and i don't even like sports

You know what we need more of? Beginner’s classes for adults.

It’s supposed to be really, really good for you to keep learning new things as you age. It helps stave off strokes and dementia and Alzheimer’s and improves memory. And hey, learning stuff is fun.

But I really don’t want to be infantilized when I try to learn something. And I definitely don’t learn the way a child does. And honestly, what adult wants to be in the same class as children? Very few.

This occurred to me recently because I’d like to learn how to actually ice skate properly. My parents never signed me up for classes, because it wasn’t a thing they ever cared about or thought about. Now I’m in my twenties and want to learn, and also don’t want to be surrounded by a bunch of eight-year-olds who probably honestly skate better than I do. Because that’s embarrassing, and embarrassment is not how you learn.

Would it be good to lose the social stigma of being worse at something than a child? Yes. Hell yes. But we’ve got to start somewhere, and like I said: adults don’t really learn the way kids do, and a lot of people use these kinds of activities to make friends, and I don’t want to make friends with an eight-year-old, either.

So.

Beginner’s classes for adults. Let adults suck at stuff and learn how to get better and learn new things and broaden their horizons, while still being treated as adults. Classes for writing, for pottery, for chess, for art, for instruments, for singing, for sports, for chemistry. For everything, dammit.

It really is laughable how pundits and fans alike spend so much time taking apart how Arsenal shouldn’t accept never contending for actually winning competitions and for just qualifying like. We don’t? We don’t, the players don’t, Wenger doesn’t. You know who does? The fucking board. We waste so much time discussing Wenger and his role in this but the board is perfectly content spending the bare minimum to build a squad that can consistently qualify for top competitions. Winning them is not even in their interests and they’ve LITERALLY said exactly that. Instead of criticizing what our teams lack we should be demanding accountability from the people who run this TEAM into the ground in the name of a successful business model. Kroenke out and down with anyone who thinks that running a business is more important than the beautiful game

I will always love One Direction. But, I wish media would let it rest for now. I remember everywhere Niall went after “This Town” came out, it seemed like the song, and embarking on a solo career, took a back burner to questions about the band returning. 

Today, asking if they’ve spoken to each other is one thing, but playing a lengthy 1D montage while one is on a program to promote a solo album is just…unnecessary.

They’re not going on shows and giving interviews to talk about 1D. Leave the past in the past for a bit. Give them all time and the opportunity they deserve, to establish themselves as solo artists, without harping on about what was. Start the 1D talk again when the ten year reunion is imminent.

Language!
  • Kageyama: You're such an idiot bean pole, you can't even talk to anyone without making them hate themselves somehow
  • Tsukishima: at least I don't fuck a shrimp cocktail every day during lunch on the school's yoga mats like a fuck boy.
  • Sugawara: Tsukishima language!
  • Tsukishima: what? I spoke perfect Japanese.
How To Ensure A Relationship With The Signs
  • Aries: Do what they want to do; make an effort to play their sport or go and do some physical activity of their choice. (bonus points if you like anime bc weeaboo trash right here).
  • Taurus: Buy them things, show them you can really be there for them, financially or otherwise. Whether it be food or a dress.
  • Gemini: C o m m u n i c a t e. Talk about things that make them happy. Be interested in what they say. Nod and maybe even copy movements. Tell them your opinions and don't yell at them about them - state them rationally. They love?? that??
  • Cancer: These are the people who, when they see you being good with kids, they melt. If you want to get into a Cancer's heart, show them how caring and compassionate you are... and show them you can be an amazing parent.
  • Leo: Be supportive and attentive. Talk to them, show them you care. Like Gemini, listening and paying attention is key. Treating them like they're important and they're valid is a sure way.
  • Virgo: Communicate, discuss things. Show them you are more intelligent than you look. Seem interested in them and everything they say. Ask them to explain things if you don't understand. Ask questions, challenge them intellectually.
  • Libra: Okay lets be honest here they bounce back and forth a lot. You just have to show them that you really do think they're attractive... though usually they are the ones trying to wrap you around their finger... 🌚
  • Scorpio: Show them that you understand. Live with them, go and do crazy shit... but also understand their somewhat introverted tendencies and their complex emotions. Be empathetic... even if you can't see beyond the wall they built up.
  • Sagittarius: Adventure ho! 🛳. Go out and live with them. Make memories. Throw caution to the wind. Laugh. But, don't treat them like they can only be fun with you. Talk to them about what they want. Where they want to go, what they plan to do.
  • Capricorn: A fairly manipulative sign, usually they try to wrap others around their fingers rather than the other way around, but, showing interest in what they do, needing them, and maybe copying some of their lesser mannerisms will do the trick.
  • Aquarius: Be unique. Show them parts of you no one else has seen. Be there when they're too afraid to admit they need help. Go and do those weird things with them, sit down and talk about your adventures with them.
  • Pisces: Listen to what they have to say, don't push their ideas away. Talk to them about their unrealistic ideas and make theories with them and laugh and honestly, just listen to them. Very few take them seriously, but, if you were... That'd mean everything.

Shitty Parenting 101
  • Kid: Can I get my eyes checked? Things are starting to get blurry.
  • Parent: -Sighs loudly- Stop complaining already, you don't need glasses.
  • Kid: It's really hard for me to breathe sometimes. Do I have asthma?
  • Parent: For the last time you don't have asthma. Maybe if you worked out a bit more you could breathe better.
  • Kid: Can you wait for the allergy medicine to kick in? The pollen and dust makes my nose really itchy.
  • Parent: I have allergies too and you don't see me complaining.
  • Kid: I think I might be depressed...
  • Parent: What are you sad about? You have a good life.
  • Kid: I think I might have anxiety issues...
  • Parent: What do you have to be anxious or stressed about?
  • Kid: My chest hurts.
  • Parent: You're such a hypochondriac.
  • Kid: Can I see a therapist?
  • Parent: Why? So you can tell them about how much you hate us?

  • Kid: -Tries to act more like who they feel on the inside-
  • Parent: I don't like it. You should do more of this, and that.

This is really random, but you know what I want?

I want a fic where everyone thinks Chad’s a complete homophobe. I mean he hates musical theatre with a burning passion, he has no love for the drama department, he’s pretty anti-dance, he plays sport, (he’s black)… what more do you want?

And as the Wildcats & Company slowly ingratiate Ryan into their group they start to get worried. They actively try and keep the two from being alone together. Even though they bonded over baseball, everyone still thinks it’s a shitshow waiting to happen. Everyone’s on edge.

Except for Troy. 

Because he’s known Chad since pre-school. And in that time you know who else he knows?

Chad’s Mums. Plural.

And then, when everyone finds out they feel like dicks.

LeBron James and Dwyane Wade are such friendship goals.

Like they’re about to play each other here and LeBron just STRAIGHT UP GLOMPS HIM.

“MY FRIEND. MINE.”

Like LeBron got in trouble with his coach for bro-ing out too much with Wade on the sidelines during a Miami vs Cleveland game.

ALSO NERD BFFS.

And then there’s shit like this:

“If we played ‘The Newlywed Game,’” Union [Wade’s wife] admits, “I don’t know if I’d have more information on my husband than Bron would.”

Wade laughs. Like the fact that whenever he is running late to meet James at a group dinner, there is only one person the finicky Heat guard can entrust with the culinary decision-making. Even when Union is also waiting at the table. “My wife wouldn’t know what to order,” Wade says, “but Bron’s like, I got it.” Two years ago, at just such a dinner in New Orleans, Union could only watch, deeply confused, as James unilaterally picked sea bass for a man who’d expressed a lifelong distaste for fish. “It’s what I wanted,” her husband would later explain, shrugging. “Bron got me on sea bass.”

There are, by Union’s eye-rolling estimates, “a thousand and one instances like this” – each of them underscoring a rapport as heartfelt as it is quotidian. Like how often Wade and James trade not only text messages but voice notes, shamelessly played on speakerphone. (“Texts take away from the tone of what you’re trying to say,” Wade points out.) Or how the two used to stay at each other’s homes during road trips to their respective NBA cities instead of at hotels. Or how relentlessly they crack each other up, in person, without uttering any actual words. (“They’re like twins,” more than one mutual friend suggests.)

LeBron James and Dwyane Wade: an NBA Bromance.

what about like
homecoming or prom
or winter formal
like where are the school dances
imagine how many episodes you could do with that
Imagine everyone dressing up for spirit week (and all the cool outfits you could get from it) like one day could be “60’s day”, “tourist day” or just fun days to dress up for show some school spirit
the homecoming football game (or…whatever sport mcl would do. Does Sweet Amouris even HAVE a football team/field? or cheerleaders? probably not)
asking the person to the dance and AND if you don’t ask anyone you go to the dance with Rosa and Alexy as friends and you get a cute illustration either way
Amber trying to do some antics to make sure she wins prom queen/homecoming queen
like
i want more episodes that incorporate high school experiences

anonymous asked:

you said at a picture of a fan kissing her gf (who was wearing a pens jersey) "gosh if she wasn't a pens fan it'd be cute" like sure don't hate on the team but at least keep ur opinions of the team to urself and be proud that she felt comfortable enough to kiss her gf at a sporting event like goshdarn

So, here are the receipts. And for any of my followers who weren’t a part of the gc, this was the night the Pens/Leafs played in Game 81, aka, the night we made playoffs. The minute after we made it, in fact.

Yuri on Ice is a sports anime about Viktor and Yuuri. Two bros who enjoy doing bro-like things together.

Including:

- naked yoga.

- sleeping together (in a bro way/no homo)

- various public displays of affection from bro-hugs to bro-kisses.

- holding hands so your bro does get lost in a crowd

- getting brogaged so all your friends know what good bros you are!

- bromantic ice dancing in matching outfits while caressing each other’s faces IN A BRO WAY.

No.6 / Yuri on Ice

Since I’ve read so many times about these two anime are the first with same sex couple, I want to say that:
Yes, No.6 is the first in the anime’s history with gay ship.
Yes, NezuShi is canon.
Yes, Yuri on Ice is the first SPORT anime with gay ship canon.
Yes, Victuri is canon.

What it’s extraordinary in Victuri/Yuri on Ice?
1. Yuri on Ice’s surroundings are “real”, well it’s a sport anime so it’s given. (Except for KnB or PoT(anime) where sometimes irrational moves happen lol - I love all the spokon, don’t hate me but admit it there’s “magic”)
While NezuShi/No.6 is set in a perfect-created/invented city, so as it is labeled is a science fiction.
So we can say Victuri is in this society of reality that normally is surprised by gay couples, but not in Yuri on Ice because it’s treated like normal?
Yes, it would be considered even in No.6 but the different surroundings makes YoI greater.
2. In YoI, Victor and Yuri are sportsmen, so even if their bond is justified as coach-student or two skaters who both loves skating, their relationship is more than that as it was shown in the last episode.
In No.6, Nezumi fell in love with Shion immediately when he shouted, and then Shion fell in love too with Nezumi. Their relationship is a bit for survival or is like it seems to me. I know there’s so much to say about No.6, I’ve seen anime and read manga, so it’s not like I don’t know what I’m talking about but they were together to survive and to fight then No.6 so they got to know each other and lived together like a real couple. I think in these situations it happens be in love with your important person.

Two different anime, two different genres, two different relationships.
In a chronological view, yes, the first is No.6 (labeled as Science fiction and dystopia - italian wiki) but if we want to make it in a “reality context” then the first is Yuri on Ice (labeled as Sport - italian wiki).
Both anime are so good, and not only for the ships but even for the plots so watch both~!

I just saw that Duke University has a campaign just like my school’s! Shippensburg University of Pennsylvania launched the “Don’t Say” Initiative this past week and I fell in love with my school even more because of it. Go D2 Athletics!
