Spoiler alert: adulthood is 96% of you going “well, I hope this is how it works and I’ll keep doing it till someone yells at me”
I am absurdly tired, too tired to think or move. I tried reading and I am too tired for that, and I am too tired to watch tv. So why is it I just lay in bed for a long ass time with all the light s out, and I still failed to drift off?
- eat dinner
- go to the store to get stuff to clear the drain in my bathroom
Just got home from an exhausting day of classes to discover that
a) there is a GIANT FLYING COCKROACH in my apartment
b) my tub is blocked up and will not drain
this means that the soothing shower I had hoped for is a no go, as if the possible bath I was thinking of instead, that I am huddled in a corner crying, plus you know, I need to run out to a store to get supplies to save myself even though I really am currently too tired to move.
we as a society need to start talking about abusive friendships, bc those exist and seem to be really common
and most people in them dont know how do deal w the abuse bc its normally emotional abuse which.gets delegitimized, and its a platonic relationship and not a romo or sexual one, so it gets delegitimized for that too
the fact that the song ‘macho man’ is still played on the radio is honestly the most mind blowing thing about our culture
the history behind ‘ymca’ was that gay men used to hang out in ymca gyms a lot, because it was a place where poor and homeless young men could work out (again, being ripped was super In with gay men at the time) and incidentally see half-naked dudes everywhere, and the locker rooms were acknowledged as the place you’d get hooked up with as many drugs as you could snort and as much dick as you could suck. now we play it at children’s birthday parties and every 9 year old in america has a vague idea of how to flap their arms in the shape of the letters
i’m dead serious when i say the influence of 70s macho gay culture on the heterosexual mainstream is the most fucking bonkers thing ever
