I used to have those pants.
I wish I still had those pants.
Christina Tesoro, on growing up female and becoming aware of misogyny, in the world and in herself.
Resonant, and reminds me of something Luka once wrote on his LJ (that I’m paraphrasing badly): “As you grow up you realize that you’re standing in a circle of dicks and they’re all pointed at you.”
The writer is the same dude who did the last Terezi comic, so I’m wincing pre-emptively.
It’s not just waking up bloody that makes me feel like a failure, it’s having done so on white sheets.
I went to bed and then had uber important questions. Totally.
Do you guys have standards about Where The Bed Should Be And Face in a room?
I recently moved stuff around my new room and while skyping with my dad he expressed concern that the bed is facing the door, and specifically that my pillows/head face it. Kind of feng shui.
And I’ve realized that I have never seen 1) a bed facing the door; if anything it tends to be sideways relative to an entrance 2) a bed where the headboard/head part isn’t directly against the wall.
I also realized that “wrong” facing bed stuff wouldn’t have let me sleep well before: I didn’t flip my pillows to the other end if the bed because it Felt Wrong. And this held until I had my college junior year month long insomnia crisis where, apart from having a ridiculous nervous breakdown, I was so desperate for sleep that I would try anything in hopes of rest. This included sleeping diagonally, without pillows, feet on pillows, on the rug, etc.
It seems to have broken that instinct in me entirely as I didn’t even notice that my sleeping arrangements are a bit off. But I have childhood memories of wondering if sleeping in a bed closer to the window or a door was safer (if a vampire were to come in, which bed was more defensible, was he more likely to come in through a window?).
This makes me wonder: is this leftover hindbrain instinct whispering in everyone or is it cultural? What are your bed and pillow position standards? What are positions that just instinctively weird you out?
I’m usually perpendicular to the door. I think this is more about maximizing room space than any particular reasoning or belief on my part.
(Also, the Feng Shui thing is not to sleep with your feet facing the door, if I remember right.)
It’s always been about convenience for me.
For some time as a teen I had my bed perpendicular to the door (so I’d be looking out the door when lying in bed, if the door was open). When I eventually switched it up so my bed was parallel, with the head of my bed a bit inside the door and along the same wall, it was 100% because I had gotten my own TV to play videogames on, and I needed to move my bed to have somewhere to sit to play them.
Currently my bed is parallel to the door (well, kind of; the door is in a diagonal wall) because that’s the only place it will fit, not block the radiator, allow access to both closets, and allow room for both me and J to exit the bed without having to climb over one another.
i won’t update the site just yet, so… call this a sneak preview :3

There’s no stress like trying to fix a mysteriously ill computer stress.
Note: Beep codes usually mean something, but what depends on you knowing the BIOS vendor because different ones use different codes.
My usual default assumption these days is loose cables or connections, although that’s not always worked.
I’m pretty sure we had it right with the video card error - cleaning it out and reseating seems to have worked fine. Considering the amount of dust and cat hair it had lodged in there and how often the case gets knocked around (J has to keep his case under his desk, which doesn’t have enough legroom, and while he cleans the components regularly the card is so big it really needed to be removed completely to get all the crannies gunk likes to hide in), I’m not surprised.
The CPU fan seems to have been a simple case of one of the thicker cable bundles having fallen against it, preventing it from turning. That was easy enough to rearrange, but a pain in the ass considering how hard it is to get the computer back under the desk and everything hooked up again.
Fingers crossed it gives us no more trouble. I don’t really want to have to give up the nice video card I’ve been meaning to install so J’s computer will work. (I mean, I will if it comes to that, but I’d really like to be able to run some things I can’t at the moment…)
