do-it-know-remember-it-later

Whenever I’m sad I remember that my favorite anime and favorite webcomic (tied with Homestuck) both have a super long, incredibly complex and amazing game of dodgeball that’s way more dramatic than it has any right to be, and they both happen to be my favorite parts of those stories.

And yes, I’m talking about HxH and Paranatural.

Also to make this post relevant tomorrow’s episode will be liveblogged a bit later, around 4 or 5 pm ARS. I’m not sure if I can do one Friday, right now it seems unlikely but you never know.

The Fellowship of the Ring (2001) An Unexpected Journey (2012)

Alya: Adrien, I need you to act as translator for Marinette!

Adrien: I’ll be right there! *Hangs up without asking for address.*

Alya: *Later* Adrien, how did you know where Marinette lived?

Adrien: …..

Adrien: …. *Remembers appearing at her front door as Chat Noir*

Adrien: *Makes up excuses involving knowing the bakery.*

Marinette: She wants my dolls!

Chat Noir: *Okay, don’t fuck it up this time, Chat.*

Chat Noir: Right, where do you live?

Marinette: *Gives address.*

Chat Noir: Right, thanks! *Runs off*

Chat Noir: ….

Chat Noir: *Realizes Marinette knows he’s been there several times as Chat Noir and Adrien.*

Chat Noir: fuCK

What if Harry and Louis don’t even know what happened in Wellington? What if they got so drunk that night that they couldn’t even remember what they did? And then later that day they saw that low quality video of them and that’s all they remembered? What if they know just as much as we do?

The Signs And Their Thoughts During Testing

Aries - What if I payed someone to do this for me?

Taurus - *fell asleep*

Gemini - *skipped school*

Cancer - Come on, I studied this sooo much, what can’t I remember anything?

Leo - You know, I’m just going to wing this.  I mean, it’s worked every other time.

Virgo - Oh my gosh, this is so easy.

Libra - Hey, teacher?  What does this mean?

Scorpio - I’m never going to need to know this later in life, this is so stupid.

Sagittarius - Well, here goes my grade.

Capricorn - Shit.  Yeah, I should of studied.  Oops.

Aquarius - What would happen if I just left.  And never came back.

Pisces - *staring blankly at the test*

When I was pregnant and at risk of dying from complications due to preeclampsia and HELLP syndrome, I remember asking our doctors if there was anything we could do to delay delivery of my daughter and give her more time to develop - even if it meant putting myself in more danger. Perhaps it was selfless, but I also wonder if I just needed the doctors to know that I understood the social contract around motherhood, and that wanting to be “a good mother” was more important to me than my own health and life.

Years later, when I had an abortion rather than put my life at risk again, I wrote that it was, in part, because I had an existing child that needed me. That’s true – but the other piece of it is that I needed to live, too. Not because I was a mother or wife, but because I am a person and I am not done yet.

Why is bearing children seen as more important than surviving pregnancy?, my latest at the Guardian US. 

Why must the best mothers be dead mothers?

Ahahaha I just remembered. I was told like… when was it? Mid year last year? August I think, but the person who told me knew since way earlier (I wanna say April but I can’t remember, it was in the screenshots they showed me), that a delivery guy delievered something to Louis’ house (not his public house, that’s checked) and that Harry OPENED THE FUCKING DOOR.

The person asked ‘where was the house?’ and the delivery guy was like ‘idk the actual address, near this and this street’.

Cue to two months later, an article in a website that has NOTHING to do with the fandom whatsoever says ‘this area of London is blah blah blah, even members of One Direction live here’ hahahaha wanna know where that area was???? Yeah… it was the same. Go figure.

PS: none of the boys’ public houses is in that area AT ALL. And it said MEMBERSSSS not member.

You know all that sympathy that you feel for an abused child who suffers without a good mom or dad to love and care for them? Well, they don’t stay children forever. No one magically becomes an adult the day they turn eighteen. Some people grow up sooner, many grow up later. Some never really do. But just remember that some people in this world are older versions of those same kids we cry for.

You know what I want for the next chapter?

I want Sakura to go to where Naruto and Sasuke are and tell them: “You know what’s the difference between Indra and Ashura and you guys? They didn’t have me.”

And then kick the shit out of the two and proceed to drag them back to konoha.

Remember, remember, the Fifth of November, the Gunpowder Treason and Plot. I know of no reason why the Gunpowder Treason should ever be forgot… But what of the man? I know his name was Guy Fawkes and I know, in 1605, he attempted to blow up the Houses of Parliament. But who was he really? What was he like? We are told to remember the idea, not the man, because a man can fail. He can be caught, he can be killed and forgotten, but 400 years later, an idea can still change the world. I’ve witnessed first hand the power of ideas, I’ve seen people kill in the name of them, and die defending them… but you cannot kiss an idea, cannot touch it, or hold it… ideas do not bleed, they do not feel pain, they do not love… And it is not an idea that I miss, it is a man… A man that made me remember the Fifth of November. A man that I will never forget.

Constantly hold her hand, it lets her know you like being around her
Play with her hair at night, it’s the only way she’ll be able to fall asleep
Grab her face and kiss her when she’s mad, that will drive her insane and it’ll make her forget why she was ever mad
Let her win arguments sometimes, even if you’re right
Remember how she likes her coffee, she’ll notice
If she asks for affection give it to her, she loves feeling loved
If she asks you to come when she needs you do it, it lets her know that you’ll actually be there for her
Call or text her constantly, so she knows that you’re not getting bored with her
Don’t push her, if she doesn’t want to tell you then she’ll eventually tell you later
Love her with every single fiber in your fucking body and please don’t ever hurt her
If you can’t do any of these things leave because she deserves the god damn world.

My client has a legacy inventory software which absolutely will not work with anything past Windows XP and there’s no upgrade in their budget.

Me: You can continue to use this system now that XP reached end of life, but you ABSOLUTELY CANNOT use the internet. This system is only for inventory control, price tags, etc.

Client: Ok, what do I use for internet?

Me: We will have to either build another system or you will have to buy what you want retail.

Later…

Client: The store computer crashed

Me: Ok, what happened?

Client: I don’t know. I was shopping for baseball tickets and the whole thing quit working properly.

Me: Do you remember when I said you couldn’t use that system on the internet?

Client: Yeah but….

To any of my followers taking ap tests tomorrow and for the next 2 weeks, I wish you all good luck and remember to study as much as you can handle without overwhelming yourself. Get a good night’s rest, eat a good breakfast, don’t forget your pens and pencils, and overall keep calm during the test, take deep breaths, if you don’t know the answer to a question just skip it and go back to it, and remember to not be so harsh on yourself if you don’t do as well as you anticipated. Think of it as a learning experience, and try better next year.

Despite fear.
Despite fitting in.
Despite judgment.
Despite insecurities.
Despite others standards.
Despite a lack of resources.
Despite anything or anyone.

I will never give up on MYSELF!

Do you need a pick me up today, feeling low, feeling insecure?
Please know that we have all felt this way at one point or another, and that you might feel that way again later in life. What is important to remember is that it is OKAY to not be okay, it is alright to have emotions and feelings, even when they don’t make sense. Always be true to yourself, change when you need to, learn & grow…

BUT NEVER GIVE UP ON YOURSELF! YOU ARE VALID.
YOU ARE WORTHY OF LOVE!

to all the lovely writers out there,

please continue writing. i know that having feedbacks help but please know that we all need more people like you. it doesn’t matter if you’ve only got a reader, or if you have none at all but never stop writing.

you may start badly now, but sooner or later, i know you’ll improve.

do not write for others, write for yourself. that’s the most important thing that you need to be reminded of. write whatever you want, whatever you like. write a story that you’ve always wanted to read. who the hell cares if you write about a flying dolphin with four arms or a girl who tries to get out of a wolf’s stomach- it’s your story.

remember: write for yourself. :]
