my favorite thing in stories is when the antagonist doesn’t die, but instead they realize they were being kind of a stupid dick (maybe because the protagonist saved them or something) and then they have to kind of awkwardly tag along with the heroes in order to make up for their mistakes and gradually become slightly less evil
I want to write and take classes and sports classes and I need to learn to drive and I want to go to Mexico at Christmas and spend time with my friends and make new ones and read everything and run really hard and eat a lot of food from my garden etcetc and that is sometimes depressing or stressful to me because THERE ISN’T ENOUGH TIME but now it strikes me as really cool because there’s so much to do and we are alive.

i’m the troll under this bridge & you have to sit around and listen to tmg with me before you can pass
I can’t even explain how stupidly important this post is to me but god, is it ever
Is that the phrase or is it a common weird linguistic thing that people do? Because my dad would always say “I couldn’t care less” and as a kid it eventually started to confuse me when I realized it didn’t make logical sense but that is what he said is this a common thing and I wonder whyyy ?
honestly I could care less if the mona lisa got destroyed or stolen. just honestly do not care about it at all. not a big deal in my life right now
The phrase is actually “I couldn’t care less”
I couldnt care less about what you just added to my mona lisa post
grangrdangr said: what do you say to yourself in times when you don't feel that confident about yourself? I am having one of those phase, and can't seem to take a step back...
Sorry, grangrdangr. I am also in one of those phases and desperately trying to tell it to fuck off.
So firstly, I try to identify what exactly it is I feel rubbish about. It tends to be more specific than just, I don’t feel confident today. This isn’t fun but it helps me move away from the I DON’T FEEL CONFIDENT BECAUSE I AM HORRIBLE EVERYTHING IS AWFUL pov towards SOME THINGS ARE AWFUL. e.g.: I feel incompetent, I feel ugly, I feel lonely, I feel like people hate me/I’ve upset them/I’ve disappointed them.
Secondly, (if possible) identify how those things are operating. I tend to get stuck in cycles of these sorts of thoughts, but there are times when it’s just one nagging thing in the background, or if I do a particular task/action/inaction then I get sucked into it. Sometimes I just have to let it run its course. (I’m sure there’s a better way and this presupposes the awareness that it’s a temporary thing, but yeah.)
Thirdly, I follow these little routines:
1. I moisturise and hydrate. Honestly, I don’t know what it is about moisturising and hydrating but they make me feel so much more at peace. Also, putting on freshly laundered clothes, sleeping in fresh sheets, etc. These actions pull me out of the lethargic aspect of feeling shit.
2. I go for a walk or a run. It doesn’t have to be a long one, 15 minutes will do. On rainy days like today it’s not always possible, or if you feel particularly shit at 2am it’s not always possible, but fresh air helps.
3. I tell myself (and here you have the right to laugh at me if you wish) that smart people who love me are going to have my back. Yes, that’s a line from TWW but it has been enormously helpful in my development. It means you don’t have to pinpoint exactly who loves you but it’s a general assertion of some kind of confidence in how things will turn out, not because of your personal capability but because of who you are. Even if you don’t believe it at first, you get there, and suddenly this weird little TV mantra has all sorts of power.
4. I do my very very best to be kind to myself. It’s okay to not feel confident but it’s not necessarily a permanent thing. Give yourself time to get back to that place. Recognise your progress. Be kind to yourself.
WHOA apparently I didn’t know how to check tumblr messages because various people’ve answered my tumblr messages over the last few months. day made
you wouldn’t think that whether a farm participating in a wic/snap-approved farmer’s market needs to renew their certification every year or few years is top-secret info but apparently so
I definitely just washed my feet in the sink with dr. bronners so I wouldn’t feel too gross to get in bed cool good night
“And I stood before the mirror then
Like I was waiting for a phone call
Squinting like a lost traveler in a thick fog
But nothing clear came into view
Except for you
Just off in the distant horizon
Something hidden in your hand
I’m gonna break. Something.”
