20s 30s

So I’m a cashier at a large hardware store. Some of out products are crazy expensive and have multiple barcodes. I rang up this man’s three items with totaled to $150. He paid and left. 20-30 minutes later he calls, asking for me personally. My head cashier hands me the phone thinking it’s family. This guy starts to chew me out saying that I stole money from him by overcharging him and that he expected me to do something about it. I told him I couldn’t do anything over the phone, and that he needed to come back to the store. He didn’t like that too much. Saying it was an inconvenience, which I understand. But then he started to say that he was coming for me and when he came in he was going to come find me. And that he wanted discounts. I agree only to get off the phone. I talk to my head cashier and she tells me to go to the customer service supervisor and tell her what happened. She pulls up the transaction and compares the prices online to the prices the customer was charged. They match. I start crying because I feel awful when I do something wrong. Plus I was scared of this guy. I get sent outside to garden and I see the customers wife come in. Figure I just missed him. The phone rings and it’s the customer service supervisor calling to tell me that I had accidentally charged him for a case instead of a single product. This all could have been avoided had I payed a bit more attention to my screen, and if this jerk had looked at the total or his receipt. So now there are two customers I will go out of my way to avoid.

20% Hoshido aesthetic
30% Kagero and Oboro are my wifes
50% I dont want Kaze to fight Saizo X(

This is the thing: When you hit 28 or 30, everything begins to divide. You can see very clearly two kinds of people. On one side, people who have used their 20s to learn and grow, to find themselves and their dreams, people who know what works and what doesn’t, who have pushed through to become real live adults. Then there’s the other kind, who are hanging onto college, or high school even, with all their might. They’ve stayed in jobs they hate, because they’re too scared to get another one. They’ve stayed with men or women who are good but not great, because they don’t want to be lonely. They mean to develop intimate friendships, they mean to stop drinking like life is one big frat party. But they don’t do those things, so they live in an extended adolescence, no closer to adulthood than when they graduated. Don’t be like that. Don’t get stuck. Move, travel, take a class, take a risk. There is a season for wildness and a season for settledness, and this is neither. This season is about becoming. Don’t lose yourself at happy hour, but don’t lose yourself on the corporate ladder either. Stop every once in a while and go out to coffee or climb in bed with your journal.

Ask yourself some good questions like: “Am I proud of the life I’m living? What have I tried this month? Do the people I’m spending time with give me life, or make me feel small? Is there any brokenness in my life that’s keeping me from moving forward?”

Now is your time. Walk closely with people you love, and with people who believe. Life is a grand adventure. Don’t get stuck in the past, and don’t try to fast-forward yourself into a future you haven’t yet earned. Give today all the love and intensity and courage you can, and keep traveling honestly along life’s path.

Sometimes I think it’s weird that Zenyatta is as young as he is, cause he always seems so much more mature than you’d think a 20 year old would be, but then I see his emotes and

You Have Me

SIMON

Every time he casts a spell, I think, you have me.

When he gets excited over a stuffy old piece of classical literature, he has me.

His drowsy grey eyes blinking down at me as he says, “I choose you.”

You 100% have me.

Baz Pitch will own my ass until the day he dies. Or I die. He’s convinced he’s immortal but, to be honest, he gets the flu more than I do now that we’ve moved in together. 

London is teeming with illnesses but apparently Pitches can’t deign to use Germ-X.

More on the topic of this

So, I’m actually really upset we didn’t get any Keith and Lance scenes in relation to Keith being Galra.  I’m actually really upset on how few Lance scenes their were in general but overall I’m happy about the season, it was good.

Anyway, that doesn’t relate.  So in the first part i was talking about Lance being Altean/a decendant of the orignal Blue Paladin, but i made a comment about how Lance could actually be the last Blue Paladin and I wanted to talk more on why I think that its possible.   


I don’t have many points that could solely be read as ‘lance is the paladin’ but everything I’ve mentioned previously (on the other post) works to support this point.  Lance not being surprised in episode one, his defensiveness over his ears (because he’s hiding their real shape), the way he seems to know what he’s doing and the way he already has a strong bond with Blue. 


The main scene that really sparked this idea for me was the scene where Keith asks Coran about the previous Blue Paladin.  If Lance overheard that it’s more likely he overheard everything but his only focus was that Keith was interested in Blue.  To me that sounded alot like Lance was changing the subject.  Why change the subject?  Because Lance doesn’t want Keith to know who the previous Blue Paladin was.  

This makes only minor sense if Lance and the Paladin were related, because what could Keith really get from that?  But if Lance was the previous Blue Paladin Coran said something along the lines of ‘the blue paladin was altean, actually lance is a lot like him’ that could raise some questions Lance might not be able to brush off easily.


There’s also when Shiro reveals that Zarkon was the orignal Black Paladin.  Lance is the only one to be like ‘what wait’ and Keith’s response is to tell him it was obvious.  It could be another moment of Lance being slow like with Pidge’s gender however his reaction is incredibly tame, espically compared to that.  So I think it’s more likely Lance already knew that, he just didn’t want the others to know he knew.

And why?

We’ll get to that in a second.

First lets mention Lance the Actor.  In s2e2 Lance annouces he’s a great actor.  This could be a moment of bragging Lance or just a comment to make his failure seem funnier.  But if Lance really is the previous Paladin than yeah, he’s an awesome actor because no one can tell and maybe this line is him trying to show off to people who have no idea what the situation is and therefore won’t be able to reveal him.  (Although, really, you won’t want to hint at it to anyone but remember guys this is still Lance, just older).


But again, why?  Why lie about any of this?  Surely if Lance is an older Paladin than it would be better to tell the others so he can help them with his cool orignal Paladin tricks.  

The reason is simple.

You know, the original paladins fought hundreds of battles together, side-by-side.  They were like a pack of yalmors linked at the ears.

It’s stressed from the beginning that to be a paladin is to be close to the other paladins.  Lance and Zarkon would have been friends once, good friends.  They would have fought side by side, be sworn to protect each other no matter the cost to their own life.

Would you like to tell a bunch of people trying to fight an evil warlord and save the universe that said warlord used to be your friend?


I can think of another reason Lance wouldn’t’ve wanted to tell them and it explains why he’s not a total badass like Zarkon is.  What if Lance didn’t get to pilot Blue because he earned it in some Blade of Marmora style trail.  I give to you, Lance was the son of a rich and powerful family on Altea.  Getting Lance to fly the Blue Lion was a poltical move.  Lance was not at all trained to fight in such a weapon but he was able to bond with Blue and therefore more than suitable for the polictal task.

Lance doesn’t tell the others because he wants to earn his place on the team, not feel like a chess piece moved around the board to better the king. 


Except, Lance doesn’t feel like he’s earnt his place on the team, does he?  And that could certainly lead to an interesting situation.  

But more on that later.
