Too late for summer? I’d still post these just ‘cause I feel pretty in these photos. :P
[TW: suicide, depression, self harm, abuse]
Happy Birthday, Daul! Today Daul would have turned 25.
She was an international South Korean fashion model, Painter, Poet, and blogger who committed suicide at the age of 20 in 2009.
Kim was a keen painter and on 10 August 2007 she held a solo exhibition of her artwork in Seoul.
Kim was discovered hanging in her apartment on 19 November 2009 at the age of 20. The Paris prosecutor’s office ruled her death as suicide. Kim had suffered from depression, abuse from her boyfriend, and frustration for a long time, and had voiced her frustrations in her own weblog and in her paintings. She left violent posts of self angst related to self-mutilation and suicide, had posted “I am going to smash my face… My life as Daul was so miserable and lonely. Please join my loneliness in another world. I love you all. Daul.” She had also described suffering from insomnia and had admitted that she self harmed. In October 2009 during New York Fashion Week she left a post on her blog describing herself as “mad depressed and overworked.” She became the ninth South Korean celebrity to commit suicide in 2009. Daul’s last post included a song titled “I Go Deep” by Jim Rivers. The post was titled “Say Hi to Forever” and under, Kim wrote “best track forever.”
She was one of the most interesting people in the fashion industry. Love you and miss you.

This is the best thing.
Oh my god
I don’t even know this fandom and this is cool.
Reason #999 why the cartoon will always be ONE MILLION PERCENT better than that travesty of a movie. They did so much research and put so much detail in you don’t even notice.
Bonus trivia: Toph got a unique martial arts style to match her distinct version of Earthbending (Southern Praying Mantis style, I think) which the creators found out later was (according to legend) invented by a blind woman. Totally a coincidence, but still so *** cool.
(If you don’t watch the show, Toph is both blind from birth and the best *** Earthbender in the world. Also, GO WATCH THE SHOW.)
THIS SHOW WAS AMAZING. I DID NOT WATCH IT FOR A LONG TIME BUT WHEN I DID I WAS COMPLETELY BLOWN AWAY. ART. IT WAS ART.
i will reblog this every time
I worked with a lady that came into work one day with no hair. No one mentioned it, no one talked about it. She was wearing a bandana so we all knew she was bald.
But I have ADD, and not so great control of my impulsiveness. Finally, near the end of the night I asked. “So… can I ask, what happened to your hairs?”
She smiled and hugged me. I was the only person with the cajones to ask. “My best friend is pregnant, already has a 4 yr old, and was diagnosed with cancer, and her boyfriend left her because it was too much. So I’ve been helping her out, being supportive. And I promised her if she started losing her hair I would shave my head too.”
“Last night she called me, crying because her hair was falling out in clumps. I told her I’d be there in 10 minutes. She shaved me first, then I her.”
It’s the most supportive thing she could think to do.
omg this is beautiful
My dad has had cancer twice already and all I remember is him looking I’m the mirror saying “I’m disgusted” ill never forget the day that I saw him lose hope

In this African tribe, when someone does something harmful, they take the person to the center of the village where the whole tribe comes and surrounds them.
For two days, they will say to the man all the good things that he has done.
The tribe believes that each human being comes into the world as a good. Each one of us only desiring safety, love, peace and happiness.
But sometimes, in the pursuit of these things, people make mistakes.
The community sees those mistakes as a cry for help.
They unite then to lift him, to reconnect him with his true nature, to remind him who he really is, until he fully remembers the truth of which he had been temporarily disconnected: “I am good.”
NABAJYOTISAIKIA, is a compliment used in South Africa and means: “I respect you, I cherish you. You matter to me.” In response, people say SHIKOBA, which is: “So, I exist for you.”
