there’s someone with my exact name who pops up when I egogoogle, and whoever this kid is, she really likes One Direction

and at first I was like, how did we end up so different

then I started humming Everybody by the Backstreet Boys and realised I have absolutely no leg to stand on here

Aaaand all of my perfectionism resources except this have disappeared, but if everything but one thing had to disappear, I am glad this is the thing I kept. It’s an easier-said-than-done sorta thing, but pulling back when I’m stressed out and thinking about this really helps me orient myself and go back to a healthy path.
From my Googling, I believe it’s from Ten Days to Self Esteem by David D. Burns.

Yo Tumblr! A lot of you have struggles with self-esteem. Me too! And this was an exercise I went through in therapy - meaning, yes it is professional and legit - that really helped me, a lot. I went through them at the pace of about two per week, and by the end I had a much better understanding of myself and how to adjust to a healthy model of self-esteem.

Yes, it is entirely free, no catches. No, it isn’t pirated. You do not have to feel guilty about using this in any way!

Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Homestuck
Rating: Explicit
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: The Disciple/The Psiioniic, The Disciple/The Psiioniic/The Signless
Characters: The Disciple (Homestuck), The Psiioniic | The Helmsman
Additional Tags: psionic sex, Double Penetration, Comfort Sex, Affectionate Sex, Quadrantless Sex, Quadrants What Quadrants, Implied Age Difference
Summary:

In which Disciple and Psiioniic are left behind while Signless and Dolorosa run an errand. Disciple is bored, Psiioniic wants to avoid trouble, and it goes from there.

But hey, at least there are no threshcutioners involved this time around!

Includes ridiculous amounts of quadrantless love and affection, implied age-difference, and vague references to Before. Pretty much just feel-good, fluffy, kinky smut.

“You love me,” you say, with absolute certainty, tilting your head back onto his hands.

And then the joke falls and for a moment he lets you see all those soft, vulnerable bits he tries so hard to hide from everyone else.

“I do,” he whispers, almost like a vow, as if the enormity of the fact can’t help but humble him a little.

You smile at him, pleased and kind, leaning in to nuzzle the faint imprint of his ribs that no amount of eating seems to erase completely.

“I love you too,” you promise, with all the sincerity you can muster, even if you feel, yet again, the empty space where your beloved would go, completing the circle. Then the moment passes and you grin mischievously. “And it’s not my answer to everything,” you add, shuffling a bit on your knees to lower your head to his groin. “But pailing sounds awesome just about now.”

even when i wear “man murdering winged eyeliner” and “the blood of men lipstick” the fact is the makeup industry is

  • owned by men
  • run by men
  • marketed towards women to attract men

It all depends! There are many, many, many resources for makeup that are made and run by women, you just have to do a little bit of looking!

Makeup Geek is one of the most professional I know of, with Marlena’s products tending to equal the quality of high-end things. Eyeshadows and blushes are her specialty, but the brushes are pretty good too. Also, there’s a ton of tutorials for anyone new to makeup.

Aromaleigh is founded and run by Kristen Leigh Bell, and frequently donates to charity - right now, I think they’re running a campaign for Golden Hat, since Bell is autistic and thus it’s a subject dear to her. Really good mineral products and lots of unique shades of eyeshadow! Plus, they’re all geek themed. You may have seen photos of the Hannibal collection floating around Tumblr.

Mally Beauty is run by Mally Roncal, a WOC, and is pretty dang successful! (Darker-skinned people: I believe you can actually find shades of foundation that suit you here, but I’m not sure - worth a look if you’re having trouble, though!)

Lacquistry, Arcane Lacquer, and Black Sheep Lacquer are all amazingly popular & quality indie nail polish companies, and all run by women. Lacquistry’s my personal favourite.

And, like, you’re never going to be able to escape and operate outside the patriarchy. That’s kind of the point of the patriarchy. The best you can do is use its own tools to dismantle it from the inside over a long time, shifting the balance of power. Which is what women are doing when they are redefining the meaning of makeup for them, saying that it doesn’t matter to them what men think of it, calling their eyeliner man-slaying. And it’s what all the women I pointed to above are doing, taking a bit of that industry for themselves. It’s a slow, multi-pronged process, but it’s a big problem to tackle.

I am for serious thinking about picking up a bar to supplement my other shampoo c’:

just go out to a freshly-laid road and stick your head in it, you butt

    Choco: omg
    Choco: at least they're honest
    Choco: "Effective anti-dandruff shampoo bar that smells like tar. Cade oil gives Soak and Float its distinctive smell of freshly made tar. Cade oil works against the microbes that cause dandruff and let’s face it, you’d rather smell of tar than have flaked skin all over the shoulders of your cool black outfit, wouldn’t you? "
    Ashkatom: ...
    Ashkatom: well
    Ashkatom: yes :(
    Ashkatom: *has been having dandruff problems lately*
    Choco: pets
    Choco: the solution is tar
    Ashkatom: just slather some goddamn tar in your hair, you flaky-scalped loser
you are super cute and your skin is flawless <3

<3 <3 <3

My skin’s actually been terrible lately since I haven’t been taking my meds, but I used a primer under my foundation today for the first time and holy crap, does it make a difference. Also, my truly egregious pimples are hidden under my fringe :3
