If you’re in Tokyo this hanami season and you had your heart set on going to the Kanamara Matsuri, aka the “Festival of the Steel Phallus, you’re out of luck since they are cancelling it this year out of respect to the victims of the March 11 earthquake. Fortunately for you, I went a couple years ago and am here to share my phallus-festival-photos. So, yeah, if you’re at work or around small children, should probably come back to this post later.

“That’s one of the major bummers of being unemployed. You feel like you’re not entitled to happiness. It’s the opposite of “funemployment.” Any fun activities are soured by the fact that you should be working, you should have a job. Until you do, you are only allowed to suffer and feel badly about yourself. Those are the implicit rules.”—Thought Catalog
