So I work at target now and one of my favorite things to do when I hear something in the next aisle fall is to drop what I’m doing and stand at the end of that aisle like so:
do atheists say oh my god
yep. we say it any time we hear something that’s unbelievable.

I have finally gotten it all up on AO3 — my stories I mean. So in case you prefer AO3, here are links to all the stories with short summaries.
Anything You Can Do: …I can do better. Prompt: Kurt and Blaine realize they can see the couple across the alley having sex…which…
I’m pretty sure this photo has been going around Tumblr already but I’m going to post them again since they’re my photos :) So my friend and I ran into Darren, Joey, Brian and Mia at the Simpsons take the bowl concert and it was seriously the greatest moment or my entire life because Darren is my idol and I love him so much and Joey recognised me and Juliana from Starkid Summer Season (my other friend and I went every night for almost 3 weeks) and Brian recognised us from LeakyCon (he tweeted a picture of the back of Juliana’s head as Quirrell) Mia took the picture of us cause Darren just handed her the camera to take it and I would have asked her to be in it too but I was kinda freaking out about Darren being right there! He was so nice and I gave him a bracelet that my friend and I had made to give to all the Starkids on behalf of the Aussie fans and he was so surprised that i’d just been carrying it around with me in case I met him. Juliana told him that it was a dream of hers to hold hands with him and jump around in a circle and he did it and it was so adorable! Then he had to go and we were walking behind them out to the parking lot and Mia and Darren were holding hands and being all cute and sweet :) I will never ever forget this moment. EVER!

-preferred names/pronouns on all school records
-gender-accesible washrooms and change rooms available to those who require them
-disciplinary action taken against those who act in a discriminatory or hateful manner towards students, staff, and families falling on the queer and trans spectrums
the consultation was the longest ever done by the VSB, with over 120 speakers spread across 3 meetings.
the process also resulting in two school board trustees being ejected form their party’s caucus, due their discriminatory actions and arguments.
