THE SIGNS BASED OFF PEOPLE I'VE MET

This is all a matter of opinion so don’t come for me, okay? Deal.

Aries 🔥♈️: hot headed af and don’t say that ur not!! admire that y'all have no prob speaking your mind. can be major sweeties at times though.

Taurus 🌎♉️: fierce as hell and you can never tell them anything cause they’re always right. OVERDRAMATIC!!! lowkey crybabies 😂 their love is pure af

Gemini 🌬♊️: LEAVE THEM ALONE. I’ve never met one I haven’t liked. Emotional and overdramatic but loveable and smart af. They peep everything so they’re mad cautious. Forgiving/understanding as hell but they remember every word. always thinking. best 2 for 1 deal 👌🏼

Cancer 💧♋️: ANGELS. Idk why the sudden slander?? they love with their whole being but also will not tolerate being fucked with. smart as hell. and funny af. Smiles/laughs a lot. Their skin is so clear cos they cry about everything.

Leo 🔥♌️: ooze self confidence even tho lowkey you’re insecure. NO CHILL. Honest af. Will hype anybody/anything but mainly themselves. Much love for this sign 💓

Virgo 🌎♍️: it’s 50/50 w y'all, I either love you or hate you. OVERANALYZE IS UR MIDDLE NAME. Big time lovers. Some are sweet as hell too. Always look out for themselves.

Libra 🌬♎️: I LOVE ALL OF U. Honestly one of the most real and honest signs. Best friends to have. Personalities are 🔥 All around dope sign ❤️ Probably the most woke after Aquarius’ ✊🏽✨

Sagittarius 🔥♐️: BORDERLINE CRAZY. ALL OF U. Your chill setting is at a -5. Work ethic is bomb af. Second to Leos on being in love w themselves🙄

Scorpio 💧♏️: the definition of “do no harm but take no shit”. Sarcastic as FUCK but has that soft ass side they show 2% of the population. Will literally murder somebody who hurts or fucks with someone they care about. Loyal as hell. On the low sensitive lil babies.

Capricorn 🌎♑️: Idk many so I can’t rly talk about y'all like that but the one I do know is chill. Likes to play cold/emotionless until they know you. Will do anything for those they care about. Witty.

Aquarius 🌬♒️: lemme not be a basic bitch and say we’re the best but…I mean🤷🏼‍♀️ for the most part cool, annoying at times cos we think we know everything. hates the majority, loves few. Solid ass friend. The stereotype about us loving aliens/always being high is 100% true

Pisces 💧♓️: I CANNOT STAND ANY OF YOU!!! (with one exception) BIGGEST whiners/crybabies!! Everything is your fault bc they’re soft af. BE GONE DEMONS.

they're basically sitting on each other's laps im .

sdfklsjdlfksdf honestly the best part of this video might have been the editing and the 34029348 close up/zoomed in shots of them sitting right on top of each other. and i love how they were actually fully overlapping but then they still turned to face each other half the time they were talking,,, like sTOP why do they gravitate towards each other so!!! much!!!!!! it’s gross!!!!!!!!!!!

anonymous asked:

can you plz plz plz explain that tweet about hasidic jews? and your tag "#just shake the asparagus and smell the lemon just go with it" i am sooo christian and soooo confused! much luv man. xx

OH MY GOD I’M CRYING WITH LAUGHTER OKAY this one?

So the fact that a non jew wouldn’t get it is kind of the joke don’t feel bad! We grow up around it our whole lives so we never really realize exactly how weird our traditions are until we have to interact with other people. Right now, we’re celebrating the jewish holiday of Sukkot, which is basically our fall celebration of the beginning of the agricultural season. The bEST part of it is that we have to build what’s called a Sukkah- which is kind of like a GIANT FUCKING WOODEN FORT IT’S SO COOL with thatched roofs to see the stars through, and after the religious days have passed we’re supposed to decorate it, hang out, eat sleep and party in it! It has a lot of religious significance pertaining to dependence on god and the earth and the Exodus. In a secular way, and in the way I was raised as well, it’s a mitzvah to invite people in to celebrate with you! Jewish or not! Like the story of Abraham and the Angels. 

What that tweet is referring to though is the lulav and the etrog, and that’s where things get HILARIOUS.

SO the lulav isn’t asparagus and the etrog isn’t a lemon. An etrog is a a sweet smelling citron that represents the heart because it’s most commonly found in Israel, Palestine, and other significant MENA areas which many Jews are native to. It has a little bit to do with the diaspora as well i think. Anyway, the funny thing is that an etrog has to be kosher certified and meet to certain aesthetic and storing standards AND WE DON’T EVEN GET TO EAT IT DURING THE HOLIDAY. PLUS it’s a status symbol too. like the family who can get the nicest, biggest etrog has something to really brag about. What we’re meant to do is entwine it with the lulav, a collection of a palm frond, myrtle, and willow, hold it in our right hands, and then… i’m not kidding.. shake it. You shake it north south east west up and down while saying the prayers to bring in blessings from every corner of the earth, especially rain. it’s basically a jewish rain dance but hey we’re the only people who have ever been able to grow tomatoes in the Negev so maybe it works. It also represents Jewish unity and unity with G-d and the world around you, so it’s an incredibly fulfilling thing to do. So back to that tweet, it’s really funny and endearing to think of a Hasidic man standing on the street with a lulav just trying to make some pals and give people the opportunity to participate with no concept of how insane we look to other people. Tbh he probably doesn’t care because it’s a rad holiday and I love it very much. 

This has been your friendly jewish history lesson of the day

Anyway I had a really funny dream about hl so I guess it’s story time. Gather around, kiddos

For back story I was a host on some show where I was asking Harry and Louis basic questions about each other to see who could get the most correct answers. Simple, until I moved onto the last question.

I asked, “How many times have you proposed to each other?” Louis buzzed in and shouted 26! I was about to tell him he’s correct when Harry interrupted by shouting 27 and literally getting down on one knee to propose.

You’d think Louis would be happy, but he was like, “You’re so competitive, Harry. Why are you like this?” Meanwhile Harry was just giggling, still holding a ring box open. So then Louis took a deep breath and shouted 28 and he got down on one knee with an open ring box.

It was ridiculous but the best part was them basically having a staring contest from the floor while they exchanged their rings.

College Essential "Hacks"

This is kinda similar to my blog post “Things I Forgot/ Nearly Forgot to Bring to College”. In this blog post, I’ll be telling you things that you should definitely bring to college, and also some side advice.

Room:

A twin set fits fine on the twin extra long beds in the dorms. The difference between a twin & a twin XL is only a few inches in length. You honestly can’t tell that my bed set is a twin unless you really analyze it. It fits fine.

Mattress pads are awesome and they make the bed so much more comfortable. 

Bring light blankets. I don’t know about you but at home, I had those heavy, thick blankets. But don’t bring those. The blankets/ throws you find in a bed set will do. (**DEPENDS ON WHERE YOUR COLLEGE IS THOUGH**)

Bathroom: 

Bring shower sandals. Maybe even two pairs. They’re great for showering (a MUST-HAVE), but also work fine for a quick trip to the bathroom/ lounge/ etc. Shower sandals are basically just cheap flip-flops.

ALL RIGHT WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT THE HEARTBREAKING "SOMETHINGS MISSING"

REANT INBOUND.
ALRIGHT YALL. I DONT KNOW ABOUT YALL, BUT MY FAVORITE FUCKING SONG IN COME FROM AWAY BESIDES STOP THE WORLD IS “SOMETHINGS MISSING”. NOW A FUCK TON OF YOU ARE GOING LIKE “HAYLEY WHAT THE FUCKITY FUCK??????” AND LET ME EXPLAIN WHY. IT IS THE MOST PERFECT SONG TO DESCRIBE EVERYONE. LETS LOOK AT THE LYRICS. “Something’s gone Out the airplane window, I can see Manhattan And there’s still smoke And suddenly I’m afraid all over again And there are others afraid too.” THIS IS ALMOST THE EXACT SAME STRUCTURE FOR THE ENTIRE SONG. SOMETHINGS _____________. THEN AN EXPLANATION. THEY LOST THEIR SENSE OF SECURITY IN THE ATTACKS. NEXT EXAMPLE. “Something’s changed My flat is the same as I left it But emptier Quieter I start to unpack And I find the camera.” LIKE I SAID. SAME FUCKING STRUCTURE BUT DIFFERENT WORD. NOW THE MUSIC. AT FIRST IT STARTS OFF ALL RAINDROPPY (it’s now a word) AND THEN IT GOES INTO WHAT I LIKE TO CALL REALIZATION MODE. MINOR KEY. SLOWER AND THE MUSIC KINDA FADES INTO THE BACK GROUND AS THEY REALIZE WHAT HAPPENED AND TRY TO DEAL^tm. IT THEN COMES BACK FULL FORCE AS PEOPLE ARE STARTING TO BREAK DOWN. THE STAGING IN THIS IS FUCKING PERFECT. ITS BASICALLY EVERYONE MOVES ON THE SOMETHINGS ___________ AND THEN FREEZE. BUT THE BEST PART IS THAT THE TURNTABLE IS GOING FROM THE FIRST SOMETHINGS ______ TO “YOU HAVE REACHED GANDER ACADEMY” AND HOLY FUCK OKAY ITS HELLA HEARTBREAKING. AND IF YOU SEE IT LIVE/ SEE THE BOOTLEG EVERYONES FACE IS SO HEARTBROKEN AND HURT AND WORRIED. THEN WHEN YOU REACH “YOU ARE HERE AT THE END OF A MOMENT” ITS LIGHTS ON JUST BEULAH AND HANNAH AND EVERYONE IS STILL, BUT THEY START MOVING ON THE NEXT SOMETHINGS BLANK. LISTEN CLOSE BECAUSE YOU GET A HELLA COOL THING BECAUSE NICK SAYS “ACROSS THE ATLANTIC” AND ITS SO HEARTBREAKING AND HES JUST ASTONISHED?? AND EVERYONE IS JUST REALLY FUCKING HEARTBROKEN. AND THEN THE HARMONIES REALLY HIT IT TF HOME. IM CRYING NOW BUT IT NEEDED TO BE SAID.

(I’m the one in white and my beautiful wife is the one in black)

dear @taylorswift

okay that beginning made me sound so calm and just… I’m not, okay so… I MARRIED MY BEST FRIEND

AGSHAJAJKAKAKAKAJ <—

so basically, you’ve been such a massive part of my life ever since I was a 13 year old girl, I’ve genuinely and literally grown up with you.

A lot happened in my life from the age of 13 to 21, which I am today, and the one thing that never changed was what you and your music has meant to me this whole entire time.

I remember being 13, I was feeling so lonely and lost. My friends weren’t really being my friends and I was always on the outside. I used to go straight from school to my room at home, listening to your songs and looking up the chords to “A Place In This World”, your songs gave me so much comfort and safety, I can’t even tell you how grateful I am.

I remember sitting in that same bedroom, June 15th 2011, at midnight literally playing the guitar and singing fifteen, because it was finally my fifteenth birthday.

2011 was going to be my year, I was going to be fifteen and everything was going to change; I was going to write and perform my own songs for the very first time outside my bedroom, I was going to find the courage to make some friends at the school I’d now attended for a year instead of having lunch with the teachers and doing homework on my breaks, I was finally going to have my first kiss and hopefully see you live in concert for the very first time.

I thought this was going to be one of the best years of my life but it ended up being one of the worst instead. I lost two relatives that same summer, one in a car accident and one to cancer… I lost another relative (my closest aunt) not to death but as she got diagnosed with cancer she wanted to move from Sweden to Miami to be with her daughters and grandchild…

I was also found in the middle of my parents divorce a few months later that same year, yup 2011 wasn’t the greatest year. But I survived.

And you were still there, with your music.

Now from my worst year to one of my absolute best years. October 2014- 2015, I finally came to terms with my sexuality and accepted the fact that I was gay. I met this girl on twitter through a TV show called The Fosters (which is the show that actually gave me that little extra push to come out to myself) we quickly bonded and became the greatest of friends. Her name was Anna and she was a year younger than me and lived in England but even though there was distance between us, we spoke every single day, it even came to the point where we were Skyping literally 24/7 (we’d skype after school, all evening, take the laptop out to the dinner table when we had to leave our bedrooms to have dinner with our families and we even had skype on overnight. We woke up together and got ready and left for school, then repeated the whole thing again).

In January I managed to convince my dad to let me go visit Anna in England and she managed to convince her mum to have me stay with them for a whole week during half term in February. I booked my tickets and we were over the moon with excitement.

We kinda knew we were more than friends but thought it was ridiculous since we hadn’t even met in person yet. Although, we knew each other inside out already, since all we could pretty much do over skype was talk.
We didn’t want to rush anything which is why we didn’t put a label on our relationship, we were clearly giggly and in love and cute but wanted to wait until the day we met since it was just around the corner.

But we didn’t of course (we were too impatient lol) we made it official January 27th 2015 and finally got to be in each others arms for the first time February Friday the 13th 2015.
It was truly love at first sight. (I also had my first kiss that same night omgjfjfjfjfj)

Ever since that night, 13 has been our lucky number.
13 have had such a massive impact on our relationship you couldn’t even imagine. There’s so much I cannot even name them all, we used to keep a journal of it all until it all got too much haha. But later that year July 13th in fact, we moved in together. I moved from my home in sweden to live with the love of my life and her family in England.

Did I mention that this was one of the best years of my life?????? Oh wait!!! I ALSO had tickets to see YOU in concert for the first time ever. After six years of waiting I could FINALLY fly out to another country to see you!! I was 18 turning 19 so my dad had no say in this, finally. I flew out to Germany to see you perform in cologne June 19th and June 20th 2015!
Honestly two of my greatest nights ever. Thank you for being the absolute best and making that whole concert so insanely beautiful.
(Ps. The reason I saw you in cologne and not London was bc I got tickets way before knowing I’d be with Anna and moving to England and all that which was a bummer bc I couldn’t take Anna but we’ll try our VERY BEST to see you on the reputation tour ;) )

Anyways, I’m rambling but also GUESS WHAT SEAT I WAS ON THE FIRST TIME I ATTENDED ONE OF YOUR CONCERTS????? SEAT 13!! ROW 13!! BLOCK 103!! (Okay ignore the 0 in that last one and it’s basically block 13)

I also saw Andrea walking right pass my row at the beginning of the show and was about to go up to her and leave her a letter for you and give her a hug BUT my shoe got stuck in my 1989 gym bag thingy so that didn’t happen lololol just my luck. But I still had the most magical time!!

Fast forward - last August (2016) me and Anna got our own place in Sweden and are now living here with our two lil puppies bella and junior which is so beautiful and magical. I am struggling a lot with anxiety and some depression but am at the same time the happiest and luckiest I’ve ever been so I’m so so grateful.

and now….I am Mrs. Nordin, I am married, I HAVE A WIFE. Basically what I’m trying to say is that sooooooooo much has happened throughout the years and you’ve honestly been such a big part of it ever since I was 13, through my darkest and through my happiest moments. You and your music have always been there for me and always made me smile, feel safe and just content and never alone.

So I obviously wanted to share this big thing with you❤️

We got married September 25th 2017 ( I’ll casually drop a link to our wedding video here bc I can’t stop rewatching it and want to share it with you as well: https://youtu.be/fm-MA8YSza8 )

I haven’t posted this sooner because we literally just got back from our honeymoon in Cuba and haven’t had much WiFi but I’m literally writing this on the bus on our way from the airport so I think I’ve done pretty good!!

anyways, thank you for everything you’ve done for me and so many others🌷

I love you. Always.

I am getting really annoyed with how my employers handle hours. So far, there are 2 people who do the schedules. I work in customer service, and when I ask for more hours, the asst mngr says no or says she’ll call me if someone calls out, but the mngr says ok and adds on hours. And since a bridge re-opened near us AND a competitor closed down near us, business is noticeably higher. About every other rush, multiple rushes in a day, management members are called to get onto a register or to bag groceries, even some people in grocery are called, and this is everyday. So clearly there is a lack of on-clock people, but so many people aren’t getting enough hours. AND THEY SET UP A “WE’RE HIRING” DISPLAY. I keep getting told I am so fast and such a good member in CS and then I feel like I’m getting shit on. I used to get consistently at least 25hr/wk. Used to make at least $250. Last week it was 27, now it’s 22 this week. And it’s impossible to get full-time without becoming a manager. My manager is always doing stocking, and the asst mngr is basically the CS mngr. The best part? In the past 2 years of working here, there was ONE GROUP MEETING. ONE. I fear bothering my manager about this will lead to me getting less hours for complaining. I just want hours and to remain in my positon where I’m good and I know what I’m doing. I like working here, I actually want to do work unlike some of my cruddy coworkers. You wouldn’t believe how many bagger boys are slow and lazy and hide somewhere for part of their shift and NO ONE says anything. Why the disrespect on me? 😢

tbh the best part of the ajin s2 finale (to me)

college!au bts yoongi
  • majors in fine arts
  • he’s usually always seen at a desk in the corner of the library drawing sketches in his notebook while listening to music
  • and most of the time, he spends his whole day in there without getting up at all
  • and he’s completely okay with working the entire time if it means no social interactions with anyone at school and lmao everyone knows this
  • the only people he’s ever gotten close with are seokjin and hoseok and even then, he still sometimes gets annoyed with their presence
  • he’s heavily committed to his major, constantly creating dozens of new ideas and immediately sketching them in his notebook no matter where he’s at or what he’s doing
  • his fav classes are drawing and painting bc he thinks they help him express and manage himself in this ever-changing chaotic world that he lives in
  • and let me tell you, when he’s drawing he ends up in a trance like state and to him it’s a fascinating, intoxicating, and relaxing feeling
  • he gets a lot of inspirations from the different people, events, and basically anything he sees everyday
  • like when he’s walking from his 8am class to the library, he’ll notice that oh? the cherry blossom are blooming?? wow spring already,,,?
  • so when he sits in his usual area in the library, he’ll just have those cherry blossom trees in mind and sketch a fucking landscape
  • and he’ll think about painting it the next day for fun lol
  • but how do you meet him exactly? well you were walking to the library with multiple books in your hand and you weren’t even looking ahead you were on your phone
  • so you didn’t even realize that you were about to run into an urgent and messy haired yoongi
  • and lmao he wasn’t even looking ahead either, at that moment he was wondering like “why did i ever thought it was such a good idea to have an 8am class when i never even wake up. and now see i’m late again!1!!”
  • now books are flying everywhere bc you two didn’t see each other
  • and you’re like omg i’m so sorry i’m such a klutz and he just drops to his knees to help pick up your books in a hurry and he’s like uh no i should apologize i was in such a hurry i wasn’t looking in front of me
  • you get on your knees too to gather up the books and you just say “omg you don’t need to help me these are mine anyway” and he’s like dude its cool i got it
  • while you two are picking up the books, you ended up brushing your hand against his and oh my goodness he pauses for a sec and lifts his head up 
  • and wow this is the first time your eyes meet with his and you just think “hUUhhH this guy is so attractive,,??”
  • but like he thinks the same way towards you……? and he feels his face burning up so he picks up the last book before getting up and “here you go, i’m running a little late and i apologize for all of this” before he literally runs to class and you’re just like “……thanks..?”
  • this may sound cliche but this is how you two meet ok
  • no matter how much yoongi loves his class, he couldn’t help but keep thinking about his little run in to you. how soft your hand felt, how beautiful your eyes were, and just the sound of your voice he couldn’t get out of his mind. but by the end of class, he’ll brush it all off bc “that’s probably the only time i’ll see them”
  • the next day he’s in the library, as usual, but this time after studying for a while he looks around his surroundings and the first thing that his eyes land on is you,,? and you’re only sitting at the table right across from his and he’s just like oh lord
  • without even thinking twice, he opens his notebook and sketches your whole outline while etching your entire image in his head, not forgetting a single detail
  • when he looks up from his notebook though, you were staring at him and he just froze lmao 
  • but then you smile and start heading to his table and he’s like oMG 
  • and you just “oh you’re the guy from yesterday right? it’s nice seeing you not in such a hurry” and he doesn’t know what to say,,?/
  • but then you look down at his notebook and ask “oh are you an art major?”
  • and lol for a sec he forgets that it was you that he was sketching and closes his notebook shut and be like “ oh uH yeah i am haha that wasn’t you in my notebook just now haha
  • and you just get so excited like wow “i don’t take art but i appreciate it so much” and you have a full on conversation with him about these different artists you love and about all the history you know. and you two didn’t even realize how much time passed by until they announce that they’re closing the library soon 
  • and before you two head out in your own rooms, he’s like “i’m yoongi btw” and you tell him your name and he’ll just give you the most adorable smile and you’re just like “uhhhuh he really is attractive”
  • for the next couple of weeks you two would always meet in the library or have coffee together and soon enough you two are exchanging numbers. and he’s like “when did we ever get so close”
  • seokjin and hoseok tease him a lot when it comes to you. “I am so proud of you, you’re finally talking to someone that’s not us” and yoongi’s like sHUTUP YOU TWO WILL YOU
  • “yoongi you need to ask them out already”
  • and yoongi will be like pfftt what are you talking about? i don’t even like them like that. i have so much work to do i don’t have time to date anyone”
  • literally at that moment, he gets a text from you asking where you two are gonna meet today aND he’ll be smiling at his phone the entire time while seokjin and hoseok are like uhuh sure you don’t like them
  • one day you two decided to have an adventure out in the city so here you two were out in the busy streets. and when he looks up at the sky with all the tall skyscrapers he couldn’t help but take his notebook out and draw a little
  • you didn’t mind but there was a page in the notebook that caught your attention and you’re like ???? wait yoongi can you go back to that page aND he’ll know exactly what you’re talking about lol
  • and you’re like pls and all he says is hUhh
  • so when he does turn back to the page of a sketch of you you’ll be like “is that suppose to be ???
  • and all he says is yup, yeah, yes it is and omg i apologize i know its weird
  • and you cut him off like “i knew you were good at art, but yoongi this is really nice !!” and he’s just dumbfounded
  • and at that moment he couldn’t help it, he gave you a light peck on the lips and “gOD i really like you ok”
  • and your face starts burning up like “yoongi,,,,, i like you too” before kissing him back
  • and that’s how you two started dating
  • and honestly he appreciates and loves you so much for loving every part of him you basically just bring out the best in him
  • but you know he cant express his feelings to you vocally, but his actions speak just as much and you’re completely ok with it
  • and he’s constantly always drawing your figure at the most unexpected times. like when you have coffee with him, he’ll take his notebook out. when you cuddle in his dorm, he’ll also take his notebook out
  • and you don’t think it’s weird but you think its just really cute
  • bc you’re in love with him
  • and he’s in love with you

so with this whole genrex revive going on rn i thought itd be fun to make my own up to date ‘Reasons to watch genrex’ list? ??? ? ??? move im gay,

  • first of all DIVERSI-TEA (rex is latino!)
  • his pseudo parents are a doctor and an assassin and theyre blatantly heterosexual for each other but too Serious™ to do anything bout it
  • theres also grandpa piss aka his cranky boss
  • rex has major amnesia and cant remember most of his life leading up to this point so. these people are basically his new family
  • “you wanna know what the best part of amnesia is” “…” “i forgot B)” [IDIOTIC LAUGHTER] 
  • as far as plot theres?? zombies
  • and theyre not normal gay ass zombies either theyre kind of like the. resident evil zombies that mutate from humans/animals except ~fun additional concept~, literally everyone on earth is already infected with the virus (nanites) and can go evo at any time and its just up to fate
  • rex is also an evo ! (most evos are violent, but theres a good handful that are mostly humanoid and retain their control, but they usually have physical mutations and powers)
  • he looks pretty normal (lucky binch) but can make machines from his body (GIANT ROBOT HANDS FOR CRUSHING BADDIES) and return evos to their previous state
  • hes basically the only cure the world has
  • he works for the government and Dies every day (right off the bat theres a rly good arc about how hes mistreated and pressured by his job tho)
  • theres a LOT of parallels to modern politics, and a lot of moral lesson vibes regarding those topics, especially about war
  • “whats the good in winning a war if we cant live with ourselves after” <<<
  • theres a racist anti-evo dude ,,played by John Cena
  • rex kicks his ass apart
  • the characters are written so fuckign well,,,,, everyone has a past and motives and striking personalities and it all meshes so good
  • REALISTIC?? ??  TEENAGERS ?  ?  THAT DEAL WITH STRESS ??
  • so much plotttt
  • and the humor is really good too
  • its made by man of action (aka the creators of ben ten) and kinda has that same ‘Young hero must save the whole world from certain doom but we gotta make it funny for the kids’ feel to it
  • and bc MoA owns both series theres a Crossover episode
  • rex sings the ben ten theme song
  • the soundtrack is rly good and fits the vibe of the show perfectly
  • THE ANIMATION CAN BE SO FUCKEIGN PRETTY
  • theres an entire episode heavily referencing silent hill and it makes me want to cry into my open screaming mouth
  • did i mention theres a pirate one time

anyways heres a link where you can watch the whole series on google docs (no ads, no viruses, and buffering is basically nonexistent) (x

Cole basically coming out as not cis was probably the best part of the Boys By Girls Interview

“I can only speak from my experience, but, in my youth, I had experienced the world around me as an intersection between the expectation of confidence in young men and the simultaneous suppression of a large aspect of that confidence, which is embracing a more feminine nature than men often carry.”

- Cole Sprouse

CS is saying, as I already knew, that he never saw a binary in gender expression and he was forced to suppress his feminity at an early age. 

Now, at 25, CS is having to relearn who CS is, which, we are quickly learning, is not a cis man. 

I can’t WAIT to analyze this whole interview, but I’m waiting for a fully readable copy of the article to make the official post.

I hope this holds you over in the meantime.

Heteronormativity’s Nightmare

Why haven't we seen white diamond? THEORY

Let me start this off by saying I believe someone on tumblr had this theory, too, but I happen to come up with this before I ever saw their post (it was on an SU account on Instagram I believe) but this is my theory on things with some evidence

 Please remember that this is just a theory! None of it is canon, though it would be cool if it was. Now, let’s begin.

 One of the many questions on everyone’s mind right now is “where the hell is White Diamond?” She’s on the authority symbol, but she’s never been mentioned EVER. With that being said, we know little about her, so it’s easy to speculate different ideas about her since we know so little.

 But, I have a theory that brings a little bit of science into the equation. I’ll go over that last, though. First I’d like to bring up a small thing.

 Have you noticed how we haven’t seen a SINGLE gem with the white diamond symbol on? Nope, not one. And seeing as many people theorized how she basically rules Homeworld, wouldn’t it be weird how she has no court specifically to herself?

 Speaking of ruling homeworld, it’s time to bring in my first piece of evidence

 The murals

 In back to the moon, we first catch a glimpse at what the other diamonds might look like. Including White. We also see how many planets they’ve seemingly conquered with Pink being the least and White being the most.

 But! Let’s go back and count the planets. 

 White: 35, counting the planet she’s holding which must seemingly be homeworld

 Yellow: 23

 Blue: 8

 And Pink: 2

 White seemingly has the most, which makes sense if she’s supposedly the supreme ruler of homeworld. But let’s add up the lesser numbers, shall we?

 With Blue, Yellow, and Pink combined, it’s 33.

 But I’m going to go ahead and say those “halos” around the diamond’s heads aren’t really halos. I believe they might be the very FIRST planet that specific diamond conquered. So let’s count all of those, including White’s. 

 So, add plus one to each planet conquered individually and then add them all up again. 

 White: 36

 Pink, Blue, and Yellow: 36

 See where I’m going with this theory? If not, that’s okay. We still have a ways to go. Bringing in the next piece of evidence.

 The trial room.

 As the trial is about to begin, we see the corresponding lights for the diamonds present light up. But. There’s a gap in the middle of Blue and Yellow’s spots that’s tinted what color? A very dark Pink. So we could only assume that’s the spot where pink would be if she were still alive. Which is kind of like this. 

 The diamond authority symbol.

 All the colors are in the right place to represent each diamond in both the symbol and the court room. White at the very top, Blue and Yellow on the sides, and of course, Pink at the very bottom. 

Now I know what you’re thinking. “So? What’s that got to do with anything?” Well, my sassy reader, if you’ll so kindly notice how in the trial room, the White light is much, MUCH bigger than the rest of the spots.

 In fact, you could say that the rest of the spots together equal the white one.

 Referring back to the old Diamond authority symbol, White is at the very top. It has the same concept as the Court room spots if you think about it.

 Calling upon the science part of this thing next. But first, remember how technically a gem’s physical form is made up of light? Me too.

 Next piece of evidence. 

 The light chart. 

 I don’t think this one needs much explaining. 

 If you mix Magenta (pink), Cyan (blue), and Yellow in light, you get WHITE.

 And what is a gem’s physical form made of? LIGHT. PURE LIGHT.

 Also I’ll just bring in something that Garnet said, about fusion. She basically said that she was much more than Ruby and Sapphire combined. She was something, yes, entirely new. And that’s what made her so great. Basically, a fusion is the best parts of the components combined into one.

 So if you take Pink, Yellow, and Blue, combine them, you get literally the PERFECT being.

 Not White Diamond. But THE Diamond.

 This still doesn’t explain why she only has a gem on her forehead when Blue, Yellow, and Pink all have gems elsewhere. But I was thinking that maybe the rules were different for diamonds when it came to fusion.

 And besides, that sounds exactly like something the Crewniverse would do to throw us off. Anyways, I hope you liked this. I had to get this out or else I would burst. Feel free to elaborate on this or whatever, just give me credit for this part of the theory.

 EDIT: YES OH MY GOD PLEASE STOP POINTING OUT THAT THE LITTLE DOTS ON THE MURALS ARE MOONS. I GOT IT.

Skincare isn’t something I’m particularly knowledgable about, but make-up stores on every corner and the vast array of inexpensive, good quality products at my fingertips have gotten me a lot more interested in the subject since coming to Korea.

I’m still very much in the experimental stage, trying out lots of different brands and products, but here is my current routine for inquiring minds.

I’ll start with,
Cleansing: 

1. Innisfree Green Barley Multi Cleansing Tissue
This is the first step of my nightly skincare routine. I use these cleansing wipes to take off the day’s make-up. I prefer to use wipes because they’re just so easy and convenient, and let’s be honest, I’m a bum. I’m using the green barley kind right now, but I’ve tried all of Innisfree’s different versions and they’re all great. Takes off dirt and make-up, quick and easy.

2. Tony Moly Egg Pore Deep Cleansing Foam 
After taking off my make-up, I like to use a foam cleanser to clean any leftover gunk out of my pores. This one is just your basic foam cleanser. Nothing fancy, but it does what it should. The best part is that it’s cheap.

3. Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Mousse Cleanser
Okay, this one is my favorite cleanser I’ve ever tried. It comes out of the can in big, fluffy mousse consistency, and my skin always feels very soft and very clean after using it. I like to wash my face with this in the mornings when I wake up, before moisturizing.

4. Innisfree Apple Juicy Emulsion Lip & Eye Remover
I get most of my make-up off with remover wipes, but if I have particularly stubborn eyeliner/lip tints, or if I run out of wipes and forget to buy more (bum, bum, bum, i’m a lazy bum), I use a small dallop of this. It works well. P.S. it smells delicious.

5. Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Pore Clay Mask 
This is my favorite mask by far, clay or otherwise. It leaves my skin feeling so soft and tight afterwards. I love Innisfree’s entire Jeju Volcanic line, to be honest. My skin is on the dry side though, so I usually only use clay masks once every few weeks.

As you might be able to tell, I have a bit of a bias for Innisfree’s cleansing products. They’re made out of a lot of natural ingredients, and they always leave my skin feeling perfectly clean, never dry.

Moisturizing: 

1. Tony Moly Goat Milk Whitening Toner & Emulsion
I apply toner, then emulsion fresh out of the shower in the morning. I’ll usually eat breakfast while giving them a bit of time to soak in, then do my make-up afterwards. I actually bought these two today, so I haven’t had a chance to try them out yet, but I like whitening products because they’re supposed to help even out your skin tone and fight discoloration, which I have. (hi dark circles)

2. Sheet Masks
I use sheet masks maybe 1-2 times a week for extra moisture. The thing I’ve noticed with masks is that you have to use them very consistently to see any significant effect. I have no brand loyalties when it comes to masks. I always buy them via 10+10 deals and switch kinds when I run out. The ones I’m currently using are from Tony Moly’s Pureness 100 line.

3. Eye Patches
My biggest issue with my skin is my under eye area. I have pretty dark circles/discoloration, so I like to use eye patches whenever I remember or get the urge to. I prefer the consistency of gel patches, but there are paper versions as well. Like face masks, I hop from brand to brand, but I’m currently using Missha’s Clearing Gel Eye Patch.

4. Missha Near Skin Ultimate Firming Eye Cream
As it appears we live in a cruel and imperfect world, I’ve started developing a few fine lines beneath my eyes this year. So lately I’ve been applying this firming eye cream every night before bed. I haven’t been using it long enough to tell if it has any effect or not, but I really hope it does because !!! I’m only 23 !!! I can’t be wrinkly already !!!

5. Nature Republic Snail Solution 70 Cream
I apply a layer of moisture cream to my whole face every night before I go to sleep. I bought this particular cream via a 1+1 deal, so it was a great price. And honestly there’s just something about snail cream that intrigues me?? It’s very moisturizing, and said to be good for other things like wrinkles, acne, redness, etc. as well. The consistency is light and a bit gooier(?) than most creams. That sounds mildly unpleasant, but I dig it.

Overall, I’m not loyal to any one brand when it comes to skincare. I tend to buy all of my products on sale, so whichever store is having a sale that particular day is usually who gets my money. I’ll keep trying new products as mine run out, so let me know if there are any you’re curious about!

So. I may or may not have been drinking when this word waterfall and picture mess came out of my fingers/computer (spoiler alert: I was)… but March 1st is the 20 year anniversary of the release of Young Jedi Knights: Lightsabers. And while the YJK books are for younger audiences and today are basically the best kind of cheese, they were a big part of my Star Wars love growing up. Why? Because FUCKIN’ FEELS, Y’ALL. They focused on two (and introduced one) of my favorite Star Wars characters and my OTP to end all my other effin’ OTPs. They also introduced me to what I wanted to be when I grew up: Tenel Ka Djo.

(Do you know how much it annoyed/enraged me when I was younger and I’d see people on message boards and shit not liking Tenel Ka because of the lack of her whole left arm? ASSBAGS.)

SUPER WARNING AND MANY THANKS: @chaosbria was A+ and giving me constructive tips re: this mess the other night and trying to talk me down from 11 slides and being so damn wordy but as I looked over it repeatedly in the past couple days before posting it I didn’t know what I could take out. I just have so many feelings about Tenel Ka, sober and tipsy and drunk and everywhere in between those. Thank you for looking out for me and my insanity, bro.
