I am eating chocolate for breakfast.
Right?! It will actually be a two year engagement by the time we get married but it still feels so quick. And there is so much that still needs to be done.
I’m getting married in 100 days. Holy smokes. So excited, so overwhelmed.
Oh course I messed up sending the save the date email, forgetting the wedding website. And then when I went to send an update, I clicked twice so people got duplicate update emails.
Of course my work computer freezes at 430 on my last day. While I’m in the middle of finishing a treatment plan and group and individual session notes. Guess I’m not going home anytime soon!
—Zelda Fitzgerald, in a review of her husband’s book in 1922 (via trishahaddad)
Reminder that F. Scott Fitzgerald stole his wife’s writing, many times, while suppressing her works. See “Save Me the Waltz”, which he forced her to revise so that he could use parts of it in his own book “Tender Is the Night”. And which author do we study in school?
I didn’t know this.
He also encouraged her to have affairs so he could use that for inspiration, and when she wanted to leave him for a man she fell in love with, he locked her in their house and wouldn’t let her leave.
When she wanted to publish “Save me the Waltz,” Fitzgerald wrote in his diary about DELIBERATELY trying to TRIGGER her schizophrenic episodes and making her incapable of fighting that battle.
And Fitzgerald scholars KNOW all this. They write articles about how it was all okay because in the end, it inspired Fitzgerald to write Great Literature.
knife his corpse
NEVER READ ANY OF HIS BOOKS AGAIN. AND READ HERS INSTEAD. CONSIGN HIM TO OBLIVION.
Fuck I didn’t know this fuck ugh god why fuck ugh
Yep. All true. Learned about his trifling ass studying creative writing and English lit. at CSU. Didn’t read ONE of her books on high school, yet we’re taught how amazing and talented he was. Makes me sick. xBx
Um. I thought it was common knowledge that he was an asshole?
I knew he was an asshole, but not that bad….
didn’t he also eventually ship her off to an asylum? (Where she died because asylums were horrible places and somebody just left her chained up somewhere while a fire was going on?)
No joke I have an ex who used to counter my Zelda love with “but but but she told Scott his penis was small one time!!!!!” SMDH.
Sometimes a man needs to know not to have delusions about how big his penis is.(via ladyfabulous)
Also, hi. It’s been a very long time since I’ve come around here.
M’s and my parents met for the first time tonight. I have been stressing about this weekend for months now. My parents are so effing awkward, we were trying to make plans for tomorrow and they were completely noncommittal and vague, as they have been the whole time leading up to this weekend. And when I try to be direct and say okay this is the plan, they are still wishy washy and impossible. ARGH. On the plus side, my brother joined us and after dinner he was discussing our parents with me and he was so insightful and told me about how he recently called my dad out on his shit and I am SO PROUD. Never in a million years would j have thought my little egomaniac brother would be able to make this incredible observations about my parents and their behaviors, let alone confront them.
