when someone asks me what kind of music i like
My level of sarcasm’s gotten to a point where I don’t even know if I’m kidding or not.
This is such a good question and it deserves to be addressed when I’m sober, BUT I WILL TAKE A CRACK AT IT:
With Mickey’s process, there’s more of a precise, narrowly designated cause, because Mickey had a larger barrier in place, so he had to have a specific force to overcome that boundary. To wit, Ian didn’t come into the relationship with comparable baggage of believing himself unlovable, so to some extent it was easier for those feelings to begin to develop in more of a fluid, amorphous way, because it was just enough for Ian that it was chemical, that it was automatic, that it went unanalyzed. The thing with Ian’s feelings, the truly precious and wonderful thing about them, is that they weren’t analyzed. Because Ian didn’t feel a need to locate a cause, it wasn’t something that deserved to be interrogated. Ian’s thought process in season one, to Mickey’s complete uncomprehending disbelief, is just, “Well…yeah, why wouldn’t I like him?” There’s a sense that Ian’s ability to see the true person underneath Mickey’s armor is instinctual, immediate, unconscious.

My sister is 16 and she’s running a black mail Mafia.
She’s going places.
DO NOT DISMISS A SOMETHING A CHILD IS PROUD OF. LOOK AT IT. POINT SOMETHING OUT AND TELL THEM YOU LOVE IT. IF A CHILD DRAWS YOU A RAINBOW, TELL THEM YOU LOVE HOW IT HAS RED. THEY WILL THINK “WOW. IT DOES HAVE RED. THEY LOVE HOW I PUT RED IN IT. I PUT RED IN IT. AND THEY NOTICED.” MAKE SURE YOUR CHILD KNOWS YOU ARE PROUD OF THEM.
I had a dream last night that Jesus finally resurrected and when white people found out he wasn’t white they arrested him for 2000 something years of tax invasion
