Hello! Recently, I was surprised by the amount of people who come into our askbox asking about how to start a QPP with someone. Usually, the answer is “I don’t know! It depends on the person.” But this might help those of you that are shy and are not sure where to start. It can also serve as an ice-breaker.
I tried to be as broad as possible on a tiny sheet on paper. Feel free to edit it, make changes, etc. :) I have a higher-res PNG version if you need it. Just contact me! (chekhovandowl)
You have been taught and trained
To apologize for taking up time and space.
When you say, “I am,” and you feel
the curve of your tongue in your mouth
as you form the word “sorry”, stop.
“Sorry” is not meant to be a state of being.
It is an adjective. Replace it with a noun.
Say “a scientist” instead.
Say “a friend”.
Say “a writer, and a damn good one at that.”
Find better ways to fill the blank.
“A backyard astronomer”
“An inquisitive adventurer”
“Not sure, but I’m figuring it out.”
The breath in your lungs is not a waste of air,
and you were born with vocal cords to fill the silence.
Feel the silence. Fill it.

i want to see more girl underachievers who are comedically lazy but have a heart of gold and can achieve things they thought they couldn’t when they really try like there are millions of guy characters like this and i can’t think of even one girl
Alex or Penny from Happy Endings?
I’m sick of magical worlds with no technology. I want fairy run coffee shops where you can get a latte with a shot of charisma, because you’ve got a big presentation you’re worried about, or witches working at Apple selling phones that automatically appear in your pocket if you accidentally leave it somewhere, or psychics running hair salons who always know how you want your hair to look, or aura reader therapists. I just really want normalized magic in modern society
I’m not posting this to humiliate me or the other person purposely. I’m posting this to show everyone out there; never let anyone make you feel bad for something they did. I apologized for his cheating at the beginning. It’s been two weeks and I was a fucking idiot for doing that. Don’t let anyone do that to you. Stand up for how you feel and stand up for yourself. Never let anyone walk all over you. You deserve so much more than that. It took me too long to realize that.
Don’t take anyone’s shit.
