im sorry but you sometimes eat really unhealthily.. cheeseburger? not the best option im guessing. its okay to indulge sometimes but restrict yourself :) x
it isn’t even a real cheeseburger… it was skim american cheese on a vegan boca burger on cinnamon raisin ezekeil bread.
but thanks for helping me feel worse about myself =D
EDIT: dear anon, fuck you haha. don’t you dare tell me to “restrict” myself. go crawl back into whatever sad pathetic hole you live in. even if i ate five chocolate cakes or a bigmac from mcdonalds, it would still be OK
hey, i read your tags on that post about hermione and what do you mean by she was also terrible sometimes? ah, i'm not being mean or anything, i was just never much of a "potterhead" and didn't pay very close attention and now i don't even remember most things. i'm sorry if this is a bother. take care!
well she permanently scarred a teenaged girl because the girl was simply being loyal to her mother and the people who employed her (marietta edgecombe in ootp), she sent umbridge off to be beaten and possibly sexually assaulted by the herd of centaurs (also ootp), and she imprisoned a woman in a glass jar for an entire year (rita skeeter in gof)
don’t get me wrong i love hermione!!! she’s my fave but i hate when people sanitize her because one of the best parts of her character, for me, is how she kind of teeters on the verge of falling into complete sadism sometimes lmao
Robespierre never seemed happy in his life.
Thanks for the downer, citizen. D:
But I disagree! For one, we need to understand what made Robespierre happy. No, he didn’t roll in the hay with legions of women like a Danton or Mirabeau. He didn’t line his nest with gold like a Barras or Cambon. He didn’t race alongside the army like Saint Just.
But, well, I don’t think he wanted to. So while he didn’t do things that we find conventionally “fun,” it’s not as though there is a gold-standard of happiness that Robespierre didn’t meet. What made Robespierre happy and what might make you or I happy are different things. We shouldn’t judge Robespierre by our arbitrary measurements of happiness.
No, he seemed to just enjoy different things. Like writing - which he did. A lot. Either essays for contests or speeches for the Convention, Robespierre put pen to paper all the time. Why would he be doing it unless he liked it? I don’t think his parchments are stained with his tears.
What else made Robespierre happy? Well, he seemed to desire a comfortable home life. Charlotte reported that all he really wanted was someone to take care of him, and even implied that the Incorruptible could perhaps be corrupted by a few caresses. Hyperbole aside, I think it is safe to say that Robespierre desired a family atmosphere.
Did he get one?
Well what we need to remember that Robespierre spent his recreational hours - that is, the hours when he was at his leisure and was probably at his happiest - with people whose recollections have been lost to use due to their premature death or neglect to record their memories. We don’t have too many contemporary accounts of a “relaxed, contented” Robespierre because of this fact. But a lack of record in regards to a contented life doesn’t mean that it wasn’t contented. It just means that it was private.
After all, we know of Le Bas’ adulation for his wife because he was writing her letters from the front. Not to take anything away from Le Bas, but if Robespierre wanted to show affection to his loved ones he could walk over and tell them. His feelings aren’t recorded because he had no need to record them.
But the record that we do have shows that Robespierre, if nothing else, found contentment in his intimate circle. Elisabeth Le Bas wrote in her memoirs of the fond evenings she spent with the Incorruptible, whom she said she loved like a brother and whom her parents loved as a son. Apparently Robespierre, alongside this family circle and a few intimates, would listen to music, go to the theater, go for walks in the park, read plays —- these are things that you do with your loved ones.
Now, spending time with your loved ones isn’t necessarily tantamount to being happy for everyone. But for Robespierre, who seemed to be a very sentimental individual, was probably at his happiest with the Duplay family.
Robespierre was never happy with the political situation in his country, true. But his personal life was usually populated with loved ones and if he did not find happiness there then I don’t know where he could have found happiness given his preferences.
pretty little liars, feminist?

Petite bourgeoise, va !
Hahaha, alors ça c’est la meilleure ! H&M c’est une des marques les plus connues pour ne pas être excessivement chère et jme fait traiter de bourgeoise ?
Ça fait des mois que je me suis pas acheté de bouquin ou de DVD; les seules fringues que j’achète viennent de H&M ou Etam (=ça fait parti des marques les moins chères, si t’avais pas compris); pendant 1 mois, j’ai bouffé que de la merde au micro onde parce que j’avais pas de fric pour me racheter une plaque électrique ET ENCORE, une copine m’en a prêté une qu’elle n’utilise plus tellement elle avait pitié de moi.
C’est pas parce que je vis à Annecy entourées de meufs pétées de fric que je suis pareille, donc ferme ta grande gueule.
(Oh et t’aurai pas dû te mettre en anonyme, parce que là ça me dégoûte de me dire que je suis peut être abonnée au tumblr d’une meuf aussi conne.)
