waiting for certain people to get online

Getting a full diagnosis for Autism is a long process and is a very serious decision. 

It takes months of waiting, it takes countless appointments that’re expensive, and on top of that you need to be FUCKING FOR CERTAIN that you want to go through with it. 

People online tend to forget that Autism is a very serious mental and medical condition that people live with for the rest of their lives. Autism is considered a disability and it affects people very differently around the world. Someone can be severely handicapped and someone else can have a high functioning range of comprehension. That’s why the medical field refers to people who have Autism / Asperger’s Syndrome as being on the Autism Spectrum (ASD).

That’s why it kinda makes me angry when people self diagnose themselves as having ASD without consulting to their doctor / therapist. There is a whole process of getting this shit taken care of and a lot of people who’re serious about getting help to fit in to society have gone through so much in order to make that happen. 

Whether it’s to help their concentration or their anxiety or their communication skills, people are getting diagnosed so they can become a high functioning adult. 

That doesn’t mean that they’re ashamed of the fact they’re on the Autism Spectrum, going out and getting diagnosed means they want to get help to learn how to live with what they have. 

And this can go towards any disability both medical and mental: If it affects your everyday life to the point where you can’t function then you need to put your money towards getting help so you can start living your life again. 

I have nothing against people who self diagnose that don’t have the money to get a full diagnosis but that should be your goal once you have a job and you have money to get that taken care of. 

But if you just self identify & use Autism as another label to make yourself seem special: Fuck you. Fuck you very much. You’re not helping people who’re on the Autism Spectrum, you’re being a fucking disgrace and actually hurting real people who live with ASD. By using it as another label, you discredit everyone else who is trying to be a part of society while learning how to live with what they have.

You waited anxiously for the lights on the stage to go down, your heart pumping faster than it ever had before. Your friend gripped your hand beside you, her Jaebum fan shaking on both you and her as you looked at the empty stage.

You waited your whole life for this. You couldn’t begin to think of the words that you could possibly say to them–or more importantly, to him.

It seemed like only a few months ago, you and your friend waited in a waiting room a ticket site all morning, hands shaking and waiting for the clock to strike 10 AM to try and get Fanmeet tickets for the one and only GOT7. You had prepared for months beforehand, as soon as the fanmeet tour was announced, you began to save every penny you had just so you could attempt to snag two of the highest tier tickets; one for you, and one for your friend. And somehow, with shaky fingers and your quick reaction time to the clock striking 10, you were able to get them.

You waited online as soon as you were able to line up, ending up being one of the first people online early morning on the cold winter day, but you didn’t mind. You began to think of his smiling face and how, in mere minutes, you were going to maybe hold his hand, and that made it all worth it.

It’s pretty incredible to think about how many people I have met because of @taylorswift. I know someone in just about every state as well as multiple countries around the world and I probably never would have met any of them if it wasn’t for Taylor. Because of her music I have made amazing friends and have the best memories of traveling to shows in random cities, waiting in line for what seems like forever to get the best spot, and just talking to people online. It’s so crazy how life works and how people come into your life for certain reasons. I’m so glad Taylor Swift became a part of my life because it’s changed my life for the better.

saywhatjenn  asked:

People who don't think the bullet went through her forehead aren't watching the same she we are.

I’m sort of baffled why anyone who actually looked into it wouldn’t know this.

I mean. Fine, that some people are casual viewers and aren’t really paying attention. Whatever. I’m not really side-eyeing them at this point. But, if you’re the sort of person who goes “Wait, where was she shot?” then checks it out online and continues to deny what the VFX guy and our own eyes tell us?

I just can’t help you.

I just can’t.

I’m getting more annoyed about this, the longer I process it that some people got that far and still think it’s her chin. It’s not.

This isn’t debatable. She was canonically shot up into the forehead.

I guess tptb could always go back and retcon, which would be cheap of them. But baring that possibility, she was shot in the forehead and that’s it.

Honestly, I’m almost certain that people only argue against it because they understand how deeply it doesn’t make sense that she’s dead if that’s where the entrance wound is.

And that is where the entrance wound is.

And it doesn’t make sense that she’d be dead.

Oh look, ^ it’s the whole reason I joined TD in the first place.

On the right hand of the first picture, you see me.  It’s been a long day.  My shirt is rumpled.  As I now see but didn’t notice at the time, I’m even slouching.  I’d been waiting outside (part of the time in the rain) for many hours, either sitting on bare pavement or standing, hoping to get into a very special event.

You see, free tickets to see a certain someone give a talk ran out in ninety minutes the day they became available (even as the phone and online systems crashed at the venue).  However, seeing as a friend of mine discovered that tickets were set to expire at 6:45 PM, and since the lecture began at 7:00 PM, me and said friend actually made it in due to those people who did not use their own issued tickets.  We couldn’t believe it!

After one of the greatest lectures I have ever heard, the famous scientist listened to me during the Q&A session.  I first thanked him for promoting science literacy for all kinds of science, not just his own area of research (mostly astronomy).  I told him I appreciated this especially because I was a biology student with the goal of dinosaur paleontology.

Right there, in front of I don’t know how many thousands of people (many more were watching a live broadcast), he goes, “So you like dinosaurs?”

“Yes!” I replied.

“You know it’s one of our comets that killed the dinosaurs?  Astronomy one, paleontology zero!"   The crowd roared together in laughter, myself included.  Never have I before seen such a brilliant intellectual be so hilariously fun and energetic at the same time.  (My actual question for him was, "What is your one favorite memory in your scientific career?"  His answer was a commencement speech he once gave.  He said that his own career goal was a Ph.D., and then everything after that was icing on the cake, so giving such a commencement speech was something very special to him.)

And then, soon thereafter, he signed my book, he took my offered hand, shook it, and I went home.

Ladies and gentleman, that great man that I was so privileged to meet last night was none other than Neil deGrasse Tyson.

THE OCCASION!

I left my blog last Saturday with ninety-nine followers after a really, really hard day. My post for the evening said that it would be wonderful if I could get just one more follower to reach my first ever milestone here on Nico. 

Today, I have one hundred and twenty

I know follower counts are just numbers, but coming back to find that I’d not only made my milestone but passed it by more than twenty means the world to me. Knowing there are so many of you interested in this dork ( who, for the purposes of the occasion, is smiling here; good luck getting that expression out of him in RP ), and in me, and in my writing, is the best feeling in the world, and I can’t thank any of you enough for all the positivity, the wonderful interactions, and the welcome Nico and I have received.

THE GIVEAWAY! 

There’ll be two winners. They can choose either a blog theme OR 25 icons of an actor of their choice! Here are some examples:


  • Mbf @unanchxred – that’s me!
  • Reblogs and likes both count, but a reblog would be extra cool. It gets the word out and all! And you can reblog as much as you like. <3
  • Giveaway ends Friday, October 30, at 12:00 PM.
