“I enjoy being indoors. I enjoy laying on couches, snacking, and reading (watching TV). Summer sucks because it is the only season when, if I want to do this in the middle of a gorgeous day, people (my children) look at me like I’m a disgusting person. Well, guess what? It’s 90 degrees out there, it’s 68 degrees in here, and this episode of The Bachelorette isn’t going to watch itself.”— Adam Scott, on why he hates summer (via rfswanson)
“There was a very touching moment between them on Wednesday; Martin had arrived on set several hours after Benedict, and when Benedict spotted him he went straight up to Martin who was standing by the monitors and gave him a huge hug. It was lovely to see, especially as they continued to talk, Benedict standing in the road and Martin on the pavement (but still managing to be the same height incidentally), Benedict arranged the front of Martin’s shirt for him as he talked.”—
I worked at a Southern California psychiatric facility where I had hands-on experience taking care of victims of traumas. I worked with veterans, rape and domestic abuse victims, and others who were victimized by violence.
I’ve personally witnessed triggers in several different people. I’ve seen hysterical crying, vomiting, sweating, panting, and people have flashbacks of traumatic experiences. You know what the doctor’s advice to them was? To stay away from things that cause triggers in order to protect themselves.
If you’re honestly triggered by the the things that you said you were triggered by, then you’ve got a real problem that warrant immediate help. The first thing to do would be to log off and see to it that you’ll be taken care of. It’s unhealthy and even dangerous to keep exposing yourselves to things that trigger you.
A lot of you claim to be triggered by mere mentions of certain subject matters, yet go on to your blogs and repeatedly post about them. If you’re repeatedly mentioning the things that trigger you, then I’m not surprised when other people don’t take you seriously.
Triggers are real, but they’re completely different from things that you simply dislike or are bothered by. I’m not surprised when people say that they have a hard time believing the trigger warnings tag. Just track it for 15 minutes and you’ll find a bunch of people pretending to have legitimate medical problems; it trivializes the very real, very painful, very dangerous triggering episodes that trauma victims must live with and need professional help for.
“Cakes have gotten a bad rap. People equate virtue with turning down dessert. There is always one person at the table who holds up her hand when I serve the cake. ‘No, really, I couldn’t’ she says, and then gives her flat stomach a conspiratorial little pat. Everyone who is pressing a fork into that first tender layer looks at the person who declined the plate, and they all think, ‘That person is better than I am. That person has discipline.’ But that isn’t a person with discipline; that is a person who has completely lost touch with joy. A slice of cake never made anybody fat. You don’t eat the whole cake. You don’t eat a cake every day of your life. You take the cake when it is offered because the cake is delicious. You have a slice of cake and what it reminds you of is someplace that’s safe, uncomplicated, without stress. A cake is a party, a birthday, a wedding. A cake is what’s served on the happiest days of your life”—Jeanne Ray (Eat Cake)
“Now Moffat discloses that, not only had the third series been long planned, but some parts of it - crucially involving portions showing how Sherlock survived his seeming suicidal death leap - have already been shot. “We’ve worked out how Sherlock survives, and actually shot part of what really happened,” said Moffat. ”—
