when-do-we-move-in!

I have been thinking a lot about the nature of homes. What makes a place ours. The last step you skip, the crack in the wall. The shadows you all ignore. The place you knocked with your elbow and almost broke your bone. Where he first got stitches. Small items that have no owner but instead appear out of the ether and remain for years. The knife that cuts better than the rest. Is home the house or the one place you can read without anyone bothering you. When we make people our homes do we just move in our memories. Learn to skip over talking about her, he doesn’t like it. The place you knocked heads. Words you should have left unsaid. Words that you repeated just for the delight of saying them. Maybe there’s a reason it’s hard to move out from people. Maybe once you get used to how the ceiling groans when it settles or how one of the door hinges is loose it just … gets harder to picture anywhere else. Even if the windows leak you know what you’re dealing with. Everyone else is new and scary. At least there’s a roof. Even if it’s sometimes awful. You see the good stuff when you close your eyes. And hindsight always lies.

Axl: I can’t help it. I either stand there bored or I run back and forth. And I kinda get into dancing. I didn’t even know that I like what I do. I just, I looked down at my feet and go “what am I doing now?” but I feel like if I stand there, then people think “oh this is boring” so I gotta do something and I just try to do whatever happens. It’s a lot of fun. I thought about taking dance lessons and stuff but then I was worried about getting too stale, being too much like organized and everything. I like the spontaneity of just whatever happens, keeps it real raw and fresh. If it got too ballet’ed out, I couldn’t handle that.

people scared of jyp when got7 get back lol but then there’s this guy

For all wlw, media repeatedly drives home that reciprocated love for women will be temporary and come with consequences. We’re taught that from childhood through every single story that involves two women loving each other, only for one to die. It’s one part of compulsory heterosexuality. 

For bi women, often there is a ‘moral’ lesson, ending in them finding a lasting happiness with a man afterwards. This version of compulsory heterosexuality is very blatant and biphobic– you must choose a ‘side,’ and there is only one ‘right choice.’ I’m certain that this hurts bi women in ways I can’t fully understand or feel the weight of. 

For lesbians, there is a different lesson– just by existing we are wrong.  By loving other women we are harming them. They are only free when they can “move on” from us. We do not get forever-love, every connection is temporary and fleeting; we do not get to envision ourselves making it to old age, much less with a partner. 

Even though I know this is just homophobic cultural messages at work, even though I know this is pure media bias, I still can’t help but partially internalize it. 

The first time I saw a happy wlw couple in their 50s, I was stunned. My whole world opened up realizing that it was possible. I had never seen an example of myself lasting past 25. It was unthinkable to me that lesbians were even allowed to have a sense of “future” to hope for. 

When everything around us tell us that we are only good for a chapter in someone else’s life, only a moral lesson to overcome, that we are destined for loneliness and early death and causing others pain, it’s not a surprise that so many lesbians struggle with self-worth and depression. Of course we do.

We all carry something with us. Of course, it’s nice if we travel with someone who can help lighten the load. But usually, it’s easier to just drop what we’ve been carrying so we can get home that much sooner assuming, of course, there will be someone there to greet us when we arrive. Why do we clutch at this baggage, even when we’re desperate to move on? Because we all know there’s a chance we might let go too soon.

still riding high from yesterday, i have new sheets on my bed, i’m taking the day off today and i’m going to do my shopping and do some cleaning too, i’ve got my two favourite seminars tomorrow, i’m also seeing some more theatre, i’m having dinner with my friends on saturday, and then we’re doing a run of the first three acts of macbeth on sunday! i’m so v lucky & embarrassingly emo about how happy i am and how far i’ve come from this time in 2016

IKEA + Time + $ = Furnished Apt

Our daughter wrapped up her 2nd graphic design co-op before Christmas so last week we took her back to school and moved her into the unfurnished apartment she’s renting for a few semesters.

We needed four IKEA trips and plenty of elbow grease but when we left two days later she had a bed, dresser, desk/table, bookcase, nightstand, chair, coffee table, TV table and couch. It took two people just to carry out the left over card board boxes. The IKEA stuff looks nice, but it’s all particle board so it won’t do well if/when we have to move it.

@rosecoloured replied to your post “I would be very happy if I never had to watch a scene of Sherlock…”

The fact that this happened more than once…

EXACTLY!

I count three - Mary, Magnussen (from the deleted scene) and Smith. The Mary scene was not so bad for me, personally, but the CAM scene made me physically sick when I watched it. The Smith one was the worst in the moment, but that’s mainly because I was already compromised from the earlier angry-high-armed-man scene. Watching them in isolation, the CAM scene was definitely the worst.

These past couple days since I have been back at home, there have been a select few days in which I spend the day doing completely nothing. I literally stayed in the same position in my bed for 5+ hours reading Twilight (which I randomly picked after 2 years), actually watching the Twilight movies, watching Parks and Recreation and spiralling down, down, down into watching random vlogs on YouTube. Now this is perfectly OK. We need to rest sometimes. I had been out all day everyday the previous week and my brain said to me “Nope, you’re staying INSIDE today and in bed”. Our bodies do work extremely hard everyday when we’re constantly up and moving around, so it’s quite vital that you take some days ‘off’ and just laze around. Our minds and bodies need time to just recollect because let’s be honest. School is just about to start for me and how many more days of lazing around will I get? Soon enough I’ll be so busy that the idea of just staying curled up in bed oblivious to the outside world will seek absurd. I’m not saying spend EVERY day like this; be productive most days and just take a few to simply nestle in your duvet and watch Buzzfeed all day. Because it really does do you good to just relax.

anonymous asked:

Do we know how old Finn was when he and Jake moved into the treehouse? Or was there a significant period that marked that memorable moment? I feel like there is, but I'm drawing a blank.

Naw, it wasn’t talked about at all yet. Hopefully there is time for them to at least mention it briefly.

ellyjellybear  asked:

This may be increasingly obvious, (and I'm not 100% sure whether you'd like to answer the question) but when if Seiji's 'for anything that moves do we mean he's pan too? Between Sylas, the crocodile husk and Sejii's general, slight.. fuckboy air? there are well mixed signals too.

yeah he’s bi 

The flatmate that moved out last month left Ben and Jerry’s in the fridge and I might just eat it to be kind to my throat and also because it’s leftover and ice cream is amazing? I bet though that when we do the moving out clean later this week she’ll be all “heya pal just need to collect my microwave and also the Ben and Jerry’s in the freezer” I can feel it in my bones she’ll remember that ice cream. I’m still eating it though.

casismyguardianangel  asked:

Okay first off hun how's the move going so far? I hope it's going okay for you! Also I hope you're family isn't being "too much" and already snapping at each other (that happened REALLY quickly with mine when we first moved). Hope you're doing okay!

It’s going as good as can be, there’s just a lot to be done! My dad isn’t in town right now, (conveniently) leaving me, my stepmom, and my stepbrother to do basically everything.

And my step mom and I (thankfully we’re like best friends) have just been trying to pack everything into boxes so we can get it ALL into storage. Since we’re gonna be living in hotels for a while, we can only bring so much per person which can be quite stressful.

And then there’s the whole cleaning factor because the house we are residing in right now is being rented (we didn’t know how long we were going to be here *considering we were living in a travel camper at the time and were getting sick of the tight space between the five of us not including out dogs* had needed up just renting.

**That however turned to be a very big mistake considering we found out a week afterward we signed the lease that the job my dad had taken basically lied about everything from payment to housing soooooo** we need to clean every inch of the place so that we don’t get charged for anything.

But on a positive note, this will be our last move for a while because all we will be doing is going from hotel to hotel with our limited belongings for a bit rather than packing and unpacking like we have (did I mention we’ve had to do that at least 3 times in the last year alone?) so that helps.

I’m so sorry this just turned into a huge rant but yeah that’s basically what’s going on right now. I will try my hardest (no guarantee) to get another fic out tonight, but who knows how exhausted I’ll be, (currently eating dinner as I type this before getting back to work!) but thank you so much for checking in, I love you every single one of you. ❤
