that perfectionist

anonymous asked:

do you think rose would've become an alcoholic even if the kids had never played sburb and the world hadn't ended?

Hard to say. I mean, we see Rose’s development get hijacked by SBURB at 13, which is a pretty crucial developmental time. It’s hard to say how she would have grown up otherwise.

Of course, we have one inkling, at least. Alpha Rose certainly left alcohol in Roxy’s home, and Roxy at least believed that she drank (since I recall her saying she drank to be closer to her?) Dirk doesn’t mention alcoholism in his info dump on alpha Dave and Rose, though. She certainly was not regularly in the condition that we see Rose in late in the meteor trip. She was fighting an alien overlord - she couldn’t afford to be.

I’m not an expect on alcoholism, but I think there is some genetic predisposition. Rose has an alcoholic’s genes. She was raised in that environment. She has a perfectionist personality and can turn to self-destructive behaviors when thwarted. We know that she has the capability to succumb to an addiction. However, in a non-SBURB verse, she might have had more of a support system and social structure to keep her away from that. She might also have taken fewer hard knocks in her life that would drive her toward drinking.

So I think Rose has the potential to go down that road in any scenario. However, I like to think at least that in a non-SBURB world there would be someone or something there to catch her before she fell too far, if she did.

it pisses me off how many people in this fandom self diagnose themselves with ocd. like "I JUST CANT STAND WHEN TREES DONT LINE UP PERFECTLY I HATE HAVING OCD uwu" like do you fucking realize ocd is a lot more than being a perfectionist? its an anxiety disorder that can be crippling, not just feeling uncomfortable when your damn pixels dont line up perfectly. stop telling everyone you have a disorder unless youve actually been fucking diagnosed.

anonymous asked:

What are your grades like?

Well, I’m a perfectionist so my marks are good (but never good enough). Idk, usually first in my classes.

Can you tell us a little about yourself?

I am 29 years old and have a very supportive husband of 7 years. I love vintage MLP and watch the series The Walking Dead to relieve stress. I am kind of a workaholic and a bit of a perfectionist. I am also very sensitive and don’t like it when people are mean to each other. My day job before I became a full time crafter was as a preschool teacher. I don’t have many friends, but the ones I do have I am very close with. I have always loved fantasy and the unicorn is my favorite animal.

Describe a typical creative day?

There are three things I must have while I work. One is my MP3 player with the latest romance novel to listen to. Second is a thermos full of ice cold water. Three is my phone so I can stay connected to my shop while I craft. I work from the time I wake up to late in the evening with many breaks in-between.

What first made you want to become a creative artist?

The late illustrator Trina Schart Hyman, who died in 2003, I always dreamed of meeting her. Her books like St. George and the Dragon, and the The Water of Life are some of my favorite. In a way she taught me how to draw and that is where my artistic journey started.

What tarot card describes you best and why?

The “Star” because she represents a moment of renewed hope, inspiration and discovery. I try to have moments like that as often as possible.

Your most beloved poem.

This is not a “poem” per-say but it reads like one in my opinion. Don’t laugh at me but I really love the lyrics to the song “The Last Unicorn” :P

imagine someone doing an FTL Let’s Play and doing it like the hardest way you can imagine going for a total perfectionist run and in the last episode he makes it all the way to the final boss and immediately just opens all the doors and suffocates his whole crew and says “fuck you” and the video ends

OCD- An Obsessive, Compulsive, Contaminated, Repetitive, Perfectionistic, Non-Symmetrical, Dysfunctional Life by Allison Harmon

Have you ever stayed in the shower for an hour, scrubbing your skin

until it bleeds, even though the water has run cold?

You don’t intend to harm yourself, but if the skin isn’t scrubbed raw,

it isn’t



Have you ever brought your own silverware to a restaurant because

you don’t trust their cleaning processes?

You don’t intend to come across as rude, but if you aren’t the one cleaning it,

it isn’t



Have you ever switched straws after every sip of a drink because

you fear that something in the air will contaminate it between gulps?

You don’t intend to be wasteful, but if there’s suspicion of potential germs in the air, the straw




Have you ever driven to the end of the street, then turned around,

just to double check that the garage is closed?

Once you check, you drive back down to the end of the street, but




Have you ever gone back to the kitchen after cooking dinner,

just to double check that the oven isn’t still on, and it won’t burn your house down?

Once you check, you go back into the other room, but




Have you ever checked the locks on your front door, gone to bed, then gotten back up and re-checked, just to make sure no one will break in and rob you?

You check for the third time and go back to bed, but




Have you ever written, erased, and rewritten the same word 6 times just to

make sure it’s perfectly even?

Have you ever started speaking, stopped, and restarted speaking several times just to

make sure your sentence is perfectly eloquent?

Have you ever missed an entire class worth of notes because you’re

distracted by a crooked map on the wall?







Have you ever been immediately shaking after you send an email because you’re worried that your grammar wasn’t perfect, or you’re word choice wasn’t eloquent enough?

Have you ever anxiously awaited awaited a grade, even if it is hardly worth anything because

you have to get 100% on everything in order to be confident in yourself

or to feel like you were getting close to being good enough for at least your teachers?

Have you ever lay awake in bed at night, unable to sleep or even relax because

you haven’t started planning out that project that was assigned today and is due next month?

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder has destroyed lives

It is too often made light of and joked about

It is a serious, debilitating mental disorder that severely disrupts the lives of those who suffer with it

So think twice next time you call that guy OCD for liking his desk organized

or when you purposefully disturb the order of that girl’s closet

Mental disorders are not a joke,

and they are just as, if not more so, damaging than any physical disorder,

and you’d never joke about somebody with a physical disability

would you?

Those who suffer with mental disorders do not choose to be the way they are,

but you can choose to be more sensitive towards them.

You can choose to start treating mental disorders with the respect and seriousness that they deserve.

Who cares if people think you are ‘beautiful’? If you got no brains, sorry sista. Brains is what keeps you going mentally and physically. Learn to use your brain as your best friend and not a door mat. I’ve gotten this far in life thanks to all the knowledge and wisdom I have acquired from life experiences and I am thankful no matter what the world throws at me because I know I can fight and win the battle. Knowing is the key. #dembrainz #beautyisbrains #smartie #besmart #knowledge #wisdom #power #aware #consciousness #battlescars #wounded #beauty #narcissistic #perfectionist #dreamer #believer #narcissisticperfection #QOTD #quotes #motivation #inspiration #dailyquotes

I am a grade 12 student who has just recently graduated. You might call me accomplished, and in a way, I am, but not in the way you’d think. 12 years of pouring over text books and being lined up to be judged in front of my peers has not made me any more intelligent. I can tell you the first 45 digits of Pi and I can explain to you the difference between an acid and a base, I can recite the Pythagorean Theorem in my sleep, I will recite lines out of a textbook like they are a religion. But I cannot tell you the value of security, or of kindness. The distinct contrast between personal health and personal gain. I can tell you in grade 10 four of my classmates attempted to take their own lives before finals. I can tell you our counsellors office is always booked. I can tell you how when I didn’t understand something in AP Chemistry my teacher asked me to leave if I could not participate in his class. I merely asked him to explain a question. Instead of doing his job and teaching, he told me to leave. Told me I was not good enough to be there. Mistakes are viewed as failure in these hallways. A wrong answer is a sin you must atone to, not a human error, but a flaw so grand it defines your entire life course. There is no “average” here. We all must exceed expectations. Do your parents know that a grade that is considered average is a “C”? When I got a C in fourth grade my parents grounded me for a month. They said I was lazy and stupid and incompetent and that I’d better smarten up and stop fooling around. I never fooled around. I am driven by a deep need to impress others. I never fool around. I worked and worked and worked, with a deep hollow of anxiety in my chest. I have never been good at History, but I worked and worked and I attained at best a low B. It was not good enough. It is not said but we are expected to put our education before our personal health. It is not asked of us, but it is what we must do to achieve what we are asked to achieve. Our teachers will tell you, “Oh, I only give them one hour of homework each night.” Which is essentially true, each of my five teachers only gives me one to two hours of homework each night. Hmm, that adds up to 5-10 hours of homework, and overdue classwork, and projects. Say goodbye to sleep, say goodbye to feeling calm. I’ve developed a deep rooted anxiety disorder due to school and perfectionistic tendencies. Even when you get 100 percent on an assignment they still criticise you, it is never good enough. One slip, and you are in deep deep trouble. I can tell you that 90 percent of us try our hardest, and our teachers and parents stand in the sidelines, screaming, “You can do better than that!”
