and HOW AT THE SAME TIME NOTHING CHANGED

I might be making my third trip to Europe.

I just found out the Austrian branch of my family is having a big family reunion in Tyrol, Austria this October and I was invited to go. I don’t know any of them, except for this one guy and his wife who I haven’t seen in over ten years. We never even confirmed that we were actually related, but we share the same last name (it’s pronounced the same, but spelled differently… probably got changed when my ancestors came to the US). Part of what they’re gonna try to do while we’re all there together is to get some kind of family tree put together and see how far back we can trace our roots, I guess. So I like highkey wanna go and bring @polysprachig with me for both friendship and translation purposes. 

That being said, I should really use this time to whip my ass into shape with my German studies and get serious to I’m not completely helpless.

I also know next to nothing about Austria… like all I know is The Sound of Music and Conchita Wurst. That’s it. So if anyone who sees this knows anything about Austria and the culture and potential fun things to do there, let me know.

Sometimes it makes things hard, but Kuroo doesn’t really mind

2013, the year of Growl was the year of EXO. They broke records and set new ones–in sales, in awards, in recognition. No one questioned whether they deserved it or not because how could you? How could you tell these boys who broke their ankles and pulled their backs that they didn’t sell a million copies and didn’t win every daesang? But they did, and they still do: nothing has changed, except their relief when they win.

EXO has nothing and everything to prove when they comeback. I say this in the same sense as when kpop legends make a comeback. They have nothing to prove because they are the name of kpop in this generation, paving the path and setting records just as seniors before them have done.

At the same time, they have everything to prove because kpop careers aren’t forever. The boys are well aware of this. You can see the anticipation when they wait, the relief when they win; the gratitude to be nominated and present at the ceremony in the first place. When they thank us–that this is only possible because of us–they know how hard we work to put them on top. Kpop careers don’t last forever, but fandoms do.

Annoying things about the types
  • INTJ: they will say "I thought so" every time u reveal something they didn't know to them
  • INFJ: will never truly change their ideas about something, doesn't matter how much effort u put in convincing them
  • ENTP: they literally never shut up
  • ESTP: never stop competing in everything with everyone
  • ISTP: the most pessimistic people ever
  • ISFJ: makes u feel bad for not being altruistic and patient like them
  • ENFJ: capable of hugging and stabbing you at the same time
  • ESFJ: act like they understand what you're talking about before actually thinking about it
  • ENFP: always in need of a cause to live for, never shut up about it
  • ESFP: nothing. ESFPs are perfect beings, 10/10
  • ISTJ: never tells you what they think
  • ESTJ: will repeat the same joke 60 times in a row
  • ISFP: drama queens
  • INTP: honestly, they are weird af
  • ENTJ: will come sharp dressed at a pajama party
  • INFP: can have 3 opinions that contradict each other

i hope you’re all calmer now post-US election, but i need to go tough-love mode and wanna say like…high key it’s time to step up your game

  • all of you who are only NOW coming out saying “latinx followers i love you i’m here for you” but were so pro-obama and posting ‘cute’ gifs of him while ignoring his policies deporting the highest amount of undocumented immigrants than any other president before him
  • all of you who suddenly care about Muslim lives but were so pro-obama and pro-clinton while ignoring both of their policies in the middle east, ignoring the thousands they’ve both killed and traumatized with their drones, ignoring their Pro-Israel policies and being passive in the genocide of Palestinians
  • all of you who have posted about Black Lives Matter and at the same time ignoring how both Obama and Clinton have historically ignored mass incarceration and in fact added to it, and outside of lip-service have done nothing to dramatically change the game for black citizens
  • all of you talking about trans lives but ignoring how no big policies have ever been set in place to protect us? ignoring when Obama and his admin pushed a trans latinx woman from protesting his speech at Pride and defending that action with “there’s a time and place for these things!”

like it’s time to STEP UP and realize the two-party system is not here to protect the truly disenfranchised

THIS is what I mean when I say you were complicit in democratic crimes and Clinton would not have been that big of a game changer. with trump as our new president all we really get is outright honesty about the people already being hated and killed by this country

learn to be aware of actual policies and stop following big figures, focus on local change, focus on reform instead of feel-good speeches from leaders

Idk how to take selfies anymore
(she/they - pls dont call me a girl/lady/woman/female thankz)

I’ve just watched Running with Scissors and I feel so… weird now? I know it’s supposed to be funny in some way, but wtf??? 

The end was sad like, he wanted to stay there, without his family, Star and Jackie. Marco spent 16 YEARS without seeing them and, while on Earth nothing changed, HE changed! As we saw, he really felt the time he lived there (he couldn’t remember his password… that’s because he didn’t use his computer for fuck*ng 16 years).

How can his feelings possibly be the same? I don’t really get how all this happened, tbh. I just want to forget it.

-It’s just a cartoon, this is not gonna change anything. Marco will probably be the same dork but to me it’s just too weird thinking he’s not really 14, idk-

Everyone should be watching this show, but for any women out there, watch episode 6 specifically, which focuses on Marcia Clark’s treatment in the media. This episode was fantastic and heartbreaking at the same time. I just about cried when she excitedly debuted her new haircut, and saw person after person snickering and whispering and pointing. Gawd.

It is so depressing to realize that in 20 years literally nothing has changed. If the OJ trial was happening today you can guarantee we’d be seeing spots on TMZ lambasting Marcia Clark on her appearance. 

How is it that so much time has passed but in this country its the same ole, same ole misogyny? We talk about men is terms of their accomplishments and women in terms of what they’re wearing. It’s disgusting.

Does any one care that Bernie Sanders wears rumpled suits to every event? No we care that the color Hillary Clinton chose was not flattering for her complexion. Give me a fucking break. 

But for reals, this show is extraordinary!

<Rant over>

Maybe i was eight
When i was first asked by my friend
“Who do you like?”

Now the thought had never occured to me
The feeling had never run through me
And although i’ve heard how it felt
When i listened to my friends
I could not help but not feel that way

I never felt that way
So “no one” i said
And by the look on her face
I could just tell
That there was no way

No way that was true
Written in all my friends’ looks
No way that was real
Must my lack of feeling be concealed?

Maybe i was ten
When i was asked again
By the same friend

Same event
Same thing i felt
Nothing had changed

Now those weren’t the only times
So at one point i lied
Said i had liked someone
Though it hadn’t been for a long time
I just wanted to be part of the crowd

Looking back
I think i mixed my mind
Two feelings combined
As if i hadn’t been able to tell them apart
I used someone i had felt stongly about

Replaced friendship for love
Appreciation for adoration
Told part of myself “in the closet you go,
No one can know”

I’m in nineth grade
I am asked again
“No one” i said
Knowing all too well
The response i was gonna get

“That has got to be a lie”
“Don’t you trust us”
“How can you not like anyone?”
I didn’t know how
And oh, how i wished it was a lie

“What do you think of him?”
Nothing
“And of him?”
Nothing still
“But you think they’re cute, right?”

Wrong
There was nothing i felt
I didn’t even care
Except for when i realised
That it didn’t make sense


No One: my asexual journey
unfinished

pippa soo x reader

prompt #176 and #226: “you deserve so much better” “i’m sick of feeling so useless!”

a/n: finally writing some angsty pippa nice. going to try and start writing modern headcanons for the hamilsquad tonight :))

You and Pippa were the happiest couple.

It was like the two of you were puzzle pieces, over time spreading farther away from one another until finally connected and made perfectly for the other. You truly were meant to be.

Grindelwald uses the Imperio on Graves. He makes him act exactly as he were before, except - he gradually starts to change little things. Graves gets colder, distances himself from everyone, though the way he behaves work wise is the same. It is progressive, happening in the course of a few months. Nothing brutal, nothing that would raise suspicion. After a while, people stop wondering and start accepting. Grindelwald does this, so that when he finally takes Graves’ place in the MACUSA, no one will notice anything amiss about him - because that’s how he’s already been behaving for quite some time. That’s Percival Graves. No one questions it.

Deep Breath

Sometimes

It feels like the world is crashing down

On your shoulders

And you have to hold up

Everything

And everyone.


Sometimes

It’s as though

You are the only rock

In a rushing river

And you are covered in

Hands

Scrabbling for purchase.


Sometimes

You are drowning

Supporting so many people

All at the same time.


Sometimes

You can’t breathe

And you’re trapped

And nothing is right

And you’re so

So afraid

Of what you might

Do.


Always

You take a deep breath

And remember

How strong you are

How beautiful you are.


Always

You smile

No matter how hard it may be

You know that you’ve made it

This far

And you can keep going

Day by day.


Always

You appreciate the small things

Because without them

Life would not be the same.


Always

You are grateful

For everything you are

Everything you were

Everything you’ve become

You know things get better

And you’re grateful for what you have

You wouldn’t change it for the world.


Happy Valentines day @just-4-thought!! <3

depression is very real, it’s dangerous and unhealthy. i’ve been there. you feel alone like you have nobody. it’s one of the worst things in life you can ever experience. you feel worthless, feelings of nostalgia/sadness all the time, lack of motivation, you feel like committing suicide etc. & it just happens suddenly. you ask yourself “how did I get here?” you can be the happiest person one day and the next thing you know, you experience something in your life that changes you and nothing feels the same anymore. you don’t know what it feels like until you’ve been there. if anyone is suffering from depression and going through a hard time, I just want you to know that you are not alone. I advice and encourage you to seek professional help, immediately. also to seek God in prayer 🙏🏾 ❤️ (if you need someone to talk to message me i’m here. I may not be a doctor but i’ve been there i’ve experienced a lot and I can try to give you the best advice that I can give. even if you don’t know me and you feel scared, you can email me. rmvalencia94@gmail.com everything will be confidential I promise). I just want to help❤️

FT 515

Irene’s being the creator of dragon slayer magic does sound out of nowhere when it’s first revealed but after learning the whole background I’m pretty fine with the setting.

Irene’s backstory is for explaining where the dragon slayer magic came from and how she has become who she is nowadays. She’s a character who stands alone to have her own reasons to fight against Acnologia (if she wants to). She’s related to Zeref because he changed her back into human form but she has nothing to do with END or his demons. If you think about her without her relationship with Erza, she’s just a new badass character Mashima introduced as a villain who at the same time is the one who created the dragon slayer magic. Mashima’s giving background on the dragon slayer magic and he doesn’t add new meaning or new power to the magic or make Irene a dragon/dragon slayer who can overpower others dragon/dragon slayers. It’s unfair to say he forces Irene’s plot. I can actually see that he has put a lot of thoughts in coming up with Irene’s background and in making her the creator of DS magic while still keeping everything make sense. 

And honestly the plot relevance Erza’s getting from Irene’s backstory is far less than a certain someone from his father. Now all secrets about Irene are revealed, it’s only confirmed that Erza’s a daughter to a Spriggan 12. She doesn’t suddenly has a new reason to defeat or a new relationship with Zeref/END/Acnologia. She doesn’t have a tied with dragons on a personal level like how some people claimed. She doesn’t have a dragon as a dad, or a time traveler, or a clone, or whatever the fans speculate her to be. She’s still the same human Erza who only joins this war to protect her guild. And she doesn’t get lost on her purpose when finding out who her mother is and her mother’s backstory. 

Practically nothing has changed about Erza as a character because of Irene and her backstory. Yet people still call the plot forced on Erza and said she’s a mary sue (yes again these words are the only words some people knows to use whenever Erza appears disregarding what is actually happening in the plot) because of her relationship with Irene. By such logic, every time a new character introduced to have a relationship with the existing cast is forced. And I wonder when their favorite get a background, would they complain about it being forced. 

Chapter Five: Secrets - FFN

The halls of Malfoy Manor were silent. It had always been a quiet place, but where the stillness had once been comforting and familiar, matching the regal setting of the home, it was now suffocating and put him on edge. Nothing was the same. From the moment his father had returned to the Dark Lord, their lives had been on edge. In the beginning, Draco hadn’t realized how severely things would change. The glory that waited for him and his family in the future his father spoke of had entranced him, allowing him to imagine a world where people like him were truly honored and recognized as they deserved to be. The first time he had met the Dark Lord, the man, if he could be called a man, had been just as attractive as his father, not in appearance perhaps, but his words were honey, drawing in Draco’s youth with ease.

Deep inside, I always have this belief, that you’re a good person. That there are times that you have truly tried to be more. But somehow, you were always let down by others, or by the situation. So you wonder to yourself, why is it that no matter how hard I try, the outcome is always the same? And therefore, wouldn’t it be easier to just be an asshole if nothing’s going to change in the end?

anonymous asked:

Okay.You act like one of those popular feminist bitches who always says HATER GONNA HATE XP.

Hey, now, that wasn’t very nice! *gasp*

My response has nothing to do with how many notes I get on my art- if I got 2 notes on my stuff, I would still reply the same way. Why? I have enough crap to deal with in my real life, and I just don’t have time to waste on pointless, petty argument starters online. Arguing about it is literally pointless. I won’t change anyone’s mind, and it will just create bad feelings between people.

Just because I don’t take the bait and start a war over two fictional characters and who I ship them with, it doesn’t mean I’m a feminist bitch. You just threw feminist in there because you know I’m a woman- it has nothing to do with how I respond to negativity.

That previous comment was unwarranted, and I actually found it to be funny. The thing is, I like my fandoms and my fanart, but I don’t care enough to get my panties in a bundle over something so simple. I would say I have my priorities straight. Like I said, I have more important issues to deal with in my day to day life.

How else would you have preferred me to respond to that previous ask? I’m sorry my answer didn’t suit your taste :)

I hate how you give me butterflies every time I see you. I hate how your voice sweetly plays through my head, putting me in a trance. I hate how your touch sends shock waves through my skin. I hate how your eyes twinkle in the light and leave me drowning in the colour. I hate how your personality leaves me grasping for more. I hate how you’re so imperfectly perfect. I hate how you haunt my dreams, leaving me to wake up yearning for you. But, most of all, I hate how I know you’ll never feel the same way.
—  and nothing will ever be done to change it.
