29, Oakland, fan of bacon.
@Neve Garrett You obviously don't live in San Francisco. It is a Thing here.
I just finished re-reading SOTL yesterday. You forgot the part about having large quantities of beef brains on hand to rub into your skin, keeping it soft and supple.
@roseandthen Pretty much all the stuff I got done was with the support of my siblings, a therapist and an SSRI. I still count it, because sometimes asking for help is really the biggest accomplishment, not what happens afterwards. Also, barely making it is really fucking hard, so that should totally be celebrated. Ever take a swimming test? Treading water is exhausting. It is real, hard work. I might be a stranger on the internet, but I'm proud of what you and all the other Toasties have accomplished.
Well, now the Lakme duet will forever remind me of Susan Sarandon's breasts. I am okay with this.
I got a LOT of stuff done - signed up for Obamacare, found a doctor I liked, got an eye exam, filed my late tax returns, did my fafsa on time, and asked my family for help with my credit card debt. Some of this was hard, some was easier than I expected, but it has all led to positive changes in my life. I have a hard time giving myself credit for stuff, especially when it feels like other people manage these things routinely, but I try to remind myself that anything I do to make my life better is something to be proud of.
@birthdaycake I looked at the website, and it might be Hugh Jackman? I don't find him that beautiful, but he's one of the cover stories.
@Rookie (not the magazine) (not that there's anything wrong with that) I don't think Canadians are lacking in mustaches, so feel free to dig that package out of the trash.
Now I want a Donna Tartt memoir.
This is totally reminding me of my high school Wicca experiments, and what I found so compelling in them. Ritual + transformation. Powerful stuff.
I am so glad I'm not the only one with a secret Tumblr. It's not my fault I discovered fandom late.
