I get so incredibly anxious about throwing up I always keep it in till the last possible minute. It’s actually easier to do when I’m drunk because I don’t get as anxious then. It’s been a long time since I threw up sober. That was awful.
Also I didn’t make it to the bathroom and it went on both my favourite cuddly wool sweater and my woolly socks. I’ve never washed wool socks before, I hope I don’t mess them up :/
At least it’s over now and I can have some food and curl up on the sofa and play Skyrim.
Getting Called Out: How to Apologize by chescaleigh
This video explains how to react to being called out and how to treat the people who call you out. Also great explanation why intent doesn’t matter compared to impact.
I fucked up many times before and got called out for things I have done, and I didn’t always react in a good way. I put the blame on others and got protective, even when it was me who was at fault. I am since then trying to get better, but it is always good to get a reminder to be open for explanations as to why things I do are wrong or harmful.
I’m glad that the maker of this video actually addresses her “Queen For a Day” video. I saw that a while back and it made me super uncomfortable and unhappy for the reasons she discusses here.
And then I sent this video to my family.
We watched this in my Group Process class. Watch it, learn from it. PLEASE.
What the fuck is that, “act my age”?
What do I care how old I am?
The Ocean is old as fuck.
It will still drown your ass with vigor.
OKAY SERIOUS TALK GUYS!
This clown has been seen over the past few weeks around Mansfield, Chesterfield and Doncaster, I haven’t seen a post about it on here and I really want people to know about it.
Okay so first of all besides it being really frickin creepy to begin with (designed to look like pennywise the clown) it has been roaming the streets at night time, it was started out by a student film director who was doing it for fun, but it has sparked a few people to take it farther.
Some of the clowns have been tapping on windows, trying to get children out of the house (Reportedly) also it is believed that some of them have knives and are marked as dangerous.
Please please please if you live in these areas or know someone who does, especially of they have kids, could you signal boost this? I just really want people to be safe!!
I heard friends say that he’s been sighted in Nottingham and Lincoln as well. Good thing I live on the 6th floor. Hard to tap my window.
There’s not just one, and they’re in sheffield too, a girl from my year got a picture of one on the road that my school is on. They will follow you home, muggings have been reported, although it is not believed that they go into buildings or actually attack anyone with their knives.
Apparently there is one in Lancashire and burnley too! Pls be careful!
They walk inside people’s houses if the doors aren’t locked. They also aren’t near my town, but everyone’s talking about them.
there was one at my school a couple of weeks ago and we got told that if you see one to report where they are to the police straight away
They’re being seen in my town and I work nights.. great.
They’ve been seen in Kings Lynn too, my sister’s friend found one in her garden late at night. Please, ignore them, and contact the police if you see one.
Norwich too, be careful folks!
This is awful.
Today in Thailand, riot cops yield to peaceful protesters by removing barricades AND their helmets in a shocking gesture of solidarity.
what you are seeing is not cops showing a sign of solidarity
what you are seeing are pro-royalist cops ignoring their democratic government and allowing pro-royalist protestors to continue their attempted coup
what is happening in Thailand is the equivalent of what happened in Spain when the monarchists/fascists/conservatives rebelled against the newly elected republican government.
Tumblr needs to stop glorifying every protest as if it is some radical thing, a lot of the ones I’ve seen on here getting re-blogged are simply protest porn without any appreciation of what has is actually happening
I’ve literally seen leftists on here reblogging pro-loyalist photos of riots in Northern Ireland…
here’s a link to what is actually going on in Thailand, at least according to the news sources:
Who are the protestors
Mostly metropolitan and middle-class, they are a loose coalition of anti-Thaksin groups associated with the opposition Democrat Party and likely backed by Thailand’s traditional elite: big businessmen, conservative generals, aristocrats and royal advisors.
Who supports the government?
Pheu Thai’s populist policies ensure it commands huge support in the densely-populated rural north and northeast of Thailand and among the urban working-class.
Why is Thaksin such a divisive figure?
Protestors view Thaksin and the Yingluck government as hopelessly corrupt and as a challenge to the authority of Thailand’s revered monarch, King Bhumibol Adulyadej.
people think cops would actually suddenly become capable of acts of solidarity with anti-authoritarians?
get a grip.
Walked past an offensive ad or poster lately? Wished you could effectively but quickly draw attention to what was wrong with it?

Disney vs. 7 early fairytales
The 1812 version of Snow White is even worse when you consider that the girl was only seven years old in the tale (plus her unconscious body ended up being carted around by the prince until one of his servants accidentally woke her up). Also, in The Little Mermaid, the mermaid’s unable to speak because she had her tongue cut out >__<
But I’d love to see faithful adaptations of the original tales. Especially Bluebeard. We need a Bluebeard adaptation.
Actually, the original-original pre-Grimm Brothers’ stories that were passed around Europe via oral tradition are nowhere near as violent as the Grimm’s made them. Cinderella’s stepsisters were never ugly and kept their eyes, Snow White’s mother was not even a villain (instead a group of bandits were), and instead of spending the whole story napping Sleeping Beauty outwitted a dangerous bandit leader, wouldn’t let him sleep with her, and saved herself.
The original oral stories were radically changed by the Brothers Grimm to fit their personal and political beliefs. Most notably, they often added in female characters solely for the purpose of making them evil villains and took away most of the heroines’ agency and intelligence. Both brothers belonged to a small fanatical sect of Catholicism that vilified women because of the idea of Original Sin and Wilhelm in particular had a particularly deep hatred of women. The Grimms were actually pretty horrible people. Those cannibalistic queens and ugly stepsisters and the mass amount of violence against women didn’t exist until the Grimms wanted them to. Their ideas stuck so soundly though that we now assume they were in the original tales and that these terrible characters and ideas come out of some perceived barbaric Old World culture. But in truth they’re really the Grimms’ weird obsession with hating women showing through. The original oral folklore focused on the heroes’ and heroines’ good deeds and used them as ways to teach cultural norms and a society’s rules and encouraged girls to be quick-witted and street-savvy instead of passive princesses, and the Grimms promptly stripped that all away.
"Grimms Bad Girls and Bold Boys" by Ruth Bottingheimer is an excellent book on this
I am so happy about this post, you have no idea.
Also the Grimm brothers paid people for stories and folklore which they then changed drastically. A lot of them won’t be anything similar to what the “original”, oral version of the story was like.
Also the Grimm version of Rapunzel I had when I was a kid had the witch throw the prince down from the tower (after tricking him into climbing up Rapunzel’s hair, which she had cut off before sending her away). He landed in some thorny bushes that pricked his eyes out so he wandered about the wilderness, blind and bleeding, searching for Rapunzel.
