Starting with how Bakugou has loved his quirk from the moment he got it cause it made him feel powerful and better, comparing it to how Kirishima started hating his own for a while cause the first thing he did with it was hurt himself. Going on with how Bakugou grew up being a bully and Kirishima fighting them - and how Bakugou was strong and feared while Kirishima was ignored and taken lightly because he was considered weak. How Bakugou’s whole understanding of the world/life was based on how he saw his place as above everyone else, how Kirishima always thought himself as lame and under all his peers. How Bakugou’s always had no problems yelling at the world his goal to become a hero and how he’s always had everyone’s support on it, how Kirishima’s always hidden it and how no one ever truly believed he could do it anyway
And more still, how Kirishima’s whole moral is based on Do Good and Be Fair while Bakugou’s just learning that caring is maybe something he should do now and again, how Kirishima wants to be a hero to save people and how Bakugou wants to be a hero to fight people, how Bakugou’s rarely seen without a scowl and how Kirishima’s default expression is a smile, how Kirishima’s an act-before-thinking person while Bakugou overthinks everything, Kirishima’s simple-minded and Bakugou’s only slightly short of a genius, how Kirishima’s friends with everyone and how Bakugou managing to get himself five friends is considerable a miracle
How Bakugou’s quirk is the perfect attack and Kirishima’s the perfect defense, and how Bakugou’s got the flashiest quirk in the class and Kirishima the least flashy one. How Bakugou’s pivotal moment in his growth right before entering UA was about getting attacked and being unable to save himself/being forced to accept help he didn’t want while Kirishima’s was seeing someone getting attacked and being unable to help them - and how those themes keep on repeating themselves for both of them through their whole personal arcs
The more I think about it the more these two are each other’s perfect opposite. They’re complementary. And they’re best friends.
April is National Gardening Month, which means it’s time to
pick out veggies to grow. Whether it’s a backyard garden, community garden or
simply potted herbs on a windowsill, there are plenty of ways to grow fresh produce
perfect for topping your favorite pasta dishes this summer.

@mitochondricity tagged me to SDS and I obliged with the first photo in this set. But I also noticed that I hadn’t posted for five days, so here is a round up.
SDS selfie: This morning I did a meditation off the Insight Timer app. It was called ‘Replenish’, 11 min. It was helpful. I could feel the morning sun on my eyelids; all the noises of the suburb coming to life; feeling part of this world, but focusing on breath, vitality, acknowledging & accepting bodily & emotional feelings & sensations. I was a bit fidgety to begin with but I settled down. Mitzy stood and soaked up the sun.
Food: A breakfast, a lunch and a dinner. I enjoyed some mango madness after my meditation this morning; a vege stack out at The Doric Street Cafe for lunch with a friend who needed some training and rehab advice; last night’s five-minute teryaki stir-fry beef - healthy, home-made, fresh food can be faster than the drive-through junk variety.
The day I had lunch out was a crazy one: I had clients presenting with radically high and low blood pressure; I had to comfort and reassure a couple who were feeling overwhelmed by their situation; another had some suspicious inflammation which I referred to medical staff; on the way home a very small child darted on to the road in front of me (my brakes are in fine working order but what a shock!); and around the corner I stopped to assist what may have been a homeless or disadvantaged man who had come off a bike and was cut up and unsteady. He declined first aid and set off on foot. I suggested to the women who had been first on scene to report it to the local police, as he might be known to them.
Dogs: I have spent a lot of time with the pooch this week because I haven’t been out and I haven’t ridden my bike since Easter Monday. She’s enjoyed the extra playtime but not so much the groomer (but she looks so much sprucer) or the vet (like me she’s had some skin issues but hers are seasonal allergies). We went for a walk with a fat black labrador My Girl is exercising this week while its owners are on holiday. Mitto is three times Peppa’s age and three times more sprightly. Labs are such piggy scavengers if you allow it - Peppa managed to find some rubbish to eat with seconds of being let off leash. Ugh.
Dancing in the Kitchen: I have been struggling big-time with health issues this past week and indulged in some spontaneous kitchen dancing to 1980s hits with My Girl at 10.00pm on Thursday night. I have been trying to get on top of the unsightly and prickly peri-oricular dermatitis that has taken over my face since January (yay for selfie filters). The non-steroidal cream I was prescribed didn’t work so I agreed to risk antibiotics, which are the only assured cure. But effective therapies come with side-effects, and antibiotics are horrors, especially if you suffer from ulcerative colitis. So yep, 15 days in, the antibiotic diarrhoea struck with a vengeance, and I’ve suffered a couple of indignities (thankfully at home). I was not a happy girl yesterday. On my GI’s advice I have started GastroStop (it has helped) and of course am taking big doses of probiotics. The dermatitis has several triggers and I tick all boxes, but the bottom line is the crazy immune system. The dermatitis is showing signs of improvement, so I will monitor the situation and decide whether to take a break from the antibiotics on Monday.
In the meantime, I have having a totally chilled weekend. No stress, no driving, no riding, no appointments, no social pressure; just staying home, pottering and suiting myself. I will gather my thoughts, address some issues, make some resolutions. The Husb is in South Korea, so it is just the doggo and me, and visits from the kids.
