I'm actually excited about this one

Ennoshita volunteers to do the dishes, but he’s ushered away by the automata that govern the kitchen. Ennoshita’s almost afraid of the democracy they show within the confines of the tiniest, dirtiest kitchen in the galaxy.

The night is bright when he surfaces. The deck is empty, save for a solitary figure in the crow’s nest. Ennoshita sighs, tension rolling off his shoulders, tension he didn’t know he was holding. He climbs up slowly, not entirely sure of what he wants to accomplish.

“Hey,” Tanaka says, without looking back. 

“Hey. How’re you feeling?”

“Great. Except for the part where I die.”

here’s my preview for @ennotanazine ☆彡
  • me, an actual bisexual: I'm excited about this one character being confirmed bi because it's nice to have fictional characters I can relate to, even if their sexuality isn't a big deal in their story.

day one: favorite male character

What’s your favorite version of Treasure Island that’s been done?

Luke: For me, it’s Muppet Treasure Island. I love it to death and I actually think it’s one of the best adaptations as far as the way the things they cut and kept in and built up the action. Even if it wasn’t the Muppets it’d still be a great version. I love it, and I have to try not to think about it too much on set.

Jessica: It’s so funny because we get asked that question a lot and I’ve heard Luke say the same answer and he’s equally excited every time. “Muppet Treasure Island! And this is why!” It’s so cute.

Whilst everyone freaks out over the potential malec break up in 2b, I for one am looking forward to it. Because I have absolutely nothing to worry about, Magnus and Alec are one of those otps that you know will be endgame even if the universe turns on its head. 😌😌😌I am totally here for the rollercoaster that is Malec, the cuteness, the first times, the get together, the heartbreaks, the make up and the happily ever after ☺

You gotta dance with the devil on a river to beat the stream,
Call it living the dream, call it kicking the ladder.

Is there anything you especially dislike about Korean society? I know that the country has a lot of problems but what are the worst ones for you? Like things that make you go 'omg i'm so sorry you have to deal with that'. I find Korean culture, language, society, media etc really fascinating but man, the general public sure has to suffer a lot. :/

Lol girl don’t get me started…

Actually I have to make a presentation in my one class that is only foreigners. We were told to it could be about any feature of Korean society. I’m thinking about doing it about the concept of 헬조선. My professor is probably going to be thrilled that of all things in Korea I chose that, but I’m excited. It’s gonna be great when the presenters before me do topics like ~Hallyu~ ~Korean 정~ ~marriage in Korea~ and then I’m gonna come up like “hey guise lemme tell you why people think Korea is LITERALLY HELL.”

There’s a new movement where some Koreans have started to reject the term 헬조선 because at least the people in hell are sinners who deserve to be punished, while Koreans get punished even if they did nothing wrong. Worse-than-hell 조선. Hahahaha

Many problems in Korea stem from the suffocating societal pressure to be perfect. Nobody is proud of their own accomplishments, because they are never enough. Getting into any big university in Seoul is a feat, but it’s nothing to be proud of if you didn’t get into SKY. Getting an 850 on the TOEIC is very hard if you’ve never even lived in an English-speaking country, but it means nothing, because somebody else got a 950. And the (depressingly) hilarious part is that even those who do get perfect scores in everything, and do graduate from Seoul National, and do get hired at some big company like Samsung, still usually end up in a job where they work their asses off constantly every day of the week with little rest. The only difference is they’ll have more money. Putting money as the only goal does not a happy society make.

This is what leads to suicidal high school students that come home from hakwon at 12am. Men who come home at 2am completely drunk out of their minds. Women, many of whom spend their day working too, just to come home and take care of her husband’s demanding parents who expect them to keep a perfect household. Of course that gets into the next big problem which is people treating everyone below them badly. It’s not uncommon to see bosses who treat employees like their personal slaves, professors who treat their students like their personal slaves, and so on and so on. 

On top of worrying if you’re good enough, Koreans also have to worry if they’re normal enough. Koreans expect that everyone else will and should act just like they do personally. This is why being foreign in Korea is already kind of a sin it itself. As a foreigner I’ve heard Koreans often make claims that contradict each other, prefacing each one with “that’s the way it is here in Korea.” Whenever they see someone doing something in public that goes against their personal moral code, they attribute it not to difference of opinion, but “strangeness” or even insanity in the other person. Instead of tackling these differences case-by-case, they argue over who’s opinion is more widely held by other people and thus common law. Telling someone on the bus you wish they wouldn’t eat chips next to you? Too hard. It’s preferable to instead start a giant discussion about it with other people to establish whether or not eating chips on the bus is going against Korean moral code or not. If it is, that chip-eating person was a crazy, immoral jerk not worthy of Korean society. Lol.

Every decision must first be evaluated on the basis of how the people around you will react. Even if you personally want something, it’s unacceptable in the case that the people around you, be it your family, friends, or even strangers, don’t approve. One’s decisions aren’t necessarily intended to make oneself happy, but to make others happy. This extends into the way one looks. Changing one’s appearance is not seen as a way to express oneself, but as a way to be more acceptable to the society. This is why Korea has the highest rates of plastic surgery in the world. While western people are thought to get plastic surgery for personal vanity, Koreans do it just to be considered “acceptably normal.” 

The last thing I’ll point out is that Koreans are opportunists. They see no problem with using other people to get ahead. You may argue that this is a facet of every capitalist society, and I would agree with you, but the extreme competitiveness in Korea makes it even more pronounced. Koreans are not afraid to pretend to befriend somebody so that they can gain something from them. They see this as a fact of life. It’s nice as a foreigner to have Koreans come up to you on the street desperate to be “friends” with you, until you realize they’re just looking for free English practice/help.

So yeah these are the reasons, along with some others, that I don’t think I can keep living in Korea much longer. I originally intended to, as I really loved my life here the first couple of years, (and there’s still things I love about Korea ofc) but seeing so many sad worn-down people around me has really taken the joy out of Korean life. Doesn’t help that being treated as an outsider forever sucks. If you’re not Korean, no amount of Korean fluency or cultural knowledge makes you “normal.” You’re always an other.

Question: when the stories are over will you still update us on your sims ooor?

yeah dude it’s the sims, of course i’m gonna keep doing stuff with them! i play the game first and foremost. tbh i’ll always keep thinking up new things/storylines for my characters (like i never originally planned to do lou’s back story, but it just happened along the way) so who knows what the future holds. 

and then there’s also gen 2 so 🌚

I just calculated that the kids from Stranger Things 2 (Mike, Eleven, Lucas, etc) are 13 in 1984 which would make them 46 today in 2017.

Winona Ryder is actually 46 today, which means she would have been 13 (for real) when the events of Stranger Things 2 take place.

I’m just thinking of the recently surfaced story where she discussed being bullied in middle school for wearing boyish clothing.

“As I went to the bathroom I heard people saying, “Hey, f****t”. They slammed my head into a locker. I fell to the ground and they started to kick the s**t out of me. I had to have stitches.” And went on to say, “I think they thought I was a gay boy.” This happened on her 3rd day of 7th grade, which would be about a month before Stranger Things 2 takes place.

Now imagine it, but she’s in Hawkins Jr High and The Gang™ help her up and she becomes a stranger kid too!!!

Here’s all of the progress from this morning’s experimental stream.  I’m very, very excited about this one!
