I genuinely hope you find happiness in England, and I hope the nhs can help you- free healthcare rocks :> <3
ME. FUCKING. TOO. this year has been a /catastrophe/ for me as someone chronically and mentally ill and not getting the healthcare ive needed…
man like the month i just spent in London w Sam was so good and it was so good FOR me…before i left i was so sick, i didnt think id be able to do ANYTHING while i was there…but it was amazing, being able to be with someone i really loved, who wanted to help me manage all my problems without any complaints (they went and bought a ton of food that i could eat before i even got there bc i have weirdly specific dietary needs lmao) and it was just. so nice. we were able to watch out for each other and we both benefitted from it so much. i was still sick, i still had pain and fatigue and anxiety but i also had THEM and they didnt hold any of my disability against me even once. and after a relationship where i was routinely manipulated as a result of the help i needed just to live with my illnesses, it was…world-changing.
and if i could get good health care ON TOP OF THAT boy oh boy we are in business i might actually be able to really focus on my art again and start living the life i WANT
This is out of nowhere?? but it makes me really happy how accepting you are of other ships despite not being a fan of them yourself!! We need more ppl like u in the fandom honestly..
shdgjakdalhsajkd thank you <3333 this really makes me happy hahaha
I’m gonna be 100% honest in my early days in the snk fandom I was a lot less accepting of other ships, would get bothered by them and what not…and boi I’m really glad that’s not the case anymore, even just for my own sake lol. It’s just…really healthier? like back then my emotional connection to EM was much stronger and I actually got some positive feels out of that, which has really dialed down compared to nowadays…but at the same time I don’t feel bad seeing ships I once considered notp’s anymore, I made lots of friends who highkey ship stuff I used to literally feel offended by…and having reached this much more neutral, accepting state of mind is probably my greatest achievement over the last year or so lmao. bc honestly spreading positivity is much better than having wank all over the place, for everyone involved, really.
If there is anyone who reads this that is as in love with the new King Arthur movie as I am can y'all just hit me up because I’ve just come out of seeing it a second time, in 3D this time, and I’m actually buzzing off of how much I enjoyed it (it’s the first movie this year I’ve been into cinemas to see more than once)
But like, it’s gotten so many bad reviews and most of the people I know either didn’t like it or don’t want to see it and I have nobody to obsess over it with 😩
okok theres one part of elements i really liked but keep forgetting to talk about so ill post it b4 i forget again
but HEYO finn and pb’s platonic relationship is. really very important to me holy shit, AT’s been pushing the ‘moving on’ from his crush thing for a couple of seasons now and i still go hell yeah every time its reinforced
LSP tries to break the fire elemental curse on finn by telling him to go to his happy place but his brain automatically goes to all this past romantic stuff with PB at first, its real bad because its still wrapped in flames but Then
finn crushes it, puts out the fire (or rage and anger/pain as the element represents here)
and he goes back to his real happy place, back to pajama wars (still a super fav ep!!) where all they did was hang out like best friends w no hint of romance whatsoever
it felt like a real throwback to Dont Look where finn’s “true perception” of PB wasn’t an infatuated crush but just one of his bros
my boy’s moved on and is learning and enjoying his friendships and im proud of him
speaking of being a massive ecology nerd, guess what season it is, folks!
That’s right, it’s FLEDGLING BIRD SEASON here in North America, which means it’s time for an annual reminder that most species of birds have almost no sense of smell. Someone probably told you that if you touch a baby bird, the mother will smell you on it and reject her baby. THAT IS NOT THE CASE.
Pictured: a young Mourning Dove, after being rescued from the tender mercies of my dog, circa spring 2005. It’s a fledgling! Note how it has most of its feathers, but still looks a bit awkward and scruffy, and, being unable to properly fly, can be caught by an elderly husky or a child.
Hatchlings: IF it is covered in fluffy down (or partly naked) and cannot flutter successfully, it’s a hatchling, and has fallen from its nest prematurely. Look for the nest- if you find it and can reach it, return baby and then gtfo and let the parents return. If you can’t find the nest, or if you find it in pieces on the ground, use a small box lined with dryer lint or dog hair or similar fluff and attach as close as possible to where you found the bird or where you think the nest was. Return baby!!!!
Fledglings: If you spot a young bird covered with feathers on the ground, chances are it’s a fledgling (bird tween, can flutter) who is not doing well in flying 101, but it is probably NOT injured or sick. Hanging out on the ground is part of the learning to fly process! If it looks like it’s in immediate danger (i.e. of being run over, stepped on, or eaten by a cat or dog), the best thing you can do for it is to gently scoop it up and place it in the branches of a nearby tree or shrub, and then LEAVE. The parents are likely nearby, and will return once the coast is clear of humans/predators. If it flutter-hops away from you and you can’t catch it, then don’t worry! It just successfully avoided a predator (you), and therefore can probably continue to do so.
DON’T DON’T DON’T: Try to feed it, bring it into your house or car, or take it to your local vet or animal shelter.
IF it IS actually for-real injured, you can catch it and contact a local wildlife rehabilitation professional (and then listen to whatever they tell you), but keep in mind that they get a LOT of fledgling birds, and those birds have a pretty high mortality rate. They may tell you that there is nothing you or they can do but allow nature to take its course, and that’s hard, but important to hear and respect.
the tragic unrequited love story of julian dahl: a year and a half spent wooing his crush via likes and comments, finally he had the perfect plan: casually join the same club as him, maybe do a “love exercise” together… only for some other stalker to sweep in.
