and it sounds like everyone's having problems

It kind of sucks to be a fan who doesn't have a preferred era of sonic games. I like the classic games, adventure games, unleashed, black knight, colors, and lost world. Yet people seem to want to say that their games are good and the others are bad, and I'm here like "Can we just say they each have some good in them. Do you feel the same wash?

Despite how my posts may sound at times, I’m pretty much the same. I don’t prefer one specific part of Sonic’s history over all the rest. (For example, I may prefer the Classic style of colours and environments overall, but I also enjoy plenty of the Modern cast.)

But yeah, I think the main problem is that a lot of fans abide by a “we’re the Rebels, everyone else is the Empire” type of mindset, and it’s… not a healthy or realistic one to have, obviously.

alcohol culture is so wild…people all over fb will be sharing a meme like “i can’t have just one glass of wine, it’s always 2 bottles and 3 people i can never look in the eye again” as if that’s normal? but if a meme like that was going around about cocaine or any other drug, everyone would be like “sounds like a drug problem bruh” 

alcoholism is SO normalized and it’s such a toxic environment honestly 

People in this fandom act as if everyone who’s not a “big larrie” is this helpless child whose just being led along by the Big Mean Larries, as if we have no concept of formulating thought on our own. I have a lot of problems with some larries, sure, but it’s so insulting when people (read: ex larries) pretend they actually give a crap, just for the sake of sounding morally superior because they don’t ship larry anymore. Like, shut up, janet, you’re utterly transparent and quite a nuisance. 

Captain America is a hero that stands for too many conservative western values, which is not to be tolerated in the forsaken landscape of current Marvel comics. So they had to tinker with the character motivations of the hero and the villain. Since all they have in their arsenal is everyone I don’t like is Hitler they had their Hitler character just start saying things their political opponents would say. Try to confuse and muddle the ideological playing field by claiming the hero and the villain want the same thing. Make even mild patriotism synonymous with third reich authoritarian nationalism. Saying hey let’s have borders and waging war on the world to extend your borders are the same thing right? When your opposition has completely reasonable arguments…just put them in the mouth of an insane dictator right… let’s make them sound ridiculous. Problem is not everyone is that stupid. When you call even minimal defense of American (western) values nazism (hydra) to anyone with half a brain this doesn’t discredit the values Captain America stood for it simply discredits the villain status of your villains. They tried to make Cap the bad guy but instead made Red Skull a good guy. If you make hydra synonymous with conservative/libertarian values you just made hydra a good thing and to anyone whose beliefs are based in ideas and not just labels they would have no problem making it the new label/symbol for those beliefs.

Of course none of this made for a good story, none of it was believable. It was a failed ideological assassination attempt of a fictional character. I was never a big Captain America fan I don’t care about the comics too much, it just blows my mind how petty and transparent that whole thing was. It annoys me how entertainment value was tossed out the window and pushing a political agenda took the steering wheel. And I absolutely love that the response was complete rejection and the resounding response of “hail hydra.”

My ship went down in a sea of sound, when I woke up alone I had                                                                  everything.

LET ME TELL YOU A THING. Alex Gaskarth is one of the strongest humans that I know of. I know, a lot of people suffer from social anxiety, but not everyone has the courage or desire to do what he does. He doesn’t let his mental illness stop him from doing what he loves, with three of his favorite people, every day.

I have heard probably every single version of this song, (partially because I’m ATL trash, partially because I love its message and its helped me so so so so much) and this version is my absolute favorite. That’s because he almost sounds sadder than the other versions. Like, he knows that this is a problem for him, and he thinks he has it until under control until he gets in front of everyone and his lungs start to falter again. The way he sings /i’m flesh and bone, i’m a rolling fucking stone/ kills me in every version, but this one specifically because he recognizes that hes just human, and he cannot help feeling this way, and even though he can’t change it, he knows how to live with it.

Another thing, over and over again he says sing. It’s almost like hes afraid they won’t if he doesn’t ask over and over again, which again plays on his social anxiety. 

Therapy, you were never a friend to me. You can choke on your misery.

(IM SORRY I JUST LOVE HIM AND THIS SONG SO MUCH. IT HOLDS A SPECIAL PLACE IN MY HEART, AND IF YOU DONT THINK THIS IS ANYWHERE TRUE, TELL ME WHAT YOU THINK BECAUSE I WANNA KNOW!! :))

Christmas DLC Translations + FAQ

Hello everyone! It’s been a while again, and we’ve gotten a whole lot of questions about the new Christmas DLC and whether we’ll be translating things like the main menu voice clips and the ringtones. So here are some quick answers:

Will you be translating the Christmas DLC stuff?

Yup!

I had the most ridiculous time with getting the audio (things not working, then working without sound, then not working again, etc etc), but I was finally able to solve the problem this morning. I now have all of the main menu clips and the bonus text/email/ringtones queued up for translation by our lovely team.

Will you be uploading the audio here?

Not sure.

We still have yet to receive a reply to my email, though it’s been quite a while so I may email Cheritz again to ask about it. Hopefully we’ll get the go-ahead and can post the accompanying audio with the translated text.

If you can’t post the audio, how will you post the translations?

We’ll make a text post for the text tones, email tones, and ringtones, and a post for the main menu audio with the characters’ names and the translation of what they say beneath it. That’s not too much of a problem for the text/email/ringtones, though you won’t be able to match what you hear the characters say in the main menu to the translation if you don’t know Korean, unfortunately, as it is random.

Also on that note, as with the Halloween update each character has exactly three different voice clips on the main menu.

Hey, do you know how to [insert question about Xmas DLC here]?

We’re not a question-answer blog on all things MysMe, so you should probably ask a different blog. I take general MysMe questions on my other blog @zentherainbowunicorn, though I haven’t played through all the Christmas DLC yet so you’ll either have to wait for an answer or can ask another blog, as well. Thank you!


Hope everyone is enjoying their holidays!

Trees tøp

When I first joined the clique I didn’t understand why everyone loved trees so much. I liked it ok but each song eventually developed a new meaning in my head. I realized that Tyler wrote trees when he was about 17! That’s crazy! Trees is in three different albums, regional at best and no phun intended have a very different sound than vessel. I feel like this is because during npi and rab he was still dealing with these feelings of invisibility and fear and in vessel era even tho he still has fears and problems he has overcome the ones that caused him so much pain when he was writing this song. Trees, to me, represents moving foreword and overcoming obstacles

Very over people who feel morally superior because they don’t participate in the ‘system’ of voting. Jokes on you have fun being surprised as fuck when shitty laws and props get passed in your town. Like I know these people whose answer to how shitty our two candidates are is not to vote but like…medical marijuana was on the ballot here, there was a prop that would impede the availability of solar panels, there was a prop that would allow war vets to have lowered property taxes and things like that…

and what’s double funny is the people who go ‘okay but that doesn’t have anything to do with me’. Guess what? One day, a prop will be DIRECTLY related to your life. Now imagine if everyone not in your situation went :shrug: ‘not my problem’

Like I said, just don’t be mad. Everyone talks about how people are being ‘guilted’ into voting but tbh that just sounds so immature. 

What you are is being held responsible for your participation or lack thereof.

anonymous asked:

What would be some difficulties someone with autism would face as a cop? I know it would differ from individual to individual since it seems experiences with autism vary widely (I think? I'm still learning), but generally speaking. Like sensory overload might be an issue, right?

You’re right, every autistic person is very different. We don’t personally know any who have worked as police officers, and we have a hard time imagining that any of us would want to, to be honest, but hey, everyone is an individual and anything is possible.

There are a lot of possible problems to face here. Sensory overload is a very strong possibility. Sirens are awful for a lot of us. The sound of gunshots could be extraordinarily painful too. If there is a standard uniform, it might be hard to tolerate – many of us have trouble with many parts of clothing, even the seams on socks, and have trouble finding any item of clothing that doesn’t cause us irritation or pain all day.  

In fact, hypersensitivity in general could be a huge issue - including hyperempathy. Not all autistic people are sensitive in this way, but many are. Hypersensitive/hyperempathetic people are easily overwhelmed by violence and seeing others suffer. Mod Aira says: “I know that if I saw someone get shot, I would be incapacitated for a long time. There’s no possible way I could do the shooting myself. I’d be more likely to let myself get killed than to kill someone.”

However, plenty of autistic people report having normal or low empathy, so that wouldn’t be a problem for everyone. 

Another huge hurdle would be dealing with unexpected situations. Most of us have an important need for routine and we need to plan in advance what we are going to do and what’s going to happen to us, or we can get really anxious and overwhelmed. This comes from a combination of factors.

One factor is sensory overload: we have to process every detail of information that comes in through our senses and can’t ignore the parts that aren’t important. This varies greatly from person to person, but Mod Aira can offer an example from her own experience: “When I want to cross the street, I can’t just check to see if there are any cars coming and then go. My brain has to process the gum and cigarette butts stuck to the ground, the cracks in the pavement, the clouds in the sky, the people walking by, and so on and so forth, until I finally confirm that there are no cars there, and it takes time. And when the supermarket changes its layout, I can stand in an aisle for five or ten minutes looking for an item that’s right in front of me, because I just can’t get through all the new details quickly enough.” This is the case for many of us. For some, it can take a matter of seconds to process situations like this, and for others, it can take longer. But if we have to take in new information and react instantly, it’s just not possible. Just imagine how long it would take Aira to identify a small and unexpected detail like a gun in someone’s hand.

Another very large factor is anxiety. Most of us have a need for routine and get upset when it is disrupted. When we know what’s going to happen, we can prepare ourselves for it, plan for it. We get used to it and we don’t have to worry or fear. But when something changes unexpectedly, we have to deal with something we haven’t prepared for, and we can’t do that quickly. It can be very overwhelming and we can have meltdowns or shutdowns over it. If we know that our routine is going to be disrupted, we can have serious anxiety problems, trouble sleeping, and other issues. Many of us have spent a lot of sleepless nights terrified of the events of the next day – even fun and positive ones like parties and seeing old friends – because we didn’t know exactly what was going to happen, and our anxiety went through the roof.

Someone who works as a cop would not be able to develop much of a routine. So much of the job is dealing with and reacting to the unexpected, the combination of constant anxiety and possible sensory overload would be extremely stressful. It’s quite likely that the person would wind up overloaded a lot of the time, and possibly even having meltdowns – something that would be very, very dangerous for a police officer to have happen during work.

In fact, anyone with a history of anxiety or meltdowns would probably never be accepted into the police force to begin with. But not all autistic people have a history – it’s perfectly possible that the person would get the job, start working, and suddenly be facing a level of stress, anxiety, and overload they’ve never had to deal with before. This could trigger meltdowns for the first time in their life – something which could certainly cost them their job, if not worse.

Looking at the physical side of things, a lot of us have issues with motor skills and coordination, and dyspraxia is a frequent comorbidity. Shooting a gun, fighting, running and climbing fences (all things you see in cop movies – we don’t really know the details of what actual cops do on a day-to-day basis) could be difficult. So could driving a car, a thing most cops definitely have to do. Many autistic people have difficulty driving, and some can’t do it at all. Some can do it, but are constantly afraid while doing so, because they have to take in so many details at such a high speed, and can easily miss something critical and wind up in a car accident.

Finally, there’s the social aspect. Autistic people tend to have a lot of trouble with face-to-face communication. For some of us, it’s difficult to understand what people are saying, especially if we can’t see their mouths. For others, nonverbal body language is completely impossible to understand. Many of us lose the ability to communicate under stressful situations. And most of us have trouble with eye contact. I would imagine that working as a cop would mean having to pay attention to the small, subtle parts of communication - imagine talking to a suspect and having no idea if they are lying, even if it’s obvious to everyone else. Imagine dealing with a smartmouthed kid who hasn’t actually done anything illegal, but being unable to identify sarcasm. Imagine being unable to lie convincingly, but needing to do so in order to save a life. Imagine being a cop and having to rely on the honesty of the words people say, rather than the way they say them. This could get dangerous really fast. In fact, many autistic people actually have trouble with the police, because our body language is seen as rude or inappropriate, and we answer questions in a literal way - even when we’ve done nothing wrong, we might be seen as resisting arrest or insulting a police officer. We might even be seen as dangerous when we’re not.

All this is not to say it’s impossible for an autistic person to be a police officer (and if any of our followers have experience with this, we’d be happy to hear from you!). In fact, if realistically and respectfully written, this could make a very compelling story - the autistic person so determined to become a cop that they overcome the many obstacles placed in their way (or tragically fail). Maybe it’s their special interest, and they spend their whole life working towards it. It’s also important to keep in mind, as always, that any one autistic person might not have all of the above issues. But your character will have a LOT of hurdles to overcome, and you need to address those in your story.

16 things to know before dating an INFJ

Out of 16 different personality types INFJs make the rarest combination of people to exist, which means they’re often misunderstood and dating them can be a challenging adventure. They have the greatest capacity for love and empathy within a relationship but their tendency to be extremely gullible and idealistic can create problems. Here are some things to be mindful of when dating this personality type.


1. If you’re looking for a temporary romance with them they likely won’t even bother. INFJs prefer long, lasting relationships and avoid short-term relationships if they can. Casual dating and FWB situations just don’t give them the type of deep connection they need to feel fulfilled.

2. They sometimes forget to take care of themselves. INFJs have a habit of taking care of everyone else around them before they take care of themselves. While this sounds sweet and selfless the problem comes when they realize they’ve overextended themselves so much they end up exhausted and needing to shut everyone else out. Don’t take offense to this. They won’t forget about you. INFJs just need a bit of time to recharge and refocus.

3. They’ll always be thinking about what your next fun date should be. INFJ’s are highly idealistic and will always dream big when it comes to your relationship. They always have in the back of their mind your favorite activities, places to go, and preferences when making plans. Although they can enjoy social, more adventurous dates, an ideal date for INFJs are places where you two can spend time one-on-one.

4. Someone who puts a lot of emphasis on labels, designers, or money is immediately off putting. The most attractive person to an INFJ is someone that isn’t materialistic and all about wealth. While big gestures are nice and appreciated, INFJs find happiness in the simple details in life and get just as much out of sitting with you and hearing your stories over coffee than doing anything else.

5. INFJs can be loyal to a fault but this doesn’t mean it’s an opportunity to take advantage of them. They’re able to see the best in people. Even if they recognize a relationship is failing they have a hard time detaching themselves from their significant other. They want to believe in their partner so much, often at the risk of sacrificing their own happiness and comfort.

6. INFJs can be very strange people. This isn’t to say that this is a bad thing, but when you’re one of the rarest personality types chances are there’s going to be naturally something a bit unusual going on. INFJs are very complex and at times even their own complexity can confuse them. They’re aware they’re odd and because of their own self-awareness they always feel misunderstood. Feeling like another person truly ‘gets them’ is a very rare thing for them to experience.

7. They’ll always be able to pick up on when you’re lying or being deceptive. INFJs have an acute sensitivity for when stories just don’t seem to add up and omitting the facts is just as bad as lying to them.

8. INFJs love helping people, especially the person they’re dating. Seriously, it’s one of the things in life that gives them great pleasure. If you’re extremely independent or the type to shy away from receiving help from the person you’re dating you might run into some problems with an INFJ. They see their help, care, and generosity as a way to express their love.

9. Sometimes it can be hard for them to open up. Although INFJs are outwardly warm and engaging they often struggle with the ability to be as open and less guarded as other personality types. They don’t reveal as much about themselves as fast their partner does because they don’t want to invest in someone else they feel could possibly disappear overnight.

10. They typically don’t enjoy PDA. When out in public or at a gathering or party the the most appreciated form of affection is a subtle touch once in awhile to let them know you’re there.

11. Don’t ever pressure them to make more friends or socialize more. INFJs are more interested in having a few solid relationships with people they can truly connect with and be themselves around over dozens of acquaintances with connections that only scratch the surface.

12. They’re extremely future oriented, especially in relationships. They’re always thinking about long-term possibilities in life whether it’s the starting of a new relationship or the longevity of a project. If an INFJ isn’t able to see you as a long-term partner they likely aren’t going to keep pursing you.

13. INFJs can be easily affected by the energy around them, including yours. They need strong partners to be in a truly healthy and fulfilling relationship for them. If their significant other is unstable or constantly has a lot of conflict going on this can completely drain them.

14. They will very rarely initiate anything. INFJs prefer when other people make the initial contact when it comes to dating. Asking for a number, making plans for a first date – these things will have to be done by you. An INFJ takes careful note of who shows interest and whether the energy they put into someone else is reciprocated or not.

15. If it seems like they’re off in another world, it’s probably because they are. INFJs are great at building rich inner lives and daydreaming allows them to live out their fantasies.

16. They’ll always be down to listen to what you have to say. Listening and communicating are INFJs bread and butter. Whether you’re having a bad day at work and need to vent or you just want to talk late into the night about anything and everything an INFJ will contently sit and listen to what’s on your mind.

anonymous asked:

i'm Sure if we talked to black mexicans they would call bullshit on the 'all mexicans are mixed and poc!!' like this honestly sounds the narrative of a latinos who were taught to be color blind (which is a pretty frequent thing)

Actually, there has been a lot of conversations with black mexicans (not african-mexicans as some people say) about how they have been erased from history until recently PRECISELY because we tend to lump Everyone not born in Spain during the conquest as Mexicans, and thus that makes harder to see the individual problems of each group within the country.

However, the solution for this is NOT to say “if you are too pale, then you are not mestizo”, nor to adapt the exact same practices as the USA regarding their race-specific solutions (that frankly, are not solutions).

The thing is? 98% of the time, a light-skinned mexican won’t tell a black-skinned mexican that he is NOT mexican. Nor that he has to “go back to Cuba” or “Africa”. 98% of the time, the discrimination will be economy-based.

Mexican gene pool, in specific mestizo gene pool, is incredibly diverse. You can have a pair of brothers where one is brown skinned, black haired, and the other is blonde and blue eyed and BOTH are children of the exact same set of parents, no cheating involved.

Would it be better for Mexican tv to hire more dark-skinned actors? Of course. And more importantly, in main roles. Would it be better for Mexican history to highlight that the black population during the colony was suffering a different type of domination than the native population? Of course.

HOWEVER neither of those things apply to the fact that latinamerican actors in the USA, no matter how light skinned they are, if they choose to embrace their mexican roots by keeping their names (Ricardo Montalban, Diego Luna, Salma Hayek) have a harder time to get roles than one that chooses not to keep their names in order to get more roles. And in THAT sense, they are minorities IN THE USA. And won’t get offered the same roles, as say, Chris Evans, Pratt, and Hemsworth. So because of THAT, calling Diego Luna “White” and sneering at those who are happy that there’s a latin american lead, a minority, a POC lead, in FRIGGING STAR WARS, right up an center in the main role, is pretty much whitewashing him.

What’s next? Are you going to tell me that Oscar Isaac is also white and thus Poe Dameron doesn’t count as PoC because he’s TOO white for you?

(Of course, if Oscar Isaac and Diego Luna were in a casting about a latin american story, in a latin american production, WE’d be having a completely different conversation right now)

Hi.I have an idea for a book.Its about four friends who try to make their last year in high school their best year.One fall in love,the other have problems with his parents and the other two fall for each other.Sounds like a good story? Any advice?

I say go for it, but watch out for cliches. It’s a nice, fun idea, but it is used very often. You just have to make sure you put your own, unique spins on the story to make it purely yours, and not like everyone elses. Try not to go the typical route with the story. Get creative. Another tip for stories like this, make sure your characters are relatable. The kind of idea you have is usually called “a slice of life” story. Meant to be realistic and relatable. If you make the characters too simple and boring but with over complex and unrealistic life problems,your readers will not be able to get into their stories. So make sure your characters are unique, but realistic. Hope this helps! -B

anonymous asked:

You have more than one boyfriend? How does that work? Do they know about eachother? Do you love one more than the others?

I was waiting for this question! A perfect time to explain. :)

So, I and my two boyfriends are in a polyamorous relationship. They know about each other, and are in-fact good friends. They also flirt with each other sometimes, which is completely adorable! I love them both equally, and put neither before the other (although I live with one, and sadly the other is a few states away for the time being).

Relationships like this aren’t for everyone, but it works for us. We all have a lot of trust in each other, and it works because we all maintain the upmost of honesty and communication. If one person has a problem, we discuss it then and there and work on a solution. So, it may sound crazy, but it’s actually super healthy and loving!

Thanks for asking. If you have any more questions about polyamory, i’d be happy to answer them, or point you in the direction of some outside resources. :)

Because i dont think that anyone could love me. Everyone else is better than me. How could i expect that they love me?. I'm ugly, pathetic, stupid, weird. I just feel like if it was better if i didn't exist. Sorry if this sounds to sad. But i really don't trust anyone to tell this. What is they reject me? That...would hurt me so bad.

Your problem is that you care about what unimportant people think. You have friends, maybe they will leave one day but you will find new friends, thats part of growing up, but the friends you have now care about you now, you are not alone

Two doses of max dose concerta does not sound like a good prescription... I take 54 mg and it did make me lose quite s bit of weight (concurrent with zoloft tho and i gain weight with depression). The concerta wears off too quick so my psychiatrist prescribed immediate release ritalin 10mg for half way through the day. That person should seriously consider getting a new doctor or something because that sounds like too much concerta (then again i am 17 so idont know for sure)

I think max dose Concerta is actually 72mg but that’s why I asked about it. I personally would prefer a short-acting second dose if a long-acting med wore off really quickly, but I don’t have that problem and everyone’s different. :)
