Remember those who have gathered to fight for justice, for righteousness, and for the better good. Please, don’t forget about Ferguson and the shooting of Michael Brown. Don’t forget about Mexico and the 43 missing (dead) students. Don’t forget about Palestine and the countless lives that were either taken or destroyed in the name of racism. Don’t forget Hong Kong, Brazil, Ukraine, Egypt, Nigeria, and all of those masses that wanted the best for themselves, their loved ones, future generations, their country, and the world overall. Don’t forget their struggles or the message they wanted to deliver. They are our future, they are strong, and they are not to be forgotten.
It’s hard to be thankful this Thanksgiving, knowing about all of the injustices and all of the terrible things that have been happening lately, but there are so many things that these struggles have made me realize I am thankful for.
I am thankful for those who stand up against injustice, protesting regardless of the dangers these people can face.
I am thankful for those calling out racist comments made by people on social media.
I am thankful for social media for telling me more that I could have ever learned from the news networks that don’t give enough information or don’t bother enough to even talk about it.
I am thankful for those informing others about the real facts of all the protests going on around the world in Ferguson, Mexico, Hong Kong, Palestine, Ukraine, Brazil, Nigeria, Thailand, and more.
I am thankful for all of you on this website spreading the information on these events and for helping each other out.
I am thankful that I am alive, and that I get to spend this holiday with all of my family members, unlike some families that, unfortunately, will not be able to do so.
I am thankful for all of you out there who are fighting for a better future, who are calling out others for racism, murder, kidnapping, government injustices, climate change, and projecting your own voices.
Thank you for showing the world that our generation cares, and that we want to make a better world for all of us and other future generations.

I was tagged by pretttylegolas~ Thanks :3 ________________________________
Rule 1: Always post the rules
Rule 2: Answer the questions the person who tagged you asked and write 11 new ones.
Rule 3: tag 11 people and link them to the post.
Rule 4: Actually tell them you tagged them.
1. Favorite TV-show?
Shit, I can’t decide on just one show…! But at the moment it must be Doctor Who~
2. If you could be anyone (for example, a fictional character or your best friend) for one day, who would you be?
I would be Matt Smith. And I would just look at myself naked the entire day.
3. What is the #1 thing you want right now?
Ehehehe… I have a crush :3 So, what I want most is to spend time with him/her (not giving up any info about the person, not even the gender!)
4. Drawing super-realistic drawings, or the best singing voice in the world? Why?
The best singing voice in the world. I can go on for long periods of time without drawing, but I cannot go one day without singing~
5. Video games or movies?
6. What is your greatest weakness?
I am a perfectionist. I spend too much time on petty things because of that :‘3
7. Which countries have you visited?
I live in Finland, and I’ve visited Sweden, Estonia, Denmark, Poland, Ireland, Italy, and Greece~
8. If you could fulfill all your hopes and dreams for the future, what would you do, what would you have and where would you live?
Oh no, this is too hard a question :'3 I suppose I would be able to work in both of my dream jobs: pilot and model :D (Shut up, a girl can dream, right?!). But realistically speaking, I want to live in Finland, or at least in one of the Nordic countries, and have a cozy little house in a peaceful neighborhood. Perhaps a family, too, but that’s not absolutely necessary since I manage just fine by myself.
9. What event in your life has been the most meaningful to you?
One thing comes to mind though, but it’s not the most uplifting one: one time when I was in high school, I was crying in the school corridor because something bad had happened to me. I was surrounded by people, but everyone ignored me, even my friends. That was when I realized that I can only rely on myself. This has had it’s good effects, but also bad ones: on the one hand I’m more independent, but on the other hand it’s hard for me to open up and trust others with anything :/
10. Bunnies or kittens?
11. If you could remove one bad thing from the world (a disease, hunger etc.), what would it be?
MY QUESTIONS (some may be repetition of questions I made before, sorry!):
What would you name your future kids?
What is the most accurate feature of you that your Zodiac sign usually has?
How many languages can you speak?
What is the most common misunderstanding that people have of you?
What makes you like a person romantically? I.e. what does it take from a person for you to like him/her?
What is your favorite song at the moment?
When was the last time you stayed up just to talk to someone? Who did you talk to?
What’s the bravest thing you’ve ever done?
You have to take only ONE of the next three people with you on a deserted island: Jensen Ackles, Benedict Cumberbatch, or Matt Smith. Which one will you take?
I was tagged by therealaaa to do the nine-favorite-albums-thingy, so, in the order in which these albums were on my iTunes, these are my nine favorite albums.
WARNING: I AM STILL EMO TRASH (OOPS)
1. The Devil and God are Raging Inside Me by Brand New
Honestly, this CD gets me through tough times. I really like the sound that Brand New has, and the lyrics here have a lot to do with the problems that I tend to face, from religious doubt to feelings of not being good enough. It’s kind of depressing, I know, but most of my music is depressing to begin with so whatever. Besides, this album makes me feel, ironically, like I belong, even though it talks a lot about loneliness and feelings of exclusion.
Favorite Song: Not The Sun
2. Folie a Deux by Fall Out Boy
I don’t care (see what I did there???? *cricket noises*) what anyone says about this album, this is by far Fall Out Boy’s best album. The sound is like nothing I had heard before when I first listened to it, and the lyrics go beyond the superficial meanings you understand when you first listen to it. I don’t know man, the songs here make me feel everything all at once, it’s a mess, and I love it. Also, this album has some of the best bass lines of all the songs Fall Out Boy has released, and that says something.
Favorite Song: Disloyal Order of the Water Buffaloes
3. Hesitant Alien by Gerard Way
This album was actually kind of a (pleasant) shock to me. Like, when I first heard that Gerard Way released his own music after MCR broke up, I was expecting it to sound a lot like Danger Days or Conventional Weapons, but his sound here was so different, I fell in love with it instantly. It’s like if you mix MCR, David Bowie, and Tegan and Sara all in one album and then you get this weird baby/album. Also, like almost all the songs I listen to, this album has me feeling some type of way, I get the chills.
Favorite Song: Brother -or- Maya the Psychic
4. Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys by My Chemical Romance
Believe it or not, out of all the albums that MCR put out, this is my favorite. I dunno, man, I just love the energy, the passion, the creativity in this. It was so theatrical, which I know is the case for all MCR eras, but this one specifically really spoke to me. Also, the different sound that MCR put out there with Danger Days was a good mix of all the sounds I like– the heavy guitar, the smooth bass lines, pop-like background music, even the synthesizer.
Favorite Song: The Kids From Yesterday
5. The Pinkprint by Nicki Minaj
If you didn’t see this coming, then you probably haven’t been following me long enough to know that everything I do is for Nicki at this point. And The Pinkprint is such an emotional, danceable, upbeat, honest album (also, she got Beyonce to feature in a song????? count me IN). I love the way she raps, and I can pretty much slay on the dance floor while crying and eating a bucket of ice cream while listening to this. Come one, I mean, how can ANYONE not like this?
Favorite Song: Pills N Potions
6. Paramore by Paramore
Did anyone actually think I wouldn’t include Paramore in this lmaoooo. Even though listening to Paramore was what led me into my awkward, music snob, emo phase in the 7th grade until like sophomore year, I still love them to death, and this album really topped it. I honestly listened to this album and nothing but this album for 6 months straight because of how obsessed I was with it when it came out in 2013. This self titled album made me so happy because they were happy, because the band didn’t have any toxic feelings between band members, because Hayley was in love, because they were finally experimenting with new sounds, because this was a new chapter starting on a good foot for this band. The music videos were also amazing, and when I first saw the music video for Now, jfc I LOST IT. It was like a spiritual reawakening almost, and the songs were so relatable, especially the short interludes played on the ukulele (honestly, I never thought I’d hear this instrument in a Paramore song and then it hAPPENED). The love, passion, energy, and creativity that was put into this album changed me for the best, and I will never forget the first time I listened to this album in its entirety.
Favorite Song: Last Hope -or- Future
7. Heartthrob by Tegan and Sara
This was the first album I heard by Tegan and Sara, believe it or not. I loved the upbeat sounds of these love-y dove-y/heartbreak songs, and Tegan and Sara have an outstanding voice. The way the instruments sound too, I can honestly say that I would still buy this album if it were only instrumental, no lyrics by the duo. You can blame this album for my rapid obsession with the duo, too. After listening to this album over a thousand times, I downloaded all their other albums, and I’m talking EVERY SINGLE ONE, and listened to them too. God, I love Tegan and Sara.
Favorite Song: Drove Me Wild
8. Greatest Hits by Queen
If you know me personally, then you know that Queen is my weakness. I haven’t been into them for very long now, not as long as, let’s say Paramore or MCR, but when I first started listening to them, I just really connected with the band and their sound. Now, I don’t know much about the band like I do with twenty one pilots, let’s say, in that I don’t know a lot about the bands lives or the band members’ backstories (besides Freddie Mercury, that is), but the songs that they have I feel are timeless. This album specifically has all of their best known hits, which is why I included them here, because no matter how much I listen to the songs in this album, I never get tired of them, and they don’t feel old or outdated, they sound like something that can be played for years and years, through several generations, and everyone knows who they are and people still appreciate the music.
Favorite Song: Somebody to Love
9. Blurryface by twenty one pilots
WE ALL KNEW THIS WAS COMING. GIVE ME A SKI MASK AND PAINT MY HANDS BLACK BECAUSE Y’ALL KNOW HOW I FEEL ABOUT THIS ALBUM. Honestly, the day that I first listened to twenty one pilots was a life changer. They express and sing about all the things that I hear in bits and pieces in all the albums above. It’s the religious topics Brand New talk about, the sense of belonging MCR sing about, the person-to-person conflicts people face that Paramore express, the feelings love give you like those that Tegan and Sara sing about, the continuous switching of beats and the rapping Nicki does, the sense of reassurance and the anxiety one feels that Fall Out Boy basically preaches– I can go on forever about twenty one pilots, especially this album. I love that they’re being more theatrical in the execution of this album and the performances, more metaphorical with their lyrics, and you can hear the growth of both Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun through the songs. Vessel is my second favorite by the band, but Blurryface isn’t just an album, not just a story, it’s an experience. I also LOVE the mixed sounds that 21P does with the instrumental parts of their songs, because, even though they’re listed as alternative on iTunes, we all know that it’s hard to pinpoint their genre, since it’s like a rock-rap-electronic-emo-pop-r&b-ukulele-ish ball of goodness. It’s really hard to talk about how much I like it, it’s my favorite album at the moment, but I think you get the idea.
Favorite Song(s): Stressed Out -or- Doubt -or- Ride
