and it's so perfect for these two

bedheadbellies  asked:

Me. Mohn, what do you like better, sunrises or sunsets? (I personally have a hard time choosing between the two, so if you like both than I'm in total agreement with you!)

“That’s tricky! They’re both mesmerizing. I’d say sunsets are my favorite after a long day’s work. Plus, maybe Moon will come out tonight!”

A husband and wife each published an article. It became a case study in online harassment.

Online harassment is a universal problem, but it definitely falls harder on some people than others. In a recent Guardian study of abusive comments on its own articles, eight of its top 10 most abused writers were women, and two were men of color.

Almost everyone experiences some online abuse, but not everyone experiences the same level or intensity of it. For some, online harassment is a nuisance that’s easily shrugged off. For others, it’s not so easy.

That’s why it’s important to step into someone else’s shoes every now and then, like Washington Post pop music critic Chris Richards did. When Richards and his wife each had articles published on the same page of the Post, what happened was almost a perfect A/B test proving how disproportionate harassment works.

It’s easy for some to be skeptical that online harassment is that big a deal, or that it’s worse for people who aren’t white men. It’s easy to say something like, “It’s not because you’re a woman, it’s because they disagree with you,” or, “Whatever, it’s the internet, people are going to be jerks.”

And yes, people disagree and are jerks. But they also tend to be much bigger, nastier jerks to women, people of color, and folks in other marginalized groups.

Women and people of color can shrug off harassment too, of course, and often do. But they also tend to face more, and more vicious, attacks, including attacks that are specifically targeted at their gender or their race. All of that can wear down even those with the thickest skin, and its long-term harms can sneak up on you over time.

This is especially true of journalists and commentators with public platforms who write about controversial topics. And as Amanda Taub pointed out for Vox, this means online harassment can have real harms on journalism if it makes women and people of color reluctant to cover controversial issues.

A: Honestly, after everything that’s happened the past few months, I could use a vacation.
K: Let’s do it. Let’s go on a vacation, just the two of us, anywhere you want.
A: Really? Okay. I’ve always wanted to see what the Spirit World’s like.
K: Sounds perfect.

Happy Two Year Anniversary, Korrasami fandom! (Dec 19th) °˖ ✧◝(○ ヮ ○)◜✧˖ °

Klance Voltron Season 2

In season two of Voltron I need there to be an episode where Keith doesn’t sleep well one night so in the morning he’s all sleepy. Then after training he’s so exhausted and he falls asleep on the couch next to lance and lays on him. At first lance would yell stuff like “get off me!” And try to push him off but he eventually accepts it and puts his arm around Keith and then falls asleep like that.

Then in the morning Keith tries denies everything and Lance gets really mad and yells “We had a bonding moment! I cradled you in my arms!”

I’m still v emotional from today’s episode but also really wanted to post this because apparently, I missed not only one but two birthdays.

So first of all, very happy and very late birthday to the loveliest @bleulily!! I just wanted to say that I’m so glad we started talking and I love screaming with you about yoi, keep being your awesome self! 💕

Secondly, happy birthday to my sweet sinnamon roll Yuuri Katsuki. We’re all very proud of you <3

  • “I found the perfect Xmas tree, let’s go. No. Don’t turn around. They’re not yelling at us. They’re not saying ‘we stole their tree” they’re saying they love our xmas tree. JUST PUT THE TREE IN THE TRUCK AND GO GO GO.” AU

  • “my car is snowed in at my parents house and you’re the dumb plow driver that did the deed. come back here and get me out” AU

The greatest kept secret to achievement is also the most obvious: immediate action.

I started my final weight loss journey in November 2010 just a couple of weeks before the start of the holiday season with all its gatherings and opportunities for stuffing my face.

I could have told myself to wait for the perfect time but I’d been waiting for the perfect time my whole life and it never showed up.

I didn’t know exactly what to eat so I could have waited to research the perfect diet or system. But I couldn’t find it so I just started with a small tweak: no sugar.

What was my secret? I focused on the three habits that would produce the greatest results. I wasn’t perfect but I was moving. Sometimes the journey is two step forwards and one step back but slow progress is still progress.

Waiting is almost never the right choice. Starting small almost always is.

What is one thing you can change today? Be like that snowball rolling down the hill that becomes an avalanche.

Start small. End strong. You’ve got this.

"Felicity" was a freaking ad-lib. How dead are you Matty?

Combined with the fact that the 1x03 script was basically flipped on its head by Stephen and Emily, improvised to give us that perfect first meeting we adore so much… and then this

Suffice it to say I’m very, very dead. (So dead that I’m urging you to join me in my graveyard.)

Because it just reinforces what we’ve always known :

No one ships Olicity like Amell ships Olicity 

And the two of them have improvised on the script to give us some of our most squeal-worthy Olicity moments.

95z being magnets feat. me in the bg

Everyone has said it, I have said it, but I don’t think I will ever get over how phenomenal Skam really is. All the seasons have been superb, but man, season 3 is a work of art. The ability the writers have to take something as life altering as coming out and dealing with mental illness and turning it into a soft portrayal of two boys falling in love? Priceless. I have watched a lot of things over the years (good, bad, great) but I have never once witnessed acting as raw, open, and vulnerable as this. Each scene is so short, and yet every one leaves an impact. First kisses, snuggle seasons, and Eskimo kisses are all woven into a story that at its core is about acceptance. Accepting who you are, faults and all. Learning from your mistakes and growing as a person. And then finally accepting that someone might not be perfect but that’s okay. You will love them anyway. Henrik and Tarjei are without a doubt two of the best actors of our time. And skam will forever be my #1 favorite show.

Wait but if you disagree with JK Rowling's books and her "lack of diversity" then why do you read her books??

Because I’m allowed? Is there a rule somewhere that says I have to like 110% of everything this author does to enjoy the books? Because I love Harry Potter. I grew up with it, I’ve read the books more times than I can count, and there’s a lot about them that are excellent. 

BUT JK has a very popular and far-reaching series but she does nothing to include kids/people who aren’t 95% white and straight. I understand for the original HP series, because it was written in the 90s and a lot of white authors weren’t aware of their privilege or how important diversity can be, but JKR is still writing things, still making money, but doesn’t even try to include more representation. Cursed Child had no additional diversity (except Black Hermione but that wasn’t a decision made by her, but by the casting director), and Fantastic Beasts takes place in 1920 Harlem and it still barely has any major black actors, diversity, or anything. Some of the wizards are apparently Jewish but we wouldn’t know that but watching the show? It’s more of a “oh yeah, sure they are” add on.

JKR also appropriated Native American cultures to write about Ilvermorny and didn’t do research or handle it in a respective manner and it upset a lot of Native American peoples. She’s had so many opportunities to add on to the series and give us a gay Hogwarts student or some better researched non-white students (Cho Chang’s name isn’t even an accurate Chinese name, she just slapped it on there for effect). 

So yeah, I definitely have issues with it. Especially because JKR doesn’t seem to care how many people read her stories. Do you know how important it would be for kids to see themselves in her students and have them be important, major characters? Or at least well-developed and handled respectfully? But she still doesn’t do anything.

I love Harry Potter, but I know the world of it has issues with diversity and representation and I’m not going to blindly ignore that just because I love the books. Doing so would be rude and irresponsible.
