I think I’m being too efficient at my internship? Like I’m supposed to help post press releases and I feel like my friend who I’m working with is gently trying to slow me down because I rip through them so fast.
What can I say, I live on the internet. I live on a blogging site. Posting things is a well-fostered skill of mine.
Maybe you should stop making everyone else look bad.
“You cry “oh to be in some far city and feel the smothering pain of the unrecognized ego!” (Do you remember? We were self ultimate once). But I do not wish to escape to myself, I wish to escape from myself. I wish to obliterate my consciousness and my knowledge of independent existence, my guilts, my secretiveness, what you would (perhaps unkindly) call my “hypocrisy.” I am no child of nature, I am ugly and imperfect to myself, and I cannot through poetry or romantic visions exalt myself to symbolic glory. Lest you misunderstand me, I do not, or do not yet, own this difference to be an inferiority.”— excerpt of a letter from Allen Ginsberg to Jack Kerouac, July 1945 (via lord-edmure)
Reading slash fic for pairings I’m really unsure of always consists of me making an awful, horrified face as I click through the warnings on AO3 then suddenly it’s like 3 hours later and my face hurts from making that face and I’ve read like ten different fics.
I’ve been working on my first chapter for approximately a hundred years (read: a week and a half) and that was really bumming me out before but now I’m just laughing. I mean, I did set June as the hard deadline for when it had to be done so I still have a handful of days to write the last two freaking paragraphs.
