This is Chester. When I was in Afghanistan I got a care package from one of those “Adopt a Soldier” programs that lets families send care packages to service men and women who are deployed overseas. Anyway, I got this care package, and it came with the usual stuff: Baby wipes, crackers, peanut butter, the Dad threw in a pack of cigarettes, and there was some jerky. But there was also a little beanie baby gold fish and a hand written note from a 7 year old girl that said  “Dear Soldier, (I wasn’t even mad) I hope you are doing well. I’m sorry you have to miss thanksgiving with your family. This is my friend Chester. He keeps me safe from monsters, but I think you need him more than I do. I hope he keeps you safe from the monsters you’re fighting. Take good care of him for me”.
You bet your ass that little fish was in my pocket every time I went on patrol.

Hey so I just followed a few people.Hi!

Just as an FYI that I don’t believe in follow for follow. No need to follow me if I follow you.

This is a personal journal. It’s random and silly fun. I have dedicated tumblrs (because seriously compartmentalizing is the bomb) for other things.

So

  1. benedictcumberbatchruinedme is my fandom tumblr where most of my Sherlock things go.
  2. benedictcumberbatchruinedmensfw is where the johnlock porn goes (when I remember to login and run a queue).
  3. martinfreemansstubble is just silly fun and I don’t check sources and I just reblog when his stubble comes up because I like it.
  4.  everythingisantlers is my Hannibal tumblr where me and my friend Elle reblog all the Hannibal related things.
  5. tvwritertwo is my tv writing journal. Not much there but it’s where I’m reblog and somewhat interact with tv writers on tumblr.
  6.  aprilsdoodles is where I post random crap ass doodles.
  7.  markruffalo is where I write about my secret life as Mark Ruffalo (note: I am not Mark Ruffalo. I just play him on TV. And ONLY on TV. Some other guy handles the movies)

8. aprilismusic.tumblr.com is where I’ll be posting music that I love.

mildredandbobbin replied to your post “It’s 2:18 am. I can’t sleep. Fuck it. I’m reading ‘On the other Side’…”

*dies* it’s 4.30pm here, about to start the kids’ bath/tea/bed routine (aka the arsenic hour) and that made my arvo (ps I hope it puts you to sleep)

It did. Not because it’s boring but because it’s this happy lil calm place of anticipation. 

I expect it’ll be the best post-season three fic ever, ever, ever for a very long time.

I am so frustrated by my inability to write something that isn’t shit. It’s frustrating because my output is quite a lot and I have all these lovely ideas and I just want to write.  But I am so horrible at it.  

I am confident in nearly every aspect of my life except for writing. And I have no reason to believe I’m not shit because I know what good writing looks like. I have been paid to edit good writing. I beta good writing. I read good writing. My output is not good writing.

It’s shit. Shit. Shit. Shit.

Should I take a dumb class? Ugh.  

Ugh.


Ugh.


Ugh.

This has been a whinge. A whinge.

99-Year-Old Lady Sews A Dress A Day For Children In Need 
Lillian Weber, a 99-year-old good Samaritan from Iowa, has spent the last few years sewing a dress a day for the Little Dresses For Africa charity, a Christian organization that distributes dresses to children in need in Africa and elsewhere.
Weber’s goal is to make 1,000 dresses by the time she turns 100 on May 6th. So far, she’s made more than 840. Though she says she could make two a day, she only makes one – but each single dress she makes per day is personalized with careful stitchwork. She hopes that each little girl who receives her dress can take pride in her new garment.

this woman is my hero.
