I'm crying right now I have no idea what's going to happen to me. I was supposed to apply to medical school next year but now I might not even finish my undergrad. I have a perfect record and a great academic transcript. I work at a cake shop. How am I a threat to the country? I just feel like everything is being taken from me and I don't know what I did to deserve this. I honestly think my life will end once my DACA expires.

You’re going to make it through gorlie there are THOUSANDS of people contacting their senators and congressmen like hell right now. People are fighting for you and they WILL continue fighting for you. We still have six months to convince congress to not pull through with this. We still live in a somewhat democracy and it’s not 100% up to that saturated baby in office. Don’t give up on your dreams, you should still try because giving up is exactly what those xenophobes want you to do. They want you to feel intimidated because they think you’re less when in reality you have a lot of good things to bring to the world. I know it’s extremely stressful and I can’t even imagine how scared you feel, but just know a lot of people are on your side 💕💕💕

The gender reveal
  • (The year is 2017; Harry and Draco, aged 37, find themselves at a gender reveal party.)
  • Draco: I don't understand this at all, Potter.
  • Harry, sighing: It's George's newest bestseller. St Mungo's sends WWW the fetus's sex and they magic fireworks to reveal the news. Blue fireworks for boy, pink for girl.
  • Draco: I know that. What I don't understand is why.
  • Harry: It's insane. That's why you don't understand. And another thing! It's not a "gender" reveal. It's a "sex" reveal.
  • Draco, raising an eyebrow: You and Hermione need to stop reading those Witch and Gender Studies books.
  • Harry: I'm serious! All they know is whether the baby will come out with a penis!
  • Draco: Admittedly, an important factor. Oh Salazar, look. We are not playing this game, Harry.
  • Harry: What are they doing?!
  • Draco: I think they're Charming one team blue and one team pink and having them race? This is so undignified. Quick, Disillusion me. Did you bring your Cloak?
  • Harry: Shut up. What I don't understand is, who cares if they have a boy or a girl?
  • Draco: Say what you want about Pureblood traditions, Potter. Call us regressive. Call us bigoted. We would never tolerate this nonsense. Only you barmy progressives could come up with something so preposterous.
  • Harry: Oh bloody hell. Now they have pink and blue cakes and we're supposed to guess the sex by way of eating cake.
  • Draco: Can I demand a blue cake with pink frosting?
  • Harry, laughing: Yes! Let's do it! Let's sneak up and Transfigure them! You make the blue frosting pink on yours. I'm going to make my whole cake rainbow. Can I write "Queer AF" on top? That's what the kids say these days, right?
  • Draco, smirking: Oh, I dare you. If you actually do that, I will do the dishes for a month.
  • ....... Five minutes later......
  • Harry, grimacing: I've never seen a grandmother so angry.
  • Draco, scowling: I've never been accused of brainwashing a fetus before.
  • Harry: Do you think we can leave yet?
  • Draco: Potter, you are the most conspicuous guest at any gathering. No, I don't think we can sneak out before the penis-status announcement.
  • Harry: Have I mentioned how stupid I think this is.
  • Draco: A few hundred times. And though you know I agree with you, you need to stop whining about it.
  • Harry, smirking: Make me, Malfoy.
  • *Heated snogging*
  • Draco: Oh good, here comes the announcement about the presence or absence of the fetus vagina.
  • Harry, snickering: I don't think I've ever heard you say the word 'vagina' before.
  • Draco: Well, it's not in my general vocabulary.
  • Harry: Thank Merlin for that. ... Oh God, here it comes.
  • *Fireworks*
  • Draco: Annnnnnnnnd the fetus has a penis.
  • Harry: I don't understand how I'm supposed to be feeling right now. Am I supposed to be happy?
  • Draco: I don't know. Salazar. I am NOT wearing one of those "It's a Wizard!" hats.
  • Harry: Can we leave yet?
  • Draco: Yes, thank Merlin.
  • Harry: Do we have to say goodbye?
  • Draco: You have absolutely no manners.
  • Harry: Well what the fuck am I supposed to say? Glad to hear your fetus has a cock?
  • Draco: Just shut your mouth and I will do the pleasantries for both of us, then we can go home and I'll show you what else has a cock.
  • Harry, leering: Can we do a reveal with fireworks?

Trey Parker’s thoughts on Heiman

«Parker said he was a fan of Cartman having a significant other, Heidi Turner, which showed a new side to the usually foul-mouthed, angry, fat kid. 

We don’t want her to go away,” Parker said. “But, I really liked in the end that he was now a dude stuck in a relationship.“»

You promised me that you would do anything to help me. You said that my nights spent sobbing in the dark hurt you too much to ever make you want to take away something that made me happy. So how did we get here? How could you even expect me to get any better? Every time you hit me… is that supposed to be productive? Every chance to change this loneliness to comfort, this depression to happiness, that comes around… you go and ruin it. I was ready for this. I was ready to put my everything into it, and now you’ve crushed it. And maybe I’m the idiot here for letting you do this to me.

kyungsoo’s lips appreciation for my precious birthday girl jocelyn ♡

Oppa, please.
  • Namjoon: You'll only got to listen to them when it will be dropped.
  • Y/N: Please, please, please ! I won't tell-
  • Namjoon: I said no. And you know damn well I can't do that.
  • Y/N: How are you not supposed to share when you've been teasing me with them for the past few weeks, always whistling them around the house like you always do !
  • Namjoon: I didn't do it on purpose.
  • Y/N: Aw, baby, please !
  • It's now written all over his face how hard he's trying to keep it cool and don't smile.
  • Namhjoon: I said no, Y/N. Don't act like a baby, it won't get you nowhere.
  • Y/N: But I'm your baby-
  • Namjoon: You're going anywhere with that, try harder.
  • You pout, disappointed. You thought he would let you listen to the new songs the group were working on the past few months but you thought wrong; he won't even let you in his studio anymore because "he wants it to be a surprise" and you hate surprises.
  • But just as you're about to give up, you notice how hard his eyes are trying to focus on whatever he's doing on his phone, which means he's trying to keep his composure; you still got a chance to make him change his mind. So you go for your biggest weapon, something you're sure will got him wrapped all over your pinkie.
  • Y/N: Please-
  • Namjoon: I thought I heard someone talking, maybe I'm going insane. Y/N, did you hear something ?
  • Y/N: Oppa, please~ Op-pa, jebal~ I will do everything you wi-
  • You don't have to finish your sentence when a deep groan leaves your boyfriend mouth and soon you're squealing with your legs swinging in the air. Though everything you can see is the room upside down, you know exactly where he's leading you to and he makes it clear when he slaps your butt.
  • Namjoon: Let's see what you're ready to do for it, baby~

anonymous asked:

I think I'm going to kill myself but I don't know how to tell my boyfriend that I won't be around much longer. I don't want to hurt him but I don't think I can stay here anymore

it gets better.
that’s what I am supposed to tell you, but some ambiguous and abstract wish for the future isn’t going to make you want to live because you’re hurting now. you want relief now.
but you paused.
you’re thinking about those you love, and you wrote this message, and you’re considering some sort of future because you just want to know that there is something out there that’s worth it, something that makes you worth it.
so maybe it will get better, and I hope that it will, but I don’t know, and you don’t know, and no one really knows. we just hope, and that’s all that we can really do.
so what do you tell your boyfriend, or your friends, or family, or anyone you love?
you tell them that you’re scared, and unsure, and that you’re in so much pain, and then you try your hardest to rid your mind of those demons.
if you don’t try to give yourself a future, you will regret it because life is beautiful. you just need help fighting through whatever is keeping you from seeing that.

anonymous asked:

Hi! 🤗 I wanted to ask how do you write dialogues. Like, the punctuation of the dialogues. I've translated one of my OS (one of the Marauders doing things) into English, and I want to make sure it's as perfect as possible before sending it to any beta to correct it (know any?), and I'm struggling A LOT with the dialogues. In Spanish, is super easy once you know the rules. In English, I'm going crazy because I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHERE OR HOW I'M SUPPOSED TO PUT COMMAS IN BETWEEN DIALOGUES. Help? 🙏

Hi hi hi! I’m so glad you’re asking because to be totally honest, punctuation is an easy litmus test for me; if I have doubts about the quality of the writing, I look to see if the dialogue is formatted correctly. If it isn’t, 9/10 times I’ll stop reading. SO, in conclusion, I’m happy we’re discussing this now!

1. Put a spoken sentence in double quotation marks.

“This is a motherfucking sentence.”

2. Dialogue tags (the she said/he asked/they answered parts) stay outside the quotes and get separated by a comma.

“Dialogue is easy,” Olivie said. “See how there’s a comma right there? Sometimes people use a period, but that’s just not fucking correct.”

or

Olivie advised, “Be sure to use a comma when separating the dialogue tag from the rest of the sentence, you beautiful fairy princess!”

3. If something happens before or after the dialogue, it gets its own punctuation.

Olivie screamed. “I love polka!” 

is me screaming first, and then saying I love polka; which is different from:

Olivie screamed, “I love polka!”

which is just me screaming about polka.

4. Punctuation goes inside the quotes. If a dialogue ends with an ellipsis (…) or em dash (—), don’t add extra punctuation.

“I guess I’ll just keep talking about—” she trailed off. “What the fuck was I saying?”

5. Dialogue that is quoting someone else goes inside the double quotation marks with a single quotation mark.

“Well, as Sally once said, ‘love is murder,’” Olivie declared; quite unnecessarily, as nobody had asked her to speak.

6. START A NEW PARAGRAPH WHEN THERE IS A NEW SPEAKER. This is so important, please always do this.

“Oh my god,” Sally gasped. “What the fuck?”

“I agree,” Olivie concurred, staring at the mai tai. “There’s not nearly enough small umbrellas in this mai tai.”

7. If something interrupts the dialogue, it’s still part of the same sentence, so it remains in lower case letters.

“You,” Sally began, winking outrageously, “are a bang tidy piece of ass.”

is different from:

“Hush, my gay lover,” Olivie wailed. “Where I come from, you’re DEAD!”

…and that should be enough, but let me know if I’ve missed anything!

a guy called me this morning at 3:22am (after waking me up for the 4th time knowing I had work) and admitted to me in a drunken mindset that he and his friends raped a girl and he posted it on snapchat and facebook.

anonymous asked:

I have a question that you may not be able to answer, but I'm going to ask anyway. I'm burnt out from theatre. So burnt out that if I were a slice of bread, I would be the blackest piece of charcoal. And I really don't want to be, but I don't know how to get unburnt, you know? I've just done so many shows in a row (seventeen shows back-to-back as sm and/or director plus classes), and this was just supposed to be a hobby and now I hate it. Do you have any advice for loving doing theatre again?

Take a break.

Finish out anything that can’t go on without you and take a break. Don’t do any theatre, maybe don’t even see any theatre.

Find something else: knitting, yoga, dog walking, cross fit, calligraphy, bird-watching or whatever and do that for a little. Spring clean your soul, air out your brain.

After awhile go see some theatre. See stuff friends make, see stuff that you don’t know anything about, see stuff you think you might hate, see stuff that you know will make you happy.

When people ask if you want to be involved on a project, really really think about it before you say yes. Let your default answer be “no”, make them work for a “yes”. Manage their expectations about your contributions. I know often that burnout goes hand-in-hand with people who are Doing The Most™ when they don’t need to be. There is nothing wrong with being hardworking, but pulling multiple all-nighters to finish painting the set, or fixing the props, or writing line notes because “no one else will do them” is the fastest way to burn out and give yourself a martyr complex. There is no show in the world, especially while you’re in school, that is worth that. But if you set a precedent that you’re the person who will pull triple all-nighters anytime things aren’t on schedule, people will come to expect that. It’s tough to manage, because you still want to be know for getting things done and being responsible, but you also need to take care of yourself enough to say, “we will need more people/time/money to get x/y/z done”. The only person who will always 100% of the time be looking out for you is you.

If you’re getting burnt out because you’re doing any and all projects and not stuff that actually matters to you, same thing. Be picky. Do stuff you’re passionate about, not just whatever is available.

Be picky and selfish with your time and talents. There is only one you with your skill set and abilities. If people want it, they’ve gotta work for it. Good luck friend!

“Treat your career like a bad boyfriend. Here’s the thing. Your career won’t take care of you. It won’t call you back or introduce you to its parents.Your career will openly flirt with other people while you are around. It will forget you birthday and wreck your car. Your career will blow you off if you call it too much. It’s never going to leave its wife.Your career is fucking other people and everyone knows but you. Your career will never marry you.
