Being nice is really important to me! As are a lot of other things. About Me sections are kind of hard, and you should probably just ask me questions.
Happily, madly, stupidly in love with this brilliant, beautiful lady - Jill, my girlfriend of almost 7 years. I'll probably post quite a bit (too much) about her, just as a warning.
Making mushroom risotto and steaming some green beans, and i just finished marinating fish in a ginger & scallion & sherry sauce (oh my god it’s my mom’s recipe, it’s so good, i could eat it by the spoonful if i didn’t want to make sure the fish had the max amount possible), everything’s coming together and gonna be ready to serve in ten and i am dyinggggg of anticipation.

Really really really wanting fic of a specific pairing… but i’m too exhausted by the concept of wading through it all to find something actually worth reading.
gatheringbones replied to your post “I’m in such a sad/bad mood right now, and I can’t really breathe or…”
that happens DISTRACT YOURSELF READ BOOKS FILL THE IN BETWEEN TIMES WITH BOOKS ON TAPE AND VIDEOGAMES keep talking to your shrinkity shrink ily
I didn’t reply to this when you wrote it because i only had my phone, no computer - but thank you, this was really v. calming and reassuring to read. Is calming capslock possible? i dunno, it totally worked for me :)
but yes, books are my number one defense. if i can get myself good and attached to the characters while i’m in an okay place, then that means the characters and their wonderful little insular worlds and lives and problems are gonna be there for me when i need that distraction. it legit works wonders, i’d absolutely recommend it to deal with generalized anxiety oh my gosh.
i’m not like other girls
i’m not even entirely a girl
i’m kind of a girl
but not really a girl
like really i don’t know
what am i
I’m in such a sad/bad mood right now, and I can’t really breathe or think properly - that is, I can’t really get my mind to shut up and function in a straight line and I can’t really shake this weight on my chest, no matter what I try to distract myself with.
But I started a book the other day w/socially awkward dragons & politics & music, and I really liked it. So I’m gonna try to calm down and get back into that, and maybe then things in my head will fall into line like they’re supposed to, so I can go to bed.
