I know what you’re thinking, I know what you’re thinking. If you saw me on the streets, you’d probably think something like this: "Man, that kid’s got some funky hair. I mean, really, look at the guy! What color even is that supposed to be? Red? Orange? Where were that guy’s parents when he decided to mess up his hair like that?" To which I would reply with: "Why is that person staring at me?" 
My name is Daniel Kimble and I’m a transgender fourteen-years-old boy from Baton Rouge, Louisiana. [I’ll be fifteen on July twenty-sixth, and I expect birthday wishes from all of you.] I currently live in Denham Springs, Louisiana with my parents, my brothers Jordan and Joss, my Aunt Kristie and my cousins Chandler and Taylor. I love writing, drawing, and speaking, especially on topics I’m passionate about.
Which brings me to my point: I’ve been in a relationship with this girl I’ve known for four years now. Her name is Sophie O’grady, and we’ve currently been dating for, what? Nine? Almost ten months now? Which seems like an insignificant number in the grand scheme of things, but in those short months I’ve fallen absolutely in love with this girl. I don’t have a doubt in my mind that it’s love - never have, never will. 
My only problem with our relationship is that we live 4,000+ miles away from each other. Sophie was born and raised in Galway, Ireland, where she currently lives with her parents, grandparents and siblings. Because of our distance, Sophie’s time zone is drastically different from mine - when I come home from school at 3:00 PM, she’s fast asleep in her bed at 11:00 PM. There are other obvious difficulties in being in a long distance relationship, that I’m sure you’re aware of. One of our biggest hardships come from her scoliosis.
Sophie was diagnosed with scoliosis in February. Currently her spine is bent at an eighty-one degree angle, which is called a right thoracic curve. The intense curve in her spine is causing her ribs to crush her lungs and her heart. Due to the severity of her scoliosis, she was scheduled to have her surgery in May. However because her ribs and lungs are being crushed, she has to undergo more tests to make sure she’s strong enough for the spinal surgery. 
Sophie and I planned for her to fly down to Louisiana in late June, but because of the uncertainty of the dates of her surgery, our trip was cancelled. We’re now certain of the dates - and her surgery will not be preformed this year. However, this leaves us with one last obstacle; neither of us have the money to fund this trip, which is about 1,600+ euro for her and her mother. Which is where we come in, asking you, the Tumblr community for help:
It would mean the absolute world to me if I were able to meet this beautiful girl in person. In the short time that we’ve  been together, I’ve felt the love of a partner that I cannot begin to put into words. I cannot fathom the strong, warm feeling I get from seeing her face, especially when she smiles, because she has an amazing smile. Donating even just a small amount would mean a lot to both myself and to Sophie.
Please click here to donate to the cause. Every penny counts!
I do hope with every ounce of my heart that one day, hugging this beautiful girl won’t just be a dream.

I don’t reblog tattoos very often, but this is some real shit.

one of the sickest tattoos I have ever seen.

WOW

This is one of the most beautiful, well-portrayed, and original tattoos I have ever seen. I would LOVE to know the artist of this. These tattoos usually freak me out because I don’t like the way it looks like their skin is peeling but this is seriously beautiful.

This is why I love tattoos!
