I’m twenty two and going out to party still scares the shit outta me. I went to town with the intention of buying a party dress, but I ended up buying instead a cute day time dress, another pair of converse and a few jumpers so I can just curl up in the cold and wonder why I can’t socialise properly …
As much as someone can tell you things, you have to go out there and make your own mistakes in order to learn.

Young British Muslims tell the Islamic State: #NotInMyName
There’s a new trend taking over the social media pages of young British Muslims, and it’s targeted right at the Islamic State.
As Mic has previously reported, there’s something troubling about calling this terrorist group the “Islamic State,” since they do not accurately represent Islam or Islamic beliefs, but a twisted and perverted interpretation of the global religion.
So to combat this, young activists, led by Britain’s Active Change charity, are telling the terrorists to stop acting under the banner of Islam by circulating the hashtag #NotInMyName and calling out the group for “hiding behind a false Islam.”
