I just want to say from the bottom of my heart I didn’t sign up for this shit
The other day I watched a little boy get knocked to the ground by an older kid who was running by. He burst into tears as his mother hurried over.
“Here’s a bandaid for ya,” I said, producing one from my vest pocket.
“Oh, he’s not bleeding, thank you though!”
I lowered my voice and leaned in. “Kids think bandaids are health magic,” I said. “Ask him where it hurts and exploit that placebo effect.”
She did just that, and instantly the kid stopped crying and thanked her. “I’ll have to remember that,” she said.
Also if you have a crying kid give them a cup of water. You can’t cry and drink at the same time and it gives them a chance to calm down.
Tell them their going to run out of tears so they drink the water.
My mom does this at her preschool after awhile the other children start offering the crying child little cups of water.
The mental image of 20 3yos clammering to give another crying 3yo a glass of water has me on the edge of needing a glass of water
1. None of my family is on here
2. Barely anyone in my life knows the website even exists.
3. employers won’t ask for my tumblr handle
4. Website doesn’t post a “timeline” with laser-targeted ads about me.
5. Non-algorythmic feed. It lets me read shit in the order it was posted.
6. Can’t see other people’s follower counts. Big and small blogs interact/mix better, no one is idolized.
trying to protect friends from a show that you put so much time in but were betrayed by
dragging your friends into a show that betrayed you because you desperately need someone to share your pain
congratulations this is the only response contrary to this post that is worthy
Coming into a fandom early and watching it become an angry clusterfuck
Being in a dormant fandom that suddenly comes alive again after a new book/movie
Don’t forget about those who come in the midst of a fandom war.
Accuracy at its best
Being in a fandom and not even knowing there’s a war going on…
all of this shit…lol
When You’re Not In The Fandom But You’re Nosy AF
When you get into a fandom only to discover it’s dead
This gets better every time I see it.
Being in a dead fandom…
Or being in such a tiny fandom that it feels like youre the only one
The accuracy hurts.
Being in a fandom that had a shit ending.
When you’ve been fangirling long enough, you’ve experienced all of the above.
Being in a fandom meant for kids.
This just gets better..
When you realize that joining the fandom has ruined you
Fandom hell in general
This^^^ just… ALL OF THIS.
Being in so many fandoms that you don’t even know what’s going on
THIS IS THE SKULDUGGERY FUCKING PLEASANT FANDOM IN ONE POST!!
Trying to recruit people to your fandom
Annnnnnndddd it’s back
Being in a fandom which has so many antis
I’ve probably reblogged this before, but that was before these great additions.
Being in a fandom that actually works together
Why is this so true? All of it.
being in a fanbase but all your mutuals suddenly turn into Kpop blogs
I always enjoy it when a good post comes around again and has been improved by the reblogs like the years for a fine wine.
Being in a fandom when shit goes down and everyone has different opinions
When you are in a fandom and don’t care for others people opinion…..even if they are right…(believe me, I have met several of those)
Being in a fandom you never meant to join
I love this. and it’s gotten better
When there’s fandom drama and you’re reading fic and just can’t be bothered
Watching some other faction of your fandom roast the antis
Being in a fandom that’s on hiatus
You as an artist or writer of the fandom.
The whole concept of “modesty” came from European Christianity
There you have it….
Worth thinking abt….
Hose sucked in by fire Tornado
i cant tell which is my favorite part. the frantic pulling of the hose as its getting sucked into the sky like a spaghetti noodle, the random “OH YEAH BABY!”, or the guy just chuckin a rock into the fire tornado at the end as if that’s gonna show it who’s boss
This is like a D&D encounter that wasn’t supposed to be hard, just spray water at the fire, but nobody could roll above a 5.
