There are three things that the Harry Potter fandom seems to universally agree upon:
1. Umbridge is awful
2. Maggie Smith is a perfect Professor McGonagall
3. Everyone should be at least slightly bothered by DID YOU PUT YOUR NAME IN THE GOBLET OF FIRE?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!!
So some background on why I’m so upset right now.
I got in a car accident on Wednesday. No one was hurt but I did a number on my car and the car I hit. I fucked up due to weather conditions, but ultimately I was at fault. I took responsibility for what happened and did everything I could. I understand that this means paying my insurance deductible, higher monthly rates, and the ticket. But now they’re saying the car might be a write-off and I just can’t deal with that. The car is driveable. How can it be a write-off if it still runs safely?!
I just want to keep my car. And part of me regrets ever getting one to begin with.
I’m angry at the insurance company for saying they’d waive the deductible and then going back on it as a miscommunication. I’m angry at almost every person I’ve spoken to explaining this, from the police officer to the witnesses to the insurance adjuster, for making it seem like I’m trying to get away with something. I’m not trying to get away with anything. I fucked up. This was my fault. I was in the wrong, the other driver was in the right. I have never said anything to the contrary.
But mostly I’m angry at myself. I hate myself right now. I was finally in a place where I was able to support myself and my lifestyle, just barely, and now I have fucked everything up. And people keep telling me it’s going to be OK, but it’s NOT ok. My car might be gone, I owe all this money, this is all on my record, my insurance is going up, and I’m now absolutely petrified at all times when I’m in a vehicle, whether I’m driving or not.
It’s not going to be ok. Everything is not alright.
when white boys make fun of girls getting drunk im kinda just like but have you seen white boys wasted. they start rapping and whispering into girls necks and start yelling racist shit to people on the street. when girls get wasted it just means we’re all super nice to each other in the bathroom and dance to beyonce
I’ve talked about drunk girls in the bathroom before. Drunk girls in the bathroom are incredible.
I had a crap day.
And I feel incredibly shaken, scared, and uneasy.
But I watched some Parks and Recreation and it made me feel so much better. In the words of Leslie Knope, “I love my job, and I love my friends.”
It’s all going to be ok.
"I read that recommendation and I thought ‘Mel Blewitt would not recommend someone unless they were awesome.’"
One of the management team from ResLife who I always thought didn’t really like me just said that to me.
She’s pretty great, so even though my old student totally flopped in his interview I feel pretty validated.
Way past my bedtime.
Worth it though, to spend time with some amazing people who I missed even though we all live within a 3km radius. We need to make time for one another more often.
