aw man you never got to show me a picture before they put the bars up, laaaame
yo it was really cool! lying on the roof so high up and staring at the sky and being able to see for like five miles in every direction is so amazing. but also really dangerous. I admit that going up there in the first place probably isn’t the smartest decision, but I was far more responsible than the kids who would go up there, get shitfaced and/or high, and then try and come back down. so I guess it’s for the best that they barred it off.

Yeah, he was on the freshman basketball team this past winter, too, but there were better players on the team so he didn’t get much playing time so he’s decided he doesn’t want to do it again next year. Baseball is his favorite sport, anyway! And my brother is of about average intelligence, he’s not incredibly smart, but he’s definitely not dumb either. His thing has always been sports, and mine has always been academics, so we don’t compete too much. And I would have Alec climb a tree with me if not for the fact that he is deathly afraid of heights.
It’s a funny story - last summer, I got back from vacation and wanted to surprise Alec with a spot to hangout I thought was really nice. In the shopping center right near my house, there’s this four story high building that’s half apartments, half offices, and it’s open to the public so you can walk up the outside stairs. There was this one ledge on the stairs where if you swung yourself over the railing and crawled onto the ledge, you could get on the roof, run a little ways along the top, and then get to the highest spot where you could look out onto the entire town and relax while watching the stars. It’s slanted, too, so you have to be careful and know what you’re doing. I told Alec where we were going and asked if he was afraid of heights, which he said no to, but when we finally got onto the roof he was shaking and basically hyperventilating. Apparently he had been too embarrassed to admit that he’s afraid of heights until we were about fifty fucking feet above the ground with no way to get down except for jumping back onto the ledge because he’s an idiot. I was scared as hell he was going to pass out or fall off because he was so nervous (and at that height, falling would mean either death or a pair of broken legs), but we got down safely and he calmed down after a little while. He later told me he didn’t want me to know he was afraid of anything, so he decided to traumatize himself instead. My combined love of climbing things and trespassing made that the perfect spot, but unfortunately they’ve since put metal bars on the stairwells so you can’t get to the roof anymore because they realized what kids like me were doing. And I’m definitely not going back with Alec, anyway.

This movie was AMAZING
I loved playing outside, so tag/manhunt/capture the flag and all those games were my favorite. And this isn’t exactly a game, but I always loved climbing trees and I still do. Besides physical games, I was obsessed with The Legend of Zelda series and Pokemon, so I spent the rest of my time playing those. I love TV tropes! And when I was little I used to utilize big words to try and sound more intelligent, but I realized I was just being annoying most of the time. I also used to correct absolutely everybody’s grammar (I still do that, but only among friends). I was probably a huge pain in the ass to be around.
And yeah, tryouts for the baseball team were this week, actually, and he made it! He’s pretty good so it’s not a surprise, but he’s still really excited to play in high school for the first time and few other freshmen that he’s friends with are on the team, too. There is no freshman baseball team at my school, so he’s on Junior Varsity, so I was teasing him yesterday because I was on a Varsity team my freshman year and he won’t be.

Here’s the thing about being pro choice that people don’t get…
You don’t have to morally agree with abortion to be pro choice. That’s why it’s not called pro abortion. It’s an understanding that you can’t make that choice for someone else and they have full control over that not you. It’s pro I’m not the boss of everyone else.
This is important.
I’m pro choice in the way that I feel that everyone woman is entitled to choose which way she wants to go but pro life in the way that personally I don’t think that abortion is the way to go for me
it's where i belonged.

maybe i’m a goddamn bleeding heart hippie liberal but i’m totally down with paying an extra .50 cents for a thing of fries if the person who makes me those fries doesn’t have to work 3 jobs just to survive.
most studies show that prices would only have to go up by 1 to 3 cents in order to raise employee wages significantly
or, you know, the ceo’s could take pay cuts but that would be so hard for the poor multimillionaires

Yes high school and college AUs are cool but. Have you considered middle school AUs. Imagine your favorite characters going through various painful phases: meme, weeaboo, scene, swaggie, you name it. Imagine your OTP being in their random phase and thinking they’re going to marry each other. The shitty angst poetry they write. Their old deviantarts. Just fucking imagine it okay you don’t have a choice now.
