It's just another day...

I am a 26 year old Southern/Texas girl who blogs about children, adoptee rights, adoption reform, child welfare, gymnastics and basically anything that upsets, delights, infuriates, or interests me. I am also an immigrant to the UK.

Anyone have any ideas on how to raise money? I really want to get our rent arrears cleared (£750), but I don’t have any ideas. I don’t have anything to sell, and I’m not crafty so can’t do an Etsy shop type thing.

I already have one full-time job, one part-time job, and one once a month life modelling thing, but those just pay for current bills, not any of the debt we have.

Anyone have a stream?

Imagine this: A child has three parents, either all living together or the Dad living nearby and involved: Mom, Dad, and an unrelated person (who is married to the mother) in a parent role. Can you think of any cute names to call the third parent?

Relational titles (aunt/uncle/etc) are out as they’re reserved for actual relatives (although I am fond of titles like the one Rufus Wainwright and his husband chose, Deputy Dad, it’s just a little wordy). Would you create a different special name for the parent based on gender?

finally something that treats introverts and extroverts as equals

The punctuation is even accurate holy shit

Freaking thank you. Being shy and being an introvert are not the same thing, as well as being obnoxious and being an extrovert.

my fifth grade teacher once told my parents in a report that i was “comma happy”

Hmm… I seem to be naturally an introvert, with a lifelong habit of making myself act like an extrovert. Not a bad pself-psych job, really, and I’m betting there are a lot of other actors and dramaturges who’ve pulled the same trick in their time…

What does it mean if you’ve got 2 ticks on the Shy column (at one point would’ve been all in that column), 2 in the Extrovert, and 2 in the Introvert…

I just realized there’s a pretty good chance Harry became abusive toward his family in some way.

Like, he was 11 years old and the first adult he met that he looked up to was Dumbledore. His adolescence and teenage years were spent being manipulated by Dumbledore and having to risk his life…

Questions i also ask myself. Mental health doesn’t seem to be a magical priority, unfortunately.

This is exactly why I’ve spent YEARS searching for a fic where Harry was abusive in some form to his kids (or he spent a lot of time researching and reading and consciously choosing to do it differently but obviously still struggling with it).

I’m going to the hospital tomorrow to get some blood tests done to find out whether or not my uterus problems are caused by something that means I won’t be able to have kids or something that can be treated / doesn’t affect my fertility.

I will be so pissed if it’s something that renders me infertile. And by pissed I mean I will either kill myself or become a nun. And probably also write hate letters to my adopters and key members of my natural family.

But I’m just hoping it’s something treatable and/or that doesn’t affect fertility.

Dear Tumblr,

Stop showing pro-adoption ridiculousness on my dash.

Sincerely,

Very Annoyed

How is this even possible?

  • Our energy company has sent a letter saying a debt collector will be visiting and charging us £55 unless we agree a way to pay.

And from what money, exactly, do you think you’re going to get that £55? The £19 we’ve got for food for the next couple weeks?

  • I wrote to our rental place on the 22nd to apologise for rent being late and said that I’ve got a new job that hasn’t paid yet, but I do have a job so things will be stable again. They wrote back saying thanks, but can you pay in full by Friday because the landlord’s mortgage is due.

What part of “just got a job that hasn’t paid me anything yet” is difficult to grasp? Pay you with what money, exactly???? Monopoly money, maybe?

I just sent them £200 (of £750) of our rent, and the energy company should have gotten my letter proposing £10/month repayment by now.

And let’s not forget all the other places we’re behind with and/or that I’m ignoring (*cough*SallieMae*cough*).

Sigh.

I wish an anonymous generous benefactor could pay our past due bills so that we can actually be caught up by the time I get my first full month’s worth of pay at the end of July. That would be so nice.
