for once in your life be cool

Yeah, having a boyfriend is cool but so is singing to your favourite song in the shower and licking cake batter off of spoons and feeling the warm sand between your toes at the beach and buying your friends flowers on their birthdays.

Yeah, having a girlfriend is cool but so is acing that one test you studied so hard for and smiling at strangers and giving money to the homeless girl you see on your way to work every day and falling asleep to the sound of rain.

Yeah, being popular is cool but so is laughing with your brother until your stomach hurts and seeing your sister smile after you tell her she looks beautiful and hugging your parents once they get home at the end of the day.

Yeah, aiming to be loved by people is cool but don’t let it get in the way of life. Don’t forget to live.

Recognize that the very molecules that make up your body, the atoms that construct the molecules, are traceable to the crucibles that were once the centers of high mass stars that exploded their chemically rich guts into the galaxy, enriching pristine gas clouds with the chemistry of life. So that we are all connected to each other biologically, to the earth chemically and to the rest of the universe atomically. That’s kinda cool! That makes me smile and I actually feel quite large at the end of that. It’s not that we are better than the universe, we are part of the universe. We are in the universe and the universe is in us.
Why the signs are into astrology

Taurus:wanted to know more about placements and wanted guidance
Gemini:wanted to know who their soulmate could be
Cancer:wanted to know more about their friends and family

Virgo:uses astrology to determine why other people’s lives are messes and how they, as a Virgo, can help fix them
Libra:wants to see if their current relationship is compatible
Scorpio:found out Saturn rules your fears and now utilizes birth charts when concocting revenge on others
Sagittarius:they just like learning about new things
Capricorn:wanted to prove it wrong and realized it’s actually correct. Now spends their time using astrology to try and control their life
Aquarius: thought it would fit into their quirky cool vibe, realized that it was actually pretty great

i think tumblr should have a mandatory seminar that you have to take before you sign up on learning how to be cool and chill the fuck out for once in your damn life

LGBT+ books: Georgia Peaches and Other Forbidden Fruit by Jaye Robin Brown

“Here’s what I know. Kissing Mary Carlson is spooning homemade peach ice cream into your mouth on the hottest Georgia day. It is shooting stars and hot lava. It is every goose bump you ever had in your entire life built up and exploding all at once. It is going to be the end of me, but I don’t care. “

Aquarius: Cool, smart and independent. Yoga freak. Listens to Jazz. Loves her bicycle more than she likes people. Introvert. Wants to work in the Red Cross. Last night she told me about her astral travel - how she flew to the roof of her house and watched the city from there. 

Pisces: Beautiful eyes. Optimist. Interested in spirituality. Likes comfort and warmth. Is a little shy. Studies well. Hates arguing with people. Wants to travel to Thailand with me next summer. 

Recognize that the very molecules that make up your body, the atoms that construct the molecules, are traceable to the crucibles that were once the centers of high mass stars that exploded their chemically rich guts into the galaxy, enriching pristine gas clouds with the chemistry of life. So that we are all connected to each other biologically, to the earth chemically, and to the rest of the universe atomically. That’s kinda cool!

VIRGO - Dating

WOMAN:

A Virgo woman is earthly and she may seem cold and detached, but underneath the timid, reserved surface lies the real woman, a strong, passionate woman with a great capacity for strong devoted love. She will play hard to get, she is hard to get for she is worried about exposing her emotional vulnerabilities and getting hurt. She requires patience and you will have to court her and work hard to impress her. Once she is in love, it is for the long term. She will be devoted, loyal and make you very happy and even put a little order in your life. Virgo woman is conservative and old-fashioned, a typical woman who is perfect for the man who loves a challenge and likes to take a relationship slowly.


MAN:

The Virgo man has a cool exterior with a sensitive interior. He has tremendous respect for a woman and will treat her like and equal. He likes women who stir his emotions because he is reluctant to express his own emotions, which he tries and this often causes conflict not just inside himself, but it spills out into the relationship. This man takes patience and understanding. He will not get extremely close so do not try to enter his psyche and become closely entangled, this will make him feel threatened. He needs a classy woman who is not impulsive or unconventional. He leads a predictable life and a predictable woman will make him feel safe. He is perfect for the down to earth, conventional woman. He won’t be romantic and sweep you off your feet, but he will be by your side and be very loyal. This man’s sensuality comes out with time. For the woman who wants a stable, solid relationship with a visible, smooth sailing future is perfect for the Virgo man.

The cool thing about YouTube is that once you start watching certain kinds of videos, it’ll start recommending similar content, so after a while things will just show up in your homepage that you might be interested in and end up liking! YouTubers often collaborate so that is another great way to find more content. The other great thing is a lot of YouTubers will put the links to similar content in the ‘related channels’ bar to the right of the ‘featured’ page of their channel. You can look there if you’re ever stuck for content and want to get into something similar.

Another thing you can do is look for a radio station or a TV channel that you enjoy and subscribe to them on YouTube. Try to do it for channels/stations in a variety of countries to get different cultural insights as well as the opportunity to expose yourself to different accents.

Additionally, if you’re interested in finding content on YouTube in a target language just go to youtube.com/videos and at the very bottom of the page simply change the country to one where the language you want to practice is spoken and you’ll see all the videos that are popular in the country at the moment!

Bonus

Things I don’t want to see in season 2:

D’:

Chell: Oh come on, why don’t you try to be good at something for once?

Wheatley: Hmmm…nah. You see, when you try but fail, people think you’re a twit. But if you skip the trying and decide to fail right away, then everyone thinks you got the talent but you’re to cool to waste it on them. It’s like chickens, no one knows if they can really fly or not. That’s what makes them cool!

Chell: So that’s your life plan, huh? Be a massive chicken?

Wheatley: Yes! And cackle at the eagles when they crash and burn!!!!!

My concern is that there is enormous pressure on young, even slightly nonfeminine afab people in LGBT communities to disidentify from womanhood either partially or fully, because of what are pretty obviously misogynist ideas of what women are supposed to be. I’ve experienced that pressure personally and know many, many other women who either transitioned medically or socially because they felt enormous pressure to, because remaining a woman who isn’t interested in femininity is so socially unacceptable in LGBT scenes, and continuing to identify as a woman is seen as less radical, less cool, and in some cases objectively incorrect- I’ve had many people tell me I’ll identify again as something other than a woman eventually. So no, I don’t think the idea that suddenly once you’re afab and identify as not a woman anymore your whole life history should be rewritren, misogyny magically never affects you (usually the reasoning given for this is some weak claim about how -affect- determines gender objectively), and now you’re a misogynist who oppresses real women. It’s for this reason that I’m wary of politics which lump “nonwomen” as a group in somehow with literal cis men as though they have anything in common on a material basis at all. They don’t.

I think it’s hogwash and as someone who’s -been- nb and seen that nothing about my material reality changed when I slapped a new gender label on myself, I’m skeptical of those politics, refuse to reenact them, etc. And when the number of women I know who’ve been harmed by those politics, who spent years thinking they weren’t allowed to be women and are trying to cope and reconcile grows steadily over the years (and it will keep growing- these politics are too unstable, cause too much pain, for them to hold out long) I’m increasingly opposed to them. Really the idea that there’s an inherent line between us and them (and I think this is true for literally any genders- cis men aren’t somehow fated to be terrible people from birth) is really just another kind of essentialism, rooted in self concept rather than the body. You can acknowledge shared experiences, certain shared realities, without going out of your way to misgender other people who don’t see themselves the way you see yourself. I think that’s very fair.

Imagine teasing Poe Dameron

The Black Leader was resting by his X-Wing, letting the shade from its looming presence keep him cool under the blazing sun shining down on Jakku. You walked over to him with your filled canteen, tossing it to the handsome man.

“Are you actually resting for once in your life, Dameron?”

He smirked up and squinted, “I’m just waiting for you. Ready to get back?”

“You mean am I ready to leave this scorching heat?”

“Oh come on, this place is special,” Poe stood up and took a long drink from the canteen. He let out a soft ‘ah’ before handing the drink over to you. “We met here.”

You grinned and shrugged casually. “Must have slipped my mind.”

“I guess I’d be embarrassed too, if I had thrown myself at a handsome pilot.” 

Poe’s lips formed a wide smile that you couldn’t resist. Instead you just pulled him by his orange jumpsuit toward you.

“What can I say? I can’t resist a charming man, especially the second greatest pilot in the Resistance.”

“Second! Who’s the first!”

You quickly placed a kiss on his lips and rushed toward your X-Wing. “Who do you think! I’ll race you back!”

honestly just as an exercise I strongly suggest working to decenter men in your life and questioning whether your feelings about individual men are based on genuine attraction or desire for their approval. if the outcome of this process is that you’re still into them, cool! you’ll know more about yourself and be empowered in your interactions. but, if you’re anything like me, you may find that the process of giving up this approval-seeking can also pretty well quelch any sense of attraction you may have once had. compulsory heterosexuality is more deeply ingrained than you could ever imagine, and once you begin the work of extricating yourself from it, you might find yourself feeling freer than you ever have before. you’ve got nothing to lose by trying, and everything to gain.

Someone once said “If it doesn’t challenge you, then it doesn’t change you” The feeling of uncomfortableness means growth. Whether your growing on a mental, physical, spiritual and or emotional level. This is the first stage of the roller coaster. No matter how times you try to prepare for it you can’t be ready for it, because its growth, its new! Your going to have a new life, you’ll come out a new person😊 Trust the process and share it with the world.

ok but have y'all considered?? autistic ace??????? like look:

he fronts like a Cool Punk bc the scripts are easy & it gives him an excuse to ignore social cues, inside he is a Nerd

he takes off his shirt all the time bc clothing is lame and uncomfortable & why would u wear it if u don’t Have To

(also has no concept of ‘‘‘‘‘‘modesty’’’’’’; Kate once asked him if he’d ever heard of modesty in his Life & ace was like “no, is that like a celebrity or your new girlfriend or what”)

uses highly sexual language bc it’s an easy way to talk, it conveys p specific meanings that are easily understandable in many situations w few words

very aware of physical space around him, not so much w ppl stuff

fixates on Marcus, but like, the construct he has of him in his head, bc actually socialling is Fucking Hard

anyways thank u for ur consideration and have a nice day

I’m kept under the thumb at home. Seriously. I drive the kinds to school and do the dishes after lunch. I’m as gentle as a lamb. When I’m at home and my choreographer wife is at work, I do the shopping as well. I’m just your everyday no-frills guy. I’m even a tad boring. I’m certainly not a demon or a psychopath. I don’t take my work at home. That’s how I protect my mental wellbeing. I’m not schizophrenic - unlike some actors, who cannot shed their characters once they’re off set. I’m not easy to cool down after expressing really strong feelings, but I’m working on it. I’m glad that I have profession that occasionally lets me swap my comfortable, bourgeois, peaceful life for something crazy and bizarre that I would never dare try in real life. I think that’s a healthy approach. At home I’m husband and father.
