clear views

Suicide

Is such a painful subject to have ‘debates’ and ‘arguments’ about, it’s such a sensitive subject you need to be very clear on your views and ideas on why people commit this terrible act, and why they make this tragic decision.

I have personally been affected by two suicides, by two close friends, one of who I found hanging in her kitchen.

I don’t have answers as to why? I can only offer my ideas on how to prevent it.

It can be prevented by talking about it more, in a clear humane way. We can make other people aware of the pitfalls and life style choices that may contribute to those feelings of hopelessness. (drugs, relationships), educate the children at a young age to seek help whenever they have ‘strange’ thoughts or feelings. Educate the parents,  teachers to spot young people with mental issues earlier, the sooner the better, the younger they gain all the knowledge, the better chance of growing up with a stronger mindset.

So many things WE as adults can do, right now, starting today.

one thing I noticed about star vs the forces of evil season 3 the battle for mewni ep.7 “toffee”, is that at the end of the episode Eclipsa’s hands are no longer purple and gnarly looking.

Before:

After:

it’s hard to see cuz we don’t get a clear view of her hands, but now that Moon’s hands are all purple and sore, Eclispa’s are not. I dunno what this means but it is something I noticed.

The stars lighted up the night sky, giving a clear view of the constellations. Newt laid his head on a small log as the rest of the runners were gathered together in a bond fire. Thomas companies Newt. “Hey the boys and (Y/N) are all wondering about you. What’s up?” He asked worried. Newt sighed. “Do you think I have a chance?” Newt asked with his thick accent, glancing over atThomas then focusing back towards the sky. “We’ll make it out of here, don’t –”
“No you shuck.” Newt chuckled, sitting up. Thomas looked at him confused.
“Yeah of course that too, but I meant (Y/N) and I. Do you think I’d have a chance after all of this..” Thomas knew there was something between the both of you but he also knew neither of you wanted to admit it.

“Newt, she seems like she might have feelings for you. But you will never know if you don’t run for it.” Thomas suggested trying to cast a pun, with a small smile.
“Ha.Ha. very witty mate.” Newt said sarcastically patting Thomas shoulder. “Worth a try.” Thomas shrugged but cleared the way so Newt has a clear view of you. “I’m going for it, wish me luck.” Newt stated making his way towards you.
“Uh (Y/N) can I talk to you for a couple of seconds.” He mentioned rubbing the back of his neck with his hand nervously.


The runners gave glances to each other and in a few seconds they were all ooh-ing and whistling making Newts cheeks flush red. “Oh shuck off.” He bantered. Couple of laughs were exchanged.
“So what happened? What was it that you wanted to talk about?” You asked curiously once you and Newt were out of sight from everyone else.

“Ever since you entered the maze, I couldn’t help and notice how beautiful you are. I was pondering over this thought of you and I being together after this whole mess.” Newt said sincerely. You could tell he was nervous because he was picking at he’s leaf he had in his hand. “What do you think?” He asked.

“NEWT! Of course.” You hugged him with excitement.

On one hand, I really enjoy all the internet explorer memes about her because she’s precious and hilarious.


On the other hand, I feel like y’alls is really missing out on the potential here. 

Para doesn’t have future vision, she has hindsight, and from the looks of it, it takes an active effort for her to try to stay even a minute behind the present.

Garnet herself has stated that the difficulty with future vision is that there are an endless number of ways that the fates can go, and it’s a matter of probabilities to try to determine which one it’ll be. 

It’s not really the same with the past. The past has happened, events are set (especially given that this show’s version of ‘time travel’ is actually just jumping and/or creating timeline branches rather than traveling within the same stream). 

So what am I getting at?

Para may be more powerful than we’re giving credit for. With a clear view of the past, unconflicted by the branching probabilities of the future, how far back do you think she could see if she wasn’t trying so hard to stay in the present?

Who’s to say that Para isn’t exactly what the team needs? Especially with all the questions right now, where everybody is questioning what really happened 6000 years ago?

Inexorable (2)

Pairing: Jeon Jungkook x Reader

Genre: Angst, (eventual) smut, Mafia au!

Notes: Welp, since so many of you asked for it, here is a part two!! There are two other stories which need a continuation as well, so I might keep requests closed for a while.. Sorry about that. I hope you don’t mind. Feel free to ask me questions, though! Ya’ll are so nice to me! 2,053 Words

Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 (FINAL)

The ride to the vacation home wasn’t as bad as you thought it would be. Your husband actually gave you the space you needed. There were brief glares exchanged between the two of you, a whole lot of drinking, and forced slumber – it was a 3 hour ride, after all. 

When the both of you had finally reached, the luggage was taken out by the bodyguards who had come along, and brought to your huge master bedroom. It was twice the size of your father’s office – if not, bigger – the bed was king-sized, and adorned with silk sheets. The walk-in wardrobe was already stacked with clothes for both sexes, making you wonder why you had even brought luggage in the first place.

“Too small, honestly,” Jungkook commented, plopping down on the couch by the fireplace. “My room is bigger than this.”

There he was, ruining the moment again. It was a good thing you were too exhausted to fight with him; but that didn’t mask over the fact that you still wanted to knock him out.

“Brat..”

YOU HAVEN’T LIVED UNTIL YOU’VE PLAYED A 12 PERSON LUCIO MATCH IM JUST SAYING

anonymous asked:

I was wondering what your opinion on the whole gal gadot / Wonder Woman debate is? you totally don't have to answer I was just curious since you're Israeli, and I'm ignorant when it comes to that topic tbh, so I don't know which side to believe

it’s complicated.
there are two main issues i’m aware of, and i’m gonna try to reply to both of them:

1. gal having served in the idf - this is the one that’s the easiest to reply to. military service is mandatory in israel (there are very few exceptions - for instance, arab israelis don’t have to serve, and people with medical/mental disabilities don’t either - which is why i didn’t/don’t serve but do national service instead - but many people volunteer to serve anyway). the overwhelming majority of people who serve in the army don’t do anything that involves shooting at people. most of it is boring administrative work (israeli movie zero motivation illustrates that very accurately). gal was never involved in any fighting, she served because that’s the law here.

2. gal being proud and supportive of idf - that’s the one that’s the most controversial. and the hardest to explain.
since military service is mandatory by law here, over the years it became a huge HUGE social taboo thing to speak against idf - because everyone’s served there, everyone’s family members and friends did, there’s this whole “these soldiers are our collective children” mentality going on in the israeli society. that’s why issues like the elor azaria incident cause such a HUGE, massive, seriously unexplainable rift/aggressive and passionate discussion in the israeli society - with the words “elor is everyone’s kid” being thrown around often. 
and outsiders have a really hard time understanding this because most countries don’t have mandatory service. i imagine when most of you imagine soldiers you imagine some egotistical jocks hell bent on showing the world how manly they are, or some shit. in israel, the word “soldier” is associated with 18 year old boys and girls, fresh out of high school, thrown into a never ending war because it’s the civil duty to do so.
and that mentality is as deeply ingrained in gal as it is in most israelis. when she said she supports idf, i’m nearly 100% certain that what she had in mind is those 18 year olds who are everyone’s children. not some adrenaline junkies who want to shoot up people, which is again is what i imagine soldiers are perceived as in other countries. 

as for my personal viewpoint? idf does shitty things. idf killed many, many innocent civilians. still does. i’m on the “elor azaria is a murderer” side of that specific issue. my opinions are highly unpopular in the current social climate in israel, but they are what they are and i stand by them.
BUT.
my highschool friends all went to the military (most still haven’t finished their service). my brother is in the military still, he’s doing an extended program which involves academic studies - he basically does HR/social work. none of them have ever killed anyone. they’re just doing their civil duty, because they have to by law.
ALSO.
the internet - and specifically, the social justice part of it - is super, super, SUPER biased against israel. because palestinians have harnessed one power they have and are using it to max effect - social media. and god knows israel’s dumb military leaders have given them TONS of ammunition against israel in the form of unnecessary civil killings and destruction. there’s nothing more powerful than that to turn the international opinion against israel. and that indeed happened. and honestly? quite rightfully so. our leadership is crap, talk of peace have felt hollow for years, they’re trying to maintain a status quo that is only dragging all of us further down into conflict hell. and one of the people who get hurt the most from that are idf soldiers who, by law, have to follow those stupid political decisions and pay the price.
and thus “outsiders” attack israeli soldiers and citizens instead of our catastrophic military and political “leadership”. and thus people turn their eyes away from the crimes the palestinians do in this conflict, since they’re the underdogs.

so i’m gonna try to tl;dr that
gal doesn’t actively or knowingly support the wrongdoings that the palestinians are going through by expressing her support of idf. she just supports israeli youth, who’s going through some hard shit. who have to spend days and nights away from home, and whose families miss and worry sick about. that’s 99% of what idf means to israeli people. that’s the mental conditioning in the israeli society. and it’s hard to explain to outsiders.

I’m playing as a monk, and the dm asked what my characters outfit looked like. I told him its a loose fitting top and a just under knee-length skirt (my character is male).

A while later, we came across a boxing ring. Being a monk, I enthusiastically entered myself in the competition. My opponent was a human barbarian.

Barbarian: I don’t think some wuss in a skirt could beat me.

Me ooc: I’m going to kick him in the face, making sure he gets a clear view up my skirt.

I won the fight by a long shot.

Tess at the Garage Show

My friend (who is not publicly on Tumblr) was at the show yesterday and told me what she saw at Harry’s gig. She wanted me to pass this along.
