it's all in chinese

I love it how when I speak in another language people tell me that I “have an accent”
Like, yeah, I have an accent in my first language, why are you surprised by this?

anonymous asked:

Since you have such beautiful skin, do you have any skincare tips or product advice for us with not so great skin? Thank you in advance! :)

Ah, I’ll try. Just be aware that I used to have terrible acne.

  1. If you’re going through puberty, it will most definitely pass.
  2. Know your skin type and your skin. It will help you get the right products and the right skin routine.
  3. Washing your face helps a lot. Wash with lukewarm, not hot water.
  4. Switch up products every once in awhile. Switch products when you feel like your acne’s “resisting” the product you’re using.
  5. Eat healthy food! Try to drink a lot of water.
  6. Not touching your face actually helps a lot.
  7. Change your sheets often.
  8. If you’re oily, oil blotting sheets is a life saver.
  9. In Chinese medicine, acne is considered to be a “heat sign.” This article can show you foods you can eat that could help reduce the heat. It’s funny because in medical astrology, having excessive Aries/Mars (fire) energy could result in acne.

*whispering* you don’t have to do this. you can turn around now and confess your sins and hope they just sentence you to community service or something

foods of thedas :  TEVINTER

as with most things in tevinter, the food aspires to be effortlessly stylish & oppressively opulent. for those who can afford it, every meal is fine dining, combining rich flavours with expensive ingredients. it is a matter of pride for magisters to be able to transport exotic items to their villas, no matter how far away the source is. the most impressive ingredient, however, is lyrium, which is often mixed with spiced wine or tea at the more decadent parties. being able to acquire these ingredients illustrates wealth & power, and many use this to their full advantage with the tradition of VENDITATI LUCRIS – the offering of food made to a new neighbour, as both a greeting and a statement of superiority. traditional dishes include fugu sashimi, bun bo hue, honey-roasted figs, and red jasmine tea.

Do you ever watch a show with a lot of poc representation and think “ok now they’re just trying too hard.” I find myself thinking that every now and then and I have to correct myself! I have gotten so accustomed to watching a series of white families/friends with the occasional poc friend. (See: Friends, That 70s show, Supernatural, Sherlock, Bones, Gilmore Girls, HIMYM, Drop Dead Diva etc.) So when I finally see a show with accurate representation of a poc, I automatically think “they’re just trying to gain approval and get more ratings.” That is such a gross way of thinking!!! Especially from a poc myself! Why is that my first thought? Because seeing white actors get good roles has become the norm for me. So much so, that I sometimes find myself preferring it. And that’s messed up.
