Plants that aid with sleep and breathing problems.

Aloe Vera


Aloe Vera emits oxygen at night, this helps you combat insomnia and improves your overall sleep quality. It is a low maintenance plant that doesn’t need much watering or direct sunlight . It also reproduces easily.

Lavender

Lavender is a plant well known for inducing sleep and to reduce anxiety, the aroma given off by the lavender slows down your heart rate and reduces anxiety levels. Keep the plant in sunlight and water often.

Jasmine

The smell of jasmine has been shown to improve the quality of sleep and increase alertness and productivity. studies have shown that I reduces anxiety levels, leading to a great quality of sleep. Jasmine needs a good amount of sunlight as well as a little shade, the soil also needs to be damp at all times.


English Ivy

It may be beneficial  for those who sufferer from a respiratory problems such as asthma, studies show that English ivy can reduce air moulds to 94% in 12 hours. Keep in a well lit area and keep the soil damp at all times.

Fun facts with Quinn! (This is so I don’t have to repeat myself on a regular basis) Everybody should have learnt this in secondary school/ high-school. As we all know all plants take in the the air we breath, removing the CO2 and releasing Oxygen. DURING THE NIGHT PLANTS STOP THIS PROCESS they only take in the air we breathe, this happens because they don’t have the necessary energy to complete photosynthesis. As you can see in the above post I have listed a few plants that can produce oxygen during the night. Please if you don’t believe me go and look for yourself it takes two seconds to look it up on the internet. Also there are no links for this information because I am no longer in college I do not see the need to write a bibliography for a tumblr post if you really care that much about where the information is sourced go and look for it yourself. Sorry for the shittyness but it is starting to grind my gears. With all my love tumblr ~Quinn!

Solar System: Things to Know This Week

Our solar system is a jewel box filled with a glittering variety of beautiful worlds–and not all of them are planets. This week, we present our solar system’s most marvelous moons.

1. Weird Weather: Titan

Saturn’s hazy moon Titan is larger than Mercury, but its size is not the only way it’s like a planet. Titan has a thick atmosphere, complete with its own “water cycle” – except that it’s way too cold on Titan for liquid water. Instead, rains of liquid hydrocarbons like ethane and methane fall onto icy mountains, run into rivers, and gather into great seas. Our Cassini spacecraft mapped the methane seas with radar, and its cameras even caught a glimpse of sunlight reflecting off the seas’ surface. Learn more about Titan: saturn.jpl.nasa.gov/science/titan/

2. Icy Giant: Ganymede

Jupiter’s moon Ganymede is the largest in the solar system. It’s bigger than Mercury and Pluto, and three-quarters the size of Mars. It’s also the only moon known to have its own magnetic field. Details: solarsystem.nasa.gov/planets/ganymede/indepth

3. Retrograde Rebel: Triton

Triton is Neptune’s largest moon, and the only one in the solar system to orbit in the opposite direction of its planet’s rotation, a retrograde orbit. It may have been captured from the Kuiper Belt, where Pluto orbits. Despite the frigid temperatures there, Triton has cryovolcanic activity – frozen nitrogen sometimes sublimates directly to gas and erupts from geysers on the surface. More on Triton: solarsystem.nasa.gov/planets/triton/indepth

4. Cold Faithful: Enceladus

The most famous geysers in our solar system (outside of those on Earth) belong to Saturn’s moon Enceladus. It’s a small, icy body, but Cassini revealed this world to be one of the solar system’s most scientifically interesting destinations. Geyser-like jets spew water vapor and ice particles from an underground ocean beneath the icy crust of Enceladus. With its global ocean, unique chemistry and internal heat, Enceladus has become a promising lead in our search for worlds where life could exist. Get the details: saturn.jpl.nasa.gov/science/enceladus/

5. Volcano World: Io

Jupiter’s moon Io is subjected to tremendous gravitational forces that cause its surface to bulge up and down by as much as 330 feet (100 m). The result? Io is the most volcanically active body in the Solar System, with hundreds of volcanoes, some erupting lava fountains dozens of miles high. More on Io’s volcanoes: solarsystem.nasa.gov/planets/io/indepth

6. Yin and Yang Moon: Iapetus

When Giovanni Cassini discovered Iapetus in 1671, he observed that one side of this moon of Saturn was bright and the other dark. He noted that he could only see Iapetus on the west side of Saturn, and correctly concluded that Iapetus had one side much darker than the other side. Why? Three centuries later, the Cassini spacecraft solved the puzzle. Dark, reddish dust in Iapetus’s orbital path is swept up and lands on the leading face of the moon. The dark areas absorb energy and become warmer, while uncontaminated areas remain cooler. Learn more: saturn.jpl.nasa.gov/news/2892/cassini-10-years-at-saturn-top-10-discoveries/#nine

7. A Double World: Charon and Pluto

At half the size of Pluto, Charon is the largest of Pluto’s moons and the largest known satellite relative to its parent body. The moon is so big compared to Pluto that Pluto and Charon are sometimes referred to as a double planet system. Charon’s orbit around Pluto takes 6.4 Earth days, and one Pluto rotation (a Pluto day) takes 6.4 Earth days. So from Pluto’s point of view Charon neither rises nor sets, but hovers over the same spot on Pluto’s surface, and the same side of Charon always faces Pluto. Get the details: www.nasa.gov/feature/pluto-and-charon-new-horizons-dynamic-duo

8. “Death Star” Moon: Mimas

Saturn’s moon Mimas has one feature that draws more attention than any other: the crater Herschel, which formed in an impact that nearly shattered the little world. Herschel gives Mimas a distinctive look that prompts an oft-repeated joke. But, yes, it’s a moon. More: olarsystem.nasa.gov/planets/mimas

9. Don’t Be Afraid, It’s Just Phobos

In mythology, Mars is a the god of war, so it’s fitting that its two small moons are called Phobos, “fear,” and Deimos, “terror.” Our Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter caught this look at Phobos, which is roughly 17 miles (27 km) wide. In recent years, NASA scientists have come to think that Phobos will be torn apart by its host planet’s gravity. Details: www.nasa.gov/feature/goddard/phobos-is-falling-apart

Learn more about Phobos: solarsystem.nasa.gov/planets/phobos/indepth

10. The Moon We Know Best

Although decades have passed since astronauts last set foot on its surface, Earth’s moon is far from abandoned. Several robotic missions have continued the exploration. For example, this stunning view of the moon’s famous Tycho crater was captured by our Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, which continues to map the surface in fine detail today.

US drops largest non-nuclear bomb in Afghanistan
The US military has dropped an enormous bomb in Afghanistan, according to four US military officials with direct knowledge of the mission.
By Barbara Starr and Ryan Browne, CNN

The US military has dropped an enormous bomb in Afghanistan, according to four US military officials with direct knowledge of the mission.

A GBU-43/B Massive Ordnance Air Blast Bomb, nicknamed MOAB, was dropped at 7 p.m. local time Thursday, the sources said.

The MOAB is also known as the “mother of all bombs.” A MOAB is a 21,600-pound, GPS-guided munition that is America’s most powerful non-nuclear bomb.

The bomb was dropped by an MC-130 aircraft, operated by Air Force Special Operations Command, according to the military sources.

They said the target was ISIS tunnels and personnel in the Achin district of the Nangarhar province.

The military is currently assessing the damage. Gen. John Nicholson, commander of US forces in Afghanistan, signed off on the use of the bomb, according to the sources.

This is the first time a MOAB has been used in the battlefield, according to the US officials. This munition was developed during the Iraq War.

There’s a reason why Scorpio is a fixed sign, and there’s also reasons why people tend to question how Scorpio is fixed at all. Scorpio however, will always be a fixed sign.

The questioning usually starts due to the planets ruling Scorpio. When people think of the fixed modality, they tend to think of keeping something stable, calm, or static, which is the technical definition of being fixed. However, Scorpio shows that you don’t always have to try to be comfortable and safe to feel stable with yourself. Scorpio actually proposes the opposite: you can gain stability and fixation by being doing the counterintuitive - being volatile and extreme. It implies that sometimes, in order to be truly maintain stability, you must go out of the comfort zone to get it. This is explained through Mars traditionally ruling over Scorpio. Mars always presents an energetic, argumentative energy that goes against the nature of staying unchangeable. That’s why Scorpio is always seen to be a polarizing sign, but that’s not the only place where Scorpio’s extreme nature comes from.

Pluto is the other reason why people can question Scorpio’s fixed modality. Pluto represents transformations, which is an impactful change. When placed next to each other, what Pluto represents also contradicts with the fixed modality. It almost seems that Scorpio is too dynamic to be a fixed sign, when really, Scorpio uses change to maintain stability. You may ask why Scorpio would want to be stable in the first place.

Scorpio wants to be stable so that it can stabilize the inner chaos it has inside itself. After all, stability is the core principle that holds Taurus and Scorpio together as sister signs. Stability and control is what gives Scorpio’s seemingly dangerous volatile nature a sense of direction. Without the idea of stability, Scorpio would truly be a sign of disorganized chaos… But Scorpio is not. Scorpio represents organized chaos. After all, you never see a Scorpio lose its composure in public, since it is good at keeping a scarily calm demeanor. Scorpio will also fix itself on something powerful, but tangible to keep themselves together. This is why Scorpio is known to keep secrets.

The fact that Scorpio is also a water sign also explains its fixed modality. Emotions is the main medium used by the water signs, and emotions are quite fleeting, dynamic, unstable, and irrational at times. Naturally, emotions are preferably (but not always!) hidden for the water signs, and for Scorpio, it keeps its emotions hidden to keep itself in line.

It’s Better To Do It Weirdly Rather Than Not At All

So society as a whole has a pretty intense aversion to weirdness in any of its forms.  This is more intensely directed at people who are different of course.  A fascination with pirates is quirky but fun in most people, in a person whose known to be autistic it’s stupid and childish.

ND people can also catch this heavier if our parents don’t handle the fact that we’re different well.  If our parents react negatively every time we show any different behaviors, that’s going to really effect how we feel about being different, more so than if it’s just people in general.

The problem of course is that if you’re ND you are different, like fundamentally.  There’s going to be all kinds of things that you do differently, or are more awkward for you.  Everything from how you handle laundry, to asking someone out.

The thing to remember, always always always, is it’s better to do the thing differently or awkwardly rather than not at all.  Yes if you awkwardly ask someone out (by the way this is awkward for almost everyone) there maybe a higher chance they’ll say no, but they may say yes.  And yes if you wear a weighted shoulder pad in public you’ll get some weird looks, but it’s better than not going out in public. 

This is especially true when you’re in private.  That’s your fucking space, you will exist how you choose in it.  If you want to dance around in nothing but a bed sheet with a towel wrapped around your head with just a small opening to see out of you fucking do it.  Don’t let people who aren’t even there control you. 

Fuck the haters, you do you, you beautiful shining star you.

I haven’t seen video from my round table at SDCC up here yet, so I just wanted to add a few tidbits from that one that I couldn’t fit into my article.

  • From Dabb. We are definitely going to see more conflict between the boys this season, or at least at the start. Sam wants to keep Jack and help him while Dean wants to kill him. 
  • The top of the season is going to be more emotional/character driven than myth and plot compared to last year. Dean’s in serious mourning, Sam’s keeping it together.
  • The cast hasn’t seen anything from the scooby ep, but Dabb has seen a rough animatic
  • Singer hinted we may see someone from the British men of letters show up, but it sounded like a one off. That plot is definitely resolved.
  • Misha joked that playing a corpse was  his most natural role. 
  • Misha was super cute and tan, jsyk. 
  • Misha has done home made fortune cookies, complete with home printed fortunes and insisted they are very easy to make.
  • Jared said that the keg on Conan was a honest to god surprise and he really didn’t know it was going to happen.
  • Jared also talked about how Sam fears being powerful because it’s gone so wrong in the past, and that makes him feel for Jack
  • Jensen says that they pick up exactly where they left off and he wishes he had known the writers we going in that direction because he would have pitched instead that the boys kept their hiatus beards and looked are scraggly and disheveled to show what bad shape they’re in (GOD I WISH THEY HAD DONE THAT).
  • Jensen talked about who things might ends for Dean and explained that he used to think going out in a blaze of glory, but now he thinks Dean hanging it up and leaving the life, especially if Sam is gone. (I have some video of this answer and it’s lovely).

Hope that’s of interest! 

Sitting next to those guys and talking about the show was a dream come true. 

The Floor is Lava

I’ve been laughing about how the Legends would play the floor is lava game, and it is 100% gold:

Stein doesn’t participate because he sees it as a silly children’s game.

However, Jax would 100% sprint to find a place despite his injured leg. While in stores he has been known to jump into display cases usually with Leonard or Mick by his side.

Kendra just flings herself in the general direction of a table in desperation. While outside, she has been known to use her wings to fly despite the fact that some think it’s cheating.

Carter usually wouldn’t play, but every once in awhile he can be spotted right next to Kendra on a table.

Ray really enjoys this game. He often runs toward a spot with a huge grin on his face; he is also one of the few who don’t mind when they lose.

Rip says he doesn’t participate but whenever he’s sitting he quietly pulls his legs onto the chair.

Mick usually can find a chair located nearby, though there was an incident in a forest where he ended up in a tree. He also 100% is one of the people who initiates the game.

Leonard has played this game for a long time with Lisa, so he knows all the tricks. He has also been known to jump on people (usually Mick but once he gets comfortable with others he’ll jump on them too) to avoid the floor.

Sara is a ninja. She can cling to anything nearby making her unstoppable in the game. She also is usually the game’s instigator and 100% films them while they scramble.

A Titan’s Guide to Warlocks and Hunters: “MUST-KNOWS”

Warlocks:

COMBAT EFFICACY:

VARIABLE

MENTAL STABILITY:

HIGH/VARIABLE

NOTES:

Reliable when it comes to detail-oriented debriefs. Unreliable and long-winded when asked for opinions on events. Show particular eagerness to one-up Hunter-type Guardians; attempts largely ignored by Hunter-type Guardians. Relationship between Warlocks and Hunters is equal parts amusing and infuriating: Titans are often needed to act as go-betweens.

Warlocks make reliable Fireteam members when given specific direction. With too much leeway they are liable to overestimate their talents, and so should be supervised at all times. Pay particular attention to those Warlocks enamored of bone armor. See logs for details.

Further considerations: Skittish, easy to rattle - amusing, but not particularly useful. Excels at close-range combat. They will assume you don’t understand any of the words they use. Bad at games of chance. Terrible at vertical navigation.

BEST COMBAT USE:

Surgical destruction of small-scale targets, intelligence-gathering, scholarly pursuits, encouraging Hunters to participate out of spite.


Hunters:

COMBAT EFFICACY:

HIGH

MENTAL STABILITY:

<REDACTED>

NOTES:

Prone to exaggeration, flights of fancy, misremembering of details both purposeful and otherwise. Vanguard has compared posturing to that of pre-Collapse birds well-known for mating plumage.

All Hunter reports should be treated with suspicion: impossible to know if Guardian in question is being intentionally modest or intentionally arrogant. Have also shown a certain predilection for deliberate misdirection of Titan fireteam members purely for comedic effect (note: NOT funny). Hence, intelligence should be treated as half-measures; Titans are advised to approach combat situations with eyes up and a ready finger on the trigger.

Should be supervised at all times. However, unlike Warlocks, Hunters appear to perform better when given no direction whatsoever, as they are often inclined to follow their own unpredictable whims or act intentionally counter to fireteam orders. Best results come from encouraging maximum chaos and adjusting accordingly. Be certain they are not aware of your manipulations. Play dumb if needed.

Further considerations: similarly fascinated by bone armor; seems to add to general efficacy and unpredictability without equivalent danger of solipsicide. Particular about knives. Moreso about cloaks. Very good at climbing. Hold grudges like nothing else.

BEST COMBAT USE:

Long-rage engagements, winning money at games of chance, getting even, general destruction.

Zachary Levi cast as the lead for DC’s Shazam!

Zachary Levi is going to be Earth’s mightiest mortal.

The actor will star in the DC comic book adaptation Shazam!, which follows a boy named Billy Batson, who can transform into an adult superhero by uttering the magic word “Shazam!” The name is an acronym of the ancient world gods and historical figures Solomon, Hercules, Atlas, Zeus, Achilles and Mercury, from which the big Batson derives his heroic attributes when in adult form.

David F. Sandberg is directing Shazam! for New Line. The studio is high on Sandberg and sees him as a homegrown talent after putting out his first feature Lights Out in 2016, and releasing the director’s Annabelle: Creation, the latest installment of The Conjuring universe. The $15 million horror sequel has earned a big $303 million worldwide since opening in August.

Sandberg is directing Shazam! from a screenplay by Henry Gayden and Darren Lemke. Annabelle: Creationproducer Peter Safran is reuniting with Sandberg for the film, and is also producing DC’s Aquaman for Warner Bros.

This is a big move for New Line and Levi, who is known for comedic roles, and starred in NBC’s hit spy-comedy series Chuck from 2007-2012. He also has superhero credentials and can be seen next week in Marvel Studios’ Thor: Ragnarok as Fandral, one of Thor’s companions. He also recently appeared in NBC’s Heroes Reborn and the network’s Eva Longoria comedy Telenovela.

anonymous asked:

96 with Jungkook. Please. HAHAHA

Prompt: “Is that…is that my bra?”

Pairing: Jungkook x Reader

Genre: Fluff + Humour

Summary: Jungkook is your best friend’s older brother. You were never close with him, but in the past few years, you spread even further apart. Naturally, you’re a little confused when you find a certain something of yours is in his room.

Word count: 914 words


It was the last weekend before school started again. You and your best friend, Mina, were having a sleepover to mourn the end of summer.

You both lay stretched over Mina’s unmade bed, music from her speakers playing softly in the background. It was some indie-sounding song about pilots or something.

“Wanna watch a movie?” Mina asked, growing bored of doing nothing. You had rotated between binge-watching Gilmore Girls, eating, and doing karaoke for the past several hours. “I’m feeling Superbad, what about you?”

“Whatever,” you agreed easily, reaching for Mina’s laptop that was sitting on the nightstand. When you tried to turn it on, you were met with a black screen. “I think your laptop just died.”

Mina groaned in frustration, rolling off the bed to locate her charger. She pulled the chord out from under her bed and tossed it to you.

“This old piece of shit takes ten hours to charge,” Mina sighed. She reached for her phone, which was luckily still charged. “We’re gonna have to use the Chromecast on my TV.”

Mina had a small flatscreen TV attached to her wall. Her older brother, Jungkook, used to use it for gaming. He recently bought a new display, passing along the old TV to Mina. Unfortunately, Mina was technologically inept, leaving you to set everything up.

You sat up, wincing as your bones cracked after hours of inactivity. Stretching, you stood up and inspected the back of the TV. The Chromecast wasn’t plugged in. You voiced this issue out loud.

“Oh, right,” Mina said sheepishly. “Jungkook probably has it. I think he borrowed it awhile ago. Can you go get it? I’m too comfortable to move.”

You hesitated. You hadn’t talked to Jungkook very often in these past few years. You had been close when you were much younger, but the two year age gap seemed to grow infinitely larger once Jungkook had started university. He had also started working out and was intimidatingly good looking.

Mina sensed your nervousness and balked. “Oh my god, Y/N,” she screeched, throwing a pillow in your general direction. “Do not tell me you’re nervous about Jungkook. You’ve known him forever! Even back when he had that stupid haircut. And during the emo phase!”

“You had an emo phase, too!” you retaliated, throwing the pillow back at Mina. You succeeded in hitting her directly in the face.

“We all did!” Mina screamed, sitting up and flailing her arms. “We’ve seen each other at our worst! There’s no shame anymore.”

“But Jungkook’s just so hot now,” you whispered, covering your your flaming cheeks with your hands. “And he’s in university. You know, an older man.”

Mina stifled her wail with the pillow. “Don’t talk to me about my brother ever again,” she grumbled defeatedly. “We’re going to university next year. It’s no big deal. Just go get the damn Chromecast so we can watch the movie and forget this ever happened.”

You sighed and shuffled out of Mina’s room. Jungkook’s bedroom was at the very end of the hall. Taking in Mina’s earlier words, you knew you had no reason to be embarrassed in front of Jungkook. No matter how hot he was.

Taking a deep breath, you knocked on his door.

“Come in,” Jungkook called out.

Tentatively, you turned the doorknob and peeked into his room. Jungkook was stretched out on his bed, playing on his cell phone. One arm was propping up his head, and his muscular biceps were sinful.

“Uh,” you said eloquently. “Hi?”

“Oh, Y/N,” Jungkook smiled, looking up at you. He sat up and set his phone aside. “What’s up?”

“I was wondering if you had the Chromecast,” you explained, wringing your hands to distract from your nervousness. “Mina said–”

Something hanging of Jungkook’s bedpost caught your eye. It was a Pokeball bra, shamelessly on display. It was also terrifyingly familiar.

“Is that…is that my bra?” you squeaked, incredulous.

Jungkook followed your line of vision and blushed furiously. “Oh, fuck! It’s yours?” Jungkook hissed. He snatched it from the bedpost and threw it at you. You caught it with fumbling hands. “Fuck, I swear it’s not what you think. I’m not stealing your bras.”

“Can you elaborate?” you asked, on the borderline of shrieking. You clutched your favourite bra awkwardly by your side, not sure what to do with it.

“I found it in the laundry last week,” Jungkook said, refusing to meet your eyes. “It’s too big Mina’s, so I figured a, uh, friend, left it here on the weekend. I didn’t know you were here.”

“Are you sleeping with people who wear Pokeball bras?” you squealed, slightly embarrassed by the fact Jungkook had seen your most childish undergarment. Your eyes snapped to Jungkook’s, reeling at what he just said. “Oh my god! Have you been bringing girls over the entire time?”

Jungkook shrugged, finally maintaining eye contact. “Our parents are travelling, so whatever,” he smirked. “Is it bothering you? I’m not too loud.”

“I don’t need to know! I don’t need to know,” you chanted as you backed out of the room. Turning on your heel, you hurried down the hall, back to the safety of Mina’s room.

“Hey, Y/N!” Jungkook called after you, his voice taking on a teasing quality. “It’s a cute bra. I wouldn’t mind seeing you in it sometime.”

And if you took Jungkook up on that offer a few weeks later…well, no one had to know.

anonymous asked:

How are you still a fan of Sam after all he's let happen to the fandom and to shippers in his name? You haven't personally been hurt by it so is it easier for you to ignore and pretend none of it ever happened? I'm struggling with my feelings about him and would love your insight.

As I have always said, I fan how I choose, and do my best to allow others the same privilege. If anyone reading this thinks I am talking about you, I promise you, I’m not.

I am sorry that there are people in the fandom who feel hurt. Its a shame that that was the result of something that should have been a fun and light-hearted experience. Please, however, don’t make assumptions, even posed as a question, such as ‘You haven’t personally been hurt by it so is it easier for you to ignore and pretend none of it ever happened?’ You don’t know what I have and haven’t been hurt by in this fandom, or by whom. I’m not pretending or ignoring anything. But I’m also not letting things have more presence in my life than they deserve.

You ask how I can still be a fan of Sam. First of all, I don’t believe that Sam did anything to fans, or allowed anything to be done to fans. I’ll talk more about that later. Even if I believed Sam did do something, that still doesn’t require me to stop supporting him. There is no one on this earth who has ever hurt me as deeply as my husband. No one has ever hurt him as deeply as I have. We don’t set out to hurt each other, but life is messy and people are imperfect. This is why I work every day of my life to practice the brutally hard art of forgiveness. Forgiveness isn’t an ‘If/Then’ equation. It’s not, ‘If this person is submissive and humble and admits all of their faults, then I will forgive.’ Forgiveness is a single party activity that is not dependent on any other person’s actions or opinions. I can forgive my husband when he hurts me because I choose to, whether or not he has asked for forgiveness. Forgiveness is for me, not him. Forgiveness makes me a better, happier, stronger person, more in control of my life. Let me ask you a question: Why would I NOT forgive my husband? Why would I hold on to anger, hurt or frustration? How would it benefit me? What would I get out of it? Heartburn, high blood pressure, anxiety - I don’t need more of that in my life. Besides, I know my husband is a really, really excellent man. His list of positive qualities is miles long. But he is imperfect, as am I. I forgive him, he forgives me, we focus on being better, learning from our mistakes and reveling in the soul fulfilling joy we find in each other. That is not ignoring or pretending, that is choosing our own happiness and health in spite of the messiness that is sharing life with another human. We are all responsible for our own happiness and happiness is a choice. My life is far from perfect and far from easy, but I am a generally happy person because I choose to be. Even if he did do something which hurt me (he didn’t), I can choose to forgive and move on. How can I still be a fan of Sam? Because I choose to be.

You ask how I can still be a fan of Sam after all he’s let happen to the fandom. He didn’t let anything happen to the fandom. We are not some unified group who get together each month and read the minutes and faithfully follow the bullet items on the agenda. Fandoms are very fluid bodies. There is no entrance exam, or document to sign, no oath to swear or dues to pay. People come and go as they please with no explanation due anyone at any time. Therefore, there is no control over what happens in a fandom at any given time, and my perception of this fandom is completely different from another fan, who may not be on Tumblr, but is on Twitter, or who is on Tumblr, but we have no followers in common. There are the Instagram fans, the Facebook fans, the multi-platform fans, the book group fans - and in each of these areas there are subsets of fans such as fanart, fanfiction, shipper, non-shipper, gifmaker, video maker, live tweeter, sam fan, cait fan, toby fan, graham fan, duncan fan, etc, etc, etc. There are thousands upon thousands of people who consider themselves part of this fandom. There are subsets of this fandom I probably haven’t even conceived of. We couldn’t possibly all share the same experiences, even in the same fandom, because there is simply too much diversity on every possible level. Therefore it is literally impossible for anything to happen to the fandom. You believe that something terrible happened to the shippers, but not even that is possible. Who are the shippers? Am I one, do you know how I categorize myself? We are all in control of our own experience. Sometimes that means not engaging or blocking, muting, ignoring, biting your tongue and generally not paying attention to people who don’t deserve your attention. It’s not Sam’s job to tutor us all about how to successfully fan, and it’s not his job to soothe ruffled feathers when one person hurts another person. How could he even begin to know? There are two sides to every story, so even if he was made aware of one side, what about the other side? We are adults. Our problems are our own. Not his. He has enough problems.

Again, you ask how can I still be a fan of Sam after everything that was done in his name. I don’t buy it. I refuse to hold Sam liable for other people’s actions. They are responsible for those actions. I am a Christian. I do not condone the thousands of years of atrocities that have been and continue to be committed in Jesus Christ’s name. I’m pretty sure He doesn’t either. I’m pretty sure Mohammed and Allah and myriad other well known figures don’t condone what was/is done in their names. I also believe that you are making assumptions about what Sam has condoned and what he hasn’t, what he knows and what he doesn’t and what his responsibilities are. Some people see malice where others see sarcasm. Some see apathy where other’s see focus directed somewhere else. We simply don’t know what has gone on behind the scenes, or what people really felt, thought or did. If someone was a horrible bully or troll (and there were several someones) that is on them. They made bad decisions. Really bad decisions. I do know that no one was required to engage with anyone else on Twitter or any other platform. Lucky for me, it isn’t my job in life to judge other people. My job is to do my best to be a good person and be good to other people. I believe we should try to lead by example. I am a fan of Sam because I don’t believe he did anything or allowed anything to be done to fans.

Do you really want to know why I am still a fan of Sam? You think you’ve been hurt by him, or someone associated with him? You think this has caused great distress in your life? Maybe it has. Here is something I know about Sam. His dad left him when he was three. Three years old. I have four kids. I know intimately what it’s like to have a three year old. I know how much they need. I know what it takes to raise a boy to manhood. It’s not easy. Sam had no contact with his dad. None. No advise, no outings, no support, no role model. He had no father. I’m sure this hurt him deeply and continues to hurt him. After years of absolutely no contact with his father, they were reconnected. His dad was dying of cancer. He did not push him away, tell him to die alone, tell him that he left so there could be no relationship, or any of a million other things he could have done. He chose the higher path. He traveled to see his father. He truly connected with him. He learned about him. He go to know him. He offered him love and support as this flawed man was dying. In short, he offered at least some form of forgiveness. I’m sure it was hard for him. I’m sure there were many horrible things he wanted to say. Maybe he did say them. But we know from his own words that it didn’t end on a horrible note. It ended on a positive, healing, healthy note. That’s pretty remarkable and admirable. That’s just one example out of many that illustrate why I think Sam is worthy of my attention. He is a good man. He is generous with his time, talent and wealth. He cares about people and he isn’t afraid to get his hands dirty in the process of helping others.

You are absolutely not required to be a fan of Sam. It’s a supremely optional activity. But my question for you is why would I NOT be a fan of Sam? I have yet to hear a single person give me even one legitimate reason why I shouldn’t be a fan, considering that I should probably hold him to the same standard to which I hold myself. We’re both pretty flawed, messy humans. Isn’t life grand?

Georgian and the Kartvelian languages

When I mention I’m learning Georgian, people don’t always know a lot about the language - I get questions such as “Oh, is that related to Russian?” or “Is that like Turkish?” or such questions. Sometimes people will know Georgian is not related to either Russian or Turkish, but then they’ll ask me if it’s related to Armenian, or otherwise if it’s a language isolate. I thought I’d clear up some of some of the confusion, and offer y’all a look into the history of this unique and fascinating language.

Georgian is not Indo-European - it isn’t related either to Russian or Armenian. It’s not a Turkic language either, nor is it a Semitic language. A few people have tried even connecting it with Basque, but there is no linguistic evidence for this. Rather, Georgian is the largest member of the Kartvelian family - a family named after the Georgian word for a Georgian, ქართველი (kartveli). The other languages in the family are: Mingrelian, Laz, and the highly divergent Svan - in the following paragraphs I’ll talk a little bit about these languages.

Mingrelian, known as მარგალური ნინა (margaluri nina) in Mingrelian, or  მეგრული ენა (megruli ena) in Georgian, is spoken by around 500,000 people in the region of Mingrelia, known as სამარგალო (samargalo) in Mingrelian or სამეგრელო (samegrelo) in Georgian, shown here:

It also had speakers in Abkhazia until the war.

Mingrelian has some sounds that Georgian doesn’t have, such as a glottal stop (the sudden break in the middle of the word uh-oh), written with the letter (though in general, these languages are mostly spoken, and seldom written). In addition, it has some grammatical divergences from Georgian, such as the existence of a few more cases and a separate set of conditional screeves on verbs (if you want to learn more about screeves in Georgian, check out my post). 

Laz, known as ლაზული ნენა (lazuri nena) in Laz or ლაზური ენა (lazuri ena) in Georgian, is spoken by around 22,000 people mostly in Turkey:

The language itself is very similar to Mingrelian - in fact, these languages are sometimes considered two dialects of a single language, but in general are considered separate, especially considering the separation between the Mingrelian-speaking and Laz-speaking communities nowadays.

Svan, known as ლუშნუ ნინ (lušnu nin) in Svan and სვანური ენა (svanuri ena) in Georgian, is spoken by 10,000 people in Svaneti, known as შჳა̈ნ (shwän) in Svan or  სვანეთი (svaneti), shown here: 

As a side note, it’s *incredibly beautiful*:

Due to its remote mountainous setting, Svan is highly divergent from the other Kartvelian languages, forming a separate branch of the family: 

Svan has several sounds not present in any of the other Kartvelian languages, such as /f/, /qʰ/, and /w/, some of which were present in Old Georgian - some dialects even have vowels such as /y/ and /ø/ (the ü and ö of German) or /æ/ (the a in “bat”). Grammatically as well, Svan is highly divergent - it for example makes a distinction between inclusive we (we including you) and exclusive we (not including you), a distinction present in Old Georgian but otherwise nowhere else in the Kartvelian family. It also has two sets of preverbs - directional elements preceding verbs analogous to verbal prefixes like deduct, induct, abduct, etc. - where other Kartvelian languages only have one. 

There’s in addition one important dialect I’ve got to mention - Judaeo-Georgian, known as ყივრული ენა (qivruli ena), is the traditional dialect of the Georgian Jews, a community with a history of over 2000 years in Georgia, and has a speaker base of 85,000, now mostly in Israel. In common with other Jewish languages, it has a large base of Hebrew and Aramaic loanwords - in addition, it has a few distinct differences from standard Georgian, such as the presence of a plural object marker -ე (-e) that does not exist in Standard Georgian, or the dropping of final -s with compensatory lengthening of the previous vowel.

Here are a few Proto-Kartvelian roots, and their descendants on modern Kartvelian languages:

PK: *šwidi “seven”
Georgian: švidi
Mingrelian: škviti
Laz: škvit
Svan: išgwid

PK: *stkwen “y’all”
Georgian: tkven
Mingrelian: tkva(n)
Laz: tkvan
Svan: sgäy

PK: *t’q’ub- “twins”
Georgian: t’q’up-
Mingrelian: t’q’up-, t’q’ub-
Laz: t’q’ub-, t’k’ub-
Svan: t’q’wib-

Ok so I've been following you for a while and I always love when you give opinions on things. So can we discuss what kind of drunks you think each bts member would be? Also what are you? I'm like the super happy and horny drunk like I compliment everyone and always end up making new friends and I'm always ready to fuck as soon as I start getting tipsy lol don't judge me

I’m a pretty happy drunk. I can be shy and reserved in real life, but after drinking… I just want to be everybody’s best friend.  Also, I get real handsy when I’ve been drinking. I want to hug all the people and pet their hair.  

 As for the members…

DRUNK BTS ACCORDING TO ME!!!

Originally posted by jiminrolls

Jin:  Super friendly drunk.  Goes around and introduces himself to everyone in the bar.  Then introduces everyone to each other in the bar. “Hi, I’m Jin who are you? Mike? Nice to meet you Mike.” 5 minutes later “Hi, I’m Jin, who are you? Nancy?  Nice to meet you Nancy.  Have you met my new best friend Mike? No?  Here, come with me so you can meet him.” *drags Nancy across the bar to meet Mike* ALSO – when there is music playing, Jin goes out to the middle of the dance floor to bust out some super cool new dance moves that he just made up.

Yoongi: Oh my god obnoxiously bossy drunk and over explains everything. “Yah! You, stranger in the green hat standing next to me, did I just hear you say that Wu Tang Clan is overrated?  Make room for me because I’m gonna spend the next 30 minutes explaining why you are wrong and no, you may not interrupt me.”  ALSO – sings along, loudly and off key, to every fucking song that comes on – even if he doesn’t know the words.

Hoseok: Sentimental and sappy drunk.  “Jiminie – have I ever told you that I love you?  You are a brother to me, man.  I would do anything for you.  Anything!” *hugs Jimin tightly, nearly cutting off his oxygen* “I love you man! I LOVE YOU!”  *sees lady at bar looking at him hugging Jimin* “Hey lady, look at this guy here – he’s the best guy in the world!  THE BEST! I LOVE THIS DUDE!”  ALSO – drunk dials everyone he knows – everyone.

Namjoon:  That philosophical streak he has when he’s sober?  It gets amped up 100000%. *stares at his glass of scotch on the rocks and turns to random person standing next to him* “Do you ever think about the ephemeral nature of ice?  It starts as liquid, is transformed to solid and the minute you take it out of the freezer to use it, it starts transforming back into liquid. It is destined to return to its natural state.  Do you think the ice is bothered by the external forces causing it to change? Aren’t people exactly the same way? External forces make us change but the change is impermanent the minute those forces are removed…” *person walks away shaking their head but Namjoon carries on with their conversation talking to no one*  ALSO – has a tendency to fall off his bar stool, repeatedly.

Jimin:  Horny drunk.  Embarrassingly horny drunk.  Wanders around the bar making eye contact with random women and licking his lips until he finds one that doesn’t find that overwhelmingly creepy.  Uses cheesy pick-up lines but is completely serious when he says it.  “You know, your body is 65% water.  And I’m thirsty.” Or “If I told you that you had a beautiful body, would you hold it against me?”  Stares at your chest the entire time you talk to him.  Does nothing by grind against you if you agree to dance with him.  ALSO – loses all sense of direction.  Asks where the bathroom is and gets lost walking there even though it was only 15 feet away.

Actual footage of drunk Taehyung not available.  You’ll just have to imagine him naked.

Taehyung: Exactly the same. Only naked.  Nobody knows why, but Taehyung has an overwhelming urge to disrobe whenever he gets drunk.  Usually, he can contain himself enough to only remove his shoes, socks and shirt before running down the street half dressed, but has been known to strip down to his undies and jump in a public fountain on occasion.  The members are constantly watching to make sure he doesn’t drink too much when they are out in public.  ALSO – climbs things; couches, fences, tables, people… he just doesn’t want to keep his feet on the ground.

Jungkook:  Competitive and a show-off.  *turns to random stranger* “You wanna arm wrestle?  Winner pays for the other’s drink.”  Constantly challenging people to a game of darts or pool or whatever is available.  If there is a dance floor, he’ll be out there challenging people to a dance off — only they generally don’t know that’s what he’s doing.  They just think he’s a weird guy who ran up to them and started aggressively dancing while staring them down.   ALSO – in his zeal to do everything better, faster, harder… he tends to knock a lot of stuff over.  Breaks glasses, runs into people, tips over chairs.

I let out a huge sigh of nervousness as I straightened out my red dress. It was my first time making an appearance on the Late Late Show with James Corden, and I was freaking out. 

In my short career as an actress, interviews have become my new norm. The overwhelming amount of uneasiness that would present itself before every press conference, convention, etc. has eased up incredibly. So why was I so anxious about this particular appearance?

Because the love of my life, also known as Harry freaking Styles, was going to be seated inches away from me on the same couch. 

As a long time fan of One Direction, this was like a dream come true. But that’s exactly all it was suppose to be. A dream. Now this dream is becoming a reality, except my hands are sweating like crazy and my heart feels like it’s being a thousand miles an hour. Please, God, let me make it out of this alive. 

“..Two-time Oscar nominee, the ever-so stunning, Y/N Y/L!”

I wiped any trace of nervousness off my face as I made my way onto the stage after stopping to greet some of the fans. The amount of support that was shown always left me in awe.

“It’s so good to see you!” James said as we embraced. 

“You too, thanks for having me!” I replied as we pulled away.

“…Here for his week-long residency, the devilishly handsome, Harry Styles!” 

He walked out in a floral suit with a grin on his face as he greeted fans before making his way to the stage. His rings glinted in the stage lights as he ran his hand through his soft-looking chocolate hair. He looks like a whole snack, AAAAAHHHHHH!

Play it cool, play it cool, I mentally chanted as he embraced me in a hug.

“Nice to meet you,” he said after pulling away. 

“You too,” I replied, and I could only hope that I wasn’t grinning too hard.

“So, Y/N, word has it that you were a huge fan of One Direction, is that true?” James asks as we get settled on the couch. 

“Depends, why’re you asking?” I ask cautiously, causing the audience to laugh. I see Harry smirk a little out of the corner of my eye. 

“No reason, no reason,” James says with a mischievous look in his eye. “But, now that you’ve asked..” he said as he turned his attention to the screen.

“I’m so sorry,” I apologized in advance.

“Why are you apologizing, I haven’t even played the clip yet!”James laughed.

I shook my head before responding. “I just know that whatever’s about to play is going to be so painfully embarrassing, and possibly traumatic, to everyone here.”

“This is gonna be interesting,” Harry spoke up beside me, resulting in another round of laughter from the audience. 

The screen showed a 17-year-old me getting ready in the morning. My hair was wrapped in a bonnet and I wore a fuzzy blue bathrobe as I sang along to Over Again into my toothbrush, occasionally stopping to brush. 

“Oh my goodness,” I mumbled with an embarrassed smile as I remembered the video that my brother secretly took of me. I covered my face with my hands as 17-year-old me continued to sing horribly while making dramatic hand gestures.

“Is it over?” I asked sheepishly as I heard James and the audience laughing beside me. I looked over to see Harry with a finger on his lips in an attempt to hold back his laughter. My face would have been as red as a tomato if it weren’t for my melanin. Thank God.

“I, for one, thought that was quite adorable,” Harry said after the laughter died down. Again, thank God for my melanin. 

__________

“Y/N!” 

I turned around and was surprised to see Harry. The show had just ended and I had gotten changed out of my dress and into something casual.

“Hey, great performance out there! I love the album,” I said as he made his way towards me. I hope that didn’t sound too fangirl-y.

“Thank you, that means a lot to me,” he said genuinely. I smiled before fidgeting with the hair tie on my wrist out of nervousness. 

“Erm, I was wondering if you wanted to grab something to eat? If you want, of course.” 

“I-” I cut myself off and cleared my throat as I could literally feel myself about to shriek out a response. “I’d love too!” I smiled. “Let me just grab my phone.” 

I pinched myself to make sure I wasn’t dreaming before doing a mini-dance in the safety of my dressing room. I grabbed my phone and walked out to Harry, dressed down and still looking perfect as ever in a floral button up and black jeans. 

“Ready?” I nodded and we began heading out.

“Do you like burgers?” he asked. “I know a diner ‘bout a block away that makes the best burgers. Milkshakes are pretty nice, too.”

Love,” I responded with a smile. If I keep smiling like this, my face might fall off.

“Maybe on the way you can show me more of those dance moves from the video,” Harry said as he imitated my hand gestures. I shook my head, bringing my hand up to shield my embarrassment as I let out a laugh.

“Please don’t make me,” I begged.

“Alright, alright,” he chuckled. “Only ‘cause I like you.”

Did I forget to thank God for my melanin?
