“I like to change my hair, I like to take risks with how I dress, I like girls, and I like guys (yes), I like growing, I like learning, I like who I am and I really like who I’m becoming. Spent way too many years hating myself, thinking I was less valuable because I was different… which is just untrue. A couple years ago I was able to accept myself, and it saved my life, but now I’ve gotten to a new road block and I feel kind of lost. I gotta take the next step and actually embrace who I am, which is pretty exciting. Not faking shit anymore, not apologizing for falling in love with people no matter their gender. I’ve become bored of being insecure, ashamed, scared… no one should feel like that about themselves, especially when there is so much good life to live. Ya know more and more I see so many young people being their best / truest selves, it’s fucking inspiring… so what have I been waiting for!? Who knows. Everyone in their own time. I hope we can all learn to embrace who we are and not judge people who aren’t exactly the same as us. The truth is we are all family, we’re all one. Just love.”

 A couple years ago I was able to accept myself, & it saved my life, but now I’ve gotten to a new road block & I feel kind of lost. I gotta take the next step & actually embrace who I am, which is pretty exciting. Not faking sh*t anymore, not apologising for falling in love with people no matter their gender. I’ve become bored of being insecure, ashamed, scared… no one should feel like that about themselves, especially when there is so much good life to live.

Ya know more & more I see so many young people being their best / truest selves, it’s f*cking inspiring… so what have I been waiting for!? Who knows. Everyone in their own time. I hope we can all learn to embrace who we are & not judge people who aren’t exactly the same as us.”

Beautiful. Congrats, Keiynan!

I’m crazy into black dusty backgrounds, the mother-son dynamic of Princess Leia and her son and Daughter lyrics … So I combine that shit.

Keiynan Lonsdale penned a very personal message on Instagram late Friday night. The 25-year-old actor, who plays Wally West in The Flash, came out as bisexual in a lengthy note. “I like to change my hair, I like to take risks with how I dress, I like girls, & I like guys (yes), I like growing, I like learning, I like who I am and I really like who I’m becoming. Spent way too many years hating myself, thinking I was less valuable because I was different.. which is just untrue,” he wrote.

Keiynan thanked his fans for their support the following day on Twitter, writing, “Nothing better than happy tears. The love is beyond measurable, thank you. Don’t forget to give that same love back to yourselves x.”

Fire Emblem Echoes: Another Hero King (Shadows of Valentia) Impressions

***No Story or Character Spoilers***

I dont speak or read a word of Japanese so I couldnt give my thoughts on the characters or story even if I wanted to.  In addition to missing out on the story and character development I also only scratched the surface of the skill(tech) system as well as the sidequest system.  All of that is enough to make me not want to call this a review; I need to play it in English and do the postgame content to have a complete opinion on the game, but as it stands I still have a lot of thoughts about the game after one complete playthrough. So…here are those thoughts:

Hello Fire Emblem Fans of America! Here are some more announcements on how the game will be changed for all you kooky kids! Now with 200% more censorship!

Besides those inappropriate parental advisory scenes that were taken out of the game, there have been some other changes! Check out the totally fresh list for the recently renamed Fire Emblem Family! (now for all ages):

Names

The names that are too hard to spell and pronounce have now been changed to make the game more American. Some of the changes are below:

Corrin is now Carl/Carol

Camilla is now Bertha

Takumi is now Trent

Sakura is now Sammy

New songs!

All original songs in the game have been replaced by famous childrens tunes and funky original FE rhymes! Stay tuned.

No Romance!

Love can get rather inappropriate, so besides removing the questionable scenes, the entire romance aspect is removed entirely. Ranks are now all purely friendship based! Make friends with your squad and learn the importance of family!

No Deaths!

Death is a touchy subject! All possible death scenes have been removed, and now all characters (even the enemies) can just get “knocked out!” How clumsy!

FE is now a family-based experience for all to enjoy!

Stay FRESH!

a small note about this post: Besides not actually being really salty (which most people think I am, I actually am pretty excited for the game and am not bashing Nintendo OR any one associated with the localization team), this post was not meant to say how horrible FE Fates was or to sway people from not buying the game. I love the franchise and I hope to promote its growth. I was joking about the “possible” censorship. I really hope it does well in the West. FE is a fantastic franchise and I’m glad Awakening saved it. Also, there are posts going around that the no skinship thing was misinformation spread across the Internet. Please keep this in mind.

mun name: Matt (It’s not my real name, but it is my middle name)
mun timezone: I live in London Ontario Canada, which is in the EST timezone
mun’s favourite city: This is hard! I love New York (I went for a week a year ago and it was amazing!) But I also really love Vancouver (I went a couple years ago and was there for a month)
character’s name: Victor Watts
character’s city: New Orleans. I picked it because I had already been inspired to make the character before I applied, and I felt New Orleans was the perfect fit. It’s a city that has a lot of charm and beauty to it, but is actually a pretty dangerous place.
anything else: Honestly, I am very excited to be here and I can’t wait to bring Victor to life. He’s very different from any other character I’ve ever played. Extremely tragically flawed and leads a pretty dark and depressing life. That excites me because I usually play the good, pure hearted characters. I’m looking forward to getting to rp with all of you! 

anonymous asked:

Hey, so what do you think of the to all the boys i've lived before casting?

anyway it’s like 4am but here i go.

i’m actually pretty excited and am going to support it no doubt but i definitely think it’s kind of shady there aren’t any koreans involved, acting-wise (except maybe kitty’s actress? i can’t find anything on her). i mean it’s a fair point that it’s not exactly a story about her korean identity but it was definitely an important part, at least to me: it has her hanbok, she talks about jung. even if it wasn’t a big part, lara jean’s korean-american identity was important to her, too.

i was actually really happy when i saw lana was casted but the more i think about it the more it bothers me. i think she’ll do great; i think she’s beautiful and immensely talented. but is anyone in this film an actual korean? ethnic casting especially with asians is messy and will be for a long time considering the state of hollywood. in a perfect world where everyone has the same opportunity we’d get an all biracial korean-american cast. but we really just aren’t there yet. that doesn’t make it okay but it’s true. and vietnamese-american actors and actresses are more sparse than even korean-american ones in hollywood, so.

right now i do think it is important for asian-american actors and actresses to get their feet in and i think we need to support this movie while staying critical of the casting choices.
short answer: i love lana and would die for her willingly. i’m going to watch the hell out of the movie. am i a upset? a little. would i have preferred a korean actress not for just lara jean but also margot and kitty? yeah. definitely.

HOUSE IDEAS: The Filming Room!

I’m in a rather artistic mood today which RARELY happens so i am making the most of my focus and trying to plan some ideas for the (Potential) new house. Now we all know nothing with houses is certain until you move in so im keeping calm and collected but channelling my excitement into PLANNING. Something i am actually pretty good at.

Now we mentioned in a vlog that we would be having more space, this allows us to have a guest bedroom, an office as well as a filming space. The space will mostly be used by me during the daytimes for Beautaeyi videos.. meaning i can film as much as i want without having to lug around lights and camera equipment everywhere. This also means we have a space for any ITLD sit down videos like our un-boxings or mail videos.

This is sort of how the space is going to look furniture wise, we both agreed a Day Bed is perfect for a filming room because you can sit on it like a sofa but also turn it into a bed for when you have extra guests. Ofc i need a desk of some sort to film at as well as my beauty storage and a big full length mirror.

For the flooring i am leaning more towards a wooden or laminate flooring because makeup can be messy and i wouldn’t want to accidentally ruin a new carpet.. but a rug to add some warmth to the floor is very do-able.

As you can see i have already chosen a Aubergine colour rug. This is the colour i think i want for the back wall, basically as a feature wall. Something like this..

Then the rest of the room being a nice glossy white. I feel this would add some depth to the back wall, we all know how washed out i get when i film against white walls so that would solve those issues. Also i think purple is a very universal colour, it can look classic, girly and even sophisticated so it would work for all ITLD videos also. With the rest of the room white it would still be light and airy but not like a white box.

The main reason i have been drawn to this colour is we brought 3 Destiny Blue art prints a year or so ago and i think they would work perfectly in this room. 

I imagine the three prints we have to be framed and hung on the right side wall.. the pops of purples and blues will really show up nicely on a white wall but also compliment the purple on the back feature wall.

This is all just my morning musings, hope this all makes sense and let me know what you think :3 xox

What’s inside my Bag 2015 // Tomorrow, June 17, 2015, Wednesday will be our first day of school and before, I was pretty much excited, actually, I still am because of the major changes in our school and finally, we got new classmates. I will be entering Grade Nine this year 😁. Today, I organized my supplies because that’s the part I really enjoy the most 😍

Let’s get started!

1. Bag - my bag is from Thailand, my mum bought it for me and its a navy blue (my favourite colour) Rilakkuma bag.

2. Notebooks - In the supplies list I was given, it says there to buy Ten notebooks so I did and they are all from MUJI (as you can see, in the picture, there’s only 5 but I didn’t include the other 5 because they’re just the same) they are multicoloured B5 notebooks from MUJI. I have my big Cattleya Mathematics Notebook because I really need a big one.

3. Planner - I’m a fan of Total Girl planners because they have adorable planners and slambook, also my favourite artist is the illustrator of Total Girl planners (check out her tumblr, littlemisspaintbrush 😊 ) I got the 2015 DIY planner (along with a 2014 slambook….yeah I know) I didn’t use my 2014 planner last year but now, I will really use it (I have 2 planners, this one and I have another one which will stay in my desk because its also like a journal)

4. Pencil case - I will be using the same pencil case I used last year.
I have:
3 coloured Dong-A gel pens (black, red, and blue)
one Pentel Gel pen
Faber Castell pencils
MUJI Eraser in black
Maped black Scissors
Faber Castell highlighter in Purple
2 Hodge Podge pens (Chibi Stormtrooper and TARDIS 😍)
Invisible Tape and Double sided tape
One big Correction tape

I have more stuff in my pencil case because I will be reusing a lot of pens, pencils, highlighters aaaand I’m a hoarder. 😅

5. Art supplies - I have a Berkeley Sketch Pad, Faber Castell coloured pencils and ART Stuff oil pastels

6. MISCELLANEOUS

Post-It notes
Index Cards
Exacto Knives in that blue case (i wont bring it in school tho)

I also bought papers but I didn’t include them in the picture. I bought a pack of coloured papers, Manila paper, Graphing Papers, Intermediate pads, Lengthwise and Crosswise pads, and ¼ pads.
I also bought a Scientific Calculator, protractor and a drawing compass for Algebra, Geometry and Trigonometry. As you can see, I will be bringing my Wreck-It Journal for boredom purposes and another sketchbook (I didn’t include it in the photos)

8. School kit - To start of, I can’t go to school without my wallet, that purple Michaela wallet is the one I brought last year and now because its my favourite 👍🏼. I have a good eyesight (20/20) but sometimes, I get dizzy so when I write, I put glasses on (its actually for Computer radiation but oh well, its very useful.)

Now for the kit:

My school kit is a black pouch (I didn’t include it in the picture) It contains sanitary napkin, Hello Kitty bubblegum scented Wipes (err), Hello Kitty medical kit with bandaids and stuff in case someone or me gets bruised, A cute pastel blue Owl themed bandaids in this super cute Owl tin, I will be bringing three Oil control sheets (Clean and Clear, Gatsby, and Little Twin Stars, which I didn’t include again), Doublemint mints (not in the pic), Colgate Floss (not in the pic) and hand sanitizer and alcohol (not in the pics)

In that blue silicone pouch, I has my mini perfumes, lip balm and lip tint (idk why but I carry it), and my sewing kit.

well, that’s a long post! Wish me luck for tomorrow ahahaha I set goals for this year and hopefully, nah wait, I WILL DO MY BEST TO ACHIEVE THOSE GOALS.
