Confession #2,243

I’m in highschool and after my diagnosis (In sohpmore year) I pulled out of school. Now I do online school, but I want to go back for senior year (I’m a junior right now). I’m afraid I’ll regret not going. Plus, I like talking to people and really want to make new friends. But I’m also terrified. Now that I know my limitations, I’ll have to change what I do in school (I have EDS and POTS). We have a huge campus that consit of 2 seperate large buildings on opposite sides of the street. The main building has 2 floors. I know I’ll need a mobility aid but there’s multiple issues with that.

1) I don’t know what I’d need. I’ve used a cane, which helps, but after awhile it isn’t enough. I’m afraid a wheelchair wouldn’t be good (I think I’d hurt my arms. It’s ok when I have someone to push me, but I’d most likely be alone. I’d use a motor one, but then people would say it’s just because I’m overweight) and I can’t find any information about it.. I’m really confused.

2) I feel once I use a cane or chair or whatever I use, I’ll have to use it 24/7. Like if I want to just get up and get something, I have to use it or else people will think I’m faking.

3) people gossiping about how I’m just faking it.. It’s inevitable. I just don’t know what to expect

4) People saying I only use it because I’m fat and must be lazy

Outside of mobility problems, I’m also afraid I won’t be able to handle the work load. I can barely handle things at home. I’m also afraid not to have the same lunch as anyone I know which sounds dumb, but I’d already be so anxious, being alone would only make that 1000 times worse

I’m just so scared and don’t know who to talk to. (sorry for the long vent. tmi)

Hi there it’s me again 😁

I love sharing things about myself and this blog is quickly growing so I just want to say that I love meeting new people and I’m here to talk!

Feel free to ask me anything at any time or if you need advice or just wanna chat, shoot me a message 😊

Have a magical day! ✨ xx

anonymous asked:

My ex and I broke up and it really messed me up, I got desperate to get over her and ended up sleeping with other people. We started talking a few days ago and wanting to be honest I told her about it, now she's saying I'm not loyal and she could never be with me. I don't know what to do because I still love her..

You were broken up when you slept with other people. Lots of people tend to do that when they just get out of a relationship. That doesn’t mean that you aren’t loyal. Ignore her. Get over her. Move on. I wouldn’t do it by sleeping with others though. Focus on yourself. Find new hobbies. Find something new entirely to create new memories with. Hang out with good friends. Stuff like that

Dear Charlie,

Friday i’m gonna meet some cool new people and i’m very anxious. every time i hang out with someone i do something stupid and i overthink about what i did, even if it was just a word pronounced with a strange accent or because of the way i laugh, or anything else. i’d like to stop because i hate this part of myself and i want to improve. This isn’t a big problem but talking to you makes me feel “free” so here i am. Goodnight Charlie.

So I'm watching "The Cuba Libre Story" on Netflix

Why are all the exile testimonies from white Cuban men? All the Afro-Cuban testimonies are from people who fought with Castro! And there are literally only 3 and ALL men..

It’s also interesting because white people like to try to cut connections between white wealth and the wealth of European countries from slavery in the"New World"..

One of the white Cubans who fought with Castro said that Cuba would be nothing without Afro-Cubans.. he said Cuba would have no music, dance, culture, etc without Afro-Cubans.. sounds familiar doesn’t it..

I knew quite a few enslaved Africans were brought to Cuba but I didn’t know it was like 2 million.. damn..

Another interesting point was when they talked about the number of enslaved people VS the number of white Spaniard slave owners at the end of slavery..

I really want to hear more from afro-Cubans.. is there a documentary that talks about specifically their experiences during Cuba’s history?!!!

BTS React to their GF being insecure

Here is the BTS Version for those who wanted it :) School ends in two days no more Saturdays at school for a few weeks yay also I’ - Em m so hyped for the new NCT life oml - Em x

Jin: If you felt insecure about anything you would pretty much always tell Jin, he was just easy to talk to. “Don’t think negatively if you can y/n. Just remember you have a lot of people who think you’re great. You never need to worry, I will always be here for you, whatever you need.”

Originally posted by bwiseoks

Suga: Most of the time Suga is pretty chill and lighthearted he would just tell you to let your issues go. But if he noticed it was really bothering you it would definitely really bother him too. He wouldn’t always have the words to say to make you feel better but he would stay close to you whenever possible when you needed. He would just cuddle with you until you felt like you could leave the issues you had alone for a while.

Originally posted by syugakook

Hobi: He would reassure you that you are the best. “You are so pretty and funny y/n you’re my favourite person in the world, I am your number one cheerleader stay strong babe. When we face the world together everything will be okay.” He would sit with you and talk out the problems and always give you his support.

Namjoon: If he saw you were insecure about anything he would make his best effort to help in any way. “Why do you feel this way y/n it hurts me to see you upset. If you feel like this because of what anyone said I will fight them for you. I can be like your superman but even better looking.” He would always make you laugh.

Originally posted by sugmon

Jimin: I feel as though Jimin would be deeply upset if you felt this way, more so than the other boys. Your happiness was his happiness and if you felt sad about yourself he would be so upset and frustrated because he wouldn;t understand how such a beautiful human could feel so down. “Please explain what’s wrong y/n seeing you like this makes my chest ache.”

Originally posted by bwipsul

Taehyung: Taehyung would try to take your mind of your insecurities by doing lots of cute things. He wouldn’t know how to make it better so he would just try to make you happy by going for ice cream and staying with you all day when he could. “Be happy with me y/n don’t ever think you are anything less than the best you can be, which is pretty damn awesome.”

Originally posted by mvssmedia

Jungkook: If you ever felt insecure Jungkook would tell you all the things he liked about you to try and boost your self-esteem. He would use his great singing skills and sing softly to you whilst you sat together doing nothing but being there together. He would be the calming force of positive everyone needs in their lives.

I needed 30 years to understand that i just have to listen closely to my intuition . Since i do that very intensely i have those moments of enlightenment very often.
If it had to do with how i experienced people’s behavior or their presence i never was wrong with what i felt.
Of course things changed, i lost very old friends and it was hard because i had to put out topics no one ever wanted to talk about but i was also right even if i became disillusioned about my old friendships.
But…without even recognizing it as fast as it happened i found new friends, great friends, who confront me with honesty and emotions and deep conversations as i love it in human relationships.
I find it difficult to explain to you exactly how i want to but the one thing i need to say is:
Even if you are afraid of the things that maybe could change don’t hold down your feelings and intuition about someone or something.
These are signs that you are alive and they exist for leading you in your life. Feelings can be very unrealistic or over dramatic but the essence of it all is never wrong or at least it always has something to say. Even if it was just a reminder….
One thing i still regret about my past is that i not often enough followed my intuition.

I want to say hello to my new follows!

Sorry i’m bad at these!

But a lot of people have come to follow me here and have come to me with hellos and nice words and I want to thank you all for that! 

It’s nice to meet you all and feel free to come talk to me or ask about stuff! 

For the past year there’s been more and more people talking about Marcia Lucas and how important she was to Star Wars and how it’s because of her the series is what it is but

It also makes me sad because we talk about her like she’s dead but she’s still alive

After the divorce George didn’t just take Star Wars from her he took EVERYTHING from her

She won an Oscar for Best Editing for Star Wars and she hasn’t worked since the divorce.

He blacklisted her.

People she thought were her friends stopped talking to her

She dropped off the face of the planet.

Literally I wrote a little essay on her a few months ago and the only recent news about her was that there was a house in Southern California up for sale under her name

And I just think about how fucking unfair it is that this woman who made Star Wars no longer gets to be involved and the redemption arc for the new trilogy that I REALLY want is Marcia Lucas coming back to edit again.

i just want to choose something small every day to fall in love with. how often do i really just like… study the heck out of a sunbeam. learn a new word and find out how to use it, teach it to others. watch birds because birds are nice. find a new favorite color. to find out something about each person in my life to compliment them on that’s genuine and better than “you’re pretty,” i mean realizing they always get water for other people before they sit down at lunch or how neat their notes are or how they always have a good pun. i want to listen harder and talk a little less and say more important stuff. and i want to watch out for stuff to just obsess over like a cool cloud or a tree and just. learn stuff from people. ask more questions about how her hair is so silky and just. fall in love with everybody.

Dear RPers who have wanted to interact.

I feel like i need to address this because i find it’s an issue many people, especially newcomers, have in RP.

PLEASE. DO. NOT. BE. SHY. TO. SAY. HI.

There’s no reason to be anxious or hesitant if you want to talk to me. I will happily accept a random starter, or a random tag, or an inbox message! Even if we’ve never interacted or even acknowledged one another, i will still HAPPILY interact with you!

You’re not bothering me. You’re not annoying. You’re not making me uncomfortable. I LIKE to interact with new people, it’s very exciting and fun!

Please, PLEASE, don’t be hesitant when sending in ANYTHING. I’m having a lot more fun than your anxiety tells you!

PLEASE INCLUDE DISABLED PEOPLE IN YOUR ACTIVISM.

(note: I’m not gonna talk about Trump mocking Serge Kovaleski primarily b/c Kovaleski does not ID as disabled and does not want to be used as a political talking point. Which is fair.  yes, it was awful. no, you don’t get brownie points for agreeing with me that it was awful. Disabled people have evolved to have thick skin, and a politician mocking us is not new or unsurprising. this list will deal with policy and specific issues facing the broader disability, autistic, d/Deaf//HoH, and neurodivergent communities.)

(other note: I generally use adjective-first language but I probably also used person-first language in here somewhere. I personally prefer to use the former for myself but I respect that other people in this community use different language.)

-the federal site for IDEA has been taken down

-all mentions of disability rights have been deleted from the website

-betsy devos had no idea what the Individuals With Disabilities Education Act was when asked and stated that standards for accommodations in education should be left up to the state (this is a TERRIBLE idea)

-if Obamacare is repealed, we have the most to lose. Most of us will not be able to afford medical expertise or treatment to maintain a basic quality of life. Some of us will die.

-he called one of his books Crippled America. Unironically. Ugh. 

-the january 2017 unemployment rate for nondisabled civilians was 4.9. For disabled civilians, it was 11.0. These numbers do not reflect the number of disabled individuals who work inadequate part time jobs, who are institutionalized, or have given up looking for work.

-the US still has not signed the UN documents about the rights of People with Disabilities. 

-Justices like Justice Kennedy have historically been swing votes on cases involving disabilities. Justices like Scalia have not. Potential Supreme Court Justice Gorsuch has a very ugly disability rights record, which includes defending a college that fired a professor undergoing chemo when she requested to give her lectures over skype (there was a flu going around on campus and being there would put the staff member in danger due to her suppressed immune system)

-By the time he was elected, Donald Trump had already dealt with at least eight lawsuits concerning lack of basic accessibility (ramps, braille) on his properties

-the Supreme Court case legalizing the sterilization of potentially disabled people without their consent (Buck v. Bell) has never been overturned and has been cited as a legal precedence in a lower court as recently as 2001.

-the Judge Rotenburg Center is still using painful electric shocks on disabled students as punishment, despite the FDA advising them to stop more than two years ago.

-similarly, many disabled people are not  paid federal minimum wage b/c section 14c of the “Fair Labor Standards Act” is still on the books and so hundreds of thousands of disabled peoples’ wages are “proportional” to their productivity (compared to an abled worker). Goodwill is one of the most famous companies that exploits this loophole.

-the already gutted SSDI program is even more at risk-Trump has spoken about emulating the British reforms for their disability program. Off the top of my head, I can think of nine or ten different people who died as a result of the recent “fit to work” assessments and bedroom requirements in the UK.

-disabled people depend on the Department of Justice’s civil rights division to enforce the ADA and protect us from blatant discrimination. Trump has already proven that he does not care about the funding or effectiveness of the department, and is willing to destabilize it to forward his political goals. 

-Donald Trump is anti-vax and is complacent to that movement’s violent and intolerable rhetoric surrounding autistic and other neurodivergent individuals

-Sessions called disabled children protected by federal laws (like IDEA) “the single most irritating problem for teachers throughout America today”. In this same statement, he stated that he did not “remember hearing of gun shootings prior to 1975 when Congress began telling ten percent of our students [they] are not responsible” (the IDEA was passed in 1975, improving the way disabled children were treated at public schools)

-the new administration’s refusal to address fatal police brutality is also an issue of disability rights, given that around half of victims shot by police officers are disabled or neurodivergent. (like eric garner, who had asthma) 


In case this list didn’t clue you in: the disabled community is scared. We don’t know what to expect from the next four years, we still haven’t come close to equality, and we are usually left to fight our battles alone. That’s why I’m asking whoever reads this to stand with the disability community against ableism and against policies that will kill us. People have done a great job in the past few weeks of expressing solidarity with muslims, immigrants, refugees, latinx people, LGBT people, and black people. And, honestly, that’s great. Thank you and please keep doing it. But also be aware that disabled people are one of the most vulnerable demographics right now, and be aware that we’re also one of the most ignored. We are made invisible by the media and by society too easily. Please, you have to see us and you have to stand with us. 

Looking back on history, it’s impossible not to notice that people with disabilities don’t fare well in authoritarian regimes. Please help us make this time different.

Important - Please read

Hi everyone! I hope you’re having a good day!

So, as many of us know very well, anything you post on internet could be taken, in other words….STOLEN - for people who wants to get a piece of the cake by the easy way. This is not new for me since I’ve been dealing with stolen content since my Youtube Channel became “popular” in the Undertale community.

I always have to check channels  that are stealing my videos and claiming them as theirs, without credit, cropping my watermark or even placing another watermark over mine…I’ve been claiming the copyrights of my videos around 100 times since the first animation of Underverse I made there. And still counting.

Now, I’m not talking about this as the big deal. The BIG, DISGUSTING and of course UNFAIR thing I’m really talking about, is that I found a video of mine uploaded three days ago (of course stolen) but asking for help with A PATREON WITH THE SAME NAME OF MY PATREON, with the difference that this person added another word to “Jakeinimation” to obtain that account, to have money behind my back with MY WORK and maybe with other artists’ content.

So, I checked the link of that Patreon but It seems it was deleted. Anyway, I’ll make sure to the channel of this person will be deleted for using my videos and pretending to be me.

That’s a pretty upsetting situation because I can’t believe what some people are able to. And I don’t want people that really want to support the original artists could be fooled by them. So, if you see someone is using a patreon or paypal or any other platform for paying artists with a similar name of the original ones, be careful and check what kind of works are they promoting, as well if you notice someone is trying to make money with other’s work without permission or trying to obtain more followers.

trans; @hobuing | do not repost

Okay so I know that episode 9 is right around the corner but I just want to talk about one more thing from episode 8. Specifically, this line:

I feel like it rubbed many people the wrong way and gave many of us the wrong impression. I think that a lot of people might have interpreted it as Yuuri basically saying that the tie-pull and everything that he does/thinks while skating Eros is just a performance, that it’s just acting, that it’s not real, and I would understand why it would make people angry.

But thanks to @juicy-shuu I noticed a new side to this line. Because let’s look at the context of this scene here: a moment earlier Victor is showing off to his fans and waving to the crowd – he’s not even looking at Yuuri, much less focusing on him. I think a much more plausible interpretation of the line is “The performance has begun, so from now on, you only get to keep your eyes on me.” (Think of it as an extension of ‘Don’t ever take your eyes off me’ from episode 6.)

And honestly? This makes way more sense than the idea that Yuuri is just pretending to be seducing Victor in his Eros program, because believe it or not, you don’t get extra points in figure skating for being gay. There is absolutely nothing he could gain from just acting all the things he says and does, including the kiss he blows at Victor.

The line doesn’t dismiss their relationship and what Yuuri does during his programs, in fact, it reinforces it. Add to it the line “I’ll show my love to the whole of Russia” and it’s hard to argue that what Yuuri says here is anything but romantic/sexual love. Also, notice how it’s no longer about ‘seducing’ anymore, and now it’s about ‘love’? In essence, all of this is a way of showing the viewer how far these two have come.

Not to mention that Victor was always an essential part of the Eros performance – he’s the person that Yuuri dedicates the program to, the one that helps him focus and draw his sexuality out onto the ice. It’s Victor’s attention, the fact that he’s watching, that’s spurring Yuuri on here. And he wants Victor to see as he flaunts his love in front of all of Russia. All this does is reaffirm their romantic/sexual relationship, albeit in a subtler way than just saying “I love you” or something similar.

So yes. That line (and the tie pulling) isn’t just teasing and is in fact a rather explicit way of showing the current status of their relationship. Anyone feel the same?

Today’s Meetup

The meetup was today and it was absolutely insane and so incredible and I had just an amazing time. Just wanted to talk a little bit about it, but before I go into it more, I want to say a couple things.


I was not at all prepared for this meetup and I want to apologize. With such a new and growing audience I had no idea what to expect for this meetup. I legitimately thought 15-20 people were going to show up, but instead over 200 people ended up coming. 

Originally I had planned on having this meetup in the mall, thinking that the mall would be able to handle the small group of people that would show up. Had I known that so many people were going to come, I would’ve put a LOT more planning into it, and it would have been a lot more organized.

Before I had even gotten to the meetup, people were already getting kicked out of the mall and forced into the parking lot by mall security and police. At the time I thought “well okay, we’ll just move it to the parking lot.”

After arriving and seeing the huge swarm of people, I had to talk to the police and was told that myself and everyone involved in the meetup had to leave the mall property at once. I did not anticipate this at all, so I seriously had no plan. Then I told everyone that we were moving to a new location which was about 20 minutes away with traffic. 

After arriving at the new location, we were all then outside in the cold and we were still taking pictures and signing stuff far after it had already gotten dark. That was totally fine with me, and I made it clear from the beginning that every single person would have a chance for a hug and a picture. But what I was not okay with was the fact that you guys had to wait so long in the cold and in the dark to meet me. I honestly do feel terrible about it. 

I feel so bad knowing that you guys waited so long in the mall to meet me, then were all kicked out, then you all had to move to a completely new location and had to wait in the dark and in the cold to meet me. I sincerely apologize, and in the future, I will absolutely put more thought into these kind of things.


OKAY, NOW THAT I’VE APOLOGIZED I WANNA SAY HOW FUCKING INCREDIBLE THE MEETUP WAS DESPITE THE SHITTY STUFF


This meetup was absolutely insane and so surreal for me. As I said before, I thought that 15 MAYBE 20 people would show up, and when I saw the giant mob of people outside of best buy, I was completely astonished. To everyone that came to the meetup, thank you so so so much. It was so amazing meeting so many of you and getting to see you face to face. You were all so kind and so lovely to interact with. Every one of you was so cheerful and you were all so respectful of not only myself, but to the other people that were there. I am so proud of you guys. This was such an amazing experience and I had so much fun. I really hope that those of you who went weren’t disappointed, and I hope that you all had as much fun as I did, despite having to stand in the cold. 

It was so touching to hear all of your stories and see how much the channel has affected every one of you. I am so lucky to have such a kind and giving community. Thank you all so much for coming today. It was amazing and I cannot thank you guys enough. You all absolutely blew me away. I had so much fun taking pictures with you guys, and filming videos with you and just simply getting to say hi.

Thank you for being at the meetup, thank you for being so kind, and thank you for being a part of this incredible community.

Today was incredible. I cannot comprehend what happened today.

I love you all so much.
