It’s nearly 1am
And instead of you know going to bed, I’m trying to write stupidly fluffy Corso and Fira fic
(Reasons why I should not be allowed to have the power that comes with being an adult)
To give you an example of ‘This is how crap my family is in regards to giving me opportunity to know about people who are related to me’
Some point last year someone knocked at the door. And I was the one to answer it, and someone was standing at the door.
I hadn’t been told anyone was coming over, so I was confused. They were confused. They thought it was the wrong house.
Then a few minutes later they were let in.
Turned out it was a cousin of mine who’d been called over to plaster the kitchen.
Have you ever looked back at your life and realized that you legitimately dealt with depression but tried to normalize it by assuming you were just lazy or antisocial?
shit! block it! report it!
I had a sort of gibberish handle and the hover over was a bunch of One Direction pics with ‘click this’ written on them. And yeah just seemed dodgy as hell

Yii. Well, you’re a student - studenting _is_ your work. So to speak. I assume your dad had good reasons, but that’s definitely going to make money an issue. I hope things get better soon.
Yes, but I do need something to cover the summer since there’s only so far my student finance payments can go
I think it was largely him getting fed up, but it hasn’t helped he did this without really having another job in place or it seems much of a plan
my sister is doing an essay for her finance course about bitcoin and her introduction is basically defining currency and equal payments.
so i told her to add alchemy’s first law of equivalent exchange. she just sent me the essay to look over it and
she fucking did.
RE: That ‘being taught languages’ post.
Throughout school at various points, they tried to teach French. And also at one point I went to some sort of kid’s holiday activity/school thing and did a French course there.
And well. I know various basic words like I can tell you colours, and some animals, some food/drink, some numbers (I think I can easily do 1-20), greetings/goodbyes and some other random words.
But like I don’t think I ever really remember being taught how to actually converse. Or at least not to an extent that I could talk to someone in a full conversation. Like I could probably get something like ‘I can’t speak French well’ out just about.
And like when I was in secondary school I remember ending up with at least three different ‘teachers’ for French. First one I remember doing a straight up French lessons in which you had to write stuff down and were meant to have vocab quizzes, second one was someone who was actually French, then the third one was someone who taught in France and one of her teaching exercises was writing out Bible verses, and an incident where we had to translate a passage written by one of her students and no one could do it because we’d never been exposed to French handwriting.
Which just led to a very confused Lucy because of these teachers all having different ways to teach, who now can say something about a blue pig but can’t actually use French as a skill.
That’s rough. :( Though it’s not your responsibility, of course. Even if it feels like it.
It’s largely money related. My mum got made redundant from her job last summer, then a few months ago my dad decided to put notice in with his work, and my brother and I aren’t working although I’m trying to find a part time job whilst I’m studying again.
And just I wish I could do something to help with the money problems but I can’t. And I can’t move out which I feel could help.
And there’s also stuff to do with the state of the house, yet again something I can’t help with.
