so this was perfect timing

“Life isn’t perfect, but your hair can be.”

recently i’ve been eating healthier, i’m exercising regularly and i have a good sleeping pattern and honestly i feel so much better; i actually have energy now. even though i am very happy with my appearance, i do have times where i compare my body to others or i look at myself in the mirror hoping to see something else. it doesn’t happen very often but i feel like we are constantly being subjected to a particular perception of beauty that is thrown around, and it can be difficult sometimes to remember that this is only one body type, this is only one perception. the problem with this is that your brain starts to see what is being portrayed as ‘normal’, and therefore thinks that if you don’t look like that then you must be ‘abnormal’. also the idea of perfection does change over time, so what is seen as perfect now might not be in ten years time. i know how hard it can be sometimes but please try to accept yourself for who you are; there is not one ideal appearance, and you are not in any way lesser than someone else. please treat your body with kindness and be healthy, whatever that means to you. and don’t be afraid of showing the world what you look like, because the more people of all different shapes and sizes are happy and confident in their appearance, the more other people will be too. and maybe one day there won’t be an idealistic body type and we can move away from this one image of perfection.

So I've been reading Neil Hilborn since I noticed how taken you are with him (thank you for that) his writing came into my life at the perfect time, he speaks so well on mental illness while also being a brilliant storyteller. . . I was wondering if there's anything else you could recommend that has that effect on you, anything: poets, literature, fiction, podcasts even?

ikr! he’s amazing isn’t he?

As for other things, the first thing that comes to mind is Dessa. She was the first musical artist I absolutely fell in love with and I haven’t found a band that meets the intricacy and beauty of her prose since.

I’m also a fan of magical realism and that sort of blending the mundane with the strange. PJ Liguori (youtube: kickthepj) has a way of making magical-realism-ish stories that are somehow simultaneously magical, relatable, and unsettling. especially in his older stuff. I still go back to gems like this when I need an extra creative boost.

(I just realized I didn’t include any of the genres you actually asked for. Along the mixing of sci-fi/fantasy with reality line, Kurt Vonnegut is a p great author, and welcome to night vale is a podcast I used to listen to, but stopped for unknown reasons. Otherwise, Sam Rush is an amazing slam poet, I’m a big fan of their more recent stuff like this.)

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

RFA in Autumn

It’s getting colder – I hope everyone stays warm ♥ I’ve always wanted to draw autumn themed art it’s so fun *THROWS LEAVES EVERYWHERE*

I also posted wips && previews in my instagram earlier♥

dreamy thoughts
  • how do we know that magical creatures don’t exist? just because we haven’t seen them doesn’t prove they aren’t real.
  • what if clouds really are cotton wool and we can sleep in them? but airplanes move too fast for us to know.
  • flowers and forests are my home.
  • I walk in a snowy pine tree forest but I don’t feel cold. All the little woodland creatures greet me as a friend.
  • I’m looking up at the stars, but the stars are too distant for me to see that they’re smiling back, hoping that I’ll be okay.
  • what will my future hold? any day now, I could do something I fear terribly and all my dreams will form into a reality.
  • all the swans in the mirror lake know my name, they sing for me and tell me their stories.
  • I metamorphosize like a butterfly, from a shy weak little thing to a magnificent being of magic.

the true beauty and the beast ‘gay moment’

  • “who needs her when you’ve got us?”
  • “it’s never going to happen ladies”
  • “I’m not done with you yet” - “me neither”
  • LeFou looking dreamy and biting his bottom lip when Gaston says “picture it LeFou (…) adorable children running around while my love rubs my tired feet”
  • LeFou’s dreamy look turning into a frown the second Gaston adds ‘but what does Belle say?”
  • the whole Gaston song
  • “LeFou you’re the best. How is it no girl has snatched you up yet?” - “I’ve been told I’m clingy, but I really don’t get it” + the Look
  • the nose boop
  • the dance with Stanley at the end

basically pretty much all the lefou scenes were gay because he’s gay af it wasn’t even subtext it was obvious and subtle at the same time goodbye
