i have no reason for the title of this blog post except that, obviously, i grew up with and love slavic mythology and, also obviously, chernobog is my favourite because ~~ 🖤
and i guess it's fitting, the black god/god of darkness because we all know my ~aesthetic, right?
right. more on that a lil later.
what i actually wanted to talk about here is to reflect on my mental health and the relationship to my writing. may is mental health awareness month and i don't really talk about m
i posted this on twitter already but i know some of you don't follow me there and my account is set to private so...
two days ago, two earthquakes hit central croatia resulting in extensive damage in the towns of petrinja, sisak, glina and the villages around them. yesterday, an even bigger earthquake (6.3 magnitude) hit the same area. the entire city centre of petrinja is ruined with numerous collapsed buildings, it's the same in sisak and glina (in which 90% houses got destroyed), with h
you may have noticed that i ...posted a lot of book reviews and book recs.
at some point during the game (starting with round 2 i think) somehow decided to play almost the entirety of battleship by posting recs (book + fic recs) for hits and book reviews for sinks because i'm extra like that
so here's a comprehensive list of books i rec'd/reviewed if anyone is interested in my super mega excellent taste in books because it's spectacular and you should all read all of these. i marked m
the scoundrel pirate grumpy cat embarked on her quest -- modding the forums. it was a hard and valiantly fought mission, some backstabbing may have happened, but finally, she triumphed.
this is her story.
on modding: 😂 i'm modding and rereading some of the posts i made during battleship and just ,,, i don't remember some of them
on counting: fucking hell i also don't know how to count because i posted in the stranger things fandom topic that i love all four of them while talking
due to a couple of conversations i've had recently (mostly with deni and shreya but also others...) i've come to realise that all my fucked up characters are just versions of me at various points in my life (and those various points tend to mix between themselves so lines are very blurry and basically non existent at times). back when i first started writing i shied away from acknowledging that particular fact because i remember way back when how self-inserts were generally frowned upon.
heh. for my last blog post of the year, i'm going with something that's not about my hot mess-edness/being a total disaster/chaotic bisexual lol
it's about one of my absolute favourite characters from the hp series - narcissa black. in my totally unbiased opinion, jkr definitely gave her too few moments in the books but! i still managed to fall in love with her. a lot.
first of all, she would do anything for her family. literally anything (and she admits it freely). that includes d
huh. the title of this blog entry is ominously reminiscent of bad habits
i have a longstanding tradition of making increasingly bad decisions. it usually happens when i'm feeling particularly...dark. there are times when that's almost the default instead of an exception. and yet, even after i've done the thing, i don't actually feel all that bad about it.
i do, a little bit, but then i get sucked into my own mental image of what i've done and the various ways in which it made me feel
one thing that's stayed with me ever since i was a kid was sports and working out. not for the sake of the workout, but for the sake of feeling in control of my body and the endorphins that i would get after i pushed myself hard.
i was on a swim team for eight years, i did karate, i did horseback riding, played handball, ran for the sake of, again, pushing myself (there weren't track teams and such things at my school. we didn't even have a proper gym or proper outdoor fields (all of them w
i touched upon this yesterday in a tweet which was this:
it's true that i use writing as an outlet for some of the things that are in my head, but more often than not, it doesn't make me feel better, it makes me feel worse because i immerse myself in these things, bad feelings and dark thoughts, when i write about them and it's basically a vicious cycle.
it would maybe be better if i could write fluffy, happy things, but i've found myself incapable of doing that.
idk if it means
my response to the ML/prefect team on twitter about LGBTQ+ themed good news seemed to be quite popular and/or relatable so i thought, with pride month coming up, i'd write a little bit about it.
this is the first pride month that i won't just be an ally.
and i love it.
the tweet in question:
maybe some people thought i was joking but i really wasn't
even though i live in croatia, where being a part of the LGBTQ+ community can be quite difficult, i still consider this
since may is mental health awareness month i thought i'd finally open up about my own mental health(?). fyi, i was never officially diagnosed with...anything. and i won't self-diagnose.
i started writing this blog entry and wrote...idk maybe 200 words of my story and then i deleted everything because i couldn't post it. i guess it's still too personal and painful for me. so i'll just write some really tiny bits that i feel fine with posting.
at one point in my life, i talked to a psych
