this was an awful lot of work

10 song tag 🎶

I was tagged by absolute sweethearts @yeol-stole-my-soul and @stillgotmydignitae thank you so much my dears 💖

rules: list the top 10 songs you’ve been listening to lately and then tag 10 mutuals

1. Christmas songs - I’ve been listening to a playlist of Christmas songs on repeat while I’ve been working through the Christmas scenarios for next month. it’s getting me so excited! I love Christmas!!

2. All of BTS’s Love Yourself album - it’s such a good album. in particular, I love Mic Drop and Dimple :’)

3. Work Song by Hozier - I’m working on an angst fic on the side, so you have that to look forward once it’s finally published (although it’s such a long piece, it’ll be a while before it’s finished! I mean! really long! we’re talking over 50k probably!) but this song really fits the mood I’m going for, since it’s not… sad particularly? but sombre? yeah…

4. I’ll Keep Coming by Low Roar - this is another song I’ve been listening to while I write angst, it’s quite haunting? I don’t know if that’s the right word to explain it, but the minimal instruments at the start plus his voice are quite chilling to me…

5. West Coast by Lana Del Rey - again, for angst this is great! sorry, all of these are from my angst playlist :’) but they’re really good, and all I’ve been working on at the moment are either the Christmas scenarios, or this angst piece!

6. RIP 2 My Youth by the Neighbourhood - okay, this is the last one I’ll mention from my angst playlist! I’m sorry, but if I get a good idea for a fic I’ll work on it obsessively, so it’s all I’ve been thinking about, outside of the Christmas fics for December!

7. Havana by Camila Cabello - this one’s just so catchy! I keep listening to it while I’m studying (gosh, is all I do study or write! I must sound so boring!)

8. Always on My Mind by the Pet Shop Boys - this song is so old, oh man :’) I’m really exposing myself for my love of cheesy 80s music! but it’s been playing on an advertisement recently, so I keep on coming back to listen to it!

9. Smoke Gets in Your Eyes by Nat King Cole - okay, I started to listen to this after Taehyung played it on one of the V lives he did a while back, and it’s such a nice song :’) bless him for his recommendation

10. Friends by Chase Atlantic - this is another one I’ve had on in the background while I write/ study. I don’t know, I just really like how it sounds

I’ll tag @stitched-yoongz, @lunariaabyss, @sungvin97, @btsaeipathy, @felifli, @hipsterminseok, @returnofthesquishies, @btsstuffers, @cinnaminsvga, @denouemin (but only if you guys want to!)

anonymous asked:

Honestly I admire your dedication so much!!! It’s so cool that you know all of these things about that time period and how you put in the work to learn and research it all!! Every time I see a post or answer of yours I’m just astonished about how in depth and informative you are, it’s incredible. You should be very proud of yourself!

Aw thanks! I am not an expert by any means, and a lot of the time I’m honestly just gluing together stuff I’ve read elsewhere. I just love history so much!

thanksgiving is like a Sham holiday and based off of celebrating awful things in american history but you know…. i genuinely have a lot to be thankful for this year

this time last year was one of the worst times of my life and the start of another really bad depression cycle that lasted a very long time and the world never seemed scarier or more awful than it did then

but now things are just going so much better for me; i made lots of new friends who i love so much who’ve made me wanted to be better and happier and have made me realize that gosh getting to live as Alice is amazing, and I’ve started coming out to real life friends (!!!) and they’ve been SO incredibly supportive and amazing (!!!!!), and I’ve started seeing a therapist to finally start working on my mental stuff and im already seeing improvements there, and I’ve started actively looking into starting my transition and have been talking with my therapist about options and stuff

and i just feel really thankful for all that. for the first time in basically forever i feel like im taking an active step in my life to get better and start actually Living instead of just surviving and it feels incredible. it’s still a long road ahead but for once i can actually imagine having a future and that future isn’t quite so scary any more

Wow Nova surprised me tonight! I was just laying in bed with my partner because my stomach issues were flaring up. I let Nova on the bed to cuddle and he was just chilling and getting pets from us. He ended up sniffing at my stomach then crawling over and doing DPT. I’m really in awe since we haven’t been working on that a whole lot lately but I had been having him do it whenever I flared up so I guess it’s paying off??? I gave absolutely no command, he just did it himself and stayed there. I’m so proud and grateful for him ;____; <3

i took a pic of me watching the pickle rick episode to piss people off but like somehow i managed to take the pic so that the frame on the tv was…. a different frame to the reflection on the desk?

edit: ive been made aware that this is due to something called a “rolling shutter effect” or something of a similar name, there’s a lot of explanations in the notes of this post on what it means. i don’t know anything about how cameras work so i didn’t know that’s what the whole shebang was !

(my phone camera is awful at focusing on the right thing and also the carton is a carton of tesco’s smooth orange juice. it’s good oj)

so recently, there were a lot of really bad spoilers leaked about ML. i can’t imagine how this must feel as a creator, to have all your hard work just thrown out like that for everyone to see, completely out of context. it’s really awful. 

in support of thomas and his team, the discord server i am in decided to start a small project: #HeartsForAstruc –  even after everything, we still love this show and look forward to the new season. this show means a lot to many people. i am  personally really thankful it exists. i have made so many good friends through it,  it’s brought me closer to some old ones, and it’s something me and my daughter can enjoy together. honestly, it’s really hard to put into words how much each of these things mean to me. so just… thanks so much for what you guys do. esp thomas, for creating such a great universe for us to play around with. really, thank you so much.

for anyone else who would like to join in: draw a character [or two, or more; can be ML charas or ml oc’s, or yourself if you want] offering hearts. doesn’t have to be a sign, just some sort of love hearts. post it with or without a message, up to you, and then tag it #HeartsForAstruc. let’s cheer the team on. :D/

When the gang’s realities come up, and you’re reminded why they are like they are:

school starts for me in a little over a week so i thought i’d make a quick back to school masterpost! this is a compilation of tips that i found helpful from youtube study channels, as well as things that i’ve personally done to make school easier. 

  • do your best work as soon as school starts
    • usually the first week(s) of school have a relatively light homework load, but don’t slack off!
    • this is the time to put in the most effort
    • you’ll be able to see which subjects you want to spend more or less time on throughout the semester
    • also, if you turn in great work, participate in class, and go to office hours right from the start, you’re going to keep up those good habits as the school year continues
    • plus, you’ll leave a fantastic impression on your teachers :)
  • use! a! planner!
    • cliché? yes, but it works
    • planners are a great tool to organize so many different aspects of your life, not just school
    • write down your assignments as soon as you get them so that you won’t forget anything, and so that you can plan your day/week accordingly
    • try to space out your assignments if you can so that you don’t spend all of your time on just one subject
    • describe your tasks. instead of saying “study chemistry” (which will turn into binge-watching youtube), say “practice balancing chemical equations”
    • planners are also great for setting and keeping track of goals! 
    • BUT, if planners don’t work for you, use some other way to keep track of your tasks and your time - to do lists, schedules, checklists, bullet journals, etc. choose what works for you!
    • just make sure that you keep all of your tasks in one place. 
  • break down larger tasks, such as projects or papers, throughout the week
    • do a little every day instead of cramming all the work into one night
    • bonus: try to get your assignments reviewed by someone like a teacher or a classmate before turning them in - most teachers are happy to look at drafts and give suggestions that will improve your work and your grade!
    • also, for big projects, my procrastinating brain has found it helpful to ‘reset the deadlines’ - work so that you’ll finish your bigger assignments a few days before they’re actually due
  • a big part of breaking down tasks and planning is also knowing your own study habits
    • try to figure out how long you spend on certain types of assignments, and know how much time you should allocate to specific tasks
  • when you have a choice, go for meaningful
    • for some assignments, such as essays where you can choose your own prompt, it’s easy to choose the easy prompt
    • but whenever you can, try to go for the prompt that will help you to deepen your understanding of the material you’ve learned
    • teachers who reuse prompts will probably see a lot of the “same” essays every year, so this is a way to stand out in a positive way!
  • if you can, declutter
    • or at least try to clean up your study space for the school year
    • having a neat space to work can really go a long way
    • throw out those old pens that have run out of ink and are honestly just there to look pretty
    • also: invest in good lighting because you gotta take care of those beautiful eyes
  • find classmates who can be your study buddies
    • if you know who the “top students” in your class are, seek out their help! get contact info!
    • if you miss classes or have concepts that you’re having trouble with, you’ll always have someone to ask
    • i mean you should always feel comfortable with asking your teacher for help, but it’s nice to have someone to quickly proofread your paper or review for a test with
    • peer tutors are also a great resource!
  • take the time to establish new habits
    • maybe come up with a morning/afternoon/night routine so that you know you’ll spend some time every day being productive
    • and don’t let yourself off the hook here!!
    • some ideas for habits: hydrating properly every day, working out, getting enough sleep every night, avoiding procrastination, journaling, focusing on one thing at a time / not multitasking, going to office hours consistently, participating in class
    • be honest with yourself. what are some things you do every day that you might not need to do every day? and what are some things you hope you can add to your daily routine?
  • speaking of habits, fix that sleep schedule asap
    • if you want to pay attention in class and turn in good work, you’re going to need enough sleep
    • i would recommend sleeping early and waking up early over sleeping late - it just feels less awful throughout the day and it shouldn’t do as much damage to your sleep schedule as one all nighter will
  • get yo priorities straight
    • learn to say “no” to things that will take up your time but won’t really benefit you
    • recognize that not everything is important
  • that being said! take breaks!!
    • burnout is real my friends
    • a lot of people say that you should use your downtime to work, and you definitely can if you want to and feel able to
    • it’s so easy to feel like you have to be studying or working 24/7, and that’s not true
    • if you feel like you really need a break, take a break
    • spend time with your family and friends! treat yourself with some ice cream! go for a walk (without your phone)! call someone who lives far away from you to say you miss them!
    • being productive is great, and even if you’re the kind of person that can handle that much work without burning out, that stress will release itself elsewhere - some harsh words you didn’t mean, some small thing that annoyed you more than it should have

ok that was a lot crammed into one post, but i have one more important point: be excited for school!!! it may be stressful at times (most of the time) but school is a place where we learn things and better ourselves and open our minds to new perspectives! i am personally so psyched for 10th grade and i think having that attitude will make back to school a lot easier :)

i hope some of these tips help you, and as usual feel free to drop me an ask about anything! i’ll be writing more of these “quick tip”-type masterposts for back to school because they’re a looot less time consuming for me to make (being honest here). let me know what you think of this format! and if you have any requests for masterpost topics i’m always open to those.

Steve Harrington x Reader

Requests are OPEN



“You’re really trying to tell me that Low is David Bowie’s best album to date?” Jonathan nodded, opening the brown paper bag that held his lunch.

“That’s exactly what I’m telling you,” Y/N’s eyes widened, then shoved her lunch tray to the side. She leaned on her elbows, her hands in front of her.

“I could name five other Bowie albums, easily, that blow Low out of the water,” Jonathan took a bite of his sandwich, then motioned to Y/N.

“Go on then,”

Station to Station,” Y/N’s right index finger began to point to the fingers on her left hand to count. “Aladdin Sane, The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars -obviously-, Diamond Dogs, and my number one favorite Bowie album of all time,” Jonathan mimed exactly what Y/N was saying with her, “Hunky Dory.” Y/N took a deep breath as she finished, then shoved a french fry in her mouth. “It’s like I don’t even know you sometimes,” She shook her head and shrugged her shoulders jokingly, “But, I mean, Low is still a great album,” That made Jonathan chuckle. A body suddenly appeared on the bench next to Y/N, scaring the life out of her. She had one hand on her mouth and the other over her heart to stop herself from screaming. Y/N turned her head and saw Steve Harrington with a dumb grin on his face.

“Tonight?” He looked at Y/N expectantly.

“What?” Her pupils were still wide from the shock, and the word sounded pretty dumb coming from her.

Important Quotes from GRRM

“Some people I met thought we have to find the story’s through line. Who’s the important character? Somebody thought that Dany’s the important character – cut away everybody else, tell the story of Dany. Or Jon Snow. Those were the two most popular characters to build everything around, except you’re losing 90 percent of the story. “ - Rollingstone 2014

“[T]hey couldn’t get a handle on the size of the material, the very thing that I set out to do. I had all these meetings saying, “There’s too many characters, it’s too big — Jon Snow is the central character. We’ll eliminate all the other characters and we’ll make it about Jon Snow.” Or “Daenerys is the central character. We’ll eliminate everyone else and make the movie about Daenerys.” And I turned down all those deals.” -Time Magazine 2017

These two quotes are probably the most important quotes from George because he plainly states that the story is not just about Jon/Dæny. George narrows them down to being only 10% of the story. Are they important? Yes. But so are a host of other characters.

“So all that time I thought Gandalf was dead, and now he’s back and now he’s Gandalf the White. And, ehh, he’s more or less the same as always, except he’s more powerful. It always felt a little bit like a cheat to me. And as I got older and considered it more, it also seemed to me that death doesn’t make you more powerful. That’s, in some ways, me talking to Tolkien in the dialogue, saying, “Yeah, if someone comes back from being dead, especially if they suffer a violent, traumatic death, they’re not going to come back as nice as ever.“ That’s what I was trying to do, and am still trying to do, with the Lady Stoneheart character.” - Time Magazine, 2017

Death does not make you stronger or nicer. Applying this to Jon, he is not the same and never will be.

“At some points, when [Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss] and I had discussions about what way we should go in, I would always favor sticking with the books, while they would favor making changes,” he said. “I think one of the biggest ones would probably be when they made the decision not to bring Catelyn Stark back as Lady Stoneheart. That was probably the first major diversion of the show from the books and, you know, I argued against that, and David and Dan made that decision.” - Time Magazine, 2017

Leaving Lady Stoneheart out was something George feels is a big mistake, we can assume that Lady Stoneheart is integral to the storyline in the unreleased books.

"It was the summer of 1991. I was still involved in Hollywood. My agent was trying to get me meetings to pitch my ideas, but I didn’t have anything to do in May and June. It had been years since I wrote a novel. I had an idea for a science-fiction novel called ”Avalon. I started work on it and it was going pretty good, when suddenly it just came to me, this scene, from what would ultimately be the first chapter of A Game of Thrones. It’s from Bran’s viewpoint; they see a man beheaded and they find some direwolf pups in the snow. It just came to me so strongly and vividly that I knew I had to write it. I sat down to write, and in, like, three days it just came right out of me, almost in the form you’ve read.”- Rollingstone, 2014

The Starks sparked the idea, and are at the very root of the story, but not the entire story. This also emphasizes that this book is not just about a bastard and dragon. +Bran is important, though the show fails to portray this.

“You have to remember that I started writing this story in 1991 and I first met David and Dan in 2007. I was living with these characters and this world for 16 years before we even started working on the show. They’re pretty fixed in my mind and I’m not going to change anything because of the show, or reaction to the show, or what fans think. I’m just still writing the story that I set out to write in the early 1990s.- Time Magazine, 2017


I think there are two types of writers, the architects and the gardeners. The architects plan everything ahead of time, like an architect building a house. They know how many rooms are going to be in the house, what kind of roof they’re going to have, where the wires are going to run, what kind of plumbing there’s going to be. They have the whole thing designed and blueprinted out before they even nail the first board up.”

The gardeners dig a hole, drop in a seed and water it,“ he told the Guardian. "They kind of know what seed it is, they know if [they] planted a fantasy seed or mystery seed or whatever. But as the plant comes up and they water it, they don’t know how many branches it’s going to have, they find out as it grows.-2011, The Guardian

“In the case of any of my novels, I know where I’m starting from, I know where I want to end up, more or less,” he said. “I know some of the big turning points along the way, the stuff I’m building for, but you discover an awful lot along the way. Characters rise up and seem more important, and you get to what you’d thought was going to be a big turning point and… the thing you’d thought about two years ago doesn’t really work as well, so you have a better idea! There’s always that process of discovery for me. I know not all writers work that way, but it’s always been the way I work.” -Time Magazine, 2017

Putting these quotes together because they’re implying similar things. 

George has a view of where he’s going but that doesn’t mean things can’t be reimagined. For an example, George’s original outline is almost completely different from the books we have now, but a few parts of the outline are still there, but taking shape in different characters.

I did consider in the very early stages not having the dragons in there. I wanted the Targaryen’s symbol to be the dragons, but I did play with the notion that maybe it was like a psionic power, that it was pyrokinesis — that they could conjure up flames with their minds. I went back and forth. My friend and fellow fantasy writer Phyllis Eisenstein actually was the one who convinced me to put the dragons in, and I dedicated the third book to her. And I think it was the right call.” -2017 Meduza

“In some senses, Theon is struggling all the way through to be a hero. They both come out of the same situation: they’re both raised in Winterfell by Eddard Stark, but they’re not part of the real, core family. Theon is a ward, and Jon Snow is a bastard son. So they’re both a little outside, but Jon handles this successfully, and Theon fails to handle this. He is poisoned by his own envy and his sense of not belonging.” -2017 Meduza

This quote brings the Season 7 scene with Jon and Theon to mind. Theon tells Jon that he always made the right decision, while Theon made the wrong decisions (choosing the Greyjoys over the Stark family that raised him). Jon will make the right decision.

“So many readers were reading the books with so much attention that they were throwing up some theories, and while some of those theories were amusing bulls— and creative, some of the theories are right. At least one or two readers had put together the extremely subtle and obscure clues that I’d planted in the books and came to the right solution." -The Telegraph, 2014

Extremely Subtle and obscure hints; George’s bittersweet ending will not be predictable. Only a few people have figured out the ending. If your predicted ending involves ultimate good (humans) vs ultimate evil (others), you already lost.

BTS Reaction | Slowing down during sex.

Request; during sex, they slow down/ pull you down and cradle you telling you how much they love you 

Kim Namjoon

Namjoon would find himself in awe as he watched you on top of him, realising just how much he missed being away from you while he was on tour. His touches would be gentle, guiding your hips to work in a slow sensual rhythm with his thrusts. 

Pulling you down he’d press his lips to yours.

“I love you Y/N” he murmured, smiling into the kiss

“I know I’m away a lot but I love you so much”

Kim Seokjin

Seokjin would shower you in affection, smothering in you in delicate kisses, hands caressing each curve of your body as if you were fragile in his hold. Halting your movements he’d flip both of you over so that he was the one on top. 

Slowly he’d ease himself back inside of you.

“Let’s take this slow princess” he’d murmur

“I want to show you how much I love you”

Min Yoongi

Yoongi would be thrusting up into you roughly when he decided to slow down his thrusts. Reaching his hand up he’d caress your cheek, being ever so gentle with you as he tugged you down so your forehead pressed against his own as he thrust into you deeply but still keeping a slow pace.

“Keep your eyes on me, baby, I wanna see your face” he’d urge when you closed your eyes in pleasure

“Fuck, I really don’t tell you I love you enough, I really love you Y/N”

Jung Hoseok

Hoseok wouldn’t be able to stop himself as he lifted up from the bed, wrapping his arms around your torso and pulling your body flush against his own. His deep and sensual thrusts would contrast from how both of you first started, blinded by lust.

His hand would cup your cheek “I love you Y/N”

“I don’t say it enough, but I do”

Park Jimin

Jimin’s eyes would be fixated on you, in awe of how your face would contort in pleasure with each of his thrusts. He’d soon flip you over so that he was on top of you, hand caressing your cheek as he realised just how much he had missed being away from you.

Thrusting into you slowly, he’d lean down and connecting his lips to your neck.

“Princess, tell me how much you love me”

“Because I really do love you, you know that?”

Kim Taehyung

Taehyung would let you take complete control while on top of him, usually, he would find himself getting carried away, thrusting up into you. However, this time he found himself getting lost in the way you would react to each kiss and each one of his little touches.

“You’re driving me insane, baby”

“I hope you know how much I love you”

Jeon Jungkook

Jungkook would be eager to have you on top of him, wanting to see all of you as he made love to you. Every little moan that fell from his lips aroused him even more and he found himself pulling you down so your forehead was pressed against his.

“You have no idea how much I love you Y/N” 

“I love you so fucking much”

^This is an image of Rey in what is clearly Snoke’s throne room.

Oh, look. See that Praetorian Guy, there? See his weapon? See his hair? His general build? Look at him really hard. Really closely. Just. Seriously, look at him.

This guy…. looks an awful lot…like that guy up there from behind and…

oh, look – he’s carrying a staff weapon….

Oh, yeah, and these guys look an awful lot like Praetorian Guard, too….

I’m not saying this is 100% confirmed – sure, it might not be the same guy because we can’t see his face. But the weaponry matches up, and it’s just…. I find it hard to believe Rey would be in that throne room alone without Kylo showing up at some point. This is just another drop in the Praetorian Guard fight bucket of evidence, in my mind.

I miss summer and all my friends from work.

Im so glad I’ll be back again


(source: thenKTwrote on twitter)

I wanted to expand on this because reading it also made me realize some things:

It also doesnt help we’re the first adult generation that’s being discussed on national scale as if we’re all still awful teenagers.

Like when ever before was an adult generation ranging from age 18-34 years old ever scrutinized & treated with the same distain & condescending tone used to delegitimize and demoralize children.

A lot of us are practically living on an allowance wage. We’re still adults and have adult responsibilities, but still live with parents or roomates (often not by free choice but because it’s all we can do as we work to move up). And until we pass a certain wage threshold or meet a stable S.O. it’s not sensible or safe for us to live on our complete own. Making minimum wage full time gives you about 1,000$ a month to live on and most rent alone is 700$+ for just a small 1bdrm place. So we’re making money but not enough to live on.

We become legal adults at 18, but if we go to University we’re still in a teen mindset of attending class and getting our work done as we try to grow up and become independent. Life skills are put on hold while we try to survive the workload and just make it through each day. Again, it’s not like we are necessarily prepared for adult life before all of this. 

We work for hours at school, then bring that work home to work for hours more. Some people need to work a part time job during all of this also, it’s like having 3 jobs and hardly enough money to survive on, and no time to cook or eat well. Many dorms rooms don’t even have appliances to cook with. So our overall health declines as we eat cheap instant food or pay for an expensive questionable lunch service. (some places even put up cheery posters suggesting to skip meals or donate plasma to afford class materials)

Plus mental illnesses, anxiety & depression have become commonplace because of the immense pressure we’re under and the consequences we face if we can’t make it: (family ridicule, shame, losing job prospects, homelessness, poverty, or returning to an abusive household, etc.)

Though we’re adults, people don’t want to pay us for our internships, i.e. our work. Job training has become a commodity and privilege. It’s considered rare if a place is willing to pay you as an intern despite completing tasks and running errands for your place of “employment.” You’re supposed to feel grateful they even gave you the time of day for this “opportunity” to put on your resume, many times of which nothing comes of.

We become accustomed to our work and time being undervalued. Everyone wants to pay us with exposure. We consider ourselves lucky if we can make over 10$ an hour somewhere, despite the humane paying wage being around 15$+ an hour.

By the time we graduate and get our degree (if we were able to afford to complete it) we’re around 22. True adults! Four years into adulthood and we’re now just getting into the world to make our mark. 

We could have anywhere from $20,000 to $100,000 (yes I know people in the 100k tier) in debt for the education that promised us better opportunities (and high interest accumulates while we’re still in school, and payments have to start being made after 6 months of graduation.)

When we do finally get a paycheck a large chunk of it goes to paying those off.

Then comes the common employment void conundrum of not being able to find a place willing to hire you for your skills, or if they do you won’t get the pay you deserve or need, or–

you have to work one of the minimum wage jobs people threatened you with when you were younger, just to start getting some sort of income. “Go to college & get an education so you’re not stuck as a _____ all your life!”, like some bastardized self inflicted caste system. Which ironically many people are. And I won’t even get into the fact of how messed up it is that regardless of who it is, someone will have to work those “low tier” jobs in every establishment and therefore should earn a humane livable wage regardless but don’t.

TLDR; Though we’re adults, no one wants to treat us with the respect we deserve. We’re talked down to, looked down upon, and our unique experiences and cries for help are met with “PULL UP YOUR BOOTSTRAPS!!!” from people who never had an experience that was even close to this. We’re the first adult generation treated like children, abused and trained to overwork and accept the measly scraps thrown to us like some 1900s factory era bullshit, despite being one of the most qualified and educated generations to ever exist.

So yeah, it’s all pretty fucked up.

[EDIT: OH YEAH LIKE THIS THING I FOUND ONCE ON A JOB/EMPLOYER THEMED MAILING BLOG LIST. IT WAS BASICALLY A POST ON HOW TO APPEAL AND CATER TO THE STRANGE CREATURES MILLENIALS ARE.All of this shit is common sense and just good business practice in general. Like “Millenials like to know they’re being paid enough”, “explain yourself when you tell people to do something.” “young people are jealous emo creatures, don’t promote by favoritism and nepotism” (งツ)ว what the FUCK. 



don’t ever tell your kids “if you’re not being useful then you’re being a burden” like manage not to say that so that your kids don’t work themselves into a depression and then death :) just a protip for all you parents out there
