Death doesn’t absolve you of being a shitty person throughout your life, it doesn’t grant you a mulligan, or erase the bullshit you built your life around if you were a hateful person, that’s your legacy, so live your life accordingly.
I went to a party once and everyone was supposed to pitch in some money to buy adderall. I had never tried or even heard of it but I was young and stupid so I gave them 20 bucks. Later on, after we all took it, everybody was going crazy and having a good time and I was just sitting on the couch quietly so I googled ‘adderall’ on my phone and learned that it’s used to treat ADHD.
Strong verbs improve your writing in three ways. They help you:
Reduce adverbs: Choosing strong verbs helps you to be specific. You should replace an adverb and a verb with a strong verb if you can. It will improve your writing. Don’t say: “She held on tightly to the rope.” Do say: “She gripped the rope.” Don’t say: “He looked carefully at the documents.” Do say: “He examined the documents.”
Avoid the passive voice: Choose specific, active verbs whenever you can. Don’t say: ‘He was said to be lying by the teacher.’ Do say: ‘The teacher accused him of lying.’
Eliminate wordiness: Strong verbs help you eliminate wordiness by replacing different forms of the verb ‘to be’. They allow you to stop overusing words like ‘is’, ‘was’, ‘are’, and ‘were’. Don’t say: ‘She was the owner of a chain of restaurants.’ Do say: ‘She owned a chain of restaurants.’
If you reduce wordiness, choose specific verbs, and use the active voice, readers will be able to understand you more easily. This is what you want because the reason we write is to communicate.
Friendly reminder that G.B.F. (Gay Best Friend) exploits a film genre created for and by women so cis gay men can throw women and PoC under the bus in order to claim that they’re the Most Oppressed (tm).
andd for women it’s especially lgbtq women, the only recognition of them in the film is propagating the ‘creepy lesbian’ trope, and black women, through the use of the ‘sassy’ stereotype
id like think im an alternative badass girl who doesn’t give a fuck and doesnt live by societys rules, but in reality i do all my homework and never back talk teachers and i say “please” and “thank you” and “sorry” way too much.
