Glue and Shortswords

An uninteresting blog thing

It’s a shame Nendoroids are so expensive (especially the shipping) because a lot of them are really cute but I don’t want to spend that much on them. I theoretically have the money, but I should spend it on other things. I understand why they’d be expensive since they are good quality products. The preorder period for Miss Monochrome is ending tomorrow, but as cute as she is, I don’t think I will order her. They also announced an Aoba nendoroid and although I would have thought I’d want it, the nendoroid looks a bit plain so I’m not sure. I have a month to decide (if preorders don’t run out) so I’ll see.

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE DON’T SCROLL PAST THIS.
Scarleteen is a vital queer and trans positive sexual health resource. Their staff do an amazing job of creating really comprehensive and helpful articles on literally every sexual topic you can imagine. They also provide live chats, advice columns, moderated discussion forums, and SMS-based peer support. This site has helped me on countless occasions, and I refer at-risk queer and trans kids to this site every single day.
Scarleteen is invaluable.
And Scarleteen needs your help.
During their annual donation drive this year, the site was only able to raise $1,500. Only fifty people out of Scarleteen’s 350,000 unique monthly visitors contributed to the fundraising drive.
This means that unless Scarleteen sees a stable, sustained, 50% increase in donations, the site will essentially be forced to go dark on May 1. No more new content, no more advice columns, no more forums, no more live chat, no more SMS support. 
This is devastating.
If Scarleteen goes dark, millions of young people, vulnerable queer and trans teens among them, will lose access to essential, fundamental sexual health resources. We cannot let this happen.
Please, please, please donate to Scarleteen. Consider making a recurring monthly contribution if you feel that this is within your means. Even $5 or $10 a month will go a long way to helping this very, very deserving organization.
And whether or not you’re able to donate at this time, please signal boost this and spread the word. Scarleteen does incredible, very necessary work, and they need our help.

Thank you so much for this, lalondes!

I haven’t been active for a while, so I just wanted to mention I’m studying for exams at the moment, which are in two and a half weeks. I will probably be pretty scarce during that time. But I still exist, so no reason to worry about me.

I didn’t know the name for it until now, but apparently I have trypophobia. At least a lot of things that fall under this category make my skin crawl.

I feel like this needs to be preserved.
