Hi, I'm Aren. You can also call me Kat if we're friends. She/her, he/him, they/them.

Hispanic, genderfluid, Texas.

Surviving the boredom of this city, one day at a time.

 

MY THEATER ARTS TEACHER IS V COOL I WAS LIKE, “hey, I can film the auditions for you and put the videos on your computer if you’d like” AND HE WAS LIKE, “Yeah, that’d be- OH YOU KNOW WHAT I remember you told me you like filming and film making. That gives me an idea. Video editing isn’t really my thing, so maybe you can film and edit the cast and crew and the making of the production. Someone did that when I was directing a show for (a college, m’kay) and it was awesome. At one point they filmed me with a tear rolling down and then laughing, and they added all this cool music and made it into like a real cool behind the scenes thing. Maybe you could do that if you’d like.”

FriiiiuiiIIIICKKKK YEAHHHHH. Then I was like, “do you think that maybe we should ask people if they’re alright with their auditions being filmed?” And he was like, “mmm, nah just show up and record. I’m the director, and you’re doing it with my permission.”

HE’S SO COOL I JUST WANNA CRY TBH HE’S GREAT THIS IS GONNA BE SO FUN.

My hands smell like mustard and I still haven’t found my damn keys

This is honestly the most heart breaking thing I’ve seen in a long time

Fun guy chillin’ in South American rainforest finds plastic-eating fungi
Seriously, though this is kind of a big deal. Know that big problem we have? You know, the one involving a crapload of used plastic hanging around in landfills with nowhere to biodegrade for a couple million years? Well, Jonathan Russell might’ve solved that problem. See, Russell and his fellow Yale students went to Ecuador, where they found a new kind of fungus they’re calling Pestalotiopsis microspora. Big deal, you’re thinking. Anyone can find fungus anywhere! Well, something his fellow students found out after the fact is that this fungus can live on a diet of polyurethane alone — and even crazier, it doesn’t even need air to do so! In other words, we could potentially put it at the bottom of a landfill and cover it with plastic, and it would do the rest of the work. This might be game-changing if it works as advertised.

Vegetarian elbow spaghetti 🌻
I thought it would taste bad like all the other times I try to make new things, but it&#8217;s actually so fucking good

I’m not sure why exactly my mom is so afraid of me not being home and actually having fun. She gas lights me all the time and makes me think I’m entirely dependent of her. She doesn’t even like me. Even when I “jokingly” say that she loves my brother more than any of my other siblings, she doesn’t deny it. Anytime I get sick, feel sick, or say something about my mental health, she screams at me like it’s my fault and I’m worthless because I’m not fucking perfect. Said brother is the exact same way. She calls me a hypochondriac for saying I have a cold when I’m literally coughing my tonsils to shit, and she has every fucking medication you can possibly think of. I don’t have the energy to be angry anymore, I’m just fucking sad. She’s never encouraged me to be happy, only encouraged me to be smart and thin. I’m pretty sure she hates me because her intentions have always been to make me feel inferior, yet I find things that make me much happier than she’s ever been.

Don’t even get me started on my dad. I find it easier to pretend he’s not part of my life.
