I can’t decide if Steve’s characterization in the Avengers was really shitty or if it was a reflection of Steven being awake for like a week, adjusting poorly in that short time, AND THEN DEALING WITH AN ARMY OF ALIENS FROM SPACE seven days after waking up seventy years in the fucking future. 

Ja Feel?

Work as hard as you can. If you aren’t working as hard as you can, someone else is out there working as hard as they can. Those people who are working harder than you deserve opportunities more than you do, so stop making excuses for why you aren’t working hard and just work hard. When you feel like you’re working as hard as you can possibly work, work a little harder and you are probably getting close to how hard you actually have to work. Do more shows. Take more classes. Watch more shows. Meet more people. Challenge yourself. Don’t expect anyone to hand anything to you. If you aren’t exhausted all the time, you probably aren’t working hard enough.

When I started making those weird voices, a lot of people told me how whack it was,” she says, “‘What the fuck are you doing?’ they’d say. ‘Why do you sound like that? That doesn’t sound sexy to me.’ And then I started saying, Oh, that’s not sexy to you? Good. I’m going to do it more. Maybe I don’t want to be sexy for you today.

I get no end of joy out of making weird faces while wearing bright lip stick. It makes my male coworkers so damn uncomfortable.

Hey tumblr, it’s Sunday night and tomorrow is the first day of the semester. Who wants to tell me fun things?

Years, and years, and years ago my grandmother was a yard lady at an elementary school. There was one other yard lady at the school, and she had a reputation for two things: being so goddamn mean and making the most delicious banana cake on the planet. My grandmother was never able to get her to give up her recipe. She was not actually invited to this woman’s wake but went anyways when she died. Where she riffled through the recently-dead-woman’s kitchen, found what was presumably the only copy of her recipe, and promptly stole it.

This is the story of how my mother came to make Dead Lady Cake for my sister and I whenever we needed a little cheering up. 

Filed under I always thought it was called dead lady cake because the bananas looked all dead nope gramma ardy was a badass scary frankly enethical old lady gosh i miss her story time with corn in the corner

You know how the key to success/happiness is small manageable goals? Well,  I decided to make of list of purchases I need to make in the near future and put their costs next to them. I am not comforted. I am terrified. Most of these things really can’t wait. And it’s times like this where I’m like… this is why I don’t have glasses.

I don’t think I know anyone with this background, but maybe we can signal boost. One major thing the Ferguson organizers have been asking for specifically for several days is for service donations from mental health professionals with a background in trauma counseling, people of color would be preferable for obvious reasons. If you know someone who might be willing to either to go to Ferguson or do tele-sessions, please direct them to this form.

I’ve heard people on Twitter talking about the triggers they’ve already started to experience. Trauma doesn’t end with the event.

I am a free bird with no plans for the day. This means I could lay on the sofa all day and read fan fiction or finally venture down to the Downtown Library. I have never been to the main branch and understand it is quite amazing. I could get some serious research done. But I also would have to put real clothes on.
