@ The Ninjago Community

You guys are so awesome.

You have no idea how fun it is to whip something up just for kicks and giggles, slam it in my blog, and come back from church to 45 notes. Most of them are from total strangers; less than half of them from followers or mutuals. I don’t even know you, and you don’t know me, but you’re here.

I can hardly get 4 notes on original posts otherwise. I can’t fit 45 people in my room at once. And yet all of you guys flood out in one hour to show your support for my silly doodle. Hot dang.

My headcanon post for Dr. Julien is the second most popular post on my blog, pushing 190 notes. You guys did that. You rock.

The Ninjago fandom on tumblr is so small, and yet we rush to support content creators and fellow fans. I see the same fanart on almost every Ninjago blog - and sure, it gets tedious, but mostly it’s evidence that ALL OF US WANT TO SUPPORT ALL FAN CREATORS EQUALLY ALL OF THE TIME.

I know there is discourse and negativity out in our fandom somewhere - I’ve avoided it, mostly - but from what I’ve seen, the Ninjago Community is a small, warm, supportive, goofy, fun-loving presence in this site, and I adore that.

Ninja never quit, and neither do we. KEEP BEING AWESOME!!

seriously one of my absolute favorite things in the world is helping people with their writing.

when i was teaching a few years back, it was the one thing i always looked forward to–helped break the monotony and made me feel like i was doing something actually worthwhile with my time.

now, i have found that once more in this community and realized just how much i missed it.  ugh, i am so happy with that aspect of my life right now.

Librarians are not shushing people, and libraries are no longer only silent cathedrals for solo reading. (They still have reading rooms—don’t worry.) Instead, these great pieces of civic architecture are being repurposed: They’re places that offer classes in computer skills and thousands of other subjects, provide internet access to millions of Americans who can’t afford it, and host innumerable neighborhood meetings.

Libraries these days are providing meals to kids and adults through local food banks, working with local immigrant agencies, offering homework help, and loaning out an amazing array of things, from musical instruments to microscopes. (Yes: the Library of Things.) What they’re up to is dazzling. And in 2013, 94 percent of Americans said that having a public library improves the quality of life in a community. As America gets older and more unequal, its people need new forms of education to thrive—and libraries are ground zero for every public value the country cares about.

Brooklyn 99: doesn’t get the recognition it deserves

happy endings: cancelled after 3 seasons

scrubs: was always on the verge of being cancelled

cougar town: was cancelled and then brought back for only 3 more short seasons

community: always on the brink of cancellation, moved to yahoo and finally cancelled

undateable: was cancelled after doing a hilarious live season

new girl: is getting a 7th season but it will only be 8 episodes because fox wanted to cancel it after season 6

the mindy project: was cancelled and then moved to hulu

parks and rec: got 7 good seasons but mostly underappreciated

 

and yet for some reason the big bang theory now has 11 seasons!  

all the aforementioned shows are/were better written, better acted and are/were actually funny

also bill Lawrence creates better comedies then chuck lorrie

But I love you more than words can say
