KissAnime now requires viewers to sit through ads and blocks adblockers, unless you have a paid premium account. So the popular “why I use pirate sites instead of Crunchyroll” excuses of “I don’t like ads” or “I don’t want to pay for it” don’t even work anymore.
Torrenting is probably morally cleaner tbh than using illegal streaming sites. At least you’re not giving them money?
Also I get that a lot of people are broke af but I regularly see “I don’t want to pay for it!” from people who clearly can afford all kinds of merch and shit that I can’t on my grad student budget. A grad student budget that is still able to pay for multiple monthly streaming services!
Her name is Nina (the North is just the signature) She is very shy and awkward buts thats because she wasn’t near anyone for years, until the Link showed up which gained her attention. (she had never seen a hylian before).
She can be lazy at times but is usually out looking for new rocks or fishing with others or herself. She is very curious which can lead her to trouble at times.
The band aids around her legs are because she ended up missing a rock ledge and well ended up scraping them badly on the other rocks. The marks on her neck are from her scratching, from long ago. The blue marks are from spacial dye she found once.
Her sketch book is waterproof. the jewelry she wears isn’t gold but she again dyed it to look like gold. She is very shy when it comes to complements (drawing mostly) and she usually just swims away.
obvs there is something great about when a Big Scary turns into a Big Softie where Tiny Useless is concerned, but what i like better is:
Tiny Useless decides, with no prompting and for no apparent reason whatsoever, that Big Scary needs protecting. and if no one else will do it then this accidentally-gets-stepped-on, blows-away-in-a-stiff-breeze motherfucker is going to have to be the one to protect this living mountain of pain. you wanna get to this troll, you’re gonna have to go through this pixie. you try to come for this tibetan mastiff, this chihuahua’s gonna try to kick your ass first.
and the Big Scary is mostly just?? really confused???? there are at least twenty different reasons why this is fucking dumb. but also this feeble lil shit is the first person in the entire world to try and stand up for this person that absolutely does not need it. Big Scary continues to be huge and terrifying but now Tiny Useless has their undying loyalty and it will probably not end well for anyone.
Your sun sign represents your pride, ego, and what you like about yourself, as well as what qualities you admire in others. All the planets in our solar system revolve around the sun; this celestial body gives our world structure, stability, life, and light.
When you do things for the right reason, you are more likely to find happiness and success. Your sun sign, the constellation that rules your inner guiding light, indicates what that (right) reason might be.
You should do things…
Aries: for yourself, because you fucking feel like it.
Taurus: because you want to, and only because you want to.
Gemini: because you want to know more about the world around you.
Cancer: because they make you feel safe, cared for, and comfortable.
Leo: because they bring you attention, love, and recognition.
Virgo: because they help you become a better person, and help others too.
Libra: because they bring you inner peace and sate your thirst for justice.
Scorpio: because they make you feel deeply and resonate with your inner truth.
Sagittarius: because they’re fun, and make you smile and laugh.
Capricorn: because they pave the way to your future.
Aquarius: because they help you genuinely feel connected to other people.
Pisces: because they help merge your internal fantasies with external reality.
Example/explanation: If a Sagittarius uses, say, Cancer’s reason as their ‘guiding light,’ they are likely to end up feeling trapped and stuck. With Virgo’s reason, they might feel bored, anxious, and burdened. With Pisces’ reason, they may feel lost. A Sagittarius who does things just for fun, instead of to establish future security (like a Capricorn) or to get attention/recognition (Leo) is more likely to accomplish their chosen goal, and have a good time doing it. Things come to you more naturally if you approach your goals with the correct mentality.
“I fought too long & too hard against discrimination based on race & color, not to fight against discrimination based on sexual orientation,” tweeted civil rights icon John Lewis on July 23, 2015.
Fifty-five years ago, on May 14, 1961, Lewis rode with the Freedom Riders in a bus pelted by rocks and bricks, as axes smashed through windshields, a firebomb lobbed through the shattered glass. State troopers fired warning shots – but whom they warned was not the violent mob.
The bus’s passengers were black and white Americans riding together, testing the recent Supreme Court ruling that said it would be illegal to segregate public transportation passengers based on their race.
John Lewis was the first Freedom Rider to be assaulted. And yet, a battered face and broken ribs did not prevent him from continuing his ride. “We were determined not to let any act of violence keep us from our goal,” Lewis has said of the experience. “We knew our lives could be threatened, but we had made up our minds not to turn back.”
As the fight for civil rights continued over the ensuing years, Lewis kept to his conviction that there was no turning back. Three years following the Freedom Riders’ journeys aboard greyhounds, Lewis marched in Selma, Mississippi, in a demonstration of their urgent insistence on African Americans’ right to vote amidst widespread voter suppression. On a day that became known as Bloody Sunday, the peaceful protesters were beaten by state troopers who met them at the end of Edmond Pettus Bridge.
After a lifetime of fighting for civil rights, John Lewis has never stooped to rest. As a champion of LGBTQ rights, Lewis gave an impassioned speech in a 1996 debate on the Defense of Marriage Act, where he lashed out against any who would deny LGBTQ citizens’ their right to marriage.
“I will not turn my back on another American,” he said. “I will not oppress my fellow human being. I fought too hard and too long against discrimination based on race and color to stand up against discrimination based on sexual orientation.”
Lewis has been elected to Congress fourteen times, a few times running unopposed, beloved for his bravery and dedication to fighting for the rights of his constituents and fellow Americans at large. He has recently received media attention for the criticism laid down on him by President Donald Trump, who said of the civil rights hero, “All talk, talk, talk — no action or results. Sad!”
With the sun high on the first day of February, a new month awaits dedicated to remembering the contributions of Black Americans throughout our history. They are the trailblazers who have fought tirelessly for justice and equality, and who today continue to fight for their community, in addition to others marginalized in similar manners, allies united in their advocation.
you see, i don’t think the girls are being mean-spirited, i don’t think they have bad intentions toward sana, i don’t think they would ever want her to feel hurt and rejected and misunderstood. not at all. they’re not actively trying to do that. but lack of bad intent doesn’t make the way they (especially vilde) behave okay, it’s not what makes them good friends to her. and yes, it would be great if sana felt like she could open up more, if she felt like she could tell the girls how uncomfortable they sometimes make her feel, how excluded she feels. but sana shouldn’t be the only one making an effort. the girls shouldn’t have to wait for sana to explain herself for them to understand because they should also be trying to understand her. being friends means making proactive efforts, it means trying to understand your friend as a whole, trying to understand their reality and the things that matter to them. it means taking the time to put yourself in their shoes, it means asking questions and trying to learn because you want to. because a friend is someone you love and care about, because their friendship is something you value, it’s something that requires work
and it’s not as though sana is being completely passive. she’s been outspoken, she has called out vilde multiple times, she has let them know when she disagreed with them. but sana can’t always be the one making the first step, she shouldn’t always be the one who tries and tries. i love the girls. i think they’re wonderful and i think they have good hearts. but i’m not disappointed by their behavior because i think they’re ill-intentioned, i’m disappointed because i think they’re sometimes being negligent, because i see that there are efforts they should be making, that they should’ve been making since the beginning of their friendship, and which they haven’t been making
anyway!! Here’s a drawing of Kageyama working part-time at Ukai’s convenience store because I have an AU where he lives alone and has to pay for groceries somehow and Hinata finds out by bumping into Kageyama while he’s working. also i kinda just wanted to draw kageyama in an apron and a headscarf ahahahahahahah
