Does anyone else occasionally think to themselves "what would Jack do?"
Like, once in a while I’ll be thinking about how I’m feeling/my outlook on life that day or contemplating how I will/have interacted with others, and I’ll ask myself “How would Jack act in this situation?” or “Would Jack be proud to see a community member doing/feeling this?” And if so, I feel good about it!
Don’t get me wrong, I don’t think @therealjacksepticeye is some infallible moral beacon, and I don’t model my life decisions based on him (or even many of my small decisions). But he is someone who has clearly matured and become more self-aware in front of millions of people’s eyes, and he always tries his best to spread a message of positivity, humility, compassion, and hope to his audience. He’s human just like us, and he makes mistakes or has down days. But the important part is that he consciously and openly tries his hardest to be the best human being he can, and that’s a beautiful damn thing that we should all aim for.
Although none of us know him personally, I wholly trust that his online persona is a very real representation of himself, and so that’s why he inspires me. Because he is a flawed person that has become a role model. And I’ve never really believed in role models, so that’s saying a lot.
Anyway, what I think I’m trying to say is that Jack gives a tangible face to a much larger concept that drives me, and I have become a more positive and humble person because of it. Hopefully this doesn’t sound stupid, especially coming from a grown ass person who probably shouldn’t feel this way. But I do, and I think a lot of other fans here do too.
This was way too long, but I hope someone read it and liked it. If so, thank you!!!
“lawful/neutral good characters are so boring” look i’m sorry Edgy Dickerson and Surly McAngstpain are the only character types that pique your interest. god forbid people enjoy their escapism in the form of characters that are diplomatic and chill and kind in this gross, cynical world

severely underrated things from last night’s episode
mabel finally gets a side plot that has nothing to do with a boy
and it was actually really good
wendy is the true feminist icon
that gnome cop sting scene was actually the goddamn funniest thing i’ve ever seen
that scene where mabel realizes she’s been played and rips the unicorn off her sweater like damn. the “your heroes aren’t infallible and are actually awful people who sometimes play with your emotions for fun” is unfortunately a very relatable thing for me and a lot of people with abusive parents and i’m really happy to see the lesson that you shouldn’t base your worth on what they think shown to kids because i know it really would’ve meant a lot to me when i was younger
when mabel clocked a unicorn in the face and came away with blood on her fist
“everyone wants sausage but no one wants to know how its made”
that side plot was just totally not what i imagined it would be and for that i am glad
grunkle stan only had 10 seconds of screen time but he used each one wisely
that whole “morality is relative” thing was sort of played for laughs at the end but that is such an important message. everyone has different morals and you’re not a bad person if you violate someone else’s ridiculously high expectations. perfection is unattainable, and you don’t need anyone’s validation. that is just so important to teach to young girls wow
“if there was an owl in this bag he would be long dead”
finally an answer for why there was so much bill imagery in the shack
one of dipper’s thoughts was “i miss Tyrone” and that absolutely breaks my heart. this boy really needs to open up to someone
If you look back only at your mistakes, you’d think you were an idiot. If you look back only at your wiser choices, you’d think you were infallible. But if you look back on everything, you realize you’re a human being who has been through a lot, grown a lot, is always still learning, and improving as time goes by.
You know what I want to see more of? Post-Game godtier powers.
Give me a John who gets more airtime than should be possible when he jumps, who never gets too hot or too cold and can always tell when it’s going to rain or snow or bluster. (Give me a John who dreams of flying, who has to concentrate to keep himself corporeal, like if he stops thinking about having mass he’ll drift apart, unable to pull himself back together.)
Give me a Dave who can tell what time it is down to the millisecond, with infallible accuracy. Who makes split-second catches like it’s second nature, like time slows down for him before a crisis, who can fast-forward through any of John’s movies by speeding up his perception. (Give me a Dave who can’t stop hearing ticking. Who sometimes blinks and finds himself ahead or behind of where he should be, who can never be sure if he’ll wake up the morning after he fell asleep.)
Give me a Jade who can make any bag into a bag of holding by shrinking what she puts in it or making the inside bigger than the outside. Give me a Jade who can shrink herself at will to go on adventures inside terrariums, who could tell you where anyone is with pinpoint accuracy, who can show up on any of her friends’ doorsteps like it’s nothing at all, who never gets lost. (Give me a Jade who misses being able to wander, who feels trapped, confined, in her body, on this planet. Give me a Jade who feels purposeless without Prospit’s quests or the pressured trials of the game, who feels like nothing presents a challenge anymore.)
Give me a Rose who can still tell the most favorable outcomes of any decision. A Rose who is never in the dark, figuratively or literally. A Rose who never gives a wrong answer. (Give me a Rose overwhelmed by all the information in her head. A Rose who dreams of tentacles and ink and darkness and wakes up choking on her own tongue, who knows she shouldn’t be afraid of what she saw but can’t reason with her own emotions. Give me a Rose who can’t tell if she thinks people are individuals or pawns anymore.)
Product: @lorealparisusa infallible mattifying primer and foundation
Price: $29.95 AUD each
Location (by convenience): @pricelineau
SPOILER ALERT! I love this product, and this is why.
For those of you who have followed me through my insta journey, you’ll know I have terribly dry skin, which has always prevented me from using a lot of foundations, including all from any matte range. I bet you can tell where I’m going with this - this is the first ever matte foundation I’ve been able to successfully wear LONG TERM without caking or flaking. I haven’t been able to test the 24hr claimed longevity of this, but I have successfully worn this for approx 15hrs without having to touch up or anything. This is also using the matching primer, though I have heard from many that you achieve similar results without purchasing the primer also.
It’s got a fairly basic range of colours, though the packaging is marvellous. I personally only need a pinky nail worth of product to cover my entire face.
So is it worth it? Yes. Though if you’re still skeptical I wouldn’t recommend purchasing this until it is on sale. I say this because all skin types are different, but I can happily say as I 24/7 dry skin person, I can happily wear this without a drama.

I love how people are celebrating that ‘Taylor Swift Is Over’ as if long-time fans don’t deal with this bullshit every 2-3 years. That ‘every once in a while’, where the hate reaches a crescendo and suddenly there’s lists of receipts going around everywhere, no matter how fucking uninformed, outdated, or apologized for they’ve been. Give people ONE legit receipt and suddenly all the receipts are legit. Y'all keep complaining she doesn’t act her age, but drag her for things she did as a teenager like they were recent. Am I saying some of the hate she’s getting rn is undeserved? No. But the reason that I’ve been on her side is because it always spirals into a bunch of stupid shit she definitely does not deserve.
Which lip products would you recommend for a wedding? I.e. something kiss-proof and able to survive an entire day.
When it comes to important events in ones’ life, the last thing anyone wants to be doing is worrying about their lipstick coming off, fading or in the case of a wedding, ending up all over your significant others face. Here’s some of my favourite longwear lipsticks.
If you’ve been following my blog for a while now you’d know that this product is my ride or die. It wouldn’t matter whether it was 5, 50 or 500 dollars I’d rave about it either way - that’s how good it is. 2 Step Lipsticks often cop a lot of flack but in recent years they have become reformulated with new technology, the key is just to use them right. When using this you need to apply the colour side first onto completely dry lips and then smile for a minute or so until the lipstick sets (do not smack your lips together, they will stick) once the lipstick is touch dry then apply the moisturising balm top-coat and you are good to go. These have amazing pigmentation and last, I mean LAST. I’ve worn these from 9am to 9pm with eating and drinking and there are no signs of wear, they even last through Christmas dinner. (Full review and swatches here)
A cheaper, slightly less better version of the L’Oreal Infallible Lipsticks. I personally find these ones a little more drying (perhaps because the topcoat is more of a gloss than a balm) and they can start to fade a little throughout the day, but either way they’re still a good option and sure beat your regular lipstick (plus they run cheaper than the L’Oreal)
Your other option is to wear a soft, well moisturising sheer lipstick that you can re-apply throughout the day as though it were a lip balm, if you’re not going to wear a bold or long-wear lipstick than this is your best bet. They need maintaining but they’re not “high maintenance” as such. I love:
*YSL Volupté Sheer Candy
Lipsticks and *Essence Sheer & Shine lipstick

Affection looks different depending on your expectations. We tend to expect love to be returned in the same way we give it out, but each of us show love in a different way. Become more attuned to your lover’s signs of affection by discovering how he or she shows love. And if their style doesn’t work for you, this rundown of love-styles can point you toward the person who will satisfy what you’re looking for!
Aries March 21 - April 19:
Regardless of age or gender, there’s one absolutely infallible way to know if an Aries loves you: they’ll pick a fight. Not a physical fight, of course, but a playful war of words, designed to simultaneously flirt and test your mettle. Aries was the ancient God of War – so, far more than romance, they want a worthy opponent. They also want to count on someone to have their back. Banter, fight back and play practical jokes on them. Keeping up is tiring, but oh, so worth it.
