ha i made this with a thing from facebook

Not a fact: We crossed 50,000 followers in September. Thank you for that! I’ve been writing facts for the last 3 or 4 years though this year has been more stagnant, for which I can only apologise. I think it’s tough to keep making the same jokes in different ways so I’ll see about being more creative with things in the future. (taking suggestions too)

I just wanted to say thank you because I don’t feel like I’ve said it before. One of the most amazing things about this blog for me has been seeing content I’ve written, my words, unexpectedly while browsing facebook or getting a message from a friend telling me that a post i wrote has made it’s way on to a buzzfeed listicle. It’s been surreal. Thank you.

things derek malik nurse has actually said out loud unsarcastically that has made everyone in the vicinity want to punch him

  • “No i deleted my facebook two years ago because it was making me feel way too disconnected from my inner voice”
  • “maybe that test would have gone better if I wasn’t an aquarius. my horoscope was right. i should have stayed in today.”
  • “sitting in a pile of leafs is just how i feel, yknow, connected,”
  • “i gotta go check out the new vegan grill down the street, i heard they have a deconstructed black bean burger with kale chips that’s pretty good”

Over the last couple of months, I’ve had dozens of people ask me (through my blogs, through our butch support group on facebook, and through our local meetup group) if I could help them figure out if they were butch. This has ranged from “can you be a sounding board for me to work through some stuff?” (which I’m always happy to do, makes me feel useful!) to “can you basically just give me the answer?” (to which i would like to say, “i don’t know a fuckin thing my guy”). 

Its made me realize what a rocky (ha, ha) terrain this is for so many people. god, I know how it felt for me to settle into butch, like pulling on your most weather worn boots that have, over time, totally aligned to the shape of your feet. Sometimes I forget what it was like to break them in. Sometimes I forget how lost you feel before you’ve found your home. If I can raise the lantern to the path behind me, I’d very much like to do that, for anyone still stumbling through the dark.

When people come to me and want to work out their feelings about their relationship to butch, I don’t ask questions like, have you ever been mistaken for a man, are you attracted to femmes, is your hair short, do you have a strong build, are you dysphoric, do you wear flannel shirts and solid men’s shoes. These are all things associated with butchness, and certainly with good reason, but they aren’t the definition. This isn’t about what you put on your body. Neither is it a wishy washy identity thing - it’s something you can’t take off or put on, just something you can choose to own or not. I am butch no matter what I do.

Think about the last time you saw a butch in public. Like, a real live butch stranger, existing and living out there. How did you feel? Did your heart light up for a moment, hoping she’d see you? If you’ve had the pleasure to be around other butches already, do you feel camaraderie? Does something hard and rough unfold just a little at the edges before you go back out into the world? When you read butch words, butch history, do you feel rooted and real? Does it make you feel like you can live?

When I tried to hide my butch self, it was miserable - and everyone could see through it anyway. When I came home, I found myself. I found myself in womanhood. I found myself in lesbianism. I found a paper trail of proof that I exist, have existed throughout history, will continue to exist, that I don’t have to stuff my unwilling and untamed body into a falsehood of femininity or the dissociative state of manhood. Suddenly, I had roots. Suddenly, my feet were on the ground - armored by these old weather worn boots that have seen me through so much.

"Scully, please teach me how to use Twitter, nothing makes sense anymore."

“Scully, please teach me how to use Twitter.  Nothing makes sense anymore.”  Scully glances up from her laptop at Mulder, who’s leaning back in his chair with his feet kicked up on the desk, frowning at his phone.

“Mulder,” she sighs, “do you remember what happened when you discovered Pinterest?  All I heard about for days were ‘natural’ cures for everyday ailments that have absolutely no basis in science.  And you still haven’t finished half the repurposing projects you’ve got strewn all over the basement.”

“I’m getting to them, Scully,” he promises.  “It’s just that the people who posted those tutorials make it seem a lot easier than it really is.”

“And how about when you got my nephew to teach you how to use Snapchat?” she continues.  “Skinner couldn’t look either of us in the eye for weeks.”

“In my defense,” Mulder argues, “your names are right next to each other, and I didn’t have my reading glasses.  Just be glad I didn’t accidentally send that picture to your brother instead.”

“And then,” Scully steamrollers on, “there was the Facebook debacle.  How many times did I get up in the middle of the night and find you arguing politics on your computer with some idiot you went to middle school with?  Mulder, you are never going to change someone’s mind in a Facebook debate.”

“I wasn’t arguing to try and change his mind, Scully,” Mulder says.  “I know he’s an idiot.  I was arguing for the benefit of people who might be reading who haven’t made up their minds about the issue yet.”  Scully rolls her eyes.

“One way or another, Mulder,” she sighs, “I am not teaching you how to Tweet.  The last thing I need is Skinner finding out that one of his agents has gotten into a Twitter war with the moron from that ‘Ancient Aliens’ show.”  Mulder opens his mouth to respond, and Scully holds up her hand, forestalling him.  “Let’s face it, Mulder,” she says, turning back to her work.  “Social media just isn’t for you.”

recently facebook has been bombarding me with memories from hobbitcon and I came across this pic of @bittersuites and I as thranduil and his wife <3

I loved cosplaying an elf tho personality wise I am more of a hobbit and this dress was one of the first things I made that I actually felt was technically not a piece of shit.

hobbitcon and the hobbit have been a massive influence on my journey as a sewer and cosplayer so it not excisting anymore and the films being over is still a very weird feeling to cope with.

So if you excuse me for a minute I’m gonna go unwind with an old fashioned bathroom cry 。:゚(;´∩`;)゚:。

What the ever loving fuck is wrong with you people?

You people  You Antis, NST, Truthers, Haters, wtfer name you want to be called or are called. You people. You know I’m talking to you @noshippingallowed @contemplatingoutlander @goldenoutlander @adhara112 @aliceinoutlanerland (oops you forgot the d in outlander. get a d.) @whylimewhyanything (put the lime in the coconut) @whoreallyknowswho (it’s whom! whom! unless you just forgot to finish your sentence) @prodigiousreblogger @bestof60 (are you 60?) @vividdreamer318 (your imagination is certainly leading you astray) @breezylouisey (is that you weezy?) @momofmusa (i thought you were mom of USA lol)  @alittlebitmasss (oops your s key got stuck)
Anyway, there are more of you and I’m sorry I didn’t give you a moment of thrill by acknowledging you by name but I mentioned the Tumblr accounts that I’ve seen making horrendously wild, hateful, fictional, hurtful accusations against other Outlander fans with no speck of proof - accusations meant to inspire others to emulate you and spread hate to those people as well. Let me get this straight. From what I can tell, you are super hopping mad about the content of certain Twitter and Instagram accounts. Fine. Totally fine. You are entitled to your opinions. I can see why those accounts might make some people mad. I mean, irrelevant to my life but maybe not yours.  You are mad that certain Twitter and Instagram accounts have been created for the sole purpose of throwing shade and mocking a certain celebrity you hold in high esteem. I get that. Fine. Be outraged! Express yourselves!!
Speaking of fine I know you will go through this post with a fine toothed comb for anything you can argue with and attack me over because god forbid you actually read the message, digest the information, thoughtfully consider the content and then share your thoughts and opinions and maybe answer some of my questions. Nope that’s not your style. Attack attack attack half-cocked and don’t put any thought or concern for reality into it. Yes you are the borg of Antis as the foil to the Shippers. I didn’t create that world, you did. You wanted to be the anti-shippers. You are gathered on Tumblr together to be this Anti-Shipper fighting army. Go forth and fight uhh I guess? WHY???? 
See, shippers are motivated by love. That’s really obvious. There are all types of shippers just as there are all types of people (and even all types of antis), but what brings them together is not just their love of Outlander (and you guys love Outlander too! Whee we have something in common) but their love of the LOVE parts of Outlander and all the LOVE associated with Outlander in promos, BTS, interviews, Q&As, social media banter between the cast and crew, etc. LOVE is LOVE is LOVE is LOVE is LOVE is LOVE is LOVE is LOVE. So you generally don’t see shippers on social media attacking people with hatred and lies and accusations of criminal activity. Wait wait wait. Correction! YOU see shippers doing those things but no one else does. You mostly see shippers doing those things with accounts that aren’t even recognized shipper names. They are basically troll accounts that you have deduced are shipper accounts. You do have these long convoluted narratives of what certain shippers are alleged to have done and you bandy them about so frequently that your telephone game grows legs and walks it’s own marathon and becomes some weird beast-mode attack shipper who does horrible things. You say you SAW these things but you haven’t. Show me a tweet, a facebook post, an instagram post from an Outlander fan who identifies herself as a shipper and has a known persona in the fandom and is attacking, hating, committing these horrendous crimes you claim. What I mean is, SHOW ME THE MONEY! SHOW ME PROOF to back up your narrative. You have specifically named a number of Outlander fans and made outrageous claims as to their character, behavior, beliefs, actions, off-line actions and more. YOU HAVE NO PROOF BECAUSE THESE STORIES ARE FICTION.
I’ll give you an example of how your lies have grown wings, run a marathon and turned into beast-mode:
So a certain blue check account posts that a certain object of your hatred and hate-mongering did something so illegal that she would have been arrested and would still be in jail. You all headnod, mouth breath, feel righteous for having attacked her because you were soooo right, bang away at your keyboards and continue the lies and hatred and stoke the fires for uhhh fun? Yet you all know that she isn’t in jail and couldn’t have done this highly illegal thing because you watch her every move and you saw her posting pics of herself just last weekend participating in a fitness event. Hmmmm. Are you collectively dumbing each other down with your groupthink or all you all that stupid? YOU KNOW IT’S A LIE. But you’ve all convinced each other it’s ok to lie about it, malign, spread hatred and misinformation about certain fans and tarnish their reputation in the fandom because… because? because why??? Help me out here. So it’s because someone has said rude bad things to an actress you believe is Sam Heughan’s girlfriend even though he has never once said so. You BELIEVE it so it’s your reality. And the fans that you malign? You do that because they believe something else. But the weirdest thing is that you do malign them by tossing out totally unfounded and false accusations about their behavior and ascribe all kinds of unsavory activities, motives, and behaviors to these fans you have chosen to malign. You do the thing to them that you so claim to hate they are doing to the objects of your admiration. 
I’m still working on this and I still need your help. So because you BELIEVE that two actors are dating and BELIEVE that it’s wrong that internet trolls make claims that they are not and some internet trolls say really rude things and tag them, you feel fully justified in making claims that the trolls are not just trolls but actual recognizable Outlander fans. Are you like shippers of trollworld or something? 
I’ll just come right out and say it. Kim Hickey is not behind any of those trolls accounts you claim she is. I know this and you know this. You know which accounts are legitimately hers because she identifies herself. You are even attacking her My Peak Challenge account that she posts inspirational memes and encourages people to donate to Bloodwise. Are you for fucking real? You’re attacking a charity endeavor in your blind hatred of…. hatred of who fucking knows.  Even if you didn’t know she wasn’t behind the troll accounts, you absolutely have no basis for claiming she is. You are making shit up and publicly proclaiming it as truth just like that thing that Shippers do that you claim to hate.  Also, let’s talk about me:  I am a public person online. I don’t hide behind cutesy names. You can look me up and it won’t even be doxing me because it’s all right there, isn’t it? I have no sock accounts. I put my name on all my accounts because I own what I say and share. This tumblr account was created in the middle of last summer as a parody of Starz Obsessable campaign therefore it did not need my name on it. I never had a Tumblr account before that and I have never even sent anons on Tumblr. I never pretended I was anyone else or made any attempt to be anyone else. I posted freely about myself and my life when it was topical, including photos of myself. If you were like BINGO I’m such a supersleuth I figured out who is behind that blog!! you’re not smart or observant. It was obvious. The thing is, though, shippers didn’t know who I was. Not because they didn’t know who was behind “Obsessive Sassenach” but because they didn’t know who Nipuna was. Isn’t that funny? One of the Outlander fans on the top of your BAD SHIPPER LIST WHO MUST BE EXTERMINATED list isn’t even known by other shippers. What makes me a shipper? Just that I have heart eyes for Sam and Cait and think they have chemistry and oh wait, whoah, ZOMG, Arthur Kade thinks that too. Josh Horowitz does too! and ummmm ummmm that one lady at TCA that one year and that one book author who was on the NYT best seller list and you know I could go on. It’s not a crime to be fully happy to enjoy Sam and Caitriona’s chemistry. And if that makes me a shipper, yay. But the only reason I’m actually a known component of the shipper community now is because you guys have dragged my name around and created ridiculous lies about me. It’s like I’m some sort of Shipper Legend (to you, not shippers) who does these super crazy Shipper things in AntiLand. Remember the grave story that was created by one of you weirdos because a family friend of mine who is a caretaker for a military graveyard in the USA was friends with Sam’s father? You guys turned it into: That Crazy Shipper Nipuna stalks Sam’s father’s grave in hopes of running into him and Caitriona making a baby on his dad’s grave in Scotland. Or something like that. Anyway, tour bus guides in Scotland think there are crazy Outlander fans who stalk Sam at his father’s grave but if they stop to think they realize they don’t even know if he has a grave or if it’s even in Scotland. 
You’re maligning the whole fucking fandom you freaks! You’re creating these outrageous, convoluted piece of fiction because you are all worked up about uhh something and then you tag other nasty people and get them to repeat the stories and then the stories get embellished and repeated and you sit back and watch the telephone game continue. But don’t you realize that you’re fucking the whole thing up for yourselves too? I mean, I guess not if you like chaos and mayhem. But most of you profess to care about people being nice and kind and cry out that bullying is bad and wrong. But then you do just that when you pick an Outlander fan and create detailed and convoluted lies about her behavior.  The people you lie about know they are lies, sure. And lots of other people know they are lies and ignore you, but you repeat the lies over and over and you know that saying about how if you repeat a lie often enough people will start to believe you. So you repeat and repeat and then sit back and with self satisfied smiles. Or maybe it’s just that your mouth is open because you’re breathing through it. Whatever. I don’t know your motives. I don’t know what attracts you to fan the way you do. I don’t know what fulfills you. I know it’s not LOVE. But do you even know? Are you just running around half-cocked and brainless and letting yourselves be lied to? What gives? Can you help me understand why you are constantly naming and targeting certain people and pointing others to attack them and if that doesn’t work creating stories that will hopefully motivate them to attack? WHY???

anonymous asked:

Y'all really gotta come out of hiatus soon pls cuz this #MeToo thing is going around and I know it's stirring up a bunch of feelings in women and we all need to vent

The reason I have mostly been on hiatus (aside from the stress of studying) is because of this whole thing. It’s made me so angry. I don’t use Facebook much, except for activism organizing, but I have seen this #MeToo thing on there. It’s quite impactful seeing almost all of my female contacts on FB posting this.

I’ll tell you why it has made me angry. Because the hashtag also plays into the whole response from men about the Harvey Weinstein thing. Men are saying how ‘shocked’ and ‘surprised’ and ‘horrified’ they are by his behavior, meanwhile women have known about him since the 90s (maybe even before). So many people knew and pretended they didn’t, so how is it possible that all these men can be so ‘shocked’? The Weinstein scandal sparked conversations among people all over the world, and men are saying they are, again, ‘shocked’ to hear what their female friends go through on a daily basis.

I don’t think they are shocked. I think they know what women go through, but they close their eyes and block their ears from hearing about it all of the time, because they don’t want to know. They don’t care enough to know. They think it’s too hard, too painful, they are just ‘one man’, ‘what can they do?’ But the thing is, women cannot escape this. Women cannot close their eyes and ignore it the way men do. We live it every fucking day over and over and over and over…

So I don’t want to hear from men how they are so ‘shocked’ about all of this, including how many women in their social circle who post #MeToo. Enough is enough. Stop virtue signalling to the women around you and actually do something. If you care about women, fucking. do. something.

I don’t like to talk about personal stuff but I feel like I have to.

5 month ago my mom had a  brain haemorrhage. One second she was there, the next she was slowly fading in the hospital. She passed away one week later, on February 1st. I can’t say what was worse - watching my father sobbing like a child, being in total mess after the woman he’s spent most of his life died and knowing I can’t break because someone had to stay sane or ironing her dress she was going to wear in the coffin and trying not to spread snot all over it because I was crying so hard – basically, two worst weeks in my fucking life. But why I’m wasting your time writing it?

There were three things that kept me sane. My best friend, who has spent a lot of time chatting with me on facebook about the dumbest shit you can imagine, to keep my mind away from the fact the last time I spoke to my mother, I was pissed off. The second was my salty Teen Wolf squad here on tumblr. The third was Karamel. Why? Because these two space adorable aliens were my happy place. Watching them made me a little less depressed. They allowed me to keep my fucking brain from going to places I really didn’t want to go.

So, I went to the Karamel tag, to grieve in peace, but instead I have learnt that I am a Trump supporter, Kremlin, abusive relationship cheerleader, racist, homophobe, slave owner apologist and blah, blah, blah, the list is going, basically I have learnt all the things I wanted during being in a shithole *sarcasm* Thank you, Supercorp/Lena fandom, because most of the shit was (and still is) sent there by you, seriously thank you. I’ll probably remember it to pathetic end of my life. But, why I’m writing this?

Because dear Supercorp fandom, you don’t give a shit. No, sorry, you give a lot of shit (basically, throwing that shit at fan), blowing it out from proportion, when you are involved. Basically, when your feelings are hurt when the cast sing a song about two women being friends, even if the main actress said you can ship whatever you want few minutes earlier, even if the cast was bullied for months by your fandom with the grosses shit you can imagine. That’s it. That’s the cast’s crime. A joke.

And you know, I get why this joke could hurt you. Basically, jokes do shit like that to people, because we are all different, we have different experiences, so different things trigger us – that’s normal. The problem is, some jokes are just jokes. Or jokes that were meant to make you realize that some things won’t happen and there is no queerbaiting. I know, truth can hurt and you want to express that to the world. The problem is, you don’t act like hurt people but like a bunch of bloodthirsty haters ready to eat anyone who doesn’t agree with you.

And I know, there are nice supercorp shippers who just sit and like the stuff and have nothing in common with the nasty minority. But you know the problem, nice supercorp shippers? We all have learnt from the history that usually the most awful things were done by minorities, while the majority sat silently and didn’t move a finger.

Personally, I don’t care about the hate I’m getting. I survived that two weeks, because after all I am emotionally strong and I’m old enough to deal with my shit. But other people are not me. I remember that 13 year old girl who came here, to her first fandom, liking Karamel and Mon. And how Supercorp shippers treated her like shit. Her feelings didn’t matter because she liked Karamel? How many Karamel shippers who are members of lgbt community have to repeat they are not straight or homophobes? How many poc Karamel people have to repeat they are not racists? How many people who experienced abusive relationships have to repeat they don’t think Karamel is abusive? How long you are going to ignore the FACT we are normal people? Our voices seriously don’t matter because we ship something else? We are not true survivors, lgbt members, teenage kids because we like different ship? Because, you don’t care?

And you know the worst part? We don’t owe you explanation why we ship, why a ship makes us happy, why a ship helps us dealing with shit. We don’t owe you an explanation of who we are. I don’t owe you a description on my blog saying that I am asexual, white Polish, recently losing my mother and my life being a fucking mess. No one does. You know why? Because my fucked up life doesn’t make my ship better than other ships. My fucked up life doesn’t justify me being a freaking online abuser. My fucked up life doesn’t give me a right to be disgusting and to throw gross shit at the cast that did something I didn’t like only because it hurt my feelings. 

Especially when the cast is treated for months like YOUR property.

Rant over.

Theory Time!!

Sooooo I caught sight of these screenshots from RoE’s Finale on Facebook. (You see this if Leo takes the MC to the Scottish castle for their honeymoon)

On the outset, this looked more like a historical parallel of Leo’s own story. A royal in love, a couple meant for each other, ready to fight their laws and land and people to love one another. It made sense that we’d get a last nod to Leo’s royal origins, while learning more about Cordonia’s history.

But as with anything related to TRR or Cordonia, nothing is ever that simple 😂

tgd characters + social media:

-shao has all his accounts on private but his snapchat is thirst trap after thirst trap and parkour. his ig is for shoes and the occassional picture of the get down brothers. he always subtweets mylene even tho she blocked him ages ago. hes also flash’s party promoter, and is the first person to tweet about some funny (read: cute) thing zeke did. he also posts music recs once a month (either trap or 90s rap, some a$ap rocky too). hes got the les inferno twitter and ig #blockt

-mylene has the most followers out of anyone. her snapchat story is watched by dozens and is mostly her doing cute things around manhattan with yolanda and regina. her pictures on ig always look super professional (zeke took em lol) and she does the occasional look book. she has a youtube where she posts videos of her singing, and actually got a couple songs of hers on itunes. shes the biggest beyonce stan and has gotten a few of her tweets favorited by her. she also tweets advice and useful tips, but is always threatening to block people. subtweets about zeke’s buffoonery on a daily basis.

-yolanda is a big youtuber who mostly vlogs and does reviews, but will sometimes post a sketch video or two a month. her snaps are mostly of her brothers doing geeky shit and her cackling in the background. her vlogs are super personal without seeming super personal, and they’re funny as hell. wokest of the crew cause she calls out zeke’s lowkey hotepery. she rarely posts to ig because she feels like all her pictures are trash when they’re not, but when she does post she gets tons of likes.

-regina is p big on twitter. her stories and threads get thousands of retweets a day and she’s constantly getting sponsored. huge meme lord, and exposes uglies on a daily basis. her ig is all pictures of her and yolanda cause They Gay™. her snaps are wild but she actually doesn’t use sc that much compared to the others. she has a tumblr and its mostly new wave memes and aesthetic posts, but she’ll sneak in something really personal but feel guilty about it for some reason.

-boo’s name on everything is “booboothefool” and he mostly posts dancing videos on instagram. he’ll sometimes post a singing video, which surprises everyone every single time. he makes youtube poops even tho its 2016, and is mostly subscribed to prank channels. he is the third biggest meme lord, and probably lowkey a troll, but a chaotic good one.

-dizzee is an art hoe and only really uses ig, twitter, and sometimes tumblr but its rare. he mostly just posts pictures of his graffiti and he never shows his face in the pictures that are actually of him. he uses really funky filters too. his tweets are somehow more fake deep than zekes, and he calls everything An Experience™. probably obsessed with kanye west and is always live blogging his trash fashion show. he also posts a lot of music recs, but they’re mostly stuff from the 70s and 80s.

-idk who thor is but! he’s super lowkey about everything and only uses facebook to post his graffiti art and insightful quotes. comments on all of pakoussa’s posts and secretly keeps an eye on dizzee’s ig.

-that rich white punk girl stays in zeke’s dms, runs a black and white blog that’s mostly AHS: murder house gifs, posts gore on every account she has, tweets “#whitegirlsevolving” and snapchats herself twirling a butcher knife around her tiddies

anonymous asked:

I'm suddenly terrified of buying anything anywhere! How do I know if I buy something online if I'm buying someone's stolen art. How would you suggest? All I know is google image check . Is that enough do you think, as someone who wants to buy something, to have done precautions? (Apologies for English :))

Hi anon ^^

First, don’t apologize for your English. Mine is well..some sort of strange Frenglish, so you see, no problem! ^^

I’m suddenly terrified of buying anything anywhere! How do I know if I buy something online if I’m buying someone’s stolen art. 

The best way is using Google Image Reverse Rearch, locating the artist’s page and see if they have a shop. If they don’t, don’t hesitate to to contact them and to ask them “Hey, sorry to bother you, I saw this item at this one shop and I wanted to know if it was your shop or if you gave the permission for your art to be sold there. Thanks”. When in doubt, it’s the best thing to do!

Otherwise:

- Don’t buy from Tee Chip (and from their Facebook sponsored pages), you can be sure that a lot of their items are made out of stolen artworks. Same for Ebay, particularly big anime shops. It’s incredible the number of Yuri!!! on Ice items you can find on eBay that have been made out of stolen designs. I saw pillows, mugs, phone cases that were made out of artworks found on Pixiv and Tumblr. Pffff.

- Don’t buy from a seller that has artworks that have different styles. It’s a bit strange. I mean, when you look at my shop, you can be sure that it’s the same person who drew everything, you have a coherence. When you have a lack of coherence in a shop, it’s not a good sign.

I hope I was able to help you! Thanks a lot for your message ^^

I recently saw a post, reblogged by this blog I follow that calls out racism, etc. Basically someone said Tarjei's lips were perfect on Twitter, including a picture. People on tumblr reacted by making fun of them and I got that typical making-fun-of-white-guy vibe from it. Usually I don't really care but? ? Tarjei doesn't deserve that? He's just a TEEN who has a role that's really important to LGBT+ people and people w mental illness and then all these people who don't even know of him do this?

Yeah, when skam season 1 started gaining recognition, in the very beginning was the peak time. I remember it. The “"official”“ skam Facebook group was made with maybe 4000 members, and many of the actors, Marlon, Ulrikke, Josefine, Tarjei and Ina atleast were in it, and fans would post things and the actors would post things, it was super cool because it was so chill? Like the actors were normal people. Then the group started to grow. A lot of people began to obsess over characters (Chris P especially) and began pointing out flaws in the characters, like Jonas’ eyebrows and Isaks lips and how Chris P showed his gums as he smiled. It didn’t take long until all the actors left the group. It was super sad!
I’m so against criticising the looks of characters and ESPECIALLY actors. Of course I’m not perfect, I’ve made fun of Kylo Rens hair and Benedict Cumberbatches face and all of William but SKAM has really made me realise that actors are human. It’s completely okay to hate a fictional character, it’s completely okay to not find actors attractive, but it’s not okay to call actors ugly and make fun of them, not if you don’t like the character they play, not for any reason at all. To everyone: please think before you post! Don’t be rude and mean towards celebrities just because you view them more as objects than actual people…

I was going through my old facebook photos and found this from Jump Festa 2011. I was young, still straightening my hair, and Bleach was still a thing people enjoyed.

Flash forward 6 years and here we are. Bleach is dead. Ichigo has been castrated and is balding. Renji knocked up his bestfriend and had to marry her. Nothing’s wrong with Byakuya, though. Aside from having Renji as brother in law, he made it out alive.

Appreciation post for my professor

- She absolutely loves her job and regularly shows her excitement on facebook, calling it best job ever

- this one time she intives us to her apartment to bake Norwegian cakes for the 17th of May. She had a Kaizers Orchestra playlist on, ordered pizza, took a picture of us eating it on the floor and sent it to her husband excited that she has hippies in her apartment

- password to one of her courses online was Nick Cave’s new album title

- classes with her are the best thing ever

- seriously, i was super stressed about my first simultanous translation and she made me feel less anxious

- i am not sure if it’s true ( @aprillka pls confirm) but i think she took a smol figurine of George Bush from our other professor’s office and started a facebook fanpage of him (figurine, not prof). I think she deleted it now tho

- she also owns a figurine of Tommy Wiseau

- i will never forget what a saksbehandler is because for some reason she would explain it every other class our first semester. you can wake me up at 2 am and ask me and i may forget my name but i will remember that saksbehandler is urzędnik odpowiedzialny za sprawę.

- puts up with all of us, even when we are annoying. she is nice to everyone and FAIR. i don’t think she ever yelled at us or behaved in a rude way

- in her previous job when she couldn’t understand the person on the phone because of some weird Norwegian dialect they spoke, she would pretend the phone connection broke and mail them - this is so relatable and calmed me down because it means that others have no idea what they do as well

- shares anecdotes and personal stories and they are funny

- I AM ACTUALLY GAINING EXPERIENCE FOR A POSSIBLE FUTURE JOB ON HER CLASSES

- she would skip controversial discussion topics suggested by our books because she didn’t want us to fight, but to LEARN HOW TO SPEAK NORWEGIAN

- i am doing my work experience with her and I SUCK because i take so much time to finish everything and she always replies super fast and gives me great feedback and is affirmative and i feel so much better and want to improve

- after david bowie died i had to go to her office for some oral exam and there was a note that said: “Every student willing to have an appointment with [her name] on days [date] is obliged to say something nice about David Bowie” both in Polish and Norwegian. i have a picture of it somewhere

- my friend posted on facebook that he will spend next weeks watching Twin Peaks and she commented “you have an exam in three weeks. just sayin’.” if any other prof did it, it would be cringy, but not her.

- she is pretty

So I have seen all the clips that I have missed now and not going to go into it to much but will say few things. And I know some of these might be unpopular so yeah. Just a heads up with that.

  • I still think it was wrong for Even and Sana to lie to Isak about when they met. Yes, it should be Even who tells Isak about his past and not Sana, so she does has a point with that about Isak going to her for information. But lying is the wrong thing to do and I will never be happy with how this is written.
  • And I still think Even should have told Isak what happened in Bakka. I don’t think Even should tell everything about his past. But I think if something major has happened in the past. It is good to let your loved ones know about it so they don’t hear it from someon else.
  • That Sana only offered to help Isak just to try to accesses to his facebook to get back at Sara made me sad. I thought she was better then that. And I became even more sad when she went through with it after Isak telling her she is a good person. She clearly doesn’t think that he will also be in trouble when this comes out.
  • It was so nice to see Isak and Even in their apartment. I loved watching them being so comfortable with each other and everything. I miss seeing them and I just want more of them already.
  • Even though this is a Isak & Even blog, I need to say that the clip today made me angry because of the way Elias said to Sana about Isak. Made it sound like he thinks it is okay to hit someone if they are a stranger to him and his family. Also not happy with that Yousef forced Sana to play basketball with him even if it was clear she didn’t want to in the first place.
It’s Been Your Username

This is what happened right before the new video was uploaded ok I don’t make this shit up

He had multiple tabs open; YouTube, Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook. His hand rested on the mouse as he clicked on each tab over and over. YouTube, Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook. YouTube, Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook. 

“Did you do it?” he heard a voice coming from behind him.

“I’m scared.” he spoke quietly. “I don’t know if I’m ready.”

“You’re the one that said it’s not a big deal.”

“But it is a big deal, Phil.” he said as he turned around to face him. “This has been my life for the last 7 years. It’s been my branding. It’s been who I am.”

“No, it’s been your username.” Phil said. “It doesn’t change all the creative videos you’ve made or the incredible things you’ve accomplished or the amazing person you’ve become.”

“I thought you were the amazing one.” he said with a smirk.

“I am.” Phil smiled smugly. “And I’m sticking with it.” he continued. “But it’s time you move on. I know how badly you want to. You’ve grown up, and that’s okay. This is just another step toward embracing who you are. It’s just a couple of clicks away.”

He looked at Phil with wide eyes before turning back around to face the screen. He took a deep breath before clicking Save on each updated profile.

Phil walked over and wrapped his arms around him from behind. “I’m so proud of you, Daniel.”

i hope i'm not being weird messaging you about this but like my father is dying. he has end stage ms and can't walk anymore and his brain will never be at the level it once was (he now has dementia) its been One Of Those Nights and i was on his facebook and watching old videos. they made me cry really hard but then i remembered it was from the time he emotionally abused my family. why am i missing times that weren't even that great? why am i still so bitter with this when my own father is dying

family ties by their very nature are extremely complicated and our emotions toward them aren’t always rational. the thing that makes family abuse so hard to wrestle with is that most of the time you do have a lot of good memories of them alongside memories of abuse. and you feel guilty either way when trying to understand how you feel about them. it’s ok to have complicated feelings about your dad, and even to care about him in some sense without denying the fact that he was abusive. most of all, don’t blame yourself. let yourself heal or experience emotion in whatever way makes sense to you. it’s not your fault for feeling how you do.

Making it Public

Pairing: Jensen x daughter!Reader, Danneel x Jensen, JJ
Word count: 736

Part 12 of Letters From the Dead


Everyone had finished eating, and still, no one told you what this was about. “So, there’s a reason for us bringing you out without the munchkins.” Jensen started. Danneel reached into her bag and pulled out some papers, handing them to you.

“What’s this?” You asked, taking them.

Your eyes started reading over the words on the paper as Jensen spoke. “I, well, we- would like you to legally be part of the family. An Ackles.” You could hear the grin on his face.

Licking your lips, you nodded slightly. “You don’t have to answer right this second.” Dan told you, knowing this came out of nowhere. “We just wanted to do something nice when we asked.”

“And, there’s one more thing.” He told you, Gen and Jared just there as support. Your eyes met his. “If it’s okay with you, I’d like Dan to adopt you.” Your eyebrows went up.


They knew this wasn’t to be taken lightly, and Jensen admitted if you agreed too fast, he’d have worried that you were saying yes to make them happy. You thinking about it meant this was what you wanted. It had been a few days, and you hadn’t mentioned it to anyone- not even Hayley. You wanted time to process everything first, and to at least attempt to sort your feelings on the matters. These were life changing decisions!

The papers sat on your desk, next to your laptop, not that it would have left your mind if they weren’t there. Seeing Haley online, you decided to talk to them to sort your thoughts. School was coming up, and fast.

Taking a deep breath, you logged off, grabbed the papers, and made your way downstairs. It was just about time for lunch, anyways, which your stomach was letting that be known. Your insides were going insane, then you still had to make the post! Which, of course, would blow up.

As you moved down the stairs, you decided that you’d make that post public, as it would be public anyway. You wanted to have the world know things from your point, not just what was posted on blogs, fansites, and all that other stuff. Your world was about to get a whole lot more interesting.

Again.

Keep reading

i do think mari's been lazy with the social media this season. i'm disappointed, it's part of what makes the show so great & what makes people so invested, & now it feels like the skam team went 'it's the last season and we have a huge audience, so w/e.' it's also a great way to update us on characters (like jonas and mahdi) not really a part of sana's story w/o taking away from her time. why wasn't everyone commenting on that evak pic? why wouldn't isak comment on noora's pic of linn? like??

hey you! yeah, I feel the same way, just a little bit, I have to admit. the social media stuff on skam has always been tricky, though, what with characters only creating Instagrams when it was their ‘turn’ to do so – Sana and Noora only got Instagram accounts in season two, for example – and other characters – Mahdi, Eskild – only getting a locked account with barely any activity at all. not to mention characters going from posting every other day during one season to suddenly barely posting anything at all, when they were less prominent in the series. take Isak for example, who used to be super active on Instagram during season one, both with posting pictures and with commenting. he all but disappeared during season two, with an amazing three picture updates throughout the entire season, one of which was randomly posted a week before the season even started. same goes for Eva, who used to be very active throughout both season one and two, only to take an unrealistic break from social media while season three was happening, haha! 

so it’s not as if it’s always been smooth, realistic sailing for the skam social media updates and you can imagine why too! when it was just six Instagram accounts to keep track of, it’s much easier to kind of have fun with it, I think. with so many more characters added to the mix now, on top of Facebook accounts and even a Youtube channel, you can imagine just how stressful it can sometimes get. Mari Magnus has admitted to making mistakes with the social media throughout all of the seasons too, which makes me think the social media updates aren’t all as carefully planned out as we might think but also, often, spur of the moment type things!

there does seem to be something slightly off this season, though. small mistakes keep being made – Noora’s Facebook profile picture is different, depending on if Sana gets chat messages from her in a clip or in a text update, Yousef’s Facebook account being left on public for all of us to see, giving away an absolutely major plotline, Mari forgetting to photoshop her own picture out of the update not once but twice now, Vilde not following Magnus for an entire week after the show had started again, Isak not following Sana. and we’re only on week four, ha! not to mention that some of the characters seem to live in a vacuum, which feels unrealistic. like, you’re trying to tell me that Even and Isak post a risky after sex selfie and not one single person in their circle except for Sana has something to say about it? not Jonas? not Eva? not Eskild? not to mention that none of the boys react to Magnus’s social media updates? or anyone at all to Noora’s Linn update?

and I don’t really mind it, really. there’s enough other stuff happening to keep us occupied. but at the same time it does feel like a shame! it’s the last season, I think it’s not strange that we all want as much interaction between the characters as possible before saying goodbye and social media likes and comments seem like the perfect way to do that! I’m at a point now where I’m like – Mari, babe, just give it to me! I’ll make Mahdi comment something nice, and make sure everyone is following the right people, hahaha.

The origin of my atheism

I’ve been trying to figure out when, exactly, the seed of doubts started. I know I was searching for the real truth from about age 18 to age 28. I read the Bible and had many questions my youth pastor couldn’t answer which led me to ask other bible scholars these questions and listening to their answers. The first thing that struck me was the concept of free will. I couldn’t find any evidence in the Bible describing what was defined as free will. That led me to reading books by authors who wrote about our absence of free will. My pastor would talk about our freedom in Christ but the Bible called us elect and would consistently show me that we have no choice.

Another thing that bothered me was God’s ability of being tricked. You see numerous examples in Genesis and throughout the Old Testament. If god is all powerful, how can he be fooled? My rationalization of this was God wasn’t tricked. He was allowing things to happen because he planned everything. Making us believe we are in control over our lives.

I avoided behavior that I knew were against the Bible. When I got older, I hired a gay man to work in my comic book store, (I had my justifications owning the store) and realized he wasn’t a sex crazy pervert. I brought this up with my pastor and he reminded me of the evils of “gay culture” and how my employees presence would end my marriage and slowly corrupt my “sexual appetite”. I never fired him, but he only worked for me a few months before he moved away.

I suffer from anxiety and depression. I’m type two bipolar. I knew some of that at the time. When I turned 30, I began drinking alcohol. It calmed me. It made me happy. Yes. I’ve had bad times drinking but it was a way to make me feel normal. I’d say from 30 to 38, I wasn’t as hardcore a Christian as I was in my 20s. I justified drinking and rarely attended church due to guilt.

I decided to go to college in 2010. My English Comp 1 instructor was openly atheist and gay. At this point I had all of the judgement of my hardcore beliefs but no reason to have them. It’s something I still struggle with at times. He really made me think about what I read in a way I never had.

Another instructor was an amazing world civ teacher. She was a believer but she would show the class the story of Noah and in the same sentence, talk about similar stories written long before the book of genesis. She also made me think about evolution. How we are still evolving. Because of this, I decided to do my own research. I talked to my wife about things I was learning. It was at this point, I started reading the Bible more and praying more. I kept asking God to help me prove he was real. That he was there. No answer.

It took about a year and a family emergency to ultimately come to the decision that everything I ever believed was wrong. Religion is a hoax. The Christian God and Jesus were made up. At some point, I changed my religious status to atheist. I lost 13 “friends” on Facebook. Many were friends I knew from the various churches I had attended. The rest were those I considered close. There were two who kept me as a friend but I had to unfriend them. One was a militant catholic who challenged anything I said because my opinions are invalid due to my non belief, and I never talk religion on my page, it was mostly political things. The other was the person who originally “brought me to the lord”. He has become a pathetic, predatory, sadistic sociopath over the years. He puts on a persona of moral Christian while having a secret life preying on women who are intellectually weak and vulnerable. He would make passive pokes at me and message me about his concerns. I had to unfriend him because he claimed my son would commit suicide because atheists have no morals or joy.

I’ve been atheist for over three years now. I’ve been happier than ever. I care about people more than ever. I want to show people I’m not an evil person. If I’m asked if I’m a believer, I’ll say no. I’m not afraid to say it. However, I’m not an activist and I’m not one to be public about my non belief. When people find out they’re always shocked. Hopefully I can change the preconceived notions about atheism for someone.
