50 things about me

 so some fun facts about working in carpentry (from someone in the field) that probably no one wants but could be fun for writing about julia and mags with:

  • it is so so important to maintain a positive relationship with your clients and that’s probably why mags is so proud of his rustic hospitality and wants to use it at every corner because your relationships and reputation is half the job
  • for one you get returning clients and tends to be the best and most reliable source of income and you also usually will end up getting gifts from them too which is, sweet
  • if they’re doing pretty well off during a year i’m almost certain that they offer discounts for their services for the poorer members of raven’s roost, mangus in particular has a “doggy discount” that if they own a dog and they let it work with him they get a good discount
  • both of them (+plus stephen) are probably ambidextrous to a degree as when working on repeat projects, you tend to get really tired and sore and continue working until that arm gives out and then switch to the other to be able to continue working
  • going with that, you get paid by commission or project usually and so hypothetically you could pick up as many as possible (or as many as the union will allow) and probably will do that a couple times and you could literally blow out your entire body but be set for the year in a couple weeks
  • going with the stress on the body, the physical labor definitely means that they have bad knees and probably a bad arm as well not to mention if there is a lot of heavy lifting you can get multiple hairpin fractures along your spine and legs causing intense pain that cannot be treated 
  • also if they’re working with saws (which i’m pretty sure trav did say were in the pocket workshop) then i have no idea why mags reacted so badly to losing a finger because everyone i have ever worked with has or has almost cut off their finger once a week
  • also you get a very high tolerance for pain (which probably helps mags as being a sword for hirer)  like i have literally sliced my entire forearm open and just wrapped it up and continued working
  • since raven’s roost has a carpentry district, that most likely means that they have a lumber sister town that provides all of the resources
  • and again, going with the importance of rustic hospitality, if you’re friends with the lumber providers then you will get first pick on the quality wood and quality literally will save you days of work
  • if there’s a bad harvest one year then it will fucking suck because people don’t stop needing furniture or buildings and you as the carpenter have to pick up the slack for the shitty warped wood and most projects will take about double the time
  • woodworking is a skill trade and has to be learned over years so most likely by the time mags came along julia was already extremely skilled and is able to do commissions and bids on her own and has her own reputation in ravens roost (which…tbh mags could have very well apprenticed under her) 
  • it is extremely hard to go from apprenticing one carpenter to another because even the basics get muddled with your own style to the point where most people measure in different ways and cutting something wrong (especially cutting it short) will waste so much material thus mags being brand new to apprenticing under stephen probably takes years while jules just laughs each time he fucks up a leg of a chair

poetry book recs, kind sir?

ooooooh YES!! 

ok so I’m going to leave out stuff that’s Too Obvious, which means a lot of this is niche (to me) or contemporary, and… I recently had a canary on twitter about how much ~*~modern~*~ poetry GETS MY GOAT. I’m reading a lot of New poets/collections this year purely because I… didn’t really read that much contemporary stuff before, and I thought I should branch out. (so far I’m dubious.) so, yes – obviously Plath, Blake, Hughes, Sappho, Eliot, Keats, Shelley, etc. etc. ad nauseum, The Greats, yadda yadda, here’s some others.

so far this year I’ve read (and ENJOYED - I’m not reccing the ones I wasn’t into/thought were pants, soz): 

  • Letters From Medea by Salma Deera
  • Grief Is the Thing with Feathers by Max Porter
  • Hold Your Own by Kate Tempest (I actually LOVED this) 
  • Mouthful of Forevers by Clementine von Radics
  • War of the Foxes by Richard Siken (of YOU’RE SITTING IN A CAR WITH A BEAUTIFUL BOY, AND HE WON’T TELL YOU THAT HE LOVES YOU, BUT HE LOVES YOU fame) 

I’ve also read and loved:

  • Teaching My Mother How to Give Birth by Warsan Shire
  • The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy by Tim Burton
  • The Curse of the Vampire’s Socks and Other Doggerel by Terry Jones
  • Love Poems by Carol Ann Duffy
  • Let Us Compare Mythologies by Leonard Cohen

my personal 10/10 all-time go-tos are:

  • Crush by Richard Siken (despite appearing on every single tumblr graphic between 2011 and 2013, it still gets me in the heart guts)
  • The World’s Wife by Carol Ann Duffy (which I have loved wholeheartedly since I was 17 years old)
  • pretty much any collection of Great War poetry: Up the Line to Death, Men Who March Away, Lads: Love Poetry of the Trenches (the Great War poets are my favourite. like, of all poetry, ever)

my favourite individual poems, as we’re on the subj, are: 

finally, a heads up: youtube literally anything by Brave New Voices, sit back, prepare to be Shook. ‘Transcript of Civil Rights’ by Shanita Jackson and Dakota Oder still DESTROYS ME five years later.

THERE YA GO. not much, but not nothing! enjoy!! maybe?!?

I really like your personality swap au, and I was thinking about if their personalities were swapped, but they retained their core values. Like if Chiaki still firmly believes in the idea of creating your own future, but has Nagito's enthusiasm, causing her to hold her classmates to so high of an expectation that she hates the idea of inadequacy and imperfection. I just thought that would be interesting.

I wouldn’t mind making more of this version of the personality swap it’s actually very interesting to me :0

Watch on libfas.tumblr.com

I made a video about one of the networks behind Antifa

Youtube deleted my channel without notice

So several weeks ago I started a YT channel that blew up pretty quick.

First thing that happened: Youtube demonitized me. I got about 50 cents on 100k views. There was no explanation.

Today I tried to log on and Youtube straight up deleted my account and everything on it, with no way for an appeal, and no explanation. There was nothing that should be against the guidelines, but the new ‘policy’ is just that vague that anything inconvenient can be deemed ‘hateful’.

Since Youtube clearly doesn’t want people to see this, I might as well post it here so more people do.

After the vid was posted, more people started talking about Felarca, BAMN, the RWL and other people I mentioned in the video, it was posted on various forums, reddit, chans and other places. So in case you’ve heard of this stuff or seen it, spread it for awareness anyway.

Going to Bed

I have a really hard time going to bed. There are a lot of barriers in the way of sleep, and of course they all compound into a massive mess. I’m fairly confident in saying that my circadian rhythm operates on a non-24 hour cycle, so of course that’s a hard position to start with for this. I also suspect that adhd plays a big role. 

If I’m understimulated, then I’m probably already an arms length from painfully aimless boredom. So asking me to give up the handful of things I’m doing or videos I’m watching, and just do nothing until I hopefully fall asleep, that’s a lot.

If I’m hyperfocused on a task, then I definitely know that the focus I have for that task isn’t going to be guaranteed to come back anytime soon. Trying to stop myself then is even harder because I know I have to ride a productive task as long as I can, else deal with yet another unfinished project on the pile. 

If I’m exhausted, I often find that I’m too tired and not well enough collected mentally to formulate the semblance of executive functioning needed to initiate the task of going to bed. Not sure if anyone else’s executive dysfunction can be so bad as to make you too tired to be able to get into bed, but mine sure is. 

If I’m not tired at all, which is usually the case when I logically know i should go to bed, then good luck falling asleep even if I do get in bed. I’ll lay in bed a while without a hint of sleep, before giving up and just being awake too long instead. Much better than a couple years ago when an unfortunate association with sleep and needles made my brain make being in bed physically painful in a very specific and awful way for me and my reaction to the idea needles. At least now I’ve gotten better enough that I actually can lay in bed even if I’m not literally falling asleep within a minute or two.

If I’m in a conversation with someone, or one just ended but it’s ambiguous to me if it’s really over or not, then I can’t go to bed because I have a task uncompleted. Social interaction also is something that helps deal with the painfully bored-ness of how things are when nothing seems good to do. Talking to someone in a meaningful way is a fairly reliable way to have something to put my attention on and have it feel fulfilled. Not something conducive to sleeping, if I can’t converse and sleep at the same time. The closest I got was during a stretch of time when a friend and I would fall asleep together. The socialness of that without need for being awake for that, made it a really good way to fall asleep by something other than the whims of my brain alone. I miss being able to sleep like that for more reasons too, but I also miss being able to go to sleep more reliably. 

I also assume that I don’t “feel” tiredness as clearly or as directly as most people? I mostly only notice it indirectly, and infrequently even when clearly tired. Hyposensitive? Not sure how most people feel it. 

I just want to be able to go to bed and fall asleep in predictable ways that are convenient to adult life.

How many times have I listened to War of Hearts and over analyzed everything about Malec and the potential (screams) plot line that is probably gonna happen in Season 3

so many times

me: i’ve got so many things to do im so stressed and anxious and aaahhhh

me: but what if i drew every clara outfit ever

the thing that really fucks me up about people defending 50 shades is that even after you shoot down all their arguments of it being a non-abusive relationship, their last argument is that the third book explains why Christian Grey is like that. Like their argument is literally that his backstory excuses his abusive behavior. The fact that people think this is a good argument is fucked up. Fuck this book and fuck this movie.
