i just hate english so much

anonymous asked:

Have u been watching all the interviews lately?... im so sad they’re so unmeaningful and repetitive... i hope ellen asks some good questions or else im gonna flip

Yes I have!! Honestly, same. Some of the questions are really undermining them as humans and artists. BTS are so much more than just a ‘boy band’ they’re a group of young, intelligent, caring, loving and handsome men who are out there using their platform to speak words for themselves and those who don’t have a voice to do so. No interview so far has asked them solely about their music and only the same old ‘will you be making an album in English’ and I hate that damned question. Why do they as South Koreans need to please the Western market with an English album when they’re comfortable in using their own language to express their messages? Why do they need them to conform to Western tastes when we can adapt to them, which quite frankly we have done for this whole time - we’ve been able to love them so far without an English album, so why does that need to change when people will continue to love them for their music in Korean? Another thing is that the fact that people are asking for English albums are really just proving how they’re separating music when music is an international language (if that makes any sense at all?). 

They haven’t even fucking asked them about the UNICEF Campaign that they’re doing yet, instead they’re asking pretty irrelevant questions like ‘celebrity crushes’. Why don’t they actually ask about something that is meaningful and important like UNICEF, and how this campaign is spreading positivity and helping to End Violence? Those are the things I want to hear, I don’t really want to know about who they want to see at the AMAs because they’re BTS, we should know by now that they’re grateful people who are so open to music that they’re happy to basically see everyone there. The questions are ridiculously repetitive and I’m so disappointed in those questions, because as ‘intellectuals’ they should be asking other intellectuals questions that are important and meaningful. Bangtan aren’t showing their full intelligence with these sort of questions. 

I’m really hoping Ellen asks good questions that allows them to talk about their passion freely ~

Edit: Can I just add that they don’t owe you guys anything, they’ve got this far and made it there with their music in Korean, so don’t think that they suddenly owe you shit because they’re in the US and should make pure English songs. They’re in America for the pure reason that they’re talented and passionate about what they do. Stop trying to change them to fit to your ‘standards’.

Sanders Sides as Things my APLang Teacher has Said

Patton: The other day I asked my boyfriend what he likes about me and he said he likes how much I love our dogs, even if it’s annoying

Roman: [In reference to reading The Crucible aloud in class] I’ll be reading for 5 of the roles in this act, not because y’all suck at reading, but because I’m a better actor than all of you :)

Logan: There’s about a 90% chance that I’m done with all of you right now. The other 10% is amusement at the fact that we’re only 3 weeks in and I’ve already had an ‘I’m done with you’ moment

Virgil: Can we not talk about death while I’m having an existential crisis? I don't need that in my brain when I’m already thinking about how all of us are just meaningless particles floating in space

You can't deny this about Floriana Lima

All this year people has been disrespectful to Floriana Lima. Questioning her casting process, her ethnicity, insulting her skin color and criticizing her private life (I’m not going to get into that discussion again). 

Despite of all that, SHE NEVER, EVER!!! has been rude to fans, she has never made fun of them, she is always serving the fans nicely with that characteristic smile and she cares about the LGBTQ fans, unlike other cast members who have been treated much better than her (Jeremy and Melissa). 

All this kindness and gentleness of her, after all that bullying she has experied, makes me appreciate her, admire her, protect her and love her even more. Thanks for include Floriana Lima as SANVERS 50%. We are so lucky to have her. 

Teacher (M)

Plot: Maybe asking your Korean teacher for help wasn’t such a bad idea. Good grades weren’t the only thing you were going to achieve from that.

Pairing: Teacher! Jung Hoseok x Student! reader

Genre: Smut

Warnings: Oral (receiving), Moaning denial, just full-on hardcore Jung Hoseok the sexy beast

Note: This is probably the first time I’m actually posting smut. It took me quite a while to write, considering it was very long, and I need to be in a certain mood for it. Thank you to my friend for giving me this idea. Please forgive me if there are any errors, english isn’t my first language. 3657 Words

P.S. You are 19 in this, and Hoseok is 25. I do not support all that underage sex stuff. Everything here is legal (wrong – please don’t fuck your teacher no matter how hot he is – but legal).

Korean Literature was probably your least favorite subject. You hated just everything about it – well – excluding the teacher. He always greeted you with a smile, asked you if you wanted help. You were the only foreigner in the class, after all. He gave you so much special attention, and you wouldn’t mind it at all. Unfortunately, that didn’t change your view on the subject. No matter how hard you tried, you always got a low grade.

“Okay students, remember we have a test on the new poem this Friday,” His voice echoed through your ears, breaking you out of your trance.

There was a solemn look on your face, while you stared out the window. Your eyes stayed on the uniformed kids flooding out of the school gates, while your nail dug under the staple holding your latest spelling test together.

5 out of 10. It was better than the last one.

No matter how bad it got, you always had this urge to try. You always wanted to keep studying for a higher score, but you just never seemed to understand everything that was thrown at you. It was like everything registered into your brain, but it never stayed – it disappeared, unlike your determination to do well.

As your eyes flickered over to the teacher, a nervous feeling settled in your chest. You now stayed after school for that exact reason. A few days ago, Hoseok had offered to help tutor you for an hour everyday until the test. It had been at least a week since he started, and you could safely say that you were getting better.

“Are you ready to start?”

Yuuri’s English

So in my mind, Yuuri speaks ridiculously good English. And although his accent would probably never fade entirely, it’s likely very faint and neutral. This comes about from Yuuri just being, well, Yuuri. Yuuri hates standing out too much, right, so I firmly believe that he would practice his pronunciation as much as possible, until people could almost mistake him from actually originating from Detroit. 

That boy has probably swallowed a grammar text book too, embarrassed when people giggled his first week when he made a little mistake here and there. Of course over speaking it solidly for four years, in a less natural way, he knows his grammar rules better than some native speakers. International reporters love him because of this (none of the language barrier awkwardness). 

He’s also 100% better at the language than Viktor is. Although we know he’s fluent, there’s clearly going to be a difference between somebody who has lived in an English speaking country for years, and someone who isn’t using it constantly. I can totally see Viktor forgetting really weird words every now and then like ‘elephant’ or something, and trying to describe it with odd terms such as ‘giant horse with long nose’ until Yuuri supplies what he was trying to say.

Although this doesn’t say that much, I will note that Yuuri is dubbed with an American accent whereas pretty much everyone else who doesn’t live abroad carries their native ones, so it kind of confirms my thinking a little? 

So when isn’t Yuuri so great? 

  • When he’s sleepy 

If Viktor ever tries to ask him something when he’s on the verge of sleep/just waking up, Yuuri will respond with either a mumble, or very fast Japanese because he hasn’t registered where exactly he is. Viktor finds this adorable and just tucks him back in.  

  • When he’s nervous 

AKA why not so many people internationally know that Yuuri is so great with the language. When his anxiety peaks before competitions, Yuuri kind of forgets all the pronunciation notes he’s forced himself to remember and such, and on occasion gets mixed up. Sometimes he has to talk very slowly to remember the next words so everyone kind of assumes he’s very serious. 

  • Essentially when he’s emotionally overwhelmed 

I believe this to essentially be canon. Remember this in episode five?

A lot of the time I noticed that Yuuri pronounces Viktor’s name with a hard ‘r’, but in this scene he says it with more of a ‘ru’ sound which is closer to how you’d write it in Japanese (at least, I’m mostly sure about that. I’m not Japanese.). And whilst I’m pretty sure he also says it like this a few other times, I find happy Yuuri not controlling his pronunciation very sweet. 

Also sad and angry Yuuri. Angry Yuuri can hardly even be understood when he’s ranting (he’s also too angry to care about this anyway).

  • When he’s drunk 

This is actually canon! Reports from the museum all say that Yuuri gets very Kyushu accent when he’s intoxicate. Also, may I remind you of “BE MY COACH, VIKTORRRRRRRRRRRR!” 

  • during sex   

On a totally relevant side note, we know that Yuuri can dance hip hop well, so humour me in my headcanon that this boy can rap. Maybe not freestyle, but he can certainly recite some popular verses. It’s probably Phichit’s fault. 

These are the notes i took for my English class.

anonymous asked:

Is your hate for the term 'British' purely because of the British Empire and other undesirable things done under the term? What if someone referred to themselves as British relating to the 'British Isles' as where they come from? imo 'British' (if we ignore the history connected to it) just sounds better than 'English', or just feels better to say. I dont know, maybe it's because I was never taught about 'British' history (empire etc) but I did end up associating 'English' with racist hooligans.

I hate the term British because it is synonymous with English. I’ve never been called British with the thought that I’m from Scotland, they’ve always assumed the entire fucking island is England.

I’ve never identified as British. I correct people immediately when they refer to me as it because with the term ‘British’ it carries so much connotation of empire and the queen and everything that I don’t want to be apart of.

The thing is though that I won’t call anyone else British either. If you’re from England, you’re English. Wales, Welsh. Northern Ireland, northern Irish (until you unify.)

Well,I don’t know how to use tumblr, but, I wanna tell you something.

Hi~! in first place, i don’t speak inglish, I’m trying to. 

(Plus, I wanted send you this before, but, my last count don’t work, so I erase that :’c )

I knew you art when you worked in the story about Peaper Jam and Fresh    (That then you do the first “Freshpeaper” :3 ) , then, i’m start to seach you, it be hard to me, Afternoon three days, finally, I found you tumblr, and I remember I was like: “Ohh no, its all in inglish! :’c “ that’s beacuse, before know you, the inglish was a rock in my shoes, and I hated xD even so, I read the stories, the things you’ll create 2 weeks afther and all before. And, slowly, i’m start to understend!! Even my mom was surpriced Hahah, you help me to like english too much, and that wasen’t all!! To understend better Jammy and Fresh histori , i’m start to order they, like “time line” and, well, thats be Soooo hard, at the same time I was arranging, you stand creating.                             In first place, I wanna just order that Story, but even if others don’t have sentence for me, they are cool too, and I think “Well, why not? i’m gonna order all her draws! cause their are amazing!” Aaaaand here comes my best Breaking-Brain-Ever, cause you have a lot crazy ideas! XD and that is great! but i’m didn’t know how to do them “time line”, again, i’m start to read all the asks of others, an then I understood beter, too beter.                                         I’m notice, one day, when I was end finally! that you draw a LOOOOT  of draws every day, that only makes me feel special, you work was soo ofthen, and then I felt you’re more than amazing, ¿awesome? I dont know, just Wooah.      Every day, start to be an habit visit you tumblr to order new draws, start to look more their faces, your own stile, you inpired me! For 2 years i had “Pain tool sai” in my computer, and  I nerver use to nothing, but, in dicember, of last year i’m start! and I like :3 making my own caracters, chibis, was soo cool.                I like a lot things of you do, more specifically, the faces and expressions you make, or you line art, and the design of your caracters, and others factors, you humor XD and how, “WOAHHH” is for me little things then others maybe don’t care  to much, like you know inglish, french, and well, the last was.. uh ¿arabian?

Yup, 2.222 pictures only yours :’D and couting, Love U~!  


JK Rowling gets so much hate for lack of racial representation in Fantastic Beasts, but from what I’ve seen it’s mostly non-British people who complain about it. You do realise that JKR is English, as am I, and we don’t get told anything at all about American history? Like ever? She could have researched, but that doesn’t mean she gets to change the entire cast just for you. You guys wouldn’t be happy if she did anyway. Stop thinking you’re entitled to say who to cast in movies based on HER books and HER world.

Summary: Dan tells his mother about Phil. (a 2009 fic)

[read on AO3]

“The boy again?” Dan’s mum asks.

His stomach drops. His posture is suddenly straight as a pin. His shoulders are tense. His jaw clenches. He’s a cornered animal ready for a fight.

She glances at him and in a moment she reads that, then just rolls her eyes. “Oh, fine. Keep your secrets.”

Request ⇾ Hi I was wondering if u could do a Richie x reader for me where Richie and the reader have the same personality but they hate each other. Little by little tho they start growing feelings but the both deny it.u can do ur own thing after that xxxx love u ♥️🎈

Warnings ⇾ nothing lmao I don’t think

A/N ⇾ no offence but this is the biggest pile of bollocks I’ve ever written, I’m tried and groggy and I’m so sorry! I hope it’s alright!


Everyone knew that Y/N was practically the female version of Richie. Not only did they both swear like a sailor and say crude jokes that would even have Stan blushing - who was rather immune to their foul mouths by now - their mannerisms were also so alike. Every person has their own little habits and customs that they do without even realising it, it’s something that comes naturally to them, it’s like second nature. It’s sometimes in the form of little sayings or just little actions, that other people notice but the person doing them themselves may not, well, Richie and Y/N were, almost, twins. Richie would always fiddle with his hands when he felt nervous, so would Y/N, he would always push up his glasses when he felt flustered, so would Y/N, he would chew at his nails before entering a class that caused him to feel anxious, so would Y/N. Their characters, too, were so similar. They could both be described as ‘outgoing, flirtatious and slightly annoying’ and were usually always categorised together for that exact reason. It was a mystery to anyone why they didn’t get along.

Their relationship started off with the two hating each other strongly. Neither would mutter a word to the other unless it had some sort of menacing threat involved. Neither would go out with the Losers if the other were already there. Neither would even call each other their friend, they were simply acquaintances, at best. However, this slowly changed and began morphing into a strange love-hate relationship the moment they were paired together for an English project. It was worth half of their overall grade, so despite how much the other wanted to object, they knew it would only make it worse.

Y/N sighed before swallowing her pride and taking a deep breath, “Listen, I know that you and I don’t see eye to eye–”

“You can say that again.” Richie interrupted.

“I know we don’t see eye to eye,” she continued, ignoring the boy’s comment, “so, to make this easier on both of us, why don’t we just do the stupid project and never speak to each other again. How does that sound? Deal?”

“Fine. Deal.” He agreed.

After that, their relationship definitely began blossoming. It took the two a while to start getting along, because they were both stuck in the mind set that the other was, more or less, Satan’s spawn. After a while, Richie realised that Y/N wasn’t all that bad, he’d just jumped to conclusions. And Y/N realised Richie wasn’t all that bad either, she had just listened to rumours instead of getting to know the boy for herself. However, the two both also had very big ego’s and could not force themselves to apologise, not for the life of them, not for how much they desperately wanted to.

It was so frustrating for the others around them, who knew clearly that the two would get along so well if they’d just put their pride aside, for one moment, and apologise. But none of the Losers, not even Bill who still had a little bit of hope, thought that would ever happen. The idea that vampires were real was easier to believe than the two Trashmouth’s getting along. That was until they saw Y/N and Richie holding hands one day as they walked into school together. To say the Losers were shocked would be such an understatement, it could even be classed as a lie. They were dumbfounded and at such a loss for words.

See, what had happened was, while at the Library the weekend prior, the two had shared an inexperienced kiss. One that was provoked by angst and anger, granted, but still a kiss all the same. Y/N had tried telling Richie how she felt, begrudgingly, and he almost upright laughed at her confession despite how much he wanted to tell her that her feelings were reciprocated. Y/N had said that he was selfish and rude and that even when she had tried to pour her heart out to him, he couldn’t get over himself and just be nice, not even for thirty seconds. She also added that his over exaggerated ego was to cover up for the fact he lacked in other departments. Richie told Y/N that that was ridiculous and he wasn’t over compensating for anything! He also told her she was the selfish one and that she couldn’t take a joke. The two sat glaring at one another in the Library before Richie rolled his eyes and leaned across the table, engulfing Y/N in a startling kiss.

After sharing a sloppy and messy kiss, they laughed over how silly they had been just moments before and that was how the two infamous Trashmouth’s became two infamous Trashmouth’s, finally, in a relationship.

“I teach English at a community college in Queens. I love the job, but I hate grading papers. I’d prefer to just have one continuous discussion about Shakespeare. I envy the math teachers who can just put their tests through a Scantron machine. Placing value on a student’s writing is much more nuanced and complicated. What if they have great ideas but their English language skills aren’t as developed? What if English is their second language? What if they’ve faced major challenges in life? Do I ignore those things? Or do I consider context while grading? I want to set high standards and prepare my students for what comes next. But so many of them already have a self-defeating attitude. And I don’t want to discourage them any further.”

“Those ballet dancers are annoying,” Natsu said, slicking his hair back with some gel. After a long workout, his hair was greasy and he didn’t want anything to do with it. And taking a shower was not optional as the boys swim team was in the only remaining ones. He did not want to see any guys in speedos, much less nothing at all.

“I hear ya. They can be real prisses,” Gray said as he smoothed his shirt, then started to unbutton it as usual. He took it off and stuffed it in his gym bag, and Natsu sighed at the action. Being best friends had it’s downfalls such as that, but they agreed on most things.

As the two walked outside the gym to drive back to their apartments, Natsu spotted something strange.

A girl with a long blonde ponytail and her ballet uniform arguing with some guy in gym shorts and a wife beater. The guy wore a snapback on his head, and his face was prettier than most guys’. But the way he acted was far from handsome.

It was odd seeing as gorgeous as a girl as she get so angry. By the tone of her voice and the pointing finger in his face, he had done something wrong. The guy was not backing down, though, and with a smirk on his face he stared at the girl’s chest.

It only made her angrier, and she slapped him on the cheek, leaving a red mark. The guy rubbed it and then began arguing back. Natsu stared, but knew that she had it handled. If she had just slapped him, she might as well punch him too.

Fool Me Once

read on ao3

I’m back from my brief hiatus with a fic that absolutely no one asked for! I hope you enjoy it!

Andrew had lived in Baltimore back when he lived with the Stevensons. Baltimore was an ugly city, full of run-down factories and towns that had bigger gangs than budgets, side by side with stadiums and news stations and hotels.

Gentrification, Andrew’s word of the week, was terribly appropriate here.

Gillian Stevenson was a teacher who thought strongly about everything. She was either with you or against you. Unfortunately for the school board, she wasn’t with them.

Andrew would head to her classroom once the dismissal bell rang, listen to her complain as he helped her clean up after her students, and hopefully be given a slice of whatever cake she was pairing with her wine to dull the agony of the impending parent-teacher conferences.

He liked Gill.

Markus Stevenson was a gym teacher Gill had met at one of her old teaching jobs. Markus had been a football player in college and seeing a borderline malnourished child on his doorstep made him want to encourage Andrew to find a passion in sports.

He supposed Markus could be worse.
