tumblr people are the best kind of people

You know how people who say “High school will be the best years of your life” are the kind of people who made it Hell for everyone else? 

I have a feeling that’s how it is with people who somehow believe tumblr now is an improvement over tumblr in 2012.

Anna @holytomlinson (formerly annayolome) got so much anonymous hate after posting her own opinion. An opinion she was so scared of expressing here in the first place because sticking your neck out even a little bit in this climate is terrifying. So she decided to leave Tumblr and delete her blog. Like she said, she never dares to post her opinion, and now you have the concrete result of why that is.

I’m so outraged by the horrible fandom culture that’s taken over here. At what people get themselves to write to others, with no regard for others well being at all. She expressed an opinion based on love and people answer her with cruel hate. It’s despicable. And cowardly.

She’s going to continue to support and love Louis, the ways she can while not being on Tumblr. That is what she’s about, she is pure kindness, and all she wants is to watch Louis succeed and smile.

Anna is one of my closest and best friends, and for me this place will seem much duller without her presence. If you take anything from this post, please let it be to spread kindness and love, and not hate. And if you can’t do that, then keep your filthy fucking mouth shut. Thank you.

I suppose that’s just the way I am. I only see the best in people; when the flaws in their facades arise, I’m so quick to blindly overlook it. It’s just easier that way. I idealize these so-called “friends” even though there are so many signs that point towards how terrible they’re being to me.“

"I guess there’s just some kind of sick satisfaction in the blissful ignorance. It’s so easy to fall into a pattern of believing the best and only the best in people. It’s less painful to repair the existing friendship, when in fact the only things holding it together are lies and fake smiles. But it is important to realize when it’s time to say goodbye.

Hello dear. I thank you for sharing your advice with us. And i found out that i need it now if you can ofc. I want to graduate next year so bad but my grades aren't good enough, but i have the determination to work hard even though it's impossible to graduate with a good mark. But the problem is that i don't know how to work hard, like how can I guarantee success? Next year will be a tough one for me , I have alot of subject and the thesis, and i don't want to study a 5th year bcuz I'm done:/

Hi! I’ll start by noting that I could give the best advice ever (where is my life philosophy sticker??) but it ultimately comes down to you. You need to put systems in place that are effective and help you get the grades that you really need. I will give you a couple of overarching tips but you have to work for it. Here goes!

Fix your mindset:

This is so important and shouldn’t be underestimated. Use the fact that you might have to stay back another year as motivation to push yourself. You need to learn to discipline yourself to keep going and not become reliant on motivation alone. Believe in yourself! you can do it! This post is all about developing discipline. Here are some other things that might help:

  • mark your progress - the best way to monitor how you are going is to track your daily productivity. Jerry Seinfield emphasises that using a calendar (or habit tracker) is the best way to consistently perform tasks day after day. He says each day he has written something he will put a large red cross through the day on a wall calendar. “After a few days you’ll have a chain. Just keep at it and the chain will grow longer every day. You’ll like seeing that chain, especially when you get a few weeks under your belt. Your only job next is to not break the chain.“ This way you can see how well you’re doing and motivate yourself to keep it up!! Here is a habit tracker I made!
  • stay persistent - keep at it! It might be tough and some days you might miss doing a task - but making sure you can recover from those days is what matters! No one has discipline 100 per cent of the time. If you’ve got a friend from school (or even one from Tumblr), share your daily tasks and upcoming to-dos with them. Make them hold you accountable for getting things done. They can message regularly to ask how you’re going, provide some encouragement and praise your work! You should remember that your a new found discipline isn’t going to appear overnight.
  • be positive - you aren’t going to see a radical change from one day to the next. It is a long, arduous process that needs developing. Don’t be discouraged by the initial difficulties. If you miss a day, don’t dwell but think that you’ll try to not let it happen again. Focusing on any negativities isn’t going to help you, so accept them and move on.
  • externalise your goals - your goal is to be more productive and efficient when it comes to your class. By writing this down, you’re more likely to take the steps to complete it. On the same piece of paper, you can write down small things that you could do to achieve it. Keep it somewhere visible so you can remind yourself of what you want to achieve.

Make the effort:

With good grades comes blood, sweat and tears (maybe not so literally but you can’t expect an improvement without trying). here are some tips:

  • write down dates as soon as you get them - this applies for romantic dates and due dates ;-) Once you know when something is coming up, put it in. I’d recommend putting in reminders each week so you don’t forget. Make sure you keep these in view!!!
  • plan as much as you can - for big assessments this is key! I will also spend a few hours drafting up what I want to include in it. Sometimes I’ll spend a day (not a full day, just part of it) planning it out, finding my references, my main points, evidence and then breaking up the structure and word count. Then I’ll go back either the day later or a few days and start working. It makes tackling assessments much less stressful if you’ve prepped before hand. You can watch me doing my assessment (planning/drafting/writing) on my YouTube.
  • create a routine - try to develop a time to do things like work after class, studying, self-care and your hobbies! If you can devise a flexible routine, you’ll improve your disciple and help feel more organised in general.
  • review your notes regularly - like you’ve said, you should be reviewing notes every now and then. Follow the curve of forgetting and reread them after class, 24 hours later, a week and month later. If you’re making a habit of this, you’ll retain more information and need less time to study prior to finals. 
  • contribute in the classroom - I think a lot of education is done in the classroom and participating (even if you aren’t actively contributing but taking notes on what is said) is very important. I have one class this term which I really connect with so, unusually, I contributed a lot to the class. I can recall that particular class much more than the others I took more of a backseat. If you talk in the first few minutes of dicussion, it makes it much easier to continue to raise your hand.

Motivation

As I mentioned motivation shouldn’t be relied on as your only source of getting through work because eventually you’ll have a day where you’re so unmotivated and fall back into a cycle of unproductiveness. If something keeps you motivated, remember that and use it time after time. here are some ways to stay motivated:

  • use productivity apps - these are so helpful, I cannot stress that enough! I love the app ‘Forest’ for keeping me off my phone and focused. Here are some apps to try.
  • try to study in a productive place - avoid using your bed for proper study. Reviewing notes prior to sleeping is fine but don’t make actual studying a habit. Keep your bed a place of rest and relaxation. You could also use my motivational Monday art printables for some help!
  • keep your notes and laptop organised - date and name everything properly!!! Avoid getting lazy because it just spirals and gets even messier hah! You don’t have to be do it all the time but try on a Friday or Sunday to fix up the week and plan for the next one. I find that starting a week with a fresh mind helps me stay motivated.
  • learn to remove distractions and stop procrastinating - have a read of this post on limiting distractions and this post on dealing with procrastinating. If you can see yourself being productive during a study session and not just wasting 20 minutes on YouTube, you’ll be more motivated to study regular since you’ll see it as purposeful.
  • set up a reward system - positive reinforcement and having gratification for your work is going to really help keep you motivated. Before you study, write down what you’re going to do after - e.g. watch those YouTube clips you’ve been wanting too. Instead of giving in, try working towards them. 
  • use printables - I started using them back in high school and have since started making them for other students on Tumblr and Etsy. I get a lot of awesome feedback from people saying they’re motivating or really helpful. My Etsy shop has loads of printables (from studying packs, to reading logs, or just time planners).

Know yourself and what suits you

It is one thing reading my tips but we are different people! What works for me, might not work as well for you. Testing out different things should help you figure out what suits you best. Some things to do include:

  • try finding out what kind of learner you are. If you can tailor your studying to the way you learn, you’re going to get much better results from your study. Try doing this quiz. This is a really awesome infographic that can provide you with some tips once you know the way you learn. That way your studying is going to be much more effective since it is actually going into your brain!
  • find out when you’re most productive - some people are morning people and others are night owls! You can then learn to tailor your studying and revision to those particular times. For instance, you can do test revision when you’re most productive and prior to class readings when you’re less awake.
  • find out where you’re most productive - this goes into promoting an encouraging workspace but maybe you hate studying alone in your bedroom. You can try studying in the library with other students, your local coffee shop, at your kitchen table or even outside!
  • use a colour code - I find this such a useful tool and I’d recommend it to everyone. It doesn’t have to be super detailed or complicated but just enough to easily pull out the more important information.
  • create a format/layout for your notes - I use the outline method because I find it the easiest and most effective for me. Here is a brief explanation of mine.

Stay organised

The easiest way to manage your studies/education is to be organised at least 80% of the time (or attempt to). My top tips for organisation are:

  • plan and prepare - make sure your planning system is optimal! Your organisation can take whatever form you like, be it a digital calendar, a bullet journal or just weekly agenda. If one isn’t working for you, try out something else. We don’t all work from the same planning methods so it is also good to test out new ones. Every time you get a due date, add it in! Add in additional reminds too. I put them on my phone as well, just in case I completely forget. Being prepared and on top is going to help you feel more in control. You might find some of my printables on Etsy helpful since they’re more student based!
  • make a habit of scheduling your time - use some form of a schedule to map out your monthly, weekly and daily tasks. Make the effort to set times for certain tasks - be it 15 minutes, half an hour or an hour. These tasks could be clean out your school bag every Sunday, check weekend homework on Fridays, do allocated readings the night before your tutorials, etc. With time you won’t need to be reminded of these tasks since you’ll just know to do it. This is building discipline and habits!!
  • keep your notes and laptop organised - date and name everything properly!!! Avoid getting lazy because it just spirals and gets even messier hah! You don’t have to do it all the time but try on a Friday or Sunday to fix up the week and plan for the next one.
  • make study notes/revision notes throughout the semester - as you finish a topic, make some type of study notes. This could be flashcards, proper notes, a mind map or summary powerpoint! With textbooks, summarise each chapter on a flashcard or post-it note once you’ve read it. Then when you come back to review at the end, you’ve got everything in your own terms anyway.
  • learn to prioritise your tasks - this is crucial for students who are balancing numerous things like work, extracurriculars, jobs and a social life. Put the immediate and crucial tasks first. That Facebook notification or group text can wait until you’re done. This printable might really help if you struggle to determine what is and isn’t important. 
  • have a review day - set yourself up for one day to review the previous week and plan for the next. Reflect on what went well, what didn’t, and what you need to change to improve. Critically evaluating and planning ahead should help you keep up with what is coming and stay organised!

I hope this helps! Best of luck with everything :-) xx

Hello everyone! \( ● ⌒ ∇ ⌒ ● )/

My name is deena and I’ll be starting my first year of being a university student in September and because of that (along with some other reasons) I decided to make a studyblr to help me to get into the mood to study as soon as possible and also the most important thing is to help me to stop procrastinating stay focused and stay motivated.

About me:
Let me start this with my hogwarts home: I’m a proud ravenclaw! I’m a girl from Indonesia and I just turned 18 few weeks ago. June was such the best month for me because not only I graduated from high school but also I got accepted into a medical school! (which has been my dreams since I was in eleventh grade) and I seriously have no other thing to say it’s just: I’m so excited to finally learn the things that I love!

Why did I create this blog?
I’ve been watching this community for quite long time now and and I realized how this community is so supportive and the people are so kind to each other. So I decided to make a new tumblr account to join and maybe inspire people and spread some positivity and hopefully gain my motivation on studying also make some new friends along the way. 

Why did I choose a medical school?
I’d like to answer this complicated question with a simple answer: because it scares me the most!

What are your interests?
- I love the world of medicine
- I love biology sm and I love watching TED-Ed videos before I go to sleep
- A hobby that I’ve built in my senior year: procrastinating
- I love cats, they are blessings to the humanity
- I love reading books (especially Harry Potter and The Mortal Instruments), watching scary and thriller movies and writing short-stories or even poems too!
- I love listening to music and I have lots of favorite singers and bands. Some of them are Ariana Grande, Avril Lavigne, Ed Sheeran, Shawn Mendes, Harry Styles, and the holy trinity: Lorde, Lana and Halsey. I’ve got a ton of favorite bands and some of them are Paramore, Twenty One Pilots, Arctic Monkeys, All Time Low, 5 Seconds of Summer, Coldplay, Fall Out Boy, Kodaline, Little Mix and don’t even let me finish. I’m so grateful for music.

Some of my favorite studyblrs: to the lovely @emmastudies who taught me lots of things about the studyblr community! also @lychiestudies @legallychic @studyquill @studytherin @ohlookimstudying @intelliqents @successe-s @equaticns @m-ediblr @birdkostudies @studyneurons @sootudying @eggystudy @snowystudiess @notesworthtea @elkstudies @mochi-studies @studykouffee @alimastudies @stillstudies @studypetals @sapphirestudy @thecoffeedesk @aestudier @cielstudies @studypetals @natastudies @studyign @boystudy @lattetudes @studeebean

I’m looking forward to follow a lot more studyblrs and make some new friends!

Hi, friends.

I know I said I would not talk about terrorism here and now I’m out of tumblr, but this is my tumblr and I make the rules and I break them when I want.
To the people who asked me about how we are:
Barcelona is 600km away from where we live, but almost all my wife’s family live there, some not very far away from the place were the terrorist attack took place. All of them are alive and well. Thanks for asking and thanks for your kind words.
We feel for the victims and their families, and we wish the best for the injured and all the people affected, our hearts are with all of them.
Regards

Nuria

Holy Shit Guys...

Not gonna lie 

I was on mobile this morning and I had this all typed up and it was like 3 paragraphs long and i was almost done and then BECAUSE OF THE STUPID NEW UPDATE IT DELETED WHEN I SCROLLED UP!

Ok MOVING ON 

Lets do this again

A warning.. I have too much to say about this so please bare with me because this post is going to be everywhere.

Im gonna be honest here! 

My first reaction was “shit… now I have to actually finish all those projects..” but once it sank in, my second reaction was “Why the fuck do all these amazing people follow me?!” I honestly cant comprehend it. I mean, I swear too much, I yell, my blog is trash, and my posts are shit. Yet all you, my followers, my friends… you all still follow me for some reason! And i dont have the words to tell you how much that means to me. I love all of you so damn much. Even my little ghost followers. You guys mean the world to me. 

When I started this blog.. uhh.. i think about 6 months ago?

(Please please please please please please please read! I just have to add this because of how long this is, it fucks everything up)

Keep reading

i would like to think my blog is a place where i can be no one and that would be okay, i can be no one, unidentified and express my feelings, opinions and thoughts that i don’t want to share out loud. I like the fact that people have no idea who i am, i am just another person on tumblr that someone follows because they like the posts. They like the content and not the person behind it. When i first started i wanted to be recognised but not so much anymore. I could be your neighbour, best friend, or a stranger on the street but you would have no idea. We hide behind a username because that way no one can recognise you and realise what kind of person you are. I personally like people to guess what kind of person i am just to see how i’m putting myself across and to see how wrong or right they are.

anonymous asked:

What inspired you to start a pro life blog and dedicate your time and energy to helping people? I am pro life myself, and I don't mean to sound rude, forgive me if I do, only wondering if you've had personal experience here or felt God call you to minister in this way.

I started blogging about pro-life issues in 2013. The big turning point for me was when Texas State Senator Wendy Davis, who is pro-abortion, filibustered for 11 hours against state legislation to regulate abortion facilities. 

I had been on Tumblr for a couple years, but I had always stayed out of politics. When I started seeing stuff on my dashboard about Wendy Davis, and realized a lot of people I followed were supporting her, it kind of woke me up. I did some research into the bill and started engaging people in discussion over the bill and abortion in general.

Now, I didn’t have the extensive pro-life apologetics training that I would later receive from multiple pro-life organizations, so my early arguments were awkward at best. But the more I engaged people on the issue, the more I realized how necessary it was. As I received training on pro-life apologetics and tested arguments on tumblr (I always say that if you want to find the weaknesses in a pro-life argument, just post it on tumblr and the pro-choice people here will find them), I got better at defending the pro-life viewpoint. 

Early on, I saw a lot of pro-choice people talking about women “needing” abortion because of a lack of resources. I knew there had to be resources out there, so I did some research and compiled a list. That was when I started to really get reactions, both from pro-life people who cheered me on and from pro-choice people who attacked me. 

There were two other incidents that solidified my determination to keep this blog running.

One was someone who followed me and who I’d interacted with a few times. One day he messaged me and told me that, partially due to my posts, he had not only become pro-life, but questioned all of his other beliefs and radically changed from a liberal to a conservative on basically all issues. I was kind of amazed by this, and I learned that yes, it is possible for people to change their minds on idealogical issues because of tumblr. 

The other was a woman who chose life. By this point I had offered pregnancy resources for several people who came to me for help. I often don’t hear back from them, and sometimes i don’t know if they chose life. This woman told me that she chose life because of a link I posted to Tiny Blue Lines, a blog about a woman’s journey through an unintended pregnancy. The person who messaged me had read the blog and chosen life for her own preborn child because of it. She contacted me a year later to thank me for posting the link, and to tell me about her little boy who had been born a few months earlier. 

That not only encouraged me, hearing that someone had chosen life because of something I posted, but also challenged me to really think about how any given post I make could influence someone’s life or death decision for their child. 

Those are the two stories that I look back to when I’m discouraged by anon hate or by difficult discussions with pro-choice people. They’re also the two stories I tell people when they ask me why in the world I would willingly debate people on the internet :)

hey, guys! so as you all (hopefully) know, it’s valentine’s day!!!
so firstly, happy valentine’s day <3
secondly, i do feel quiet bad that i’ve been pretty MIA this past few days, and i’m so grateful to all of you guys for sticking with me. thirdly, i hit 1.5k yesterday, which i cannot believe! thank you so much, all of you!
along with this, i just really, really want to convey how deeply i care for all of you guys. i’m not very well-liked irl, and it’s really tough to have lost so many friends in such a short span of time, hence, i’m so so so SO grateful for all of you, even if we’ve never interacted, because you’re the ones that get me through the days. :)
so i figured, why get three (love)birds with one stone, and celebrate with some mutuals appreciation? let’s go!

Really, I just wanna know how any of the Raúl characters (particularly Barba) feel about the fact that the fandom or their s/o has an infatuation with his tummy 😶 If you don't mind, that is... *sends love anyway because baby you're worth it 💃🏻💃🏼💃🏽💃🏾💃🏿*

pahahahahahahahaha ok ok ok ok. I know you said Barba but I totally thought of the awkward duckling Frederick so I’m doing both.

Originally posted by willinterrupted

Frederick knew he shouldn’t read reviews.

But, his most recent book had finally released to the public, and fortunately it appeared to be doing rather well. In fact, he had been invited for interviews, made it on the television. He wouldn’t quite consider himself ‘famous’ (he wouldn’t correct someone for suggesting so, of course), but he had indeed managed to find himself with a bit of a following- mostly young adults with a fascination that brought them to devouring anything and everything they could in regard to the criminally insane and serial killers…

And, well, while that may not be exactly the crowd he had intended on drawing in: it would do.

He had heard horror stories about Googling oneself. Who knew what you would find, especially if there was a reason for strangers on the internet to use your name?

What would happen, he wondered curiously one evening when the surveillance cameras of his hospital didn’t quite quench his nosinesscuriosity, if he simply…

“Dr. Frederick Chilton.” Send.
About 2,000 results (0.60 seconds)

Well isn’t that just fascinating?

Most of it was nothing new. A few opinions he had already seen, a video or two of his more recent interviews, some picture the press had gotten a hold of- he clicked over to “Images”, hoping he’d only find himself well-pressed and even better dressed.

The first row or two didn’t disappoint… but then, he stumbled upon a candid picture, or so it appeared. It was from a news station, shortly after he stood up and just before he re-fastened the button of his suit jacket; how embarassing, why would someone capture him without the blazer there to cover that boring dress shirt?

He couldn’t help from noticing, though; there were comments.
While pondering what ‘Tumblr’ could mean, Frederick went to the page containing the unflattering photograph, took a large drink of bourbon for courage: and opened up the hundred-or-so 'notes’.

“I’m obsessed with the tum-”

Tum? What are they talking about?

“Awe! LOVE THE TUM HE’S SO CUTE!”

… cute? Frederick wouldn’t quite have used that phrase to describe himself; dapper, handsome, suave maybe but cute? Whatever, though…

“LONG LIVE THE TUMMY OMG.”

Oh my god, he nearly choked on his drink- they were talking about his stomach? With wide eyes, he glanced downward, regarded his belly a bit more than he had in probably months. They said he had a tum? A cute tum, at least they were complimentary when discussing it…

“I looooooooove when he takes off his jacket-”

Why the Hell did he even waste money on nice suits? Apparently these Tumblr-folks would be much more interested in just seeing his stomach, his 'tum’ or whatever…

“The tum is so important! Daddy!”

……. Daddy….?

Very carefully, Frederick closed the laptop screen, brows knitting together. He was an acclaimed author, a doctor, a professional… yet, he was Tumblr-famous for his ’important tum’. Was this good or bad, he couldn’t quite decide.

Resolving never to bother Googling himself again, Frederick rose to his feet, tried his absolute best NOT to waste time studying his stomach any further- apparently there were already plenty of people who kept a close eye on it.

How odd.

He thought he had seen everything; but this?
A tum-obsession? HIS tum being obsessed over…?

People are strange. So, so strange…

“Oh my God.”

Rafael Barba didn’t really find a reason to care that Carisi and Amanda were giggling at their cell phone. They usually found most anything amusing, especially kind-hearted Sonny, so who knew what they could have stumbled upon.

“I can’t believe someone actually made a blog about it-”

Why were they talking so LOUDLY, though? He was trying to concentrate, focus, actually get work done. Coming to the precinct may have been a mistake.

“These are pictures from his press conference on Wednesday…”

… Hold on… 

He had held a press conference on Wednesday.

Twisting in his seat, Rafael finally gifted the detectives the attention they were apparently trying to pry from him. “What on Earth are you two looking at?”

Proudly, Sonny snatched the phone, then turned it around so Barba could appropriately see the collection of photos. He squint, making quick work of scanning the little set. They were pictures of, well, him. “Who took those?”

“Your fans,” Amanda teased, and leaned over Sonny’s arm so she could scroll for him. “Look- they even leave comments.”

“You’re a hot commodity, Counselor!” Carisi only laughed when Rafael pried the phone from his fingers, then shoved his own hands in his pocket so he could carefully watch the ADA’s face. “Apparently you’re popular among the kids.”

Well, that would have been flattering, but the comments didn’t quite appear to be of the normal variety- a couple compliments about his suspenders (well, that’s nice of them) and a few side-notes about how great his hair looked (thank God he went to the barber just the day before)… but some were, well… a bit more interesting, to say the least.

Absently, his hand fell to his stomach, and at the sight of his slack-jaw and his brows nearly bouncing off his forehead- Rollins began to roar with laughter.

“HE FOUND IT!” She squealed, after hiding her face in the shoulder of Sonny’s suit.

Oh, but Rafael ignored her, much more distracted by the fact that these people were talking about… his ’tum’? He could only assume, due to the mentioned 'bottom right’ photograph where he was just about to button up his blazer, that they were indeed discussing his stomach.

And they were definitely not being shy about it.

“OH MY GOD I LOVE THE TUM!”

They couldn’t be serious…

“I hope he never loses the tum, it is so cute.”

Okay, maybe they were being serious…

“I’m OBSESSED WITH THE TUM. Court is in session and my body is ready, we can meet in my chambers.”

The color drained from his face… really...?

Barba couldn’t decide if he was mortified or just surprised. Not only was he not quite prepared to consider that he had… fans? But now, he had to consider… these people discussing his photographs were interested in his stomach. Honestly, he didn’t think it was that noticeable… had he gained weight, or was that maybe just a particularly unflattering dress shirt? Were his pants too tight?

“ADA 'THE BOOTY’ BARBA!”

Okay, maybe the pants weren’t the problem.

“What the Hell is Tumblr?” He asked from behind curled fingers, which were being used to try and hide the bewildered look on his face, as well as his blush. “How did you two even find that?”

“Are we not going to talk about the fact you’re famous for your tum?” Amanda was still trying to recover, giggles interrupted every few words.

Carisi elbowed her, pointed out a later comment he noticed after he was given his phone back “Lookat this one- PAPI PROSECUTOR.”

THAT was enough; Rafael slammed his palms on the top of the desk, pulling their attention off the little screen long enough to watch him recklessly shove paperwork and his book into the familiar briefcase. “I’m getting out of here, you two are ridiculous, I can’t get any work done-”

“Don’t forget your jacket, Barba-” Sonny bit the inside of his cheek, yet still couldn’t resist a final jab, “Or you may distract a blogger with your tum.”

Hi Trish, even as a non-shipper I wanted to tell you that I am (and as are most of the NST) disgusted with what BG and her vile sidekick are doing to you. It's out of line and I hope you take actions against them. NST here on tumblr have been fed up with BG for a very long time and have in no way supported her. Vince hasn't even been on our radar. Anyway, I am sorry for what is happening to you and you have my fullest support against these vile people. Wishing you all the best. Stay strong!

Thank you very much . I truly appreciate you taking the time to send me this message. Your support and kindness means a lot to me and I’m happy that there are more people like you in the world than there are like them .Thank you again.

Seeing all the hate on game grumps makes me so sad. Like?? I understand they sometimes make not so great jokes but jokes are different than actual actions, and sure they CAN get out of hand but try their best. And they are such?? A genuinly good people. You are lying of you say you never make "socially unacceptable" jokes with friends, and thats all they do. They are giant man babies with recording equipment.

Well, what’s kind of crazy is none of this shit came up on tumblr when it all actually happened. Like, none of these people gave a shit when it all happened nor do they give a shit about what the grumps said in response to these things. 

Like Dan’s accused transphobia. He said shit, but he also apologized profusely and said he was trying to be better and learn. There have been other instances where they have apologized, but these people spreading shit just see the one thing and not the other parts. 

None of this stuff rose up on tumblr until Dream Daddy came up because people were looking for reasons not to trust it and now that the game is actually out (and tbh it seems fine to me so far?) people are still going ape-shit about the grumps and tying it to the game. 

No one has to like the grumps and people (like the last person I was reblogging) aren’t going to believe you anyway if you try to explain to them what has happened, what kind of stuff was said, and what has happened since then. 

And right now in the last, what, like two or three months at least not a single thing has happened? All the episodes that have come out are fine and dandy and nothing racist / transphobic / homophobic has happened, but people are still up in arms. 

I don’t really know what to tell you, anon. If you want to enjoy the grumps then do it and watch it. I’m more than aware of things they’ve said and done, I’ve talked about it on here, I’ve seen what they’ve said in reaction to it. It’s all you can do. People are still going to flip out and bash them or say stuff, it’s just going to happen. 

And I am truly glad for all the good people who have entered my life and have helped me to better myself and grow to new heights.

Because of them, they unknowingly destroyed my perception that all people were the same old. They have helped me see my own worth and when I give and give, they give and give back.


And likewise, I am truly glad for all the people who imposed their toxic attitudes onto me. They took my kindness as a sign of weakness and turned around, saying that they never considered anything much deeper.
Little did I know, they were dimming my light, my potential, when all I wanted was a simple friendship.


Because of them, I am able to appreciate all the good people who want only the best for me. Those who see your flaws and understand and still appreciate you as a whole.

Sometimes people are assholes


But sometimes some of them make you feel like your wrists are roses and they grow thorns and as much as you want to cut them they’ll grow themselves back and this time they’ll be stronger. This time they’ll stop you and remind you that your skin is fragile but it has its roots inside the ocean and your body won’t give away so easily.


Sometimes she makes me feel like my words are the only salvation i’ll ever find and my own arms are the only crevices on this planet that can make up a home and that makes me just enough to survive.


And sometimes he makes me feel as if Snow White was a puny bitch who needed kissing. Cinderella needed shoes and a boy. He tells me i need nothing but my ferocity to conquer as much as i want. He reminds me that food isn’t supposed to turn to rust inside my mouth, and it’s not worth my time if it’s destroying me, gnawing at my insides.


Sometimes she reminds me of the sun, it’s radiance, and it’s empathy. She reminds me of kind ears and smiles that almost eat you up. She reminds me that people don’t always understand things you say, but she listens intently as if every word makes sense to her.

Some people lift you. They understand the fact that you have an armageddon suppressed inside of you. But yet, they choose to love you.

I really meant to make this post weeks ago, but my busy schedule kept me from doing so until now.;; Sorry, guys! But WOWZERS. I’ve hit over 900 followers and am on the road to 1k! Thank you, everyone! You have no idea how grateful I am that you all stick around and didn’t abandon me after my on and off hiatus’ over the years!

I remember when I fell in love with Wreck-it Ralph, going to see it in theaters multiple times until the urge–and eventual decision–to create a Vanellope blog struck me back in December 2012. I had considered myself late to join the WIR fandom, seeing as Tumblr was already swarming with many talented and kind roleplayers. But I was welcomed warmly regardless and have been attached ever since!

It was through my inner Vanellope that I was able to meet so many wonderful people, so here is my Follow Forever list. I’m sure I’ll forget a few of you incredible people, so don’t think I wouldn’t be interested in chatting or plotting with you!

🍬 Cherry on Top ;; @blastedroads.
It was through our blogs that we met each other all those years back and I have Wreck-it Ralph to thank for guiding me towards my best friend, soulmate and love of my life. Turbo and Vanellope are our roots; they will forever be special to me just as you are. I love you, my Richie & Turbutt.

It doesn’t matter to me if we have been interacting for years or have only recently brought our muses together, you have been around since the very start and continue to put up with my not-so-punctual bumper. For that…I will forever be grateful. Stay schweet!

🍬 Icing ;; @chosenwars / @fiixer@8bitwrecker, @chocolingthroughthepixelands, @bowserjrandthekoopalings, @smolsix, @eternalworks, @embersiisms, @intxlligentminds.
It may have been a quick Ask or it could be a current thread, but interacting with you all has been nothing short of bliss! Thank you for giving me and my Vani a chance; I hope to continue plotting with you & having our babs develop some sort of relationship~.

There are so many of you that I want to shout out, so I’m certain I am missing a good handful.;; But you all are so creative, seem so sweet, and I would love it if we could plot out a thread one day! I watch in awe as your minds come up with the most elegant (and sometimes hilarious) things, wanting to throw Vanellope into an interaction with your muses! 

Like I said, I’m sure I have forgotten some people. I do; however, cherish every single one of you and am overwhelmingly blessed to have a blog come this far. Thank you, everyone! If I ever make it to 1k, expect one sugary sweet giveaway!
