there is a huge difference between genuinely liking someone and liking the attention they give you and it took me a long ass time to realize that
More than just taking a long time, it’s taken a lot of hurt to realize this. :-/
you know those friends that you aren’t into romantically but you love them so much you would marry them anyway
THIS IS FOR MY BESTEST FRIEND, MICHELE!!! :D aka diamondmam.
You should follow her because SHE IS JUST AMAZING AND I LOVE HER AND I WOULD MARRY HER IF SHE DIDN’T ALREADY HAVE A HUSBAND.
And Elaira! If you like my blog, you’ll love hers! :D
When you collect data to prove what you’ve already decided you want to prove, that’s not science. That’s marketing.
There are no exceptions to this rule.
Ya know I’ve never thought of it like this. But this is so true.
I’ve been struggling with faith for a couple years now, and this casts further doubt.
Part of me is thankful for that.
Another part of me is pissed, because for every argumentative and/or persuasive paper I’ve ever written, we had to come up with our point - our thesis, our conclusion - and then find reliable (academic) sources to back it up. Which is just really, really discouraging.
DO YOU EVER JUST GET UNREASONABLY EMOTIONAL OVER LORD OF THE RINGS MUSIC
For the two months following the break up with my ex, I listened to almost nothing but the three LOTR soundtracks. It was my refuge and escape and comfort and how I got through the days. Escaping to Middle Earth on the wings of Howard Shore. <3
the abc’s of james mcavoy → QT (aka cutest bb in the history of ever)
I had a big crush on Shawn Hunter, from Boy Meets World, as well as Eric Matthews.
I also had a crush on Cory Matthews, but I’m focusing on the other two because of hair reasons. I loved their hair. The part down the middle with the gentle wave/sweep down the sides of the forehead, sometimes approaching covering the eyes. I loved it then, and I still love it. For whatever reason, it’s something that I find instantly attractive. I have no doubt that it’s part of my adoration for James McAvoy. :)
true blood + fairy sookie
Love it. Love everything about it.
It’s kinda funny. Just yesterday my good friend and I were talking about True Blood and she said that “They lost me at Fairies”.
I know that at first it’s pretty wtf, but if you stay with it, fairies are pretty badass. :)
sometimes you just need to lay on the floor
YES. Every time I go anywhere with a carpeted floor space large enough, I have a strong urge to lay down and sprawl out like I’m making carpet-angels. And I want to just roll around.
I think it comes from growing up in a house of hoarders (me included, to be honest). :P
This is ALEX, who goes by NOWHERE MAN on Facebook. He is THIRTY YEARS OLD and attends SCA events, attends anime conventions, and hangs out in the Delmar Loop. He is POTENTIALLY ARMED and owns an assortment of weapons including KNIVES, BOWS, SWORDS, DAGGERS, ETC. He is a GUN RIGHTS ACTIVIST and I have reason to believe he OWNS SEVERAL FIREARMS. He drives a CAR and a MOTORCYCLE.
This past weekend at Anime St. Louis I made the mistake of letting this guy stay in a room I had available. During the convention he sexually harassed NO FEWER THAN THREE TEENAGERS. His targets seem to be 16-18 YEAR OLD CISGIRLS, TRANSGUYS, OR ANDROGYNOUS PEOPLE, particularly those who are THIN ENOUGH THAT HE COULD OVERPOWER THEM.
He has been STALKING one person since JANUARY, including sending them harassing messages, telling others that they are dating and referring to them as both his girlfriend and his “ex,” using emotional manipulation to convince them not to tell anyone, and then CLAIMING THAT THEIR FATHER THREATENED TO KILL HIM when all that was said was to basically stay the fuck away from his kid. He spent half the convention crying to us about how he is HEARTBROKEN that the teenager he’s stalking IS DATING SOMEONE ELSE.
He took TWO DIFFERENT GIRLS to his [my] hotel room, that he was SHARING WITH MY TWO COWORKERS, and fucked them both while my coworkers were at the con doing filming work — essentially ALLOWING TWO STRANGERS INTO A ROOM WITH OUR CAMERA EQUIPMENT.
He FELT UP A TEENAGER’S THIGH AND GRINDED UP AGAINST HER during the Saturday night rave/dance and WOULD NOT STOP WHEN SHE SAID SHE WAS UNCOMFORTABLE.
He REFUSED TO STOP TOUCHING/POKING/HUGGING my 17 year old friend and got REALLY WHINY when we told him to FUCKING STOP IT.
Please stay the fuck away from him. If he so much as sets foot ANYWHERE the fuck near Promstuck I will CALL THE GODDAMN COPS.
EDITED because tumblr did not save my captions, the last four images are things HE POSTED TO HIS FACEBOOK ACCOUNT to give you an idea of his mental state/opinions on shit
Please, please, if your parents are willing to come help chaperone promstuck and be security, I need their help.
Can Town is a safe space. This is absolutely beyond unacceptable and he will not be allowed anywhere near our space.
This doesn’t have more notes…why?
historys-little-devil: Oh my god, I had a whole freaking conversation with this guy at Kawa Kon! He was way too close, even when I said I was happily taken, and DIDN’T back off until my Fritz came back with the large (obviously fake) pipe gun he built!
ALSO. To all the naysayers who say this shouldn’t be going around, this is the FAQ on the OP’s blog:
This is so disappointing. I LOVE Ren Faires, and I like to think of them as safe places with safe people. But this just goes to show that, like in any situation, even in good places there can be bad people. :(
Also, note that he got “whiny”. Not “aggressive” or “violent”. I’m glad that he didn’t get violent, but being whiny is definitely coercive as well. It’s emotional manipulation.
DO NOT put up with assholes who get whiny when you won’t let them grope and molest you. Just because he isn’t being aggressive does not mean that he’s safe. He’s not. He’s trying to coerce you, he does not respect you, he does not give a shit about you.
Oh my god, I DO THIS ALL THE TIME.
But it’s more than just that. I do it when I’m reading a book but also when watching tv or a movie. And if there’s a fight going on, I react to the punches and blows. I even do this when I’m out and about in public or people watching. I copy facial expressions, or try to imitate body movements or interesting sounds I hear. I do it automatically, without thinking about it. Thankfully it’s not constant, I don’t always do it. Except when I’m reading. When I’m reading, I pretty much always do it. XD
Those Aussie Things: Fairy Bread
I live in California, and my mom used to make this for me and my sisters all the time when we were kids. I asked my mom where she learned it, and my mom said she learned it from her mom, my grandma.
It’s easy and fast, and cheap. And yummy. :) And happy. ^_^
- more time, less things to do
- “if I could do all these things while my schedule was an orgy of work, I could do much more with more time”
- “if I could handle that much pressure and still be productive, I can be even more productive”
- “these things are easier to do than what I used to do so I don’t need to worry about them as much”
- “I can relax”
- “I don’t have to break a sweat”
YES. YES YES YES.
The more time I have to myself, the less I get done. I need to have structure, a regular schedule that fills up my time. Otherwise I’m playing Pokemon all frigging day long. And if I lived in a vacuum I’d be okay with that. But I don’t live in a vacuum and I have stuff that I should be doing and family members that get mad at me for not doing them.
really fucking sucks being that kid in class no one wants to work in pairs with and then you’re forced to just sit there alone acting like it doesn’t bother you at all
There are so many shitty feelings in the world. So many things that absolutely and utterly SUCK. And this is one of them. And it happens to so many, all over. I hate it… I hate that feeling. That feeling of being unwanted, unloved, alone. You feel disgusting, like people hate being near you, and that’s why no one wanted to be your partner.
I fucking hate that. If I ever become a teacher, I’ll pair/partner up the kids, even if it’s just by numbering them off. That way kids don’t get left out like I so often was.
