Tales of Goth kinda at the office

Having to go shut the back door while on a meeting call, because the crows on the back deck, yelling for me to bring them food, are loud enough to carry over the phone.

Boycotting shopping at Hobby Lobby: Yes

Yelling at Hobby Lobby employees because their corporation is dangerously conservative: No. Do not do this. Do not torture minimum wage employees for this. 

Better yet, if you meet a Hobby Lobby employee, discuss with them what THEY need to get a better job and HELP THEM DO IT.

Anonymous said: After I was hurt by everyone (my family, my ex-lover and my only friend), I feel so betrayed right now. I want to be stronger and more like a villain! I'm so pathetic right now. Do you know any methods how to make yourself a person, who doesn't need others?

evilsupplyco:

Realize that you wounded, not pathetic.

Then remember that wounds heal because you are built of iron and fibers and an eldritch energy that nothing can fully explain — not science, not magic, nor philosophy or history or anatomy.

Craft your armor, not with hate, but with an understanding of yourself. Hate is easy, hate is an unsustainable fire. Hate is a flash — it is here then it is gone and there is nothing left behind.

Re-build yourself.

Gaze into your imagination and understand what you want. Who you are. Where you want to go. This is common advice, but it is incomplete, so let us finish the task: this process is never ending. The decision to craft your life begins the journey, only death ends it. When you are a ghost, the journey begins anew, worry about that then.

You are a child of darkness and a servant of the unending, unyielding abyss that fuels every black heart in every slice of existence at every instant in time.

You will not be left forever alone. You have sought us out, and we will find you. Together, we re-build. And you will conquer your own life, and you will build your hellish nightmares.

See you soon.

When I first saw this I strongly believed the model was gothiccharmschool; which would make perfect sense.

Heh. I adore that hat (and the glasses frames, and the whole look), but I haven’t had that hair color since … 1990?

Oooh, nice! I have another reproduction watch case in my jewelry supplies, and I’m planning on filling that one with dried ivy and blackberry thorns from the back yard*, and antique glass pearls from my paternal grandmother. 

I have become really, REALLY enamored of filling watch cases with little things that are important or talismanic to me. It feels very satisfying.

*Which is why there is a note currently on the kitchen counter  saying "poison & thorns in the oven". The RealHusband was not expecting to see that.
