birds in chaos

This is an accurate representation of what’s going on inside my computer right now. I’m restoring and sorting through thousands of older files this week, and it will probably take me longer than expected.

So I’ll be taking some time off to try and get things in order, and also to consider some new posts for Our Daily Bird that go beyond “here is a drawing of a bird in profile.” So wish me luck and I’ll be back really soon!

Why is Rio being rood :((

no offense anon but have you ever met a bird. theyre feathered beings of chaos. parrots literally thrive off of entropy. rio’s at his happiest when people are yelling, whether out of fear or anger. he lives and breathes drama.

u can see a glimmer of hell in his eyes when he starts doing his dance and squawking to imitate human yell conversations.

Writing - and the possibility of multitasking for focus

There’s a lot of talk about the importance on focusing when writing, but actually, my experience is that I do some of my best writing whilst simultaneously doing other things.

One of my favorite ways to write is to do household chores and move the laptop round with me in the flat as I work. I have the document open, and read what I’ve already written, and then I start folding laundry/doing dishes/packing moving boxes or whatever I might be doing whilst simultaneously contemplating the scene I’m working on, trying out words and letting my mind wander while my hands are busy. And whenever I get an idea, a phrasing or just have the urge to do so, I’ll drop whatever I’m doing and type it all out, working on it until I am out of spontaneous ideas/words, and then continuing to ponder the scene, imagining it, living it through in my mind until the next pressing urge to write something down comes.

It’s strangely liberating.

Anyone else doing something similar, and/or have thoughts on why this works when it shouldn’t - according to many advices on writing - do so?

(I don’t care about the advices - what works… works, but it’s still curious.)

In Treatment - Doubts

The thing about therapy when you have a mind that is a constant blend of all sorts of doubts is that before each session, I feel a strong resistance, wanting to cancel and wanting to end therapy all together, because what it comes down to is this one thought; what if I’m not actually in need of therapy?

It might sound strange, or perhaps that’s how everyone feels. I don’t know, which is strange, because I see so many patients myself, and yet I have no idea if this is common, because I don’t talk about it with my therapist (not much, anyway, but I felt brave a few weeks back and mentioned it), so perhaps… I don’t know.

It’s the persistant feeling that maybe I’m just a psychiatric hypochondriac, or perhaps I am just desperate to have some kind of easy excuse (not that it’s ‘easy’, but I can’t help what my brain narrates…) for being a lazy sod and not trying to learn certain things, or maybe I just want to feel… ‘special’, or perhaps… Perhaps I’m just imagining. And maybe my therapist has seen through this, even if I haven’t fully done so myself, and find me pitiful and tiresome. Maybe she constantly thinks that someone else could use those sessions much better than me, someone with real problems, and not just luxury ones.

I don’t just doubt the validity of what I experience mentally, my disorder(s), my problems and my needs, but also my experiences of how the therapist is (I think she’d actually round up the therapy and end it if there was nothing more to work on, and it was her call to continue another 6 months both times, but…). If there’s one thing I so despise, it’s the thought of just that; me being so selfish, so lacking in insight about my own pitiful needs for attention and also being a spoiled brat.

I doubt the validity of my realisations. I doubt the honesty of my own words. I doubt my own motivations. I doubt my ability to read others when it’s about how they feel about me. I doubt everything, and it’s something we’ve just begun talking about, and it scares me. 

And each time before a session, I feel like I should come up with something to discuss and talk about, and when I don’t instantly manage to do that, I feel like that’s a sign that I no longer need this therapy.

Being in therapy is hard work. For me, and maybe for many others as well, it’s not just about what you have to work through emotionally and cognitively in the sessions, but also about continuing to act against your doubts and shame and fear to be able to attend each session.

The only good thing about writing about this is that I realise that there might be a need to discuss this a bit more…

Suitors’ Back to School “Horror Stories”

“WHAT TIME IS IT?!”

Back to school time… -.-‘

It’s August now, which means that summer is nearly over and school is just around the corner (For those of us who are still in school, that is.). In honor or maybe distress of the “Back to School Season,” here are some scenarios of the MidCin suitors’ disastrous first days! I just wrote these situations for laughs: I genuinely hope that everyone doesn’t just have a good/decent/disaster-proof first day of school, but that you all have a great school year! <3

Now, let’s go to school with the suitors! 😊

*Warnings/Notes: modern day high school/college/uni AU; overly ridiculous and EXTRA situations; some cursing; high-key Lid shipping


Alyn:

  • He was running late, so he grabbed the nearest shirt he could find and headed out the door as soon as he got changed.
  • Unfortunately, the shirt Alyn chose got shrunk in the wash, so now he has to walk around school in a VERY tight shirt.
  • Halfway through the day, he gets so uncomfortable that he takes his shirt off for the rest of the day. Taking pity on his brother, Leo offers Alyn his favorite sweater a.k.a. the one with the broken zipper.
  • Alyn is humiliated that he has to walk through the halls and endure his classes basically half-naked for the rest of the day (however, the other students and staff members don’t seem to mind at all, huehuehue~.).

Leo:

  • He never should have trained Sebastian to be his alarm clock: the darn parrot kept on squawking “TIME FOR SCHOOL, DAMMIT, TIME FOR SCHOOL” throughout the entire morning EVEN AFTER LEO WOKE UP.
  • Eager to leave the house in order to get away from that loud parrot, Leo dashed out the door with his school books and bags – breakfast could wait ‘till later.
  • After that whirlwind of a morning, he finally gets to school. He meets up with some friends, makes an extra copy of his schedule at the library (even though he’s already memorized his classes by heart), grabs a quick bite to eat at the cafeteria, and then heads to his first class.
  • Everything was going smoothly until everyone heard a THUD at the window. Being the closest to that window, Leo nearly fell off his seat from the initial shock. Once he calmed down a bit, he opened the window and peeked outside: a red feather sat on the edge of the windowsill.
  • Suddenly, Sebastian flies through the window and into the classroom, knocking over school supplies and screaming “TIME FOR SCHOOL, DAMMIT, TIME FOR SCHOOL.
  • Before the bird could cause any more chaos, Leo grabs Sebastian and heads out of the classroom. Once he’s outside of the school building, he tells the bird, “GO HOME.” Thankfully, Sebastian listens, and he flies away while squawking “TIME FOR SCHOOL, DAMMIT.

Giles:

  • He had everything prepared for the day except for his schedule. He searched his entire house for it with no luck.
  • Suddenly, he hears the sound of paper getting shred coming from his bedroom. As he walks into the room, he sees his cat, Michel-freaking-angelo, destroying the schedule.
  • Ohhhh, that demonic cat is DEFINITELY not getting any treats tonight.
  • Since Giles’s printer ran out of ink, he decides to print his schedule at school.
  • Once he arrives at the campus and drops off Sid near the entrance (*See under “Sid” for that story.), he runs to the library, prints his schedule, and sprints out the door with the piece of paper in his hands.
  • It seemed like a good enough day for Giles, considering that Leo was his classmate for all his classes.
  • It wasn’t until the end of the day that Giles realizes that he grabbed a copy of Leo’s schedule, which Leo had failed to pick up before his first class. Whoops.
  • So much for “perfect attendance”… xD

Louis:

  • He snoozed his alarm clock for a few minutes b/c he needed a little… more… sleep…
  • And then he realizes that his first class starts in half an hour. AND IT TAKES HIM APPROXIMATELY AN HOUR TO DO HIS HAIR.
  • He resolves to just deal with his bed head later and super-condenses his daily routine (minus the hair care) from and hour and thirty minutes to about ten minutes. Once he’s ready, he grabs his school bag, shoves a piece of toast into his mouth, and heads out the door.
  • He’s almost at the school building with ten minutes to spare before his first class. He turns a corner when suddenly WHAM: he and another student collide against one another, Louis falling on top of the latter YES, I JUST USED LOUIS HOWARD IN AN ANIME TROPE. DON’T JUDGE ME. xD.
  • Louis is about to apologize to the person when he realizes whose arms he just fell into…
  • “SID, WHAT THE FU-?!?!”
  • “JESUS CHRIST, HOWARD. Look, man: I like you, but even this is a little too much for me.”
  • Thanks to his little encounter with Sid (*And a little something else~. See under “Sid” for that story.), pictures were taken and people gossiped about their “romance,” causing Louis to cringe and Sid to merely smirk and tease the former whenever the rumor was mentioned.

Sid:

  • He had driven a few blocks away from his house when his motorbike decided to act up and lose gas. Even worse: the bike stopped in front of his ex’s house – a.k.a. the a**hat that nobody likes - and Sid and his ex were NOT on good terms.
  • Instead of leaving his bike to the mercy of his merciless ex, Sid walked it to Giles’s house, which was further away from the school. Luckily, Giles was nice enough to offer Sid a ride to school.
  • Once they got to campus, Giles dropped off Sid near the entrance while the former looked for a parking spot. Sid turned a corner when WHAM: Louis was suddenly on top of him (*See under “Louis” for that story.).
  • Later that day, Sid’s ex confronts him in the cafeteria during lunchtime, screaming about how he “left me for Louis,” causing everyone to stop and stare at them. Sid was frozen at first, embarrassed by the sudden public humiliation even though what his ex said wasn’t entirely true.
  • Not wanting his ex to have the last laugh, Sid says, “At least I left for someone better.” Then, he grabs an unsuspecting Louis by the waist and pulls him in close, their faces inches away from each other. He whispers something into Louis’s ear, and the former nods.
  • Suddenly, the two of them are kissing in front of everyone, which earns them some “Ooohs” & “Aaahs,” and a ton of pictures. Once their mini make-out session is over, the enraged ex storms away as the crowd applauds Sid and Louis.
  • As the couple walks away, Sid whispers to Louis: “Thanks for playing along, Howard.” Louis angrily whispers back, “You owe me big-time, a**hole.”
  • “Aww, we’re already giving each other nicknames~.” “Shut the f*ck up and go to class already.”

Albert:

  • He was carrying most of his textbooks in his arms since he didn’t have enough room in his backpack. He had a few minutes to spare before his first class, so he hurried to his locker to drop off his books.
  • He’s almost reached his locker when BAM: he’s smacked in the face with another person’s locker. This causes him to almost drop his books.
  • “Owww. Watch it, will you-?”
  • “Oh my goodness, I’m so sorry!”
  • Albert stops, his mouth agape: he just got smacked by his crush!
  • OH SHIT ALBERT YOU NEED TO BREATHE HOWFASTCANAHEARTBEATLIKEHONESTLYCaLLtHEpArAmEdIcS.
  • He literally doesn’t know how to react as his crush is worrying over him. Albert finally snaps out of his trance as his crush remarks, “Oh shoot, I think I just broke your glasses.”
  • The glasses’ bridge was broken, leaving half of Albert’s frames dangling towards the floor. Luckily, his crush offered him a piece of tape to keep the glasses together.
  • Although Albert is happy that he (quite literally) bumped into his crush (or, in this case, their locker), he now has to wear his glasses as if he’s Harry Potter from the first movie (Pre-“Oculus Reparo!” a.k.a. Before Hermione fixes Harry’s glasses.).

Nico:

  • This morning was hell for poor Nico: he overslept, nearly put shampoo on his toothbrush, put his shirt on backwards, and almost forgot his backpack. 
  • Despite that, he somehow managed to catch the bus and get to all his classes on time. However, his bad luck didn’t end just then.
  • In the middle of the day, he was almost late for one of his classes, so he grabbed his stuff and made a beeline for the other classroom. He got to class on time; however, when he opened his bag, he didn’t find his school supplies.
  • Turns out that Nico and Albert both have similar looking backpacks.
  • Nico also happens to find Albert’s personal journal ohoho~.
  • Nico returns home while reading Al’s journal lolol at the end of the day only to be greeted by Albert’s harsh voice:
  • “Why, you brat! I can’t believe we bought the same backpack!”
  • And now an angry Albert is chasing Nico around the house because he doesn’t want Nico reading what he wrote about his crush. Oh boy…

Robert:

  • He was helping his art teacher set up the room for the next class since Robert got to the room early. 
  • As Robert finished distributing the art supplies to everyone’s stations, people began to file into the classroom. Once class began, Robert took a seat along with everyone else.
  • Suddenly, one of his classmates gasped. “Robert, are you bleeding?!” Surprised, Robert looked down at his white shirt: there were streaks of red forming on the left side of his chest.
  • The room immediately erupted into panicked chaos: people were running around the classroom looking for towels and first aid kits; some students stepped into the hallway to get better phone reception for calling 9-1-1 and the school’s nurses; and a select few actually fainted at the sight of the “blood.”
  • Telling everyone to calm down, Robert reached into his left shirt pocket. Turns out that his pet hedgehog Amber somehow got some red paint stuck on her body and had managed to stealthily climb up Robert’s shirt and into his pocket.
  • Although Robert was thankful that everyone was looking out for him, he was honestly so embarrassed that he made all his classmates worry for no reason.

Byron:

  • The clothes he had planned to wear for the day somehow got lost in either Nico or Albert’s closet, and the boys forgot to organize their clothes over the weekend, so Byron had to compromise.
  • The only things left for him to wear were a formal suit and tie and a snowy owl onesie.
  • He had to save his suit for an event at the end of the week, so he went with the owl onesie.
  • He honestly didn’t mind wearing it until he realized that everyone was staring at him. People even asked to take pictures with him.
  • Despite Byron’s calm composure, his cheeks were red for the entire day due to the embarrassing unwanted attention he was getting.
  • The truth is that everyone was staring at Byron because he somehow managed to make a silly and fluffy onesie look rather stylish. A bunch of students even wore onesies at the end of the school week to commemorate Byron’s first day of school outfit (What a trendsetter~.).

Rayvis:

  • Being the new kid on the block, he decided to explore the neighborhood with Luke before his classes started. Once Rayvis got back home, he changed his clothes, grabbed some food, and gathered his school supplies before walking to school.
  • Upon entering the campus, everyone stopped and stared at Rayvis. He frowned at them all. Is this how they greet newbies here? he thought to himself.
  • He suddenly noticed an underclassman getting cornered by a gang of upperclassman jocks. Rayvis was about to approach the group when he heard something growling beside him: it turns out that he accidentally brought Luke along with him for the walk to school.
  • With a mighty howl, Luke dashed towards the group and jumped in front of the bullies, blocking them from the innocent underclassman.
  • Rayvis arrived at the scene just in time to hear one of the bullies say, “Just get rid of the stupid dog.” Rayvis narrowed his eyes at the bully and coolly replied: “He’s actually a wolf. Now, I suggest that you all leave before he does more than just growl at you.” With that, the bullies ran away.
  • He extended a hand to the underclassman. “You’re safe now. Let me help you up.” Instead of accepting Rayvis’s hand, the underclassman began coughing and sneezing rather violently. Pointing at Luke, they managed to say a few words: “Dog… Allergies… Nurse…”
  • Leaving Luke to wait for him outside, Rayvis rushed the underclassman to one of the campus’s infirmaries. He stayed with the student, feeling that he owed them an apology for almost killing them with an allergy trigger. 
  • In the end, the student told Rayvis not to worry about their allergies and thanked him and Luke for saving them!

SOMEONE GIVE WALLY A PARROT! Wally would have SO much fun with that parrot I swear- can we get a comic of this?

((I can’t tell if giving Wally a parrot would be a fantastic idea, or a horrid one. He’d teach it every swearword and insult in the book. Joey doesn’t allow pets in the studio, but lets ignore that and say he took it to work with him? He’d leave the profanity-spewing bird outside Sammy’s office.

Chaos ensues.))
