In a certain sense I am [fatalistic], I don’t exactly know how to explain it, but I have a hunch there are some things in life that we just can’t avoid. They’ll happen to us, probably because we’re built that way - we simply attract our own fate… make our own destiny… I think I’m like the Aztecs in that respect too. With their sense of doom, they tried to get the most out of life while life was good. And I go along with them on that philosophy. I don’t mean that ‘eat, drink, and be merry for tomorrow we die’ idea, but something a lot deeper and more valuable. I want to live as intensely as I can. Be as useful and helpful to others as possible, for one thing. But I live for myself as well. I want to feel things and experience right down to their roots… enjoy the good in life while it is good. - James Dean
you all need to stop settling
stop putting yourself in the presence of people who make you feel confused or less-than
don’t try to salvage a friendship if they make you feel like shit
don’t try to get into the brain of someone who’s closing themselves off to you
don’t try to…

Calcium is better derived from plant foods. The bioavailability of milk calcium is relatively low compared to several types of vegetables rich in calcium (eg, broccoli), which means that whereas milk is rich in calcium, it cannot be absorbed and used by our bodies very well. Animal-protein sources, including dairy products, meat and eggs, can also cause a significant loss of calcium through the kidneys because of a high amount of sulfurous amino acids. The facts are clear: the protein content that milk is praised for makes the absorption of the calcium in milk more difficult and even causes a net loss of calcium! In fact, the osteoporosis rates are the highest in countries where people drink the largest amounts of milk and lowest where people drink the least amounts of milk.
this is the greatest thing ever written.
