and yet with much respect

This is a time when journalism, obviously, is much maligned at the moment. People say that they don’t trust much of what they read in the media and they really don’t have much respect for journalism, and yet at the same time, journalism has been historically one of the ways that presidents have been brought to account. Were it not for journalism, Richard Nixon and the break-in at the Watergate would never have been discovered. … I do find that among people in Washington who write about politics and think about it, we feel like this is exactly the kind of work that we were trained to do. This is exactly the kind of thing we all set out to do, which is to say, we work for the public. Our job here is to hold people in power accountable, and we’re going to do the best we can to do it.
—  Evan Osnos, staff writer for The New Yorker, speaking with Terry Gross

A continuation of this! My first collab with an artist, the base sketch was drawn by @tides-miraculous and then the coloring was done by me. Because god dang it we love JadedFox so much dude. The gentle yet jarring realization that the respect and admiration you feel for this other person who drives you crazy… is perhaps a little more. 

i want to cry in respect and love and appreciation at how much julie and tarjei and henrik /KNOW/ how much even and isak mean to us and they give to us so much love in the form of pictures or scripts at such pivotal moments and times like

harry potter challenge ϟ ¼ favorite villains: barty crouch jr.

Imagine how he will reward me when he finds I have done it for him. I gave you to him - the thing he needed above all to regenerate - and then I killed you for him. I will be honored beyond all other Death Eaters. I will be his dearest, his closest supporter… closer than a son…

Supergirl Mon-*l Rant

When a K*ramel shipper never felt chemistry with an interracial couple but can feel it for a white couple….That’s just plain out racist
It’s simple and clear to see James was and will always be better suited for Kara with how much better he treated and respected her
Yet here we are stuck with her being mistreated yet people see it as a good couple
Like sorry but no….I won’t ever accept this

This is just an insignificantly significant reminder that I love and respect Kim Seokjin in his entirety, everything he’s done for Bangtan, and the way he carries himself as a human being for both ARMYs and anyone around him.

It takes an incredible amount of mental and emotional stamina to recognize that you’re at a point in your life where a relationship would not be in your best interests. It takes even more willpower to resist the urge to fall into useless or even harmful flings with someone who would never love you the way you deserve, yet tells you they could. I used to have so much respect for those people who could accept that they weren’t ready for a relationship and then just simply not date. Now that I’m in that boat myself, I see how hard it is. I feel the pain, the loneliness. I see the empty bed at night and the empty spot beside me at the table when I’m drinking my morning coffee. And dammit, this shit is hard. It’s a lonely period of life. But I keep telling myself to focus on the here and now, to accomplish my goals, to just live life as it’s given to me, and before I know it five years will have passed and the right man will be at my doorstep with a bouquet of black-eyed-susan’s and an arm for me to hold. And it’ll be at that moment that I will look back at this season of life and be so thankful and proud of myself for not wasting my love on someone who didn’t appreciate it.

One character I really admire is Reim. He’s essentially a normal person stuck in a world of fighting and yet he still does pretty well and proves that normal people can be strong too in their own way. Thats admirable and a lesson we really should learn.

why are we so fussy with females in the music industry? we want them to be woke and aware of every little thing that happens and speak out about it being correct and not offending anyone. they also must have talent. not only be able to sing but also put on a great performance of curse, not being too sexual but not too “Disney” either.

but you can count with the fingers of one hand how many MALE artists are woke and have talent or are able to do half of the things females do yet aren’t credited for. stop asking so much to your own fucking genre, respect them for God’s sake

person of interest is not the 100 and i’m tired of it being punished for mistakes it hasn’t made and might never make. especially by people who don’t even watch the fucking show. you’re ruining it for everyone who just wants to be excited and happy about the show coming back after so long and to enjoy the last season. i can understand being worried you know if you’re actually someone who is a fan of the show and loves root and shaw but otherwise i don’t see the point in criticising a show you don’t watch for something it hasn’t done 

¾ of the boys are sick and hurt. 2/4 are closeted. ¼ keeps getting this man cold or whatever. 4/4 are overworked. Give them a break. They don’t like missing shows and probably feel shitty. It’s not like them to not do something like reschedule. If this is your show I’m sure you’d rather watch them healthy and happy rather than sick and miserable. So stop sending fucking hate messages to make already sick and hurt people feel emotionally hurt. And stop listening to the accounts claiming they’re not rescheduling. We don’t know much yet. So let’s sit and respect the boys.

“Yeah, new haircut. Not necessarily new, seeing as the hair was always old. Actually, the hair was dead, which is rather sad. It’s quite morbid, isn’t it, how we have graveyards on top of our heads yet sometimes we treat it with so much more respect than we do actual graveyards?” He grinned quite suddeny. “But yeah, that’s why it looks less messy.”
