I felt this way when I saw Gatsby and everyone gasped when Leo was shot. I wanted to stand up and say “read the fucking book!!!!”
Not everyone had a school that had them reading The Great Gatsby, so it’s perfectly fine for people to not have read it before the film came out and discovering about it thanks to the film. That doesn’t make them uncultured or stupid. There’s so many books that are central for other cultures that you haven’t read, but nobody comes busting your balls for it so enough with the “read the books” thing. It’s not a shame to not know something, and it’s not because you do that you are better than other people.
not everybody has access to books for various reasons
some people have learning disabilities that prevent them from reading
some people just don’t like reading and theres nothing wrong with that either
stop shaming people for not reading books its really fucked up
Yesss. I mean, do we just expect everyone to have just read every single “classic.”
Even people that do read a lot of books, they may not have read that specific book, but maybe they want to go see the movie anyway.
And then of course there’s the people who just don’t like reading and that’s perfectly ok! And there’s people who don’t read a lot because they have a hard time with it for a variety of reason, and that’s perfectly ok too!
I’ve always loved reading but there are a lot of times where ADHD interferes to the point of not being able to read much of anything, even things I really enjoy (often times when this is the case I’ll use the text-to-speech function on my kindle and I’ve heard people who think listening to books “doesn’t count”).
Reading about coming off of Effexor, especially suddenly (not that I was planning on doing it any time soon, but sometimes I research the drugs I’m on just for the hell of it) and omfg it sounds horrid. Definitely NEVER doing that, not that I was thinking about it to begin with. But yeah. O.o
Some people actually fucking think it’s more important to defend abusers than it is to be a barely decent human being to survivors. And sadly, it’s really not that surprising but it’s disgusting as hell.
Of course the day after I get rid of most of my hair is the day it’s cold and rainy after quite a bit of warm weather. But whatever my head is so soft. ^.^
Good enough for tonight. I’ll see if I want to do anything else with it tomorrow. :3
Eh, I don’t know how good the bleach I’m using is, idk if it will get it light enough for, I just grabbed some random thing from Bimart, so I’m just going to bleach the sides for now. Maybe I’ll change things up with the top later.
Hm, well now I’m thinking of bleaching the whole thing and then I’ve got some manic panic atomic turquoise that I could either dye the whole thing or just the top (I kind of like the two different colors so I’d probably do that). I hate being indecisive. XP
empresslynn replied to your photo: Way shorter than I originally planned. But it was…
imo you should bleach the sides. Or clean up the spottyness of the color a bit. I like it lots though!
Yeah, I originally thought that my roots had grown out enough that I’d end up with just brown on the sides but it turned out way more of it is still purple and I don’t really want to do it any shorter, so I guess bleach it is!
Way shorter than I originally planned. But it was really therapeutic for me today and I feel WAY more stable now. Going to do a little bit of touching up after I take a shower in a bit. I also kind of want to bleach the sides but I don’t know if that would look weird?
Ok, well today has been incredibly tough so I’m going to shave the sides of my head because having new things with my hair to be excited always seems to be helpful for me. I’ve never done this before though so we’ll see how it goes. I don’t think I’m going to do it SUPER short on the sides but still fairly short.
Does anyone else on Adderall still get hungry? The way the doctor and my partner described it to me, I assumed that decreased appetite was pretty much a guarantee, but I’m still getting hunger pains. Is this normal? I mean it’s actually good for me because it means I’m more likely to eat, but still my partner has like zero hunger on adderall.
Ugh I went to bed way too late last night and it took me probably two hours to go to sleep and I’m guessing I only got about 5 hours of sleep AND I have a physiology test today. I skipped all my other classes though.
Also right before I finally did fall asleep I had the biggest anxiety attack I’ve had in quite a while. It was really out of the blue and I just started feeling worthless and I wanted to either die or cut myself and I hated the fact that I have school and volunteering commitments because everything sounded like too much effort.
But apparently I fell asleep right after that so maybe it was what I needed?
Either way, I’m going to get up, go take my test, take a shower, and then probably just nap and play video games the rest of the day because I deserve it. :3
I’ve never really leveled up my pickpocketing skill much in skyrim because I figured I’d be too impatient, but this game it was the first skill I maxed and I pretty much pickpocket everybody I meet even if they don’t have stuff just cause I can.
The best thing is when I’m sneaking around and they happen to see me and they’re like “You’re not a thief trying to rob me, are you?”
This person has been liking a bunch of my stuff on facebook and I think they’re a distant relative because I have two mutual friends with them, both of whom are my dad’s cousins. But this person has “men and women” listen under the “interested in” thingy on FB and I got kind of excited because I’m one of the only queer people I know of in my family.
But also they live in Australia and they graduated high school before either of my parents were born. I mean I guess that reinforces the relative theory because how else would my dad’s cousins know them, but I’m still confused.
I bought myself some beef jerky to take to class with me because, tbh part of me was excited for Adderall because of the decreased appetite and I figure if I’ve got beef jerky in my backpack to snack on throughout the day, I probably will.
