"You sort of start to think anything's possible if you've got enough nerve."
"If you've never been called crazy in your life, then you have never risked your life and tried."
"I’m childish, that’s my charm. I’m fearless, that’s my youth."
-Lee Chaerin (CL)
"Kill them with success and bury them with a big smile."
-Kwon Jiyong (GDragon)
Youth should be awkward and simple, and love should be untainted and tacky.

i need ferguson to go down in history books. i need school children in the year 2074 to learn about michael brown being shot on august 9th, 2014 by officer darren wilson. i need this to spark a movement. this can not lose the focus of society a mere month after it happened.
its really important for men to stand up to other men who say terrible and sexist shit
because sexist men dont listen to what women have to say
literally the most important thing men can do if they want to call themselves feminist allies
1.) Compliment strangers.
Not only will the person you complimented feel better about themselves, but I guarantee you’ll feel great when you see a giant smile spread across their face all because of you. Be generous with your compliments. Make them genuine and plentiful.
2.) Smile at everyone you come in contact with.
I’m not saying go down the street smiling at every single person who locks eyes with you… because then you come off a tad crazy. But smile at the cashier, the person bagging your groceries, the owner of the dog you just pet. Smiling goes a long way, for everyone.
3.) Watch the sunrise.
Whether this means staying up all night with a group of your friends, or setting your alarm for 5:30 am, do it. Go outside and watch the sunrise, at least every once in a while. It’s a humbling experience. You realize how big the world is in comparison to yourself, and that it’s always the darkest before the dawn. And you may even catch the most beautiful starry night before the sun peaks up over the horizon.
4.) “This too shall pass.”
The phrase that gets me through everything. Reminds you that even your darkest moments will pass. You will survive. Life goes on.
5.) Live a healthy lifestyle.
I’m not saying go all out and exercise seven times a week, count calories, go vegan. But maybe grab an apple in the morning. Go for a jog. Meet up with some friends and go to the gym. Decide to sleep instead of open the fridge for a midnight snack. You’ll start to feel better. Especially when people begin complimenting you on the change and when you start realizing it yourself.
6.) Help someone in need.
Whatever the need is. Whether this means volunteering at a soup kitchen, going abroad to a country you feel called to, or simply lending an ear to a friend who really needs to talk to somebody. You’ll feel better when you help someone else who needs it.
7.) Surround yourself with positivity.
If you are surrounding yourself with people who are bringing you down, who don’t motivate you, and don’t make you feel important - stop hanging around them. Find those who will lift you up. Write down quotes that inspire you. Forgive those who hurt you in the past - not because they deserve it, but because you deserve not to be burdened by this negativity. Happiness is a choice. Choose it.
