why are these walls so bumpy? seems that some plaster patching compounds from the mid century do not age well and turn into hard, bubble-like lumps. but why were the walls patched so many times??? it is like a mob scene in here
*screams into the abyss* STOP WRITING FICS WHERE THE MALE LEAD IS CONTROLLING AND JEALOUS, IT IS NOT HOT OR SEXY, IT IS ANNOYING AND SOMETIMES IT LEADS READERS TO BELIEVE THAT TYPE OF BEHAVIOR IS ACCEPTABLE AND NORMAL! A GUY SHOULD NOT “PUNISH” YOU JUST BECAUSE YOU EVEN LOOKED AT ANOTHER GUY!!! A GUY SHOULD NOT GET MAD AND POSSESSIVE JUST BECAUSE YOU HAVE OTHER MALE FRIENDS!!!
hasn’t read a book for fun in years because aside from lack of motivation, the swimming letters and jumbled words makes it hard for her to enjoy it
suffers from short-term memory loss — she’ll walk into a room and forget why she went there, or she’ll go into a book to fact-check something and can’t recall why she’s even flipping through the pages a minute later. sometimes she can’t remember whether she ate breakfast or not.
constantly misplaces her things, which is a result of her being disorganized — like shoving an assignment into the wrong binder when she’s in a hurry or can’t be bothered, or taking her phone into the kitchen and somehow finding it in the food pantry 20 minutes later
can’t keep her room clean for more than a few days before it’s a mess again, cluttered with textbooks and sketchpads and clothing littering the floor and shoved into the corners
never fails to procrastinate on her assignments, no matter how small. you could give her a whole year and she would still wait till the last minute
has trouble staying focused and often loses her train of thought — she could be giving a meticulously thought out explanation on something she’s passionate about and just completely go blank
will stare at the pages of her stupid textbook with tears of frustration in her eyes, silently begging herself to just focus because this reading was supposed to have been done weeks ago, but no matter how hard she tries the text on the page won’t stop jumping around
goes days and days without brushing/washing her hair and wears the same clothes for a whole week
becomes anxious and irritable at small things like a ticking clock or the beeping sound the smoke detector makes when its battery needs to be changed
gets sudden bursts of inspiration to start a completely new project at the most inappropriate times, like during an important lecture or at 1 am when she should be writing an essay that’s due the next morning.
because of this she ends up with a lot of incomplete works-in-progress and half-assed assignments
absolutely despises school and gets anxiety thinking about going back to class come sunday night
pretends to embrace the fact that people think she is “scary” and “intimidating” but after years of hearing it becomes very insecure — she wishes she were the first person to come to peoples’ minds when they think of someone nice and friendly.
is constantly insecure and ashamed of herself because she’s supposed to be debunking that stupid ‘dumb blonde’ stereotype but wonders if she’s only encouraging it when she looks back at her slip-ups/flubs during conversations and small mistakes on tests and terrible first impressions she’s made and every single impulsive decision she made that went wrong and— what kind of Athena kid is she?
i find it exponentially easier to believe that we are smart and extraordinarily creative and created something amazing than to believe that two white men who put out episodes like that on dr who all the time are controlling amazon dvd covers, piccadilly circus, a fake screening of that apple show at bafta and the marketing strategy of two separate broadcasting systems but i no longer know how to say this and have it come off as a massive compliment to US rather than trashing people’s fun
