so being a reader is basically a constant struggle between deciding on reading what you bought recently, what you bought ages ago and should stop ignoring, and what you really ought to reread.

That’s if you’re lucky. Because sometimes the struggle is not being able to afford books.

Just to give you an idea of how innocent I am - the first time I came across the abbreviation “CBT” in a fanfiction, I thought it stood for “cognitive behavioral therapy”. 

dude I KNOW what that stands for in that context and I had to think for a full minute and a half to come up with “wait, what is it if it’s not cognitive behavioral therapy?”

The scariest thing is that my mind made it work. I assumed that what was happening in the fic was a sadistic way of altering the person’s behavior. I would have been a lot less traumatized if I just knew what the letters stood for.

We are bound in a way few can even believe,Proof that you will be here, proof that I’ll never leave.Yet the parts that are us will be never unmade,For my light will still shine, and your darkness won’t fade.How it all came to be, we might never forget, Yet no part of this tale I could ever regret. The connection we share makes us boundlessly more,For no magic compares to the love at its core.

Proof that you will be here, proof that I’ll never leave.
Yet the parts that are us will be never unmade,
For my light will still shine, and your darkness won’t fade.

Yet no part of this tale I could ever regret.
The connection we share makes us boundlessly more,
For no magic compares to the love at its core.

Kind of disturbing how much of my dash right now is people fighting over what exactly caused Robin Williams’ death and what needs more representation. People yelling he was bipolar, that he didn’t just have “simple depression”. Because, you know, depression somehow becomes no biggie if you think another illness is harder to deal with. Then every once in a while someone will recall he’s battled with addition for years, and go “oh yeah, let’s not forget about that, that needs more awareness too”. Like this is a promo or a contest.
I don’t mean to say we shouldn’t use this as a reminder, but if anything, I think it’s a reminder that we don’t know what’s going on in other people’s minds, and none of us can really know what he felt and what ultimately was the tipping point. We can’t know that about anybody. The best thing we can do is just be supportive without judgment. You never know how close someone is to the edge, regardless of what it is they’re suffering from.

Mark Ruffalo makes me smile. I don’t know why, I’m not even really his fan, I don’t follow his career much, don’t know a whole lot about him. He just radiates some kind of uplifting vibes or something. I see him and I want to smile.
