I don’t want to be angry anymore. I want to be calm. I want to stop hurting people and blowing up all the time. I hate myself for it. It’s straining my relationship. It’s made my mom cry. I just lose it and blow up on anyone that’s near me when I’m mad and I know it isn’t fair but I feel like I can’t control it, and every time I go off I just get more angry at myself and it makes it worse. My anger is out of control and I don’t know how to fix it. I feel like the worst piece of shit.
Lololol I thought "team mom" was just the therm people used to group the "supportive parent" team leaders in haikyuu, the squad thing just giving a name to a group of characters with a similar feature? Like the "I have a thing for my ace squad" or the "loud squad" or the "stoic/ poker face" squad, I never thought of it in a negative way so thanks I feel more informed now
none of those other “squads” are aggressively gendered. they’re characteristics. and they aren’t associated with being feminine.
also, daichi is way more of a “supportive parent” than suga. suga wants to watch the world burn.
Hi! I am screwed and have a week to unfuck my habitat. I changed my unsername to protect the not innocent... me. I have a week to unfuck the apartment or i'll be evicted. depression, anxiety a heat wave and broken ac did me in. How do i post on twitter I could really use this group's support over the next week/ or i am totally fucked. I am new to tumbler so can't figure out how to post on the page! Thanks! N.
OK, folks, we have an unfucker who needs some support!
While you’re doing this (and honestly, good for you for reaching out and making the commitment to doing this!), make sure to take care of yourself and your health. Take plenty of breaks, stay hydrated, check in with your mental state pretty often, and don’t beat yourself up if you get off track a little. Give yourself plenty of rewards, listen to some good music or a favorite podcast, treat yourself gently and kindly, and keep your goal in sight.
Sooo apparently @artsymeeshee and me are creating a club for awkward potatoes like us!
If you’re ever too scared or shy to talk to someone don’t fret, we’re all scared and shy too xD But we should try to push that fear aside and still give it a shot! Who knows? Maybe you’ll find a new friend! :D
Come join us in this support group of awkward people! Everyone is welcome to join!
Hyerin: hey can i borrow your phone? LE: sure *hands over his phone* Hyerin: why is your lock screen a picture of Hani laughing? LE: …I came out here to have a goOD TIME AND I’M HONESTLY FEELING SO ATTACKED RIGHT NOW!!!!!!!
this means that inclusion of the ace flag, considering the complete absence of ace activism and inclusion solely on the basis of an ace identity at the time of the stonewall riots, is purely performative.
this makes it another case of lgbt people being forced to accept aces into their history or be demonized as non-inclusive bullies. and this isn’t the first time, either.
GLAAD, after stating the A was for Ally, was threatened and harassed by ace and aro people — the #giveitbackmovement — into apologizing and publicly identifying the A to be for Asexual. this was done not for the purpose of inclusion, but because widespread public backlash against lgbt organizations leads to a loss in funding. funding that would be used to start lgbt support groups, fund HIV/AIDS care and resources, fund transitions, fund lgbt shelters, assist local lgbt-friendly clinics, aid in lgbt-related lawsuits and much more. we are forced to be all-inclusive of cishets in order to keep resources we need to stay alive.
we are also forced to give up the nuances of our history in favor of catering to the feelings of cishets desperately searching for a way to be oppressed so they cannot be labeled as the oppressor any longer. this distancing from one’s privilege is textbook oppressor behavior.
don’t forget stonewall. don’t forget what the riots meant for us or who took part in them. and do not think that a lack of widespread reaction to the ace flag at stonewall is acceptance of ace inclusion. the facts are that when we react, when we fight back against our oppressors, we ultimately will lose resources that are extremely important for us. this is why there is no “ace discourse” off of tumblr. we cannot afford the wrath of our oppressors.
What is one thing everyone is freaking out about in the Jacksepticeye fandom right now? Anti.
And what are people scared he’s doing? Corrupting the other egos.
We have already seen examples of this in jacks Bio Inc let’s play- specifically the episode with Schneeplestine. Because his character has done a compleat 180 since the Power Hour.
So, I want to talk about how Anti might corrupt the different egos.
(This is gonna be a long post, btw I’m on mobile and can’t add a cut)
Well, each ego has a central part of their character, the thing that makes them who they are. What happens if we take that away?
Well, let’s start with Jack the Magnificent (I think some are calling him Marvin? I’m not sure. I’ll refere to him as JM) so, what is central to him? It could be wanting to explain things as magic, or it could be wanting attention, because he is trying to put on a magic show. But Anti also wants attention so he can’t have that. And what did he write in that creepy post? Ignored. I wouldn’t say Anti is at all ignored. Could he be taunting JM? Chipping away at him? He’s had since august to do so. He’s probably well and truly under Anti’s control by now.
Now for the Good Doctor. Dr Schneeplestine. He was probably rather easy to corrupt, party because he did most of it himself. When we first see him, while he does seem to have a murderous streak (“how about i kill you peter? What if you never wake up?”) he is genuinely upset when peter dies. He also gives us what he thinks are genuine health tips, and is devistated when he looses his licence the only thing stopping his wife and his children from leaving him. So, with no license, no family and no friends, Anti takes him in and gives him a job. Killing people. He manipulates his mind until that murderous streak is central. However, people have theorised that Schneeplestine has been trying to warn us, so maybe it’s not too late.
It’s time for Chase, the man himself. Father, nerf enthusiast, and heartbroken. Central to him is appearing cool, and being a good father. Take away his kids, show him crying on camera? What does he have left? Enter anti, stage left, in the moment he kills himself. Promises him a chance to see his family again. Revives him. But at what cost? But we know one thing for sure- Chase, our sweet little chase has out lived his usefulness to anti- and has possibly been killed.
And what of JackaboyMan? What if he is the direct opposition to anti? The one who can save them? Now, if anyone
Remembers, JackaboyMan came into existence to stop Jack from being scared. This makes him the most easiest to corrupt. Because what is he without his courage? Just a man in a dumb costume.
And Jack? As he is, to some extent an ego too. Well.
To corrupt jack, we think, what’s most important to him?
Simple. the fandom.
As a final blow, Anti will harm us.
Can u recommend me some LL doujin? (Rule 34 is not a problem)
Bruh. You’re gonna have to be a lot more specific than that. Now you’ve doomed this post to wall-of-text status.
Are you looking for LL (µ’s) or LLS (Aqours)? Or even A-RISE/St. Snow? No really, when I visited Mandarake on my trip to Japan earlier this year, there was an entire doujin section devoted specifically to A-RISE.
Of course, pairings matter as well. Are you into NozoEli or NozoNico or NicoEli or NozoEliNico or EliUmi or HonoUmi or KotoUmi or NicoMaki or MakiPana or RinPana or…you get the point.
And on that note, what genre are you interested in? Comedy? Angst? Romance? And if you’re into romance, are you looking for something with plot…or straight-up smut? (⁄ ⁄•⁄ω⁄•⁄ ⁄)
Don’t even get me started on Twitter/Pixiv - there are lots of good published doujins out there for sure, but there’s also a ton of fanart and short comics posted on Twitter that deserve love.
If you have anything specific in mind, feel free to tell me and I’ll try to point you in the right direction. But for now, I’ll just give you a list of artists off the top of my head whose works I particularly enjoy.
(Note: You can find translated doujins for many of the artists below on Dynasty Reader and the like, but please consider purchasing the actual book - most of them are on Melonbooks. They’re really cheap and honestly worth it, plus you’re showing your support of these talented folks! I myself own a copy of Mushiyaki’s first ChikaYou doujin.)
Any advice for parents wanting to home school? I'm scared people are going to advise me of being a brain washing cultist.
I’ve been SOOO excited to answer this ask because I have so many good things to say about homeschooling! Actually, if I’m honest, I have absolutely nothing bad I can possibly think of. I was homeschooled all the way through 12th grade and there is nothing I would change. I will ALWAYS be grateful to my parents for devoting themselves to me in that way, and especially my mom for sticking with it - from the rocky years of highschool, to back when I was an elementary brat. Looking back, we agree it was worth any struggles tenfold.
The first thing you need to know is this: you will be ridiculed. At some point, somewhere, someone is going to criticize you. Whether it be your teaching, your abilities, your discipline, or your morals, the world is going to try and push you down. Therefore, you need to be confident, you need to know your motivation as to why you are doing this, and know that, as the parent, only you know what is best for your child.
A good way to kindly explain that to someone is to know the benefits of homeschooling. And the list is long!
— Homeschooling gives you the freedom to specifically tailor the curriculum to your child’s needs. Whether going slower or faster, you can go at a pace that is comfortable to you and your child. For example, division was a nightmare for me as a child, but I was reading at a 12th grade level by early grade school. Therefore my algebra was slow moving and required a lot of repetition, but I blew through English.
— Homeschool students as a whole score significantly higher on standardized testing, with the low range being 15-30% improvement, and typically score above the average collage admission test. All of this is regardless of the education level of the parents and any degree of formal they may have. You don’t need to be a certified teacher or have lofty degrees to teach your children effectively.
— Building off both the other points, I would argue that homeschooling leaves you over prepared for college. I briefly mentioned math is not my strongest suit. I thought, in going to college, that I would be behind, but I actually placed significantly higher than I thought I would. Socially, homeschoolers are generally more prepared as well, for as where public schoolers function primarily with their same age group, homeschoolers tend to be more accustomed to a variety of ages - from toddlers to senior citizens - and that can allow one to adapt well into different class, work, and social settings.
— For those with illnesses, physical or mental limitations, homeschooling’ flexibility is a definite asset, as it allows you to modify your schedule as needed, even on a day-by-day basis, and you don’t have the stress and pressure of missing school days - you can do the work when it is convenient for you.
— Homeschooling encourages enjoyable learning and self-motivation. I going to the aquarium and watching the school kids have to breeze through it in two or three hours. But for us homeschoolers, we could spend all day there, and we did! Why? Because I found it fascinating! I would read every brochure on the tropical fish, ask questions of the staff as I pet sharks and sting rays. Homeschooling doesn’t limit learning, it encourages exploration and deep thinking. You don’t have to rush through.
— Homeschooling encourages family bonding. Most the time, we all did school in the same room, either at the kitchen counter or consuming the kitchen table in books and papers. We would take a break from math and mom would read to us everything from history to science to fiction. Reading was a huge part of my homeschool life, and even now that I’ve long since graduated, my family still likes to read aloud together.
— It saves time. Where my public school friends were in school for eight hours a day and then spent several hours on homework, I got my school done in an average of four hours max. I would be done by noon, and the out climbing trees with my brother for the rest of the day. Learn about the world and then go live in it! I would have missed out on so much if I hadn’t been homeschooled.
— This next point is very important when you’re talking about “brain washing”. Public schools are growing increasingly more aggressive toward adverse opinions, any mention of God, and in many cases are implementing revisionist history. Not even biology is taught correctly anymore with this distorted view of sexuality. Homeschooling allows multiple view points to be explored and allows for deep research into why such a point is incorrect, what actually happened historically, ect. Public schools expect things to be taken at face value too much of the time. Homeschooling promotes critical thinking and exploration. You don’t just slam the door on counter views, you talk about them and discuss it. Additionally, homeschooling is not just for the religious. There are many people, including atheists, that homeschool simply because they recognize the benefits to their lifestyle and, most importantly, their child.
— Homeschooling protects your child. We have all heard people talk about how “sheltered” homeschoolers are. The only thing I was ever sheltered from was bullying, profanity, sexual jokes and harassment, violence, and peer pressure. I had many social circles and events (the joke among homeschoolers is often that they’re never home), but it was always in a positive environment. I would have been so much more insecure if I had had to face the things all my public school friends did, but instead I grew up knowing I could be confident in who I was. On the same note, it is important to make sure your child has a healthy amount of social interaction. Awana, youth group, various clubs, sports, are just a few ways you can make sure your child is active.
— Homeschooling saves money. Both within your home, and in regard to tax dollars spent toward public schools. There are great monetary and economical benefits to homeschooling.
— Public schools are a fairly modern development. For thousands of years the bulk of one’s early learning was done at home or in a relatively small school where you still received that one-on-one instruction - very similar to homeschooling. The norm was not 30-40 kids with one teacher. It wasn’t the massed produced learning you see today.
Now a few more things before we go…
There is a HUGE array of curriculum out there, you can pick and choose from a virtually endless myriad of resources. Find what works for your child. Know that often what works for child #1 does not work for child #2. I went through three math books until I found what really worked for me. Don’t be afraid to try different things. (And also look for homeschool book sales to buy at! You can save lots by buying used)
FIND A SUPPORT GROUP. This is HUGE for you as a parent because when challenges arise, and I PROMISE you they will, you are going to want someplace to look for solid advice. A network of good friends, co-ops, homeschool church groups, homeschool academies - whatever it is, find a group of homeschoolers near you where you can ask questions, present your challenges, and get positive feedback. More so than that though, you need encouragement. The best people to give that to you are people who have been in the same spot.
Know your legal rights as a homeschooler. I would highly advice checking out the Homeschool Legal Defense Association (HSLDA). They have fantastic resources on a general basis, but it is really important to know your rights as a homeschooling parent. At the very minimum, check out the state requirements and know what you’re obligated to do. When I was homeschooled, I didn’t need to take hardly any standardized tests, but there were a lot of people saying I needed to. So even small things like that are really important to know (it saved me a lot of anxiety).
Homeschooling isn’t always easy, but I promise you that the rewards far outweigh the cost. It is worth every moment. There are few ways better than this to show your child just how very much you love them.
Last thing! I came across this nifty page with all sorts of facts and statistics on homeschooling that is an easy and enlightening read [x] and a quick shout out to my many friends that brainstormed with me on this (readers, I hope you know you’re getting the best advice out there thanks to them! ^^ )
Stayed out a little late again last night watching the US soccer game! After the game the dogs were restless and kind of kept me up last night, but I still made it up for the run! 😊👍
We want to have an American Outlaws Chapter (US soccer support group) in Las Cruces. Randomly close to 15 people showed up to watch at the same sports bar last night! My brother even showed up, that is him in the red if you couldn’t tell! 😊😊I talked to the manager about it and asked if they would be willing to host every US soccer game with sound and he said it sounds great and would bring it up in meetings this morning!
I have also been on a mission to clean up my house and yard. We ripped out a half dead ugly bush and got all the weeds! I need to get all the bags and things out this weekend!
Gods, some people are so damn rude! If some of you don't want to wait then save some money and buy the goddamn mangas yourself, scanlation groups do not exist to please your rude demanding ass! God people like that makes me so upset. Guys, you do and amazing job and I am sure that there are other people that think so as well and don't mind having to wait a bit longer to read. We all appreciate what you guys do for us, and will support the group no matter what. So take your time ♥ ♥
You’re one sweet cinnamon roll, thank you.. >///<
And thank you for understanding our current dillema, we do wish every reader was like you, haha.
We still believe in quality over quantity, so yes things will get real slow..
discord is filled with dark energy. my discord adventures include: eat your d20 instead of making choices, merle highchurch overhears taako talking to satan, dab emoji, us customary measurement support group, good boy griffin vs vore kink griffin, necromancy puns, and in-depth analysis on politics in relation to the teenage mutant ninja turtles. it's kind of just a bullshit free-for-all
discord is GENUINELY the most chaotic-aligned of all the chat clients. see like, what you listed would seem fucking BANANAS for any other chat client, but since you say its discord im just nodding thoughtfully and thinking that “hm, sounds about right.”
