Honestly? I got into it because I wanted to /try/ acting. I had never really done much before, mostly due to the environment i grew up in being hostile to it. I wanted to play around and learn to do it, and I was SO bad at first, but I see improvement with everything I work on. I decided to pursue it when I realized that I actually DID have potential and was encouraged by some of my more successful friends.
I want to inspire people, I want to move people with my performances. Whether it’s to laughter or to tears, I want people to hear my voice and take something from it.
@dracohasmycat tagged me in this thingey, and I’ve gotta say, it’s super hard for me to think about some cool fun facts about myself so this actually took me a while, but here it is:
I’m in college to learn how to teach middle school and high school English (I’m leaning towards middle school), which is funny because I was kicked out of Honors English because I’m lazy when it comes to homework.
I want to learn Bangla.
I love things that make me cry (sad or happy, I appreciate anything that moves me).
I want a Eurasier puppy.
I HATE pasta of all kinds but I’m an adventurous eater when it comes to almost anything else.
I love playing video games.
I am terrifyingly jealous of people who are well-traveled, and/or know more than one language. Especially if they’re my age or younger because I don’t have the money/time required to achieve these things, they’re high on my list, and I am so fucking petty about other people my age having these things when I can’t (I know it sounds awful, but it’s true –I’m salty af guys, I’m sorry).
I have an obsession with names and their meanings and origins.
The tips of my fingers go numb and turn white when it’s colder than 50 degrees (F) and it doesn’t have to be below freezing, like wtf?
I was raised in a town that has “Drive Your Tractor to School Day” and resides in a county that has more cows than humans (no joke) but quite a few people have assumed I am from NYC when they first met me.
Just want to remind everyone that EA does not deserve praise for this. For one, this is not listening to consumers, it’s highly likely they’re getting pressure from Disney and other places.
Also, they are NOT removing microtransactions. They’re turning them off, temporarily. If I had to guess, they’ll put them back in once the shitstorm dies down. Maybe, BIG MAYBE, they’ll rework the system to make it less scummy.
EA still doesn’t deserve your money. They decided to not be scumbags right now, but will be scumbags at some later time.
Addendum: If you feel the need to play devil’s advocate for a massive corporation or feel like people are entitled babies because they want a product that doesn’t blatantly exploit people, feel free to just block me.
I just realized something today. You know how we always rant about
the (old, too old) age of the actors playing Harry Potter’s parents in the movies?
Snape, Sirius Black and Remus Lupin were (more or less) 31 years old
when Harry started to attend Hogwarts.
in the movies, they were interpreted by a 55 year old (Alan
Rickman), a 43 year old (Gary Oldman) and a 38 year old (David
Thewlis) respectively. (These are the ages they were when
the first movie was released.)
you know Ben Barnes, who is often fancasted as teenage
Sirius Black? He is 35 years old, only a year younger than Sirius
was when he died. So Ben Barnes is in fact a good fancast for
old Sirius! And Andrew Garfield, who is often fancasted
as teenage Remus? 33. Yep. You get my point here.
So a friend talked with me about a Music Camp he was in, and I immediately thought of Camp Camp.
I don`t know why, but I`d like to think that Max is a child that would like playing the violin? But his parents had to high standards for him to reach, so his self-estem kinda went down the drain, even though he`s actually really good and enjoys playing!
you know, I just realized what bothers me so much about even just the thought of jon kneeling, of giving the north to dany
it’s not the bad writing or the forced romance; it’s not even that sansa would be hated and ridiculed for such a decision, even though she would be
it’s that sansa went through everything for the dream of home - of the north. She was abused and tormented and tortured, physically and emotionally, and all she wanted was to go home
she was told over and over and over that her sole purpose, from the moment her father died, was to be the way another gained entry into the north
that she was just a tool to be used, for someone else to control her home
and here’s jon, giving it to someone. Giving away her home, her freedom, her safety
everything she’s worked for, every soldier she’s welcomed into her home for him; every northern lord she’s convinced to follow jon in his absence; every fire she’s put out, literally and figuratively; every time she’s refused to crown, because it belongs to jon
and he just gives it away
more than that, Robb died trying to free the north from the south; catelyn died trying to free the north from the south. Their blood runs through the country; their sacrifice made it possible for the north to be it’s own, independent kingdom
