The sun shone from
behind frozen skies
speaking as old photographs
which serve to trigger
memories we said were
Living a plain jane lifestyle.
Years spent staring
up at her sister and thinking
she was a peasant staring
at a princess.
She tried to hide...
Lucid dreams kept me awake
all night, making allegations
testing my trust in myself
to keep my own secrets.
Reminding me of...
Stressful, but I finished up all my midterms. I am five types of exhausted right now.
I’m taking the rest of the night off, I’ve earned that much.
Tomorrow I’m going to post up the revision/story project of mine that I’ve been working on for the past few weeks. Several people tell me it’s pretty great, and I think a lot of you will like it.
Also, a weird little moment: someone called me fat today. Like, not in anger, not in jest, just said I was fat in a very matter of fact tone. First time I’ve been called it, it was shocking more than anything, but now it’s got me feeling all insecure…
I had stress dreams/nightmares all night. I’m exhausted and this is my busiest and most stressful day, full of exams and a job training less than an hour after that.
I just have to get through today, but man, I’m not sure if I can.
An idea of mine that I want to include in a story sometime is someone meeting Aphrodite, but she’s not one form. She’s constantly changing shape into women of various races, body types, sizes, ect. . When asked about it she says, “I am not a standard of beauty, but a conduit of it.”
Idk, I think that’s a good idea, and I’m waiting for an appropriate vehicle to use it in.
Persephone as a dark and off-putting goddess who worries her mother by hanging out with satyrs and making weird stuff like pitcher plants and Venus flytraps. Hades being charmed and intimidated all at once.
Where Hades is relatively shy and quiet, a solitary introvert of a god.
And instead of being “abducted” the two of them just decided to elope.
My gods I need to write this.
After some thought, I figured out if after all my classes and other stuff, I pull an all nighter and work and study all tomorrow, I’ll be able to get my work done and/or have a nervous breakdown.
I just got a call, and I got hired to the job I was applying for! Woohoo!
It may mean less Tumblr time, but I’ll actually be productive and earning much needed money, which is good, because I’m planning on saving up and getting an apartment in the city and starting my life. If all goes well, I would be a happier, more well rounded individual.
So I’ve promised to be all kinds of productive today. I’m going to write several pieces, work out, get some of my classwork and readings done, and several other things.
Or at least, I’m going to try. I feel a bit icky today, so we’ll see how I hold up But I am going to be trying, and all my writings that I do will be queued up so they’ll appear over the course of the week.
There needs to be a bar or club or something that when you walk in there’s a rack of different color wristbands with words like “I’m looking for-“
- no one
So that everyone would know who’s looking for who.
"Hey that girl is cute. And her wristband says she’s also looking for a girl. Sweet!”
"He’s cute, but his wristband says girls. Oh well."
you are the future
I love this idea, but I think take it a step further. Wristbands can be hard to see. I say instead of wristbands, silly hats. Like viking hats means looking for boys, pirate hats means looking for friends, ect.
I think most people would like it, silly hats would be a nice ice breaker and tension reducer. Plus, think of the terrible puns and pick up lines that would abound from this.
I just laughed for 30 minutes because I just realize like
The whole “fake geek girls” thing would mean
there are guys who genuinely think a girl would spend 100s of euros on games she doesn’t even fucking play, or get like a Marvel tattoo when they don’t even know what Marvel is just to impress them
I just - this arrogance is beyond me hahahahahha you need a reality check son
While I hate the stereotype of the “fake geek girl” I have to point out that there are a handful of them that exist. I mean, law of averages, you’re bound to have one or two pop up with such a wide world population.
Anyway, I bring this up because unfortunately, my step sister kind of is the stereotype of the fake geek girl. She’s gotten several Marvel tattoos despite having zero knowledge of the universe (for instance, doesn’t know who Loki is), spends money on games and never plays them, and goes around saying “OMG, I am such a nerrrddddd, lol.”
It would be one thing if she did these things because she loved doing them and loves being a part of the community, but honestly doesn’t like it at all. She does it for appearances on instagram and other things like that and quickly stops whenever she’s done with the photos, she really is doing it for attention and to be trendy.
But my step sister and probably like, five other people on the planet are actually like that (and she’s a massive idiot in more than one aspect) the rest that people try to apply the stereotype to are being unfairly treated.
Have you ever lost something and thought, “if I could just open a portal to another reality where I haven’t lost it, I could steal it from me and get it back”?
How do you know that’s not the reason you lost it
This is the exact plot of Fringe
And also pretty much SPOILER ALERT: Bioshock Infinite.
