honestly who was paying attention

So there’s this guy I met at an LGBT gathering and he asked me my name. And when I said, “Today it’s Alex. I’m feeling in between,” he asked me how it is other days. He asked me how he would be able to tell.

I explained that usually Ally days were obvious because I’d wear makeup or something. Alec days were different, sort of more obviously guyish, but usually I felt like an Alex.

He saw me one day and called me Ally and I was like how did he know? Well I was wearing earrings and skinny jeans and eyeliner.

Today he saw me and called me Alex and I was like. Oh yeah. I am Alex today. And I looked at myself and realized that’s how I’d dressed, and he noted it.

Honestly I feel very thankful for someone like him who pays attention and works hard to validate others. It feels amazing that someone takes time to say hi and figure out what to call you that day.


I need to thank him next time I see him.

i’ve wanted to say for a long time, i’m so endeared by even’s little things?? like when he listens to someone, he really looks at them and really listens, and when he laughs, he does this thing like he moves a tiny bit closer, once again looking straight at a person and laughing with them, always including the ones he communicates with at the moment, always showing that he wants you to laugh with him, always showing that he listens and he’s there, not just present, it’s honestly amazing, even is the kind of person who pays attention

Ok please imagine the 10th generation  guardians in a college lecture led by Skull. So of course no one is paying attention

You have Tsuna, who honestly tried to pay attention but just ends up messing around on the internet

Then you have Hibari sleeping, like straight up knocked the fuck out and not even trying to hide it

Then you have gokudera who is all like “This class is just a gen-ed requirement, its not in my major” and he just fucking takes out his linear algebra textbook and a calculator and starts doing a shit ton of math

Then you have Yamamoto photoshopping his face onto a bunch of different ppl like. He photoshops his face onto a person who went to a Bernie Sanders rally and is all like “I can’t believe I saw Sanders.” and Tsuna has to remind him they’re in fucking japan

Then you have Lambo who’s playing games, and he yells in frustration whenever he messes up or dies

Mukuro and Chrome are just in the back chillin, watching movies on their laptops

AND RYHOHEI JUST STRAIGHT UP BRINGS A BOXING BAG AND HITS THE HELL OUT OF IT.

How would you describe jongtae's dynamic? Do you think taemin likes jonghyun as much as jonghyun likes him?

yes?? i absolutely do think taemin likes jonghyun as much as vice versa lmao. people who imply he doesnt just Honestly arent paying attention to the two of them. and then theres the antis who just want to find ways to prove friendships Aren’t Real and are just Forced Images They’re Putting On For The Camera. which w that logic u could say no two ppl in shinee are True Friends lmao. they have been friends for ten entire years. its not some thing sm tries to push as ive seen some ppl claim. 

the justification that a lot of people use when they say taemin doesnt like jonghyun seems to rest on the fact that jonghyun tends to be more physically demonstrative of his affection than taemin. hes rly touchy nd he clings on and in an industry focused on what goes on in front of the camera, ppl latch onto that.

but!! just bc someone isnt as physical with their affections doesnt mean that they dont like that person just as much?? there are many ways to show your affection and theyre all valid. heres taemin saying he worries about jonghyun. heres him saying that ‘its hard to hate jonghyun’ which holy shit is an affectionate thing to say if ive ever heard. taemin talking about jonghyuns poetry skills in a familiar way. taemin going Out of His Way to get a song from jonghyun. taemin talking about how often they talk and discuss music together. this is a familiar ass thing to say if ive ever heard lmao. here he is!! talking v in depth about his relationship w jjong!! saying that they’re very close!! i want to include this bc its super cute (and ppl constantly accuse jonghyun of being Annoyingly Touchy and heres taemin doing the same thing to be playful). heres a whole collection of taemin quotes about jonghyun.

not that it matters if he Wasnt, but there are definitely times when taemin is also physically affectionate?? ppl act like its just jonghyun pushing onto him all the time but its Literally not. taemin acts affectionate to jonghyun All The Time. these are just some examples. and some more. its almost like taemin also wants to be around jonghyun. amazing huh.

their dynamic is v interesting and complex, bc they share a lot of basic similarities (such as being introverted) but they also differ in a lot of ways. their means of emotional expression is one of them. they obviously feel super super comfortable with each other as theyve said they can spend the entire night up just talking to each other. there is a lot of mutual respect involved, enough to seek support nd help during each others solos. but also lots of affection!! and playfulness!! and the ability to have Serious Discussion about topics that are important to them, like music or talk about other aspects of their personal lives together. and heres jonghyun explaining it better than i can. like jonghyun says, its a Mutual Friendship where they stand on equal grounds, not one where jonghyun sees himself as a big brother who has to mentor taemin. 

Guys Got7 has a HUGE opportunity right now to show that kpop really is a big deal.

Billboard charts all music but honestly, they don’t pay much attention to anyone who isn’t from an English speaking country and it’s highly possible that they fudge numbers to keep what they don’t consider mainstream American music off of their charts.

For the past 279 weeks Justin Bieber has been the number 1 most Twitter social artist on the Social 50 chart according to Billboard’s analytics, that’s over 5 years.

This past chart however Got7 flew up from 39, where they weren’t even listed as Got7 but as JJProject, to number 2. This is a really big deal in the music industry!! Placing high on these charts turns a lot of heads.

The next chart should come out on Saturday so in order to try to push Got7 into number one we need to tweet them, like tweets, and help them gain as many followers as possible in the mean time!!!

Help Got7 show the industry what kpop can do! Even if they aren’t your favorite group, this is for the greater good!

For anyone who is timeline or date-obsessed like I am, I figured I’d make this post and throw it out there.

The new Honda Civic commercial was filmed on July 27th, probably in Chicago, since that was their hub at the time.

Back when the Honda Civic Tour Diary Part 2 was released, I paid attention to this little clip of Liam talking about Louis ripping his shirt open onstage the night before (which happened on July 26th).

So I made a mental note that this clip was filmed on the 27th, whatever it may have been. If you watch that tour diary video closely, you can see the wardrobe RV they’re in, and they’re obviously in a warehouse with high ceilings. I figured it was some sort of photo/video shoot.

Here in the HCT Tour Diary, you can see a bit of their surroundings:

Notice the pattern on the walls.

Then look at the Civic commercial:

Same walls. Liam’s shirt also matches in both videos.

Lou Teasdale also posted on Snapchat about a shoot on the 27th.

If you’ll notice the lady in the vertical stripes, she’s the one dressing Liam in the Tour Diary video:

Also to add, Niall posted on IG about hanging out with the Fullwell crew on what would have been the night of July 27th.

So blah blah blah, long story short, this commercial was filmed on July 27th for anyone who cares about being precise with dates /o\
