1. "We fought, holy shit we fought but damn, we loved. We loved more than anything; I think that makes all the fighting okay; we fought because we cared. Our arguments were filled with passion and this strange fucked-up way of saying ‘I love you.’"
    something my ex once said to me that I think about a lot (via phyerfly)
  2. "I don’t owe people anything, and I don’t have to talk to them any more than I feel I need to."

Just a pool, disguised as a pond, with a trampoline instead of a diving board.
I wrote a paper about these kinds of pools several years ago for a class when they were just prototypes. These pools have a natural filtration system that run based on the plants that are in the pool that give the water nutrients that allow it to not only be crystal clear, but you are also able to drink the water because it becomes so clean. And the best part is that once the initial filtration system is installed and calibrated, it maintains itself and eliminates the need for chlorine or constant maintenance like salt water pools.

Here’s where Tumblr’s going to be at San Diego Comic-Con this week:
The MTV Fan Fest party on Thursday at 7 p.m.
The official orphanblack #CloneClub Meetup on Friday at 1 p.m.
Pacific time, obviously. Surf’s up.
Before that happens, though, some classic fandoms are duking it out on Tumblr for the B.F.F. Award at the mtvU Fandom Awards. It’ll decide which group of people, all of whom like the same thing, collectively like their thing the most. Voting ends tonight, so this is completely your last chance ever to show how much you like the thing you like.
Searches for the meanwhile: fandom awards, sdcc, cloneclub meetup, 
See you in San Diego!
