THEY RESCUED THE KITTY AND HUGGED IT OH GOD

Welp. it’s only 11:30 and I’m emotionally compromised for the rest of the day. 

Oh God, he put the kitten on his glove!

I swear to god I tear up every time this crosses my dash.

Reblog the hell out of this everyone.

It’s like you guys want to be outraged and offended.

thebooker:

As promised, here is my feels-themed giveaway! The books/series above all have one thing in common - they made me feel something. That doesn’t necessarily mean I cried but they definitely inspired some kind of emotional response in my robot-like self. They’re also some of my favourite books. Hopefully there’s a decent enough selection for you to choose from.

5 people will be sent a book of their choice from the selection above if they’re randomly selected as winners.

Please read the following:

  • To enter, like and/or reblog this post
  • You may reblog the post as many times as you like but don’t annoy your followers too much with it
  • I would prefer if you were following me, since this giveaway is a ‘thank you’ to my followers
  • This giveaway is international, as I am purchasing books via Book Depository and they have free delivery for the majority of the world. Double check that your country is included here
  • Your inbox MUST be open. I won’t be contacting anyone via fan mail
  • Winners may also choose a sequel to the books pictured above if it’s part of a series
  • Winners may choose which edition of the book they want, so long as it is paperback and under $15 (AU). The only exception is The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry, which is over $20 and hardback. I’ll only be buying this for one person (if they want it) so I have enough for the other books, sorry! I just love it so much and want to be able to share it with at least one person, even if it’s expensive
  • One of the books, Alexander Altmann A01567 is only available as a prize for Australians, as it is unavailable on Book Depository. If Aussies would like this book, I will order it for you from Bookworld
  • If you’re not sure which book you’d like, I’d be happy to tell you more about them and help you pick one that suits your tastes
  • No giveaway blogs
  • If you’re uncomfortable giving me your address, don’t be. I won’t be saving it or giving it out elsewhere or anything
  • The giveaway ends August 1st 12PM AEST
  • Winners will be selected using a random number generator and have 48 hours to get back to me. I’m quite lenient on that but I would prefer if people replied ASAP so I can be organised
  • If you have any other questions, feel free to ask me

Good luck and happy reading, word shakers!

Haruki Murakami novels are like 20% (or more) cats, and I find a strange sense of comfort in that.

I have no financial aid tips myself but I've heard so many great things about UVA i had no idea you were going!! I really really really hope that things work out and you can attend college!

That’s why I hope I can go/ Even though It wasn’t my first choice  I’ve really fallen in love with the school after I went to orientation last week

Also, I know my school offers a monthly payment plan that doesn't require loans. Maybe you could work something out with them? I would contact their Financial Aid office. Last year my friend wrote her potential college and frankly said she wouldn't be able to attend unless she received more aid. They increased her scholarship by $8000. I would give everything a shot! I wish you luck. And sorry for sending two messages, but I just know how this situation feels.

A girl from my school didn’t get any financial aid until she contacted the school too. I will have to see how it goes tomorrow because my aunt might be able to cosign
