“What exactly are you going for here?” Jazzy asked, skimming over the dress options you had hung in front of her.

“I don’t know? Something nice?” You popped onto the couch, resting your head on Renee’s lap, who combed her fingers through your hair lovingly.

“You said casual? We should rule out the strapless.” Phillipa said, tucking it away to leave you with three dresses. You scanned your options again, wondering why you even bothered.

Why were you trying to impress this guy? You barely knew him, you barely liked him. You mostly said yes because he was offering a free meal and you’d never say no to that.

“Knock, knock!” Cheered Lin, pushing the door open to see four dejected girls staring at dresses, “Am I interrupting something here?”

“(Y/N) is struggling to find a dress for her date tonight.” Renee answered for you, rubbing your arm.

“Date? You have a date?” Lin shut the door behind him and took the seat at your feet. He examined the dresses for a second, “The middle one, obviously.”

You sat up, squinting at the garments for what was probably the hundredth time. With four words, Lin had completely made the decision for you.

“You’re so right.” You shot up to snatch the dress of the hanger, “Not too busy, not too laid back. Says I’m happy to be there, but it won’t kill me if I never see him again.” The girls giggled at your description of the dress, all agreeing that it fit it perfectly, “You’re the best!” You called, heading out to the dressing room you shared with a few ensemble members, the dress clutched closely to your chest.

Lin sighed, glancing at the two dresses you left behind.

“Now, I wonder what dress Lin would like to see (Y/N) in on their first date?” Coo’d Jazzy, pretending to think for a moment while leaning forward to place her chin into her hands.

“This one!” Phillipa called, snatching a dress, holding it to her body as she danced around, “It says: I’m excited for our date and even more excited for you to take this dress off of me!” She tossed the dress to Renee, who joined in on the fun.

“It says: I’ve been in love with you for months and this is my ‘just ravish me already’ dress!” The dress was passed to Jazzy.

“It says: Lin! Just ask me out already!” Jazzy chucked the dress to Lin, who sat dejectedly on the couch, barely able to catch the dress before it hit him in the face, “What does it say to you, Lin?”

“It says I need to stop her from going on that date tonight.”

After the show, you were quick to freshen up and change into the dress. You messed with your hair and makeup a little, deciding not to go too bold so he wouldn’t think you were that interested in him.

There was a gentle knock at your open door, and Lin stood there silently leaning against the door frame as you applied a coat of mascara.

“Ah! What do you think of your choice?” You twirled in place as he looked you up and down, giving a jokingly obnoxious whistle.

“I think you look amazing, but I think I changed my mind.” He gestured to the deep red dress he had draped across his shoulder.

“I don’t know Lin, I don’t think that’s the message I want to be sending this guy. I barely said yes to the date in the first place.” You turned your attention back to the mirror, checking for smudges or creases.

“It’s not for him.” You turned back, but he refused to meet your gaze, “This is going to sound really sudden and totally out of line, but I really like you. I understand if you still want to go on your date tonight, but there’s this really fun karaoke bar a few blocks from here. We could get a few drinks and I can pretend that I’m not thinking about kissing you the whole night.” He finally chanced a look at you.

“Well, I guess I should tell him I have to cancel. How can I turn down an offer like that?” You pulled your phone out, texting a half-assed excuse to get out of tonight. Some ‘sudden work thing, that’s show-biz, right?’.

“Are you ready?” He asked when your ‘date’ sent back a ‘It’s fine! I totally get it! Some other time, then?

“I have to get changed.” You swiped the dress off his shoulder, “This dress doesn’t exactly give off the message I want to be sending to you on our first date.”

I love seeing big numbers on vegan posts 💜💜💜

Just saw one with 75,000 notes and not many comments were pro milk! (It was about how gross milk is)

Is this what progress feels like?!??? Cause I like it.


“One of the Columbine High School gunmen prepared a report on the danger of guns in schools more than a year before carrying out a deadly attack on teachers and fellow students. Eric Harris’s December 1997 school report was included in more than 900 pages of Columbine-related documents released yesterday by Colorado investigators. In grading the Harris report, a copy of which you’ll find below, a Columbine teacher judged it ‘thorough & logical’ and gave the paper a 69 out of 75. Noting that, 'a school is no place for a gun,’ Harris concluded that the use of metal detectors and an increased police presence 'are a great start to fight against guns in school.’ On April 20, 1999, Harris and Dylan Klebold–armed with shotguns and semiautomatic weapons–murdered 12 classmates and a teacher before killing themselves”

Literally all the products on our shelves have both the English name and the French name. All the signs are in English. Our pamphlets are all in English. We only have maybe three tiny chalkboard signs we hand-write in Chinese, and they are mostly just translations of English phrases or descriptions that exist somewhere already in the store. 

A customer came up to me while I was working and asked, “Why is this sign in …. whatever language this is?” Note that 75% of the staff that work at our location are Chinese, and I was the only Chinese person working that shift. 

Me: That’s in Chinese, because a good portion of our clientele are in Chinese. We’re just trying to accommodate them.

Customer: But I can’t understand it.

Me: It’s just telling them that this is a seasonal and new product. It’s like what we have already on the products or signs, but so that the Chinese-only crowd can understand it.

Customer: That doesn’t make sense. I don’t understand it. What about the people who don’t understand? Why isn’t it in English?

Me: (getting testy) Literally our entire store is in English.

Customer: (rolls her eyes) We’re in CANADA.

She leaves and I roll my own eyes and kind of hiss to my manager who was nearby like, ‘gosh’, but another customer heard me and she said, “Well I agree with her. This is Canada. It shouldn’t be in Chinese.”

Like dang, I don’t like to pull the racism card but I sure felt their love for other cultures that day. Even worse was when the second customer asked me to show her something, and we passed by the first lady while she was waiting in line. The second customer slowed down, placed a comforting hand on the first lady’s shoulder, and said, “For the record, I TOTALLY agree with you.” And the first lady looked at me and then was like, “Thank you for agreeing with me.”

Behind The Scenes 2 (10.75/16)

Author’s note: I seriously don’t trust my computer, so let’s see if this part even gets posted today! The next part won’t be posted till Wednesday (hopefully). Sorry for any errors.

Genre: idk tbh… (Suga) (Jungkook)

Word count: 1496

Summary: Can you get thorough to Jungkook?

Other parts: HERE

This is my GIF. I made it based off of this scenario series.

Back at the dorm, you did the usual routine of cooking, eating and cleaning. Since it was still a bit early, Rap monster had somewhere he needed to go. And since you “did your part”, he decided to reward you and let you stay out of your room until he got back.

You decided to go to Jhope’s room to talk to him and tell him about your sweet  revenge on Jungkook.

You lightly knocked on his door. When he didn’t open up, you poked your head inside. “Hobi?” His lights were off and it looked like he was lying in bed. “Hobi?” you called out again. From his bed you could hear him mumbling about something, but you couldn’t make out what he was saying. “Dang, he’s high already…. Ah, well then Yoongi will get to know first as usual.” You went to Suga’s room, letting yourself in with a light knock.

You were welcomed by a flash coming from his bed. You saw him laying against the wall posing with the stuffed panda he won.

“Were you taking a selfie with that toy panda?” you asked laying down in the spot next to him.

He looked at you a bit embarrassed. “And if I did?” he retorted

“Ha! Nothing… What are you doing?… Other than taking selfies.”

“Just reading.”

Then you heard his phone buzz. You leaned over to take a look at his screen. Your attempted failed though because Suga quickly moved his phone away from you.

“Why does everyone keep doing that?” you asked in frustration.

“Why do you keep looking at people’s phones?”

“… Fine, you have a point…”

“So how was it for you today?”

“Like I said, it was actually fun. Jungkook and I went on a bunch of rides. For most of the day he was actually fun to be with!”

“Really?” Suga asked, quickly turning to you.

“Yeah, but then he started flirting with the girl at one of the stands.” You cringed your face.

“You got jealous or what?” although he was obviously joking, you could have sworn you got a vibe of genuine curiosity form him.

“No! It was just annoying. He wasn’t going along with the whole thing. I was scared he was going to fuck it all up cuz he can’t keep it in his pants… So I got some revenge.” You giggled.

“What did you do?” Just then his phone buzzed again and his attention went back to his phone.

You continued to speak, but he wasn’t really paying attention to you.

“Yoongi… Yoongi… Yoongi!”

“Huh? What?” he mumbled, still looking at his phone.

“Did you hear what I said?”

“Yeah… something about Jungkook.”

“What are you doing?”


You took the phone out of his hand and took a quick look at his screen.

“Hey!” he ripped his phone out of your hands.

“You could have just told me you were texting Aiko.” You said now grumpy.

He typed something out and then put his phone back in his pocket and turned to you. “Ok, tell me your revenge again.”

“Nope, I already told you. You should have been listening.”

“Tell me. I’m listening now… I’ll give you this panda if you tell me!” Suga offered, holding the stuffed toy in his hand.

“…Fine.” You took the panda from his hand and retold your revenge.

“That’s hilarious, you should be proud of yourself.” He smiled.

You sat up on his bed. “I know.” You said, joking flipping your hair dramatically. Then you stood up and went to open the door. “I’m gonna go now.”

“What? Why?”

“I need to talk to Jungkook. I gotta do it before the monster gets back.”

He looked at you a bit confused.

“Maybe I’ll come back when I’m done.” You said as you walked out.

With much determination, you made your way over to Jungkook room’s and knocked loudly on the door.

“What? I’m busy!” Jungkook shouted

“I need to talk to you!” you said through the door.


You waited a good minute before knocking frantically on his door.

“What?!?” He shouted through the door. Soon he finally opened up and asked. “What do you want?!?”

“Are there still cameras in here?” you whispered.

He rolled his eyes at you. “They got take got taken out!” He said in a still angry tone.

“We need to talk.” You huffed, pushing your way into his room.

“By those words, I really hope you mean that you are going to “break up” with me.”

You walked over to his desk chair and took a seat. It wasn’t until you did so that you realized he was only in a t-shirt and boxer shorts. “Can you please cover up?” you asked looking away from him

He grunted and pulled on the pair of pants he was wearing earlier, not bothering to button them closed. “Ok, what did you want to talk about? Is this about paying me back?”

“You know I don’t have any money.”

“There are other ways you can pay me back.” He said slyly. He sat on his bed and smirked at you.

You glared back at him. “I wanted to make truce.”


“Yeah. Look, we both hate having to do this whole pretend thing, so why make it harder for each other.”

“Cuz its fun. Why should I change so much just cuz I’m stuck with you now?”

“Was it fun when I fucked with you today? Cuz it definitely was for me.”

He just looked away from you, not wanting to accept the fact that you made a good point. “It’s hard to take you seriously with that stupid panda you know.”

“Ignore it.”

“…So what’s this truce of yours?”

You rolled the chair closer to him. “Well, I wanted us to agree to be civil about this whole thing. I say that every time we have to be together, we just pretend like we are actors in a drama. We don’t have to go as far as making out or having in depth conversations or whatever, we just have to be more legit than we are now. I’ll do my best to be more involved and not pull away and stuff. You can’t be going around flirting with everyone. And we can’t be fighting with each other either.”

“That doesn’t sound very fun.”

“That’s not the point. The point is I don’t want any reason for Namjoon hurt me. It’s my ass that’s on the line here!”

Jungkook stopped talking, remembering how serious the whole situation was. He wanted to bring up the fact that you were putting yourself on the line when you threatened him earlier, but just he kept his mouth shut.

“How we were on all the rides is how we should be all the time when we are out in public. Not exactly love, not the shit we deal with here, just whatever we have to do together in that moment.”

Jungkook nodded at your reasoning.

“The main goal is just to look like a legit couple. If we want to talk about something serious we can say… “Time out” and for that moment, we don’t have to be pretending.”

“Like a safe word?” he smirked

“… Sure… like a safe word… then to pretend again, we can say “Time in”. But my point is that we have to take this seriously. Shit is bad enough and we shouldn’t make this harder for each other. That is what Namjoon wants. He wants us to be at each other’s throats. Maybe if we do this good enough, he’ll get bored and make up break up.”

“He’ll just come up with something worse.”

He was right. “…We’ll cross that bridge when we get to it.”

“… You make a good point though. I guess I’ll go along with this shit.”

“So, no more flirting, no more starting shit with me, no more mumbling shit at me under your breath. I will reciprocate the cheesy crap and I won’t make you spend so much money or threaten you… Deal?” You stuck your hand out to him.

He started at your hand a bit as he contemplated your deal. “… Deal…” his hand engulfed yours. “Now that that is settled, can you please leave so that I can properly relieve myself.” He said, his hand still holding yours.

“Relieve yourself?”

“Yeah, I was in the middle of it when you wanted to come in.”

You looked at him confused. All his did was give you that stupid smirk of his.

“You know… Why do you think my door was locked?” His smirk grew.

You froze. He couldn’t be talking about what you thought he was talking about. You looked down at your hand and pulled it out of his grasp and then you looked back at him. He was on the verge of laughter.

“Eeeeeewwwwwwww!” you ran out of his room and to the hallway bathroom to disinfect your hand.

I want to honor the memory of the great civil rights activist Julian Bond, who died yesterday at the age of 75. As he often noted, Mr. Bond was from several generations of college graduates (his father, Horace Mann Bond, was the first Black president of Lincoln University in Pennsylvania) but spent the bulk of his life reaching out to help others gain equality in education and civil rights. I gratefully acknowledge the decades of fearless service and leadership of Julian Bond and extend my condolences to his wife Pamela and his family. This photo of Mr. Bond with members of the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee (he was a co-founder) was taken by the legendary photographer Richard Avedon on March 23, 1963 in Atlanta, Georgia.

It’s astonishing how often you’ll see a “the Straights™” post that has 75,000 notes and you click on the op link and op is a raging aphobe who was literally never talking about anyone except a-spec people. It’s incredible and kind of horrifying tbh
