Introverts are observant by nature. They’re the quiet ones who prefer to sit at the sidelines and observe those around them. And no, they’re not judging people when they do this. This also doesn’t mean that introverts are wallflowers. They can talk your ear off if the topic is something they’re passionate or know a lot about. They simply don’t feel the need nor have the energy to be social butterflies.
As Susan Cain puts it, “We’re not anti-social; we’re just differently social.”
I’ve only been a casual watcher of the New Adventures of Peter and Wendy, but I was really liking the ending … because you know what? The love of a good woman isn’t usually enough to change a man-boy’s ways, and Peter was an irresponsible jerk a lot of the time and Wendy needs to be with someone much better than that (if she even needs to be with anyone at all.)
It was a sad ending, but I liked it. Boys don’t change just because girls love them (ask me how I know this.) I felt bad for Wendy, but also excited for her - heading off for a new life, learning to be okay on her own.
… and then I saw that this was the end of season 1, not the entire show, which means there will (most likely) be a season 2 and they’ll get together after all and ugh.
And then I debated whether or not to put it on Tumblr…but I decided it was important. Because in my own way, I can (unfortunately) point out exactly what is wrong with men when they don’t realize how hard it is to be a woman. How we do not have equal opportunities and freedoms in everyday life….
Unfortunately, this story doesn’t surprise me. Remember, guys: no matter how pretty we are, we don’t owe you our time, attention, conversation, or smiles.
Probably unpopular opinion: while I think I understand why this last ep is the way it is, and agree that it’s probably most realistic to what Jane would do if she were real (I hate to even admit that she isn’t)…
… I found it beautiful and lovely and ultimately rather unsatisfying. :(
(Despite being pleased that this show was in the end about Jane’s growth as a person rather than a Big Romantic Relationship, I’m still allowed to wish we had resolution on that, right?)
Well I’ve written and rewritten this post more than 5 times by now.
Mostly because I’ve debated a lot about whether or not post this to begin with. We’ve never really been terribly concrete with our schedule for the sake of the story, and breaking that habit is a bit odd…
Do you intended to grow a bread that rivals the great Alan Moore's?
Until now I had thought Alan Moore’s bread-growing skills were a secret, known only to those who had visited his kitchens and seen the bubbling tubs of sourdough, smelled the soursweet yeasty goodness of the place, watched the tendrils of dough creep along the counter, stroke each other, exchange material and grow higher and further, before being placed into the massive Moore bread ovens. But obviously the secret is now out.
I do not intend to compete in the bread-growing department with Alan Moore, a man whose bread is legendary and unique.
I’ve spent a good chunk of the last day thinking about those first four episodes of The New Adventures of Peter and Wendy. I wasn’t aware of the show as it was working its way through the Kickstarter campaign, so I didn’t really have any expectations.
i want to open a book store that is 24 hours and people can finally go out at like 2am and be like “i just finished the first book in the series i need the next one stat” or if people are just having a stressful night and want to be surrounded by books
My favorite part about this post is that someone understands that it’s calming to be surrounded by books
a book nightclub.
Someone make this happen pls.
Ya’ll have read Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore, right?
Do you remember the ep where Simon droned on about a brain condition that results in the affected person being unable to recognize a person’s face, but recognizing their voice? This is my prediction for the injury to Rochester. He’ll look blankly at Jane, but when she speaks, he will light up with love.
