i’m a strong believer that not everything you do needs an explanation. if you want a tattoo, get one. if you rather stay home that night, it’s okay to miss that party. don’t forget that you’re living for yourself. you don’t owe anyone an explanation for your choices or preferences.

Thank you so much, I love you too! x
The Bible literally condones rape, kidnapping, killing non-virgins, incest, pedophilia, slavery, the sex trade, and murder (you can google “[rape, murder, ect] in the Bible” and find the exact passages if you’d like) but obviously 99.9999% of Christians aren’t going around raping and murdering and justifying it with their religious text.
Every single religious text is extremely problematic but pretty much all religious people have adapted them to modern society and are generally pretty chill about it, following all of the moral and religious guidelines that actually work common sense-wise and accepting that there’s plenty of things in the texts that are flat-out wrong.
Islamophobes like to pretend like all Muslims are extremists who think that terrorists’ actions are justified. To put how ridiculous that is into perspective, that’s like believing that every single Christian supports the Wesboro Baptist Church or the dozens of Christian serial killers who have justified their crimes with religion.
Ben Affleck just explained all this perfectly on Bill Maher’s show: there are about a billion Muslims who are exactly like every other person in the world, they just believe in Allah and pray to Him five times a day, but the Western media has just done it’s best to paint Muslims as crazy fanatics who believe in murdering non-believers. Fun fact: The Qur’an actually forbids murder and terrorist-type attacks. The only people who can read justified murder into the Qur’an are the miniscule percent of extremists that most of the Muslim population regard as actual crazy people. x

Definitely! And I wrote a whole thing here about how to choose the best uni for you. x
Definitely! I would make sure to be super nice to their girlfriend if you ever meet her though because it’s easy for girls to get jealous and weird about their boyfriends hanging out with girls they don’t like. x
I don’t personally have an issue with any people who smoke except for parents I see smoking with their children, it just sets a really bad example and children’s lungs really can’t tolerate smoke at all. I think it’s considered attractive because there’s a certain vibe that’s attached to smoking, like a lot of people think smoking looks cool, high fashion, chic, rockstar-esque, ect. Smoking actually diminishes your appetite, which makes weight loss easier, which is why a lot of high fashion models smoke. However, it can cause acne, wrinkles, grey-tinted skin, weak and/or yellow nails, yellow teeth, bad breath, brittle, dull hair, headaches, and lowered endurance on top of long-term health effects like cancer and rotted teeth. x
