Okay, so this was an AU written by one of my teammates (sofilledwithfeeling) for the Cabin Crew Riot Two. If you don’t know what that was about, well, this was submitted to the blog for that, so you can check all that out. But the way it was…
11 questions from heart-mind, who gave me such a nice inbox surprise aaa <3
1.If you could rate your happiness from 1 to 10 where 1 is the worst you’ve ever felt and 10 is the best, how would you rate your current happiness?
A 3 on a bad day and a 5 on a good day, it’s not been a good couple of months. Next week will be better! I’m going to the Maldives!
2. How many pets have you had, if you’ve had pets?
I’ve lost count! Three that I’ve been old enough to remember and really cherish, all cats, 2 living.
3. How many countries have you visited/lived, if you’ve gone to other countries?
19 as of now, hopefully at least 21 if you ask me this question again next year. I’m fortunate enough that my parents have the travel bug, and took my brother and I along with them on a lot of vacations. Plus I went to uni in Australia, and live in Singapore, with easy (and affordable!) access to lots of countries in south east Asia.
4. What is one word that describes you?
This is really tough, I’m super verbose, but for the last year I think the word would’ve been PROCASTINATION, in giant sky writing.
5. Are you introverted or extroverted?
Introverted for sure.
6. What is your ideal vacation?
My ideal vacation is one where I don’t have to spend too much money on flights and accommodation, in a place where I’m fluent in the language (or can at least understand key words), where I can indulge in both shopping and photography, and have access to internet everywhere I go. I have basically taken this ideal vacation in Seoul three times in the past four years and have to stop myself now because my dream vacation is a Safari-Sardine run two hit combo on my wallet that I have to start saving up for. South Africa 2014!
7. What do you blog about the most?
Oh man. Doctor Who and Sherlock, for sure, although ever since I started this “don’t post anything until you’ve made something to post” goal for myself, I haven’t really been posting at all.
8. What is the best thing that happened to you in 2012?
Participating in Party When Dead, for sure, because I met so many great people I still keep in touch with to this day. Picking up the ukulele as well, because I’ve always been kinda sad that I couldn’t play any of the instruments I’ve tried to get good at, and now I’m actually good at one and am teaching it to my friends even. It’s really great!
9. What are you most proud of?
I, to paraphrase Benedict Cumberbatch, wish I could say I am most proud of being a mother. Since I can’t, I’m most proud of the fact that I’m not dead. It was touch and go there, a couple of times this year I had the note ready to go and everything, but I didn’t want to be selfish, so. Here I still am. Can’t get rid of me.
10. What is a quote you really like?
"You never know what’s around the corner. It could be everything. Or it could be nothing. You keep putting one foot in front of the other, and then one day you look back and you’ve climbed a mountain." - Tom Hiddleston
It’s just a really great quote to live by, because a lot of life is just putting one foot in front of the other wondering if there’s any point to it.
I met a man today I met him on an aeroplane He kept me company He said “I’m Captain Martin Crieff”
Hello, hello, I’m Molly Hooper Hello, hello, I think you’re super And I think it’s pretty cool that you’re flying the plane But if you don’t mind my asking who is flying the plane 'Cause you're sitting here with me and I've just remembered You probably have a co-pilot
I met a man today He definitely did not crash that plane We’re going out for tea Me and Captain Martin Crieff
Hello, hello, I’m Molly Hooper Hello, hello, I think you’re super And I think it’s pretty cool that you don’t find me insane And you think it’s pretty cool that I’ve dissected a brain I’m already picking out my white gown and train Our children will be lovely
I finally got around to it rerecording this! I wrote this for a Party When Dead prompt just a few days after I first got my ukulele and I did not know how to play that thing, so I literally hit a chord at a time and then Frankensteined that song together in Audacity. I’ve improved a little now, I think.
I can’t remember the name of this ship is it something cute?
Knit an ugly hipster sweater depicting Arthur Darvill in an ugly hipster sweater, and then send the ugly hipster sweater to Arthur Darvill so you can have Arthur Darvill wearing an ugly hipster sweater of Arthur Darvill wearing an ugly hipster sweater.
THEIR FACEBOOK GROUP. OH MY GROD. DFKLASDHF REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY.
We would just like to clear up one issue. One of the major questions we receive is that “Isn’t every month Heterosexual Awareness Month?” The answer (stated over and over again) is that only July is (official) Heterosexual Awareness Month. But we are working on gaining a second month in 2013.
PEOPLE LIKE THIS EXIST AND SOCIAL JUSTICE WARRIORS ARE HERE ATTACKING CASUAL TUMBLR USERS FOR ASSUMED SLIGHTS AND THOUGHTCRIME!?
This is your annual reminder that The Salvation Army threatened to close all of their New York City soup kitchens if they were going to be forced to stop discriminating against their gay employees. I don’t know about you guys, but I don’t want to donate to any charity that would use the hungry as a bargaining chip to get what it wants. There are better charities to donate to. There are charities that donate 100% of their money to the people they’re trying to help, rather than taking some of that money and using it to fight against gay rights (as the Salvation Army does.) There are charities that don’t state on their website that homosexuals are morally obligated to live a life of celibacy. There are charities that accept everyone and help EVERYONE.
For more information on how exactly the Salvation Army is anti-gay and, just in general, horrible, you can click here.
And please, if you’re my friend, or if you know any gay people, or even if you’re just not an asshole, PLEASE stop going bargain-hunting at the Salvation Army. And stop donating your money to them. There are better places for clothes. There are better places to donate.
Okay, here’s the situation. Having read David Wong’s article about getting off my ass to create instead of consume, I’ve decided that spending hours a day on tumblr just reblogging isn’t doing myself any favours.
So here’s my new year’s resolution for 2013: I’m going to create. I’m going to make a post a day with something that I’ve made - gifs, art, photography, music, fic, whatever. I’m not going to let myself browse my dash until I’ve made this post for the day. And I’m going to start today, because I’m tired of giving myself imaginary starting lines that I eventually just forget about.
I’ve still got a few posts in the queue, but that should run out by today or tomorrow. After that, if you catch me not doing what I said I would, please call me out on it. Remind me that I want to be more than what I am right now, and the only way to do that is to do something different from what I’m doing right now.
That being said, if that’s not your cup of tea, if you don’t think you’ll be interested, feel free to unfollow. Seriously, I’d rather you do it now than later, because I’ll just think my stuff is that bad, and I am very easily discouraged.
