Honestly it really does help you crystallize what you're saying. I'm a wordy person by nature so it was a lesson that was helpful in my career, too.
Not the point, but I'm sorry to hear that. But also good freaking point.
This makes me very sad, as both a person who loved going as a kid and a person who worked at one long enough to get a small pension payout from them. It's really not the same.
Yeah my skin is in emergency mode.
What's up with holidays this year and bringing a violent change in weather. 19 is January weather you guys, we're ahead of ourselves! I don't even know where my coat IS.
I'm goin' full Whovian again. I need to catch up and then some.
Listening to someone explain ESR meters in a Scottish accent is actually pretty entertaining.
Tfw your husband calls on behalf of the perpetually hungry cat. This guy.
But if you are not okay and not with people who make you feel love and safety, I hope there will be outstretched arms and moments of peace for you in the midst of it even if from strangers.
All hail me, I am your Turkey Queen by birthright and I decree that you must enjoy today with food and those you love and be grateful for the good things in your life and I wish you good eats, and so much love and safety and genuinely good things that make your heart sing.
If you're stuck in a bad situation, may you find someone awesome to help you through it and still manage to get some time to enjoy yourself in whatever way YOU enjoy yourself. QUEEN TURKEY DEMANDS THIS.
Most of the time I loathe being the center of attention or trying to be the queen bee. HOWEVER, my birthday is on Thanksgiving this year which makes me head turkey which means what I say goes and that means...be kind, eat lots, have FUN where and when you can.
Now I'm searching google docs for login information from over 12 months ago because for some reason my business email doesn't want to play nice with our actual website. Whee.
Ah yes, fighting with a banking institution was on my list of things to do today. It's been over an hour. Lovely.
I wish anyone anywhere would cut me a break for my birthday. It ain't happening and I'm just...ugh.
I quit all holidays for the rest of my life.
Black Friday? I'll be working. Cuz yeah. So great. I wish we could just stop the week here and I could lay down for the rest of it.
Thanksgiving was my favorite holiday of all time forever. My whole family would be there, it'd also be my birthday, there'd be movies and food and cake and pie. This year there's gonna be jack shit but depression and despair.
Also, my birthday is Thursday. And it's gonna hard core suck, and I don't even want to do the rest of this week anymore.
It's insanely shitty to ghost someone you owe money to for over a month, pop back up to pretend like you're gonna pay, and then go silent again.
Things I need to update the fastest so I can get back to work: Lightroom, Photoshop, my iPhone. Things that take almost as long as PlayStation updates to finish: Lightroom, Photoshop, my iPhone.....
I also did a lot of walking on a windy but fair November night so I took a lot of random snapshots
Tonight I shot at the #Shortcut100 festival and had a lovely time
Every time I genuinely ask for help doors get slammed in my face.
You'll never truly appreciate the awesomeness of your partner being able to fix the furnace in the middle of the night in November when it randomly stops working unless you've had to call an hvac guy on your own dime.
Almost always like living near the elementary school unless it's 3pm on a school day and I need to get somewhere.
This is the caliber of pies we're slingin' at our house these days, completely from scratch down to tavern style crust and sauce. And dammit, I'm gonna brag about it.
I know it'd be cooler if I was all mad about the snow, and if I am it'd just be cuz I need to go take pictures of some fall foliage that might have just gotten 'kilt' but honestly, it's a little magical and I'm digging it.
These are legit some of the best things I've seen this year. I will be purchasing.
did those terrify anyone else as a kid or just me? And it was my family handing them out....
These two have combined their powers to wish you all a Happy Halloween!
Go forth and make strange alliances. In the snow. Because it's snowing a lot. Get candy. And cocoa?
I kept balking at TV being a comfort thing for me primarily, but the more I think about it the TV was on when I'd be with my grandma or my mom was at work, and as an only child the noise of a TV helped me feel less alone. Even as an adult that's still true. Even if I'm barely watching.
I've had more than enough of people hearing "video game" and acting like anything said after that can't be important or relevant. It's a 187 billion dollar industry, it's an art form, and PLENTY OF US work IN THAT INDUSTRY. Blowing that off and being condescending to the work is gross and ignorant.
Inb4: Why's she in spaaaace?
Because that's the picture of her I always have available on my desktop for showing her off because SPAAAACE.
One of our adorable little black cats, Worf, wants to sniff the breeze all the time, so I open the window for him and put on a sweater.
But my other adorable black cat, Jadzia, was looking for a cozy place to lay. So I balled up my sweater. Now it's cold AF in here and the cat has my sweater.Oops.
Pet peeve of mine: abbreviating words by taking out just ONE letter. Like, ok, sure, I get it, character limits, but if the word was hand and you abbreviate it hnd are you doing anything at all, really?
I don't know why our business would need an industrial 3d printer, but I just saw one on TV and I wants. Y'know, for business reasons.
How many times in how many towns have police already been warned about someone (usually a cis white male) and whoopsie doodles, he goes out and kills 18 people. It's almost like it's time to throw the whole police out.
Until now I had no reason to try Waze....
I bet he bought and killed Trapper Keeper and made it some sort of stupid vanity/subscription service.
Well, this sucks. Matthew Perry seems like a guy who struggled so much, in and out of fame. But he also seemed genuinely funny and nice despite struggling so much. He was really talented and will be missed.
Matthew Perry drowned to death Saturday, law enforcement sources tell TMZ.
Don't make the mistake of thinking you know what someone needs better than they do no matter how well you know them. Just listen to them no matter how hard it is to not want to do something different. I fail at this consistently so I'm just putting it out there while I try to do it.
It was at this moment she realized nature was returning and it was BlueSky. Thank you, @neilgaiman and "Are U real?" guy
And on one fateful night in October, she remembered the last place she'd left her damn keys and didn't have to search for them for at least five minutes in despair and panic. MAGIC IS REAL.
