only-real

People might be wondering what I have been doing since I made it to Korea. To put it lightly, it hasn’t been too great. But it’s all my American bank fault. I haven’t been able to eat for 3 days. -.- I had a lil bit of Korean cash and spent that getting small drinks from the vending machines in various places because it was better to be hydrated cus I’ve been walking around on and off campus for several hours. And also the jet lag is doing a great number on me. Each time I say I will only nap 1 hour… It turns into 7 hours and it gets too late and dark to do anything. Ughhh. But hopefully things get turned around.

i’ve been on the road for almost three weeks.

we’ve driven a little over 4,000 miles. i did my first hike through grizzly bear country- we spent two nights, three days in glacier national park. we bought bear mace, and befriended a guy named zach who just happens to be from long island who was working the front desk of the ‘many glacier hotel’.

we camped in the badlands of north dakota for two days, nat found a bisons jawbone down by the river. i stalked wild prairie dogs and called chipmunks- who scampered around my feet. we stayed with a friend from burning man in ohio, stopped to see a train-hopper we know from the nyc rave scene in a walmart parking lot. 

sunny seattle left us in the living room of an ex boyfriend, the living room of an old friend- who took us to his job and made us mixology-style cocktails. we drove south through oregon, watched the wildfires burn through the sides of mountains- the air heavy with smoke. 

with reno in our sights, and a short stop in california- we continued south east. 


burning man starts on monday. 

i’m almost home.

thommy au prompts and stuff based on the trailer:

-thomas gets a new job at that big mysterious house and doesn’t even know that jimmy happens to be working there because he’s been lying in letters about some fantastical life he wishes he had because he’s not even a first footman anymore, he’s below first footman. THE SHAME. oh my gosh imagine thomas being introduced the to staff and coming up on jimmy and jimmy’s faaaaace.

-the mysterious house is lady a’s-jimmy gets him a job there (he very begrudgingly started working where when he couldn’t get work anywhere else but hands off thanks, bedding her only leads to trouble). lady a sees where this is going when she sees jimmy light up whenever he talks about mr. barrow and when thomas starts working there they become her little snarky schemey confidantes…idk that would be kinda funny, like she’d ask them to spy on people all the time and steal letters of intrigue and such.

-thomas runs into philip somewhere and it’s not romantic but after so many years and a war the anger is gone. they have some good sex. philip tells him about a cute blond footman who was completely miserable but enjoyed philip’s mouth on his cock well enough who happened to mention thomas. SEVERAL times. philip was so intrigued he hired the blond but stopped banging him because the guy was so sulky it wasn’t worth it…
