Well… the rains gotta stop somewhere

Oh my god, someone has footage of it! I remember one time my dad, lil brother, and I were leaving a Ryan’s. We were waiting for a chance to hop onto the road and in the distance we just saw everything turn grey. We saw it come closer and closer and come to find out it was rain!

It was just a wall of rain – the end of the rain, really. I’ve never seen it again, but it’s so cool to see footage of the edge of rain!

This is such a frequent occurrence in South Florida that I didn’t think it was weird until after I left.

God I really wish carrying stuffed animals around with you was socially acceptable

I don’t mean to take over a post, but I actually did a project on this for my sociology of deviance class in college!

I carried a large stuffed rabbit whenever I went in public for about a week to observe the reaction of others. The point of the project was to do something harmless yet unusual to see if the action would be considered deviant, in which case someone had to try to correct or shame the behavior.

Long story short, nobody tried to correct my behavior. I was asked about it casually, had a few lingering stares thrown my way and when I was with my boyfriend, shop employees would direct questions to him instead of me. However, nobody refused to assist me when I was alone in a store, nobody said anything about the rabbit besides “oh, thats a cute bunny!” and I attended college classes without even a teacher questioning it.

In conclusion, it is socially acceptable to carry a stuffed animal, its just not a societal norm. ^^

DOING IT

My friend gave me a stuffed monkey plushy when I was struggling with uni, and I took him everywhere for like four years, usually velcrod to my backpack. No one said a damn thing, except my renaissance professor who saw it one day in the hallway and cracked the fuck up because I had a literal monkey on my back and he just looked at me like, “oh god, me too”. I used to leave him on desks during classes and exams (the monkey, not my prof). It was my reminder that someone cared if I was coping. But more than that it was soothing to have something to fidget with that wasn’t a pen. I used to ping those fucking things across the room I was so agitated. Harder to hurt people with a projectile stuffed monkey.

I got what I thought was a normal screen cleaning kit for my computer while I was in college. Much to my delight, instead of a little washcloth or whatever, the kit came with a tiny stuffed pig. 

So I carried this pig in my backpack all through college, periodically taking it out, spraying my screen, and using the pig to wipe it off. 

Now, I kept the pig in the side pocket of my bag where he was completely visible.

Then one day in screenwriting class I pulled him out to wipe my screen. 

One of the guys sitting next to me looked appalled. “You’re wiping it off with your little stuffed animal??” 

I explained what the pig was. 

Turns out, the guy had noticed it and just thought it was adorable I carried a stuffed animal with me every day. He’d never mentioned it before. 

Honestly, people do not care, and will not say anything. No matter the reason for your little stuffed animal friend. 

And if you’re still really nervous about it keep a stuffed animal keychain on your bag. I have a cute little frog that stays on my backpack so when work gets stressful I can squeeze it.

For my anxious followers.

I love this so much. It reminds me that people can just be accepting, and if they aren’t – it’s by their choice. It isn’t a default.

I’ve seen people in college wearing pjs and art students always carry weird atuff. I saw a person in a suit by the math building holding what looked like a keychain with three if those fuzzy ball things in different colours and no one said a word. Bring your plushies and friends with you! Heck, if you have an office job you can bring a friend with you and keep them on your desk and if you work retail you can find a friend on a keychain and keep them on your belt, no one will care and you’re little friend can help you feel better!

Don’t let society bully you into changing. Inagead, lets change society into being accepting.

Back before I got sick, one of the supervisors (middle aged white guy) at my job at the time (call center) and I talked about Lovecraft…so one day he brought in his stuffed Cthulhu and Nyarlathotep in to work. I posed Nyarlathotep in my seat, with my headset on, and took a picture (which I can’t find), and also the one below…then I worked all day cuddling my supervisor’s plushy evils. In business attire. 

I have a tentakitty at my desk. I talk to my tentakitty as a part of Rubber Duck Debugging. And kitties are cute.

Reposting for evidence.

really love imagining a bunch a kids and teens on their pokemon journeys staying the night on the couches and floors in the lobbies of pokemon centers, having long talks about their experiences and feelings sharing funny and scary stories and myths about legendaries and trading items and sharing TMs along with sugary snacks and pokedex chargers all while their pokemon are out of their pokeballs and all bundled up in blankets sleeping soundly next to their trainers while they stare up at the stars shining through the glass ceiling over their heads

#this is what pokemon’s all about

#this is…so nice

I just…really like this idea man. So I drew a thing.

I’m at 5 what about you?

Gonna show this to my goddam mother because she calls me a picker eater but I only scored a 3.

Also 3. Two for “religious reasons” (I’m an atheist, but I figure I’m still entitled to having a group of creatures I don’t eat for no real logical reason), one due to allergies.

4 or 5, depending on if you count eggs (I don’t eat them by themselves).

Can’t vote because you have to work? Check the laws in your state. Many states DO have laws that require employers to let you vote.

Can’t vote because you don’t have transportation? Lyft is currently offering rides free or at 50% off to anyone who needs to get to the polls. Uber is offering $10 off. Even many bike- and scooter-share companies are offering deals right now, and some cities (including Los Angeles, Houston, Dallas, and Tampa) are making public transit free on voting day. And, chances are, you have friends who also need to vote, so see if you can carpool.

Not sure what kind of ID, if any, you need to bring? Check the laws in your state.

Not sure where to vote? Vote.org has an easy tool to help you find your nearest polling location.

Not sure if you’re even registered? Vote.org has a tool for that, too.

Worried you don’t know enough to vote? Vote.org will show you everything on your local ballot. Several organizations also have voting guides which will give you more in-depth information. Make sure you choose an organization you trust. I recommend starting with the website for your state’s ACLU or Planned Parenthood.

Don’t think there’s any point of voting in your Red State? Check out this horrifying map of how many people didn’t vote in the 2016 election. There are more registered Democrats than Republicans, but Republicans vote more. Yes, there’s a lot stacked against Democrats, but that doesn’t mean it’s impossible. Here are some examples of lifelong Republicans saying they voted Democrat.

Don’t like any of the candidates? My recommendation to you is to pick the least objectionable person you think can win. I would never tell you to vote against your conscience, but I do still think it’s important to make your choice with the understanding that it has consequences. Trump’s victory margin was smaller than total Stein votes in key swing states. As for write-ins, know that your write-in could be equivalent to a vote for the candidate you like least and be sure you’re comfortable with that before doing it.  

Reminders

  • Voting day is Tuesday, November 6, 2018. Hours vary by location, but the day does not.
  • Do not take pictures of your ballot.
  • Do not campaign at the polling place.
  • Make sure you have proper ID, if needed.
  • If you’re voting electronically, double, even triple-check every vote before submitting, even if you have an option to vote straight ticket. There have been cases where this doesn’t work as expected. If you can’t find your party candidate, make sure to check the next page as there have also been glitches (at least in my state) that push the Democratic candidate after the massive list of independent candidates.
  • If you’re voting on paper, check every side of every page to avoid missing any votes.
  • And most importantly, offer to take your friends, family, or co-workers with you to vote if they weren’t already planning to go.  

ELECTION DAY IS TODAY! GET OUT THERE AND VOTE VOTE VOTE!!!
