Writing story set in the 18th century. Trying so damn hard to be accurate, but did not anticipate use of historical detail. Stubborn- will not alter any part of the story. Inaccurate, therefore. TAKING ARTISTIC LIBERTIES YOLO … Did I really just use that phrase in this context? It’s sad because I’m more afraid of being kicked out of the “writer club” than I am of...
TEXTBOOKS FOR SALE - University/College
I did university all over the place. I rejected two Bachelors in favour of a Diploma, because it was better aligned with my interests. That was, until I researched it some more and discovered the Diploma was relatively useless unless you had already been in the industry for ten years. I dropped out before I dedicated myself to a course that would give me nothing in return (or maybe it would...
So today my mom and I were shopping and we found...
imperialdalek: ayehchai: invaderphantom0104: I WANT EVERY SINGLE FEMALE WHOVIAN TO REBLOG THIS TO SHOW MY MOM THAT DOCTOR WHO IS FOR GIRLS AND BOYS. C’mon! Let’s show her the power of the female Whovians!!! :D I JUST READ IT AND REALISED THAT I’M NOT A WOMAN BUT GIRLS SHOULD WATCH THE SHOW TOO.
My Doctor Who moment
bookwormstache: So today I was sitting in English class and i swear to god I heard the tardis the tardis I got up and asked to go to the bathroom and tried to follow the sound I followed it to the class two doors down did not knock and walked in They were watching Doctor who and one guy at the back yelled “See Miss! I told you if you didn’t lower it down it would summon the nerds”
All I want for Thursday is a cookie.
And I will not get that cookie. EDIT: My best friend sent me this about 30 seconds after I posted this post. I had absolutely no idea about her cookie intentions. I had not mentioned anything about cookies to her. This is an example of our crazy best friend-telepathy thing we have going on.
Doctor Who obsession has reemerged in full force. Too long spent away from the beauty that is the show. I have missed you, my dear friend. <3
How the Logic of "Friendzoning" Would Work If...
*Man walks into a store and finds employee*
Man: Alright, I've had enough. Why haven't you guys hired me?!
Employee: Uh...well sir, when did you put in your application?
Man: I never filled out an application.
Employee: Well sir, we can't consider you for employment if you've never filled out an application.
Man: No, that's bullshit, because I've been coming here for years now, and every single time I tell you all how much I love this store and how much I appreciate your customer service, unlike some of your other customers might I add!
Employee: Well, but that doesn't-
Man: AND I even told you that I didn't have a job!
Employee: But sir, that doesn't indicate to us that you would like a job at our store. And again, if you've never filled out an application, we can't consider you. Besides, we're not hiring.
Man: OH! Not hiring, HA! What a laugh. I see your store go through seasonal workers all the time. They come and go like nothing, but you won't consider me as a part-time employee even though I KNOW you've been looking for workers to fill positions? That's insane!
Employee: Sir, we've been looking to hire a few people for management positions. Do you have any management experience?
Man: Well no, but what does that matter?
Employee: ...Well sir, that's what we're looking for. You won't be suitable for the position without management experience.
Man: Oh that's such a load of crap. You know, you'll be waiting around a long time for a manager if you don't lower your standards a little. Who cares if someone knows how to manage a store? I LOVE this store and I'm willing to work here, that's all that should matter to you.
Employee: That...doesn't make any sense.
Man: NO! I'm done. This is over. From now on, no more Mr. Nice Guy.
Man: Fuck you, slut.

Paper Trails: The A - Z of Bookshop Customers →
Promote, promote! :) followthepapertrails: I love my job, plain and simple. Sure, I may grumble from time to time but when push comes to shove, I wouldn’t trade it for the world. The main reason I enjoy going to work so much is the customers - What you see in retail (and in life) is really only a tiny portion of the population, but it’s…
Conversation with a Paper Friend About Cool Stuff...
me: you do cool things.
i wish i did cool things.
maybe i would think i did cool things if i were in an outsiders shoes
but in my own shoes, i don't see me doing cool things.
her: want my shoes?
me: no thanks
i like watching you do cool things
and i like my own shoes better
I love my 2013 philosophies.
They’re changing me from the insid They are giving me the courage to be the best version of me. Oh, the setbacks and the falls; the shame and the vulnerability. I am learning what parts of the uncomfortable are the constructive kinds, and what are the destructive- this kind of distinguishment is difficult to accomplish only looking inwards, as I have tried so hard to do for so many years....
every day, i feel a little bit more connected to...
