The primary teaching of every religion? Don’t be an asshole.
Don’t be a dick. Your god (and society) commands it.
I wish that there was a socially acceptable way to say, “I’m having a bad mental health day and need you to pay attention to me,” without alienating everyone.
or: “I’m having a bad mental health day and need to be on my own for a while so please don’t be mad if I cancel our plans on short notice.”
When someone becomes a close friend or intimate partner, I tell them point-blank that sometimes I get cranky, overly enthusiastic, suicidal, super-affectionate, or need to be alone for no external reason, and that’s just bipolar. I apologize in advance for anything I do or say and state that if it’s rude or cruel I don’t mean it, but that I’m willing to accept the consequences for my behavior no matter what.
Sometimes being straightforward really is the best thing.

I plan to write chapter two of “Desolation” tonight. I was psyched to do it yesterday, actually, but it didn’t work out. :3 I’m hoping with my renewed vigor for both the pairings and the setting, I can stick with this project till the end.
YAY OLD BITCHES TALKING GREATS AMOUNTS OF SHIT!
Yeah, it’s a trend. If I’m like that at her age, I hope someone takes me out back and shoots me.
So the internet just gave my tumblr name a whole new (literal) meaning. I was alerted to a photo of me gathering massive attention via a friend who linked me to a Reddit post titled “Don’t worry guys, I’m taking hipster to the next level.”
Apparently some guy on the train uploaded this photo to twitter it has been spreading like wildfire since. Surprisingly when I read the thread on Reddit a lot of it was positive/supportive. I’m surprised by how unfazed and genuinely funny I find the negative comments. People’s theories as to why I am dressed like this, and who I really am are also really interesting.
I’m dressed like this for a number reasons. Firstly, and fore-mostly, I genuinely like the clothes I am wearing. I’ve described my look as “anywhere from hipster chic to kawaii gangsta Harajuku princess”. This is the epitome of the latter. I love sailor moon, I love pink, those converse are kawaii as fuck and yeah fuck you I’m wearing Prada sunglasses. I don’t really dress like this all the time, but I wish I did more often. I mostly don’t because I want to keep the look fresh. I wore this outfit because I had an art exhibition at my college and wanted to express myself.
I also find men’s fashion extremely limiting in both types of clothes, cuts of clothes and colours. Women have so many beautiful options. So I pillage their aisles a lot because I wanna look pretty.
This was also a statement. As an artist I think fashion is incredibly important. This day, I wanted something that not only reflected my personality and artistic sensibilities but also have some social commentary. A lot of my work, or what I want my work to speak about, is sex and sexuality and notions of gender and gender roles. How many of you knew pink actually use to be associated with boys, not girls? Personally I think the idea of “This is a boy colour”, “This is a girl colour” or “Barbies are for girls”, “Power Rangers are for boys” is dumb as fuck. Creating social and cultural boundaries does nothing but limit the potential of a person. By dressing like this I am breaking that boundary for myself and attempting to reflect that sentiment.
Keeps getting better. Rock on, man.
You dress however you want, sir, because with that attitude you’d rock a burlap sack.

I also like the look the model gives the camera like ‘and you were expecting another over-sexualised commercial with a half naked woman for your male viewing pleasure. Mind fuck bitches.’
Perverted bastard deserves it. This guy make dudes bend, ‘til the point of where the word “straight” isn’t a word in their dictionary.
About a year ago, a member of the church informed me that she’d be by to talk to me about an event she was hosting. The church doors are automatically locked during the week, but can be opened from inside using a phone-linked buzzer - if you don’t have a key, that’s the only way to get in. At the time, she didn’t tell me when she’d actually be coming; I try to stay at my desk as much as possible, but I do occasionally have to do stuff in other rooms or relieve myself.* Hence, when she came by I was away from the phone, and she wasn’t able to get in.
Though I’ve discussed what happened, she considered, and still considers this to be, an insult and a slight. Ever since that occasion, she’s gone around telling anyone who’ll listen about what an inexperienced, careless secretary I am because I “don’t even answer the phone.” She’s sugary-sweet to my face, but because she’s elderly, she frequently goes off on one of her rants about me within earshot without realizing that I can hear her.
Today, she was at the end of the hallway my office is in doing this with one of the volunteers. I finally got up, went in, and said “Just so you know, I can hear you.” She looked shocked for a split second and then went “I know you can hear me! I’m not saying anything I wouldn’t say to your face!” Okaaaaaay.
Everyone else just laughs her off because she’s a bitchy old hag in general, but seriously, I wish she’d transfer to some other church.
*The phone rings a lot, but in unpredictable patterns - it’ll be quiet all morning, but as soon as I’m too far off to get back to it in time, it starts ringing. The former secretary actually got a bladder infection from trying to hold it to answer the phone. Since I had chronic UTIs from age 1 to 14, I refuse to hold it, so that’s just too bad.
