.lol that was like a year ago

Duhokis have such a weird accent and they’re not even that far from us Amedis.
We call spoons kefçik, they say kaçik.
We call power/electricity kehreb they say kareb.
We call home mal and they say that, too, but they pronounce it like “mall” in English whereas we pronounce it like the world “mole” (kinda) in English.
I don’t even remember what they call a tail, but we call it dîv and they say something waaaay different.
Their entire accent in general is so easily recognizable but every time we go to Duhok, literally everyone asks if we’re Amedi because of the way we speak.

There’s a lot more. I wish I would’ve written them down, but I didn’t. These are just things I hear my uncle’s wife, who’s a Doski, say lol. She’s been in Amediye for almost a decade now but she still has a strong Duhoki accent.

I really hate that Les Miserables has become the new cringe fandom flavour of the month. Not only because I hate cringe culture with the burning power of a thousand suns, but because it all seemed so important back in 2013, all these kids looking at one of the world’s most famous books with a critical eye, celebrating the sympathetic portrayals of those still even now downtrodden in society, talking about history, talking about Victor Hugo’s perceptions of gender and race, seeking to fix them…

All gone now, gone in favour of “lol, remember a few years ago when everyone was really obsessed with some dumb book” sort of things. I don’t know if it’s people frantically seeking to disavow whatever their younger selves were passionate about, because passion is uncool; or the same strand of I’m Not Like Other Girls -ism that lurks in every corner of every fandom. But I wish it’d go away.

I know I haven’t made a personal post in a while. Just thought I’d let whoever cares know that all is well. Been busy with extended family stuff.

Yesterday was neat… Whenever we have these extended family things, my great uncle John, my grandma’s twin brother, mentions that he wants to see me do my magic tricks. (I got hooked on magic after watching David Blaine’s first special, I recorded it on VHS… And spent hours figuring out slieghts pre internet access lol)

Anyway… About 8 years ago, I showed them all some stuff, and haven’t really practiced since then. And he brings it up every time he sees me. I usually decline, I haven’t learned anything new, and am incredibly rusty. Plus I feel weird doing silly little tricks for people I’ve looked up to all my life. My family is very hard working, a lot are farmers who have never really had time to pursue silly hobbies like magic or comedy or writing or any of the things that I do. So I feel like a bit of a fool with my silly little things.

But uncle John still keeps asking. Recently, his health has been slipping. He’s had a stroke or two, and his memory is going. And still he remembers my silly tricks. It’s incredibly touching.

Well yesterday I really thought about it, and picked up a deck, and did the 3 card tricks I can still remember. For the whole extended family. They went ok, not great. But it was really nice to see them all smile and laugh. Made me feel pretty great.

That story isn’t really why I started this post. But it’s what happened. I often don’t know what I’m about to write when I start. I think what my subconscious, or whatever I’m tuning into that’s making me write words right know wants to say is this…

Pursue the little things that make you happy. The little art forms. Like writing, drawing, magic, singing, dancing, wood carving, whatever. Pursue them, but don’t keep your little talents to yourself. Share that shit. Sure, you might think you suck. But you just the act of sharing a little piece of yourself is enough to brighten each other’s day. And it is this interconnectivity that we crave from each other. The sharing of little bits and pieces that can make a connection with someone that they’ll remember and think about when they think of you. Not the thing itself, but the feelings exchanged when you shared it with them.

So perform your silly trick for a friend, write someone a poem. Sing a song. Dance. Go make a connection.

Tokyo Ghoul Abecedary

↳  P  →  Pierrot

The Clowns (Pierrot) are a group of ghouls with a mysterious goal or purpose. Its members primarily wear clown-themed masks and state their intentions are to “have the last laugh.” There is no data on their member amount, activity area, nor goals in the CCG database. It is stated that the Clowns do not usually group up, but when they do, they demonstrate exceptional teamwork.

hey remember after iron man 2 came out and everyone was like “lol tony and I are one, tony’s so relatable” and then when the first avengers came out and everyone was like “aww tony didn’t mention himself in the super power lineup poor baby :( I relate tho” and then Tony’s ptsd and depression stopped being so cute and relatable and starting being debilitating and his anxiety wasn’t a quirk it was an untreated mental illness that gave him hyper-paranoia and made him make questionable decisions and then he stopped being everyone’s quirky fave and became tumblr’s scapegoat and the embodiment of all that is evil because “remember how tony sold weapons, remember when tony was mean to Steve on the helicarrier” even though you guys completely ignored that like three years ago lol remember that those were good times

Hermione’s screams echoed off the walls upstairs, Ron was half sobbing as he pounded the walls with his fists…

ELIAS: When did you get together?

EVEN: (Omg ok so I saw him at the first day of school but talked to him the first time on the 7th october around 19.20 and our first kiss - after we had an almost kiss at the 21st october was on the 30th october when we were supposed to go to a halloween party and broke into a pool and we spent the whole weekend together cuddling and being cute but after that it was confusing and our first time doing more than kissing was on the 25th of november - he is in my phone under mannen i mitt liv since the 26th btw - but id say really really together are we since Isak told me ‘du er ikke alene’ which meant more than ‘i love you’ at the time and that was the 9th of december) Like half a year ago or something.
