I always try to keep giving Ben the benefit of the doubt since it really appears all the guys genuinely like him but he consistently acts like a manipulative asshole towards fans. Time and time again. This was a totally uncalled for, totally unneeded manipulation of fans. They would have voted for the video without his release the hug bs but no he had to jump in there and promise something that doesn't exist and now is "oh lol why did you take me seriously." Asshole behavior 101.

The only useful thing I’ve seen Ben Winston do in my five years of being a fan is fight with Dan Wootton on Twitter. That’s literally it. The boys may be friends with him for god only knows what reason, but he has done nothing to endear himself to fans because he’s so consistently annoying, manipulative, and nasty.

Hello I see that you have been doing job interviews.... would you be willing to give some interview advice?

INDEED! Ask away, please!

Topics that I’d be happy to expound upon - feel free to ask other stuff too! This is just what I thought about initially.

Interview 101: what I’m used to seeing.

I’M SO BAD AT INTERVIEWS WHAT ARE YOU BAD AT AND HOW DO YOU DEAL?

Interviews with presentation elements

Phone/Skype interview tips.

Comportment in general (clothes and stuff)

How to answer some of those really common but annoying questions, or even what they are in general

I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT I SHOULD DO WITH MY LIFE MAKE ME FEEL BETTER 

Science interviews: when they quiz you and you’re not sure what the answer is.

Logistics: traveling is hard.

(as you may have gathered I’ve had a drink, because I just got back from a zillion interviews last night. I’ve spent all day basically just watching Amazon Prime shows and eating tacos. This will not impact my ability to give advice but may make my language more profane or heavy on the caps lock and the dad jokes)

useful study tip! 

if you have a question/ if you’re confused about something while studying, write it down on a sticky note and put it next to your notes. That way you’ll remember to research it further or ask your teacher, instead of just letting the confusion continue.

Rebecca Bunch vs. Internalized Misogyny, Heteronormativity, and Fear of Rejection: An Essay by Someone in Way Too Deep

“I can’t find anybody to love me. Like, real love. Like, boy-girl love. I mean, that’s okay, that’s gender-normative. But you get what I’m saying, right?” Rebecca laments to her dream-ghost in “Josh has No Idea Where I Am!”. Rebecca understands heteronormativity in theory but she can’t apply it to her own life. She views “boy-girl love” and romantic love as one-in-the-same because she’s been taught that heterosexual love is the holy grail of fulfillment. Pre-series her relationships with women were always defined by competition and anxiety and so, Rebecca sticks to the heterosexual mold, unable to understand her latent attraction to women.

Kurt Vonnegut’s Creative Writing 101

1. Use the time of a total stranger in such a way that he or she will not feel the time was wasted.
2. Give the reader at least one character he or she can root for.
3. Every character should want something, even if it is only a glass of water.
4. Every sentence must do one of two things—reveal character or advance the action.
5. Start as close to the end as possible.
6. Be a sadist. No matter how sweet and innocent your leading characters, make awful things happen to them—in order that the reader may see what they are made of.
7. Write to please just one person. If you open a window and make love to the world, so to speak, your story will get pneumonia.
8. Give your readers as much information as possible as soon as possible. To heck with suspense. Readers should have such complete understanding of what is going on, where and why, that they could finish the story themselves, should cockroaches eat the last few pages.

I am not a Disney princess.  I’m Roger from 101 Dalmatians.  I’m hesitant to bond with new people, but once we’re in love I will lurk upstairs improvising mocking songs about your college friends with questionable morals.  And if 84 extra human children mysteriously showed up at my house I would just buy a house in the country and keep them all. 

To all autism parents, caregivers, loved ones, friends, etc.. Repeat after me:

A meltdown is not attention-seeking behavior.

A meltdown is not attention-seeking behavior.

A meltdown is not attention-seeking behavior.

A meltdown is NOT attention-seeking behavior.

A MELTDOWN IS NOT ATTENTION-SEEKING BEHAVIOR!!!!!

Do we understand each other now?
