Thoughts, Opinions, and other brickabrack.


My name is Jennilee. Call me Jennifer and you die. I am thirty-something, trying very hard to graduate from college, and opinionated like you wouldn't believe. I'm un-apologetically liberal and pagan. I have no problems with other people's beliefs until they try to shove them down my throat. I'm also un-apologetically childfree. (google it if you don't know what it means)

This blog contains: Opinions, Random things I find on the web that I like...also random thoughts from my brain. Don't expect too many deep thoughts, I have an LJ for those.

Questions? Comments? Tomatoes?

when people attack trans* ppl for “making up words” like genderqueer and etc, makes me wonder where they think words actually come from. is it god? does god make the words? or perhaps some sort of mischievous river spirit

as a linguistics major I can confirm that it is in fact a mischievous river spirit

Strange women lying in rivers distributing words is no basis for a system of language.

Reblog for that last comment, as it made me LOL

Anonymous asked: Um. Clint makes Steve and Bucky read Harry Potter. The Avengers all have very, very strong opinions about which house they get sorted into. Bucky thinks he's a Slytherin, but Steve says he's a Hufflepuff through and through.

ifeelbetterer:

"This isn’t a legitimate classification system," said Steve angrily, throwing the book onto the couch next to Clint. "This is bullshit. They’re children, for cripe’s sake.”

Clint’s eyebrows rose to comical levels.

"You can’t just isolate different children or—or— or try to predetermine their characters at age eleven," Steve said, thoroughly angry. "And you certainly can’t condemn an entire fourth of your school’s population to a villainy house, what the hell is that?”

He started to pace.

"As if people never change! As if there’s no moral or ethical growth after age eleven!

Bucky reached over Clint and picked up the book. Clint gave him a look and he shrugged.

"Hell, if it makes Steve this angry, I gotta check it out," he explained.

"This isn’t a basis for education!" Bucky shouted. "Where are the art classes, huh? Kids this age should have access to art classes."

"Exactly!" shouted Steve. "Maybe a little less institutionalized racism and a little more arts education, am I right?"

Clint buried his head in his hands.

Girl and her dragon growing up and growing old together and stuff. ( I picture dragons having very long lives so it would suck making human friends OTL ) It started as just the first pic but then I wanted to draw the dragon after it hatched and then it just continued from then on…

I am sure its by no means an original concept so I’m gonna add mine to the pile of mythical creature friendships  :)

I’m having a horrible artblock so I’m just finishing up doodles I did at work over 4-5 months ago or something OTL

I broke shell in your hands, as red as a poppy;

your love was a jewel,

your hair the first and only gold

I ever hoarded.

.

In winter, I grew to serpentine loops

in your warm arms;

you held me like coils of priceless silk

and told me our secret name

was trust.

.

later, we basked in the sun

by a sea so immesureably old

I forgot to notice that you, too, were ageing.

.

you taught me to fly with paper wings.

like a stringed kite, you were tethered

to an earth I only learned to leave

because your love bore me up

like a soaring thermal.

.

the first time your heart broke,

I held you close and wondered how it would feel,

when you broke mine.

.

years later, when your hair turned white as eggs. 

I carried you

as you once carried me, your bones as fragile

as the shell I’d long outgrown - 

.

and now you’re gone.

I cannot call you back.

I guard the earth that tethers you

and hope you’ll wait, my darling - 

only wait,

'till I am done.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

THIS IS THE BEST SCENE IN THIS ENTIRE TELEVISION SERIES AND YOU CANNOT CONVINCE ME OTHERWISE

My personal problem with “You got this”

Slight rant, but I’ve been under a ton of stress lately. I’ve got 5 different IT/Speaking competitions to prepare for in less than 2 weeks and it’s not an easy thing to do when also preparing to leave for these competition conferences, keep up with homework, keep up at my internship, and my commute to and from school. I’ve been worried about these events as well as trying to find a full-time job once I graduate. I’ve been working very very hard in the last few weeks and I constantly feel like I’m treading water and barely keeping afloat. I am always worried about failing.

Whenever I express this emotion at all, people have a tendency to say this phrase or a similar one to me “You got this Jennilee, you’ll be fine.”

I hate this. Not because I begrudge anyone their faith in me. It’s the phrase itself that bothers me. I get it, the person who says it wants to reassure me that I am as good as they think I am. But this particular phrase does not work for me. Saying “You got this” to me implies that my non-belief or worry about my abilities is silly and completely unfounded. It puts the onus on me to just “get over” my insecurities. Even if it’s not intended that way, it always feels that way.

If you want to encourage me, and make me feel like you believe in me, then say that. Say “Jennilee, I believe in your abilities even if you don’t right now. I have faith in you and know that you will do your best.” It’s a bit longer and less “cool” but it, for me, is a lot more reassuring than “You got this.”

/end rant.

As if I didn’t have enough on my plate right now, relationship crap has to pop up.

I feel like I can’t post about this here. This is a public blog, and no one is on LJ hardly anymore.

*sigh*
