it does not even make any sense

It’s important to pay attention to how you pay your attention. 

I have a tendency to overanalyze. A consequence of this is that if I find myself unhappy (and I can’t figure out why) I get stuck in a looping lack of action. Thus rendering my time and attention ineffective because I’m just sitting and stewing (Kitchen!) instead of admitting and doing (rhymes!). 

But answers aren’t always clear. Especially when you’re having a hard time pinning down the question. So I think that maybe there’s a way to answer questions of happiness by taking a step back from the questions themselves and looking at the pattern of thought itself. 

If you’re feeling generally unhappy and can’t put your finger on a tangible reason then try to keep track of where your mind wanders when you’re free of distraction. 

Does this make sense to you guys? It’s not a solution or even any advice really… just sharing that sometimes I think that our feelings and moods can be a bit foggy and we can’t always see where the bumps are coming from. So maybe there’s something to be done zooming out on the weather-map of your life to see which parts are overcast. At least that gives you a direction to start.

Thoughts?

seeing brown skinned video models in music videos i watched growing up was a really weird negotiation of understandings because i wanted to see more of them, i wanted to see them represented, i wanted them to seem loved and admired but i was like “this is misogyny in action???” like all the women were being dehumanized to some extent but i was like “why do they only want to dehumanize light skinned girls” does anyone know what i’m talking about… like why do they only wanna use light skinned girls as props even though none of them should be used like that but i wanted to see myself.. represented even though it’s weird representation. idk if that makes any sense.

Forgotten Cube Member Appreciation Post

Shoutout to Jwong, who makes completely random videos that don’t make any sense, but are still hilarious.

Shoutout to Pat, who is one of the few that, I can recall, has never been problematic and is extremely nice and smart.

Shoutout to Kevin, who helped many through Project Vieira and still perseveres even though a lot of people make fun of him, even jokingly.

Shoutout to Kermit, who does a lot of work and technical things, and afk’s for hours to help the Cube community.

Shoutout to Huahwi, who, even though he doesn’t go on Cube as frequently as many others, is always so chill, awesome at UHC and PvP, and has such a soothing voice.

Shoutout to Devon, who has an amazing voice, is really entertaining and funny, and really talented.

Shoutout to TYBZI, who doesn’t really go on Cube but is downright hilarious and doesn’t let other people bring him down.

Shoutout to all the other Cube members who don’t receive the attention they deserve. Making videos and editing almost every day with no breaks must be really tiring, and they are all pressured as much as the more appreciated Cube members to get a video up and be upbeat and happy everyday. They aren’t as paid attention to as others, and I understand that it’s almost impossible for every single youtube to receive the same amount of attention, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen a whole tumblr post just about Jwong, you know what I mean? I just think that all of them should be included.

Piece Now, Peace Later: An Anarchist Introduction to Firearms

[W]hy now of all times publish a beginners’ manual on firearms? From the vantage point of our current plateau, it hardly feels like the time to start robbing banks, liberating prisoners, or attacking police stations. Few anarchist communities are so rooted in their neighborhood that community self-defense programs make much sense, and copwatch programs probably aren’t ready to arm themeslves any time soon either.
The reason for beginning to share firearm skills now is that the ability to conduct successful armed actions, even on a small-scale, does not emerge overnight […] In the same way that anarchists need to know carpentry and roofing and cooking skills long before they participated in radical relief efforts in New Orleans, so too will we need firearms training years in advance of the need or ability to use that training.

waitwaitwait. is the knight's aspect lacking in the session BECAUSE they are a knight, or the other way around? (because they are a knight, they are the only source of their aspect among their friends)

Could people please stop spouting this baseless fucking “a Knight’s session lacks his aspect” broad-brush bullshit that doesn’t make any sense?

You realize that EVERY session is going to have a Time player, right? And that the kids’ session was always going to be an accelerated John’s-birthday affair, right?? And that a session is designed to challenge ALL OF ITS PLAYERS IN DIFFERENT WAYS, regarding EACH of their aspects?!?

Hell, the Maid of Time is supposed to be a class which makes and buys Time, and even the trolls’ longer session didn’t have enough of it to find the final frog!!! How does THAT fit your silly little pattern??!

How many times am I going to have to shut this shit down? Who and where is it coming from? Why do I get constant anons just assuming it like it’s actually a thing, especially when Latula’s session doesn’t fit at all?

*wrings newspaper in frustration, goes off to take a chill pill*

EDIT: shizukateal said:

What the SHIT?!?

Why would that kind of stuff be on the MSPA Wiki???

Not even MY stuff should be on the Wiki!! It’s too damn subjective/theoretical, even WITH all our research! I’m almost 100% certain of some of our aspect stuff and *I* wouldn’t put any of it up there without a disclaimer the size of Saturn!

Am I the only one that hates being told 'everyone is depressed!' 'You'd be surprised at how many people are miserable too!' It doesn't make me feel any less alone in my problems, it just makes me feel like everyone else feels like I do, but functions 1000x times better, which makes me feel like an even more pathetic, useless person. Does that make sense? :/

I can’t say I’ve heard that, just being told that other people have better reasons to be depressed than I do. But there are a lot of things that can be said to marginalize one’s illness, don’t be surprised to hear them.

anxiety in relationships is so confusing because you want to stay with the person but then one night everything just kind of crashes down on you and you have all of these doubts so you start avoiding everyone because you’re stuck in a constant loop of “i like this person” “no shit they hate me”

things i wish cis ppl understood:

non-binary =/= identities between male and female (though some nb ppl id that way). non-binary is any identity other than male and female, and these identities frequently have nothing at all to do with any concept of male or female. i, as a femme afab non-binary person, am no more female than a binary trans man. 

go beyond recognizing non-binary identities, reject the binary as your default conception of gender. stop thinking of non-binary ppl in shades of male and female unless that is how they personally identify.

INTJ Translation

“Is there any way I can help?” - I probably have the best solution to this problem, the standard equation I use is Logic + Rationality = Answer. Just leave emotions out of it. That means if it does involve emotions, my equation will collapse and my advice should not be recommended. Better find someone else!

“That is so foolish.” - That is stupid, there are so many ways it is flawed. First of all, it cannot work because the two ideas contradict each other. Imagine this abomination put into effect. It doesn’t even make sense at all! Second, it’s stupid. Third, it’s stupid, Fourth, it’s… 

“It’s a waste of time.” - It’s neither useful nor applicable to reality, why should I care? Why should I keep thinking about it? I don’t even want to think about it.

*In response to adulation or highly formal greetings* - Yes, I’m quite flattered. Please don’t overdo it and start worshiping me as a deity, though.

*Participates or begins a long conversation, with excitement and eagerness with the same person many times* - Hmm, I find you interesting. I positively enjoy these type of conversations with an intriguing person. Or, you’re not bad at all. If this friendship continues, I will gladly be persistently loyal, but I do not forgive betrayals so easily. 

“That’s interesting.” - That is awesome, Pure awesomeness. I want to learn more about it and obsess even more and pour out everything I like and know about this fascinating concept—

“L0L OMg th@t iz s0 c00ol and raD!!$ I n33d ths!!! Sav4s my #life!!! IMP0rtat  & 3szenti@l in #life!!” - Please interpret this as sarcastic mockery concerning something that I find so bad it’s hilarious.

Nothing about MnM makes any sense. I have watched the SWAY video many times & when they greet each other they are like a married couple and she telling him to hang up his coat dinner is in 5 min. It does look like she is coming down with a cold and he looks tired. Yet, they both worked there tails off and performed a beautiful dance. What I also see is genuine love and affection that even being tired and sick cannot cover. It's in there they just need to flip the switch!

I agree…

uriaaagh asked:

how about one where their S/O's pretty shy around people, the type where they're too scared to be in big crowds, which makes it hard for them to be around when they have host club meetings..... sorry does that make sense? (。-_-。)

Sari, I really really hope I did this alright?

Tamaki : This very vanilla member of the host club would take forever to realize that his precious S/O was uncomfortable, being as oblivious and thick as he is. He’d continue shouting out ideas for themes that the club should try out someday soon, or other ridiculous things until his lover got his attention. Even then, he wouldn’t be subtle in any sense of the phrase. He’d outright exclaim to his S/O about how they didn’t have to attend these meetings if they didn’t want to after finding out what was wrong, all while he hugged them so tightly to his chest that they could barely breathe.

Kyoya : The vice president of the host club would be very much the opposite of Tamaki in this situation. Not at all being one for public displays of attraction, he wouldn’t hold his S/O towards him tightly or anything along those lines, and he would notice his lover’s discomfort right off of the bat. He’d try to comfort them in little subtle ways like squeezing their knee when the other members were arguing with their princely type, and pull them to the side after the meeting to talk to them about it. “You don’t have to join us during these conferences if you don’t want to, ____-chan. I can very well handle these idiots on my own.”

Honey : Mitsukuni would be somewhat like Tamaki. He wouldn’t wait until the meeting was over to pull his significant other to the side, nor would he try to hide anything. He’d outright hand his lover Usa-chan, hug them extra tightly from the side, and exclaim, “What’s wrong, ____-chan?” He’d flash his S/O a very worried look, with a soft pout included in the bundle as well. Long story short, he’d manage to comfort his precious lover through slices of cakes and hugs. 

Mori : Takashi would know immediately that something wasn’t right with his very precious S/O. Although, he wouldn’t mention a thing throughout the entire host club meeting. He’d watch as Tamaki and the other members (a.k.a Hikaru and Kaoru, sometimes Kyoya) argued consistently through the few hours they spent in the room. Although, he’d still manage to keep his significant other as calm as possible through little pecks on the cheeks or forehead, alongside hand holding and squeezing their knee gently. 

Kaoru : Kaoru would make it the most obvious without actually saying a word. He, too, would end up waiting until the end of the meeting to speak to his poor significant other. However, during, he’d end up flashing them worried glances every second or so, drawing a little too much attention to the both of you as he held his lover’s hand tightly. Although, he’d definitely be able to make it up to his significant other quickly afterwards, as he apologized and smothered them in a plethora of kisses. “I’m really really sorry for asking you to come to that stupid meeting, ___-chan! I promise you won’t have to do it again if you don’t want to.”

Hikaru : Hika-chan would be bound to stand up the second he noticed his significant other’s discomfort, which wouldn’t take very long. “____-chan, you really don’t have to be here if you’re uncomfortable. I understand, and it isn’t like it’s all that big of a deal. Go lay down, and I’ll come join you afterwards, okay?”Subtlety certainly wasn’t this redhead’s strong suit, and he wasn’t about to lie and convince himself that it was.

idk if i really like nico all that much. I feel like he's a kind of overused and bad representation of a queer guy used in mangas a lot of times. like you know what I mean? the whole odd looking, sexual in a creepy way and flamboyantly dressed and characterized thing? Idk if this makes any sense or if there's any validity to it but it's just the vibe i get from his character.

yeah i feel you there and i mean the anime definitely didn’t help him any, but at least he did actually get some character development in the manga, so i do like him for that. 

of course, they cut this from the anime but he is definitely one of the more compassionate aogiri associates even if he does play into a lot of stereotypes…

What is loving you?
Or rather:
What would I promise to you
If I could ever let the words leak out my lips
without flooding your basement?
Because i couldn’t watch you wade in your own house–
casting glares at me like rescue rope–
but if I could say those words
tell my secrets on an ark built of both our hands
I’d promise you rain
I’d promise you sweet and cool
cleansing, rolling the salt off your skin
I’d promise you the constant sound of falling drops outside your window
I’d be the lullaby of dripping leaves
I’d give you the breath of cool air after a week of humidity sticking wet and heavy like a tongue in the morning
I’d be the kiss rainy of breeze upon your cheeks that finally breaks that, your first deep inhalation in days
I can promise you rainstorms
which means I have to promise thunder and lightening
I’m sorry, but I do
loud enough to crack your ears
don’t stand under trees on the off chance you’ll be struck
maybe thunderstorms are wild and frightening
and sometimes make it hard to sleep–
they add a little danger to your life–
but you can’t deny the crackle in the air
the thrill of lightening, veins of energy pulsing through the sky like the heartbeat in your neck
painting the clouds and throwing shadows
You can’t deny storms are powerful
that they shake into your bones
storms make your eyes light up
and your lungs yearn to bay at the sheathed moon
Sometimes they’re fear, but more often thrill
Besides, I’ll be inside with you while the heavens roil
I promise you rain and all its wonders, all its fears
and I promise you shelter from it
storms are best enjoyed someplace warm and dry
with waiting arms and clean sheets and hot tea
enough space to breathe when you need it
I can’t promise you the power won’t go out
but I promise to have flashlights
I can’t promise it will be spotless
because life gets busy and laundry piles up as do papers on the kitchen table
but we can wear pajamas and eat on the couch
and fall asleep watching the silver sky, the raindrops racing down the windowpane
I can’t promise you anything perfect
I can’t promise a thousand doves and blessings from the fairies of the wood and sunny
skies and swept floors
but I can give you the beauty of damp bark and electrical storms and falling asleep
somewhere safe
It’s what I have.
I can’t promise riches or diamonds.
I can give you two hands and a thousand rainy days
the smallest wonders, the ones that fit in my pockets
because that’s what love is:
a tiny ship in a seething sea
a beacon
a home
a little worn out and rough in places
maybe nothing in the grand scheme, but certainly bigger than some dry and hungry kids.
It’s real and unpredictable
favorite weather can go awry
from sunshine to heat wave
from drizzle to hurricane
but that’s nature
and I can promise you that
everywhere, everyday, in the air, the dirt, the growing things
the hum that put us on the earth
I’ll kiss you with that current
and hope for once to be swept away.

anonymous asked:

I'm with a guy & we do sexual things, but i feel wrong & dont know how to tell him i wanna stop & just be like a standard couple, does that make sense? How do i tell him?

It makes a lot of sense. Sweetie, if you do not feel okay with what you are doing with your body then you can stop. Literally, at any time it is perfectly fine for you to decide you no longer wish to partake in the activities to do with you. Even if you two are in a relationship. You need to sit him down and let him know you don’t want to do anything sexual any longer. Personally, I have always held firm to the belief that if you are adult enough to have sex or do whatever then you should be mature enough to talk about it. With anyone you are with you should be comfortable enough to voice your opinion. Not only that but it is YOUR BODY. Remember that when you got into a relationship with him that you did not sign over the rights to your body. So what you do with it is up to you. I think your fear stems from your belief that he won’t like you or he won’t want to be with you any longer if you stop the sexual activities. And honestly, if you have reached a point where you don’t know if he would want to stay with you because of sex then you don’t need to be with him or you don’t know him that well. You deserve better than that. If any person holds what you can and cannot do for them over your head then you don’t need to waste your time placing them as priorities in your life. He isn’t worth it. You feel wrong about sexual stuff. So until you feel right don’t do any of it. Honestly, I am going to tell you this. I am a virgin. It used to be hard to tell boys because I was afraid they wouldn’t like me. But I also knew that I would not like myself if I didn’t place my feelings into consideration. I had one boyfriend who literally tried to pressure me into everything and I said no. I refused to lose myself trying to keep him or anyone else. Because if he actually cared, if he actually liked me for me he would RESPECT my decisions. I understand it is scary to throw yourself out there because what if he doesn’t catch you? then maybe you should try catching yourself. So at the end of the day, you were mature enough to do things now it’s time you talked to your partner about stopping. You will only hurt yourself and your relationship if you keep these feelings hidden. Because anything sexual is a big deal. You have made your decision and it’s that you don’t want to do it any more. If he does not respect that, then forget him. Sit him down and say “hey, I think we need to chill on the sexual things. I feel wrong and I don’t want to feel like this. I should not feel like this.” Remember that you are not asking for permission or acceptance. If he does not agree then let him go. He does not respect your feelings. But sex is all about intimacy and pleasure so if you are feelings weird and wrong then something isn’t right. I did not know how to answer your question at first because I could not get it down. I knew what I wanted to say but I could not word it properly. So if this has failed you then this post I saw like literally two seconds before I responded should help: here it is. I hope I have helped you. Good luck, love. Have a nice day!

XOXO JACKIE B.

Oh man. I think that so many people post that image on their dash ( like me now ) why ? Why They don’t have an official picture of their family ? Why Sakura just put her picture into Sasuke’s Team picture ? It’s so weird, I mean, he has not seen since she was a baby, Sakura does not even know if Sasuke have glasses, Sarada says to her even though they are actually married! I want to say more is that we do not even know when they are put together and why, in any case why Sasuke decide to go with sakura? (To forgive to be à bullshit with her lol). All this does not make sense I think. Apart from that, we also have the Boruto cases, or it is clear that he has not a lot of contact with his father … We were struck by the resemblance between Sasuke and Sarada, the same face. Finally, the other children are copies of their parents except the son of Sai and Choji. In the first chapter, it says a lot and I’m afraid of the future of this Naruto gaiden ….

One think I dislike at comic shows is when people want you to have a narrative about your publishing company. Like, it can’t just be that you make comics for the sake of making comics. People are so indoctrinated into the idea of corporate identity that they’re disappointed when they don’t encounter it, even though so much of the time the corporate narrative is just at marketing bullshit. Someone today insisted today that my whole thing was “making comics with my friends in Brooklyn.” It was impossible for him to accept that I’m a reasonably professional publisher who is dedicated to producing quality books on a limited budget. That’s not interesting enough. Does this make any sense? I’m really jet lagged.

*AOU SPOILERS* Do you think the way Nat interacted with Clint's kids was sexist? I'm in the headcanon camp that Nat makes dad jokes and is a giant dork so I honestly thought it was cute. BUT she's the only female Avenger and to have her character be the one with that sort of interaction with the kids may have been driven by certain ideas of what a woman SHOULD be. I guess, even though I liked it, I really don't like it? Does that make any sense?

It funny to me because I have such a weird relationship with children. As in, I hate them. I hate children, they are awful and I do not see the appeal what so ever. However when I am around children I act nice. I smile and tell their parents how cute they are, poke my tongue out and engage with them in ways I don’t want to. 

I don’t even really know why I do it other than people find it really weird when I don’t. Like if I’m not super nice to kids people comment on it and it makes things awkward. Like I hold a squalling infant that at any moment could defecate all over itself and people ask me “does it make you want one??” and I politely answer no instead of demanding someone get this gross human infestation off of me. 

So I guess in my head canon Natasha is like that :P

I guess I could have considered it a little sexist except for that she knew those kids. She had been around them and they are her best friend’s kids so it’s natural to me she would be the one who was closer to them. 

I can see where the criticism would come from but I would disagree, personally, that it was sexist in this particular case.
