"A mistake repeated more than once is a decision."
Paulo Coelho (via alltheextrastuff)
Trying to be more positive in 2014!
"when the sleazy man on the bus smirks at you
do not smile back
ignore him and look out of the window.
when the man in the shadow of midnight tells you he
will not hurt you
do not believe him
when a man at the party offers you the drink in his hand
do not accept it
say you are capable of getting your own.
when the man at the dressing room
says you need a bigger size
do not take his advice
buy the dress.
when the man at the supermarket
offers you a lift home
do not get in his car
go back inside the supermarket
and get security to walk you out.
when the drunk man on the street
whistles at you
do not take it as a compliment
you are not a dog
when the man with the blue eyes
you just met at the bar
asks you to come back to his apartment
do not accept the offer
you are not a rent for the night.
when the man you have known for 2 years
calls you beautiful at 1am
with dried tears and smudged makeup on your cheeks
do not let him go
A little reminder I wrote to every girl out there (via fassadenmensch)
Industrial designer Scott Summit, of Summit ID, creates incredibly beautiful prosthetic pieces. They are created on a 3D printer, with the user’s other limbs as a point of reference, resulting in beautifully symmetric limbs.
His philosophy of creating personal and elegant rather than mass-produced, functional pieces really shows through the grace of his work.
Some of the more beautiful things that come out of this philosophy range from recreating a tattoo that was lost to matching a purse to looking like a piece of sport equipment: whatever is important and personal to the wearer’s life become reflected in their new prosthetic limb.
