but i had to post it because of the last two gifs

this shitty edit took me more time than it should have

so um i somehow got to 500 followers ? i still don’t know how the fuck you all put up with me but thank you ?? i never got this far even with my other blog that i have for almost 2 years now haha

so, because i never did it before, here’s a follow forever with all my lovely mutuals that i never talk to bc i have nothing to say and am too awkward & shy but i admire you all from afar

but first, a huge thank you to @dramaqueendan and @theoncomingfrenchie. you two are literally the lights of my life, idk where i’d be without you. i had so many problems going on in my life since the beginning of the year (still have but that’s not the point) but you both helped me so much, encouraged me to keep doing what i liked and for that i’ll always be grateful. laura, elena, i love you with all my heart

if i forgot to mention you, well first of all, you can throw me into space, but also feel free to message me so i can add you !! and im sorry )):

I had been meaning to create a follow forever for a long time. I think the last time I had made one was when I reached 1.1k less than two years ago. I also wanted to celebrate 2017 along with reaching 2.2k followers, so here I am with my follow forever post! Smooches and thank you’s to everyone who included me in their Christmas/New Year’s follow forever posts this holiday season (。♥‿♥。)

2016 was a really interesting year for me, personally. I worried about getting into grad school, got into my top two physics PhD programs, graduated from undergrad, started graduate school, fell in love, got my heart broken, fell in love again, broke someone’s heart again along with my own, made new friends, became closer with old friends, and generally grew a lot as a person, I think. I became more comfortable with speaking my mind and not being nervous about disrupting the peace (especially on this blog). I became more confident in my poetry and writing. I realized the importance of developing your own opinions and to think critically for yourself; the importance of free speech. I learned to stand up for myself and decided that having so many emotions was not a weakness, but a strength—to wear your heart on your sleeve is an admirable form of bravery. I started to pause myself when I feel like I am becoming a workaholic and treat myself. I decided that doubting myself was the biggest harm I could do to myself, and realized that I am so blessed to have family and friends that are constantly supporting and believing in me, unconditionally.

And when I say that I am blessed to have such amazing friends, this includes so many of you I am friends with on this blog. My friends here have always been so supportive of me, from my personal life to my academic career to my writing projects. Thank you for standing up for me and being kind, open minded people in this community. Thank you for encouraging me to post my poetry and for reblogging them. Thank you for writing with me. Thank you for always showering me with love, care, and being patient and always listening to me rant and brain-vomit writing ideas. I wouldn’t have stuck for so long in this community if it were not for you. I am so honored to call you my good friends.

So, I’m going to stop rambling and start hollah-ing at at brilliant babes  (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧

And of course all these amazing quality people on my dash that I have had the pleasure of having wonderful interactions with (and if we haven’t talked yet, please come into my inbox because I love your blog). You guys are my dashboard superstars and lighten up my days. I hope I will get to write with y’all someday (if you rp) if we haven’t already; and if we have, I hope we’ll get to write together again soon! I almost definitely have forgotten people that should be on this list, because there are so many wonderful people in the community to keep track of and I’m awful at keeping track of url-changes and such. Anyway, I love you all <3 I hope you have an amazing 2017 and that we will get to talk more and get to know each other better this year :)

FROM LAWRENCE TO LOS ANGELES 
Written by padaleckhi | Illustrated by wayoffcanon
     ↪ Everything is finally going right for Dean Winchester. He’s got an amazing job teaching first grade at Carver Elementary, he’s landing one night stands on a daily basis, and he’s got a best friend in Benny Lafitte to boot. Dean’s life is going perfectly…until the night Castiel Novak, his high school best friend whom he had a falling out with eighteen years ago, shows up at his apartment and demands that Dean join him on a reenactment of their road trip across the United States. The two then find themselves driving from Lawrence to Los Angeles, their trip filled with dive bars, one night stands, karaoke, diners, friendship, fireworks, and forgotten romance, all because of three words.
“Come with me.”

11 months! That is how long I’ve kept this project under wraps, and now that artist/author pairings are now posted I can finally talk about it! What began as a frivolous idea last summer has now turned into my first DCBB, and I couldn’t be more thrilled to share this with you all!
[All posts about this project are tagged ‘rae versus dcbb’ on my blog, fyi.]
[The banner inspiration came from unholyseraphs​‘ lovely one for her fic, which you can find here!]
