I literally can’t anymore.
i found the real use for okcupid: practicing your second language during the summer
i just went last night and looked up people said “me gusta leer” and then send a bunch of them messages and i got 3 back this morning and they’re so nice!!
When I was 17, a 40-something married ref/co-worker came and sat down by me while I was scorekeeping a game.
He said something about how I looked cute. I felt awkward, but I said, “Thank you.”
“We should date,” he said.
“Ummmmmm. I’m underage…” I said. Which is not the reason I wouldn’t date him. But feeling completely weirded out, it’s what I said.
“Ha, ha, what? Am I making you uncomfortable?” he asked, laughing.
I think he was surprised when I said, “Yes.”
“Don’t be uncomfortable!” he insisted.
I sat there, still uncomfortable, trying to avoid him.
“Don’t tell your dad,” he said. My dad was his fellow ref, someone he’d been working with for years. Someone who was his boss in other leagues and who had the power to control his money flow.
That didn’t stop him.
He continued calling me cute whenever I wore shorts to work (“nice Daisy Dukes”) when it was 90 degrees outside and inside a gym with sweaty men running around.
I told my boss and they tried to keep him off my court, but every day I worked it was a battle. Was he working that night? Could Keith tell him to be on Will’s court as soon as he walked in? Would he listen? I had to hold up games sometime just to run and switch courts with Will or Gunnar. It was a nuisance, but even though it was clear I was uncomfortable, he kept choosing my court. He kept making comments.
Sometimes when I see him around, in town or at my dad’s sports-related functions, he tries to be nice and say hi to me. He doesn’t even get that I’m still completely wigged out by him.
And for some reason, I’ve never felt completely comfortable telling my dad.
gurlll marry him
dude, he plays muggle quidditch, is on a team for sexual advocacy about consent, goes to LGBTQA meetings, and lists luna lovegood as one of his inspirational people
i plucked up the courage and messaged him

i feel mixed up and confused lately and wouldnt life be so much easier if you knew what other people thought of you?
Sorry for the lack of updates lately. A broken computer charger + finals week has made things more difficult. But now I’m back, and as a reward for your patience, we have another way for you to win…
I thought I just posted this but Tumblr is being weird, so.
I work for a jigsaw puzzle company, Puzzle Warehouse, and I’m responsible to maintain our blog and some other social media stuff. This week we’re doing a giveaway for a free puzzle related to books and reading. All you have to do is take a short survey telling us about your favorite or least favorite classic book.
It’s really easy, the puzzle’s completely free, and you should do it! Some of the puzzles featured are up to $25 in value and feature the art of Shaun Tan or depictions of classic stories like Cinderella, Alice in Wonderland, or Treasure Island.
