going to have a ball

I'm gonna say this right now:

If you can’t put your face to a comment: don’t fucking do it.
I don’t support anon hate in any way shape or form. Regardless of the circumstances. If you send anon hate, you’re a bag of shit, plain and simple. At least have the balls to go off anon.
And honestly? Wasting time going into people’s inboxes to leave shitty comments says more about you than it does them. At least they have the courage to put their name to their comments and assume the responsibility for them.

Throughout the years, a lot of feminist critiques have panned Cinderella, including Emma Watson most recently, claiming that she’s a subservient doormat who lacks agency and waits for a man to save her throughout the course of her film. This criticism is null and void because Cinderella never once mentions wanting to find romantic love or wanting to meet the prince before attending the ball. This theory circulating, that many people have mindlessly reiterated, speculating that Cinderella planned to go to the ball to be saved by the prince is completely unfounded on the grounds that Cinderella ended up leaving the ball at midnight without so much as giving her name and, on screen, she verbally indicates that she had no idea the man she danced with the night prior was the prince at least three times. Ilene Woods, the original voice actress of Cinderella who had a lot of input into the development of the character, stated, “[Cinderella] was kind of spunky. She accepted life as it was and went after things she wanted. I think she was a spirited girl. I don’t think she needed the prince. I think she wanted to go to the ball and that was it at the moment. Then the prince wanted her and vice versa.”

i’m just drawing things out of boredom at this point?? still love these boys tho

the signs as ways i've answered "are you a boy or a girl?"
  • Aries: fuck if i know
  • Taurus: i am groot
  • Gemini: what are my other options?
  • Cancer: i am a train wreck and train wrecks do not have genders, they only have pain
  • Leo: go ask a magic eight ball, you'll get an easier answer
  • Virgo: the gender binary is a lie and i'm too busy saving $15 or more on my car insurance to talk about it
  • Libra: i'm fine, how are you?
  • Scorpio: *doesn't answer, pretends they never asked*
  • Sagittarius: i'm a racoon living in your attic
  • Capricorn: are you professor oak?
  • Aquarius: bitch i might be
  • Pisces: no. no, no, no....no.

Some of these will not apply to many people so pls take them with a grain of salt. Also I’ve been collecting these pretty much for the two years I’ve been in college so it’s not a guide, they’re just… random I guess.

Making friends 

Warning - specially tailored for super shy people aka me

  • There’s a thing called the ‘first week window of endless oportunities’. It’s when groups are still forming and everyone’s desperate to make friends. This is the time to put your best self forward (I’m not saying be fake, just a little extra friendly).
  • Leave. Your. Door. Open. Do it. Even if you have a roommate. Best way to make friends the first week.
  • Actually get out of your room. You’re not going to meet many people if you hole up in your room. If you have a tv room or people are watching a movie, I don’t care if you’re not interested in what they’re watching, go.
  • If you have the balls to go to the room nextdoor and introduce yourself then you probably can skip this section by all means do it!
  • But if you don’t, going from door to door asking for help with your laundry takes a lot less courage + you will learn how to do laundry. Asking to borrow something (pencil, hair tie, hair dryer) also works.
  • If you’re staying at a residence hall, ask to sit with people at lunch! Nobody is going to say no, i promise.
  • Similarly if you see someone alone, ask them to have lunch with you! 
  • Also if you meet someone you get along with, as soon as you can, ask for their number ‘so you can go to the dinning hall together’. 
  • Remember people’s names - it makes people feel like you actually care about them. I know it’s hard but make an effort. Also it just gets annoying when someone asks about your name for the fourth time. Use mnemonics if you have to.
  • Asking what someone’s major is and where they’re from is standard procedure when you meet them but it doesn’t make for an interesting conversation. Think of other questions!
  • Make sure to arrive about 10 min early to your classes. There’ll be very few people and so it’ll be easier to strike up a conversation (actually people will probably talk to you without you having to say anything which is g r e a t)
  • Say yes - as a rule of thumb, your social life should prevail over your academic life the first two weeks. This is the time where you’re not really pressed for time. Say yes to watching movies, say yes to going to lunch, say yes to going to campus events (and even to parties). Obviously don’t do anything that makes you really unconfortable but do try to step out of your comfort zone
  • Make friends with an upper-classman from your same major. Or at least be on speaking terms. Talk to them on Facebook, ask them about your major, just use any random idc excuse to introduce yourself, it doesn’t really matter how you do it.
  • Don’t go home every weekend, even if you live close by. You’ll miss out on the best of campus life and some of the most fun memories with your new friends.

Keeping your old friends

  • If you know you’re going home for the weekend, try to finish most of your assignments/studying and make time to hang out with your friends. Spending time with them is the best way to keep those friendships alive. 
  • But! Don’t worry too much if you can’t come home or make time for your friends too often, you just have to make an effort to text them regularly. It will come naturally if it’s your best friend, but don’t forget to set a reminder to text other close friends at least once every two weeks.
  • You may think you don’t care now but you will once you come home for the summer.
  • If any of your friends are staying in your hometown for college, be ready for them to get another friend group. That doesn’t mean they’ve forgotten about you, but don’t be mad if they seem to have a lot more plans that don’t involve you. You can always ask to tag along some time and maybe even become friends with these people!
  • Some people you’ll just lose contact with. Don’t fret it.

Organization

  • Please print out or buy a calendar that has a whole page for each month. With boxes preferably *shameless plug*. You may think you have it all under control but there’s nothing like being able to see all your due dates, hang out plans and laundry days at a glance. (Also js but the pilot frixion are perfect to use on calendars because they’re erasable).
  • There’s so much space under your bed. UTILIZE IT.

The traditional Altean masquerade ball! Neither was particularly interested in it, but Lance bet Pidge couldn’t get the juniberri princess to dance with her, there was no way she could refuse it, right? And maybe it turns out the princess is not so bad…

Ooh, yes! Freddy’s got the bad guy frozen with a magnet!

Now, the gang can go grab the final Scooby Snacks and escape this virtual world.

Go get them, Scoob! 

I mean, the movie reiterated mere minutes ago that – to the digital people – magnets cause:

1. Immobility

2. Complete helplessness

3. Total lack of awareness

4. Temporary memory loss

So, you’re perfectly safe, Scooby!

…oh, no, silly, no need to be sneaky. Just run up there and grab them, this is everyone’s big chance!

…no, seriously, the bad guy can’t do anything. At all. You know he can’t see you, or react to your movement. You, or any of the rest of the gang, can walk straight past him.

…look, Scoob, just go up there already, please? There’s no reason to risk wasting time, all you need to do is go forward. Why isn’t anyone else trying to–

…oh, come on, now.

Y’know, actually, you could just walk around the side of the room to get to the Scooby Snacks, if you wanted. Or maybe even run, seeing as your lives are in danger and all.

Honestly, this could have been over in 4 seconds, had you not decided to slink around the random gray balls at Freddy’s feet.

or if the rest of the gang had just walked over there themselves during this copious amount of time. C’mon, lend the dog a hand! Your survival kinda depends on it.

…oh, goody, and now the gray balls randomly turn into yellow/green balls, because logic.

…oh, double goody, Fred also decided to get in unnecessarily close to the bad guy, and not watch where he’s going!

Gee, I wonder what’s going to happen.

OH NOES WHOEVER COULD HAVE IMAGINED IT

HE TRIPPED OVER BOTH THE BALL AND SCOOBY

IF ONLY THERE HAD BEEN ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING THAT COULD HAVE BEEN DONE DIFFERENTLY TO PREVENT THIS SITUATION

Look… I’m not expecting a masterpiece of a script from Scooby-Doo, here, but when your heroes need to have a auto-win situation foiled by an intricately-choreographed series of bad decisions… maaaybe you ought to re-write the scene.

okay. fuck. so, i had to dig into the depths of my old blog to recover this, but here it is. that stupid fucking kara/diana one-shot i scribbled down after i saw batman v superman for the first time. it’s been collecting dust in my drafts for over a year. i totally planned to edit it and at least try to fix it before i posted it, because there’s literally no plot, and it doesn’t even have a title, but… there’s… literally nothing i can do with it. it’s beyond saving.

@featsanvers and @love-is-a-state-of-mind, look what you’ve made made do. are you both happy now??? i’m going to go jump off a cliff! :)

OK so I know I’m like the only person on Tumblr still playing Neko Atsume, but today’s update freaks me out a little bit.  There’s one new rare cat, and he’s called Whiteshadow.  His “type” is not the usual like, grey, or calico, or whatever… no, it’s NINJA COSTUME!!!

Also, I saw him as soon as I opened the app a few minutes ago, standing on a fence in the yard, not anywhere I’ve ever seen one of the cats before, just standing there staring, not on any of the spots where the toys and stuff go. 

I thought it was odd and a little spooky; I took a couple pictures of him, looked at them on his page, and went back to the yard.  He was gone just like that, in like three seconds, and instead of fish he left three cans of cat food???  Which since I don’t use that kind of cat food and already had 99 cans of it meant I got nothing, really??

Then I looked closer at his profile page…  Under “goodies”, he doesn’t use any “goodies” like the other cats… no, he just goes on “scouting missions”.  Who is he scouting for?  Is someone about to take over the yard??  Am I becoming paranoid over a simple silly game about cute cats???  (…yes)

This game is just trying to see how far it can go at this point and still keep crazy addicted users like me… 


I need to tell myself at this point: you idiot there are starving children in the world… stop wasting your time playing and worrying about this ridiculous game… but then I think… I can’t neglect the cats!!!  oh my g this is pathetic I need a life and a real hobby…

Trans* Students at Hogwarts

But seriously guys, imagine:

Transgender people at Hogwarts. 

Little first years at the sorting ceremony, the sorting hat whispering in their ear “It’ll get better. Just wait. I know who you really are.” as their toes curl, because they know. They know.

They come out in like year five or six, and they change dorms, and all the people in their new dorm accept them.

Maybe they loan them hairs for polyjuice elixir, so they can try transitioning.

FtM’s getting magical binders that gives them the physical relief and feeling of not binding but the physical appearance of a flat chest.

MtF’s getting magical bras that give the appearance of breasts but doesn’t give them neck pains like breastplates.

And they change their name and pronouns, and all the forms magically change to fit their gender, people get little magic reminders when they misgender them.

Madam Pomfrey gives them ointments and stuff, and their body change. Professor Macgonall shows them how to magically change their voice.

Students combating the howlers from outraged parents by sending howlers to the parents shouting at them to be decent human beings. They start sending howlers to the students saying things like “I really like how your beard is starting to look!” or “You look really nice in that skirt and your legs look super smooth!” or “You have the cutest smile, wanna go to the Yule Ball?!”.

The Trans students staying at school during all holidays to avoid abuse at home.

Oh my god can you imagine?
