another country

I was 13 when someone asked me what I wanted to be when I was older. I replied with simply - “rich”. I was 16 when someone asked me again what I wanted in the future and who I wanted to be. I know everyone expected me to say “rich” or I wanted to be a Doctor, Lawyer or Teacher, just like I once would have. But in the space of 3 years I had learned more and more about life, and who I wanted to be. I learned that some things cannot be taught in the classroom. It is in the heartbreak and healing that we learn the most. It is in the different cities and countries that we learn about different cultures and the world. It is in the late nights with friends sitting on the porch eating cold pizza, that we learn life isn’t always bad. It’s in the feeling we get when we are about to board the plane to go to another country, that we learn happiness is not just a boy calling you back after ignoring you for days, but in the beauty of the world. I had learned in the space of 3 years that life can be kind, cruel but also beautiful. I had learned that travelling to places outside the silly and boring town that I lived in can be refreshing for the soul. So, ask me again what I want to be when I’m older and I will tell you that I want to be a lover of the world, and not a lover of money.

Hi sorry if this is a question you get a lot but how do you change your Spotify to another country?

hiiii, for starters, you have to change your vpn to whichever country you want to stream from. that means you’ll have to download browsec (for example) for google chrome and go to the browsec icon at the top of the webpage and change the country. then…on the spotify website, scroll aaall the way to the bottom of the page and click on the flag and change it to your country of choice. next go to your account settings and change your location, the country of your vpn should be an option. click on it and change the postal code and you should be set. to double check, go to ‘browse’ on the spotify website and check to see which country’s charts you have 💖

(For the snowflake anon)I moved to another country last year for college and my boyfriend stayed in my home town. Long distance is rough, I was really sad and lonely but honestly, if it's the right person it is worth it. My bf and i have been together for over two and a half years. Just communicate, skype call, send them pics of everything, your college, selfies, and bring them on that adventure with you. I send my bf pics of food I cook or cute bujo spreads. It's not easy, but there is a way.

(honestly i am Living for this concept where y’all send in anons to support each other u guys are so sweet)

So most of your guidelines are based off of U.S. law, but how will you deal with international laws? What if something that's illegal to depict in the US isn't illegal in another country?

All of our guidelines are, actually! As a business, we’re legally required to follow the law of the land that we’re in. We can’t be expected to follow the laws of other countries.

For example, it’s illegal to depict LGBT material in some countries. Should we adhere to those laws as well? Of course not! Nor can we be held liable for it, unless we have a physical office there!

Couple years back i was in my dad’s room using his music equipment to play my music. I like the loudness and clarity so i would use the aux cord to plug in my phone.

At the time, i was tryna get “Tha Crossroads” by Bone Thugz-N-Harmony down word for word.

So I’m rappin over the instrumental goin in and my dad was like “That’s really good! you wrote that?” fam… 😂😂😂

i laughed because i was confused. I’m like this is Bone thugs… how you don’t know them? This song is from his generation. Came out when he was like 19. But then again, he is from another country so there was the culture barrier / disconnect. It didn’t click for me back then that american pop culture /music sometimes doesn’t reach everyone, and not everyone is in the same page lol

it’s a vast world out there. 😂

  • what he says: im fine
  • what he means: how has eighteen-year-old otabek altin had the time to become a competitive figure skater and also build a reputation as a DJ that allows him to show up in another country and be like "hey lemme dj at your club" and the club is like "k," how does he have time to maintain both these careers with the level of fame he apparently has, how does he do it, does the poor boy sleep, does he even have time to eat enough is he okay, is he taking care of himself i'm very worried about him and while i support his career choices im very perplexed by them
But it’s not possible to forget anybody you were that hung up on, who was that hung up on you. You can’t forget anything that hurt so badly, went so deep, and changed the world forever. It’s not possible to forget anybody you’ve destroyed.

On 8th April Crown Princess Victoria and her husband Prince Daniel visited the site of the recent terror attacks in Stockholm. When asked by the press how Sweden can move past the tragedy the Crown Princess said only one word: tillsammans or together. Her word choice has already become a symbol of a rallying cry for unity and love across social media, amongst monarchists and republicans alike.

But you couldn’t help it, could you? Because in your heart of hearts, like Barclay and Delahay and Fowler and Menzies, you still believe, in spite of your talk of equality and fraternity, you still believe some people are better than others because of the way they make love. Now, think of that for a lifetime. Think of the names: pansy, nancy, fairy, fruit, brown-nose.
