REASONS WHY YOU NEED TO READ PARANATURAL
paranatural is my life and tbh it should be yours too
try to wake up happy. drink water. take long showers until your skin gets wrinkled. wear cute underwear. look at old pictures to see how much you’ve grown. grow your hair out. cut your hair off. find a perfume that smells how summer feels. if scales are your enemy, get rid of them. make your body strong, not perfect. challenge yourself to say three nice things about yourself each day. don’t compare yourself to others—they are not you. they will never be you. get rid of magazines that make you feel bad.
learn to love spending time with yourself. take yourself out to dinner. take yourself to the movies. take yourself to a museum and look at the pieces without having to stick to anyone’s schedule but your own. wear clothes you love. wear colors. smile at strangers. they will smile back. make small talk. don’t worry if people think you’re weird for asking the cashier how their day is going. give compliments. learn how to accept a compliment. organize your closet. get rid of clothes that remind you of negative points in your life. get rid of things that remind you of negative people in your life.
walk more. read more. sit outside more. feel the sun on your shoulders more. take pictures. you have a beautiful life. you have a beautiful soul. document it. make sure you are in the pictures. sing in public. realize that you see hundreds of faces every day and of those faces, approximately none of them will remember that you tripped walking up the stairs this morning. forgive yourself. even confident people get embarrassed. everyone gets embarrassed.
remember that no one ever knows exactly who they are. it is okay to feel lost. it is okay to feel confused. it is not okay to berate yourself for feeling that way.
love yourself. love others.

Scientists Discover Happiest Puppy
Twice in the past editors at The Fluffington Post have thought they had discovered the happiest dog on earth: once a year ago and then again four months ago. Not so, say scientists at Sapienza University of Rome, who point to Ellie, whose happiness levels are off the charts.
"Ellie may literally be the happiest dog alive right now," said researcher Salvatore Magliocco. "Ellie’s showing extremely elevated levels of serotonin and an increased number of endorphins. She’s just really happy, all the time."
Off the charts happy, according to Magliocco, who says that Ellie’s general mood is unprecedented. When compared to other dogs on record, Ellie is nearly twice as happy by most metrics.
"She never seems sad," he said. "We’d expect this amount of happiness to come with some manic tendencies, but she’s all peaks, no valleys. This is just one happy dog!"
WHERE are they getting this stuff !!
Aasif Mandvi interviews Fox Business commentator, Todd Wilemon.
I watched The Wind Rises yesterday and I just dont understand how this or any miyazaki film for that matter, isn’t the standard for western story-telling in animation today. The main problem i have with movies here is the abuse of gags and the constant need for action in place of tender, vulnerable moments. Of course, that’s not to say that there hasnt been something like the latter recently, but you know, i just hate how the bulk of animated films now is to cater to making trilogy franchise-s that lack engaging storytelling rather than one that evokes important themes that we can all dwell and grow from, regardless of age.
ANYWAY though, The Wind Rises was achingly beautiful and moving. The characters were very forward and honest. There was so much heart and passion with each of them that it’s impossible not to connect. One of the things that I’m a huge fan of in Miyazaki’s film is his use of nuances in action, dialogue, and symbolism. It just feels SO GOOD watching so many of them in this movie. I love that the film takes more than 10 minutes without dialogue to show vivid imagery. I love that the dialogue is ALWAYS meaningful even if its just the character talking about how the umbrella sucks because its leaking. I love how the perspective of the film highlights the beauty of life despite being set in an era of despair and destruction. I just really really love that the story is so very human.
I could go on for days about my love for miyazaki and his craft but I’ll end it here for a lack of time. Sorry for the rant guys! Obviously, feel free to disagree~ I’m always up for discussions uvu also, i’ll probably make a separate blog for movie feels so that I don’t have to clog your dashboards with rambling haha
