I don't even feel bad about saying this but honestly I could care less about the whole NFL and kneeling for the national anthem. Many of these black men in sports complain about inequality and then go home to their non black wives and bash black women. I just really don't have it in my heart anymore to get all riled up when something is concerning black men.

Same. Not my problem to be honest. I have better shit to worry about. Besides where was the protests when Ray Rice dragged his wife out of an elevator? Oh thats right. Injustice towards black women is just apart of the culture. Injustice towards black men? STOP THE PRESS!

I hate how people are always bad mouthing sharks by saying that they bite people and they ruin lives blah blah...but I don't think they understand that WE GO INTO THEIR ENVIROMENT. They don't just walk onto land and start biting people. If we willingly go into their home, then we must tread lightly and be careful. 99% of the attacks that happen, are unintentional and are just a curious bite. I agree with you completely, the overfishing for sport disgusts me. Sorry about my little rant lol

The creator of jaws has even come to admit that he regrets ever making the franchise as it was a big part of people’s fears of sharks in the first place. He’s actually now spending his life researching them and doing what he can to protect them, which i think is wonderful. I always tell people I would love to go diving with sharks, even great whites and they think I’m nuts like okay sure you think that, they aren’t going to just attack me because I’m human, if something happens it’s MY FAULT for I’m in their home. I am a guest. Humans don’t rule the ocean like many think we do.

  • harry: the road was quiet, and harry had let you drive one of his expensive sports cars home. you weren't exactly sure what the car was called - and usually you wouldn't really care much for the car - but he was letting you drive and there was no-one else on the stretch of road in front of you. you pressed down on the accelerator teasingly, harry raising a brow as he heard the engine rev. he reached for your hand across the console, shaking his head. 'don't even think about it. if we crash and i lose you, i swear to fucking god.' he growled. just as quickly as you had stepped on it, you eased off and laced your fingers with his.
  • zayn: you were at a club when you were offered a pill, which you quickly took hold of in your fingertips. you knew it was dangerous, but things had been a little crazy lately and you needed some form of high to take you away from the reality of life. just as you were about to place the pill on your tongue, zayn pulled at your wrist harshly, making the pill drop to the floor, 'what the fuck do you think you're doing?!' he almost screamed, his grip tightening on your arm, 'don't you dare! i'm not losing you to a fucking drug overdose on something you got off of a random.'
  • louis: the two of you weren't dating, but you'd definitely hooked up more than once. a huge group of you were out with friends, having gone to some after-party to an event that had taken place during the weekend. the night had gone well, but you'd gotten a little too drunk to even walk in your heels. so when a shady guy offered you some help to your car, you couldn't say no. but just as you were about to leave, louis stepped in, ripping you back and pulling you into his chest as he told the other guy to 'fuck off'. he brushed his hand through your hair, shaking his head, 'god you can be a right fucking idiot.'
  • niall: deciding that you wanted to shed a whole lot of weight in light of an awards show that the two of you were to be attending, you completely cut food out of your diet and started heavy exercise too. niall hadn't really picked up on you sneaking to the bathroom to vomit, or refusing meals. until he realised how skinny you had gotten, and the fact that you were about to pass out as you stood up from the couch. he quickly sat you down, lecturing you about the dangers of what you were doing with a whole lot of yelling; before he ordered a pizza and made sure you ate with him.
  • liam: you'd gotten a little (very) drunk and so the idea of climbing over the balcony and walking on the edge seemed like the best idea you'd ever had. as you swung your leg up to move over the banister, liam ripped you back and sent you tumbling to the floor of the balcony. he towered over you, absolutely fuming as he spoke, 'are you fucking crazy?! fucking hell, you're never fucking drinking again.' he spat, grabbing your arm and pulling you back inside. he sat you on the couch, pacing around before he almost had a breakdown, 'don't do that. don't scare me like that!'

anonymous asked:

Do you really think Niall is going to start a golf company? Is that what he's going to do all break? I don't know I just feel like while Niall really does like golf, it seems kind of exaggerated, like the only things he cares about are 1D and sports. It was even in the Perfect music video. I feel like there's more to him than that.

Trashing Niall’s Image

Yes, there is definitely more to him.  While Niall hasn’t generally had his image trashed in the press like the other four have, he’s not completely immune.  

  • There’s the serial fauxmances that seem designed to make him look like he has no respect for relationships and will break them up if it suits him.
  • There’s the supposed fan outrage about Niall hiding his knee surgery despite the fact that the surgery was reported ahead of time. The timeline also points to the article being set up so that fans couldn’t have known about it to be outraged until after the article was released.
  • There’s the short-lived methgate which I’m pretty sure would have gotten more traction as a weedgate had they not gone too far.

Aside from that, Niall’s problem is a bit different.  He’s almost got a non-image. All anyone ever reports about him has to do with sports and occasional relationship speculation.  I’ve seen a good number of fans get upset with Niall simply because he wasn’t involved in any stories about Zayn leaving and they thought he was avoiding the subject entirely or that he didn’t care.

If Niall plans on pursuing a solo career of any type during break, not having a presence in the press may end up being a bit of a disadvantage.  That could be the different, but still effective, way that 1DHQ messed with him this last year or two.  Different image = different way of sabotaging it.

I’m not completely certain that’s what happened, but it’s possible.  It’s also possible that Niall just wasn’t more than an afterthought to 1DHQ because he didn’t have as much baggage with them from the past and he wasn’t one of the most rebellious ones.

Sports Agency?

Moving on from that, no, I don’t think Niall is part of a sports agency with Modest.  The story struck me as odd because:

  1. Niall wasn’t asked to give a quote or anything
  2. Niall wasn’t even in the UK when the story broke
  3. the Sun broke the story
  4. specifically Dan Wootton broke the story
  5. despite Niall being billed as a figurehead the company is named after Modest

When someone investigated, they found the company only has 1 director and has only ever had 1 director and it isn’t Niall.  That pretty much confirms my suspicion after reading the article.  I think they used his name partly just to get attention for their project.

I think this sports agency is very similar to Louis’ imprint label and I wouldn’t be surprised if it just never gets mentioned again after a short while.

Niall + Solo Pursuits

Since the article was also used to push the idea that Niall 1) won’t be doing much solo work over the break and 2) is going a completely different direction from 1D, I assume the opposite is true.

Usually I take the exact opposite from what The Sun clearly wants me to believe as true.  The exception is if new names or dates are introduced. Those tend to actually be important, but I believe the exact opposite of whatever The Sun wants me to believe about them.  For instance: “1D is breaking up after their obligations for MITAM promo are done at the end of February” says to me “1D is going on hiatus and dumping their awful team after the end of February”.

So, given that, I think Niall DOES have something planned for the break that has to do with more than sports.  

Based on the rumor that he’s signing with 42 (a TV-based management company), the fact that he appeared solo on Play to the Whistle!, and that he’s rumored to have been filming to appear as a guest judge in the battle rounds for The Voice of Ireland, it seems like he may have some interest in TV. The evidence points more towards panel shows or judging like Louis with The X Factor.

Niall has also been connected to sports even more than usual the last year or so.  

  • he was seen at The Australian Open for multiple days
  • he was at Wimbledon
  • he was on Play to the Whistle! by himself
  • he got a lot of press for caddying for Rory during the pre-round
  • he played himself in a Celebs and Friends round
  • he was seen celebrating with the Chelsea team after they won a championship
  • he was at the UFC match
  • he was at several other sports events including a baseball game and that time with Liam (I think it was tennis?)
  • he was at the SPOTY Awards with Rory McIlroy
  • he was at the darts championship
  • he was at the final round of the Australian Open
  • his friendship with Djokovic was made very visible by the tunnel greeting being filmed and broadcast
  • athletes seem to always reply to him quickly when he mentions them on Twitter and sometimes athletes that don’t even know him tweet him
  • he posts a lot about sports on his social media, he seems to have or have had some deal with Nike in relation to golf, and some of his UFC promo seems likely to have been paid among others

Niall going to sporting events and talking about sports isn’t unusual, but the sheer amount and variety of sports he’s been connected to is a bit much. Darts… really?  Also things like being on Play to the Whistle! and attending the SPOTY Awards were unusual.  On top of that, he was connected to players and sports even when he wasn’t actually at their games.

I don’t think this is all an accident.  He must have some solo thing coming up that has to do with sports, but since I can’t really imagine what combines sports and TV beyond being a sportscaster or on a sports variety panel show, I’m a bit stumped.

Conclusion

There’s been a lot more reporting on Niall in relation to sports this year.  I think Niall’s team has been preparing him for this year by running more sports stories, but Old Team may have used it to their advantage to keep Niall’s image non-existent outside of the sports articles and occasional relationship gossip.  

The Sun was trying to hide the fact that Niall has solo stuff coming up that probably relates to sports by running this story instead.  They’ve done the same thing with Liam by running stories about him writing for other 1DHQ-related artists rather than that he’s going to have his own solo stuff.  There’s a kernel of truth, but not all of it.  That seems to be the pattern.

The article also got more attention for Modest’s venture that otherwise wouldn’t have been very visible.  However, there’s no concrete link of Niall to the agency and it’s very likely that he’s not really involved with it.

Help, I don't know how to act? Well when I was smaller I always acted more tomboyish, to fit in I started acting more girly eg. I pretended to act a certain way like cross my legs, hate playing soccer, stereotypically girly things ... Now I can be my own self and not care which is what I really want, but I have forgotten who I really am, I have pretended for so long I don't even know what I really like and how to act. How can I find myself when I don't even know the basis of my likes?

My best advice is this: Get comfortable with the unknown. 

It takes a lifetime to fully know who you are and what you are capable of. The fact that you’re thinking about it and willing to work on it puts you way ahead of most people. Try things out. Try a new sport, join a club, try on skirts and then try on men’s jeans (I only buy men’s jeans tbh). Listen to your own self. Don’t let other people define you. Figure out what you like, what points of the day you’re laughing the most, when you’re the most comfortable, and delve into that. Don’t put yourself into boxes and categories. Be an individual, break the mold, life on the edge. But above all else, explore. 

This sums it up well:


“When it’s over, I want to say: all my life
I was a bride married to amazement.
I was the bridegroom, taking the world into my arms. 

When it is over, I don’t want to wonder
if I have made of my life something particular, and real.
I don’t want to find myself sighing and frightened,
or full of argument. 

I don’t want to end up simply having visited this world.” 
― Mary Oliver

Hey, I saw you said that that emoji video was talking about an "insignificant problem". But I think it's supposed to present a wider systemic problem of women not being taken seriously when it comes to sport or their professional career. I don't like the video myself because the way the message is put across makes it seem like just it's just whiny privileged girls complaining about a lack of emojis generally. But do you not think it has a point? Thanks & have a good day.

Hi, girl here. I don’t fucking care if a few pixels represent me or not. Note how in the video, one girl even says “is that surfer a girl? No, it’s just a guy with long hair”. Half the time, you can’t even see the gender of those things, they’re so tiny. If they represent a wider problem, why are we addressing an insignificant symptom of the problem?

Emojis will never represent my future profession either, because “linguist”, “foreign language teacher”, or “national security expert” just don’t translate to emojis. Do I care? Not in the slightest. 

I don’t care if people don’t take women seriously. I will make people take me seriously.
