And that brings me to the most important point: women have never had a culture of leisure. Our time has always been fragmented. And women the world over feel they don’t deserve leisure, they must instead earn it by getting to the end of a To Do list – which of course never ends.

Stop, right now, in the middle of your crazy day where you’ve only gotten two things on your list done, and take a walk. There is no end; there is not finish line, just another race waiting. So stop. Breathe.

We’ve been taught a woman’s body will cause men to sin. We’re told that if a woman shows too much of her body men will do stupid things. Let’s be clear: A woman’s body is not dangerous to you. Her body will not cause you harm. It will not make you do stupid things. If you do stupid things, it is because you chose to do stupid things.

 personally I hate twilight but this one character is a legend.

who the books should have really been about…papa swan dealing with his idiot daughter and her crazy immortal boyfriend and her bff that becomes a giant dog and him just being a sarcastic as fuck small town cop trying to make sure not everyone fucks shit up

Please. Someone make this movie or book it whatever. Because THIS is the only character I think I could relate to in those crap-tastic books.

If it weren’t for the color pencils placed beside these incredible drawings, it would be all too easy to assume you were looking at macro photos. These awesome hyperrealistic eyes are the work of Texas-based graffiti artist and illustrator Redosking. The longer we look at them, the more we have to refer back to the color pencils to remind ourselves that they really are flat illustrations.

Check out more of Redosking’s impressive artwork by following him on Facebook or Instagram.
