do you ever want to slap yourself in the face because you know you should be doing something productive but instead you choose to sit in front of a laptop for hours on end doing shit that has no beneficial impact on your life and this just happens day after day after day and still you refuse to accept the fact that you have a problem
ahahahaaa except the last part i have accepted that i accepted it a long time ago
I went from 126 followers to 130 and then back down to 127 and now up to 129 (hello zombiehistorian my newest follower! I’m an opinionated asshole sometimes~! And also I post a lot of dudes sucking cock :D) I wonder who left and why? hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm ok I stopped wondering ~
Now I am thinking about Adventure Time and craving an iced mocha …damn I really fucking want an iced mocha omg
I really like that in the show Monk, even when the characters close to him are frustrated with his compulsions they still respect him. Like the episode where he’s taking care of Stottlemeyer’s kids, I feel like most shows would just have the kids take advantage of his condition to run wild and act like brats, but instead they’re about as understanding as a five and thirteen year old can be. The younger kid calls him crazy or something for snatching away his colouring when he goes outside the lines and the older one scolds his brother for that and tells him that it’s rude and that “Mr. Monk is just troubled”.
I like that Stottlemeyer isn’t just the token frustrated police chief always getting in the hero’s way, he gives Monk the benefit of the doubt, sympathizes with him even when it’s difficult to do so, and obviously brings that attitude home considering his kids were on their best behaviour when he left Monk in charge.
I dunno, it’s the little things.
Man I miss this show I haven’t watched it in sooooooo long Tony Shalhoub is the best
I mean this, legit explain to me Why is it When a POC makes a post about white people and racism or white people and oppression or just white people in general
white people have to like INSTANTLY raise their hands and go ‘NUH UH NOT ME’ like fuckin instantly
why is that???? I am absolutely goddamn serious as a heart attack — I don’t understand !! I don’t understandthe need to automatically go ‘well I’m not like that’ as if it fucking has ANYTHING to do with the point the person is trying to make it’s like: okay??? good for you? do you want your special ‘not a racist!’ cookie or something? I don’t understand because I have never felt that need
Why are you so defensive??? HMMM? I side eye that I side eye that So Fucking Hard Don’t you know they’re not talking about you?
….unless they are??? and you feel like you have to defend yourself?
Also the people who legitimately believe racism will stop if we stop talking about it like PLEASE explain that one to me omg -please- I really want to know how that conclusion is reached use small words so I’ll understand
that’s like saying your cancer will stop if you just decide you don’t have it anymore just wake up one day going ‘nope! i sure don’t have cancer anymore!’ yeah that’ll work
This is not a post directed at any particular people within the trans* community/groups or any such thing. This is just my thoughts on an event I have seen take place on several occasions. Why do we as a community have a tendency to police a person’s transition? It’s as if we get into our heads that there are these very concrete steps that a person must start taking/plan in the immediate future to take for their transition or we start doubting that person’s trans* identity. If a person is not out at work or school, has not told their family or friends, has not set a date to begin taking hormones, made plans to begin saving for surgery, and what have you, and doesn’t plan to for some time, we doubt them. I’ve seen people ‘call out’ others on their sincerity, say they are taking up the trans* label to be cool/for attention. We throw that phrase around, that “You’re not actually trans*, you’re just jumping on the wagon andyou doing so makes it harder for us to be taken seriously/is making us look bad.”
That last part is, what I think, it all comes down too. If a person is non-binary, if a person goes about their transitional process in a way that is not straight forward, or anything really that doesn’t match up with our ideas on how this shit all works, we feel threatened. We feel threatened, and often times, we ‘attack’ the perceived threat to our security. It’s a common, human reaction. But where have we heard that before though? That bullshit line, “You are making us look bad” or “Your existance makes it harder for us to be taken seriously”? Some groups within the LGB communities in regards to the T is a relevant example.
Perhaps some people are “faking” their trans* status. My stance on it, is so what? It does not matter. Someone trying that label on or even blatantly lying does not mean that all of our identities are suddenly less valid because of it. Anyone who tries to use that as an excuse to dismiss your own identity is a fool and has poor logic. However, the potential existance of ‘liars/fakes/etc’ does not give us an excuse to run around declaring certain people insincere, because we have no real way of knowing. Witchhunts always end badly and don’t accomplish a thing. We have no way or right to judge whether or not a person is ‘legitimately’ trans*, because we all have different, personal takes on what being trans* is. Worst of all, what if we declare someone a ‘fake’ and we are wrong? That person could very likely be struggling with being trans*, cuz this shit ain’t a cake-walk, and some ‘defender of trans* honor!’ done goofed and called them a liar? Society in general already acuses us of being liars and fakes, and self doubt and insecurity due to that is a painful thing to deal with. We are the last people who should be throwing that horseshit around, especially since as a community we should be trying to support one another through all of this. Otherwise, it will take even longer for us to heal as a group and as individuals.
That is just my opinion on the matter. Sorry if it was rather rambly. lol.
And maybe instead of writing a tumblr post about it, I should take the time to be productive and clean my room a bit and get to work on some art. But putting the thoughts down might prove useful somehow.
oh thank you for taking my feelings and putting them into words i was having so much trouble doing that (that’s my way of saying omfg i understand right there with you duckie the bestest of luck to both of us to find those missing things)
Am I the only person who actually hates The Great Gatsby?
I keep getting side-eyed by people when I say that. XD
I should probably clarify that my relationship with the book is actually more of a love/hate thing. Like — to me the actual story is about nothing but a bunch of rich elite white people bitching about how hard it is to be a rich elite white person and how being rich elite and white and carefree in the JAZZ AGE is -gasp gasp gasp- A LIE A LIIIIIIIE yeah idgaf woop de doo Good for you poor little rich boy go choke on a tennis sweater
AND YET I liked the book! As in, I actually really enjoyed READING the book, it’s a fantastically-written novel and a very enjoyable read. I just loathed everything and everyone in it!
I don’t even pretend to know how that works lmao.
But I tend to be bored/annoyed/angered by movies and books about well-off white people discovering life is not what they pretend it to be. Because like ……….a duuuuh? Why is this presented as some grandiose revelation? Like OOOOH NOW THESE PEOPLE HAVE THE TRUTH AND IT IS CRUSHING THEIR SOUUUL I’m sure their big sacks of money will soothe their wounds darlin
Oh do not even get me started on American Beauty. What a loathesome piece of…
…anyway. I really want to see the movie but I think it might just either bore me or piss me off lol I guess we’ll see
in a mad flurry of closing tabs last night and throwing my laptop across the room (ok not really but want to) i accidentally unfollowed like five people omg tumblr why don’t you let me know when i click the wrong thing
i also closed a window of email i was writing to my ex that was like five paragraphs long and not saved fuck that and everything else too! woooo
i may be scarce in the next couple weeks i need a time out

Random fact about you: I broke my leg when I was 14 and walked on it for two weeks without realizing it was broken (just thought it was a bad sprain and didn’t want to bother my parents with it) - it had started growing back together in that time, but we didn’t have the money to rebreak and reset it so it was *exactly* proper, so my fibula has a kink in it and is actually offset enough that my left foot cannot rest flat on the floor when standing, I can’t stand on tiptoe on that leg, nor point my toe without starting an instant cramp, nor flex my foot very far to the left, and it hurts a whole lot if I’m on my feet all day. BEH. >T
Well, Missouri, actually. :p You put Illinois where like three states go. Did you forget Iowa too?
xDD Oh my god I’m sorry! Why did I think you told me Minnesota?? LMAO YES I forgot like … 5 or so states in what I *did* draw REM’S AMERICAN FLAG ONLY HAS 45 STARS OKAY We got way too many states anyway we don’t need ALL those states They should let me redraw the map, it’d be -way- easier to remember -3-
wow.. that's pretty bad.. but then I can't remember where half the states are either. especially the east coast ones. Also I'm really amused that you put los angeles and san diego up there when they are near the bottom and san fran is closer to the top.. also how did oregon lose its coast? You put it where utah goes. also you forgot idaho and the dakotas are in the place montana goes XD I'm amused at your horrible map.
OH MY GOD I FORGOT IDAHO AND UTAH ENTIRELY …xDD ok i did this really fast lmao ..but i legit forgot they existed too hahaha oh wow Oregon lost its coast because I didn’t know it had one |D It’s where I always thought it was — in fact I thought it had a corner touching Washington Like when I saw that map and saw Oregon was between Washington and California was was legitimately SURPRISED xD The same when I saw that all the cities I thought were at the top were way at the bottom of Cali. Like waaaay at the bottom.
I’m really starting to wonder if this is a condition or something
Also if you were talking to me on Skype I’m sorry I didn’t say anything before signing off, sometimes I just kind of want to…stop talking and go. I’m honestly an awful person that way, in that when I don’t feel like doing something anymore and do something else instead, I’ll just -stop doing it abruptly- and that includes conversations. I’ve practically hung up on people before, it’s really only because hanging up on someone mid-sentence is terribly rude that I actually don’t. I just want you guys to know that if we’re in the middle of a conversation and I suddenly go ‘oop gotta go’ or sometimes even if I just -leave-, it’s NOTHING PERSONAL at all, it’s just….the way I am. xD;;
HEY SEXY. WE GONNA HAVE OUR RP DAY? If not, it's cool. Enjoy your day off. :3
OH SNAP YES Yes just give me like half an hour to an hour and I will return I hope that’s not too late! I was having night terrors last night so I had to wait for the sun to rise to sleep, so I didn’t get to bed until about 6, 7am, and woke up at like nearly 4pm Which I am unpleased about =___=; but what can I do, time happened! I will be back soon I’ll probably get on Skype if you’re on there!
“But Sherlock Holmes never hates it when he’s right!”
Without a word Holmes hurried to a carriage, and during the long seven miles’ drive he never opened his mouth. Seldom have I seen him so utterly despondent. He had been uneasy during all our journey from town, and I had observed that he had turned over the morning papers with anxious attention, but now this sudden realization of his worst fears left him in a blank melancholy. He leaned back in his seat, lost in gloomy speculation.
— The Adventure of the Dancing Men, Holmes upon being proven right about the case by way of the death of his client.
“But Watson would never flinch at a grisly scene!”
“That’s better!” said he. “And now, Doctor, perhaps you would kindly attend to my thumb, or rather to the place where my thumb used to be.”
He unwound the handkerchief and held out his hand. It gave even my hardened nerves a shudder to look at it. There were four protruding fingers and a horrid red, spongy surface where the thumb should have been. It had been hacked or torn right out from the roots.
“Good heavens!” I cried, “this is a terrible injury. It must have bled considerably.”
— The Adventure of the Engineer’s Thumb
The key being turned, however, the hole was not entirely closed. Sherlock Holmes bent down to it and instantly rose again with a sharp intaking of the breath.
“There is something devilish in this, Watson,” said he, more moved than I had ever before seen him. “What do you make of it?”
I stooped to the hole and recoiled in horror. Moonlight was streaming into the room, and it was bright with a vague and shifty radiance. Looking straight at me and suspended, as it were, in the air, for all beneath was in shadow, there hung a face — the very face of our companion Thaddeus. There was the same high, shining head, the same circular bristle of red hair, the same bloodless countenance.
— The Sign of Four
