I just bought Monsters University on amazon instant. Best decisions.
I have zero fucks to give about anyone right now. I messed up teaching dance tonight and felt like shit and then had to dj all night still feeling like shit and I am 500% done with all people as of 5 days ago and yet keep being near people because stupid work and stuff. Bleh.
Things that matter are not easy. Feelings of happiness are easy. Happiness is not. Flirting is easy. Love is not. Saying you’re friends is easy. Being friends is not.
Anonymous asked: As someone who is a Gaelic Polytheistic, I am appalled I am following someone who thinks the "God Graveyard" is anything but racist or ignorant. Not to mention that some of those gods listed are from the Hindu faith, which is alive and well in India. It's racist because the monotheistic gods of the Abrahamic faiths aren't going to go away, but the Native American faiths and other marginalized faiths could. Because of stunts like this. I hope you're ashamed.
As someone who is atheist, I totally support your choice in religion and how you choose to personally express it and your appreciation of it. Religion is something intensely personal, and can play a big part in someone’s life, which I find totally awesome.
But make no mistake, this is my personal blog. And while I don’t actively mean to offend people, I also don’t cater to the world at large. I put things here that I find interesting, for whatever reason: in this post’s case, it provided me with a story idea that I wanted to be able to find again, so I tagged it accordingly.
So, no, I’m not ashamed that I reblogged something that I found thought provoking. And you’re welcome and encouraged to unfollow me as you see fit. I have and I will continue to blog based on my personal preferences, because this is a personal tumblr. I cater my speech and interactions to those I am speaking to: I would not go on a long-winded tirade of why I’m an atheist while in my group of very religious friends, because I know they would not appreciate it. But this is my corner of the internet, and bottom line is, if you don’t like it, you don’t have to look.
I honestly do appreciate you trying to tell me why you found something I did offensive, and I can definitely see how the post can be considered ignorant (I did not notice any Hindu gods when I first saw it, only Norse and Greek, which I personally classify as myths and not widespread active faiths, which is, I think, the point of the post). I very much do not appreciate that you tried to shame me for not considering the feelings of everyone ever while on my personal blog, as if I owe people something because they choose to follow me. Having any blog on your dash is your own personal choice, and I unfollow people all the time because they stop being relevant to my interests or because they constantly post things I actively disagree with, even if the other 80% of their posts are cool. I suggest you do the same.
Every so often I engage in a discussion on social media that turns into more of an argument and I am reminded why I usually just keep to myself.
What I need,” shouted Ford, by way of clarifying his previous remarks, “is a strong drink and a peer group.
I’m sketching for the first time with my new tablet that is literally three times the size of my old one in photoshop, and I keep thinking “wow, that stroke took SO MUCH SPACE, how to people with big tablets, like, move their entire arm and not just their wrist this is tiring”. And then laughing at myself.
My old tablet was 3.5” by 5”. This thing is giant. And pretty. And has better pressure sensitivity. My old tablet was also 9 years old. This one is shiny, and I love it, even if it is going to take a while to get used to. :)
Anonymous asked: How'd you get so fine both inside and out? Is it true that human suffering is the precursor to internal beauty? Is acknowledging confidence in fact the thing that dispels it? When you actively try to do and say the right things, do you get the slight feeling that sometimes it's not enough? Oh, and "what's ur favorite color"? Also does it kinda skeeve you out to ask questions anonymously like it does me?
So many questions! Ahem. In order:
1. A sensible diet of virgin tears and baby laughter. Clears those troublesome pimples right up, and gives you rose colored glasses for up to 12 hours!
2. I very much deny the notion that only broken things/people are beautiful. I know that’s usually how media/literature/fiction likes to portray people, as “normal” and then shit happens and then now they’re a glimmering saint of good intentions, but fuck that. You don’t have to suffer to know suffering is wrong, and you don’t have to go through crap to recognize and help people in need - it’s called empathy.
3. Acknowledging confidence is actually the thing that strengthens it (for yourself) and conveniently weeds out people who you don’t need to be associating with. Hint: they’re the ones who will pitch a fit that you no longer need their approval to know you’re awesome. Realizing confidence in people is super awesome (if you’re a super awesome person). Sometimes ti helps them see it in themselves, too. :)
4. I have, and continue to, constantly struggle with things I should have done, should have said, could have done, for conversations going as far back as 10 years. The most I can hope for is doing and saying what I think is right in the moment, and I have to fight to let myself let the other things go. But I can 100% guarantee, every time I have walked away from a situation where I actually did and said what was the right thing in my mind, I have not come back to it and dwelled on it. So I guess the answer is, yes, I worry if I could be doing more, but in those rare cases when I get to do as much as I thought I could, that’s enough for me.
6. It depends. If I’m asking super personal questions, I try not to do it on anon because I like letting the person answer in private if they so choose. If it’s someone I don’t really know and all I’m doing is going “SNSIAFHSUF I LOVE YOUR BLOG”, I’ll leave it on anon more often than not. So apparently, rule of thumb, if I have something nice and impersonal to say, anon is totally fine. Usually, though, I like to let people know who’s asking. :)
elementary, sleepy hollow, almost human
you got your police procedural show, your magical/demonic show, and your future-tech show
all involving staggeringly wonderful levels of racial and sexual diversity
it’s like the anti-superwholock trifecta
Two down, I guess I should start on Almost Human soon…
I have to say, I am really enjoying Watson’s calling out of misogyny and Abbie’s infinite patience of “Yeah, Ichabod, we haven’t had institutionalized slavery for 150 years now! They even let us black women become law officers. Fancy that!” Also all of the cast being so diverse on both of those shows <3
Everything I’ve seen of Almost Human points to me liking that one as well.
