Certain plants can purify the air taking out toxins or bad or stale air, these are some wonderful plants to keep around the home.
1. Bamboo Palm: It removes formaldahyde and is also said to act as a natural humidifier.
2. Snake Plant: It absorb nitrogen oxides and formaldahyde.
3. Areca Palm: One of the best air purifying plants for general air cleanliness.
4. Spider Plant: Great indoor plant for removing carbon monoxide and other toxins or impurities. Spider plants are one of three plants NASA deems best at removing formaldahyde from the air.
5. Peace Lily: Peace lilies could be called the “clean-all.” They’re often placed in bathrooms or laundry rooms because they’re known for removing mold spores. Also know to remove formaldahyde and trichloroethylene.
6. Gerbera Daisy: Not only do these gorgeous flowers remove benzene from the air, they’re known to improve sleep by absorbing carbon dioxide and giving off more oxygen over night.
It’s hilarious that non-Americans on Tumblr are all like “OMG DENNY’S TUMBLR MAKES ME WISH I LIVED IN AMERICA SO I COULD EAT THERE,” while us Americans will literally only eat at Dennys if it’s 3 in the morning and we’ve lost control of our life.
You don’t go to Denny’s. You end up at Denny’s.
And not that Denny’s. Let’s go to the good one across town.
The accuracy of this scares me so much
the world is incredible. there are girls in this world, and there are also dogs. you can put melted cheese on any type of potato. sometimes flowers grow even when nobody is there to water them. right now on this same planet where we live there are people who are in love with each other kissing each other on the nose. emotions and colours are both things that exist. everything is so great
just based on people’s icons the majority of my followers are lovely ladies and the rest are very cute boys <3
Inspired by every student whose told they can’t be an artist because it doesn’t “make enough money”.
People from middle and upper middle class can say these things and get away. People who don’t know what starting capital is can say these things. People who literally don’t know what its like to have nothing or to live in poverty can say these things.
You can’t follow your dreams without some start up cash from somewhere. And most people don’t have that. Like if money was no object and people could just ~live their dreams~ then why are there children starving in 1st world nations
It’s the social economic version of “just stop being depressed”
Actually reblogging again to add commentary:
"All you need is a house and food and a laptop".
And internet for the laptop. And electricity. And plumbing. And heat. And possibly has for your car. Oh and tabs and emissions if you have a car. Travel if you live away from family/friends or have a job that requires it but doesn’t pay for it.
And, hm, what else?
Medications. Doctor appointments. Replacement for things like canes and wheelchairs if they break and your insurance doesn’t cover it (oh, and if you’re self employed, you have to pay for insurance, too).
Not only is this super classist, it’s ableist as fuck.
And if you want a nice place to live it won’t be a house, and the rent for a reasonable apartment will cost more than you can make a month at minimum wage (which is statistically what most of our generation is earning now). You might cut car costs by living central to your work, but the rent will probably be higher; and if you get somewhere less central with lower rent you’ll probably need a car to get to and from work at least when the weather is terrible. Or spend so much time on city transit that there’s no damn time to ‘do what you love’.
And if you’re lucky enough to own a home, there’s the mortgage, the maintenance, and the property tax on top of the heat, lights, internet, phone, and water.
And a cell phone bill, because we live in a world where it’s an increasingly necessary thing to have (even a land line is expensive depending where you live).
And you’ll probably want to not die of a heart attack so you’ll want to afford fresh produce instead of processed foods.
And if your pet gets sick or needs a sudden vet trip you’ll want to have a bit of money set aside to be able to handle that - pets cost more than just friggin’ food.
And if you need mental health support you’re going to need to pay for counseling because the best help is rarely free.
And what if you have kids? They require food, clothes, doctor and dentist appointments, school supplies, toys…
And then there’s probably the student debt that will take you at least ten years to pay back, because learning to do what you love is never free and increasingly requires a degree of some kind for your resume.
And the initial set up cost if self-employment is going to be your thing. Expect tens of thousands of dollars if you want a business with a storefront.
Not everybody comes from a place where their parents help them get going, or will/can lend them money even for emergencies. People come from homes where they’re so busy being an adult that they don’t have energy for good marks in school, or time to volunteer and therefore don’t qualify for many scholarships. People have parents that want to help them financially but can’t. People have parents who won’t do anything for them except kick them out the door. People have others who rely on them, whether elderly relatives, siblings, or children of their own. These all have emotional, mental, and financial costs.
People are held back by the bullshit prejudice of others.
No, money isn’t guaranteed to buy happiness - but it fucking buys SECURITY, and the difference having that makes on health and happiness is immeasurable.
Yes, you can make money doing anything - but it’s not about making money, it’s about making ENOUGH money. There’s a wide gap between making money doing something you enjoy, and being able to live off something you enjoy.
