I’m currently reading My Dark Vanessa and Royal We.
Have finished the other four. I really like all these books for really different reasons. If you’re on the fence, maybe try them out! I purchased My Dark Vanessa (audiobook) and Wow, No Thank You (kindle book) and the rest were library guys.
“And that’s one of the things about this moment […] is basically people saying, I want things to be the way they were. I want to live. I want to not be sick. I want to not have to worry about getting somebody else sick. I want to go to a bar. But really, what occurs to me is, why?”
The funny thing is, in most situations that I can think of, there usually is in fact one thing you could do that is the single most important thing. It also often happens to be, ‘the thing that is really hard’, or ‘the thing that makes you cringe most at the thought of having to do it.’ So, naturally, we come up with all kinds of excuses for ourselves about why, in fact, there are many important things to consider, so we’re going to go work on those other things which aren’t so spiky and threatening. We avoid doing the most important thing, and instead do all of the other things in order to make ourselves feel better. But the most important thing never gets done, and the problem persists. Goal != accomplished.
I tend to procrastinate with tasks and try to think of cutesy things to circumvent the problem instead of attack it head on.
“I started the beginning of last year with no job. And I was calling my agent and just being like—I had gotten good reviews in stuff—and I was like, ‘What the fuck? I thought this was a pretty good year, and I’m fucking starting the year like I’ve just done a pile of trash.’ ” And what his agents said was: You’re not really on the list. That mythical list of A-list actors considered for A-list parts. Not necessarily because he wasn’t wanted. But because, they told him: “Everyone thinks you don’t want to do any of this stuff.”
But what Pattinson was realizing was: Actually, he did. He wanted more security, less doubt. “Just something which you could kind of rely on a little bit more,” he says, sighing. “The problem which I was finding was, however much I loved the movies I was doing, no one sees them. And so it’s kind of this frightening thing, ’cause I don’t know how viable this is for a career.… I don’t know how many people there actually are in the industry who are willing to back you without any commercial viability whatsoever.”

I’m so sick of this shit. Two gastations can’t even be on the same block without some walnut shipping them, while I can’t find a single fic for dennys/applebees with dennys bottoming.
you’re literally out of your mind if you think Dennys isnt a top
I wish the 2012 apocalypse actually happened
