this is basically my whole life

I need your help with something

Hello! 

I’m not usually the person who asks for help in these types of situations but I could at least give it a shot now.

Basically, I’ve been without proper friends my whole entire life. However, thanks to the internet, I’ve met amazing people I’ve grown to be really close with, who I consider being my best friends. These friends and I have had an idea to meet up in a concert that’s held in New York in three months, and I counted that I’d have almost the money to pay for the trip so I was really excited about it! 

However, a backlash happened and I got a huge insurance bill and other expenses that I had to pay for all by myself. Now I’m left with almost nothing and I’m devastated. I’ve tried looking out for a job but I’m on my last year of high school so I have a busy schedule. I’m also unable to work thanks to my depression that got worse after my dad passed away. 

I really want to see my friends who are really important to me. They make me so happy and meeting them would mean the world to me. 

If you can’t help in any other way, please spread the word. Even good thoughts are appreciated. <3 My GoFundMe can be found HERE

Thank you once again! 

Good news about Liz!

Liz’s dad and I went to a conference at her school, basically a whole classroom meeting.  We did icebreakers.  We talked about how the kids are doing academically, and learned some little games to practice multiplication and reading with our kids.   We talked about how we use multiplication and reading in everyday life.

At the end, there was a cake walk.  I won a $50 grocery gift card and gave it to Liz’s dad, since he needs it more than I do.

As we were leaving, a teacher pulled us aside.  She said Liz is always on task, respectful, and grateful. ^_^ That’s the kind of stuff I love to hear!

I am proudest of my Liz when she is kind.  I’m so glad she is grateful to the point that teachers are pointing it out.  I’m glad that she’s respectful, not just polite; it’s one thing to say the correct words at the correct times, another entirely to respect people.

My kid is freakin’ awesome.

  • Me: Talks about thing I like
  • RL friends: I don't really care. Let's talk about things I like. They're a lot better. I mean, the things you like suck.
  • Family: God, you're a geek. Why can't you like normal things? Now shoo, I have more important things to listen to.
  • Internet friends: I know, right? I love that thing too! I'm so excited!
  • Me: Talks about feelings and personal problems
  • RL friends: Oh, okay, but that's not /that/ bad did I ever tell you about the time that this one thing happened to me and it was 3290259059059x worse?? Why don't we talk about my feelings? They're more important.
  • Family: Oh god here you go again with your teenage angst! Please shut up already.
  • Internet friends: Oh my god. I am so, so sorry. Are you alright? Do you want to talk about it? I sort of understand in a way, but this isn't about me, it's about you. Just remember that it gets better. Don't give up, please. I believe in you.
  • Me: Talks to internet friends
  • Family and RL friends: Why do you go online and on your phone so much? God, what are you, antisocial? What's your issue?
  • Internet friends: Don't worry, I'm here for you. I wish I could hug you right now.

Everyone is mad about the Xkit guy basically being forced off tumblr, but the more posts I see on the matter, I get the feeling we’re mad for the wrong reason.

“Damn it, idiots flung around a rumor and Xkit Guy had a breakdown and now my xkit won’t be updated. Damn it, this new tumblr update will just be sucky forever. We brought this on ourselves.” Is basically how I read these posts.

We should be saying “holy shit this website singlehandedly destroyed a man’s life because of unfounded rumors of sexual assault which is a SERIOUS THING but now this guy, who was INNOCENT, had a mental break and nobody on this website is facing any actual repercussions for something that, anywhere else, is a crime. Because false testimony/accusations is a crime.”

But nah lets just care because tumblrs broke again and he’s the only guy able to fix it. That’s why we should care, right?

TRAVEL TIMES IN THEDAS

Jensen: “MISHA?! WHERE? CAN WE FACE TIME HIM? WE SHOULD FACE TIME HIM! MY PHONE IS DYING!! NOOOOO! I NEED BATTERY! LIFE! GOD! NO!! YOU HAVE A CHARGER? YES! NOOO! IT’S DEAD! ANOTHER CHARGER! YES! I’M CALLING HIM! IT’S RINGING GUYS! OMG! IT’S RINGING! HE’S NOT ANSWERING! FUCK! NO!, WHY!?! *pouts*

adele was in tears when she was thanking her team, first person justin hugged was his manager scooter and he pointed at him and thanked him again on stage, meanwhile s*mon stood there with a sour on his botox stuffed ugly face pointing that invisible gun on them while liam had to thank their awful ass team for basically making their whole life miserable :) anyway my point is, i cant fucking wait for s*mon cowell to burn in hell :)

so like everyone’s talking about how great the whole “Yuuri is actually the playboy” plot twist was and yes, it was fabulous and i am literally on fire, but I also love that this episode revealed that Viktor is basically just like a giant, somewhat emotionally stunted fucking nerd? Like, he’s put his entire life into becoming The Best Skater and he IS, but all it takes is one wild party and getting physical with a cute guy on the dance floor for him to realize “wait there’s like so much I’m missing out on?? I’m only just realizing that I’m massively unfulfilled OOPS” and then all of a sudden being the best in the biz doesn’t mean shit anymore. like, he straight up pines over this guy for like FOUR MONTHS before dropping everything to move in with him on the subtlest hint that he may like him back, like, this is literally the most adorable high school crush-ass situation ever except y’know, Viktor is a celebrity athlete who lives on his own and is at the height of his career so suddenly catching feelings and deciding to just go for them is kind of a Big Deal

Last night, I had the honor of being invited to Taylor Swift’s after party for the Billboard Music Awards. I had no idea what to expect, all I knew was that I was very excited. I was even more excited because it was my 25th birthday.

Again, no idea what to expect, we arrived at the party and the first person I saw was Taylor. Taylor f*cking Swift. I died. We all died. The whole group. WIthin minutes, she came over to all of us and hugged us all. YES. HUGGED. I HUGGED TAYLOR SWIFT. The BIGGEST POP STAR IN THE WORLD. AT HER PARTY. ON MY BIRTHDAY. (Is this real life?? Just checking)

As it was my turn to meet her, someone had mentioned it was my birthday that night and she wished me a happy birthday. We had a brief conversation (basically me thanking her for allowing a peasant - like myself - to be allowed to come to her party - because she’s a queen, naturally). 

Shortly later, I went over to the photo booth section to wait in line to take a few photos in front of it - where she was - and as I was watching, I thought to myself “this is my chance to give my best friend his own photo booth experience with her.” So I went up to her, after building my courage up, and said “Hey Taylor, my best friend is your biggest fan and I just wanted to see if I could surprise him and tell him you will take a photo in front of the photo booth.” Instantly she said, “Yeah! Go grab him!” So I did. And he was LIVING. 

After he took his photos with her, she offered the chance that I could get in and take a few with her. I was incredibly nervous, and all the poses were her ideas. I just went along with them the best way I could without being too embarrassing. AND THEY TURNED OUT AMAZING. I’ve always seen Taylor have these photos at her party and I ALWAYS thought to myself - I WANT ONE OF THESE. And I got one. On my 25th birthday. WITH TAYLOR SWIFT.

Long story short, Taylor was so down-to-earth. Even with all the success she’s reached and has, it didn’t alter how she is as a person. It didn’t get to her head. She’s just like. She’s a human - who just happens to be the biggest star on the planet - and she still acts normal. No ‘better than you’ persona. A genuinely nice girl who makes you feel like you’re her best friend. Thank you taylorswift for a remarkable 25th birthday. It was everything and more. I will never forget your kindness, compassion, and welcoming persona. I love you and as cliche as this may sound, I was enchanted to meet you.

Paris Wins Life

I’ll never forget hopping off the Eurostar train in Paris and being basically dumped out into the bustling streets of the city. I honestly couldn’t breathe. As in, it took my breath away. There was a slight chill in the air, beautiful fluid French accents swirled around my head from all angles. Police cars beeped as they whizzed by. The stunning cream buildings with ornate black wrought iron balconies swallowed us whole. I put my hand on the shoulder of one of our team leaders as she began to vocalize our plan. “Hold on…just one minute.” She watched my eyes look around, taking in the architecture, the scents (also known as cigarettes), the people, the LIFE.

“Okay, now I’m ready.”

idea: villain with illusion powers tries to pull the whole “actually bruce wayne’s parents never died and that other life was all a dream ps as long as you’re here write down all your passwords and write a huge check to this guy your parents say is your friend” thing but is unsuccessful because it is basically impossible to impersonate bruce’s parents

“when did you figure it out?? >:[”

“i’ve known this was fake from the start, this woman looks nothing like my mother. red lipstick with nude polish?? that dress doesn’t suit her coloring. i said i was deliberately leading vicki on and she didn’t try to ground me, just because i’m a grown man. that’s not how my mother pronounces the word yeti. and this guy! he’s not tall enough to be my father. he hasn’t tried to pick me up even once. and neither of these people has had an uncomfortably flirtatious conversation with the butler in the last six hours. you fool. you imbecile. how could you possibly have thought that this would work.”
