dear tumblr friends, followers, real world buddies, and online cats, thanks for being awesome. i love the things you have to say, and you are such good people. sometimes running into toxic people and being around insular group-thinkers can be a drain, but then i remember the wonderful, incredible people i know. thanks for reminding me! you are inspiring.
