es mi casa

20 Reflexiones que las personas con ansiedad quieren compartir contigo

1. “No te rindas y alejes de mí cuando me aíslo”.

2. “A veces realmente ayuda tener a alguien que amas y confías para que te recuerde que sólo debes respirar”

3.“Incluso cuando las cosas son increíbles, siempre estoy esperando que algo horrible suceda”.

4. “Cuando estoy tranquila; no estoy triste, aburrida, cansada o lo que sea que quieran catalogarme. Sólo que hay muchas cosas que están pasando por mi cabeza y a veces no puedo seguir el ritmo de lo que está pasando a mi alrededor”.

5. “En serio. No eres tú, soy yo. La ansiedad en general se siente como un ahogamiento todo el tiempo. La mayoría de las veces la vida intensifica ese sentimiento. Si se me hace difícil hacer planes, no lo tomes como algo personal”.

6. “Cuando me preguntas ‘¿estás bien?’, puedes pensar que no confío en ti cuando te digo ‘sí, estoy bien’. Pero en mi mente, creo que vas a dejar de verme como una persona amable, divertida y calmada si supieras la verdad”.

7. “Necesito que te acerques a mí, incluso cuando estoy tan ansiosa que he dejado de salir de casa. Necesito saber que alguien todavía se preocupa por mí y quiere verme”.

8. “Lo siento. Perdón por cada invitación que he declinado, por todas esas veces que he parecido irracional o desagradable porque me sentí abrumada o asustada. Lo siento por cada vez que he dicho que me gustaría hacer algo, pero luego me retracto. Lo siento también si mi ansiedad te hace daño”.

9. “Analizo constantemente las cosas por culpa de mi ansiedad. No puedo detener a mi cerebro y eso puede ser agotador”.

10. “La ansiedad no tiene un ‘look‘. No tengo que estar temblando o hiperventilada para estar ansiosa”.

11. “Si no estoy cómoda haciendo algo, sólo déjalo ir. No trates de convencerme, lo pone peor”.

12. “No soy un cubo de hielo. A veces la ansiedad me impide hacer cosas sociales. Puede que cancele a último minuto, pero nunca es por hostilidad o pereza. Sé que si me necesitas estaré ahí con todo lo que pueda”.

13. “No es tu trabajo ‘arreglarme’. Por favor ámame de la manera que soy”.

14. “La mayoría del tiempo tampoco sé qué está pasando por mi cabeza. Entiendo que no lo comprendas, pero tus esfuerzos significan el mundo para mí”.

15. “Sigue invitándome a planes en grupo aunque usualmente los decline. Algunos días me siento más fuerte que otros, así que mi respuesta puede sorprenderte. Sé paciente”.

16. “No lo tomes como algo personal cuando no quiero salir. Mi zona de comodidad es mi casa. Es mi espacio seguro”.

17. “Cada vez que hablo contigo, pienso en cada palabra de esa conversación. Si digo algo, siento que no lo debería haber dicho. Incluso si es tan algo tan simple como un error gramático, me obsesionaré con eso por años”.

18. “A veces sólo necesito estar sola. No es personal. No estoy enojada. No tengo un problema. Es sólo que no quiero hacer algo divertido. Sólo necesito estar sola para poder restablecerme y respirar un poco”.

19. “Cuando digo que no puedo asumir incluso una cosa, necesito que me entiendas que realmente no puedo”.

20. “Cuando no puedo hacer algo, nadie está más decepcionado que yo. Por favor intenta entender eso”.

Laws of Gravity Need Not Apply - yuu_chi (T/11,117)
It’s a difficult thing to go from secretly crushing on your school rival at a distance to sharing a tentative psychic connection with him, an audience of three other people, and an assorted collection of sentient machines.
I feel like I’m gonna have an aneurysm with all this build up haha. Emotions, and dealing with the feels and then it finally all comes together (lots of fluff)

Huddling For Warmth - WhisperElmwood (not rated, but I give G/3,162)
After ridding a planet of it’s Galra invaders, Keith and Lance literally have to huddle for warmth. Keith is jealous, Shiro is proud and Pidge gets all nerdy. There may also be mutual pining.

Blueprints - underthesilentstars (M/43,055) WIP
“While soulmarks themselves were common, it was rare for someone to have anything other than the name of their other half…and Lance had a red paw print.”
Still a wip but it’s so well written and the incorporation of the soulmark with canonverse? SO GOOD 

Dumbass and Fishboy - sweatpantz (M/4,954)

Hmmmmmm handcuffs  

Lonely In Love - Warmybones (M/2,110)

Damn. This is so soft and fluffy

Bottle Episode - themoistplinth (M/13,014)

When Keith found himself mentally linked to Lance of all people, he never thought that it would end in anything but irritation and misery on both sides.

—Explicit—

Driving Me Wild - arrafrost (E/7,095)
Keith and Lance aren’t able to get more than a few minutes of alone time, sometimes less, and are always interrupted by their teammates whenever things start to progress in their relationship. They are more than a little frustrated and it’s only a matter of time until one of them snaps. 

Keep On Coming Back For More - arrafrost (E/3,303)
An overconfident Lance boasts that he is better at everything, including kissing. Normally he’s shot down, doubted from the start, so when he’s challenged to prove it… things get a little complicated.
Um yeah, their competitiveness knows no bounds lol

Far Away From Nothing - ikira (E/12,552)
When Lance is the last of the paladins to be recovered after their separation through the corrupted wormhole, everyone is a little concerned for him, considering how much Lance likes to be around people. Surprisingly, Keith seems to be the most concerned of all.
Worried keith can be so sweet awhh

Unconventional Seating - talinor (E/4,697)

Midnight Purple - hiat (E/5,421)
Keith is jealous. Lance is an asshole. It works out in the end.
So wonderfully descriptive ;D

Too many times the Spanish language is subjected to a barbaric butchering of its beautiful sound and its harmonious structure. Growing up in the United States I would often hear Spanish being spoken by non-Spanish speakers in a mocking, almost dismissive, way. Luckily, nowadays, there seems to be more of a push for truth. This is my contribution towards that truth.

HOW NOT TO SOUND LIKE A GRINGO WHEN SPEAKING SPANISH

1. NO PROBLEMO

No. Sandwiching an English noun between an el and a letter O, does not make it Spanish; nor is it ingenious anymore. Seen it. Heard it. Next.

2. MI CASA ES SU CASA

This one is sweet. It implies that Latino households are warm and hospitable. This is very true, however, Latinos don’t have to say this because it’s implied! The closest I’ve ever heard to this phrase is: Estás en tu casa. For example; if you ask to use the restroom at someone’s home, they might say: Claro, estás en tu casa. This means, “Of course, you’re in your own home.”

3. MUY CALIENTE!

You might say this if the soup burned your tongue, but never is it used to describe someone’s sex appeal. Spanish has a million and one ways of expressing attraction towards someone. Two of the most commonly used phrases are “¡Qué guapo/a!” and “¡Qué chulo/a!” 

4. RAPIDO, RAPIDO! ANDALE, ANDALE! ARRIBA, ARRIBA!

<Sigh> I won’t mention that cartoon mouse as it’s way before the average Tumblr user’s time. However, I have noticed that The Amazing Race contestants love to yell “rapido, rapido!” at taxi drivers from Spanish-speaking countries. I understand where they’re coming from, and I don’t blame them, but this is plain rude. Say this instead: ¿Puede ir un poco más deprisa, por favor?

5. NO COJONES

If you want to tell someone they have no balls, tell them in English! Don’t veil your contempt for someone by misusing the Spanish language. A common way of saying this accurately is: No tienes agallas. It’s strong without being vulgar.

6. COMPRENDE?!

The condescending use of “comprende” when a Spanish speaker does not understand something is the height of humiliation. Try getting some help. If you actually do speak Spanish, there’s another way of saying this: ¿Me hago entender?

7. HASTA LA VISTA

I’ve never heard any Spanish speakers ever say this. Along with adiós, “hasta la vista” is seriously misused and abused. Read my previous post on other ways of saying adiós by clicking <HERE>. 

8. AMIGO

Yes, Spanish-speaking people are friendly, but that does not make them your amigo. Wait for them to call you “mi parce” or “mi compa” before you reciprocate. True amigos don’t call each other amigo.

9. NO BUENO

This popular phrase is incorrect on so many levels. At best, it sounds like a phrase that a Spanish-speaker might put together during early infancy. To learn the different ways to express that something is not good click <HERE>.

you know what I really like about contemporary Japanese Residential architecture? Some of it is like “fuck the outside, my house is more black than my soul, fuck windows in the front” *angry cat noises*  and then , some of it is like “what about a facade, but it’s like cheese , yea with them holes in it, made out of the most transparant construction materials u own,  please come in mi casa su casa u know”

VUUVIE'S BACK, BITCHES!!!

Here’s a past post link, so let’s get right into this!

Scenario: The first part was at the beginning of the session. Everyone was walking to their next destination out in an open field when it starts snowing. Like… Heavy snowing. So, it was up to William the Human Warlock, Jun the Wood-Elf Monk, and Vuuvie the-… uh… Vuuvie to do what they could against the elements…

William: *Lifts a hand to catch some snow flakes* “Oh my, it appears that we are due for some bad weather.”

Jun: “Pfft. Worthless, human warlock. He can’t even handle a little bit of cold.”

Vuuvie: “I donno. It feels kinda homey. Like death is trying to snuggle you for some reason.”

Group, and DM: “…”

Vuuvie: “I’m gonna just burrow us a shelter in the ground.”

William: * Gives Vuuvie a look of confusion. * “You… Can burrow?”

Vuuvie: “Are you kidding me?” * Lifts arms in character, but shows a sketch of the character having HUGE monster arms as an out of character action. * “Look at these giant arms! They could bludgeon a gorilla, and emasculate him at the same time!”

DM (OOC): “Okay, roll a survival check for Vuuvie.”

 * Instantly rolls a Nat20, and the DM rolls their eyes from behind their screen. *

Vuuvie (OOC): “So, this is how it goes down: Vuuvie just starts winding his arms up, and burrows into the ground like an automatic construction excavator. Pretty soon, he’s just created a huge pile of dirt that has neatly made a large pile outside of the freshly dug hole.”

Jun (OOC): * Already knowing that this was gonna be worth while. * “Can I investigate this?”

  * They investigate, and jump down the hole. *

Vuuvie (OOC): “As soon as you jump down, the digging sound ceases. Yet, you are now faced with a large security door bolted into the dirt wall. The door is also made of dirt.”

Jun (OOC): “I knock on the door.”

Vuuvie: * A small pannel in the door slides open revealing a set of eyes. They are obviously Vuuvies. * “No-one sees the wizard! No-way! No-how!”

Jun: “It’s me, Vuuvie.”

Vuuvie: “Oh, okay.”

  * The DM is busy laughing their ass off as Vuuvie proceeds to open the door showing a highly detailed, and decorated room with fine decor. Tables, statues, furniture. Even separate rooms with load bearing support beams. All made out of sand. *

Vuuvie: “Please wipe your feet.” * Vuuvie motions to a welcome mat that is also made of sand before walking to a sand-sofa, and turning on a sand-lamp that he casted ‘Light’ on to turn on so that he could read a book made of sand that was titled ‘101 Things You Can Do With Sand - By Vuuvie Jaster.’ *  "Make yourself at home. Mi casa, es su casa.“

DM (OOC): “I’m guessing that the ceiling is just a thin layer of dirt, and grass, so it collapses on both of you.”

Vuuvie: “Hm… I feel a draft. Jun, would you be a dear, and turn on the sand-thermostat?" 

i see a lot of fic/headcanons where fake ah crew geoff sort of opens his penthouse to the crew like, sure, stay here if you want, we’re all family, mi casa es su casa

but i also just immensely love the idea of, instead of that, the crew just relentlessly integrates themselves into his life whether he likes it or not

like one night they’re at the penthouse celebrating a heist well done and everybody’s grumbling about having to drive home late and most of them are drunk and geoff sighs like, well, okay, i’ve got some guest rooms

but then a couple weeks later michael shows up out of the blue to watch it’s always sunny and pushes past geoff into the penthouse as soon as the door is opened and geoff is like, um.

and then a week after that jack lets herself into his place (when??? did she get a key????) because according to her she has damn well earned a long, restful bath this week and your bathtub is the size of most family-sized jacuzzis so move the fuck over and let me use my new bath bomb, and geoff is like, um????

and then later he notices that there are like forty-seven cans of red bull in his fridge from gavin and geoff is all hold on a second here—

and then finally one morning he stumbles into his kitchen, exhausted and probably hungover, only for fucking ryan to hand him a mug of coffee, and he mumbles thanks automatically and then it’s like that one avengers post and geoff goes “HOW DID YOU GET INTO MY HOUSE?”

“ray let me in.” (”’sup,” says ray from the living room.)

“HOW DID YOU GET INTO MY HOUSE???”

“dude, i’ve been living here for the past week and a half.”

Pero a ti podría decirte que haré de cualquier lugar que lama tus huellas tu hogar.

A ti podría decirte que si algún día me abandonas me colocaré delante, justo en ese preciso lugar que no te permita nunca mirar hacia atrás con pena.

A ti podría decirte que has de saber que ya ocupas mis ojos, que llevo tu risa incrustada en mis arterias, que no hay lugar en mi cuerpo en el que no quepa tu pena, que cuando no tengas un sitio al que volver pienses que tienes abiertos todos mis huecos.

A ti podría decirte que si un día te sientes perdida dentro de ti misma, daré con la solución a tu laberinto abriéndome el pecho y poniéndote delante, justo en ese lugar donde hablo tanto de ti que no te costará esfuerzo reconocerte y volver a encontrarte.

A ti podría decirte que para mí cualquier lugar es mi casa si eres tú quien abre la puerta.
