how to get along with others


Hey guys! I’m so sorry I haven’t been around much lately… I don’t have any good excuses, either. It’s just the way it is for the time being.

I felt a bit ridiculous after I posted that sob story over the guy who I thought was ignoring me, but it turns out he wasn’t! He was on a train out west and was in an area for a long period of time which had poor service. Anyway, he’s so sweet and we’ve been emailing each other while he’s on a fishing boat in Alaska. I really can’t wait til he returns. We get along so well!

The thing is, he’s a recovering alcoholic. He’s only seven months younger than me, but he’s been through a lot in life. He did really poorly in high school and never went to college. Therefore, his grammer is really pour. (Did that grate on your eyes at all?? That’s how it feels to me.) I really like him. We’re so attracted to each other. But his emails are so poorly written and I know much of it is owed to his performance in school. However, he certainly doesn’t sound this way when he talks; he sounds perfectly fine and proper (for the most part). These facts together don’t make pursuing whatever we have going here a deal breaker for me. I never realized how important proper grammar was to me until now… It’s so crazy how much it can influence the partners we choose in life.

This guy is obviously trying very hard to turn his life around and I realize now how much of an influence I have on him in this regard. (Not to sound full of myself, either… It’s just an observation I’ve made…)

The poor grammar actually really bothered me at first, but now I’m tolerating it only because I really like him…

I’m asking for opinions: Do you all think poor grammar should be a deal breaker? Is it something I could gently talk to him in the future about how important it is to me and maybe help him out?


The Villareals lived on a separated island in Windenburg. It was clear that they needed enough land to build their house so a private island it was. At least, until the Bjergsen came along and they had to learn how to share. But, still, no other household in Windenburg had bigger land than the Villareals. Of course Jacques found it rather lonely with such a huge mansion with only one maid and Max in the house. Luna was moving out in a short time because she was getting married, and Hugo had found a stable work in Newcrest and opted to rent a house there. Jacques was sure, after Max finished his school, he would have to bear the horror of growing old alone.

Suddenly, a black BMW emerged. It stopped right in front of the main gate. And anybody would have shocked right now if they knew who was riding the car. Yes, the Lady Lyon herself. Without her usual chaufer. Sasaki scanned over the big mansion, muttering something under her breath while unfastening her seat belt. She shouldn’t really be doing this, coming over to her BoD’s house just to make sure they did what they were paid for.

“Some people just need to be pushed to the limit, eh, J?”

I want you to know that I love and respect you for your opinion about RPFS to which we have discussed. While we may not twin in that aspect, I believe that we still can get along and have wonderful conversations about all aspects of our lives. That's the beauty of someone's opinion. I fucking love you Mimi. And I respect the hell out of you.

That is the beauty of being able to respect the opinion of others. You know how I feel, I know how you feel, but I still love and respect you. Just because we disagree doesn’t mean I don’t love you and vice versa.

Sorry to bother you but I'm not caught up yet and I really just want to know before I get too attached... how is Sherlock ruined? Like what happened bc I'm already sad thinking about it, but I want to know what I'm getting into before I get too far into the series

Moftiss spent seven years showing us a relationship. A relationship between two men who are both incredible in their own right, but make magic when brought together. They took these men, who have always been a revolutionary pair, and they brought them out of the trappings of the Victorian era and into modern times. They built their relationship. Showed the depth of their love for each other. And guided them along, until this episode.

And then in this episode, they betrayed the trust of their viewers. In an episode that was supposed to be about love, in a series that was structured with the need for love at its core, they ignored it. They teased this relationship in front of us, dangled it like bait, even had Sherlock say “I love you” and have it turn out to be a cruel trick to a female character, never to be mentioned again. They took the journey that these two men went on, and never gave their the confirmation that it needed. They never gave it the clarity that it needed. Slapped on an ambiguous ending, and walked away.

I’m in quite a few fandoms. I have quite a few ships. I know that it doesn’t always pan out. But this is bigger than being disappointed because two people who I wanted to be together didn’t manage it. This is so much bigger than a stupid ship war.

It was the queerbait of the century. They knew what they were doing. They knew what their fanbase wanted to see, needed to see. And they used it to draw us in, engrossed us in their content, and then left us empty handed. 

Yes, there was terrible writing in this episode. Yes, it turned into a stupid rewrite of Saw and lacked any actual sense. But the real crime was using the love between two men to fool thousands of fans, thousands of queer viewers who are begging for scraps of representation, and then abandoning them.

a rose by any other name

january 15 | “how we were” – history/decay

Title: a rose by any other name
Fandom: Overwatch
Pairing: Gabriel Reyes (Reaper) / Jack Morrison (Soldier: 76)
Rating: T+
Warnings: language and brief violence
Word Count: 1,070 (excerpt)
Notes: As promised, an overview and excerpt from the fic I would have written for Day 1 of Reaper76 Week.


A pre-relationship, SEP-era fic where Gabriel snarls endearments at Jack in Spanish as if they were insults. It almost works, too. A story about how two idiots meet, punch each other in the face, and fall in love—not necessarily in that order.

Jack and Gabriel struggle to get along from day one of the program, constantly arguing and trying to one-up each other. This slowly develops into unresolved sexual tension as their relationship deepens. Gabriel ends up calling Jack all sorts of sappy, romantic things in Spanish while continuing to play it off as banter. Jack, unwilling to take an insult lying down, begins to learn Spanish and ends up very confused.

As payback, Jack decides to adopt the Spanish custom of greeting someone with a kiss on the cheek. He starts doing this to Gabriel, picking the most inconvenient moments he possibly can. When Gabriel finally snaps, Jack feigns innocence and asks, “Am I doing it wrong?”

I despise job applications that ask “personality” type questions

Like bitch, yes, of course I’m going to put something like “Yes, you need to work hard with your team mates when working on something” because you bet your ass I’m trying to get hired to actually pay my rent and shit.

Not to mention, there’s SO many possible alternative situations that can pop up with this shit. One of the questions I despise is “true or false - you should never help your coworker” (or something similar). 

Well that depends, how far along are they with their work? Is this coworker having serious crisis situation with themselves and/or other personal stresses? Do they have a history of slacking on the job? Jesus Christ.

I also hate it when they try to repeat questions. Like have a question pop up on page 1 and then the same thing pops up again on page 4. If I happen to have two different reactions, it’s because I happen to be in two different moods when I answer this same question.

hi! ive bed now stewing over this for months and I really need advice! im becoming a teacher and I seriously do not know what to do with my tumblr blog. I've posted selfies and talked about going to school for teaching, and I've posted about some adult topics and humor. what do I do with my blog when I get the job? should i delete all my selfies and NSFW posts and carry on? or should i delete it completely? im so worried about potential students or parents finding me!

I think you’ll be fine but if you’re really nervous I think deleting selfies is sufficient. I truly don’t think students even consider searching for their teachers on tumblr, and even if they do, how would they go about it? It’s not like facebook where you can just put in the person’s name and they pop up immediately along with a bunch of other identifying information. So I think refraining from using your full name would make finding you nearly impossible unless you actually made your blog public knowledge.

I don't understand why Sonic underground is so hated. Like I know the songs aren't the best but the story telling is pretty decent and I really like how they show the three of them growing and learning how to fight and get along with each other. I can only really complain about a few things with the plot like the Orical being the true villain since none of that mess would have happened if he kept his mouth such .

I can understand, even if I don’t hate it. And it’s not just a matter of the songs or the fact that their quality was pretty lousy a lot of the time, to say nothing of the fact that many of those songs were really intrusive and badly woven into the plot. 

Firstly, the premise of this series is radically, radically different to anything else that had ever come before in Sonic or has ever been done since. While Robotnik being in charge and Sonic resisting was nothing new, him being a prince, with two siblings, with a meddalion that could turn into a laser blasting guitar, and being part of a prophecy? It’s an incredibly out there premise for anything, let alone a Sonic show. 

Secondly the fact that Tails, who had been in every adaptation before then, never showed up was another blow against it. Sonic and Tails was pretty much Sonic Law at the time, and violating it was another thing that soured people. While Knuckles showing up later was nice, it wasn’t enough to erase the absence of someone who was regarded as essential to Sonic. 

Then there was the cheap quality of the animation and the fact that many, many of the designs were either incredibly weird, ugly, or both. While previous adaptations were not exactly adherant to the Sonic aesthetic, this was taken to an incredibly jarring extreme, particularly since this Mobius seemed to be comprised as much by aliens as it was by anthropomorphic creatures. 

SImilarly, the prophecy itself and Aleena’s continued evasion of her children rubbed many people the wrong way. Even going beyond the fact that the Oracle all but set the events of the series in motion while allowing Robotnik to live, the fact that this plot never seemed to go anywhere was frustrating. There’s only so long you can do a ‘search for’ plot before the status quo starts to get monotonous, and the fact that after 40 episodes they were no closer to finding Aleena than they were when they started could get grating. 

Simiarly, the tone of this series could be very uneven- while the overarching plot was fairly serious, there was still this urge to insert a wackier kind of humor that would often be at odds with the premise of the series and create an uncertain middle ground. You’d just as often get an episode about Sonic and co trying to take down a weapon as you would have things like Robotnik scheming to create a resort at the expense of the inhabitants of an island…. it bounces between these extremes so much that it doesn’t really settle on either and as such, the writing quality suffers for it. Nor does it help that a lot of the times, moments that were meant to be more emotionally charged or dramatic were just plain badly executed. The overall unevenenss of the tone would be another strike against it in the eyes of many. 

Sonic Underground is a very, very strange series on its own and even stranger chapter in the life of the Sonic franchise. It is not without it’s own merits, but there’s enough going on with it that is just so out there and badly handled, it’s not all that surprising that people have less than fond memories of it, even if the hate it attracts is a tad overblown. 

How it all began...

In September 2013, I was anticipating turning 40. I wasn’t sure if I was ready to be “middle aged”, but weather I was ready or not it was going to happen. At the time I was in a very dysfunctional relationship with my child’s father. We never married but we stayed together off and on for 17 years. We had grown apart, couldn’t get along with each other to save our lives. We hadn’t had sex in almost two years and I was sleeping in my daughters room. After staying unhappily for so long I decided that enough was enough. I needed to stop sacrificing my happiness!

I had a conversation with my children who were 21 and 16 at the time and explained that I needed to get out of this toxic relationship. They were old enough to understand and my daughter took it pretty hard. We packed up and moved that summer and my life took a wild turn as soon as I found myself again.

I always had heard stories about women in their 40’s and their hormones. I never imagined I would one day be one of those stories. I joined the gym, started losing weight and getting my “groove” back. Social media has made this so called “dating world” a lot easier than it used to be. Instagram, Facebook, Tinder and Twitter have changed the way we meet people. I opened an Instagram page where I quickly racked up about 1000 followers. Young men were sending me messages all day long trying to finesse me and “show me they know how to treat an older woman”. I wasn’t interested much, what could a 22 year old boy possibly know about what a woman in her 40’s needs? It was flattering to say the least but I just ignored the messages and continued my single life. </p>

<p>In the spring I had a girls trip to Las Vegas planned with some of my girlfriends who were all married. This trip was not only amazingly fun but it would be the start to my “cougar” status. Vegas is the city of sins and I surely loved every moment in sin that Easter weekend. My girlfriends know I’m already and outgoing, fun free spirit. I’m not sure if they knew that my hormones were raging and I was on the prowl. I don’t think I even knew this, but by Sunday evening we all had figured it out. Alcohol, sex and young hot black men was on the menu and I was starving! </p>

<p>Yes I said black men, I love me some chocolate men. I suppose this is where I should tell you a little about who I am…</p>

<p>I was born and raised in California. My heritage includes some German, Scottish and Portuguese. I have been attracted to black men since the tender age of 14. I have only ever been with one white man my entire life. Both of my children are mixed. Now I know some of you may think I like black men cause they have “huge dicks”, and yes SOME of them do. But it’s not the reason I’m attracted to them. It’s my preference, I enjoy their heritage and their persona. There is something about a sexy man who’s muscular and dark skin that’s breathtaking to me. I will never “go back” as the old saying goes. I am currently 42 and still living in California. I will not disclose my identity in this blog for the sake of my children and family. I’m in no way a professional writer or blogger, I am just going to let you in on my life over 40 for the last two years. I have a potty mouth and most of the time no filter so if you’re a prude or a conservative person this blog won’t be for you! I will continue my Vegas adventure on the next entry…I hope you enjoy my adventures, let’s call them that its sounds so much more exciting! ♥️

“…I’m already frustrated and disappointed as it is, okay?  I get that that grey face was probably just tryin’ to be helpful is some sorta messed up way, but it just wasn’t.  It’s one thing if I’m not possessing the doll an’ trying to eat ghost food.  It’s a whole ‘nother ballpark when I am, along with a bunch of other things.  How long am I gonna be struggling?  When will I finally get things right?

On wikipedia, there are 59 listed films with trans women in them.

9 are documentaries. 14 others are international films/movies (of which I’ve only seen ‘Ma vie en rose’, ‘The Skin I Live In’, and ‘A Soap’).

Of the 39 remaining (the 36 + 3 intl films I’ve seen), the following are neutral or better trans representation:

Tangerine (2015)

Gun Hill Road (2011) (I’d have it closer to neutral more than anything, because it gets a bunch of things right, but the execution in other areas along with the last bits are…sketchy)

Boy Meets Girl (2014), (some trans women like and felt was a good film, but was created by a chaser, and is still a little creepily shot in spots, so I’d have this as neutral more than anything).

Wow, three whole films, and two could be argued as more harmful than positive

If anyone reading is envious of how often trans women are in movies or on TV, then they should at least recognize that the vast, vast majority of our rep is literally harmful and we’d literally be better off without most of it.

i'm hoping you guys would do a fluffy mark scenario! You only have one (which is so great it's my fav) so if you get a chance, it'd be cool if you could do a high school au , it'd be cute right? 😊

Yeah, I agree! The idea of Mark in high school is very popular

Someone else before even suggested a high school story where the protagonist be ‘hearing-impaired’ [which can be interpreted many different ways] [I’m not sure how they could get along if Mark doesn’t sign and the reader cannot hear tho (perhaps they didn’t mean completely impaired)]
But I thought it was a unique idea that would stand out from other stories^^

I still can’t believe all this happened 1 year ago.


Every new crazy step or dance, Victor just follows.

He actually plays along Yuuri’s crazy doings.


LOOK AT THEIR HANDS, HOW PERSONAL SPACE DOES NOT EXIST IN THEIR WORLD, AND I REPEAT ALL THIS HAPPENED A YEAR AGO. This Victor has yet to experience all of what we’ve seen happened, but it seems their contact just comes naturally.

THEY LOOK SO COMFORTABLE WITH ONE ANOTHER, SMILING LIKE THEY’RE LOOKING AT THEIR WHOLE WORLD. And I get the reason’s behind Yuuri’s smile, but Victor, this might have been the first time he’s interact with the other boy, and just look at his smile.

People asking Victor his plans after he won the grand prix, HE ALREADY HAD IN MIND WHAT HE WANTED TO DO.


How to Read Your Birth Chart

The Sun: The Sun speaks about your ego, the ‘I Am’, what drives you to to be who you are and how you identify yourself. In other words, your sun sign reflects who you are all the time, regardless of who you’re with or what you’re doing.

The Moon: The moon speaks about your emotional self and what we need to feel secure, safe and nurtured. We go to our moon when we need to restore ourselves. The moon sign tends to be the ruling force over your decision-making.

The Ascendant/Rising Sign: This sign represents how others see you as. When we first meet someone, we’re likely to meet their rising sign. The ascendant sign changes from hour to hour so try to be as accurate as possible when naming your birth time.

The Descendant Sign: The descendant sign shows the type of people you are the most attracted by, you easily get along well with and you are most likely to start a love relationship with.

The Inner Planets: The inner planets include Mercury, Venus and Mars. They can describe core personality traits, needs and desires. Mercury rules your mind and communication, Venus rules your love life, and Mars rules your actions and overall energy.

The Outer Planets: The outer planets are Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. They reflect what will make your life special. Jupiter rules luck and progress, Saturn rules your fears and self discipline, Uranus rules change, Neptune rules dreams and how you heal, and Pluto rules your power and transformation. The placements can suggest what you have to look forward to these areas.
