"When life gives you lemons, make lemonade."

"But I can’t make lemonade unless life gives me water and sugar too"

No. 

Noooo. 

You are entirely missing the point.  

It is up to you to go get that. Take what you have available to you and make it something better. Because, reality check, life doesn’t hand you all your granted wishes on a silver platter. Life is an open hand on which you are so fortunately given the opportunity to place that silver platter. You know, after you go get it.

So, I literally beg of you, stop trying to be witty and just go get it. 

Go get the water and the sugar to make your lemonade. And one day when you finally earn that silver platter, you know what you’re going to find? A nice cool glass of lemonade. 

Amen.

This is actually really important for people to understand. I need feminism because I used to say things like “I can’t wait until I have a boyfriend cheat on me just so I can slap a guy in the face”. I though it was disgusting and despicable for a man to slap a woman, but if a woman was slapping a man somehow that was okay. Even empowering.  

But it’s not. It’s never okay. And I’m really glad that I changed my point of view and got educated, which is why I try to educate others too.

"Leave the saving of the world to the men?

I don’t think so…”

Leave it to a bunch of white characters basically.

there’s a fucking hippo on there and you’re complaining about fucking white people get the fuck out of here

There’s also a toy, a fish, ant and a goddamn lego. Not to mention OP likely put their favorite characters but course tumblr feels must be hurt someway.

Not to mention the hippo is indeed voiced by a black woman

Fiona is fucking green get the hell out of here

Might i add theres also fucking ants.

 ANTS.

Reblogging for commentary!

This machine allows anyone to work for minimum wage for as long as they like. Turning the crank on the side releases one penny every 4.97 seconds, for a total of $7.25 per hour. This corresponds to minimum wage for a person in New York. This piece is brilliant on multiple levels, particularly as social commentary. Without a doubt, most people who started operating the machine for fun would quickly grow disheartened and stop when realizing just how little they’re earning by turning this mindless crank. A person would then conceivably realize that this is what nearly two million people in the United States do every day…at much harder jobs than turning a crank. This turns the piece into a simple, yet effective argument for raising the minimum wage.

god damn

I would bring my laptop over, sit my ass down, and work on my arm muscles and my netflix queue.
