how awesome was taken

anonymous asked:

I really hope you will take on board what people are saying, it seems you are so far which is awesome obviously. But... Please don't refer to witches as not-sane, or cr*zy; the implication you can't indulge in witchcraft if you aren't sound of mind is really kind of disgusting. Witchcraft is a belief system (ultimately), and believing in something doesn't mean you're m*d. Plenty people believe in stuff. Neurotypical or otherwise.

Mental Illness has nothing to do with witchcraft. You aren’t crazy for doing it. You aren’t insane for doing it. You aren’t mad for doing it. You’re crazy brave for doing it. It is awesome and insane how much witchcraft has taken off in the 21st century and how we have this large of a movement on Tumblr. It BLOWS MY MIND! When I said it is something along the lines of that it’s something for people with mental illness i think I was talking about myself three years ago. I tried to kill myself towards the end of it but it wasn’t because of witchcraft it was because of my deep seated hatred for myself at the time and abuse at home. But you know what witchcraft did for my mental illness? It gave me something to dive into. I immersed myself into it and it made me so so happy to learn as much as I can. There are sane witches and I’m sorry I worded it that way. What I meant was through becoming a witch you jumped off the deep end into a world of magic and joy (sometimes fear depending on if you work with demons) and you went with it. That’s not society’s definition of “sane” but we are witches are our definition of wild or cra$y is way different than yours. We are on a whole other level of awesome and magical that the world can’t quite comprehend and that’s okay. I’m sorry I worded things the way I did. I am not good at social interactions so I say things in one way and they are taken another way sometimes. But that’s okay because I’m learning. Thankyou for your kindness. We aren’t crazy. We are wonderful and sane. We aren’t cookie cutter because we are witches. We are the “weirdos” mister. (If you don’t relate to the passionate happy way I describe witches then don’t relate that’s okay) (that’s just how I feel and experience it)

Still haven’t recovered

From last night’s Lucifer. I’m so, so, so glad that the show is doing this well and that they’ve taken it in this direction. I’m loving how the relationships among the characters (not just Lucifer and Chloe) have developed this far. You know it’s good if I’m still thinking about it the next day and writing a text post lol.

Assorted musings:

  • I love Maze’s development. She was so one-dimensional for much of season 1 and I really wasn’t sure where they’d take her. Seeing her grow into her own person and valuing her friendships with humans (especially Trixie!) just really does give me life.
  • Seeing Lucifer suffer the way he is, his self-loathing, how much he wants to be someone else is killing me, but that’s just a testament to how absolutely awesome Tom Ellis and the writers are. They could have taken this so many ways, but choosing to give this character the complexity and moral dilemmas he deserves is the reason this show will (hopefully) be around for a long time.
  • Lucifer and Dan - need I say more? I need more buddy cop/bromance from them on a daily basis.
  • Dan does improv! I’ll never get over that. I’m glad we’re getting to see a different side of him, too. The writers could have kept him as the stereotypical awful ex, but that they’re giving him dimension and depth speaks volumes for the quality of this show.
  • We also got to see a side of Chloe we hadn’t up until now. She was emotionally broken and vulnerable, and I think that’s the first time we actually get to really see what motivates her (other than when she basically told Lucifer as much in season 1). I really hope, when Lucifer eventually reveals himself to her (because that has to happen) that she takes it better than Linda did. After how Lucifer reacted last season to her trying to arrest him, I doubt he’d survive her rejection.
  • That Deckerstar hug.

This show just keeps getting better and I don’t know what to do with myself. That is all.

seriously, have a quick comparison:

Those are directly from a video that was not filmed with extra flash lighting

This is a non-bleached, awesome fan taken picture


And this, this is how fansites and media ususally make him look:


But hey, fandom totally doesn’t white wash anyone ever, right?

Imagine...

-Naoto solving a case with confidence and pizazz, Detective Conan style

-Rise being present as Naoto coolly and confidently breaks down the suspect with her findings

-Naoto smirking as she pins the nail in the bad guy’s coffin, and Rise swooning

-Rise glomping the crap out of Naoto once the bad guy is taken away

-Rise squeeing about how ‘cool’ and ‘awesome’ Naoto was

-Naoto embarrassed but super happy deep down inside since she’s always wanted to be seen as a ‘cool, manly detective’

imagine it

This is one of the things I endlessly love Budapest for. Randomly bumping into people you know. When the beautiful unexpected happens, and you are just there like, can this night get any better?! Seriously, how awesome this small city centre is? 

This photo was taken on a really long and amazing night. We already met lots of people, with some KFC food in our hands we were on our way back to the gang and she was just there, with her cute smile.. 

youtube

A powerful spoken word and video by Prince Ea and Stand For Trees that really puts our presence on this beautiful Earth into perspective. This is an awesome piece that sums up how we’ve taken nature for granted and why it’s so important that we start giving back. Take a look and while you’re at it, check out StandForTrees.org and WaterDefense.org too!

Can you imagine...

How awesome it would be if after all these pics were taken.

The photographers stopped taking pictures, and the directors were like, “Okay, we’re not finished yet. There’s still more to the story.”

And that is when they finished shooting what happened after Daryl walked out of Grady with Beth. 

I can’t wait to see that BTS video when they reveal what happened at Atlanta and those 17 days. If they just leave it as is, it will always bother me…

Like Norman saying something like, “They had us all fooled. Like I said, It was a crazy day that day.”

I’ve officially hit insanity where this tag is concerned. 

GW2: Meal #2

So I need to tell you a thing about veggies. And how awesome they are. Especially in games, where I think they are taken for granted. Many of the popular posts about game food involves either sweets or meat of some kind, and I feel that veggies just get overlooked. Because, of course, in the game world they’re icky, and they must not be worth that much health or anything, and I’m kind of sick of it???

Like, if you look at WoW (pre-Panderia) there are maybe 2 or 3 recipes that contain veggies. As if all the other veggies are horribly toxic or something. I understand it fit into their gameplay with not having yet another craft and only using drops for recipes but…how does more of the game world NOT have scurvy?

This is why I liked the more robust turn that newer MMOs like Guild Wars 2 took with their crafting. More variety and complexity meant a more realistic array of food available to you. It is for this reason that today’s post, another multi-recipe meal, contains an all vegetable cast! (err..and rice)

Stuffed Zucchini

You definitely want to find large zucchinis for this recipe. The texture is very “meaty” when baked, and the more zucchini that doesn’t have to be scooped out, the better!

~Ingredients~

  • 2 large Zucchinis
  • 1 cup Rice, cooked
  • 1-2 Roma Tomatoes 
  • 1/3 White Onion
  • Optional Spices/Toppings: Salt, Pepper, Lime, Olive Oil

Prep Time: 15-20 min.  |  Total Cook Time: 45 min.

Serves: 4-6 People

~Instructions~

Step 1.) Preheat oven to 400°F Cook the rice as per normal instructions (1 cup rice:2 cup water, bring to boil, add rice, reduce heat and cover for 20 minutes.) Set aside to cool.

Step 2.) While the rice is cooking, cut the zucchini in half lengthwise. Using a spoon or knife, scrape and scoop out the seediest parts of the insides. Set aside. 

^ Two of my roommates are not fans of zucchini, so I used bell pepper for them

Step 3.) Once the rice is ready, roughly chop the tomato and onion and mix into the rice. Add salt and pepper if desired.

Step 4. ) Use a spoon to scoop the rice mixture into the zucchini. Place on a baking tray, sprinkle with olive oil if you want to, and bake in the oven for 10-15 min. Serve hot!

Mango Salsa

This is a very chunky salsa that has sweet, spicy, and salty flavor all rolled into one! You can choose to puree the mixture into a more traditional salsa consistency, but I really liked the bulkiness of leaving everything freshly chopped.

~Ingredients~

  • 3 Roma Tomatoes
  • 1/3 Sweet Onion
  • 1 Fresh Jalapeno or other spicy pepper
  • 2 Mangoes
  • 2 Avocados
  • ½ Lemon
  • Optional spices: salt, pepper

Total Cook Time: 10-15 min.

Serves: 4-8 people

~Instructions~

Step 1.) Roughly chop the tomatoes, onion, jalapeno, mango, and avocado and mix together in a bowl. 

(For those who are not familiar with cubing avocado: lengthwise, cut in a full circle around the avocado, making sure your knife touches the pit. Twist gently and put apart. On the seedless side, score the avocado into cubes, deep enough that the knife touches the skin but does not break it. Turn skin inside out over bowl and scrape off cubes. Remove seed from other side with a spoon, and repeat the process.) 

Step 2.) Add in salt, pepper, cilantro, and juice from half a lemon, toss to combine.

Step 3.) Nope that’s it, you’re done. Serve immediately!

~Results~

Everything was soooo good! If you’re wondering what the white stuff is on the food, I made an impromptu “ranch” dip for those in my apartment that are picky about vegetables, and since I already had some on my plate for photo balancing, I just decided to eat it with the zucchini. But honestly, it didn’t even need it, the salsa and zucchini went together so well!
