Way way way too excited to roleplay vampires some more this weekend.
“Louisa May Alcott wrote Little Women for the money. And it made her miserable.
— Ten Things You Didn’t Know About Books and Authors You Had to Read in High School (via bookriot)
As a young writer, Alcott concentrated on lurid pulp stories of revenge, murder, and adultery–“blood and thunder” literature, as she called i–and enjoyed writing very much. She was in her mid 30s when an editor suggested she try writing a book for girls. Alcott wasn’t very interested, but her father was a complete moron with money and had left the family in terrible financial trouble. Alcott wrote Little Women in hopes of some decent sales and a little breathing room and got way more than she asked for. The money in sequels was too good to turn down (and her father didn’t get any smarter with a dime), but Alcott hated writing what she called “moral pap for the young” and longed to return to the smut and violence of her early endeavors.”

getting back up. dusting it off. my dad used to tell me the most important part of any of it was getting back up on the horse- i didnt grow up on a farm- but it still applied. david vs. goliath, us vs them, you vs. the world… brains, talent and luck are great but heart will always trump them. that is the sentiment of this video. thank you for bearing with us while we finished it… the greatest story ever to me will always be the unexpected… when the loser wins, when the clouds clear the day might just turn out alright…
Watch the video for Centuries + look out for the surprise guest appearance from Rick Ross

My motherfucking fridge is broken. All the food I had in there had mold on it when I tried to make dinner tonight. My three-day-old milk had gone sour. Even my gods-curst cheese was bad. Thankfully I’m headed home for the weekend tomorrow. With luck the housemates will be able to hound maintenance into fixing it by the time I’m back.
