Body Positive

This blog is really important: http://curveappeal.tumblr.com/searchbymeasurements

It lets you search images of women (mostly Tumblr users) by measurements to show you that numbers aren’t everything. If you search the tag of your waist and hip measurements, the first thing you’ll notice is that all the ladies ‘your size’ look different! There is no standard way those measurements fill out a frame, no uniform people your size should all wear. All of their bodies are utterly unique and they all dress them differently. The measurements of your bust, waist, and hips do not define you. Neither does your height, your weight, or your age. They are important when finding clothes that fit you right and make you feel beautiful, but they don’t paint a picture of who you are. 

NOTE: Suited to curvier ladies (hips 10” or more larger than waist) between 26” and 40” around the waist. Unfortunatly I don’t think you can search by bust :(

DRAGON!

LOOK AT MY THING! Yes, that is a night sky projector in the belly of a blue plush dragon. When you put his sky light on, he plays pretty lullaby music you can fall asleep to while looking and the moon and stars projected onto your ceiling!

P.S Yeah, I look like a tired, derpy duck who is distinctly lacking in gingerness, but at least my lips are Revlon Really Red.

Anonymous asked: What sort of OCD do you have?


Answer:

Mmmkay yep, so I received this exact question a while ago and it’s been sitting in my inbox unanswered because I wasn’t sure how to answer it. It’s now been asked again. 

Since you ask ‘what sort of OCD’ I have, I must assume you think OCD presents itself in different varieties. I don’t think this is correct. There are simply different obsessions and compulsions which are unique to the individual. I think of OCD as the little part of my brain responsible for creating and enforces odd laws which cannot be rationalized. I understand that many people find the strange rituals associated with OCD interesting, but I find the idea of typing out every quirk, compulsion and obsession I have excruciatingly boring. In the past I have done so for psychiatrists who had nothing helpful to offer. 

Here is the Wikipedia definition:
Obsessive–compulsive disorder (OCD) is an anxiety disorder characterized by intrusive thoughts that produce uneasiness, apprehension, fear, or worry; [and] by repetitive behaviors aimed at reducing the associated anxiety.
