, relationships deteriorate. It will happen when you’re six, it will happen when you’re sixty. That’s life.

You know what underwear I want?! Some comfy, silky granny panties. And I don’t care who knows it!
