You know for a while I was pretty skeptical of the whole, HS isn’t going to end on 4/13, thing. But honestly, I can see it not happening. There is still SO MUCH that has to happen, that just straight up isn’t before the last two pages that contain act 7 come out. 

So either the last two “pages” are gonna be fucking huge, or it’s just not gonna be over. 

Personally I think it is gonna end, but I’m keeping my expectations fairly open. Huss hasn’t actually explicitly stated that it’s ending on 4/13. It was implied, but you can’t really trust that unquestioned.

The Tumblr Dictionary of Common Usage

This is a project I’ve had in my mind for a little. 

My goal with it is to compile the definitions of words, as the people of tumblr use them, in the context of the social media platform. 

I would gather data on words using a google form. You submit to me a word you want to see defined. 

I make a survey asking for definitions, you reblog the survey and take it, filling out the definition of the word, and I compile the most common definitions, and post the results.

Obviously it’ll be cleaned up and interpreted for readability, and some responses may be similar, and so I’ll merge them into one category, one simple definition.

Some of my biases could come into play in these situations, and so I would need a mod or two to make things happen a little more smoothly, and hopefully with a little less bias.

Here’s a survey I threw together real quick on google docks, kinda what I see as the general layout of the final product, with placeholders, of course.

If you want to help me make this happen, or maybe want to advise me that my survey writing could use work, my ask box is open. 

Reblog to spread the word, and likes are always appreciated.

6 facts about yourself.

I was tagged by @garbagehime! Like three days ago. Sorry I didn’t notice sooner!

Well, 1: I pretty much always have a knife on my person. Everywhere I go, save the usual places where it’s prohibited, like schools and airports ect.

On that note, I also 2: Wear my backpack everywhere too. Mostly I use it for carrying groceries home from the store/foodbank, but I’ve used it for a few other things, namely holding hats/clothes that I didn’t need anymore because of going inside, or just because I over dressed for the weather.

3: I have 3 pieces of clothing that I’ve just scavenged from random places. One pair of fairly worn shoes that I found in a target shoebox, a Hurley t-shirt I found on the ground on the path I take to the CVS, and a pair of fingerless gloves very near the place I found the shirt, but in the middle of the road. If I find a pair of pants that fit me, I plan to wear them all together from time to time, and call it “the scrounger’s outfit” 

4: I took stock of all the live ammo we have in the house. We have 43 shotgun shells and 58 .22 LR rimfire carts. Though that is split between subsonic and supersonic ammo.

5: I make tea in a way that would probably offend most people who drink it. I microwave the water in the mug for one minute and then let the tea steep for five. I don’t know if actually boiling works better, but this method works well enough for me, and I don’t have to sit around for 20 minuets so that the tea doesn’t burn my tastebuds clean off. 

And finally; 6: I use (and have used for many years) a mug that says “aged to perfection” on it ironically, and I intend to continue to do so into the future.

I’m gonna tag a few people here, namely @badpearl, @q00dra, @kiwi-pies, @sidneyia, and @super-cheese-tastic


Also shoutouts to the innumerable spam blogs and the handful of real blogs that have propelled me to 399 followers! Hopefully a real blog will be the one to roll the counter over.

You know I can only run on the idea that you’re just socially awkward and hesitant to start conversations for so long. 

I’m just going to start assuming you don’t like me.  

And further more, you aren’t super awkward when we do talk, and you seem more than comfortable around your friend group. 

So I am led to believe that you are just putting up with me. 

It is at this point that I would like to remind you that you should just tell me if you don’t actually like me. Just tell me. So that we don’t waste each other’s time.

Despite this, you continue to be dishonest. It is at this point that I think I become reasonably frustrated. 

This is a two way street. Act like it, or get off the road.
