woah woah woah that is so trippy
I woke up from a dream that seemed like a nightmare. It was much like an alternate universe that was possible enough to come to life. It contained my fears. It wasn’t the typical spiders and evil clowns. It had elements such as darkness and death. I was living in a state of fear. Now I can’t fall asleep to the fear of dozing back into a world that I wouldn’t dare to revisit in regrets that it may occur in reality.
this made my day! hahah! xD
i cant even
I can’t believe this episode of Adventure Time, and I mean that in the best way. Can we please take a moment to appreciate the fact that this CHILDREN’S show, (which airs at Seven PM Eastern Standard Time in the US) shown on a network that is entirely and undoubtedly produced for CHILDREN, just did an entire episode filled with subtext about an actual SERIOUS issue?
Adventure Time just addressed the fact that at some point in your life, you might be faced with sexual assault, coercion, or even, as shown in the last two gifs, emotional manipulation and or abuse. And what did Adventure Time, this children’s show, have to say about it?
DON’T LET ANYONE DOMINATE YOU OR FORCE YOU TO DO SOMETHING YOU DON’T WANT TO.
Adventure Time just told its audiences: “If some big galoot is trying to have his way with you, fight back. Don’t be afraid to show him that you are strong.” And most importantly? “Be prepared for this to happen, be ready to defend yourself.”
Last time I checked in with kids cartoons they were spouting crap like “Share with your friends”, “Help your parents clean up the house!” and, my personal favorite, “Treat others as you’d like to be treated! (Unless this is a show about sexy teen girls, in which case, be super judgmental and treat everyone around you like shit because that’s what “cool” characters do in shows, even if they’re made out to be bad guys.)” But not Adventure Time, they were like “What do children need to know that is absolutely essential?” “Well, we could tell them to defend themselves if someone is forcing themselves upon them…” “Hey, yeah, sexual assault is a serious problem. Let’s do that.” I MEAN HOW MUCH MORE FUCKING AWESOME CAN THIS SHOW GET?
/end enthusiastic rant/
I can’t sleep. I know I shouldn’t have these thoughts lingering in my mind but I can’t help but give into them. They’re dangerous. Its been many nights where I find myself tossing and turning finding ways to distract myself and ease into a good rest. However there are times when I find happiness again, but it only lasts so long until the thoughts of you appear again. I can’t reveal my emotions to you any longer because I wouldn’t want to jeopardize whatever we have now. Sure I still tear once in a while, because loving someone is never easy, especially if the person you love isn’t who they used to be anymore.
These memories we both created are far behind you now. But those memories we created I’ll forever keep with me. We were so beautiful. Yes we had our amount of falls, and that we ended up hurting ourselves, but.. I never dared to give us up. Years later the dreams and goals we’ve made will continue to be checked off our list, but with someone else. As I think about it it saddens me because you were my first love, the guy who watched the sun fade away with me, but like every sunset comes the sunrise. So whatever happens to the both of us, I wish you happiness. Who knows maybe our paths may cross again some day.
My parents are so demanding and old fashioned.
Although I dislike their ridiculously conflicting opinions that interfere with my own, I can’t hate them too much. Most of their lectures and all contain very important life lessons that I grew up with. It shaped and molded me into a morally correct lady. For that I’m thankful.
If it wasn’t for them I would have possibly became a ratchet.. loljk.
