in honor of Mean Girls’ 10th anniversary, here’s an incredibly subtle but completely extraordinary joke that you’ve probably never noticed from the movie (I saw it at least a dozen times before it dawned on me): Regina George started a rumor that Janis Ian was a lesbian in the 8th grade, but it wasn’t out of malice… it was because Janis told her that she was Lebanese

It was an accident.
look if you unironically say ‘money can’t buy happiness’ then either you’ve never faced a real financial struggle or you’ve achieved enlightenment, because goddamn does financial security feel an awful lot like happiness when it’s something you’re not used to
I just want to say that comfort is not the same thing as happiness. Yes you will feel happy if you go from being unable to make yourself comfortable and feed yourself, to being able to make yourself comfortable and feel yourself. But feeling happy is not the same thing as being fulfilled/being happy. Of course you need money and you need shelter and you need to be able to feed yourself and you will feel happy if you are able to tip a waiter or take your friends out for a meal.
But acutal self-fulfillment and true happiness will never come from a number on a bank statement and it will never come from a big house and it will not even come from eating three delicious meals every day.
Do not ever confuse self-fulfillment with simply feeling happy.
Money cannot buy actual happiness.
my yearbook teacher (who loves school of rock (seriously its like his favorite movie)) was bein’ all down on one of my friends today so i was like ‘mr t, you’re the man’ and he kept on being like ‘what? what are you talking about’ and i just said ‘think about your favorite movie and who the man was in that movie’ and he goes ‘oh, thank you. you’re the man too.’
i think i visit my blog more than anyone else does
