Casually scrolling through the tumblrs and my teacher appears! <3
Dawn is so talented and such a lovely person!!
So I got in my package from DFTBA Records… I think I’m in love.
I don’t know who or what can help me so I’m putting this out to you in hopes of somehow getting a response from somewhere.
I don’t know how to take action in my life. I know this is hardly a unique problem, but it is very present and damaging in different ways.
I have high goals, high expectations of myself, dreams and passions I feel a demanding urge to follow, but I can’t make myself take even the smallest of steps towards accomplishing anything of value to me.
I know I am smart and kind and have some talent, and I feel if I could bring myself to really work at something I could be successful. Even if that isn’t what is in store for me, I need to know that I gave it my all, that I tried my best.
I am scared. I can’t remember how to put one foot in front of the other.
Please send me courage, strength, belief, and determination, in whatever forms you please.
I know that ultimately my life is my responsibility, and I will continue to attempt to overcome this on my own, but any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
Finally got my Awesomesaurus picture from the P4A! I love it so much!!! :)
I don’t think Nerdfighteria promotes social awkwardness, I think it promotes self-acceptance.
My fundamental disagreement with Tomska is that he thinks social awkwardness is a flaw that needs to be fixed. Social awkwardness is a pretty broad term, but generally when people say that they are talking about introversion/ social anxiety/ and just not fitting in (being weird).
Our society tells us that we should change ourselves to fit into this mold of what it seen as acceptable- not being too weird, being talkative, being totally at ease in social situations. I have spent more than 20 years trying desperately to be less socially awkward, or to get rid of it completely, and it has lessened but it will always be a big part of who I am- that’s just the way my brain works for whatever reason. Only recently, finding things like Nerdfighteria, have I come to see that the way I am is OK, that it is just a different way of being- that realization made me cry. I could have spared myself a lot of anger and frustration and self-hatred if someone had taught me this sooner.
If this comes at the cost of making some people “arrogant” about being this way, I think it is far outweighed by the self-confidence and self-love it promotes to those who really need it.
I love that John and Hank can do that for people, and the fact that some people see that as something wrong with Nerdfighteria upsets me a great deal. I think it is one of the BEST things about it.
I was supposed to be productive today but then I found out that this was happening. I didn’t watch it in its entirety but these are my favorite screenshots from the 6 or so hours I saw.
