the most jarring thing my dad has ever told me is that we’re the new 60’s

when i asked him what he meant he said that he remembered being a kid in the 60’s, he remembered the long hair and the sex and the push against an older, less tolerant generation for freedom. he was born in 1955 so he wasn’t intimately involved in the progressiveness of it but he said he remembered always understanding the younger generation because they spoke to children like him, children that were being raised in restrictive households that were more prone to rebellion. flash forward to our generation and he’s floored, he’s shocked and a little bit scared because he sees the same passion in us, the same struggle and desire for change but this time he’s the older generation. we’re the new 60’s and he’s the establishment we’re trying to change. and it just strikes me how circular this world is, and how every once in a while a certain generation comes around with their radical, progressive agenda. and one day we’re going to wake up in the future and find ourselves face-to-face with a younger, more progressive generation and we’re going to have to decide if we’re still with them or if we’re the new establishment they’re fighting against

The Signs As Jack Handey Quotes
  • Aries: "After I die, wherever my spirit goes, I'm going to try to get back and visit my skeleton at least once a year, because, "Hey, old buddy, how's it going?""
  • Taurus: “The tiger can't change his spots. No, wait, he did! Good for him!”
  • Gemini: “Sometimes I wonder if I'm patriotic enough. Yes, I want to kill people, but on both sides.”

  • Libra: “I think a good novel would be where a bunch of men on a ship are looking for a whale. They look and look, but you know what? They never find him. And you know why they never find him?

I may be reading too much into the movie, but I felt like Moana had a strong environmental message and the characters represented, in broad terms, the challenges our society is facing.

[Spoilers for those who haven’t seen the movie]

Maui is the old generation. He stole the heart of Te Fiti (mother earth), thinking humans could harness, control and benefit from its power. This is a pretty straightforward comparison to what happened during the industrial revolution, and is still happening now: humans trying to dominate nature, using it for their benefit without caring about consequences (extinction). 

Just like our natural world, once deprived of its heart, Te Fiti crumbles down and turns into a rage-filled lava monster. This is climate change, and all the disasters that are happening over the world because of it.

The wave of destruction slowly but surely reaches every island in the ocean, threatening to take all living things with it.

Moana (the young generation) is chosen to fix the damage Maui did (even if he did it with good intentions) and restore the heart to prevent the death of her people. This means, for us, finding technologies that will enable us to live while limiting our impact on the environment.

Successful in their mission, Moana and Maui make peace with Te Fiti and apoligize for the mistake that was made and the suffering it caused. Moana goes on to guide her people in a new era of exploration and peace with the natural world.

To everyone freaking out about Trump winning the election.

I know a lot of people are very worried and upset about Trump winning the election. However, just because Trump is president, DOESN’T mean everything is going to hell. This is because Donald Trump isn’t in complete control. There are three political parties in America and in order to change something, ALL three have to agree on it. And the speaker of the parties, Paul Ryan, doesn’t like Trump and doesn’t support him. So he’s not going to agree to many of Trumps ideas. Will there still be changes? Yes. Could some be bad? Yes. But just cause Trump won, doesn’t mean the world is ending. So please. Try not to panic. Don’t freak out. It’ll be okay.

How long has it been?” he asks, his voice was so much deeper than when I last spoke to him. “Three and a half years” I answer. It feels strange talking to him after all those years, in a grocery shop out of all places. “So, how are you doing?” he looks at me, but doesn’t look me in the eyes, trying to make a conversation. I shrugg “Pretty good, I guess. You?” Straightening his back he replies “Nothing has really changed, I just got a few years older” Shaking my head I stare at my worn converse “You really should stop doing it” His eyes meet mine, like clear blue skies with little green and golden stars in them, confusment is clouding them. “Do what? ” My heart starts beating faster, I don’t want to explain everything to him, but I guess I have to. “Playing all those girls, making them feel like they are your world, only for them to discover that you have millions of other worlds beside them…” He looks down “Perhaps, every girl I date knows my reputation though” I can’t do anything else than to stare at his black t-shirt and nod my head in agreement with him.
“Are you still the good girl?” he asks, a small grin on his face, looking down at me. “Not really, you ruined that part a bit for me” I reply. My heart sinks as I see his face fall and the green and golden fireworks in his eyes die. “It’s okay though” I say, trying to make him feel a bit better. “I knew what I was signing up for, just ignored the warning signs. I’ve loved again you know…”
He slowly turns his head towards me again “Did it work?” I smile sadly “It didn’t, but that was my fault, I walked away. So much for the good girl”
“I’m sorry” is his reaction while his eyes watch the lights at the ceiling. “Don’t be, I found someone else. He treats me right”
“He should” I raise my eyebrows at that sentence. “No really he should, you’re worth someone who treats you good. I cared, you know.. ” is his explaination.
Again a sad smile plays around my lips “And I mistoke caring for loving” he nods.
“You were my first real best friend
You were my first crush
My first heart break”
I see him wanting to react
“But you also were my first lesson in love, and it was the best lesson I ever had

The Simplest Things (Got7,Jb) Pt.2

Group & Member : Got7′s JB

Genre: Angst, Fluff, Tragedy, Romance, Smut/Eventual, Interracial

Series

Pairings: Jb & OC (You can imagine your name in there, too. if you wish.)

Summary: Single father, Jaebum learns to love again while struggling to raise his 4 year old son.  

AN: Older!Got7 (By like, 10 years) A Skip over things before Jb changes his mind about the dating world.

Parts: Prologue-1-2

The first year without Na-Young.

The nanny wasn’t late. She just wasn’t there. JB had taken a hiatus for his mental health after Na-young died. He moved into a smaller, yet spacy apartment after her. Too many memories of her lingered through those halls.  So, it was just him and Jaehwa for a while. Whenever the boys would come back he would leave the bay with the nanny and go off to dance practice. But this was his life now. He was trying to write down music while Jaehwa was sleeping. But the child would get up and first came the small whimper pf being alone. Then his voice would ring out and carry around the whole house.

Jaebum sat down. His whole-body tense as he waited and listened for Jaehwa again. After a few seconds and no nose Jb picked up his pencil and began to write. But when he heard a sharp intake of breath he paused and groaned silently to himself. Of course, Jaehwa wouldn’t stay down for long.

Jb raced to the baby’s room before the cried could get louder and looked down at the spitten image of him looked up.

‘’You just won’t let me win this today, huh?’’

Jaehwa responded by smiling up at him and reaching out towards his father.

JB relented and lifted the baby out of his crib. ‘’I’m just going to have to entertain you for a while, aren’t I?’’ He asked mainly himself. The baby wasn’t hungry. He had eaten just before he had been put down about 45 minutes ago.

Jb sighed and sat down in his large living room. He sat with Jaehwa pressed against his chest poor thing sniffled and started to close his eyes. This had been a constant thing since Na-young had died. Jaehwa was quicker to throw tantrums and refused to sleep by himself. It was likewise with Jb. He had barely slept at all. SO he spent a lot of nights overworking and caring for his son.

‘’I miss your mom.’’ He muttered into the baby’s hair and sighed to himself.

three years after Na-young

‘’I’m not doing this shit again.’’ Jb closed the car door after strapping Jaehwa in. it had taken him everything to not slam it. He wouldn’t risk waking his peacefully sleeping son.

‘’Well… What Happened?’’ Jackson was leaning up against the back of the car. He shoved his hands in his pockets and looked down at the ground before looking up at his elder. This was about the 8th date he and Jinyoung had set up for their leader. And they had all failed. He at least thought there was hope with Jei. But obviously not.

Now, don’t get him wrong. Jackson cried harder than any of the others at Na-young’s funeral. Jb had brought home someone class, beautiful and smart. Jackson considered her the closest he’d ever been to a noona. This woman who made his leader happy. He loved her, too. Like an older sister, of course. But she would have wanted him to not necessarily get over it. But find the will to be happy again.  

‘’I don’t know man. Maybe I don’t need to move on. It can just be me and Jaehwa. And maybe I’ll get a dog. I’ve always wanted a dog.’’ He had never been able to get one because his poor wife was allergic. So he sufficed because either way it went. He was happiest with her.

‘’Don’t say that again. I’m tired of hearing you say that.’’ Jackson started, but he was quickly cut off by the other Jb shrugged.

‘’Maybe.. let me date on my own time? No more dates, man. I can’t do it. We’ve got a few shows coming up and I’ve got to get Jaehwa situated in three weeks. I can’t have any dating scandals in the news, or any scandals that say I’m neglecting my son… Again.’’ He said lowly. The next scandal he would probably have to deal with? Remember that time usually Calm, Jaebum punched the reporter in the face?

 

‘’I’m going to get him home. And see if I can get a few hours of sleep in before he becomes active again. Thanks again for watching him, again.’’ Jackson pat him on the back and watched as he got in the car and drove off, bound for the comfort of his home. Jackson kicked the rubble in his driveway before stalking up to the front door. When Jaebum got depressed, everyone felt it. The stoic leader would never admit it because he wanted to stay strong, of course. He wanted to stay strong for his friends and tiny son who couldn’t even comprehend the meaning of depression.

Yeah, everyone missed Na-young. So of course, Jackson hoped secretly that another sliver of happiness would quickly come Jb’s way.

Comfortably Numb

a/n; so, during a sudden bust of inspiration and motivation (mainly from me and @phoenixejean talking about alex and the war) my fingers slipped and i wrote six pages of angst. it strays from canon, so just go with it! enjoy!

warnings; graphic depictions of violence, ptsd

“Even in times of trauma, we try to maintain a sense of normality until we no longer can. That, my friends, is called surviving. Not healing. We never become whole again … we are survivors. If you are here today… you are a survivor. But those of us who have made it through hell and are still standing? We bare a different name: warriors.” -Lori Goodwin

Them Seeing Her in Christmas Lingerie: NCT U

| B.A.P || MONSTA X |

TaeIl:

Would quietly come into the bedroom as he didn’t know you were in there and see you change. As quietly as he had come he would turn around and leave the room with a poker-face, trying to delete the sight out of his mind.


TaeYong:

A shy little baby until, “But when are they going to be off?” comes out of his mouth.


DoYoung:

Would appreciate your beauty while you were dancing around the house to Christmas songs without a care in the world.


Ten:

Just a shy baby, unlike TaeYong. Would get so flustered that would hide his face behind his hands.


JaeHyun:

Would be speechless as it was very unusual of you to just randomly come up to him and ask you how did the lingerie looked on your body. Added to that it was the cutest Christmas lingerie he’d ever seen.


Mark:

He would lose his shit, flip out and then abandon the room as fast as lightning. He was so embarrassed he could barely speak so when the other members asked him what was wrong he could only laugh at his own reaction.

Catching Fire

I’ve heard a lot about the longing gazes Mike directors towards Ginny, but I haven’t seen all that much about the moment when Ginny turns back to watch Mike and Rachel walk down the hallway and it is so important.

Seriously folks, these are the eyes of self-contained heartbreak.

Ginny is just as drawn to and enamored by Mike as he is to her.

While they may be at different stages of their lives/careers, they are both experiencing very similar situations and realities; trying to find their place in their changed worlds, define (or redefine)  themselves, dealing with their limitations, discovering meaning outside of baseball.

There are definite parallels or rhyming to their respective story lines.

Really, they’re cut from the same cloth and their similarities are especially apparent in regards to how they deal with attraction and feelings. I mean right after the hallway scene Ginny essentially uses Noah as a distraction exactly like Mike used Amelia in episode 102.

Ginny and Mike have learned to keep their deeper feelings close to their chests and to avoid exposing their vulnerable underbellies. They have lost or felt betrayed by almost everyone they were ever really close to.

This particular similarity may keep them apart initially, might make them go after people that present lower stakes and risks, and I can understand that some viewers were disappointed by the turn of events in the Pitch finale. I guess for myself, it actually kind of makes me hopeful though.

Ultimately, I think this scene showed us again, and in no uncertain terms, not only how similar the two are, but how mutual the attraction and connection is. At the end of the day, they are the only ones who can really understand and read each another with precision.

Like a plant turns ever towards the sun, Ginny Baker and Mike Lawson will ALWAYS be drawn back to one other. They just light each other up.

I made and posted this edit on my Instagram (@/thepuggylover101) yesterday, but I’ve been seeing more posts and decided to put it here.

Like many others, I’m worried about Jack. He’s been absent on social media for an abnormally long time, and I know he’s trying to have some time to himself after the whole situation, but I still worry.

Hopefully he knows just how much we love him and hopefully this shows him just how much we’ve changed his life for the better. It’s hard right now, but we as a community will get out of it. I know we will. Just give it time.

Sean, if you happen to read this, thank you. You mean the world to us and we want to show how much we care. Take as much time as you need, but know we, the community, are always here for you if you need anything at all. We love you so much.

s-noells  asked:

I know this ship basically never appears but I LOVE Alvis/Dunban as a ship. Shipping might be the wrong word, but I like the idea of them interacting.

I like to say that Dunban secretly has beef with Alvis for wooing Shulk when Dunban REALLY wants him to be with Fiora, but that’s just for giggles. 

I think Dunban and Alvis only directly interacted once? After the “incident”… and both he and Reyn thought he was really killing the mood. Based on that, I think their opposing ideas on how the world works would be a topic of discussion constantly if they’d travelled together. Dunban has a very strong will to survive while Alvis is has very strict beliefs about the passage of fate. Perhaps Dunban would try to change Alvis’ mind about the strength of homs.

Writing Prompts

1) The train station was crowded and alive with chatter, an elderly women sells flowers to one side, a man on the phone knocks into a child, a woman in a hurry’s purse is almost stolen. So much is happening that no one notices the teenage boy and girl desperately trying to find the bomb. 

2) Hope was ever fleeting as they ran from the gunfire, but something burned in their chests, hot and fiery. It would carry them forwards. 

3) “My love you will find it doesn’t take a lot to change the world. All you have to do is try.” 

4) He couldn’t make himself go back, every step further away felt right. So he just kept going, until he lost track of how far he’d gone. 

5) “Baby you listen to me and you don’t ever forget what I’m saying, you hear me? The world isn’t a pretty place, live every day trying to change that. Don’t forget you are stronger than anyone will ever give you credit for. When you fall in love you will get your heartbroken, by them or by yourself. When you’re ready to fall again, or maybe you’ll never fall out, love fiercely and wildly, love like you have never been hurt but don’t forget what it feels like. You’re gonna make things as easy for daddy as you can, because he’s gonna be hurting to. And I know you’re going to hate me for leaving but honey always know I had to, this is for you. Everything I do is for you. Tell daddy I love him and don’t forget that I love you. Goodbye.” She slipped the worn note back into her pocket. Sixteen years ago her mother disappeared, and it was time for some answers. 

6) “Welcome home.” “You call it “home” like it means something.” 

7) The space between his fingertips fit hers perfectly, she couldn’t help be note as he slipped her hand into his. There was something truly chaotic about falling in love, but the whirlwind was as pretty as a sunset. 

8) He picked up the vase gently, and swiftly, without a moment to think or regret, threw it against a wall. The anger of the past few days bubbled up inside him, he picked up a jagged piece and dug it into the wall and wrote all the things bleeding from his aching heart. He tossed the contents of a basket across the room, and flipped a table without thought of consequence. 

9) “If you’re going to rebel … wear a helmet” “You’re not going to tell me not to do it?” “Would you listen to me?” “Well … no.” “Then no.” 

10) With a deep breath she plunged her hand into the black water, the surface glimmered with her reflection. She fished around until she found the pearl, as she was pulling her hand up a hand wrapped around her from behind her and pulled her away. 

Shiro isn’t quite use to sleeping with people (not sex, actual sleeping in the same bed) and when he starts spooning with Allura she ends up all tangled with him. Hair everywhere, hands in weird places, legs tangled and awkward, her face plastered to his chest. 

“How in the world can you do this all while sleeping?” He asks. 

Her face drops. “Are you saying you don’t like it?“ 

His heart sinks, he wasn’t trying to upset her. "No no no! I’m… just not use to this… but I love you. I’m sorry. Please don’t change." 

She’s put at ease and smiles "I love you too”

Conversation I just had:

Me: (about Solas) So basically he’s in the unfortunate position of actually having the power to evoke instantaneous change the world but then must shoulder the responsibility when those actions are inevitably flawed as he is not actually a god. So keeps trying to fix it, ultimately leading to more destruction.

He: (having never played the game) So, in essence, this dude is putting himself on a pedestal then hating himself when he can’t possibly live up to these insane standards, and so then putting himself on progressively higher pedestals trying to fix his increasingly huge failings rather than accepting his limitations.

Me: Yeah! Exactly!

He: So how is it that a character who is approximately 8,000 years old is still struggling with a 35-year-old’s problem?

Me: …. huh…. that is a very good question… 

He: Sounds to me like this guy needs a beer and a Rick and Morty episode to chill the fuck out.

Me: Oh my god… that’s exactly what he needs! That’s all he’s ever needed.

He: Dragon Age 4: “Listen, Solas, Nobody’s born on purpose. Nobody belongs anywhere. Everyone’s gonna die. Come watch T.V.”

Me: And then it’s just 90 hours of banging and enjoying life!

He: I’m calling Bioware right now.

heracleidae replied to your post “What do I do with the headcanon that Tony may be a complete ignorant…”

Tony Stark is the Gordon Ramsey of engineers. He’ll call out people with degrees who have a holier than thou attitude. But college students and children just trying to do their best and change the world he’ll inspire and gush about how proud he is of their efforts. GIVE ME ALL THE FIC.

what the fuck……. thats such a good description of tony………….thank you so much for blessing my life with this
