Nostalgia - it’s delicate, but potent. Teddy told me that in Greek, “nostalgia” literally means “the pain from an old wound.” It’s a twinge in your heart far more powerful than memory alone. It takes us to a place where we ache to go again. It let’s us travel the way a child travels - around and around, and back home again, to a place where we know are loved.

I just got out of a really disastrous relationship and obviously that's a good thing but I still feel so sad and empty inside. I know you don't know me or anything but you seem like such a positive person and I felt like you'd have good break up advice haha

You’ll feel that way for awhile and your feelings are completely valid. You can’t help who you love and when you’ve spent a significant amount of time with someone you’ll feel like something is missing. That’s why it’s important to have a strong support group that keeps you occupied, gets you out of the house to do fun things, helps you meet new people, and reminds you not to look back. Time eventually heals wounds from old loves and soon enough you’ll look back and be like what the fuck was I thinking? It took me awhile to realize that I wasn’t being respected because I didn’t respect myself enough to leave. That’s what I look back and think now anyways. Don’t give up hope of getting over someone because it gets worse before it gets MUCH, MUCH better.

I keep surprising myself :)

I’ve had two weeks off from work and even though it wasn’t what I expected, I didn’t gain weight and even managed to lose 1.7 kg! I really miss the structure/ distraction that work gives me and now I just have too much time to think. Therapy opened some old wounds and I still need to learn how to deal with that.

Buuuuutttt I haven’t binged in 24 days! 


I felt a little down about my weigh in results and was totally planning on buying lots of junk food. But while I was in the store I realized that that wouldn’t get me anywhere so I bought healthy things instead. This weigh in might be disappointing but I’m sure I’ll have better results next week :)

Oh and guess what I bought instead of junk food?

 Nerd Alert!


Yup! I bought a giant puzzle haha :D

There’s an Indiegogo out there trying to get money to make a film about the sinking of the Bounty replica. It’s called ‘The Rescue of the Bounty’.

Don’t support it.

The survivors that I know personally are not happy about it. 

Not a single sailor out of all the Bounties I know trusts this project.

Or the book the film is supposed to be based on, which is full of errors, omissions, and was written in a rush to publish.

Not a single person actually involved with the Bounty is involved with the project, last I checked.

The authors of the fundraiser have misspelled the name and surname of one of the victims, which is reason enough to side-eye them.

The author of the book has been quite insensitive in replying to concerned crewmembers, and does not seem to even acknowledge that his approach could be inappropriate, or that it will open up old wounds. He’s basically shrugging and saying ‘well people make movies about tragedies all the time.’

That’s true. But if that’s your explanation of why you’re doing it when a crewmember challenges you, then you’ve got no business doing it at all.

This has all the red flags of an exploitative, quick cash bandwagon driven by people who exhibit none of the tact and cautiousness necessary to approach a tragedy so fresh.

The description is littered with dramatic catchphrases that make me feel sick to my stomach, because they’re all empty. There’s no heart in this, no soul behind this project.

Please, don’t support it.

"Look who has come crawling for help..." D'Artagnan mocked as he knelt down to look The Spider Queen in the eyes. he put a forehead on her forehead and brought the woman new life, old wounds now opening under his clothing. "Mortal life is short, enjoy it." he stated simply before offering her a hand up.

Elise glared at him and smacked his hand roughly, “I… Don’t need your help child..!” She growled, forcing herself to get up. She grit her teeth and clamped her hand on her shoulder. “D-Damn it all…” Elise grunted, turning her back on D’Artagnan with her spider appendages missing and walked away from him.

"How'd you get this?" //Twila would be probably be awkward touching Algrim ;w;

Algrim looked where she had touched, a pinkish welt that had long scarred over and healed to a mess of nerveless tissue.

"This? An old.. wound I sustained in battle long ago."

A wound, he told her. But it was so much more than that.. this ‘old wound’ held deep meaning to the Svartalfar, meaning which he had tried to bury beneath study and work.


weekly reminder that marco was probably the most important person in jeans life- a person who encouraged and believed in him- and he is dead.
sometimes I wonder how often jean thinks about marco, and then it occurred to me
it’s been like 11 episodes since Marcos death, and he is still jean’s sole motivation for moving forward.
jean frequently questions his own abilities, to the point where it’s obvious that he does have a severe lack of self esteem and purpose.
but marco answered jean’s questions as they came, reassuring him - “you gave the right orders. That’s why I could jump, and it’s why I’m alive.” honestly, there’s no greater solace than what marco gave jean.
and now, even after death, marco is still answering jean’s questions.
Or rather, he is the answer.
