Do you ever just hate it when your parents just compare you with other parents children and be like “why can’t you be more like them?” or “look at them doing (insert amazing things) while you’re just sitting here doing nothing.”,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
you are all fishing for my reaction for like days now oh my god. okay to settle this, first of all - congrats liam, I hope this child makes you very happy. I’ll be super honest here, and won’t discuss this after saying it once so here we go: I do not understand this decision of his, I think it’s ridiculous, and the weirdest thing he could have done with his life, I don’t think it’s a smart move for his career at all. he is twenty-three and as a 23-year-old myself… I’m baffled by him, such a romantic guy and a person who is really into commitment and giving his all to a relationship and then to decide to have a baby after such a short time with a girl who is so much older than him, and then not even marry her before or at least get engaged. it’s weird, it’s not like him, it’s something I don’t understand but accept as a thing that happened. that said, most of my interest and deep longing for liam was based on thirst. there’s no point in me pretending it wasn’t because there is way too much proof of it on my blog for everyone to discover. so him having a baby… I knew that it was coming and all but like the actual photo kind of made any and all interest I had in him evaporate. I still love him, I still wish him the best, I still think the world of him, but the attraction is gone, and my interest was mainly based on me being attracted to him. this will sound shallow and I will get shit for this (I don’t care, I have zero policy for bullshit here so this is what I think and what you’ll get) but it’s the truth and it’s going to be visible in his sales and in his future projects because stars in the genre he is aiming at that are in the making should be available… you can’t be singing something like “just grab a room I swear no one will interfere girl bring your friends if you want we can share” (not saying it will be that explicit but still) and holding a baby bottle in the other hand. I will always support him, I think that goes for all of them as I love them dearly, but that extraness I had for him is gone and I cannot make myself be into him being a dad however I look at it.
nobody on this site wants to say this but “sucking it up” and mildly pushing yourself here and there legit helps with anxiety. the key is to be mindful of your fear (never deny it) and not overdo it, but nonetheless make actual effort to overcome fears.
neither therapy nor just avoiding stressful things ever really helped me with anxiety. the second i saw it shrink after i started pushing myself through stressful situations i felt goddamn liberated. to not get anxious about something that always made you anxious is a total bliss worthy of working towards.
you can’t choose to not have anxiety, but you can refuse to comply with it.
I'm an intp and I've noticed that I'm less likely to consider someone annoying than others are. Even if so, I can just stand that. I also rarely hate/don't like someone, I'm always tolerative or (usually) indifferent. I was thinking it might be because I just don't pay attention to some behaviours, or I don't care much because I'm weird myself. Either way, do you think it's common amongst intps?
Probably. While we may notice lots of stuff about other people, I think we process it differently than other people. I mean, we often remember things very clearly, such as what people are wearing, little movements they make, etc., but we process all this stuff in one big lump–that is, it’s all part of the Outside World, or whatever is outside of our brains.
Other people, I think, are more likely to process these things as actual human actions, and they’ll link them with the humans and say, “Oh, this person did/said this, so I like/don’t like him.”
Whereas we INTPs will say, “This person did/said this, so I know this about him.”
A person’s actions are not an invitation to make a judgement on a person, to us INTPs, at least. We view people as just more links in the world, more facts to be looked at so that we can draw conclusions. It’s colder, yes, but as a result we seem more tolerant of other people. And the reason we seem more tolerant is not necessarily because we are tolerant, and not even necessarily because we don’t care, but because we see the world in a different way.
So, here’s the thing. I love fluff and romance and all that cheesy stuff. But it grinds my gears that I can’t find a translation for some things I wanna say in my writings.
I love you = Ich liebe dich (in German) A declaration of love, a BIG one. But in German, we also have the “weaker” form: Ich hab dich lieb Which you could say to good friends or someone you are not in love with (yet) and I would love to use it sometimes in my Oneshots, because in my opinion “I love you” is often too much. Just a bit over the top. If I put it in my translator, though, it, too, translates with “I love you” and it makes me mad. No, it is not that big I love you yet, come on, give me something to work with here! *pulls hair* *crazy laughter* *cries*
So here’s a question to all those native speakers out there (or those who are better in English than me. So… a lot!): What can I say for “ich hab dich lieb”? Something that isn’t quite as big and heavy as I love you?
Was it common to design your own t shirts in the 90s for American high school kids? Can't say the same for 90s uk kids. In fact I can't think of anyone I know who did this. Was this something Dylan did to add a personal touch to his everyday outfits, and then again wit Eric for their final nbk tees?
Yeah, it was kind of a thing in the nineties to make up individual sayings for t-shirts and have them screen printed at the mall. Now, people just use Zazzle. The boys liked to make a point of being creative individuals, standing out and being different from all typical Columbine classmates that wore boring, bland homogenized status brand clothing like Tommy Hilfiger’ or ‘American Eagle’. It was basically irreverent fun to make your own tee and proudly wear stuff like ‘Hilfiger is Gay’ (Dylan’s idea) or ‘Bück dich’ (Eric’s Rammstein reference meaning Bend Over) all the while getting offended / weird looks from Jocks and snobby cheerleaders. Being a teenager in Littleton meant it was super easy to be rebellious because it was such a boring snoozeville of a town. The two liked to kick it up a notch and rattle people’s cages going against the grain.
I want to clarify something really fast for those who read my post about that youtube comment last night. I added a comment on there a few minutes later that I think could imply something I don’t agree with at all (and it may have, I have not checked my notifications yet). When I said it’s okay to be ignorant in most cases, I meant that as lacking knowledge (specifically anatomy & sex ed in this context, but I was referring to stuff you learn at school in general) due to circumstances beyond your control, mostly due to not receiving a decent education. And when I say it’s okay, I mean that I wouldn’t make fun of someone for that. But that guy made a pretty typical sexist remark further down in the comments, which is why I decided to post what he said here cause he’s just a dick. Which is why I followed that up by saying, “being willfully ignorant and using that to spout hateful shit is not okay, which is what he did”. It sounded okay to me originally, but since I’m bad at explaining shit, I realized later that those two sentences together could definitely imply that I meant it is okay to spout hateful shit due to being -not willfully- ignorant. That is not what I meant at all! I’m just so terrible at explaining stuff and trying to get my points across clearly. So I apologize to anyone that I may have upset by saying that!
Thank you for creating our favorite cartoon characters.
Thank you for those useful life lessons conveyed by them.
Thank you for making my childhood a better one because of PPG.
And thank you for giving me a second one because of WOY.
I remember once you said that you were brought up by a single mother, that really made me feel less lonely because I was suffering from terrible family issues due to my father’s affair at that time. Also thank you very much for telling me that.
I wish one day in the future you can have the chance to finish telling the story of Wander’s adventure. Please @disneyxd make this dream come true.
And now I’m very, very looking forward to your new project, whatever it is.
The only thing I can make for you is this little GIF of my favorite characters from the shows you made, to say “thank you” and to say”Happy birthday” in advance.
Good luck to you，my favorite animator of all time！
