So I know that not everybody will see this [so I’ll reblog it later] but I’m doing Christmas cards this year! And if you want one from me, you should totally put your name and address in my inbox. =] Or I’ll just address the card to your url if you don’t wanna give me your name. That’s cool, too!
Guys, I need a separate paycheck for clothes. And then another one for all of the things I want from Bath & Body Works.
Just bought a pair of size 32 tan rolled cuff Capri jeans on eBay for $25 and it’s the first new item of clothing I’ll have gotten in probably 6 months. I really hope they fit, I need them for work. :/
My lunch is so yummy! It probably sounds weird, and looks weird, but it’s so nice. :) I got a box of Pumpkin soup from Trader Joe’s the other day and I didn’t know what to do with it. Well, since I had some onion, garlic, celery, and carrots laying around, I chopped them up and threw them in a pot to sauté with some olive oil. Then I remembered we had a jar of roasted red peppers, so I sliced one up and tossed it in. I chopped up some precooked chicken and put half of it in the mixture. Then I added the box of pumpkin soup. To get the rest of the goodness out of the box, I put a bit of half-and-half in, shook it up, and poured the rest in. After it heated through, I put about 3/4 of it in the blender to make it a little thicker and heartier (and less chunky) and poured it back in with the unpuréed soup. I garnished it with a little sour cream…yum! It feels like I’m getting a cold and it feels good on my throat. I also have a couple russets baking in the oven. A warm, filling meal! :)
I have a million cravings and most of them are chicken wings. But also I want some really juicy beef tips or some beef stew or a huge loaded baked potato or just a fuckton of pasta carbonara. I also need something to do with all this half and half! Foooooood.
Buffalo Wild Wings cheesecake bites are proof to me that humans have already accomplished what they were put on earth to do.
I know that a lot of you [my followers] don’t like John Green (though I’ve never seen Hank hate but maybe I wasn’t really looking?) and I’m okay with that (he has done and said problematic things, I won’t deny it, but I’ve seen him make fantastic apologies and if you haven’t you haven’t been given good links…and as I’ve made mention of in lots of previous posts, holy cannoli guys we are all human we all do problematic things and ninety eight percent of the things that he does and writes and collaborates with and for make the world an infinitely better place) but I’ve been watching vlogbrothers videos all morning and I just feel a million times better than I did yesterday. The Green brothers care so much about people and about making good things with good people and making it available to lots of people in ways that are different and better. They are so innovative and kind and generous and so is a massive fraction of Nerdfighteria. I am so thankful for all of the awesome that being a Nerdfighter has brought into my life, because for a long time, my life was full of lots of worldsuck. Thanks, Green brothers, for bringing us all together in so many beautiful, interesting ways as fandoms and geeks and nerds and students and teachers and authors and readers and musicians and artists and etc. Our (read: Nerdfighteria as a whole) collaborative efforts have made my life a lot better. DFTBA. =]
I am currently experiencing my (probably) least favorite combination of feelings. I am extremely bored but I’m fighting that depressed lack of motivation that makes me not want to do anything. I hate fighting against myself like that. :( I hate feeling like I’ve wasted a day doing nothing.
Somebody should come make me some food while I lay in bed because my head hurts so bad and I’m tired of always being the cook. Muh.
Someone take me back in time so I can relive this perfect hair day?
How come nobody ever told me that Trader Joe’s is incredible and (mostly) affordable!? :DOr that dark chocolate roasted pistachio toffee exists!?!
It’s really fuckin cold in this apartment today and I am also really hungry but I don’t know what to do! Buhhh somebody make me a really delicious hot meal and then cuddle me
Dear 16 year-old me,
It’s gotten so much better. Please don’t hate yourself; you’re so kind and generous and forgiving. People will always take advantage of that, but it doesn’t mean that those are bad things to be. Don’t give any weight to what people say about you, not even your mom. Your facial hair doesn’t bother anybody else, you didn’t ask for it. Boys aren’t as important as you want them to be. Nobody will ever be able to give back what your father took from you, but one day, you will finally feel safe enough to be at home in a sweet Noodle boy’s arms. He’s worth waiting for. I know how alone you feel, but so many people care about you. They don’t know how to talk to you, that’s all. I’m sorry for all the scars you have, and all of them that you’ll get. I know you love your body, and how ashamed you are for wanting to be even bigger. I’m sorry that anybody ever made you feel ashamed for loving yourself. It’s going to take a long time to unlearn. You are so beautiful and so worth it. You’re going to want to give up, but you’re stronger than you’ve ever believed. I won’t lie to you: it’s gotten better, but that doesn’t always mean it’s easier. You’re going to make it. We’re going to make it. Not for anybody else, not to make the world happy; because we deserve it. We’ve endured heartache and pain, abuse and violence, and we do it every day; but I know what’s going to happen, and how much worse it’s going to get. Don’t feel bad for falling apart. I’ll hold you together. I love you so much. It’s okay if you don’t love me back, it’s hard for you to trust people. Thank you for going to the mental health hospital, even though you didn’t want to. We’ll get through this. One day your smile will be genuine. It’s so much better now.

Guys, this made my day so much better. =] I’m really good at doing HP themed stuff because I love it so much. I mean, I made myself a Hufflepuff scarf, it would take like no time at all to make some mug scarfs or something along that line. :3 I am so excited. And veritas, I’d love to make you one! :D
