i really really really love this man

Don’t you just love a good rainstorm? We had one last night, and I love falling asleep to the sound of rain, but I also love waking up–especially in spring–after the rain.  Everything is so green and it feels like all of my flowers and plants have grown overnight.  I was intending to go into the office today, but it’s too beautiful and peaceful here for that.  I don’t have any meetings today, so nothing’s stopping me from working from home. :D

The last couple of nights, the husband has been talking about feeling restless at his job and wanting something different.  I know part of it is that they’re opening a new fab and as a manager, he has to do a lot (more) of boring paperwork/inspections/approvals and those are things he hates.  But, I think it’s also management in general. The husband loves engineering.  He loves it and he’s brilliant at it.  He does not love meetings/paperwork/talking too often with people.  He is good at those things, too, but who cares about that when you hate what you’re doing? 

Every time he brings it up, he then also has to talk about how happy he is in every other aspect of his life, “so who cares if I don’t love my job?” And, he has to note all of the things his job provides: excellent health coverage, a good salary, stability, etc.  *eye roll*  Look, I love the fact that my husband takes his role as a “provider” very seriously.  He’s great at it and I definitely appreciate it.  But, I keep trying to beat into his brain that WE DON’T NEED THAT MUCH.  I told him last night that he’s worried about being TOO good at it.  We could maintain our current lifestyle even if he took a fairly significant pay cut.  We don’t spend that much, and I’ve written several times before that we feel much happier and more comfortable living below our means.  The whole point of that is so no one feels trapped.  Obviously, it’s awesome that he feels happy in every other aspect of his life, but work is a BIG part of how most of us spend our days.  If there’s a chance he could be happy doing something different, he should at least look into it.  And, that’s what I told him (repeatedly…maybe one of these days it’ll sink in).  We have the goal/desire to retire early, and I know that a lower salary would mean saving less, but what’s the point in retiring early if you’ve been miserable for years leading up to that retirement!?  Goals are not set in stone!  If we work a few more years, then we work a few more years.  And, we won’t mind so much if we like the work!!!!  The man is stubborn.  Fortunately for him, so am I.  ;)  I’m going to make him see reason if it kills me! 

my algebra teacher is a 30 something year old lil guy whos about the same height as me (Short) and really loves weird math crosswords and also teaches english and reads hellboy comics in spanish for fun and honestly hes really cool and nice and one of the most likable teachers ive had for math and in general, i really enjoy and value him as an individual, but i also really want to kick his ass because i can sense his decade old stench of nerd imprinted on his awkward little man body. Just oh my god miller, why did you choose to teach math AND english at community college, what a fucking cryptid

Favorite Captain from anything Star Trek?

This is HARD!! Because I’m really a TOS girl - it’s what I watched as a kid. I really struggled to get into the other Star Trek series.

That said, I think all the captains have awesomeness.

TOS Kirk was brilliant, and made it look effortless.
Picard was a renaissance man - was there anything he couldn’t do? (I quite enjoyed what I’ve seen of this so far)
Janeway shares my love of coffee, and also as a woman captain proves we are capable of ANYTHING. (I’ve seen bits and pieces and enjoyed it)
Sisko … I really know nothing about, but have been assured he is a master tactician (Never saw a single episode of this show)
Archer is the reason the Prime Directive exists right? Also, Scott Bakula is dreamy. (I also never saw a single episode of Enterprise)
AOS Kirk is a different kind of brilliant than his TOS counterpart, and makes it look equally effortless. 

One of the things that I think is true about the captains I’m familiar with (so I assume it is so about the others as well) - they are as strong as their crews. Starfleet is made up of exceptional individuals.

just a lil rant; in Another Man harry said he wasn't really focusing on his music, but that turned out to be utter bullshit because we found out today he signed his record deal this past summer. when he would have done the interview. and i'm just so so angry that he's not said ANYTHING about the movie, this apparent album, and he's just going to be really successful with like no effort :/ i used to love him so much but recently things are just not adding up and he seems like a total wanker :(

but honestly it is interesting to think about the fact that like, i mean, he DID lie. but its interesting to think that hes been working on this for so long and had absolutely no intention of telling anyone, until this pretentious video. and then its similar to dunkirk, in that the band had to be still together (knowing they were going on hiatus, but still a band) while he started auditioning. and i remember someone said he auditioned like everyone else, so like did he even tell the other boys?
like lately, i dont think its a coincidence that, like you said, many people are noticing that things are adding up.

Isn’t it interesting how whenever Victor makes references to fairytales

like the Princess and the Frog

or indeed Sleeping Beauty

they are always references to stories where the main conflict is solved by a true love’s kiss?

I think Victor is trying to tell us something.


Climb, climb. Tower of beloved corpses.
