1. the person i like and why i like them.
That would be my amazing boyfriend, Alex. When we first met, I thought he was really cute and funny, and over time I saw how kind and gentle he is and how he’s so unapologetically himself, and I fell head over heels for him. I love how he gets really, really excited when he sees a dog (or any kind of fuzzy animal), how much he loves dinosaurs, how he’ll call me out on my shit when I need to be called out, how he and my little sister are literally best friends and how he’s just as protective of her as I am, and how I can tell him literally anything without having to be worried about being judged. He’s amazing, and I could not ask for anyone more incredible to love.
4. the best thing that has happened to me this week.
So thelastoftheemotionlords surprised us during our fourth of july party last night with matching t-shirts for our entire friend group. They’re amazing, and I almost died because we were like “SQUAD PHOTO” (because we’re that nerd group that calls ourselves a squad,) and all of a sudden he screams, “WAIT,” and rips open his fucking shirt to reveal a bright blue shirt with a purple cheeseburger on it that says “SQUAD” and proceeds to throw one at each of us. It was the highlight of the evening, easy.
10. something i’ve lied about.
Pretty much any time in the past 2-ish weeks when someone’s asked me if I’m okay and I’ve responded “yes”. Truth is I’ve been an anxious wreck but have been hardcore suppressing/hiding it.
13. one person from tumblr i’d throw off a cliff, one i’d marry and one i’d fuck.
I’d probably throw signthewirewithlove off of a cliff for bringing 15 goddamn pounds of potato salad to my party, I’d probably marry girl-in-the-library because she’s my secret lover, and I’d fuck nobody, because I am in a committed relationship, lol.
14. something i do without realizing.
Apparently sometimes I moan in my sleep, which makes for really hilarious or really awkward situations depending on who is in the room while I’m sleeping, lol.
16. a drunken story.
Oooh my Goooooooood okay.
So like a year ago, signthewirewithlove came to the city for the weekend to visit my boyfriend and I at school, and so we spent the weekend in his apartment being belligerent and drinking obscene amounts of alcohol, because college. Anyway, we were all pretty drunk one night and she and I got into an argument over God only knows what, and she held herself up in the bathroom.
Specifically, the bathtub.
She had the curtain drawn and after a while I felt bad for fighting with her, so I sat down next to the tub to try and apologize. She wouldn’t answer me, which being the stubborn brat she is, I took as her just being difficult. So I talked to her for an hour before I finally got fed up and ripped open the curtain only to see that the bitch was asleep.
So I left her to sleep in the bathroom, and the next morning one of my boyfriend’s roommates (who is one of our very good friends,) goes in to go to the bathroom. Now, meanwhile, Shea had been giving all of the boys grief the night before for neglecting to shut the door completely when they were going to the bathroom. So when he closed the door and began to go to the bathroom, Shea wakes up in the bathtub and from behind the curtain just says,
“I see you closed the door this time.”
23. my view on being tumblr famous.
It seems like it would be super cool sometimes, but it also seems really, really stressful. Fame does not always equal popularity, so the fact that so many people would know of you and could dislike you seems like a very, very scary thing to me. Tumblr has a way of spreading toxic information like a wildfire (for example, the xkit guy,) and we live in a very dangerous “call-out culture” where instead of being educated when making mistakes, people get torn asunder and the fact that so many are so quick to say “DOX THEM!” is terrifying. So while having an inbox full of friendly asks may be pretty cool, the potential for that privacy to be breached is extremely scary to me.
26. story of my first kiss.
LOOOOOOOOOOOOL. Okay, so my first kiss happened when I was 14 with my friend Mark. We started dating when I was in 8th grade and going into my freshman year of high school. We went to see Disturbia (yeah, the movie with Shia Labeouf) and when his mom dropped me off after the movie, he gave me a quick peck on the lips. And because I was 14 and it was like, 2008, I ran inside and emailed all of my friends about it, with big, ridiculous size-48 font and a bunch of colors and clipart and I’m literally cringing with embarrassment as I type this, oh my God.
