Does anyone else have a Toast Resolution? Something that they're going to work on or focus on because of this community? Maybe it made you feel more brave, or more accepted than you realized?
For me... I'm going to write! It's been a desire of mine my entire life but I've always felt inadequate. I've always worried that there are too many people with my goal to make any kind of impact, or to even achieve anything. And it feels like a silly, throw-away goal. But I don't care! It's something I enjoy doing! It brings me a lot of joy and I think now, more than ever, that's really all that matters. The Toast posted something of mine (silly Game of Thrones fan theories) which was awesome, even though it wasn't anything long-form. Some lovely commenters (OK maybe just one or two) asked me if I was a writer based on some super insane dreams I shared, and told me I should pursue it. I just love that this community exists, even if it won't exist in the same fashion for much longer. You all make me feel like I matter and that we are all worth listening to!
their families reeled when they announced it, but they came around so quickly you would not believe. all it took was.... are you ready for this? all it took was them seeing how HAPPY they made each other, and suddenly they were all about it.
(meanwhile i am dating a guy 4 years my junior and like, he was in high school at the height of emo/screamo and so that's sort of his thing while i am like "oh my god?? no?? it's all about alternative rock and alt-metal??" and then i remember that if that, and the fact that he appreciated shit like pokemon and harry potter when he was appropriately aged, UNLIKE ME WHO WAS JUST A WEIRD TEENAGER, is our biggest issue, we are doing OK.)
I just need to chill for fear of being Too Mom at him. like SWEETIE YOU WERE SO GOOD LOOK AT THESE PICTURES I TOOK AW MY GOSH EVERYONE LOOK AT HIM GO! ISN'T HE THE BEST??
Although I do that sometimes when he's just standing around, so maybe he's used to it.
Yeah it really dragged. I was surprised when there wasn't another round of Fitz being caught, tortured, and saved by a new group of people he'd eventually leave. Overall though I'm most upset about Burrich and Molly. Totally uncalled for. What a waste of two characters.
(thanks. it's the first time he'll be playing live with this band and the first time i've seen him perform. he is the most down-to-earth, chill, soft-spoken guy you will ever meet who moonlights as a headbanging double-bass-pedal-shattering metal drummer. i'm really excited to see him play!)
Where do I stand? Should I casually be in the back by the bar? Would it be corny if I was in front cheering? Or is it worse if I'm NOT in front cheering? Am I in charge of getting him beer/water throughout his set?? What do I wear?! How do I act?!?!?
