no no no stop it brain

Why encourage girls to ~question their gender identity when you could just make it known to them that girls can do whatever the fuck they want? Stop basing your worldview off of dead French pedophiles and just use your fucking brain for half a second and understand how vile this bullshit is oh my god

Somebody once told me the world is gonna roll me
I ain’t the sharpest tool in the shed
She was looking kind of dumb with her finger and her thumb
In the shape of an “L” on her forehead

Well, the years start coming and they don’t stop coming
Fed to the rules and I hit the ground running
Didn’t make sense not to live for fun
Your brain gets smart but your head gets dumb

So much to do, so much to see
So what’s wrong with taking the back streets?
You’ll never know if you don’t go
You’ll never shine if you don’t glow

[Chorus:]
Hey, now, you’re an All Star, get your game on, go play
Hey, now, you’re a Rock Star, get the show on, get paid
And all that glitters is gold
Only shooting stars break the mold

It’s a cool place and they say it gets colder
You’re bundled up now wait ‘til you get older
But the meteor men beg to differ
Judging by the hole in the satellite picture

The ice we skate is getting pretty thin
The water’s getting warm so you might as well swim
My world’s on fire. How about yours?
That’s the way I like it and I’ll never get bored.

[Chorus 2x]

Somebody once asked could I spare some change for gas
I need to get myself away from this place
I said yep, what a concept
I could use a little fuel myself
And we could all use a little change

Well, the years start coming and they don’t stop coming
Fed to the rules and I hit the ground running
Didn’t make sense not to live for fun
Your brain gets smart but your head gets dumb

So much to do, so much to see
So what’s wrong with taking the back streets?
You’ll never know if you don’t go
You’ll never shine if you don’t glow.

[Chorus]

And all that glitters is gold
Only shooting stars break the mold

Widget update

Widget seems to be a lot more comfortable today. The moment I uncovered the cage (which was super nerve-wracking today, since my brain was determined to imagine the worst possible scenarios) both birds chirped and headed straight to their food pots like they usually do. He’s also hopping around the cage happily, much more confident on his feet/wings, and he’s not sluggish at all. Right now he’s in his favourite spot, singing loudly.

I’m not letting him out of the cage yet, as I don’t want him to use his wings too soon (other than for balance when he hops around the cage, which I can’t really stop him doing if he feels happy to do so). Pixel is not impressed, as this means he can’t come out either. Widget goes berserk if he’s left behind in the cage, and I don’t want him to exert himself. I’ve put extra toys and plenty of treats in though!

So… so far so good! 

Also, thanks everyone for your supportive messages about your own experiences with things like this. I was a anxiety filled mess yesterday, and reading your experiences has calmed me a lot!

Femininity is Artificial

The amount of cognitive dissonance in women who believe that women are naturally feminine and just better suited to domestic roles yet still somehow equal in value to men dominating everything else on this planet is just fucking mind boggling!

Like how can you genuinely sit there and go, “yeah I think women are naturally suited to be domestic care givers and men are good at everything else! And somehow this is an equal distribution of roles which is totally fair!

It just reveals how low their opinions are of women, that they think women have a natural place cleaning up baby poop while men belong to leading world government and exploring space and what not.

They view men as ruled primarily by the human brain, but view women as ruled primarily by our uterus.

This is a lie which men sell to women, a lie that our role as subservient wives and mothers is somehow “just as important” as everything men assign to themselves.

Stop buying in to the lie that women are naturally feminine.

We are human beings, and femininity is an insult to our existence.

Concept: Police Trains

Okay, so as we were pulling up alongside one in the bus, my brain went, “Wow, it’s probably really fucking hard to steal a train.”

Later, as we were (finally) driving home, I pointed this out to the parental unit.

They responded that at least you wouldn’t be hard to catch, and said, “What about police trains, though?”

It devolved from there. Bc, imagine it, a train with police sirens chasing after another train, on the same track, shouting through a bullhorn for the one ahead to just stop and pull over.

Other trains being told to pull over to let the police train pass, but they can’t bc it’s all the same track.

Officers hanging out the car to keep an eye on suspects, then arresting themselves for breaching train safety laws.

And, if you needed to get after them while the police train was busy? Let’s get the police motorbike equivalent… that’s right, one of these:


Imagine: Flashing lights, police colours and everything… “Wee-woo, pull over the train, punk”

[PSA: they are known as handcars, pump trolleys, pump cars, jiggers, kalamazoos or draisines.  Which makes it ten times funnier, tbh.]

You're one of my fav writers. Your stories are always so beautiful. And I really appreciate the fact that you don't let ur bitterness for canon ian transcend too much to ur writing, like i've seen it a lot of fics. It's refreshing and i love u

Originally posted by myfavesstuff

Hello friend, thank you so much! This really means the world to me. It’s incredibly sweet of you to stop by and let me know how you feel ❤

For me, it’s very important to differentiate between whatever bitterness I feel towards the decisions of the show, and how I feel about Ian’s choices as a character. I feel like he’s such a fascinating character to me because he’s very private and unwilling to show his cards, which means that as a viewer I’m given a lot of room to interpret his actions and exercise my emphatic brain-muscles to imagine what he’s going through. So, at least for me, the times he doesn’t work on the show is when the internal logic of the script and narrative doesn’t work. The breakup in season 5 doesn’t work because there’s no connection between it and the five seasons preceding it, for example. I have no bitterness towards Ian for breaking up with Mickey, I think he’s well within his rights to do that considering everything going on with him, but it’s written in a really dismissive and illogical way, and the scene only makes sense when you look at the show as a production, rather than as a narrative. A character had to be written out, so they wrote him out. This makes me very bitter, but I refuse to blame Ian for it.

The same thing more or less stands when it comes to Caleb and Trevor. I can’t watch season 6 and 7, largely because my main interest in the show was Ian (and subsequently Mickey) and every scene he has with Caleb and Trevor make me CRINGE. When I think about his storylines logically, I honestly don’t mind the fact that Ian ends up in bad relationships with manipulative dickheads (one of the cheating variety and one plain) because it fits into a logical narrative where he’s hurting from losing someone he really truly loves and with whom he once imagined spending his life. He doesn’t like being alone and he’s always kinda been okay with his partners being dickheads. Fine. I’d rather he waste some time with insignificant place-holders than honestly trying to move on and earnestly fall in love with someone new (especially when they’re DICKHEADS with no proper characterization or last names, like wtf). 

What makes me bitter is the general feeling that the writers and producers of the show genuinely don’t give a fuck about Ian, that they continuously forget about him when they put “all” the Gallaghers in a room, that they think they don’t have to do any logical or emotional groundwork for his choices when it comes to his health or his relationships. Are we supposed to think he had feelings for Caleb and Trevor? I still don’t know! What does ‘this isn’t me anymore’ mean? I have no flurking clue.

I’m bitter about the show, but I’ll never be bitter about Ian. He deserves to fuck up and get better and make choices for himself just as much as anyone. I just wish the writers and producers of the show gave enough of a shit about him allow him some kind of emotional continuity or, you know. Screen time.

Sorry about the long rant you didn’t ask for! :D I’ve been thinking extra hard about Ian while writing this thing, and it’s been a while since I embarrassed myself vented publicly about this stuff. ❤

anonymous asked:

do you ever have doubts whether Angrboda cares for you or whether it's just wishful thinking on your part? I'm asking because this is an endless trouble for me with Hel >.<

Hah, almost every day admittedly. It’s been a long hard battle with my brain to make it stop being as awful. It doesn’t help that I have emotional impermanence issues. That means my brain basically stops believing emotions exist unless the other person is there actively showing they do. It’s a real fucking pain and it’s difficult to overcome but here’s some tips I’ve found that work:

- What are the chances of the entity wasting time repeating the same reassurances? They have better things to do than waste their time on someone they don’t care about. 

- I make offerings and do other things for them. Even if they don’t like me to the extent my brain wishes, they probably still care about me a smidgen for giving them things they need and want.

- What are the chances of it being random signals? What are the chances of this all being random strands I’ve woven into something consistent? Or have I been given consistent reasons and messages?

These are the three things I rely on when having a panic over this particular issue. I hope they help you too :>

it’s a month into the semester and all of the energy i had for school is gone. i’m checking my course website every day and doing work almost every day, but i’m still missing things (like going to class once!). any time that i try to do more future-directed planning, it’s like my brain screams at the effort. i’m trying to get on a stimulant, but my doctors keep dancing around it. i’m floundering for the first time since my ADHD dx, so i know Why i’m doing this, but don’t know how to fix it.

I’ve been falling behind in my class,and it’s making me really upset. There was this project we were supposed to be working on in class for the past couple months, it was one were we were supposed to work on using our own time but I forgot about it and it’s due next month for the science fair. I don’t remember what I was doing, and my mom thinks it’s so easy to just work on it but I don’t remember. It’s making me really sad and I just don’t know what to do, or how to talk to my teacher about it.

bulbas4ur’s Submission:

Not exactly about ADHD itself, but I’m trying to come to terms with the fact that I made a lot of mistakes with my education before getting treatment. I went from failing half my credits during Spring 2016 to getting As on all of my tests so far this semester, but I still have a relatively low GPA. I’m also in a lot of student debt because I wasn’t as smart with my money as I could’ve been. Is there anything I can do to fix or at least feel better about these mistakes?

anonymous asked:

I have fairly severe ADHD and I'm constantly finding myself spacing out and then suddenly realizing it's like 3 hours later Is this normal and how do I make it stop? I don't have time for this

The degree to which people and ADHDers in particular space out varies from person to person, so you can’t really say it’s normal or abnormal. The first thing that comes to mind is setting alarms at regular intervals, maybe every 20 or 30 minutes (or however long works best for you). This way, if you do space out, it won’t be too long before an alarm rings and snaps you out of it. You could use a phone for this, or a watch that you can program regular alarms into. Alternately, if you’re around other people that you feel comfortable with, you could ask them to gently bring you back if they notice you spacing out. 

I’m not exactly sure of how to make it stop. It is at least partially caused by our brain anatomy, so we don’t have 100% control over it. I’d suggest starting to pay more attention to what you’re thinking about (yes, I realize this is exactly the problem us ADHDers have). By this I mean making a habit out of noticing your thought process, so that if you do space out, you’ll notice. Something like “what am I thinking about right now?” This will probably take a lot of practice, but it might be worth it to start doing that as often as you can, and then hopefully in the long run you’ll be able to notice when you’ve spaced out.

Followers, any tips?

adhd has a lot of overlapping symptoms with autism doesnt it?

i think so yeah. like they diverge in places but they have a lot in common, like stimming and sensory overload. i’m not sure how that pertains to doing the same things over and over again but in an adhd context it might have to do with hyperfixation? which ig is like the adhd version of a special interest, when you like something you Really like it and it’s what your brain defaults to when it’s not thinking about something else. hyperfixations switch around a lot more than i assume special interests do, though i can’t say for sure – i stay hyperfixated on stuff until something more interesting comes along, but then whenever it’s brought up again i physically can’t stop thinking about it for a while

15-minute "masterpieces" prompt :)

Hi there :)

No idea if this will work for you, but here’s my prompt: Charming + razor

(I’m feeling slightly mischievous today *g*)


Always happy to write some Charming. Thanks for the prompt @bimothecurious !

As always, my “15-minute Masterpiece” criteria are: writing for at least 15 minutes, light editing, no beta. Just me and words coming out of my brain.)

Summary: Shaving is not David’s forte.


On Edge

David winced, hissing at the sharp pain blooming beneath the curve of his jaw. He quickly picked up the cloth hanging on the edge of the basin and pressed it to the cut on his neck, stopping the trickle of blood from landing on his shirt. Again.

The number of shirts in his wardrobe without bloodstains was shrinking.

He and Snow—along with the rest of Storybrooke minus Emma and Henry—had been back in the Enchanted Forest for a month thanks to Pan’s undone curse. As much as he loved his original home, he also loved several of the conveniences of Storybrooke. Namely his electric razor. He would seriously consider making a deal with Rumplestiltskin to feel the hum of it in his hand if only the bastard wasn’t dead.
