it will have many weird things

observations as i drive from Baltimore, maryland to Portland, Maine

-why is Delaware a state. capitalism dictates that a bigger more powerful state should just buy it

-very dumb that you can’t pump your own gas in New Jersey. this isn’t a hot take in sure many people feel this way but it’s just another dumb thing about New Jersey lol

-there’s a lot of moms and cops in Connecticut

-Massachusetts is really weird. like I’ve been to Boston before but I’ve never been to other parts of Massachusetts and why are there pizza places on every corner? why do you guys have these horrible intersections with no stop signs or street lights? it’s just a hellscape free for all and I’ve spent half my time screaming while i drive

hey, I'm an INTP and lately I've been really depressed because I realized that I won't get to see how history will turn out? I know it sounds weird, but I really want to be alive for some huge scientific breakthrough, and I feel like with the tech we have we wont do that until I'm long dead. Is this normal, cause I really just want to experience so many things in such little time

The feeling I understand. That is to say, I don’t know that I’ve ever had that specific feeling, but the type is one I and most INTPs are probably familiar with. I would call it a bigness feeling and class it with other feelings that I get habitually where the hugeness of things and the smallness of me simply overwhelms me.

There are different kinds of bigness feelings, but the one I experience the most is a sort of sadness that I will never be anyone but me. My consciousness won’t ever experience any other person, just me.

You see how the thoughts are similar? They involve sadness at our limitations and ignorance. I think bigness thoughts are interesting, but I try not to let them get me down too much. I think they’re pretty common among the XNXP types, though.

I hope this helps, and thanks for stopping by.

So, earlier was I having one of my occasional moments of pointlessly whiny self-pity (all WHY do I ever try to be in fandom, whyyyyy as an aggressively mediocre writer and a person who fails utterly at even the most basic of human interaction do I even try, shut up self, ugh) which led to me actually looking at how long I’ve had this blog and I discovered that yesterday it was six months since I posted my first fic here.

And for me, that is kind of a big deal because I generally don’t ever hang around in any given fandom for more than a couple months at most. But, you know, I like it here! A lot! I enjoy writing these stories and I have so many things I still want to write. So I just want to say a huge thank you to you all for putting up with me, I know I’m kind of weird, sorry.

I also for the first time ever made myself look how many followers this blog has and damn, that was… surprising. I never ever take for granted the pretty amazing fact that there are people who like to read what I write and I really, really am just so massively grateful to everyone for that.

So yeah, thank you.

Any prompts for a serial killer in love? I'm writing a story about this guy who has really many problems and a girl helps him to overcome them, he is so possessive but at the same time he is very kind, broken, and unhappy person until he meets her, love all your ideas!

Alright. I watch a lot of documentaries on serial killers. Weird thing to admit, but it’s true. Now, Romance or love in a serial killer, incredibly rare. Serial killers have like, a whole different set of emotions and thought processes then ordinary people. There are serial killers who have been married, been in relationships, but that doesnt necessarily mean they were in love. Hell, ordinary people don’t always marry for love. 

What Im trying to say here is that the chances of an actual serial killer falling in love are very slim. I also feel like this idea falls a bit into the idea of romanticizing mental illnesses. Now you, or others might disagree with me, there may be more to your story I don’t know about that would prove that idea wrong, but from what you’ve asked of me, I feel uncomfortable writing prompts for it. Im very sorry that I can’t help you, and I hope this doesnt offend you; but I highly suggest you really look into serial killers, and mental illnesses, as well as the romanticizing of mental illness and why that’s wrong, before you continue such a story. Again, so sorry, and I don’t mean to offend you.

hELLO I'm a young trans boy named Roni, but the issue with that is it often gets pointed out as a weird name, especially since it's pronounced like macaroni and like.. heck. I'm already out to my parents, so I can't really change it and I'm personally comfortable with it, it's just the constant judgement and having to repeat myself. A good chunk of people I know think my name is Ronnie. Another name I was considering is Roswell, but my mom hates that one and I'm already attached to Roni. Heckin.

i love the name Roni, my name is Caspian and ive been called so many things. Like Casper, Cat Pee, Casin, etc and to be honest if you love the name then stick to it! Others shouldnt have a say in your name, because its yours!

Can’t find water bottles/gallons?

By me in Orlando all the water is already gone. When Costco got a shipment today it was gone before they even finished unloading.
So what do you do if you can’t find water bottles?
This is what we did when we couldn’t find anything for Matthew

*Get gallon Ziplock bags and fill those up about ¾ of the way. Get the ones that zip closed really tight. Then stack them up in a box. Weird squishy water bottles.
Also good for making ice blocks for freezer that can be melted later if needed. For that only fill ½ way or the bag will explode.

*Fill every cup you have with water. Cover tops with saran wrap to keep little bits of dust and whatnot from getting in the water since it’ll be sitting before you use it. Don’t have many cups? Buy a thing of disposable ones from the store. 

*Go to the dollar store and get buckets, Fill and cover those. We bought 3 1-gallon buckets and those are for the animals but they’d be fine for people too.

*For someone like me there are old gatorade bottles hiding around my house. Gather up water bottles, fill them.

*Rinse and reuse other containers. Your milk won’t last if the power goes out. Finish it up, rinse the container and fill it. 

*Tupperware. Fill and close it. Can also be frozen to make ice blocks. The more ice in the freezer, the longer things will stay cold if you lose power.

No one is stocking up on ziplocs, cups, saran wrap, or buckets that I noticed. Plenty of all those still left on the shelves while the water section was empty.

Good luck with the storm friends.

I just wanted to say to young people on tumblr that if someone gives you weird vibes or ever makes you feel uncomfortable in any way, don’t interact with them. I know that everyone seems like a friend here, you bond over music you like and movies you saw at the cinema and many more interests. I was legit talking about this a few days ago with a friend here, everyone seems like a good person at first. Everyone seems nice and OH SO COOL but if they ever do something, even the littlest thing that doesn’t feel right to you, please please get away from them. Do anything you have to do to protect yourself. Don’t give out your phone number and various infos easily, especially if you’re underage but like… this goes for everyone. And I know I sound like a grandma but I don’t care. This is still the internet. Blog safely and carefully. Even if someone is a perfectly good person who didn’t do anything wrong but they’re older than you and you don’t want to follow them or have them follow you and talk to you, you don’t owe them anything, snip snip cut them off your tumblr life!!!! If they’re really a good person, they’ll have no problem with unfollowing you and not contacting you again and respecting your wishes. Stay safe, kiddos 💕

Ok because I’ve talked about buff Donald Duck and my displeasure with human portrayals of him making him look like a child, I’ll share this.

Things we know about comics Donald:

  • wears a sailor uniform, fought in WW2
  • from the 1940s-50s
  • physically strong, probably muscly
  • in his 20s and 30s in most stories
  • kind of a ladykiller, is considered physically attractive
  • light-haired
  • (also does not appear to have weird voice)

With this in mind, I propose this human version of Donald:

I want all young Autistic people on this site to know that they should never have to change themselves to satisfy neurotypicals.

That’s what society wants you to do. And there will be many, MANY instances where you feel obligated to do so. And maybe you will. You might stop stimming for a while because that girl gave you an irritated look, and even though you know you should stand up for yourself you feel so embarrassed and silly that you put your stim toys away.

Believe me, trying to change yourself to make neurotypicals more comfortable is a mistake. All those weird Autistic things you’re embarrassed of may become useful in the real world where clones don’t get far. Don’t look back in five years without any idea who you are because your one goal is to blend in with society.

Being Autistic is beautiful. There is NOTHING wrong with being Autistic. Please don’t change to make some neurotypical kid you won’t even remember happy.

Allistics/neurotypical allies who want to help, REBLOG THIS LIKE CRAZY so maybe an Autistic kid/youth can feel better about themselves.

Autistic people struggling with self-image or anything, feel free to message me 😘

Uranus in the houses - viva la liberation!

In the 1st House – Liberation of an attitude. Free minded. Unique perspective on life. Quirky “eccentric” personality and opinions. Strong need for a free and unlimited self-expression. Adjusting yourself to fit into expectations of others is the biggest betrayal. Electryfing and magnetic personality. Attracts bizarre, eccentric and underdogs. Stubborn and fixated on their own ideas. Humanitarian. Looking at the bigger picture. Detached yet friendly. Blunt. Shocking atitude that rejects the norm and the ’‘carved path”. Usually they have a strong need to emphasize their style. The way they talk, look and speak – they stand out even if they tried to fit in. They embrace the change and highly value truth and open-mindness.

In the 2nd House – Liberation of values. Money comes and goes fast in their life. They may get money in a way that is considered ’'unique”; ’'different” or just plain “weird”. They can earn a living by doing things related to modern technology (like social media). They values and self-esteem are not stable, they have a lot of ups and downs and can be considered unconventional (it can be shown even through native’s fashion choices, they may like to experiment with how they look like). Their dignity and self-esteem is centered around being independent, unique and modern. That is why they may dislike and rebel against traditional  values taught by their family/society or way of earning money and investing it.

In the 3rd House – Liberation of a mind. Native has unconventional way of processing their thoughts. They have sudden flashes of inspiration and their creativity appear in the most unpredictable moments. They value independence and variety of thoughts. They may have unusual speaking patterns. Their words and ideas may come off as very suprising and they may be considered eccentric and weird (for example by their sibilings or parents if they are an only child).Their relationships with neighbours are also specific and kinda distant. Weird and shocking events may happen during their travels and communicating with others.

In the 4th House – Liberation of a soul. Native is a person with unique experiences and characteristics. Their home life can be described as a very “hot & cold” place and they themselves may appear this way to other family members. It is said that one of the parents was somehow distant from a child. They could not be physically present in the native’s life ( example: work abroad) or be distant emotionally (too logical, chaotic, eccentric). This person nature is changeable yet stubborn. They are very fixated on their own freedom and the need to preserve indviduality in their home life. They had chaotic life. They have unique tastes and usually stand out in the family whether they want it or not.

In the 5th House – Liberation of expression. Natives have an interest for unusual ways to express themselves. They enjoy trying new things and usually have artistic side that is expressed in whatever form they find currently exciting. They have a strong need for a free self-expression without any restrictions which causes them to appear shocking to others since they do not restrict themselves and live true to their nature. Unconventional and rebellious. They may feel drawn to unique or just bizarre lovers. Their romantic stories may end up as quickly as they start. These people are exciting, loving and extremely creative. Their children may be very unique and quite rebellious too.

In the 6th House – Liberation of work. Schedule and routine is almost non-existent. Plans are shattered, unstable and easily change in the blink of an eye. The only predictible thing is their unpredictibility. Altruistic and helpful.They are rebellious and truly despise rules and codes which they consider boring and limiting. They find liberation through following their own type of  ’'schedule”, by being free in their workplace, freely expressing themselves there and not being constantly observed and checked by authorities. They may prefer working alone or similar to 10th House placement as a free-lancer. They may procrastinate a lot. They develop unusual working habits. They may be very responsible or be exactly the other way – reject any kind of responsibility which they can find limiting. Their health may have many ups and downs so they should always take care of themselves. They are very creative and inventive in solving problems and fixing things.

In the 7th House – Liberation of partnerships. Natives wants equality and independent, shocking people with them. They need a lot of freedom in their relationships. Friendship is important part and probably more important than romance itself.They dislike rigid, official and unbalanced relationships and aim to achieve absolute equality with their lovers, friends and business partners. 7th House Uranus person appears shocking, electryfing and magnetic to others. They are liberated and that is who they attract too. They may start relationships really fast but they may end them with the same speed especially if they feel restricted, pressured or misunderstood by their partners.

In the 8th House – Liberation or inner resources. Natives experience many sudden changes in life which force them to look for deep, inner resources. Transformation is important part of their growth and happens a lot in their life. They have a big need to form intimate bonds but they also demand a lot of independence and tend to keep others at distance which can be sometimes troublesome for them. They are attracted to taboo topics like death, sex and the occult and usually having those kind of interest causes them to be some kind of  black sheep but because of their inner strength they are able to ignore responses of others and continue following their interest with their shocking, rebellious attitude. Highly perceptive and passionate. May suddenly inherit money through really bizarre route.

In the 9th House – Liberation of philosophy. Mediation, despising religious authorites, dropping out of university or coming up with new conspiracy theories – that is something very much in the style of this placement. 9th House person is liberated, free-minded adventurer who wants to focus on expressing their views freely. They like trying new things and learning new cultures and languages, they may attract foreigners to them! They may also try learning languages on their own. They are bright and their genius lies in their fresh, open-minded philosophy. They despise being restricted, especially in their education which can cause them to avoid going  on university or even dropping out if they feel that university life is not satisficing enough.

In the 10th House – Liberation of work path. Whatever native chooses to do they always take the importance of independence in their job. They like jobs that allows them to freely express themselves. Supressing their creations and limiting them in any way is met with resistence which cause native to usually reject job that demands them to obidiently follow instructions and authority. They like to be their own and only authority. They may be interested in making money by using technology (like using social media outlets). They may have a natural talent for fields in science, technology, metaphysics, astrology. May often change what they want to do in their profession. They may actually change jobs a lot before they settle for something for longer. They bring originality and unique perspective, they are very inventive.

In the 11th House – Liberation of companionship. Native make unique friends and activists. They are unique as friends themselves and they find unique people too. They are passionate and devoted to their causes. Very loyal to their companions. They value bonds made by choice more than those by blood. They value equality and humanitarism, they aim to spread those kind of values to society and help society to progress. Freedom of expression, communication and a lot of independence is important for them in groups they live in. Because of their somehow eccentric nature they can never really ’'fit in” on 100%, they always stand out in groups whether by choice or by other circumstances yet they still manage to form bonds with others and still preserve their independence.

In the 12th House – Liberation of dreams. Natives are brilliant and inventive but many times they are hiding this part of themselves. Their dreams may be somehow shocking and even prophetic. Their sleeping patterns may be weird and unstable. Strong inuition They may get their flash of genius through dreaming and see answers they are looking for there. They may also be interested in unusual ways of healing or medicine in general. Occult and hidden knowledge may be something they have an easier access to.

In retrograde – your rebellious, liberated   self may be deeply internalized. On the outside you may appear as someone obedient, always following the rules, never questioning things. The truth is that you are quite rebellious and you have unique perspective of things but you tend to not share it with others. You may also reject this part of yourself and purposely try to conform to the norm because you are too afraid to stand out.

Critique, the oily beast

Hi, it’s me again.

Below is a text of personal opinions that I’ve decided to share, concerning a downside of constructive criticism, and it might read as an angry rant. I apologize for that. Before I begin, I also want to point out that I’m not targeting anyone specifically. What I am doing is sharing my views on a behaviour that I’m not fond of. Parts of it is tongue-in-cheek, but the subject might be touchy. Wall of words after the cut, if you want to read it:

Hi Portland friends, you have just a couple more days to check out “Zenith & Nadir”, my show with Lindsey Carr at Antler Gallery; it closes September 25th! Thanks for all your kind words about my new paintings and to everyone who purchased art. This one is called “Imbolc” and is both an end and a beginning.

This month has been filled with tragic news on so many fronts. A lot of the time making art – even art about things I care about – feels selfish and weird, and I want to be doing so much more to protect the vulnerable from the powerful… For now I do the tiny bit I can and will continue donating a portion of my print sales to people who are making a real difference.

I’ll be releasing my Obituary zines and 5 art prints on Monday at Noon Central; donations will go to groups providing hurricane relief in Puerto Rico and Cuba, wildfire recovery in the PNW, aid for LGBTQ DACA recipients in immigrant detention, and wildlife rehabilitation here in Minnesota.

Please check teaganwhite.bigcartel.com for a preview of the upcoming releases.

Sometimes, I wish I could just shake people and say, “Listen, I love you, but you aren’t the only person in my life, and so if you’re going to experience legitimate, severe emotional distress whenever I can’t give you all of my attention, then this is going to be a frustrating and disappointing friendship for both of us. And while that doesn’t make either of us a bad person, it does make us incompatible. I have literal thousands of unanswered messages. It’s not healthy or fair for you to make me your sole confidant. And I mean both fair to me as a person with their own life, and fair to the other people who need me. I can’t always be there. I can try and try and try, but I am not your therapist, and if you place the entirety of your mental stability in my hands and my hands alone, I can almost guarantee that I’ll drop it, because I’m already holding too many things. Even if it doesn’t look like much, it feels so, so heavy. I know you’re trying to avoid being manipulative even when you can’t help it, and you know I’m trying to make time for the people I love even though sometimes having a conversation really is too exhausting, but maybe our efforts aren’t enough for each other. Maybe it would be easier and healthier to accept that than to continue this weird cycle of guilt and self-loathing. Maybe we both need people who understand our lives and needs better, and maybe it’s both of our fault and neither of our fault at the same time, and maybe that’s okay.”

I’ve had so many girls that are bi, or lesbian or just not sure say how much it means to them to be able to see a character on TV that’s like them, and to see that and go, ‘Oh look, OK, I’m not weird, I’m not messed up, this is normal’. And to have that representation on TV and what it means to them has been the best thing about this character [Sara Lance]. If you don’t understand it, that’s what makes you afraid. And the fact that we don’t make it this big thing about who she is - it’s not like, 'Oh, the bi girl’. It’s just one thing about her, and that’s the way it should be handled.
