Here's a suggestion from someone with BPD, coming out of a very toxic relationship: It's hard, but trust your friends. I've found the BEST coping mechanism for me is typing out everything I need to hear RIGHT NOW and posting it publicly but to everyone else. Why? Because if I need to hear it, chances are someone else does, too. It helps, and will help you. You are not alone. 💖
; for the person asking about patronuses, quizzes are a good way to start in terms of narrowing down your animal type. your element can help with this (birds: air, ground animals: earth, water animals: water), and the "animal in you" quiz is something i've always found helpful. this website (whats-your-sign*com/animal-totems*html) also has a very large listing of animals split into categories and described (usually) in detail, and it's been the best resource i've found thusfar for patronuses!
Hey! I love the Medieval/Renaissance time period so much, especially the clothes. Do you have any resources I could look into to learn more about them, specifically the peasant/non-elite women's clothes? It's been pretty hard to find stuff and the best I've found has been from paintings (like June of the Duc de Berry Book of Hours). Also trying to find how ladies wore their hair has been astonishing difficult! Do you have any places I should look? Thanks!

Omg I just found your blog, and it's the best thing I've ever done! Can I ask you a question? I've been trying to this one interview for ages and everyone has gods of it...
