Totally-Normal

I feel like I am this weird combination this weekend of “I am Not Doing Well” and “But don’t freak out”. Because like…on the one hand I have had this headache for two days (thanks global warming, a high pressure system causing 70F temps in February is totally normal) and I’m tired and nothing looks like anything I want to eat. 

On the other hand I got a bunch of fanfic done (4 to go!) and I made cultured butter and I TRIED to make chevre (it did not chev) and I think I may have successfully invented ukulele tabs for The Star Spangled Man. Also I’m feeling pretty good because I tracked my purchases for this month to see why I never have any money and it turns out groceries, so at least I know I’m not poor because I’m blowing all my cash on fripperies that somehow disappear before I get home.  

Guys if you ever feel like you are simultaneously a mess and killing it, just know you are not alone.

what recording this taught me is that i desperately need to both clean my keyboard and also probably buy a new keyboard.

anyway this is a totally normal song i wrote about my totally normal reaction to hearing connie francis’ version of “oh my darling clementine” right before i went for a run.

2 days ago i started going again to the Gym After a long period and now i'm in so much pain. When you are sore, you should keep exercising or just wait for you to get completely healed? Ty so much i always follow you โค

When you’re not training regularly, DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness) will often occur. So if you can’t walk after leg day, it’s totally normal ;).

The optimal time for a muscle to fully recover is 48 hours. If you’re still sore, you can still workout, but you will have to spend more time warming up. If you spend 10-20 minutes warming up, it will increase the blood flow to your muscle and you shouldn’t feel pain anymore.

If you don’t feel comfortable training the same muscle group, simply train another body part.

Idk if this happens with anyone else but with my hyperfixations most of the time I'm like ๐Ÿ’˜๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’˜๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’˜๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’˜๐Ÿ’˜๐Ÿ’˜ but every once in awhile I'm like "oh I don't need that rn" bc I have zero motivation to actually invest time in it but then I go right back to ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’˜๐Ÿ’˜ ๐Ÿ’˜๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’• if that even makes any sense?? omf

That’s me right now with my biggest and longest lasting hyperfixation, I think it’s totally normal to feel like this sometimes! Any other input?

so the figure skating anime is coming but you know what else should totally be a thing? figure skater mikleo. like he specializes in water/ice and he’s slender and elegant and all. and sorey would be his biggest fan of course

Deaf Culture PSA

Today I was in Wal-Mart, doing my thing, buying groceries, the usual, when I bump into one of my friends from high school. We’re having a grand ol’ time catching up and whatnot when this lady by the dairy section (across from us) turns and just..stares.

Like, full on, “I’m at the zoo” stare. I catch her eye, smile, wave, whatever, thinking she would move along with her shopping, but it didn’t even faze the woman.

For those of you who don’t know me very well, I was born Deaf, and while I can read lips pretty well, I rely on sign language for most of my communication. My friend went to the same Deaf School as me, and also uses ASL- however, she has a cochlear, and can make out the jist of conversations.

For those of you who are interested in learning or are currently learning sign language, please come up and say hello! We totally understand if you’re a beginner, and would love to help further your skills. That being said, we aren’t a spectacle or a show. We’re normal people, like you, who just use a little different method to communicate. Please don’t stare at us like we’re this oddity, because quite frankly, we’re not.

There are a lot of people who get this, but it amazes me sometimes in this day and age that the Deaf community is treated this way by some. Take some time and study a little about Deaf culture, learn about my community, and remember that even if I can’t hear, I can still see you staring, and I can still feel like a second-class show.
