in 20 years i will try again

Seeing this scene again, I’m trying to understand what this Viktor frame means.


Does Viktor, after seeing Yurio’s presentation, realize that his time as a Russian skater has passed? That everything is over?Thinking that you have the career that you invested 20 years of your life is over.

Not that he is not happy about the result of the Yurio, but because they are from the same country, maybe this touches the Viktor more deeply
After all, Yurio trains with the same coaches and in the ring as the Viktor when he was younger. The old being replaced by the new.

I’m not saying that Viktor felt sad about all this, but that he accepted and feels good about it, as it shows in this frame.


But here comes the other side of the story, 

Yuuri believes that Viktor wants to participate in the competition as an athlete again. He believes in this by the reactions that Viktor has with the presentations of Yurio, Chris and Otabek. 

So maybe what Yuuri has thought all this time is that he does not want to steal Viktor from the sport he loves and dedicated himself to. This is a theme that has permeated since the beginning of the anime: the world is angry Yuuri for taking Viktor out of the sport. We know that this is not so. That Viktor for 20 years neglected everything that was not related to figure skating and that now, alongside Yuuri, he can really feel complete and forget all that solitude that permeated him (this is made clear in ep10 and in the opening sentences of Ep11). So, if Viktor is nostalgic with the whole GPF, he does‘nt regret being Yuuri coach. He really dedicates himself and always strives to be the best he can.

However, even if we know this, but Yuuri does’nt know. After all, Viktor did not open on these intimate issues with anyone. So in the Yuuri’s point of view, separating from Viktor is letting the person he loves return to the sport by which he is known, Yuuri still loves Viktor and just wants his happiness.

So this…

It is the way he found to make the person he loves happy even if it hurt him

I was just looking through the friend suggestions on Facebook. A very old ex girlfriend from 20 years ago popped up. I truly can’t see how they made that link.

I’m very privacy conscious, and have been trying to use Facebook again after a 4 year hiatus, but with a negligible footprint on FB.

I haven’t had contact with my ex for twenty years
I don’t have any shared Facebook contacts with her
I am using a completely different email address for my new Facebook account that she cannot have.
I have never used the Facebook Messenger app on my phone.
I have never used the Facebook app on my phone.
I have never shared my contact list with Facebook.
I have never shared my mobile number with Facebook.
I have her in my contacts on Google Contacts, and hence in my phone contacts, but only an old Hotmail email address that I would surprised she even still uses. No phone number for her.
I have not viewed her profile, nor searched for her by name on Facebook
I even use a different name on Facebook to my legal name (I’m trans, so shoot me)
I only ever use the Facebook mobile website on my phone
I don’t live close to her, in fact I live in a different country, so we don’t have any location proximity
The only thing I do have is WhatsApp on my phone, but since I haven’t shared my mobile phone number with Facebook it can’t have tied my Facebook profile to my WhatsApp contact entry. I also don’t have my Facebook email address in my phone/Google contacts against my entry. It’s one I setup purely for my trans identity.

This is seriously creepy. How the hell have FB figured that out?

Update
I think I’ve figured it out. The steps go like this:

I delete my old FB account 4 years ago. I also delete the content of that account manually first (all photos, timeline, mobile number, etc), change the email address to a Hotmail alias address. I then apply for a permanent account deletion. I receive the deletion confirmation on that alias address.
My ex isn’t in my friend list in my old account, but her contact details were part of a contacts upload I did for the old account.
My old FB account had the mobile number I have still today. Friends will have that number and my pre-alias email address in their contact list.
I create a new FB account. I create a brand new email address, and never share my mobile number with FB for the new account. I also refrain from using any of FB’s apps except WhatsApp.
A current FB friend has FB Messenger or WhatsApp installed. They tied my contact entry to my old FB account since they have my old account’s email address and telephone number.
That friend changes the name of my contact entry in their phone via the name change that one of my FB current contacts made in their phone, which notified FB of the change via one of their apps on my friend’s phone.
FB matches my old account to my new account by name.
Hence, FB have tied my new account and my old account together, which was of course my express desire to avoid that.

How does FB Messenger tie to your contacts out of interest when it is installed? I’ve never used it, so I’m not sure how it integrates into your contact list. Is it like WhatsApp that offers you a WhatsApp link against a contact?

Introductions.. again.

Hi. i’m Harlow Avin.

I’m a 20 year old bookworm who loves to drink tea. 

Wifey to the love of my life and best friend, Harrison. momma bird to my baby girl Arabelle (pictured below) & expecting our second little bird soon.  

I attempted to start a blog once before but between work and trying to build our dream home I quickly became too busy to continue.

Hopefully this time around it’ll last however and I’ll be able to share my journey through motherhood everything lovely along the way.

Until next time

I can’t help it, but I’m starting to feel a bit concerned for Bunsen Is a Beast. The show overall performed decently, but coming this Saturday we’ll be halfway through the first season (20 half-hours have been ordered). Nick barely reran the series; the next rerun is currently scheduled for April 2. It was apparent that Nick is trying to correct many of its past mistakes with its programming decisions after their ratings downfall a few years ago, and now they’re No. 1 again with a refreshing new branding to boot. But it seems that they still can’t shake off their expectations of a new cartoon should be an immediate hit like SpongeBob/The Loud House, and Bunsen could be shipped off to the Nicktoons Network if it’s granted a second season. I’m hope I’m wrong about this.

anonymous asked:

Do you ever log on and see all the ship wars and just age 20 years and get really tired? I want to enjoy shows again :(( I want s1 supergirl back :((

I’ll be completely honest with you. I never really gave two flying fucks about ship wars. I understand that people see chemistry in different capacities and that they want whatever ship they choose. That’s totally cool. The only ships that I have problems with are the ones that are toxic. That’s a no go for me. I just try to ignore it as much as possible.

Sorry, for updating so sporadically with old stuff lately. Pokemon GO has me in it’s grip and I’m using my rare free time to catch some Pokemon in the wild with my equally disturbed friends. In Germany they are even closing bridges and streets for cars to guarantee the safety of the players. It’s insane.
Since I’m a fan of the franchise for 20 years and played every edition that was released so far it’s kinda funny so see all these ‘ewww you are still playing pokemon’ dudes now running around with a higher level than me. xD

I try to enjoy the good weather as much as I can at the moment and all internet activities are kind of barely existing but that will change again.

In light of Carmilla Act III being released soon, I thought I’d make a Soulmate AU for Carmilla
  • Since Carmilla is basically immortal it’s only Laura who keeps reincarnating.
  • Whenever Carmilla sees her she gets all nostalgic
  • “I’ve been doing this for only you for centuries”
  • Carmilla never says “I love you” first
  • Laura is always trying to be pure and good
  • “Goddammit why do I keep having to save your dumb ass”
  • “I won’t lose you again!”
  • Laura always has to sacrifice something for Carmilla
  • Carmilla always remembers the lives where she couldn’t save Laura
  • Laura rarely remembers Carmilla but if she does, it takes a long time
  • Carmilla always panics when she doesn’t see Laura for more than 20 years

I commissioned the nerd from ddaroll and I want to cry, look how precious he is! Thank you so, so much again, it’s perfect! 

I love the dynamic outlines, the wonderful colors, his precious face, the pose, just, uff, it’s wonderful, thank you so much!

ELI5: How could Germany, in a span of 80 years (1918-2000s), lose a World War, get back in shape enough to start another one (in 20 years only), lose it again and then become one of the wealthiest country?

This is a really huge question, but I’ll try and be brief. There are a couple of things to keep in mind about Germany; it is one of the largest and most populated states in Western Europe, and it has had a very strong industrial base for many many years.

After WWI, Germany was in pretty bad shape. It owed a ton of money in war reperations. This issue was dealt with by the Nazis basically just refusing to pay them.

More importantly though, Germany might have lost the war, but even the winners were in really rough shape. No one was willing to stand up to the Nazis until it was too late. When they started to remilitarize, no one stepped up because they either thought that the lot they were dealt in WW1 was too harsh, or because they were too war-weary to care. When Germany started to absorb parts of its neighbors, it was justified by claiming that it was done either to protect German nationals, or because the Germans had been invited to do it (which is partly true in some cases).

Further, once WW2 started, the Germans had a couple big benefits. Most of their immediate neighbors were too weak to do much, France and Britain wanted to avoid bloodshed. When they invaded Poland, they got help from the Soviet Union. Once the war really got underway, France folded almost immediately, and the British were pushed off of the continent not long after. France was gone, Britain was technically still at war but couldn’t mount an offensive, Italy was an ally, America, Spain, and the USSR were neutral, and much of Central Europe was already under Nazi control. They were able to take most of Europe without much of a fight.

Helping matters even more, Germany benefited from having some pretty revoltionary tactics, scientists, and equipment. In particular, the Germans wrote the book on blitzkrieg and tank warfare, which proved instrumental.
After they lost the war, the country was split into four administrative zones, occupied by the Americans, British, Soviets, and French. The American, British, and French zones were evnetually consolidated to become the country of West Germany, while the Soviet zone became East Germany. The Western Powers poured a ton of resources into rebuilding West Germany and getting them back up to speed (so that they could help fight the Soviets in the event of WW3). Since they’re still one of the biggest and most industrial states in Europe, it’s only natural that they’ve had a strong economy ever sense.

Victoria Beckham Gushes About 'Romantic' David Beckham

Despite being responsible for the cutest family around, David and Victoria Beckham are constantly plagued with split rumours, with many ominous sources and mysterious insiders trying to claim that all is not well behind the scenes.

However, Victoria has once again gushed about how much she ruddy loves her husband, her family, and her life - and if this isn’t enough to silence the haters then we have no idea what is.

Speaking to People magazine, the fashion tycoon explained: “David is very romantic and we regularly do lovely things to surprise each other.

"The first time I met David, nearly 20 years ago, we were at a football match. After the game all the other players were having a drink with their friends and David was standing with his mum and dad and his younger sister Joanne. Family is important to him.

"When he proposed he asked my dad first, which is such a respectful thing to do.”

Alright, Vic, we’re already seriously jealous that you are the one lucky enough to be married to him - no need to rub it in.

The star also revealed that even though she and her hubby are busy being two of the most famous people on the planet, they always dedicate time to their four children, 16-year-old Brooklyn, 13-year-old Romeo, 10-year-old Cruz, and four-year-old Harper, adding: “Both of us have to travel with work, but we always make time for each other and time for the children. 

“We always support each other and our family.”

Meanwhile, David, who was named People’s sexiest man alive last week, revealed that when he told his kids about his award they all burst out laughing.

He shared: "We kind of laughed about it with the boys and the boys kind of laughed at me and said, ‘Really?! Sexiest man alive? Really?’

And with Brooklyn fast-approaching his dad’s level of fame, we wouldn’t be surprised if he is the one to nab that title from his pops in a few years time.

alright but please consider: vampire astronauts

vampires don’t need to breathe, right? i mean idk how they would get food but they would be perfect to go into space bc they don’t need air so no clunky spacesuits

and they live forever so 10-20 years of space travel won’t feel that long in their lifespan

imagine vampires forming colonies on the moon or other planets

imagine we finally send astronauts to pluto or w/e and they dissapear and we’re like alright let’s try again and we do this a bunch of times before we realise that the first crew that we sent was fuckign VAMPIRES and they keep EATING OUR ASTRONAUTS

A white man called police to report “hoodlums,” then he shot and killed black man Kouren-Rodney Bernard Thomas.

39-year-old Raleigh, North Carolina, resident Chad Copley called 911 early Sunday morning, telling the dispatcher that “We got a bunch of hoodlums out here racing … I’m on neighborhood watch … I am going to have the neighborhood meet these hoodlums out here racing up and down the street. It’s one in the morning. There’s some devil in them. They have firearms and we’re going to secure our neighborhood. If I was you, I would send PD out here as quickly as possible.”

Only minutes later, according to the Post, Copley called 911 again to report that “We got somebody that got hit,” referring to Kouren-Rodney Bernard Thomas, a 20-year-old black man, who was later pronounced dead at a local hospital.

Thomas and a friend, David Walker, had been trying to get into a crowded party near Copley’s home on Sunday, Walker told the Raleigh News and Observer. When he and Walker saw what they thought were police lights, they began to run; that’s when Copley shot Thomas, Walker said.

In his second conversation with 911, Copley claimed that “There’s frigging black males outside my frigging house with firearms.” But Walker had a different recollection of the party.

 The Picture on the right was me a Year ago and the picture on the left is me last Friday. I never weight myself so i cannot tell you how much weighed and how much i lost. It is also not important for me because i just wanted to be healthy. I wanted to be able to run after my 3 kids and feel great. I cut out all Soda. Drink lots of water and Matcha tea. I use the 80/20 Rule and try to workout every day. After having 3 kids in four Years i had a really hard time adjusting but one day i told myself this is it i wanna feel like myself again and i never felt better. I have no idea how much more my body will change but i cannot wait to find out. I thank God everyday that i do not feel anymore like i did a Year ago.

I made a lot more of an effort putting together a photoset last year for TDOV, but I’m rushed this morning, so enjoy my mediocre selfies!

The top picture is of me when I was 14 (I’m on the right, if it’s not obvious). Now I’m 20, and I was on testosterone for 3.5 years before stopping last year because it had really done all that it could for me! I try to keep an androgynous appearance, being that I’m nonbinary, and I’m not really sure if I succeed. Well, I get called “miss” every now and again, so maybe it’s a bit successful, haha.

HOLY FUCK PEOPLE CAN YOU USE YOUR BRAIN FOR LIKE 5 SECONDS AND NOT BOYCOTT “ABOUT RAY” LIKE DO YOU EVEN KNOW HOW MOVIE STUDIOS WORK? IF THIS MOVIE BOMBS YOU THINK THE INDUSTRY’S GOING TO ACTUALLY GO “WELL I GUESS WE SHOULD START CASTING TRANS PEOPLE”? BECAUSE THEY AREN’T! IF ABOUT RAY BOMBS THE STUDIOS WILL GO “WHELP, I KNEW THAT WAS A STUPID IDEA” AND I’LL HAVE TO WAIT AT LEAST ANOTHER 20 YEARS FOR SOMEONE TO TRY AGAIN.

I got a whisper from some belf paladin saying “group me” and I didn’t respond, and 10 minutes later he tried again with, “hello????”

I told him I didn’t know who he was and he answered, “paladin”

I didn’t respond and he tried again, “where are you?”

I said, “If you’re asking for a portal I’m not going to, because ‘group me’ is a rude way to ask.”

“ok”

five minutes later

“dongen?”

I asked him if he was drunk.

“no!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

… So I asked him if he was ten years old. 

“9″

Oh.

So anyway that’s the story of how I’ve been spending the past 20 minutes painfully trying to explain to a 9-year-old how to use the LFG tool.

Trying again!
I am looking for some nice people to chat with and maybe becoming friends. :)
I’m an 18 year old German girl and most of the time really bored. I occasionally play video games and read, I like languages and daydreaming about travelling. I am not good at describing myself, I guess it’s easier to get to know me by just writing me :) I am usually nice to others, so don’t worry. :D
