Sunday Funday Is a Thick B*tch, Needs Tempo

Hey friends! These weeks really just kinda…fly by! It was just last Saturday and now it’s this Saturday and I don’t have anything tangible to prove that I was useful in the past week. But like, usefulness is based in capitalism, and really who do I need to be useful for? Honestly, who knows, but I do wish time would slow down and I got more done each day. C’est la vie though, you know???

  1. So many relatable comments on that Cosmo post, especially #9. I honestly look back now and think Wow, so many signs yet I didn’t know I was gay until later.

  2. Ohh reason 14 on that Cosmo article is very relatable–I just wanted to be the bestest ally ever and hang out will all the queer kids for normal straight reasons

    • Concur. So many sweet gems throughout. And I really enjoy thinking of Twilight as a “lesbian classic”.

  3. “Catherine Hardwicke, director of lesbian classic Twilight, will be directing a new “lesbian viking film”.”

    Needs to include the line, “featuring well-known gay, Kristen Stewart.”
