eyyyy so this part 1 of a commission for a super cool person whose girlfriend came up with an A+ AU, lemme just copypaste the summary of it mmyes

"1930s Gravity Falls AU where Uncle Stan’s a bootlegger who runs a still, and maybe a moldy little sideshow as well. When the kids move in one summer he soon has them running rum all through the valley (vintage car chases with the deputies optional, but encouraged) and in their spare time, they investigate all the usual bizarre goings-on in Gravity Falls. She also thought maybe Li’l Gideon would be some kind of tent revival preacher boy, whom Mabel kept having to fend off."

I AM SO ON BOARD WITH THIS

this was so much fun and there’s more to come yeayeayea

This is potentially life saving information everyone should know.

No you guys this post helped me find my cat. He was missing for almost a month and I’ve had him for over 12 years. After seeing this I put his favorite blanket he always slept on outside hoping he would smell mine or his scent and he was back the next fucking day asleep on it.

When my cat got out, we called and called for him, and then, later that night, I remembered similar advice to this, and so put his little scratching pad, which he adores, on the front porch. Not even half an hour later, I heard a thump, opened the door, and there was his big butt, meowing at me.

Important and vital

ibarelyknewr asked: Dream analysis and symbology is almost entirely discredited in the realms of not-pop psychology. Its roots are in mysticism or in the flawed Freudian and Jungian models, and an attempt to codify what particular "dream tropes" mean on a broad level inherently clashes with the random and personal nature of dreaming. Science has discovered no evidence of meaningfulness in particular symbols; dreams only serve as an indicator of what you feel and what's on your mind a lot.

it seems kind of lame for me to be thinking about my teeth a lot.

mattu898 asked: I'm not sure if you knew this or not but loosing teeth in dreams usually means one of the following: 1.) Your anxious about something. 2.) You're fearing death or old age. 3.) Represents a personal loss. 4.) Symbolizes starting somethings new. 5.) Indicator of a major life change. I use to dream about loosing my teeth too when ever school started up and i was really stressed out.

Dang. I’m pretty sure my teeth losing dreams could be three of those things probably. But then again, I think my teeth losing dreams all started when I first got my braces, so it might not at all be symbolic at all.

I dunno, I just have a hard time taking dream analysis seriously when I had a dream about a laser armband cat that looked like a trumpet and turned into fire at the sight of a floating demon head.

I dunno if I ever mentioned this here but I keep having recurring dreams about losing my teeth

The way I lose them can vary but it tends to involve braces or retainers or something like last night I dreamt that I had braces and it broke apart in my mouth taking some teeth with it

I dunno what it means beyond me having hella anxiety about my teeth

"Should parents read their daughter’s texts or monitor her online activity for bad language and inappropriate content?"

Earlier today, I served as the “young woman’s voice” in a panel of local experts at a Girl Scouts speaking event. One question for the panel was something to the effect of, "Should parents read their daughter’s texts or monitor her online activity for bad language and inappropriate content?"

I was surprised when the first panelist answered the question as if it were about cyberbullying. The adult audience nodded sagely as she spoke about the importance of protecting children online.

I reached for the microphone next. I said, “As far as reading your child’s texts or logging into their social media profiles, I would say 99.9% of the time, do not do that.”

Looks of total shock answered me. I actually saw heads jerk back in surprise. Even some of my fellow panelists blinked.

Everyone stared as I explained that going behind a child’s back in such a way severs the bond of trust with the parent. When I said, “This is the most effective way to ensure that your child never tells you anything,” it was like I’d delivered a revelation.

It’s easy to talk about the disconnect between the old and the young, but I don’t think I’d ever been so slapped in the face by the reality of it. It was clear that for most of the parents I spoke to, the idea of such actions as a violation had never occurred to them at all.

It alarms me how quickly adults forget that children are people.

Apparently people are rediscovering this post somehow and I think that’s pretty cool! Having experienced similar violations of trust in my youth, this is an important issue to me, so I want to add my personal story:

Around age 13, I tried to express to my mother that I thought I might have clinical depression, and she snapped at me “not to joke about things like that.” I stopped telling my mother when I felt depressed.

Around age 15, I caught my mother reading my diary. She confessed that any time she saw me write in my diary, she would sneak into my room and read it, because I only wrote when I was upset. I stopped keeping a diary.

Around age 18, I had an emotional breakdown while on vacation because I didn’t want to go to college. I ended up seeing a therapist for - surprise surprise - depression.

Around age 21, I spoke on this panel with my mother in the audience, and afterwards I mentioned the diary incident to her with respect to this particular Q&A. Her eyes welled up, and she said, “You know I read those because I was worried you were depressed and going to hurt yourself, right?”

TL;DR: When you invade your child’s privacy, you communicate three things:

  1. You do not respect their rights as an individual.
  2. You do not trust them to navigate problems or seek help on their own.
  3. You probably haven’t been listening to them.

Information about almost every issue that you think you have to snoop for can probably be obtained by communicating with and listening to your child.

Part of me is really excited to see that the original post got 200 notes because holy crap 200 notes, and part of me is really saddened that something so negative has resonated with so many people.
