So my Husband just went through the worst year of medical school, and at the beginning of medical school he promised himself that if he made it this far he would finally get something for himself, like his first smartphone. And now it’s my birthday and he’s all “let’s get you something” and I’m all ‘GOSH DARN IT WE NEED TO GET SOMETHING FOR YOU!” and he replied “yeah but we don’t have the money”
And here’s me searching for extra jobs so I can get him something fancy and I just am like
I took my little brother (who falls on the autism spectrum) to see Guardians of the Galaxy and after this scene he lit up like a Christmas tree and screamed “He’s like me! He can’t do metaphors!” And for the rest of the film my brother stared at Drax in a state of rapture.
So for the last 6 days I have heard my brother repeatedly quote all of the Drax lines from the movie verbatim (one of his talents), begin studying vocabulary test words, and tell everyone he knows that people with autism can also be superheroes.
Now I am not saying that Drax the Destroyer is, or was ever, intended to be autistic. All I am saying is that it warmed my heart to see my brother have an opportunity to identify himself with a character known for his strength, bada**ness, and honor. And that is pretty darn awesome.
So while I adored Guardians of the Galaxy as a great fun loving film with cool characters I can do nothing but thank Marvel Studios and Dave Bautista for finally bringing a superhero to the screen that my little brother can relate to.
Let this be a sign, Let this road be mine
I absolutely love this.
OH MY GOODNESS
Well, that was unexpected.
whAT EVEN IS GOING ON>??
ok I’ve seen this like 8 times on my dash and ignored it but now I finally watched it because I was like “okay this has to be SOMETHING good because everyone I fucking follow is reblogging it”
I was not f***ing let down at all.
What has this website done to me?
This is perfect.
IT WORKED FOR ME! AND IF I CAN DO IT ANYONE CAN
…Wouldn’t you rather be healthy than skinny?
There is an explanation for this!
Passing through a doorway, whether we’re entering or exiting, creates something called an “event boundary” in our mind. That event boundary “separates episodes of activity and files them away.” It’s just one of the many tricks our brain uses to keep life organized. Our mind parses events out with “event boundaries” to help us sort through thoughts and memories.
