real adult feelings

Journeyman - Chapter 27

“I don’t want to see people!”

I wearily rubbed my temples. “Story of my life.”

It was Sunday and, more importantly, the morning after my wooing of Harry. I wanted nothing more than to be nestled up beside his warm body, a tattooed arm keeping me firmly pressed against him. Instead I was trying to convince a two year old that starting preschool tomorrow was not the end of the world. Neither of us were impressed.

New episode time!

Season 3, Episode 3 - “Authentic Grown-Up Emotions”

Featuring Douglas Gale and Aaron FIshbein

the struggle (x)

headcanon time because I’m very attached to kira nerys being a lesbian and I gotta fix canon:

as we all know, going the “secret sexual tension” route instead of the “canon happy poly family” route with kira and miles was A Mistake BUT I like to think that kira is just really, really terrible at knowing when she’s genuinely attracted to people. (am I projecting? yes. am I going to believe it anyway? also yes.) like she /likes/ miles - he’s gruff and no-nonsense and imminently practical in much the same way that she is. they’ve both been Through Some Shit and while miles’s manner of Dealing with it is fundamentally different from hers (he uh doesn’t), they’re both the sort of people that would enjoy siting in Quark’s together with a drink and not talking for a solid 20 minutes. they’re both scarred veterans of war, against the same enemy even, who have been forced to come to terms with the fact that the galaxy has many more shades of gray than they’d like to admit.

she’s already carrying his baby when it turns out that miles gives great massages and is generally pretty physically affectionate and she thinks “oh. I must be attracted to him.” no darling. no you aren’t. (for his part, miles /is/ attracted to kira exactly as he thinks he is because a. he’s attracted to women and b. nana visitor but despite the fact that miles is sometimes a clod he is perfectly capable of having female friends and if kira told him she wasn’t interested he wouldn’t be weird or gross about it and besides, he genuinely likes kira for all the reasons mentioned above).

Any advice for future college students, oh wise one?

I’m not very wise but I can pretend to be for a bit!

As for college advice, I may be a little reckless in saying some of this but here I go anyway.

Transitioning from high school to college is kinda like going from a parking lot to a monster truck rally. You can count on structure in public school ad nauseam but you start to miss it in college when you realize that all that’s keeping you from an endless abyss of unemployment is your drive to sign up for classes and choose a major. For some, this realization tempts them into skipping classes and eventually wasting a lot of money failing. For others, this is the most liberating experience of their lives and gives them more motivation to become an independent adult. Or if you’re like me, you’ll try a little of both sides and end up in the middle. 

In the beginning, I was really worried college was going to be like high school but even harder and I wouldn’t be able to catch up. I was extremely tense about signing up for the “right” classes and doing everything “right” because this was the beginning of my adult life. But the more I tested my boundaries, the more I realized that there were so few. For example, the first week of college is “Syllabus Week” where the professors go over how the class will go, textbook stuff, and so on. Some people skip this week entirely since often the the syllabus is online and most professors don’t give assignments yet. But I recommend going of course. And attendance in general is completely different than high school because every professor has their own rules and figure if you can pass the test then that’s what matters. I was shocked at first when classmates would just get up in the middle of class and leave, sometimes to get a snack and sometimes just to go home. You pay for the classes so it’s up to you what you wanna do.

But of course with all this power comes responsibility. Once I realized that I could choose to skip days and leave early, I quickly started to abuse this freedom. And as a result, I ended up skipping a very important day that an assignment worth 30% my grade was due. Many regrets were had and even though I still passed the class, I worked my butt off studying for that final exam. Even someone like me who prides herself in following rules and being prepared can fall into this trap, so just make sure to plan your laziness. Also, remember to work smart, not hard. This isn’t about who can read the entire textbook but instead who can allocate their time by focusing on what’s important. You’re gonna have 3 papers due at once suddenly and you’re gonna have to decide which one is worth the most on the syllabus and just pray the rest get done. But every college student is making sacrifices and weighing options, so you wont be alone. There are great study resources as well so take advantage of them and visit the library. I hang out there all the time to just be in a quiet place for awhile. You’re going to be the one to choose your pace and choose your place this time. Deciding what’s important, allocating time, balancing your life: this is the real adult world.

I feel like I’m only beginning but I’ll wrap up this essay with some bullet points…

  • Don’t take it too seriously, you know what you’re needs are
  • Don’t take it too lightly, you can’t just sleep all day either
  • Your syllabus tells you what assignments to pay attention to
  • You pay for this class, remember that
  • Work smart not hard, don’t overdo it
  • You can’t do everything, start with what’s important
  • You have to be your own mom now

Really sorry for the long post but I wanted to express my own journey in case someone was going through a similar thing! You’re gonna find your own way, so just get out there and start!

HD version in the process of being converted if you want to wait for that. Hope you enjoy. It’s a little rough around the edges but keep in mind it’s the pilot episode and we’re still finding our footing. Thanks for waiting!

At long last the conclusion to the two-part season 2 premiere is up.

No but for real:

“Suicide Squad” was a decent movie - the plot was eghhh, but I had fun and loved seeing these characters on the big screen. I wish they had gone with another storyline and made it R though… The cast was on point, and I had major feels. “Assault on Arkham” is a much better Suicide Squad film tho, imma be real; it feels more adult than this film. I recommend seeing it if you’re a DC fan, it for sure don’t feel like a ‘superhero’ franchise film. It’s its own thing, so let it be.

Go buy the soundtrack tho 👌🏼💕


Also I demand more Joker and Harley in the directors cut. They’re chemistry was great and it was interesting seeing this films take on “Mad Love”.
