People call me various things. Teela, Teelar, Tee-tee, Teelch, Tuula, that Chick, Her, Choir Mommy.

Choir and opera person (lyric soprano with the possibility of extending into a coloratura?). History person (especially the American Revolution and the Civil War). I also like Greek Mythology. Various other things shall appear.

If there is something on my blog that triggers you and I do not tag it, PLEASE send me an ask to tell me what it is. You can be anonymous, or not. Whatever is comfy for you.

My ask is always open.

Have some cookies and tea and a blanket for your stay.


"I, Persephone Praxidike Chthonios, sentence you to Tartarus, where your mind will burn with hope, your body will be broken by your task, and your tale will be a dire warning for anyone who tries to escape my husband," she said, and looked over the yawning edge of the Pit. "Kottos!"

Yes, Praxidike… His voice boomed.

"Take him!"

The flames reached forth, darker and hotter. Sisyphus’ open mouth was fixed in a scream but she couldn’t hear him.

Hey, so, same anon from before. I'm sorry to bother you with all the life problems and such, but I guess this time I just need a little comfort or something. I won't ask for personal stories from you cause that's rude, but I'm having a meeting with my therapist tomorrow, and I'm going to ask her about antidepressant medicine. The other night thoughts of death were pulling at me really strongly, but a good friend of mine talked to me for a while and got me out of it. But, they recommended..

(cont) That I talk to my therapist about the medication, since they themselves had taken it before and it had done them good. I trust them on it, but I’m really nervous about the thought of it. Are people going to stop trusting me because I’m taking them? What happens if my employer finds out somehow? I’m just worried about what it entitles outside of the medicinal effects. (end)

I don’t know if people will stop trusting you. If your employer finds out, they should not be able to legally do anything to you. If they fire you, that violates the law and you should certainly talk to someone about that (unless you hate that job in which case run awaayyyy). You may be required to tell them, in all reality.
I know it can be really scary to put medicines in your body, especially when they change the chemistry of your brain. But if you need it or it will help you feel better, I strongly recommend that you start taking it. People are prejudiced against mental illness, but put yourself first. Don’t let other people dictate your self worth.
(I do not take anti-depressants because I do not feel comfortable changing my mental state, as screwed up as it is)

Anon, I will answer you when I am no longer a ball of angry energy.

Your voice sounds completely different in different languages. It alters your personality somehow. I don’t think people get the same feeling from you. The rhythm changes. Because the rhythm of the language is different, it changes your inner rhythm and that changes how you process everything.

When I hear myself speak French, I look at myself differently. Certain aspects will feel closer to the way I feel or the way I am and others won’t. I like that—to tour different sides of yourself. I often find when looking at people who are comfortable in many languages, they’re more comfortable talking about emotional stuff in a certain language or political stuff in another and that’s really interesting, how people relate to those languages.

I’m still full from McDonalds earlier but I’m gonna have trouble when I get hungry again
Turns out candy shops aren’t my thing quite yet. Like I can do groceries and restaurants and fast foods, but July 4th really did set me back.
But so far this vacation I’ve been doing really well, remembering that everyone eats what they need to eat and some people have drugs that make them not hungry and that eating is not a competition.

Is it normal for a relationship to go slow?

Yes! Though it’s also normal to go fast, so don’t feel bad either way.
It will also probably be awkward at first, but don’t let that stop you. Awkward can often cause slow.


is it just me or do you think it’d be helpful if they showed a model in the size you were looking for when you’re trying to shop online, like yes that looks great in size small but what about the other sizes 



I love the Pushing Daisies universe because it’s this beautiful little bright world where people live in windmills and keep bees and everyone’s jobs are things like lighthouse keeping, illusionists, and scratch-and-sniff book authors. But it’s teeming with cold-blooded murder.

I love how the Addams Family has ZERO slut-shaming. Like… honey you can dance naked and enslave someone with your womanly charms if you want to, I don’t fucking care, but so help me you’re going to get a college education first.


The Addamses are what every family should aspire to be like (you know; without the dismemberment and electric chairs as play time).  Honestly, have you ever seen more unconditionally loving and supportive parents than Gomez and Morticia?  And not just with the kids, but with each other.  I think what’s especially unique about them is how open they are with everything.  They don’t treat their children like children.  They treat them like they treat everyone else; direct, and to the point. 

It’s creepy how many good examples of parenting and romantic relationships there is in these characters, especially considering they are supposed to be the antithesis of the stereotypical American nuclear family.

bolded the coment ^ cause relevant!
