On one hand, I want to watch the films referenced in Homestuck before my next reread.
On the other hand, that would mean suffering through the original Ghostbusters when the one time I tried watching it I made it like two thirds of the way through before I had to stop watching that unfunny mess.

Things I wish people would tell me:

It's okay to be queer and not be some counter-cultural revolutionary. It doesn't invalidate you or make you any less of who you are, and it doesn't mean you don't belong.
