EDIT/OP’s NOTE: Thank you to everyone who has received my post well. Just before you decide you have an argument/point to discuss, check here, here, here and here. Or it might simply interest you to read. :)

As someone who grew up in a country with a diversity of different cultures (including the Indian culture), I just want to say that Jonghyun did not mock them - that’s almost how all Bollywood movies are like, and if you’re someone who isn’t exposed to them, then maybe you’re just being butthurt and/or self-righteous by making a huge deal out of this - but yes, he still shouldn’t have, in the words on people nowadays, ‘appropriated’ that culture in any way.

That aside (and no, I am not saying Jonghyun is right or fine to do that at all, that is a different discussion), he has already issued an apology.

This was pretty much the first thing he addressed since his concert ended. He didn’t wait and decide to speak up after the series ended. He didn’t let SM or his managers speak for him. He could have easily done all that - let SM represent him or talk about this AFTER everything, but no. He took it to his Twitter on the first night of the concerts and apologised himself. He realised he’s wrong and even assured that that bit will be taken out of the video. What more do you want from the man?

Okay, maybe someone found it really offensive or insensitive, and you have every right to be upset. You can point it out and tell him about it, but you have no right to bash him after he’s publicly apologised. You don’t get to put him on a pedestal and destroy him when he took the time to explain that he knew he was wrong and he would not make such a mistake again.

We are all humans. He is as much a human as you are. You are, by no means, superior to him just because you’re socially aware of such issues. Not everyone gets the same exposure. Everyone is ignorant in some way, and different races/countries/cultures perceive things differently. For example, in America, because of its history and racial diversity, you might learn that joking about skin colour is wrong, but in some parts of Asia, it’s perfectly normal to joke about it. 

For Jonghyun, he grew up in Korea. Maybe this wasn’t something he learned while growing up. I don’t know, but maybe. I certainly wouldn’t if I didn’t grow up in a racially diverse country and didn’t have Indian friends. Yes, the world is global, but everyone grew up with certain ideals and beliefs, and you need to be aware that just because it applies to you doesn’t mean it applies to someone else. 

You preach about the need to educate and to fight for what’s right. Yes, you’ve done that. He is aware and has admits that he’s wrong. Just because he’s an idol doesn’t mean you can go on and on about how he intends to hurt people or etc. He’s an idol, yes, but it doesn’t mean he naturally knows about everything and everyone.

To those who are hurt by what he did, you have every right to be upset. If you feel like his apology isn’t good enough, I’m sorry, but what do you expect him to do? Go down on his knees and beg until you forgive him?

He’s an idol and an adult, and I think the fact that he spoke up about his mistakes himself, at the first moment possible, is commendable. It speaks a lot about who he is as a person. He’s a human, like all of us. Everyone makes mistakes. Can you honestly say that you have never been accidentally/unintentionally ‘racist’ at some point in your life? How would you like if people bash on you even if you gave a sincere apology about a mistake you did not intend to commit?

We all know him. He’s a sensitive soul. Do you honestly believe he’s done this on purpose? He apologised. Give him a freaking break. He’s a human with feelings. Don’t be a jerk just because he’s an idol whom you expect to be a ‘PERFECT’ role model. Nobody is. People learn and change. 

7 Characteristics Of Aquarius |

1. They’re smart, very smart… and not easily fooled.

2. In a crowded room amongst people they know, they can still feel lonely.

3. They overthink at night and oversleep in the morning.

4. Sometimes, they like to do crazy things just for the hell of it. Sometimes!

5. They genuinely love doing things from the heart for you…. if you’re worth it.

6. They know how to shut people up with facts, quickly.

7. Opening up to others isn’t easy for them, so it takes patience (and time) to really, really know them.

I don’t even know why I’m so sad. I don’t even know if I have any right to be. But all I know is that I wanted to touch you in the softest way I could, hoping I would be able to take hold of you. But sometimes even if you do everything right, all they’ll ever see is everything else that’s wrong. I don’t want to regret you, god knows I already have a few of those on my back pocket. But every time you’ve said and done something that broke my heart just a little bit, it makes me want to take back all the parts of me I openly gave you. Do you realize how hard that is for me to do? I am not this fragile thing that easily breaks, but all my life small pieces have been chipped off here and there by people whose hands just wanted to take and take. I am so tired. All I wanted to do was rest my head on your shoulders just long enough for me to be able to breathe. And for a while I thought we’d be a home, you and I. But somewhere in between the words you’ve said - the maybe’s, the I think I’m in love with you’s, the I want you’s, the you’re mine’s - somewhere in between all of that, you changed your mind. You should have known, they said. But I didn’t. Because we were beautiful. At least I thought we were. That’s on me, I guess.

Programmer Choromatsu (feat. Matsuyo and Jyushimatsu)

Mother Matsuyo’s Stupid Parental Observations of Choromatsu:

“He has a serious side to him, so he’s good at making sure things get done. Maybe a job that seeks both accuracy and good judgment would suit him. He’s easily influenced by his surroundings, so if he’s at a work place with a lot of determined people, he’d also be lured in and would do his job very frantically. But it looks like all he can do is figure out a few notebook PCs at the cafe, so he’s not satisfied.” 

Younger Brother Jyushimatsu’s Criticism of Choromatsu:

“He’s one to talk~ He’s fussy~ I wonder if he’s unable to become a bit more levelheaded? Don’t you think he cares too much about how society views him? He gets really conscious about things he’s unable to do, and I think it’s better if he stops doing that. It’s all a lie anyway! It’s undeniable that he’s excusing the things he can’t do as things he doesn’t want to do~ Todomatsu even says, ‘It’s all stuff coming from his mouth and not anywhere else’!”

What is the difference between normal and maladaptive daydreaming?

So many people have this question so I’ll try to make this answer short and simple.

Daydreaming means zoning out for a while to imagine (normally enjoyable) situations. Daydreaming is only maladaptive when it is:

a) excessive
(think: Do you daydream more than most people? Do you spend almost all your free time daydreaming? Do you daydream so much it makes it difficult to live your life?)


b) compulsive
(think: Do you find it almost impossible to control? Do you keep daydreaming despite negative consequences? When you start can you stop again easily? Do you experience cravings to daydream?)

That’s it. Maladaptive daydreaming = excessive, compulsive daydreaming.

But what about pacing and characters/paras and violent daydreams and all of that stuff?

Many maladaptive daydreamers have noticed similarities in how they daydream. Some of the most common are:

- having extremely detailed daydreams
- having daydreams that repeatedly involve the same people (these people are known as characters/paras)
- feeling very strong attachment to their characters/paras
- having daydreams which are explicitly violent or sexual
- feeling detached from reality or not caring about it at all
- unconsciously doing a repetitive movement while daydreaming. Normally this is pacing but it can be anything.
- needing or prefering to listen music while daydreaming
- imagining the same scenarios over and over until they are perfect
- etc.

It’s normal for maladaptive daydreamers to do the above things. They could even be considered symptoms. But not everyone does them and that doesn’t matter. The only thing that makes daydreaming maladaptive is if it is excessive and compulsive.

Although the two planets very different, Jupiter and Saturn in my opinion can show the places where we’re snobby and arrogant about.

Jupiter is the planet that grants us luck and talent. With Jupiter, there is a natural inclination to be optimistic and skillful at whatever you do in the House it’s located in. However, with skill comes arrogance. For example, if you have Jupiter in the 5th House, your hobbies and creativities can come easily to you. However, when you see other people struggling with a creative block, you may think, “How is it so hard to be creative? It’s so easy for me!” In other words, Jupiter can make us arrogant due to the easy flow of our skills.

Saturn makes us arrogant in another way. Unlike Jupiter, skills do not come to us naturally. With Saturn, there is no optimism. With Saturn, we gain the skills we are good at due to pain and learning. However, like Jupiter, you can be snobby in the House your Saturn is located in. With Saturn though, there is more mature, yet discriminating understanding of a certain issue. For example, if you have Saturn in the 2nd, you may have felt the pain of not feeling secure with your money, but over time, you’ve learned. You can watch someone struggle financially and think, “I’ve been there before, but like… years ago. How can they not think of the consequences and be practical about it?”

Of course, this is how our Jupiter and Saturn can act up if we used it in a negative light. Jupiter can be used to help inspire others while Saturn can be used to teach others.

We all have old versions of ourselves. Do you see yourself the same way as last year, last month, or even last week? I do not. I talk to people so easily these days, I stand where I once crumbled just at a touch last year. I do not cry when my father raises his voice like I did a few months ago. I compliment a girl I could not talk to last week. Constantly, we are changing, growing, fluctuating.

This is how I know we have many soulmates. Maybe you met yours when you were as young as eight or as old as seventy-eight. Either way, we have a soulmate of every version of ourselves. You loved an old version of me. You can keep her. I do not want that version of myself back ever again.

—  We are growing and changing constantly, we all have different versions of ourselves that different versions of people love.

anonymous asked:

Hippolyta once said Kory rivalled Wonder Woman in terms of combat skill. WW is currently considered the best melee fighter in the DC universe, but I think that was stated quite a while after that NTT issue. What sort of skill level do you think she was intended as being? Do you think she’d beat Dick in terms of pure skill (i.e if she got depowered to human levels)? If so, are we talking her being Nightwing/Batman/WW level still? Tbh it’s sad people seem to forget how much a ninja she actually is

For reference: 

[New Teen Titans v1 #13]

I believe that she was intended to be a highly skilled and adaptive warrior that could easily adapt to all forms of combat. As you can see above, Hippolyta tells Raven they’ll see how well Kory handles a battle staff and Kory proves that she’s incredibly skilled because she was instructed in the use of something similar on Okaara:

I absolutely think she could take Dick in a fight if she was de-powered and even though she tends to rely on her starbolts a lot, she’s still a highly skilled fighter. Here’s something that Vic said about her in New Titans:

[New Titans #63]

He says she, Kory, and Raven are the three most powerful Titans and I think this applies to everything about them, not just their power sets. And we can’t forget about the time she beat Donna in Tales:

[Tales of the Teen Titans #42]

Suffice to say, I believe that Kory could definitely be on par with the bigger names of DC Comics but that writers forget/ignore how powerful and skilled she actually is. Hopefully one day, Kory will be able to return to that same skill level with her background as a warrior more fully explored and implemented in her story. 

When you call people, specifically those in the lgbt community, delusional for seeing themselves represented on screen.. do you realise how that sounds?

When you put so much heat into your words against johnlock but not against other ships in the fandom, do you realise how that looks?

When you can easily see a romance between Holmes and Watson when one of them is a woman but find it preposterous when it is two men, do you realise what you are implying?

Now, I try to stay out of shipping wank. I try to keep my blog as positive as it can be, celebrating johnlock as I see them with some lovely people I’d like to call my friends.

This is beyond shipping wank however. This is coming onto someone’s blog to aggressively tell them that they are wrong in a world where lgbt are told they are ‘wrong’ every single day just for being who they are.

How dare you. What gives you the right?

Let us have this. Let us celebrate this. Let us have something positive to look forward to and that can change lives for the better.

Why would you even want to ruin that for us? If you don’t believe, whatever, keep it to yourself if you’re unable to open your mind to even the smallest possibility. Leave us alone.

quick reminder that this is not an advice blog!! I’m sorry I’d love to help you all but most of the time the questions I get asked could either easily be Googled or I have no idea how to answer them :( if you do send me messages they won’t be ignored!! I love talking to you guys!! but where possible do it off-anon so it doesn’t clog the blog with anons, or check the resources page for advice blogs you can contact. I wish I could be of more help to people but I am just one person with a limited knowledge of the world and I want you to get the best answers to your questions possible  <3

This is a shout out for every kid with asthma who can’t:

play with animals
walk up stairs
laugh hard
Get startled
Be anywhere near smoking
Breathe in sudden cold air
Be tickled
Fucking Stairs
Play sports

without triggering an asthma attack (which then triggers panic attacks)

And for every time anyone ever accused that you were faking it or questioned how “bad” asthma really is. For every time you were ever told that you were doing it just for attention.

And for those having to rely on medication that damages the cells in your body and causes you to bruise easily and not heal regularly.

For always being tired and thus accused of being lazy. For the fear and anxiety that comes with not being able to locate an inhaler.

I see you guys. I feel you guys. You’re all so amazing and strong. You function even though basic daily tasks are 50x harder for you than for most people.

You do not get enough credit.


Do you ever feel like an alien? Like you’re an outsider looking in? Seeing people living their lives, experiencing different situations and emotions that seem so foreign to you.. like how do people fall in love so easily? How do they maintain deep relationships with others?.. I’ve always felt like I was just imitating people.. like I never really knew how to live in this world because it was never meant for me. Whoever brought me here forgot to give me the key that would unlock the doors to this universe which would allow me to really live my life and not just be a spectator of how other people live theirs…

I feel stupid. Inspired, but stupid.

So. As you may be aware, I can’t shut up about Seth Rollins. I have not shut up about him since July. And this is fine, I’m having fun being a wrestling fan and a fan of this particular nerd, it’s a good time!

However. Recently, I’ve been feeling rubbish about a thing and that thing is the fact that I am not one bit fit. I have a bum knee after a dislocation years ago (they both dislocate far too easily, which is why I never run. For anything) and I’m also hugely lazy. I joined a gym twice in the last two years, then quit because I just couldn’t be arsed. So I’m really, really unfit. I am the slowest walker I have ever met, for example.

And then. And then you start watching these people do ridiculous things in a wrestling ring and you realise how HARD they must work. The level of fitness they need to do the things they do is off any scale I have a reference for.

And hey, you know who else blew his knee? He started from an infinitely higher baseline of fitness than I did, but the fact remains that Seth Rollins blew every ligament in his knee and I’ve seen the documentary, I’ve seen what it did to him, I’ve seen where he is now and how he came back even stronger, and dammit dammit DAMMIT if it doesn’t make me think, well, Kez, you’re the only one who can do a damn thing about this problem.

So I joined the gym again.

And I went for the first time tonight.

And I wanted to give up after twenty minutes on a bike.

But I didn’t.

I did not give up because I thought about Seth, who did not give up. I am literally, actually, for real using a wrestler as inspiration to push myself through stuff.

Look, I’m fat, okay? I’ve always been fat, I don’t care any more, I’m not doing this for weight loss. I just want some level of physical fitness. I want to be able to walk for miles without it being tiring, I want to be able to lift heavy shit without hating every muscle in my arms, I want to be able to do stuff faster, I want to stop being too tired to walk home from the station at the end of the day. Little things like that.

And so I started. It’s been one evening, it isn’t much. But I started.

But I feel ridiculous because of why I started. I started because of Seth freakin’ Rollins. That IS ridiculous. I mean for fuck’s sake I even did it listening to the WWE Workout playlist he made for Spotify. RIDICULOUS.

Isn’t it?

Maybe it doesn’t matter why you start as long as you start. Maybe you have to take inspiration wherever you can get it. Maybe I was right the first time and I’m daft, but… I started. And when I want to give up, I’m gonna think about Seth and then I’m gonna keep going.

Because he wouldn’t quit. I don’t think he’d want anyone else to quit either.

So I’m ridiculous. And I’ll keep right on going.

A couple of thoughts: why don’t we give people around us more love when it is one of the few things we can give even if we don’t have it ourselves? Why don’t we ever say what we really think, especially when we get our hearts broken? Why do we always settle for less than we deserve, even if the people around us are willing to give us more? When will we decide to live life the way we want to and give up on people who don’t deserve us? And who is it that we’re waiting for? Why are there some sentences that everyone thinks, but no one says? Why can’t we say “I love you” and “I miss you” or “I thought about you  a lot today” and “you look beautiful” as easily as we can say “hey” or “how are you”? Why do we make life tough for ourselves and create drama when there’s nothing to create drama about? Why do people find apologizing so hard even if there’s nothing they want to do more than say sorry and make up? Why do we decide to call so few people our friends when the whole world is filled with people we might potentially get along with, who are all so unique and special? Why do we spend our whole lives at one place when there are so many beautiful places to discover? Why do we make such a big deal out of falling in love when it is something that almost every human being does?

And when will people decide to break down all the walls they have built around themselves and begin to truly live the way they want to?
