same with people

Nothing other people do is because of you. It is because of themselves. All people live in their own dream, in their own mind; they are in a completely different world from the one we live in. When we take something personally, we make the assumption that they know what is in our world, and we try to impose our world on their world.

Regarding BB jokes and Chill Me

Just to clarify things because a week ago it turned from a joke to something like ‘KILL IT RIGHT NOW SHE IS PISSED’. Long post ahead.

  • Person #1:I would love to, but I can't afford food in general, period, notwithstanding the fact that it's more expensive for me to make things from scratch, especially since I live no where near a source that sells the basic ingredients I would need to cook with.
  • Person #2:I'm disabled, I can't physically make everything from scratch, not only is it incredibly dangerous for me to attempt such a thing, but it's physically exhausting and emotionally draining.
  • Person #3:I work too many jobs, and am too busy I do not have enough time in the day to make everything from scratch by myself. My work hours barely allow for me to sleep.
  • Person #4:lmao, my EBT card doesn't cover basic ingredients, because the politicians in my state thought vegetables were too luxurious for me.
  • Tired Argument #2:You just aren't putting enough effort into it, make long trips, spend more time researching food prices, find the cheapest source. Do extreme couponing, like in that show. You just need to put your time and effort in.

My dragon gods so far HAhahahhhh

there’s still a load of them I need to do, but that will come with time. They’re all characters from a verse where dragons are called Gods and take care of the ‘natural order’ aka that one brings the night, that one eats your dreams, that one makes the sun rise in the morning and SO ON, there’s a lot of them and if they’re not working they’re getting drunk in a night club shifted into their human forms. 

This whole verse is pure comedy tbh 

Mark and Tom pictures.
  • Me:-sees people cropping Tom out of pictures with Mark in them-
  • Me:-inwardly scowls and unfollows those people-
  • Me:I want more pics of Tom and Mark together.
  • Me:I want to meet both of them in person and take tons of pics of them.
  • Me:I want to hear brotherly moments and stories about the two of them.
  • Me:I want more Brotherly fan art
  • Me:-sighs forever-

anonymous asked:

Why do you hate Beth so much?

Honestly? I just do. But, since I know someone is going to get on my ass if I don’t include a Real Internet Argument©, I think she’s a boring character that got shoehorned into a plot she had no business in because the writers got lost.

Real Internet Argument© portion

Let’s start with the good: I actually don’t have a problem with Beth in S2 and S3 - in fact, I liked the fact that they showed the effects of loss (shock, suicidal intentions) in a relatively “normal” human being (i.e. not Rick “even my hair still looks good in the apocalypse” Grimes) in S2. S4/S5 was unbearable. 

Listen, I get that Beth is the ~~~~epitome~~~~~ of innocence in the apocalypse. Good for her. But the subtlety of that character trait, which was actually endearing in S2/S3, became a screaming, awful caricature in S4. 

Think of it like this - Beth being the one to be joyful about a baby in S3 is like the writers saying “she’s a beacon of hope” in 12pt Arial font. It’s nice. Meanwhile, Beth yelling YOU JUST SEE ANOTHER DEAD GIRL!!! is the writers saying that same thing in fluorescent yellow 1000pt Impact font outlined in fucking neon. We get it. She’s not like “these people.” Who cares? 

In addition, I think the writers wrote themselves into a corner after the S4 MSF. They paired everyone else up and went - oh shit, what about Daryl? They went, “Oh, stick Beth with him. It’ll be endearing. She’ll teach him about hope and whatever. Wait, let’s make her have a completely inane and pointless urge to go get alcohol when that’s literally the last thing you should ever be worrying about when you could get eaten today. It’s out of character for Beth, whose father was a recovering alcoholic, and it’s completely out of character for Daryl, who would never risk the safety of an impressionable teenager just because she whines about it. It’ll be PERFECT. Maybe they’ll flip off a house. It’ll be great.” 

They did the same with the 5A storyline at the hospital. Can anyone tell me the lasting point of that story arc besides, “wow, look, Beth is brave too! And we’re going to make her unnecessarily state that she’s strong half a dozen times so EVERYONE KNOWS IT.” Oh, and giving Daryl something to cry about. Unnecessarily. So, in short, my fancy-ass argument is that her storylines went from endearing to pointless in half a season and I was bored.  

The Actual Argument 

I just don’t like her. There. That’s it. That’s my argument. 

I hate the trend on Tumblr that you have to have some deep, philosophical, ten page double-spaced in Times New Roman font APA fucking cited argument as to why you don’t like a character. 

You know why I don’t like Beth? I never connected with her character. I don’t care about her. I share absolutely no character traits with her besides liking babies. Maybe it’s because I’m old and rickety in comparison to half the people on this site, but what I saw in her was a whiny teenager who didn’t understand the depth of what was going on around her. It’s irritating. I gravitate towards Lori’s resilience, Maggie’s not-overwhelming-optimism, Rosita’s willingness to throw shade in the middle of an apocalypse. Those are the things I care about. 

And yes, I did the test. The test I’m talking about is the “if this character were male, would I still dislike them?” test. The answer is yes. I still wouldn’t appreciate overwhelming, naive optimism and in-your-face reminders of character traits if those traits were put into a male body. I also did the “am I just mad because this female character is next to my favorite male character?” test. Guess what? Passed it with 5A. Beth was in her own little bubble and I was STILL BORED OUT OF MY GODDAMN MIND! 

Also, parts of the fandom elevated her to goddess status after her death and that multiplied my irritation by a power of ten. Like that excellent gifset I reblogged earlier, the TWD fandom can be an absolute clusterfuck of hivemind nonsense that gets spread around until you want to set fire to actual houses. This is also a factor but, please, for the love of god, do not get me started on the B*thyl fucktrain that I can’t believe exists. 

tl;dr I hate her because I can. There. This is how I feel about that.
