'get someone who knows what they're doing there'

Can we take a minute and talk about how fantastic Harry’s voice sounds on this song?  It’s rich, it’s not strained, his technique is on point for rock.  his falsetto is clear and pure. The beginning in particular is clean and precise.    His belt at the end is open and fully supported.  His breath control is spot on.  And the little details like the way he transitions from chest voice to falsetto in the bridge on “will we ever learn?” is SO SMART.  He’s using such strong dynamics.  He has grown so much and I’m just so incredibly impressed.  And so incredibly proud.  

  • Aries: You'll be as bright as the sun and make the most difficult choices in your life soon. Chin up, spit the blood, and fight for your beliefs.
  • Cancer: Maybe things seem pretty rough right now. Think about what you want for the long run, maybe it's not what you want now. Where are you in 10 years?
  • Taurus: You're always so nervous and tedious about your work. You know what? If you're trying to impress something or someone to get what you want, maybe it's not for you. Because if you're not doing what you love to impress people, screw that. Do what you want.
  • Gemini: Oh boy. You have no idea. You have such big dreams and so little time. Go with what you want and don't let anybody get in the way of it. You're really never late to anything. There's time, just a limited amount.
  • Leo: Summer down, maybe your dream when you were little won't work. Maybe it will, who knows? The thing is, don't live your life in solitude, find someone to adventure with and show your colors.
  • Virgo: My dear, don't be afraid of society's rules, they're meant to be broken. Prove your point. Be an example. Break the glass.
  • Libra: You've been told what to do and how to do it for too long. Stop obeying and start pioneering your own future. Dream for yourself.
  • Scorpio: You think you have it all figured out don't you? Just know that life throws curveballs all the time. Be ready for anything darling.
  • Sagittarius: Maybe you don't know. Maybe you know. You're in the dark yet you see light. I promise it will become clear for you one day when you probably least expect it.
  • Capricorn: You're ambitious but not supported. I'm sorry. Put yourself in a healthy group of people and environment and you'll grow as fast as time passes.
  • Aquarius: You can not see the future and there are things you won't be able to predict. Stop trying so hard and let go. You'll find your success elsewhere. Don't expect a pretty platter of success to be handed to you.
  • Pisces: You fall but you need to get back up. Don't loose sight of what's important to you and your journey. You've grown so much in this period of time. Keep it up and success will be great.

I don't know if this was ever pointed out before, but right before Zuko is going to be burned during that Agni Kai, his prostrating himself is a form of an extreme apology in Japan called Dogeza. It's as low as a person can get, and they're showing complete submission and reverence to whoever they're prostrating themselves to; it's only performed by someone who's REALLY screwed up. I don't know very much about Japan's culture, but I'm fairly certain that is what Zuko was doing in that scene.

You know, I don’r think anyone has pointed that out to me yet 

It appears pretty similar to Zuko’s bows:

Thanks for the know!

How much do you think someone's environment affects their amount of anxiety and/or depression and what advice do you have for younger people like teenagers who feel powerless to get away from these places when they're experiencing anxiety or depression wherever they are at? I have been a fan of yours for around 6 years and would like to thank you for being a positive role model in my life. Thanks for everything AJ. :) <3

I’ve always struggled with the argument of nature vs nurture. I have no answers, but I know finding my own forms of healthy outlets got me through the worst of situations. Books were a way for me to escape my environment and feel peaceful. Video games helped me feel in control. Search for whatever helps you feel the most capable during times of chaos.

What if kacchan had a crush on someone who's quirk can amplify other quirks and they're pretty popular during team-ups so he just gets really angry and possessive

-Pretty pissed when they flock crush

-Don’t they know they’re his?? (well, since they’re not dating, no)

-His strategy of avoiding it is snatching crush away even before training starts

-If he doesn’t succeed, he’ll sulk the whole exercise

-And he’ll be hellbent on crushing crush’s team

-I mean, he won’t directly do anything to crush themselves

-He’ll just to anything to make the other members of the team lose

-He’s contradictory and I’m not sure he realises it

-He just gets even more impulsive when in love

-Someone help him

Life doesn't start until conscious thought is possible. An embryo ain't a baby. A zygote ain't a baby. Why do you pro life nut jobs get so worked up over human lives until they're out of the womb?

OK first of all you don’t know anything about me or what I do for people outside the womb so maybe shut up. Secondly this whole “life doesn’t begin until conscious thought” thing is pretty arbitrary. What about someone who has no way of communicating due to various developmental disorders? Are they suddenly not alive? What about coma patients? And how conscious of their surroundings is a newborn, anyway? Can I start knocking babies in the head for the first few days or months?

I just know the fans who don't care about Harry are going to use that interview to bash Harry and blame the break on him because they always need to blame someone and like he doesn't deserve that. Those boys were worked into the ground for years and deserved to get to do their own thing and be their own people for a couple years. Make they're own decisions about their careers. The break is what was best at the time and if Harry was the one to initiate it he clearly knew what was best for them.

yes exactly

anonymous asked:

Can I ask how you justify saying that H and L aren't straight? I just thinks it's wrong to ever assume someone's sexuality? And what is the assumption even based on, a bunch of stereotypes or creepily reading into their body language? Harry said he doesn't label himself and Louis has said he's straight, who are you to claim they're lying I really don't get why people think they have the right to speculate on this stuff like just enjoy the music and leave the boys alone

Hi anon!

Are you straight? You’re either straight or a very young queer person who doesn’t know your history.

How do you think gay people (which I’m using as a really broad term in this context, so inclusive of bi- and pansexuality) found each other in the past? How do you think they found each other when they were closeted? Or do you think that gay people only ever had gay bars and/or were never in relationships until they came out?

What you are erroneously lumping together as “a bunch of stereotypes or creepily reading into their body language” is actually queer coding. (Also, may want to check the “creepy” reference. I don’t think you’re aware of how homophobic that is. You’re saying that body language associated with being seen as gay is creepy. Not a good look my friend.) I could easily make an argument that in Hollywood in 2017, “not labeling myself” is pretty fucking clear coding. Also, stars who aren’t out say they’re straight. This is not new. Duh.

It’s likely you’re not picking on queer coding (of which Harry, especially, has partaken in) because you’re straight and/or because so many straight people have co-opted queer coding, in part to present themselves as allies. The co-opting of queer coding by straight people is actually a topic I find myself pretty frustrated with for a variety of reasons, but I’ll save that rant for another day. I will however say that anyone using queer coding in 2017 who isn’t actually queer doesn’t mind being seen as queer (whether because they’re an ally or because they’re selling an image or both, whatever). 

Also, if Harry says he doesn’t label himself, then by you assuming he’s straight, you’re doing the same thing you say shouldn’t be done. In fact, it’s funny how we’re never supposed to assume anything only when it comes to assuming they’re not straight. Your natural assumption–whether you spell it out or not–is that someone is straight and never lying about it. That speaks to your biases.

As for “leaving the boys alone,” well, first, they’re men. Can we please, for the love of God, quit calling them boys? None of them are children. Second, I don’t break the fourth wall, I don’t contact them or their families, I hang out in my tiny blog in my corner of the internet.

Third–and this is another reason I’m assuming you’re probably straight, but I know I could be wrong–for a lot of queer people, especially young and closeted queer people, finding someone they can identify with is really important. And guess what, that often means connecting with someone else who is…closeted and queer. When you say that nobody has a right to speculate someone is gay, you’re saying that gay people, especially gay closeted people, have no right to identify with anyone.

I’m not young, my closeting history is complicated (and written about in other posts). But assuming that famous people aren’t straight has existed for decades. (And funny how often it’s true, too…)

Historically straight people may have speculated as gossip, something salacious. I don’t think the same is true for queer people who speculate, which is probably why my reaction to speculation in 2017 isn’t a knee jerk reaction of “it’s bad, stop it!”

While straight people can just happily sit around and assume everyone else is straight and still have plenty of straight people to admire, crush on, or look up to even if they’re wrong, historically speaking queer people have not been able to do that. And so queer people have speculated, and will continue to speculate, as part of finding people to look up to, identify with, crush on, and admire–in their own way–even if they end up being wrong.

The difference is that historically speaking, queer people speculated knowing they could be wrong. Straight people never had to speculate and just assumed they were right.

Just read about Mazel, an amazing story! But I want to thank you for stressing how important it is for people to not just go around buying wolfdogs. You're right, they do need well trained handlers and its unfortunate that so many must be destroyed because of owners who dont know what they're getting into. Anyways, I adored the story of Mazel, she sounded like a wonderful friend

She really was, but DEFINITELY not an animal anyone could have taken on.  

While I was talking with mom over break, She mentioned that she’d apparently been part of a magic show/travelling circus before the guy died and she and her pup were left at the shelter.  So someone with experience training wild animals did her early-life training for us.  

But yeah, if I were to find a hybrid at the shelter today, I’d be calling the local sanctuary to take care of it.

What I like and dislike about each type
  • Warning: I'm very straightforward with this and aim to be as honest as possible. Also, these are my own perceptions and may not be prominent in all individuals of the type so take it with a grain of salt. With that said, you're always free to send anonymous hate mail in my ask box if you're not happy.
  • What I like about ISTPs: You're too cool. How do you do that nonchalant "I'm effortlessly good at everything" -attitude floating around you? You're also so quick to act in sudden situations, your reflexes are excellent.
  • What I dislike about ISTPs: You do care about things so stop pretending you don't. You fool no one and it's embarrassing to watch. Showing some sentiment doesn't equal being weak, everyone else gets that so why don't you?
  • What I like about ESTPs: How do you notice everything? Of all the types, you're possibly the most observant and objective about your observations. I admire your straightforward way of communicating.
  • What I dislike about ESTPs: You're too competitive. For fuck's sake, it's only a game. Grow up and stop throwing temper tantrums whenever someone's better than you at something.
  • What I like about INTPs: How can you know so much about everything? You're like an information sponge who can glance at an issue and take in the most vital parts in two seconds and then move on to something else that's interesting.
  • What I dislike about INTPs: Your passive and cynical attitude towards life borders ridiculous. You don't get to spend your life putting absolutely zero effort into your ambitions and then mope about how your life is wasting away. It doesn't work that way so grow up and start taking some initiative.
  • What I like about ENTPs: You're ridiculously good at brainstorming. If I run into a wall with something, you guys are the people I'd ask for help in order to find a solution outside the box.
  • What I dislike about ENTPs: Learn how to filter your speech at times. Yeah, freedom of speech and all but it doesn't mean you have to pay absolutely zero attention to what you let out of your big mouth. Some jokes are just in bad taste.
  • What I like about INFPs: You're imaginative and mentally very strong. You have no issue to stand up for something you believe in and God help the person who's in your way of setting things right.
  • What I dislike about INFPs: Everyone is not targeting you in particular and criticism is not always voiced solely for the purpose of offending you. Learn not to take everything so damn personally.
  • What I like about ENFPs: You're so much fun to be around. How can your humor be so out there yet spot on? A social gathering without an ENFP is like a bath without bubbles.
  • What I dislike about ENFPs: Pick up after yourself every now and then. I know mess doesn't probably bother you as much as many other types but it's a part of common courtesy not to leave your stuff around for everyone else to clean. It's disgusting.
  • What I like about ISFPs: You're genuinely a warm and interesting person to be around. Your shyness mixed with your observant nature and thirst for new experiences is very charming.
  • What I dislike about ISFPs: Stop being such a doormat. You have a tendency for self-sacrifice, doing things you don't want to do for people who really don't want or need you to do it for them and then wallow in how much you don't want to do it. This is not the Bible and you're not a martyr so grow a backbone.
  • What I like about ESFPs: You're so set on enjoying life to the fullest. How can you turn everything into a fun experience like that? You're so observant and know how to have fun.
  • What I dislike about ESFPs: Learn the meaning of personal space. I know you're genuinely interested in people but if they wish to be left alone, respect that. Plus, don't get so touchy if someone doesn't want to spend time with you every now and then. It doesn't mean they hate you.
  • What I like about ISFJs: How can you have so much compassion? It's like you instinctively understand everyone around you. I admire the way you withhold judgment when dealing with people.
  • What I dislike about ISFJs: Stop being such a worrywart. The world will not fall apart even if you're not there to take care of everything. Your fussiness can be so damn annoying sometimes.
  • What I like about ESFJs: You're the queen bee. How can you be so popular with so little effort? You know how to make friends and how to handle different people. You're so likable it's almost ridiculous.
  • What I dislike about ESFJs: Stop worrying about conflicts so much. It's not the end of the world to be in bad relations with someone. Not everyone will be your friend, learn to live with that.
  • What I like about ISTJs: You're so dependable. It's programmed in your system to work hard and expect little in return. Your loyalty and dedication is moving.
  • What I dislike about ISTJs: You're too judgmental. Don't jump to conclusions so much and learn how to listen to opposing views. They have a point sometimes, you know.
  • What I like about ESTJs: You're no-nonsense and I admire that. You know how to handle matters impersonally and efficiently. You see what needs to be done and do it.
  • What I dislike about ESTJs: You're too bossy sometimes. Stop measuring other people's worth by how well they perform and learn to cut some slack at times.
  • What I like about INTJs: You set a goal and keep pushing until you make it. You're a true achiever and have excellent self-discipline. You know what you want and if you don't know how to get it, you find out.
  • What I dislike about INTJs: Hold back with the superiority complex a bit won't you? There's a difference between being proud of your accomplishments and just being a smug asshole.
  • What I like about ENTJs: You know how to be smooth. You have strong communication skills and people follow you instinctively. You naturally seem like someone who always knows what they're doing.
  • What I dislike about ENTJs: You're too dominant. You can't control everyone and everything and it's really annoying when you try to do that. Also, keep your jealousy in check, other people's achievements are not indicators of your incapability.
  • What I like about INFJs: You have a unique worldview and see connections other people might miss entirely. Even if not religious, you still have this spiritual aura about you.
  • What I dislike about INFJs: Try to get rid of your special snowflake complex. You're not inherently different from everyone else, you're just about the only person who doesn't realize everyone's quirky in their own way and you're not more so than the others.
  • What I like about ENFJs: How can you be such a good mediator? You're like the best person to be in the middle of two people fighting, you know how to help people compromise and live in harmony.
  • What I dislike about ENFJs: Stop the humble bragging. Seriously, I get that you're proud of your good deeds but making sure everyone knows what a good person you are kinda eats away at the authenticity of it all. Plus it's embarrassing.

megahashi  asked:

What's the best advice you can give someone who's never been to sdcc before? Like how are the lines, which day is the best day to cosplay, etc

Best SDCC pro-tips I’ve picked up over the years:

  • Bring water and snacks and don’t forget to actually drink/eat them. I also usually pack lunch because food is meh inside. The coffee they sell isn’t too bad though.
  • The lines are long. Like really long. Like you will probably never see longer lines in your life. You’re going to be sitting on the ground for very long periods of time so prepare yourself. The company around you is generally pretty great though, so don’t be afraid to strike up conversation.
  • If there’s an event you want to go to and you know it’s going to be popular, you’re going to want to sit in on at least one panel in the room before it to make sure you get inside. 
  • The best day to cosplay depends on your cosplay. If you’re wearing something that is big and bulky and hard to walk around in you’re going to want to wear it on the day where you’re not running all around the convention center. Other than that pretty much any day is good.
  • The lower floor with the booths is always very very packed with people. I recommend tackling it in sessions rather than all at once. 
  • If you have a portable phone charger: bring it. You’ll need it. 
  • Check out lots of things but if you’re not enjoying a panel you’re sitting in on, don’t be afraid to leave. You have a limited amount of time at SDCC and you don’t want to waste it on a bad panel. And there definitely are bad panels. 
  • Most big panels (Hall H, Ballroom 20, etc.) are enjoyable even if you’re not a fan of whatever show/thing the panel is on. You’re also more likely to get free stuff at these. 
  • Overall: have fun, take a breather when you need to, and don’t be afraid to chat with the people stuck in line around you (who knows, it might be me).

I think a YOI blogger is going to kill themselves. I've seen their recent likes and they're all about how to tie a noose knot and all suicidal posts. What do I do? Do I share their blog username so people will reach out to them???

Talk to them, talk to people around them. Suicide is not something to be taken lightly, if this is a serious situation- and it is, this is not a joke, you need to- then you should report them and try to get help. If you are someone who is close to them then talk to them and send them links, if you know someone who is close to them then warn them. Don’t sit back quietly, take action.
I am going to post possibly helpful links and ask for followers to follow suit with other helpful links and tips. I am not some perfect being who knows what to do in all situations, but I will try my best to be of help, so just hang tight buddy I’m here to help if you need it.
