With less than 4,000 left in the wild, tigers are in real danger of extinction. You can make a difference in saving tigers.
- Share your love of tigers and spread the word about the threats they face.
- Do not purchase products that put tigers at risk and encourage others not to, either.
- Support programs like the San Diego Zoo Global Wildlife Conservancy that fund conservation work to help save tigers.

Ginny Weasley & Tom Riddle
I thought it was really cool and kinda cute until I realized it was Ginny and Tom, then it became horrific. I love it.
This is BY FAR the best fan art I have ever seen. You don’t realise what it is until you properly look at it.
robin williams died today.
here is a list of things that robin williams was:
- and sad.
that’s important, the “and sad,” because sometimes sadness can feel like the only thing we are. it can feel all-encompassing. it can feel like the only thing anyone could possibly see, when they look at you: sad. that person is so, so, sad.
but there is always an “and.” we are never just sad. we are never only. we are always and.
we have all known people who were sad, who are sad; some of us are ourselves sad. being sad does not remove the other parts of us, though it can make them harder for us to see. when you are sad, you don’t necessarily feel like you are also funny, and sharp, and clever, and kind.
but you still are. you don’t have to feel like something to be it.
those things are written on your bones, they are woven into the fabric of your skin. sadness can feel so big, so big and overwhelming and complete, even when it is not a directed sadness. maybe especially when it is not a directed sadness, when it’s a depression that has no direct cause and nothing we can name.
sometimes the sadness is too big. people try to cut it out, or starve it out, or drink it down, or drug it silent. if this is you: i’m sorry. if this is you: you are not alone. if this is you: remember that the solution is never to give up, because you do not live in a vacuum. there are people waiting for you. there are films and songs and books and not-sadness waiting for you. i know that you don’t feel like waiting, but wait anyway.
if you need help, ask for it. here’s a link to crisis centers across the globe. if you live in the U.S., this is the national suicide prevention hotline: 1-800-273-8255.
robin williams died today, but the genie didn’t, and mrs. doubtfire didn’t, and peter pan didn’t. sean maquire didn’t, and professor philip brainard didn’t, and alan parrish didn’t. batty koda didn’t. john keating didn’t. you didn’t.
don’t.i wasn’t going to reblog anymore on this but i read this and i feel like there are probably some folks on here who might need to read it, too.
When you feel you have lost everything, you still have
- unexpected kindness in strangers
- the rest of the world to travel
- languages to learn
- animals to take care of
- volunteer work to do
- the power of a good night’s rest
- the changing of seasons
- infinite things to learn
- billions of people to meet and possibly love
- billions of people who might love you back
Needed this today

ISN’T GERMAN A CUTE LANGUAGE
DO YOU KNOW THE GERMAN WORD FOR BAT
HOW IS THAT NOT JUST KAWAII AS HECK
My favorite is their word for bagpipes.
But then their word for skull is Totenkopf, as in Death’s Head.
So German basically has two settings, kawaii and metal, and there is no in between.
I love German.
Reblogging for the German lesson.
My favorite metal mode word is das Zahnfleisch, literally tooth flesh, the gums.
