im not even excited for anything anymore. it takes so much to get me excited and then i get so excited i annoy the shit out of everyone who’s around me.

I wish meeting girls in real life was as easy as it is for heterosexuals. I want to go into a coffee shop and write my number on a napkin without it being weird. I want to bump into someone on the street by accident and it be love at first sight. This internet culture gives me the green light when it comes to sexuality. Profiles tell me which females are gay. I wish I had the courage to effortlessly flirt. I wish I could go into a normal public space and pick up a girl. I have to travel a distance to a gay bar just to find someone similar to me while my friends get to go almost anywhere. I’m sick of staring at a phone when I just want to connect with another human being in the flesh.

Friendly reminder that

It’s not okay for partners to hit each other!!! Just because one of them is a girl does not mean she can hit or slap her boyfriend!!! Arguments and anger do not justify violence!! I’ve seen relationships depicted like this in fanfiction, books, tv shows, and movies and it’s not okay. Gender does not matter. You. Do. Not. Hit. Your. Partner.

If you are a beginner keeper, you should listen twice as much as you speak

And this isnt a “erg newbies are annoying” post or one meant to discourage. It’s just plain dangerous to be giving advice if you have only been caring for an animal for a few months.

It’s important because you would simply not know the reasoning behind a lot of what you have learned because more of what you learned was regurgitated information. You learned the HOW, but not the WHY. So when you perpetuate information you have been told, you’re potentially furthering misinformation you have learned.

For example, I commonly see people say “ball pythons cant go in large enclosures because it stresses them out.”

This is ultimately not true. It is not enclosure size that stresses ball pythons out, but expansive empty spaces. Very few people provide their ball pythons in tanks with sufficient furnishing to allow them to positively use their space.

However, if you go around repeating that information, you’re incorrect and potentially have caused harm for an animal (maybe not in this example, but you get the picture).

For this reason it’s much better to read and take in information without feeling the need to take on the responsibility of correcting people. Focus on your personal animal care techniques and how to improve them at every step. Ask questions and read read read!

And this is especially because you dont want to be the dingdong telling someone their normal would be a pinstripe ball python if they simply stretched the snake out for a better photo.

“When he and Emma stood next to one another it was like you heard the angel choir singing. It was blessed. The last time I’ve seen that blunt of a chemistry was Hepburn and Tracy; when [Garfield and Stone] are on screen, you’re mesmerized. It’s so obvious how strong they are together, and how he’s strong for her, and she’s strong for him.

I have never had a triggered attack before tonight. I just started watching an episode of the black list and a guy is being buried alive. It literally made me run into my room and have to ground myself with cuddling my dog. You may think that this is stupid and clearly not a phobia, but the way to stop myself having an attack about cleithrophobia is to be around people and things I love and to remind myself that I am here and not in my fucked up brain, except when I was locked in a changing room and had a full on panic attack. Triggering is such an awful feeling.
