eligibility

The popup is normal!

Hey peeps!

You might have noticed a popup on the site today, encouraging you to register to vote on the National Voter Registration Day website. Just wanted to let you know that this is something I consented to – you definitely SHOULD vote, and in order to do that, you definitely should register. :]

The popup will only be around today, and then it’s donezo. In the meantime, though, if you are eligible to vote in the US, you can register right here.

Have a great day, friends.

New Brunswick to offer free second-language training to unemployed
Employment insurance recipients will be eligible to continue receiving those benefits while taking second-language training.
By Staff

The New Brunswick government will spend up to $1 million to provide free second-language training for unemployed adults.

Premier Brian Gallant says many people realize the economic benefits that bilingualism creates, but need help to become more fluent in their second language so they can compete for bilingual jobs.

Second-language training is offered at community colleges across the province.

Gallant says they will strive to add seats to match demand.

Second-language training will be provided at no cost to unemployed New Brunswickers beginning in January.

Employment insurance recipients will be eligible to continue receiving those benefits while taking second-language training.

Important Reminder:

This is the only political post I’ll make on this blog, because that’s not what this space is for. But if you are a US citizen who is over 18 and otherwise eligible, please register to vote. in my state, Pennsylvania, the last day to register is October 11th. Know when your deadline is and make sure you are registered. 

I won’t presume to tell you who to vote for, but voting is important. Go do it.

admin it's my first time buying an album off of the official websites for it to count towards charts but i don't k ow where to order off of…kpoptown kpopmart or yesasia?? which one is more reliable and won't lose the package like the many horror stories i've heard of? should i preorder the album now or when they in the 2nd week or promos and are officially competing for music show wins??

there’s been issues with all, like there has been with any merchandising site, but they’re all good resources. so, i’d say to base it more off of how much the price of the album and it’s shipping are on each respective site. it’s not really a decision anyone can make but yourself! as for sales: if you want your copy to count toward potential music show wins it’d be best to either purchase it now or before october 9th kst. they will be eligible to win on october 10th with both presales and official sales made between october 5th - 9th. of course, sales after that time will count as well but those first week sales are going to be vital because it’ll be their strongest timeframe for winning.

"You're wasting your vote voting for a third party" I kinda think you're wasting your vote voting for Trump or Hilary… If everyone "wasted their vote" maybe we wouldn't be so screwed and would have a president that isn't synonymous with a complete moron

exactly. 58% of eligible american voters view both candidates poorly, if they actually voted third party maybe we wouldn’t be stuck in such a shitty predicament

To my Followers

This is the only post I’ll make on this subject, but please hear me out.

I know your Tumblrs are being bombarded with the up-coming elections. You’re probably getting sick of hearing about it, but to those who still haven’t registered to vote and are eligible, to those who aren’t sure if they even want to vote: please do. Please, register and vote. 

Some of you are planning to vote, and want to do a Protest Vote (voting neither republic or democratic) but this is not the time for that. These series of post explain why much better than I could, so I ask you to look over them before making your final decision. 

I have on my blog the automatic link to register for voting, it’s a very simple form. You will need to be able to print it out and mail it in. If you don’t have a printer at home, use your local library, work printer, or school printer. The form you need to print will be emailed to you as well so you’re able to print it later. 

There are deadlines for when to Register that vary from State to State! You can not Vote if you miss these deadlines.

You can check the deadline for your state here.

As said in posts I linked to above, keep in mind that “The majority of congress is up for election this year. You wanna see change, you want to make your voice heard? STAY POLITICALLY ACTIVE AND KEEP VOTING. You’re right, every vote can and does count, you can help change the course of American politics and history, but it doesn’t end with the Presidential election.” 

Stay active, stay informed, and stay involved. If you have any questions, just ask me and we can figure it out together. <3 

es tonto pensar que podemos ser sin ciertas personas, 

todos tenemos nuestro lugar, nuestra familia formada(porque la familia se elige, no te confundas, no siempre es la que te toco, sino la que armas vos, aquella donde encontras amor puro y apoyo incondicional), nuestro gran amor(aquel que al paso de la vida nos enseña a mirar con otros ojos, que nos hace experimentar lo que es estar enamorado de mil formas y es aquella persona que cuando mires un futuro queres verla, siempre ahi, al lado tuyo agarrados de las manos sin soltar), tus amigos(aquellos que te llenan de posibilidades, que te hacen ver la luz, que hacen que tu sol salga cuando no logras encontrarlo, donde te mostras vos mismo y son aquellos hermanos que hay que elegirlos muy bien), las cosas mas lindas de la vida las pasamos con los otros, y esos otros no llegan solos, la vida nos da la posibilidad de ver, mirar bien, y elegir bien, si aprendes eso, no vas a ser vos y tu gente, sino que vamos a ser NOS(OTROS).

Friday is the deadline for the 2017 Grammys, so Adele, Beyonce will be competing. I think Ed, KP, Gaga, The Weeknd and who knows who else will all be releasing by the end of this year and into next year for the 2018 Grammys. Taylor is probably going to keep with her Oct schedule and release next fall at the beginning of the 2019 Grammys eligibility period.

i won’t make it until next fall… i’m weak, i need new music soon… i know i should let her enjoy her break but she made sure we knew she war already working on TS6 so she better not play with my heart 

Off-Topic: Voter Registration

Referral (helps us out): https://plz.vote/r/ol3riz

Non-Referral: https://www.voteplz.org/

Ok, here’s the deal. Today is National Voter Registration Day in the United States. I have been referred to a website called voteplz. It has a silly name. But it also has a lot of really good information on the voting process, and what you have to do to be eligible to vote. Follow the link, referral or not, fill out one form, and make sure you are registered. It gives you your status immediately.

If you use my referral link, you’re helping me and Joie out. We get points, and I’m a sucker for a good gamified system. If not, that’s cool too. This is still going to be an important election, and everyone’s voice needs to be heard.

Alright, no more politics. That’s the last you’ll hear of it from me.
