I wake up in the morning to the sound of the alarm clock beside my head, which is as insufferable as the room is stuffy. In the laundry room, there are no windows – just a few rows of washers and dryers, stacks upon stacks of folded towels, and shelves that hold the cheapest detergent the YMCA can afford.
Yeah, you read that right: I’m currently sleeping at the Y. Of course, by “sleeping at” I actually mean squatting, and by “currently,” I mean… Well, I’ve been staying here for about a year.
this was easy for about two years, and then it became really, really hard. but anyway, @sashayed inspired me so here is a song for every year that i have been on this planet. i still go hard to ALL OF THEM today. also, you can listen to it all on spotify right here

“And look at you!” he said, spreading his arms wide and laughing so fondly that she felt a sudden burst of warmth in her chest. “Midshipman Sheffield once, a proper captain now. Explorer, sailor, merchant’s son…”
He let his hands drop back to his sides and grinned.
omg guys, there’s this series of GF shorts named “Shop at Home with Mr. Mystery” which originally aired in November 2015 and is basically a bunch of fake commercials featuring puppet!Stan trying to ged rid of various Mystery Shack junk, and I really regret not watching it sooner because it’s a *freaking treasure*. can’t remember the last time I got this inspired to draw GF shit :D
(Bill and Stan’s phone talk is from this short and this line actually made me freak out for a second because knowing Alex, it’s either a subtle foreshadowing to the finale, or a hint that Bill is still in Stan’s mind :)))
You should speak to somebody. You should. If you have a problem, do not suffer in silence. Speak to a friend, or a teacher, or a sister, or another adult. You might not like your parents or your teachers or your siblings, there will be someone you can talk to. You’d be surprised. Any kind of random relative. Even if you don’t think they can help in any way, it’s just good to talk because little Dan was just like *timid face* the whole time and *laughs* now I have so many issues. Honestly, they’ll be with me forever.

Please listen to him. Too many people look back at their lives realising how much could have changed if they’d dared to open their mouth about what was bothering them. It’s scary as heck but please do not suffer in silence.
