SO I BUSTED OUT ONE OF MY LAST CANS OF TAB LIKE A OLD MAN WOULD A OLD BOTTLE OF WHISKEY TO CELEBRATE THE NEWS

BUT AFTER I ONLY TAKE A FEW SIPS I NOTICE A SPIDER ON MY WALL AND I DECIDE TO BE NICE AND TAKE A PIECE OF PAPER AND WAS PLANNING ON CALMLY TAKING IT OUTSIDE BUT THIS 8 LEGGED ASSHOLE

JUMPS INTO MY CAN AND DROWNS

SO NOT ONLY IS MY DRINK RUINED BUT NOW I FEEL LIKE THIS IS HORRIBLE COSMIC FORESHADOWING

AND I DONT KNOW WHICH IS WORSE 

IT’S A SIGN FROM GOD

ARANEA FALLS IN THE LAVA AND DIES

she come in my garden everyday and sit in front of me while I work on my sketchbook. she doesn’t want food, she just sit there looking at me. today I covered her in flower and we were both happy.

Maybe she’s your guardian angel.. I mean srsly. Just look at this cat. 

There is way too much intelligence in those eyes. There is a goddess in your garden.

So I have a guardian angel and it comes in the form a cat. sweet

It’s not the fact it exists, but that two stakes are missing

…some stories are best left unspoken. This one is going to drive me crazy, though….

This is actually sadly relevant. I had a lecture this summer about sign languages and Deaf culture and when I was finished, one hearing girl from the audience stayed behind to ask me some more question.
She asked me: “And your parents use sign language, right?” Like it was the most obvious thing in the world and why is she even asking this, of course my parents must know sign language.
"No… They don’t, actually."
"And how do you communicate, then?"
"Talking?"
"But… isn’t that complicated for you?"
"It is, sometimes."
"They probably didn’t have time for it…" she said. And I haven’t the heart to tell her that my father was offered sign language courses several times, that I offered to teach them some signs and that they always refused.
But I did told her: “It is not that rare. Most of deaf people I know have hearing parents who don’t sign.”
It’s the sad truth. People are willing to pay for surgeries to “repair” their children, but they are not willing to learn something to communicate with them.

i’d like to add onto this with my own personal experience, too. i was born hearing, but as soon as i was diagnosed as HoH, my parents didn’t do anything to learn ASL. they were quick to put me in classes, but they wouldn’t when i suggested to them that they take the classes with me so that we could learn.
i’ve tried to teach my mom how to sign numerous times, but she always says that “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks,” to which i tell her that she can learn, she just doesn’t want to. which is true. neither of my parents want to learn how to sign, but they want me to be able to hear perfectly so they don’t have to repeat themselves.
little do they know that their frustration with me not being able to hear them would be solved if they would just learn how to sign. maybe signing something to me once instead of repeating themselves four times and then getting mad would be more beneficial.

I’m absolutely shocked at this, it’s never crossed my mind that many parents wouldn’t even try to meet their hard of hearing kids halfway.

What the fuck kind of parenting is that? I’m appalled. 
Listen, man. If you’re going to be a parent, then that means you have to be prepared to pull your finger out and do things for them, even when it’s inconvenient for you. Your kid didn’t ask to be lumped in with you; you did that, and now you’re going to have to do everything you can to make that kid’s life as decent and balanced and good as you can possibly manage. That’s what being a parent means. Your kids don’t owe you shit. 
Now normally when I explain that it’s because someone is bitching and whining about having an ungrateful child who doesn’t want to do X, Y or Z with them or for them or who isn’t living up to expectations, like that child is indebted to them because they fulfilled the basic criteria of human decency by raising them with some semblance of compassion and care, but this? Horrendous. 
I’m sorry, does learning a new skill so that you can communicate with your child seem like it’s above and beyond somehow? Sorry, matey, but it isn’t. You’re a parent, this is your job. Pull your fucking socks up. 

It’s funny… As a child, i would have given the world to be able to take classes so that i could sign with my friend instead of write messages… She’s my friend, not a teacher, so i didn’t expect her to teach me much past the alphabet and a few words/phrases…

This is so sad.

This is fucked up
