The mightiest warrior, Sir Pigglesworth.

i didn’t know what i needed to see to motivate me this morning. Apparently it was a cavy in bronze scale. Gods bless.

He is a noble knight in days of old!

If your blog can’t have a guinea pig is scale mail armor on it, I don’t know what kind of joyless, forsaken blog you run. But I want no part in it.

is no one talking about the fact that it’s sitting on a pillow printed with another guinea pig’s face

This is informative as heck. Show this to everyone!

This is actually some great info! Why can’t they teach this kind of thing in school??

Wow, I’ve taken health and sex ed three times during my educational process and never learned any of this. Thanks.

Definitely some important information here!

this is supa awesome.  i do think it should be noted that side effects of EC *really* vary.  when I took EC I didn’t have any symptoms whatsoever.

This is my comic Blame. It’s taken me a VERY long time to create this (mentally not physically. Physically it only took me a little over a week to draw).

Just reblogging this because no one gets to see it when it’s buried in my blog, and the whole point of the comic was to make me tell people.

Watch the whole talk here»

Almost 20 years ago, writer Andrew Solomon fell into a deep depression. In this talk from TEDxMet, he speaks eloquently and openly about his struggle with “the family secret we all share,” but that no one wants to talk about. If you are a human or know a human, you have to watch this talk, but — be warned — you might just find yourself in tears.

Oh so real.

This is all relevant for anxiety disorders as well

This is so weird, my counsellor was just suggesting I read his book.

So I may have possibly previously mentioned a certain productivity-enhancing extension so you all know I’m Good for this, right, I know what I’m talking about, I got the goods, slyly opens trenchcoat

It’s 2014 and everyone’s talking about how they’re gonna make it their year - well HabitRPG is one of the best productivity tools I’ve ever used and it makes even the most difficult and laborious of tasks so much easier, and helps beat procrastination like nothing else I’ve ever used.

It’s free, so you might as well give it a try before you go back to school, college, or work!

This is really cute, but I know I definitely wouldn’t be using it for its intended purpose…

I am so awful I don’t have the attention span to use HabitRPG

OKAY HERE’S THE THING ABOUT THIS BROWSER GAME

this thing right here dragged me out of my most recent depressive episode. it makes it so i’m not just accountable to myself, which some of you might already know can be destructive when ‘myself’ doesn’t give a shit.

if used properly, it helps me get out of bed and do my laundry and do all those basic little things i need done, and it legitimately destroys my ability to sit there thinking about how awful i am and about how i don’t deserve things like video games and fun nights out or even time to relax alone. because there is fundamental proof right there that i do lots of productive things every day! i wouldn’t have the gold i’m using on fun stuff if i didn’t!

like yes i know brains can be difficult to deal with, and this sort of thing isn’t helpful for everybody. but i’ve been dealing with my own brain for my entire life and i’m amazed at how effectively i was able to redirect my focus and get back on track with this silly little game, just by being able to visualize my personal progress. so yeah, try it out.

I love this idea.

This is fantastic!!!
