Hey! We saw your comment on our nyotaimori post and just wanted to check in and see if our portrayal of the act made you uncomfortable (since it was unclear from your tone). We tried to make it clear that nyotaimori is in no way a common Japanese practice and should not be regarded as 'Japanese culture' although it originated in Japan. If you have any other comments regarding the post, we'd love to hear them. Thanks!
hahaha, no i wasn’t uncomfortable. i’ve heard of much stranger things happening here. i appreciated the way it was posted. my response was directed at the “sensationalized by Western culture as a japanese ‘food culture,’” because, like you mentioned, it’s underground and not very common. I mean, maid cafes are more common, I’m to believe. My tone was mostly, “wow….that’s interesting.” Sorry it didn’t come across correctly
i have a massive bucket list on my facebook. it helps to see concretely what i want to do (or do again), and for my friends to be able to see it and help me make plans. also, i’m getting less homework, but even if i were getting more, my time is running out, so i’d much rather work through that list than worry too much about sleep or grades :P
so make a bucket list and work your way through it. or, make a bucket list for the whole semester (add to it during the semester, and look up random things you’ve never considered doing.)
bangarang-bro replied to your post: you liked my Once Upon a Time post. does this mean you also watch? or were you just liking it to like it? ideaswithoutcauses Oh no I love Once Upon a Time. I was waiting for you to get to the Hatter episode haha. I kept my mouth shut because Jefferson is probably my favourite character and didnt want to spoil anything for you Awesome! Im all up to date and anxiously awaiting the new season. Once Upon a Time is a show that keeps getting better. Also if you like Jefferson you definitely need to keep watching
i need him to show up again.
he was really attractive….and he was a good Hatter.
i mean, lewis carroll didn’t give the hatter a story, or much personality other than he’s mad, but i still enjoy when he’s more of a character.
but if they’re going to have a Hatter episode, they’d better have an Alice episode, and episodes for the other characters (the Queen, the Cat, the Rabbit, etc.)

I didn’t want this account connected to my other one, but in case you were wondering, its all the same person. I kept meaning to let you know during the whole CIEE conversation but I kept answering on the bangarang account and then just forgot. oops August 25. A little less than 2 months.
and then you’re in copenhagen for the spring? when do you come back to the states after all that?

thank you!!! i actually truly enjoyed it. they have to show more of that later in the show. my friend and i chatted for about an hour theorizing over the hatter and the queen of hearts and all that. i’m going to watch the next few episodes tonight.

hahaha, oh, no problem. when do you leave the states?
i don’t have a problem with this. i used to feel lonely as a result, but after 21 years of this, i’ve figured out how see it positively. i’m still working on how i feel about myself, but at least now i truly enjoy my own company (and of course that of my friends.) i like being single, even though i have nothing with which to compare.
but, i want to be with someone. i want to be in a relationship that fails. i want to make a mistake, so i can start learning how to be with someone else.
i only learn by fucking up. i have to run headfirst into the wall many times before i find the door, but when i do finally find it,
1) i’ll never forget where it is,
and 2) i’ll know very well how it feels to hit the wall
If you're a feminist who understands the (apparently not) radical concept that women can have penises and men can have vaginas (and that there are people with either or both of those who may very well identify as neither a man nor a woman), would you mind reblogging this? I could really use a little faith in humanity being restored right about now.
“I think that a sixteen-year-old who has had comprehensive sex education and who’s been taught to have a healthy perspective on the emotional and physical responsibilities that come with sex is a lot more prepared for a sexual relationship than a twenty-one-year-old who has known only shame-based abstinence-only education and virginity pledges.”—
