wine tastes so bad. I’m convinced the whole world is in on an inside joke together trying to persuade me that wine tastes good to them. there’s no way any one can like the taste of it. it’s like bug spray. the whole frickin world pretends to like bug spray. I don’t understand why. stop the madness

wine is an acquired taste. if you don’t like it, acquire some taste

Anonymous asked: I don't really get the point in that trigger list. Some of it I get, but certainly not everything. I get that people are traumatized, but they can't be babied forever, in that case, they should stay off the internet, stay off the social world, and only read roald dahl. In any case, you should add Harry Potter to your list, because of Voldemort and his nazi/death eater regime.

booksfrommyshelf:

If you really don’t see the point in the trigger list, you don’t have to have anything to do with it. It isn’t about being babied, it’s about knowing about scenes that could possibly negatively impact someone in a huge way. If you’ve never been trigger or traumatised by anything, hooray for you, you just live a lovely life. For a lot of us however, certain scenes or certain subjects can make us very uncomfortable and unsafe, to the point of heightened mental illness, painful flashbacks, or severe self harm and suicide. You’re incredibly lucky if you don’t know how that feels. Also, I want to make my blog here safe enough for anybody to feel comfortable, and if you’re going to tell me that you don’t see the point and you think that people “can’t be babied forever” you can just go ahead and unfollow me now because I really don’t care for that attitude. My trigger list isn’t for people like you, it’s for people like myself, and like the friends that I have, and for all the people who have suffered and appreciate a bit of warning for things that might negatively impact them in some way. I have been triggered quite badly by some of the books on the list, and I know that others have been and can be, and if you’ve never been and if you’ve never suffered from anything, good for you, your life must be so lovely. And quite simply, if the list isn’t for you, you don’t need to concern yourself with it, and there’s certainly no need for you to tell me how pointless you think it is. I’ve had a lot of messages of support for the list and had a lot of people thank me for it.

Literature’s Most Unreliable Narrators

The multiple narrators of Mark Z. Danielewski’s novel present a trail of imaginary footnotes and conflicting information for us to sort through. Characters openly admit to their unreliability and mock us for trusting them. The tale isn’t just labyrinthine in content, but also in structure. Did you really expect to find a trustworthy source in a novel that looks like this?


EVERYONE SHOULD READ THIS BOOK. ITS CALLED HOUSE OF LEAVES. YOU WILL GO INSANE. I NEED EVERYONE TO UNDERSTAND MY INSANITY

The only thing that would make these secret room bookcases cooler is if you activate them by pulling out a special, secret book :)

Rubeus Remus Potter. You were named after the only two people at Hogwarts who seemed to give shit about me, because come on who else would I name you after? A verbally abusive dickbag who was in love with my mum and gave me shit all my life and someone who convinced a bunch of children that they needed to be soldiers? What kind of awful aspirations would that make you end up having? Come on son I’m not an idiot…
