I am currently training to run my first half marathon and raise money for RAINN! Please consider clicking here to donate to my campaign. ♥
This is my personal tumblr, which is mostly comprised of crying over attractive people and wailing about puppies. I'm currently chronicling my journey of overcoming abuse, PTSD, depression, anxiety, and learning to love myself by living a healthier lifestyle on my health and fitness tumblr.
Check out my art website here or my art tag here.
You can buy my art here or here.
Commissions are open and available here.
This is my convention schedule so you can check which cons I'll be selling my art at! :)
If you're looking for something, check my tags or send me an ask at any time! ♥
I am leaving for Disneyland to run my half marathon next Friday, in just a week! The actual race is next Sunday.
Currently, I have raised $370 of my original $500 goal to benefit RAINN, the largest organization working to end sexual violence in the US. I would love to push all the way and raise $500 for RAINN, as it is a cause I am very passionate about.
Some facts about sexual violence that have been personally eye-opening for me (source):
- Every 2 minutes, someone is sexually assaulted in the United States.
- 44% of victims are under the age of 18.
- 80% are under the age of 30.
- 97% of rapists will never go to jail.
Please consider donating, sharing my story, or spreading the word. Sexual violence ends when we stop sweeping the act under the rug and realize that talking about it is one of the keys to healing.
DONATE HERE: http://rainnmakers.rainn.org/mcbenik
Every $10 donated goes directly to funding one survivor, meaning 37 people have already begun their road to recovery.
I’m running in my first half marathon next weekend! I have been working to raise $500 for the charity RAINN while doing so, and I’m almost there! Please consider donating/sharing/etc, thank you! <3
People are giving Wilson money to thank him for killing an unarmed black teenager. Please report this to GoFundMe, as it violates their Terms of Service and they get 5% of the tens of thousands of dollars being donated. Click to report.

This is my message, in case you want to copy and paste:
Your Terms of Service prohibit “items that promote… hate, racial intolerance, or the financial exploitation of a crime.” Take a look at the comments that come with the donations on this page and tell me that doesn’t violate your terms. “Support Officer Wilson” is a thin veil for people rewarding Wilson for killing a black kid.
The saddest thing is that most people will find this humorous instead of serious. We’re standing right beside one another, and yet we text others instead of actually speaking to each other. Have you ever sat down and thought about how uncomfortable we now are around one another that it’s so bad that we literally pretend to be texting someone when we’re not, just so it’s less awkward to stand beside people? What’s supposed to strengthen our bonds has taken away from it. It’s time to take our faces out of our phones and notice the world, give a kind gesture to someone, and go SEE your friends instead of just texting them.
I’m going to let that sink in.
Ah yes let me just up and leave school right in between my classes so I can go see the friend 40 miles away that i’m currently texting instead of making idle chit chat with the people around me that I don’t particularly care for.
Fuck your pretentious shit.
"whines evil technology is making people antisocial its not real communication if its not face to face and im a pretentious self righteous shitbaby that asks random people on the street for the time and feels good about it"
What they won’t show you on CNN tonight: Ferguson residents line a parade of roses down W Florissant, leading to where Mike Brown was taken from this world. #staywoke #powerful #insolidarity

Ferguson’s public library welcomes students and teachers this week, while schools are still closed.
If you’re reading this, chances are very high that your home has at least one — and maybe more! — magic appliance that produces clean water suitable for drinking. That’s one reason to avoid paying for bottled water.
Another reason? There’s a good chance the water you’re buying at the supermarket was bottled in California, a state currently enduring a severe drought.

EVERYONE PLEASE AT LEAST TAKE A QUICK SECOND TO LOOK AT THIS
BECAUSE IT IS EFFECTING THE EXACT AREA I LIVE IN
Lots of people believe bottled water is safer and cleaner than tap water, when in reality there’s no evidence proving such a thing.
Penn & Teller’s Bullshit!: Bottled Water segment, gives a very good and thorough summary of the bottled water culture https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MHx6BX3HZJc
You want better water? Buy a Zero filter. SRSLY. Stop buying bottled if possible. You need water with you? Get reusable acrylic or glass water bottles (wrapped in a silicon sleeve) and fill it up from your filter pitcher. SAVE MONEY, SAVE MY STATE
In response to the GoFundMe Campaign for Darren Wilson, people are asking GoFundMe to close the account due to the fact that it incites hate and obviously violates their terms and conditions
The donors and the comments attached to the campaign are sick and simply racist. They asking for the “Killing of N*****s”, “purging the savages” and to support a “fellow White” individual that has the right to murder Black people.
Pass this around. Report the Darren Wilson page as for the violation
I will add their contact info as soon as I find it.
Thank you so fucking much.

It really warms my heart to see the library looking out for its community in the light of everything happening in Ferguson.
EDIT: Be sure to follow Ferguson Library on twitter.
I want support for ugly girls and lazy girls and girls that can’t ever get their eyeliner right. I want feminism that includes girls who are too big or too black to be on body positive blogs.
I want girls with acne scars and girls who don’t “pass” and girls with facial hair. I want girls who are, in fact, man hating lesbians. I want poor girls.
I need the girls who never took a course in gender studies but who still know the way that society treats them is bullshit.
It doesn’t feel like a revolution when we’re only showing more of the same, when we only raise up the voices of some women.
I need to do better. We all need to do better.
Rocket is the heart of the movie in a lot of ways. - James Gunn
"I’m one of those people that thinks the world changes in smaller and in more
mysterious ways than a lot of people like to think. A lot of traditional charities
and organizations do things that on the surface seem like a good idea, but it
doesn’t change the way that people think about interacting with other people.
