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.
I’m Asexual, which means that I’m not sexually attracted to anyone.
But I’m also sex-repulsed, which means I’m grossed out by sex and I don’t want anything to do with it.
And I know this is probably dumb, but those two things combined kind of makes me feel like I’m a bad asexual. Like, most aces aren’t sex-repulsed, they’re just ace, and that distinction is a very big deal. I don’t think I’ve ever heard of anyone else who is both.
So after ep5, it’s easy to conclude that Lucy is, in fact, a little shit, and more AI-ish than straight programming because favouritism is not an algorithm.
And we’ve been told that John and Dutch met when he tried to steal Dutch’s ship.
And now all I can think is that Lucy was less “stolen” by John and more “ran away” with John and I’m picturing Dutch watching unimpressed as her ship just saunters/glides away from the docks an dI can’t stop laughing.
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 fuckingamazing. 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.
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 legit crying right now. I’ve never felt this emotional about any American awards shows. My boys looked so good and I’m so proud of them. I’m so proud of ARMY and what we’ve accomplished. I hope BTS and ARMY have fun tonight.
