i do have a lot of feelings though

Hi Dr! I love your blog so much and really admire you as a person (and vet obviously). I was hoping you could post another story sometime, it feels like it's been a little while since there's been one and you're really such a great storyteller. Thanks in advance if you do! Regardless, here's to hoping dentals avoid your practice and that you get to have more cute than sad moments.

I hope I can too, and it has been a while. I’ve kind of dropped the ball with a lot of things. I am trying to pick them all back up though.

You probably noticed the post schedule dropped from three a day to two a day and I haven’t had any vet stories or Fantasy Biology in ages. I feel terrible about it, but I haven’t had the energy or brain power to do either of those two things well, so I just haven’t done them. I’ve only been tackling ‘easy’ posts and barely keeping my head above water. Plus stuff that’s been happening in life that has been Not Fun.

I especially feel bad about not delivering on my Patreon promises, but I want to get back to where I should be soon.

I let the blog become overwhelming, and I shouldn’t have. Honestly I’m not even sure what I’m doing with it. I want to do more, and to do better, but I’m not sure what or how. But rest assured I’m not out of stories to tell.

Weigh in week 2

Last week’s weight: 202lbs

This week’s weight: 202lbs


Lost the week: 0

Lost total: 4lbs


Even though I walked over my step goal every day and cut back on eating, I still didn’t lose weight this week. But I have gotten a lot of people telling me I look smaller. I don’t see it but they do say I shouldn’t rely on a scale. It should be how I feel. And I feel great!

Hmm unprompted but what are your thoughts on The Answer! I feel like The Answer kinda failed as a love story for Garnet because of how short it feels and the whole "It was a stylistic choice meant to be akin to Disney" or "It was a montage" thing doesn't work cause those are kinda poor choices when you think about what story they were going for + Garnets character in general but was enjoyable nevertheless

it’s one of my favorite episodes actually! But it’s not perfect. 

Though my biggest issue isn’t how their first fusion kinda messes with canon because if we’re being real, a lot of shows do this.

I just think for an episode about newfound love, it was pretty disappointing.

this got pretty long so my thoughts are undercut

Princess Principal season 2?

The finale didn’t seem complete (though it was a great episode), there’s a lot of things that still need to get settled down. 

When the series started and they didn’t announce the number of episodes until way later in the series, I had a feeling it would have 20+ episodes, but now I believe they’ll just go with a season 2.

What do you guys think?

Not so much a submission, just some thoughts. With the discovery of the term Demisexual, I finally feel as though I have found a tag or description that fits me. However, I guess a lot of the hate I’ve been seeing towards Demis online lately about how we’re not real has me feeling invalid and fake. It is awful, and it really makes a lot of my insecurities about this kind of stuff act up. Wish I could just feel… real.

I’m not sure if anyone really cares but I just wanna say that I’m really kind of struggling with with this au. Not in terms of ideas or creating it. It’s more to do with the fact that I think it’s really shit, like I feel I’m creating something really boring. I’ll see other people creating au’s that are so interesting and good and it really makes me take a look at mine and then I feel like I’m not as creative as I thought I was. If that makes sense?? I’m not saying it’s shit because it doesn’t get enough support or anything because you guys have been hella supportive and I’m so thankful💞 but I say it because I’m truly not that satisfied with my work so I may apologise a lot for it. Don’t panic though, if you do like my au, I’m not ending it all of a sudden, I just wanted to inform you that if I apologise quite a lot it’s because I’m not 100% sure that it’s good. But yeah. I’ll probably upload part 16 tonight even though once again, it’ll be boring. Thanks for sticking with it and hopefully I can create better au’s in the future💛🌻❤️

Hi folks,

just a quick note to apologise for not updating 52 Pickup this weekend. I’ve not been well, so I never got round to doing the rewrites chapter 32 needs. Don’t worry, I should have it up by this coming weekend though. And I’m feeling a lot better today. 😊

So Teen Wolf is coming to an end today and even though I haven’t watched a full episode at all since season 5B, I still have a lot of feelings about it all and I’m definitely more emotional than I anticipated during the lead up this week! People that know me will be well aware that I watch a lot of tv shows but none have ever struck with me quite like Teen Wolf and none have brought me so much angst but also so much joy. I found Teen Wolf first when it started airing in Australia but before I could get into it, it was pulled from free-to-air tv and it wasn’t until season 3 was about to begin that I actually rediscovered it and fell head over heels with a crooked-jawed angel named Scott McCall.

I’ve sat through endless poor quality livestreams, learned how to use photoshop so I could make my own gifs and edits, filled my iTunes with Scallison playlists, slaved over fanvids, written several fanfictions (including TMD which ended up at 140k words long whaaaat) and made so many incredible and dear friends because of the show. Teen Wolf, as problematic and frustrating as it’s been, has been one of the best shows because of all it has given me. Special shoutouts to @chlobenet@deutches and @roan-kom-azgeda who i literally need to talk to basically every day otherwise I slowly lose my mind! 

Anyway enough sappiness enjoy the photo above of the moment I died and went to heaven back in 2014 because Crystal Reed smiled at me and towered above me like some gorgeous goddess while I tried not to cry. Goodbye Teen Wolf! You’ve been weird and you’ve been swell :)

If you're still doing head cannons, do you have any for trans Jewish Thad?

  • thad doesn’t know What they are but they’re not a boy and they’re definitely not a girl so what gives
  • bart’s a boy to thad’s knowledge so they’re just like I Guess I’ll Be A Boy Too
  • but then when they take bart’s place helen and max both use they/them pronouns for bart and thad is ?? but it….feels really nice…..they like them a lot……so maybe even though it’s confusing it’s not a bad thing
  • and then helen is like bart no it’s shabbat you’re coming with me to synagogue we go every other week and sometimes every two weeks remember?
  • this is something thad knows bart does so that’s not that hard but then they realize that if bart is jewish they are too
  • and…that’s kind of weird.
  • because they’re not sure if they believe in anything and they’re pretty sure you have to believe in something to be jewish
  • except…it turns out you don’t? and they…they really like this idea, that bad people and good people are the same. they don’t understand why someone would do random acts of kindness, it just doesn’t make sense, but…
  • maybe they could learn?

Something happened 63 years ago that’s haunted me my entire life. I’ve never told anyone about it—until now

Story by reddit user  Sergeant_Darwin

It’s official: I’m an old man.

For the last couple years, I’ve comforted myself by saying I’m in my “early 70s,” but math is simple and unforgiving. Today is my 75th birthday, and God, the years do fly.

I’m not here for your well wishes; this is hardly a milestone I’m excited about. I’m glad to still be here, of course, but I find I have less and less to live for with every passing year. My bones ache, my kids live far away, and the other side of my bed has been empty for just over eight months now. In fact, once I cast my vote against that goddamned Trump this November, I may have nothing to live for at all.

Harry Styles Charms Grammy Museum Crowd, Is a Nomination Next?

Ahead of a Sept. 20 show at Los Angeles’ Greek Theatre, Harry Styles took the stage at downtown L.A.’s Grammy Museum on Friday night (Sept. 15) for a Q&A conducted by writer and filmmaker Cameron Crowe. Styles, who released his self-titled debut in May, was joined by producer Jeff Bhasker for a lively, often laugh-out-loud discussion of how the album came together, Styles’ experience filming “Dunkirk” (“I was in the water way more than the movie suggests,” Styles cracked), and his views on the music industry.

And while the Grammy Awards weren’t mentioned specifically, the venue — as well as the presence of longtime Grammys producer Ken Ehrlich in the crowd — certainly brought to mind the possibility of a future nomination for what is arguably one of the strongest albums of the year. An understated post-interview performance of Styles’ gorgeous second single, “Two Ghosts,” featuring Bhasker on keyboards, drove the point home.

The story of how the music came together — written and recorded in a remote studio complex in Jamaica — has been told by this point, but Crowe dug deeper into the process, letting Styles and Bhasker expound on just how organic and, in the producer’s words, “authentic and viscerally honest” the project ended up being.

At the same time, said Styles, “it was the most fun I’ve ever had.” Partly because he started on the album without a label commitment (Styles would later sign to Columbia, home to One Direction), he felt unencumbered. “When we started the process, it didn’t feel like I was making any sort of commitment,” said Styles. “I didn’t feel any pressure.”

That freedom allowed songs like “Sign of the Times” to flow out of Styles, even as other tracks were still coming together. Bhasker described a moment in which Styles sat at the piano almost in a trance, coming up with the chord progression to what turned out to be his first single. “It was writing from this place of, ‘Let’s get an idea going, do something with it, and have fun,‘” said Bhasker. “And in 5 or 6 days, they had, like, 10 songs. … It was that immediate.”

Styles’ favorite track on the album is “From the Dining Table,” which he said is, “The one that makes me feel the most,” adding that, “it’s the most different than what I expected myself to write and it’s probably the most honest that I’ve been in a song as well.”

The album’s stylistic choices — what some deem as musical nods to classic rock acts like David Bowie and Pink Floyd — were also illuminated, with Styles explaining that his father listened to “a lot of Queen and Pink Floyd,” while his mother favored Norah Jones and Shania Twain. “I’m a huge Shania Twain fan,” said Styles (he later played a snippet of a Twain song on a kazoo, by request from an audience member).

Bhasker’s take is that if any “homage” is sensed, it was not intentional, though the record they ended up with was destined to sound the way it did. “We were not thinking about [influences] at all,” he said, noting that, in this era of ProTools and pop co-writes, “It couldn’t be more punk rock” to record an album the way those classic rock acts did.

Indeed, the sort of liberties Styles was afforded new artists rarely see, and for that, the singer credits the record company, run at the time of his signing by executive Rob Stringer, who has since ascended to CEO of Sony Music Entertainment. Said Styles: “We had signed with Columbia and I called Rob one day saying, ‘Hey, would you mind leaving me a alone for six months and I’ll call you when [the album is] finished?’ He said, ‘I want hear it when you’re excited to play it for me.’ … A lot of people get into this thing of, ‘It’s me versus the record label,’ and I feel so lucky to get to work with everyone at Columbia. The support from them allowed us to go do what we want, so I have to say thanks to them for letting it happen this way.”

Not to let the mood get too serious, though, Styles then encouraged all in attendance, which included journalists, television executives, and Grammy chapter members, to come to the Greek on Wednesday and experience these songs, the band, and the vibe, for themselves. “You’re all on the list,” Bhasker joked. Added Styles: “If anyone wants to come, Capitol Records said they would cover the cost.” Charge it to Niall Horan’s recoupable account?

anonymous asked:

"I made a quick icon for queer creators" if you wanna call aces lgbt fine i guess even though i disagree but why do you think they can reclaim q***r? the q slur is a slur that has been used explicitly against gay/bi/trans people. nobody has ever been called q***r for not feeling sexual attraction. like historically speaking that's just not something that has happened routinely (if at all).

This is what you basically just said: ‘You must be THIS oppressed to claim an identity.’

First off- I know a LOT of ace-spectrum people who have been not only been called ‘queer’ by oppressors but have also experienced sexuality-based oppression in the form of erasure, corrective rape, and coercive social conditioning. Just about every Ace I know finds themselves thinking ‘something is wrong with me’ because formative sex education does not include topics of non-attraction or sexual repulsion, and this lack of representation often leads to hazardous emotional issues as they grow up. I am literally talking about suicide. 

Your claim that they don’t belong in our community, even, actually is evidence that they deserve representation- simply because despite all the evidence that Aces experience sexuality-based violence and oppression, some of y'all can’t get your heads out of your asses to see that there’s fucking room for them. Every time I get someone hollering up my inbox about how 'aces aren’t queer’ I get about three dozen aces in chorus on how they’re queer as fuck. 

 Aces belong in the LGBTQIA community. Full stop. 

But let’s get to the real meat of this discussion.  I’m going to summarize my feelings on the matter of ‘queer’ being starred out like this. Because this shit has got to stop.

I’m gonna start off this part by saying that there are plenty of other people who have said this better than I have.

Almost all the words we use to describe ourselves come from a place of pain. Lesbian, dyke, and gay have all been used as slurs at one point in our history. Why are 'gay’ and 'lesbian’ acceptable labels, celebrated by our community, and the word 'queer’ is not? We reclaimed those, why can’t we reclaim this? If I can’t use 'queer’ because it used to be a slur, then you’re going to have to give up every word that has ever been used to describe us and start from scratch. 

Queer activism has historically been about taking the labels that have been put upon us and turning them into weapons. “I wasn’t recruited, I enlisted” was a classic slogan during a time that people were afraid to be near us, lest we 'recruit’ them into our unsavory lifestyle. Embracing a word used against us removes the pain it creates. Calling myself 'queer’ means that no one can use that word to hurt me. 

I will build my house with the stones thrown by those who seek to hurt me.

But let’s put history aside for the moment and talk about the future. As the study of gender and sexuality progresses, the definitions of terms become more gray and it benefits us to have a word that exemplifies the blurring of terms. I mean… am I really a lesbian if I’m genderfluid and experience the occasional attraction to people who are not female- even though I’ve only had relationships with women? And what about when I’m feeling masculine? Am I a lesbian then? Christ- what am I?

I’m fucking queer, friend-o. 

Queer is an incredibly useful term that encapsulates the vagueness of the relationship between gender and attraction. There are so many different terms in the LGBTQIA community that we often question which letter we are. 'Queer’ is a useful term for people whose intersectionality puts them in an indefinite area of identity. 

What better word to describe a person who does not fit than one synonymous with oddness? We gather together in our strangehoods and we are queered together. 

Up until the 2000’s, 'queer’ was a perfectly acceptable word to use in the community and was in fact used academically to describe the movement. The slogan was 'We’re here, we’re queer: get used to it.’ Queer as Folk. Queer Eye for the Straight Guy. It was THE WORD. Its use as a slur had been diminished to the point that very few people even equated the word with violence anymore- it was just the word that we used to describe ourselves. 

Don’t think I don’t see a correlation between the shunning of queerness and the rise of intersectionality. When we started seeing more gender nonconformists, more poc, people of religious inclinations, more variety of ability, of age, of mental state, variety of sexual activity and attraction. When we started seeing a rise in demand for representation, when we started calling for more diverse discussions, when we started calling out supremacy in our community. 

That was when I started seeing people rally against the word 'queer.’ Because it was these people, who were so radically not homogenous homosexuals, that were using the word loudly and proudly. And the LGBTQIA community can call itself as welcoming as it wants- but don’t think for a second that this wasn’t about gatekeeping. The battlecry of queerness just suddenly isn’t cool anymore, guys.

I’d be willing to believe that most people don’t see it that way. That they hear 'hey, 'queer’ is a slur and you shouldn’t use it’ and think that this isn’t just yet-another gatekeeping method. But that is where it comes from. It comes from not wanting a us to be proud of our ambiguity and our intersectionality. 

I’m not going to make anyone call themselves anything, but you can’t stop me from calling myself the one thing in a long, long time that fit so right in the seat of my soul. You cannot censor me. You cannot stop me. 

Just like you can’t stop Asexuals from reclaiming queerness. 

We’re here, we’re queer- and you can pry my queerness from my cold, dead, ace-loving, skyward fist.

Good Lord that pompadour!  That’s all, it just deserves its own post.

I loved his content, and while it’s painful to imagine that he could do what he’s been accused of, I’m glad that Polygon as a whole is looking into things. I hope that absolutely everyone involved is okay and safe. Here’s a reminder to everyone, though: It isn’t your fault, and enjoying his content doesn’t make you a bad person. I’ve heard a lot of people say that they feel disgusted for loving CGI, Car Boys, Touch the Skyrim, etc, but liking the content he contributed to does not mean you contributed to this. You couldn’t have known, and it isn’t your fault.

Bum’s diary

”Dear Diary! Today I found out that I have a boyfriend! ♥

“I was a little surprised but I guess Sangwoo forgot to tell me because we were so busy recently. 

“We don’t go out much, but even our love can’t stay locked up forever. Today we finally went on date! We even wore cute matching outfits~!

Sangwoo’s arms look good tied up behind his back like that. It makes all of his muscles bulge.I wonder if anyone would notice if I licked his shoulder?

“Dear diary, my boyfriend is so romantic! ♥ Even though I’m so useless he proclaimed our love in front of everybody.

And there is even more! But this is so embarrassing I don’t know how to write it down. We also… we k-kissed! Again.

“How did Sangwoo learn to do that with his tongue? I have a lot to learn too if I want to be a good boyfriend! This is the first time I’ve had a boyfriend after all. Love really does change how you see the world. It feels as if everyone is looking at us.

“Note to self: Get both of us longer shorts…

“I have to go now. This nosy man keeps asking me about Sangwoo. Next time I’ll tell you all about renovations we are doing in our house. Sangwoo has been painting the floor.

 “P.S.: My Sangwoo is so sweet when he’s being spontaneous. I want to suck his cock hold hands again soon!”

“Y/N?” Peter called into your empty house, after having let himself in.

He wasn’t surprised when there was no reply. You had told him you might be a little late to your study night, as you had an errand to run for your aunt.

Nonetheless, you’d reminded him where the key was and assured him to let himself in and take whatever food he wanted from the fridge (“But don’t eat it all, Parker! I know you and your appetite, and I refuse to allow a repeat of last November!”)

He smiled, remembering your scolding, and grabbed a juice from the fridge before heading to your room to wait.
