i say “i’m seeing a therapist” and he takes a step backwards. why he wants to know. what happened. what made me like this, basically. what was the final step that pushed me safely into the side of scary people like them.
there’s a lot i think about. like how my illnesses effect me outside of the actual symptoms. like beyond the weight there’s a second river to drown in.
i mean we don’t talk about having to stare at employment papers where they ask you to self-identify your problems. that little bead of sweat that forms when you worry - what if i don’t tell them and i need help? what if i tell them and they think i’m a risk factor? what if they won’t give me the job?
we don’t talk about the way some people act when they find out. the ones who are rude about it are one thing. but then there’s those people you thought were your friends who act like you just told them you’re infectious. who become weird and distant and suspicious like a switch flipped. like if they get to close to you, you’ll give it to them.
we learn to be okay with things we overhear on the bus but we never get used to it coming out of the mouth of the people we love. we carry this secret with us like a rotted fruit, clutching it to our bodies. we’re ashamed of our scars in front of our boss. we don’t talk about our panic attacks during lunch breaks. when the cop pulls you over “i’m disassociating” isn’t an excuse we can open the page on. when you watch people make these ranting posts about how real friends always text back, how if someone loves you, they’ll find the time to spend. success stories make other people cry with inspiration while some part of your brain is saying you can’t do that, you’re not like them. things are uglier at the bottom. you can’t explain why you can’t just make friends. you can’t write because you’re depressed but when you’re depressed you write best. you can’t eat today and no don’t ask why please. nevermind taking the train. never mind trying to be happy. never mind reading books and watching movies and wondering where exactly are people like you in hero stories. i watch a video where a man tells me that being depressed is just a mindset. when i wear all black someone remarks i look particularly emo today. it’s 2017 does anyone say emo anymore, i ask her, and she laughs, “you just look like one of those fake-depressed girls.” okay.
i don’t tell him my therapist is actually why things don’t happen anymore. why i’m getting a handle on it. my tongue feels swollen. i feel embarrassed talking about it. in the highest twist of irony, i think of how many people know my problems anonymously on the internet. i almost spill out all my troubles onto him. instead i tell him it’s just a precaution. that i think everyone should really see a therapist, they’re brain mechanics and we all need a tune-up now and then. he relaxes.
or: a ‘missing scene’ (kinda) (well i used some canon dialogue) (so maybe an alternate scene?) from act ii of the spongebob musical, (chicago version i have no idea what’ll be different in NYC) ANYWAY because i needed there to be a moment where someone – anyone – just asks sandy to stay. and why not the person she puts everything on hold for to help? he woulda owed her that much.
Summary: Fred Andrews is the single parent of twins. He walks in on his daughter with her girlfriend in the middle of sex. Following that breakup you got together with your brothers best friend whom doesn’t have experience in sex so you teach your boyfriend. Guess your not the only twin in a forbidden relationship…only one is legal.
Characters: Jughead x Andrews!Reader, Betty x Reader, Kevin Keller, Archie Andrews (mentioned) and Fred Andrews
Disclaimer: I do not own Riverdale or the characters. I do not own the Comics either. Jughead is NOT asexual in his.
Warnings: Swearing, underage drinking, smut, former same sex relationship,
Tagging: At the bottom
A/N Originally this was going to be a Veronica fic but apparently my subconscious was needy for Jughead.
Jokes were always made about the Andrews twins, Archie was the boy that got hit by the puberty bus during the summer before sophomore year. You however had came out of the awkward phase a lot early than your twin brother, it was the end of middle school when you hit puberty in the most graceful way.
While Archie incredibly straight, you were bisexual with no real preference to be honest. Nobody believed that you were bisexual, especially your dad because he had never seen you look at a female before. Fred Andrews got a rude awakening when he walked in on Betty Cooper going down on his freshmen aged daughter. Next the whole town found out about the relationship, minus the sexual side, with the knowledge that Betty had been crushing on you. It was purely fun for you and experimental for her so it didn’t cause any problems when she discovered she was only into guys and actually liked your twin. You guys continued to be best friends.
It was amusing when your father walked in on Betty and you because he fumbled through the safe sex talk. He didn’t know much about safe sex between females but he tried his best even if both of you were embarrassed beyond belief. He was happy however that you wouldn’t become the parental nightmare of pregnant teenager.
It was the last day of summer that he caught you with your boyfriend in bed together and getting the shock of his life for the second time. Jughead and you had gotten together at the very end of freshman year. Nobody, even Archie whom knew everything about you, knew about it because there was no real reason that they needed to know. You were a slut by any means, you only had had sex with Betty so you didn’t care if someone found out that Jughead and you were together. The only thing was that you hadn’t gone that far yet.
So further to the big boycott list that we periodically reblog, someone wondered a couple of weeks ago whether all the Larries on the list were still active as we’ve seen such a drop in some of the big ones. I’ve found myself with a bit of time on my hands after meeting a deadline earlier in the month, so I thought I’d go through the list and see what I could find. Lucky me getting to click on all those toxic blogs!
16meets18 - this redirects to 16meets18.com, still active, has blogged today 2tiedships2 - active, has blogged today, is a prolific gifmaker but ~weirdly~ enough only makes gifs of Louis from nine hundred years ago aaronexplainsitall (was aaronbutterfield) - Aaron flounced off Tumblr soon after Louis’ promo started at the beginning of the summer, then wrote this post in August about how he wasn’t going to blog about 1D anymore, has actually blogged about 1D since then, but is pretty inactive. One of the London bloggers who all appear to have dropped off Tumblr aboutchopsuey - fairly inactive, the front page of the blog has posts dating back 2 months, dropped off when Louis’ promo started in July alw4ys-you (was summer5tars) - on permanent hiatus, last blog is dated 3 months ago. Says they’re on hiatus due to anon hate and needing a fresh start, may have got a new name anchoredlou - hasn’t blogged since the end of August annalarrie - is the artist for all those fucking rainbow bear drawings that pop up, so may be a sideblog for someone else? I’m not sure. The latest post has tags about how the Azoffs aren’t saving Louis or Harry and how Jeff’s friendship with Harry is a stunt, so that’s how they’re looking annulloamato (was thendowncamethelightning) - no longer at this URL, anyone know where they went? ashavahishta - hasn’t blogged in a month but that’s not that unusual for Asha, she may be back.

Phew! And don’t worry haters, I still had time today to paint my kitchen, do som washing, watch a film, make a shepherd’s pie, AND spend time with my significant other!
My friend’s friend lives and works in Japan in a company owned and ran by yakuza and you don’t believe all the things you hear, in a positive sense!
They have one worker who keeps spilling all yakuza business details like “oops, ah, never mind, you deserve to know!” He has learnt a little bit of foreign languages so that he can spoke nonsense in those languages, whether anyone understands or not.
One worker is a gentleman who has written a note in a women’s toilet stating “If any man is harassing you here, tell me and I deal with it”.
The closest superior tells all the women working there, that “If you are harassed anywhere in this city, tell the man you are working here, and he will leave you alone” - meaning you get automatically some sort of yakuza protection haha.
Everyone is very relaxed and fun there.
I wonder how their syndicate is actually doing with such a merry mafia members.
The topic of communicating with deities is the question I get asked the most so I figured it was time to give it its own post. Especially because this question doesn’t have an easy answer. It’s not as simple as learning to give an offering or how to devote yourself to a deity. There’s no step by step, made for everyone and every deity, guide to communicating. Its ultimately something you have to figure out yourself, though I can offer some help in ways to go about figuring it out. But first I want to clear some things up about communication with deities. I feel there are a lot of misconceptions that surround it and I also need to explain WHY it’s a topic I can’t give you an easy answer to. So let’s get to that!
Faith- So I’ll admit that the obsession that a lot of people have with communicating with their deities confuses me. When I started I didn’t really think much of the hows of interacting with Aphrodite because I, just like with any other religion, assumed that I had to have faith that Aphrodite was listening. I feel like a lot of people are missing that, like being a Hellenic Polytheist means you have constant, consistent, and direct messages from the gods, but that’s not the case. Faith is still an element and honestly it remains an element even when you have been devoted for years. You’re not always going to get confirmations on things you do or ask, actually most of the time you don’t. You just have to have faith they are there and listening
Tumblr -This point is directly related to the first point. I believe that a lot of the misconceptions of communicating with deities and even the obsession with it has a lot to do with our community here on tumblr. I’m not here to accuse anyone or point any blame. I’m not even saying that people are lying or exaggerating. I just think because of everyone sharing their wonderful experiences it’s creating an image of communicating being a natural part of a devotee’s everyday life with their deity. I mean maybe it is for some, but not all. Honestly, a lot of what you are looking at on tumblr are snapshots of worship. Maybe that devotee received an AMAZING sign or message from their deity but perhaps that was the first one in a few months. The truth is, just like with most aspects of our lives, we like to share the fantastic on social media, so don’t take everything you read as the “normal” or the “standard” of devotion. The truth is there really isn’t one and definitely not one for communicating with deities.
Skills - It’s important to keep in mind that communicating with deities can be seen as a skill. And just like with any skill there are those who are “naturally gifted” and others who have to practice practice practice in order to see any results. This is also a reason why you shouldn’t look to others’ experiences as the way it works for everyone. They could be one of those naturally gifted people who are just born tuned into the god frequency or they could also have been practicing and doing a lot of work to get the point where it’s easier to receive messages. So those of you starting out shouldn’t automatically think you will begin getting signs and messages right away, it most likely will be something you have to work towards.
Deities Communicate Differently - A big reason it’s nearly impossible to say how or if a deity is communicating with you is because they do it in different ways. The way Aphrodite and me communicate may not be the same way she communicates with another devotee. A lot of it depends on the devotee. We each have a way of communicating that we will be more receptive to, whether you know it or not. Your deity might know that and choose to use that form, even if you haven’t exactly figured that out yet (fun, right? lol). A deity also may choose a way to communicate depending on the message they are trying to send you. They could also pick a way simply because they find it amusing and/or ironic (i’m looking at you, Hermes). It’s really hard for someone on the outside to tell you for sure how your deity is going to interact with you specifically. I can’t speak for the gods and I can’t speak on your personal relationship with them. Again, it’s something you have to journey through and find answers to yourself.
Now that the bad news is over with, how about I give you some good news? As I said above, I can give you some advice/tips on ways you can figure out how to communicate with your deity yourself. Remember this is a process, a journey, it’s not a faucet. Doing one of these things isn’t going to automatically start the flowing of messages. Just keep that in mind! Now onto the list!
Divination - Probably the most popular form of communication with deities is using some form of divination. There’s A LOT to choose from so do your research and see what calls out to you and give it a try! Some examples are tarot, oracle, runes, pendulum, scrying, bibliomancy, shufflemancy, just to name a few.
Meditation - I strongly recommend everyone try meditation because there’s a ton of benefits to it and one of those benefits is connecting with your deities. Not only can you receive messages and signs while mediating, the act itself opens you up to be more receptive in your everyday life!
Astral Travel - This is another popular method used to communicate with deities. Many people talk about not only receiving messages from their deities, but also full on interaction with them. Make sure you do your research before attempting it! It also may help to practice meditation first.
Dreams - Okay so this is one of the easier ones on the list to do. Basically start recording your dreams and see if you notice anything either popping out at you or that’s repeating. Sometimes your deity may just simple show up like “hey, what’s going on? You dreamin?” but other times they aren’t that obvious (why would they make it easy on us?). Recording your dreams is a great way to notice patterns because sometimes it can take multiple dreams to get a message. This applies to the universe as well. Like it took me a good chunk of my life to realize that when the universe wants me to pay attention it throws an abundance of something in my dream, where I’ll be like “shit thats a lot of elephants!” and then another dream years later “What is with all these fucking spiders!?”. Keeping a dream journal makes it easier to notice things like that. You can also ask your deity to appear in your dreams if you so choose (of course whether they do or not is up to them). Also if you’re into it you can use herbs and stones to better receive messages in your dreams and to remember them when you wake up.
Journaling - Anyone who has been a follower of me for awhile can probably tell you that my answer for most things is “Keep a Journal” and they are probably eyerolling me right now, lol! But I really believe in the benefits of journaling because they are abundant! I won’t go into all of them because we are talking about communicating with deities and damn it I WILL stay on topic! Just like recording your dreams, recording your waking life can help you spot patterns and possible signs that you might miss otherwise. If you’re like me and interact a lot with your deity through emotions and feelings, journaling is truly wonderful! You can start making connections between actions and your emotions that could help you better understand your deity. I also recommend doing this even if you choose to do one of the other ideas listed above. Recording your progress and your emotions is great for looking back on and seeing how far you come especially in those moments when you feel like you haven’t done much. So yeah, everyone keep a journal!
Open Yourself - So those of you who are witches don’t really need much explanation on this and honestly you might have already started on this one, but for the sake of those who might not know let me explain. There are different ways you can better open yourself up so receiving messages can be easier. Using certain stones, burning certain herbs/incense, using oils, casting spells, doing rituals, etc. There’s a lot you can do to help open yourself up to the universe! And these aid a lot in the techniques above!
Talk To Others - I know what you’re thinking “Wait, didn’t you say that looking at what someone else does is part of the problem?” Yes, i did, but it can also be helpful as long as you find the balance! Seeing how other devotees of your deity interact with them can at least give you ideas and a direction to go in. The key is not to compare and to not see their devotion as the “one true way”. Think of it more as a brainstorming session!
I just want to add that this post is my own personal opinion and personal reasons why I feel I can’t answer questions of this topic. I hope this post was helpful to those of you who took the time to read it!
How about Dean and Cas as University professors? Where one is a leather-jacket-wearing, motorcycle-driving badass and the other wears sweater vests and dorky glasses? And none of their students realize they're married until some event happens that ends with someone witnessing them kissing goodbye in front of one of their offices?
Gossiping is a powerful
urge. University students are by no means exempt from it, despite ostensibly
being intelligent adults. So when one sunny Monday morning, Professor Novak
shows up to class with a visible hickey on the side of his neck, the rumor mill
goes spinning out of control.
Because, yeah, Novak is
good looking but he’s always seemed kind of… untouchable. Like a monk, but a
Feb. 11 -
Cuddling/Snuggling – Marty finds Alexei shopping for condoms at 1 AM with Kent. It kind of
goes from there, 1.2K
“For water balloons,” Tater says dumbly, looking like he wants to put
the pack of Magnums back but can’t because he’s lost all motion in his arm.
“Prank on Poots.”
“Hm. Alright,” Marty says, still holding the Little Colds Multi-symptom Cold
Formula meant for his son, who’d started sniffling at 8 PM and have not stopped
since. “Why not just use real balloons?” he asks, pointing at the balloon packs
hanging not far behind Tater.
Tater seems to be strangled by an unseen force. “Penis is more funny,” he says
very slowly, then he visibly winces, like he wants to pitch himself into a
(Marty’s no fool. Everyone on the team knows that Tater has a boyfriend whom he
has yet to refer to by name, which is peculiar especially when the latter
refuses to shut up about him. At this point, between the two of them, Marty and
Thirdy can probably recite the Boyfriend’s failed recipe for chicken salad by
heart and how exactly he managed to conduct a mini-explosion in Tater’s
kitchen. He just hadn’t expected the nameless significant other to be visiting
Providence this week, or that he’d catch Tater buying…supplies.)
“Where I live, there are a lot of apathetic people. People who don’t care at all about what they do or how they do it. They let the world wash over them and barely notice anyone else is even there. Leslie Knope is not one of these people. She cares about everything and everyone in our town. I don’t know how she does it. People come to her with the pettiest, stupidest problems and she cares, like, really, actually cares what happens to them. And if you’re lucky enough to be her friend, your life gets better every day. She spends every waking moment thinking of new ways to make her friends happy. There is something wonderful about seeing someone who has found her true purpose on Earth. For some people, I guess, that’s being an astronaut or a hot-dog eating champion. For Leslie, her true purpose on Earth, her true meaning is making people’s lives better. That’s what I love about her.”
baumanelise: Who’s getting excited for @clexacon in Las Vegas?! I’ll be there March 4th and 5th to meet some of you rad humans. Get your tickets now cause they’re selling like hot cakes….I don’t actually know what a hot cake is, but does anyone really? And in case you were wondering, yes, I did film this in my shower, cause I’m fancy like that. #clexacon
“Hey guys! I’m getting so excited to come to Las Vegas for Clexa Con. I’m going to be there Saturday March 4th and Sunday March 5th. It’s going to be a great time. I’m really excited to come. I hope to see you guys there!”
so i made this post because even the laziest people in existence still have to study ha ha these are just some things i’ve been doing for my revision!
1. you don’t need to rewrite notes to memorise them
i know tons of people say that rewriting notes is a form of memory retention but honestly!!! i don’t have the energy/patience for that ha! for me, the best method to memorise things (especially content-heavy chapters/subjects) would be to record yourself talking. i don’t think this is especially catered to auditory learners, because i know for a fact that i’m not an auditory learner but this still works especially well for me so!!
i usually open up the voice recorder app and talk as if i’m teaching someone! i’d recommend you use a guidebook as reference and not the actual textbooks. guidebooks are more vague, so when you’re speaking about a particular point, you can sort of expand on the point given in the guidebook from your knowledge of the subject! this really helps for revision because you’re basically forced to remember things. you don’t necessarily need to replay your recordings. to me, the “recording” bit of this method is psychological, it makes me feel like i’m actually memorising and not just talking to myself haha.
this recording method is honestly one of the most helpful things i’ve ever started doing and i can do a more in-depth post on it if anyone asks haha
2. use different highlighters for different sections
i know literally everyone has been told this tip in their lifetime but honestly!!! it’s EXTREMELY helpful, especially if you want to do timelines for history! use different colours for things like dates, people, treaties, etc! okay but one thing about this tip that’s sort of different from others is that when you highlight dates, highlight the entire event and not just the date! so for example, instead of highlighting “28 June 1919″, highlight “The Treaty of Versailles was signed on 28 June 1919.” that way, you know the WHOLE event and the date and you’ll be more likely to remember both!
i learnt this the hard way - i used to highlight dates by themselves (maybe i was just totally dumb) and i could NEVER remember what happened on the dates lmao
3. the internet is there for you
it’s a bad habit of mine, but being a very last-minute person, i ALWAYS have doubts even the night before exams. since it’s too late to actually contact anyone, i usually have to rely on the internet. the internet has a myriad of wonderful wonderful resources that are so incredibly useful!
i also recommend watching documentaries (for history/social studies) because even though it’s a more in-depth version of what you have to learn, it’ll help you understand everything better + make your essay stand out :)
4. find a suitable study space
a good study space is probably the first thing you should ensure if you want to get anything done at all. i usually never study at home, simply because i’m always distracted by trivial things such as “i’m hungry, i’m gonna get food” or “i’m so tired i’m going to sleep for five minutes”.
when i started studying outside (usually at starbucks/the library), my productivity level increased so much it blew my mind a little. even though it’s a bit troublesome because you may not be completely sure what materials to bring, you’ll still get a lot done trust me on this lmao
5. always, always plan what you want to do
i find it really taxing to plan out my entire day down to the hour, so i usually just set a certain number of things i want to complete for that day, and just let things naturally flow from there.
for example, i write the things i want to do on my calendar (finish a set of math papers, read a chapter of lit, etc.) and then i just get everything done on that day w/o planning the exact time i’m going to do it! it makes things less stressful in my opinion :)
i’ve tried planning things by hour but it usually never works out so i just stopped doing it and honestly it’s not necessary! what’s important about planning is just knowing what you need to do and then getting it done.
6. handwrite your notes whenever you can
writing your notes by hand triggers your memory more effectively than typing them out. even though i’m tempted to type out notes since i’m the laziest person in existence, i still try (most of the time) to write notes because at the end of the day, you’ll be more proud of your handwritten notes than your boring typed out ones :)
7. study with people who usually do well
this is a rather…shady….method of learning but honestly!!! when you know how the top students function, you can learn from them as well!
i’ve discovered that top students usually perform so well because they review their content regularly, unlike people like me who wait three days before the exam to start cramming everything into my brain.
keep some pictures of your notes or some flashcards with you, so that when you have pockets of time (eg. waiting for a friend, waiting for the bus, etc), you can whip them out and start reviewing :)
these people also act as tutors, so you can clarify your doubts with them and it’ll be less awkward as compared to asking an actual teacher. i know i prefer asking classmates than teachers hahaha.
OKAY i hope this helped :-) please also reblog/like this if you’re a studyblr, i’m new to the community and i wanna follow more people!!
was the video that CN just posted on their twitter made by you? it seems like it was, and if it wasn't I think it was inspired by you
Oh my GOSH haha yeah that was actually me!!! here is the link for anyone wondering! I was super excited to get to do a vid promoting the SU soundtrack, so I went all out!! here’s a frame from when I was in the middle of editing before i did color correction, haha
BTS Reaction: Finding out your boyfriend cheated on you
Anonymous said: Hello. I really love your bog and I was wondering if you could do a BTS reaction to when they find out that your boyfriend cheats on you (and they have liked you this entire time) and they confront your boyfriend.
I hope you like this reaction, anon :)
When he found out, he would be so pissed at your boyfriend for doing that to you. I feel like Namjoon wouldn’t fight with your boyfriend when he confronts him, but he would just tell your boyfriend how much of an idiot he is. “You just lost one of the best girls on the planet. Whoever you cheated on her with is no where near as perfect as y/n is.”
When you came to him crying and saying that your boyfriend cheated on you, Jin would comfort you and make sure that you were okay before anything else. I don’t think he would actually confront the guy, just because he didn’t even want to worry about him. Jin would take care of you before anyone else. “Y/n, I hope you know that you can get over him. He’s an idiot and you could have any guy in the world that you want. Even me.” ;)
Yoongi would be 100% pissed at your boyfriend. After you told him about the cheating, Yoongi would walk out of the building, leaving you to wonder where he was going. When Yoongi finally came back, his fist was bruised. “Min Yoongi, did you punch him?” You asked. “Yeah.” He answers. “Good.” You smiled before going to take care of his bruised fist.
Hoseok wouldn’t confront the guy. Like Jin, he would put you before anything and make sure that you were taken care of. “Hey, y/n. You don’t need to be sad about him. He’s stupid. You’re beautiful and any guy would be super lucky to have you.” He assures you. After trying to make you feel better, he would make funny faces, just to see you smile.
When you came to him in tears saying that your boyfriend cheated on you, he would engulf you in a big hug. Holding you tight and saying reassuring things to you until you felt better. After finding out that your (ex) boyfriend wouldn’t stop calling or texting you, Jimin would be fed up. Jimin wouldn’t go directly to the guy, he would text him from your phone. “Don’t text or call this number ever again. Y/n doesn’t want anything to do with you. Bye.”
Like Hoseok, Taehyung wouldn’t even go to the guy. He would stay with you, making sure that you were okay. When you stopped crying, Taehyung still stayed with you, not letting you out of his sight. He would make funny faces and show you funny videos on his phone so you would laugh. “Look at this video of Jimin. He looks so short. Isn’t it funny?” “Yes.” You laughed. “I know. Look at that pretty laugh of yours. You don’t need that stupid guy because he doesn’t make you laugh like I do.”
Jungkook would be a little like Yoongi, but less extreme. He would comfort you first not wanting you to cry anymore. He might even shed a few tears seeing you cry. After making sure that you were okay. he would go to your (ex) boyfriend’s house and confront him. “Y/n isn’t some sort of toy that you can just play with. She’s a beautiful, amazing girl and you don’t deserve her one bit.” He would say. When your ex started yelling at him and pushed him, that’s where Jungkook drew the line. By the end of the night, Jungkook came to you, bruised. “Jungkook, you didn’t have to fight him.” You say. “Yes, I did. He hurt you.”
Hi. My name was Sarah. Was? You heard right. You may not know me by that name, but I can tell you many do. I might know you, and you think you might know me from social medias or classes or passes in halls but the truth is that that is a lie.
Hi. My name is Transgender. What is transgender? Transgender, adjective: “Noting or relating to a person whose gender identity does not correspond to that person’s biological sex assigned at birth”. It’s the realization that I now have the word that acts as a glue for all of my questions, my musings, my thoughts floating in a void known as the internet asking “Am I broken?” and “What is wrong with me?” and giving them a rope to tether them to the ground.
Hi. My name is Dysphoria. Dysphoria. It’s a mirror that follows me, a mirror that does not require a reflection, but I still see myself in it in the forefront of my mind. I can see it, even feel it - it whispers in my ear, a little reminder almost like an alarm that goes off the moment I feel comfortable in my own skin. It says “Wow, you’re hardly passing today!” and “That shirt can clearly show your chest!” and YOUR FACE IS TOO FAT AND YOUR WAIST IS TOO CURVY AND YOUR VOICE IS TOO HIGH, AND, AND, AND -
Hi. My name is Chest Binder. A binder is one of the only reasons I feel comfortable most days, which I strange because this constricting tank top is one of the most uncomfortable things I’ve ever worn in my life. Wear it too long, ribs can bruise, even break - too little and you feel like you need ten more layers just to hide the visual that yes, my body doesn’t match my name and pronouns. It can be so dangerous just to squish too pieces of fat to your body for safely as high as eight hours a day - sometimes 12 on a bad day - just to come home, rip off the proverbial Band-Aid and stare at yourself in that aforementioned mind mirror and wonder, “Did anyone notice today on the street? Did they care?”.
Hi. My name is Pronouns. Let’s take a second away from this one actually - did you know the gender binary doesn’t exist? The gender binary is a system that says yes, this part is equal to that sex is equal to that gender is equal to those toys and those clothes and that appearance and this and that and this and - yes. It gets confusing unless you live by it and identify by it since the day you were born. But pronouns are one of those categories. Me? I use he/him and they/them. It’s okay to get tripped up, as long as you are actively trying to use them but the moment you just stop caring is a punch to the stomach that bruises and never heals cause it says, “You know what? Your comfort and preferred part of the binary that I live by as well is an inconvenience to me.” And of course, there is outside the binary and around the binary and under the binary - but I won’t get into that. This isn’t a Psych lesson.
Hi. My name is Bathrooms and HB2. Hi. My name is Top Surgery. Hi. My name is Testosterone. Hi. My name is Crying and Packing and Expensive As Hell and Being Told I Am Nothing and I’m Really Fucking Scared Of Bigots.
But those aren’t my names. That’s my life. Hi. My name is Alexander. Let me reintroduce myself.
If you post about how you love ana. Well, liar is a strong word. I’ll just say ignorant.
Which, to clarify
Does not mean I believe you are stupid, it means I feel as if you “lack knowledge of” the subject.
I’m addicted to ana and honestly feel as if my relationship
Actually, let’s call it a
R E L A T I O N S H I T
With her is that of an abusive one.
An emotionally and mentally abusive relationshit.
But we’re so addicted and we feel so safe.
I can’t be the only one who lies in bed at night staring at the ceiling contemplating how much better life would be if I just wasn’t here. I wasn’t here to obsess over calories, over control, over outtake vs intake. I wasn’t here to let myself down, my parents down, my employees down, Florida down and surely not letting ana down anymore.
Like Jesus FUCK do I wish I could be fucking normal. I wish I could fucking eat food with those that I love and enjoy it not just chew it up and spit in a god damn napkin. I wish I could look in a fucking mirror and not want to slice open my skin. I wish I could take a bath without clawing at my skin to remove the two pounds of dead skin that lives on our bodies in hopes the scale will go down. I wish I could bring myself to apologize to my mother who put a security system in place that has cameras because she knew I was sneaking in her house and stealing my brothers Vyvanse and her Phentermine. I wish I could find the courage to reach out to the woman I hit with my car because I took 8 klonopin trying to overdose and felt so insanely hungry I drove uptown to get a latte. I wish I could just fucking stop.
Stop fucking breathing.
Does anyone wonder if they will be able to eat a piece of cake on their wedding die and not run to the bathroom and purge it all over your white dress? Will you ever be able to go out for a date and not have to obsess over what to order before hand so much you end up backing out? Does anyone wish they could have actual friendships that exist outside of your phone so you actually could go socialize but don’t in fear of someone wanting to go grab a bite to eat?
Does anyone, anyone at all, just wish you could shut Ana the fuck up and just breathe for 30 minutes. Please, just 30 fucking minutes of silence and not numbers flashing through your head? I can’t even sleep at night because all I think about is calories?
I had to dig my fingers into my arm until I bled at a birthday party earlier to resist a fucking cupcake. One fucking cupcake that Florida asked me to split with him.
I just want to be done. I’m so tired.
I’m so tired and I’m so alone. Yet I’m the reason I’m alone. I am so loved by so many in this city. So many people look up to me and reach out to me and I’m a fucking mess. Yet no one cares to notice. No one notices you until you’re dead.
My soul is dead, my body is just here. I wish it was somewhere further under. My brain is out of order and my depression is open for business.
So, if you think you love Ana, just wait. You don’t know the bitch yet.
Hey, I'm feeling kinda crappy today and I was wondering if I can get any cute Otayuri headcanons?
aaa im sorry abt that friend!! okay okay lemme try im always up for hcs abt my children
when yuri figures out that he likes otabek he tries to keep it a secret bc,,, hello,,, if anyone finds out theyd never let him hear the end of it
but either hes terrible at hiding his feelings or everyone just knows him that well, bc they all figure it out anyway
and instead of teasing him like he thought theyre,,?? actually rly supportive abt it??? georgi of course understands bc hes georgi and mila only teases him like 25% of the time and viktor and yuuri are #relationshipgoals so like,, of course
n at first yuris rly embarrassed but he slowly starts opening up to them abt his crush until there isnt a day where he doesnt rant to someone abt otabek
“he sent me a selfie on snapchat today and he looked so good what the fuck what he fuck”
“he added one (1) heart emoji in this text??? wtf???/???/ HELP”
“HES COMING HERE HES VIISITING GUYS STOP LAUGHGING HELP ME WHAT HTE FUCK”
and when otabek does visit this is when yuri regrets ever letting these fucking idiots know
bc yuuri and viktor are giving otabek the shovel talk (”WE’RE NOT EVEN DATING WHAT THE FUCK!!!” - yuri), georgis crying abt how “his little brother is growing up and finding love”, and mila’s become the embodiment of the
( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
its a horrible trip for otabek in yuri’s opinion
but that opinion quickly changes when otabek takes him on a date one night, kisses him and asks him if he’d like to be boyfriends
the next morning he finds out that yuuri, viktor, georgi and mila were coaching otabek throughout the entire date and yuri cant bring himself to be mad at them
“… seriously though otabek if u ever think abt hurting yuri-” “SHUT THE FUCK UP VIKTOR”
