Advice please, please and thank

I have to rant about my crush cos my anxiety is kicking in. Friday, he didn’t come to school, he sent me a morning text and that’s it. After school I text and ask why he wasn’t at school, he was sick. So we text for a while but then he stops replying so I’m like oki he’s sick he might text later or tomorrow, he never did, so yesterday by the way I ate so fucking much like if you cut me open I’m pure calories and diabetes, anyways later on in the evening I send him a meme cos he’s sick I wanted to make him feel better, he didn’t respond either. Right now my anxiety is spiraling, what if something happened ? Or am I just being selfish, cos he could be very well asleep, maybe he’s trying to get better, maybe his phone broke or is dead, but if I don’t see him tomorrow at school I might flip cos I’ve been dying to see him and talk to him in gym class, everyday that’s what motivates me, and I am trying not to think negatively but I’m scared and he’s not responding and I don’t want to be a freak and start texting and asking if he’s oki, I just hope he’s okay cos we were just getting started on our friendship in the beginning of February any advice cos at this point if he doesn’t text today or isn’t in school tomorrow I’m going to lose it…I’m so scared, like do I seem obsessed ? I hate having crushes, when I do I act like an idiot ugh

Taz: Gabe… he’s like Adia. He’s going to get older, and then one day he’ll just–

Charity: –he’ll be gone. Temperance knows that. We talked about it for a long time when they first got together. She knows what being with him means.

Taz: She might know what it means, but she can’t imagine what it’s like. I mean, spending a lifetime with someone – it seems like it’ll just go on forever, but then he’ll get older, and one day he’ll get sick, and then one day she’ll wake up, and he’ll just be gone – and there’s this hole inside you that you think you can’t ever fill, and you have to learn how to just keep going on with your life despite that, and–

Charity: This is what you’ve been worrying about all night? My sister’s boyfriend dying eighty years from now?

It’s really difficult to talk about gynecological health because there’s so much confusion and misinformation about vaginas out there. like so many people are terrified that their normal, healthy vagina is “wrong” or “gross” or that it smells bad or looks ugly. But you can’t make any blanket “your vagina is just fine” statements because there are plenty of people who don’t know how to recognize yeast infections or bacterial vaginosis or UTI’s or PCOS. So like, “hey kids don’t worry, your vagina is okay except it might also be very sick and it’s virtually impossible to know because you didn’t get any sex ed. good luck!”

Calling gay sex sinful is literally conservative rhetoric so @ straight girls despite your shipping if you call ur gay couple smut fanfic a “sin” and talk about needing jesus im gonna need you to shut the fuck up because at this point ur no better than some old white conservative shouting that gay people are disgusting and dirty and sinful

sorry straight girls you dont get a pass on homophobia because u might think ur shipping is activism or you just love the gays but dont support lesbians or think about the other members of the lgbt community. @ straight girls perhaps instead of pretending like ur not homophobic just try and not spread homophobic rhetoric and actually call out homophobia in the fandoms ur in cause im real sick and tired of ppl calling gay couples and gay sex “sinful”

4 tips for getting ahead after falling behind

So ‘it’ happened. You got sick, you scheduled too much at once, you had a bad day (or week). We’ve all been there and it sucks. And now you’re behind and you’re feeling overwhelmed. These are just a few tips I have for getting back on track (and hopefully ahead) after falling behind.

  • If you are behind on homework it’s time to prioritize. You’re at a point where it might be worth it to let the tiny assignments that aren’t worth very much sit on the back burner until you’ve dealt with the important stuff. So what are your priorities?
    • Do you have work in a class that you’re doing really well in and you feel like you can set it aside and hand it in late, or you can afford to miss the assignment without screwing up your final grade? Great, set it aside and leave that stress for later.
    • Do you have work in a class you’re terrified of failing? Okay, focus in on that. If you don’t eliminate the chief point of stress first you’re going to find it very hard to focus on anything else.
  • Do you have exams coming up that you haven’t studied for? This is rough but you need to decide whether sleep or studying is better for you. There’s no wrong choice here; it’s different for everyone. I am a ‘needs sleep’ person but my roommate is a ‘stay up and get shit done’ person. If you know you can’t function without a decent amount of sleep then ixnay the idea of an all night all together.
    •  Now that you’ve figured that out it’s time to focus; what topics are you doing the worst in? Get started on figuring out what it is you don’t know. 
    • Also make sure to write down what you do know and keep looking over that constantly so you don’t lose the knowledge you already have. 
    • Now figure out what methods you actually have time for; if you’re in a crunch you may not have time for flashcards. I find that when it a crunch it’s helpful to essentially begin compiling a cheat sheet.
    • Write down everything you could possibly need for the exam as though you were going to be able to take it into the exam. Make it clear! Make it easy to glance at! Don’t waist time on making it look pretty!
    • As you go through creating the sheet make sure that you would know what kind of problem or topic that the concept/formula would go with and how you would use it to solve a problem.
    • The above means that you aren’t just copying over formulas, dates, quotes, etc.; You are committing the CONTEXT to your memory and if need be to your sheet.
  •  Is the problem reading? Heaven knows that’s been mine this week! First thing first: READ for the NEXT class. Don’t start with what you should’ve read last week; playing catch up is stressful and means that you may do a ton of work and still not be prepared for the next class.
    •  If you come across parts that don’t make sense because you haven’t read the earlier stuff skip back and skim those bits. 
    • Once you’ve read for the next class you can decide what the best option is for continuing. 
    • Either start at the back end of what you’re behind on or work your way backwards.
  • Is it an essay? Is it more than one? Okie doke. Break those kiddos down into the sections you think you need; intro, para 1, para 2, etc, conclusion. 
    • Alright, now give those sections titles and maybe like a brief summary. 
    • Okay now you’re ready; pick one section from one of your papers to start on. It doesn’t have to be the intro you just need to get started. I like to start with ones that require a bit of research on my part so that I can really get the ball rolling and start collecting articles. 
    • Then you should either set a timer for about thirty minutes and switch off every time the timer goes off, or (my preferred method) write until you finish the section before deciding which one to work on next. 
    • The real key is making sure that you change sections when you find yourself losing steam even if it’s in the middle of a sentence. Sometimes I start a sentence and then forget where I was going with it and it throws off the whole game so by changing sections you allow yourself to refresh and come back with new eyes.

That’s what I’ve got for now, I hope that some of this helps. I also want to remind you that you are not a bad person for getting behind whatever the reason was. Sometimes it happens even when you’re paying attention so try not to worry too much about it! If you find yourself getting overwhelmed and way too stressed out remember to let yourself breath and walk away for a few minutes. I wish you the best of luck and my ask/messenger is always open if you need anything.

I know that you’ve grown accustomed to keeping things to yourself. It hurts to tell people and only get half assed sympathy. You no longer trust people, my stained glass heart. I’m sorry that you feel that way, but if it helps, I’m here for you. In every way that the sun blends into the summer flowers, I’ll be that little light we love to feel on our skin when the sprinkles break. It does hurt to open up, especially if people don’t really listen. So I’ve been listening and honestly, I’ll always be here for you. You’re going to be okay, and if the sky does decide to fall down, don’t you worry. I’ll catch each raindrop and give it a name, I’ll give your tears another reason to dry. I might get sick, I might grow old, but as long as souls can be colorful– I’ll always try to be there.
—  I’m here for you.

So I’m probably going to get hate for saying this but tbh I don’t care about the skin color of TV characters or movie characters. At all.

I don’t friggin care about “whitewashing”

I don’t care if the entire cast is black

I don’t care if the entire cast is white

I don’t care if the entire cast is purple with polkadots made out of the friggin color from H.P. Lovecraft’s “The Colour Out of Space”

LISTEN: You don’t need a character to have the same skin color as you to be able to relate to them.

You do not need a character to have the same skin color as you to be able to enjoy them.

And believe me, I know. I’m not black and yet there are some black characters whom I really relate to and enjoy.

Case in point? Iris West from CW’s The Flash. For the first season I was kinda neutral towards her, but when she landed a journalistic job and became more aware of Barry’s feelings towards her I really started to grow attached. I’m a journalistic writer like Iris, I’ve got two siblings like Iris, I’m here for emotional support like Iris, if my brother/boyfriend was a superhero I’d probably run around getting myself into trouble like Iris, too. #IrisWestIsTheNextLoisLane

My point is that you don’t have to have the same skin color as someone to be able to relate to them!

My point is that skin color doesn’t matter because we’re all humans. People of every ethnicity go through the same struggles, such as:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Love
  • Heartache
  • Loss
  • Abuse
  • Rape
  • Poverty
  • Loneliness
  • Responsibility
  • Guilt
  • Emptiness
  • Hopelessness
  • Envy
  • Vanity & Pride
  • Anger
  • Yeah basically all the 7 deadly sins

I could go on but I think y’all get the point.

I just can’t see any reason for why we need to have exactly 25% black characters and 25% Asian characters and 25% Muslim characters and–

like, for the love of Dormammu I don’t care, just give me a compelling character who’s going through a relatable struggle

I can understand why it would matter if you’re trying to make a film that focuses specifically on racism, or the Holocaust, or oppression as a key theme. Then I can understand why casting and skin color matters.

But the vast majority of entertainment are about superheroes and ninja turtles and starship captains and elves and teenage drama and adult drama. Most of these shows and movies take place in privileged America where your biggest dilemma is the fact that they took Doctor Who off of Netflix, not the fact that you fear getting shot in the streets because of your skin color.

To clarify: I’m not against having a diverse cast. I’m not saying that we should just turn a blind eye to racism. I’m not saying hate crimes don’t happen in America.

What I’m saying is that if you really want to make a change, focus less on entertainment (which you are so very privileged to receive in the first place) and more on the REAL issues in the world, like the fact that people are dying for being LGBT, women are being raped. Stop complaining about how some dumb TV show didn’t cast enough black people and try doing something substantial for once. Go out and join a club that actually raises funds to help people or something.

I feel like we’re getting worked up over all the wrong things.

Sorry if I triggered anyone out there.

As some of you might have noticed, I got super sick during the holidays and could hardly get any work done. But now it´s a new year and I am getting work done on all fronts. >:D

PS: I will update with post with more behind-the-scene later. ;)

JANUARY UPDATE: Believe it or not, but I have been sick (different flues as well as a stomach virus) for over a month now and it has really taken a toll on my editing time. :,(

FEBRUARY UPDATE: 11/14 scenes are completed and rendered, and the last 3 are soon done too. I totally underestimated how time consuming it would be to use Pocahontas since she needs a new dress/hair in 80% of her appearances. D,X

Sick Healer AU!

Crossember Challenge Day 3 - UNDERSWAP

As many of us already know (and it has already been confirmed) the next AU we will see in Underverse is Underswap. What do you expect to happen in 0.3?

I know I’m a few days late, but I couldn’t get this idea out of my head and I had to make this. My guess is that Cross’ll use Papyrus against Sans. And since Underswap Paps uses orange magic (I think that’s canon?) and you have to keep moving to avoid damage, I just fell in love with the though of poor Sans having to run for his life…waiting for a chance to attack ;)

Challenge by @byutak, Underverse and Cross by @jakei95, Underswap by @popcornpr1nce

Here’s a still so you can see Cross and Paps in the back:

mandatory attendence can be ableist

mostly because of how mandatory attendence is usually set and done is made to help healthy people who take one or two sick days, not sick people who take multiple days to handle or cope with their sickness.

the “you can only be absent three times this semester or ill start dropping your grade” or “this quarter, you cant be absent more than 4-7 times or else you might fail” is very limiting to disabled students who need multiple days just to recover from going to school for one day, or are very sick and need to miss more than three days to even begin to get their illness under control.

another big thing ive heard from highschools, colleges and so on is that “if i let you skip, i need to let everyone skip”, this is stupid, because not everyone is disabled, abled people dont need to take multiple medical days, abled people dont have an illness that is making attendence harder for them, teachers, principals, etc who say this dont understand that disabled people exist and one of their limitations can be the ability to be in class for long periods of time/at all. you dont have to do it for everyone, because not everyone is disabled. and it infuriates me because why do they care about fairness when theyre openly saying that they wont make an accomodation to help a disabled student have an equal opportunity that abled people get with no problem and no fight.

and thats where the biggest issue in mandatory attendence lies, with the simple fact that its obvious teachers didnt think to add disabled people and what they might go through when thinking of rules, whether its because they didnt care enough about disabled students, or they just simply forgot, i dont know, but ableism is ableism.

and a disabled student having to hope a teacher understands their situation, because it isnt mandatory that you not punish the disabled person for being sick, is ableist as well, because getting a teacher who doesnt understand that someone cant help being sick or absent, can set a disabled person up to fail where it wouldnt set an abled person up to fail.

is this done on purpose? is it by accident? i dont know, i dont care, because ableism is ableism.

and id hate for any disabled person going into school feeling like being sick is their fault and choosing being present over being okay.

No antibiotics for you.

Things I have been asked to “just call me in some antibiotics, Doc” for in the last month:

  • seasonal allergies
  • acid reflux
  • nausea
  • about a thousand viral runny noses and sore throats
  • swollen uvula
  • allergic rash
  • the flu

Arguments people have made to get antibiotics:

  • I promise I will come in to be checked out if the antibiotics don’t work.
  • It would make me feel better.
  • I might get sick over the weekend and I need them just in case.
  • Last year I had this for weeks and could never get over it (it was a virus last year too!).
  • Zpaks are the only thing that ever work for me.
  • Dr. S would have given it to me.

My answer to all these patients: 

The Local.

“Look, I get it, kid, I really do. You’re new to this right? So all you know is what you saw on the TV or the Youtubes or whatever. The old school supercrims, the ones who’d shoot one of their own guys for screwin’ up.  I mean, I get it. A lot of those guys had style

You know what style and murdering on a whim gets you? No fucking gang when you need one, that’s what.  Hell, it means your own gang might drop a dime to one of the heroes, because they can’t trust you not to kill them and walk off with the score.

And that’s why Henchin’ got organized. Collective bargaining. Power of the people, right? We get a proper contract. Sick leave, vacation days arranged for when one of the supercrooks is going to do something city-wide…and Death Benefits. No more shootin’ a guy and telling his wife and kids that they don’t get his cut. A hench dies on a job, you still pay her family. That’s the rules.

I see you’re tryin’ to say something around the busted jaw. Let me tell ya, I’ve heard all of it before. See, I’m from the Local. Me and mine, we come around when one of you fellas breaks the rules. We collect the dues.

Her name was Anna-Maria, by the way, the hench you shot. She’s got a wife, they adopted a baby girl last May. Now, I offered to make an example, but Sally, Anna Maria’s wife? She just wants what she’s owed. Like in the contract. So you’re going to point to where you stashed the loot- I didn’t bust all your fingers so you can, and then you’re going to make me a promise.

You’re going to read your Henching contract, and you’re not going to try and pull this shit again, got it? 

Eh! There we go. Now was that so hard? 

And by the way, if you go after Sally or their daughter out of some dumb misguided attempt at revenge? I’ll be back. Hell, maybe the next crew you hire will be all contract enforcement like me, and when that happens, well…you won’t like it when that happens, so don’t let it, got it?

Henching local #1253 protects its own, you know?

Actual things I have heard ‘20-something’ people in my life say:
  • “My chest hurts a lot. It’s probably nothing. Not like I could afford to go see a doctor anyway…”
  • “My teeth are like literally rotting out of my head. I wish I could see a dentist. It’s just too much money, you know?”
  • “I wish I could afford new glasses. Everything’s so blurry and it sucks.”
  • “I been sick for days. I think I might go to Urgent Care, but I don’t know. It’s expensive..”
  • “I feel awful. I wish I could go home. Too bad I need these hours.”
  • “I can’t afford to be sick.”
  • “I’ve been off my meds for months. I just can’t afford them right now.”
  • “I just glued my glasses back together. I can’t afford a new pair.” 
  • “I really hope I get promoted. Then I can get health insurance through the company, I haven’t seen a doctor in years.” 

How much longer does this have to go on before the government realises that its young people are practically DYING because we can’t afford medical care. When is enough going to be enough?

★ Karamel Appreciation Week ★

Day 6 favorite angsty moment

HOW I FOUND OUT

At the beginning of this year, my best friend and I drove down the Great Ocean Road. We went around a curve in the road and I drew in my breath because the forests were laid out before me in a startling contrast of gold lace against shadow. The next moment I realised, with another quieter shock, that the shining woods were burned land and the bright leaves were ashes.

It was my first time in Australia, and I loved it so much that I planned to go back this winter. But for a while before that, I was enjoying being in Ireland with Loved Ones, etc.

MUM: So you’re getting ready for Australia.
SARAH: Yep, I bought ankle boots!
MUM: Cool priorities. You might want to see the doctor before you go, just for a check-up about being so worn down and that cough.

I went in for a quick check-up. I wasn’t all that concerned. Writers are just sick a lot: we have an awesome job, but we also have a weird job where you often overwork and keep odd hours and do not take care of yourself. A guy I know worked so hard he got shingles and lost his hair. One of my close writer friends got pneumonia and broke her rib coughing. I got pneumonia from overwork four years ago, and since then have had recurring bouts of bronchitis or pneumonia, depending on my luck! So I went to the doctor and was like ‘Check me out, not to brag but I haven’t had bronchitis since February and it is September, but if you could do something about the persistent cough that would be great.’

Away I went. A few days later it was my birthday, and my phone rang. I was asleep, due to being a lazy toad who regularly wakes up at I’m-too-ashamed-to-tell-you o’clock. I flailed about in my bedsheets and seized the phone, assuming muzzily it was a Loved One with birthday wishes.

SARAH: Hey, sweetie!
DOCTOR: Er, hello… this is your G.P…
SARAH: Hey, er… doctor sweetie… I just feel very close to you since the thermometer incident… No. Uh, why are you calling?
DOCTOR: So your haemoglobin is half the haemoglobin of a normal person’s.
SARAH: Huh.
DOCTOR: I would never have thought you were as sick as you are when I saw you!
SARAH: I cannot say you have a soothing bedphoneside manner, doctor.
DOCTOR: Go to the hospital. Soon.
SARAH: Okay, I promise I will. Soon!

(Cut for super length and pictures, but I hope you read on!)
