Basically fragrances give me terrible headaches and often make me nauseous. I can relate to the one.

oh mood, a lot of fragrances (particularly floral scents and citrusy scents) either give me headaches or clog up my nose. im glad none of my friends are really into perfumes

I've had to leave people's houses because they had a lot of fragrances. They tend to get offended about it. I really don't understand why.

i guess it's like when people show you their favorite band or favorite game and get all upset when you don't like it as much as they do. they just can't comprehend why you would not like the thing that they like. and since we don't get a physical reaction that they can see (like hives), they Really don't get it

lowkey wanna hear people's experiences trying to learn mandarin chinese, because apparently the us state department says it's a lv 5 Hard Language for native english speakers to learn but i learned it via magic as a baby

idk i just wanna see what kind of journey it would have been if i tried to learn it as an adult

i learned it via magic as a baby too but now i cant write it anymore because the computer just does that for me u know- its like i spent all of elementary and middle school speaking and writing it and then it just deteriorated rapidly lolol (so im gonna guess writing it is the hard part)

yeah, writing really is the hardest part 😔 i only went through 1 year of elementary school in china so i never really learned how to write it in the first place lmao

(to be clear, neither the op of this image nor myself are saying that the stuff listed here is cringe, these are just some design choices that people (often times kids) get mocked for. like don't lie, we've all done at least a few of these, but now it's 2020 we can do whatever we want)

@kidd said: I find the grammar really easy and I started learning at..23? Speaking isnt terribly hard, but tones are hard to adjust to. What makes it hard is the writing and reading characters. Outta ten , 5 seems reasonable with 10 being impossible to learn lol.

yeah i feel like tones are the worst part of mandarin (or cantonese) for english speakers. like we have "tones" in english (kinda? the way you say a sentence makes it a statement or a question, or conveys some kind of emotion), but not to the same extent and it's not completely central to the language itself.

the characters though can go fuck off, i'm lowkey illiterate in written chinese. i can read and understand the most common characters, but the more specific ones are a big ???

also the state department's language listing apparently changed, it went from a maximum of 5 to a maximum of 4. most languages are in category 3 now, but chinese (mandarin and canto), japanese, korean, and arabic are still in the highest difficulty


i meant for this to be sad but it came out more Overdramatic than anything

context: princely son gets framed for treason, emperor dad exiles em (rip), emperor dad deeply regrets it and pardons them 11 years later, but princely son is still Mad about the whole thing

shapeshifter oc who is a Bird

no one believes they're a bird though, despite the overwhelming evidence that they are, in fact, A Bird. they don't talk in their human form, but they refuse to shut up when they're in their bird form

im 600% over physical therapy but i know i need it
