*THIS IS GOING TO BE SAPPY. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED*
I just need a moment to brag on my girl. Not only is she a pre-med AND education dual major, she’ll have a complete minor in French done by the end of this school year. Not only is she technically a freshman, she’s actually taken enough AP and dual credit classes to be a sophomore. Not only is she doing all of that, she’s also a D1 rugby player for Indiana University. And on top of that she manages to juggle being the best girlfriend in the entire world and a good sister and a good friend. Ladies and gentlemen, I have never met anyone as intelligent and open minded as Alex. Yes, she’s a modern day Einstein. Yes, she’s a kick ass rugby player. But she’s also my rock and a huge supporter of what I do. Words cannot begin to explain how proud of this girl I am. I’m so proud to call her mine every single day. Even with all of the “fun bonus” calculus lessons that I have absolutely no need for. Even when she starts a sentence and English and somehow manages to also speak in French and Chinese in that same sentence. Oh ya, have I mentioned she’s fluent in Chinese? I haven’t? Well she is. I love you so much baby girl. Thank you for allowing me to love you and be yours. itsboughertime
FC PORTO APPEALS THAT THE CLUBS IN THE UCL SUPPORT MIGRATION WAVE
This Friday, FC Porto sent a letter to UEFA inviting all the other 31 clubs that will be part of the UEFA Champions League this season to donate one euro for each ticket sold, to support the humanitarian crisis caused by the wave of migrants trying to reach Europe.
Under the motto “Let’s play for the migrants!”, the proposition of the club is to have this donation occur on the first match played at home by each club, which will happen in one of the first two matchdays of the group stage. FC Porto will play the first match at home against Chelsea, on the 29th September. FC Porto is a sporting club and the social standards the club lives by mean no one is indifferent to the dramatic situation thousands of family are going through, as they often pay with their own lives for a chance at searching for the safety they lack in their home countries.
FC Porto will keep trying to find means to contribute to diminish the suffering of these migrants and, as always, is counting on the support of the fans and whoever wants to join the club.
For those of you who haven’t listened I the new Iron Maiden album yet, get on that. It’s the most epic thing heavy metal has seen all year. Not too mention that the boys still kick ass after all these years. \m/
I thought Eddie Redmayne portrayed me very well in The Theory of Everything Movie. He spent time with ALS sufferers so he could be authentic. At times, I thought he was me.
Seeing the film has given me the opportunity to reflect on my life. Although I’m severely disabled, I have been successful in my scientific work. I travel widely and have been to Antarctica and Easter Island, down in a submarine and up on a zero gravity flight. One day I hope to go into space.
I’ve been privileged to gain some understanding of the way the universe operates through my work. But it would be an empty universe indeed without the people that I love. -SH
Winter’s Bone - Silver Linings Playbook Congratulations, Jennifer Lawrence, for your second Academy Award nomination.
“I’m not sure I’d recommend this kind of thinking to anyone else, but I’ve always known I’d be successful in acting. I have certainly worked for it. (…) To you it looks emotionally straining, but I don’t get emotionally drained, because I don’t invest any of my real emotions. I don’t take any of my characters’ pain home with me, I don’t even take it to craft services. I’ve never been through anything that my characters have been through. And I can’t go around looking for roles that are exactly like my life. So I just use my imagination. If it ever came down to the point where, to make a part better, I had to lose a little bit of my sanity, I wouldn’t do it. I would just do comedies.”
after writing hundreds of songs day and night, his very own composition is finally being used by sm entertainment. he wrote it not for himself, but for jongdae and his juniors, because he really likes making music. his passion for the arts is really overshadowed in exo sometimes.
baby steps yixing… you’re getting there.
also pls all hail producer zhang and his obnoxious retweet on weibo to purposely inform us that jongdae is included in this song (✿◠‿◠)
