do you ever think about the judges for the triwizard tournament trying to figure out who to kidnap for the second task
like they’re all just sitting in dumbledore’s office and karkaroff goes “well word on the street says that krum has a crush on that granger girl”
"damn," says dumbledore, "I wanted harry to rescue her. well, what about the delightful miss chang?"
"no," says bagman, "we’ve got her down for diggory"
"stop sinking my ships," says dumbledore
i feel like news anchors keep forgetting that “palestinian” and “hamas” are not interchangeable identities. the relationship between hamas and palestinian is complicated. the death of over 1,100 palestinians, who are mostly civilians, is not: it’s collective punishment; it’s disproportionate.
I’m up at 3:00am on a Tuesday morning, knowing I have to be up for work in 3 hours but unable to sleep. I have a parking ticket to pay, a speeding ticket to pay, an unpaid bill from school, and all of my utilities are past due. I haven’t been scheduled at work for the past few weeks and I know these bills are going to raze my bank account. To make myself feel less anxious and maybe get some sleep tonight, I grabbed my computer to at least pay my electric bill. But the site is down for maintenance, of course. Guess it’s no sleep for me tonight.
So I finally gave my law job an end date, which allows me to go on vacation for a week at the beach with my family. Far-Away Bae (who is not actually my Bae, it just rhymes) and I had discussed the idea of him coming to the shore for a few days. So, because I was excited to finally have dates in mind, I started looking at flights. They were super affordable, and his birthday is relatively soon, so I texted him dates and said I would be happy to get them as an early birthday gift.
His response was that he could probably make that work, and he would let me know if he could go. I was very happy. So I texted my guy friend about to gush.
His reponse? I came on too strong.
I hadn’t even asked ask him to analyze things for me (this is something I’ve done in the past, when I want to word things so as not to come off as needy or desperate or whatever.)
So, feeling paranoid about the situation where I had first felt pretty much just overjoyed and that’s it, I texted Far-Away Bae to apologize for coming on too strong, but I was really excited.
It made me feel better that I did that. Then friend said, “Gabby no”. Implying that I had once again fucked up.
I don’t know what to do. Now I’m feeling so anxious about the whole thing and a couple of hours ago, I was just excited. I hate men.
