  • Psychic: WTF
Stop tucking in your uniqueness, your strangeness, your difference, in doing so you conceal your essence, your gift, your magic, your power. Your comfort zone is that thing that makes you different, not the thing that makes you the same. There is no security or joy in hiding who you are, that’s pseudo freedom, it’s a sham, it’s a lie the world wants to convince you is your truth.
—  iammyss, let your freak flag fly, babe! 

“There is a difference between getting a partner and attracting a partner. Getting implies that our hooks work; attracting means that our light is bright and appears like a beacon to one who is meant to see it.

When we attract love by an intensified connection to the spirit inside, we take responsibility for the energy around us, harmonizing it in such a way that those who come forward—who we sense are meant to be with us—connect with us out of similarly pure intent.” - Marianne Williamson

Advisor: …So, you’re not seeking a degree?

Me: Nope!

Advisor: You’re going back to school for fun?

Me: Basically!

Advisor: And what made you choose these classes?

Me: Well, I’ve always wanted to learn French, ever since I was a little kid. I grew up in Arizona so in high school they forced you to learn Spanish. French is kind of a bucket-list type of thing.

Advisor: Uh-huh. And the writing classes?

Me: I just want to improve my writing. *pause for proper comedic timing* So I can improve my fan fiction.

Advisor: Your what?

Me: Fan fiction.





Advisor: So did you want to create a payment plan or pay all at once?

the tumblerer formerly known as coyotesqrl asked me to post this birthday tribute to @kfedup and I am happy to do so. 

There is disagreement amongst talmudic scholars regarding the timing of the Jubilee year. Some take it to be the seventh sabbatical; some take it to be the year following the seventh sabbatical. I tend to be in the former camp, mostly because it seems unlikely my ancestors would have let their fields lie fallow for two years in a row. So depending on which camp’s interpretation you believe, either the 49th or 50th year is the Jubilee.

The 49th year, of course, is that span of days from one’s 48th birthday through their 49th; the 50th, it then follows, is the year that begins by blowing out 49 candles and ends after climbing the decade wall.


I don’t know about you, but I’ve five fingers upon my dexter hand and, thanks to bilateral symmetry, five upon its sinister twin. My number system is base 10 as is yours (unless you are a replicant; are you a replicant?). “Seven sevens” might have been significant to a desert-dwelling people with a jones for numerology, particularly a people beset by foes on all sides, a desert-dwelling people who would take to the sword to defend their home; however, I think in tens.

Five tens is a midpoint, a mean, a middle. It is a peak and a center and a summit climbed. Five tens is significant.

Five tens is also full of uncertainty and risk and choices. It is even odds, fitty-fitty, a coin toss. Five tens is that moment the house doesn’t have you over a barrel, but you might yet lose.


Maybe the rabbis who say the Jubilee is the seventh sabbatical are right; maybe the rabbis who say it is the subsequent year are right. But I say fifty is something more, something above and beyond. I say fifty is a universal reset, a cosmic coin flip.


Fifty is cool. It’s the new forty which, Madison Avenue assures me, is the new thirty. So fifty is the new thirty by the transitive property. Fifty is also FIFTY, which thirty is most definitively not.

I remember thirty: flirty and foolish and flippant and full of frippery. Fifty is thrifty and thoughtful and thick with meaning and wisdom.


It’s a good age. It’s a good year. It’s a good time to be hale and hearty and wise and alive.

Enjoy your Jubilee my dearest. Let your fields lie fallow (or, frankly, till them till it hurts). Free your slaves. Blow your horn. Let your freak flag fly. Live your life boisterously and recklessly and crazily and kindly and well. Flip a lot of coins and let the cosmos guide you; the house doesn’t have an advantage over you any longer.

Dear Diary,

Andrew Lincoln continues to sweep me off my feet(and I ain’t that light), with his sweeping declarations about Richonne. I have realized now that my life is ruined. My days and nights are dedicated to Richonne happiness. No ship will ever compare(They improvised some of the van scene. Yeah, that 7x12 van scene. Somebody revive my limp corpse).

I often find myself questioning others with questions like, “When will your otp ever? When will you have a Captain so dedicated to S.S. Richonne? How am I so lucky? 

Then I remember, this was meant to be. The wait and journey that I trekked on with my ship through cold stares, murky walker waters, messy hairstylists who dabbled in ugly owl art, was worth it’s weight in gold. I am blessed. More blessed than the richest man.

My Captain, My Captain…you shall never disappoint me. I see you will be going down with your ship, and that in itself is admirable. I am forever apart of your crew. I humbly serve S.S. Richonne(Let your freak flags fly).

I’m just over the moon right now. 

Until the next time El Capitan speaks.

NAMJOON:  I think he’d be down to clown, no doubt. You being another ‘fabled’ creature would be a big plus in his mind because you kinda understand what it means to be so different. I bet he’d also be interested in learning a bit of magic too ;)

YOONGI: Shit, he can be your broomstick and you can ride him. Yoongi wouldn’t really care what you are, I feel, as long as you get him and he gets you, you’re set.

HOSEOK: Hoseok would be low-key hyped once he found out. He’d have all kinds of questions for you and wouldn’t mind answering yours at all. He’d feel closer to you knowing that you were as different as he was.

SEOKJIN: He might be a tad bit hesitant, just because of the witch stereotypes, but I think he’d get over it fast. He’d know the struggles of being looked at like a monster and I think this would help him connect with you on a deeper level

JIMIN: I think he’d be so smitten, it would take him forever to even notice. Once he did, I don’t think he’d care. If anything, it might make him love you more since he could be himself around you

TAEHYUNG: Oh hell yeah, he’d be turnt for that shit. Tae’s all about letting your freak flag fly, and you being a ‘monster’ just like him would get him so into you

JUNGKOOK: Like Seokjin, he might be a bit scared. He’d never encountered a witch before, and the only other magical creature he’d run into was a werewolf, and that didn’t end well. Once he actually approached you and got to know you, he’d open himself up more
