so my boyfriend just sent me a link to this article about a new app called Kitestring. to quote the article, “you program the app with your emergency contacts, your location, and the duration of your trip. At a time you specify, Kitestring sends you a text just to, you know, check up on you. If you are able, you respond to the text and let them know all’s good. If you don’t respond to the text, the app alerts your emergency contacts.”
this is fucking rad for people like me who are scared to walk about alone especially in big towns and cities, and could be really really beneficial to a lot of other people, and yes it’s yet another “prevention” tool and that’s sad but who really cares, it could be life changing.
Anonymous asked: yeah that's exactly what it's like for me i just feel crazy all the time for hating girls i don't even know just cos i can see my boyfriend fancies them it's horrid!!! okay can i ask another if it's okay? where do you stand on porn? like what is your opinion about it in a relationship?
i dont agree with porn on any levels really, but im guessing you mean like is it bad if yr boyfriend watches porn? in which case no its not, try not to worry about it, its just the same as with the liking pictures thing, he might be watching porn but its you he’s fucking so (i know its rly hard to think like this but it will only get so much worse for you if you keep beating yrself up over it cos im speakin from 1st hand experience it is horrible) (also DONT COMPARE YRSELF TO PORNSTARS)
Anonymous asked: no no not sexual, just like advice I guess? basically I just identify to you quite a lot in terms of wen your written about being insecure about yourself compared to other girls, and my problem is that my boyfriend is always liking pictures of other girls on here and facebook and insta and everywhere and it really gets to me :( i just wondered if you had any experience similarly and what you suggest?
hahahaa yeah i have experienced this exactly. i would say to you that you have to remember all the time he’s liking those photos, he’s still choosin to be with you!! and i know it’s hard to make yrself believe that cos i do it myself haha but at the end of the day it’s you he’s with. i used to get myself really worked up over it and end up going crazy and punishing myself for it cos i was in the mindset that i didn’t look like her and that meant he didn’t want me (im crazy okay) but you need to forget about all of that and look at the facts. he’s with you. i only really struggled with seeing it on like the instagram following page so i just unfollowed my boyfriend, problem (somewhat) solved. and i also had a conversation with him about it and how it made me feel which when saying it out loud and hearing his responses made me feel like a total fucking idiot BUT thy kinda helped cos i realised how stupid i am for feeling this way. i bet yr boyfriend gets jealous when other boys hit on you etc yeh? hold onto that, it’s helped me loads
Anonymous asked: can i ask you relationship questions?
if by that you mean sexual questions then no. i only responded to those so i could track the person asking them on stat counter, which i have now done so have no need to respond anymore.
The Japanese cherry blossom, known as the Sakura in Japanese, is the flower of a cherry tree that is cultivated for its decorative features rather than for cherries (it doesn’t bear fruit). The overwhelming beauty of the cherry blossom bloom has been known and adored for ages. The blooming period is associated with Japanese traditions, culture, aesthetics, and is a bittersweet metaphor for the ephemeral nature of life itself.
The blooming cherry blossoms herald the beginning of the centuries-old Hanami festival – the traditional Japanese custom of picnicking under trees rich with flowering Sakura branches and enjoying this short but striking first breath of spring. The blossoming wave usually starts in Okinawa in January or February and progresses through all of Japan until April or May. The cherry blossom front (Sakura zensen) can be conveniently tracked every year using this calendar.
Anonymous asked: hi lucy! just wondering if you have any tips for getting the right tattoo. im thinking of getting my first one and im not sure what to look for in terms of artist and "precautions" i guess. im scared im gonna end up with a horrible tat (and yrs are amazing so thats why i came to you!!)
research the tattooist, look at lots of examples of their work and make sure you like everything they do even if it’s not something you’d personally get tattooed. that way you know whatever they do on you, yr gonna like it. research the shop, look out for negative feedback on it. be prepared to pay a decent amount, don’t go looking for who will do it the cheapest because you get what you pay for. what kind of style are you looking for/where do you live?
