We really didn’t have enough money, enough people, or enough time for our road trip. I almost called it off when I originally started planning it. But there will never be a good time to travel the country for four weeks, just like there will never be a good time to quit your job, read that book, or join a gym. You will probably never have enough money, time, connections, willpower, whatever—to feel ready to make a dream happen. And this is the lesson I learned: eventually you have to stop giving yourself excuses and make the jump.
FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO ASKED …
Yes, White Men had plenty of disregard and disrespect to go around.
And for those of you who are wondering when and How the Irish Became White in America…
Tbh I don’t even understand how Jews claim White.
Some don’t actually. A few of my Jewish friends (one is half Yemenite Jewish-half Russian Jewish and the other is a Portuguese-Polish-Ukrainian Jew) and both of them see themselves as PoC.
White history is absolute shit.
This 144-Year-Old Wisteria In Japan Looks Like A Pink Sky
These stunning photographs, which look like a glorious late evening sky with dashes of pink and purple, are actually pictures of Japan’s largest wisteria (or wistaria, depending on whom you ask) plant.
This plant, located in Ashikaga Flower Park in Japan, is certainly not the largest in the world, but it still comes in at an impressive 1,990 square meters (or half an acre) and dates back to around 1870 (the largest, at about 4,000 square meters, is the wisteria vine in Sierra Madre, California). Although wisterias can look like trees, they’re actually vines. Because its vines have the potential to get very heavy, this plant’s entire structure is held up on steel supports, allowing visitors to walk below its canopy and bask in the pink and purple light cast by its beautiful hanging blossoms.

ohhhhh Japan. You and I need to meet
How beautiful would it be to find someone who’s in love with your mind.
It’s a really beautiful thing in fact.
The most ignored words in the world.
I really want an environmental revolution to happen soon. Gardens everywhere, herbal wisdom flourishing, intelligent environmental policies, aggressive fighting for plants, straying away from reliance on shady food industries and growing our own to help our own and nurture our own, we see everything, how it’s made and who it goes to cause it’s ours typa shit. I really want this.
