my favourite show in the world

mental health day 17

I woke up this morning feeling good, and i actually went down stairs and sat with mum and dad for a few hours.
I felt in a good place in a happy place, best I have felt in a while…well…since i was with Ally and Midnight.
I was able to smile and laugh when mum talked to me or if I played with the dog I wondered if I had over reacted and it had just been a moment of sadness and was I wasting the doctors and councillors time.

Afterwards though…I went down again I just went upstairs meaning to do my room, but i just lay on my bed and didn’t move for three or four hours, just lay there not wanting to move or watch tv or listen to music or play on my ps3 or read a book…nothing I just felt dead inside and like I was on the inside looking in like the world was a TV show.
I put one of my Favourite shows on ‘once upon a time’ but I wasn’t really watching if that makes sense it was just…on…

I did watch one of my favourite youtubers, @therealjacksepticeye, and he give me a light blub moment.
He has been playing a game called a night in the woods and he was talking about one on the characters in the game and he talked about how he thought they had  depersonalization disorder and the way he talked about it and described it, it was like how I feel at the moment and what is going on in my head right now and like the asexuality and autism the penny dropped, i’m not saying this is what I have or that i’m self diagnosing but at least I have a clue or something to take to the doctor/Councillor and that has given me something to work with, so not that Jack with ever see this but thank you, you have given me hope and something to work with

I found this moment quite symbolic as I stumbled across these two girls intertwined with each other, hiding underneath a Pride rainbow flag as they shared a private moment together. In a way it shows how they feel protected underneath the rainbow, free from prejudice and labelling. In another light it could show them hiding from the world underneath what they find safe, but either way I think this is my favourite photo from London Pride, 2015.

You are the first day of sunshine after weeks full of rain, heart touching poetry, nail-biting crime thrillers, the newest episode of my favourite show, that first chords after the band enters the stage, watching strangers passing by, spending hours and hours in an antique book shop, museums of art, that rush of adrenaline when you did something you’d always been afraid of, sleeping in after exam period, getting out of your comfort zone and experiencing a whole new level of life, poetry slams, citrus tea, the first snow of the year, finally seeing the floor again after tidying up, high quality fanfiction, hot midsummer nights by the river and foreign cities.

This really sweet lucky person won a meet and greet in Australia. Here’s her story:

“I remember you” those were the first words Brendon said to me when he walked into the room. I was at work when I found out I had won meet and greet with my favourite band in the entire world. A band I have been supporting for 12 years of my life and when he walked into the room I have never felt more happiness. I spent almost 20 minutes with him, showing him the 2 Panic! tattoos I have, talking about the album, the tour, his dogs, my dogs, the drunk history of fall out boy, the spongebob musical, literally everything. He was so kind and so grateful and I’ve never felt more honoured to support a musician that cares so much about his fans, I will never be able to thank him enough.

Some BuckyNat Feels

So I’m rereading the brilliant, fantastic, amazing comic that is Edmonson/Noto’s 2014 Black Widow (one of my favourite comics series ever) and I just wanted to gush about how in issue #14, at one of her most frustrated and lowest points, my beautiful BAMF Natasha notes that she is exceptional and alone in the world, that she’s an outsider who can’t belong in it, and then in the very next issue Bucky shows up to serve a giant slice of dramatic irony because if there’s anyone who feels exactly the same about life, the universe and everything, it’s that beautiful BAMF of a man. 

It just makes me FEEL things. So many things. Both of these characters prefer to be alone, but at the same time they’re also desperately, terribly, heart-wrenchingly lonely. And the only time they’ve ever been able to successfully balance being who they truly are (lone wolves driven by their guilt and need for atonement) with their desire to feel understood, connected and loved was when they were together. WHEN THEY WERE TOGETHER. 

I just don’t understand how people don’t love these two as a couple, especially in the comics. They never allowed their relationship to inhibit who they were. All they did was love and support each other. 

I HAVE SO MANY BUCKYNAT FEELS RIGHT NOW YOU DON’T EVEN KNOW. I CAN’T WAIT FOR BLACK WIDOW #9.

“When I was 5-8 years old, I’d go to Disney World EVERY summer, and I LOVED the Hunchback Of Notre Dame play. My all-time favourite Disney character was Clopin. I had a favourite Clopin in that show, and the last year I got to go, I wanted his autograph on a picture my mom had gotten blown up for me.However, he wasn’t in the show that day, and I got really upset, but my mom found one of the Cast Members and asked about him. He smiled and said he was at the park, and called him over to where we were. The guy went through the trouble of dressing up in the full costume to sign his autograph for me.To this day, Disney World is one of my favourite places to BE, and Clopin is STILL my all-time favourite Disney character.”

I have to make a post about this ♥

When 24K were on Sound K a few days ago my friend Maddie sent in a msg asking if Jeonguk could name my new kitten for me and when he read my name he started talking about how he knows who I am, he even remembered which country I’m from I was so surprised and I’m still so shocked about it
“Ah Jodie! I know Jodie”
He pronounces my name like Joodie haha I think it’s really cute though 

Anyway after a bit he chose the name Catuk lol he’s so precious he literally combined the word cat with his own name 

So I tweeted him to show him a pic of the kitten he named and he actually faved it ♥

Jeonguk is seriously my favourite person in the entire world, I love him soso much 

The Irish mythology in Berserk is to die for.

One of the most underappreciated things in the world is most certainly Irish mythology and folklore and to see it showing up in one of my favourite manga of all time is a dream come true. lemme break it down.

1. skellig island

heres a picture of skellig island, right well guess what? Skellig is most certainly named after the skellig Islands of ireland. The Skellig Islands are a pair of rocky islands of whick Skellig Michael is most famous. It was settled by christian monks and to this day is dotted with the remains of cells and stone buildings

Also you’ll notice the spiral covered rocks well those spiral patterns were synonymous with celtic tradition. Its called the triskele and it was a major part of celtic paganism and celtic christianity where it could represent the trinity.

This is a picture of the triskele in Newgrange tomb in Ireland, fun fact Newgrange predates the pyramids of Giza by several centuries. (3200 bce).

2. fairies and Danann

One of the major parts of Irish folk-history are the five invasions. These invasions describe the major settlements of people onto Ireland and were passed on orally before being transcribed by christian monks. In mythology the fourth invasion was led by the Tuatha dé Danann, who became the Gaelic Irish pantheon. Instantly you can see the connection, the namesake of all the gods of Ireland is a character in berserk.

Ireland also has an extensive Fairy culture, now when you hear fairy you might imagine the likes of Tinkerbell from peter pan but in Irish folklore almost all of the supernatural spirits were called fairies. There were exstensive amounts of warding techniques and some families continued using them as late as the 50s and 60s. creatures such as the Dullahan, leprechauns, changelings and Banshee all count as Irish fairies, The Tuatha Dé Danann are also counted as faries and its believed that when the monks of ireland wrote of Fairy kings or queens they’d actually be writing about God of Irish mythology and simply refused to call them gods.

3.The Otherworld

Berserk features a lot of extra-planar shenanigans and the witch’s village on Skellig is comparable to the gaelic concept of otherworld. The people who lived in Otherworld included the Aos Sí (meaning people of the mounds), they were said to live in bountiful kingdoms under the hills of Ireland. In these kingdoms time always worked differently, in tales such as Oisín i dTír na nÓg, a couple of years in the land of youth would be a couple of centuries in Ireland, but I’m familiar with a tale where a man is taken prisoner into the underground until he is busted out. when he returns he has a basket of harvest fruits because he had been in otherworld for half a year, but he returns to his Halloween party with none the wiser as to why he was gone for a while.
