but well... i don't feel very good today

Hello!! Wow, this is the first time I have ever posted a picture of myself to my studyblr. I hope this is ok. I feel so happy to be in the world and I just wanted to share it ✨

maybe i misunderstood. i think it's unfortunate if you feel like you can't listen or appreciate your national anthem because of germany's history. obviously nazism was/is horrible, but there's a lot germany could and should be proud of today. many countries, mine included, celebrate what our country stands for through the anthem. i don't think germany stands for nazism anymore, nor should the anthem. so i think it's sad/unfortunate if you can't listen to yours w/o fear of nazi accusations.

Well, I am indeed very happy about a lot of things that are good in Germany. 
And I’m very happy to have the random privilege of being born in this country. 
We do sing our anthem without hesitation at let’s say, sports events. Which is good. The world cup makes you want to feel like the whole country is on that field y’know all for good fun. 

But why would I need to listen or sing the anthem in my freetime? Why would I proudly yell it out? 
I can’t be proud of something I haven’t achieved. I did nothing for this country so far. 
Being born here and seeing a lot of good things makes me happy, yes. I’m happy to be German. I loved growing up here. I love our food, our jokes, our language, our nature etc. I like Germany. 
But why do I need an anthem for that? Why do I need to celebrate that with an anthem? 
People who do that, at least here, and feel like they should go all out about how it’s the greatest country in the world while waving flags in your face, you’ll easily find on the rather right side of the political spectrum y’know.

I very well can listen to it. At times at which it’s needed/good (as mentioned before), at times at which it makes sense to get the whole nation/union feeling. 
I just don’t understand heavy patriotism. I think it’s harmful, because people tend to develop the feeling of “my country is better than everyone else’s” and that just creates stupid hate?? 

Yes, it’s somewhat shitty to have to pay more attention to certain things than some other countries. History still weighs heavy on us. 
But it’s not sad. Being aware of our history and how the whole “OUR GREAT NATION” blah can do dangerous things while still being able to be happy about living in a good, safe country isn’t sad. 

This is a very chaotic response but I hope you understand what I mean. 
Yes, I’m happy to be born in Germany and I know the anthem. I might even hum along when some German wins an Olympic medal. And yes, I’m happy people before us managed to give us a democracy, I’m happy we have and had a lot of intelligent people who were born here etc. 
But I won’t be proud of something that’s a random privilege.

Newt I thought I did really well in a job interview but I got the rejection today and I don't know how to deal with it. It's the fifth rejection I've gotten in a week and I don't know what to do

Hello.  I’m so sorry about the rejection.  That can be a very disheartening experience, can’t it?  Sometimes it can feel like no matter how hard you try, it just isn’t good enough.  But in this case, I don’t believe that’s true at all.

Rejections are never easy to swallow and if you let them, they can make you feel very helpless, and very tired.  I’d ask you to consider this from a different angle, if you’ll allow it.

Firstly, it can be very difficult when searching for a job to ever be accepted the first time, or the second or even the tenth.  That doesn’t mean the right job for you isn’t out there.  You’ve also said you’ve been rejected five times- well then, that means you’ve tried five times haven’t you, and I’m very proud of you for that.

If you can, take a breath and allow yourself a moment of disappointment if you need it.  Then, take the next moment to by proud of yourself too, because just trying- putting in the effort to start somewhere is often the most difficult part.  You’re job is out there, and you will find it.  Have a bit of faith in yourself, because I certainly do.  Everything will be alright, I promise.

What VIXX will do if they got their 1st place?
  • Shindong: How's your abs these days?
  • Leo: Nowadays I'm doing more cardio exercises..
  • Shindong: Oh, you're focusing on getting slimmer than on making muscles. Okay everyone, next time on stage Leo will reveal his belly button! Oh! If it's like this, have you got your 1st place already?
  • VIXX: (cheering loudly)
  • N: No we haven't.
  • Shindong: Okay, then Leo will do it once VIXX win their 1st place!
  • Leo: If that's the case.. If we win 1st place, then we all will do it.
  • Shindong: A collective belly button revelation!
  • VIXX: (booing)
  • Shindong: Then what about doing a rock paper scissor game to pick only one person doing it? The loser will do it. It can be Leo.
  • Leo: Belly button?
  • Shindong: Yes! After you won, on the encore stage, lift your shirt up and show your belly button.
  • N: Noooo..
  • Shindong: If not then open your upper five buttons.
  • Ravi: Five buttons?!
  • Shindong: Is that okay?
  • Leo: It's not........
  • Shindong: Choose one then, upper five or lower two.
  • Ken: I think upper five is fine, since you have abs..
  • N: How about Ken (doing it)?
  • Ken: No no no no!
  • Ravi: (laughed)
  • Shindong: So how should we do it? Choose one, upper five or lower two. Leo can decide this, since this talk came up because of him.
  • Leo: Well.. we got our leader here..
  • N: Why do you hand over this to me??
  • Shindong: Okay, choose! Upper buttons or lower buttons. 1, 2, 3!
  • N: Wait wait wait. If we did win 1st place, we're probably be so emotional so it'll be weird to just lift up our shirt and doing an exposure like that.
  • Shindong: Ah. You're right. Then how about you do it when your manager come?
  • VIXX: (clapping)
  • N: Oh wait. When our manager come, WE will be the one doing it?
  • Shindong: Of course! It'll be weird if your manager is the one who does it!! It's really weird, that will be some kind of broadcast incident!
  • VIXX: (laughing hysterically)
  • Shindong: Hmmmm.. Since this is a joke.. How about you do it if you get your second 1st place?
  • N: Wait, so I got to decide this? What to do and who will do it? Since I'm the leader?
  • Shindong: Yes, you decide which one to do, upper five or lower two.
  • N: If that's the case.. Ravi and Hongbin should open their three upper buttons.
  • Shindong: Three? That's too easy!
  • N: Then Hongbin and ravi open their five upper buttons.
  • Shindong: Only them?
  • N: Since they got the best body (out of the six of us).
  • Shindong: This came up first because of Leo, so what should Leo do?
  • N: Leo? Hmmm.. (From now on) he should smile widely. Like he's about to break into laughter.
  • Shindong: That's it?
  • Leo: Can I not..
  • Shindong: Then choose one, revealing your belly button or that.
  • Ravi: Reveal his belly button? (laughed)
  • Leo: (contemplating)
  • Shindong: So which one would you choose?
  • Leo: I'll work hard.
  • Ravi: What will you work hard on?? (laughed)
  • Shindong: You will work hard on revealing your belly button?
  • Leo: No.....
  • Shindong: Then how about doing something normal that you usually. How about rolling up your pants at ALL TIME?
  • Leo: Okay..
  • Ravi: He looks very happy about it!
  • Shindong: Whatever you do, you have to roll it up at least 1/7 or 1/6 of it. Looking at recent weather, it's okay right?
  • Leo: (nodding)
  • Shindong: But these two (Hongbin and Ravi) will still reveal their upper bodies.
  • Ravi and Hongbin: (laughed)
  • Shindong: What about the others? What will you do?
  • Hyuk: I will reveal my barefoot.
  • Shindong: That's pretty good. But one person should still reveal their belly button!
  • Ken: (shaking his head) What should I do?
  • Shindong: Just reveal the whole of your body then.
  • Ken: No no no..
  • Shindong: Then how about, don't reveal inside of it, but just open the zip of your pants? The feel would be very sexy! Well anyway, these other two (N and Ken) would reveal what would they do later if they win their second 1st place!

I heard you give good advice, and I really need it. Long story short, I met this boy. But this boy is clueless and struggles to put in the effort in our "relationship." He drives me insane, but I really like him. And I'm not one to believe in "love at first sight or marriage or anything about love honestly, but when I'm with him I get this feeling that this is the person I'm going to spend the rest of my life with but we fight and I'm just afraid & I don't know if I should stay or just walk away

(( I heard you give good advice; that makes me sound like the village BABA (granny) who gives out advice to the youngsters of today (*゚▽゚)ノ. 

Very well, sit down my child have some tea, grab a piece of cake and let us talk.( ˘ ³˘)♥ Ok~ firstly I have to tell you this - only you two know what exactly is going on, only you two know the details, the emotions, the good and the bad. I can only give you a small advice, but my words and words from any other other person should not lead you to your decision - that is something you have to do on your own, by yourself and then you have to be responsible for that. Ok?(๑•́ ₃ •̀๑) 

 So..my first question would be - have you talked and I mean TALKED not complained, not yelled, not just run by…but really talked about the problems, about what bothers you, about your worries and such? You know most of the time people don’t even know that something is wrong if someone doesn’t tell them, he can’t read your mind and you can’t read his. 

Conversation - is the foundation of any solid and good relationship. Then are your fights small quarrels or big fights, are you both able to apologize and forgive? You see, if you spoke to him, truly spoke to him and tried so many times…and he still doesn’t understand… Well it lies in you. Can you accept him that way? Because people change on their own accord it is not your duty to change them. And forcing someone to change is an absolute no-no! But talking about problems and your wishes and desires is something entirely else. But 

the main question you have to ask yourself; am I happy? Is he happy? Are WE happy? Hope this helped you a little bit. If you both love each other and are happy + can have a good conversation - there should be no problems. But it is in your (his and your) handsฅ(♡ơ ₃ơ)ฅ ))

I felt like crying in the middle of math class today,
but I don’t know why. Here’s what I do know:
You need to talk about your feelings.
I know that I need to get these feelings out,
but I don’t feel like talking to anyone.

It started with a friend ignoring me for weeks.
My braces got put on, four teeth got extracted,
my braces got tightened. My orthodontist looks
like my creepy uncle and he is too aggressive with his
hands and they are cold. My landlord tells me that
I am ladylike because I keep my mouth shut
the whole car ride to school and the car ride back.
What I know is that he talks far too loud for someone
who sits right next to him. My skin breaks out and
I irritate it more by trying a different possible remedy every day.
I gain weight. My therapist agrees that she has noticed as well.
I know that no one in my math class talks to me.
I know that people only know my name because I brought
in cookies, and even then most of them have forgotten.
I know that I got anon message saying, “Your love does
seem a bit commonplace unfortunately.”
I do not feel pretty this month, an anon agrees and adds
that my poems were “attention seeking”, that I have a “weak
mind” and that I wouldn’t make it in the real world if
I can’t even handle school. Add on a couple of nightmares and sleepless nights. I have not seen any friends since Valentine’s Day.
My other friend is not talking to me as well,
but I’m not even sure why.
I remember today that February only has 28 days.
March is coming which means I have even more to do.

Here’s what I know:
You put something off and it builds up.
Little things every day,
they pile on top of each other
like a mountain until it starts
to bend and fall over.

You need to let it out.

What We Don't Know...

Hello, beautiful people on tumblr! Since I came down with the flu last week I’ve been feeling pretty drowsy and my head can’t do the thinking thing very well. So I thought this is a good time to put a new spin on our theories. Today, I want to talk about what we don’t know.

I have noticed there is a weird dynamic happening all over the internet when it comes to open questions in Doctor Who. They are either called plot holes, or they are completely ignored. There is no in-between. People just jump to conclusions without realising there ever even was a question. Many times, my theories are answered with “that story is over”, or “that’s a plot hole”. And then people get mad at Moffat, because things don’t add up.

I wonder - how do you guys know when a story arc is over? Did I miss a memo?  It is a bit like people denying the idea of gravity but then getting mad at the Australians for not falling off the planet. I don’t know why this happens.

Anyway, enough with the rant - today, let’s take a step back. Here is my collection of open questions:

  1. Who landed in Amy’s garden?

    Yes, we learn in The Big Bang that all people who ever hated the Doctor formed an alliance in order to stop him - but we never learn who actually landed in Amy’s garden. Is this really just an unnecessary detail or will we learn more about this symbol that they left on the grass?

  2. Why was the TARDIS blown up at that particular date?

    Tasha Lem told us who blew up the TARDIS and why. I personally don’t believe for a second that this is all there is to it. But even if we were to believe that that story arc was completely over, there is one thing we still don’t know: Why was the TARDIS blown up the day of Amy and Rory’s wedding? Why did the Silence choose that particular time in point? This day, the day (or rather the night) of the wedding - it is the day that River Song “begins”. Is it really a coincidence that the Silence choose that particular day to blow up the TARDIS? Considering that they were basically rewriting their very own psychopath?

  3. What the f*** happened to River Song?

    This is where the shaking-head-in-bewilderment starts. Moffat haters and lovers alike seem to be completely fine with the fact that River Song is gone. She had not one but two heartbreaking goodbyes. There is beautiful meta all over the Internet on why the Doctor never mentions her name and why he starts crying at the mention of Trenzalore. I believe it all. But still - what the f*** actually happened? One minute, we have “whenever and wherever you like”, the next minute the Doctor is sulking on a cloud and acting like he never even had a wife. Is no one going to ask what happened?!? How can you say that River’s arc is over, when this is still left unexplained?

    Some of you will now point me towards that Moffat interview where he said he was happy with their goodbye. This is where I remind you that he also said Moriarty could not possibly return to Sherlock. Or that Paul McGann wouldn’t be even remotely involved in the anniversary special. Rule one: the Moff lies.

  4. What’s with the face?

    Well, I guess this is one of the few open questions that is actually accepted as such. What was an older version of the fourth Doctor doing in that museum? Is he related to the multiple Capaldis we have in the whoniverse? Who nose?

Well, that is all I can think of for now. As you can see, I only included MoffatWho in this, for the sole reason that I don’t know enough ClassicWho to know open questions. RTD’s era didn’t leave too many things open. Questions that do come to mind are: What happened to Susan in the time war? How did Captain Jack become the Face Of Boe?

I’m sure you have some questions of your own. Feel free to message me and I will update this post as I see fit.

I hope this inspires some new theories. Let me know what you guys think (but know that if you use the words “plot hole”, I will automatically put you on ignore). What are your open questions? Do you have any ideas as to how the above questions could be explained?

EDIT - I forgot an important one:

  1. How does River know the Doctor’s name? (And **how** can you say River’s story is over?)
