really every smiley is an unmatched parenthesis, but thinking too much about that is probably not conducive to sound mental health

(: is it sweaty :)

anonymous asked:

How do I tell someone I'm non-binary in Japanese?

if you just want to say “i’m non-binary”, you could say:

日: (僕・私・自分は)Xジェンダーです。
jp: (boku / watashi / jibun wa) x-jendaa desu.
en: i’m non-binary.

note that the first part of the sentence is in parenthesis because in Japanese it’s common to drop the subject of the sentence, even though that isn’t the case in English.

that said, if you want to be more specific (and if any of these happen to describe you), you could also say something like:

日: (僕・私・自分は) 無性です。
jp: (boku / watashi / jibun wa) musei desu.
en: i’m genderless / agender.

日: (僕・私・自分は) 中性です。
jp: (boku / watashi / jibun wa) chuusei desu.
en: i’m gender neutral /  an androgyne.

日: (僕・私・自分は) 両性です。
jp: (boku / watashi / jibun wa) ryousei desu.
en: i’m bigender / ambigender.

日: (僕・私・自分は)不定性です。
jp: (boku / watashi / jibun wa) futeisei desu.
en: i’m genderfluid.

the above gender identities are relatively common among non-binary people in Japan. note that 中性 / chuusei can potentially translate into two different genders in English. i’d say it’s commonly used to mean androgyne within the non-binary community, but there’s also a strong association with gender neutrality because 中性的 / chuuseiteki is often used within society in general to mean unisex or gender neutral.

having said all that, just like when speaking English, the person you’re talking to may not be familiar with the above words. in that case, you might need or want to explain what being non-binary means for you.

日: (僕・私・自分は) 男性でも女性でもないです。
jp:  (boku / watashi / jibun wa) dansei demo josei demo nai desu.
en: i’m neither male nor female.

日: (僕・私・自分は) 男性でも女性でもなく、性別はないです。
jp: (boku / watashi / jibun wa) dansei demo josei demo naku, seibetsu wa nai desu.
en: i’m neither male nor female. i have no gender.

日: (僕・私・自分は)男性と女性の間の性です。
jp: (boku / watashi / jibun wa) dansei to josei no aida no sei desu.
en: my gender is in between male and female.

日: (僕・私・自分は) 男性でもあり女性でもある性です。
jp: (boku / watashi / jibun wa) dansei demo ari josei demo aru sei desu.
en: i’m both male and female.

jp: (boku / watashi / jibun wa) dansei demo josei demo naku, aru seibetsu no aida ni seijinin ga kawarimasu.
en: i’m neither male nor female, my gender identity changes from gender to gender.

日:(僕・私・自分は)男性でも女性でもなく、 いずれも全く関係ない性です。
jp: (boku / watashi / jibun wa) dansei demo josei demo naku, izuremo mattaku kankei nai sei desu.
en: i’m neither male nor female. my gender is completely unrelated to either of those genders.

……..and i totally took this relatively simple ask and ran away with it. oh well. hopefully it helps you, anon. either way, this post is officially my *points at this* post for future asks. lol

queen-of-parenthesis  asked:

So I want to get into clipping. but idk how I'd go at it. Is there a certain order I should to the songs in or something you'd recommend?

GOOD ASK!! it really depends on what kind of stuff you’re into, but I think their latest album Splendor & Misery is a good place to start (its my fave album by them so far). Here’s the synopsis:

like…………..i love them

OK SO u should listen to these songs in the order they appear on the album bc its a narrative (u should do that for all of their albums tbh.. im not like a Music Purist but if the band puts their tracks in a certain order they did it for a reason….also use headphones) here is the full album on youtube, tracklist in the description, which is nice bc it preserves the smooth transitions between the songs unlike spotify or bandcamp

If you like Splendor & Misery they have 3 other albums u can listen to:

Wriggle came out last summer, its.. it sounds like the album cover, basically. like a few of these songs legit fluster me to the point where i get embarrassed listening to them around other people LMAO.. anyway its a great lil EP that gets bonus points in my brain bc Cakes da Killa and Antwon have verses on it and i love them both

CLPPNG is from 2014, its the first album i heard by them & it is very close to my heart. I think Get Up is the song that made me a clipping fan, but tbh i like every track on this album save one. Fun Fact the title doesnt have i’s bc daveed didnt write any of it in first person which is pretty cool

Midcity is their first album its rad as shit and harsher/more ear-bleedy than their other ones and i just remembered as i typed that that THIS is actually the first album i heard by them, i listened to it when it first came out and didnt like it because my music taste in 2013 was like, sad indie men in the woods. anyway, get money

“We are travelers on a cosmic journey, stardust, swirling and dancing in the eddies and whirlpools of infinity. Life is eternal. We have stopped for a moment to encounter each other, to meet, to love, to share.This is a precious moment. It is a little parenthesis in eternity.”

School Witch Tip

I’m a witch that is currently in school so I keep my craft constantly surrounding me by devoting the front pocket of my backpack to all my witchy daily needs. 

Recommended Contents 
(uses in parenthesis)

Pendulum (easy access divination)

Tumbled Stones:
Changes with what I think I need daily.
-Blue Lace Agate (tranquility)
-Tiger’s Eye (confidence)
-Aventurine (luck)
-Hematite (grounding and protection)

Clam Shell (purification)
Changes once per month when I trade it for another full moon cleansed clam shell.

Lavender Essential Oil (tranquility, I’m a stressed-out college student)

Worry Stone
This is my most important item in my witchy pocket. My dad found it at a lake and gave it to me when I was really young and it hasn’t left my side for the most part. I don’t really know what it is made of but it is incredibly smooth after tumbling in that lake for so long. I hold it in my hand as pictured and run my thumb along it in counterclockwise motions to undo stress.

The keychain is from a company I really like and will be included in an upcoming post!

Clouded mind, heavy heart, boiling rage.

Marlene McKinnon was a mess of a person. What’s more is the amount of time she spent pretending she wasn’t. She would smile, quirk an eyebrow, and walk away ( allowing whoever to watch from behind ) from any potentially ugly situation. That is, until she was kidnapped. Since her safe ( operative word. ) return, Marlene had been visually a wreck. It was obvious, she knew, for all the times it had been pointed out. Two weeks and there were still bruises, scrapes, and cuts that refused to go away. She had taken to wearing long sleeves and pants ( thankfully it was still cold out, so no one had really inquired. Though they all knew anyway. It’s not like she was hiding anything ). The only thing that remained a secret was the hole in the center of her hand, no longer bleeding but refusing to take any sort of magical remedies. She had to get muggle stitches ( a real bitch they were, too ), and kept it wrapped at all times.

She hadn’t gotten a wand yet, simply because she hadn’t left the flat she shared with her twin since she moved in. It was official, though. She was going c r a z y. Losing her mind to the white walls and boy furniture. She even rearrange several times, Marcus always commenting on her restlessness with a drink upon his return from work. She hated his promotion, showing pride only in the paycheck that came from it. Obliviating people was hard. She could see ( and feel ) the toll it was taking on him every day.

That being said, she just had to get the fuck out of that blasted apartment.

Ah yes. But without a wand, there was no apparating to be had. So she took the train as close as she could get and walked a remaining six blocks to her destination. Agitated, tired, legs sore, she knocked rather aggressively on the appointed door. When it happened to swing open, she put her hands up in surrender. “I come in peace.” Marlene dropped her hands and crossed her arms across her body - a yellow bruise and what appeared to be burn marks immediately visible around her wrist as she tucked it under her opposite arm. “I’m taking applications for a smoke buddy, provided they bring the hash.” She tilted her head, giving her most brilliant grin for someone who looked dead. “Tell me you’re ready and willing.” She frowned, “No, no. Since you haven’t fucking contacted me since I was rescued from Hell, you don’t have a choice but to accept. So let me in.”
