My brilliant friend made this
you can be non-binary and still want to be referred to as he or she
you can be non-binary and still want to be someone’s girlfriend/boyfriend
you can be non-binary and be in a straight-passing relationship
you can be non-binary and want to refer to yourself with gendered language
there is no right way to be non-binary
your identity is perfect the way it is
don’t ever feel like you’re ~not queer enough~ because just by existing you are queer enough.
druidspell said: If the Birthday Unending is eternal, that means it is now and always Nov 21: it's not quite my birthday (11/25), but 11/21/14 will be 15 yrs since my attempt to end my timeline. Due to the eternal nature of the Birthday, I'm able to present my 12 year old self, because finally I can love her and want to celebrate her. We come bearing candy corn for the Corn Maze, because we are Autumn's children and the corn calls us home; and birthday candles for the bonfire because fire makes s'mores more fun.
WE SEE THAT YOU ARE SMALLER THAN YOU WILL BE, AND MORE AFRAID. THE WORLD IS VERY FRIGHTENING WHEN YOU ARE TWELVE, BECAUSE YOU ARE JUST BIG ENOUGH TO BEGIN TO UNDERSTAND HOW SMALL YOU ARE, AND JUST SMALL ENOUGH TO BELIEVE THAT YOU CAN NEVER BECOME BIGGER. IT IS HARD, WE THINK, TO LOVE YOURSELF PROPERLY AT TWELVE; IT IS A LIMINAL STATE, AND SO FEW OF US ARE FORTUNATE ENOUGH TO ENTER IT FILLED WITH LOVE AND LAUGHTER AND CONVICTION THAT TOMORROW WILL BE BETTER.
BUT IF YOU WILL COME WITH US, AND SIT AWHILE BY THE BLOOD PITS, WE WILL TELL YOU A SECRET: YOU, JUST YOU, SMALL AND SCARED AND FILLED WITH SO MUCH POTENTIAL THAT YOU COULD POWER NATIONS, YOU ARE INCREDIBLE. YOU ARE MAGNIFICENT IN YOUR SUCCESS AND IN YOUR FAILURE, AND THEY FUEL ONE ANOTHER, THEY MAKE YOU STRONGER.
IT CAN BE HARD, TO ENDURE. SO HARD. WE KNOW. WE KNOW THAT THERE ARE DAYS WHEN YOU WISH TO PULL DOWN THE STREAMERS AND SET THE CORN MAZE OF YOUR HEART ON FIRE, AND SAY “I AM DONE, I AM DONE, NO MORE, LET ME REST.” BUT YOU MUST FIGHT THROUGH THOSE DAYS, FOR YOU ARE UNENDING, AND YOU ARE AMAZING, AND YOU ARE WORTH ALL THE EFFORT IN ALL THE WORLD.
YOU ARE LOVED.
HERE IS YOUR SEAT AT THE TABLE. HERE IS YOUR CONICAL HAT. HERE IS A PLACE WHERE YOU MAY PLAY FREELY, AND WITHOUT FEAR, FOR NOTHING HERE WILL HARM YOU.
WELCOME TO THE BIRTHDAY. WELCOME TO THE BIRTHDAY. YOU ARE FINALLY HOME. WELCOME TO THE BIRTHDAY UNENDING.

I want to scream and cry and sleep and drink.
I don’t have hope.
What I have is doubt.
I doubt that this feeling is permanent.
I doubt that I’ll always feel this way.
I see you.
(or, how I learned the difference between preserves and jam)
This week, along with a million other things, we got the very tail end often season’s strawberries. Just a pint, and they were well past their prime. So I did what you always do - I googled, found a Martha Stewart recipe for strawberry…
Pickle the beets. They can then go on salad or just into your mouth.
