I do, however, have thrush.
Guess who’s got two thumbs, one giant tonsil and is not going to work tomorrow!
Tawny: I’ve already got the undercut in place. I just worry about funny tufty bits in the back… I should probably wait until someone can help me later this week. Probably…
Michaela: I don’t have the compulsive urge to remove all my hair like you do. I just change its color instead. But quite possibly sound advice, nonetheless.
Which reminds me… I really need to get around to bleaching and the purple-ifying my hair over the holidays.
I am in serious need of a haircut. The back and sides of my undercut are getting shaggy and silly looking. I’ve buzzed my hair before, but haven’t done it myself with this cut and I’m worried about fucking up the back. Should I brave it or wait until I have help?
P.S. Tawny, Michaela, and Serena, I’m looking at y’all.
Shout out to all the closeted LGBT people who have to return to unsafe family environments this season. Remember that there is nothing wrong with you and that no, you are not a hypocrite for loving the people who raised you despite the things they have done to hurt you. Above all remember that you will always have friends who support you even if your family does not.
If you follow my personal blog or my instagram, you would already be aware that this little costume has been taking up my evenings and early mornings for much of this week, and it is finally done!
My little Asgardian now has her very own battle gear, weather appropriate for where we are in the world, and she could not be more thrilled. This afternoon has been spent jumping off elevated surfaces, pounding her little fists on the floor to “make a storm come”, and chasing poor little Elsa around screaming “come here, Loki! COME PLAY WITH ME BROTHER!”
I’m no costume designer (closest I’ve ever come to costume design was when I worked at Club Med and spent some time under the sewing table drinking the terrible resort wine right out of the bottle.. ahem..) but I feel like my efforts have paid off. Not bad for a $2 sewing kit, a couple of pillow cases, some paint, and a K-Mart playsuit, right?
PERFECTION, THY NAME IS TINY THOR
Oh my god tiny Thor.
The world’s most viewed TED Talk. In GIFs!
I just can’t reblog this enough. If I filled up my tumblr with just this it wouldn’t be enough. Most of all I wish I could tell my immediate family about this because they perpetuate me growing out of creativity -.-
If you haven’t seen this TED Talk, I highly recommend it.
One of the things I’ve really focused on as a parent is making sure my kids know that making lots of mistakes is the best way to learn something new. If you get something on the first try it might be exciting, but you haven’t really learned anything. This is definitely something I was not taught as a child, unfortunately, which made me averse to trying anything new out of a fear of failure. It’s taken me a long time to retrain my thoughts to not take errors as huge blows to my self-confidence.
My kids deserve better. All kids deserve better. ~JJ
