why i make

jeremy: throughout the seasons, he just kind of finds more of his place among his people, and he just gets comfortable with accepting that this is kind of like his new family

jeremy: i can’t say what’s goin’ down later on… and such and such and such, but there’s like a shake up with responsibilities. and i guess he kind of steps up a little bit and takes the mantel and he kind of owns it, and he definitely matures… he definitely matures throughout the show

me:

You know what I love about the title of Christmas special?

The fact that it is a play on “once upon a time.” It’s a phase, an opening line at the beginning of stories, but not just any stories. There’s a particular genre that uses it more than others, that we’ve all must of read at some point as small children.  

The genre is simply what Moffat’s era has been since the beginning and how it will end:

a fairytale. 

  • Me: if I wait to eat until right as I go to work, maybe I'll be full for longer and not get hungry during my shift.
  • The Me that has common sense: *marches around banging pots and pans together* OR MAYBE YOU COULD TRY EATING REGULAR MEALS FOR ONCE, YOU UTTER PRINCESS OF NONSENSE
//// me rereading Jhin’s color text (for a friend of course)

me at first

and then

finishing it

meanwhile Jhin

You know you’re on the right track

when you get to write the sentence “ and then his brother rather willingly joined the space mafia” 

nnngh I made ice cream sandwiches earlier tonight and they’ve finally hardened enough that I could actually eat one without it melting all over me

but it is also 11:15 at night and I should bed

hey yo @ horrible customers
please don’t call me doll. don’t call me sweetheart. or dear. or honey. or baby.
it’s not ok. you may think it’s harmless, or a compliment, but it makes me uncomfortable.
no, I am not being “overly sensitive.”

why does it bother me? a lot of reasons. You may mean well when you say it. It may be a habit or you’re trying to give me a compliment. either way it still makes me uncomfortable. you wouldn’t call my male coworkers a pet name like that, would you? no? whys that? you don’t want to “compliment” them?

it bothers me because the people who are allowed to call me those names are family. my mom calls me honey. my boyfriend calls me doll and sweetheart. you are a stranger. You don’t get to use personal pet names on me, a stranger. that’s not okay.

you wanna know another reason why it bothers me? I am 5'2. you are big and tall and unfamiliar and weigh twice as much as I do. and I can’t tell you not to call me names like that, because if that makes you upset? there’s not much I can do to defend myself, and yes, that scares me.

Just take your damn coffee and go.

sincerely,
Not Your Sweetheart
