My room mate’s bleeding bc she accidentally punched herself in the face during self defense class
hey everyone. so now that my birthday is over and i’m no longer living in a suspended reality where i have no responsibilities and problems, i’m asking y’all for help
i dropped out of beauty school because the demanding schedule (42 hours a week) interfered with the fact that i was moving about 70 miles north at the same time. i had no energy and was emotionally exhausted—it is sadly really common to walk into the bathroom at beauty school and see multiple girls crying or trying to calm themselves down, and i was usually one of them. i’m so proud of myself for making it as far as i did, but it wasn’t realistic or healthy for me to have so much on my plate at once.
not only was i moving with my mom, but we were also moving my grandparents to a separate property. i was at three different locations all the time, with at least a half an hour commute (usually more) between them, my grandmother was emotionally abusive to us the entire time, she took my dog with her (which is another layer of emotional pain) and she refused to thank us for everything we did for her.
fast forward to now, where i am more or less settled in a place. i have a mattress on the floor of my mom’s boyfriend’s office in his apartment. 95% of my belongings are still in boxes at multiple properties. it’s bearable, but i don’t feel like i have a home right now.
i don’t want to get into the full details of why, but my school recently told me that i owe them $744. financial aid didn’t cover this for whatever reason, and now i have to pay out of pocket. no one in my family has enough money to pay this, and even if they offered, i’ve already gotten so much financial help from my family that i feel guilty asking for food money.
as far as income goes, i’m unemployed. i am applying to multiple jobs in the area, hoping that someone will hire me at least part time, so i can be more independent and cover my personal and academic expenses.
in the meantime, if anyone is able to spare a few dollars here and there, i would be eternally grateful. i hate having to ask but i’m running out of options.
i also can do business with you:
thanks guys. my paypal is email@example.com and there is also a donate button on my sidebar. anything helps, even a reblog. thank you so much
My mother, a 45 year old Korean lady, is yelling at the tv because Venus Williams won her set in the US Open.
Only good things can come of this.
"Would you care for a date?"
"You mean…. another data point?"
"No, I… was thinking about dinner."
"Joan, will you….
"…be my co-author?"
"Oh, Meredith! Et al!"
One of the biggest stories in comics and pop culture over the summer was from Marvel Comics showing their efforts in creating diverse characters. Much to a lot of fans dismay,they made Thor a woman and Captain America a black man. Sam Wilson aka The Falcon is now officially Captain America. While working today through my anger at the Ferguson, MO story which is still unfolding…I wondered what Sam would do if he were a real person. So, I did this image to deal with the madness.
i’m so in love with “in the flesh”, everyone go watch it!! i especially love that simon is a sweetie, i’m sure he wants to cuddle kieren all the time (i know i do)
this tender heart is too strong to surrender
I beg to, politely and with all my love, disagree.
That is not a waste.
The ITF fandom, like the fannibals, is an extraordinary light one. I feel it’s to counteract the “heaviness” of the topics explored by the show and it’s O.K.
The reason people are fans of the show and support it so much is not “just because of a canon queer relationship”.
And even if it was, the canonical of the relationship is a major thing to happen on publicly-financed TV.
Representation matters and save lives.
What if we want to put flower crowns on zombie boyfriends and talk about jumpers? We can’t talk about suicide, depression, addiction, racism, homophobia all the time. And even if we did, it wouldn’t prevent some Philip x Toaster in the middle.
The show offers queer representation and mental illnesses representation
and Morrissey representationand that is some of the reasons (I won’t list them all: others, more talented than I am, already did several times) why the show is important, vital in its portrayal, and needs a third series (at least).
Fans fluffing (or smuting) about a canon queer relationship that is not portrayed as “a big deal” in the show but, realistically, in our society, is a fucking big huge immense deal exactly because of its “he likes whom he likes and it’s not a main device plot or a way to define his character” are not a problem and they are not undermining other issues talked about and represented in the show.
How could anyone undermine such crucial topics? I really don’t think there is such a power on Earth, except in erasure. The fans could not, with all their fanart, erase something that is already there and strong and important in ITF.
All is love, friends, the jumpers as well as the journey to self-acceptance.
I think this moment in the scene is overlooked because it’s rather subtle.
When they walk up to the GP Surgery, Simon is well behind Kieren, letting him lead their way (as will become typical).
Upon entering, Simon is looking at Kieren (first pic) for cues.
When Dr. Russo calls Kieren’s name, Simon’s attention switches to Dr. Russo and his expression hardens (second pic). Whatever Kieren thinks of this situation, Simon distrusts medical personnel (and with good reason, considering his horrific experiences with them, ESPECIALLY the ones involved with the care of PDS patients).
Simon’s reaction to Dr. Russo approaching Kieren is to move from behind Kieren to in front of Kieren, and stop moving (third pic, though it’s easier to see when they are in motion).
He doesn’t place his body between Kieren and Russo, he’s not blocking anyone from interacting or stopping Kieren from doing anything he wants to do… but he HAS placed himself in such a manner that Russo has to keep his distance from Kieren or else be weirdly in Simon’s personal space. Simon has also placed himself into a position to defend Kieren in an instant if needed, and his gaze is placed off to the side of Russo in such a way that suggests Russo doesn’t need to worry about him because he isn’t even paying attention to Russo. In fact, the rest of his body language suggests his mind’s attention is 100% on Russo.
I love, lovelovelove, this facet of Simon. He trusts Kieren to take care of himself, doesn’t restrict him from doing anything he wants to do, but Simon places himself in a position to step in if he’s needed.
