♕ Doctor Who Meme: Two Quotes (1/2)
↳ The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things. The good things don’t necessarily soften the bad, but vice-versa, the bad things don’t necessarily spoil the good things and make them unimportant.
YOU DON’T OWE YOUR PARENTS ANYTHING
IT WAS THEIR CHOICE TO HAVE, KEEP AND RAISE YOU BUT IT WASN’T YOUR CHOICE TO BE THEIR CHILD
ANY EXPECTATIONS OR IDEALS THEY TRY AND ENFORCE ON YOU ARE BULLSHIT IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH THEM
THEY SHOULD ACCEPT THEIR CHILD AS THEY ARE NOT JUDGE THEM ON A MINOR DETAIL THAT DOESN’T AFFECT THEIR LIFE
DO NOT FEEL BAD IF YOU AREN’T THE PERFECT CHILD YOUR PARENTS THINK YOU SHOULD BE
Ok kiddos, I’ve got two small binders that are literally brand new. I ordered them from here and they got here yesterday and whaddya know they’re a smidge too small for me and I run the risk of ripping through them so I’ve decided to find them a new home.
I’ve worn each one once and have taken the tags off. One is in coffee and the other is in greys. The greys one has a small tear in the binder next to the hook and eye bit that I’ll be stitching up, but otherwise they are both brand new and in awesome shape.
So here’s the deal: I’m giving these to two people who can’t afford to get one on their own and that they will actually fit. I won’t contribute to people trying to bind too tight, so if they won’t fit you and I know it I won’t put you in the running. Sorry, but them’s the breaks. If you’re interested shoot me an ask and give me a general reason why you can’t get one on your own, why you want/need one [doesn’t have to be your life story, but if you want to tell me your life story feel free], your chest and bust size [I won’t share this with anyone and will only use it to make sure they’ll fit you. No point in sending you something that won’t work] which can be found by measuring around your ribs just under your bust and then measuring around your bust over your nipples with either a string and measuring that or with a tape measure. For reference, my chest size is 29/30 with empty and full lungs and my bust is 30/31 and these binders fit ridiculously snuggly to the point that it feels like I’m constantly about to hulk out.
Make sure not to measure it too tightly because the smaller the measurement the smaller the size you’ll need will be and in the end it’ll just get you something that will hurt or be uncomfortable and unwearable so you’re only hurting yourself in the end. Also include which color you’d prefer, if you care.
I’ll give you kids until….let’s say 10pm CST, May 30th to send in your applications and I’ll put them all on a list numbered 1 to however many submit in the order that I get them [after taking out anyone not compatible. I’m serious about this y’all. If it won’t fit you won’t get it] and use a random number generator to pick out the two winners. The first one generated is winner one and the second is winner two. First winner gets first pick of color and second winner gets the other one, and if the 1st doesn’t care second gets to pick, yada yada. I’ll get in contact with the winners via their ask box [so please no anon submissions unless you include a name and email or some way to get in contact with you] and get them shipped out either by the next day [Friday, May 31st] or that monday [June 3rd].
It’d be awesome if the winners could throw some money at me for the post [I’ll use those flat rate boxes so it’ll be like 5 bucks] via paypal, but if they can’t that’s cool too.
So to recap:
- Giving away 2 binders, one coffee and one grey, both size small to 2 winners chosen by a random number generator
- You have until Thursday, May 30th to put in an application/submission thingie
- The only real requirements are that you can’t afford one on your own/wouldn’t be able to get one sent to you because of family reasons or whatever and that it will actually fit you
- I’ll ship them anywhere as long as you can give me an address that post will deliver to
- If the winners can send me 5 bucks for the flat rate boxes that’d be cool, but if not that’s fine too
- You’re awesome
So yeah. You’ve got a month to get in on this. Spread it around and good luck!
These binders are a Chinese size small, meaning the person it was made to fit should have a bust between 31.5 and 34.2 inches, weigh between 105 and 122 pounds, and be around 5’4” [though I don’t think the height part really matters that much except for the length of the shirt]. To put that in perspective, I am about 5’2”, weigh somewhere around 115 pounds, and my bust is about 31 or 32 inches around. I typically wear size small in just about everything and still have some room to spare in them. According to their measurement range I should be able to fit these binders, but when I put them on they were a little bit too small. So please just make sure that it will fit.
Additionally, I’d like to add that this giveaway is open to anyone who is gender variant in any way and would need and use a binder on a fairly regular basis in addition to the partners and possibly friends of gender variants who would like to win the binder for that friend or partner. The only requirement I would ask of any that apply is that they ensure that the binder would fit them before applying. I’d hate to have someone win and have it sent to them just to find out that it was the wrong size and they can’t use it without getting hurt/being uncomfortable or it ripping.
You can tell me anything else you want, but that’s pretty much all I’d like to know. I won’t post any of the applications I get and if I need more information from anyone I’ll let them know via their ask box. You’ve got until the 30th to send in an application at which point I’ll make sure I have everyone who’s applied on my list and select 2 winners with a random number generator. When I’ve got the winners I’ll make a post and then notify them in their ask boxes to get their mailing addresses then get them shipped out as soon as I can.
So yeah, that’s pretty much all that needs to be done and you’ll be entered for a chance to win either a small brown binder or a small grey binder!
There once was a young boy with a very bad temper. The boy’s father wanted to teach him a lesson, so he gave him a bag of nails and told him that every time he lost his temper he must hammer a nail into their wooden fence.
On the first day of this lesson, the little boy had driven 37 nails into the fence. He was really mad!
Over the course of the next few weeks, the little boy began to control his temper, so the number of nails that were hammered into the fence dramatically decreased.
It wasn’t long before the little boy discovered it was easier to hold his temper than to drive those nails into the fence.
Then, the day finally came when the little boy didn’t lose his temper even once, and he became so proud of himself, he couldn’t wait to tell his father.
Pleased, his father suggested that he now pull out one nail for each day that he could hold his temper.
Several weeks went by and the day finally came when the young boy was able to tell his father that all the nails were gone.
Very gently, the father took his son by the hand and led him to the fence.
“You have done very well, my son,” he smiled, “but look at the holes in the fence. The fence will never be the same.”
The little boy listened carefully as his father continued to speak.
“When you say things in anger, they leave permanent scars just like these. And no matter how many times you say you’re sorry, the wounds will still be there.”
