bex's brain: the highlights

beyond the rain

62 views

Hello! 

So people may have noticed I don't really blog here much (or anywhere, idk why I felt that I needed to be location specific...whatever bex) 
there's no 'reason' other than, my life is boring and I don't have much to say.
I saw a post on tumblr recently where this girl essentially listed the highlights of her thoughts throughout the day. I wanna do that. 
There's no want or need for this, but I feel like people only know me from my work on TDA. I actually hope that you do because my graphics are a lot better than my actual writing (and i'm in a huge graphics rut right now, so that speaks volumes.) This won't be a daily thing, because I assume a lot of my thoughts are the same, and my life isn't that exciting - not enough for my to blog about my brain DAILY. Maybe this will be a monthly thing....maybe we'll never speak of this again. We'll see how it goes! 

bex's brain 13th April, the highlights: 

  • omg remember that girl who started crying two years ago and you were the only one around to cheer her up? Why were you the only one there???? why???? why were you trusted with someone who CRIES? It's weird because I still see her now, and we're just like awkward acquaintances. Oh lord why was I there....I SHOULD NEVER BE LEFT WITH CRYING PEOPLE. ESPECIALLY WHEN I DON'T KNOW THEM! I JUST MAKE JOKES. TERRIBLE JOKES. My social skills are roughly about Chandler Bing & Rosa Diaz level. Ugh god that girl probably hates me. I don't care, but she should hate me. She should also judge herself for allowing me to see her cry bc people should be able to tell just by looking at me that i'm not equipped for this level of social interaction! 
  • you know now that i think about it, every fic i've written so far in the past 18 months....snape has seen some action???? i dont even plan it, one minute he's being snarky, next minute he's sleeping with someone???? Clara fancied him as a kid, Eleanor's well yknow we all know what Eleanor's doing, Hermione and Snape are like meant to be together obviously - i just???? the weirdest thing is - I don't find him the least bit attractive. Would we chill and be sassy? Absolutely. Would I date him? gooD LORD NO 
  • i'm betraying my otp. I'm a terrible person who's betraying her otp. I'm writing a snape x oc. forgive me snamione FOR I HAVE SINNED
  • OHHHHH I KNOW WHY I KEEP GIVING SNAPE LOVE INTERESTS. To make up for the fact that I keep killing him in all my fics. Literally. every. single. fic. With all the women he's getting I'm pretty sure he wouldn't mind. 
  • wow stood up too fast. you know i haven't felt this in FOREVER - idk why people get het up about this stuff, i didn't actually mind that
  • okay i googled the whole standing up too fast thing....this is why people freak out about it. it was a one off, so it's all good! 
  • i really need to finish my script. or maybe i shouldn't because my writing is horrific 
  • well okay then i need to stop writing ff til my script is done idc how hard it is bex stop arguing with urself and do it 
  • i can't believe i thought i could do proper crosswords that don't have the answers, just impossible hints. I AM NOT A RAVENCLAW I REPEAT, I AM NOT A RAVENCLAW
  • well actually i'm a slytherclaw, but i have the ravenclaw creativity rather than their ability to solve riddles. If i had to solve a riddle to get in my common room i'd be sleeping outside. voluntarily. like i'm not here to make myself look an idiot, i already do it subconsciously 
  • this episode of Brooklyn nine-nine is a masterpiece i'm not ready for the fact that i'm almost caught up [here's a visual++]
  • speaking of the nine-nine this show has really made me aware of my flaws because i'm so jake, and i love him to death but omg there's times when he can be annoying as heck. However as I said, I am jake, so I'm aware of my flaws....but changing them sounds like it involves a lot of effort and i'm not about that 
  • it's been a while since easter and my sister hasn't even touched her easter egg. i'm gonna give her two more days, then it's mine. 
  • i want some flares so bad. like high waisted flares, if this summer's good i'd wear them ALL THE TIME. 
  • i need to save up money for those flares 
  • it's 3am why am i still thinking about my sister's easter egg and those flares?????? 

 

 

Reading all these seems perfectly normal to me because....well they're from my head. Maybe I've just revealed to the world that I'm slightly less sane than we all thought? Let me know if I should be carted off in a straight jacket? Otherwise I hope you enjoyed getting a teensy little snippet of the life of bex!

as someone who has days where I literally can't stand up without immediately crouching because dizzy: mm, yes, that is why people get het up about it. It's suuuuper annoying. Really cool to observe what your body is doing though? Like, my audio processing goes, as does my ability to follow basic reasoning (e.g. "you're dizzy, why don't you crouch so you don't fall down" mm no how about I cling to the top of my dresser instead). Sometimes I get limb spasms! It's an exciting time. 

also, i am too a jake and hoo boy my adhd son is a mess.

Hahahaa! I loved this blog and I think you're wonderful and adorable. I loved the bit about poor Severus, actually lol'd in real life at that part. And I totally feel you about crosswords, I can never figure out how to solve real ones, the hints are always super obscure. And after five or six years of working retail, I honestly still do not know how to talk to, or react to crying/upset people, so you're not the only one.

This is an interesting idea for a blog, and I found the bit about not blogging because your life is boring to be relatable. I feel the same way—but I think most of us have "boring" lives where we essentially do similar things every day.

That's insane! When I was an extremely anxious child I found myself a lot dizzier. Nowadays being dizzy and totally losing balance happens so rarely. Props to you for putting up with it!

Aw, haha, thank you! Honestly with the crosswords I have, I end up getting 60% through it and being like, nope my vocabulary is too limited for this. Also not being able to deal with people is why I never want to work in retail. My family are like 'but it might be good for you' honestly I'm the worst with people so that's possibly the worst idea ever.

^yay for boring lives! I should probably start doing more interesting stuff but I'm just like [looks at bed] nah, I'm good.

It's not all bad. I'm not saying I haven't gotten better at it, it's definitely helped me grow as a person. Some days are better than others and some days are just terrible, but that's normal, right?
