i can never remember the difference

I just have to say, I love Daisy Ridley so much!  I admire her because she is talented, kind, and incredibly positive.  I love how passionate she is about the role of Rey and Star Wars in general.  I love that she promotes the movie in funny videos and connects with her fans.  I love that she acknowledges Reylo and has liked Reylo fanarts on social media in the past.

What I love most is seeing a woman who has serious illnesses that only affect women starring in a lead action role.  PCOS and Endometriosis are no joke…they can be incredibly painful, exhausting, and can cause an imbalance of hormones which can affect your physical and mental health.  If you have never experienced it, you can’t understand the toll it can take on your body.  Women have different experiences with PCOS and Endometriosis, different symptoms can occur in one woman that does not in another.   

I remember reading an article about Daisy having to eat so much of the bread Rey eats in that one scene in the movie.  She stated how exhausted she felt after eating so much of the bread which is an effect of the PCOS.  People with PCOS tend to produce too much insulin which in turn causes extreme exhaustion.  I’m not talking about I’m tired and I could use a nap, I’m talking about I could stay in bed and sleep for days and still feel exhausted.

It is amazing watching Daisy overcome both of these illnesses and rock the role of Rey, which is intense both physically and mentally.  I appreciate her candidness about her illnesses in the past, it has helped her fans who have to deal with these illnesses greatly.  

Daisy, you rock and I love you!  Thank you for being an amazing role model and inspiration to women everywhere including us who have PCOS.

hi! I wonder if you have any advice for alexithymia concerning bodily functions like feeling hunger? When I have low blood sugar I get so painfully grumpy and flat out mean and it makes me feel so weak in my body, im like a different person completely. This comes super suddenly to me because i cant identify the feelings of hunger.. ive been trying SO hard remembering to ask myself "am i feeling hungry?" like all the time, but i can NEVER identify it. What should I do? im suffering so much lol

As a person with ridiculously bad perception of hunger, my advice is to set reminders to eat regularly. I made a rule for myself that I need to eat something every four hours, so if I look at the clock and see it’s been four hours since I last ate, I know it’s time regardless of how I feel. I have good time perception so I can remember to look at the clock, but if you don’t you can use reminders on your phone, or even make an eating schedule and put it somewhere visible, like on the fridge.

Also carry around small snacks with you - or put them on your desk, near your bed, on the kitchen table, etc. Make them visible. That way if you are feeling hungry but can’t interpret it yet your subconscious brain might prompt you to grab a snack anyway. Another way is to pay attention to your other sensations, and every time you feel something is off, think back to when you last ate. For example if I get more dizzy than usual I might suddenly remember I forgot to eat breakfast. But that’s more tricky.

i've always thought like 'oh sana is cute she is just cute a cute girl' ya know? but recently (and specially after this partition performance) i came to the sudden realization that she is actually so goddamn sexy and now idk what to do my whole world flipped upside down what is happening honestly

omg yes yes yes Sana’s a very mysterious girl actually like everyone thinks she’s this cute, silly, sweet, clumsy girl but may I remind you that in sixteen she was the only one to think to do something way different in their first challenge to set herself apart from the rest 👀 also she’s been hiding her crazy sexy dance skills I mean does anyone remember Heartburn because I do 👀 you would never think it but Sana could probably fit the “looks like a cinnamon roll but can actually kill you” category 👀

Wait, people seriously doubt the assumption that Victor can’t speak Japanese?

Honestly, I’m baffled that people find it so hard to believe the likely possibility that a Russian man who had never ever anything to do with Japan can’t speak the language.

But alright, if you’re one of those people (or if you just want to read a detailed explanation supported by scenes from the anime), let this be a “Victor and Yuuri actually communicate in English” Masterpost.

Hopefully by the end, we’ll all be able to laugh at this scene. (And maybe even stop rejecting the one logical and realistic aspect of you know, communication between people from different countries.)

I shall see you under the cut.

Honestly my favourite thing about the new magnus chase book is that it shows how much rick riordan has listened. He listened to people’s complaints about lack of representation, and attempted to rectify it in hoo with a largely poc main cast and an lgbt character. And then he listened to people’s complaints about the way he was representing his characters (the main one I remember is that nico never actually says he’s gay, in fact the word is never used), and he fixed that in toa and now mcga with apollo being very open about his attraction to different genders and then alex stating outright that s/he is transgender and genderfluid (please dear god let everyone remember that alex doesn’t use they/them pronouns).

And honestly, more than that, he’s gone above and beyond what anyone asked him to. You can tell he’s done his research, and he’s done it well. In hot (I’m not calling it thot) alone he touches on so many subjects like police violence, racism, lgbt homelessness, religion, and he does it all so respectfully and thoughtfully that honestly, from my position, I can’t find any fault.

Rick Riordan heard what people had to say about his books, and he sat down, listened, took notes, aced his test, and then did an extra credit assignment no one even asked him to just because he wants to learn. And honestly it just feels….so refreshing.

tips & tricks & i’ve learned in 21 years as a human girl who has adhd

some of these i’ve learned on my own, or from family/friends, or reddit/tumblr/pintrest/facebook. but i’ve compiled a list that has helped me remain focused, organized, and not having my mind go all over the place. some of them are just good to know.

1. don’t put it down, put it away (helps immensely with clutter)

2. use a planner for everything, not just school (i use an actual planner because writing it down actually helps me remember it better, but an app can work too)

3. color code class materials, use a different color for each subject (i’m a nursing student and i’m always running around like crazy, my binders, folders, and notebooks for each class each have their own color. ex: bio=green, chem=blue, psych=pink. that way if i’m in a rush, i never grab the wrong stuff.)

4. rewriting class notes, memos, important dates, & anything else worth remembering helps to engrain it in your mind 

5. meal prepping twice every week helps to save time & money & also helps to keep your meals nice and healthy (it also helps me remember to eat because sometimes i have a hard time doing so since my vyvanse suppresses my appetite. it also helps to eat before i take my meds because then i have a more normal appetite and i’m not cranky. i’m also someone who would rather just not eat because i get stressed if i have to cook something, so having something all set and ready to go for each meal is such a huge stress relief)

6. do some sort of exercise for 30 minutes at least 4 times a week because it gets rid of excess energy, helps you to focus, & look & feel great (i do 45 minutes of cardio every other day on the stair-stepper & i’ve just gotten really into weight lifting. cardio definitely helps me A LOT to not be so cranky or all over the place)

7. pick out and get your outfit for the next day, every single night (i pick out EVERYTHING from the actual clothes, to the underwear, socks, bra, shoes, & accessories. this helps because i also have a weird thing about how clothes fit over undergarments & i also have a weird thing about matching clothes with undergarments, socks, & shoes)

8. pack your backpack and whatever else you need the night before (i put all my class materials, snacks & drinks, chargers, gym clothes, etc in my bag every night before i go to bed so i don’t rush or forget anything in the morning)

9. have a bag full of essentials that you take everywhere (i have a purse that i keep my wallet, keys, a protein bar, a water, my iPad, a back up charger, pen, small notebook, planner, gum, & hand sanitizer that i take with me everywhere. everything has it’s own special pocket & i never lose track of the things i need)

10. make lists of “to’s” (to do, to remember, to buy)

11. go from room to room whenever you leave someplace to make sure you haven’t left anything behind 

12. use post-it notes in visible places as reminders

13. set aside one day per week to do stuff you need to get done (cleaning, schoolwork, chores, grocery shopping, etc)

14. have a “time out” for yourself every other day to relax and recharge (i set aside an hour or two every single day to read or watch a tv show or do something that doesn’t require too much thought or energy. i don’t answer calls or texts, and i try not to browse social media. this helps me relax and not feel overwhelmed throughout the day or the week)

15. set alarms for waking up, tasks, & cooking fro better time management (i use a great app called 30/30 thats a great task manager. it lets you set up a list with a set time for each task. the timer starts and you go about your task, once the time is up, it lets you know you should move onto your next task)

You wanna know the truth?” She laughed.
“Well the fucked up truth is that not everything happens for a reason. Sometimes people make the wrong decisions and they’re forced to live with them for the rest of their lives. And I know I should live with mine, because I mean what other choice do I have? You can’t turn back the clocks and redo things. You make a mistake and you pay the price, that’s the cold hard truth about life.
You can’t change a decision you’ve already made, wrong or right. But on the loneliest nights, I look up at the moon and I smile. Because although now we walk different paths, with different people and although I know that the years will pass and we will won’t be together; I’ll always remember that for a brief, fraction of a moment, against all the odds, our stars crossed. And that will always, always be enough for me.

I know that WE know that Lydia loves stiles but when he said "you don't have to", I'm just confused as to how he knew....her feelings weren't as obvious

1. they are emotional tethers (they can communicate through DIFFERENT DIMENSIONS let alone face to face)

2. just the fact that she tells him “i didn’t say it back implies that she wants to

3. “[stiles] knew, he paid attention to her, he remembered.”

“I sort of feel like that concept changes all the time.  When Tyler and I first started playing music together our idea of success would be a certain amount of people would show up at the Chick-Fil-A food court to buy tickets from us for our hometown concert. And if we sold more than we had on us at the time than that was a success. And then I remember the first time we ever sold out a venue in Columbus, Ohio, that was a huge success for us and we felt pretty excited about it. Our friends and family were there but more importantly, there were people that we’d never met before, and that was a strange feeling. Seeing everybody look at each other and sing the lyrics, not really having any idea how they got there or how they learned the songs, was a big success. Every step along the way is another success. I think success can be measured in a lot of different ways and can mean a lot of different things. But I will say, at the end of the day, if this band ended tomorrow and the music was able to have some kind of any impact on a person or save a person’s life then that’s the real success.”

-Josh Dun

I remember when I was fourteen, sipping on a mixture of liqueurs from various different cupboards from various different houses, sitting on some decaying swing set, with a friend I no longer call friend, a un-friend I no longer can see in front of me, but she was a mirror of me, but only draining, never gave anything.

Sitting on these swings we discussed life and love, things we knew nothing about, but we talked and compared and discussed. Reciting poems about it, like at school, but not as strictly. She always got the words wrong but I didn’t mind. When she finished I said that I didn’t believe in love, to spite her, I think. Although I had not at the time, ever been in love, so maybe I was speaking the truth. Her eyes already puffy from a story about a boy, she would say, don’t say that! Love is a beautiful thing!

I am 20 now, so it seems, it is written on the birthday card in front of me. And I mumble to myself, I don’t believe in love. And I look around, he’s not here, the whisky boy, but my family is. I say thank you, for the cake, for the presents, and I feel tears in my eyes. And in that moment I feel love, it is true, but most of the time love escapes me. Oh, how misery loves me. It’s like a prayer, but only just.

I have never been to a clothing swap that wasn’t dedicated to trans folks
We used to organize them in high school so we could discretely get clothing we were more comfortable in
We would all show up with bags of clothes that still fit us, but didn’t fit us anymore
We would all leave feeling more like ourselves in our wardrobe

Our parents wouldn’t get us what we wanted so we helped each other
It was us vs the world
The question “what pronouns do you use” was accompanied with “who can I use those around”
My teachers never knew my real name
Stephanie hid her dresses in the same place she hid her weed
This was how we lived

I remember waking up with Whitney and joking about how we don’t need to get out of bed just yet because we both have trans bladders of steel
I remember meeting Jack’s parents
Having to call him by a different name
A name I know haunts him
I remember visiting friends in hospitals after failed suicide attempts
Their roommates chosen based on a gender that isn’t even theirs

I remember everyone who came before us
I remember Sylvia Rivera
I remember Marsha P. Johnson
I remember Lucy Hicks Anderson
I remember Christine Jorgensen
I remember Venus Xtravaganza
I remember Leelah Alcorn
I remember
I remember
I remember

These people can not be forgotten
These heroes will not be forgotten
I remember

Thoughts about being an animation major

Don’t try to be like others. It won’t make you happy, I promise you.

Don’t be upset if you’re not at the ‘advanced’ level everyone else is at. They were you at one point. You’ll get there. It’s no rush.

Don’t beat yourself up if the things you like and produce don’t fit the norm of other students. Art is different for everyone and you’re no excuse.

Don’t be afraid to try new things. You might like it more than you realize. Collaborate whenever possible.

Make friends to make friends, not to network. Be you. Don’t be something you’re not to have a better network. It may be good at first but those relationships will never last.

Most importantly, focus on you. Have fun. Live and learn. Take time to love yourself. Remember what inspired you. Remember what makes you happy.

Draw everyday if you can.

You can do it. I believe in you.

I want to remember...

Summary: What if you wake up and can remember enough of what happened the night before to know that everything has changed, but still don’t know who made the first move? (just a little friends to lovers sexy times for your Saturday) AO3

She wakes up to the usual sounds of squealing brakes followed by impatient horn blasts, security gates rattling in their journey upwards, murmurs of cell phone calls and the occasional bark of a too small dog. The noises of the city around her never seem to change, even on a morning that feels like it should be different. She presses at the base of her neck to see if the skin there is raised, fingertips tracing the same pattern as his lips, his tongue, the coarse hairs of his chin. Scrunching her eyes ever more tightly closed, she tries to add clarity to images threatening to disappear as consciousness fights with the fog of drunken mistakes.

Was it a mistake the way his mouth felt against hers, the weight of his hands on her skin or the possessive feel of his fingers anchored in her hair. Did he not mean the words he breathed between her lips between soul deep kisses?

“Finally…I’ve always wanted…Emma…”

She knows the truth of hers.

“Me too…”

161108 RM’s Last Broadcast FC Post // Trans

Last Broadcast Rain.

Bangtan had their last broadcast. We had the last broadcast, and it’s raining.
It’s almost feels like the rain was waiting to come down.

Since I learned a bit of what loneliness is, or whenever it was I don’t really remember but, I’ve ended up really liking the rain. Even though no one would know, I would often do things like go around by myself chasing the rain without an umbrella. (Honestly, I still do sometimes.)

Rain is very similar to music. Depending on the background, the situation the expression changes and the nuance can be different. Sometimes you definitely feel the perfect sadness and sometimes it’s a complete opposite, and other times it’s purifying, rest, a bitter smile, and other such things.. But my likeness for the smell of rain is never changing. Maybe it’s because the dust is being cleaned down.

In the last few years, I’ve always wanted to write a song relating to rain (we do have ‘Rain’..but a version is that completely my own). Although I haven’t really thought it through, of the songs I like, a lot of them are about rain. Epik High hyungs’ Umbrella, Let it Rain, Younha noona’s Sound of Rain, X-Japan’s Endless Rain, FreeTEMPO’s Rain, Razah’s Rain, Teacher Kim HyunShik’s Like Rain Like Music, etc..it’s really a lot. That’s how much rain has gladly become someone’s muse.
And the world is a little bit more liveable thanks to the rain.

The contents we learned as a child from a science book - that fact that, the volume of Earth’s water is constant and it can become the sea, become the river, become the rain and so the Earth continues to spin - was so so fascinating. The idea that the rain droplets that are tapping against my window could be from the far Himalayan mountains. Ever mixing and being shared..I would think I too want to live like a rain droplet, but I also wonder what would happen if rain droplets understood loneliness.. It’s a bit sad. I keep going back and forth.

Anyways, Like the falling rain, a lot of things passed by like a panorama in one month. I still can’t believe, as much as I try, that we already had our last broadcast. I know it’s cliche but it really was like that this time. For you and me, it was a 4 weeks where the rain came down like none other before.

The world calls that rain ‘Korea’s Best Rainfall in Years’, ‘The First such and such Rain’, ‘_00mm’* and with words similar to these people will record and of course this is a very happy thing but, we can’t simply use such numbers to represent our rain. This is something just we know. Before this rain, there were a myriad of other rains that fell and in our eyes, in your eyes, whenever we’re standing on stage, and on my body rain is always falling. In every moment the floods and waves are collectively hitting.

In this moment I’m not at a faraway place, but I really like that I’m here with you guys mixing and falling together as rain droplets. And so I just really wanted to say that I didn’t want us to be remembered just by several numbers.

They say singers follow their song titles. As the song title says, this rain contains mine and all of your blood, sweat, and tears.

Listen carefully to the rain sounds right now!
What is it saying to you

P.S. Sorry of this was a bit cheesy. But since it’s the last broadcast! Here was my last broadcast thoughts.
