The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier is a monument in dedication to the services of an unknown soldier, Marine, airman or sailor and to the common memories of all soldiers, Marines, airmen and sailors killed in any war. Throughout history, many soldiers have died in wars with their remains being unidentified. The tomb is guarded 24/7 365. Even through hurricanes as a sign of respect.
These soldiers stand guard, day and night, through blistering heat and freezing cold. They stand in driving rain without flinching. It is one of the highest honors to guard the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, and there are no excuses, no rainy days. One year, a really bad hurricane swept through the coast and the soldiers were given permission to leave their post. They declined, choosing to stay and guard the tomb.
These men inspire me and have my utmost respect. Thank you.

I understand where this is coming from but hour glass figures like this do exist. They’re just not as common as Disney would have us believe. I myself have a very small waist for my busy and go ratio but I am plus sized.

Oddly enough for my sociology course “Violence Against Women” I have to write a paper on the messages fairy tales give to young men and women & connect that (when I can) to issues of adolescent dating violence. Specific body types being what require you to be beautiful was one of the messages since the “evil stepsisters” were always short, ugly, etc. while the princesses were tall, blonde, thin, pretty, etc. step sisters don’t get a happy ending- princesses get a happy ending.

So this essay I have due tomorrow that has to be finished tonight because I have no other chance to do it is not going well at all. :\
Awesome. It isn’t even noon and I’m an a-1 screw up
I am insanely tired and dizzy and spaced out and stressed.
My alarm went off this morning at 5:30 because I have a paper to write, but I didn’t get out of bed until like 8. I was supposed to talk about some medical stuff with someone today & spend the night at my mum’s, but now I’m working.
If I die, please cremate me & if any of my organs are able to be donated, go ahead and let them do so. I don’t care if it seems like an awful thing to do. I have been useless my entire life, so if my organs are viable for donation to help save someone else’s life, then it better happen.
