Here’s How Seriously Adam Driver Takes Playing Kylo Ren
Being the bad guy of the new Star Wars saga requires a lot of focus on the dark side—even when more cheerful co-stars try to hug you out of it.
By David Kamp

With regard to Driver, Boyega has a specific strategy to try to lure him to the lighter side. “I give Adam hugs randomly, just for no reason,” he said.

“And does he take it?” I asked.

“He just stands there,” Boyega said. “He just waits for me to be done.”

imagine being so painfully edgy and boring that you can’t even appreciate ppl just being nice to you for the sake of staying in an equally edgy and boring boring character, if John Boyega was just randomly hugging me i’d be the happiest person in the world, my mental illness gone, my skin clear, my rent paid

Hey rat what where the things that made you stop defending sixpenceee. I did some of my own research but I wanna know what you think

The main two things that I saw all the time and could absolutely no longer defend:

  • sheer laziness in post-making; she didn’t fact-check basic points, she got names/dates wrong, her posts were riddled with terrible grammar and spelling, and she sourced sporadically at best. I couldn’t understand why someone with such an influential blog would spend so little time on it. not to mention a lot of the posts were awkwardly worded and/or just badly written in general.
  • post-stealing; I’ve seen her copy-paste huge chunks of Wikipedia articles, huge chunks of Reddit stories/threads, huge chunks of other bloggers’ posts. she’s even done it to me – I’ve posted something and @’d her in the tag, and she’s taken the post and reposted it to her blog. sometimes she would “credit” me as in saying I found it, but she never reblogged my actual work. god knows how many other people she did this to.

These are the two things I saw constantly all the time, and the laziness and plagiarism just really rubbed me up the wrong way. Some of the other stuff also happened often but didn’t annoy me as much (but I didn’t appreciate it, either), and some of this stuff rarely happened/I didn’t witness myself, but they’re all factors:

  • the money grabbing/constant self-promoing/note grabbing; like, I get it. no one is on Tumblr if they’re not looking for notes, but stuff like “follow for my woke soul” and ““deep”” quotes I used to see on stickers for MySpace profiles were just embarrassing and annoying. not to mention the mall goth shirts and the constant reblogs of her several other blogs. I didn’t follow for that. I followed for creepy content, and I got less and less of that over tie.
  • the art stealing; sixpenceee made shirts out of a lot of art I’m pretty sure she’s not licensed to use, including stuff under copyright law. this is really reckless behaviour and while most of the time I think copyright laws are bullshit I only apply this to massive corporations raking in billions. small independent artists are a different matter altogether. plus the shirts are constantly reblogged and very badly made. it’s just more of the above: she puts no effort in to anything.
  • ableism; I’m going to admit that I haven’t seen as much of this as it’s made out and that was the main reason why I sat on the fence for so long, but the more I read multiple accounts of people saying the same thing the more I can’t turn a blind eye anymore. once enough people are saying it, and for so long, it’s probably wise to take note. also when I sat down and thought about it I do remember several occasions where she’s tagged things mentally ill people have made/gone through as “creepy”, and a lot of the stories she rips off from Reddit do have the cheap ““twist”” of “and then………… he was MENTALLY ILL!!!111!!”
  • harassment/bullying/etc; this was something I hadn’t seen when people first started messaging me about her and for a while I did have the opinion of “well she can’t control her followers” but the more I’ve looked into it the more I’ve seen countless people saying that she either encouraged it or played the victim to encourage it, and several bloggers have been bullied into taking breaks or leaving altogether. she seems to do this to people who speak out against her, or other paranormal bloggers. I get you can’t control your followers but she has so much influence that she could shame them into stopping with one post. I have a fraction of her followers (in the five digits) but even I have had to do it in the past. it’s simple. you just make a post saying you don’t condone it and to stop, and 90% of people do. if people are bullying others in your name, shouldn’t you be ashamed? shouldn’t you want them to stop?

I feel really annoyed that it came to this because sixpenceee did help me out a lot at one point, and while I’m still grateful for that, one reblog two years ago is not enough for me to stay silent about all this anymore. there’s too much evidence against her and this “pay me to be nice to you” idea of hers says too much about her that makes me personally uncomfortable. I followed for good creepy content, not lazy posts, plagiarism, and fraud. everything else I’m more inclined to believe because of that “sixpenceee heals” post, too – and the fact that so many people have messaged me calling me brave for calling her out and saying they’re too scared to do it themselves just proves the other points. it’s a shame, but I can’t pretend it’s not happening anymore.

SUPER SAD!!!!!!!

Request: hello! I was wondering if you could write a reader x avengers where the reader died during a mission. Fury give Tony a USB key and told him to watch the video with the rest of the avengers. on the video the reader is talking about how much she loved them and tells each avenger little facts that she loved about them and she thanks them for being her family. I don’t know if that make sense.. sorry I’m french :) thank you if you write my request. bye, I love you xx

It had been a month.

You had gone on a mission alone. They didn’t have a specific time for you to come back, and you were undercover, so the avengers didn’t bat an eyelid when you didn’t call in and didn’t come back in over a month. But then they heard the news.

St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Missouri, November 24, 1895

We are a pair of you know what
And let us state right on this spot,
Though some think baggy things like us
Unworthy of much talk and fuss
We have a right to speak we guess, we’re shapely too
As most confess and swelled with pride we’re glad to vex
The prudes and cranks, of either sex, who have no shapes
To nether limbs, whose chests are flat as tire rims The
Fairy curves that we encase next Venus Milo give a place
And over road and hill and dale through city
Country, turf or trail we speed while wholesome
health we bring, and hear the whizzing
spokes that sing of ills now gone, and
clearer brains the absence of all aches
and pains, now those who laugh are
fools at best we bring the nerveless
gentle rest Away with skirts
hurrah for us Down with this
Silly wicked fuss We’ve come
to stay and on the bike
will cling as long as
ee’r we like

Inspiration <3

A flower starts as a seed. It is small, and may not be seen in the ground. But when watered and given time, it grows. It grows taller and becomes more beautiful. It blooms. Humans are just like flowers.

When you are born, you more or less just cry, eat, and sleep. But then you grow. You grow and you learn. You learn about the world and develop skills. You practice, you devote time. You achieve.


When you learn to ride a bike, you may fall off a lot. It hurts, but you get back up and try again. And again. Then you don’t fall off so much. Then you get good, you go faster and stay on the bike for longer. Before you know it, you’ve learned to ride a bike and don’t need help any more. Life is like riding a bike.


When someone first starts drawing, it might not be a masterpiece - but with time and practice, their art improves more and more.

Give someone a musical instrument for the first time and, chances are, they can’t really play anything on it. But with enough hard work and time, they can end up playing amazing things. 

People that once believed they would never achieve anything have gone on to change the world, or at least change someone’s world.

There are people who once thought they would never meet their heroes, but now have.

There are people who felt imprisoned by their mental or physical illness or differences, but have gone on to achieve incredible things, things that they never thought they would do.


Public speakers may have previously battled with social anxiety.

Athletes may have once been drained of energy by depression. 

Deaf/HoH people can become musicians, blind people can be artists.

People with any mental illness or physical disability can go on to inspire people because, at the end of the day, they are people just like everyone else.

People in the LGBTQIA community can contribute to the world as much as anyone else can, because they are just as human. 

Your ability to do amazing things is not defined by gender, sexuality, or race. It is not defined by your weight or body shape. It is not defined by physical or mental differences like this. These differences purely make us human. Different does not mean less.


People can write off their dreams as impossible, but one day find that they can achieve it if they chase it for long enough. They just have to not listen to the people that say ‘you can’t’ and tell themselves ‘I can’.


Let me tell you my story.


I thought I would never get to see Coldplay in concert. I was wrong, because I’ve now seen them twice, including once in a stadium.

I thought no YouTuber would ever care about me or notice me - but this was not true. I was responded to as recently as last night.

I believed I would always be bad at drawing and could never improve. But practicing it has proved me wrong, as my drawings have in fact got better.

My sleep schedule was non-existent; I was getting up midday or later, and falling asleep at 4/5am or later. Now I fall asleep much earlier, and get up around 9/9.30 every morning.

I was never getting out of the house unless I had a class to go to. But recently, I’ve taken myself out to my local shop on multiple occasions.

When I first started composing, I was writing pieces that were maybe no longer than 30 seconds, and weren’t very interesting. Now, I can write pieces that are 5 minutes or longer, with a vast number of instruments if I want to, and people tell me how much they enjoy them.

I used to hate myself and hurt myself. Now, I’m learning to like myself more and I haven’t harmed myself in years. I used to avoid looking at myself in the mirror, but now I’m able to smile at myself.

I once thought that I would never be mentally strong enough or clever enough to go to university. I’m now a few weeks away from finishing my three-year music degree.

I thought I’d always be hated with no friends. But now I have many friends online, and even a little friendship group in person. 

I believed I would never have the confidence to make videos. But now it’s been nearly a year since my first vlog, I’ve grown in confidence on camera, and I have a wonderful 300+ community subscribed to the channel.

I once hated performing and wouldn’t ever do it. I still don’t find it comfortable, but I do it more now; I’m performing an original album launch in a couple of weeks time.

I used to believe I would never amount to anything or succeed at anything. But I’ve almost finished my degree, I have 300+ subscribers on YouTube, and many people have told me how I’ve helped them and made them happy.

Discovering that I am asexual has not diminished my abilities. Depression and social anxiety have not stopped me achieving those things, even though they tried to. The fact that I may possibly have Asperger’s (self diagnosed but it’s pretty likely), meaning that my mind works differently, hasn’t prevented me from achieving all of those goals. 


There are dreams I have not fulfilled, mountains I haven’t yet climbed…


But my story is not even over yet.


Have obstacles? You’ll overcome them all.

Feel hopeless? It will get better.

Have dreams? Chase them.


Your story is unfinished, you are not on the final chapter yet, and you can’t know the ending because you’ve never read your story before.

Keep writing it. Keep living. Keep dreaming.

I saw your post on executive dysfunction and was wondering if you could explain the differences between executive dysfunction and procrastination please? I want to no more.

In the simplest terms, executive dysfunction is not being able to do something while procrastination is not being willing to do something. However, lets look further into executive dysfunction to see the differences. 

Executive function is a broad term that includes a wide range of brain functions. Some of the abilities controlled by executive function are:

  • Planning and organisation
  • Flexible thinking
  • Monitoring performance
  • Multi-tasking
  • Solving unusual problems
  • Self-awareness
  • Learning rules
  • Social behaviour
  • Making decisions
  • Motivation
  • Initiating appropriate behaviour
  • Inhibiting inappropriate behaviour
  • Controlling emotions
  • Concentrating and taking in information
  • [source]

As you can see, executive dysfunction (ED) can have wide reaching effects and will affect each person differently. One of the most common areas that people with ED struggle is with initiating, organizing, and completing tasks. This can present in a variety of ways. 

Someone may know what they need to do but be unable to get started. For instance, Jane spills a cup of water. Jane knows that it needs to be cleaned up however she has no idea how to get started. To many this may seem like a simple task, but it actually requires several steps. 

  1. Figure out what you have available to use to clean up the spill
  2. Find whatever is being used
  3. Return to the spill
  4. Bend over
  5. Wipe up the spill
  6. Dispose of what was used to clean up

For tasks more complex than cleaning up a spill, there are even more steps and it can be even harder to figure out where to start. 

Similarly, someone may be able to get started but struggle to keep track of the next step in the activity. This can easily lead to becoming overwhelmed when trying to figure out what to do next which can result in not completing the task at hand. 

These aspects of ED can look an awful lot like procrastination, however the internal experience is very different. For someone with ED, they may want desperately to do something but be unable. Some have described it as feeling frozen or stuck. It can be immensely frustrating to want to accomplish something, especially something important, but be unable to start or continue it. 

Procrastination on the other hand is a more conscious choice. Procrastination is being able to do something but pushing it off until a later time. Typically, people procrastinate by pushing off undesirable tasks in favor of more enjoyable activities. 

Now, many people who have been told they procrastinate actually have ED due to autism, ADHD, or mental illness that has gone unrecognized or are unaware that ED is a part of their disorder. 

TLDR; Executive function is wanting to do something but not being able to while procrastination is pushing something off because you don’t want to do it. 

I hope this helps!
