i’m at that point where i try to study but i physically can’t bring myself to so i get really stressed and i dont know if i care too much or i dont care at all but it makes me overwhelmed and all i want to do is sleep
It’s easy to say from a position of privilege that today is just another day, that life will go on but it most certainly is not just another day. My heart is broken, my faith is shattered, my mind is numb, and my soul is bleeding.
Not for myself, no, but for my marginalized brothers and sisters. For the oppressed, for the homeless, for the poor, for my friends and neighbors in the lgbtq+ community, for Black lives, Latinx lives, Asian - American lives, Muslim lives, for my sisters and my sisters of color, for the youth, and for all who have face injustice in a land that is suppose to protect them.
I am so, deeply, horrendously, sorry. This country has failed you. We have ignored your suffering and elected to office someone who has built his campaign on hate and prejudice. It is unacceptable. It is deplorable. It is disgusting.
It’s not much, a mere flicker of a flame to gale force winds, but I will continue to fight for you. I will forever stand by your side to see you win. I will always give you my unconditional love. We will fight through these next four years, and the four years after that. We will persevere. We are the future.
My apology is simple but my love for you is strong. I see you, I know your fear, and I will stand with you until the end of time. I am so sorry.
These are SIN fics that have been rec’d to me and are on my to-read list, some of them I have started reading, but I haven’t finished.
Just keep in mind, I have yet to read these completely, but being honest the kudos and comments on these fics speak for themselves. Feel free to rec me more fics if you haven’t seen them on either of my sin lists [Previous SIN Rec List]
…OR if you want to rec me non-SIN fics, please feel free to do so! save me from the sin [Regular MLB Fic Rec]
Athena Polis, Protector of Cities, and Patron of Democracy, I do not believe you have failed us. I believe we have failed ourselves.
It is because of this that I ask You to guide us. Show us the path of least harm, even if it is not of least resistance. Show us how to protect our neighbors and how to believe again in our own power. And should we regress to war, then gift us the strength to fight as if it is our last hope.
Athena Polis, my Goddess, my Matron, please protect us from ourselves.
In London he felt his teachers were more interested in trying to make him sound British than in actually teaching him to act. “They were concerned a lot about the way that I delivered the words, and I was like, ‘This is not my first language.’ There was an assumption that you were there because you wanted to work on the British stage.” […]
He became hugely successful, on a level that drama school had not prepared him for at all. His instructors were later forced to agree that they had been wrong. Bernal remembers getting into conversation with them six or seven years after he had left the school. “[One of the directors] said: ‘Man, we have to apologise.’ I was like, ‘Why?’ ‘Yeah, because we were failing you because of who you were. And we were not teaching you theatre. We were teaching you how to act in English.’ And I was like, ‘Yeah, you bastards!’” [x]
”I ride in on an elk, played by a horse named Moose. Moose is the biggest horse in New Zealand. I had this one day when I was shooting with him where I would say my line. He could feel it coming and would start kind of moving out of his mark. And it would never fail. I would say “We have come to tell you”, and then he would start moving.” - Lee Pace
TalesFromTheFrontDesk: I apologize, we have to walk you.. to a hotel 40 minutes away.
My first tale here, but I read this sub everyday.
I am a night auditor at a pretty nice hotel within a large chain. Tonight, we and every hotel within a 40 mile radius are sold out. I managed to walk about 5 people to hotels no more than 10 minutes away because of the dreaded Expedia showing we had rooms.. until the last guest. Guys, the closet hotel was a 4o minute drive for the guest to another hotel that was two stars lower than ours.. uh oh. I was ready. I put my big boy pants on and was prepared for the guest to tear me a new one.
The guest arrives. Those big boy pants start to slide off as she gives me the name on her reservation. I start to explain the situation, and I could feel my voice shake. Confrontation is not my strong suit. Guys.. SHE IS THE NICEST PERSON EVER. She says she understands and she will go back to do some things with her horses for tonight, declined the (prepaid) room 40 minutes away and will come back tomorrow for the rest of her two night stay CHEERFULLY. I could’ve cried. I comped room for tomorrow night and gave her free breakfast. We have some 6 a.m checkouts (I’ll clean the room) and I told her she could come back back at 7 a.m to check in if she wanted to which she said would be great. THANK YOU UNICORN.
For every ❄️ I receive I’ll write a note of encouragement and tag a blog ( not accepting)
@ballparkmassacre / all your blogs tbh- I think you’re such a lovely person, we haven’t spoken as much as I would have liked but whenever we have you never fail to make me smile. I hope we can write more on all of your blogs because you write all of them fantastically, like I’m a little jealous of how well you can write. You’re awesome friendo <3
@elenaloveablekotsala- You’ve someone who i’ve known for a while and you’re such an amazing and supportive person. I love seeing you pop up in my activity or my askbox. Thank you for sending me all the things and being the great person you are. Connor always wants to bother Elena & Leo
@oncesang- I adore you and your Beth. You write phenomanly and you bring life to a character who i’ll be honest wasn’t my favourite in the show. You help me to see the parts of her I missed when I was watching. You’re so talented and I think you’re fantastic.
@beer-to-shotgun - I love you and your blog more than I can say. Connor just wants to protect your muse and attempt to show care (he’s not too great at that) but your muse makes he want to try. And of course in one instance he wants to beat the shit out of him but that’s okay. You’re amazing and I hope we can write and talk more!
@ruggedasfuck- I really love your blog okay? Like I hope we can do all the Connor x Negan things because you’re incredbile. You bring things to Negan that I just love and I wish to make your heart hurt and make you feel all the things.
We let down those we care about, sometimes consciously.
Song- “The Girl”. Artist- City and Colour.
We hurt people around us, we cut them down, we undermine their value in our lives. Some people leave us. Some don’t see the repair as worth it.
But some do. Some see our mess and decide, “I can take that. I’ll fix it.”
In “The Girl”, City and Colour says, “You don’t ask for much, and I couldn’t give you much. I don’t do right by you, but for some reason you love me.”
It starts out as a statement, and then it grows into a declaration. It grows into a group praise of “The Girl” who has sacrificed and doesn’t expect anything back. This could be either sweet or unhealthy, who knows.
But you have a friend who will love you regardless of what you’ve done.
