it's all about give and take

lol yall so heated im seein people threatening to delete their blogs & shit as if it's gonna fix the situation and i'm gettin mad flashbacks to #cutforbieber LOLOLOL

but like really y'all it’s out of Shawn’s control, the deal is done, charlie will probably give an apology and what not.

also, i see people talking about how Shawn has been silent about like Trump and the social issues of our country and are gettin like upset that he hasn’t been vocal in politics but like

he isn’t american
he most likely isn’t enthralled in american politics in his free time

stop expecting him to be this super hero activist and shit

like he’s an almost 19 year old dude tryna juggle a career, i highly doubt he wants to spend the milliseconds he has to breathe immersed in American Politics.

Things about Yoosung Kim y’all seem to forget
  • likes to take on multiple hobbies
  • is actually rly fucking smart, he was at the top of his class in high school, he just doesnt put in the effort in college (can u blame him tho like depression took over this boys life)
  • he likes to cook
  • hes been asked out by multiple people throughout high school and college but just rejected them for whatever reason
  • hes a lightweight its so cute
  • he has a rly big heart like he’d take a bullet for everyone in the RFA
  • hes a mamas boy (even if he tries to deny it)
  • he loves animals
  • he hates being called a child (understandable, hes a grown ass man, hes 21 years old)
  • he thought about working for jumin directly and jumin didnt refuse (in fact hires him in jaehees route) which means yoosung is reliable and capable enough to be jumins assistant just as much as jaehee
  • can be a bit possessive
  • is super passionate
  • literally im giving u all these other qualities yoosung has because hes more than just the “cousin complex” character and hes more than just rika, he needs more love

You know when I first started watching Yuri on Ice, I never even imagine this series will give all that it did, will never have thought this series was going to take the chances it took. They were not afraid to produce something others wouldn’t even dare think about, they gave us such a fascinating love story, they gave us a world with which many could identify. And it just kept going, it just kept giving us such unbelievable moments that it didn’t seem real. I’ll never be thankful enough to everyone who was involve in this production, the people who created this world. After everything, regardless of its ending, I can finally say, from the bottom of my heart YOI’s definitely one of the best series I’ve ever had the pleasure to come across.

to be clear, anger about the british taking prized jewels from punjab and then refusing to give them back all these years later isn’t JUST about the damn jewels.

egyptian activists lobbying for ancient artifacts to be returned to egypt from france and all other stretches of the world isn’t just about the sentiment.

those things were taken forcibly from a people in a dehumanizing way, and a refusal to return them reinforces the idea that those who colonized still hold some form of power over those who they colonized. they are pieces of history that were taken with little to no regard of the people whose history they represented

A guide to being a vocal citizen

For people wondering how to take action post-election of a racist demagogue (pulled from Twitter and cleaned up):

Make a spreadsheet or a file for your representatives with names, addresses to their offices, phone numbers, and contact forms. Put everyone there. Make a note in your calendar app to check in on issues once a month.

Pay attention to news. If you get angry, upset, or worried, seek support from friends but ALSO shoot these reps an email, too. Be courteous but firm and blunt. It’s a numbers game. Often we remain invisible because we don’t go to events and rallies and can’t be physically present. But we can attach our names to emails, we can write letters, we can be vocal. We don’t have to be invisible.

You can do this with your national reps, state reps, and local reps. If someone reps you anywhere, note them. Open a line and revisit it. It’s hard work and slow. One email at a time. One letter at a time. One call at a time. Emails are easy these days, so splurge every few months on a stamp and send a letter if you can. Put your humanity in front of these people. Flout it. Some won’t care, but others will. Change ONE mind and results can cascade.

Rural areas are bubbles full of bigotry and now it’s newly revealed. But we white people who live here have the clout and power! We can speak up when our reps say terrible things, and do terrible things, and vote terrible ways. We can go “I am disappointed in you.” It’s work, but as we’ve seen the last six months, it’s time for us to do that work. If someone goes “who are your reps” you gotta know. If you don’t know and you’re mad about this election, it’s time to create that file and keep it with you and use it.

The time for social media rants only is over. Or, do those, but maybe pull those threads out into a paragraph and send them to your reps. And don’t ONLY email or contact when things go badly. Also reach out when things go right. Even if they voted AGAINST something. Treat them like you would want to be treated if you were wrong or mistaken. But we’ve gotta reach out and let them know we’re here.

Anyway, I know this is hard work. If you need help collecting your reps, give me a ping via DM and I’ll help you get started.

The thing I find sad about this is that Andrew probably does believe “it is just a key.” He gives, gives, gives. And people take, take, take. Sometimes they take what he hasn’t willingly given. Andrew is so used to people (like Kevin and Aaron) taking from him without appreciating what he has done for them that he probably doesn’t believe it’s a big deal. But Neil doesn’t instantly take from Andrew. Neil’s not used to receiving gifts. He hesitates and acknowledges its worth. With him, it’s not an expectation.

Which is important because there is something else to consider here too. Neil helped pay for the car, but he does not feel he is owed the right to a key. He’s honoring his deal with Andrew. The car belongs to Andrew to do with as he wishes. 

The value of the key giving for Neil is finding a home, a place he belongs, where he can be himself. It’s a great symbolic gesture for Neil’s character arc. And it works both ways. What happens when someone respects Andrew’s boundaries? Believes in his promises? Honors deals? 

Well, we know Andrew gives Neil keys. What do keys do? They let people in.

And Andrew is letting Neil in the only way he knows how.

key-called-home  asked:

syeda i need u to think about neil asking asking andrew for a yes or no and when andrew says yes and closes his eyes expecting a kiss neil gives him a lil peck on the nose/cheek instead ive been thinking about this all day

  • canonically its andrew who asks for yes or no bc neil has learned to read andrew he knows when its a yes and when its a no and when he’s unsure his question is almost always silent 
  • andrew is crouching down to pour food for sir and king when neil walks in the room
  • and he does a slight double take bc it’s neil’s job andrew doesn’t care for the cats he does so neil is a bit taken aback 
  • when andrew gets up, daring neil to say a word, neil just smiles that careless smile he’s grown used to by now
  • and just.., kisses the tip of andrew’s nose, laughing a little when andrew’s nose scrunches and neil sees that spark of light in his eyes 

i dont remember if I’ve written this or I just had a mental tally of notes

but 

I have an au

where apollo and klavier try to get Wright and Edgeworth to go on date/ outing with each other 

but it keeps not working because they are very busy and avoiding each other

so they try to get them just a little tipsy 

and at first it seemed like a great idea

but they didn’t expect both of them to be such lightweights??

and at first its funny cause 

its just klavier and apollo taking pictures of the drunkles being cute

nothing too bad they are joking with each other

but then they lose the drunkles

and they have to get ema to help them find them

its like 3 am before they are spotted and taken home

the next morning apollo can hear Mr. Wright

 screaming in the bathroom about something

because apparently him and Edgeworth

somehow convinced a piercing parlor to give them matching piercings with

magnetic best friend charms

Edgeworth wrote up a contract

 and has the rough draft of said contract in his pocket

with both of their signatures all over it

and its just

“the reason we dont hang out all the time is because we turn into a bunch a dummies and make legally binding bad decisions” 

Mr. Wright still hasn’t told Edgeworth that they are technically married

hasnt mustered up the courage

Quirks of the Signs

Aries: while they can be pretty “snap judgment” types they’re always forgiving and surprisingly un-judgmental when it comes to things they’ve experienced themselves. Nothing else though

Taurus: sensitive to the sound of people chewing, mouth noises.

Gemini: easily spooked/surprised especially by movies

Cancer: YOU NEED TO ASK THEM FOR PERMISSION TO SHARE ANY INFORMATION THEY GIVE YOU EVEN IF ITS NOT PERSONAL INFORMATION

Leo: you have to be ready to go when they’re ready to go, or else they’ll rush you and if you show any sign of not rushing they’ll get frustrated

Virgo: supplements. They all take health/vitamin supplements.

Libra: quality over quantity every time and they don’t fuck with anyone who doesn’t feel the same way, they WILL lose respect for you

Scorpio: very particular about the fabrics they wear

Sagittarius: they’re low-key hoarders and will get angry if you try to give something of theirs away, even if they literally never use it or have no use for it

Capricorn: no half-assed cleaning; yes, some are messy but even when the messy ones decide to clean something they basically become mr. Clean

Aquarius: they’re all secret (or not so secret) drama queens and they live for it, and most of them are the type to say “I hate drama” then immediately start gossiping

Pisces: things have to be in the “right” order (although their order usually looks like chaos and mess, but know there is a method to their madness and sometimes you may understand it; but often you never truly will)

hahaha im tryin y’all haha im rly tryin :’‘‘‘‘)

i dug through my art tag and don’t think i ever posted this before???? if i have posted it before sorry here it is again slightly fancied up here take it.

i am || this close to just cramming Stas into a polyam relationship with Darsela and Creviss because a) im literally desperate for some sweet cute fluff to think about to distract from Other Stuff That Is Probably Not Going To Work Out 2) itd give me more reason to draw stas who is easier to draw than creviss iii) height differences d) majro would probably never stop screaming

the filename was inevershouldhaveletthemdance.psd and its rly accurate

For all the amazing quotes the show have given to Amethyst the best gem, this one is my personal favorite

okay but the idea of steve rogers being out as bi in the mcu is very important to me

steve rogers being a huge role model for bi kids. steve rogers showing up at pride events. steve rogers kicking biphobic ass.

Bedroom Cleaning Cheat Sheet

So I have been thinking about starting an organization and home etc. blog but I wanted make a tester post to see if it would be worth the time and work. I find that a lot of people have a hard time cleaning and maintaining a neat and clean bedroom, so i wanted to share my personal system that I use. If it helps you and you like the tips please like or share. Good Luck!


Step 1 Dishes

Out of all the things that should not be in the bedroom, kitchen and food items are definitely on top. Gather all of your dishes and utensils and bring them to the kitchen. Don’t worry about washing them right now, it can wait. Also collect any take out containers (chinese, pizza boxes etc.) and toss them in the garbage.

Step 2 Make Bed

Making your bed instantly gives your room a much cleaner look. If your sheets are clean simply make the bed. If its time for a wash gather them up and toss them in the washer for a quick clean, or place fresh linen.

Step 3 Strewn Clothes

When we are looking for clothes it can be easy to forget to put things back and eventually your can hardly see your bedroom floor. Lets start by gathering every single piece of clothing on the floor. You can either make a pile for them in an empty space, section off some closet space for them or if you can, purchase those clothing racks that you can get at most department stores and hang them there. Just keep them separate from your other clothes for now.

Step 4 Sections

Now your going to section your room into either half or in fours. I suggest fours but it all depends on your room size and what you personally prefer. Now this is not literal. You don’t have to move or do anything. This is just a way to mentally divide up your room so the task of cleaning it doesn’t seem so hard. Steps 5 and 6 your going to repeat for each section and then move on.

Step 5 Garbage

Armed with a trash bag collect any thing that needs to be tossed out. Mainly anything that can’t be swept up. 

Step 6 Kept Items

Now your separate your KI’s (kept item aka anything thats not garbage) into piles. For example makeup, pencils, lotions etc. Then place them in their appropriate area one by one. I suggest keeping a small Misc. bin for items that don’t have a place at the moment, but don’t leave them there for too long or else you’ll end up with a stockpile.

Step 7 Repeat

Now your going to repeat this for the rest of the sections

Step 8 Tidy Up

Now that each section is done start by sweeping the entire floor then go over it with the vacuum. Afterwords wipe down all surfaces and windows. 

Step 9 Clothes

Now that your room is clean and you have a clearer space, begin going through the clothes you collected earlier and toss anything that needs to be washed in the hamper and place back all other clean items.

END TIP:

I suggest opening all windows for 5-10 minutes to freshen and clear the air. If its nice out leave them open. Spray some light room mist or burn a gentle candle to tie everything together!

OPENING UP YOUR HEART TO SOMEONE…

…isn’t always the easiest thing to do,

but giving your heart to someone is about a million times harder.

Love is an interesting thing,

so many people have so many different definitions of love

that it’s hard to tell when it’s really happened to you.

It always sneaks up in its own way.

It can hit you like an unexpected fast ball,

or it can take nearly your whole life to creep up on you

when you have lost all hope of ever falling in love.

One thing to always remember,

that I found out the hard way though,

is the difference between loving someone and being in love with someone.

You can love your best friend with an unconditional kind of love that will never fade,

the kind of love that tells you he or she always has and always will be there for you.

Then there is that special kind of love the kind

that is not only emotion, but action.

The kind you feel when that special someone has crept or pushed their way into your life.

The kind of love that has hit me early in life.

You can tell someone or someone can tell you that you don’t know

what love is, you’re to young, you have no clue the depths

or hurts involved with real true love.

It’s all false. You can have that special kind of love at 13 up until
the day you die,

even then you might not know the exact meaning of what it is to love someone,

but just because you can’t explain it, doesn’t mean you can’t feel it.
