It was days like this that were the hardest.  The days where your mind decided to replay one of the best weeks of your life.

Fifteen years ago you lived in this small coastal town in southern Maine with your mom.  Every summer, for as long as you could remember, you worked in your mom’s bar.  The summer of your senior year was no different.  It was going to be the last time you worked there before you left for college in the fall.  The town was buzzing with tourists and the bar was full but still you noticed him right away.  He was tall with a cocky smile and the greenest eyes you had ever seen.

Your breath caught in your throat when he noticed you staring at him.  Heat flushed your face as you quickly looked down concentrating on wiping down the bar.  The next time you looked up he was gone.  You retrieved clean glasses from the kitchen and walking back out you almost squeaked when you saw him sitting at the bar.  You stayed behind the bar stacking the clean glasses when he leaned over.

“Hey, sweetheart,” he said smiling at you.  “How ‘bout a beer?” he asked.

“How ‘bout some ID?” you asked cocking your eyebrow.

He couldn’t be much older than you and you’d just turned eighteen.  He laughed and licked his lips.

“Sure,” he said reaching into his back pocket.

He pulled out his wallet before handing you his ID.  You looked at it and looked back up at him.

“So, Freddy, what brings you here from Minnesota?  By the way you look great for 48,” you laughed handing his ID back.  “Nice try.”

“Shit,” he looked through his wallet again.  “Sorry, that was a joke, my brother, he…”

Green eyes handed you another ID.  You looked down at it and handed it back to him.  Hmm, 23.

“Ok, Dean, what’ll it be?”

He smiled, his cocky grin finding its place on his face once more.

“What’d you recommend, sweetheart.”

“We’ve got a nice blonde on tap,” you suggest.“

Then I’ll take that.”

You poured his beer setting it down in front of him before going back to stacking glasses.  Dean stayed at the bar drinking his beer and looking around.  As you stacked your last glass he caught your eye.“

So what’s your name, sweetheart?”

“Why do you want to know?”

“I always like to know the names of beautiful women.”

You laughed; he was cheesy, but also kind of adorable.

Greetings wagecucks. Mid-week stress wearing you down?

While you slave away for the boss man, I indulge myself in the finest theories produced by mankind.

And while you go home to watch brain dead TV as a follow-up to your brain dead jobs, I have all the time in the world to enrich myself with material that puzzled the greatest minds of the 20th century.

But don’t worry. I’m sure you can enrich yourself on the weekends. That is if you do not have a hangover from the Friday night drinking you partake in to ease the misery of your pathetic lives.

anonymous asked:

Any advice for teenagers just becoming adults?

Hm.  Let me think…

1. Learn to cook.  Basic stuff. You don’t need to get too fancy with it - learn to make rice, noodles, things that are easily prepped.  Don’t neglect or feel ashamed about your microwave.  That thing is a time saver and does a damned good job making your life easier.

2. Keep a budget.  Learn how much goes in and how much comes out.  Map out what bills you have and how much money you got coming in.  Prioritize your financies. Make a line item in your budget for “me money” if you can. This is your blow money.  Use it wisely and for those times when shit seems bad and you really just need to go see a movie with a friend or buy the thing.  Keep cash on hand too.  Plastic is great and all but not every situation allows it to be used.

3. Self care is important.  Don’t neglect you.  Whatever that involves, take care of yourself.

4. Remember that libraries exist.  Free wifi, books, programming and many other amenities we all take for granted and forget about.  Most libraries now embrace online digital services too like hoopla.

5. Read.  Watch movies.  Listen to music.  Enrich your mind and learn things, either for substance or pleasure.  Never pass up a learning experience or a chance to experience something new.  

6. Make connections, social or otherwise.  Knowing the right person or resource can make a world of difference. 

7. Set boundaries.  This bit is important - high school is over with and you are an adult and entering into a society that has a shit ton of expectations for you. Setting your boundaries for yourself and those in your world can save you a lot of energy, time and effort - never let anyone violate them and if they do, let them go.  It’s easy to say, I know, and in practice it can be hard but trust me, it is very important to keep true to yourself and your boundaries.

8.  If you go out to a restaurant or a bar, tip your server. Be good to service people and retail workers.  

9. Trust your gut.  Instinct is something we often neglect.  Don’t.

10. If you live with your folks and continue to do so after graduation or becoming an adult, there is no shame in staying on until you are financially able and ready to go into the world.  Of course, everyone’s situation is different and circumstances can prevent this but I feel like so many people are still having the whole “you turn 18, you get out of your parent’s home” mentality driven their way.  There is no shame in living at home.  

11. If you live in a decent sized town or city, learn what you have for public transporation.  It’s a wonderful resource if you have it.

12. Find a “safe space”.  What do I mean by this?  Well, find a place (your home, the local library, a friend’s house, a park - something easily accessible to you and safe) that you can go and just be you.  A place to clear your head and focus.  Somewhere you don’t have to worry.  Everyone needs a sanctuary.

13. Carry a knife and/or multitool on you.  No, I’m serious.  This piece of advice has saved my ass more times than I can count.  And while I’m thinking of it, carry these things too: a list of any medications and medical conditions you have, emergency contact info, a bit of cash, identification.  

14. Make friends.  Keep those friends from your childhood if you can but only if they are decent adult friends too.  Friends make all the difference in the world.

And finally…

15. Pay it forward.  If good comes your way, do good in return.  Just… don’t be a dick.  I can’t stress this enough.  People may be shitty and the world may seem dark but cast your own little light into it and life will be that much more rewarding. 

I really hope all that makes sense.  

This is the four-thousandth post on this blog, and marks almost exactly four months since the original post on the blog (though I didn’t really get started until the following week).  I have done 65 episodes of Steven Universe, received 1631 ask screenshots from my ask screeners, and have reached 1752 followers as of this post.

Four months ago, when I started this blog, I thought to myself–”Will, this is probably not going to work out.  It’s a new format.  You’re a funny guy, but the last time you heckled a show, the fans came out of the woodwork to scold you.  This is gonna last a few episodes and then you’ll be done.

Besides, how good can this Steven Universe show even be?  You’ll probably get bored and wander off like you did with your last three projects, and also Fallout: New Vegas.”

Hoo boy, was I wrong.

Not only did I get to watch some of the finest episodes of modern cartoons I’ve ever seen (SPACE RACE SPACE RACE SPAAAACE RAAAACE), I’ve met tons of wonderful people, enriched my life, laughed like a madman, and…and here’s my favorite bit, mind you…

…I’ve made you guys smile.

That’s why I do what I do; I love making people smile.  Every time I see someone cracking up in the reblogs and tags, my heart swells a little.  Every time I get a message about how I’ve helped turn someone’s day around, it buoys me for the rest of mine.  Every time I see someone working their way through the blog chronologically in the notes, I grin like a madman.  To think I’ve inspired so much joy…it’s helped me turn my depression around, these last few months.  It’s helped me in ways you guys don’t even know.  This little blog has been more fulfilling than 99% of the things I’ve done in my life.

I’m almost caught up on Steven Universe, but for those who’ve followed recently, that won’t be the end of Loreweaver Universe.  The next show I’ll be doing is a little ditty called Over the Garden Wall, followed by Madoka Magica.  After that?  We’ll see, we’ll see.  There’s a long list of things people have asked me to liveblog, and once I get recording equipment and a new computer, I’ll be adding video game playthroughs to the list.

But in the meantime?

Thank you.

Thank you so much.

I’m so glad I could meet you all.
