California immigrant teen accepted to all 8 Ivy League schools

  • A California teen who once rapped to Lin-Manuel Miranda is facing a totally relatable dilemma: Having been accepted to each Ivy League school, which should she attend? 
  • Cassandra Hsiao, who came to the United States from Malaysia when she was 5, has been accepted to all eight Ivy Leagues — Yale, Princeton, Harvard, Yale, Cornell, Columbia, University of Pennsylvania, Dartmouth and Brown — KABC reported. “It’s incredible,” Hsiao, 17, told KABC.

Christian Witches...

I’ve just been perusing through the Christian/Christianity tag and was really surprised and disappointed to see that a lot of it was about Christian witchcraft?  I didn’t know that was a thing…

But I think it needs to be said (and a lot until everyone gets it)…Christian witches is not okay!  Y’all can’t believe that God is okay with it.

I don’t mean this to be condemning or judging.  But I do believe that we, as Christians, can and should instruct and guide each other, just like we should confess our sins.

“Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom…” - Colossians 3:16

“All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness,” - 2 Timothy 3:16

It’s ‘God-breathed’, it’s from the Holy Spirit through man.  It isn’t the prophets or writers interpretations of what they saw, it is what they saw (“Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet’s own interpretation of things.  For prophecy ever had its origin in the human will, but prophets, though human, spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.” 2 Peter 1:20,21).  So we can trust that it’s right and true, God’s instructions and hope and love for us.

Many verses show God’s stance on the occult, practice of witchcraft, divination, and communing with the dead.

  • “Do not turn to mediums or seek out spiritists, for you will be defiled by them.  I am the Lord your God.” - Leviticus 19:31
  • “‘I will set my face against anyone who turns to mediums and spiritists to prostitute themselves by following them, and I will cut them off from their people.’” - Leviticus 20:6
  • “Let no one be found among you who sacrifices their son or daughter in the fire, who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead.  Anyone who does these things is detestable to the Lord your God,” - Deuteronomy 18:10-12

For those who think it’s okay to imitate the way the pagans worship because you’re not worshiping another god and you’re still worshiping God, just in a different way…

  • “You must not worship the Lord your God in their way, because in worshiping their gods, they do all kinds of detestable things the Lord hates.” - Deuteronomy 12:31

Look at what happens to Saul when he consults a medium in 1 Samuel 28.

  • “The Lord will deliver both Israel and you into the hands of the Philistines … The Lord will also give the army of Israel into the hands of the Philistines.” - 1 Samuel 28:19

Or to Manasseh, a king of Jerusalem, in 2 Kings 21:6 and 2 Chronicles 33:6.  Both verses say that Manasseh practiced divination, sought omens, and consulted mediums and spiritists.  “He did much evil in the eyes of the Lord, arousing his anger.”  It goes on to say, “Therefore this is what the Lord, the God of Israel, says: I am going to bring such disaster on Jerusalem and Judah that the ears of everyone who hears of it will tingle,” (2 Kings 21:12).  It doesn’t end there either…it says that God will hand Manasseh over to his enemies because Manasseh had done evil in His eyes.

Ephesus was a city that was full of people practicing witchcraft and taking part in the occult.

  • “Many of those who believed now came and openly confessed what they had done.  A number who had practiced sorcery brought their scrolls together and burned them publicly.” - Acts 19:18,19

Isaiah 8:19 says, “When someone tells you to consult mediums and spiritists, who whisper and mutter, should not a people inquire of their God?  Why consult the dead on behalf of the living?

We have God’s Word to consult.  Between the covers of it, we have all the answers we could possibly need.

I’m not judging because I am not perfect.  I have sinned and will continue to sin.  I appreciate it when someone calls me out on something, especially if I don’t think it’s wrong.  It makes me question myself and remember that my ways are not His and how His ways are so much better for me.

“Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone,” - John 8:7

I’m not throwing stones.  I’m trying to help like I hope others try to help me.

“Brothers and sisters, if someone is caught in a sin, you who live by the Spirit should restore that person gently.” - Galatians 6:1

But none of this means God doesn’t love you.  He loves everyone, no matter what they’ve done.  I don’t mean to say that.  There isn’t anything any of us can do to remove His love from us.

Squirtle Amigurumi Pattern

Here’s this weeks pattern! Only a day late, I’m off to a good start haha. I always picked the fire-type starter (they’re always so cute!) so Squirtle was always my enemy, but a pretty cute enemy so you always end up liking him anyway. I wasn’t sure how I was going to do his tail, and I kept making his shell too big (it’s quite small now), but I’m pretty happy with how this one turned out!

I hope you guys like him too! If you don’t crochet yourself, you can buy this little guy at my Etsy.

More Abraxas 👀 6, 11, 12, 20, and 21. 16 and 17 for Monroe if you feel like it.

Their vices (physical or emotional)

Um. Duh.

GLUTTONY.

He’s just all-around sinful, though. He’s lustful, he’s lazy, he’s greedy, he’s wrathful–about the only thing he isn’t is envious. He’s too arrogant to envy anyone.

Bad or petty habits

I mean, his worst habit is his habit of eating anyone he even slightly disagrees with, but he’d slowed down on that since coming to live in Feldspar. He still has a tendency to eat the color out of his surroundings when he’s excited, though, and once they’re gone, getting them back is a major pain.

Grudges and vendettas

I think the only real grudge he has is against the Lightweaver, for obvious reasons.

In the future, he’ll probably have it out for Orochi’s folks, seeing as they didn’t treat his beloved husband very well. Seriously, if Orochi signs off on it, he’ll eat them without hesitation.

What-ifs/Alternate Timelines

What if Abraxas was completely broken by the Lightweaver’s experiments? What if, instead of becoming the vain, self-centered man we all know and love, he became a frightened shell of a living being, too afraid of what he’d become and how others might view him to even step foot outside of his home?

Basically, what if Abraxas was a soft, sad son instead of an asshole son?

Turning points in their life

Meeting Dreamweaver.

Meeting Orochi.

Accepting Kazuko as his own child.

Dark secrets/’skeletons in the closet’

y’all’d’ve

Monroe is a bounty hunter. I think it’s safe to say that every single happening in his life could be considered a skeleton in his closet. He’s killed countless outlaws and bandit kings. He’s broken plenty of laws himself in his pursuit of money justice. I’d be willing to bet he’s even hurt an innocent person or two.

He’s got so much blood on his hands that he can’t really tell the difference between bad blood and good blood anymore. No one in this world is innocent.

He sure as hell ain’t.

Regrets

Getting into the bounty hunting business in the first place.

And everything that happened after.

Surf and Turf with Lemon Herb Steak and Shrimp 

The favorite combination of steak and seafood is made even more delicious with a squeeze of fresh citrus. In this recipe, fresh herbs and lemon juice are used to marinade flank steak and jumbo shrimp before they are grilled to perfection.

SERVINGS: 6 to 7

TIME TO TABLE:
20 minutes prep, 12 minutes grilling.

INGREDIENTS:
Zest of 2 Paramount Citrus lemons
Juice of 2 Paramount Citrus lemons
2 cloves garlic, peeled
¼ cup olive oil
¼ cup fresh basil leaves
¼ cup fresh parsley
10 to 12 sprigs of fresh chives
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
1 ½ lb. flank steak
1 lb. jumbo raw shrimp, peeled and tails removed
Wooden skewers, soaked

PREPARATION

1. Preheat the grill to medium-high, about 400 to 425 degrees F.

2. Place the lemon zest, lemon juice, garlic cloves, olive oil, basil leaves, parsley, chives, salt and pepper in the bowl of a small food processor. Pulse until all ingredients are finely chopped and well blended.

3. Place the shrimp in a medium bowl and the steak in a shallow dish. Pour half of the lemon herb marinade over the shrimp and the other half over the steak. Stir to coat the shrimp and flip the steak to coat it well. Let marinade for 10 to 15 minutes.

4. Place the shrimp on grilling skewers with two large shrimp to each skewer.

5. Grill the steak for 7 to 12 minutes, flipping halfway through, until it reaches your desired doneness. While the steak cooks, grill the shrimp for 2 to 3 minutes on each side until they turn opaque and begin to blacken slightly. Let the steak cool for 5 minutes and cut against the grain into thin strips. Serve warm with the shrimp.

what is one area you are completely convinced that is real? what are you more skeptic about?
the transfer of energy. the power of the cosmos. I’m skeptical about spirit work only because I’m not versed in it and I think that being able to contact spirits might be too good to be true. I would love to learn more about it though.

do you know any witches in real life?
one

any areas you have been interested in and know a lot about but are too scared to try?
I’m not really scared to try anything, I just don’t have time lol

I answered this last one some time ago.
The Noose Tightens

Another day, another Seth Abrahamson MEGA tweet. 

Note: most of this is corroborated by my own timeline, culled from MSM.  He manages to put all the puzzle pieces together and explain some of the background detail of what may be going on as we speak.

“Between 6/20/16 and 12/13/16, former MI6 agent STEELE compiled an intel dossier establishing TRUMP and allies had committed treason. STEELE first worked for anti-Trump GOP operatives, but most of his research was done for free due to his concern for the intel on TRUMP. Between 6/1 and 11/18, parts of the dossier were variously held by anti-Trump GOPers, the MI6, FBI friends of Steele, and David Corn. During this time–largely pre-election–there is no evidence that any of the dossier’s sources had been identified or in any way harmed. Between 11/18 and 12/9 MCCAIN acquired the dossier. The Guardian reports MCCAIN didn’t share it–to avoid looking vengeful toward TRUMP. On 12/9, MCCAIN gave the dossier to COMEY. Presumably, COMEY thereafter shared it with other agents at the FBI. The NEW YORK FIELD OFFICE of the FBI is known to have illegally leaked confidential information to TRUMP advisers GIULIANI and PRINCE. GIULIANI and PRINCE–a TRUMP "shadow adviser” and brother to DEVOS–have admitted to having active FBI sources. Former TRUMP National Security Adviser Michael FLYNN was just found to have active (and paid) FBI sources also. Within seventeen days of the FBI having possession of Steele’s dossier, the chief source behind the dossier had been murdered by PUTIN. On 12/26, the top aide and most trusted advisor of SECHIN, head of Russia’s oil/gas company, was found murdered in the back of his car. The deceased man, former FSB agent Oleg EROVINKIN, was the trusted “go-between between SECHIN and PUTIN,” also both former FSB agents. The dossier accused SECHIN of offering TRUMP, via PAGE, money from Russia’s oil company ROSNEFT in exchange for lifting U.S. sanctions. The theory PUTIN helped elect TRUMP and offered money via SECHIN for lifting sanctions (allowing a ROSNEFT pipeline) is “#Russiagate.” The death of SECHIN aide/STEELE source EROVINKIN was reported as a heart attack before an autopsy had occurred. By 12/29, outlets reporting EROVINKIN died in the back of his car via heart attack were withdrawing the claim. While news of the death wouldn’t break widely until late January, it’s reasonable to assume Steele had heard about it by early January. The reason for this is that former FSB and ROSNEFT man EROVINKIN was–as later became public–the chief source for the STEELE dossier. As there was no reason for STEELE to think on 12/26 the FSB had his dossier, there was no reason for him to think EROVINKIN was killed. The BUZZFEED publication also would’ve confirmed for STEELE that EROVINKIN had indeed been identified and thereafter murdered by PUTIN. On 1/12, STEELE and his family abandoned their home in Surrey with no indication of whether they’d ever return. By 1/12, British media had established Steele’s strong reputation in the IC as former Russia-desk head for MI6. Meanwhile, U.S. media did little research on STEELE–and indulged claims by TRUMP that STEELE was a “failed spy” peddling “fake news.” By 1/27, it had been leaked that EROVINKIN, a “go-between for PUTIN and SECHIN,” was a primary dossier source. The news of EROVINKIN being linked to the dossier within a matter of days increased the credibility of the dossier for law enforcement. On 2/11 CBS said “it’s gaining credibility among law enforcement–even for people who discounted it initially.” On 2/27 reports placed Steele in Cambridge after 7 weeks without a sighting, though he remained away from home. On 3/1 it was revealed the FBI had enough confidence in the dossier that it offered to pay STEELE to expand it. On 3/2, SENATE DEMS contacted STEELE via friends and offered to help him testify before their Intel Committee. On 3/7, STEELE emerged from hiding and told the press, “I won’t be making any further statements at this time.” A reasonable speculation is that STEELE’s emergence from hiding was prompted at least in part by U.S. assurances he’d be foregrounded. The more attention U.S. officials gave STEELE, and the more legitimacy their statements lent to his work, the safer he was from PUTIN. On 3/17 it was confirmed that a STEELE source, MILLIAN, met with former MANAFORT boss (DERIPASKA) in June 2016. DERIPASKA, a close ally of PUTIN, had paid MANAFORT $10 million annually from 2006 to 2009 to shill for Russia. MANAFORT, whose current tie to DERIPASKA/PUTIN is unknown, has now been found to have laundered his Russia pay. The MILLIAN/DERIPASKA meet further confirmed the dossier originated from sources in a position to know the movements of TRUMP advisers. On 3/20, the HOUSE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE met publicly with COMEY. The Dems cited STEELE’s dossier repeatedly. Within 72 hours the Dems had indicated they intended to ask STEELE to testify. Citing his dossier was likely intended to keep him safe. The likely Dem theory: if the dossier’s content is not just public but made public by Congress, PUTIN gains nothing in killing STEELE. On 3/23, Rep. Himes (D-CT) of the HOUSE INTEL COMMITTEE told CBS, “We’ll want to talk to Christopher Steele.” Himes’ statement confirmed the House as well as the Senate was interested in STEELE and had a new level of confidence he would testify. In the past (e.g. after the 2004 election) minority parties in Congressional committees have scheduled informal meetings for witnesses. So even when the GOP refuses to let STEELE formally testify, HOUSE AND SENATE DEMS can (and say they will) schedule informal testimony. The benefit of informal testimony is that Dems can televise the testimony so long as STEELE agrees to discuss no classified U.S. intel. So there’s every reason to believe that (a) STEELE has strong sources, (b) PUTIN won’t kill him, and © he will soon testify publicly. For all the lies told by TRUMP and ALLIES about both STEELE and his dossier, in fact virtually none of it has been disproven to date. E.g., PAGE has confessed to ROSNEFT meets; the ROSNEFT sale was as described; COHEN was a courier as described. In sum, the IC and Democrats increasingly think the STEELE dossier and #Russiagate theory are accurate. If so, TRUMP will be impeached.(NOTES) Dossier claims about TRUMP’s 2013 Moscow trip are still being investigated, but we know TRUMP lied about it.”

6.Reason you joined tumblr?
I think originally, back on my original/kpop/first tumblr, it was because a lot of fandom had come over to here, years ago, and cause it was a good place for pictures and things for fandoms! It’s more fandom friendly for art/fic/meta than twitter! 

10.Dyed your hair?
Yeah, a couple times! Just last week I went from this ombre/blending I’ve had for the past few years (natural brown to caramel) dyed to my natural colour with a hint of red in the light! I’m happy with it!

12.Vegetable or meat?
Both! Gotta have your veggies! But I love me some tasty hamburgers and stuff!

1 Corinthians 6:12-20 (NKJV)
All things are lawful for me, but all things are not helpful. All things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any. Foods for the stomach and the stomach for foods, but God will destroy both it and them. Now the body is not for sexual immorality but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body. And God both raised up the Lord and will also raise us up by His power.

Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take the members of Christ and make them members of a harlot? Certainly not! Or do you not know that he who is joined to a harlot is one body with her? For “the two,” He says, “shall become one flesh.” But he who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with Him.

Flee sexual immorality. Every sin that a man does is outside the body, but he who commits sexual immorality sins against his own body. Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.
