The Signs as Their Breakup Songs

Aires: Gravity - EDEN
“But if you keep second guessing then there’s only gonna be one end

But you can leave if you really want to
And you can run if you feel you have to
And I’ll be fine if you ever ask me
I know its hard, but no one said its easy
Falling’s easy”

Taurus: Santa Monica Dream - Angus and Julia Stone
“I’m singing songs about the future
Wondering where you are
I could call you on the telephone
But do I really want to know?
You’re making love now to the lady down the road
No I don’t, I don’t want to know

I’m somewhere, you’re somewhere
I’m nowhere, you’re nowhere
You’re somewhere, you’re somewhere
I could go there but I don’t

Goodbye to my Santa Monica dream”

Gemini: Ghost - Halsey
“You say that you’re no good for me
Cause I’m always tugging at your sleeve
And I swear I hate you when you leave
But I like it anyway

My ghost
Where’d you go?
I can’t find you in the body sleeping next to me
My ghost
Where’d you go?
What happened to the soul that you used to be?”

Cancer: Two Years Ago - Ellie Goulding
”It’s now just sparks
Now the fireworks are fading
Is it over?
Lost you in the summer two years ago

You, you, you
I’m still thinking ‘bout you, you, you
Two years ago
You, you, you
I’m still thinking 'bout you, you, you
Two years ago

If there’s no storm, why’re we a shipwreck?
Thought our love is insurmountable
He knows my heart is still aching
Never thought it would be caused by you”


Leo: Fix You - Coldplay
“When you feel so tired, but you can’t sleep
Stuck in reverse
And the tears come streaming down your face
When you lose something you can’t replace
When you love someone, but it goes to waste
Could it be worse?

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you”

Virgo: The Space Between - Dave Matthews Band
“You cannot quit me so quickly
There’s no hope in you for me
No corner you could squeeze me
But I got all the time for you, love

The Space Between
The tears we cry
Is the laughter keeps us coming back for more
The Space Between
The wicked lies we tell
And hope to keep safe from the pain

But will I hold you again?
These fickle, fuddled words confuse me
Like 'Will it rain today?’
Waste the hours with talking, talking
These twisted games we’re playing”

Libra: Oh My Word - Flip Grater
“Oh my word I’ve been waiting
For you to walk on by
Oh my word I’ve been staying
Inside safe and dry

Will you live underground
And crawl out when it’s light
Do you fail to stand up
And stand in when it’s right

Oh my word I’m just saying
Would you aim this high
Oh my word I’m just waiting
For you at my side”

Scorpio: Can’t Forget You - My Darkest Days
“Whoever said this pain, would ever go away
Didn’t know what it meant to, be here without you
Is everything you see, reminding you of me?
Does it hurt when you breathe too?
'Cause it does when I do, cause it does when I do

When anybody says your name I wanna run away,
I keep remembering I can’t forget you
It doesn’t matter when I try it happens anyway,
It’s been forever and I can’t forget you
With every single day, it won’t go away
The way I feel about you
And when it’s said and done, you’re the only one
And I can’t regret you, so I can’t forget you”

Sagittarius: Doomed - Bring Me The Horizon
“You can have my heart

So come rain on my parade
'Cause I wanna feel it
Come shove me over the edge
'Cause my head is in overdrive
I’m sorry, but it’s too late
And it’s not worth saving
So come rain on my parade
I think we’re doomed
I think we’re doomed
And now there is no way back”

Capricorn: Please Don’t Go - Barcelona
”All those arrows you threw, you threw them away
You kept falling in love, then one day
When you fell, you fell towards me
When you crashed in the clouds, you found me

Oh, please don’t go
I want you so
I can’t let go
For I lose control”

Aquarius: Oceans - Seafret
“It feels like there’s oceans
Between me and you once again
We hide our emotions
Under the surface and tryin’ to pretend
But it feels like there’s oceans
Between you and me

I want you
And I always will
I wish I was worth
But I know what you deserve
You know I’d rather drown
Than to go on without you
But you’re pulling me down”

Pisces: Running Up That Hill - Placebo
“You don’t want to hurt me,
But see how deep the bullet lies.
Unaware that I’m tearing you asunder.
There is thunder in our hearts, baby.
So much hate for the ones we love?
Tell me, we both matter, don’t we?

You, be running up that hill
You and me, be running up that hill
You and me won’t be unhappy.”

anonymous asked:

[1] idk how much u know about alexithymia but does this sound like i have it: i was reading something written by someone with alexithymia and it said "I’ve learned to use body clues to identify my emotions. Depression is a sinking weight in my chest. A literal heaviness of my body. Anxiety comes with a racing heart and racing thoughts. Anger is burns like fire, hot and intense." and i thought, doesn't everyone do that? i dont struggle to identify emotions but thats exactly how i do it

[2] and i usually just don’t bother to identify emotions i just feel them, its only if its something i dont usually feel that i try to figure out what it is ive got an example, i was at a concert and waiting outside to get stuff signed and it was cold so i was shivering, and i still don’t really know what i felt (my friends just say ‘shook’ and it makes sense so i do too) but at some point i noticed that i was shivering too much for it to just be the cold

According to wikipedia, alexithymia is:

  1. difficulty identifying feelings and distinguishing between feelings and the bodily sensations of emotional arousal
  2. difficulty describing feelings to other people
  3. constricted imaginal processes, as evidenced by a scarcity of fantasies
  4. a stimulus-bound, externally oriented cognitive style

So yes, this is alexithymia! I have it, too. - Mod Venu

Leash Laws & Why They’re Important

So I went on my walk today at my local park, and while dogs are allowed, there’s a large sign you can see right as you come in that states in large black letters; ‘ALL DOGS MUST BE LEASHED AT ALL TIMES’. However, on my walk today, I encountered a group of three on the pathway with two dogs, one of which was off lead and running around investigating roughly 5-10 feet away from its owners.

Now, as most of you know, I work with dogs as a career. I am very comfortable with them and can read their body language and know exactly what to do when approached by a strange dog. This one came up, inquisitive, but didn’t jump or look anything more than interested and mildly excited. I didn’t go to the dog’s level because I didn’t know the dog and it was off lead and I didn’t want to trigger any sort of excitement because it could have jumped up or knocked me over and there was nothing to keep the dog restrained or controlled if that was the case. So I just smiled, kept on walking, and the owner apologized and recalled the dog and took hold of its collar. Later on I saw that the dog had been leashed, so she had rectified the problem at least.

However.

What if I was scared of dogs?

What if I had a traumatic experience with dogs?

What if I had my own dog, on lead, who was dog aggressive or dog weary?

My point is that the encounter today could have gone horribly if any of these factors came into play. For these reasons alone you should always keep your dog on a leash.

‘But my dog has great recall! They listen to me, I can control them!’

Leash laws are not about how well you can control your dog. They are about the safety of those around you.

Please, for those who might be scared of dogs or walking their own dog who isn’t friendly, obey leash laws.

Rose Quartz’s reason for Steven

Now that ‘Storm in the Room’ has come and gone, I want to remind you of a line of dialogue from a very old episode.

Steven says this about Amethyst, which turns out to be true. We still see signs of it in the Amethyst arc where she pours herself into defeating Jasper. But I think this line is true for all quartzes.

Amethyst doesn’t wanna think about herself. She hates herself. It’s a miserable thing to think about. You can see the stark contrast with the Famethyst; they all have eachother to think about, which is why they’re so happy.

Jasper doesn’t wanna think about herself. Although she is full of herself, she’d rather be a part of anyone else. First Lapis, and then corrupted quartzes, if that’s what it takes.

Steven doesn’t wanna think about himself. He doesn’t wanna think about the expectations riding on him and all the horrible things he’s done and been through. He’d rather think about everyone else and what he can do for them.

And Rose was the same way. She didn’t wanna think about herself. She was always asking everyone else about themselves. Whenever she’s asked about herself, she either evades it entirely or delays it as long as possible. She dedicated herself to – quite literally – everyone else. Both the Crystal Gems, and the entire human race.

But it backfired. The rebellion caused a war, the war caused the destruction of so many gems (and maybe even humans), caused her to bubble Bismuth and shatter Pink Diamond, and who knows how many other awful, dreadful things.

She didn’t want that anymore. But she couldn’t escape it. She couldn’t just run away from it. But she couldn’t just NOT think about it.

Everyone around her was so unique, so full of life, so free of burdens … and she wanted that.

Rose Quartz wanted to be anyone other than herself.

She didn’t make Steven to escape her mistakes. She made him because she thought so little of herself. Because she knew, anyone in the world would be a better fit as the leader of the Crystal Gems than her.

She wanted to live life as someone who would know what to do. Someone who could be strong. Someone who could make the right decisions. Someone who could create good where all she created was bad. Someone that could set out to do what she never could; to save everyone. Someone that could be everything she wasn’t.

She can’t give Steven the answers because …

Steven is the answer.

the signs based on people i know

aries: stubborn and independent, married to their netflix account, assholes but lowkey sensitive, always ready to turn up
taurus: competitive and sensitive, loves food and attention, would do anything to protect their friends and family, good for late night talks
gemini: either very emotional and empathetic or very cold and self-absorbed, silly, good sense of humor, quick to cut people out of their lives
cancer: no chill, always there to tell you the truth when you need it but usually in a nice way, would probably murder someone for you (or for fun)
leo: assholes, talk a lot, usually have some wild story to tell, VERY blunt and sarcastic
virgo: angels probably, always there to make you laugh, hates most people but it makes you feel special when one of them actually likes you
libra: try really hard to look cool, actually really cool most of the time, all over the place, very loyal
scorpio: VERY intense, either very sensitive or a psychopath, you can usually find them in the middle of a 5 hour long rant
sagittarius: always wants what’s best for everyone, sassy, loves listening to gossip, good listeners
capricorn: either cares about everything or cares about nothing, usually the parental figure of the friend group, generally responsible but doesn’t really know what they’re doing
aquarius: really hard to get close to them because they’re so closed off, they’ll come pick your ass up at 3am from a stranger’s house if you asked
pisces: all over the place (literally. it’s 4 in the morning and they’re not in their bed. where are they??), very VERY sweet and VERY generous

harsh advice for the signs based on people i know
  • Aries: Your optimism is a gift to those around you and it inspires others to have hope, but you have to consider the not-so-positive outcomes of each situation you find yourself in, Aries.
  • Taurus: You believe that changes and surprises are always a bad thing and you always have your guard up, but you need to learn to give things a chance to be great before you judge it as a bad thing, Taurus.
  • Gemini: You have the power to be everything you dream of, but you need to go after your dreams instead of coming up with reasons why you can't or why you aren't good enough for them, Gemini.
  • Cancer: You spend so much time worrying about other people's well-being and happiness that you forget to take care of yourself, it's okay to put yourself first sometimes, Cancer.
  • Leo: You say it matters that others have a chance to shine but if you really cared about other people like you say you do, you'd make some small sacrifices with their happiness as your top priority, so make sure your actions reflect your words, Leo.
  • Virgo: You need to give yourself more credit than you think you deserve because you work really hard, but you have to accept that you're good enough for yourself no matter the results, Virgo.
  • Libra: You can be really quick to form a bad opinion of someone if you don't like their behaviors which can be a good thing, but you forget that other people might have good intentions but miscommunicate them, so try to be more forgiving, Libra.
  • Scorpio: You keep people in your life that don't add any value to it because you're afraid of being alone, but you need to understand that it's okay to drop negative people because it's better to be alone and happy than to be with people who hurt you, Scorpio.
  • Sagittarius: You get so lost in your dream world that's in your head that you forget to appreciate what you have in life especially the little things because life isn't meant to have explosively happy moments, Sagittarius.
  • Capricorn: You need to show appreciation towards the people that care about you instead of ignoring them for someone who doesn't, people are getting tired of being taken for granted, Capricorn.
  • Aquarius: You're so nice to the people that disrespect you that they think it's okay to walk all over you, and some things are worth getting mad about, so allow yourself to be angry, Aquarius.
  • Pisces: You're so good at acting like you're always the victim and like you're an accepting person, but you need to step back into reality because people can see through your fake bullshit, Pisces.

you know, I know its taboo and shit to say but like … just because dialectical behavioral therapy has been shown to have a lot of good results doesn’t mean it works for /everyone/ with BPD or other mental illnesses DBT is used to treat.

like we can’t just keep faulting people individually for not getting better with certain systems of treatment? Which is why I don’t mind that so many people are interested in studying psychology, because there’s always more you can do and theres always new things that may help those who aren’t getting better with existing methods of treatment for mental illness. 

basically: u go you psychology nerds. create new shit.

In its 152-year history, Gallaudet University in Washington, D.C. never had a deaf female president — until a year ago. Roberta Cordano is the first deaf woman to lead the school.

Gallaudet is a liberal arts university devoted to deaf and hard-of-hearing students. Classes are taught in American Sign Language, and all students and faculty are required to know how to sign.

But president Cordano never attended a deaf school herself.

“I grew up during a period of time when it was believed that American Sign Language was what they called a monkey language,” Cordano says, speaking through an interpreter provided by Gallaudet. While the interpreter translates rapidly, Cordano whispers out faintly in English as she signs.
