I’m sickened by those who sent horrible messages to TomSka while he was still on Tumblr. Yes, he has made mistakes. Yes, he had said and done things to piss people off.
But he is trying his best to redeem himself while battling depression, yet people kicked him while he was down.
His new vlog genuinely made me cry. I just wanted to give him a cwtch all the way through.
I met Tom both at last year’s and this year’s SitC, and both times he was just so welcoming and kind, and set my nerves at ease. I gave him a drawing both times and Tom appreciated them - even jokingly said that he’d use my pic for this year as inspiration when he exercises! He took the time to speak properly to everyone he met, and I am so grateful for that.
I doubt he’ll see this but if he does… Tom, you take all the time you need to get back up and get ready to do what you do best. Myself and all your fans appreciate all the work you do, and when you’re feeling better than you are now, we’ll be ready to support you.
I’m sorry this turned out to be a bit of a rant. But it needed to be said.
In a victory activists were unsure they’d get, Uganda’s Constitutional Court overturned the country’s draconian Anti-Homosexuality Act today, declaring the anti-LGBT law “null and void” because of a parliamentary technicality in how it was passed.
The court determined that when members of Parliament passed the law in December 2013, Speaker Rebecca Kadaga had not established quorum — a required minimum number of members present to vote — effectively invalidating the law.
AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DIRECT LIFE-SAVING ACTION SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETED BY UGANDAN QUEER ACTIVISTS!!!!!!!!!! FUCKING HEROIC AND LEGENDARY!!!!!!!!!!! THERE’S NOT ENOUGH EXCLAMATION POINTS IN THE WORLD FOR HOW IMPORTANT THIS IS!!!
i haven’t posted a selfie in a while and my hair looks gross here but w/e.
So far this week I have had two interviews for admin jobs, one for the DVLA and another for a super small financial planning company. I spilled water down myself during the DVLA one because my cup had a hole in it so maybe I’ll get the sympathy vote.
The past few weeks have consisted of getting up, going to work, coming home, eating, binge watching Avatar: The Last Airbender and sleeping at 11.30pm. Kinda repetitive.
I should really get to writing the whole alternate history royal family thing or whatever setting it is, but I’ve just been thinking up character development things rather than actual plot and it’s a pain because I want to see it already written down.
Today I won £20 on a scratchcard though, so that’s nice, especially since I’m broke ever since I went to SitC. It’ll probably just go on diesel or snacks though.
So… um, yeah. I had loads of stuff planned out to write with this selfie but apparently my brain thought it was a good idea to file it all away before I got to use it. Too much admin happening.
