just the reminder i wanted today

anonymous asked:

I spent 8yrs listening as some were convinced that Obama would be a dictator. That he would implement Martial law or manufacturer incidents, as they believe he did with Sandy Hook, to make us believe Martial law was necessary. I never feared or believed any of those things. I fear them from Trump. My mom spoke with me today about how Trump has reminded her of Hitler and Stalin. Yet I hope that we're as wrong about Trump as those people were about Obama. I don't want to be right about this.

I’m with you on all of this. It drove me crazy when people were like, “Clinton would’ve just been another Obama!” And I was like, “But what’s wrong with that? Obama was a pretty good president!” 

So yeah idk what the hell is going on anymore and I’m hoping his supporters will wake up and realize what they’ve voted for. But I’m not holding my breath.

I have like five or six more FiCoN asks and I promise to get to them tonight, but I’ve gotta run for a bit. In the meantime… just a reminder that I’m always looking for possible one-shot ideas about Ameliam. I’ve got quite a bit lined up, but could use more and I’m always willing to consider what you guys want to see (and now you have some bigger clues as to what lies in store for them after today’s update). So… anon or not, feel free to ask away! Thank you all again for your continued engagement (you guys are THE BEST!)

Everyone in the show and those around it.

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

A reminder to anyone with dissociation/depersonalization, or anyone else this may apply to!

Earlier today (November 6, 2016) at about 1:00am the clocks were set back an hour! 

You did not lose time, dissociate, or hallucinate. Clocks on your laptop and smartphone (as well as most TVs I believe) will be set to the correct time, but any clocks that plug into the wall will have to be reset to the correct time. This is why the clocks in your house are set to different times.

I just didn’t want anyone to be concerned or panic when they woke up today!

friendly reminder that the five steven universe episodes released today are OFFICIAL, INTENTIONAL UPLOADS, not LEAKS, that watching an episode in its proper context before it airs on tv is not a SPOILER, and that unless you have A NEILSEN BOX, your viewership is ABSOLUTELY MEANINGLESS. in fact, watching it on the cn website or app WILL support the show because CN will receive ad revenue. if you don’t want to watch it that’s fine and i will respect your wishes and tag any potential spoilers, as i encourage others to do, but please don’t get anything wrong about the circumstances of this. cartoon network has been known to do this in the past for shows such as Gumball and Regular Show, often with no warning.

“You’ll never truly understand a verse until something in your life makes you see it and appreciate it in a whole new way.”

I was feeling so down for the past week because of something. Today, i opened the Qur'an to a random page and subhanallah. Of all the surah’s in the Qur'an it could’ve opened to, and it opened to Surah Yusuf. And i found myself crying because of the ayaats i was reading.

Sometimes, things don’t go the way you wanted it to and it hurts. But you just have to find the strength to push the pain aside and remind yourself He is the best of Planners. And He will never leave you empty handed.

What is to come is better than what was.

“So patience is most fitting.”

[Surah Yusuf: 83]

and its not that I miss YOU in particular. Its just that I miss having someone always there. and you were always here, you were here to reply to my texts, and you were there to call whenever something exciting happened.
You were just here. and now your not, and I don’t just miss you as a person, I just miss having someone that I could talk to all the time.
I miss having someone that wanted to listen and that was here when I just needed to hear some nice words to get me through the day.  
and although you weren’t all that great, at least you were here. at least you picked up when I called. 
Now I just feel so alone. I don’t have anyone to talk to and I don’t have anyone to tell good news to. I always almost call you out of habit but I have to constantly remind myself that your not my person anymore. 
That you don’t care about the $20 I found today, and that you don’t care if I’m having a bad night.
and I don’t know if I want you back, I just know I want someone to listen to me and be there for me because going through life alone is too damn hard sometimes.
and I’m having one of those nights where I really need you, but you’re not here… no one is. 

I just don’t want to live alone.

confidence. I honestly forget baekhyun struggles with his own confidence, because we so often see him up there on stage; doing what he loves the most. I’m reminded whenever he makes himself seem small or when he talks in a whisper like voice. I was reminded today, because even though he belted out those high notes and was being his cute self, he also didn’t show his face or wanted anyone to re-upload. and it truly baffle me that this boy, who’s part of korea’s most successful boy group. this boy who’s the most popular member of this group. - sometimes struggles with being insecure. but I also understand that this is exactly why he sometimes feel like that too. so I ask you guys to always and I mean ALWAYS, leave encouraging comments on baekhyuns sns. he does so much for us and I just wants him to be happy.

Budget Witch Reminder: Affordable Herbs

Shopping at the local Asian/Turkish grocery store!

This is probably old news to everybody, but I just wanted to remind people that there are options to get comparably large quantities of dried herbs (even ones you wouldn’t find at larger chain stores) and condiments for very affordable prices at your local Asian or Turkish grocery stores. 

Just today I got sage (15g), bay leaves (12g), rosemary (45g), mint (20g) and clove (50g) for a mere 8 bucks, three of the herbs in those super nice glass containers that are reusable! (and look kinda nice)

I know that 8 bucks can mean food for 2 days for some people, but still I wanted to remind you guys in case some of you are in need of herbs and don’t want to spend 2 bucks on just a few grams that you’ll run out of soon. Plus it’s always nice to support local businesses!

Happy witching!


For the video for That Girl, our 10th and final video from LY2D, we brought director @allisterann out with us on the road in Canada and the US to capture a behind the scenes look at our life on tour.

This year has been incredible. We have nothing but love and gratitude for our amazing fans. Our time on the road this year reminded us again just how lucky we are to do what we do, and how proud we are of the community of fans that are drawn to what we create.

We hope you have enjoyed all 10 videos as much as we have! I will be doing a Facebook Live chat at 10am PST today, so come ask me all the questions you’ve been wanting to ask all year!

With a lot of coverage on the Women’s March On Washington today and marches around the US and world, I just want to issue a reminder to the people who can’t be there. People who can’t miss a day of work, people like me who are chronically ill and not capable of long marches, people with young children who can’t afford childcare on weekends, people who don’t have the resources to make it to a protest. 

I see you. I see your support. Keep up the fight where you can. Remember that marching is not the only thing you can do- keep up the phone calls, and petitions, and letters. You still have a part in this fight.

And to the marchers, the people who can make the great public standing we need? Stand strong. Stay safe.

Everyone, fight on.

I had a humbling experience today. 

I had a student in my class this semester who grated on my nerves every day. They asked random questions all the time, interrupted me, and argued with me  (not always rudely, just annoyingly) when I told them to correct things. They drove the other kids in the class crazy, I know, but I never allowed the students to say anything rude to the student, and I never let myself lose my temper. The one time a student did act rude to this particular student, I put a stop to it. I’m v. adamant in my classroom that no one should be singled out, made fun of, or treated with disrespect.

The student grated on my nerves more and more as the class went on. Forgetting assignments, not paying attention to the syllabus, more arguing. Though I was firm a few times and corrected the student, I never lost my temper, yelled, told them to get out, etc. I hate singling out students in class, mainly because it bothers my social anxiety, so I’m super aware of it with my students and how I interact with them. I try to limit any interaction that will put them on the spot or cause them discomfort, even if they’re driving me bonkers.  I generally corrected them, then just continued teaching. If they argued with me one on one, I explained their error and how to correct, or tried to offer suggestions to improve instead of getting mad.

Today, as the student left our last class, they gave me a hug and thanked me for the class and everything I did for them. They told me they unfortunately didn’t get into my class next semester, and then said I helped influence their future career/area for their future topic of study.

I almost cried. This student, who I was irritated with today and had to hold back from snapping at, hugged me and told me I influenced them only an hour later.

It was a moment where I realized why kindness and patience is so important. I could have lost my cool, been harsh with this student, etc, but I didn’t, bc that’s just not my nature. I just am not that kind of teacher. I consider myself too soft-hearted because I see my students as ppl I want to help succeed in any way I can, and many times go out of my way to help when it isn’t deserved. Often, I wish I was harder, stronger, harsher, colder as an instructor, but in that moment, I realized that the way I do things is important, too. 

I just realized afterwards that you really don’t ever know when you are influencing someone or being a positive influence. I never would have in a million years thought this student even cared for me at all. I’m really glad that I chose each time to take a breath and talk to the student calmly, to treat the student nicely during every interaction despite being annoyed most days, and to put an end to any comments from my other students. 

It made a small difference at least, and with the world like it is right now, I’m taking every small victory and positive I can.

Just want to make a quick reminder to anyone stalking my blog rn that there’s no guarantee that something will happen today. We are so brilliant and amazing, and we’ve picked up on as many clues as we could, but this does not gauruntee anything. For our sake (and frankly, for Mofftiss’s sake), I sincerely hope something does happen.

But on the off-chance that it doesn’t, give ‘em hell.
