Completely out of context, I thought that the love of geometric shapes was in reference to your icon haha
that is not a muted color palette but yes my icon is that way because i love geometry

fwiw on the phone call thing, i have the exact same problem ever since i was a kid. i find the single best thing for it is to force yourself to do it asap, and get comfortable doing it; that way each time is easier, cause theres that "ive done this before" feeling that gets stronger each time. absolutely understand the feeling regardless though!!
usually what i do is write out a script first before i call, and that always helps me. also i consult family members and/or have them write the script for me.
that is a highly illegal level of cute desist immediately (i am the cute police)
you can’t stop me, i’m an outlaw and this is the wild west
Looks of flustered attraction u mean
hey well one of the times i was getting my hair cut super short, the lady was going on and on about how pretty i was and i was the most beautiful american kid
I'm fine with bugs as long as they are not in my place of living and are not on my person. Go little sow bug GO!
the pill bug and the sow bug were neighbors under this rock in my backyard and i picked up the sow bug at first and he was the one who dunked himself into the milk, but i went and put him back under the rock and grabbed his neighbor, the pill bug, and he was the one gorging himself on powdered sugar
I hate bugs but you're making them sound fucking cute Stop that Stop that right now
THEY’RE VERY SMART LITTLE CRITTERS THAT JUST LIKE DIRT
Oceania is the region, it often gets treated the same way as a continent, like when games have servers it's north america, europe and oceania. As an Australian we've never really gotten past that we are a country, island and continent so idk about those other ones but aren't continents about tectonic plates or something because we're all on the same plate yeah.
you’re all on the same plate but you’re on the same plate w/ se asia as well but apparently it’s what continental shelf you’re on, which has little to do with tectonic plates (india and the rest of asia are on different tectonic plates but they are on the same continental shelf and are part of the same continent)
discovered, just googling in english and then spanish, that in english the continents are divided differently than in spanish.. that might be a source of confusion? it seems the model that's taught in english speaking countries is the "7 continents" model (with australia as a continent instead of oceania and north and south america divided, including central america in nort america), while over here we learn the 5 or 6 continents model.
yeah! exactly. although there’s some confusion on the central america and north america thing.
TALKIN BOUT GEOGRAPHY, (different anon) some people dont even know that hawaii is a state or even the more recent revelation that alaska isnt an island. such poor poor uneducated americans out there...
our education is shit
greatest country on earth *shoots rifles into the air*
to be fair americans aren't good at geography in general. A lot of people i know don't even know where all the states are located let alone where all the countries are located.
I PERSONALLY BELIEVE THAT U.S. AMERICANS ARE UNABLE TO DO SO BECAUSE UH SOME PEOPLE OUT THERE IN OUR NATION DON’T HAVE MAPS AND UH I BELIEVE THAT OUR EDUCATION LIKE SUCH AS IN SOUTH AFRICA AND UH THE IRAQ EVERYWHERE SUCH LIKE AS AND I BELIEVE THAT THEY SHOULD OUR EDUCATION OVER THERE IN THE U.S. SHOULD HELP THE U.S.
Well, I think the problem all of this entails is that, as a consquence of uh, calling yourselves that (and a coupla other things about education), the mayority ends up thinking everything revolves around... yourselves? So you end up not having any idea of where's Chile, what's Paraguay, etc. I've seen the people with my own eyes. Not saying YOU yourself don't know, you've demonstrated already that you do know many things I guess... but the mayority of English speakers don't...
honestly, i don’t think that has anything to do with the word ‘america’ and has everything to do with imperialism and self-absorption. the reason that ppl from the usa revere the word ‘america’ so much is that, to them, it refers to their country and they’re rabidly nationalistic (yes, i’m using a broad generalization for the sake of an argument). it’s not the other way around; americans aren’t rabidly nationalistic and self-absorbed because their country is called ‘america’. if the country was called ‘fucktruck’, they still wouldn’t know where chile was.
while they're part of the same continent, you don't call people from papua new guinea "australians", nor do you new zealanders. they're papua new guineans and kiwis (or maori if they're of new zealand's native people) respectively
well in a similar way, in english, we don’t call mexicans “americans”. we’d call them north americans, even though in another language, they DO live in “america”. it’s semantics.
"exaggerating a cause that never mattered to them until someone told them it did". wow anon. as if. you obviously are either from the usa or europe lmao, you literally don't care but anyway. anyway.
i do know some people like that, that made it a huge issue because someone told them about it, but didn’t understand the underlying reasons why and insisted i could never call the USA ‘america’, but yes they were from the USA, and making an issue out of something they didn’t understand
however, it is an issue in other parts of the americas, but i don’t think it has to be. i mean, there’s a lot of cultural insensitivity from the US’s side, but it really is just a language barrier issue
