food does crazy things to me

Scumbag Aunt ripped off my Grandma for years, I put my nose in her business and had the IRS financially ruin her.

This is going to be long, so TL; DR; Aunt screwed over my Grandma for years, I put my nose in her business, got parents wise on the fraud and eventually reported her to the IRS. The long dick of the IRS bankrupted her and her husband and now they are destitute and too old to work. 


This happened about 5 years ago. My Grandma was getting old, late 80s/early 90s. She had one wish, to not die in a senior home. Easily done as my Grandpa sold some assets way back when, then invested the money and let it ride for 30+ years; he never touched it and collected a pension.

Way back when my Grandpa died, (about 10 years before this), my Grandma appointed my dad, this shitty aunt and my uncle as the Trustees of the trust. Basically the trusted advisors for her and her care for the foreseeable future. All was well in the beginning, then my dad (Willy) moved further away and couldn’t take care of the day to day upkeep as the Trustee and to see that my grandma was ok. My aunt (Rebecca) told her that she and my uncle (Fred, who lived in Arizona) could take over and all would be fine. It was fine for a while.

Cool Kids

Kathy met Nick one day in the middle of the school year. It wasn’t any sort of unusual day, Kathy hadn’t woken up feeling any different and everything went as it normally did. She checked herself on the scale in the morning, depression flooding her as she noticed she hadn’t lost a single pound and then she went about the rest of the time getting ready for school.

That was normal too, the girls and boys laughed and whispered about her and a nice little pink note that read ‘Piggy’ with a crudely drawn pig on it was waiting for her, stuffed into her locker rather viciously.

She had gone into the bathroom to cry and it was when she looked up into the mirror after washing her face that she saw him, the tall, handsome boy that she’d never seen before and hadn’t heard come in.

GOT7 Hogwarts Moodbard AU Introductory Post

Im Jaebum : Slytherin

Fifth Year | 11″ Hornbeam, Horned Serpent Horn, Rigid | Quidditch Beater | Black Mamba (Patronus) | Pureblood | Parseltongue | Defense Against the Dark Arts, Potions, Herbology (best subjects) | Park Jinyoung (boyfriend) | Choi Youngjae & Jackson Wang (best friends) | Member of the Silver Spears

  • On the one hand, Jaebum is your typical Slytherin. Or at least he appears to be. He’s very aloof and standoff-ish. Jaebum is extremely independent and will not take your shit. He appears to have a perpetual bad attitude and definitely has a bad case of ‘resting bitch face’.
  • He is very cunning and very ambitious. He will do what needs to be done and he won’t think twice about it. He can manipulate people very well (and don’t think he won’t) and he isn’t exactly overly excited to be your best friend.
  • However, there’s more to JB than you might expect. Yes, he will do what needs to be done, but JB has never once done any harm in order to advance his own personal goals. The few times he has had to bring out the ‘slytherin’ side of him as been in aid of a friend. And he does not regret it and will do it again.
  • JB is about as loyal as they come. He doesn’t make friends easily but once you’re in, you’re in for life. Jaebum would kill for you.
  • He is a bit of an over achiever. Can kind of seem stiff and rigid when it comes to his academic progress, but he really just wants to do his best no matter what it is. Even something others would consider trivial. Good news is he’s not in ‘competition’ with anybody. He just wants to be the best him he can be.
  • He’s got a soft side…kind of. He likes cats. He has a cat he brought with him to Hogwarts (Nora, let’s be honest), but he always seems to attract the stray cats running around, too.
  • Also has a soft spot for Jinyoung. And kind of a hard spot for him, too…now that we’re on the subject.
  • Jinyoung does not take his shit. That sour puss attitude can be left at the dungeon door, thank you very much.
  • Don’t get it twisted, Jinyoung likes the ‘bad boy’ attitude Jaebum gives off, but he’s fully aware that most of it is for show and that Jaebum can be a fully fleshed out person rather than the Slytherin stigma. And he expect no less.
  • They’re relationship is very odd, especially to outsiders. They’re very clearly the ‘parents’ of their circle of friends. They can often be seen face palming or glaring with a twitchy eyebrow.
  • Seriously, if Bammie doesn’t shut up in the next two seconds JB is going to hex him. And Jinyoung would probably let him.
  • He’s really good at DADA and he’s leaning more towards becoming an Auror when he leaves Hogwarts.
  • He’s on the quidditch team as a beater. Go figure.
  • He has to be careful, though. One time he was playing against Gryffindor and accidentally knocked Jackson off his broom, breaking his arm.
  • JB legit thought Mark was going to kill him.
  • He wasn’t too far off because not even two hours later he was very suddenly hanging in the air by his feet and was being pelted with dungbombs and stink pellets, with a very angry looking Mark glowering up at him (using all non verbal magic, of course, little git).
  • To be honest, Jaebum was TRYING to be mad at him for it, but the last time somebody physically hurt Jinyoung he thought he was going to blow the entire school up with how angry he was. So he let it go fairly quickly and just accepted his punishment.
  • Jaebum can speak parseltongue. It was inherited from his family, don’t ask him why or how because he doesn’t know or care. He thinks it’s pretty cool.
  • He has an extremely powerful wand, coupled with an extremely powerful wandcore. JB was well aware of this when the wand chose him and he’s very careful with it. Hornbeam wood is a fantastic wood, but it bonds very quickly and takes on the moral compass of its owner. Too many dark thoughts and the wand can very easily wish to perform dark magic.
  • On the other hand, Hornbeam also has the ability to align with white magic, and not only align with it, but refuse to perform dark magic if JB doesn’t wish it, too. Jaebum likes this idea.
  • His patronus is a black mamba, kind of obvious as to why.
  • Jaebum is a member of the Silver Spears. He originally wasn’t going to join, but Jinyoung is the co-founder and kind of roped him into it. He doesn’t mind it now, It allows for him to really work on his spellwork, which isn’t so bad.
  • His best friends are Youngjae and Jackson. Yes, he is best friends with a Hufflepuff and a Griffyndor. I told you he only appeared to be a traditional Slytherin.
  • Jackson’s loud personality evens out Jaebum’s temperamental one very well. As far as Youngjae is concerned, JB is convinced that he is the sun reincarnated and he likes him and will fuck someone’s shit up if they ever try to dim that light. He loves Youngjae, OK?
  • Jaebum doesn’t care about blood status. Never has. His boyfriend might be a pureblood but one of his best friend’s is a muggle born. So stfu.
  • He likes to sing (and trust me, you like to HEAR him sing because good lord it’s like a party in your ears and it makes you feel things).
  • He’s a foodie. You can often find him in the Great Hall, stuffing his face. Also…he does not share food. Don’t touch unless you wanna lose a finger.
  • When Jaebum wants to be alone, you can usually find him somewhere near the lake, surrounded by all the stray cats. Seriously, he’d be a crazy cat lady if it weren’t for Jinyoung.
  • Jaebum is basically a soft marshmallow covered in thick scales that you can’t penetrate unless he wants you to. Don’t underestimate him and don’t take him for granted. I promise, you’ll regret it either way.
  • He COULD kill you but he CHOOSES not to, is basically what I’m saying.

anonymous asked:

This hiatus got me soo crazy that I'm watching all the episodes all over again *except that just the bugheads parts :D* and im realizing so many new things like jugheads relationship with food 😄 the moment he asks for bettys food, one scene hes looking at ronnies fries other scene hes eating them. Cole talked about this like they dont obviously show his food obsession but there are little things to notice. Now im watching every scene that includes juggie and food in it 😂

he DOES love his food poor homeless boy. is your new otp juggie x food? 

LOVED the way he asked for Betty’s food. Such a small intimate thing between the two of them in the midst of the crew.

Hunting a ghost… EXACTLY! Who does that? Us. Right. And that Sam, that is exactly why our lives suck. I mean, come on, we hunt monsters! What the hell? I mean, normal people, they see a monster, and they run. But not us, no, no, no, we — we search out things that want to kill us. Yeah? Or eat us! You know who does that? Crazy people! We are insane! You know, and then there’s the bad diner food and then the skeevy motel rooms and then the truck-stop waitress with the bizarre rash. I mean, who wants this life, Sam? Huh? Seriously? Do you actually like being stuck in a car with me eight hours a day, every single day? I don’t think so! I mean, I drive too fast. And I listen to the same five albums over and over and over again, and I sing along. I’m annoying, I know that. And you —you’re gassy! You eat half a burrito, and you get toxic! I mean, you know what? You can forget it. Stay away from me Sam, okay? Cause I am done with it. I’m done with the monsters and — and the hellhounds and the ghost sickness and the damn apocalypse. I’m out. I’m done. I quit.

Firsts

Summary: Jackson takes you on a date, and you walk down memory lane, talking about different firsts over the year you’ve been together. At the restaurant, Jackson decides he wants to do a new first, and things start getting heated.

Character: Jackson, You

Genre: Smut with a bit of fluff.

Warning: Sexual Content

Length: 2007

“Darling!” Jackson said, drawing your attention away from your book. He was looking at you with the sweetest smile, making you suspicious. Jackson only called you “darling” when he wanted something from you.

You set down your book and gave Jackson your full attention. “Yes?”

“Let’s go do something fun. I’m bored.” Jackson sat down next to you and looked right into your eyes. The intense eye contact was a little intimidating, and you could never say no to Jackson.

Eating is good. Eating is great.

Prompt (Aokaga Month Day 5): Eating

(In which either of them contemplates the many feelings that come with eating, and tries to be poetic about their fateful love affair over a stolen piece of cake. Is it Aomine or Kagami? Take your pick.)

I love eating. I wish I was kidding. Eating every day, eating every hour, eating every food, eating what I want. Eating is something I’m inherently attuned with, and eating hasn’t done me anything wrong. A few bouts with the occasional stomachache, yes, but never anything medicine or a trip to the bathroom can’t handle. I adore eating.

Eating makes healthy a boy. I am still growing, and my appetite knows no bounds. Eating makes me happy. I am best friends with food, and my fondness knows no limits. Eating makes me feel alive. (It does keep me alive.) But as much as I love food and consuming, I am only human, and only recently eating has become too routine, too boring.

Eating with classmates has been fine. Eating with friends has been cool. Eating with my cohort has been great. And yet at the end of every meal that leaves no more room to fill, an emptiness has overwhelmed me, an unceasing cause of discomfort beneath my belly.

It is not the type of void that comes with eating alone. Heck, I have been rarely eating alone. Companionship does crazy things to your psyche, and more often these days, I have entirely avoided eating all by myself.

And yet no matter how I have tried to account for the teeny amount of fulfillment felt by dining with my rowdy buddies, there has been something I am certain that I have been missing.

Eating is good. Eating is great. Eating makes healthy a boy, it not only gains me weight. Friendship can be forged through a meal. Stories shared over or after a meal have become staple to me.

And yet, I have felt lonely.

Eating is good. Eating is great. I have tried to repeat the words, but on my anxiety they only grate.

Until you came.

Eating is good. Eating is great. Eating has been as natural as breathing, until you came and snatched my cake.

Eating is good. Eating is great. Eating has almost become a bore, until you decided to call dinner a date.

Eating is good. Eating is great. But eating with you—it’s got to be the best.

(End of my poetic murder.)

Us, right. And that, Sam, that is exactly why our lives suck. I mean come on, we hunt monsters. What the hell? I mean, normal people, they see a monster and they run, but not us. No, no, no we-we search out things that want to kill us, yeah, huh, or eat us. You know who does that? Crazy people. We are insane. You know, and then there’s the-the-the bad diner food. And-and the-the skeevy motel rooms. And then the truck stop waitress with the bizarre rash. I mean who wants this life Sam? Huh? Seriously? I mean do you actually like being stuck in a car with me eight hours a day, every single day? I don’t think so. I mean, I drive too fast, and I listen to the same five albums over and over and over again and-and-and I sing along, I’m annoying, I know that. And you, you’re gassy. You eat half a burrito and you get toxic. I mean, you know what?

Dean and you were walking around, canvassing Hunter’s Point, waiting for any sign of the werewolf who bit Madison. “It’s kind of ironic, isn’t it?”

“What?” Dean asked.

“That a werewolf is killing chicks at a place called Hunter’s Point.” You chuckled. “I find it funny.”

“You’re such a dork.” Dean laughed. You smiled back.

I’m Not Her - Part Two

A/N: Kind of a filler chapter. It’s just to set up the plot. Hope you enjoy!<3

Knocking on the door to Garcia’s bat cave, you opened the door and peeked your head in. “Penny?”

She whirled around in her chair to face you and smiled. “’Sup Buttercup?”

You laughed softly and walked into her office, closing the door behind you and took a seat next to her. “I need some advice. Mine and Spencer’s 11 month anniversary is on Saturday and I need some ideas of what to do.”

“You have come to the right person, my love. What are you thinking of?”

“Well, I want to do something really romantic. Spencer and I haven’t really done anything besides cuddle and the occasional makeout session. I was planning on letting him take my virginity.” you replied, flushing a bright red.

Garcia squealed and hugged you. “Well, in that case, we’re gonna have to go lingerie shopping. We got to get you something that screams ‘Come get me Genius’. How does tomorrow night sound?”

You nodded your head and smiled. “Sounds great. I’ll meet you at the mall by the food court at 7 okay?”

“Sure thing hun.”

——

You arrived at the food court that was inside the mall, spotting Garcia. She walked over to you and gave you a hug. “Okay girly, we have to find something that screams sexy and will make Boy Genius crazy.”

“Let’s not get let him get too crazy okay?” you laughed.

The both of you headed into a shop and started to browse the lingerie.

“How about this one?” Garcia asked. It was a black and pink lacy piece, with bows on the hips, and one in the middle of the breast area.

“I’m not sure.. I don’t think it’ll look nice on me.” you replied.

She shook her head and put her arm around your shoulder. “Honey Bun, you will look good in anything. You gotta be confident okay?”

Garcia pulled you towards the dressing room and pushed you in. “Try it on and see how you like it.” she said, sticking the clothing piece in the dressing room.

Sighing, you grabbed it from her and tried it on. You turned around to look at yourself in the mirror and gasped. Surprisingly enough, the black and pink complimented your skin tone very well.

It showed off enough of your cleavage to make any guy go crazy. You blushed thinking about how Spencer would react to you in it. This definitely made you look sexy and confident.

——

You and Garcia walked towards the register with at least two different lingerie pieces. The black and pink lacy one and one where it was purple and and black. It was also lacy and it was in Reid’s favorite color.

After you paid, you two left the mall and began walking towards the parking lot. “Do you think Spencer will like these?” you asked softly.

Garcia nodded. “Definitely hun. They make you hot as fuck. Especially that purple one, it’s in his favorite color. He’d be crazy to not like it. You might end up causing Boy Genius to faint from how hot you’re gonna look.”

You laughed, “I hope not. That’d probably ruin the mood.”

The both of you share a laugh. “Okay, well I gotta get home. Spencer and I are having a Doctor Who marathon tonight.”

She hugged you, “Alright. I’ll see on Monday lovebug.”

You returned the hug and smiled, “See you. I’ll tell you how it goes.”

“You better!” she yelled as she started to walk towards her car.

——

Opening the door to your shared apartment, you saw Spencer in the kitchen making dinner. “Hey babe, whatcha making?” you asked, hanging up your jacket and setting your keys on the counter.

He turned slightly to look at you and smiled, “I’m making spaghetti. Hope you’re hungry.”

“I’m starving.” you replied, walking over towards him and giving him a hug while he cooked.

Spencer let out a chuckle, “Hey you.”

“Hiya handsome.” you stood on your tiptoes and kissed his cheek.

“Can you believe that we’ll be dating for 11 months tomorrow?”

You smiled, “It’s crazy. It seems like just yesterday we started going out. Speaking of our anniversary, I have a big surprise for you tomorrow.”

His eyebrows raised in interest, “Oh really? I can’t wait to see it.” He leaned down and pressed a sweet kiss to your lips.

Returning the kiss, you could feel your heart beating fast. You were still so nervous. You hope that he’d like it.

A Guide for College Students: Too Much Freedom All At Once and How To Manage It

I’ve seen a lot of young students get dropped off at college and go insane with how much freedom they have just to burn out and not know how to handle it properly. In fact, I’ve seen a lot of kids not be able to get through school because irresponsible decisions. Here’s things you should and should not do with your freedom: 

DO your own laundry

DON’T let your room get super messy because your mom and dad don’t tell you to clean anymore

DO eat healthy and learn to grocery shop well

DON’T go and buy nothing but junk food and empty calorie foods that only taste good because the liberation of not being told what to eat is so amazing

DO stop yourself and ask, “just because I can, does it mean I should?”

DON’T do crazy stuff without thinking things through first. How will this affect my future? Is this choice going to be a good one in the long run? 

DO look at the examples and take lessons from the older students who made mistakes and wish they didn’t 

DON’T think, “haha, well, they were lame, that won’t happen to me because I’m invincible!” 

DO be realistic and know your limits

DON’T think you’re immune to the consequences you’ve been warned about. Pay heed to warnings. 

DO set a schedule and pace yourself

DON’T think it’s ok to cram a 5 page paper out in 2 hours before the deadline

DO have your priorities straight

DON’T go to that party when you have a paper due tomorrow 

DO set a curfew and a bedtime for yourself

DON’T stay out until 3 AM when you have a class at 8 AM

DO get up early and be to class 10-15 minutes before the start time

DON’T be 10 minutes late to class with starbucks in your hand

DO skip class if you’re sick unless there’s a strict attendance policy, then email your professor to see what they say

DON’T skip more than one class a semester if you can help it. Even if there aren’t attendance policies in place and/or it’s a massive class and the professor will never know, DON’T SKIP CLASSES. I missed 50% of the chemistry class lectures my second year because they were boring and *yawn* and instead of my usual A, I got a C. It was stupid. 

DO realize that those rules your parents put in place at home helped you

DON’T say, “SCREW EVERY RULE EVER! ANARCHY!” 

It is seriously so upsetting to think how much of my life this eating disorder has taken from me. The last 2 years at uni have been hell, I haven’t been able to make the friendships everyone else has. Everyone is talking about what they want to do after uni and having dreams/plans while I’m still stuck in this living hell of an ED, not able to cope when I “eat too much”. Having panic attacks, crying, isolating myself all because of my body/weight/food. It has taken everything from me, everything I ever wanted doesn’t seem important anymore. The only thing that matters is food, my weight and the amount of exercise I did each day, how fucking crazy does that sound? I want my passion, drive, motivation to succeed back. I want to make friends again and actually have/enjoy a social life, I want to enjoy food again and not freak out over how much I ate the day before or how much exercise I did/didn’t do.

I want to be free.

Mitsu's Top 10 Anime of 2014

Mitsu’s Anime Reviews: TOP 10 ANIME OF 2014

The following are anime of 2014 I found to be: AWESOME, REALLY WELL WRITTEN, ENJOYABLE, FUNNY, AND OVERALL INCREDIBLY RECOMMENDABLE TO ANYONE!

Due to a slower year, 2014 seemed to mosey and then just flash by! I had a busy year, but late summer and fall anime got kind of beaten in by this lack of interest. So this list is mildly bias because I just didn’t get to watch a whole lot of anime once the end of September rolled around. And when I went to check the shows of 2014, my jaw dropped because some of these shows felt like they started ages ago, I just couldn’t believe some of these were from this year!

So same as last year, 10 to 1, one is the best, but don’t count 10 as anything less than special, everything on this list is special to my heart and shows I hope you got to enjoy this year, or carry them with you on your anime new year’s resolution!

10- HAMATORA/ RE: HAMATORA

Hamatora explores a not too old story of people with super powers, given to them via some strange mutation or experimentation, or whatever, being treated differently by normal people or hunted for it. X-men is most famous for it, another anime title that may interest you along the same lines would be Towa no Quon from a few years ago. Hamatora is about a small detective agency that does everything from solve stalking crimes to theft, even being body guards or temps for people, anything to get money. As the group goes about their daily lives though, a dark secret begins looming over the city, murder of those with the powers, minimum holders, are happening at alarming rates.

The series is split in half and honestly, I’m trying to finish it right now, but it’s animation is fun and it’s filled to the brim with unique and memorable characters, definitely a great watch!

9-Sakura Trick

Representation in the media is important, as tumblr can attest to these last few days, and Sakura Trick was the representation I was looking forward to seeing all year. Yeah, a lot of people I ask about it call it “fanservice” but it’s not really, it hardly has much of that, although, when the kisses happen or the tatas jiggle, they do so for a while.

Sakura Trick is about two girls falling in love as they enter high school as the last freshman class ever. To commemorate this rare event, they share a kiss under the cherry tree petals in the classroom and begin to spiral into the wacky world of lesbian romance. It is CUTE, it is slice of life, it is romance, and god DAMN IT I could punch a wall it’s so damn nicely animated and colorful and AHHH I WANT TO MARRY YUU’S SISTER! *punches a wall hardcore* If you’re into yaoi or yuri, it’s niiiice, if you like comedy and slice of life, you won’t be disappointed, and if you just enjoy cute things, brush your teeth, cavities are on their way.

8- Tokyo Ghoul

From cute and sugary to dark, gory and OH GOD THE BLU-RAY. I actually left Tokyo Ghoul soooo low on the list because I have so much more praise for another anime further down the list, so hold your horses, I wasn’t disappointed enough in it to just toss it away from the pile.

Tokyo Ghoul is a world in which thee cannibalistic human (???I honestly don’t know if they could be considered humans, thus, cannibals) creatures called Ghouls, that take the form of humans, but actually see humans as a steak dinner walking down the street. This anime is vicious, brutal, and graphic as I’ll get out, but it did have that glimmer of humanity, the struggle of Kaneki “did nothing wrong” Ken trying to keep his sanity intact after a horrific incident leaves him with the organs of a ghoul inside him and his appetite for actual food out of the window, replaced instead by the horrific craving for human flesh. Most horrific, goriest thing I’ve ever seen? Nah. Better than some other anime I could name? Eehhh, yeah actually. It’s enjoyable, there’s some great characters, I’m personally in love with the designs they went through: not too boring and plain, but not out of this world crazy, but just enough for you to remember them.

7-Haikyuu!!

AHH SPORTS! Ya’ll might know in real life I actually do have an affinity for basketball and baseball but volleyball just leaves me “???” and it still kinda does, but I decided to watch Haikyuu for the chance to get educated and god damn it I don’t need another cute husband, get OUT OF HERE Noya!

Hinata Shoyo is IN LOVE with volleyball, he practically breathes it, but after a crushing defeat in his first ever competitive game by the King of the Court, he swears revenge, moves into high school with his head high and it turns out the King of the Court, Kageyama Tobio is his new team mate. I love shows that enforce friendship and team work, and Karasuno’s team is the most colorful cast of players I’ve ever seen. They also worked very hard to keep the style and over all atmosphere of the manga, especially the panel to animation conversions, which while I’m not going to give a prime example, it’s personally my favorite.

A sports anime should not just bring in fans of said sport, it should bring in new people, teach them, interest them, and let them enjjoy the characters, excitement, and yes, even the sport itself.

6-Sailor Moon Crystal

Hell, my name is Marisa and Sailor Moon was my gateway anime. Nah but really, this anime can be enjoyed on more merits than just the giant nostalgia goggles. I put it on here not only because it was a favorite of this year, but also because it deserves it. What people don’t seem to get about the whole Sailor Moon craze and the reincarnation with Crystal is that when Sailor Moon came to the US, it got neutered so much more than anyone can imagine. It was cut, it was in some aspects mistranslated, it was Americanized, and it changed MANY aspects about it to become more “kid friendly”. Just a few years ago, a god send arrived from the heavens, the retranslation and release of the Sailor Moon manga. It’s beautiful, has unseen art, all the names and places are 100% intact, and the anime, believe it or not, is almost /panel for panel the same/. Was it a ploy to sell more merch or a celebration of an anime that broke barriers around the world? I think both, but I’m okay with that. I got really annoyed about other people’s views about the anime because they kept their nostalgia goggles on all the time. “The animation is bad and different”, the animation is money saving and will be better for the blu-ray release, also the style is pretty close to the manga, while looking chic and stylist like newer anime. “The voices are all different, I hate it”, well, you might be thinking of the American voices you loved, but I guarantee you, the voices are almost all the same, especially Usagi.

People can’t put away something they love though, but I think we’re finally here, in the renaissance of anime. I only hope more shows can follow suit with new anime adaptations, new seasons, and especially remakes, I have a list miles long for it. Sailor Moon Crystal is a treat, and if you have been putting it off for the very reasons above, I’d like you to take a moment, take off your nostalgia goggles and throw them in the trash. We can treasure and appreciate the old, but a tune up never hurt anyone.

5-One Week Friends

Dear anime companies: It has come to my attention that you find that the greatest pleasure in life is making me cry. I don’t know what I did to you, I love the direction you’re taking with animation and story, but I swear to you, if I cry over one more god damned cartoon, I’m gonna remove my tear ducts, you are ruining me.

One Week Friends is a sob fest; I’ll give you that warning at least. It was very emotional and heartfelt, unique in atmosphere, anger inducing at times, just your typical shoujo drama, except not. I knew from the moment I saw the PV I was going to cry, and I still watched it, but my heart took a journey back in time and my heart went out to all those who have friends, who need friends, who want friends. Please watch this little gem, it’s very important that you do.

4-No Game No Life

Please for season two, please, please I beg you, you barely scratched the surface of Disboard, please give me more, I’ll do anything.

Ahem, sorry, just begging over here. No Game No Life was a surprise I wasn’t expecting coming into 2014. Interesting art style? Check! Fun asshole characters? Check! Interesting world and world building techniques? Check!  Piss in your face impossible physics and deus ex machina cheats? Check! This anime deserves a lot of attention. It’s comedy, when not sarcastic fanservice and a slap in the face of “it’s not incest but incest but we’re just kidding”, it’s smart, tricky, and downright devious. It’s designs for beasts we only get to see a quarter of? Freaking great. Just give me more, that’s all I ask, and you, you there! Yeah, go watch this anime, it’s about NEETs, so you can relate!

3-Chaika the Coffin Princess

WHOOOOO what an ending. I can’t believe my joke came true, I mean, I can, I’m really good at guessing plot twists, but JESUS that ending! Chaika really went all out in its second half, and I’m just so damn proud. If you didn’t watch Chaika already, it’s about a post-war, magic filled fantasy world and a cute little sugar coated Lolita girl searching for the dismembered remains of her father- a horrific dictator like emperor Wizard who, if he were ever to come back to this world, would probably end it, like that could happen though!

It’s got top notch animation, a really seriously great and original world. The characters and their interactions are worth every minute of the anime, and HEY who doesn’t love that cute face, Chaika is the best!

2-Space Dandy

Whoooooo I haven’t watched season two yet! But nah, really, Dandy was great. I expected no less of the show who’s creators resumes would make any animator probably piss their pants.  I’m not sure what more praise  I can give that I didn’t give in my review already, but it’s just that, Dandy is not really the end all anime, but it is up there with the greats. You can’t deny it’s prowess. Sure it’s a silly plot, but it sure is framed gorgeously with the hard work and talent animators at Bones put in. Like Sci-fi? Watch it. Like comedy? Watch it? Enjoy some tiddy? Watch it? Have any ounce of respect for Cowboy Bebop and Full Metal Alchemist? Go watch it already!!

1- Parasyte

You know how I mentioned I haven’t watched like any anime this season? It’s been a huge struggle catching up with old stuff, trying to watch sequels, and PARASYTE. Tokyo Ghoul was coolio, don’t get me wrong, but Parasyte took every little thing they did wrong and made it right. It’s ten times more graphic, really hits home on more fronts, is actually, in my opinion, less selfishly based in what is lost, and the character goes through a much more intense physical and mental change in a much better paced way. (TDLR: Keneki Ken is kind of a pussy about it and Shinichi is a lot more logical, has more to lose and takes it better). To me it had a better protagonist, a better antagonist, and felt a lot more interesting than downright “EDGY”.

Of the two, I’d take Parasyte any day. From an animation standpoint, nothing feels half assed, everything is on the table, the minute details in both Shinichi’s changes throughout the series and the designs of the Parasytes are really interesting. The smart talk gets mildly tedious, but the action is a lot more breath taking and captivating, going more for fluid movement, clever battle tactics, and less shock and awe of the blood to be spilt like Tokyo Ghoul does. It makes it less of a gore boner fest and more of something both tantalizing and enjoyable in a somewhat gory form.

A suppose it comes down to a matter of (better) tastes, but Parasyte comes out as the champion this year for me. I’m itching to watch more, it’s got me hooked and just in general is really well written and done. It might reflect on the time its manga originally came out, but this show waited just long enough to break the anime surface for a generation of great looks, a broader audience, and a story unique and awesome without becoming its own little joke.

I did a bad job at keeping up with anime and the review blog this year, but I really appreciate everyone who follows and gives stuff notes, really! I hope you all have a great holiday season and a happy new year! Let’s all watch lots of anime together in 2015! 

sometimes i get so disconnected from reality i can’t even tell you what time it is. i feel unreal. i feel like i don’t exist. i feel like absolutely nothing in the entire universe exists. i feel like in reality, there is no such thing as reality. we’re all just fragments of a puzzle that doesn’t even exist. we all add up to black holes without the physicality. do you even get what i’m saying? because i sure as hell know i don’t.

sometimes there’s emotions pent up so fucking far inside of me, and i want to be able to tell you these things, but because of my illness i physically cannot express it properly. i physically cannot find ways to be sad without laughing, or to be happy without looking blank. 

sometimes i feel things and see things that i know aren’t real, but does that stop me from scratching my skin to get bugs off of me? bugs that don’t even fucking exist? no, it doesn’t, because no matter what, i can still feel their goddamn legs brushing against me, no matter how much i know they’re not there, they’re always going to be there!

sometimes i think things i know can’t be true. c’mon, man, people aren’t actually following me! i’m not actually a god! my food isn’t actually poisoned! i know they’re not true, that’s totally crazy, it can’t be true! but hell, maybe they are true, aren’t they? maybe they are! so maybe i should watch my back and decide not to go out for literal weeks! maybe i should act otherworldly, in the chance that i am! maybe i should just skip all my meals, just to be safe!

when someone won’t get out of bed because of their depression, that’s valid! they can’t help it, that’s what the illness does to them! they’re valid, and we don’t consider them crazies for being this way!

but the fucking moment someone with psychosis acts out in a way you don’t find socially acceptable, the last thing we do validate their struggles! how on earth can we validate and understand something like that? the crazy illness, for crazy people? 

that’s the problem with all y’all - y’all wanna pick n choose which illnesses to support and which to ignore/invalidate. y’all support people with illnesses, but only the ones with convenient illnesses. after that, y’all don’t give a shit about sick people.

i’ve said this a million times before, and i’ll say it again. your advocacy should be all inclusive, or you’re not doing it right. you can’t pick and choose who to support. either you support ALL sick people with illnesses, or you stop pretending to give a fuck about sick people.

That is exactly why our lives suck. I mean, come on, we hunt monsters! What the hell? I mean, normal people, they see a monster, and they run. But not us ,no, no, no, we search out things that want to kill us. Or eat us! You know who does that? Crazy people! We are insane! You know, and then there’s the bad diner food and then the skeevy motel rooms and then the truck-stop waitress with the bizarre rash. I mean, who wants this life, Sam? Seriously? Do you actually like being stuck in a car with me eight hours a day, every single day? I don’t think so! I mean, I drive too fast. And I listen to the same five albums over and over and over again, and I sing along. I’m annoying, I know that. And you, you’re gassy! You eat half a burrito, and you get toxic! I mean,you know what? You can forget it. Stay away from me Sam, OK? Because I am done with it. I’m done with the monsters and the hellhounds and the ghost sickness and the damn apocalypse. I’m out. I’m done. Quit.

anonymous asked:

do you have any health tips? how to stay healthey/get healthy/mistakes people make etc?

Uhhhh 1. Not a doctor, and 2. nothing I say here should be taken seriously, but sure!

ARALLYN GIVES HEALTH TIPS

  1. Make sure it’s water! H2O is much more satisfying than H2O2.
  2. Don’t pet platypodes, at least if they’re male. They’ll venom-spike your butt.
  3. Heavy water will kill you if you drink it exclusively.
  4. Don’t offend the giraffes.
  5. Eat your kale! I don’t know why but people keep telling me that it’s “good for you”, so do that.
  6. Mostly don’t listen to people who tell you what’s “good for you”, cause humans are mostly dumb. If they’re a doctor they might not be as stupid, but if they’re trying to sell you something, you still might not want to listen to them.
  7. Try to keep the alcohol content in your blood under half of your total volume. I hear it’s essential to life.
  8. Don’t be an asshole. It can lead to being punched in the face. THAT’S not healthy.
  9. In the words of my grade 9 health teacher, “THE ANUS DOES NOT SELF-LUBRICATE” (no, really, that was her one consistent line throughout the semester)
  10. Remember that you need to eat and bathe when you get engrossed in video games. Also move! Moving is good for you.
  11. DON’T TRY TO LIVE ON PIZZA HUT FOOD. IT WILL MAKE YOU DEAD.

anonymous asked:

Can you do that prompt you reblogged with Gail and Holly babysitting Leo but Leo crushes on Holly the whole night and Gail is annoyed?

Hope this is okay :)

SMURF HANDS

The salt that Gail sprinkled on her potatoes was switched with sugar.

A piece of tape was placed over the IR sensor on her Xbox controller, making her think it was dead for several minutes before noticing the tape.

Her nightly herbal tea was tampered with, the contents of the bag laced with cayenne pepper.

An integral bolt on her desk chair in her corner of the home office she shared with Holly had been loosened, causing her to shriek with an honest to goodness ‘Jesus take the wheel’ moment. She barely caught herself before toppling to the floor.

She found a fake snake under her pillow. She definitely did NOT let out a girly yelp when she discovered it. Nope. Not Gail Peck.

The final straw was when someone put blue food coloring in the liquid soap dispenser in the bathroom.

“Blue, Holly!” Gail shrieked into her phone. “I have smurf hands!”
