王嘉尔: 今天是我们 三周年。三年以来,经历过愉快的事也经历过伤心的事,也听到很多不同的声音,有赞的也有骂的。真的非常累的时候,我也不知不觉地问了自己一个问题 “我做的所有东西,真的是我想要的吗?真的是值得吗?” 。 但每一次都是同一个答案。 可以在舞台上跳舞唱歌,觉得很开心。 更开心的是,有这么多人陪着我,支持我跟爱护我。我觉得非常荣幸,真的比什么都值得。 可以答应你们,一定会让你们为我而感到骄傲的。 谢谢你们 我的你们。 #王嘉尔##三周年##GOT7##我的你们##拼命让你骄傲#

Today is our 3rd anniversary. In these 3 years, we’ve been through happy and sad times, have listened to both compliments and negative comments. Whenever I’m really tired, I will unknowingly ask myself, “Is whatever I’ve done really what I want? Is it worth it?” And everytime it’s the same answer. I’m very happy to be able to perform on stage. What makes me happier is that I have a lot of people accompanying, supporting and loving me. I feel very honoured, it is really worth it. I promise to make you guys proud. Thank you.

So today I went to see Hidden Figures for the first time, and I have a whole big lot of feels about it, but what I want to share with y’all right now is this:

I was seated next to a small child who could not have been older than six, and during one of the earlier scenes with Katherine Goble and Lt. Col. Jim Johnson, I overheard said small child whisper ecstatically “I ship them.

(And had to remind myself very firmly that it is probably bad manners to strike up a conversation about shipping with a stranger’s child in a movie theater.)

<p>15th January 2017</p>

Today I have been doing a lot of thinking about what my therapist said about me practicing yoga “if you can say hand on your heart you are not doing it to change your weight or shape then go ahead” at first I thought I would be doing it to change my weight and shape but now, I am not so sure. I want to challenge myself. I want to see the change in my flexibility. I want to stretch my body because it feels good. I want to do something nice for my body for once instead of punishing it with starvation.

Hi! If it's not too much to ask, could you please try and point out something positive about the whole thing? I've been feeling so devastated today and I'm too new in the fandom to say "ok i've had enough let's move on". I still love the characters and the ship, but I don't know what to think or do now. I'm telling myself that they're bffs and kinda raising rosie together and there might be s5, but.. idk. I cried a lot today and I hope this fandom doesn't just fade away!

The most positive thing to have come out of this, for me, is that it’s produced a community of amazing, passionate, creative and talented LGBT people who I know will be braver and greater than these writers were and create the art and educate people on the queer history and go the extra mile for the LGBT community that these writers should’ve and didn’t. I’ve met some of the most amazing people I’ve ever known thanks to TJLC, and I have no doubt that there will be people from this community who go down in queer history for what they go on to do. We deserved better and if nobody else is going to give it to us, I have no doubt that we’re going to create it ourselves.

It’s been a bit tough getting Donald’s Mom on board with the fact that we have specific eating plans. She can cook the most delicious meals (the woman is a genius in the kitchen), but she uses oil, butter, and all that stuff that we don’t use a lot of anymore. Today was the first full day we have eaten all three meals together, and I think she found it helpful to see what we eat. She asked to have one of the rice cakes we have for our afternoon snack, and we cooked a delicious meal of chicken and broccoli where she threw a bunch of spices together and dear god I feel like I could eat it forever.

I think it’ll get easier as we settle into routines, but for now, it’s a bit chaotic (life in general lol). Since Friday, we have been working on pulling up carpet and cleaning out a lot of Donald’s grandparents’ things. There’s furniture and papers and knick-knacks and crap EVERYWHERE. But his mom is really grateful to have us here, and it’ll benefit both sides (us by saving money, and her by providing financial help for her to get back on her feet). Just a change adding a third person into the housing mix 😂

Moodboard of today, thanks to @thunder-lightning-strike! I feel…smiley, kissey, dancey, I feel like laying on top of a bear carpet…alle zusammen. 

I tag @ma-larkin, @ollis-beard, @ohshitlindemann but don’t feel like you have to do this. I just had lots of fun finding the perfect reactions to my day, lol. 

Elisabeth 20th Anniversary Gala: MizuTod version.

I saw the Mizugumi full costume version of the Elisabeth Gala again today at Bunkamura Orchard Hall. It was so much more impressive than at Umeda! Partly it may have had to do with having so much better seats (1st floor 7th row and yes we paid a lot extra for them…) than last time. Sitting down on the first floor on stage level and not having to use opera glases so much really helped me get into it. But mostly I think the energy was just higher (a sort of senshuuraku feeling as this was the last show with this particular cast).
MizuTod certainly felt more intense and demonic this time around. His bitter disappointment when rejected in the letter-writing scene was still awesome but not as much of a turning point as in the Umeda performance. Ai to shi no rondo was definitely improved (less smugly casual) even though MizuTod might not have seemed as tormented by having feelings as in 2007. There were more paws or claws though somewhat hindered by the microphone. In the beginning I did find Mizu’s singing voice a little too feminine at times compared to 2007 but I either got used to it or she gradually got more into her Tod voice.
MizuTod didn’t hiss in maladie, which is a pity, though he did smile cruelly after kissing Rudolph. They way they end the scene without having a trapdoor to disappear through is MizuTod coldly tosses Rudolph aside, towards the exit, which goes so well with that face. (I don’t remember for sure, but I think MarikoTod and BunRudolph just stayed in the kiss until they turned out the lights instead.)
Mizu also kept another crucial peculiarity in the gala concert: the way her Tod turns all grim and serious at the very end of the final scene. In this performance I think she was so touched by senshuuraku with TonamiBeth she could barely do it, but the change was still there. I kind of think it means “oh shit”, like MizuTod has been so obsessed with getting Sisi he hasn’t really thought about what will happen next, what eternity with her is going to be like, what it will mean to him to love (not just desire). But it might also just be proof that despite the embrace and the white clothes MizuTod hasn’t actually turned nice, he’s still a demon, now possessing his prize.
All in all, Mizu was just so on top of her game! I’m so glad we returned to Japan to see this because it really was the next best thing to going back in time and seeing the 2007 Elisabeth!
I can also happily report MizuTod no longer had the glossy lips I disliked in Umeda but more of a semi-matte beige-brown lip, maybe even an ombre, which truly improved his look. The original makeup was still toned down, with skin a much more natural colour (though more shimmery) and less demonically arched brows (Mizu still knows how to knit her brows when needed though!). Mizu has such an interesting face, perfect for a stage actress. Her profile and cheekbones are amazing and the few lines added in the last ten years only suit her, and Der Tod.
I guess TonamiBeth was good, I just barely noticed her next to MizuTod, except her chemistry with Mizu. Yes I do remember: she was magnificent in Rudolph’s funeral scene, and in the final scene, and in the duet starting act 2. And very funny when pretending to catch frogs or something with Lucheni when first introduced to Franz!
Speaking of which, GaichiFranz is so flashy with his red-blond hair and colourful makeup and dandy moustaches. The flashiness and Gaichi’s face shape and nose and high bangs always remind me of a parrot.
While Juri played Lucheni at Umeda it was Wataru this time around. I think WataruLucheni was a better match for MizuTod, matching his sinister intensity. I also think that Wataru played him a little differently than the sleazy entertainer in the hoshigumi and anniversary versions. He was still that, but also scarier, crazier.
We had a reunion with TeruRudolph instead of Toyoko. Teru really is the best at being dragged violently across the floor in Yami ga hirogaru, even when there were no physical connection.
Among the reat of the original cast, last time I was more occupied with Hamako’s Sophie but this time around I spent more t i me staring at Naga’s Grunne and all the amazing little reaction faces she made. I’m also really impressed with Tomomi’s Max, I love me a good Max who really loves Sisi and conspires with her and worries about her.
Let me just repeat again that MizuTod’s costumes look so much better live than on the DVD! Especially that floor-length velvet coat with black and burgundy sections and silver embroidery just on one side which he wore in the duets with Sisi and little Rudolph looked amazing! I never really noticed it before but it’s now my new favourite MizuTod costume. The deep purple velvet suit with the odd asymmetric raspberry red/dusty rose lace shirt he wears after also suddenly looked gorgeous. And wow, I guess the velvet in the Saigo no dansu uniform is really a very, very deep emerald green, not black as I always assumed.

There was just one downside to seeing this: sitting there so close to the stage made me think about what it might have been like to experience the reunion of MarikoTod and AyakaBeth in full costume one week earlier…

Sorry, this is kind of late… actually a lot late, and I’ve gotten a few of these on anon over the last month or so that I haven’t answered, but I’m actually feeling good enough about myself to do this today so I guess it’s time :)

Personnaly, I prefer the ''old'' Alfie and Zoe (in 2014) they were much simple and natural, there wasn't such big things as now and we could more see ourselves in them, I don't know if you know what I mean ;) Also when Alfie used to come to Zoe's flat it was cute because we were sure we would get Zalfie stuff now that they live together it could be more than one week without seeing them together, I don't know it's just what I think, no offense ;)

To me, they’re the same people so I don’t “prefer” them at any point in time. I just definitely preferred when there wasn’t all of these “big projects” and “big things coming” because it doesn’t seem like they have enough fun anymore.
Zoe herself said it in the vlog today, there’s just a lot more stress and I don’t feel like they’re enjoying the years as they should be. They kept saying 2016 flew by and I think the reason for that is that they never stopped working, there was basically no time off.
Maybe it’s just me missing the old youtube times when they could all hang out without having to rush off to a project.
I don’t know, I just feel like they would be able to get back to where they want to be if they just took a break from all the big projects. I know I would enjoy it more xx

anonymous asked:

Is there any particular topic you feel extremely passionate about (besides veganism) that you've never gotten the chance to talk about on your yet channel yet?

Education, the law of attraction, caffeine addiction… there is a LOT! I have a list of like 50 videos I want to make lol

I do think education is the biggest one… there are so many young people telling other young people to not go to college or to drop out. I would NOT be where I am today without my education. There are alternative routes than college, sure, but those routes only work out for a small percentage of the population. 

And you don’t need to go into debt to get a college degree. I completed my first year of college completely for free at a community college on a scholarship that is attainable for most people and transferred to a more expensive university. 

I just think there is tons of bad advice out there on YouTube, so be careful with whose advice you decide to follow ;)

And yes, more vids to come FOR SURE!!

Another Snapchat photo. Today I worked a 9 hour shift from 1-10pm. It was a hectic inventory day and I really wore myself out. Gotta get back to it at 7am tomorrow. I work a lot, typically between 55-60 hours a week. I’m actually okay with it for now, it really helps my anxiety to have the extra income and I can start saving for the two most important things: Robyn’s transition and my trip to Wales. I just… sometimes need to remind myself of these goals on tough days like today, and in general when I feel physically and mentally exhausted. Just keep telling myself that it’ll be worth it.

You know who’s beautiful?

Everyone in the show and those around it.


Okay good night, just wanted to get that off my chest. Phew, feels good.

I don’t post a lot on social media these days and I rarely if ever post anything personal. But I have two personal stories that I’ve never really told publicly that I feel I need to tell today.

About seven years ago there was a letter in my mailbox from the White House. To be clear, not just the White House, but from the newly elected President Of The United States. Wow, maybe this had something to do with his appearance in an issue of Amazing Spider-Man, but oddly enough it was addressed to my then 8 year old daughter. It seems that unbeknownst to her parents, my little girl mailed a letter to President Obama wishing him well and offering him advice as only an 8 year old could.

And he wrote back.

In the letter he thanked and commending her for passing along her thoughts and engaging in this wonderful thing we call Democracy. To this day I still tear up remembering the look on her face as she read that letter realizing that not only did the President Of The United States write back, but that she lived in a country in which this was possible.

Two years later I was sitting in my office at Marvel when my phone rings and a gentlemen claiming to be an assistant to the President Of The United States tells me that the POTUS would like to commission me to do a piece of art for him. Thinking it was a prank I told him I’d love to discuss it further but I was rushing off to a meeting and would gladly call him back. I took down his info, did a quick Google search and confirmed that the number on my caller I.D. was indeed coming from an office in the White House. Wait, what?!?

As it turned out a close friend of the President, Patrick Gaspard, who was the Director of the White House Office of Political Affairs, was leaving to take on his new role as the Director of the Democratic National Committee. Mr. Gaspard happened to be a HUGE Marvel Comics fan. We’re talking a full on True Believer since childhood, and President Obama thought that a perfect parting gift for his service to the administration would be a custom piece of art featuring Mr. Gaspard, himself and several Marvel heroes standing in front of the White House and for some godforsaken reason he was asking me to draw it. I of course had to get approval from the highest levels of Marvel where it was met with nothing but enthusiasm and a big thumbs up.

Now as unlikely as all of this sounds, nothing was more surreal than when I was sending off rough sketches to White House for the President’s approval and getting back notes. I’d never been more thrilled to get art revisions in my life! Once the piece was finished inked and colored by Danny Miki and Richard Isanove respectfully, I received word that the President was thrilled with the results and Mr. Gaspard was over the moon with the final framed surprise gift.

Admittedly, for those close to me that knew about the assignment, I’d make it a point to boast as often as I could that I was now officially the very first United States Sequential Artist Laureate. Quite frankly, I don’t see why that shouldn’t be a thing.

A short time later I was at San Diego Comicon signing books at the Marvel booth when someone extended a hand for me to shake. I looked up and the gentlemen said, “Do you recognize me?” How could I not, I had spent a week drawing him. It was of course Mr. Gaspard and he wanted to thank me personally for the art and to express how much Marvel had meant to him growing up and still means to him today. Patrick and I have kept in touch ever since and while his current tenure as Ambassador to South Africa is coming to an end, I’m looking forward to catching up with him when he’s back in the States and making good on my promise to bring him on to the set of Defenders or taking him to a Mets game.

And yes, I was lucky enough to meet President Obama. like I said, I don’t usually like to post things of a personal nature, but today I feel compelled to simply convey my own humble experience of having the great honor of meeting the most powerful man on the planet when he was in office. A man who was nothing but kind, appreciative and generous to me, who demonstrating a genuine love for the medium of comics and took more time than he ever needed to to express his appreciation for the work I created and the medium of comics itself. The same man who also took time to write a simple yet eloquent response in 2009 to a little girl who express love and hope, not for herself, but for her President and his future.

Godspeed President Obama, thank you for your service. I have no doubt and look forward to how you will continue to serve and change our world for the better.

shout out to the trans kids who have come out and still aren’t recognized 

who’s family misgender and dead name them on a daily basis

who are told “it’s a phase” and they’ll “get over it”

who are told that their family wont help or support any kind of transition because their families can’t “morally agree with it”

who’s families act like a trans child is an inconvenience or something to be ashamed of

we deserve better

the rogue one squad built a rebellion on hope, and when they couldn’t carry that hope anymore because their chances were spent, luke, leia, and han brought it to the finish line. luke didn’t “get all the glory;” he had that greatness thrust upon him in the cruelest way possible: he lost his two parental figures, and he lost obi-wan (another paternal figure) in a short span of time. but he never gave up. he easily could have, but he knew that he’d fall down a hole he’d never be able to crawl out of. he never hardened; he was never resentful of his sensitivity, even though many predicted it would be his “undoing.” he turned it into a strength instead, and i think that’s a really beautiful way to write a character. the rogue one squad would be proud of him.
