really stupid problems

  • random person: how do YOU write romantic scenes?
  • me: what
  • random person: like, you've never kissed someone or been in love. how is it possible you describe it in your writing, then?
  • me: ...
  • me: how can JK Rowling describe Hogwarts if she's never been there?

  • me: how can George RR Martin describe the death of every single one of his characters if he hasn't died?
  • me: how can JRR Tolkien describe what an elf looks like when he's never seen one?

When you’re close to finishing a new part of your series and your brain decides its a good time to come up with a great idea which you could totally use but your super conflicted about it ‘cause it’s gonna alter your plan for the rest of the series but you want to do it.

The eternal dilemma: I really want to get in my car and blast some good ol’ 90s alt and grunge rock music while I drive around to get my brain to relax and let the story ideas start coming, because that usually works really really well…

However.

However parking in this town sucks major ass.  If I leave now, I’ll spend more time circling the blocks than actually driving to find a goddamn parking spot afterwards.  At which point I’ll either end up blocking a driveway or sleeping in my car as I wait for someone to yell at me to move it the hell outta the way.

*sigh*

IT ISN'T YOURS
  • Me: *puts latte on bar*
  • Me: I have a double tall latte
  • Customer: Excuse me, but I ordered an iced americano
  • Me: ...no, don't worry. I haven't made that one yet. This one isn't yours.
  • Customer: That's fine, but I didn't order this.
  • Me: I'm making your americano right now. The double tall latte is someone else's drink.
  • Customer: I don't have time for you to remake it, it's fine.
  • Customer: *takes latte and leaves*
  • Me: ¯\(°_o)/¯

sometimes I get really frustrated with makeup ‘cause it’s like ‘to cover circles under your eyes use a concealer lighter than your regular concealer’ and I am already using the lightest concealer I can find, most brands don’t stock concealer pale enough for me.

But then also I think about it and it’s kinda ‘cry some more’ like… my problem is being to pale. Which is like an annoyance more than anything (I mean it makes it very hard to find foundation/concealer/that sort of shit, but it’s like… that’s my problem, right?)

….still it is annoying… and it makes finding tutorials a little difficult. Maybe if I was a more healthy person I wouldn’t have this problem…

It’s so frustrating not having anyone I can really talk to in depth about Sherlock in real life.
