TWENTY THINGS ONLY A FLATMATE WOULD KNOW
(as requested in q/7053680)
1. I take lone night walks. Some nights I'm gone for
forty-five minutes. Some nights I'm gone for two hours.
But if I'm gone for longer than three, send a search
2. I play too many instruments, and will try to fit them all
together somewhere. Otherwise they'll be lonely! :(
3. I only use my gluten-free diet to my own benefit.
Don't wanna eat that? I'm
gluten-free. Otherwise, give me gluten.
4. But it makes me sick and my skin /wretched/ so
sometimes I try to stick to it, but also soMETIMES I WANT
BREAD THAT DOESN'T HAVE THE TEXTURE OF SHXT.
5. I have a carrot onesie that
I will wear. Every movie
6. Sometimes I have this thing called sensory overload, and
please, p l e a s e do not touch me
during this. Or turn on the lights. I might freak out and run
away and get hurt (and I have finally learned that my
safety matters). It's like a panic attack
that every sense adds to every second my mind processes
something external. I promise I don't hate you.
7. Anyone you want can come 'round, at any time. Unless
I'm in the shower.
8. I love YouTube. I l o v e Y o u T u b e.
It's one half of my support system. The other half is my
basketball shoes--they were BUILT for my ankles, you
9. I play video games when I'm upset, and when I'm
happy, and when I'm completely numb. I really like it
when you watch me.
10. I will sort the laundry. I will wash the laundry. I will
transfer the laundry from the washer to the drier. BUT I WILL
NOT FOLD THE LAUNDRY. (Unless you do a terrible job, and then
I will refold the laundry.)
11. I go on rants about gender norms regularly. Bear with me.
Even better, add and agree!
12. I watch Wizard of Oz a lot, and it makes me super
emotional. I don't know why. And I know a lot about the
making of and the actors and story and such. Don't make
fun of me. Or Judy Garland. I will end you.
13. I don't cry. Sad movie? Nope. Favorite book stolen?
Nope. Breakup? Nope. Death in the family? Probably not.
Punched in the nose? Maybe.
14. Birthdays are a big thing.
15. My nightmares can get really bad, and sometimes I'll
sit/lay down on the floor by your bed to feel better. But I
won't ever wake you up.
16. If you're dating an axshole, I will tell you.
17. I wear boxers. Shorts, briefs, whatever. Not always with
decent coverage. Sxck it up, buttercup. I have great
18. I'm OCD. I really am. But I've trained myself not
to mess with YOUR stuff. And I need affirmation about that
because it is /so/ hard.
19. I'll cook for you. I'll bake for you too, if I
don't eat everything first.
20. I'll always be bugging you about getting a bunny. I
just want a fxcking bunny.
