anonymous asked:

where is your name "stargirl" from?

ooo good question! So basically when i was like in the 4th grade i read this book called stargirl by jerry spinelli (its rlly good u should check it out). And when i was making an account for club penguin (rip) i couldn’t think of a username so my sister said i should do something i like and i picked that book and thus stargirl was born!!

somebody wanted me to name all the shows I watch so here they are. starred ones indicate stuff I actually post about semi-regularly:

-sherlock (well so much as anyone “watches” sherlock)*
-it’s always sunny*
-star trek tos*
-jeeves and wooster*
-a bit of fry and laurie*
-the l word (please don’t watch the l word)*
-mad men
-the fall
-bob’s burgers
-seinfeld (like, occasionally)
-the simpsons (also occasionally)
-futurama
-yuri on ice*
-jessica jones
-arrested development
-house of cards*
-mst3k
-king of the hill
-looking

I think that’s it? it’s all that springs to mind anyway. I also watch rachel maddow and other news when I can, but I don’t have an actual tv so mostly I consume older shows and things available on netflix. tbh if you’re asking this you’re probably wondering about being pope leonard, which is a fake show I helped make up, or house, which is an evil show I do not watch.

Chapter nicknamed

Ok, so, Yesterday I was at AC home because my mother forgot to left the keys. And while I slept she took my phone to read fanfiction, I thought she meant Ao3 or ff-net, but she actually went to my drive to read EA chapters that I was writing…

I just opened my drive and stood 10 minutes trying to find the chapter to find she renamed it and when I open I see this:

I am laughing so hard… I almost feel tempted to leave this title xD


Also in other news, EA will be one year old this Sunday! I will try to update by then, but I won’t make promises, HOWEVER, I’ll be taking questions and I’ll make a list of questions you guys might have or curiosities later on, ok? :)

I really need to talk to you, and if you just give me two minutes of your time I promise I’ll be out of your hair.

How Dan and Phil probably broke up #15
  • Dan: buffy sucks
Alya's Ladyblog reports on each hero
  • Ladybug: TOP PRIORITY, we must figure out who this goddess is! She's the best out there but there's also news on the other heroes here too if you really want it but why would you? Ladybug is the best!
  • Chat Noir: Who is this mysterious black clad cat who's pining over Ladybug and are they a couple?
  • Queen Bee: who could she bee? Who is this strange newcomer?
  • Volpina: probably not important, no questions please, we know nothing

Hey, I call everyone “my dudes” but you can bet that if someone asks me not to call them that, I’ll respect their wishes and switch to their preference.

Because if I didn’t, they would be completely justified in calling me an asshole and I wouldn’t have a leg to stand on if I asked them to stop.

So this is a somewhat serious topic (also TW for periods and stuff):

for the past year (as far as I can remember at least), I’ve been having excruciating abdominal pains during the night. There’s no schedule, no pattern, to tell me when the episodes hit. The pain is hard to describe, the best things I can compare it to, is a mixture of period cramps and constipation. It comes in waves and can keep me up for hours. I’ve found that taking 2 ibuprofen and a Gravol ward it off and let me pass out long enough to get some sleep, but obviously this shouldn’t be a long-term solution. I’m probably killing my liver with all these drugs lol.

I’ve seen a doctor, got my blood tested, got an ultrasound, and nothing shows any abnormal results. When I first started experiencing these pains, I remember looking it up to try and find answers. There seemed to be a number of other trans guys on testosterone who were experiencing the same pains, but no one had a definitive answer as to what caused them and how to fix them.

I’ve only recently discovered more conversation about these pains. I found an interesting article that stated it is recommended to get your uterus and such removed after several years on testosterone. This is the article if anyone’s interested in reading it.

While I’m happy that there is a potential solution, and I want these pains to stop, I really don’t want to go in for another surgery. I haven’t experiences any extreme dysphoria since getting top surgery. My reproductive organs haven’t really bothered me mentally, so it hasn’t been a pressing matter to get them removed. Sigh. I don’t know what to do.

1.12.16 // How is it possible that it is the first day of the last month of this year??! (That was a mouthful.) I can’t even begin to wrap my head around how it’s possible 335 days have passed. 😮 Now that I’ve finished the semester, things have settled down, but only by a bit. I received my assessment marks back and I’m very happy with my performance (I got HDs in 2 of my 3 courses!), but I’m nervously awaiting the release of Exam results which come out on the 15th. 😬

I’m still babysitting on Mondays and Tuesdays, but I’m also doing some volunteer work before Christmas so I’m keeping busy! It feels kinda nice, but I’m also pretty worn out. 😴 In other news, I really need to find some time to fit in some more reading. I’ve only read 44 books this year, which is nothing compared to my 70 last year, and I’m really hoping I can kick this slump soon. Hopefully I’ll be able to reach my (already reduced) goal of 60 books! 📚💕

aight I did not see this spiraling into mini-drama here but I’m going to try to say something because I get how awful feeling inferior is. Making comparisons can be difficult to avoid when you do not have very much confidence or especially when you feel as if you are not doing as well as you should be and are letting people down (this is cliche but everyone grows at different paces and regardless of progress you are loved). This obsessive comparing is extremely tolling on you and not worth the energy at all. As long as you are not adamant towards recovering like I was for the past few years, things will get better (or not as bad as it usually is). It’s not hopeless, I promise. There are people who do want you to feel your best and help you every step of the way and I hope you all have or will find at least one person like this in your lives.

That being said, this whole big blog/small blog thing should not matter because like dailyflygon said, we’re just a bunch of nerds drawing the Pokemon we love. My inferiority issues do lead me to assume ridiculous things like someone being more popular means that they’re obnoxious and exclude others unlike them, but I don’t get that with this community, even as a small, inactive, blog that is lacking in interaction (due to shyness). I’ve never considered myself a part of any communities before, but this one is extremely supportive and I want to at least protect that.

tl;dr It’s okay to feel down. We cannot control how we react to things, but we should not act on those feelings in a way that causes stress for others either. Instead, find a way to lift yourself back up without hurting yourself or anyone else.
