It doesn’t matter It literally doesn’t Comparison is the thief of joy May you always have enough If you don’t, may you have great support Because rising tides lift all ships Unless you’re the worst, then I hope the tide takes you far away

Every time I try building a mobile app, I’m reminded why I hate mobile app development
I don’t understand why the Arrowverse producers want to make a Mia Smoak spinoff when the flashforwards are the most boring parts of arrow seasons 7 and 8

@patio11 what’s wrong with “blogging”?
