literally crushed

The REAL reason I get up and run the mountains before 3:30 a.m.
Moi at an aid station during a 100 mile endurance race. It was one of those races where everything went sideways. I had to dig deep, flush my ego, forget the race plan and just run to beat the cutoff time. @instructor144 uses a great term “dark night of the soul.” At 3 am, tired, alone on the trail, back of the pack and desperately wanting to fucking quit, the mind goes to very dark places and at moments it’s literally soul crushing. But, just like in life, I trudged on. For a type-A, driven, perfectionist, this race ended as a taste of heaven and Hell….
I finished. I beat the cutoff. I was DFL (Dead Fucking Last) by 1 minute and 23 seconds of a 30 hour cutoff time.
I keep this pic to remember why I don’t crawl back into bed.
Here’s the new math you need to know for those days in your life:
DFL>DNF>>>DNS
Dead Fucking Last is greater than Did Not Finish which is far greater than Did Not Start 👣👣👣👣👣👣

Okay, so I see you're providing advice about certain relationship stuff. I need advice about how you know if you like someone? I never in my life can remember having a hardcore crush or liking someone and I think I have a crush (???) but I don't know. Please help me old wise one (you don't have to answer if you don't want to)

for me, i hit feelings hard and i know right away, but to describe it, its literally lance with his crush on allura. he is the perfect example of having a c r u s h on someone. you get all blushy and shit. you think they’re pretty and cool and you stutter almost every time you say something to/about them. basically you like someone, but you arent sure if you love them yet. (most of the time a crush is just a crush but sometimes stronger feelings can occur. i never had a crush on bec i kinda just knew i loved her so i mean.)

I always found it funny and kinda cute that Keith was so desperate to get Lance out of the pod before he was fully conscious and healed 

But then I thought, what exactly did he think was going to happen if he opened the pod like that or if Allura didn’t stop him, considering he knew Lance was still unconscious. I know he wanted to talk to him since they just had their bonding moment, but I mean he’s not even awake, he would have just literally fell over and crushed Pidge LOOL

Then episode one came back to mind, when Allura’s pod opened and she was still slightly unconscious and unstable but calling out to her dad so she fell over, but Lance caught her in his arms before she could get hurt

AND KEITH WAS RIGHT THERE WHEN IT HAPPENED

TRY AND TELL ME KEITH DIDN’T LITERALLY TRY AND OPEN LANCE’S POD WHILE HE WAS UNCONSCIOUS JUST SO THAT HE COULD FALL FORWARD INTO HIS ARMS AND THAT’S WHY HE WAS SO POUTY ABOUT IT BECAUSE HE DIDN’T GET HIS WAY

NOT TO MENTION HE LITERALLY STAYED BY THE POD FOR EIGHT YEARS BEFORE GOING TO JOIN THE OTHERS TOO, MOST LIKELY WAITING FOR LANCE TO COME OUT ALL SHAKY AND UNSTABLE SO HE COULD HOLD HIM UP

IM SCREAMING

I think baby boomers’ tendency to get very mad at slow service goes hand in hand with their dislike of smart phones. Every situation I’ve been in where service is slow? I just whip out my phone and browse apps for the extra 30 seconds. It’s not a big deal. Meanwhile Landline Howard behind me in line who’s never held a smartphone in his life is bored with nothing to occupy his time so he yells at minimum wage workers instead.
