Science is so awesome

Wed Sep 4, 2013, 3:44 PM


So there was a mysterious horned "sea monster" that washed up on the shores of a beach in Spain. I've noticed that some officials think it's a dragonfish, and others think it could be an oarfish or a ribbonfish. And I would be inclined to believe them, except for the fact that none of them have ever been recorded as having horns. I've done my research and looked up photos of each of them, and none, not one, have ever been recorded as having horns. Now, I'm not saying that it couldn't be any one of those things, but what if it's something new entirely? I mean, 95% of the ocean remains unexplored, so who knows what's down there. Like I said, I could be wrong, and it could be whatever the officials think it is, but, just think about it… What if we discovered something new? How cool would that be? Anyway, those are my thoughts about it. What do you lot think? Think it's something that's already been discovered? Or have we just scratched the surface of finding something new?

So, apparently, thinking up a what if scenario in which the main character of a show or book has a mental illness, such as schizophrenia, is ableist and discriminatory. Which is completely and utterly BAD.

Except that there are fanfiction writers that write similar situations and scenarios for popular characters all the time! And for them, that's okay.

I just... I don't understand, I guess? I mean, I was never trying to be rude, or make fun of schizophrenia, when I wrote up my "what if" scenario; I wasn't trying to do anything except fuel the imagination and get people thinking. But apparently, when I do that, I'm being discriminatory against people with mental illnesses. Yet, there are fanfiction writers who can do the same thing, and no one yells at them.

I'm so confused! :iconotlplz:

So, my birthday is next Friday, which normally for me, would be just another day; except for the fact that I will be turning 21.

Now as I understand it, the social norm for people turning 21 is to go out and get drunk because they're of legal age now. Except I don't drink, and don't really plan to anytime soon since I still, sadly, live at home. My reasoning? I don't know what I'd act like drunk and am kind of scared to find out, as well as my mom and her boyfriend are both very dry, sober people and I am doing my best to be respectful of that. And herein lies my dilemma.

I have two [technically three] options for what to do with my birthday. I can go with my sister to visit my dad's family in Kansas City, or I can go camping with my "friends" [it is in quotations because of reasons] here. No matter which option I choose, someone is going to be telling me I need to drink and I can do whatever the hell I want because, "You're 21 now! You're an adult!"

And I just… I really don't want to. I mean, I really wanna go visit my dad's family since the last time I saw them was at a funeral [also I know they'll respect my decision to not drink, though it won't stop them] and I wanna make some happier memories with them. But I also don't want to disappoint my friends here [who will attempt to peer pressure me into drinking and smoking; and not for the first time]. I just… I don't know what to do…

Maybe I should just stay home and hide away in my room all day. Otherwise I feel like I'm being pressured to do something that I'm not comfortable with and I just… Help, please. ಥnಥ

As some of you may know, I have a second account dedicated to my photography. Well, as of sometime this week [or maybe next week] I am going to start work on transferring all of my photography over here under a folder titled Beautiful Sins Photography.

Just wanted to let you guys know.

Texting

Journal Entry: Mon Jul 1, 2013, 8:05 PM


How come you can't even get two seconds into a conversation with someone online anymore without them saying, "Text me!" What if I don't have phone? Or I'm not much for texting? What if I feel we haven't talked enough yet to transition into texting each other?

What is our obsession with texting someone before you even know what their favorite color is? Or who their hero is? Why is everyone rushing into things?

Why cant we all just slow down, and take it one day at a time? Why can't we all slow down, and get to know each other before we jump into things?

What can I do?!

Journal Entry: Fri Jun 7, 2013, 10:10 PM


My mom just scared the shit outta me.

Explanation: My mom doesn't walk - or stand - very well. I blame this on all the years she worked at JC Penny and all the standing still she did while she worked there.

Anyway. She was just standing here, in the kitchen, talking to me, when she fell down. She crawled over to the couch and stood up, and told me she was okay. But guys… She scares the shit outta me sometimes. She's always falling down and I don't know what to do.

I mean… Is there anything I can even do? She's gone to the doctor and they've told her that there's nothing they can do for her or that there's nothing wrong with her, but…

I just… I'm terrified of the day when me and Joe aren't here to help her up when she falls, and she's not close to anything that she can grab onto to help her stand again. What happens then? Because God only knows when me or Joe would be home to help her up, or how long it might take her to crawl to something she can grab onto and pull herself up.

And I just… I… What can I do? Are there exercises or something that she can do that would help her out in any way?

Excitement!

Journal Entry: Fri May 3, 2013, 7:14 PM


Have I told you guys yet that I get to make a short film for my Media class?! It may not seem like such a big deal to anyone that reads this, but it's a big deal for me. Why? Well, for the simple fact that I've been wanting to make a short film for ages! And now, I have a better excuse to make a film than just the traditional; "Because I wanna!"

Anyway, I really had no point in posting this besides telling everyone that I'm excited! And so, since that has been accomplished, I now bid you adieu. G'bye loves!

Favorite Villains?

Journal Entry: Wed Feb 27, 2013, 8:53 AM


I gotta say, when it comes to villains, there's amazing ones and then there's… Not so amazing ones. Some of my favorite villains of past and present are the Sharptooth from The Land Before Time [c'mon, who didn't like him? I mean yeah, he was trying to kill everyone, but that's kinda the point], the Joker [who doesn't love a crazy mutherfucker?],  and Amon from The Legend of Korra [Only five episodes in and this guy has seriously grown on me] just to name a few.

Though I will admit that my list of villains doesn't stop there. I mean really, there are just so many deliciously evil villains out there, I just can't name all of them! [Though admittedly, part of it is I can't quite remember all of them at the moment.] Of course, I do have one more to add to my list of villains. Who is it?

Macavity the Mystery Cat. I just… ADKJFHFKH~! Love this guy. So much. Don't ask me why because I really can't explain, but Macavity is one of my most favorite villains ever. Just. So much love for him its crazy.

Anyway, ending on that note. Who are some of your favorite villains? :3 Oh! And I forgot to mention Azula! Again, I gotta tell ya, its the crazy mutherfucker factor. Gotta love those psycho characters. :]

Spread this around

Journal Entry: Fri Feb 8, 2013, 9:55 PM


I see so many people saying that they are not worthy or deserving of the love and support they receive from others. But they are so wrong about that.

To those of you that believe that your life is meaningless, worthless or that you are undeserving of goodness, kindness, happiness, and love, I just want to tell you something.

You are worth it. You deserve every happiness that comes into your life. You are worthy of love and kindness. You are deserving of every good thing that happens in your life. The fight for that happiness may be long and hard, and may be filled with people that will do their best to drag you down, but never stop fighting.

If you get dragged down, claw your way back to the top. Remember that there are people who love and support you, even if they have never met you. Remember that things only stay bad for a little while, and is always followed by good. Remember that those who belittle and bully you, are going through their own problems and also need to be shown kindness, and even so, will get what they have dealt to you dealt back to them in tenfold.

So, I know that life sucks, and people are going to be rude and try and drag you down, but please, keep fighting. There are so many people that love and support you and want nothing more than to see you happy. When you are upset and hurting, they are pacing their rooms, wishing there was some way for them to comfort you and make you believe that no matter what you've done, you are loved.

So please keep fighting, keep your chin up, and most of all: Remember that you are loved, despite what you may think. And you are worth every good thing and happiness that comes your way.

Help, please?

Journal Entry: Fri Jan 4, 2013, 9:38 AM


So. Somehow my nice little Tumblr, that was originally just a bunch of random stuff, has turned into an advice column. Which is fine, I don't mind that. But sometimes I get questions that I can't answer without a little bit of help. Which is what I need now. So... Help me? Please?

Anonymous sent me: I'm gay but my parents are homophobic, what should I do? I need to rely on them for college and school and everything, and I don't want to lose them, but I want to be myself. :(

And besides saying that while it may be detrimental, they should probably talk to their parents, I don't know what else to say. So... Someone help me give this poor soul a good answer? Please?
