it super is just a matter of time and it’s terrifying. she probably won’t take you to a dark, abandoned building with a friend the second time you meet her. I said probably.
God, you take your friend who recently moved to town and who hasn’t yet developed a support network to a dark, abandoned building ONCE and she brings it up literally every time you suggest yourself to be the trustworthy sort who doesn’t have literal skeletons in your closet
i’m not afraid of you anymore. i know how to get you to leave me alone: create a fortress of hamburgers, cream cheese dips, and dogs.
Won’t the dogs eat the hamburgers
Is it wrong that i read the last line in the voice of Hannibal Lecter? Which completely destroys your argument that you aren’t a creepy person trying to kill your friends?
"Won’t the dogs eat the hamburgers, Clarice?"
Let me tell you this: if you meet a loner, no matter what they tell you, it’s not because they enjoy solitude. It’s because they have tried to blend into the world before, and people continue to disappoint them.

The past few months have been a master class in Spoon Theory. Hoping that I’ll feel better or get more spoons soon.

I animated a little shimmy during a livestream tonight! Check it out.
I’m not gonna lie, I’m really happy with those nipple tassels.
Also, if you think this is fun, please support me! I want to keep these livestreams archived, and allow everyone to view the archive without a livestream account, as well as make more time for fun little things like this, and donations will help me do all of those things! :)

All of these Leslies are me. In fact, all of these Leslies have been me for the past two months, maybe longer. I am, as always, terribly behind in everything that I need to do for the book — except now, it’s about promotion and it’s much more urgent as the book is out in one week in the UK and two weeks in the US. And I’ll be at San Diego Comic Con in about five days and should really do my best to connect with as many Joss fans as I can.
I basically have two dueling Leslies on my shoulder — maybe not dueling, more like one is freaking out on a particular theme and the other one keeps yelling at me, reminding me that I’m in this situation due to my own stupidity. Which is true. Mostly true — as some of it is due to stupid decisions that I’ve made and the rest is due to my vicious cycle of exhaustion and anxiety, which leads to no productivity, which leads to more anxiety, which takes such a toll on my body that I can barely do anything aside from lay on the couch and try not to cry.
I’m going to make today’s Leslie Knope Life Coach Lesson be both a matter-of-fact come-to-Jesus (you’re in trouble because of your own stupidity) and a reminder that even the most awesome, productive ladies have breakdowns of different kinds. That doesn’t doesn’t mean we’re all broken permanently or unable to get things done in the long run — just that we have to get through that moment and gently move into a healthier and more productive headspace. We’ll all get there, just like Leslie Knope.
