I just got a notification on fb that my 10 year high school reunion is going to be in the fall this year.
This is real.
Is this going to be like the movies?? Am I going to be the only one not married with a dozen offspring? I didn’t have an old flame/crush to reunite with. I wasn’t really bullied or anything. High school had no impact on me, and I had no impact on it. I literally didn’t keep in touch with a single person from high school. I looked at the list and vaguely recognized some names but 10 years is a long time. The one thing I can do is at least get in shape. oh man. This is really weird.
for once I’m feeling good and motivated to draw, but I have hiccups and they are making it very difficult :\
Sometimes I forget how all it takes is half a bottle of wine for me to forget my fears and inhibitions and suddenly want to live my life and connect with people.
You know those posts that accuse tumblr and fandoms are the most crazy, obsessive people out there? Obviously those people have never seen american football fans. There have been fireworks and screaming and just NOISE for the past 30 minutes. More than Fourth of July! The stores were more empty than Christmas Day! It’s just….incredible to me. So surreal. I’ve never seen anything like it. All because a group of grown men managed to run a ball back and forth across a field.
everything everywhere around me is football…church was nothing but football, facebook has nothing but football, every employee in every store I go to, the only colors I’m seeing are blue and green….the only place I feel safe is tumblr.
I was looking at the comments on the Budweiser “Puppy Love” commercial and I should really know better than to look at YT comments by now, but one was:
Yes, for some strange, unknown reason, people are fond of animals. This poor person didn’t even know that until the internet. And Budweiser must have internet access as well because somehow they uncovered this information and exploited it, those bastards.
People are fond of animals. Wow.
clutter. turned 3 today!
(And thanks to everyone who’s stuck with me - moods swings, fandom swings, rants and all!)
We grew up with the Internet and on the Internet. This is what makes us different; this is what makes the crucial, although surprising from your point of view, difference: we do not ‘surf’ and the internet to us is not a ‘place’ or ‘virtual space’. The Internet to us is not something external to reality but a part of it: an invisible yet constantly present layer intertwined with the physical environment. We do not use the Internet, we live on the Internet and along it. If we were to tell our bildungsroman to you, the analog, we could say there was a natural Internet aspect to every single experience that has shaped us. We made friends and enemies online, we prepared cribs for tests online, we planned parties and studying sessions online, we fell in love and broke up online. The Web to us is not a technology which we had to learn and which we managed to get a grip of. The Web is a process, happening continuously and continuously transforming before our eyes; with us and through us. Technologies appear and then dissolve in the peripheries, websites are built, they bloom and then pass away, but the Web continues, because we are the Web; we, communicating with one another in a way that comes naturally to us, more intense and more efficient than ever before in the history of mankind.
arg damn nvm that was supposed to be a venting-but-not-posting post so sorry kids :/
man, some people who are really into things don’t understand that not everyone is into them. for example, sports. my mom was asked by the cashier at the store if she was watching the game, and she was like no we don’t watch football, and the lady said WHAT I don’t understand how someone can’t be into it and like?? I don’t go around saying, hey did you see that anime WHAT I don’t understand how you can’t be into it??? I’m glad you are enthusiastic and all but some people don’t like sports (unless it’s anime sports)
