i'm sure it's not the end of the world

Now that Mark is getting into music...

can we all just say a silent prayer to whatever deity you believe in (if you’re atheist, just pick one for the purposes of this exercise) and ask that Markiplier be introduced to the musical genius of Lin-Manuel Miranda

A guy I grew up with asked me "how can you have int'l women's day if gender is a social construct?" I was upset by the question mostly because I was embarrassed of how I didn't know how to reply. Maybe it's a stupid question, but clearly there's a genuine lack of understanding on my end and I'm so bummed about that because I thought I understood sex v gender v ?? Help!

while created by society, social constructs are still very real & have real influence over our daily lives. money, marriage, beauty even stop lights are all social constructs but I’m pretty sure you can’t just run a red light and use “it’s just a social construct!” as your defense. yes gender is socially constructed, it still plays a role in how we are treated & perceived by the world around us.

i have a dream that we are the last two people on earth. you watch tv and i do all the worrying. our canned food supplies are few and you burn through days like episodes of something you hate but need to see.

when i wake up, still half dreaming and stiff and uncomfortable with sleep, i look up on my phone ways to grow vegetables without soil until i hear voices of other people and realize the vegetables do not need growing.

i can worry about different things, for now:
how my ear needs re-piercing, how my arms need more muscle, how my hand carries lines across a page.

after i make breakfast i place the white part of a green onion, the part with the roots, in the water beside my avocado plant.

if the world ends, i would like to have a head start.

Honey, APH Greenland does not have an official colour scheme nor additional sketches of them. That’s just my colouring of a drawing that was in Nordics button set. It’s MY colouring, not Hima’s, and until official aph Greenland someday maybe comes out, it’s just my imagination what the colouring could be like. Also, my Greenland doesn’t go by gender pronouns. 

 Why are you all so pissed about a design that’s not even officially introduced? Himaruya may surprise you! He may also withdraw from the character entirely since the controversy, or start from a scratch and create a new one. There’s many many many countries that doesn’t have a character yet.

I’m sorry your lack of presentation in media and what your culture has have to put up with in there, but this whole series is based around stereotypes. You can’t just incriminate a single, simple Japanese man for creating a comedy series. Just, leave him alone, he can’t change how the world is.

As a person of culture, what about making content yourself? A series based on native Americans and their lives. Then you can be sure it’s not racist or stupid or whatever. Start it and make it big, change the world yourself. Don’t wait others to do it for you. You have the advantage as a person who knows their stuff.

Storytime...

Something amazing happened to me today.

If you have never been bottom-of-the-barrel broke for a decent length of time then you cannot truly understand that horrible feeling when the cashier tells you that you can’t use your loyalty points because the server is down. That sick sinking feeling that happens as you come to the realization that you have to pay full price when you were counting on having the extra $5 the points would have saved you to buy the meat for dinner. That if you want to eat now you won’t later or if you want to eat later you can’t eat now.

I experienced this feeling again today at the coffee shop. I only ordered a small coffee and a ham and cheese croissant. It’s all I could afford if I used the points I’d saved up to pay for the coffee. My total was only $10.90 but I had been counting on using my points to bring it down to $6. Then she told me the system was down.

Everything stopped. My heart sank and suddenly began racing 100ks an hour at the same time and I started shaking. In the space of about four seconds I thought several things at once.

“Do I say leave the coffee? The food is more vital than the caffeine”

“Do I just leave both? I need to buy the stuff for dinner tonight and I have to get to therapy tomorrow”

“Maybe I can borrow from Mum to do dinner and therapy”

“Oh god! They probably think I’m just angling for free stuff!”

“Fuck Georgia! Just pay by card and pray you make it to next week on what’s left”

“I’m going to throw up”

“Tell them it’s fine and pass your card over for fucks sake!”

So I take out my card and start to hand it over. I’m trying to put on a brave face but clearly I didn’t do much of a job of it. The cashier looks like a deer in headlights. She doesn’t know how to handle this kind of thing. She immediately tries to reassure me.

Then it happens.

I hear a gruff voice behind me ask,

“How much does she need?”

I turn and see the older lady who came in behind me and let me go ahead of her in the queue opening her wallet and looking at the cashier.

I’m still desperately trying to convince both women that it’s fine and I’ll pay but they don’t seem to hear me. By now I’m shaking and also crying. I can tell both women are uncomfortable so I desperately try to get myself under control. It’s not working. In the madness the cashier puts through the point discount and the Gruff Older Lady pays for my order. Now not only do I still have the $5 I was counting on from my points I have the other $6 I would have paid for my coffee too.

I move off to the side still loosing my shit and crying (embarrassingly) in a coffee shop, as the cashier takes Gruff Older Lady’s order and she pays and we all wait for our orders.

The whole shop has been watching this and not said a word. I think (it’s something of a blur) I may have hugged her. And I think it made her even more uncomfortable. Anyway, I’m still trying to get myself under control. Another patron comes over and asks if I’m ok and I tell her what’s just happened and she smiles and calmly chats to me till I’m calm and her order is called. She wishes me well and leaves.

My order is then called at the same time as Gruff Older Lady. I can barely look her in the eye. I’m so embarrassed. But I’m also so incredibly grateful so I look up and give a wobbly smile and thank her again as we put the lids on our coffees. She asks if I’m short of money and I admit that I am but I’m mostly coping without looking up from the counter.
Next thing I know she is opening her wallet again and pushing the last of her cash, $30, into my hands. I try to refuse and tell her she doesn’t have to do that, I’m ok. Again the tears threaten.

“Don’t you cry again!”

She tells me in that same gruff voice she used at the counter.

“You’ll set me off! Just take it! I know what it’s like to be where you are. I’ve been there myself. I’m a bit flush this week so I can afford to do this.”

I can do nothing but stare at my shaking hand now holding $30 and thank her profusely while trying not to cry on her. She simply gives me a small smile and murmurs,

“I’ve done my kind thing for the day.”

And leaves before I can say another word.

It’s taken me an hour to write this and I’m still shaken and overwhelmed.

This woman was so kind. It wasn’t the stereotypical warm, beneficent old woman with a big hug and a cheery smile. She was real and my gratitude seemed to make her uncomfortable. Like she hadn’t realized how big of an impact she would have when she decided to do what she did. She was gruff and awkward and that is the only thing that has me convinced that this really happened and I didn’t dream it.

Well, that and the lasting embarrassment from having had such a major breakdown in a public place.

I have now had breakfast and I’ll use the extra $30 for food. And it’s all thanks to that incredibly kind Gruff Older Lady.

I don’t know how to end this except to say again even though I am sure she’ll never see this…

Thank you. Paying for my breakfast the way you did has had a far bigger impact than I think you will ever know.

Is Himchan not dying his hair for this comeback? He said he’d be the color representative, but so far, I’ve seen no blue haired Himchan. I’m assuming nobody saw his red hair until the Wake Me Up teasers deopped? (I wasn’t present for the Rose comeback. Bleu will be my first comeback.) I’m not sure how long the MV making process is in the KPOP world, but if they’re coming back towards the end of August, would the MV have been shot already? Or is that exactly what they’re doing now, judging by Daehyun’s now purple hair? That short amount of time for an MV? I know things are fast in the KPOP industry, but damn…

okay i'm not sure if you did this on purpose, and if you did more power to you, but i think it's really cool how in the anime yuri is twenty three when he falls in love with victor and in umfbamha it's victor who falls hard at twenty three. this could probably mean nothing i just think it's cool haha XD great job with the first chapter btws!

It was on purpose! Viktor technically sees Yuuri skating at Rostelecom when he is 22 but I pushed the end of the chapter till then end of March at Worlds when he was 23 so I could do the 23/23 comparison :D

the thing about gcses is reassuring but kinda irritating bc we have so much pressure to do well?? and most of us this year did do well and the fact that they "don't matter" can be a bit of a kick in the teeth, esp for us lot that stressed to the point of breakdowns and ik that my mental and physical health took such a downturn bc of gcses it's just not fair lmao and i'm sure many classes of '16-17 would agree w me lmao (i got mine a few weeks ago btw i'm about to start sixth form, wish me luck!)

Oh I agree the stress is horrific they were for me too and I got the grades as I put in all that stress. What I meant was mucking up your GCSEs is not the end of the world you can still do what you want its just a lot harder than if you got the grades

so i saw merle's arm just scuttling around the other day?? i could hear him whispering to it from the end of the hall directing it into a room and when it came out it had some cd's in its branches. when merle saw that i had seen he gave me an intense stare and made a shushing gesture with both his flesh arm and his plant arm. i am terrified about what will happen if he finds out i sent this but i have to tell someone. i'm pretty sure he's training his arm to be a thief and the world must know

I'm sorry if this is rude, but I keep seeing this post (150629305351) and I'm so confused! I don't understand why everyone says oh at the end, and I'm sure it's just me being dense, but if you wouldn't mind a little explanation, I'd be grateful!

Oh this old thing !

The joke is that everyone automatically assumed, even adrien himself and also Nino, that Adrien was the prince. So when it was revealed quite suddenly that Adrien was Nino’s servant and that NINO was the prince everyone was like “Oh, lol” because they were thinking of him in the context of their own world where he is a super handsome rich famous guy, and even nino was like “Lmao okay wasnt expecting it to be me”

Now I know that Clarke has always had a white savior mindset but after tonight's episode, it's starting to become almost unbearable. I'm a hardcore bellarke shipper but honestly? If Bellamy ended up with someone else I wouldn't be all THAT upset. I'll think I'll join the bellamy x Gaia crackship bc Clarke is getting to be just too much

Step back a bit. 

The flame is a computer chip. The computer chip was designed by someone from space. In space. Sure they’re treating it like it’s holy, but it’s still a computer chip. The nightblood is computer blood. Becca was a scientist… the same scientist who ENDED THE FUCKING WORLD. And let’s be honest, not being able to stop fighting a war to save as many people as possible because you’re squabbling over who has dominance is ACTUALLY not only stupid it is actually barbaric, so for all Roan called her on thinking they were barbarians.

JUST FUCKING STOP BEING BARBARIANS.

No?

You think they’ve got the right idea to go to war instead of working together? You think the Hunger Games concept to win the bunker is CIVILIZED? Rethink the horror you feel from the title “white savior” and think about which plan will cause the least death. And the most democratic solution. It’s HORRIBLE for Clarke, but the best for the stupid grounders. Durr durr we want to chop everyone up with swords because blood must have blood rather than try to save as many of our people as we can. We’re so noble. Durr.

Clarke also has NOT always had a white savior mindset. Clarke dug right in and took care of people with her own two hands before. It was LXa who taught her she was a princess who should tell everyone what to do. Bellamy and the delinquents called her a princess and she proved she was not. 

And Gaia has not proved herself to be anything other than a zealot yet. I’m sticking with Clarke.
