5 great years of my life

anonymous asked:

I don't know how to start, so I'll just start with, what I know. When I was thirteen I got a boy wig,when i first put it on and looked in the mirror I felt... confident, for the first time in my life I felt great! And since then I have went through episodes where I would put the wig on, hide my cupcakes and smile. I don't know if I'm transgender or genderfluid, right now I've decided to cut off my hair it took like 4-5 years to grow. I'm a confused teenager,so asking for help. What should I do?

Feeling confidence when challenging gender roles is an incredible first step for anyone, congratulations! If you want to cut your hair, that’s also a super cool leap towards being happier in your case. Every time you think about that wig, or put it on, it can reaffirm that how you feel is real, and might not go away. No matter what you decide to do, the LGBTQ+ community and the mods here are always there to support you!

A brief tweetstorm about my dad’s Union job and how it benefited me through the years.

Transcript:

I have my dad’s 25-year Union ring. UAW 699 out of Saginaw, MI. So proud to have grown up in a union family. 1/

When my little sister was born, she was premature and sick as a result. My dad’s Union won health benefits helped keep her alive and safe 2/

When we were both young, we got sealants on our teeth & regular Dental checkups. We wouldn’t have been able to afford it w/out insurance 3/

When I was in elementary school I was depressed and miserable. My parents were able to afford to get me mental health care, thank you UAW 4/

At Xmas, we went to a show where all the kids got toys at the end. Some kids, it was the best toy they got that year. guess who did that? 5/

My mom only ever had to work part-time at a job she liked, and my dad came home at a reasonable hour every night. Thank you unions! 6/

In his 40s, my Dad decided he wanted to change careers. He went to school, he’s now an electrician & happy & still in the Union 7/

My life is measurably better because unions got my dad a living wage, great benefits, career mobility, and more. 8/

We lived in a nice place, went to good schools, my sister’s getting her PhD & I have a JD. And big picture, it’s because my dad is Union 9/

Don’t get me wrong, I know unions aren’t perfect. But they are sure as fuck better than the alternative. Solidarity&Brotherhood y'all 10/10

New Studyblr! 

Hey there! I’m Elin, and I just decided to make a studyblr on my summer break (?!??!). Why you ask? 

So, I’m about to become an engineering student in two months. I haven’t studied for 3 years, thus I’m about to refresh my mind with a couple of summer courses in math and programming this summer.

I’m doing 600 pages of math in 50 days over the summer break, while working and having a life. I hope having a studyblr will help me stay productive! 

I really like following all the studyblr and I’m looking forward to be apart of the community! Hope you’d like to follow me during my upcoming 5 years of studies. I hope you have a great day! :) 

anonymous asked:

Hi Chekhov! I've been working many miles from home for a year now. Before that, I was away from home for school for 5 years. When I started working, it finally hit me that I actually missed the idea of home. My friends, even my family (I have some problems with them, which motivated me to not return, but I still cherish them). I just feel very isolated now. Do you ever feel homesick?

Hey! Thanks for being patient. I know I took a long time to answer this. I was thinking of how to explain it.

My gut reaction was actually to say “No, I’m sorry. I actually don’t ever get homesick.” Because… the truth is, I kind of don’t. I am one of those people that doesn’t… miss people? 

Sounds weird? Yes, maybe. I’m not sure how else to explain it. I am very much a fan of people, in general. And I have many people I love. But I don’t really experience the hallmark version of “homesickness” that I am familiar with. 

HowEVER, upon re-reading your ask, I think I might understand what you’re going through, despite being so negative at the onset. 

Let’s take it from the top.

When I was 10, my mother and I moved from our home country (Russia) to America to live there. It was my first big international flight. It was my first trip to America. I was excited, as only 10 year olds could be, because most 10 year olds lack the necessary foresight to realize what a big fucking change this was going to be. 

It was a fun thing for me.

For about a month.

And then, for the next 3 months it WASN’T fun as the real-world consequences of living 8,784 kilometers away from my grandparents, having to learn English, and going to school with kids who all thought my accent was funny (but not in a good sort of way) all crashed down on me. 

So, in a way, I was homesick.

Ok, I was just… homesick. I came home from school, curled up under my desk and cried. 

Obviously, this did not last forever. Eventually I adjusted. 

But, I think because of my crash-course in separating myself from the experience of bone-crushing isolation, my view of what was “normal” became skewed. For example, I knew (in theory) that it was normal to see your relatives fairly often. However, since we only saw ours every 4-5 years I grew accustomed to just NOT having people I liked in my life. 

(I’m going somewhere with this, I promise, stay with me.)

Anyway, that thing you said… ? About not being on great terms with family? I GET that. I get it HARD. 

When I finally left for college to live alone, it was almost entirely motivated by my desire to escape those issues. To me, being by myself was not a scary adult growing up experience. Running away and being alone was just the most logical solution to the problem. 

At that time, I moved to be about an hour away from my parents. I rarely visited. I felt no desire to. I felt alone, and that was just a relief and nothing short of it. 

In fact, I took this a step above and fled to ANOTHER country, because obviously the entertainment of not being able to speak, read or write the language of the country you’re living in is just irresistible. 

And I thought “damn, I’m a pro at this!” 

I was so used to the concept of being alone and out of my element that honestly, I never even considered it a real problem.

But the fact that I didn’t feel the strain of isolation doesn’t mean it didn’t have an effect on me.

I think I had psyched myself up for being such an untouchable person that I forgot to actually look back and check whether I was as tough as I imagined myself to be.

Because to be honest, yes.

Yes I do get homesick.

And the problem is… I don’t know where ‘home’ is anymore.

And this didn’t start when I got to Japan. I felt this way in America… and I felt this way in Russia, every time I went to visit. There was a tugging sense of not belonging… And the realization, at the same time that, even if I DID go back to the place I wanted to be, I could never feel “at home” there either. 

In fact, I think “homesickness” is not longing for a place as much as a time. 

Maybe we have fond memories of home. The feeling of loneliness is the byproduct of us remembering good things. It’s not something that’s a function of being in a different place as much as it is just a product of… growing up. Changing. Realizing that things are complicated, and wishing to go back to a time when things were LESS complicated. It’s a defense mechanism.

.

I think I stopped feeling homesick again when I realized that home will never be a place I can actually go back to - at least, not physically. 

It can only be something that I can go to through a photo album. Or when I’m laying in bed and, thinking, before I open my eyes “that sounds just like our summer house in Siberia…” and feeling my heart jump to my throat right before I force myself to remember I’m not there anymore. Or when I lay back in the grass and look up at the sky so I can’t see the edges and think “I don’t know where I am right now.”

(that’s my grandpa! this is an important photo for me. the feeling of this photo is not something i can feel again if I end up in front of that window. It’s a small fragment of ‘home’ lost in time, untouchable except in my memory.)

I suppose the important thing that I got from all of this (and I’m not saying you have to think about it that way!) is that home is just a place in your mind, and you can visit it whenever you want.

And as for the feelings of loneliness and homesickness? They’re VALID! They’re normal and honestly, you SHOULD feel them! It means you have good, safe memories to go back to. 

Try not to be too hard on yourself. Even if your relationship with your family is complicated, it’s ok to miss them. It’s ok to feel isolated. It’s hella stressful, and you are understandably going through a lot of stuff! 

Whatever happens from now on, you are HERE and you can make NEW memories and make a new home. And maybe sometime down the line, you’ll think back to NOW and think of that as home.

[march study challenge] • 21/03/17

Day 21: one 2017 study resolution

I created this studyblr with 3 days to go until the new year, so I had a new years’ resolution in mind when I made it. I wanted my final year of school to be a year of growth and good memories, and so I decided that my 2017 new years’ resolution (study related I guess?) would be to work hard but enjoy myself - I wanted to make sure that this year I would never lose sight of the fact that my marks don’t mean everything. I used to always set store by the scores on my test papers and since then I’ve learnt that that’s not a great way to go about things - life is so much more than the time you got full marks in English or the time you failed a maths exam. I still study my butt off for exams and I enjoy the validation of my efforts when I get good marks in return, but I’ve stopped regarding bad marks as a sign of failure or a crushing disappointment - instead, I see them in new light as an opportunity for change and improvement. And I promise that these scores won’t mean anything 5, 10, 15 years into the future. Your self-worth is not defined by your marks, but what is in your heart.

phuonguyennn  asked:

i follow you on insta and im such a fan of indi!! like!! oh!! my!! gosh!! do tell more abt her im all heart eyes over her

Oh my gosh YES. You don’t have to ask me twice! (bonus puppy pictures included)

She’s named after Indiana Jones, obvs. She’s 5 years old. She’s one of the great loves of my life. Apparently she’s a cocker spaniel but she’s so much like a miniature Golden Retriever it’s ridiculous. She’s SO smart, she has the basics down but I know she’s sharp as a tack. She’s incredibly cheeky and likes to back chat me all the time. She grumbles a lot. We have many conversations. She’s fierce and full of beans. She’s always off at day care whilst I’m working and loves her walkers (and also enjoys taking her toys with her - it’s the retriever in her). Everyone who meets her falls in love with her too. She’s loves stealing shoes and the mail - mostly because she just likes to strut around holding them. Beware your socks though, she will destroy them. My house is a sock graveyard. 

And above all else she is the snuggliest little ball of fluff and love, and I love her with all my black heart <3

Here’s some tips for writing poetry:

1) You don’t always  have to rhyme with the next word, instead you can use a word that fits into the ryhtym and compliments the last.
Experiment with different styles of poetry and go out of your comfort zone on purpose, trust me it will help.


2) If you’ve been running out of ideas try these few tips to help you start writing again: try an image prompt, pick a theme and run with it, join tumblr writing competitions or writing competitions in general, pick a random sentence or a sentence of your choice in a book and write a poem about it.


3) Use stream of conciousness writing to write a poem (Stream of conciousness is a writing style where you let your writing flow without pausing to critisize or think about how the writing should sound you write without stopping if you can help it)
Trust me doing this will generate so many ideas! I had someone tell me that one of my stream of consciousness poems could be made into many poems…so it’s great for ideas.


4) Keep a notebook wherever you go, you never know when a idea good or bad will pop in your head.
Keep every poem you write even if it’s bad poetry one day you can look back on it to see how you’ve improve or you can possibly rewrite one of your old poems to showcase how you’ve improved.
For me it was fun looking back to my early years of writing and to see how verbose I was .


5) Write about what’s hard, whatever in your life that is hard if you write about it in poetry so much burden can be lifted off your shoulders.
With poetry you have a voice loud and colourful.


6) What do you want to do with your poetry? Think about it for a second.
Do you want to make a poetry book?
Do you want to submit to a publication with your poetry?
DO you want to spread a certain message?
DO you write for fun?
Do you want to help others with your poetry?
Finding out what it is you want to achieve and will help you create a path to self-fulfillment.


7) Practice rhyming with the last word for as long as you can in a new poem.
Never force out a rhyme it just won’t sound good enough.


8)It can be hard to come up with ideas for writing poetry and it is easy to get stuck while writing a poem so here’s what can help: if you  get stuck while writing a poem think of a word that rhymes with the last and see if you can make it fit your poem, then continue the narrative and if I can’t find a word to rhyme with the previous verse I make a new verse and rhyme it with the line before that.
Here’s an example:
When I look at the sky
I see clouds floating by
The sky bright blue
I see your face was drawn
I thought that we were through
But now this cloud makes me remember you.


9) Not all poetry has to rhyme, in fact it’s fine if it doesn’t.
What's more important is the rhythm in the piece of poetry and sticking to the overall feel or theme of the piece.


10) My final piece of advice when it comes to poetry is to share and build a fan base but save your special poems for yourself or if you’re interested or incline to a publishing house.
Prompts can really help when you’re stuck in a writing block, message me if you want free prompts just tell me how many you need and I’ll pm them back to you free of charge.
Poetry tells a story even if it isn’t a novel, so never forget that you have the tools to change, help and make a difference with your writing!

Top 5 sexy characters in Haikyuu!! ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Thirsty anons are gonna be my legacy I’m so proud of all of you really. Come on, LET’S BRING SEXY BACK!  

1. Kuroo. Well, of course. Try to find a person who’s immune to his charm…right….YOU CAN’T. I’m repeating myself for the umpteenth time here but…I mean…look at him. He is not the most beautiful boy but sure as hell he was designed to be the sexiest. The illegal bedhead, the smirk, the cat eyes, the long neck, THE ABS, THE LEGS…EVERYTHING. He does…things…to us…don’t lie to me…

2. Iwaizumi. ARMS ARMS ARMS. GIVE ME ALL THE ARMS. Damn the boy truly is the definition of gorgeous and I’ll never forget that iconic night we all lost our shit over him in casual clothes. Oikawa you lucky bitch keep him close before they’ll steal him from you. (Special mention to fic!Iwaizumi and his abs and his caramel skin and his insane…skills…)

3. Bokuto. If you though I wouldn’t put my favorite owl even in this top five you’re delusional. I know he’s not the canon definition of sexy but there’s something in the harsh way he speaks, in his always demanding attitude, that smile that is somewhere between boyish and wolfish that make him truly irresistible to me (plus he canonically has the best ass in Haikyuu he deserves to be on the podium)

4. Semi Eita. That tongue thing he does. Thank you for you attention.

Yes!  I’m a professional past life oracle :3 I’ve been doing this almost 10 years!

Past life reading is done from your photo. In every reading 3-5 lives pop out and they’re all detailed. Below is an example of the reading, given to one of my clients. This covers one life description:

Second life is as a woman, most likely in England or Germany or somewhere around that are in Europe. You love literature and read a lot, almost anything you can get your hands on. Because you have always been reading and because your family put a great value on your education when you were a child, you are very good spoken, intelligent and witty also if needed. In your teenager years you’re already an intelligent, fine lady, who can keep up with conversation with men if such situation arises. Honestly speaking you are more educated and intelligent of many subjects than majority of the men due your natural curiosity and hunger for books. You simply love to be surrounded by them and get more knowledge. For you the world is a place of many wonders.

Like in that Chinese man’s life, you are somehow interested in human rights and other similar subjects in this life time. I think you might be one of the first women you 100% support the idea that women should be allowed to vote, but this thing doesn’t happen in your life time. At least I have such a feeling that you won’t get to see that happening, but you are living in the era when thoughts of women’s rights are surfacing around Europe – in small, rather underground intellectual groups, but anyway.

I think you are also supporting kids’ rights and it shocks you how badly factories and other places treat their child workers. Anyone saying that you are being just hysteric or something similar, you quote the latest scientific findings or psychological theories to support your visions. You are a woman who always have some evidence to support her views, as you never believe in anything without some evidence behind it. Just someone saying “I’ve noticed it is like this so it must be true” is not enough for you.

You are childfree yourself, but not because you’ve wanted it. You are unable to become pregnant (and you do scare many men away by your intelligence and a personality, because you can have serious, deep conversations and most of the men with similar intelligent level are just looking for a servant, not an equal partner). You do meet a wonderful dark-haired man in a pretty suit: a man, who is intelligent and curious like you are. You can have temper, while he himself is mostly calm and composed, though he will slash out too if needed. He becomes sort of like the solid rock, a solid foundation, for you, and he supports your reading 100%. He enjoys talks with you and the fact that he can ponder serious issues with you and have an equal chatting partner. He admired and adores you from the bottom of his heart. You two are rather private when it comes in love and not very cuddly, but you enjoy most the reading and chatting time together, or long, peaceful strolls together. You two make a very prominent couple and it’s hard NOT to notice you two.

For your husband it is completely alright that you both are childfree and he doesn’t miss a life as a father. He has been looking for an equal partner without need to “tone down” to a role of a husband and a father only. He has feared that he’d end up into a marriage where his role is just to bring money for his family and support them financially. He would have been so sad because of that. He’s utterly happy you aren’t like that and loves the life you two have together, because it offers him change to keep up with his single life style when it comes to such things as intelligence, science, readings, studies and chats. He’d bore to dead if he had to talk about nappies and family problems!

Those people, who don’t like you, say nastily that the fact you can’t have children must be a sign there’s something badly wrong with you (because a woman isn’t normally as “insane” as you are) or that it’s a God’s will for someone who tries to climb up the ladders to be equal to a man. Sometimes these words hurt you, and you complain to your husband that “If I was a man, anything I said wouldn’t be treated as non-sense.” Your husband always supports you in any cause or topic that is dear to your heart. He sees that you work directly from your heart’s calling and he happily offers his aid to you. I actually think you husband is either a lawyer or knows a lot about law, so he can often support your visions with legal evidence.  


Sometimes the information of your life is A LOT longer (I’ve channeled 3 pages information for one life only), but this is average length of a past life. The reading contains 3-5 life descriptions and the fee is 100 euro (around 100 USD). Payment happens via Paypal when the reading is ready.

airakt  asked:

Hello, lovely. Could you do your Top 5 Tobio relationships, please? (As in friendships, with coaches, rivalries, etc.)

Of course my bean, I’m always happy to talk a little about Kageyama, since I don’t have the chance to do it so often!

1. With Hinata. Simply, it’s the most important relationship of the whole series. If they just could tone down all this soulmates extraness probably I’ll stop crying about them every single day. I said everything that needs to be said about why I love their relationship the most in the top 5 reasons why I ship kagehina, but even if we take the ship aside, it’s undeniable how Hinata is hands down the most important person for Kageyama. He’s the one who pushed him to improve, to open up, to have faith in others again. The moment they met Kageyama’s world changed completely. He’s not just his friend, he’s his partner and that’s beautiful.

2. With the Karasuno team in general. When Kageyama joined Karasuno, he was like a hurt wild animal, so aggressive just because he was trying to desperately protect himself. He never had a team that truly cared about him and was convinced that he always had to do everything alone because he knew nothing but rejection, even when he tried to ask for help. But just some months with a team, a family, like Karasuno helped him change. And now here we have him, our beautiful blueberry who’s giving tosses to literally everyone, he’s accepting pieces of advice and being subbed for Sugawara, he learned to trust and to rely on others and is constantly improving to be the best setter possible, to his favorite spiker and to the rest of the team. Karasuno is just not his team, it’s his home

Originally posted by volleygifs

3. With Sugawara. Suga is such a fundamental presence for Kageyama and he’s his first true supportive senpai, almost a sort of life mentor, more than a playing one. Kageyama uses Suga as his inspiration and tries to act like he does (like in that weird smile) because he thinks he’s the perfect example of what would have a positive effect on his teammates. He wants to be as good person as Suga is and that’s probably the cutest thing.

4. With Tsukishima. How is it possible for the two of them to have such a perfect deadly-point-machine kind of sync on the court and then be at each other’s throat the exact moment the action is over? I guess we’ll never know. Regardless, their rivalry truly gives me life, I love how they constantly challenge each other and if we look back we can all see how much the two of them have grown. We can expect great things from this two.

Originally posted by mitsutada

5. With Oikawa. Oh, here’s the controversial one. When I think about Kagayama’s relationship with Oikawa, my heart always squeezes a little because it makes me…so sad. Something of the kid looking at Oikawa from the stands with eyes full of wonder is still there, even after all these years, even after how badly Oikawa treated him. Oikawa is still the first person Kageyama goes to for help, is still the best and scariest player of them all for him. Kageyama still respects him so much. I think that deep inside he’ll forever be a little hurt because of how badly things went between them, that’s why I hope for a future in which the two of them will finally reconcilate and find some closure. They both deserve it so badly. But if it’s so bad, why is it on the the top 5? Because if you think about it, we have Haikyuu as we know it only because of the relationship Oikawa and Kageyama had with each other.

anonymous asked:

who is JJ, why do you and God's Little Punk love him so much, and where do I find him (to watch)?

*gasp*

This is JJ:

His actual name is Jeremy Jordan, and I guess technically that ^^ is the character he currently plays on the CW/DC tv show Supergirl (which I don’t recommend, btw, it’s….kinda terrible lol, JJ is for me the only redeeming quality.)

JJ is better known to myself (and now, @gods-little-punk too) for his roles on Broadway, most especially Jack Kelly in Newsies

(which you can see on Netflix right now and you really ought to, if you can even tolerate musicals at all, it is the most wonderful story and so amazing, you will not regret and I cannot recommend it enough) 

and as the just slightly less heroic Clyde Barrow in Bonnie and Clyde

And he’s also the voice of this cupcake, Varian, on Tangled: the Series

He’s been in other things as well, but those are my favorites.

Not only is he a phenomenal actor, but he’s actually better known and celebrated for his singing skills:

Slaying this cover of “Beauty and the Beast” with his wife and being an extremely adorable dork at the same time???

The best oldies medley to ever be medleyed - who says kids these days don’t appreciate the classics?

I need for this show to be made, but basically any time he collaborates with Michael Mott’s writing I love it

And speaking of his other roles, there’s this the very best part of this movie: The Last 5 Years. (Seriously, the movie is gorgeous and has great music, but this is the happiest part of it)

But yeah.

He’s a very precious human being, very sweet, has strangely equal parts ego and bashfulness, is waaaaaay talented, smol fierce bean, apparently only owns like three checkered shirts and a Cowboys hat in his entire wardrobe, has something of a Cinderfella story to his life, is an enormous goof, and one of my favorite people on the planet.

Anyway. This is only scraping the tip of the iceberg of the Blessed Content involving Jeremy Michael Jordan and the fact that he is a gift to us all, but I start sounding like a crazy fangirl very quickly (I mean, I am, but, like… no need to advertise).

As for where exactly you can find his roles:

  • Newsies is on Netflix.
  • The Last Five Years is also on Netflix, but it’s got some adult content and is kind of sad and you might get angry at him because of his character so um. XD
  • Supergirl is also on Netflix and airing soon again on the CW, but man, Supergirl….is problematic. His character, Winn, however? A blessing, a boon, the best.
  • Bonnie and Clyde can be found as a bootleg of the original Broadway stage production on youtube, and I highly encourage purchasing the album because It Is A Jam.
  • There’s also somewhere on youtube a bootleg of him as J M Barrie in Finding Neverland, in which his Texan self has an adorably atrocious Scottish accent.
  • Voice-over work as Varian can be found on Disney XD, and in this released video clip, as well as this amazing one of him as his character singing at some point in a future episode. (!!! so good)
  • He’s been in other productions and in another movie Joyful Noise (kind of cheesy and yet also surprisingly good, and on Netflix last time I checked), as well as episodes of tv shows like SVU and Elementary, and recurring in the second season of Smash.

But yeah. Start with Newsies.

That’s JJ.
