The Tag Game

i was tagged by piratejazzy

The rules:

Rule #1: Always post the rules. 
Rule #2: Answer the questions the person who tagged you asked, then write 11 new ones 
Rule #3: Tag 11 people and link them to the post

1.) What is your favorite game
Currently, Minecraft.

2.) Who was the biggest influence in your life?
I don’t even know, to be honest. My parents let me do whatever so long as I’m not mooching off of them. My sister tries to shape me, but she fails at it. I guess my teachers had a lot of impact on me.

3.) Favorite book series?
Oh, gosh… I want so badly to say A Song of Ice and Fire, but that’s not it. It’s The Carrie Diaries.

4.) Favorite movie series?
Series, eh? Well, I haven’t much choice aside from The Lord of the Rings, even if I dislike The Two Towers. Because really, there’s no other completed movie series that I truly love.

5.) Bands you want to see in concert?
I’ve already seen Lights, but I’d see her again. Also Tycho, Wild Nothing, and Lorde.

6.) If money was no issue, where would you travel?
Is “everywhere” an option? If not, Ireland.

7.) Book you would like to see be a movie?
I know it’s already been made into a movie, but Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell. It needs a remake. If that doesn’t count, the Wicked Lovely series by Melissa Marr (which is already going to be made into a movie so my wish has been granted!)

8.) Book that should have stayed as a book
From what I hear, The Giver by Lois Lowry. From what I’ve experienced… Oh gosh, there are so many. The Great Gatsby, because they concentrated too much on the visuals and not on the meaning; Twlight, because it’s just… augh; and The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, because while the movie was incredible, they changed so much of it that I scarcely recognized the characters when I read the book — and liked the book a lot more.

9.) What kind of car would you want to drive?
A dragon. Serious answer: a Kia Soul.

10.) Fondest memory
Being on my swing set when I was younger, listening to music.

11.) Dog or cat?
If I weren’t allergic, I’d say cats. But Strider would kill me in my sleep. Dogs are a lot more playful, anyway.

I’m not going to tag anyone because I feel as if I’m bugging people, even though these questions were the highlight of my day. If you see this and you want to do it, then by all means, do it! Just make sure to tag me so I can read your answers ;D

  1. Think of one regret: is it something you did do, or something you didn’t do and wish you had?
  2. How long does it take until you give up on something (if ever)?
  3. Talk to me about your current interest/obsession.
  4. If money, travel, and education weren’t an issue, what job would you take?
  5. What are the top 5 most played songs on your iTunes (and, if lacking iTunes, what are your top 5 favourite songs)?
  6. Link me the funniest YouTube video you’ve ever watched.
  7. If you had the chance to rule the world, would you do it?
  8. You’re lost in the woods with your favourite celebrity crush. You’re both wearing tank tops, cargo shorts, socks, undies, and sneakers. You find a plush, soft blanket in a nearby hollow. The sun is going down. They’ve got a fire going, but it’s low. Do you a) bring the blanket over and share it, or b) throw the blanket away and risk the cold temperatures in order to strip down and cuddle naked with them? (Because lord knows, I’d choose the latter. If I’m going to die, I’m going to die happy as fuck.)
  9. What’s the strangest lyric or song you’ve ever heard?
  10. If you had the chance to move into your dream home and live your dream life, no questions asked, but you have to leave your family and friends behind, would you do it?
  11. Describe to me the last time you felt truly content.

i see that in your asexual awareness and education post you have failed to mention ME, the ALLOSEXUAL who ALSO EXISTS and the kind of things I ENJOY, please be so kind as to reaffirm that I am in fact the NORMAL one here on this, your post about asexual awareness and education

This is too perfect.

in one of The Giver trailers, the narrator literally says “In a world where love is forbidden, they will fight to bring it back.” like okay that’s not what the book is about at all

I’m on Tumblr because I’m distracting myself from writing a graphic sex scene that’s actually vital to the book.

It’s out weird writing graphic sex scenes it you’re ace? Like i couldn’t imagine writing a milking a cow scene since I’m uninterested in that.

Eh, it’s really boring, to be honest. I’d much rather write a battle scene. But sometimes my whole sex-repulsion thing will pop up and it’ll take me an hour to write a 1-page scene (like 300 words). Most of the time I just laugh and scream things like, “Why does the word ‘nipple’ exist? It’s so embarrassing to write!”

So basically that skinny shaming post reminded me of when I lost a lot of weight in seventh grade after my mental breakdown and everyone kept telling me to eat, asking me if I was anorexic, etc. and it just brought back a lot of bad memories.

Like I really don’t care what other people want any more. I don’t care whether or not you find “skin and bones” sexually attractive. Franky, I’m grey-ace and am 99.99% likely not to want to sleep with you, anyway. So it really doesn’t matter whether or not you find me aesthetically pleasing. And if my weight weren’t natural or “the way humans should look/be”, then I wouldn’t be this way. But I am, and I’m real, and I’m human, so that’s got to count for something.

Skinny Shaming

Ok, so i’m not trying to get you to pity me, but I felt the need to address this. I’m a size 0-2 (depends on the store), and I weigh less than 100 pounds. I eat what I want, exercise regularly, participate in PE, and my doctors say I am at a healthy weight for my height (i’m barely 5 feet). I constantly get called anorexic behind my back, when in reality I am very healthy. I eat veggies, fruit, protein, all that good stuff. But I also eat cakes, cookies, snickers, candies, ice cream, etc. And no, I do not throw it all up. It’s just the way I am, I was born with this body type. But something I’ve been noticing on Tumblr, Facebook, Twitter, and in real life, is that when people are trying to defend and comfort someone more curvy,  often times we just insult people who are slim. Sometimes that evolves into stereotyping people who are slim to be anorexic, ugly, and just disgusting. Now, don’t get me wrong, I have absolutely nothing against people with curves. I think everyone is beautiful, but this just pisses me off so much. I mean, I’m starting to feel bad about being slim! What I want everyone reading this to remember is that

  • not all slim people have an eating disorder
  • never insult another group of people to defend another
  • except all body types
  • there is such a thing as skinny shaming, and it needs to stop

Writing’s a lot like cooking. Sometimes the cake won’t rise, no matter what you do, and every now and again the cake tastes better than you ever could have dreamed it would.

Tear gas

Do not wear contact lenses if you are in a situation where you may be tear-gassed.  When I went through basic training, we were warned that there was a possibility the tear gas they were using could melt contact lenses.

BOOOOOOOOOOOST!!!!!!!!!!
