Stupid

This was stupid

This whole thing, it was so stupid, and it made Annabeth feel stupid, and she wasn’t stupid, she was smart, gods damn it, so why couldn’t she do this? She should have been able to do this.

She only realised she was crying when a tear splashed on to the page of her textbook, blurring the black letters printed on the white page. That tear falling felt like conceding defeat, and soon enough she was crying in earnest, sobbing hard enough that the words became even less intelligible than they’d already been.

She put her head down on the book and let herself cry, feeling terribly stupid and sorry and frustrated. Her whole face felt hot, flushed with anger and annoyance - at this essay, at herself, at the fact that she was a daughter of the goddess of wisdom and she couldn’t seem to write a simple fucking essay.

When the door to her room opened she instinctively straightened, grabbing her dagger and spinning in her seat to face the intruder. When she saw who it was she immediately collapsed back onto the desk, face first, letting her dagger fall to the floor. 

She heard Percy shut the door behind himself. There were a few soft footsteps, and then a gentle hand on her shaking shoulder and a quiet question. “Annabeth, hey, what’s up?”

Honestly I’m so proud of everyone who worked on that video set. Like it came out so good and they all did so wonderful – I love this new crew that’s going on with Mark. I feel like he’s been so creatively inspired lately it’s absolutely insane. Kudos to Tyler, Kathryn, Amy, Ethan, Pamela, and Robert! The content has been so mind-blowing lately – I’m so proud of Mark and how far he’s come.

Genuinely.

Bangtan has got to be one of the most talented group of musicians I’ve ever encountered. Their music holds purpose and is fueled by their ambitions, their hard work, their endless dedication. Their drive to create music that resonates so deeply among themselves and their listeners is fucking amazing. You can really tell that they live and breath music. This is their life, their passion. And I’m so incredibly thankful to be witnessing their paths unfold in real time.

My plan was to make fun of my younger self by reading a few of my very old fanfics to comfort my older self (as the loser I am obvs), but to my surprise I was pretty good. And productive. Tho now I hate her because how dare she be more talented than the current me

I’m so happy that Michael decided to see a therapist about his mental health because I’d hate it if he was going through a bad time alone and wasn’t getting any help. It also takes a lot of courage to tell people that you’re struggling and the fact that he decided to tell a whole fucking crowd full of thousands of people makes me go all gooey inside and this has made me realise how fucking much I love Michael Clifford wOW IM GOING TO GO CRY IN A CORNER GOODBYE

Bangtan makes me want to do better, be better, work harder.

They’ve grown so much since they first began. Their music and style is endlessly evolving, and with each new album their artistry improves. And none of that improvement is just because. They work their asses off slaving to produce new music, stronger lyrics, learn more and more beautifully crafted choreography. Coming as far as they have was not easy, and as they continue to blossom as both people and artists, the roads they’ll explore may be jagged and rough with difficulties and struggles. But they persevere and push forward because they’ve all got dreams they want to see brought to life. They all have goals, hopes, and wishes. Seeing them working so hard makes me want to do the same. I have this new drive to keep pushing until my dreams become reality. I want to keep growing as a person. I want to let go of my fear of failure and push forward. And, I don’t know, I’m just so grateful that I’ve found this motivation. I desperately needed it, and somehow BTS came into my life to give me that push.

i’m just so happy and proud seeing minseok confident with his body. he could take off his shirt and have no abs and i’d 100% still go crazy. because it shouldn’t matter what type of body he has, the fact that he was able to do that comfortably in front of all of his fans is what really matter tbh. admittedly, he’s sexy as fuck, but then again, when has he not been? 

I’m literally sobbing right now.

I don’t think you have any idea about how much this means to me.

After reading so much vitriol and hatred aimed at Italy ever since the Ireland game by a bunch of people incapable of taking responsibility for themselves and admitting their national team failed to do their job, and instead, using Italy as a scapegoat for their failures, this makes today’s victory all the more sweeter.

After reading so many homophobic, misogynistic and ethnocentric stereotypes aimed at Italy by people from Turkey, this makes this victory all the more sweeter.

And when you consider that I myself, am a queer woman of color whose whole entire life is affected by homophobia and misogyny, this victory makes me cry tears of joy, mainly because I really do feel like it’s the good guys triumphing over intolerance and bigotry here.

And after Sergio Ramos hit Eder and Pique practiced his rugby tackles on him (the both of which, were not even carded for), this makes this victory all the more sweeter.

And when you consider just how long I’ve suffered after the immense pain I watched during the final of Euro 2012, as I watched my team get torn to shreds during the final of Euro 2012 and had to suffer it in the midst of people who were cheering for Spain (and who weren’t even Spanish), then you’ll understand why this victory means a lot to me.

I’ve suffered a lot for this team, after soul crushing 4-0 losses and crying through their unfair group stage exits.

But this, this … today … is why I love this team. It makes everything I’ve gone through worth while, and this is why I will continue to love, and support Italy.

I’m so proud to be a tifosa per l’Italia.
