i've seem to have lost them

anonymous asked:

Hello. So, I have a mutt my family rescued from a shelter, and he's been with us for almost two years. He's an amazing dog, but he runs away. A lot. And by a lot, i mean that we've all lost count of how many times he's bolted out the door. There have been several occasions where he was almost hurt, or could have been killed. I worry about him all the time, we all do. I've done research, but still can't find a solution or a reason for his behavior. He seems to think its a game. Any advice?

Dogs do things that benefit them. So why is he running outside? What does he get from it that he doesn’t get otherwise? Perhaps he enjoys the exercise and/or the attention? At some point he was indirectly rewarded, whether it was just by getting to run, smell his favorite tree, chase a squirrel, or visit the neighbor. Keeping him exercised and stimulated will help a lot, but overall you will need to train him to wait somewhere while you open the door. 

This can be a rug, couch, bed, or anything that can be noticeably different on the floor. You just need to teach him to wait at his “place”. Every time you reach to open the door and he gets up, put him back in his place. This isn’t going to work immediately, training is always done in baby steps. 

First you’ll have to train him what it means to go to his place, then you can move onto having him stay in that place while you walk around. Always return with a treat or praise when you give a stay command. Never call a dog out of a stay as the reward, because then you’ll have a dog that is spring loaded waiting to be called. Now that the dog knows where his place is, and how to wait there, you move on to jiggling the door handle (baby steps!) If he gets up, just give his place command again, and retry. If he lets you jiggle the handle and stays put, walk to him and give him the reward. Once you’re finally able to open the door with him staying put, you can move onto someone knocking from the other side.

It will take a long time, don’t expect this to work in a day. If all else fails, put him away before you open the door 🤷

The time stamp on the surveillance footage after all the citizenz of Mt. Weather have died is 8:24:20:55:37. August 24 8:55 (37 seconds) PM. This doesn’t seem to mean much right? Except….the date. August 24 is a pretty significant date in history.

August 24 is believed to be the day of the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius. The first place devastated by this event was the city of Herculaneum. While many of the citizens tried to escape to Pompeii. Those who had remained in Herculaneum died by burning or asphyxiation, much like the citizens of Mt. Weather. 

The people in Pompeii that had decided to hole up and try to ride out the explosion, were killed the following morning when a cloud of toxic gas came into the city. We could consider Emerson to be like the people of Herculaneum that escaped to Pompeii as he didn’t die along with his people, but later suffered a similar fate to theirs. (What the flame did to him was very similar to what happened to the people in Mt. Weather)

August 24-25 79 AD is the day that Herculaneum and Pompeii became lost civilizations

Thousands of years later it would be the day another civilization, Mt. Weather, was wiped from the earth.

hey, dark! i've been going through a breakup recently... any advice on how to get over it?

“Self worth is not determined by who you are, or are not with. Never feel like you have lost a piece of your own worth because someone left you, or you left them. It is the way of the world, it is natural to lose affection towards someone, as it is a pathway to gaining affection towards another. However, keep in mind that getting over a breakup takes time and patience. If things don’t seem to get better with time, remember that you can always turn to friends, family, or even a mental health professional for support. There are still a few steps that can be taken in order to get over the pain faster.

1. Keep your distance. Even if you and your ex have decided to stay friends, break away completely from each other right after the breakup. This means not seeing each other, not being around his/her family members, no phone calls, no e-mails, no text messages, no Facebook, and no IMs. You don’t have to have stop talking forever, but you do need to cut all communication for as long as it takes to get completely over your ex.

2. Organize your space. A breakup can signify a new beginning. Therefore, cleaning and organizing your personal space will leave you feeling refreshed and prepared for the new things to come. A mess can be overwhelming and depressing, and will just add to your stress level. Keeping busy with tidying your space doesn’t require a lot of brain power, but it does require just enough focus to keep you from recycling pain. 

3. Remove painful memory triggers. There are all kinds of things that remind you of your ex––a song, a smell, a sound, a place. Having these items around can make it harder for you to recover from a breakup. Remove all of the things that make your heart ache or your stomach turn. It can work wonders to clear your space of all these triggers.

4. Get out and do things. After a relationship ends, it is okay to have some time to yourself at home. Just make sure that you get back out in the world after you have processed your feelings. Make plans, go out with your friends, and have fun! It might seem awkward at first, but it will get easier and it will help you to feel better. Getting out and doing things is also important because you need to grow and maintain your social network after a breakup. Doing so will help you to move on with your life.

5. Beware of rebound relationships. Often people will quickly enter a new relationship following a breakup; this type of relationship is called a rebound relationship. Rebounding may be common, but it is not always a good idea. When you enter into a relationship too soon after breaking up with someone, you may be masking your negative emotions with the excitement of a new relationship. If that new relationship does not work out, you may have to deal with the pain of two breakups at once. Consider remaining single until you have fully processed your emotions and gotten over the breakup.

6. Know that the pain you are feeling is normal. After a breakup, it is normal to feel sad, angry, frightened, and other emotions as well. You might be worried that you will end up alone or that you won’t be happy again. Just remind yourself that it is normal to feel this way after a breakup and that you need to feel these emotions in order to move on.”

Hi Victoria. I've been dealing with a lot of mental health issues lately and recently started medication. However, it seems that both on and off the medication, writing and reading don't come as naturally as they used to anymore. They've been passions for my entire life and I feel like I'm nothing without them. I don't see a life without them, esp writing, worth living. I'm not sure what to do. Writing and reading are the only things that have kept me going and I feel I've lost them.

I’m not a psychologist or doctor so I can’t really give advice on this, but as far as I know, medication isn’t supposed to drastically alter you like this, and you should talk to your doctor about adjusting your prescription to maintain your quality of life.

I am having a lot of OC feels lately, but I cannot seem to /fic/ about them, and every time I want to just write a headcanon or comment post I stop myself because, idk, part of my brain feels like I need to make proper essays or something? 

like, brains are fucked up who needs an essay? I just want to cry about how pretty my characters are, why will my brain not cooperate? 

also facebook had to remind me that I used it to upload my Erana screenshots two years ago the other day so now I”m like

I had so many ideas for her and Blackwall, and I was so invested in her story, and I loved the potential of the characters if not the reality of the game itself, but I never did anything with them

and now I’m sad?

also I really want to make a post about romantic subtext and video games and why I like Reyes since I finally played Kadara over since Maia was not at all cooperative the first time?

but still

sad seems to be winning

I want to talk about Adelaide and Starkhaven and Erana and the Chargers and Maia’s laugh and all my stupid otp squeaks over the years and I just got nothing :P

ameliahcrowley  asked:

I just wanted to say *Thank You* for pointing out that Wanda actually *saved* more lives than were lost. It's been driving me a little crazy that all the people on the ground were apparently less significant than a much smaller group of dignitaries. Although I've kind of subtitled this movie "Wherein no-one can do maths except maybe Cap" anyway, since the rest of them seem incapable of recognising that "Saved most" is better than "Lost all".

EXACTLY.

a.  Why were the Avengers in Lagos in the first place?  Because Brock and his back up dancers were trying to steal a virus that could be used as a bioweapon.  Basically a biological WMD. 

b.  Now, yes, it can be argued that SOME oversight would have ensured that the Avengers had help and cooperation from the local authorities.  This makes sense, since the team going in isn’t exactly your standard black ops RL world team, considering the powers and abilities of some of its members.  I would note security concerns because it’s entirely possible there could be someone compromised on the local side, who could give Brock and crew warning but it would make sense for the Avengers to at least have SOME local and trusted liaison aiding them. 

c.  Wanda’s situation was impossible and I’d say there’s a lot of extenuating circumstances there.  Realistically, nobody, not even Cap, could have stopped Brock from suicide-bombing himself in that marketplace.  Wanda did what she could - using her considerable abilities - to prevent the deaths of hundreds more people.  That her inexperience DID lead to collateral damage is regrettable but 11-odd deaths against hundreds?  

Also, 11-odd deaths, plus the deaths in that research facility versus the potential thousands/millions who could have died if Brock managed to get the virus to someone who’d use it? 

Obviously I’m not saying that the deaths of those people are meaningless and definitely reparations are in order, but it’s not fair to punish Wanda - who acted in the best possible way to save the most lives possible, given her abilities and the impossible circumstances - which couldn’t have been achieved by any other Avenger.   

What we got in Civil War, again, was pretty much a great case of two sides on extreme ends. 

- Yes, the Avengers do need to be held accountable and answerable to the people they are trying to protect. 

- Yes, the Avengers shouldn’t be hindered in taking action when needed or be used as political pawns.  Especially when the entire body of world governments have already been shown to be flawed, have their own political agendas and could potentially be compromised by HYDRA or other enemy groups. 

The great thing about this movie is that the reason why Zemo was required as a villain was that he kept pushing events so fast that both sides never had a chance to sit down and reach a compromise.  I’m pretty sure that Tony, once he’d had a chance to sort out through his own guilt, would have realized that buddying up to General “Epic Hulk Fuck Up” Ross was a bad idea.  I’m also pretty sure Steve, had he not been pushed into protecting Bucky, would have been happy to reach a more reasonable compromise. 

Also, I’d like to point out that the order given for Bucky Barnes was shoot to kill. Without trial, without further investigation other than grainy camera footage, in a universe where we already know sophisticated face morphing/disguise tech exists.  Yeah, let’s call Steve selfish for at least wanting to find out what the hell exactly happened to his best friend, especially when he’s aware that Bucky could have fallen into the wrong hands again and could have been used as a weapon against his will one more time.

Hello! So I was browsing my dashboard, and that long and wonderful 616 Tony post popped up and just whacked me over the head with how much I still don't know. Getting a jump into Marvel is proving difficult with Marvel's tendency to weave everything together so I constantly feel lost. Can you rec any good arcs or series to get me started right? I've read a few one-offs that seemed safe, Winter Soldier, Death of the Stacys, stuff like that. But I especially want some Tony. Any Recs? Thanks!!

(also paging other users who asked the same question lately: @sluttysuperheroes @kindaoffkilter @spacejosten @sacrificeplay @mystreetnameisstacy @wirewolf616 @thisisanatattack @purplecastles – and any others i may have missed! i’m so sorry for the wait!)

hey there! i have a bunch of information posted on my IRON MAN COMIC RECS tag. feel free to go through them. these may be especially helpful:

to sum up:

  • if you don’t feel like going all the way back to the beginning, but still want to get a feel for pre-civil war era tony, then iron man v3 is the way to go
  • “extremis” (2005, iron man v4 #1-6) is the usual gateway into civil war, and the last big iron man reboot that i personally enjoyed
  • the most recent reboots are all-new all-different iron man (currently in its 2nd major arc) and international iron man (currently in its 1st major arc), both written by brian michael bendis. i was actually enjoying international iron man, and the tony characterization etc in the 2nd ANAD iron man arc was an improvement over the 1st. still, definitely not the best 616 tony intro. definitely definitely not (and i personally just dropped both of those titles because they feed into the “civil war 2″ event, also written by bendis, and as of issue #2, i want to have nothing to do with it)

iron man vol. 1 must-reads:

  • everything
  • regarding childhood basics: issues #285-288, #300, #313, #318
  • regarding the alcoholism: #120-128 (”demon in a bottle,” including build-up issues), #162-182 (”deliverance,” including build-up issues). issues regarding childhood are also relevant
  • regarding “armor wars”: #225-232

my two favorite self-contained iron man v3 things:

  • issue #50, also known as the one with tony stark and the mute little girl oh my god oh my GOD
  • issues #62-63, also known as the v3 christmas story also ft. RUMIKO FUJIKAWA, MY ACTUAL FAVORITE IRON MAN LADY
  • (actually check out all of the issues with rumiko fujikawa appearances)
  • ok clearly this is more than two things but also: tony helps carol danvers through her alcoholism arc in issues #7, 11-12, 18, 21, 23-25, 27, 75, 85

check out my assortment of (random) happy, weird, teamworky, and/or unabashedly ridiculous tony heroics

Hi! I don't know how to put it but let's say that I fall in love with the band after I've seen the official video of She Looks So Perfect few months ago. But recently, I've lost track on them coz I've been busy with work and we don't have internet service on the house. So I just checking updates once a week if I'm lucky enough. And it seems that I'm left behind on all the happenings and updates on them. Does it make me less of a fan? The boys are really so cool and I love so much. Thank you! :)

being a fan doesn’t have anything to do with knowing everything about them, owning all their merch. It’s about listening to their music and supporting them.

Sorry if you're the wrong person to ask, but I've always wondered: why does daredevil have those little horns on his cowl? I mean, his powers aren't actually demonic in origin (despite his alias), I don't think he's ever used them to, like, head-butt someone (I could be wrong, tho), and they look more cute than intimidating, really. It just seems like they'd be an inconvenience to fabricate when making a mask/outfit, without actually providing a tangible benefit. -thx, big fan.

they ARE cute.  he uses them to distract the enemy.  they get lost in how cute they are and when they gets close enough to touch them…

hi Marc. I was raised Christian and I'm still living out my faith in college. But I have been struggling a lot with how I should approach my homosexual friends. The closer I get to them, the more it seems like it's not a choice (which is what I've been taught). I really love these people but internally I'm conflicted because I don't know what I should do from a Biblical standpoint. Please, could you provide some insight?

Hi I have a question, I've just started using a bullet journal and now I feel a bit lost about what to do tomorrow. I want to start a new week, but it will be the last day of the month, so the day after tomorrow I should start a new month. How do you keep it nice in your bullet journal?

If I was you I’d start it for a new week as Bullet Journals seem to work better on a weekly basis. I don’t actually use a bullet journal so I can’t really give advice on how to keep them but here’s some resources:

Hi, I just recently found your OUaT essays and found them insightful. Rumple is my favorite character, but I've lost faith in the writers ability to write for him. He came of one dimensional in 4a and 4b tried to make us feel sorry for his plight without showing us enough to make us think he can change. My question is are quality Gold stories still possible or have the writers screwed up so bad we should lower are expectations from now on?

Have heart, GottaHaveFaith!Anon– every season and every episode is a new chance to get things right. They seem to have ‘rebooted’ Gold with his coma this season, and minus the Dark One curse it’s a fresh start for Rumple to decide the kind of man he wants to be. I’m rooting for him, Belle’s rooting for him, and thanks to plot machinations even Dark Swan Emma’s rooting for him– I’m excited to see what happens!

Also, I don’t know what it is but EVERYONE in the cast is on-point and bringing their A+ game this season. They are all-in and swinging for the badly-CGI’ed fences. The show seems to understand that they’ve tacked away from the brilliance of S1 and are making some serious course-corrections back to excellence.

The writing is getting BETTER?

It’s only been 3 episodes and we’ve already seen the following:

  • Magic has a @#$&$%& price again!
  • Dark One curse lore missing from the past 4 seasons
  • Focus on Emma, you know, supposedly the main character
  • Snow and Charming debating about how best to lead
  • Charming being dashing and showing his self-doubts
  • Granny and the dwarves being a peasant chorus and a reality check
  • Hook admitting past wrong-doing
  • Regina and Emma fighting about trust and the proper uses of power
  • Hook and Emma discussing the nature of evil
  • The Charmings being parental to Regina
  • Belle and Hook are BFFs
  • Belle doing research and existing on-screen for more than 2 seconds
  • Camelot prom and Henry’s first crush (complete with playlist)
  • A parable about the dangers of worshipping the state (RIP Griff)
  • Awesome casting of new characters (Arthur, Guinevere, Merida)
  • New characters help reveal important things about the main characters instead of the other way ‘round (Frozen, I’m looking at you)
  • RIDICULOUSLY PRETTY COSTUMES OMG I NOW HAVE A VELVET FETISH

It’s soooo much better than S4 I could scream. I’m hopeful as hell, Anon– grab your velvet cap and hold on, ‘cause this season’s gonna be a wild ride.

I've only become aware of 1D at the end of 2013. So when I see the gifs and videos of the earlier days I can recognise Liam, Zayn and Niall easily. Harry seems to have changed a bit - he appears a lot more guarded and it seems like he lost all his naivite in an unhealthy way. But Louis ... it's like there are two of him. At some point I realised that I /literally/ see two different Louis's. The discrepancy is so extreme, I can't merge them to one. And that makes me beyond sad.

anon said:

Thank you so much for talking about the detrimental effects of closeting. I’ve seen fans defend Louis’ behavioral changes as simply a product of “growing up,” but they’re completely ignoring the realities of being a closeted individual, particularly a high profile celebrity. There’s no doubt that Louis has been told to tone down his natural flamboyance. From a health provider’s perspective, I can’t help but wonder how the twitter fiasco from last Monday has affected him psychologically. :(

How do we move on from love? I know I'm stuck on the past. I am struggling to let go of my boyfriend of four years. We had a bad break-up, and now he's dating someone new. He seems fine. And I am still so broken. How do I stop myself from getting lost in the memories of us and move on with my own life? I've held onto hope that we could get through this. It's almost been a year since we broke up, and I just want peace.

You truly have to let go of the past relationship. You have to truly let the relationship be closed. I recommend writing. Write. Grieve. Get it all out. Write a letter to him and burn it or through it out. Get all your emotions down and let them work through you. Try to get an understating of the past and the relationship that ended and return to your life now and be with it now. Write till you have let this go and have truly moved on from it, released it; release its grip on you. The past can grip you and hold you until you have moved through it and let it go and understood it.

Try to see that your life is now and not back in that relationship. Breathe and feel that life is now and always has been now. It just is, now. Try to get a small sense that the past only lives in your thoughts and the emotions you have now. You feel the past now and think about the past now, but those feeling and thoughts are just that, thoughts and feelings. They have no real life. No substance now. Try to get a glimpse of this now and see that the only way the past has any grip on you is from these thoughts and emotion around it. These are its pull. Try to see that they are just in you, they just pull you and that you can truly let them go and work through them and get to the peace and stillness underneath them. Try to go into them and work through them and don’t run or turn away from them and see what comes, what arises.

I hope this helps.
