reblog if you ARE gay, if you SUPPORT gays, or if you like to OPEN people’s WINDOWS in the middle of the NIGHT and put DOZENS of GEESE in their BEDROOMS. Let’s show the world that there’s a 1 in 3 chance that we’re kind of a dangerous person to be around.
I Am Just… Gonna let you guess which one of these three I am.
As with all signs, there’s both, good and bad:
Capricorn Negative Traits: * Has a tendency to be selfish which portrays them as being unfeeling and calculating * Rigid emotions, can seem cold * Difficulty understanding (or caring about) others * Can be pessimistic fatalists * Can be miserly and…
I Am Just… Telling you this is pretty accurate. Apparently I scare the crap out of people before they meet me. I swear I’m friendly.
The only thing standing between you and your goal is the bullshit story you keep telling yourself as to why you can’t achieve it.”

I Am Just… Wishing really hard I could put this up in my classroom.
But when it comes down to actually handling the nitty-gritty of relationships, we’re given no pointers… or worse, we’re given advice columns in women’s magazines. Yes, it’s trial-and-error from the get-go. And if you’re like most people, it’s been mostly error. But part of the problem is that many unhealthy [Read More…]
I Am Just… Sharing some advice I thought was pretty good, even if its delivery is a bit hard to swallow.
He sends me these every Friday. This week it’s a gif so I had to post it on Tumblr.
Happy Friday errbody!
Badass trips on a not-so-badass budget.
Many travel blogs are written by people who’ve sold all their possessions and have taken a huge plunge into the world of long-term travel. This can sound expensive at first, but when you consider that you don’t have rent or a car payment in this…
I Am Just… Planning my trip thanks to my friends excellent travel advice.
Do you ever want to grab someone in your class
and pull their face close while staring at them in the eyes then whisper
shut the fuck up
I Am Just… On the verge of doing this everyday.
Boy, STFU!! No girl wants a know it all, talk all the damn time, smellin’ himself too much as a boyfriend. Honestly, your voice is irritating in large doses, which seems to be the only way you know how to give it out.
Sometimes being a teacher sucks.
My friend Kansas’s amazing Catwoman costume. She made this. With her hands. Okay, her sister helped but she MADE. It.
Also, it was a big hit at the Block Party.
A reply to: An email, sent by me to the producers of WTNV
Hi, just some general comments about WTNV.
1. I love this show and have listened to almost every episode at least twice.
2.HAVE THE FACELESS OLD WOMAN TALK MORE.
3. My favorites have been; Lights in Raydon Canyon, The Glow Cloud, Pilot, The Faceless Old Woman and A Story About You.( I loved hearing about myself on the radio!)
4. I loved the Apache tracker, The Faceless Old Woman, The Vague Yet Menacing Government Agency, Mayor Pamela Winchell, Intern Dana and Tish Hidge.
The only thing I really have a problem with is Cecil/ Carlos. I can take the swearing in the weather, and the slightly PG-13 bits that could have been left out but Cecile/Carlos? No. If you support Homosexuality, support it. But do you really have to put it in an otherwise great podcast? Was it necessary? No. Could Carlos have been an girl? Yes. I had to skip most of First Date because I was so disgusted by what was described. This and only this is the reason is why I don’t donate to your show or buy things from your website. By doing this you are trying to normalize homosexuality, teens listen to your show and if they see things like that they will think its normal and that everybody does it. I am not a homophobe and I don’t hate homosexuals. I simply ask that you think twice before putting stuff like this in your podcasts.
I Am Just… Not really on board with this.
I saw the post where WTNV tweeted about an email sent by a listener who had some misgivings about the gay content on the show. While searching Tumblr for WTNV things, I came across the actual email, the listener posted it I guess hoping to get vailidation in writing in to the show. Rereading the email got me to thinking. Not in the, “Huh, never thought about it that way before” way, but more in the “You know, that’s really not cool.” Not that you asked, but here is why as a fan of WTNV, I am not really on board with this email.
A) A fan should like a show for what it is, not for how they want to change it cause it makes them feel uncomfortable.
This part of the story, the Cecil/Carlos love story, is a constant thread in an otherwise inconsistent story arc. It’s why WTNV works on a certain level, because no matter how kooky things are outside of the studio, you know Cecil will be obsessed with Carlos. This is part of the story (like it or not), so like the story for what it is, not what you want it. If a story doesn’t make you think, it isn’t a good one. That is my opinion and feel free to disagree as much as you like, but you if you want to change my mind, you are going to have to try hard than “well, it makes me more comfortable if Carlos is a woman” reasoning.
B) The hardest part about being a teen in this current society of extremes is feeling normal.
America is, in media terms, a culture of extremes. If you consume media in any form produced in this country, it will be on the far ends of the spectrum as far a messages go. I find those messages to be very false but still hard to dismiss. I am an adult and know this because I knew a time when TV resembled real life, or at least a better image of life but most teens watching TV today have no idea that the images being shown to them are false. They are in a constant cycle of consume and imitate. LBGT teens are the ones hardest hit by those messages because most of those messages are that of extreme dismissiveness or exclusion. WTNV exist outside of this spectrum of extremes and I think give validation to those dealing with a difficult transition in life, going from child to adult. Those teens who listen can for a moment feel like they are “normal”, for lack of better terminology. Being a teen is hard and nothing cuts you more as a teen than someone telling you “you are not normal for having those feelings and you should kill that part of you”.
C) Podcasting is fairly easy, being creative consistently is not.
Probably the thing I find most irritating about this email is how dismissive the person is about the goodness of this show. As a person who makes a podcast, I can tell you actually making a podcast is somewhat easy. The equipment is fairly cheap and being creative is extremely rewarding. BUT being consistently creative on a certain level is hard and I mean very, very hard. So hard in fact, if you took 100 people and gave them the stuff they needed to a podcast free of charge and told them to make something, only about ten of them would do it, only maybe five would be able to do it long term. If there is something you don’t like about your favorite show or movie or podcast or song, don’t complain to the person being creative to change it, GO MAKE YOUR OWN THING.
Now, having vented about someone else’s opinion, I feel I have articulated my arguments well and inconsequentially into the loud din that is the internet. Take my words at no value because in the end they, like the email above, don’t really matter.

I Am Just… A bit Greekish
I saw a post that referenced a personality test based on the four Ancient Greek temperaments. Here is my result. It is astonishingly accurate, which makes me think that those Greeks had quite a lot going for them before the Romans showed up.
Your temperament is choleric. The choleric temperament is fundamentally ambitious and leader-like. They have a lot of aggression, energy, and/or passion, and try to instill it in others. They can dominate people of other temperaments, especially phlegmatic types. Many great charismatic military and political figures were choleric. They like to be in charge of everything. However, cholerics also tend to be either highly disorganized or highly organized. They do not have in-between setups, only one extreme to another. As well as being leader-like and assertive, cholerics also fall into deep and sudden depression. Essentially, they are very much prone to mood swings.
My final art project from last week.
I had to use two different art movements so I used pop art and Impressionism. The TARDIS is the pop art bit and the background is based off of Van Gogh’s A Starry Night.
I used colored pencils
I Am Just… Gonna give you the A, okay?
If my student turned this in for an assignment, not gonna lie, I would give them an A. Actually, they earned it, because the background is a pretty good stab at impressionism. Though the TARDIS has too much depth to truly be Pop Art (this style is defined by it’s bold flat colors and repetition), the whovian in me would over look that and just give this student an A.
