Learning-Anywhere

7

Since making the first set, I’ve seen many comments being added about how animation meant so much to so many people. That it’s changed their life, their view on the world, and how it’s taught them valuable life lessons they couldn’t have learned from anywhere else. Don’t you see how important animation can be? How so many lessons, so many feelings and emotions can be carefully packaged into a twenty minute show? They’ll only continue to make our lives warp into something magnificent.

okay, final thoughts on this mess.

while it’s true that we need to “keep fighting”, it’s important to remember that we’re not fighting people. we’re fighting hateful ideas and ignorance.

we need to educate & listen to each other. yes even (and especially) when the other person is a huge bigot, because we’re never going to change their mind by making fun of them. 

we need to explain and educate and fight the problem, not the people.

honestly i feel kinda bad for trump supporters. they’re worried and scared and genuinely think they’ve done a good thing.
we need to learn from this election that we’re not gonna change any of that by hating them or ignoring them. unfortunately. that would be a lot easier.

this fight requires a lot of work and conversation with people you don’t wanna talk to.

and i hate to say it, but the same thing goes for afd voters! it’s nice to just say fuck them they’re idiots. it’s nice and easy and feels good. 

but the uncomfortable truth is that that’s not going to get us anywhere. 

  • Faith: Only run if you're being chased is what I always say. (Aaron pants) Eh, breathe into that. (offers paper bag)
  • Aaron: I'm all right. I'm all right.
  • Faith: Love... I may not have much to offer as your granny. But I've got big ears and broad shoulders.
  • Aaron: I've messed everything up. For Liv. I'm the one bit of security she's got. And I'm going to go to jail in a couple of days.
  • Faith: We call that uni in our family. They learn more there than anywhere.
  • Aaron: Have you been inside?
  • Faith: Ran off with the catalogue money. I was top dog, mind.
  • Aaron: I'm trying to keep it... I'm trying to keep it together for everyone. But...
  • Faith: You're scared.
  • Aaron: Yeah.
  • Faith: Yeah, I think that's normal. But you can look on the bright side.
  • Aaron: Is there one?
  • aith: You'll be back quick as a flash and it'll be as if you've never been away.
  • Aaron: My granny, eh? Top dog.
  • Faith: Yeah, well... Second to top dog. (both laugh) Now come on, take me for a gin. (he starts to wheel her off) Whoo!
  • Aaron: Come on then.
  • Faith: Forward!

Neon Genesis Evangelion Gifset Series - PARENTHOOD

“Through the blur, I wondered if I was alone or if other parents felt the same way I did - that everything involving our children was painful in some way. The emotions, whether they were joy, sorrow, love or pride, were so deep and sharp that in the end they left you raw, exposed and yes, in pain. The human heart was not designed to beat outside the human body and yet, each child represented just that - a parent’s heart bared, beating forever outside its chest.” (x)

someone: why bother reading free books from gutenberg.org when they were all written like 100 years ago?

someone: I know it costs $15 for a movie ticket and you’re poor, but look, the movie won’t be in theaters forever! you have to see it NOW!

someone: lol you like that song? that song is from, like, my parents’ childhood hahaha

someone: ummmm I know that [horrible piece of world news] sucked and all but you do realize it happened almost five years ago right? why are you still talking about it?

me: time… is a thing… that exists…???

I think even though show has deviated quite a bit from the original telenovela, I think Jennie might want to keep the basics the same by having Jafael as endgame because their original counterparts were endgame. Also for a telenovela, Michael's death was shocking but surprisingly not dramatic at all.

I haven’t watched the original telenovela so I’ll take your word for it lol. And I feel like if you’ve watched enough telenovelas his death wasn’t even the worst or most surprising in the genre but I was shook, especially since they played us to think he was well lmao.

Need more deets about Emily. How old is she? Who does she resemble?

Emily is 26 years old during the summer of 2012.  She’s just a whisker under 5′4″ (a quarter of an inch under, to be precise) and, like her father, very round and stocky.  She’s got some squish, but there’s also a lot of muscle under the squish.

Her build is most similar to her father’s - she’s got the Pines nose, the square jaw.  But her coloring (eyes and hair) is the same as her mother’s, and like her mother, she’s got a nice amount of freckles.

Emily’s got a degree in Chemistry from Portland State (she went there on a boxing scholarship), but she hasn’t decided what to do with it yet, so she’s spending the summer with her parents, helping her dad run his business.  It’s not like Stan’s gonna tell her she can’t stay with him; he loves his baby girl.  But her nosiness (another way she takes after her mother) made it difficult to keep the portal a secret from her.

On the bright side, whenever Dipper and Mabel wanted to go on a monster hunt or whatever, Emily was available to keep her cousins from getting hurt.  

Dating Jacob Kowalski Would Include…

– Visiting him at the bakery.

– Helping him clean batter out of his hair and sometimes, somehow, ending up with it in your hair.

– Taste testing new recipes.

– Trying to keep your magic a secret even though you know he can be trusted with your secret.

– Listening to stories of the war.

– Holding hands while taking long walks through the park or just about anywhere.

– Learning to do things the No-Maj way and finding out just how hard life would be without magic.

– Loving kisses and deep hugs.

– Calling him your teddy bear and cuddling up with him at night.

– Getting the best Valentine’s Day treats ever because he made them specially for you.

– Watching him blush and get flustered after he says something romantic.

– Helping out at the bakery sometimes while either waiting for him to close shop or because you have the time and want to help him out.

"So Mav, what's this sea goddess thing you talk about?"

            @tektxn

| |The sea I so loved, she rejects me, she rejects me!:;

                             “Ya’ ain’t never heard of er’?
                    She’s what watches over th’ whole Ocean.
         North, East, West, South Blues - Grand Line, an’ the New World.

A broad palm rose, in order to indicate the currently gentle waves beneath the vessel, before pausing momentarily, a bottle held to scarred lips, indulging, and being extended to the gargantuan youth questioning him.
            She was everything he knew about love - everything that one could divulge about safety and warmth.. . the sea…. allowed one to feel surrounded by nothing but acceptance, no pain… no suffering, just love.
        He hadn’t learned this anywhere else, not as a child.
His beloved sea had saved him, time and time again, when he was just a tiny kid, surrounded by everything that didn’t want something like him alive, and reminded him he had a heart beat.

                   “Ya’ ever seen a barrel floatin’ on the water?
            Those’re offerings, to er’.
       Ye’ can take what’s inside, but ye’ have ta put somethin’ back in,
            ta’ thank her, else she’ll get mad at ye’.
                            She saved m’life, so I owe her every damn thing.
               She loved me, once, so I jus’ keep tellin’ her ‘I love you’ right back.
       Maybe it’ll mean somethin’, some day.

                                                                      ;;Take me then, it’s where I belong, the sea, sea,
                                                                                                  by the wrathful God of the sea.|

Inquisitive blue eyes heavy with tiredness stared at the young man with the interesting clothes. He’s never seen anyone with such flashy clothing aside from the Queen and those who served her back in England. The man clad in yellow robes did look the part to be somewhat related to a royal family, but assumptions won’t get William anywhere. He learned that the hard way.

“Excuse me. Are you royalty, by any chance?” The blonde samurai spoke up behind the person, obviously a few inches taller than him.

Just booked like 10 different trips and the joy and hopeful anticipation it fills me with is unparalleled. If I’ve learned anything: travel. Go anywhere that remotely interests you. Go places that don’t on the surface, and challenge yourself to find something to fall in love with. Splurge if you can. Do it on a shoestring budget if you can’t. Step outside of your comfort zone. Meet new people. Broaden your mind. Immerse yourself in and learn the nuances of other cultures, traditions, mindsets. The concept and comfort of domesticity, the romance of home, is far more potent when contrasted with experiences outside of and in direct opposition to it.
