things that are horrifying
IM PRINTING THIS OUT AND PUTTING IT ON MY FRIDGE
BECAUSE GOD****IT PARENTS JUST BECAUSE THE ONLY INTERNET RELATIONSHIPS YOU HEAR ABOUT ON THE NEWS ARE THE ONES WHERE SOMEONE WINDS UP AS A FLESH SUIT DOESN’T MEAN THERE CAN’T BE ONES THAT ARE LIKE NORMAL AND HEALTHY AND EVERYTHING
I remember when I was fourteen and my friend was thirteen, she was staying over at my house when her parents called her to say that they’d taken her computer out of her room. She hadn’t done anything wrong, but they’d decided that she spent too much time on the internet. She wouldn’t be allowed back online for months. She was home-schooled and didn’t have any physical friends except for me, because I was the only other kid at our church. She cried all night, saying that she’d lost every one of her friends but one. I held her through it, thinking that I couldn’t imagine being suddenly and completely cut off from all my friends at school.
Trufax: in August 2005, I got sick. Staph infection. I woke up from a nap one night and couldn’t walk. I was wheeled into the hospital with exactly one hour to live. I spent eight days unconscious. And when I woke up, I had to spend the next three months trying to make my legs move again and learning how to sit on the edge of my bed without passing out…and four months after that learning how to walk again. (One doctor informed me that he thought that both of my legs should have been cut off, as they were hopelessly infected and I would never use them again.)
Those seven months would have been unbearable if not for internet friends who set letters, packages, phone calls and (when I was in a convalescent home and had access to a computer for a half hour every day) emails. I was depressed, angry, terrified about the hospital bills, and the emails and letters and phone calls and gifts were the best things that I could have received. They told me that there was a world out there beyond the hospital and that I mattered to the people there—even if I’d never seen them in person. I don’t think I’d have survived the loneliness and the pain and the fear as a sane person without my internet friends…and at least two of my nurses and two of my physical therapists agreed.
last winter, i was super lonely. I just felt very lost an confused. I only had two good friends and they had both moved on, so I didn’t have anyone. I prayed for a friend. What i never expected was that she was an online friend. I had the best conversations of my life with her and she helped me and encouraged me through a sad time. Internet friends are for real, I don’t know what i’d do without them.
Basically my entire childhood was a dark, friendless void. I have a very exuberant and enthusiastic approach to friendships and that has a tendency to scare people, especially when you’re a child. I was labelled weird at an early age and was even bullied for a long time. The longest lasting friendship I’ve ever had is my ex-boyfriend, who I’ve known since the sixth grade. All other friendships I had evaporated as soon as I didn’t have a class to force contact every day.
My internet friendships have spanned years now, and I am thankful every day. When my grandfather died, my internet friends were there for me. I had never lost someone so close to me before and I’d lived with him for thirteen years, so I was pretty devastated. Without them, I still wonder if I would be here.

it has taken me like five viewings of this photograph to realize that “china” refers to the dishware they probably use at this restaurant and not actual chinese people
Honestly I wish I could make a big long video about why I have opinions on things but a) I don’t have the face or voice for a long video about my opinions, b) negative feedback terrifies me, and c) I live in a house with four people and there is no place in it where no one would discover me ranting and raving about River Song
