You’ve been wonderful to us in our time of pain and since you have the finale tomorrow we want to return the favor.
Here’s some tea(I figured you’d need the strong stuff so I left the bag in)
Some Jammy dodgers
And last but not least a hug
The Supernatural Fandom
This is the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen.
if any of you ever saw me in real life you’d just be like “oh”
You mean the generation that paid three times as much for college to enter a job market with triple the unemployment isn’t interested in purchasing the assets of the generation who just blew an enormous housing bubble and kept it from popping through quantitative easing and out-and-out federal support? Curious. — When comments are better than the article, Atlantic edition (“The Cheapest Generation: Why Millennials arent’ buying cars or houses, and what that means for the economy”)

you can totally tell when someone has a tumblr just by looking at them or hearing the way they talk
it’s like a different race or something
But there’s people who have a tumblr and then there’s people who have a tumblr.
So I was doing some LOtR research because of course and a lot of people put Legolas’ last name down as Greenleaf. I got curious, and so i looked it up, and the word “Legolas” literally means Greenleaf.
Legolas is “Greenleaf Greenleaf.”
Legolas is Moon Moon
I once retold that joke: “On a scale of Jack Harkness to John Watson, how out of the closet are you?” while visiting my family.
My brother didn’t even glance up from what he was doing, and answered with “Arthur Pendragon.”
I guess I am the Pink Ranger.
The thing is…
even if my OTP never becomes canon, I will still ship it.
even if you write out a dissertation explaining why my OTP will never become canon, I will still ship it.
even if the creator issued a statement tomorrow that said my OTP will never become canon, I will still ship it.
even if no one else in the universe ships my OTP, I will still ship it.
You wanna know why? Because I fucking love my OTP. And nothing will change that.
do you ever get the urge to get up in the middle of the night while everyone else is fast asleep and just walk places and to be completely alone and entirely dedicated to your thoughts
yes but the problem is i dont want to get murdered u feel me
i feel you
we all feel you
why are so many people touching me
This is why you don’t walk around in the middle of the night
missenthusiasimal asked: Hi! I'm attempting to write a short story/novella from the point of view of a transwoman and the discrimination they face. I was wondering if you would feel comfortable telling me anything about living as a transgirl so I can get this right? And, if it's not intruding too much, any personal experience you've had with transphobia and discrimination? Feel free to say no =)
Oh Geez where do I begin! First off I would like to thank you for coming to me out of all the transwomen that you could have interviewed for your Writing Project on tumblr alone. And I would love to to help you on this project, thank you for choosing me!
Well I would like to stress that I live like any other person. I work, I go to school, I search for that great cup of coffee to share with a person, I hope that I can get a job I really like, and so many other things. Being Trans for some women can be a large portion of our identity and human experience but for me personally its only a fraction of me amongst dozens, dozens and dozens of fractions that make up the person that is me Jaelin Allison Corona.
I think about all the same things that other people think about. I think about how I can live my life to the fullest. What will make me happy in an overarching sense. Yes my transition is super important to especially in regards to how people see me. And yes I really do want surgery, I want to feel okay in my body. But I had to learn that its how I perceive myself is what matters, physical modification does not define me, I do. As a transwoman, Its mandatory for me to see a person who then verifies what I already know in my heart of hearts, I am a woman. I just have to go about getting there in a different manner. Its not the wrong way its just different from other woman and thats okay. I have to see a therapist because they help sort out the jumbled up feelings of confusion, anxiety, self images, and the over all experience of my life.
They help me sort it out and what I need to work on. Most importantly, they help me understand how crucial it is that I know I am okay and that I am a worthwhile person who is important and deserves a chance to be happy. And that my happiness shouldn’t depend on a little patch, a pill, or going under the knife. Yes it does help but I am the one who gets to decide when I am happy, when I am feeling down or whatever. Its my life and I shouldn’t let the negative feelings that come with dysphoria or GID overwhelm me. They help take back control from all the things that way heavily on me. They give me the skills and the courage to go back into the world and say, “Hey I belong here just as much as all of you guys.”
And that is so integral to a trans person’s existence (well at least in my experience) because I do face a lot of discrimination. I do get the looks from adults sometimes its confusion, dislike, anger, or discomfort. It comes around a lot. But then I get the wow you’re really brave, thats really hard good luck, or I accept you and appreciate you for being you. And that is what I look forward to. I look forward to the times where I get to make meaningful relationships with people that matter.
I am super lucky to have friends and family that support and love me for me. They don’t tear me down augment my life in positive ways. Be they inviting me to the girls night. Or going shopping. Give me words of encouragement or whatever I might need. They are there for me.
I hold out through all of the nastiness just so I can find the few who care. Because its so important to have a support group be they friends, family, or a professor that you really admire. A support group is so crucial to my existence and I am sure its important to many transpeople’s existence. Especially when you hear the hey you dont belong in this bathroom, I’m sorry but we can’t offer you employment with us because we have to think about the comfort of customers, I don’t think I could date you much less wrap my head around you as a person, or I hate you I don’t want to speak to you again how could you do this to yourself.
After awhile that takes a toll on you. And that’s just the verbal abuse. I have experienced very little physical abuse (thank God) but from that little bit I have learned to be cautious and be smart. I learned not to let that poison my life. Its so important to stand strong because at the end of the day that is all you have. You, your strength, your determination. Just you. Only you can get back up and say, “No this won’t define me, this won’t control me, and I will be damned if I let this end me.”
And at the end of the day you just have look in the mirror and say, “I did it. I am worthwhile, I can succeed, I can be happy, I am beautiful, and I am me. And that’s the best thing I can be. No one can take that away from me.”
Well I hope this helped? I mean feel free to ask more questions if you like. Also keep me posted I would love to read the finished product!!!
‘Cause people seem to only post the 20-something Audrey Hepburn
